I booked Saba 10 for 4 nights after reading reviews. Would have stayed longer if there was availabality. Before I arrived I had organised a dinner party and Liquor with the help of one the owners. My birthday celebration was amazing and no request was too hard. The staff at the villa are truly amazing . Ketut definetly can cook a sumptious indonesian feast . We requested lunch one day and were suprised by her amazing meal at a minimul cost. We all said we could have stayed in everyday and eaten Ketuts food.
We also had transfers, massages and yoga pre organised proir too arrival.
The villa itself is fantastic. Spacious rooms with great aircon. The pool was big enough for laps and enough sun and shade to please everyone.
A really nice touch was the mobile phone left for our use. We could call for taxis, massages or take out. Ketuts husband is also available as a driver and his car seated 6 of us so we didnt have to get 2 taxis.
The Nook up the road is a great cafe/ restaurant as is the coffee shop across the road.
The villa is in a great area. 5 mins from Eat st but feels like you are in an oasis.
Loved the proximity to Batu Belig which has some great restauarnts and cool beach bar for sunset, Batu Belig 707.
Overall the staff and Villa were loved by all 7 guests who are all keen to return.
Great space for your holidays! Had a fantastic time with friends. Open living room, and many other places in the villa is useful. Amazing staff! Was a very nice holiday!! Thanks!

Stayed here for 4-5 nights and the place is amazing - the architecture and design impeccable - the hospitality is second to none. This place has just been designed for relaxing - it's like time stands still. I was going to ask for a few requests but would wake up and they were already done! It was seamless! Jess and his team are always on the front foot and couldn't have done any more! Close to everything and easily accessible. Suitable for adults or families with children. Only problem is I can't get back there quick enough! Would recommend to anyone. 10 out of 10!
Loved this villa!. Our friends and I have stayed at a few villas in Bali so we know what makes a good villa and overall experience. But this team have really made something special. Living areas and rooms are incredible but the 2nd story loft was the best. Overlooking the rice paddies, having a bottle of wine and diner delivered to our private eating area was exceptional. Couldn't recommend highly enough!
everything thought of that you could possibly need, want, do. Pool and surrounds lovely.
For a villa stay, very pleasant.
Girls who cook breakfast stay till the afternoon. They will buy food locally for cost and cook what you like. Ketut makes wonderful satays! Means the day can just be spent relaxing.

Ok, so Josie and Steve - reviewers below - are my friends and I stayed with them at Villa Saba 10 for Jo's Birthday. I too have just read the previous reviews that say their experience was 'poor' - which I also can't understand!
So here's my view ... I live in Singapore - and I've had the lucky privilege of visiting Bali over 6 times! ... Along with many other exquisite places in South East Asia! Let me just say that this villa is an absolute dream! ... And I believe I say that with a qualified perspective of what else is out there given my time in Asia (and I'm a snob and don't slum it! Ha Ha!)
I was bowled over by many things! The fully stocked fridge they'd organised for our arrival, the actual villa itself as well as the exceptional personal service!
It has 4 lush rooms. A massive upstairs one, with a superb chill out area. Rice paddies in view (don't be fooled by that comment though - you're still only 5-10 mins from potato head, KDT, motel Mexicola etc). Then another separate room that I had - it was huge and the bed fabulously comfortable, sheets smelt wonderful! (that sounds weird, I'm not! ... But they were a joy to sniff!) Then two other lovely rooms with a massive shared bathroom that's actually quite private and screened off - so didn't feel shared as such.
The pool is out of this world! Enormous! Plus there were lilo's! Call me a kid but nothing beats trying to hoist yourself on a lilo and then lazing for an hour or two floating around! And theres plenty of room to float! There's a superb sound system - you can plug your tunes in and chill by day or ... As we did a few times, party by night!
Now for the staff! As above, I've stayed in many villas ... And am used to the usually outstanding Asian service - but these guys were fantastic. Knew our names, chatted to us, did our washing, marvellously clean rooms, bought us all incense sticks from the local market as we we were obsessed with the smells (mmm smells again - really im not wierd!), cooked wonderful breakfasts, did us a wonderful evening meal once ...truly delicious and so cheap! All we had to do was pay for their time and the food itself! They were invisible all evening as they cooked and cleaned around us. Truly fab. Then Fibri! She came every morning to check in on us! So lovely ... Chatted to us and organised everything from trips to the temples and tegalalang, ubud, uluwatu etc ... Above and beyond! I'm still in touch with her now! Then there's Jessie! The owner! I've never seen someone so involved and helpful with our trip - whilst I didn't directly speak to him, he was in constant contact with Josie! I was amazed at how helpful he was - an absolute star!
All in all guys ... This villa and all the staff are exceptional. I have a big birthday looming early next year ... And I'm changing my plans from San Fran to hopefully come here instead ... This speaks volumes about the experience! (and of course Bali itself! Love ... Barbacoa, La Favela, KuDeTa!) ... So 10/10 to Villa Saba 10!
I will be back! No, really I will! :-)
