Friends and me (4 Adults and 3 children) stayed at Villa Achara for 7 days in December. Too short as we soon discovered. The Villa is a unique and quiet resting place but very close to beaches and in near distance to all kind of restaurants and bars.
We had lovely staff looking after us. Whatever we needed was taken care of. From special food for the kids - the recommended banana pancakes were a hit - great breakfast including a large variety of fresh fruits and juices for all of us, authentic lunch if requested (superfood moringa was picked from the tree in the garden to be prepared for us in a traditional balinese way) up to organisation tasks as pick up from the airport or help in findig a scooter for rent.
Everybody in the house was very kind and ambitious to fulfil our needs.
We had 2 rooms on the ground and 1 on the upper floor. Each room had a terrace with old balinese furnitures such as a divan with cushions and blankets to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. As the Villa is newly built the rooms were modern and very clean with a charming balinese touch, achieved by using traditional wooden furnitures and interior. The spacious bathrooms are a must see!!! Each with 2 beautifully carved wash-bowls, a huge shower with aesthetic stone inlays and an open window covered by a curtain of plants. Amazing!
And the pool. Infinity pool of course. Despite you`re up on the hill you feel like swimming in the ocean. Also we were able to have a very good view on one of Bali’s stunning volcanos. We enjoyed to be at the house so much - we hardly left. But there are so many attractions around, like the nearby Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple and much much more. For this you will have to rent a scooter - which is a lot of fun - or a driver, as the house is a bit isolated. But honestly, coming from a very hectic every day life back home this was exactly what we were looking for.
Thank you so much Villa Achara for welcoming us so friendly and being a dream holiday home. We will soon plan our next trip and I hope we will have the possibility to stay with you again.
