Beautiful villa, nice size private pool, excellent responsive service. A totally lovely and romantic experience. We were celebrating our anniversary and they presented us with a delicious heart shaped cake at breakfast .

We stayed at the Gangsa for 9 nights. The stay was perfect in every way. The personnel was very kind and helpful. We did the romantic dinner night, all was very nice. The only disappointed thing was that my steak was very well done while I ask for Medium rare, my wifes mail meal was still cold and we ask for it to be reheated. My wife also did the cooking lesson, started by a visit to the vis market, followed by wonderful instructions by the Gangsa head chef. Unfortunately I got sick at day 2 so I could not participate in the cooking lessons. The girls at the massage area did a wonderful and professional job. We both enjoyed it a lot and went back 3 times. The Gangsa cookies is a must. The room was cleaned twice a day. We recommend the Gangsa to anyone who would like a nice and private holiday. Thanks to all staff for making our stay a lovely one.

We extended our stay at the Gangsa Villas in Sanur because it was so beautiful and we were treated like royalty. Upon arriving, our airport driver - Udi - noticed that Katie's birthday was that day. He confirmed with her but said nothing more. That night when we returned to the villas, the entire staff joined in a rousing rendition of "happy birthday" and presented Ibu Katie with a special cake with her name on it! It was wondrous to be treated so well.

The grounds are quiet, although families sometimes stay in the 2 and 3 bedroom villas, the staff is exceptional, the kitchen is excellent, and the accommodations are luxurious in an understated way.

The car service was available every time we wanted to get to the beach or to shopping or to dinner and the staff was always charming and helpful with cold water and lemongrass scented towels that were chilled for our return to the car. Wonderful.

This trip was just my partner and me and our intent was to relax and see a bit of Bali. The Gangsa made that possible.

PS: we visited the Kayumanis in Ubud and it appeared more luxurious, quieter, and with closer access to the town of Ubud's shopping area. Next time: we intend to stay in BOTH!

Gangsa is one of those hotels which will make you feel truly cherished. The 6 days here make you truly feel at home. The ever courteous staff and chef which are eager to make your stay comfortable is simply outstanding. Myself being a Vegetarian the chef went out of his way to tweak the the menu to suit my pallet. Special thanks to the ever smiling Ms. Partini Kadek (the hotel manager) who was quick to my answer my queries over emails and even went one step further when we have to reschedule our trip owing to an unfortunate accident which my wife had just before our trip.

Gangsa truly made our Honeymoon memorable. Will definitely like to go there once again.

There are so much things to write about our experience with Gangsa.. Traveled with 2 adults and 2 kids.

Lemme start with reservation: Booking was very smooth.. They responded to all of my inquiries so I could gather all the essential information needed for our stay. Compliment to Ms. Rika..

Airport transfer: We arrived in Bali on a busy day at the airport.. I assumed thats normal in Bali. Welcomed by the "Supir" (driver) at the arrival hall.. Offered with cold drinks and delicious cookies which my daughter love very much..

Villa: It was like we stepped into another world.. we were upgraded to 2 bedroom villa "Bebende", thanks to Rika.. Villa layout was nicely arranged and organized.. Its more into "open air" concept.. But still maintaining the privacy of guest. Well kept garden and private pool (not just a plunge pool as most resorts offered). Daily changed flowers, breakfast was delicious as well as other menu.. turn down service..butler service and shuttle around Sanur is a value added point to guests. We could just stay in the villa all day long.. as much as we love the swimming and hanging out beside the pool very much..esp. my 4 yo daughter..

Service: was excellent.. Well trained staffs.. Which never fail to greet and pamper us.. We were surprised with a cake for our wedding anniversary celebration. That was a nice touch from the Gangsa.

Rebab Spa: Worth every cents we spent.. They got our kids (baby sitter service) taken care of during the 2 hours treatment.

Overall: We had really great time at The Gangsa and I would really recommend anyone to anyone esp. for honeymooners and even who is travelling with family members..

I arrived very early, around 7-8am in the morning. After the long and exhausting flight, I fell asleep in the hotel lounge. At around 10 am in the morning, hotel staff approached and informed me that they could check me in early. We also got an upgrade to two-bedroom villa since one-bed are all out.

The up-on-request hotel shuttle to Sanur is very convenient. The staffs are very nice and friendly. It feels like they can do just about anything you ask them to do. I would highly recommend this place to honeymooner and families.

My wife and I stayed for 7 nights, April 25 to May 2 in Gander villa. It was all perfect from Airport pickup to checkout. Staff are great and service is perfect. Villa location is not a worry, as they will drop you off and pick you up anywhere in Sanur. Great service from your butler and all the staff. So friendly and happy. Food is good, villa is good, pool, big, clean and perfect temp. Plenty of hot water for shower or bath, A/c in bedroom set at 22C perfect for sleeping. We loved our stay and would highly recommend Gangsa Villa. Thank you Gangsa Villa for a great stay and 30th wedding Anniversary!
