“Very, Very Nice”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Unfortunately, we only had 2 days at the Gangsa, but it was a very memorable stay. The compound is tucked away in a residential area of Sanur and is a well run hotel. All the staff we encountered were warm, hospitable and genuinely welcoming.

We had a wonderful massage through the spa and also had a poolside, candlelit BBQ dinner at our villa. Both services were excellent . The shuttle to the beach is efficient and will always be back at the beach to pick you up at the time that you ask. There is an attendant on the beach to help with anything and offers water when needed. He can also call the hotel to change your shuttle pick up should you choose.

Our 2 teen girls loved the villa pool and the day bed by the pool. We have no complaints with The Gangsa other than we wished we had stayed a few more days.

We have just returned from the most magical holiday at The Gangsa Villas, Sanur. We have stayed in many places throughout the world but nothing compares with the quality of food, service and accommodation provided at The Gangsa. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff and we really felt like part of the family. The only problem was having to leave!!! We will definitely be back.

From the moment we walked through the door and into the Gangsa compound we were treated like royalty. Everyone was polite and welcoming. On our walk through the beautiful grounds we were told we had been upgraded to a three bedroom villa. When we walked through the next gate we were taken into a compound that wasn't a lot smaller than our property at home (or that's how it seemed). We had three large rooms with clean and unique bathrooms that were open air and two with outside showers.
There was a wall-less lounge and dining area and an adjoining kitchen all joined by paths and bridge over a pond. We also had a 7 metre lap pool and a raised queen sun bed. All of this for our family of 4. Meals could be ordered and they arrived at the specified time and our table laid and meal put out for us to just sit and enjoy. We couldn't fault any aspect of the service.
There was a free car and driver available to take us to the local area and we could ring to be picked up when we needed to return. This was also available to go to Kuta or Seminyak but only at certain times.
We found it amazing that the compound we had was so private and quiet considering everything that was going on around us.
It was a real find and we are looking forward to going back!

A very memorable and lovely 4D3N stay at The Gangsa 1 bedroom Villa. The villa is very well-kept, clean and very spacious(300 sqmter). Tropical greens, quite and private surrounding. Consists of only 11 villas. Jegogan is the name of our villa, and is located right to the end, which is very private. The villa comes with a pool, double stories, an open air dinning and living area. All staffs are very professional, polite and always comes with warm , great smile; and they are very attentive to guest. Love the 24 hours butler service. Very memorable sun rise breakfast at the beach.
Very highly recommend for a full service villa.

Hidden in the back streets of Sanur is the beautiful Gangsa. There are 11 villas in total (im pretty sure) and they are huge. We had a villa with a private pool, outdoor/indoor bathroom, outdoor entertaining area (under cover), outdoor dining, outdoor kitchen, another bedroom upstairs with bathroom and toilet and another outdoor toilet down stairs. The space was wonderful, we didn't use the upstairs as there was only the two of us. The pool was pretty big and we used the outdoor area all the time. The staff were fantastic and happy to please you. We had our own personal butler at call. We paid for breakfast included everday and you can either eat at the restaurant or they deliver it to your room daily. The breakfast is as big as you want it, your choice. I had my birthday while I was there and my partner organised a special private dinner at the villa and when we got home from our day out the whole pool hald been completely covered with petals and arrangements... BEAUTIFUL. All the staff turned up after the meal with a traditional Indonesian birthday cake for me and the all sang to me. That was the highlight of my holiday. You also have a personal driver to take you to and from the beach, shops, etc. We walked it a bit also and realised once you cross the main road its not far through the back street to the beach walking. When you get to the beach there is a personal butler (Yoeman) there just for Gangsa that will look after you all day in a perfect spot on the beach just for you. He was very friendly and we ended up going out with him on his friends personal traditional fishing boat snorkling and the intention of fishing over the reef. We took the esky with some beer and it was the perfect day out, nice and relaxed with a couple of locals. We also did a day tour to Ubud through the Gangsa with a butler. We had a private picnic up in the hills overlooking the view, very nice. Also we did the touristy thing which was included in the tour. The Gangsa was a wonderful experience and we would definately recommend everyone to go there!

A beautiful villa. Upon arrival we were given a cocktail menu to choose a complimentary tropical welcoming drink. We had a two bedroom villa and it was very spacious and comfortable indeed. Replenished daily bar fridge (soft drinks) and endless cornflake cookies, think I ate about a hundred of them :) Afternoon tea, we had Lemongrass, Ginger, English breakfast, different pots of tea almost everyday with two different small cakes to accompany.
Living area was very comfortable with tv, video and stereo. There is a kitchen too if you should ever need one (I didnt lol) and even a room upstairs that can be used as an office or third bedroom.
Staff were wonderful. Breakfasts were amazing, you could eat in restaurant or villa, we ate in villa everyday. Rides into Sanur anytime you wanted and into Kuta three times a day. Had wonderful relaxing massage at their spa. Swam endlessly in the largest private plunge pool I have ever had the pleasure of swimming in. They arranged VIP airport service for arrival and departure, which was just marvellous and so necessary at chaotic Denpasar airport...it was $25 per person arrival and certainly worth the money. Someone is waiting with a board with your name on it when you disembark off the aircraft, they walk you through to arrival hall, you hand over your passport and visa money and they arrange it all for you, hey presto, you are through customs (Diplomat line) in about five/ten mins.
We were there for Nyepi Day, day of silence, which was lovely to experience, the whole island is so still and peaceful...you certainly notice the noise the next day when out and about.

Rooms:
We're up-graded to a 2-bedroom pool villa. Wow! The pool, the garden, the open-air living room are amazing & totally private! The main bedroom is also beautiful with a huge bed & nice mosquito net (it looks good & very important!). The ceiling of bedroom is high & made of bamboo & traditional Baliese architecture! As it's wet season, it seems the smell of wet carpet... we searched for a scented candle but for repelling such smell! The other bed is a twin-bed room & also nice as the ceiling is not make of bamboo & wet smell free! Somehow the fencing door of the outdoor toilet can't stop the mosquito & the noise of heavy rain during the dawn as we tried it in 2nd nite.

Cleanliness:
Everywhere is clean & tidy & the butler try to keep the villa in good condition no matter we just left for dinner!

Location:
You may not find it by taking a taxi as it's really a hideaway! If you need, ask the taxi driver to drop you in some place, say MacDonald & call The Gangsa to pick you up.
It also takes you 15min to the beach if you love the beach, you may consider this is a con! But the best the is the hotel drivers are very nice, just call 15~20min ahead. He even brought you to a reliable money exchange or supermarket in Sanur area.

Service:
I have to say 1,000x thanks to all the staff: from the airport pickup to arrival & they prepared a nice birthday cake to my friend FOC (I requested when room booking & don't mind to pay for it.) & lots of staff came & sang w joy!

Value:
What else should I ask for more for 2 people up-graded to a huge villa!
