Quite possibly one of the nicest villa's my parter and I have stayed in, not just in Bali but anywhere. We found the staff helpful and respectful of privacy when we last stayed there, and we really felt like we were just hanging out at home... The insect/mosquito spraying wasn't all that pleasant when the pool area and gardens were... More

I stayed here with my family for my fathers 60th last week and didn't find many floors. If you wanted something(restaurant booking, taxi, car service) it was a phone call to reception away. We needed a doctor one night and they where at our door in 20mins from calling reception. The free shuttle service was great to get to Seminyak... More

Before I begin what will be a very positive, glowing review of the Layar, I think an alternative view of Jim M's review is needed. We had the unfortunate 'pleasure' of staying in the villa directly opposite Jim M's. The first night they arrived, we had to walk in to their villa late at night, to ask that they turn... More

Fogged the whole place so dense you could not see 1 foot in front of your face... They did this while we were taking day naps. They did not bother to check and see if anyone was in... More
