About Bendega Rato

A luxury retreat in Canggu, Bendega Rato imbibes a modern-Balinese style, offering four lavish bedrooms serviced by superb staff. 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 pond into your personal haven. A vaulted open-plan living and dining area looks out onto a lush tropical garden and an enticing 18-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 sun deck and rooftop balé provide panoramic views of Bali’s legendary sunsets.

The villa offers three master bedrooms each with large ensuites, while a private master suite with its own plunge pool, sun deck and garden balé can be added as an optional fourth room. The villa can be rented as a four or three-bedroom holiday home, with the option of combining it with five-bedroom Bendega Nui for larger groups.

The nearest beach is just a five-minute walk away, and Echo Beach, dotted with laid-back restaurants and world-class surfing breaks, 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 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.
