With Canggu in easy reach, you never have to go far to find a delicious meal.

The chef is skilled in Western, Indonesian and vegetarian dishes and can take on any special diets and needs you might have.

The best bits

First off, you’ll love the beds. The beds are so comfortable – this is one of the villas where we’ve slept the best. So, if you’re looking to catch up on some lost sleep, this is the place to get it.

You’ll love the rustic charm of Villa Manggala. The living and dining areas are tucked in a traditional Joglo pavilion with high ceilings supported by four hand-carved wooden pillars. The villa feels open and free, with full-length glass doors that slide open to the garden, creating a lofty open-air living space, and you can soak up the tropical lifestyle with the pool just steps away from the sofa.

Kids will adore the Lima San wooden house. This room, which can be used as a massage sala, is the ultimate treehouse, fulfilling their The Jungle Book fantasies.
