We put our money where our mouth is, and revisited Villa Wilsana 2 years after our first stay there.
I can't put into words our delight at being collected at Ngurah Rai airport by Made, we recognised his smile before we saw our name board. He was a favourite of our daughters two years ago, and it was nice that they sent a staff member to collect us even though it was 9.30pm.
Once again, we shared both Villas with our family group and stayed on in Villa 2 for a second week (two years ago we went and stayed in a lovely hotel in Nusa Dua for the second week and it felt like such a downer). The Villas are immaculate and huge so even though there were a heap of us, there was plenty of space for peace and quiet.
The thing that stands out at Wilsana though, is the staff, and this is more evident after our return visit. I have to admit that I do feel uncomfortable about so many people waiting on me hand and foot. Wages in Bali are low, and I would guess that the owners of Wilsana would really look after their team, however that feeling of discomfort can linger. However all the staff are so sweet and caring making sure you are having a good time. It is like they appreciate that you have worked hard for two years to save for a relaxing holiday (which is exactly what we did!).
The location is fabulous, Jalan Petitenget has really taken off in the Kerobokan direction so there is a lot more shopping and dining options.
Our kids loved the staff and loved the villa, and happy kids nag their parents less. Everyones a winner!
