Most restorative stay in a long time!

Reviewed April 4, 2012

I just returned from 5 wonderful days at Villa Sin Sin. The check-in was very simple and when I walked into the villa, I was surprised at how large it was! The living room could easily have fitted 20 people comfortably for a party. It was open air which made it even better because we could feel the breeze and hear the birds outside. The 2 bedrooms were also large and each came with an ensuite bathroom. The air con was great very welcomed at night. The highlight of the house is the outdoor shower. With an awning, you shower under the birds and the stars which is a great experience. We ate in almost every meal for the first 2 days and the food was very good. It was simple in terms of the menu because we requested healthy meals but you can basically order anything you want and the wonderful Indonesian chef will make it for you. One of the best meals was the poached salmon with Asparagus with a side of cold soba noodles. They told us that all the herbs and salad was from a local organic farm which made my friends very happy. The lovely villa manager Komang also recommended we ask the masseuse to come to the house instead of us going to the spa. That way, it is easier for us to shower and get ready for our dinner after. I have to say the massage was very good but different from the usual spa experience you would get at a large hotel like the Como or the Aman. This was the type of massage you would get to really work the knots out so not for the lighthearted. We bumped into other guests only once when they were getting out of their car. Only at the end of our stay we discovered they had 2 young children, the villas were so private we couldn't hear them at all. All in all, I would definitely stay here again. And next time for at least a week. It takes a few days to unwind and then to start enjoying everything. Thank you to the team at Villa Sin Sin!
