My friend and I stayed at the Chillhouse for four nights over the New Year and we could not have been happier with our stay. On planning out trip to Bali my friend really wanted to learn how to surf and I really just wanted to chill out. I did a bit of research and found the Chillhouse and thought it sounded like the perfect place for us. And it was!
From check-in to check-out the staff was extremely friendly, warm, and helpful in every possible way. They were ever ready to help with anything and everything we needed from booking transport and tours to helping us find a fun spot to spend the new year.
We stayed in the ChillaVilla, a short walk from the main house. Our room was very spacious and had two twin beds and a day bed(which helped GREATLY when packing). The patio was great for lounging and reading a book. One of my favorite parts of the house was the beautiful outdoor bathroom.
The amenities at the main Chillhouse complex were great. The have two pools on the grounds, both with great places to layout and relax. The bar was very inviting and was always ready to remind us that it was Bintang time! The yoga shala was also a great place to take in a yoga class. Yoga is definitely much better when practiced in an open shala with a view of a Balinese neighborhood as opposed to a cramped city studio! The communal dining room was also great. The meals were delicious and varied- we never ate the same thing twice. And the communal dining setting made it really easy to meet fellow guests.
Speaking of the guests, they may have been my favorite part of staying at the Chillhouse. I met such a varied group of amazing people. It was sad to leave the Chillhouse but when we did, we came away with the best souvenirs ever- new friends from around the world!
