This place is perfection! I never write reviews but this place deserves it. The estate is so beautiful, and its beauty isn't captured in the photos. It's quiet and a perfect place to chill out by yourself or with a friend/ partner. The food is amazing, within the wellness package you're provided with 3 course meals at lunch and dinner,... More

I am currently in residence for my 3rd visit to The Estate; it is truly perfection. Starting with the airport greeter all the way down the line to groundskeepers, everyone has a smile and warm hello. This is the place if you are looking to reconnect with nature, spirit, peace and tranquility; it is like no other.

This was a wonderful place to stay - great and healthy food, extreme privacy; wonderful, friendly, and professional staff; Seamless efficiency of service and special planning; restfulness; accessible and wonderful culture. The best thing about this place though was the intrinsic and breathtaking beauty. I loved it and I will go back!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this was a pleasure. It's such a peaceful romantic getaway for your mind, body and spirit. My wife and I spent our 10th anniversary in Bali and stayed here only two nights out of our stay. What a mistake. You need more time there. It really is a special place... More

However, we sensed that you have done well in exploring what The Estate has to offer in terms of its services, peaceful surroundings and the pure Balinese grace.

This place is magical. Really magical. Those "once in a lifetime" places that should be on your "I have to go here before I die" list. It's so unique and wonderful, you have to see it to believe it, the photos on the website don't begin to capture what it's like to stay here. Since arriving home, I have convinced... More

I want to start this review by explaining that my husband and I stayed in a two bedroom retreat villa, which enjoys it's own four walls - entirely cut off from the quad-concept. I thought long and hard about whether that was a necessity for our trip, and I am glad that I splurged for the privacy. We had our... More
