  • Overview
  • Spot

Villa Belong Dua is an enchanting two-bedroom holiday villa in Bali, located in the heart of the tiny fishing and temple village of Seseh on the southwest coast. Resting on 1600 square metres of land in a beautiful walled garden complete with 20-metre swimming pool, the traditional architecture and artefacts celebrate the heritage of Bali, incorporating the symbolic elements of Balinese Hinduism. A series of five stand-alone pavilions are positioned in accordance with ancient cosmology, while the interiors are contemporary, stylish and romantic, incorporating both modern and antique furnishings as well as 21st century facilities. This includes WiFi internet access, LCD screen satellite channel TVs and DVD players, an iPod and three docking stations, imported kitchen equipment, and a genset to ensure that the villa always has electricity in case of power failures. There is also a secure covered car-park and a staff service area.

From the moment you enter Seseh village and cross the threshold of Villa Belong Dua, you will experience the warm hospitality, history and culture of Bali. The name of the villa is taken from a stone water vessel, dating back to a time when two of these containers could be found in every household, and were used every day to store water for drinking and washing. Two of these are showcased at the villa, along with an antique ‘jineng’, which is a traditional thatched Balinese rice barn and a symbol of social status, indicating that the family who owned it had a lot of land for rice culture. The jineng now serves as a place to relax or as a playhouse for kids. The villa’s imposing entrance gate is a copy of a Hindu temple gate at Angkor Wat in Cambodia and, after passing through this, you will cross a lily pond complete with a bubbling water feature and a Balinese guardian statue. Villa Belong Dua sits in a traditional street, which is well lit at night. A nearby pathway offers walks to the river and rice fields.

THE VILLA

Villa Belong comprises an open-sided living pavilion, an air-conditioned media room, and two bedrooms in separate stand-alone pavilions, named ‘Menaga’ and ‘Bangkat’, which are names that go back to the time when the village of Seseh was much bigger and administratively divided into three ‘banjars’ or local village councils.

Living & Dining and Kitchen

The living pavilion is located close to the main entrance, overlooking the garden and pool. Distinguished by a vaulted roof supported by eight wooden pillars, and open on three sides, it is furnished with a comfy, oversized daybed, and a low dining table sourced from a Javanese ‘warung’ (eatery), surrounded by floor cushions. A large mirror reflects the sunny garden, and the pavilion is beautifully lit at night. The semi-open-air dining room shares a pavilion with the kitchen, and the two rooms are linked via a service bar that can be closed for privacy. The dining room is furnished with an antique table, six chairs, and an antique wooden chest on wheels, known as a ‘gerobog’ originally used for storing rice. There is also an iPod and dock. The room is cooled by ceiling fans and natural breezes, and has the provision of electric blinds on the two open sides in case of rain or strong wind. A guest washroom is positioned to one side of the dining room.

Media Room

Behind the living pavilion is an air-conditioned media room, which doubles as an office. It is fitted with built-in desks and a sofa area equipped with a satellite-channel TV and DVD player.

Bedrooms

Two bedroom pavillons - Menaga and Bankgkat - feature each an open-air terrace at the front, lit by colonial-style bell-jar lanterns; the terrace is furnished with an antique daybed on wheels. The romantic air-conditioned bedroom is furnished with a king-size netted bed upon a wooden floor complete with a shagpile rug, under a soaring roof. The walls are cream with terracotta tiling behind the bed, and the room is equipped with a wall-mounted LCD screen satellite-channel TV and DVD player. Sliding doors can be opened for cross ventilation and there is the additional facility of a celling fan. The delightful, air-conditioned, en-suite bathroom is decorated in earthy tones and fitted with a sculptured terrazzo bathtub for two, and double washbasins upon a terrazzo vanity unit, which faces a window to ensure plenty of natural light. Glass doors can be opened for a semi-alfresco bathing experience, complete wth an outdoor rainshower set in a private walled courtyard with a pebbled floor and a serene Buddha statue. There is also a handheld shower in the bathtub, and a circular skylight that channels the moonshine. Off the bathroom is a charming, spacious dressing room, furnished with a wardrobe, chair and a dressing table that doubles as a desk.

