About the neighborhood
Villa Abadi is located on a small hill in the rural traditional Balinese village of Bengkel. The village has a few small local shops (where you can buy fresh eggs and basic provisions), rice and small hold farming and some cottage industries such as clay roof tile manufacturing. The villa is set back over 100m from the road accessible via a private driveway and is surrounded by rice terraces on 3 sides. The rear of the villa is elevated above the surrounding rice terraces, affording spectacular views out over the terraces, river, jungle and mountains in the distance. At the front of the villa there is a pathway that follows a meandering irrigation channel into extensive rice terraces. As the villa is set back so far from the road there is no traffic (unfortunately increasingly rare for ac...
Getting around
Villa Abadi provides an excellent base from which to explore the much quieter western parts of the island, Batu Keru Bali's 2nd highest volcano which can be seen from the villa, inland towards Lake Bratan & the Strawberry Hills and the northern coast around Singaraja and beyond. We find that a private hire car with driver is by far the best way to get around the island and are able to provide very flexible car hire for your stay on request. We are proud to support the local community and make no commission & add no mark up what so ever to the rates we offer, which are the same rates that we pay ourselves.
