Villa Marton is located only 150 metres from Berawa Beach, and adjacent to the local temple, a small forest & rice paddy.

About Berawa / Canggu
Berawa Beach, a village in the larger region of Canggu is actually a small fishing village in a semi-rural location, which until very recently, could still be described as a sleepy coastal locale. It's now one of Bali's coolest districts, with its famous surfing beaches and bevy of bars and eateries.
Canggu – Bali’s trendiest up-and-coming destination is regarded as Bali’s newest hotspot. Canggu is home to a vibrant surf beach and happening local streets. The area’s stunning landscape is covered in a lush carpet of rice paddies dotted with some of Bali’s most stylish villas and luxury properties including Villa Marton.
Here, amongst the rice fields, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars. It is also an area that most surfers will be aware of, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find in Kuta further south. Nearby sporting facilities include the Finn’s Recreation Club offering social and leisure amenities, including a water park, state-of-the art gym, ten pin bowling, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis centre.
Sophisticated Seminyak, 4 kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, Sardine, Metis, Mamasan, Merah Putih, Da Maria, La Lucciola and Ku De Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.
Along the coast, 30 minutes to the north of Canggu is the Nirwana Bali Golf Club, designed by Greg Norman and is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. Next to this is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali.
The island of Bali is part of the Republic of Indonesia, the largest archipelago in the world with over 18,000 islands. It is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centered around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colorful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes millions of visitors each year to its relaxing lifestyle, warm water beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate.
Located approximately 2 hours flying time from Singapore, 3 hours from Perth, 6 hours from Sydney, the island is serviced by a major international airport at Denpasar (40 minutes to Villa Marton), with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkeling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Year after year, Bali is ranked as "The World's Best Island" destination by the readership of international travel magazines such as Travel & Leisure. The combination of friendly, hospitable people, the physical beauty of the island, a magnificently visual culture infused with spirituality, spectacular beaches with great surfing and diving, and the year-round pleasant climate all contribute to Bali's unparalleled designation as the world's best island.
SmartTravelAsia.com voted Bali its favorite Asian holiday destination by saying, "It's an island that has retained its disarmingly honest and simple charm, a peaceful ritual-minded Hindu enclave in a bustling Muslim country." In reviewing Bali's win SmartTravelAsia.com said: "Bali held top spot - and by a wide margin - demonstrating that integrity and authenticity can attract visitor votes, and dollars. This is a reassuring message in an age of instantly bottled and serially manufactured destinations where neon and crocodile shows push everything else off the stage."
