Now we're talking.... Bali has it's fair share of crappy accommodation at extortionate, unsubstantiated prices. This place is a GEM. Western style house with indoor living room, bathrooms AND kitchen. About 2500 sq ft in size.
It IS off the beaten path so if you're looking for action packed anything this is not here, but you wouldn't be looking for that up North where it's so much more authentic. This is where you will relax and let every knot of stress slip out of you. Maybe go diving.
The staff are great. When you visit, look out for Made in the restaurant. He's a lovely character. Genuine and witty with that delicate balance of professionalism thrown in. I hope life rewards him well, he introduced us to the evening market 'experience' in the village (a 5 minute amble where all the locals will stop & chat) where the local ladies offer traditional meals & snacks at very low prices; you mightn't know what you're getting and that's half the fun. A little less english speaking in the village but it's not a problem.
And one morning at breakfast I questioned what the fin was in the water the previous day and was given a funny look because everyone knew it was dolphins (OMG!). They're such a common sight there I guess because of the tuna and fish farm. That day I saw mother & baby dolphins leaping out of the water. They were SO CLOSE to the poolside. Maybe 50 yards. December is a month prolific with sightings apparently but check with Chandra, the owner to get the best times.
A gardener climbed & clipped coconut trees while we were there. It's an education in itself to see this.
The laundry needs a teensy bit of work, maybe an extra scoop of detergent. Nothing to get upset over.
Excellent accommodation, dynamite housekeeping, lovely pool and if you're lucky you'll have the place to yourselves. Just watch the moats around each villa (to deter ants etc), our kids had no probs and were happily occupied watching the fish.
Zero issues with mosquitos and ants stayed outside mostly, just the odd straggler inside.
The pool is lovely. No chlorine to destroy your hair.
Oh and there's a HAMMOCK. I snook off one day on it and closed my eyes. It sounds cheesey but the serenity was there in spades. So simple but you will love it.
Stayed a few places all over the island of Bali and this is the only place I'd return to with my family.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our small, truly eco-friendly, "private luxury villas & spa" will put you in a location with a level of luxury and price unparalleled in Bali. Our aim is to provide you with the image you have / had of Bali before you come / came to the "Island of the Gods" for the first time. And to spoil you, without pretension or starch, like nowhere else can. You may rent any of our three large villas individually, or collectively as a completely private, luxury holiday / vacation home. We have 3 large and fully furnished luxury villas and each villa is set back only 30 meters from the unspoiled, pristine waters of the northern Bali Sea, and that 30 meters is mostly spanned by each villa's private gazebo and then our infinity edge swimming pool that sits just meters over Bali Sea. Unlike most all other hotels/resorts/villas on Bali we do not have any seasonal surcharges and maintain our particularly low rates year round. Each fully furnished villa has a kitchen, living/TV room, patio, individual gazebo, and three air-conditioned bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 adults. Our reasonable rates are tiered by the amenities and services we offer in each of our packages and are based on the master bedroom being occupied by two adults, with a small extra fee for each additional guest. Our open air waterfront restaurant and our sea-side spa, the only two story building on our property, along with our dedicated staff complete what we feel is the perfect setting for seclusion and serenity. We warmly welcome you to visit our little piece of paradise on the Island of the Gods, Bali. ... more less
