About Bendega Rato

At Bendega Rato, modern Bali style, the greys of Echo Beach, the blues and whites of the sea and sky, five-star comforts and superb staff combine to create a luxury retreat in a small fishing village in Canggu. The villa’s name reflects the owners’ love for Bali (Bendega means ‘fisherman’ in Balinese), and their native New Zealand (Rato means ‘sunset’ in Maori – a nod to the villa’s delightful sunset terrace).

Bendega Rato greets you through antique Javanese doors before you walk across a traditional Balinese pond. A vaulted open-plan living and dining area looks out onto the lush tropical garden and the 18 x 5-metre grey slate pool. A pool balé. with an antique bar and table seating ten, is the perfect place to unwind, while a media room, complete with state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, will keep you entertained. Upstairs, a sundeck and rooftop balé provide panoramic views of the legendary Bali sunsets.

The villa offers three master bedrooms each with large ensuite bathroom, while a very private master suite with its own plunge pool, sun deck and garden balé – can be added as an optional fourth room.

The nearest beach is just a five-minute walk away, and Echo Beach, with its laid back restaurants and world class surfing, just a few minutes further along the sands. The chic restaurants and bars of Petitenget and Seminyak are also easily accessible. You’ll be close to the excitement but far enough away to truly enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Bali.

Finally, whether you decide to stay at the villa or explore all that Bali has to offer, our team of friendly, experienced staff, including an excellent chef, will be on hand to look after you and your every need.
