We recently returned to Villa Devatas for our 2nd wedding anniversary, once again it was nothing short of spectacular!!
We also held our wedding at Devatas and it was truly amazing and once again our 2nd visit was just as great. I decided to write my 2nd review when I read AUSSIEJRB review, firstly I do not think you should be writting a review on a villa you did not stay in as you cannot give a true or fair account of the facility. You would have spent a maximum of 1 hour on the property and I do not think you can say you have experienced Devatas as it should be experienced.
My husband & I also inspected the villa 1 year before our wedding whilst the villa was vacant, yes there were a few leaves on the pathway when we arrived but you need to expect that considering the jungle environment. Alang Alang roofs will always have some kind of musty smell but as stated in previous posts an open door, window or turning the A/C on will eliminate that, it is the tropics afterall, neither myslef or my guests experienced that throughout our stay as rooms were aired and A/C's were being used.
On both stays at Devatas the property was immaculate, that included the pathways free of leaves, heaven forbid should a leaf fall from a tree! The staff are so lovely and attentive to detail, the food was beautiful and charged at local market rate, Cepaka is a beautiful village with its locals very warm & friendly, we absoloutley love Villa Devatas and will be returning for many years to come. What I can say for future brides & grooms looking to celebrate their wedding at Villa Devatas is you wont be dissapointed!! Our wedding was spectacular, our guests still speak about the setting 2 years after our wedding. None of my vendors had any difficulty in setting up gear, stairs are common in Bali and not really that difficult to tackle unless of course you are in a wheelchair. I had guests from small children to the elderly and everyone navigated the property without issue. There are many other reviews on Devatas which share my great experience, many other brides, grooms & holiday makers who would also disagree with AUSSIEJRB review. My 1 piece of advice to AUSSIEJRB is find another wedding planner, if your wedding planner refuses to take on your wedding due to your choice of villa he or she is very unprofessional and probably not capable of carrying out what is expected, many weddings have been held at Devatas without any issues and without any wedding planners quitting!
To Jacques and Staff, thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts for an amazing stay in one of the most beautiful places on earth. See you next time.
