I stayed in Villa Sarna in Feb 2012.
Villa Sarna didn't give me a good impression right from the start. The journey from the airport at Depansar took about an hour and a half. And then, whilst Villa Sarna was located right in the middle of nowhere, instead of being really quiet, there was a very loud and irritating sound of someone cutting down trees nearby. ALL day. It was exasperating.
We escaped by taking the shuttle to town.
However, as dusk fell and we returned to Villa Sarna, it transformed into a most charming oasis. Apart from the sounds of crickets singing and toads croaking, it was really peaceful and quiet.
Each room in Villa Sarna is a little standalone hut. We had one right at the corner but I had the impression that most rooms were pretty private. There was a bed/ lounge chair right in front of ours which was fantastic.
Our stay was not without its fair share of troubles though. We had the aircon dripping with water one morning. And then an army of ants carried a dead cockroach right by our door on another morning.. and we had no water in our room on our last night in Bali. It was very difficult to brush and wash without any water.. and worse.. it was impossible to go to the bathroom.. And of course, throughout our stay, the tree cutting noises continued every morning and afternoon.
But the peaceful surroundings each evening, the wonderful breakfast every morning.. and the very friendly staff at Villa Sana made it impossible for me to like the place.
The breakfast every morning was also pretty good. Ask for the mini donuts - they are my favourite part of the breakfast every morning.
