Our family of 4 stayed in Paratiwi in August 2011.
Overall we had a fantastic stay here and would recommend to any family. Gayatri is quiet, peaceful and well located.
We got a good price of $300 per night and felt this was fair, I feel the list price of $450 would be a little high unless a little more luxury could be injected such as newer towels, free sundowners in the evening etc
The Villa is very well appointed and the large, spacious bedrooms with super king canopy beds take your breath away. There are fantastic double baths for lazy evenings and there is more than enough space for a family of 4-6 to relax comfortably.
Some fittings are dating a little and we felt there was a wiring issue in the main house. Both myself and my father in law received quite bad electric shocks from a bedside lamp which was not replaced as requested, but returned with a new fuse. There was also a condiderable leak from the AC in the upper bedroom ceiling during our stay - the place could do with a quick R&M once over.
The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful. Gigih the Ops Manager is knowledgable about the area and speaks very good English. other staff are less confident but will always get you in front of someone who can help.
The breakfasts were a little disappointing with a choice of fruit, a pancake, toast or a cooked breakfast. We would have preferred a more continental style of cereals, yoghurts and breads but what was served was tasty and filling, if not a little samey.
The pool area is small but very pleasant, if not a little chilly in the mornings!
The villa is well located off the main road in Sayan and although difficult to find the first few times, most taxi drivers will know the area and it is safe to wander around the village. The position above the Ayung gorge affords fantastic views of the fields on the opposite banks if you have the top bedroom. Unfortunately, this is the onlt room with a view and the pool feels a little hemmed in, behind trhe back wall of another villa.
