We stayed at Aria for 10 days, the location, like most Villas in Bali is down a side street, it's a 10 minute walk to anywhere worthwhile, did not concern us as we hired a scooter the entire time we were in Bali. The pool in the Villa was in the shade most of the day so the water to cold to swim, we did not use our pool at all, I imagine in the warmer months it would be excellent. Aria advertise a sound system, however it is actually the DVD player through the TV not quite the sound system I was hoping for also no iPod dock which should be provided at this price. Villa nice enough but I would not rate 5 star, keep in mind just about everything in Bali is self rated 5 star, Villa Aria is a good 4 star. The staff were excellent, very friendly and attentive, without sounding negative excellent service is common in Bali so it is hard to rate Aria based on this. Breakfast is poor, this is one area Aria could improve, nice enough but limited variety with one hot dish changing daily to the point we learnt the rotation after 4 days we knew it was "pancake" day! We would probably not return to Aria not because we didn't enjoy our stay (we had a great time) but I think for the price paid we could find something more akin to 5 star quality than Aria.
