Villa Bungadesa I (5BR + 1) 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  -  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 the pool. And the villa staff are great  -  funny, sassy, chatty when needed and gone like the wind when we wanted to be alone. A sweet touch was a surprise 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 the sea views will take your breath away.

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 kinda cool to watch movies on the 42-inch flat-screen in the breezy open-sided living room. Note the access road to the villa is a tad rough.
