“Absolute Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

All the previous reviews are absolutely spot on, a wonderful villa in a remote spot tucked away in Paradise but close enough to Seminyak for civilisation if needed!

Putu the villa manager makes this retreat a special place to visit, he really does go the extra mile and nothing is beyond his ability to organise. Had a wonderful stay, many thanks to Michael the owner and his efficient staff. My family is well travelled across the globe and this stay ranks as one of the best.
We stayed on the smaller neighbouring island Lombok last year in a hotel owned private villa with butler service and thought it would be hard to beat, well this beat it hands down! The villa is huge, if there is any room for improvement it could only be the Internet speed but from what I could gather that is an Island rather than Villa issue and frankly I should not have been trying to work in such beautiful surroundings! First class.

Having stayed at Villa Menari before it was an easy decision to tame our lust to explore and try other villa's and return to Villa Menari. It proved a wise decision.
The Head of Household Putu met us at the airport with his normal grin, took our bags loaded them in the car and off we went.
The villa has not changed, lush and magical with high standards. We went out to some great restaurants - Cafe Warison, Hu, Sarong etc, but our most enjoyable meals were at the villa, the chef Iloo (not sure if I have spelt her name right)is a real gem who cooks Indonesian as well as International food to a very high standard. Once again, I highly recommend Villa Menari as a great place to stay whilst in Bali.

My twin brother and our families (8 adults) spent 14 days here to celebrate our 50th birthday, following a lot of research and enquiries we finally settled on Villa Menari as it offered everything we were looking for something a way from the hustle and bustle, private well appointed rooms, fantastic pool and gardens and all the extra's car, driver, chef etc. Booking the villa through Michael was easy and despite numerous questions re restaurants, activities and arrangements for our birthday nothing was ever to much. If we thought all this was great the team at the villa topped it all. A special thanks would have to go to Putu, our villa manager / driver, who would take us anywhere, pick us up at any time, book restaraunts, spa treatments, organise meals and massages at the villa and make any other arrangments including deccoarting the villa for our birthday, you will not find a more friendly and accommodating person, I have to admit a few tears were shed when we had to say goodbye at the end of our stay. We have already recomended Villa Menari to friends and family and wont hesitate to return, put simply Villa Menari exceeded all our expectations, thank you all

As soon as we reached the airport the high level of service started. We were greeted at the villa by Putu and the staff and then we knoew we had arrived. I dbooked the Villa Merari for my family and friends to celebrate my 40th birthday. For the whole group to be so impressed with the villa, rooms, people really helped to make my celebration one to remember (sort of...one too many margaritas jaded the memory a little).

I can't describe how special it was, this place is a gem

We have just returned from staying at the beautiful Villa Menari in Bali. It was an excellent experience for us all and we cannot speak highly enough of the villa staff and amenities. Nothing was a problem for Putu and the amazing team. From our first moment in the villa we were transfixed by the simple yet stunning layout of the surrounds and the comfortable and very spacious villa's. We loved relaxing at the villa, and on more than a few occlusions were simply happy to stay in and soak up the moment. The villa worked for us with a mixed group of friends including three birthday celebrations while were there, but would also equally make for a more intimate space for lesser numbers. The team at Villa Menari were a significant part of culminating the Balinese experience for us as highly memorable and one of the special treats that make a holiday totally amazing. Thank you once again to Putu and Illow and the wonderful team for a stunning holiday. much love to you all James and Mandy Cox (ACT, Aust)

We have just come back from a stay at the villa and can honestly say I will never stay at a hotel in Bali ever again, Villa Menari has shown me how amazing a private villa stay can be.
From my first contact with Michael the owner when making the booking, to arriving at the villa with Putu the manager to having the entire staff wave goodbye on our last day the entire experience was breath taking.
I know there aren't many photos on trip advisor but believe me no photo could do the villas justice, it is that good. I have used trip advisor for all of our travels but I would put the villa as our number one find.
I can honestly say give it a go and you won't regret it, great villa, great food, great staff at an amazing price.

This villa is paradise, heaven on earth. The villas and grounds are absolutely spectacular and the staff are amazing. Putu (driver and manager) is wonderful and Iluh's(chef) cooking is like being in a 5 star restaurant. The rest of the staff are fantastic as well and the massages are to die for. This is absolute luxury like I've never experienced before and the villa is perfect for families. Our kids loved it too. It's like having your own house. There's plenty of room for them to run around and play while you relax and enjoy. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!!
