We selected Arama villas from the Villas from Bali website.
Overall we had a great experience. We had villa 10 which is great because it’s the last villa so we didn’t have to worry so much about screaming kids in the pool.
We travelled as 2 families with 2 6 year old boys. It was heaven for them and great for us. 3 bedrooms was ample space for each couple to have their own room and bathroom and for the boys to have their own too. Lounge room was equipped with a dvd player so we bought up on dvds when we were out and about for down time. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed so for breakfast and lunch we mostly self-catered or went and picked up takeaway. Bintang supermarket is only a 2 min cab ride or 20 min walk.
Room service was also available and we used this option sometimes for the children. Servings where plentiful and price reasonable.
Loved the water cool, so much better than individual bottles of water.
Boys swam all day and we didn’t have to worry about going down to a hotel pool all the time they could swim and play at leisure and we could all relax too.
Downsides, a few flood issues in the bathroom after a massive downpour. Nothing that upset up, we remember this is Bali and things like that happen sometimes. Wifi didn’t work in the unit while we were there. Didn’t bother us much as we didn’t need it too much, Wi-Fi is always unreliable in Bali.
Upside. villas are fantastic when travelling with children. Younger kids I would have been worried about the pool as of course there is no fencing etc., but this age group was ideal. Staff where very friendly and only present when you wanted/needed them to be. i.e. room service. So we had the benefits of hotel comforts and privacy of the villa.
Would we stay again? Definitely.
