This was my third time staying at The Longhouse. The first time was in 2010. We fell in love with the place. The staff are just wonderful. The villa is beautiful. The view is awesome. The food was incredible.

We were fortunate to spend a week here with our extended family. There were 11 of us in total. We had travelled from 4 cities around Australia and New Zealand to get there.

The welcome when you arrive sets the tone for a group of staff who are completely dedicated to making your stay the best they can possibly make it. They really are wonderful and they really care. A total highlight. We will not forget the effort they went to arrange and help celebrate an anniversary, it was stunning.

The villa itself is stunning, the architecture is amazing, it's huge and it really is like having a hotel all to yourself. For me, personally the size was a little daunting and I missed some of the intimacy that smaller properties can provide. It was sometimes a bit crowded in the main living area and not everyone could hang out on the couches at the same time. The views are beautiful, the villa is well located to the airport, kuta and seminyak is about 30-40 minutes drive.

We stayed in the Java room and it was perfect for us, the outdoor bathtub carved out of a single stone is amazing.. The housekeeping was great and laundry disappeared from the basket and magically appeared cleaned and folded! What a treat.

The kitchen turned out some amazing treats and the food was expertly prepared. We took advantage of the facilitated market tour and cooking school, not to be missed.

At times, ( and this may sound trite) it was a bit of a pain having to decide a breakfast time and menu each day, and perhaps having some regular items available for those who decide to sleep in would be a good idea.. having said that, it never occured to me to ask?

While the villa itself is an amazing building, the people who staff are it are for me the highlight.

Dear Kiwinui,
We are all so happy that you had a wonderful time at the Longhouse. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. You are right! If you had decided to come late for breakfast, we would have been happy to serve you when you arrived. It's your holiday after all :) ! It is true that we do have a long list of breakfast choices, from frittatas to breakfast fajitas to traditional English fry ups - some guests just ask us to surprise them each morning - an idea for next time.
We look forward to your next visit and promise that sleeping in is definitely on the menu.
Warm regards from all the staff at the Longhouse!

We had a brilliant time celebrating a birthday. Was met at the airport by the friendly and wonderful driver Eko.

Although the location is a fair way from the beach, the positive is that it is high up and you are presented with breathtaking views of the landscape from the pool area.

The villa itself is tremendous, especially the communal area beside the pool which is really delightful. Ideal for groups of 6-8

The rooms are also lovely, very spacious and nicely presented.

Staff are very friendly and reasonably professional. Aya and Happy did the utmost to service our every whim. Thank you to all the staff.

Small issues are the media room which is not usable due to damp issues, intermittent wi-fi (but this could be an infrastructure issue, not a villa issue), the bathroom towels were tired and there were never enough pool towels provided. All relatively minor issues, but still worthy of comment.

The food served by the villa kitchen was OK.

My husband and I have just returned back to OZ after spending 6 luxurious days at "The Longhouse". We shared this amazing experience with 10 of our friends as part of a special Birthday celebration (& reunion - combined).
We all soaked up the sun & pampered ourselves with all that "The Longhouse" has to offer....which included: treatments & massages from their spa range, swimming in the gorgeous swimming pool with panoramic views of Bali, resting in the open-aired outdoor area by the pool & indulging in the deliciously prepared meals served to us with a smile.
All the staff were wonderful & treated us like royalty. The bedrooms & bathrooms were amazing & the decor was inspiring. We loved the little fish ponds that were dotted around in amongst the manicured gardens.
Eko, our driver, was the best!!! He was patient, kind and very informative about the area & local attractions...most importantly, he was a fantastic driver.
We loved, loved, loved our stay. Thanks to everyone at "The Longhouse".

We are on our last night at The Longhouse after spending 5 days with our lovely friends. We are a party of 12 and most of us had never been to Bali before. On arrival at the airport we were met by our wonderful driver Eko who drove us safety around each day. what a lovely patient man ! When we arrived we were greeted with huge smiles by Ayu and Happy and Rudy. Ayu and Happy will be fondly remembered when we leave here for the huge smiles, abliging and generous nature. There were many highlights but the BBQ night that was set up for our friends 50th birthday was amazing complete with fireworks ! The meals each day were outstanding thanks must go to the kitchen staff. The ladies in the day spa were very professional and well worth the visit. Our rooms were simply outstanding....we have stayed in hotels in Vietnam & Thailand and this will rate as the best value for money. We hope to return.
