Hidden Beach Villa is tucked away down a rustic lane beside the Canggu river just 100 meters from the beach and the Balinese fishing village at Canggu.

The villa looks out across the river at the bottom of the garden on to rice fields and the beach, which is a regular setting for traditional Balinese ceremonies.

Early in the morning, the small boat houses come alive as the local Balinese prepare their catch after a night of fishing on the reef. This is not a tourist attraction, it is part of their normal, everyday life, and if you are awake early enough, you can go down to the beach and barter for fresh lobsters, fish, crab, and other delicious seafood which can be prepared by our cooks just the way you like it.

Swimming Pool
