“Pool, gardens and design like no other”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This villa is superb. We were a couple staying for 5 nights and had my parents join us for 3 of them. The villa easily accommodates 6 people with 3 queen beds. Our stay here was luxurious! The surround are beautiful and the staff are helpful without being intrusive. There is a garden path leading to the water and you can arrange for a boat to pick you up directly at the front for early morning dolphin viewing. It is a little drive from the restaurants and Nyoman is happy to drive guests around, but we found hiring a motorbike ($5 a day!) gave us much more freedom to explore the neighbouring villages. There are many amazing villas in lovina, but you will be glad you picked this one!

“Excellent experiences, friendly staff”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We nine people including two kids stayed for three nights in the villa in February and regretted that we hadn't planned for a longer stay. After that we stayed in another two property, none of them could beat Shanti. The villa is gorgeously decorated, reflecting the owner's good taste. The house is very spacious, with enough space for all of us. The swimming pool is big. The garden is beautiful and well attended. We all loved the layout of the house, especially the second floor, where we relaxed on the balconies. In all four directions you can walk out and enjoy the outside views. Staff are very nice. Ketut did grocery shopping and cooking for us. The price is reasonable. Unfortunately we were not very used to Indonesian cuisines and several of us got sick. Next time we'll cook ourselves. It would be a pity not using the nice kitchen. It was the raining season and almost rained every afternoon. But it didn't bother us. You don't see the beach from the house but it's in fact only steps away. It's bad that the beach is lined with trash so it's not appealing for swimming. I hope local authority can do something about it in the future. We arranged a dolphin-watching event on the last day. It was great! With so many people going every day I wish the poor creatures are not disturbed. The only problem is that transportation is expensive. We were charged for Rp. 400,000 for half-day trip to Lovina, which is only a few kilos away. In short we had a great time in Shanti and will definitely come back!

Thanks so much for your kind review. It is nice to hear that you liked the house and staff. It is a pity that the beach and sea was not clean. We try to clean up the river and beach every day, but in the raining season unfortunately there is some dirt coming from the mountain. Also we hope that the goverment and local authortity will take this serious. In the meantime we only can learn our people to clean up the place and be careful with plastics.
It is also a pity to hear of the expensive transfer. In the north of Bali there are no or just a few taxi's. Transfer goes by AC VANs and for 9 persons renting a car will be possible the biggest problem. Anyway it is good to hear about this problem. We are going to look if there is a better solution for bigger groups. Hope to welcome you back again.

Kind regards,
Marja

“WOW - MAGIC”

What a place. From the moment you are greeted at the gate from your trip from airport to the moment you wave goodbye to new family. Once you walk through the gates you are blown away with the size, beauty and peaceful space of this villa. Our experience in Villa Shanti was magic. The beautiful gardens, the villa, the huge pool all to yourself and most importantly the Staff, what a beautiful bunch of people. Nothing was a problem, always with a friendly smile. The meals cooked by Ayu and Deyu were magic. The cleaning, the whole Villa and garden was spotless on a daily basis. Nymand was always there to help with whatever. Spent many afternoons talking about the traditions of the Balinese. Everyone of the staff made our holiday perfect. Ayu, Deyu, Nymand, Putu, Made, Kadek, Thankyou. I am so glad I stayed at Villa Shanti and met these beautiful souls.
Marja was fantastic to book with, any question I asked she would have a response back that day also with added information on places in Lovina, especially where to buy Vegemite. Visit Lovina Bakery. Lots of nice goodies there.
My father turned 73 yrs while we were away and Marja organised to have a banner made for him. Wow, what a wonderful touch. Nymand gave him a basket full of Balinese goodies. Yum.
If I need to add any negative points it would be the lighting. My dad commented on the lighting in the bedroom though it didn't bother me at all.
Lastly, this villa is well worth the 3 hrs travel from airport, to walk into paradise.
Thanks again to all. What a wonderful holiday.

“Absolutely brilliant place to stay for a holiday”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have no words to describe how much we loved our stay at Villa Shanti. The villa itself and the garden are absolutely STUNNING! We came to the villa with our 18 months old son and this was perfect for us. The villa offers plenty of space, the garden as well and it has an amazing swimming pool which is kept clean at all times. We also enjoyed the beach which is adjacent to the garden. The staff of the villa are very lovely people especially to children. They were caring during our whole stay and whenever we needed something they were always there to help. Ketut is the name of the lady who cooks and she prepared for us absolutely amazing meals. I have some allergies to MSG and she was able to cook without using this ingredient during our stay which made a big difference for me. I cannot recommend enough this place. The owners are very helpful during the booking process and answered any question we had. And the villa and the garden are a little paradise which helped us recharge our batteries before starting work again.
