About Bendega Villas

Bendega Nui was designed in partnership with internationally renowned architect Glenn Parker to respect the style, proportion and symmetry of traditional Balinese architecture within a modern tropical design. The villa’s name reflects the owners’ love for Bali (Bendega means ‘fisherman’ in Balinese), and their native New Zealand (Nui means ‘grand’ in Maori).

Set in almost an acre of serene tropical gardens overlooking the rice fields, the villa is a short walk from the beach and a short drive to the chic restaurants and bars of Seminyak; close to the excitement of Bali but far enough away to ensure a traditional Balinese experience.

There are four large bedrooms at Bendega Nui, each with ensuite bathroom and a balcony positioned to capture the stunning views. A very private master suite with its own plunge pool, sun deck and garden balé can be added as an optional fifth room. A reading balé, gym and massage room with outdoor bath, a library with 50-inch plasma TV, a games room complete with pool table, and a sun deck hidden below the pool provide ample opportunities for relaxation. There’s also a stunning open sitting area that overlooks the rice fields, a separate air-conditioned dining room with a table that seats up to 20, a pool pavilion for outdoor dining and a large infinity-edge pool, both situated to catch the fabulous Bali sunsets.

The villa’s contemporary design is enhanced, outside and in, with the highest quality materials, all chosen for their natural beauty and durability. Thoughtfully chosen Balinese and Javanese sculptures, cabinets and artefacts – many of them antique – as well as bright floral fabrics and custom-printed traditional ikat textiles bring the stylish dark-wood furniture to vivid life. State-of-the-art facilities include a Sonos digital music system that can be programmed to match musical moods in several different ‘zones’, a modern kitchen, satellite television and DVD players and air conditioning in all the indoor areas.

The extensive gardens surrounding Bendega Nui are very special, and make an idyllic setting for a wedding or other special celebration. Lawns are dotted with frangipani, oil palms, jasmine, yuccas, African tulip trees and an abundance of tropical fruit, and feature several serene, koi-filled ponds.

Finally, a dedicated, discreet team of staff, including an excellent chef, is on hand to look after visitors with wide smiles and willing service, leaving you free to indulge in the special charm and beauty of Bali.

 

Villa Layout

Bendega Nui has been carefully designed to maximize its 3,900 square metres of land amidst the rice terraces of Canggu. The villa is entered via gates that slide open to reveal a two-metre-high black-stone Buddha head serenely welcoming visitors to the property. The entry courtyard provides ample room for parking and is dotted with frangipani, oil palms, jasmine, yuccas and African tulip trees. Guests walk over sandstone steps across a large koi-filled pond to the main entrance doors.

The villa’s buildings form an ‘H’ shape, with the main living and sleeping accommodation spread across the two-storey horizontal bar of the ‘H’, and one of the three master bedrooms, the pool pavilion, the gym and spa room, and the staff quarters forming the four ‘prongs’. This pleasing symmetry is carried through to many elements within the villa, including the 11 x 11-metre swimming pool that lies between the pool pavilion and the master bedroom pavilion.

Villa Bedrooms

Every bedroom at Bendega Nui has lovely open views across the greener-than-green rice fields of Canggu. The villa can accommodate eight people in three king-bedded rooms and a twin room (which can convert into a king-bedded room). There is capacity to add three more foldaway beds for children if required, and a stand-alone master suite creates an optional fifth bedroom. All bedrooms are air conditioned, generously sized, tastefully furnished, and have ensuite bathrooms and balconies.

Purple room (master pavilion)

Accessed by steppingstones across a garden pond, the first master bedroom is housed in its own pavilion at the front of the gardens and overlooking the rice fields. This room is private, peaceful and perfectly placed. A canopied, four-poster, king-size bed facing a private terrace is the focus of the room. Behind the bed is a large, walk-through dressing area. At one end of the vast ensuite bathroom is a sunken double bathtub, while, at the far end, is a spacious shower area. A door at the side of the bedroom leads out to the pool and gardens.

Orange room (upstairs master)

In this upper-floor bedroom, a centrally placed four-poster king-size bed looks out onto a private terrace with daybed that, in turn, overlooks the gardens, pool and rice fields. Behind the bed, a dressing area leads through to the large ensuite bathroom where a super-size bathtub looks over the gardens at rear of the villa. Adjoining the bedroom is a study equipped with a laptop computer and printer for guest use.

Green room (upstairs master)

The Green room, also furnished with a king-size four-poster bed, looks out over a ‘wall’ of sliding glass doors that open onto a balcony furnished with a colourful daybed shared with the twin room next door. The large bathroom is fitted with a shower area and bathtub with views of the ocean.

Turquoise room (upstairs twin)

Bendega Nui has been designed with families in mind and this twin-bedded room, with its cheerful turquoise accessories is ideal for children (the beds can be easily converted to a king size if preferred). This bedroom also features a 37-inch flat screen TV. The ensuite bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and double wash basins.

One bedroom pavilion (with private plunge pool)

Set in a private courtyard, this master suite is accessed through a traditional Balinese gate from the main villa. It comes complete with its own 6 x 3-metre plunge pool, sun deck and pool balé. The outdoor bathroom has a decadent stone soaking tub for two and shower. Inside, the four-poster king-size bed sits beneath a traditional thatched roof. The room is equipped with an iPod dock, television, DVD player and minibar.

Surrounded by terraced rice fields and only a few minutes’ walk from the beach and the extraordinarily romantic Hotel Tugu, Bendega Villas border a small fishing village in the district of Canggu, south-west Bali. Despite their rural setting the villas are only 20 minutes’ drive from the restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak, an hour from Bali’s cultural centre of Ubud, and 30 minutes from the international airport.
