A group of 4 couples rented the OMG Villa at Heavenly Residence for 9 days in September 2011. If you are considering the residence...book it now. The pictures and description are accurate. It is a truly spectacular Villa.
The villa has literally been carved out of a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean. The Villa is a few miles west of The Nikko and the The St. Regis Resorts. A large new hotel is also under construction in the area. When you reach the Villa (don't be concerned about the somewhat challenging road) you will be greeted at the Villa gated and security controlled. Entering the Villa complex you descend into the central core...my wife commented it is a little James Bond 007 looking setting...very cool. The OMG Villa is the last Villa on the road that spirals down the cliff. The Villa is primarily concrete due to the location literally hanging over the cliff and facing the sea.
The property has 4 bedrooms; the "romance" suite is on the lowest level and very private. The second bedroom is on the main level and has 2 beds. Upstairs are 2 Master Suites with large balconies. All the bedrooms have very large baths including outdoor showers or tubs. The Villa has an extensive patio with a large covered “bale” and an infinity pool that melts comfortably into the Indian Ocean view.
The service was truly outstanding, down to the night butler that was available just in case you needed something at 3 in the morning. The staff is special, lead by Yati, the Butler, Wahyu, the chef, Putu the cook and Sarah, Tiara and Warsiki in housekeeping. Somba was our driver. This is only a partial list of the outstanding staff. One hint...have Wahyu prepare the Chicken Parmigiana, and suckling pig, both are excellent.
Please consider rafting, biking, renting a yacht for a day of snorkeling, diving and fishing, Komodo diving, temple visits, and dinner on Jimbaran Beach at sunset. I will post reviews of all these activities and our tour guide where appropriate.
The Villa is very private and works well for a family or a group of adults. It is somewhat remote and the roads and traffic can be challenging if you want to visit other areas of the island. My recommendation is to stay at the Villa for a week or more and if you want to explore the rest of Bali relocate to the West Coast or possibly Ubud.
