“Magical!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Hi All,

We stayed at Villa Bekul with our extended family: grandparents, aunts, sisters, brothers-in-law, young children of 2, 3 and 4, a total of 11 people for 8 nights in May 2014. The experience was nothing less than relaxing, tranquil and magical.

Every day we woke to the sound of nature and enjoyed the sea view from an elevated point. Within the view was the villa pool itself, the surrounding green garden, the canopy of an ancient tree and the small temple housing the guardian of the villa. It is the way to vacation when you are celebrating the reunion of an extended family with young children!

The staff were young, sweet and attentive. We felt very well looked after by all of the staff members: the chef, the sous chef, the gardeners and security guards. The villa transport provider, Bob Bali and his family have become personal friends of mine.

I highly recommend Villa Bekul if you are looking for a villa:

* that is new and well maintained;
* quiet and secluded;
* ocean view;
* daily swim in large infinity pool;
* surrounding greens for kids to run around;
* star-gazing around pool at night
* delicious local cuisines;
* feeling of being well looked after on your well deserved yet extended family vacation.

Plus Angelique is great! Very kind, helpful and responsive!

Thank you all so much again for making our family time in Bali nothing short of magical. I miss you all very much xxoo!

Sending you love & light,
Tina

“Fantastic Villa let down by very poor Villa management and staff.”

The Villa is absolutely fantastic but IMO is let down by either staff who don't care about guests or by an owner who wants to maximise profit while ignoring customer requests. I was extremely surprised to be quoted 500,000 IRP to buy ingredients (fresh meat and vegetables) to cook breakfast and lunch for an adult and 3 children under 8 and was increasingly irritated to be offered help by the Villa Manager to organise a hire car that was double the going rate available in Lovina. This in addition to being asked to purchase cleaning products, insect killer and toilet paper, tissues and water that were being used by the staff.

This villa is beautiful but bear in mind it is high in the hills and you need transport to go anywhere. It has insects everywhere and ants are a problem as they seem reluctant to either spray the exteriors or clean the floors and external areas to discourage them.

They are also in desperate need for some shading in the pool area. There is a Balinese Gazebo but this is on the top level and useless if you have a family or are entertaining in the pool/kitchen dining area.

Finally do not expect any assistance from the owner or representative when there. I did email them with some questions and asked if i had made a mistake as to my expectations the property but there was no improvement. They said they would send the manager around for a chat but I did not see him until the morning of my departure 3 days later!

As I said - great villa, shame about the staff and a general reluctance to listen to suggestions on how to improve.
