Bendega Villas

Bendega Villas The villa’s design combines traditional Balinese architecture with clean modern lines, numerous indoor and outdoor spaces that allow groups to gather but also allow the privacy to get away from everyone and everything. Set in almost an acre of wonderful tropical gardens overlooking the rice fields, the villa is a short walk from the beach and a short drive to the chic restaurants and bars of Seminyak.

Location

Surrounded by terraced rice fields and only five minutes, walk from the beach, Bendega Villas (meaning `fisherman in the local language) borders a small fishing village of the same name in the district of Canggu, southwest Bali. Despite its rural setting the villa is only 20 minutes drive from the restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak, an hour from Bali`s cultural center of Ubud, and 30 minutes from the international airport.

Tour the Villa

Entry

The villa is entered via gates which slide open to reveal a 2m-high black-stone Budha head serenely welcoming visitors to the property. The entry courtyard provides ample room for parking and is dotted with frangipani, oil palms, jasmine, yuccas and African tulip trees. Guests walk over sandstone steps across a large koi-filled pond to the main entrance doors.

Sitting room

Two sets of tall sliding doors at the entrance to the main building open to reveal a spectacular open-air, double-height sitting room which faces the garden and pool, and overlooks the rice fields beyond. This space, which seats 12, is furnished with two oversized black teak sofas and armchairs set around matching coffee tables. The black upholstery is brought to life with vibrant contrasting green and orange cushions. Along the back wall of the sitting room, an ancient canoe has been

topped with glass and transformed into a 6m-long table; a stunning centerpiece for a buffet dinner.  Above the canoe, 10 antique carved wooden panels are framed against the golden sandstone walls.
A galleried timber walkway runs above the sitting area and then ducks back to the upstairs of the bedrooms, providing another opportunity to enjoy the views.

Dining room and Kitchen

To the right of the sitting room, glass sliding doors lead into the formal, wooden-floored, dining room, displaying a massive 5m-long solid Marbau dining table which will seat up to 20 people. More sliding glass doors open onto the garden at the front, while a large mirror is set in an antique door frame at the far end of the room. A charming old green glass-fronted cabinet houses glassware and crockery next to a door which leads through to the kitchen.

The kitchen at Bendega Villas reflects the owners’ love of cooking. The fully-fitted, air-conditioned, modern kitchen has dark wood cabinets and cream-colored Corian work tops. The chef’s biggest delight is the range of equipment– including an extra large oven, a Jura Impressa coffee machine, waffle-maker, Cuisinart panini toaster, ice cream maker and dishwasher, to name but a few. The kitchen is also equipped with two large fridges, a freezer and wine fridge in the pantry.

Library

On the other side of the open-air sitting room is the comfortable library and adjoining games room. A set of floor-to-ceiling shelves contain numerous books on Bali and Indonesia as well as more popular holiday reading. The library has a 50-inch flat-screen television with DVD player and more than 50 international satellite channels. An L-shaped sofa and two floral printed chairs offer plenty of comfort in front of the TV.

Games room

The games room is surrounded by glass and can be opened up on three sides to the gardens if desired. A high, round table and bar stools plus two easy chairs provide seating for spectators. While the full-sized pool table is the centre of attention, there is a wide selection of games, for those less adept with the cue.
Across from the library and games room is a delightful guest washroom. Finished in warm Indian Sandstone, and furnished with a very beautiful antique cabinet featuring colorfully painted Indonesian characters, this washroom opens into a small walled garden planted with frangipani trees and decorated with carved stone panels and pedestals.

Pool and Pool Pavilion

Across the lawn, directly opposite the living room, the 11m x 11m stone-tiled infinity-edged swimming pool overlooks the rice fields. As well as being large enough for some serious swimming, the pool is perfectly positioned for sunset cocktails, which can be enjoyed from the wide stone ‘shelves’ set into the pool at just the right depth. To the right of the pool a large open-sided pavilion is home to a huge L-shaped daybed, upholstered in waterproof orange Sunbrella fabric and scattered with bright, sunny cushions; and you can roll straight into the pool from the matching beanbags at the edge of the pool deck.
The round table and chairs at the centre of the pool pavilion will seat up to 10 people for casual outdoor dining.  This is a great place to congregate at the start of the day for a ‘come-as-you-please’ breakfast. Behind a sliding louvered door at one side of the pool pavilion is a water cooler, bar fridge and sink. Around the corner a door leads into a guest changing room with toilet and shower.

Garden Balé

To the far side of the lawn, perched over another koi pond that leads to one of the bedrooms, is a peaceful relaxation balé furnished with a comfortable daybed, floor cushions and two petrified-wood stools.

Gym and Massage Room

To the right of the entry courtyard, a stepping-stone pathway leads across the lawn to the gym and massage room, housed in its own private pavilion. This room is divided by a folding carved wood screen, with a massage bed on one side and an exercise bike and treadmill on the other.  While they exercise, gym users have the option to watch TV or listen to music, which can be programmed specifically for this room. Although surrounded by glass on three sides, the gym and massage room is fitted with blinds which can be pulled down for privacy and the room can be fan-cooled or air conditioned.
Tucked away behind the gym is an outdoor bathroom with toilet, rain shower and, the pièce de résistance, a huge bathtub carved from a single piece of black granite, reached by stepping stones over a tranquil pond. The walled garden surrounding the tub is planted with frangipani and palms and a Flame of the Forest tree – a sublime place to relieve those aching muscles after a good work-out.

