We (2 friends) have had a great time at Holiway Garden Resort in Sept 2019. The place is really beautiful and right at the sea. Our Villa was very spacious and the terrace was great to sit at while listening to the waves. The yoga classes with Tanja and the massages and pedicure at the spa were amazing, the food delicious and Maria and her team really nice hosts. We felt at home and enjoyed our time very much. If we visit Bali again some day, we will definitely come back!
My friend and I just returned from a fabulous 2-week stay at Holiway Garden, which is located on the Northern coast of Bali. While it takes a while to get there (it is a 3-hour car ride from the airport at Denpasar), it is so worth it!! I feel like I have found paradise and could have stayed for much longer. I will definitely come back to Holiway Garden! We stayed in Villa Tara, which has 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Excellent accommodations! The resort is beautifully designed and very comfortable. The combination of friendly Balinese staff and German management is perfect (e.g. the resort functions efficiently, is super clean, and the staff offer great hospitality). I attended a daily yoga class (extra cost) and daily meditation (no cost), which were both great. I also visited the spa nearly every day for some treatment (e.g. variety of massages, facials, pedicure, etc). The ladies working in the spa are very good. Food is high-quality and uses the best ingredients. Meals tend to be very social with guests sitting together at large round tables and chatting. Therefore, it would also be a great place for solo travelers. During my stay, about 2/3 of the guests were German, but folks made an effort to also include the English-speaking guests in dinner conversations. I cannot wait to come back to this piece of heaven next year!…
I was passing and stopped in for a beer. Quite a way off the main road so it is peaceful. Most guests seem to be German. It is a nice place but certainly not a cheap place. About £100 per night. I was only here for a beer though. BY the sea - nice and peaceful.
I discovered Holiway three years ago during a stay for a seminar. I've been back each year since 2015, and I've enjoyed every visit! The rooms are very thoughtfully appointed. The staff is very attentive, and they make even effort to make your visit comfortable. The food is average - which is surprising since the raw material is excellent. Perhaps some more effort or passion for cooking is needed here. The location is quite special. As for a villa or room facing the ocean.
This place is amazing. I booked the yoga and meditation package together with a friend and it was the best choice! Very nice and quite location - heaven on earth! The nicest staff and amazing food. Yoga and meditation directly at the beach and awesome private trips to book and explore Bali! Quite high prices, but it is definitely worth it!!!! Very friendly and familiar atmosphere - awesome for single travelers as well! I will definitely come back!!!!!
