Arama Riverside is located along the river and newly opened, which made the taxi driver so hard to find it. Its isolated location and small reception made me pretty worried, but as soon as we entered a 2 bedroom villa, it blowed my mind!! Rooms smelled so good, ballinese furnitures were beautiful, clean sheets and bathroom. Pool was really big... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa. Very spacious and modern. Pool was exceptionally clean and friendly staff. Only a short walk to legian shops. Great value for a villa in Legian. Taxi drivers find it hard to find but there is a pedestrian entrance off the main road.
