Simply the best

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.

An oasis for pampering

We came to Bendega Rato for a two-week holiday to spend quality time with our family, which is spread across four countries on three continents. The villa couldn't have provided a better venue for our reunion and is an oasis to enjoy a high degree of privacy, while having access to every amenity of a five-star lifestyle. There are 16 staff, including two chefs, butlers, security, gardeners and management. If you want pampering, this is a great place for it. With most of our group being passionate foodies (to the degree of almost obsessed), this was a particular area of scrutiny and focus for us. We were positively surprised, with the chefs recommending local dishes and delivered a consistent run of outstanding food. Even for the few fussier eaters (at least in terms of tolerance to hot local chili peppers) among us (and the 11-month old baby), there was a wide range of options to enjoy restaurant quality food multiple times per day. In terms of villa amenities, there is all you can wish for, with 950sqm of housing that embeds three massive, luxurious bedrooms, an air conditioned library (well stocked with interesting reading) and TV room, a large living area that contains a large kitchen, dining area and sitting area (with a large Javan couch for max relaxation). It must also be mentioned that the interior design and art work are simply exquisite. Outside is a large pool (I'm guessing 25 meters and nice for laps and enjoyment). There is a well equipped pavilion by the pool, where we celebrated a birthday party, and it contains a large dining table, a small kitchen and fridge (for the essential poolside refreshments) and a large couch to snooze on for the afternoon siesta. There are also multiple sun beds and umbrellas by the pool for max relaxation during the hot days. When it comes to staff, we fell in love with the crew at the villa. These are the friendliest bunch of staff you can imagine and were also great with our little baby. He played peekaboo all day with all of them and had a blast. Credits to the chefs for looking out for him too and made local dishes without the hottest chilies and salt. Also, when an air conditioning unit faulted in one of our bedrooms, the staff organized for another room in the neighboring larger (and very impressive) Villa Nui for the night while the unit was fixed. As a gesture of apology for the inconvenience, we received a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand). 10 points for attentiveness and service! Most of the staff are right up there with what you would encounter at typical five star hotels (polite, attentive and effective), although we felt a much stronger personal connection given how long we stayed at the villa and got to know the staff. One thing worth mentioning is that there are trainees that are still learning the ropes and might not have the same English language competencies as the lead staff (this might result in the odd coffee order going missing in translation, but nothing too problematic). As indicated above, the villa was amazing for our purpose (i.e. a family reunion where we could enjoy all day within the villa compound). The only thing that might not be ideal for everyone is the distance to Bali's stunning swimming beaches. The local beach is a surf beach that is filled with dark sand and large waves (and full of rubbish after a big storm). The closest proper swimming beach where you can check into a beach club or be a day guest at a nice hotel is the Seminyak beach (W Hotel is there). A bit further away is Kuta beach. However, if you want a pristine beach for swimming then the resort area of Nusa Dua is the pick of the bunch. The Nusa Dua resort area has a stunning beach that is great for swimming and is scattered with 5-star resorts. It is however a gated community and not a reflection of the real Bali (and is also the most expensive area on the island with a menu to suit western palates wanting to eat food from home). We checked in as day guests at the Grand Hyatt (didn't do much research on the hotels and was underwhelmed but it's a large resort with a great toddler pool and great private beach access). Overall, I would highly recommend Bendega Villa (either Rato or Nui or both) for anyone considering a high-end, relaxing holiday for a group (friends or family) and it is an amazing party venue. It is a place where you don't have to worry about anything and you can just go about relaxing and enjoying your holiday.

Beautiful Modern Villa in Canguu

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. :)

A little piece of heaven....

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! Happy trails..

Villa Bendega Rato borders a small fishing village in the district of Canggu in south-west of Bali. Surrounded by terraced rice fields, the residence is just a few minutes' walk from the beach. Despite the idyllic rural settings, the villa is just about 20 minutes’ drive from the fine dining restaurants, chic stores, and happening bars of Seminyak. Bali's cultural centre of Ubud is an hour away while the international airport is about 30 minutes from the villa.
