Canggu Homestay: an Urban Farmhouse

Drawing inspiration from a childhood in Portugal, internationally renowned chef Will Meyrick has brought the rural elegance of an urban farm to Bali. Reminiscent of the homes of his youth, large, airy rooms, spacious verandahs and shared indoor and outdoor spaces, including a swimming pool, are ideal settings for long lunches or simply to relax and enjoy peaceful solitude. Manicured grounds lead to vegetable gardens bursting with fresh produce, and stalls for the kitchen pigs, foraging for compost. The Balinese chickens enjoy life in a bamboo ‘palace’, providing the Villa with fresh eggs and great fertilizer.
As the owner and chef of some of Bali’s best and most authentic restaurants, Will Meyrick is a well-known name across the country and one of the most respected maestros of the South East Asian food scene. Will continues to explore the culinary landscape of Asia, taking inspiration from the unique food culture of each destination. He can be found at street stalls, in neighborhood kitchens and backyards, at markets, getting off the beaten track to get to the heart of the dishes that move and shake him, tracking down the original recipes that are handed down through generations.

Dining Options

Good food, effortlessly provided and gracefully served, is a vital part of a relaxing holiday experience. Such is the reputation of the kitchen team at the Homestay that many guests choose to dine exclusively ‘at home’ even though amazing restaurants are only 10 minutes away.
Breakfast is a feast in itself, with a choice of continental, American or Indonesian dishes to start your day; and for lunch and dinner there’s an extensive menu of delicious home-style Indonesian, Asian and international cuisines. There’s an excellent selection of snacks, vegetarian options and children’s favourites, and the chefs can tailor dishes to accommodate any special dietary requirements, or prepare meals for up to 40 guests should you wish to host a memorable dinner party whilst in residence.

Groceries and beverages are charged at cost, with guests requested to provide grocery money in advance. The staff will then do the shopping, keeping the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is advised to plan meals the evening before.
