We were a group of friends who decided to spend New Year's Eve (2010/11) in Bali. We all live in Singapore and have been to Bali more than 15 times. Therefore, we thought that we were the least people that would fall into such a trap.
For USD 800 per night, we thought that we would be quite happy with our 3 bedroom villa. Specially, given the photos in the website, we were quite excited to start our vacation.
We arrived to the Villa and it was filthy and in completely disarray. The villa is dirty and following apart and the website photos do not correspond at all to our expectations.
We contacted the travel agent and the villa managers. They were unresponsive and simply stopped picking our calls.
We had a horrible time and believe that these people are despicable.
DO NOT GO TO THIS VILLA. There are plenty of awesome alternatives in Bali. Also, never pay in advance. They get your money and once it is in their bank account they simply stop replying to you. This was a terrible eye opening experience.
