Papaya Villa is perfect accommodation for families or groups looking for a central Sanur location. Set one street back from Jalan Danau Tamblingan and only a 3 minute walk from Hardy's front door, the Villa is easy walking distance to restaurants and the beach. The hosts, Bill and Maureen, provide superior service from initial enquiry through to arranging transport to the airport for the flight home. They were always available to help with Villa questions and to provide local advice.
The villa has a great layout for three couples or family groups. There is even an option to book the neighbouring two bedroom Villa with interconnecting door for even larger groups. We made great use of the internal air conditioned lounge room to watch movies as well as the meals area in the breeze-way by the pool. The washing machine, water cooler and daily maid service are great add-on features that made the stay even more enjoyable.
We made good use of the pool and deck lounges and even the small wahrung across the laneway for drinks and local food. Our only criticisms were a very hard bed in one of the rooms and a barking dog late at night (Bill has been talking to the owner to sort it out).
I have no hesitation in recommending Papaya Villa and will definitely stay there again if traveling with my family or a group of friends. A truly memorable experience.
We have just returned home from Papaya Villa in Sanur and can't say enough about it. Having stayed in many different places before, Papaya Villa is by far the best. It's close to the main street (easy walking distance) but in a quiet location. Bill and Maureen, the owners, welcomed us and were available if we had any questions. They had drinks and some food stocked for our arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. I was a bit apprehensive booking a villa as we have a toddler, but Bill arranged pool fencing, cots and toys! There was even a car seat available. The villa itself was gorgeous, clean and beautifully decorated and the pool was amazing. There's even a tiny restaurant across the lane that serves your food right to your table in the villa. We were absolutely blown away with the villa and how welcome we were made to feel. We will definitely come back again!
We stayed at Villa Papaya for 10 nights in late August. The location of the villa is fantastic, close to the main street yet private and secluded. The villa is clean and tidy, the pool was beautiful and well maintained. Bill and Maureen are very welcoming hosts with great local knowledge and easy to deal with. Kadek, the house keeper, is very friendly and always had a big smile for our girls. Having stayed at various locations around Sanur, we found this to be ideally situated with so many great amenities within walking distance. We will be back soon.
Our family stayed at the Papaya villa for one weeks holiday in June. Great villa & perfect location close to everything especially Hardy's. Bill & Maureen helped make our holiday such a great experience. As a single mother with children who never had travelled out of Australia before Bill & Maureen was a great support to our family. Papaya villa was lovely, & well maintained, Kadek our cleaner was wonderful. Bill helped us organise everything from drivers for outings, airport transfers, advice on Bali attractions all of which were taken care of by very honest & reliable people he recommended. Honestly dont look any further this is the place to stay, not just because of the beautiful villa but the personal touch that Bill & Maureen gives their guests. I was never worried & they always helped with anything we needed. It was certainly a pleasurable stay, oh & before I forget you must visit OMG massage which is just practically next door the best & cheapest massages ever.. Really everything is at your door !
Ideal central location within easy walking distance of resteraunts, beach and shops. The villa is clean, well maintained and complete withe everything you could need in a home away from home. The welcoming Bintang were much appreciated as well as the kitchen basics. Very friendly and accommodating hosts who were available if needed. What more could you ask for?!
We stayed early June for three nights to start our Bali holiday.
Perfect location as walkable to many restaurants and right behind Hardys for necessities.
Only short taxi ride to amazing beaches and more restaurants.
Lovely and clean villa with everything you need for a family holiday. Toys, games, pool toys, cot, we only had to bring ourselves.
Thank you for a great relaxing start to holiday, wish we had if made it for longer :)
We stayed here for 10 nights in April with my husband & I, daughter & son-in-law and the two grandchildren.
The villa is very spacious, with comfortable beds and an awesome pool.
Bill & Maureen were most helpful, even putting up a pool fence for our little 2 year old granddaughter (even though in the end it wasn't really needed but then it came in so handy as a washing line!)
Having a washing machine was fantastic! And not to mention free WiFi.
It is located not too far off the main street with Hardy's close by.
We got breakfast a couple of times just outside the villa which was okay.
Kadek and Dede, who cleaned up after us, were just lovely.
