Ricefield View Villas in Bali
Villa Bendega Nui
Was designed in partnership with internationally renowned architect Glenn Parker to respect the style, proportion and symmetry of traditional Balinese architecture within a modern tropical design. The villa’s name reflects the owners’ love for Bali (Bendega means ‘fisherman’ in Balinese), and their native New Zealand (Nui means ‘grand’ in Maori).
Set in almost an acre of serene tropical gardens overlooking the rice fields, the villa is a short walk from the beach and a short drive to the chic restaurants and bars of Seminyak; close to the excitement of Bali but far enough away to ensure a traditional Balinese experience.
There are four large bedrooms at Bendega Nui, each with ensuite bathroom and a balcony positioned to capture the stunning views. A very private master suite with its own plunge pool, sun deck and garden balé can be added as an optional fifth room. A reading balé, gym and massage room with outdoor bath, a library with 50-inch plasma TV, a games room complete with pool table, and a sun deck hidden below the pool provide ample opportunities for relaxation. There’s also a stunning open sitting area that overlooks the rice fields, a separate air-conditioned dining room with a table that seats up to 20, a pool pavilion for outdoor dining and a large infinity-edge pool, both situated to catch the fabulous Bali sunsets.
The villa’s contemporary design is enhanced, outside and in, with the highest quality materials, all chosen for their natural beauty and durability. Thoughtfully chosen Balinese and Javanese sculptures, cabinets and artefacts – many of them antique – as well as bright floral fabrics and custom-printed traditional ikat textiles bring the stylish dark-wood furniture to vivid life. State-of-the-art facilities include a Sonos digital music system that can be programmed to match musical moods in several different ‘zones’, a modern kitchen, satellite television and DVD players and air conditioning in all the indoor areas.
The extensive gardens surrounding Bendega Nui are very special, and make an idyllic setting for a wedding or other special celebration. Lawns are dotted with frangipani, oil palms, jasmine, yuccas, African tulip trees and an abundance of tropical fruit, and feature several serene, koi-filled ponds.
Bendega Nui has been carefully designed to maximize its 3,900 square metres of land amidst the rice terraces of Canggu. The villa is entered via gates that slide open to reveal a two-metre-high black-stone Buddha head serenely welcoming visitors to the property. The entry courtyard provides ample room for parking and is dotted with frangipani, oil palms, jasmine, yuccas and African tulip trees. Guests walk over sandstone steps across a large koi-filled pond to the main entrance doors.
The villa’s buildings form an ‘H’ shape, with the main living and sleeping accommodation spread across the two-storey horizontal bar of the ‘H’, and one of the three master bedrooms, the pool pavilion, the gym and spa room, and the staff quarters forming the four ‘prongs’. This pleasing symmetry is carried through to many elements within the villa, including the 11 x 11-metre swimming pool that lies between the pool pavilion and the master bedroom pavilion.
Finally, a dedicated, discreet team of staff, including an excellent chef, is on hand to look after visitors with wide smiles and willing service, leaving you free to indulge in the special charm and beauty of Bali.
