“Super flow at this stylish retreat”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

What a joy to spend 5 days at Villa Flow: beautiful setting, perched on the hillside, elegant, fully equipped and beautifully decorated rooms, fantastic and attentive staff, very tasteful and yummy fusion food... Need I say more in superlatives?? Should you decide to go here, do take the hike through the rice paddies, followed by lunch at the Bali Asli restaurant. And don't forget to take a walk in the Villa's own fruit, flower and vegetable garden: all organic and very well set up.
The owners support several local projects with the revenues they make and the staff is local too and extremely well-trained for a 5* experience.
One warning, well, maybe two: if you are looking for party time or extensive beaches don't go. There is a very nice white sand beach 15 minutes drive from the hotel, but you need a driver or a scooter. And the other warning: once you get settled (not at all difficult!), you may not want to leave...

We stayed at Villa Flow in early December for three nights and could not fault it. Mostly we swam in the gorgeous pool and enjoyed the relaxed ambiance but one of us did borrow the bicycle on offer and explored the local area which was fun. The food was beautifully presented and the rooms tastefully decorated. The staff were delightful and Kirstin was so helpful in answering our numerous questions about Bali. Their philosophy of supporting local community projects was another plus for us. A tour of their garden is interesting for those not used to gardening in a similar climate and we saw coffee and all number of interesting fruit and veg growing. Close by are two amazing water palaces to visit and we also enjoyed the short stroll to Villa Flows private beach in the evening, would love to return.

A wonderful place to escape the tourist traps. Its great to get away from the hustle and bustle of other parts of Bali and Villa flow is it's own little piece of paradise in an authentic Balinese region. Friendly, helpful staff ensure you have a wonderful experience. You can do as much or as little as you like and they will organise everything for you. Of course everyone mentions the food - it's delicious! Make sure you tour the garden with one of the gardeners. You will definitely enjoy your stay here.

Villa Flow is an amazingly, beautiful place, not only because of the area, the location, but also because of the food and the staff. Everything has so well been taken care of. The food is delicious and healthy (almost everything is from the own garden), not many places achieve in doing that. The staff is so friendly and they really understand what the guest want. Also an absolute pro is the location so you can do many day trips and I can recommend the hiking tour through the rice fields, breathtaking!
I highly recommend to go here!

We had a marvelous stay at Villa Flow last weekend.
It's a beautiful place in a great area of Bali; quiet, peaceful and authentic.
If you are looking for a relaxing stay with great outdoor cycling and hiking options in Bali like it used to be,
And if you enjoy healthy delicious food,
This is your place to go!

With a driver you can also explore other parts like Ubud or Seminyak, but we were happy to get back to Flow after the ride!

Room Tip: Only six rooms, all fine!

This was the first time I traveled to Bali. Well, unfortunately the trip is not meant for leisure travel as it was a business trip. Nevertheless, thanks to Villa Flow for making this trip memorable. You will find complete peace there as it was surrounded by gardens, plants and trees. There are lots more, but they are too beautiful fill in the margin here. You must experience yourself rather than just listening. If you have a chance, Villa Flow is a great place to visit.
