A friend living in Ubud recommended Turtle Bay to us, and from the moment we walked into our villa (Kelapa, the "honeymoon" villa) I knew we would love it. A gorgeous setting right on the ocean, absolutely beautiful, spacious, rustic, authentic villa with a private pool, set amongst gardens, rice terraces and stunning nature. Our entire bathroom was outdoors - shower, tub, sinks etc (toilet behind a privacy screen) - such a pleasure to wash up outside in the warm air while listening to the waves crashing. Although luxurious in its own way, it is still quite rustic. The waves crash pretty loud at night and although we had no trouble sleeping, our friends in the villa next door had their whole place rattling, which scared our 13 yr old god daughter. I would agree as they recommend on their website, this is more of an adult place, not for kids under 12. The food was all made to order, fresh, organic, and the staff was about as friendly and accommodating as you can imagine. The manager Made is great - so nice, helpful and easy. Also, they have an amazing masseuse named Tonno who we had come a few times for evening massage - what a great way to end the day! One thing to note is that while Turtle Bay is on the ocean, you can't really swim there and there's no beach to lay on - hence the private pools, patios and lawns. But White Sand beach is just a 10 min drive and they'll drop you there whenever you like.
