Dea Villas offers four glorious residences moments from Berawa Beach north-west of Seminyak.  Each has its own character and style, from heritage-chic to ultra-contemporary, and each occupies multiple pavilions set in private gardens with swimming pool, lotus ponds, sun deck and bale.  Shared facilities include 29 staff, a gym, spa and children’s playground, and guests enjoy complimentary welcome drink and fresh fruit basket upon arrival.  The villas – two 4-bedroom, one 3-bedroom and a one-bedroom – can be rented separately or together in different configurations – perfect for everyone from a honeymooner couple to two families in adjoining villas to a 30+ wedding party.

About Canggu

Canggu has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan and Babakan), which, until very recently, could still be described as a sleepy coastal locale. It's now one of Bali's coolest districts.

Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of eclectic restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars – especially along Jalan Batu Bolong, which runs right down to the beach. Popular spots include Finns Beach Club, Old Mans, La Laguna, The Lawn and Ji @ Bale Sutra.

Canggu is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find further south in Kuta and Seminyak. Swimming isn’t advisable however as the rips can be dangerous, but there are plenty of other things to do from horseback riding to cooking classes. Finns Recreation Club (for which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership) offers social and leisure amenities, including Splash waterpark, Bounce trampoline centre, Strike bowling, a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.

Along the coast to the north of Canggu is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.

About Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

There have been a few changes since we stayed at Villa Radha two and a half years ago, with the addition of two new villas to the enclave, a children’s playground, a gym and a spa. Staying at Villa Radha now means you have the choice of two spas on your doorstep. We decided, however, that we preferred the bygone era ambiance of the totally private wooden spa building within Villa Radha’s magical garden. Like the villa itself, the spa is another antique building so it is more in keeping with the overall character and charm. We noticed that with a total of five villas on the estate there is a now a little bit of hustle and bustle (and dare we say modernity) outside of Radha’s garden walls, but tucked away in our own private paradise – the gardens have grown and are even more beautiful than we remembered – we were able to completely relax and enjoy the wonderful service of the staff, and the great food. If you’re into sleek contemporary design the ethnic, rustic style of Villa Radha may not to be to your taste, but it is nevertheless immaculate and very comfortable, with all the trappings of the 21st century. There is no sitting room as such, but we enjoyed relaxing on the veranda, and were also very comfortable watching TV and movies in the air conditioned bedroom. As for the garden, well this is a landscaping triumph: forget any ideas of a modern Zen-like space, this garden will bewitch you with its tropical abundance of giant taro leaves, spiky pandanus, fan, parlour and travellers palms, bird’s nest ferns, heliconia, flowering frangipani, and rare fruit trees. It will make you wonder how it can be so full (almost to the point of being overgrown) and yet so meticulously maintained. At first we thought it was a little bit expensive for a one-bedroom villa, but when you consider the uniqueness of the property, the space, the facilities, the butler service, the pool, spa and gorgeous garden, you’ll probably agree that it’s extremely good value for money.

A beautiful villa set in an enchanting tropical garden. A perfect place to relax and feel the pressures of the outside world disappear as you take in your tranquil surroundings. The staff are wonderful and always keen to ensure your stay is a happy and memorable one. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone who seeks a little piece of paradise on the lovely island of Bali.

  Overall Rating: 9.10


This villa is an oasis and ideal for complete relaxation.The setting of a 200 year old Javanese house is completed by perfectly matching surroundings including most beautiful fishponds, a little stream through impressive vegetation and a really nice pool. The staff matched the setting in being always available and helpful, but never disturbing our peaceful time.

Awesome!! Everything is exceptional. The people, the ambiance, the value for money when it came to spa and food. Would def recommend it to friends and come back. Only request is that perhaps the Radha villa could have a more comfortable reading area and fan in the verandah attached to the villa.

I didn't want to stay in a standard villa as so many are in Bali, no soul, all the same, major complex, or so large it wasn't suitable for 1 person. This villa was perfect in every way. From the moment you drive into the driveway the staff are friendly, available but not intrusive. great sense of humour and happy to chat, as I was on my own, but also smart enough to know when to leave me alone. Incredibly helpful. The villa itself is hard to describe, the beautiful traditional Joglo is beautifully appointed, with the most amazing bathroom attached to the back. All the fittings, and decor is of the highest quality, obviously as the owner is an antique collector. The joglo itself is set in a large Koi pond, floating, with stepping stones and boardwalks taking you for a joyous adventure walking around the substantial garden for a 1 bedroom villa. Set on beautiful grounds of Koi ponds, trickling ponds, paths meandering between a little smaller Joglo used as a reading room, or for having dinners in, you can sit there and admire the stunning garden. Meandering further through the garden, over stepping stones in the pond, you are greeted by an oasis of a private swimming pool at the end of the most stunning garden, with beautiful flowers, butterflies and birds. It was a paradise to stay in for 4 days in every way. I cannot do this place justice. Even though there are villa's on either side, again they are tastefully done with meandering stepping stones over waterways, enchanted walkways between each villa, and a superb gym, all overlooking rice paddies. I was so content in this place I left for 2 small walks.. but simply did not want to leave.. there was no need.

Rooms

Bedroom: 1
Sleeping Capacity: 4
Location: Bali

The traditional high-peaked teakwood building is approached via a series of uneven natural stepping stones over a lily pond, where it presides over the garden like a floating pavilion.  Waterfalls tumble over boulders down to a little bridge, before seemingly flowing into the swimming pool.  Five wooden steps lead up to the elevated veranda of this gorgeous one-bedroom house.  Sheltered by the roof and offering a beautiful view of the garden, the veranda is furnished with a small table and two rattan planters’ chairs for alfresco dining, as well as a pair of armchairs and a coffee table.  The walls feature shuttered peepholes, while bell-jar lanterns hang from the roof casting a soft light in the evenings. 

The front door opens straight into the all-timber bedroom, which is stunningly furnished with a king-size bed, an antique cupboard, shag pile rug and a modern daybed, complemented by some fascinating antique artefacts.  The room is equipped with a 37-inch satellite-channel TV and DVD player (Nintendo Wii is also available), air conditioning, ceiling fan, and iPod speakers. Bevelled glass windows look out over the veranda and a soaring roof seems to extend upwards forever.

A door leads to a small kitchenette with a full-size fridge and two gas hobs for guests who want to do their own cooking. The rustic semi-open-air bathroom spills out into a private walled garden. Sheltered by a pergola roof and with the blessing of a non-slip floor, it is fitted with a hollowed-out river rock bathtub for two, a walk-in rain shower and twin washbasins. The enchanting garden is divided into several distinct areas, linked by a winding pathway.  The free-form swimming pool is located immediately next to the century-old (but air-conditioned) spa building, which is equipped with twin massage beds and characterised by wooden-shuttered windows.  The remainder of the garden – complete with gazebo and pondok for outdoor relaxation, as well as the sandy pétanque court and giant chess set – rolls down to merge with Villa Sarasvati next door.

Shared facilities at Dea Villas include: Dea Spa, with massage room, outdoor treatment area, sauna, jacuzzi and showers; a fully-equipped, air-conditioned gym, and a children’s playground with sandpit, Wendy house, swings and slides. Here, parents can relax on cushions within an antique balé while they watch over their kids.
