When friends announced their wedding would be held at Pantai Lima, I immediately checked out the villas online. The photos oozed luxury and relaxation. What the photos couldn't convey was exactly how outstanding Pantai Lima truly is. The photos couldn't convey the friendly, yet simultaneously unobtrusive staff. The photos couldn't convey the pure stress-release induced by the yoga instructor and massage therapists. Pantai Lima is all of this and so much more.
Wedding guests were placed in every villa except Villa Waringin (not enough guests to fill all of them). Each villa possessed its own benefits ranging from private outdoor showers to hidden courtyard gardens and from infinity pools to a movie theater. I stayed in Villa Mary and cannot find one thing to complain about, however, guests in all the villas echoed the same sentiment.
Every need, and even those we didn't know we had, were met. One afternoon, I went into the dining room to see our villa manager to organize the driver for later in the day. One of the staff said that I looked as if I could use a drink and would I care for one, how about a fresh banana smoothie? I hadn't been thirsty, but at the suggestion of this, I couldn't refuse. The staff insisted I return to my lounging spot by the pool and that the smoothie would be delivered to me momentarily. And sure enough, a few minutes later, I basked in the sun, delicious smoothie in hand.
