Villa Padi
Ranked #78 of 290 Speciality Lodging in Canggu
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We stayed in villa C for 10 days, absolutely beautiful. It was a lot further out than i had imagined and read about!, it took us 90 minutes by car to Kuta Square, the traffic is just so bad in Bali now. We were travelling with a 2 year old and a 5 year old and they did not enjoy sitting in the car hour after hour just to travel 16 kilometres.

Our driver Made was great and very helpful, his family make amazing cassava cakes and he was kind enough to bring us some, delicous!

The Villa was just amazing, so clean The staff were sometimes too enthusiastic to clean up before we had finished our meals which was annoying. The villa really is out in the middle of nowhere, no shops, no places to eat within walking distance. I was quite suprised that 7 out of the 10 nights we were there a neighbouring house or villa played "doof doof" music till 3 or 4 am, not very nice! I thought by staying out there we wouldnt have to put up with that!

We only had the staff cook meals once, i quickly cottoned on to the fact we were not only paying for our meal ingredients but also stocking their kitchen!. I cook purchase the ingredients in Australia for far less than what we paid them, when i was given my change and the reciept i could see why, so many extras had been purchased! 880g of chicken breast for 1 person?? That amount certainly didnt turn up on my plate! Not to mention half a kilo of tomatoes when 2 slices were needed! Not happy about this! We ended up eating out for far less $$ or going to Bali Deli ( very nice and posh for bali) and buying our own food for 1/4 cost, tuna steaks for $2, squid $4 kg, yummo! I dont think the staff liked us much once we didnt order anymore meals from them!

Nice place but probably wouldnt stay again

Got a great price for a three bedroom villa from their own website. Stayed for three nights only. Was travelling to Canggu for a wedding so wanted to stay somewhere near by and I think villa padi was a great choice.

Picked up by our provided very good driver (thanks Jay) from our accommodation in Kuta right on time. He was our own personal driver available to us for 8 hours a day, included in the very reasonable price. Also included was a fresh indonesian meal cooked up right there. The squid was the best I've ever had.

Our upstairs room was extremely spacious and well decorated. The other rooms were smaller but quite charming. All had lovely en suite bathrooms. The pool was lovely and cool and a good size. The garden is lush and well kept with a view of the rice padies.Could walk to the local deserted beach. Echo Beach restaurants were a short drive away.

These villas really are out in the middle of nowhere, a world away from the noise and chaos of Kuta. If that is what you are after then this could well be the place for you. For me three nights in Canggu was more than enough, there is really nothing much there. The padi fields are very picturesque but I was over them after a couple of days.

On the downside the advertised free internet was not available, and the only TV channels were all Indonesian, nothing english speaking. The staff are willing and able but perhaps a little raw, maybe language barriers are a bit of an issue? All minor points though, overall we enjoyed our short time there, but in the end couldn't wait to get back to some hustle and bustle in Kuta.

We were met by our friendly drivers at the airport, who must've patiently been waiting as it took us awhile to get through customs. It was not a very long drive to Villa Padi and once we arrived we were greeted by Mia and a very friendly Cardek, given a much needed Iced watermelon drink then shown to our room. The room was gorgeous, couldn't have asked for more. King sized bed, air con available and also a computer for our use, and wifi throughout the villa, ideal for the teenagers Internet addiction.

The drivers carried our luggage into our rooms for us- throughout our whole stay they were extremely helpful. They were happy to answer any questions and to book different things for our teenagers to do.

Our boys became very fond of the omelette's at breakfast and the staff catered for their fussy eating requirements. The free dinner was wonderful and we paid abit extra to have 3 more dishes served with 4 teenagers you can never have enough food.

Thanks to Nell's Tip " You have to pay 20,000 rupiah each adult to the local police and a photocopy of your passport is given as well when you stay in this area. " We had a copy of our passports ready so this was easy,

The view of the rice Paddie's are just amazing. There are also alot of birds that are very entertaining to watch and wonderful to listen to. All in all we had a wonderful stay here and will be recommending this villa to our family and friends.

