“mixed feelings.....”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

We boooked our three days trip to Fare Tií already in September 2011, after reading 14 excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Booking went quickly and easy and we paid one night in advance. As most people do, we watched from time to time whether new reviews came up, but none sofar. A bit strange, and when we sent an email just with some questions, no reply at all....So, we became a bit suspicious and searched around for help with this in Canggu. Fortunately, Carmen, the very friendly owner of Kuda Bahagia (stables, where our daughters had ponycamp during our stay in Canggu) wanted to help us, and went to this place to find out what was going on. It seemed that the place was under renovation and a new management was taking over the place. She gave me the new phone number and email address so I could contact them. First they were not aware of my booking, which frightened me of course, but later on they confirmed by booking and also my prepayment.
I posted a post on TA to ask if there were other people with the same problem and some people contacted me.
So, we went there in July, two days before our reservation date, as we came earlier from Java than plannend. No one there, it looked very empty, really strange. We booked elsewhere for the next two nights and went there again on our normal date of arrival.
Only a secrity man was there, our villa (Kamboja) was very clean, but all other villas where not occupied, and the resort had a very lonely feeling. We had our own rental car, so we found our way in Canggu and surroundings anyway. But if people come to Bali for the first time, this will be a weird experience, nobody at the reception or at the bar. On the website they should people making cocktails near the people, but in reality you see nobody during the day. The man who made our breakfast was friendly and tried to speak some English, but he was only there for one hour. Ketut, the new daily manager, was never there. We booked an airport transfert, we as we never saw anyone, we accepted the airport return from our car rental company. Later on, on the very last moment, Ketut arrived to collect the balancing amount of our stay. It is really a pity of this service, the place has real potential.
The garden is nice with a lovely pool and sunchairs, Kamboja villa was really nice and clean, with as downside the very very small beds (1.40m for two persons).
We hope this resort improves the service to the guest (like welcome drink, attention, reception service etc).

Room Tip: Kamboja room has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, beds are very very small

My boyfriend and I are regulars at Fare Ti'i. The villa is beautiful and quiet, tucked in a lush green garden among singing birds and ethnic decor, surrounded by rice fields and friendly locals. It is a 10 minute walk from the beach or 4 minute bicycle ride. You can borrow bicycles from the villa to explore the area. The friendly and ever helpful staff make our trips extra special, always accommodating to our needs (even in absurd hours of the night!). This is the place to stay if you plan on vacationing in the Canggu area!

The first week at Bali we were in the fare ti i villa.Very pleasant, clean villa with nice personnel and with Indonesian antique.
The garden is nice with a pleasant pool. Nicely located, close to Echo Beach, a great surfing spot with many restaurants.

We were really happy with the intimacy of the grounds, there are only four villas making it a beautiful quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle. The villa we rented was clean, spacious, nicely presented and very reasonably priced. Overall we were thrilled with our stay.

This was absolutely the BEST place to stay. We were picked up from the airport by the lovely Wayan, and personally delivered to Fare Ti'i.
Gede, equally lovely, was there to greet us, and from that moment on we felt at home.
Four unique villas, each amazing in it's design, are separate enough for privacy but close enough to the tranquil pool and breakfast area.
A lovely breakfast was made each morning, accompanied by a huge smile, and fantastic juices.
Nothing was too much trouble, from laundry to transport, to information.
Big spacious, very clean villas, FareTi'i is a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Seminyak, yet close enough to the action, a short taxi ride away.
Fantastic surf, little warangs, and the beach are a 2 minute bike ride, or 5 minute walk away.
We loved this place and will be back.

I love staying at the wonderfully peaceful Villa Fare T’ii, with its 4 different villas, featuring awesome traditional Balinese and Javanese architecture and craftsmanship. Sitting by the pool in the huge, exotic garden, I’m a million miles from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian, or the new chic Petitenget in Seminyak but actually, it’s only 20-30 minutes away, depending on the time of day and traffic, to fabulous restaurants and shopping. Located on the west coast, just north of Canggu, there’s great surf, plus the village life and rice paddies.
Gede the Manager is invaluable - he has been so helpful every visit and his great staff make you feel so at home .
I also highly recommend the Driver, Wayan Agus, he’s a source of information and he can take you to places, on or off the beaten track, with a great Balinese sense of humour.

We had the pleasure if staying at Fare Ti'i for 2 weeks this past May. From making our reservations, to being dropped off at the airport upon departure, the staff could not have been more accommodating.
Wayan, the gentleman who picked us up at the airporacted used as a driver throughout the trip. He was knowledgable, a safe driver, and a very interesting, intelligent person. We left Bali happy to count him among our friends. The two
bedroom villa that we stayed in
was immaculate, featured a HUGE
bathroom, great little kitchen, and most importantly, heavy duty air-
conditioning. I'm already missing the breakfast that was prepared every morning - I only wish I had someone to serve me fresh juice, coffee and eggs to order everyday at home! The pool area is wonderful to lie out by, the bed-style lounges are perfect for napping. Convenient wi-fi, and a guest computer in the lobby made my trip stress free - I could check in at the office no problem. All the employees were wonderful - Terimah kasih for teaching us rudimentary Indonesian, and recommending great places to go! I can't wait for our next trip to Bali, and we'll definitely be staying at Fare Ti'i!
