We stayed at the Orchid 3 for 8 days, I will start with the whole administration/booking experience. Communication was excellent and all my enquiries were handled in a timely and professional manner. The driver was waiting for us on our arrival at the airport, he did not however know where the villa was located. To be honest I was a little disappointed in the location, it was in Bumi Ayu 1, which is actually like a little alleyway and a dead end, so even though we were only one row from the main road, we had to walk in a roundabout way to get there, however it was not so bad and it also made for a quiet time with no traffic being able to use it as a cut through. The villa is a bit smaller than I thought, they have a good photographer who has made the villa and pool appear bigger than it actually is. The house keeper Bagus was there to welcome us, he is a little treasure and was always there when we needed him. We actually rearranged the main bedroom as I do not like to sleep against the wall, and must admit that the room actually looked a lot better and more welcoming. The bathrooms are really more of wet areas, no glass or curtains around the shower, this made for a messy and slippery bathroom. We had to ask for more towels on occasion, as clean towels were not really forthcoming, also the linens did not actually fit on the bed. It is worth noting that there was no hairdryer or soaps and shampoos provided, these items are listed in the facilities in the listing, so be prepared and take some with you. The kitchen was a good size, however, there is no microwave or grill, they do have a stove top, toaster and blender. There is also only one frying pan and a larger pot for cooking, this probably will not bother most, but I enjoy making breakfast and found it difficult to do any variations. It is worth noting that the villa is located amongst a local community and a rooster who I think is confused about the time he should be waking us up. I have always given honest reviews and regardless of what I have written above we had a wonderful holiday and felt very relaxed and reluctant to leave.
