There is nothing I could fault about Aria - it was an absolute dream! From the moment we were picked up by Ketut (who is a total gem!), our time with Aria couldn't have been better. The facilities are immaculate, and very spacious; the pool was huge, as was the living area and gazebo, which was brilliant for laying around in the afternoon breeze. The location is amazing; it is secluded from the front, and the back entrance takes you to the same road as Potato Head, which is about a 5 minute walk away, as is Sarong, another favourite! There is parking for bikes at the back too. There was construction going on during our stay, however, we were in Villa 9 near the front, so the noise wasn’t a problem. I would definitely recommend Villa 9 (one bedroom private villa), as it got a lot of morning sun, making the pool really nice and warm.
The only complaint (and this is really clutching at straws!), is that the paintwork on the outside of the villa could use a little retouch, but honestly, this is so minimal it didn’t even phase us. The bath was huge and we did have a bit of a hard time filling it up with warm water, but it’s Bali, you don’t really anticipate wanting to sit in a hot bath for ages. Otherwise the bathroom was glorious – was so nice to shower in the sunshine every morning, and with a mosquito coil, there was no bug problem at night. All in all an amazing stay, with wonderful staff and a stunning villa – would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!!
