Sipping a cold glass of something while watching a spectacular Bali sunset from the roof-garden balé at Bendega Rato is a memorable experience in itself. And the experience is enhanced by the super-comfortable beds, bold fabrics, tasteful pieces of art and furniture, impressive sound system and blissful swimming pool – all indicative of the care and thought Bendega Villas’ owners have put into their their tropical holiday home.

There is no shortage of places to relax here, from the roof-garden to the convivial pool pavilion, to the upstairs bedroom balconies with their lovely views. And for those who’d rather retreat indoors to the media room there’s a vast choice of movies and music to be enjoyed on the 55-inch plasma screen with Apple TV and a blue-ray DVD player, or on the integrated Sonos sound system.

Although there is an ever-growing selection of restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the villa, we felt no desire to eat out after sampling Chef Dewa's culinary delights: from pizza cooked to order in the wood-burning brick oven, to roast vegetable salad, chicken curry, cheesecake and crème brulée – everything was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious, and served with a smile. While Bendega Rato comes across as quite a grown-up villa, there’s still something to please everyone in the family and, with the option of renting the adjoining one bedroom pavilion, or even sister villa, 5-bedroom Bendega Nui, it also becomes a great place for a big group of friends to get together, or a terrific wedding venue.

Highlights

The fantastic food and charming staff; hanging out in the pool pavilion (you could easily spend the whole day here!); the great sound system and the oh-so-comfortable beds.

Surprises

The koi-pond at the villa entrance could be a hazard for curious toddlers, who will also need to be kept an eye on around the pool, and we felt that the living room was a tad formal for holidaymakers. But with the cosy TV room, chilled pool pavilion and sunset balé to chose from, there’s a place to suit all.

Thank you to the team at Bendega Villas, what an amazing time we had. The villa is so well maintained, clean and the staff went out of their way to make sure we always had what we needed. We will definitely be back and are already planning our return. The food was also exceptional and the staff were always looking for ways to improve our time at the villa. Muli was exceptional - always greeting us with drinks and towels. She made us feel extra special and like nothing was a bother. Thank you.

You all went above and beyond to attend to our every request. We were a family of 20 here for a family wedding. We all loved the villa and surrounds. There was a plenty of space for every one - in fact we did not even get the chance to use all the beautiful facilities and space around. A special mention to the villa staff, friendly, polite, respect and beautiful smiles made our stay here most enjoyable. Thank you so much for setting up and decorating the dinning room for special birthday celebrate here - it looked amazing. Thank you for looking after our mother of 82 years old. We are truly grateful for all your help and willingness to help in every way. We loved the villa and our stay.

A very wonderful villa to live in, the best villa in Bali. The villa is quite clean and the staff are very very friendly, villa is very cozy with the music on. Design is very unique than any other villa we have ever stayed. A good deal and price if stay with a large family. We are hoping to come back soon to Bendega Villa - we had a very good time staying here.

What an amazing villa - stunning interior design and wonderful service. It was perfect for our mixed-generation group of baby through to grandparent. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and they were very discreet. Also nearby, within easy walking distance, were several good cafes/ restaurants and the beach was less than 10 minutes. Can't wait to return!

Overall the villa is well maintained and all the staffs were very attentive. The only downside would be the location of the villa that is quite far. For a family with toddlers or infant the villa would suit you best. The service was superb and the chef cook is comparable to 5-stars hotel. It was a great experience and would love to come back again for the next holiday.

We stayed at Bendega Rato for an extended weekend over Easter and had a wonderful experience. The villa itself is beautifully put together and the layout really worked for us. We were 5 people in a 3 bedroom villa. The master bedroom has its own sitting room and tv den which was great if you wanted to have some quiet time away from the group. Though the villa also has a shared living area, dining room and TV room which are all very comfortable and look out to the pool - very open and fresh. Not that we did any TV watching it was so beautiful and peaceful to just sit by the pool and enjoy the gardens. The staff were available throughout the day and night to assist with any request we might have and left it to us to decide how present they were. There was some construction happening across the road which we had been made aware of beforehand but we didn't find it that disturbing to be honest... Having been to Bali quite a bit and usually staying in Seminyak I've rarely been anywhere where there isn't a little construction in the vicinity. It was a nice change for us to stay in Canggu - discovering a new neighbourhood really showed us another side of Bali. Echo Beach near by has wonderful eateries - though we were equally happy to eat out at our usual haunts in Seminyak only a 20-30 min drive away. All in all - I would highly recommend this villa and in fact we are thinking of booking again for a party in the new year - this time perhaps with all three villas in the complex together. Thanks for looking after us so well!
