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 Asli

Villa Asli

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

This is such a stunning villa! We’re suckers for character, so we really did love everything about Villa Asli. Not only do the gorgeous timber joglos exude such delicious charm in all their aging, creaking, antique-filled glory (and provide a rare [for Bali] sense of history), but the gentle natures of the staff also put us superbly at ease. Asli means ‘genuine’ and everything in this villa – from the exquisite collection of antiques to the staff themselves were certainly positive reflectors of this title.  Dressed in their traditional uniform, the staff were always a warm and efficient presence around the house. The chef was most definitely a highlight of the team as he whipped up an excellent range of dishes based upon an extensive menu and also according to our own suggestions. All the meals we had were thoroughly enjoyed, and since all food and drink was charged at cost price (and daily breakfast is included in the rate), we thought it was surprisingly good value and hardly worth eating out, despite the lure of nearby Seminyak.    

We were spoiled by the high level of comfort and the spaciousness of our bedroom, but its terrace was our favourite place of all. We loved the bathrooms too – the Sumatran gladak had a particularly jungle-like bathtub setting, which was enhanced magically by long lanterns night. The lighting throughout the villa is definitely worth a mention as it set off the chocolatey timberwork a treat.

Villa Bangkuang

Villa Bangkuang

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We were impressed by the vast green space that Villa Bangkuang put at our disposal. As we entered through the gates from the driveway, the walls evaporated, offering us an unobstructed view over the rice fields to the ocean several hundred metres away. This is definitely a place to relax, far away from the sounds of the modern world. There is nothing pretentious about Villa Bangkuang, it has elegance, charm, a warm ambience and a gentle energy. It was built as a family home, designed by its owners and furnished with love. Bali is acknowledged throughout the villa with a number of fascinating antique artefacts, and everything blends together beautifully from the rusticity of the rice barn, balé bengong and kitchen to the elegance of the living pavilion and the contemporary stylishness of the guest pavilion. Seseh and Sogsogan are very traditional villages with a close-knit society that warmly welcomes tourists into the fold. All the staff at Villa Bangkuang hail from these villages and are more than willing to place their sweet natures and charm at your service. Check with them to see if there are any special ceremonies taking place during your visit and you may be able to experience true Balinese culture first hand. It was Galungan when we visited (a bit like our Christmas): the streets were lined with giant decorated bamboo penjor poles and we were able to see the men-folk out on the street preparing lawar from freshly-killed pigs, a Balinese delicacy and a traditional male undertaking; much like any Western BBQ!

Villa Bengawan

Villa Bengawan

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We liked Villa Bengawan straightaway. Its tranquillity and its relaxing open spaces edged by pretty lily ponds were very appealing. Each of the bedrooms is of a good and very similar size (great for groups) and all overlook the garden through floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. We particularly loved the semi-outdoor bathrooms where you can shower or bathe right beside your own lush walled garden sprouting giant ferns, aromatic frangipani and palms. Skylights above the washbasins are also very handy for flooding in the right amount of light for applying makeup!

The lily ponds fringing the living and dining areas were very photogenic, and we loved how the pink flowers arched open widely during the day but closed tightly up again each night. The squashy sofas in the lounge were particularly comfortable and the mood of the room seemed to vary according to what was playing on the iPod. Refreshingly, there are no TVs in any of the bedrooms. Instead, you can catch up on the news or watch a movie in the air-conditioned media room to the back of the lounge.

Tufts of feathery grass between the lawn and the swimming pool provide a pleasing screen of privacy for the sun beds on the timber decking. Although the staff were present in the kitchen and around the villa as they cleaned and cooked for us, they were very discreet and tended to pop up only when we needed something – a snack or a drink perhaps. Their English is fairly basic but they did understand what we needed and we didn’t have any problems. The cook is excellent and the villa menu (groceries on guest account) is substantial enough to keep you satisfied for days.

Villa Bungadesa I (5BR + 1)

Villa Bungadesa I (5BR + 1)

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

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.

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.

Villa Da Vinci

Villa Da Vinci

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With its inspired design and intelligent space planning, Villa Da Vinci is a fantastic holiday villa for two families who want to be together yet have their own space, or for a group of friends who want to keep Seminyak at arm’s length while being only a hop and skip away (15 minutes’ drive) for night-time forays. We were impressed that the two main floors each had a master and second bedroom as well as their own large air-conditioned living and dining area with well equipped kitchens. And there’s an outrageous amount of communal living space With five dining tables – yes, that’s five – the hardest decision is where to eat! The huge rooftop terrace is a fabulous place for sunset cocktails, a barbecue dinner or even a drinks party. And let’s not forget the poolside bale where you can sprawl on a super-sized scarlet mattress or sink into the party-size jacuzzi; it’s a pretty cool place post-sundown too, with lights that change colour and illuminate the night. In fact, it’s so well designed that we didn’t even notice the lack of garden (which is little more than a wide palm-filled border for the huge swimming pool). But with so many outdoor terraces to choose from, we didn’t miss it!

Villa Gabah

Villa Gabah

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

It's always nice to be one of the first guests at a brand new villa, particularly when you know you definitely won't be the last. Even though we could still smell the fresh paint and plaster on the walls, as soon as we slipped into the pool, Villa Gabah felt like a place we'd be happy to call a second home. Despite its impressive size, all the facilities are contained in a single building so we never felt far from anything we needed. The helpful staff were happy to bring cool drinks from the fridge upstairs while we were lounging by the pool, and staying in one of the poolside bedrooms meant we only needed to venture to the upper floor lounge for meals on the terrace or movies on the flat screen. Kids will love the pool and garden and can be easily supervised from the terrace. The stream that runs in front of the villa provides added fascination, not to mention a soothing natural soundtrack to your stay. If it wasn't for the surrounding views and wooden accessories, we felt we might forget this was Bali. But despite the villa's secluded location, if you hire the car and driver you're within easy reach of local cultural attractions and beaches. For those who don't feel like venturing out much, the option of a private chef (small daily fee plus provisioning) means you can make the most of what is a relaxed, self-contained and easy escape.

Villa Inti

Villa Inti

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Green is said to be soothing for the soul, and in the verdant surrounds of Villa Inti almost every shade is represented; luminous rice paddies, spindly palms, lush leaves and foliage all conspiring to induce absolute calmness. Gurgling water fountains add to the serenity of this villa which feels wonderfully worn in without a hint of being worn out. The owners have great taste, obviously favouring comfort over ostentation and we happily soaked up the sense of intimacy and warmth, feeling right at home from the minute we walked in.

The atmosphere is one of pure tropical languor, easily indulged while sinking into a sea of cushions, sprawling on a sofa or lounging in a poolside deck chair. Service is relaxed – more of the ‘ask for’ rather than ’anticipated’ style – which suited us, but may not be ideal for those who like to be waited on hand and foot. When we managed to tear our eyes away from the scenery, we worked our way through the plethora of books, magazines, CDs and games, lamenting the fact that we didn’t have time for everything. We were happy to switch off, but the fast internet connection, good mobile reception and fax machine are handy for those who need to stay in touch with the outside world, which – despite the rural setting – isn’t actually that far away.
