We found out about Heliconia through Google and made an online booking. Received an acknowledgement email soon thereafter.
We were picked up from the airport but because of the horrible traffic, it took us about 1 hour to reach the villa. I was pleasantly surprised when the driver turned from the busy Seminyak road into a quiet enclave with beautiful and lush greenery.
The service is top notch and the staff is sincere in their efforts to make you enjoy your holiday. Check-in was fuss-free and we headed to our villa. Although the furniture seemed a bit old and dated, we had all the amenities we needed to stay in and avoid the hustle and bustle of the road outside(you really can't hear the cacophony from outside the villa!). Breakfast is served in your room and their selection is quite varied and tasty - try the nasi goreng.
We also borrowed DVDs from the reception and ordered in-villa massages.
All in all, the location can't be any more perfect, the service from the staff is impeccable, the ambience and surrounding area is everything you'd want for the perfect relaxing holiday but yet near enough 'civilization'.
The very minor downsides are the pretty old and dated furniture and the buzzing mosquitoes.More
