Canggu villas in Bali, Indonesia

Canggu has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan and Babakan), which, until very recently, could still be described as a sleepy coastal locale. It's now one of Bali's coolest districts.

Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of eclectic restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars – especially along Jalan Batu Bolong, which runs right down to the beach. Popular spots include Finns Beach Club, Old Mans, La Laguna, The Lawn and Ji @ Bale Sutra.

Canggu is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find further south in Kuta and Seminyak. Swimming isn’t advisable however as the rips can be dangerous, but there are plenty of other things to do from horseback riding to cooking classes. Finns Recreation Club (for which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership) offers social and leisure amenities, including Splash waterpark, Bounce trampoline centre, Strike bowling, a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.

Along the coast to the north of Canggu is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.

Villa Manis

Villa Manis

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Manis is a beautiful, quiet and peaceful villa, yet at the same time we could just imagine it to be the perfect venue for a wedding or a party.  We spent a lazy afternoon by the pool being lavished with ice cold drinks and fresh fruit. Wonderful!  The only time we moved was for our massage in the on-site spa, and then again when it was time for dinner.  Being right next to a mass of rice fields is a rare treat these days, even in Pererenan, and at night as we sat on the wraparound balcony of the enormous master bedroom, all we could hear was a croaking serenade of frogs under a wonderfully starry sky.  The delightful staff took great care of us and left us wanting for nothing.  The chef is a bit of a genius, just quietly, and amazed us with some delicious meals.  It was a real pleasure to eat at Villa Manis.

Villa Pangi Gita

Villa Pangi Gita

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Pangi Gita is one of our favourite small villas of all time. We were amazed to find out it was built in 1999 – it's been staggeringly well maintained. All the surfaces are carefully polished by the staff and absolutely everything works (it’s not often you can say that in Bali). The flow of the villa from entrance down to river is very easy, giving lots of little areas to disappear off to, helped by wonderfully mature gardens.

The staff are charming although not all speak perfect English. The food we had was beautifully presented and great value for money. The master suite is incredibly romantic with its canopied bed and huge bath. Great villa – one of the best in its size and category. Coming back to check the villa again five years after our original review, everything is still meticulously maintained and presented, and that river keeps on a-singing as it passes by this most beautiful spot.

Villa Simona Oasis

Villa Simona Oasis

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Simona Oasis is a delightful villa in a lovely peaceful location.  Clearly the original owner was as passionate about his villa as he was about his wife to whom the villa was a gift.  The level of detail and finish throughout the property is excellent.  Equally passionate is the villa manager, who is always keen to make sure his guests have a good stay.  He speaks excellent English which makes up for the lack of English from one or two of the other staff.

The food we were served was nicely presented in the open-sided living/dining room – a great place from which to admire the villa grounds.  The pool is a delight and the sunken garden in front is perfect for a party or barbecue.  The bedrooms are very generous and the highlight for us was the huge ensuite garden bathrooms, particularly the master room, which is outstandingly romantic.  A great villa for parties, groups, families and yoga retreats.

Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa

Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa lies right beside Pererenan surf beach, 10 kilometres north of the downtown Seminyak beach scene, so it‘s very private, very secluded and very much all yours.  An organic boundary of trees and shrubs, instead of the usual high stone walls, makes a pleasant change, and there is plenty of space, greenery, and wide open vistas of the ocean.

 Our stay at this villa was blissful. We enjoyed the comfortable informality, not only of the staff but also the layout of the villa and garden.  The staff were keen to please; they indulged us with delicious home-cooked goodies, freshly squeezed tropical fruit juices and service that came from their hearts.  The swimming pool is free-form and fun but also long (and deep) enough to do as many laps as you deem appropriate.  We lazed in the garden balé and hung out poolside until just before sunset, when we headed upstairs to have a couple of beers and a game of pool in the open air lounge.  The west coast of Bali is renowned for its magnificent sunsets, and this lounge has to be one of the best places to watch it happen.

Villa Bougainvillea

Villa Bougainvillea

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Bougainvillea truly is an escape from the world at large. From the discreet driveway to the lush river banks surrounding the villa, we had a sense of being hidden away in a very private home, and this feeling continued once we were settled in, with each bedroom being screened from the rest of the villa by the tropical gardens. Whilst we appreciated this sense of escape we also quickly realised that the villa’s spacious living pavilion overlooking the pool was a great social hub and enjoyed lazing on the daybeds or sitting for leisurely meals at the solid wood dining table, being looked after by the friendly villa staff. The pool was definitely the focal point of our stay: its setting, between the steep stairs to the living pavilion and the river below the pool’s own infinity edge, under a canopy of colourful local trees, gave a wonderful sense of drama. It was easy to spend hours literally soaking in the calm tranquillity of Bougainvillea.

