Probably the best located villa in Sanur. Nice place, comfy, good service from staff. Airconditioned bedrooms very cosy and linen lovely - would ideally like airconditioned living areas as they can be almost unbearable at times. Overall though a great villa and highly recommend (this is our 2nd stay and we will certainly be back)
Location was ideal - super close to the beach, shops and wonderful local and western restaurants and cafes.
However we didn't find the villa suitable for our requirements. The living area is not airconditioned so the only way to keep cool is to open all the doors for a breeze - not ideal with a 14month old that could then walk straight into the pool...Hans the manager helped up-end some furniture to make barriers so we could have one of the doors open a bit, but still very hot.
Heaps of mozzies - not unusual for Bali - so we had to invest in some fly spray for the couches etc each morning and night, plus heaps of personal mozzie repellant. Bali has lots of little ants and these guys came out in force if we dropped a single crumb in the kitchen or on the benches so we were always trying to keep them at bay too, but again, something we have previously experienced at other places in Bali.
The "maid" was nice - she and husband live onsite - but they just walked in and out unannounced throughout the day and could walk around the back where the open shower is etc so we didn't feel we had the privacy we would have liked. Dishes were done once and bathrooms and beds changed once in our 6-7 days there - just seemed to be a lot of sweeping and weeding of the garden beds more than anything. Very little english spoken.
The Hyatt is directly across the laneway, super close, and is undergoing major works. The same noise restrictions we are used to don't apply in Bali so very noisy steel works, angle grinders and banging and bright lights into the wee hours of the morning so wasn't exactly quiet and peaceful (plus had to have doors open in living area to keep cool so not great).
Hot water only lasts a few minutes in upstairs shower but it's not a big deal in Bali as it is so warm anyway.
Diane was super helpful in the lead up and throughout our stay so couldn't fault her service but the villa wasn't quite what we were hoping for.
The location was what kept us there for the duration of the stay.
Villa is in such a handy location. You just have to walk to the right for the beach or left to the shops. The housekeeper is very helpful and friendly and Hans the caretaker knows a lot about the area. We can't wait to return.
Have just visited my visited my favourite villa again - Villa Chantique
As always, just perfect!
Immaculately clean, spacious, private and peaceful.
Our home away from home.
Hans the manager called in every day to check we were okay, and the live-in maid was very helpful with everything, without being in the way.
The Hyatt across the road is being renovated but it didn’t cause us any problems.
Just a short stroll to cafes, the beach and shopping.
This villa couldn’t be in a more perfect position.
Very surprised to discover that "Bali Hyatt Hotel" started construction in December 2016 and we were not advised by Diane. This project will not be finished till end of 2018!! Noise of steel rebars being dropped and large trucks started at 7AM till 10PM daily. Cranes swinging over the Villa at night shining spotlights into the bedroom that did not have any blackout curtains - only sheers! We were not given any pool towels, and on the 2nd day no toilet paper. The housekeeper speaks a few words of English so saw her only when we checked in and the day we checked out. The location is walking distance to restaurants if you don't mind staying by a 10 acre "Construction Site"
Really nice villa, perfectly positioned near beach and restaurants - really enjoyed our stay- staff very attentive and gardens were lovely
Location was fantastic one end of the street is the beach the other end restaurants and shopping.The villa is spacious we stayed with another couple with our own ensuites.The pool was fantastic to cool off each day after exploring around the town or to sit and relax.Communication was quick and efficient couldn't fault anything.Would recommend to anyone.
