Canggu Boutique Villas & Spa ↠ Canggu, Bali

Out of the four hotels we stayed at during our time in Bali earlier this year, the Canggu Boutique Villas and Spa was without a doubt the best one.

This was our final accomodation for the trip and definitely ended the trip on a high, the only thing that would have made it better was if we had the chance to stay here longer.

As Canggu was our last stop following our time on Gili T, the boat that transported us between the Gili Islands and mainland Bali had transfer busses organised for when we returned to mainland Bali, however we had organised our own transport. A driver that Jordan had used on his previous visits to Bali, who I would highly recommend using if you ever need to get from A to B any where in Bali as he is reasonably priced and has a sweet ride {contact him via his FB page}.

The Canggu Villas was another amazing find on Seminyak.com.au {read more about my experience with this website here}. It was the most expensive of the four places we stayed at AU$204 for two nights and two people, but honestly I didn’t mind paying extra given how great the place was.

The facility consists of nine villas ranging between one, two and three bedrooms. Obviously being only two people, we opted for the one bedroom villa – the six one-bedroom villas must have been full as we were given the three bedroom (they just locked the doors to the other two rooms). Our villa was essentially designed to fit six people, so there was plenty of space to lounge around and utilise.

The villa facilities included; a ridiculously large air conditioned bedroom with an ensuite and balcony; fully equipped kitchen; lounge room; and private plunge pool.

Sitting by the pool, soaking up the final Balinese sun rays was the ultimate working environment. Or lounging on one of the sun chairs while reading a book ready to cool off with a dive into the private pool. Honestly, I could not have asked for a better way to end our trip.

The entire villa would be perfect for families or large groups of friends, and I can’t wait to come back and stay in this magical place again!

Canggu itself is relatively close to the Seminyak area – by taxi (about a 20-30 minute drive depending on traffic) not by foot mind you.

Having said that, Canggu is ultimately becoming the new ‘Seminyak’ anyway; it’s less crowded, has a low key chill vibe to it and there are plenty of nice foodie places to check out.

When it came to food, the villa included daily breakfast at their local restaurant, which provided the staples – eggs, pancakes, nasi or mi goreng, fresh fruit, nothing too fancy but just enough to hold us over until lunch time come around.

Some places worth popping your head into for lunch or dinner that are all within walking distance of the villas include:

Green Ginger Noodle House {I’ve always said that I could never turn vegetarian because I love meat too much, but this place is fully vegetarian and I honestly could eat every meal here it was that good, and I didn’t miss meat in any of the dishes one bit!}

Macan Cafe {specialties include carpaccio and all meat related meals pretty much raw, which was not to our standard so I think we may have offended them when we asked for our meals to be cooked a little bit longer because they were too red for us, on the other hand they do really good chips!}

Dim Sum House {really good dumplings}
