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 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.

The Lotus Residence

The Lotus Residence

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

When holidaying at The Lotus Residence, you just won’t want to leave the premises. We didn’t. We didn’t need to!  Everything you could possibly need for relaxation and fun are right here; swimming pools, jacuzzi, plunge pool, a yoga/pilates studio, a choice of sitting, dining and chilling spots, a fascinating working rice field within the grounds, a gorgeous spa at the bottom of the garden, and space – lots of it.

The spa was our second port of call after a dip in the swimming pool, and we spent a delightful couple of hours there having a massage, a sauna and a rain-rinsed soak in the jacuzzi. There’s an icy plunge pool for the adventurous (or foolhardy, which, according to one of us, worked in perfect tandem with the sauna. The other one of us disagreed!

And while the kitchen might not grace the pages of Vogue Interiors (it’s built for staff use but contains every appliance and condiment you could need), we’re sure that if Gordon Ramsey turned up he’d clap his hands and say, “We can work with this. Let’s get cracking.” The meals produced here – the villa operates a priced menu, but special requests are catered for – is stupendous!

If you should feel the urge to escape from this jungle paradise, there’s a fabulous golf course as well as some remote beaches within a 20-minute drive. The sea can be a bit treacherous, however - only for strong swimmers.

Villa Mayana

Villa Mayana

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Arriving at Villa Mayana with a small group of friends, we immediately felt both at home and spoilt in all the right ways. The design and layout is perfect for plenty of social hang-out time, while the open views of gardens, pool, rice fields and sky give a grand impression.

It was a treat to soak in the luxurious tubs in the downstairs ensuites, and while the upstairs bedroom lacks a tub, it does have its own furnished landing area overlooking the lounge, and is good spot for some private reading or surfing the net from your laptop (WiFi connection is not the strongest, so don’t expect to be doing much downloading). This upstairs bedroom would not be suitable for younger kids though, as neither the steps nor the landing area is safely railed.

Feeling so peacefully secluded and surrounded by nature, yet with such easy access to all that Bali has to offer thanks to a complimentary car and driver (guests do pay for petrol), we felt that Villa Mayana offers a well-rounded home away from home.

Pantai Lima - Villa Ambra

Pantai Lima - Villa Ambra

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Our personal favourite of the five Pantai Lima beachfront properties, Villa Ambra gave us everything we could have wanted. The views are nigh on 180 degrees from any of the balcony or poolside vantage points and privacy is guaranteed. We lazed beside the pool on our first day, waited on by a great team of staff and musing on the ebb and flow of the house design, which is both modern and traditional with lots of interesting touches ranging from antiques to funky furnishings, and a healthy dose of comfortable couches, beds and sun loungers.

Our stay couldn’t have been timed better: it coincided with a full moon which meant a very low tide and practically the whole of the local village coming down to have fun on the sand or swim in the lagoon. The energy was boundless and one of us – unable to resist the pleas to join in – got caught up in a game of beach football. Afterwards, the staff served us a barbeque dinner of fresh lobster, snapper and prawns, which they prepared in situ under the stars. This was followed by a quick post-prandial cocktail and a dip in the jacuzzi. A perfect evening ... but wait, there’s more! The Pantai Lima villas are renowned for their attention-to-cinema-viewing detail and Villa Ambra has a huge home theatre with a projector and a 5 x 3m screen. We finally fell asleep to the sound of the crashing waves and the falling rain.

The next morning the sky was clear, the sea was blue and the day was perfect again for an alfresco breakfast and a lazy day by the pool. You get the picture!

Pantai Lima - Villa Mary

Pantai Lima - Villa Mary

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Mary just keeps on giving, just when we thought there were enough facilities to keep guests going for a week or two, we found more. From the home cinema to the pool to the hot jacuzzi, to the tennis courts to the gym and the wide expanses of lawns for the kids to play tag, it just kept getting better. This is a villa that adults will love and kids will go mental over: there is a beach to comb and a river estuary to explore (Parental Guidance Recommended) and lots of fields to hunt for frogs and lizards.

The subterranean home ‘cinema’ is perfectly named. It is huge! There is nothing like seeing the open plains and dramatic wide angle shots of a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western to take you back in time. With a 5m screen and a couple of leather armchairs thrown in at the back for the folks who don’t do horizontal, this is a viewing experience that will really ‘make your day’. And just when you think it can’t get any better, the staff will microwave up a mean bowl of popcorn (make sure you pre-order).

The two upstairs bathrooms have large tubs set against picture windows that allow you to take in the views. After a blissful sleep, there was no better way to start the day than with an early morning soak in the claw foot bathtub. Lying there in the warm water with the dawn light reflecting through the rice fields against a backdrop of volcanoes, we decided that this was how every day should start! Checking out of Villa Mary really hurt.

Thanks to the in-house conference centre and all the other wonderful leisure activities, we feel that this is one of the very few villas in Bali that would be the perfect Executive Retreat. Rented as a whole, the five villas that make up Pantai Lima Estate have a total of 26 bedrooms.
