Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Villa Gading who made our short stay very memorable. Amazing food, fab snorkelling, great pool. Attentive, helpful staff who took interest and played with our children. Wish we had stayed longer then 3 nights, breath of fresh air getting away from busy busy parts of Bali.

I've visited Bali many times over 30+ years, each time it gets busier, East Bali is like the old Bali, full of culture, happiness and no pushy sellers. Villa Gading is the most wonderful pocket of paradise on the bay at Balina Beach. Two Balinese style 2 storey beach houses overlook tropical gardens, the pool and the bay. Gading and... More

Staying at Villa Gading was to be our special treat in Indonesia and it certainly was. All expectations were met. And then some! Peaceful, welcoming, friendly. We relaxed, felt at home and had the best time. We never thought we'd be able to experience such a type of stay: having the whole place to ourselves with excellent & friendly service... More

We came to Villa Gading on a recommendation from a work colleague. From the moment Gading picked us up at the airport to the moment we left the whole extended family made us feel relaxed and welcome. This is our first trip to Bali and totally different from the sordid stories we often hear back in Australia. What a perfect... More

Our family of 5 including kids aged 5, 2 and 2 loved every minute at Villa Gading. The place itself is stunning, perched above the beach with a beautiful pool and you felt a million miles from the rest of the world. We could not believe we had it all to ourselves! Gading's family took great care of us, including... More

We stayed at Villa Gading for one week in February 2013 based on a work colleague's recommendation and found the villa to be everything we expected, and more. It's in a beautiful, quiet setting and we had exclusive use of all the facilities. The staff were very friendly and extremely attentive without being intrusive. Nothing was ever too much trouble....

Our young family (4 month old and 2 year old, and mum and dad) had a wonderful stay at this quiet, but beautiful villa. We had the whole place to ourselves, and the staff were attentive, but not intrusive. The food was great - we ate in for most meals, and had a lovely feast on Christmas Day. Our 2... More
