The Cove was exactly what we had hoped to find in Bali, and lived up to our high expectations. The location is absolutely perfect, far away from the the touristy places where you can experience your own secluded paradise.The home had the luxuries of a private infinity pool overlooking the private beach, an awesome huge movie projector with a huge movie selection, multiple lounge areas, and many other features to ensure a comfortable stay. In addition, from the villa there is plenty to do nearby, such as visiting a waterfall, or the uncrowded and magnificent rice terraces. There are also a few small bars and restaurants nearby, some temples, spiritual healer, bat cave, and other beaches all close by. We found the perfect balance of exploring the area, and relaxing at the villa. We spent the mornings venturing out, then enjoyed the pool overlooking the beach, explored the beach, had massages daily at the house in the afternoon. The massages were a real treat and some of the best we had the entire trip.
We ate at the villa for most all of our meals, because the chef is amazing and the food was exceptional. Breakfast, lunch, and the special dinners were all wonderful, plentiful, and reasonably priced. The views from the villa are far better then most restaurants, so there is not reason to leave, but don't worry you will not feel isolated. I recall being a little concerned about getting bored or feeling isolated while here, since it is in a more rural area, trust me, that will not be the case.
Furthermore, The Cove assisted my husband in creating an unparalleled anniversary celebration. For our anniversary, an entire local band, dancers, and performers, nearly 20 people came to perform for us. It was unreal, and very special. The music, the dancers, performing during sunset with the ocean view behind them, was super. The night was so incredible and special. Literally, we had an entire show, followed by a four course lobster dinner, for our small group of 4. We were spoiled with flowers, that my husband had arranged, yet they ensured were outstanding. Following the perfect meal, in a beautiful setting, the chef treated us to a homemade rum cake, it was just perfect! Both my husband and I, as well as the other couple who traveled with us, loved the evening so much, we actually booked the celebration for a second night. The next night they prepared a huge fresh fish, in place of the lobster, and we had another awesome meal.
The owner was outstanding to work with prior to arrival, and orchestrated all of our special request perfectly, and went far and above the standard of service. She provided ideas to make our anniversary celebrations special and gave ideas of things to do in the area. The staff was also great to work with while there helping to drive us wherever and arrange excursions. The manager, the chef, the driver, and the others who assisted for special events were just wonderful and made the stay very special, one that we will never forget.
The villa, the staff, the location, the amazing infinity pool, the beach are all amazing! I would, and hopefully will, come back n a heartbeat. In fact, we already are sending friends in January.
I would recommend this property very highly, especially for a special occasion, as Rosella and the on-site amazing staff will literally bring your dreams to fruition. Our group of four loved The Cove. Do not be discouraged if you are a smaller group, as it was awesome having all the space and service for a smaller group. On the other hand, if you have a large group, there is ample space.Thanks again to the entire Cove family, see you next time. Happy travels!
The fact that there's a private little beach and a cove gives this place a magical character. Spend time here with a group of friends or your family and you won't regret it! It's a great place to let the good times roll. There's something for everybody, you don't need to leave this residence. Luxury meets activities! The food is out of this world! Hands down best cook in Bali!
Beautiful rice fields are just behind it. The house is surrounded by trees and forest, so privacy is a given. Also, there's a tennis court... amazing.
Genuinely couldn't fault our stay at the cove, the food was fairly priced and absolutely outstanding, all staff so catering and the villa itself was like something out of a movie- would highly reccomend and can't wait to go back !
Spent 3 nights at this beautiful piece of earth, very modern facilities, clean, the staff prepared the most amazing food and was incredibly helpful with everything. Def worth a stay!!! Will def come back!
The location is so prime. Only an hour outside of the hustle and bustle of kuta but far enough to get that sense of remote-ness. The cook was insane! The food was delicious and the staff were barely noticeable, but kept the villa and the grounds surrounding clean all the time. There is a beautiful grass tennis court with a small pavilion and a beach side pool which was perfect for watching the sunset! All round super experience, couldn't recommend more...
This is an incredible home staffed with very accommodating and kind people. The owner, Rossella was so helpful to me during the pre-trip process, and went above and beyond in explaining various details to support our large group of travelers. Once in Bali, her staff was on the ball, from airport pick up to having the pre-arranged refreshments, massages, and then dinner ready for our party upon arrival. There was no request that went unheard. The home is well appointed with every room facing the ocean. The grounds are well maintained, and the pool perfect!! But the best thing about our trip were the family style breakfast and dinners that our chef prepared for us each day. We had the choice of going out or staying in, and most nights we decided to have our beautiful NI Wayan take care of our food. In return the staff had to deal with our constant thank you's and bowing and hugs. We left feeling so grateful and happy that we had chosen the Cove for our adventure. Blessings.
My wife and I were married at The Cove this June passed, and it exceeded our wildest expectations as a venue. The house and the grounds are immaculate, with the pool area being particularly stunning. The chef, Ibu Wayan, is superb and made sure that we never went hungry, or thirsty, and the food was top notch.
The owner, Rossella, was a joy to deal with; flexible, accommodating, and very helpful.
We spent a full week at The Cove, and it was one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had, despite the fact that our wedding was bearing down on us! I would highly recommend The Cove. If I could give a rating higher than 5, I most certainly would.
