Was incredible impressed with the Villa! From the minute we walked in the staff were amazing and always there if we needed anything. All the bedrooms are amazing and extremely well kept. The pool, outdoor area, and bathrooms are fantastic, perfect for a big family or a larger group that also needs space. Really impressed overall, especially with the staff! Lovely people!
Very impressed with the service and standard of this villa. So private and relaxing!! Staff are super friendly and made our stay so much easier with advice on good restaurants and booking transport and activities for us. Highly recommend and would love to come back and stay again.
If you're looking for a slice of Heaven, you will find it at Villa Ipanema. it is exquisitely designed with the utmost sophistication. Every texture, space, accessory and detail are perfection. There isn't a miss in the entire picture. The villa is tucked in amongst other beautiful, high end villas off of a private road, just a very short walk to the beach. Off in the distance, inside of the villa, you can hear the rhythmic sounds of the giant waves hitting the shoreline. The peace and serenity you experience within Villa Ipanema belie the non stop action of Seminyak Village a short drive beyond its walls.
There are many amazing places to explore and wonderful experiences within reach, after which you are welcomed back by the most gracious and solicitous staff imaginable. Breakfast is served each morning at the time determined by yourselves. your every need is anticipated. You need a driver? It's arranged. You would like a facial and a massage at the villa? It's arranged. Dinner reservations at a fabulous restaurant...no problem. We cannot stress enough what a seamless and remarkable vacation our family enjoyed at the gorgeous Villa Ipanema. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Putu, Wayan, Iluh, Kadek and Apri for your most exceptional care of each one of us during our stay. We couldn't have wanted for a thing more.
Villa Ipanema is an impeccably designed, peaceful, and relaxing home away from home. I really hate to leave! It's a one-block walk to the awesome LaLaguna gypsy-themed restaurant, which is right on the beach and one of our favorite places to hang out. It's also about a 10-minute walk along the beach to the supercool Potato Head Beach Club or a short drive to the many shops in Seminyak. While in Bali, I also recommend seeing the Kecak Fire Dance at the Uluwatu Temple, the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Geger beach, and Sundays Beach Club.
But back to Ipanema: As gorgeous as the villa is, the best part is the staff. Putu, Wayan, Iluh, Kadek, Apri, and the security and gardening staff (whose names I didn't catch) are wonderful, lovely people. Their service is fantastic, and the breakfasts served daily are amazing. You'll feel a little bit like royalty staying at Villa Ipanema. I really hope we can come again sometime!
We had 3 couples with kids, so the villa size was perfect. Putu and her team do a great job with breakfast each morning and keeping the villa looking amazing at all times, and always happy to help with anything we needed. The villa itself is spectacular and one of the best we've stayed in. Rooms are enormous with a nice private feel to them and the communal space is great to relax around the pool. We missed having a bit of grass and open space somewhere. The lane it's in is nice and quiet and 2min walk to beach but it's a little tricky to walk to the shops because of the busy road - but definitely manageable. best way to get anywhere is walking along the beach. 20 min south to Seminyak and 20 min nth to Old Mans.
Perfect place to relax !!! We stayed 4 nights as group of 6 people and we were very impressed with this Villa. The beach is about a 2 minute walk and there is a mini supermarket 2 minutes in the other direction where you can get everything you need . We walked to some great restaurants nearby , and a taxi to nearby Seminyak takes around 15 minutes . We have never stayed in Canggu before but found it to be a wonderful area if you want to get away from the hustle and noise
The villa itself is superb , the photos do not do it justice!, and the staff are fantastic . They were able to organise us transport to Ubud at short notice and one night we opted to stay in the villa for dinner and the chef prepared an unforgettable Balinese meal for us , complete with suckling pig . The staff here and so friendly, always present if you need any thing, happy to accomodate any requests, yet don't intrude on your privacy
We would highly recommend Villa Ipanema and will definately consider staying again when we come back to Bali
The staff at Villa Ipanema, led by Puta and including Iluh, Wayan, and many others, are exceptionally welcoming, warm and professional. Their attention to detail, willingness to assist and pamper, delivery of spectacular breakfasts, smiles and conversations are second to none.
Villa Ipanema is luxurious, catering for large families/groups and located in a position convenient to Canggu's shops and restaurants. The pool and surrounds are inviting and perfect for joint gatherings of the group.
The bedrooms are large and well furnished, including day beds for young ones and large wardrobes to unpack those suitcases.
The only negative element to our stay was the issue surrounding our bathroom. Whilst it looked amazing, third world plumbing and a problem with drainage created an overwhelming odour (much much more so than usual Bali) that didn't dissipate over the course of our stay. Apparently this is to be fixed over the coming months.
With the bathroom problem remedied, I would highly recommend Villa Ipanema for large family groups.
Thank you Putu and staff for your fabulous hospitality!
