We stayed at Ayung for 7 nights in the amazing villa Wibisana and absolutely loved everything. A big thank you to all the staff of the resort, the service was very warm and efficient. Quite a few people knew us by our names which was really sweet. Food quality in the restaurant was superb, starting from a la carte breakfast menu with a selection of freshly squeezed juices and a vast array of breakfast options and fruits. We were so full every day, but just could not resist to finish off with a nice cup of coffee and a bakery basket (all baked on premises and still warm when served, yum!). Dinner was always a fine dining experience. We especially enjoyed the duck breast with gnocchi, the wagyu sirloin and all of the amazing salads they have. Cocktails were also quite impressive, so was the wine list.
But the best thing was definitely our villa (comes with a huge lounge room with a dining area and your own pool overlooking the rainforest! It was very spacious and impressively constructed with wooden carvings all around and marble finishes. There were plenty of fans and air-conditioners to accommodate any preference. The bathroom was very large and comfortable and had an amazing view, so if you choose to take a bath, it is truly an unforgettable experience.
A balcony wraps around the whole villa so you have unlimited panoramic views of the rainforest and rice fields and even Ayung river. If you are keen on yoga, there is a beginners class every morning at 7.30, otherwise you may prefer to do your own practice on the balcony in the most tranquil setting you can imagine. I really could stay there forever!
Missing it already!
Thank you for the most amazing and relaxing holiday, Ayung!
