My bestie and I wanted to have a girls-only trip together so when we found a Groupon deal for BNG villas we thought it seemed good after reading previous tripadvisor reviews.
We stayed for 3D2N and we could not have asked for more. The journey from the airport to the villa was not too lengthy and was very comfortable in the free airport transfer provided by BNG. We had intended to take a local tour after collecting an array of pamphlets on display at the airport. The friendly reception staff let us use their landline to call the local tour agencies and even helped us bargain for better prices.
Our villa itself was a dream. Seriously. We walked in with absolute awe at how clean, and visually inciting the villa was. We loved the interior design. Space wise, it was adequate for the two of us. Not too big and not small at all. The pool was spotless, although we wished we cldve spent more time in it, coz we were mostly away exploring Bali. The bedroom was luxurious with balinese-styled furniture. I think our fave part of the villa had to be the bathroom. Call me a mountain tortoise but being able to shower under the stars is an experience I would never forget. Plus one of the nights while showering, it started raining. Imagine that! There are the occasional 'visitors' like lizards and tiny frogs but thats a con of having a open-concept bathroom, one cannot avoid. But if you're not one who likes being that close to nature, then I suggest opting for another room with a less open bathroom. About privacy, we had more than enough of it, as the walls surrounding the bathroom were very high and it felt as if we were in our own house, just that our bathroom was missing half a roof =)
The bed was very comfy and both nights we had undisturbed sleep as the villa was surrounded by paddy fields. So the only sounds u hear, are that of ur own breathing. Every morning the staff would call us just before they bring in our breakfast so that we could freshen up and open the villa door for them. It was a very private experience being able to have breakfast in your own villa without having to go anywhere. I would suggest choosing from the western breakfast options as we found it to be better than the indonesian ones. The staff will clear the food and plates after we leave the villa for the day, so when we got back it would be spotless again.
On our first night we had decided to go clubbing in the hotspots in Bali and the staff, seeing we were two ladies heading out alone at night, offered to call a blue bird metered taxi driver, whom they trusted to bring us out. I felt that they went that extra mile to ensure we felt safe in their country. And indeed we did.
On the 2nd night the staff were very friendly and even suggested we choose from their DVD collection and have a restful evening in the villa before we checked-out the next day. Also, since our flight back was in the afternoon, we had wanted to go shopping in Seminyak. But the helpful staff suggested we go to another part of Bali where we could get a better variety of things, for a cheaper price. She even helped us arrange for a driver to bring us there, wait for us to finish shopping and send us to the airport, at a cheaper price than if we had hired a taxi on our own.
In all we were very pleased with the service at BNG Villas and am looking forward to going back there again. I highly recommend travellers to consider BNG Villas =)
