A most wonderful experience

Reviewed March 22, 2012

My husband and i just got back from spending 8 nights in a one bedroom villa. It took my breath away when we discovered what was behind the huge wooden doors. A tropical paradise, absolutely gorgeous gardens surounding the wonderful pool and the outdoor kitchen / meals and day bed area are a fabulous. Inside, the cool airconditioned room was a welcome relief after the high humidity upon arrival. We had a chef come and cook breakfast for us in our villa each morning. The food was lovely and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Reception are very helpful and have all the answers for you. They'll book trips and taxis for you whenever you need, however the location of this villa is so close to the shops and restaurants and a million taxis go past you all day, just hail one at any time. What would normally cost around AUD20 in Melbourne will cost you about $1.50 in Bali, and they don't mind short trips. We just happened to be at the airport, leaving, when the 5 suspected terrorist were shot and killed. Despite this, I felt completely safe the whole time and i still would not hesitate to go back again. I would perhaps just stay clear of the bars where most of the young people hang out. Its the 'yobbo's' that upset the locals. Anyway, had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this villa. We'll be back for sure.
