This Bali vacation villa rental is located a few kilometres to the northwest of Canggu, a towering banyan – and one of the ‘elders’ of the tree kingdoms – heralds the turning to Seseh, a traditional beachside village approached via an avenue of coconut palms.
The village of Seseh still retains the customs and culture of old Bali with rice being planted and harvested in the fields, fishing boats returning in the morning with the night’s catch, as well as frequent, colourful processions to the large beachside temple.
Historically, the fishing village of Seseh was important in the 18th century when the temple was established as the major temple of the former Kingdom of Mengwi. At that time it was also a small trading port inhabited by a number of families of Chinese decent. Likewise there are records of Chinese-style
shop houses in Banjar Sogsogan during this period.
Today, this is an ideal destination for those who want to get lost in the beauty of the countryside and for those who want to engage with the local people and gain privileged insights into the Balinese Hindu lifestyle.
The famous surfing beaches of Canggu and Pererenan are within walking distance. The majority of the island’s shopping malls, theme parks and tourist attractions are also within reach.
This accommodation in Cemagi is a 1-hour drive from Bali's International Airport and a 30-minute drive to shops, world-class restaurants and the vibrant nightlife of Seminyak. It is also a 30-minute drive to the Nirwana Golf Course – one of the best golf courses in Asia and close to Tanah Lot, Bali's most dramatic and venerated sea temple.
