Bungadesa Villas (7BR + 3) Reviews

This little enclave across the river from Batubelig beach is as peaceful and quiet as the day is long.  All we could hear at night was the sound of the rolling surf through the open windows. And the early morning view  -  from the bed in the master suite  -  over the pink-capped waves of the Indian Ocean was inspiration… at its very best!

The gardens at Bungadesa are huge and filled with soft lawns, flowering tropical plants, fruit trees (you’ve got to taste the homegrown passion fruit) and a wonderful mix of Indonesian architecture and indigenous statues. This place catches the sun and the cooling sea breezes in equal parts making for perfect sunbathing conditions beside either of the two pools.

Make sure you take the time to nip down the local lagoon-side restaurant on your way back from the beach. It’s charming and rustic and, as well as a great menu of holiday favourites, can rustle up a half-decent pizza in a flash... and the beer is always icy cold. The villa staff were great  -  funny, sassy, chatty when needed and gone like the wind when we wanted to be alone. A sweet touch was a gift for the ladies, while Nana’s home-cooking proved to be superb, especially her seafood curry.

Highlights

The indigenous architecture and interior design is stunning and unpretentious and the sea views will take your breath away. Having a 7+3-bedroom hideaway this close to Seminyak and virtually on the beach is a rare find in Bali these days.

Surprises

We couldn’t fault Bungadesa, but at a push we might say there isn’t an air-conditioned communal room for watching TV. On the other hand, it’s kind of cool to watch movies on the 42-inch screen in the breezy open-sided living room. The rustic shower room in the Lombok House is downstairs, and the two family suites (plus the two bedrooms in the Sumba House) have shared bathrooms.

The access road is a tad rough.
