Villa Maridadi is a beautiful five-bedroom home beachfront home nestled between rice fields and the ocean in the traditional village of Cemagi on Bali's south-west coast. With traditional alang-alang roofs, lush tropical gardens, 20m swimming pool, lavish living spaces and spectacular views this villa exudes beauty in every way. Just metres from the black sandy beaches and sea temple of Pura Gede Luhur Batungaus, the villa is designed with relaxation and comfort in mind. Perfect for families, the warm and friendly staff ensure guests feel right at home, with a car and driver available for exploring.
Nestled between rice fields and the Indian Ocean, Villa Maridadi is situated in the traditional village of Cemagi on Bali’s south-west coast. The black sandy shores and rocky outcrops are also home to the small sea temple of Pura Gede Luhur Batungaus.
Walk through the gate at the front of the garden and take a stroll along the beach, or cycle through the rice fields and experience the Balinese way of life; you are bound to witness a village ceremony or two as you explore.
Despite its rural setting, the villa is only 30 minutes’ drive from the many restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak. World famous Echo Beach is also within easy reach (10 minutes by car), where guests can enjoy the laidback surfer vibe, an ice-cold beer and some incredible sunsets. And just down the road from Echo Beach, Canggu’s Jalan Batu Bolong is lined with exciting new places to eat, drink and shop.
We travelled to Bali with 3 families (6 Adults & 7 Children). Villa Maridadi was Perfect from the minute we arrived. Yola was there to welcome us and show us around - she had even organised a massage for each of us on arrival!! Gusti was brilliant! He was at the Villa every day preparing our meals, cocktails, organising our program and menu for the next day, as well as answering any questions that we had. The pool and garden was perfect! The sound of the ocean just over the front fence was pretty special too. Villa Maridadi was beautifully clean and the grounds were kept spotless. The teenagers all enjoyed playing pool in the upstairs games room, and those that needed to watch the AFL Grand Final. There were many different areas to relax and unwind from our busy lives .... we certainly didn't feel as if we were on top of each other. Made (who drive the villa car) was very patient with us all. He took us here there and everywhere, battling the chaotic Bali traffic with out a hint of stress. After these outings, it was so lovely to get back to the tranquillity of the Villa. I would definitely recommend Villa Maridadi to anyone wanting a getaway in Bali. Perfect for groups like ours or for family celebrations.
This is the most beautiful place, away from the hustle and bustle. From the moment you enter you realise you are in a very special place - so beautifully appointed and well kept. An extremely relaxing place to be . The grounds are gorgeous, the villas are superb with lovely outdoor batthrooms, and the staff are just wonderful. So attentive to your every need! Gusti as the main chef cooked magnificent food, catering for the diverse needs of our group. It would be very hard to find better accommodation anywhere. It really is that good.
we stayed at Villa Maridadi for one week with our extended family. this was perfect for us as the accommodation was in separate huts, there were many areas that we could use, the pool was large and the food was excellent. I would certainly recommend it for large families. it is isolated, which suited us, but may not suit all groups, and some may say it is a bit tired, but that was fine for us.
This resort is truly paradise with staff that fall over themselves to make the stay as wonderful as it can possibly be. From the arrival through to departure, there is little of any relevance to fault. The property is stunning with views over the water and is exactly as it looks on the website.
Elite Havens did a wonderful job in preparation for our arrival. We have five individual groups all arriving and departing at different times to one another and it was all handled with aplomb. Airport pickups were excellent and friendly as well. Highly encourage people to take advantage of the VIP service at the airport which made the entry into Bali a dream - no queues at immigration or customs.
Be aware that the location of this villa is in a very quiet area with very little to do other than stay at the Villa. Having a car at the ready is critical and the car service from the Villa was excellent. It is about 30 minutes from Seminyak on a good drive and possibly up to 45/50 mins on a busy day.
In short, if you want somewhere to relax and do nothing, this is the place for you :).
Stayed in the villa for 6 blissful nights . The staff are amazing , Gusti the chef can cater for any taste from anywhere around the world , the food is delicious . The staff are so attentive and kind and keep the rooms perfectly clean and welcoming .
The main Bale is open to the sound of the sea and has the view of the local temple on the shore .
There is a Lumbung at the end of the garden which gives a birds eye view of the beautiful surroundings and great for toasting the amazing sunsets .
The garden is kept immaculately by the friendly gardeners .
The special things about Maridadi are the arty touches in choice of soft furnishings ,artifacts ,statues and how the building blends into nature .
A very beautiful place for families or a group of friends .
The villa, view, and staff was so amazing and beautiful we didn't want to leave. Our family of 9 including a 3 year old stayed 5 nights for our sister's 50th birthday. The expansive grounds and rooms were always kept pristine by the staff. They made sure our stay was pleasant and comfortable from the chef, to the attendants, to the grounds staff, to the driver and security. Chef Gusti created delicious dishes from Western to Asian fare. He ran the villa very efficiently including bringing in massage therapists as requested. Looking forward to a return visit.
This is a beautiful property that caters well for large groups. We were three families and we all had ample space. The aspect of the proerty over looking the sea is stunning and you get a beautiful breeze. The property is in excellent condition. We were well looked after by all of the staff. The food was amazing and they catered to our needs. The staff are so helpful and friendly. You cannot swim in the beach in front of the property and it is quite dirty in parts but that is true for most beaches in Bali. I would recommend this property.
A beautiful place, in a lush, luxurious environment. We were spoiled by our hosts and the delightful staff. It's away from the hustle of the Bali roads, yet close enough to get out and see the locals getting on with their lives. If you want to feel special, and leave relaxed with wonderful memories of Bali, this is the place to go!
We were blown away by this truly wonderful 2 weeks in this Villa The staff were the very best ,the Chef we wanted to bring him home and it is the best time that we have had.(we go away with all our family every other year)You must go to enjoy the same experience we had. Thank you Maridadi we will return
We had a wonderful week at Villa Maridadi. We had family members ranging from 2 to 80 and the villa suited all our needs. We celebrated Fathers Day and 3 birthdays and the staff were happy to provide us with fantastic food, birthday cakes and candles. The 2 years old was kept busy catching frogs, the parents were busy having massages and pedicures and the teenagers were happy playing, table tennis, snooker and riding motor bikes. (the driver Gday is a great table tennis player:-) We enjoyed watching the locals on the beach, enjoying each others company and most of all relax in a stunning villa with everything we needed. Couldn;t find a fault!!
We have been to Villa Maridadi with a group of friends at least once a year for the past 6 years. The "Wow!" feeling we all experienced on first seeing the Villa is still there every time we go back. The setting, the facilities, the staff, the food; they're all just great. A tremendous golf course only minutes away; and if you you want white water rafting or scuba diving or snorkling or just want to shop; they're only a short drive away.
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
