Our stay Tropical Oasis was the highlight of our Bali trip. The villa is well equipped with all the things a traveller might need. The shiny blue pool is definitely the star of the villa. The hosts Thomas and Soviana are warm and welcoming. You will always find them ready to assist you in your day trips, give helpful tips and contacts for a better experience. We absolutely loved Tropical Oasis and plan to come back again with family. 2 thumbs up!!
Staying with Thomas and Soviana was a wonderful way to start off our holiday. My bf and I aren't usually very sociable people but Thomas and Soviana made sure we felt at ease from the get-go. No other host will welcome you the way they do. You can sense that they genuinely want to talk with you and not just for some formalities. They will help you with anything!
The accommodation itself is very homey and everything simply works. The place was spotless and we can tell Soviana likes to keep things that way! The swimming pool was great for a cool midnight swim, which we did both nights of our stay. We also found time to cook a small meal in the well-stocked kitchen in our room, but even if you don't plan on cooking, worry not - there are places selling food nearby and also a minimarket that, as Soviana tells us, sells everything you need.
The location is secluded but a short scooter ride will get you anywhere. We even went to the Uluwatu temple by scooter and found that the temple is not as far as Google Maps make it seem to be!
Thomas and Soviana were eager to tell us their favorite places to dine and visit in Jimbaran, we wish that we had stayed longer to try them all! Our favorite was the Fish Market. Oh, and another regret of ours was not trying Soviana's Swedish massage. Definitely have to try next time!
As some have mentioned this is a real Airbnb accommodation in which you are welcomed into the host's home. This being said, we never felt like we were lacking privacy - Thomas and Soviana were never intrusive, but at the same time we know that they'll be there should we need assistance.
Thomas and Soviana are very dear and caring people. As for me personally, I definitely would be returning - even if it's only to meet them again!
I have thought long and hard on this review or if I should even bother as I know I will get an Owners Reply...let's start. The Villa is in a rural location on a High vantage point for some amazing vistas and Suntset photos. The pool was our highlight, deep and refreshing. The villa itself is maintained to a clean and well appointed standard. Breakfast provided was of high quality to make yourself. The lovely Wife, Sovi, was a delight, kind, friendly. She went above and beyond helping us do some much needed washing. This is where it ended. As a party of 3 one of our group had friends from NZ visiting in the area and had planned to be collected for a days outing. She waited in the safety of the villa. Upon collection she and the friends collecting her,were basically abused by The Villa owner Thomas, for having her friends in the courtyard waiting for her to change. Dress does not = Scooter...later in the day I proceeded to be accosted by emails from the The Villa Owner Thomas, questioning our Honesty and Integrity! Reminding us in mutilpul email attachments of his Rules of stay in His Villa. His attitude was aggressive and downright rude. Why he could not have had a calm and respectful conversation when we returned later that day who knows??!!
All 3 Adults staying were completely blown away by the tirade and completely unnecessary reaction. This area is not an area for a Single White Female to be waiting outside a Very Well Gated Compound by herself.
So we left. Early. We no longer felt welcome. We are very honest and respected people. We have never in all the countries we have traveled had our Honesty Questioned. All we wanted was a relaxing holiday especially after the Traumatic Accident in Seminyak we had rescuing a local 6 year old boy trapped by his hand in a Escalator in Seminyak Mall. We are good people Thomas, it's a shame your hot head and anger got the better of you, or you would have known this of us.
We had an amazing stay at the Tropical Oasis and Thomas & Soviana are absolutely wonderful hosts! We arrived later than planned but they were very accommodating. When we stepped into the villa, we were greeted warmly with welcome drinks and refreshments prepared by Soviana herself. The villa was clean, comfortable, and authentically Balinese. The view at the rooftop terrace was breathtaking! Soviana is very thoughtful and detailed oriented and we had everything we needed to feel at home. We would highly recommend Thomas and Soviana's place for a memorable stay in Bali!
Our family of 4 stayed in Tropical Oasis for a week and really enjoyed it! The hosts -Soviana and Thomas - are TOP rated for a reason! The villa is very nice, clean and there is everything you need to feel relaxed and like home. Swimmig pool, air conditioning, beautiful garden with flowers and butterflies and even fresh fruits right there! Also when you come the fridge is ready for you with organic eggs, bread, cereals and milk. Soviana and Thomas are very welcoming and warm hosts. They are ready to assist and help you in every possible way to make your stay comfortable and easy. Soviana also does professional massage, she has her massage parlour straight at the villa.
The location is ok as you can quite easily get everywhere you want - beach, restaurants, shops and around the island.
Also there is a veranda on the roof of the villa, where you can enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets!
We recently stayed at Tropical Oasis for a few nights during our time in Bali. We initially had a bit of trouble finding the place but we had our driver call Soviana and she came and found us. The villa was lovely with the pool bigger than we'd expected and the guesthouse was clean and well equipped. The location was a little out of the way but taxis were cheap for everywhere we wanted to go. We can't speak highly enough of Thomas and Soviana, and no surprise they're 'Super Hosts'. They're easy to talk to and really interesting people. We sat and had drink with them on the roof terrace when we arrived. They gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation for our first night and gave us a lift to the beach the following morning. They were also full of great little tips to ensure we got the most from our time with them.
Tomas and Soviana are so friendly. Their house was just the perfect place to begin our trip in Bali. They organize our pick-up at the airport, and they welcome us with a fresh mango juce, just what we need after a long journey (with the pool to relax!!). They also organize our transfer into ubud by tanah lot temple. So in fact, it was just perfect.
