“As if I were staying in my own place!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 via mobile

I spent 3 days there and everything was just perfect. The place is far away from the crowded Kuta area and you could see the real Bali. I did have a very relaxing and pleasant stay. One more point to add: they have got a really good chef. I enjoyed every single dish I had there!

A friendly couple with kids are warmly welcoming you to their fantastic place. Organic food, amazing massage, very good yoga teacher. A very good set up for this villa from which you have fantastic surroundings. We went for a long walk that took us through the rice fields and the water palace at Tritagangga with a very friendly guide. We felt in love with the area and the water palace at Ujung is definitely worth to visit. I would recommend it over the one in Tritagangga.
The couple who runs the villa are very inspiring and are totally involved in the local community development. If you go to the Villa not only you will spend an amazing time but you'll also indirectly benefit to the local people as part of the villa fees are given to the local schools.
One of the only little negative point is probably the fact that there is no door separating the bathroom/toilet from the bedroom.
Overall, we fully enjoyed our few days there.

Refreshing place after staying in Seminyak for the first couple of days. For those who planning to only do Ubud and Seminyak, get East Bali / Villa Flow on the schedule. It’s quite a distance to get there (2hrs from Seminyak), and there are no signs (the owners are not looking for walk-in guests), so depending on your driver it could take you a while to get there, but once there you will not regret it! Great food, friendly staff, wonderful views and helpful owners.Highly recommended.

We are a Swiss couple and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Flow in December 2011. Seraya is a wonderful place located in East Bali.

The Villa is located in a very beautiful and quiet setting overlooking the sea; ideal for people who would like to get away from it all.
The infinity pool is amazing and the exotic garden is lush and very well maintained. The villas are new and facilities modern. Food is prepared from the fresh produce of the gardens.

Inge and Serge are very welcoming and nice Dutch expats. The staff is friendly and always helpful. The villa is very intimate and a great place to experience authentic Indonesian hospitality.

Despite being located off the beaten path you can organize great activities in a number of nearby locations such as diving and snorkelling in Ahmed and Tulamben; the fantastic white beach, the water castle at Tirtaganga (we took a great rice field walk there) and Candidasa.
Don't miss the massage sessions on spot by an authentic local healer.
Inge and Serge can help for organizing all these trips and activities at very reasonable prizes. The driver Wayan is extremely friendly and reliable; we had great fun with him.

We will certainly stop in Seraya again on our next visit to Bali.

"Located smack in the middle of a very small village, there is not much to do in terms of bars and dining. So don’t go to Seraya for cocktails and steak because you won’t find it. You will find though a really good healthy menu. All fresh, organic, and a lot from the villa’s own gardens. The staff are very friendly, and are there to please. The swimming pool is a great place to relax and the villa offers the best massages. Enough cultural and interesting trips to do in the area. Great place for a 4-5 day trip for those who want to see the more authentic side of Bali!"

Our stay at the Villa flow was excellent. The first thing you notice is how beautiful the compound is. Lots of green that is taken care of every day by the gardeners. The second thing we immidiately noticed was how clean and new everything looks. We stayed in the Coconut House and it was very pleasant and it had a very nice view on the garden, green coastline and sea.
One of the best things at Villa Flow was the food. A wide variety of very healthy meals which tasted delicious. Everyday there were new things on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn´t know that the healthy food could taste so good. A lot of it comes straight from their own garden where they grow spices and vegetables.
The staff were very polite and friendly and the quality of services was very good.
We will definitely visit Villa Flow again in the future and can recommand it to others.

Room Tip: Choose the Coconut House!

My girlfriend and I stayed in Villa Flow for 3 nights in early November '11 and we loved this "hidden gem" in East Bali. Highest on the list was the healthy natural food, especially the daily-changing breakfast - all fresh, tasty and organic with many ingredients from the Villa's own garden (owner Serge is happy to take guests on a garden tour and explain everything about the fruits and vegetables in the garden!). If ever we could have this at home... We also liked the beautiful sea views, the massages, the private beachfront land close-by for a perfect sunset, the "room with a view" as well as the upper floor of the Coconut House - very romantic (we tried both), the rice field trekking followed by a fantastic Balinese lunch (restaurant Bali Asli) with the most spectacular view you can imagine, etc. Thanks to Serge, Inge and the rest of the family and the friendly crew for a wonderful and authentic Balinese experience, we'll be back!
