“Super for Family Holidays!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Our extended family of 8 adults + 3 kids stayed 4 nights at The Shore and enjoyed the property for its stylish, unpretentious vibe and proximity to the beach. The lap pool running beneath the living room and airy, spacious kitchen are highlights.

While we day-tripped to Seminyak and Ubud, a lot of our time was also spent at the villa swimming, surrendering to massages (the villa staff will help you book) and feasting. Cook Jumi is very experienced and together, we planned our vacation menu: dinner one night comprised BBQ items and satay; on another, sup buntut (Indonesian oxtail soup), beef rendang, variety of stir-fried veg, etc.

I found early mornings at The Shore especially glorious: cool and tranquil. The villa is equipped with a good sound system (with indoor and outdoor speakers), so bring your CDs and iPod. If you’re planning a birthday or anniversary celebration for extended family, The Shore is an ideal place to hold it.

Our stay at The Shore Villa was exquisite. Not only is the Staff very efficient but discrete and able to go beyond any guest's request. We stayed at the Villa for 4 nights and would have enjoyed staying more if time had not been a constraint! The Shore Villa is very well located: you can walk along the sea, you can easily access Seminyak thanks to the nice driver (about 15-20' drive), you can easily visit Bali for the day (Ubud, Tanah Lot Temple, ...) or you can just stay and enjoy all the Villa's facilities... laying down along the swimming pools, enjoy an in-house massage, watch the Balinese ceremonies that take place from time to time not far from the Villa.... but at all times, you will enjoy the refined Villa: a balance between luxury and authenticity, the sound of the waves. You will feel like being at home. I can only recommend the Shore Villa to any business man who needs a break, any family that would like to get together and enjoy a good time, any couple who would like to spend some quality time together. This stay was unforgettable. Thank you to everyone part of the Staff.

We met up to share a three generation holiday- three adult couples, four children of which 2 were babies and the other two were 3 and six years old.

Smooth transfer from the airport. Friendly and safe drivers. Helpful manager.

The five bedrooms were ample for this group. We had two vans at our disposal (paying fuel and overtime).

The staff are excellent- very friendly. The chef is excellent, we enjoyed her dishes very much eating in most of the time. We chose mostly Indonesian food, except for breakfast.

During five days, we mostly enjoyed the villa- nice pools, great just to sit at night and listen to the waves. We went horse riding on the beach one day, fishing on another, and spent a few hours in Ubud and in Seminyak each.

A special mention and thank you to all the staff, extremely friendly even by Balinese standards, knowledgeable and helpful for touring advice and just simply nice. The driver brought some chicken from his family's farm for our girls to see, and the gardener, who lives close by, proudly presented his fighting cock.

All in all one of the most relaxing and nicest holidays ever. We are already dreaming of the next trip there.

It is definitely one of our most unique experience staying for 3 nights at this spectacular private beachfront villa property in Bali. I simply can't stop raving on how amazing and great this villa was and I asked myself why didn't I book more nights for it. We booked an Ocean View suite villa and yes, the villa looks as good as advertised on the website! We have an ocean front infinity-edge pool with a 25m long connecting pool that stretches underneath our living room area and runs to the back of the villa.

The villa is located in a quiet village near Seseh Beach. Daily walks are a treat and you can even catch sunset while having your daily swim in the amazing infinity-edge pool. In addition, the location of the villa is far away from the congested town Kuta and Seminyak. We got a driver to ourselves and I must say he is really professional and dedicated to his job! He was always prompt and will share with us his experiences and even took the effort to suggest some activities for us.

Service was impeccable and adds on a personalized touch to it. Not to mention the cook that we have, who is splendid in whipping up delicious local cuisines such as Gado Gado, Mie Pangsit, Nasi Goreng and many moreee... It'll take me forever to stop raving on how good this accommodation was. Definitely a hidden gem in Bali!

