“Heaven!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We have 2 days left of our 8 day stay. We are in a 1 bed Villa and I am writing this review from beside the large private pool feeling totally relaxed. I guess if you considering booking this place you are after privacy and some peace and quiet. This place is totally private and is just paradise. The design of the place with comfortable outside seating and kitchen is perfect. Sometimes when you view pictures on the internet you cannot help but wonder if it is really that nice. Let me tell you the pictures do not do this place justice. It is amazing.
The staff are extremely helpful and will do anything for you. The guys who cook your breakfast are great. The arrive at a time of your choice with a smile, fresh fruit and a choice of full American of Indonesian breakfast, tea, coffee toast etc. You must try the Indonesian the Noodles are superb. No lukewarm buffet rubbish here.
I would agree with previous reviewer in that there is no need for a torch. Yes it's a little dark but you can see perfectly well. In my view Sanur is a very safe place. If walking back bothers you just jump in a taxi for 50p and get dropped at the door.
Do not bother looking anywhere else just book this place!

We just spent 9 days at katala!
We had booked a 1bed villa and also a 2 bed villa.
Do yourself a favour and stay here the place is amazing and so handy to the supermarket and also sanur Main Street!
Don't bother yourself with the other reviews saying that the alley you walk on to the main road is dark and dingy because it's not. You feel so safe walking along there. More safe than you feel walking around Sydney!
The villas are amazing and very well kept!
They have a massive private pool which is the biggest I have seen in a villa before!
They have lovely bedrooms and a bathroom straight out of a designer magazine!
Jerry and katut who come and make your breakfast are so friendly and well the brekky is to die for especially the Indonesian breakfast, do yourself a favour and try it!
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at katala from airport transfers to extra towels and booking tours!
This villa is amazing if u are looking for a quiet and relaxing stay do yourself a favour and stay here!
Best trip to Bali we have ever had and we have been many many times
I would not stay in a hotel again after staying here

Without any doubt the best private villa we stayed in for the last few years. We rented months in advance the 2 bedroom villa. Upon arrival - welcome drink included - the first of august 2013 the first we noticed was the extreme friendliness of the entire staff, ever smiling! Just great to be welcomed in such a warm way.
The location is perfect for relaxing and is close enough to the beach and the main strip of bars and restaurants. Only 10 minutes walk from Hardy Supermarket.
Breakfast prepared by Mr. Jerry and Mr. Katut are just great. Every morning - at the time you asked for - they ring at the door to prepare american, french or indonesian breakfast. You really should try the indonesian one, yummiie! We loved it!
The rooms have all the comfort desired, nice bathroom with outdoor shower. Bathroom amenities included. The room comes with hotel service, every morning it is cleaned.
Ask the reception for the restaurants who deliver food at the villa.
We also had a massage in our own private villa. The masseur (male or female) is the guy or girl from the footreflexology-shop a bit further down the road to Hardy's. Massage is recommended!
We'll be back for sure!

My wife and I have just spent a magical five days at Katala.

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we have loved every moment staying here.

The rooms are well appointed with staff cleaning them immacuately each day. Whilst we were staying we noticed the staff spent close to a day cleaning another of the villas. When we asked if this was normal we were told they spend half a day (two people) for the one bedroom villas and almost an entire day for the larger villas, cleaning and preparing them before guests arrive! They certainly take a lot of pride in their work - and it shows!

Breakfasts were prepared for us by Jerry and Mr. K (Kartut). Both have been friends for years and it shows - their smiles are infectuous! On our last day we had Jerry and Mr. K cook us a traditional indonesian lunch as an added extra. Mr K cooked the fish and chicken using a family recipe while Jerry BBQ'd like a champion - the meal was yum!

I cannot think of a bad thing about the place. We experienced no power outages and I noticed power regulators had been fitted to prevent power spikes/drops. Even when a lightning bolt hit nearby one morning, the power stayed on.

I highly recommend staying here. We will be again!

I can't fault a thing. This place is amazing. We walked past other places, including the Hyatt, and felt sorry for the people staying there! Katala has it all: Privacy, luxury, cleanliness, attention to detail and fantastic service.
Kaput and Gerry have been so lovely to us. When my fiancé was sick they made him fresh ginger tea. We organized with them a lunch to be cooked on our last day (now!) and they have taken it on with so much enthusiasm. It has been a pleasure to have them around (but they gave us complete privacy too).
Yes, it is own a dark alley but I walked home late last night by myself and felt safer than I am at home in Australia.
We feel completely spoilt. We have enjoyed relaxing and dipping in to the pool to cool down - clean and big.
Thank you to everyone here. It will hard to ever find a place as good as this for this price ever again.

Lovely, well-maintained and gorgeously private villas. Blissful pool all to ourselves! Good location in Sanur; could walk everywhere. Breakfast cooks / cleaners, Gerry and friend, were lovely & very professional; excellent cooks too! Definately take a torch for the nearby laneway though, but it feels very safe even though it is somewhat dark!
