Located on a picturesque stretch of coastline just south of Bali’s famous Tanah Lot temple, where rice terraces meet the sea, Maridadi conveys a sense of grandeur in the expansiveness of its grounds, whilst the living spaces and the five bedrooms retain an intimate calming charm. It’s easy to imagine – especially from the study adjoining the master suite and the upstairs snooker and TV lounge – that this villa, with its understated style, was intended by the owner to create a balance between work and family life. The buildings are designed in keeping with Bali style: local stone and hardwood-clad exteriors, polished wo...od and terrazzo floors, thatched roofs, outdoor bathrooms and comfortable covered terraces. These are all enhanced with an impressive collection of carefully chosen artwork, sculpture and furniture tastefully displayed throughout.
The lawn boasts a whopping 20 x 5m lap pool which is certainly big enough to wear out even the most energetic of children, who will also love the lumbung rice barn, a virtual tree house overlooking the gardens and ocean, guaranteed to provide hours of make-believe fun. Then there’s the tennis court, mountain bikes, walks on the beach and the nearby golf course or, if it’s pampering you desire, ask for the menu of spa and massage treatments, arranged on request.
The staff of fourteen are wonderfully attentive and well versed at making your stay more than enjoyable. The villa menu is as extensive as the grounds and the resident chef has had training overseas; your taste buds will definitely not go unsatisfied here (meals charged to guest account at cost). For a true Bali experience ask Yoga, the villa manager, to arrange for a gamelan and dance troupe from the local village to come and entertain you. It’s the real deal, not a tourist troupe, and is welcome income for the village community.Read more
Mengening beach is on the edge of the sleepy village of the same name in the area of Desa Cemagi, characterised by some stunning views over rice terraces to Bali’s famous volcanoes and the ocean. There are no tourist restaurants or shops in the area although within fifteen to twenty minutes drive are the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali resort and golf course, the famous Tanah lot sea temple and Echo beach at Berawa where there are a number of restaurants and a few small shops. In the local village and on the beach you will often see colourful Balinese ceremonies.

We had a wonderful week at Villa Maridadi. We had family members ranging from 2 to 80 and the villa suited all our needs. We celebrated Fathers Day and 3 birthdays and the staff were happy to provide us with fantastic food, birthday cakes and candles. The 2 years old was kept busy catching frogs, the parents were busy having massages and pedicures and the teenagers were happy playing, table tennis, snooker and riding motor bikes. (the driver Gday is a great table tennis player:-) We enjoyed watching the locals on the beach, enjoying each others company and most of all relax in a stunning villa with everything we needed. Couldn;t find a fault!!

We have been to Villa Maridadi with a group of friends at least once a year for the past 6 years. The "Wow!" feeling we all experienced on first seeing the Villa is still there every time we go back. The setting, the facilities, the staff, the food; they're all just great. A tremendous golf course only minutes away; and if you you want white water rafting or scuba diving or snorkling or just want to shop; they're only a short drive away.
