“The Perfect Chill Out Place - visit June 2012”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

We were recommended Villa Glading by a friend and were not disappointed. We had the garden and pool to ourselves, the food was excellent so did not venture to Candidasa to try restaurants there. The weather was warm in the day, but nice cool evenings. Wifi was good. We did walk into the town, but much easier by taxi as the roads are very busy. If you like scuba diving take a trip to Tulamben to dive the corals and the wreck from Mata Hari dive centre right on the beach. Would go back tomorrow, it is such a nice place and made even better by the family who run it. They look after you very well.

Room Tip: Room facing the sea was great

With the hectic lives we have and high maintainence jobs, Villa Gading was exactly the break we needed
If you are looking for a break where you can leave all your worries and cares behind, then look no further than villa Gading
5 minutes by car/ bemo to candi dasa if you need a shopping fix and the quality of products is wonderful without the stress and haggling of kuta
The quality of food was outstanding and every meal was more amazing than the last
The family looked after us so well that we are already planning a return visit
Day trips showed us some amazing parts of Bali and our guide/driver was most knowledgable and patient with all of our questions
We feel truly blessed to have found this little slice of heaven

I have been visiting Villa Gading with my wife and 9 years old son. We were totally blown out by the quiet and friendly atmosphere at Villa Gading.
It is run by a local family with friendly staff that has definitely above the average culinary skills. After testing out nearby restaurants in Candidasa, we simply preferred Villa Gading food.
The compound is small and cozy with no disturbances nearby. It is the ideal hideout for families, couples, or individuals seeking for a calm quietude.
There is a lot of opportunity to enjoy the local beach as well as touring the island. The family is always helpful with any arrangements you may require, be it a driver for an island tour, a boatman, snorkeling equipment, or the coconut from the tree next to your shoulder.
Bottom line: I can't imagine finding a more agreeable place in Bali. If we'll return, it will definitely be to stay in Villa Gading.

My family and I celebrated my 50th birthday in Bali at Villa Gading in December which included Christmas Day 2011. The holiday could not have been more enjoyable. The facilities could not have been more perfect and the staff at the resort were sublime and took care of all of our needs. My family which includes two teenage boys had the best holiday we have ever had. The resort was perfetly placed so that doing shopping was very convenient as was snorkelling, fishing ad swimming. I would recommend this resort to anyone. It was absolutely brilliant!

Villa Gading was perfect for our family. We were blown away by the Balinese style villas (only 2), because you knew you were in Bali! The ocean view from the pool and dining area was out of a post card and the food was to die for, being prepared by the owners family members.
You are away from the crowds here but can easily take a day trip if you feel like it. Local shopping is fine and we even had a massage arranged before our dinner each night by the pool.
We were made to feel at home - an unusual mix of luxury in bathers or shorts, at a reasonable price.
We are going back this year, and taking some friends as well as family.

Room Tip: Take both villas and you have the whole place to yourself. The stairs to the bedroom are a bit stee...

We have been back to Villa Gading on 5 occasions after our first visit 10 years ago. Whether with family, friends or as a couple we love the peace & tranquility of VIlla Gading. Many of our friends have been to VG & they all love it.
The local Balinese staff from the nearby village make sure you are spoiled throughout your stay at your own piece of paradise.
Depending on our mood of the day we loved walking through the rice fields & local villages, strolling into the local town of Candi Dasa (pronounced Chandi Dasa), swimming, snorkeling, fishing or just relaxing with a good book by the private pool overlooking the ocean.
We prefer to eat at the villa where an amazing selection of Balinese, Indonesian & International cuisine is available. There are a number of quality restaurants in the area.
Nonok your driver is available for day tours to Ubud etc at very reasonable rates.
We just love the place & will definitely be going back for a cold Bintang by the pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Villa Gading is located right on beautiful Balina Beach, within 5 minutes of Candi Dasa and Padang Bai. We have only two villas, or “lumbungs” based on the style of a Balinese rice barn. However the fittings are of the highest standard, with essential extras such as a mini bar, CD/radio, hair dryer, etc. Each villa consist of a bedroom with king size bed upstairs, and downstairs there are two day beds that can convert to single beds at night. The bathroom is partially indoors, partially outdoors, a blend of sparkling white tiles and traditional Balinese carving and ferns.Villa Gading is ideally set up for 1 or 2 couples or families and is a place where our guests can relax and treat our place as their home in Bali. There is no need to fight to get the best lounge by the pool, or be just one of a hundred guests. ... more   less
