“Wonderful Honeymoon Choice with limited budget”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

First of all, Nusa Lembongan is unlike Bali, the main island. If you are not a surfer, than you must take something else, like us, for honeymoon. My wife and I spent 8 nights in Villa Atas, at upstairs. It goes without saying for its stunning view, we spent few evenings/nights at kitchen and sofa area savoring the landscape, or having our own food brought from local market.

When you are a diver, it's about location, location, location! But what I am saying is, Villa Atas is nearby another 5-star resort but has it's uniqueness to conceal itself from tourists and divers.

Divers would stay at the other side of Playground, but it's only few minutes walk to get dive shops. My wife and I did few dives and we still can have our privacy during honeymoon.

We are lucky for the first 4 days when no body living down stairs. I would recommend you, if you are a couple, staying up stairs, it may be more surprising than you browse through their website. Do expect too much about the facility in terms of hot spot, TV ..., it's more towards a Eco-friendly villa than a 5-star restore. It's a perfect place for family reunion or honeymoon.

By the way, World Dive is the dive shop we recommend, a lovely British couple run it. We got to the Manta Point and saw 11 of them at feeding area. How lovely!

We stayed for 2 Nights and its absolutely fabulous, we found the downstairs much better due to the privacy, the greenery and view and the plunge pool. Travel light as you would have to carry all ur luggage up the fleet of winding stairs. Though Goodig the caretaker helps you with the luggage, even he can carry on or two big baggages. Else pay the porters if carrying surf boards etc.
Relaxed break from the crowd at Bali mainland. Took a bike for rent and explored the island and its connected twin island Chiningan. Villa is very comfy and secure. Makeyour own breakfast as stove with cutlery and pans are provided. Jus get some supplies and stock up. Villa Atas is beautiful by the day and night... Lorraine coordinates via mail and is very helpful... 3 Cheers for Villa Atas

We booked for 4 nights, Lorraine was very helpful answering our numerous email.
We didn't realise that Villa Atas was packed in so closely with many others on the hill side.
The layout and decor of this place has a good feel and offers a good quality.

Pros
* Gudig was very polite, genuine and attentive
* Room setup and facilities including bar fridge supplies very good
* Very good airconditioning
* View is great, pity it is obstructed by the villa roof in front and trees which means you only see half the vista, upstairs has a better view
* Dip pool very handy & refreshing, used it regularly
* Plenty of variety below in restaurants and food choices

Cons
* The reason why we left a day early is it lacks any privacy.
Upstairs steps go straight past our deck and pool, so you were obliged to say hello to everyone including visitors or appear rude, the noise from socialising prevented us from having a conversation a few times so we went out on those occassions, we came here for a break!
Also a screen on their common steps would make a big difference.
If you lay out on the deck chairs below, the upstairs have you in full view. We felt uncomfortable having a normal conversation as upstairs balcony is right over where you sit, swim or talk.
Everyone walking past up or down stairs look straight in on you.
* A lot of steps, up to the street or down to the cafes, hard work if you are old or unfit. Me and my partner are late 50's in good shape so had no problems.
* Face washers, hand towels & dish washing cloth either old or dirty, need replacing (not just rust as per instruction booklet)
* Shower head stem was broken, Gudig will fix it later so not to bother us??
* Ware Ware cafe disappointing, been to Bali a number of times, the breakfast food's taste and quality was so bad I sent it back, all other cafes/restaurant food was good to very good

Overall, if upstairs was not in such close proximity and we could get a degree of privacy without retreating to the bedroom we would have stayed the full 4 days.

Luckily we found a villa rented out by Linda's bungalows for $110 @ night, right on the beach with full views, own housekeeper/cook, very private, what a fabulous place!

I had the pleasure of staying for two weeks and I so didn't want to leave. This is a truly magical place, the gorgeous Villa Atas permits you to totally relax, unwind and let the world tick away as you sit amongst the view and breath it all in. The jungle pool is perfect to cool off, or snoozing on a daybed is gold - nothing is to hard here..
Alternatively, you can partake in all activities which can be accessed literally at the bottom of the stairs, the snorkeling is incredible but nothing beats swimming with the manta rays - what an incredible experience.
The island offers some amazing local cuisine at reasonable prices, alternatively to go shopping in the village or ask the house manager to pick you up some local fresh produce - the villa accommodates you to whip up your own delights with a fully kitted kitchen - surely the best of both worlds.
I had the best holiday here, true food for the sole. The locals are gentle, the villa is modern but with the gorgeous tropical bale style that transports you immediately into a state of relax.
Thanks Villa Atas and all who look after her, one of my best holidays - cheers!

Myself and my partner stayed for 3 nights at Villa Atas in Nusa Lembongan and thought it was wonderful. Great views, very comfortable and we didn't want to leave. The villa comes with service by a lovely Indonesian man, Gudig, who couldn't do enough for us - nothing was too much trouble.
The location is perfect, set high up on the hill overlooking the surf breaks and beach, and with some fabulous restaurants nearby. My partner loved the fact he could check the surf from bed in the morning. We had the downstairs apartment and as the upstairs section was not rented for the duration of our stay, we found the villa to be very private and quiet. Just what we were after! Highly recommended!

I wanted to let you know we had a wonderful stay in your lovely villa. We loved Lembongan and didn't really want to leave on our departure day!
But I wanted to pass on some feedback about Gudig (sp?). He was just wonderful to us and very very helpful during our time there. He kept the villa very clean each day and nothing was too much trouble to organise for us. Such a friendly guy and you are very lucky to have him working for you. I hope you can say hi to him from Vicki and Simon when you next speak with him.

Thank you and hopefully we can be in touch on our next trip to Indonesia to stay at Villa Atas again!

We loved Villa Atas and Nusa Lembongan so much so that we decided to change our plans so we could spend more time there. The view from the villa overlooking the water is beautiful and the local property manager even pruned a tree so that we would have an unobstructed view of the surf break (playgrounds). This meant we could get up in the morning and check the surf from the deck before deciding whether to take the 5-minute walk to the beach to paddle out. The surf was very mellow and fun--glassy and predictable, though you shouldn't go out too close to low tide b/c then the reef is quite shallow. At the villa, we stayed on the lower level, which was nice because unlike many places on the island (including the upstairs of the villa), there are real doors and walls on the bedroom, which was helpful for sleeping peacefully. Of course, if you like the open air feel, you can just open up the big doors to the bedroom and look straight out to the ocean. The villa is up a long set of stairs from the restaurants and shops below, so this wouldn't be the place to stay if you have mobility issues, but if you don't mind a few stairs, the location is ideal. There's a great cafe called The Deck just down the stairs, plus plenty of restaurants, massage places, and some shops right nearby. The owner was exceptionally helpful beforehand--she set us up with a driver named Nyoman to meet our flight and get us around the mainland, and he was very reliable. She also told us how to get internet sticks so that we would have wireless there--you can pay for wireless on the island, but it's very expensive, whereas if you purchase an internet stick called Smartfren in Denpasar (on the mainland), you can have unlimited wireless for a month for only $20. It's kinda slow, but pretty reliable and we were very grateful to have it.

Room Tip: For a couple, the downstairs villa is great value.

We only stayed for two nights - three days and generally enjoyed surrounds. The actual property was comfortable, clean and modern. Mypartner loved the location, it was a bit too busy for me. Service was provided with the the apartment. There is lower level which is also rented out so not very private. Also high density housing/apartment area so lots of neighbours and noise. Only a stones throw to the surf so very handy for going for paddle.