Any feeling of isolation is, however, only a clever illusion as the villa is a mere two to three kilometres from the increasingly popular beaches of Berawa and Pererenan where there is also a growing number of restaurants. Bougainvillea is also one of eight private villas which make up the Pangi River Village complex so multi-villa rentals would make this an ideal location for larger groups (see location section for links to the other villas). The Staff were very efficient and helpful and happy to arrange anything from shopping for groceries to massages or tours. If you require a car and driver, however, this is charged extra and you need to plan ahead.

Villa Bunga Wangi

Villa Bunga Wangi

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

To quote Sadi, "A garden is a delight to the eye and a solace for the soul." Here at Bunga Wangi there is inspiration and beauty at every turn; the early morning sunlight glinting on the golden birds of paradise, the fallen frangipani scattered along the stone paths, the late afternoon shadows dancing across palm fronds. The garden is an endless source of wonder, and makes me yearn to do something creative - actually I take hundreds of close-up photos of flowers. We loved the meandering pathways, the constant trickle of running water, the pool fringed with tropical foliage and the intricate detail in everything, from the stone statues to the elaborate floral carvings in the furniture and doors.

We happily made allowances for the dated design, faded furnishings and occasional hints of must – this was part of the rustic charm and authenticated the Balinese experience. But this villa won’t be everyone’s cup of tea: there is nothing sleek or sophisticated here, no contemporary edges or gadgets (apart from iPod docks and satellite TV), this villa is like your favourite old jumper, perhaps a little tatty around the edges but warm, cosy and a perfect fit.

Villa Frangipani

Villa Frangipani

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

The Balinese equivalent of an English ‘Rose Cottage', this simple villa is enveloped by trees and traditional Balinese plants and flowers making it a paradise for birds as well as for guests. The stream at the garden end adds a wonderful background accompaniment. This villa is all about relaxing and letting the world go by. The strong teak furniture, terrazzo floors (slippery when wet) and alang alang roofs give the whole place a wonderful warm sepia feel, albeit an ever so slightly musty one. We loved the place and could happily overlook the many imperfections of age (a holed floorboard or a loose plug) for the overall soothing effect Villa Frangipani had on us: it was clear a week would pass all too quickly here.      

Perhaps the rooms were a little too sparsely furnished – some more bright art would go a long way to offsetting the very natural tones – and the lack of mod cons might bother some guests (the TVs and stereos in the villa are pretty ancient!). As with most villas in Bali, the mosquito nets were welcomed, although not as necessary as you might anticipate given all the wildlife in the gardens (expect frogs and even the odd monkey). A quick read of the guest book gives you a clear indication that guests (both kids and adults) have loved their stay at Villa Frangipani – the general themes: a warm friendly staff and a relaxing ambience: a great place for a family or two to recharge.  Upon our return it was nice to find that the Wi-Fi was now complimentary. Apart from that it is still the country idyll that it always was with the only alien sounds being from the occasional plane flying high overhead. What a pleasure to be back.

Villa Kavya

Villa Kavya

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Kavya's clever design encouraged us to divide our time equally between the various spaces on offer. It was as pleasant reclining on the wide sofa looking out over the lawn as it was lying on a sunbed by the pool, swinging in the hammock with a book, or retreating to the cool of the TV room to watch a movie. After enjoying our first delicious lunch so much, mealtimes became something to look forward to. The chef applied every one of his 15 years of resort and cruise ship experience to cook up a storm and with everything from local specialties to Italian and fusion food on the suggestion menu, it was as if Seminyak's best chefs had all been invited to make a guest appearance. Despite the slick, minimalist design we found Villa Kavya easily met our practical needs and families would certainly enjoy all the facilities on offer, as would a group of young hip urbanites on a party weekend. The wide, central lawn is large enough to throw a frisbee, have a picnic on or even pitch awnings for a garden party and when it rained briefly the aroma of cut grass evoked memories of bygone summers. The three on-site staff were discreet yet available, which left us free to choose our favourite places and diversions during the day, coming together at mealtimes around the square dining table. After dinner, appetites appeased, the TV addicts slipped off to the TV room, the rest of us happy to recline, chat and enjoy the balmy Balinese evening.

Villa Mata Air

Villa Mata Air

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Mata Air occupies an incredibly peaceful and picturesque spot, where the only sounds come from birdsong and flowing water.  There are plenty of spaces for quiet contemplation, like the riverside deck, cushion-filled bale, and hidden temple gardens. The design is attractive, contemporary and comfortable, but it’s really the enchanted setting that seals the deal at Mata Air.  I am hardly a tree buff, but found myself deeply enamoured with the lush, leafy giants wrapped in webs of ropey vines that perfectly framed the pool and created the most tropical of vistas.  The neat design of pavilions and manicured lawns contrast well with the wilder riverside aspects, where untamed foliage creates a ‘back to nature’ setting.  The riverside studio pavilion is a fabulous addition; as a bedroom it makes for a private romantic hide away, alternatively, as an additional lounge area, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the views and the sounds of the gurgling river.  The complimentary driver was great when we were in the mood for a change of pace, even if it was just a meal down at Echo Beach.
