The enchanting, traditionally designed, Villa Belong Dua offers guests comfort, space and privacy in the beautiful Bali countryside.

Teak furnishings, Indonesian antiques and captivating portraits adorn the interiors of this charming and luxuriously spacious two-bedroomed villa, while a mature tropical garden, an alang-alang thatched poolside bale (perfect spot for sunset sundowners) and a generous 20-metre pool grace the grounds.

Belong Dua authentically replicates time-honoured Balinese family compound structure in its design, with every pavilion and every space carefully positioned. But high-tech entertainment amenities have not been sacrificed and each room features an LCD satellite TV and DVD player, high-speed WiFi and iPod dock. A team of friendly and professional staff is on hand to tend to your holiday needs and a skilled chef prepares gourmet meals from the villa's reasonably priced menu of Balinese and Western favourites. 

Villa Belong Dua, in the peaceful seaside village of Seseh, makes a perfect destination for those who want to immerse themselves in traditional Balinese life: a nearby path offers walks to the river, rice fields, temple and beach. But for those who wish to party, people watching or shop, the beach bars, cafes, spas and restaurants of Canggu and Seminyak are all less than half an hour's drive away.

This idyllic villa really does offer the best of both worlds. Care to join?
