We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Desi, Pande, Ketut and all the staff were fantastic. This villa has got it all. We felt like we were completely at home, and we're sad to leave. In fact we barely left the villa. Some difficulty in arriving with our previous hotel driver getting a bit lost and it took almost two hours on a crazily bumpy road, but the villa driver was amazing and there was a much much easier way to get in and out. Food was excellent, and Ketut even gave us a cooking lesson one day. We miss his satay, prawn and glass noodle salad, and peanut sauce, but he kindly shared his recipes with us and we will enjoy the memories when we cook them at home and try to replicate his dishes. All the villa staff were amazing, and friendly, and were always on hand to get anything you need, without ever feeling intruded upon. We lived poolside and with daily spa treatments from the visiting day spa ladies, we were in pure relaxation heaven. Thanks so much for a wonderful two weeks in paradise. Some minor maintenance issues with air conditioning remote controls in the main house not working so well, and the floorboards in the master suite and main house were in need of some repairs, the dining room setting was overdue for an upgrade, with the upholstery on its last legs. But with some maintenance work, this place will not disappoint. The tranquility was wonderful, and so nice to be away from the crowds of Seminyak, and even Ubud these days. I definitely recommend this villa. We had children for the first week, and the stairs can be a bit of an issue with younger children, or people with mobility problems. But the staff are lovely and always helping out to entertain the little ones. Our Second week was a group of friends, and we had an equally lovely time. If you want to totally relax in a beautiful location, with separate private suites for everybody, with nobody else about, I highly recommend this villa. Thanks Arsana.