OUTDOOR LIVING

The antique ‘bale gede’ is a traditional open-sided pavilion, which rests beside the swimming pool 20 x 4m). It hails from Bali’s royal Gianyar regency and was originally used for Balinese ceremonies such as the Potong Gigi (Tooth Filing Ceremony). Furnished with two timber built-in beds, some step stools taken from an old sugar cane press and a prayer table, it is a perfect spot for couples to enjoy a massage, or just chill out with a good book. It is constructed of twelve wooden pillars resting on paras stone plinths, which support a roof of radiating beam work crowned with alangalang thatch. The large garden at Villa Belong Dua is gorgeous, characterised by mature trees and open skies, with a dazzling 20 x 4 metre swimming pool as its central feature. The slate-lined pool is presided over by a Buddha head statue; it presents a separate shallow section for children and is bordered by a candi stone deck furnished with one double and two single Sunbrella sun beds. There is also the thoughtful provision of an outdoor pool shower. The fragrant landscaped garden has a velvety lawn, and is planted with coconut palms, frangipani, lemon and mango trees, pineapple plants, ginger and lemongrass. It is surrounded by a rustic wall crafted from crushed paras stone applied by hand and unpainted. A Balinese temple shrine sits in the northeast corner.

A few kilometres to the northwest of Canggu, a towering banyan—one of the ‘elders’ of the tree kingdom—heralds the turning to Seseh, a traditional beachside village approached via an avenue of coconut palms. The village of Seseh still retains the customs and culture of old Bali. Here, you will see the rice being planted and harvested in the fields, fishing boats returning in the morning with the night’s catch, as well as frequent, colourful processions to the large beachside temple. There are no international restaurants here, but you might just see a barong dancing on the street. A Barong is a high-spirited, benevolent beast representing the power of good; danced by two men inside an ornate costume. The good news, for folks who want to immerse themselves in the customs and culture of old Bali, is that the people of Seseh encourage and welcome congenial visitors. There are now a number of private rental villas in this area, which have seamlessly integrated without in any way detracting from the simplicity and charm of the two villages. Historically, the fishing village of Seseh was important in the 18th century when the temple was established as the major temple of the former Kingdom of Mengwi. At that time it was also a small trading port, inhabited by a number of families of Chinese decent. Likewise there are records of Chinesestyle shop houses in Banjar Sogsogan during this period. Today, this is an ideal destination for those who want to get lost in the beauty of the countryside, and for those who want to engage with the local people and gain privileged insights into the Balinese Hindu lifestyle.

Villa Belong Dua is one hour’s drive from Bali's International Airport and 30 minutes drive from the busy shops, world-class restaurants and vibrant nightlife of Seminyak. It is also 30 minutes drive from Nirwana Golf Course, one of the best golf courses in Asia; and close to Tanah Lot, Bali's most dramatic and venerated sea temple. The famous surfing beaches of Canggu and Pererenan are within walking distance. The majority of the island’s shopping malls, theme parks and tourist attractions are also within reach.

Things to do

  • Explore Canggu’s scenic rice field landscape and rural villages on the villa’s Vespa scooter; a great opportunity to interact with the local community, plus sample Balinese fare in simple warungs (localstyle restaurants).
  • If you’ve always dreamed of galloping along a beach or riding through villages bordered by rice fields, now’s your chance. Bali Horse Adventure, located few minutes from the villa, can arrange horse riding tours, as well as children’s riding lessons and horse-drawn carriage outings.
  • Sports enthusiasts should head to Bali’s prestigious Canggu Club, with its state-of-the-art gym and tennis and squash courts. Round off your work-outs with some fine international dining, then stock up on gourmet goodies at the nearby Deli.
  • Catch a wave, or several, at some of Bali’s best surfing beaches, all within easy access. Pererenan Beach is just a 300m stroll or motorbike ride away. Along this stretch of naturally beautiful beaches, Echo Beach, under ten minutes by car, is the most famed surfers haunt, but all are in prime position for Bali’s legendary sunsets.
  • On Canggu Beach, be sure to visit mystical Hotel Tugu Bali. Bali’s first museum-hotel is studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and its award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies. If you’re planning a honeymoon, this makes a wonderful first night venue before continuing on with your villa stay.
  • Make the de rigueur pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot (8km), one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets. Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is best savored at sunset; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu Priests.
  • Alternatively, view Tanah Lot from the 12th hole of Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Bordered by ocean and rice fields just down from the sea temple, no wonder this championship standard course (designed by golf legend, Greg Norman) is frequently voted number one in Asia.
  • Fashionistas, trendiest and shop-a-holics should hot-foot it down to Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave, Seminyak. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, global-inspired restaurants, chic boutiques and hipper-than-thou bars – including much hyped, Ku Dé Ta, on Seminyak beachfront. Drive westwards to explore the un-chartered West Bali region, where the charming Tabanan Regency reveals terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities – treasures that Bali is famed for.
