Five-star service and the ultimate in private luxury villa accommodation awaits at the sublime Villa Bendega Rato. Just a five-minute walk from the beach in Bali’s popular Canggu district, 3-bedroomed Villa Bendega Rato can be rented in conjunction with a romantic one- bedroom suite with its own plunge pool, creating a stunning retreat for family and friends and an unforgettable venue for weddings and special events.
Bendega Rato lies off a grassy lane among a scattering of other private villas and the luxuriant rice terraces that define the Balinese countryside. The sound of the waves can be heard from the villa’s immaculate, though modestly sized garden and a walk westwards along the beach (good for surfing and walking but currents make it unsuited for swimming) will bring you to a sea temple and the glorious museum-like Hotel Tugu. Down the road from the villa are some village homes and small grocery shops selling the basics, but for more sophisticated pleasures, guests can avail themselves of the villa’s car and driver and head into Seminyak.
I arrived with high expectations and leaving with those expectations well and truly exceeded. This is a very beautiful place; in fact so much so it was three days before we opened the front door to walk outside and around the village.
The staff are excellent; the service discreet and superb; the meals are great; the pool is refreshing and the villa is simply the best! The only downside is packing to leave Whilst the cost is high end the return on how you feel makes Bendega an investment in body and soul.
What a pleasure it was to stay at Bendega Rato. Firstly, everything was as presented and promised to us.
This is a stunning Villa and one that we were extremely happy with and sad to leave. The interior fittings and layout are outstanding and when needed, you can easily find a quiet space to chill out on your own. Its location is terrific and we easily rode our motorbikes to all parts of Canguu. The pool is HUGE and the outdoor bale was especially popular with my family. With the Sonos sound system under my control :) we spent many hours sun baking, drinking by the pool and playing cards late into the night.
We had been exploring heavily the local breakfast scene, which is also amazing, but twice we had breakfast at the Villa and it did not disappoint anyone.
The staff were well trained, highly efficient, incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. They helped us with any requests and were always on hand to make coffee, drinks or snacks. Nothing was too much trouble.
We had an outstanding time here and would definitely return and thank you to all involved at Bendega Rato.
P.S. The only issue we had were the Kiwi's in the main bedroom, they need to be replaced with a few Koala's. :)
Stayed here for 3 days before a wedding. I was fortunate to have the Sky room and had a beautiful room, bathroom and private chill out zone.
Downstairs we had a full library, dining area and lounge room. All the furniture was clean and very well maintained.
The swimming pool, outdoor eating area and pool lounges were all comfortable.
Now for the staff; I could not fault them; they were all hospitable and nothing was a problem for them. The prepared food was always well presented and made fresh.
If you have a close group of friends or 3 couples that love Bali, you will not want to miss the experience.
** for the surfers**
Echo Beach is just around the corner!
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
