Stayed 5 nights in March this year and my wife and son and I had an absolutely amazing time. Such a beautiful villa. Staff are really fantastic, too. Everything was just perfect - the rooms were tidy and very spacious (aircon worked well also), the indoor/outdoor bathrooms were inviting and well appointed (nice big shower heads, nice big bathtub), the living area was a great place to hang out and watch some TV, or crank the stereo and kick back with a few drinks. (Ceiling fan blew a gasket one day and was repaired in a matter of hours.) Pool was a treat - very clean, and we used it night and day. Upstairs bale/chill area was fabulous, too. The breakfasts (3 different choices) were simple but attractively presented and, most importantly, extremely tasty. The staff do a really great job whipping them up each morning.
As I said, the staff were exceptional. Particularly Yani (it's actually Yansori in full) who was super-helpful and friendly, always smiling and keen to make our stay as enjoyable as it could possibly be. (And not that I tend to focus or care about these things myself, Yani also spoke the most perfect English. Self-taught, too, making it all the more incredible.) Nothing was too much trouble, and Yani went out of his way a few times to help us with some excellent contacts. We actually enjoyed his company so much, we even invited him to dinner on his night off. In 25-odd trips to Bali, I can't recall us ever doing that previously. Not to take anything away from the other staff who were lovely, too. Including the friendly security guard who works overnight.
Location was excellent - Jalan Batubelig has a much better vibe than the faux hipster snootiness that pervades most of Seminyak. We had fab restaurants nearby - Bow Restaurant was a few doors down, there's a quality Korean BBQ place very close-by, the tasty La Rustica Cucina was a few minutes in one direction, with the AMAZING Silver Apple a 5-minute walk the other way. And of course the consistently sensational Casa Taco is just around the corner in Jalan Petitenget. Heaps of fantastic choices.
We really had the most wonderful time at Gatra Villas and will readily come back to stay here again without hesitation.
