Booked 2 villas (amanara and santai) for the 14 of us. Without a doubt, it's been the best bali experience we have ever had ... by a million miles! Temple hill is a true gem!
The condition of the villas was wonderful. The pictures on the website were very good, but they are nothing as compared to the real thing! The moment I stepped foot in the villa, I literally didnt feel like going out at all! Rooms were clean & spacious, private pool was well-maintained and fairly big, practically the entire villa was HUGE. Breakfast was served on 2nd floor at the outdoor deck which had the most magnificent view! There was one small mix-up when we found that one of the aircon in the room was not cold. Fortunately the staff was attentive and it was fixed by night time.
The location of the villa is very accessible. It's very near to Uluwatu temple and Nusa Dua. There are many wellknown villas/resorts nearby like Bulgari, Karma, Four Seasons, etc, but at Temple Hill you only need to pay a fraction of the cost. :) From the 2nd floor of the villa you get a view of the beach. There's a fabulous Italian restaurant PEPeNero just next door. It's a must try! Good food at reasonable price (some may even find it inexpensive!). If you are heading back to the villa by taxi, just tell the driver 'Pepenero' ... based on my experience all drivers knew the location.
The service was super-ultimate-beyond-great-pamperingly-addictive it makes you wanna come back for more! By far the most helpful staff I have ever met (thanks Mba Nadi!). Car (with driver) is available free of charge anytime for a short ride around the hotel area. Useful if you have cravings for midnight snacks or when you're running out of mixers or when you simply wanna go to money exchange. The staff helped us a lot with car bookings (a little more expensive that the rates outside, but you will get cars with much better condition) and even outside restaurants reservation (even made sure they served vegetarian so it would fit to everyone's requirement). Some of us tried the in-house spa and, based on what I've heard from those who did, it's fabulous. We also had in-villa BBQ dinner during our stay and it was superb!!! They dressed up professionally like any big restaurants' staff would and decorated the villa with LOTS of candles and flowers by the pool it just looked so beautifully unreal. The food was quite good and there was enough and so much more to go for everyone.
To Ibu Anna, Mba Nadi, and the rest of the team attending to us - thanks so much for hosting us and making our last trip the most unforgettable one. We will sure come back for more!