Nice place. We stayed for 3 weeks in the summer of 2010. The location looks good on map, but traffic and condition of roads makes the trip to more urban areas a long and tedious one. You have a private driver, we were lucky to have a very talented and friendly guy (putu Oka) who also acted as our guide, translator and babysitter.
Daily cleaning, washing up and on demand cooking by pleasant and friendly housestaff with some knowledge of English. The boss, Mia, was a bit too enthusiastic for our taste, so we avoided contact with her.
The cooking at the villa was ok, but nothing extravagant. I strongly recommend the nereby restaurants Omak cafe (pererennan 10 min drive) with real good quality and delicious Indonesian food or The beach house at Echo beach with good food at reasonable prices(home delivery possible from both).

The nearby beach Cemagi (500m walk) is nice and desolete, apart from locals who like to go fishing and the mandatory surfers. We saw an indian man who looked like Ghandi doing Yoga and playing for himself in the waves wearing nothing but a pair of y-fronts!
There is also a temple set on a cliff in the water, wich You acess by a small bridge. The sunset there is really beautiful, with large waves dramatically smashing against a set of black stone formations, worth a visit and only 5 minute walk from the villa.

If You are looking for party, go elsewhere. If a quiet vacation in beautiful surroundings with lots of service is what You´re after, then this is it!

I went with 8 of my other friends and the place are exactly as the photos present it. The rooms and accomodation was amazing. We had our own private pool and our own driver which we became really good friends with by the end of the trip! The service was excellent.

The only bad thing is that it isn't in the main city area so if you wanted to go shopping or enjoy the nightlife you would have to get your driver to take you there and although it might be 5-10 mins away, it seemed longer because of the bad condition of the roads and scooters everywhere.

If you wanted a relaxing holiday, I would highly recommend this place!

My family of 3 stayed at Villa Padi in January. We had villa "C", whilst friends rented out villa "B". After the initial mix up of no pick-up from our first hotel in Bali (which the staff were very sorry about) we could relax and take in the surroundings of Villa Padi. It is located right in the rice paddy fields ,which was very relaxing to look out over while we were swimming in our own private pool. There is nothing else around these villas so if you want hustle and bustle don't stay here.
The villa was good value for money, as we had a lot of inclusions. We especially liked our own lap pool and being able to use it when we wanted too. There were many late night swims. I think that villa "B" was probably nicer furnished than ours. Our seven year old son slept upstairs with us ( the sitting room contained 2 small folder beds). The downstairs bedroom was very small and it seemed too far away at night in case he needed us. The villa was able to be closed and locked at night.
The villas are a one hour car's ride to Kuta, but you do have a driver and car included in the price. You have to pay 20,000 rupiah each adult to the local police and a photocopy of your passport is given as well when you stay in this area. The only problem was the power cuts which happened two nights out of seven while we were there. There is no water either when the power goes out. At least the second power cut was only an hour long. The food wasn't too bad (we tended to eat Indonesian). The staff could do with some training but we had come from the Hyatt in Sanur so we were spoilt with the service we received there. We ate at the villa all but the first night. We went to Echo Beach for dinner and if you like eating with lots of stray dogs, go for it! Wasn't our cup of tea. So much more peaceful having dinner at the villa. The flies during the day (especially at breakfast) were crazy. I thought we had fly problems here in Australia! If you want somewhere quiet and relaxing and to see the real Bali this is a villa for you. I wouldn't recommend it if you like the nightlife and constant shopping.

We stayed at Villa Padi (A)in November with my son and his wife and 3 children. The two downstairs rooms are very large with king size beds, day beds with huge bathrooms and outdoor shower. Upstairs is a big suite with sitting room, king size bed and large ensuite. The pool is big and very clean. The staff are very friendly and only too happy to help. The driver was great and happy to drop and pick us up from our many shopping trips. Food was excellent and very fresh. We will stay at Villa Padi again felt like royalty.
Keep up the good work Aimee
