Preside grandly over the luxuriant rice terraces of Canggu, only minutes from a fabulous surf beach and an eclectic choice of restaurants, cafés, and local warungs. With five generous bedroom suites spread between a series of pavilions set in tropical gardens of almost an acre, Villa Bendega Nui is a stunning villa for holidaying families and groups of friends who will appreciate the abundant indoor and outdoor spaces and the many entertainment options.
consulted acclaimed international architect Glenn Parker on the villa’s design, a modern take on traditional Balinese architecture, and spells luxury in every detail. Indonesian hardwood floors, Indian sandstone, and Italian travertine provide the canvas for stunning antiques, artifacts, and textiles across the archipelago, such as the glass-topped canoe serving as a statement buffet table that references the villa’s name (‘bendega’ means fisherman in Balinese). Everything is sized for sociability and comfort, from the huge sofas in the living room and the dining table seats 20 to the alfresco river-rock bathtub adjoining the fifth bedroom where two can soak with room spare. The proportions of the double-height living room find a match in the generously sized bedroom suites – all with supremely comfortable beds, unique color-coordinated decor, and rice-field or private garden views.
Villa Bendega Nui’s extensive facilities offer plenty to keep guests as busy as they wish to be. In addition to the large swimming pool, there’s a games room with a pool table and a library with a 50-inch TV. With an exceptional chef among the polished 17-strong staff (shared with Villa Bendega Rato) and an extensive suggestion menu to choose from, dining in is an enticing option despite the many excellent restaurants within walking distance. If additional space is required, two more guests can be accommodated in considerable luxury in an optional master suite linked to Villa Bendega Nui via a garden gateway and have its own private plunge pool and bale. For even larger groups, the neighboring three-bedroom Villa Bendega Rato can be added, too, giving a total of nine bedrooms.

Bedrooms at Villa Bendega Nui
Four of the bedrooms at Bendega Nui have lovely open views across the luxuriant rice fields of Canggu. In contrast, the large private fifth bedroom has sliding doors opening onto a private garden area. The villa can accommodate 10 adults in three king-bedded rooms and two twin rooms (which can convert to king-bedded rooms). There is the capacity to add three more foldaway beds for children if required. A privately enclosed one-bedroom suite between Bendega Nui and neighboring Bendega Rato creates an optional sixth bedroom. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, generously sized, tastefully furnished, and have ensuite bathrooms.
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. A sunken double bathtub is at one end of the vast ensuite bathroom, 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 a 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 the rear of the villa. Adjoining the bedroom is a study equipped with a laptop computer and printer for guest use.
Greenroom (upstairs master)
The Greenroom, 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 colorful 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)
Villa 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 washbasins.
Black & White room (downstairs twin)
Tucked away in a peaceful corner of the gardens is the Black & White bedroom pavilion, with its own sitting area, twin beds that can be effortlessly converted to a king, and three sets of sliding glass doors open onto the gardens. The pièce de resistance here is the huge river-rock tub, which appears to float at the center of a fishpond in the decadent indoor/outdoor ensuite bathroom.
Optional one-bedroom suite (with private plunge pool)
Set in an intimate walled garden, this private suite is accessed through a traditional Balinese gate from the main villa. It comes complete with its own 6 x 3-meter plunge pool, sun deck, and pool balé. The outdoor bathroom has a decadent stone soaking tub for two and a shower. Inside, the four-poster king-size bed sits beneath a traditional thatched roof. The room has an iPod dock, television, DVD player, and minibar.
Living Spaces at Villa Bendega Nui
Two sets of tall sliding doors open to reveal a spectacular open-air, double-height sitting room facing the gardens, pool, and rice fields. This fan-cooled space, which seats 12, is stylishly furnished with two oversized black teak sofas and armchairs set around matching coffee tables. The black upholstery is brought to life with vibrant contrasting green and orange patterned scatter cushions.
Along the back wall of the sitting room, an ancient canoe has been topped with glass and transformed into a 6m-long table, a stunning centerpiece for a buffet dinner. Above the canoe, a set of antique carved panels are framed against a wall of golden sandstone. A galleried walkway runs above the sitting area providing another opportunity to enjoy the views.
Dining and kitchen
To the right of the sitting room, glass doors lead into the wooden-floored dining room, showcasing a massive, five-meter-long solid Merbau dining table that seats up to 20 people. More glass doors open onto the garden at the front, while a large mirror is set in an antique door frame at the far end of the room. A charming glass-fronted cabinet houses glassware and crockery next to a door leading through to the kitchen.
The kitchen at Villa Bendega Nui reflects the owners’ love of cooking. This fully fitted, air-conditioned room has such appeal that it’s almost tempting to give the chef a day off! Dark wood cabinets, cream-colored Corian worktops, and glass splash-backs create clean lines, while a large central island ensures plenty of workspaces.
The chef’s biggest delight is the range of equipment available to him here – including an extra-large oven, a Jura Impressa coffee machine, waffle-maker, Cuisinart panini toaster, ice cream maker, and dishwasher, to name but a few. The kitchen also has two large fridges and a freezer and wine fridge in the pantry. Just outside is a custom-built pizza oven.
Library and games room
In the comfortable library and adjoining games room, a set of floor-to-ceiling shelves contains numerous books on Bali and Indonesia and more popular holiday reading. The library has a 50-inch flat-screen television with a DVD player and more than 50 international satellite channels. An L-shaped sofa and two floral print chairs offer plenty of comfort in front of the TV.
The games room is almost surrounded by glass and opened up to the gardens on three sides. Bar stools and easy chairs provide seating for spectators around the full-sized pool table, and there’s a wide selection of other games available too. Opposite the games room is a delightful guest washroom. This washroom opens into a pretty walled garden, finished in warm Indian Sandstone and furnished with an antique cabinet.
The 11 x 11-meter stone-tiled infinity-edged swimming pool overlooks the rice fields. As well as being large enough for some serious swimming, the pool is perfectly positioned for sunset cocktails, which you can enjoy from the wide stone shelves set into the pool at just the right depth. A breezy open-sided pavilion next to the pool is furnished with a huge built-in daybed and a table for 10 people. This is a great place to congregate for a’ come-as-you-please’ breakfast at the start of the day. A handy kitchenette with a water cooler, bar fridge, and sink is concealed neatly behind louvered doors, and around the corner is a guest changing room with a toilet and shower. To the far side of the lawn, perched over a koi pond, is a peaceful relaxation balé. Furnished with a comfortable daybed, floor cushions, and two petrified-wood stools.
Weddings and celebrations
Bendega Villas is one of Bali’s most sought-after private event venues, offering an idyllic and stylish setting and impeccable personalized service.
Weddings for up to 100 guests (or 70 seated guests) can be held at Bendega Villas when both Nui and Rato are rented together. In this instance, a popular choice is to hold the ceremony poolside at Bendega Rato and a reception on the wide lawns of Bendega Nui, overlooking the ricefields. When both villas are rented together with the one-bedroom suite, they can accommodate a total of 18 adult guests and six children in nine bedrooms.
The villa staff team can cater to parties of up to 25 guests. For larger numbers, we can recommend expert event organizers, florists, decorators, and caterers to focus on relaxing and celebrating with your guests.