Excellent, professional and caring staff: A driver with extensive local knowledge and a great and friendly demeanor; a highly talented cook that seeks to fulfill whatever culinary desire you may have; an attentive manager who truly cares about the quality of the guests experience; and dedicated service staff that were aware of our every need. Despite the size of our group and the unusually large amount of luggage we had, Dewa (our driver) came prepared and was very prompt and professional.

The green space at the villa is meticulously attended to, with tasteful landscaping and a thrilling view of the Bali coastline. The guestrooms adorned with a unique Balinese aesthetic with modern creature comforts faced the immaculate infinity pool nestled in luxurious setting of an inviting relaxation space and the wondrous tropical backdrop with the sound of rolling waves. The open concept of the living spaces, with the modern finishes including glass panels, and an excellent run of wonderfully finished hardwood created a wonderful parallel between traditional and contemporary aesthetic styles. The hanging staircase was another lovely feature that lead to spacious bedrooms with extensive closet space and high-end en suite bathrooms. The facilities in this house were amazing and ample.

Michael, the manager, was always available to help us plan for special events, setting up a birthday party with the breathtaking Balinese backdrop accented by wonderful and appropriate decorations. Even with all the creature comforts of a modern estate, nature's soothing hymn was always nearby. The rhythmic swells of the ocean played like masterful symphony against the gentle rustling of the vegetation and the choir of local fauna. Cumi, the masterful cook, would conjure up amazing local dishes like Gado Gado, great bbq mahi mahi, king prawns, Soto Ayam, Mee Goreng, all types of Satays, and lots of local desserts. She would delight our palettes with the immense repertoire of both local and international cuisines. Dewa would take us wherever we need to go and assist us in any activities we wanted to partake in. He was our connection to the local community, our expert guide and our representative of the amazing Balinese culture.

Bali may have villas that are comparable in beauty, but here, you get the whole package. You get people who genuinely care, and you get a tropical paradise.

we were whisked by our own driver to the villa, and when we arrived, we were blown away by how serene this place was. this is an award winning designed, modern balinese villa set on a bluff right over the beach, with beautifully manicured gardens, 2 swimming pools ( a lap pool and a recreation pool plus kiddie pool), and amazing views of the ocean. you can hear the sound of the lapping waves throughout the day. by night, the waves lull you into the most restful sleep....

the rooms are large with american king sized beds, very comfortable and 3 of them have amazing views of the beach and sea. the other 2 are more balinese designed and face the gardens and the lap pool. the bathrooms are huge with lots of closet space, and all the amenities of a 5 star hotel.

the villa comes fully staffed, and the best thing is that the cook is brilliant! Her cooking rivals even the best balinese restaurants, and when one can eat in the comforts of the villa, drinking our own wines and have the kids run around.... we wish we had eaten at the villa more often. the cook makes a mean indonesian roast stuffed duck ( bebek), soto ayam, fish curry, mie goreng etc. the staff can also organize massages which we had everyday in the yoga pavillion. the staff were also very good with kids and got kites for the kids even showed them how to fly them. so needless to say, we were totally spoilt and sad to leave.

the location is great, away from the hustle and bustle of legian/seminyak, yet only half an hour away. the villa also has a gym membership at a nearby health club for health nuts but we didnt use it. the driver which comes w the villa took us on a shopping trip to seminyak as well as to the dinners.

we would definitely be back soon and would highly recommend it for groups of friends and family.

What a wonderful getaway. We were picked up at the airport by the house driver, who also ferried us about for the next 3 days. Our 1st meal at the house immediately stamped a great impression on us, with excellent food that continued for all the meals we subsequently had in the villa. With Seminyak only 25mins away, we went out for a couple of pre-planned dinners, although I would have probably enjoyed staying throughout to enjoy the villa. We managed to take some nice walks in the beach and surrounds near the villa, but with the sound if crashing waves, our sleep daily was deep and peaceful. Unforgettable, and definitely due for many repeat visits!
