“Not Luxury But Still Very Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The better part got a great deal on a week at Villa Mahapala and so off we went. Whilst not right on the beach I can walk 75 metres if I need to this was close enough to beach front for us, mind you with our own plunge pool and the 25 metre pool we never actually got into the beach. The location is great for a quite week in Sanur, with easy access to either the beach front restaurants or thos on the street.
There is something special about having breakfast brought o your own Villa every morning – good range of choices and the food was above average but not outstanding – and enjoying said breakfast poolside. Other then breakfast we only eat once on site – the food was OK but the service very poor, essentially they forgot one dish. WiFi by the main pool was free and OK but you had to pay for this in each Villa.
The rooms were a little tired, maintenance being an issue in Bali. I suspect if we had paid full price I would have been critical of the uneven nature of the house keeping, and the little details needing attention such as peeling sealant around the bath. The sheets were stained, but clean. The gym pleasant but half the machines didn’t work. But I didn’t pay full price and they give us complementary late check-out so I am prepared to turn a blind eye to these shortcomings. I would be back at Villa Mahapala in a flash if I got a similar discount ( ~ 40%) but wouldn’t rush back at full price.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here last June 2014. It was our weekend getaway and we weren't disappointed.
Not only the place is beautiful and relaxing, the location was perfect. The place is not to close to the crowd city center but also not to far where you can't go shopping to buy a thing or two.
The services were prompt and courteous. I love how the attendants were very helpful when we asked for some guide and tips for our self-adventure in Bali. However, they do offer their own tour packages which I think were good deals if you are not familiar with Bali.
Overall, it was definitely a great stay and an experience that I am surely looking forward when I visit Bali again next time.

Room Tip: Get their beach view room if possible and enjoy their spa after you go out exploring Bali for the wh...

We stayed in the villa for 3 nights and got engaged in this beautiful setting. The staff were so professional and helpful. Minutes from the beach and all restaurants. The private swimming pool is amazing and the room itself is so comfy. The breakfast is excellent and there are a number of options from different countries to choose from. will definitely return to this beautiful hotel.

We couldn't be more pleased w/ our stay at Mahala. The room is something I could only imagine, breakfast was great, and AC worked perfectly in the Indo heat. Only complaint was the restaurant and bar staff were MIA. At one point we almost mixed our own drink behind the bar. Not enough bothersome to remove a star rating tho!

This is by far the most amazing hotel I've ever stayed in.

A huge selection of breakfasts, included in the price we paid, which were served to us in our private villa every morning.

Our PRIVATE POOL, was in the compounds of our private villa. This was surrounded by a lounge area, a sun tanning area, a sink and an eating area. Very nicely decorated as well! The pool was connected to the side of the villa by three doors. One door lead to the washroom (with tub -- super rare in the area -- and an outdoor, open air shower), the other sliding door went straight from the bedroom to the pool and the other door was the "main entrance" to the bedroom. Fairly spacious, but just unbelievable how much you get for the price! We booked through Agoda and were incredibly impressed with the facilities! It is also very close to the beach and night market (for food, etc).

This place is mind blowing, they take care of every aspect!!!
They offer you welcome drink when you are waiting for check in*(actually most of the Villa / Hotel in Bali has, but Mahapala has the best drink!! )
And the villa itself is isolate, so that really make you feel like you are the only guest, and relax
you can have you own huge private pool, outdoor living room...
Inside the room, the print of their mug is the depend on the guest's horoscope!!!!! how sweet is that!!! Not to mention the bath tub and the outdoor shower place, I have spent the whole night here, it's big, luxury and super clean.
Last but not least, the food here is THE BEST! You can choose your own breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner by country type (American, Indian, Japanese...), and they cook well, like everything is authentic and delicious, and you don't need to change your rope, cause you will gonna eat by your own private pool!!
The service, we ordered massage and manicure, the staff are all very nice.
If you have a chance to stay here, please spend you time in the villa, and enjoy the time of your life, and i will definitely stay again !