Bedrooms

Every bedroom at Bendega Villas has lovely open views across the greener-than-green rice fields of Canggu.  The villa can accommodate eight people in three king-bedded rooms and one twin bedroom (which can convert into a fourth king-bedded room). There is capacity to add two more fold-away beds for children if required.  All bedrooms are generously sized, tastefully furnished, and have en-suite bathrooms and outdoor balconies.

Master Bedroom – Ground Floor – Purple Room

Accessed by stepping stones across a garden pond, the first master bedroom is housed in its own pavilion at the front of the gardens, directly overlooking the rice fields.  This room is private, peaceful and perfectly placed.  A canopied, four-poster, king-size bed is the focus of the room, facing a private terrace and the rice fields beyond. Behind the bed is a large, walk-through, mirrored dressing area with enough wardrobe space for even the most extended of stays.  The room is furnished with antique console tables, bedside cabinets and an easy chair upholstered in ikat fabric, custom-printed to match the other purple accessories in the room. A door at the side of the bedroom leads out to the pool and gardens.
The en-suite bathroom is vast. At one end, again overlooking the rice fields is a sunken double bathtub. Two wash basins are set in Travertine vanity tops running along the side of the bathroom while, at the far end, a large walk-in shower offers both rain shower and hand shower fittings.

Master Bedroom – Upstairs – The Orange Room

This bedroom is positioned at the far right of the upper floor in the main building directly above the dining room. Accessed by a private walkway, a centrally placed, canopied, four-poster king-size bed looks out onto a private terrace with daybed which, in turn, overlooks the gardens, pool and rice fields. To the right of the bed is an antique yellow and green painted Javanese cupboard, on top of which are two painted wooden cockerels.
Directly behind the bed, the dressing area leads through to another large en-suite bathroom presenting similar fittings to those in all the master bedrooms, but this time the super-size bathtub overlooks the gardens of the villa. Adjoining the bedroom is a study equipped with a laptop computer and printer.

Master Bedroom – Upstairs – The Green Room

At the opposite end of the upper floor another king-bedded master bedroom awaits. The large bathroom also has a separate shower and a large bathtub with views of the ocean. The room is furnished with teak console tables, bedside cabinets and an easy chair upholstered in ikat fabric, custom-printed to match the other green accessories in the room. A canopied king-size four-poster bed looks out over a full ‘wall’ of sliding glass doors that lead out onto a balcony furnished with a colorful daybed which is shared with the twin room next door.

Twin Room – Upstairs – Turquoise Room

Bendega Villas has been designed with families in mind and this twin-bedded room, with its turquoise accessories is ideal for children (the beds can be easily converted to a king size if preferred). This bedroom also features a 37-inch flat screen TV.  Fitted wardrobes and shelving, an antique console, an easy chair and bedside tables complete the furnishings. The en-suite bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and double wash basins

Facilities

Audio Visual

A Sonos digital music system, with several thousand play tracks sorted into a wide variety of genres, can be controlled remotely from anywhere within the villa. Different tracks or playlists can be played in the pool pavilion, dining room, sitting room, library and games room or gym. IPods can also be connected to the Sonos system and iPod docks and speakers are provided in all the bedrooms.
The library has a 50-inch, wall mounted flat screen TV and DVD player with more than 50 satellite channels. Two additional flat-screen TVs can be found in the gym and the twin bedroom.

Communications

Phones are situated in all bedrooms and living areas at Bendega Villas. An in-house phone system allows guests to make calls to other areas of the villa, including to the manager’s office or kitchen. All phones can make IDD calls which are charged at cost.
A laptop computer and printer are available to guests in the study and a further printer and facsimile machine can be found in the villa manager’s office.
Wi-Fi internet facilities are available throughout the villa and gardens should guests wish to use their own laptops.

Other facilities

•    Air conditioning is available in all bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as in the kitchen, dining room, gym (which can also be fan cooled), library and games room.  The sitting area and pool pavilion are cooled with overhead fans.
•    All bedrooms contain safety deposit boxes.
•    Laundry needs will be attended to by villa staff (using a local laundry service)
•    2 mountain bikes are available at the villa for guest use.
•    A gas barbecue is available.

Wine & Dine

Menus are available at the villa for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it is recommended that guests meet with the villa manager and chef at the start of their stay to discuss food likes and dislikes (or even food cravings), special dietary needs and meal schedules.  An open dialogue will keep both chef and guests happy! Please discuss meals in advance (ideally 24 hours) to allow the chef the time he needs to prepare the provision. Daily breakfast is included in the villa rate.
Once selections are made, guests can relax and enjoy delicious home-cooked food – Asian and Western – prepared where and when they like.  The chef loves to delight villa guests with his beautifully presented dishes – from roasted vegetable salads, to Balinese chicken curry, to nasi goreng (friend rice), to steak and chips. His desserts are not to be missed either – or his home-made jams and chutneys.  He is happy to try out new dishes and willing to share his kitchen with guests – especially if they can show him how to prepare their favorite dishes.
Wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks are also available on request and will be charged for at the end of your stay.
