We loved our two night stay at Clove Villa. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, set in a quiet residential road, but we preferred to do without a lake view for a little more peace. It is easy to get a tuk tuk into the centre.
Clove villa is a new, architect designed building, with lofty wooden ceilings and plenty of light. The reception/dining area is particularly splendid. There is a nice pool set in a small well tended garden.
Clove Villa is lucky to have an excellent chef and although they do not sell alcohol, they are very happy for guests to provide their own.
For us, the best thing about Clove Villa is the wonderful, helpful staff, in particular superstar Charlie. My husband was taken Ill soon after we arrived, always a bit more disconcerting when in a foreign country. Charlie organised transport to take us to the nearby private hospital and thereafter personally oversaw his recovery, even providing him with a special medicine - chicken soup! He is such an asset to the place.
Clove Villa deserves it's growing reputation. We cannot recommend it enough.
