Just a short drive from the airport, Canggu has recently become one of the must-visit hotspots of the South. Filled with trendy cafes, note-worthy restaurants, popular surf beaches and hectic parties, it has everything a young traveller could want!
I love Canggu for sunset cocktails and its amazing music scene. Some of the best bands on the island hold regular gigs around the bars and clubs. So, I have put together my list of the most beautiful and stylish villas with a private pool in Canggu. Whether you are planning a weekend getaway with your friends, or a long stay with your family, there is something for everyone! Take a look!
River Studio in Pererenan – A Tropical Paradise for Couples
This beautiful artistic space is my idea of a tropical haven. Located in one of the most rural and idyllic areas of Canggu, I can’t think of a better place to unwind. Featuring a refreshing private swimming pool and wooden decking you can luxuriate in the sun or hideaway in the shade, encompassed in nature. The lavish 1-bedroom sits at the top of the triangle villa, overlooking the gardens. You know where to find me, in one of the best villas in Canggu!
Echo Beach Villa – An Ideal Surfers Escape
Just a few minutes walk from the beach, if you are looking to spend long days surfing challenging waves then you can’t find a better spot! A comfortable 2-bedroom home with a large swimming pool, you will enjoy spending time around the villa as much as exploring the town. There is plenty of space to entertain your friends before a night out on Batu Bolong, and luscious tropical greenery keeping you cool and breezy on steamy island afternoons.
Zen Villa – Villa with a Modern Traditional Twist
I love the unique modern edge of this traditional Joglo home. Featuring authentic Javanese houses with expansive glass walls, the owner has cleverly kept the open concept with a luxurious twist. You can still look out over the lush gardens undisturbed, from the comfort of the air-conditioned living spaces – perfect! The villa’s 2 bedrooms are located in separate Joglos on either side of the living areas, this is ideal if you would like to escape your group for some serene time alone.
Double N – A Traditional Balinese Style Villa
If you are looking for Balinese luxury, look no further, Double N is the villa for you. Featuring sprawling tropical gardens and traditional open bale-style living areas and bedrooms, it is the perfect place to relax with your loved ones. A huge swimming pool stays sunny throughout the day where you can play and bask in the island heat. Just a short drive from the beach and famous Finn’s Beach Club, you have everything you need just moments away.
Villa Ruby – An Instagram-Worthy Home
Much like River Studio, this is my style.. Villa Ruby exudes the ultimate relaxing, island atmosphere with boho-chic decor and modern bright furnishings. I can picture myself lazing out in the sun around the swimming pool and gathering with my friends for delicious fresh Indonesian feasts. Filled with cosy seating nooks, you can hideaway from the sun and simply enjoy the art of doing nothing.. Excuse me while I just lay here for a second.. Bliss..
Villa SisSa – An Ultra-Modern Canggu Villa
Villa SisSa is one of the most modern and bright Canggu villas available. My favourite spot in the whole house is the rooftop terrace. Overlooking expansive rice paddy fields, you can enjoy luscious views during an afternoon of sunbathing, or evening meal with your loved ones. Ideal for catching a beautiful sunset, grab some snacks and a cocktail and relax as the sky turns magical shades of pink and orange until the sun retreats into the horizon.
River View Villa – Villa with a Jungle Treehouse Vibe
I feel relaxed just looking at River View Villa. Surrounded by luscious greenery with a bamboo terrace, the villa gives off a tropical treehouse vibe where you can relax among the jungles in the island sun. Filled with wooden furnishings and plush bedrooms, immerse yourself in nature and enjoy a serene getaway. River View Villa is a tranquil escape, yet is just a few minutes drive from the centre of Canggu with its popular restaurants and thriving nightlife. An ideal in-between!
Edgy Canggu Villa – A Scenic Modern Escape
Another scenic villa, this modern contemporary home looks out over luscious rice paddy views from its private swimming pool and open living areas. One of the best villas in Canggu to relax and spend a tranquil getaway with your loved ones, you can enjoy soaking up the sun and reclining on the sunbeds. Watch movies from the sunken couch, and catch amazing sunsets over the lush landscape. I would love to spend a relaxing weekend here with my besties, just chilling out.
Casa Adeline – A Trendy Bright Home
This villa is unlike any of the other private villas in Canggu I have seen. Tinted a beautiful pink hue to reflect the sun, the trendy home is filled with colourful tiled floors, ornate furnishings and features an in-built fence around the pool – great for those travelling with children! A unique take on traditional villa style, this is the place to stay if you are looking for something bright and quirky. Just a short drive from the bustling centre, it is the perfect getaway!
Villa Como – A Relaxing Retreat in Berawa
A luxurious and modern home, Villa Como is one of the Canggu private pool villas I would recommend to a group of young travellers looking for a stylish accommodation to base their adventures. Only a moment’s drive from Berawa Beach, and just across the famous Canggu shortcut from the buzzing nightlife, it is the perfect calm location to relax after a night at the bars. With a sunny private pool and luxurious bedrooms, you are ensured a comfortable stay.
Kawung Villa – Ultimate Island Home from Home
A towering tropical retreat, Kawung Villa oozes calm and relaxation. A beautiful light design, the villa is encompassed with lush greenery where you can escape the crowds and unwind. Each of the bedrooms are a plush, comfortable space enticing you in for a blissful night’s sleep. Spend long days soaking up the sun and lounging in the living areas. If I were staying here, I would never want to leave.. It is the ultimate island home from home.
What an amazing selection, if I do say so myself.. A real combination of chic, traditional and quirky villas.
Now, you have to make the decision of what is most important for you – is it location? Or style? Or amenities?
I love the boho-chic villas – River Studio and Villa Ruby, the easy-going decor and design helps me to feel at home and unwind. Plus, being in nature is always a bonus!
No matter which of these Canggu private pool villas you choose, you can wander the town to find your favourite brunch spot, lunch spot, and sunset spot.. Get ready to relax!
