8 women, 5 nights.
The villa is a winner, the grounds and house design are well thought out and really maximise the ocean view as well as how the place works. Gardens really well maintained, as are the pools. The deckchairs and umbrellas are in good shape and the internal furnishings all clean, comfortable and well presented.
The bedrooms are nicely furnished and very roomy. We had 2 of our group in the 2 rear rooms and the other 6 in the front three rooms. Each of these front rooms were set up with an extra single mattress so all 8 of us could have our own bed. Big bathrooms, some with out door showers, all with rainshower heads and wand showers. Double sinks and tons of cupboard and wardrobe space.
We had several lunches in and the food was great, it was very easy to negotiate a menu with Cumi (the cook). She was quite happy to cook items not on the suggested menu. Dewa, the driver, very kindly organised a babi guling (whole suckling pig with Balinese spices) for us on our last night and Cumi made a wonderful Balinese urap dish (green beans and coconut salad) (as well as rice, veges, spinach, etc) to accompany it. She also made sate lilit which was delicious. A birthday cake was also easily organised. Breakfasts were juice, eggs, bacon, toast and tea/coffee. Very enjoyable. If you wanted a different kind of breaky I imagine that this could be organised- maybe email before hand?
Staff all very pleasant, very unobtrusive. Dewa deserves a special mention, he is a great ambassador for Villa The Shore, a really lovely man.
The car/driver service was a huge asset, we didn't use it extensively every day but it was really convenient to get out to Seminyak, out for dinner, etc
Location worked for me, I really love the beach for walking and observing the locals way of life. Additionally, if you like to walk- it was a very easy, short walk through the village to the very lush green rice fields or up the beach in either direction to the sea temples or Echo Beach Precinct.
All in all a great stay, highly recommended.
Addit- we organised for massage/scrubs/facial/pedicure therapists to visit. We used Casa Villa Visiting Spa and they were great. Ayu called them for us and set up a time for them to come. If you want any further details I am happy for you to message me.
