Bendaga Rato

4 Bedrooms | Beachside Haven | Canggu, Bali
From USD 740 / Night

Bendega Rato combines modern design elements with heritage pieces in a stunning 4-bedroom villa just minutes from the beach in Canggu. The name pays homage to its location, as bendega means ‘fisherman’ in Balinese (a nod to the peaceful fishing village it sits in) and rato means ‘sunset’ in Maori, which reflects the owners’ New Zealand roots and the gorgeous sunset views from the villa’s rooftop bale. This versatile villa can be rented as a three-bedroom holiday home with the option to add a fourth bedroom in a private walled garden with a plunge pool. Larger groups can also combine Bendega Rato with neighbouring Bendega Nui for a spectacular 9-bedroom space.


Situated amid rice paddies just a short stroll to a beautiful black sand beach, Bendega Rato is the ideal choice for travellers who want a peaceful abode that is still close to all the action in Canggu and Seminyak. The villa has plenty of space to spread out next to the 18-metre pool, on the rooftop terrace, in the air-conditioned media room, or in the open-sided living room with its soaring ceilings and plush sofas. The bedrooms are just as inviting with Indonesian antiques, artefacts and textiles and stately bathrooms with oversized bathtubs that overlook the rice fields. A dedicated team of villa staff add to the experience with warm and welcoming five-star service.

The spacious, open-sided pool pavilion also has antique bar, a large daybed, and plenty of bean bags for lounging. Afternoons are best spent next to the slate-grey pool on a sun lounger or catching rays on the rooftop terrace. Meanwhile, the breezy bale on the rooftop is the perfect spot for sundowner cocktails or a bit of stargazing.
