We enjoyed a great 7 night stay at Paradise Loft villas, the staff are so friendly and welcoming, they couldn't do enough for you.
Word of warning though the Villas are located quite a way from anywhere and although the staff offer a shuttle service you will require to get a taxi back. The taxi from Jimbaran cost us approx 40,000 rupee, approx $4 and is only a 10 minute ride. The complex itself is only half built and will be quite a substantial set up when it's complete, they are located on a steep slope though so would not recommend for people with mobility problems. There is some noise from the work site but they start and finish at reasonable times. Being away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts mean that it's quiet and peaceful.
As I said before the staff are helpful and friendly although they speak limited English they will endeavour to help if required. They run a shuttle service to nearby places but this actually involves you telling them where you want to go and them taking you....it was quiet when we visited so they obliged straight away, unsure how this will work when the resort is fully built and with a lot more guests.
Room was cleaned daily with fresh towels. Breakfast is delivered to your room at the time you nominate they currently don't have a restaurant on the complex so it is made off site and brought to your room. You have a choice of Balinese or American breakfast - we were wimps and opted for the American which comprises of eggs to your choice, pastries and fresh fruit. Rooms are clean and neatly presented, we had no issues although there was no hot water. I think this may have been because of the building works but it helped keep you fresh!! Pool also is lovely and very handy, although limited furniture on the decking, the large bench/chair offers shade but has no cushion on it so gets uncomfortable if sitting on it for long periods.
A visit to Jimbaran bay is a must. We spent a day at the Intercontinental resort right on the beach front. For about $30 for 2 people we got 2 sun loungers, towels and full use of the pool facilities. There is a nice bar which provides reasonably priced food and cocktails right to your sun longer! We got a spot right on the beach front so stayed for the full day! Lots of delicious places to eat right on the sea front.
We also spent the morning at Klub Jimbarran which is about 5 minutes from the hotel by car. Again cheap to use their facilities for the day and friendly staff.
We booked a few trips and drivers who were unsure of where the hotel is located with it only being new, again though the hotel obliged in giving directions to the operators.....the key is to ask, the staff are so friendly and keen to help.
Overall can't fault Paradise Loft Villas, we had a great, relaxing stay there. Would definitely recommend for those wanting to experience a bit more of the 'real Bali' away from the main built up resorts.
