One gets a Hollywood feeling entering the compound over a long private driveway where the villa unfolds itself after passing the gate and taking a right turn between lush green vegetation. There it is, a spacious contemporary villa with unobstructed views over the hillside towards the sea and over neighboring rice fields to the mountains at the opposite side. A warm welcome from Penny, the villa host and marvelous cook. She makes a healthy meal as promised and it was delicious. The well-kept spacious garden offers ample space to find yourself a place to relax and sit in the sun. Or you take a swim in the large pool. The sunset, whilst we were sipping from a glass of wine, was beautiful. There is also a BBQ corner, which we did not use. We booked too short and will be back if possible. It is a special place and worth every penny.
My Boyfriend and I stayed in Villa Bloom Bali for a few nights during our trip across Indonesia.
Never have I ever felt more pampered than during our stay there.
The reason for this is the full-care concept: Once you arrive, a personable and friendly staff team is there to take care of your every wish. Be it groceries, transport, excursions, laundry or home cooked meals... the staff has got you covered. However, they always respected our privacy, and we still felt like it was a romatic getaway for two, even with the staff present on the grounds.
The villa manager is there to help organize your day (if you wish), and is not only very sweet, but an amazing chef to boot. I am a vegan, and this was taken into account; delicious vegan pancakes and tropical fruits for breakfast, and a cruelty-free and tasty meal in the evening. My boyfriend eats whatever, so the kitchen staff would prepare something extra for him. They would surprise him with an extra plate of sunny-side-up eggs in the morning, for example, exceeding his expectations.
The villa itself is gorgeous and very comfortable. We felt very at ease, and enjoyed our time at Bloom Bali immensely. We hope to go back someday!
Together with our 2 children (4 months and 2 years old) and my parents in law we stayed in Villa Bloom for a week. The place is just perfect with kids! Everything is there: baby cot, kids chair, toys, big garden, a small slide and an amazing manager who loves kids and cooks healthy dinners for them, sterilizes bottles if needed and is happy to babysit in the evening. My kids adored Penny and I felt very comfortable leaving them with her in the evening. The pool is quite far from the terrace so the kids can play freely without the risk of falling into the pool in a second. It was just great and we didn’t have to worry about a thing the whole week. Taxi, really nice food, an amazing bbq, full fridge the whole week, excursions everything was possible upon request and well arranged. Also a great place to bring parents or in laws as they have a nice separate room with bathroom for them. We immediately booked two weeks for next year. Already looking forward to it! Tom and Penny, thanks so much for making us feel so welcome. We are completely re-energized and are looking forward to see you again next year!!!
My partner and I stayed at Villa Bloom in January and were blown away by the serenity of the surroundings. Villa Bloom is just gorgeous, the gardens and pool area are set up so well and the spacious, beautiful villa made for a wonderful retreat. Will definitely be back.
My wife and I explored Bali for 40 days.. we came to villa Bloom Bali for the last part of our trip.. we apparently saved the best for last.. for us, it was our favorite.. because of how quiet and peaceful it was... The house was great, practical, easy to use, Air connditioning was awesome... The servants were a joy.. the grounds, neighboring farms and view beautiful... We loved it... Off the beaten path... In an old Bali style setting but with a Westerners house design.. which I assure you is a very good thing... Thanks for such a great time...
We had such a lovely time in villa Bloom!
We fully enjoyed:
-All the preparations. No question was too much for Tom and Inge to serve us and to make it possible to facilitate a intimate silence retreat.
-The welcoming and always smiling gentle staff to maintain a very convenient stay.
-The cook was incredible, she made the most tasteful Ayurvedic meals for us. We all wanted to take her home.
-The very clean house and rooms
-The unbelievable magnificent always changing view!
-The energetic spot downstairs, near the stream, for our morning meditations
-the big swimming pool
-the beautiful flowering garden
Thank you for serving us these days in silence!
I saw a lot of pictures and videos about the villa before I came to visit in October 2016 and must say that actually staying there exceeded my expectations. It is such a beautiful and divine place and it makes you feel relaxed and recharged at the same time. You have your own privacy and can enjoy a peaceful holiday without any stress as the staff looks after you and prepares lovely meals for you based on your dietary requirements. Next time I come to Bali, I will definitely visit Villa Bloom again, must say that I fell in love with that place. The villa itself is in a very good condition and very clean. Lovina is such an unspoilt part of the island and gives you an opportunity to experience the local culture and life of local people.
