My 3 other girlfriends and I were really looking forward to our trip to Bali just recently. After seeing what was published on Villa D'jabu's official website, we were convinced that the 2-bedroom villa with private swimming pool would enable us the ultimate relaxation holiday with the chance to lounge by the poolside and spa for most of our stay there.
Unfortunately, when we arrived at the villa, we were quite surprised with what we saw. It was a far cry from what was represented on the website. Firstly, the place was infested by flies - Our welcome drinks became a pool of flies just minutes after there were served. The walls surrounding the villa really looked like it needed a major coat of paint. The day bed by the poolside (refer to attached photo) didn't look very clean and it really didn't look too inviting to spend our next few days lounging on it.
Although we expected skylight shower facilities (as described in the website), we didn't expect it to be so badly stained with rain water and moss -- the walls of the bathroom, toilet bowls and tub had a blackish stain. (Refer to attached photos) Needless to say, my girlfriends freaked out. So did I.
Natan Hospitality, our agent was very accommodating after I called them to explain that Villa D'jabu really wasn't up to our expectations. Within 2 hours, they found us an alternate villa - A beautiful 3-bedroom villa within the Seminyak area as well. We moved there immediately.
I hope the owner of Villa D'jabu will put some thought into refurbishing the place soon. Its location by the paddy field really does provide a sense of serenity. As such, with a major overhaul, this place would really be a gem!
