“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

From the time we were met at the Airport until we left, the villa and service exceeded our expectation, the location was perfect mins walk from a sandy bay where a gentle breeze whispered through the sun shades, plenty of restaurants near by. The accommodation was superb, the staff were on hand but not obtrusive, breakfast made and rooms tidied as if my magic. Very spacious and luxurious, stayed for 5 days only wished we could have stayed longer. Very highly recommended. Thank you Ellora Villa for all round excellence.

We loved our stay at Ellora. When entering the alley where it is located, you don't expect thiese beautiful villas to be at the end of it. They are spacious and very well maintained. The outdoor terrace is great with lots of furniture and an own kitchen. The private pool is clean and very refreshing. Every morning two very friendly guys come to your villa to make you a fresh breakfast. Overall, a wonderful relaxing experience to finish our holidays.

I would have given 5 stars, if there would not have been the wifi-issue, which annoyed us throughout our stay. For this price and in a villa where you can spend whole days, you expect a good wifi-connection. However, most of the time it does not work and if it works, it takes literally 5 minutes to load a page. We wanted to do some work, use skype etc, but we had to go to the nearby Starbucks to be able to do this, while we had such a great villa. The signal at Ellora is just strong enough to update your mailbox, not more than that. It was not an incident, but a structural problem, so I think Ellora should fix this or manage customer expectations by not advertising with "free wifi throughout the villas". A smaller thing is that not all personnel at reception speaks English. Although they all are really friendly and hospitable, they were not able to help us or gave the wrong answer on a couple of occasions. We found this a bit strange and a contrast to other luxurious places where we stayed in Bali.

Overall though, lovely relaxing villas.

My wife and I spent 6 nights at Ellora Villas in June. We would have no hesitation in returning at a later stage as our stay there was so relaxing. The staff are very helpful and polite and the service we could not fault. The villas are clean, the pool crystal clear and the bedding comfortable. Location is great as beach and restaurants are all close.

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Bali, waiting for our ferry to Lembongan Island the next day.

The staff were great, the Villa was clean and huge - our pool perfectly clean.

We had a nice time and would come back again...

We stayed as a couple in one of the one bedroom private pool villas. We managed to get an excellent deal as we flew Jetstar and managed to get 45% off their published rates and breakfast and airport pickup included. The villas are located off the main road in from the beach in Sanur. I can't remember our villa number but it was very quiet and clean.
The bedroom was huge but the TV was tiny, and the bathroom enormous with lots of towels and toiletries, we used the outside shower as it was very humid using the inside shower. The outdoor dining area was good and breakfast was prepared there every morning.
The best thing was the pool - very large and lovely to swim in. The garden areas were very pretty and the pool chairs could be moved.
We took advantage of the cooking class held over at the Ellora Group cafe in Sanur. It was good to go early and see where the locals shop in the market and watch the chef prepare a number of Balinese dishes. Very tasty and you get the recipes and a certificate too!
The villas have access to the other the Ellora group beach club and beach cafe. We chose not to use these.
The only disappointment was the air-conditioning which did not work properly and the fan was so noisy at night that we had use ear plugs. We did ask for the air conditioning to be fixed adn someone did look at it but it still didn't work. The design of the villas mean that they really heat up in the day and there is no way for them to open up and cool down at night.
These private pool villas are excellent value for money. But I don't think we will be back.

Room Tip: The private pool was excellent

From check in to check out the staff and service at Ellora Villas was impeccable. Our family of 3 stayed in villa F for 4 nights. If I had to think about a negative the only one I could come up with was that the floor in the indoor shower was really slippey as it is all polished marble tiles, but after one near slip we used the outdoor showers which felt super indulgent. Would go back in a heartbeat. Location was great. Oh and the breakfasts and before dinner cocktails. I could go on forever.

Return visit to The Ellora - just like going home to friends. Staff are all very obliging and friendly they even remembered the fact that we requested an electronic mozzie zapper last time - it was already in the villa when we arrived. Shuttle bus to take you locally - never a problem - staff presented me with a cake on my birthday even wrapped the present my husband bought. Villas are kept immaculate, as is the pool which is a step outside your bedroom door . Breakfast always on time and well cooked with a good choice. 5 nights was definitely NOT long enough. We will be returning!
