I have been to many beautiful and amazing places in the world, but I have never had so much trouble leaving as I did Villa Santai. From the moment the driver, Wayan ha, picks you up at the airport you know you made the right decision. Stopping along the way to sample some local fare and grab some drinks for the ride to Ubud was a must and not a problem for Wayan. My wife and I along with another couple friend of ours had just made the best decision of the new year. Arriving at the Villa is nothing short of breath taking. I did know whether I should get a drink, take a swim, take pictures, sit down and attempt to understand how I got to this point in life, or just focus on not passing out. Luckily, I had time to do all of it and more. Quick dip in the pool with a frosty Bintang only to find myself walking around the grounds in amazement a short time later. I think at one point I forgot that I came with other people. I was in a trance, or it could have been the Bintang. The people, ohhhh the people, at the Villa go ABOVE AND BEYOND anything you could expect. From our day trips to dinner and breakfast there was never a sense of disappointment. THEY PACKED A COOLER WITH BINTANG AND WATER FOR OUR DAY TRIP AND WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO ASK :)
I would say, for those seriously considering a trip to Bali and something in the price range of Villa Santai do not hesitate. Book now, book it twice! I cannot imagine how you could be disappointed. OOHHHH, and sleep in the suite on the river side for more of a cooler room and nicer sound. I could go on and on, but it is not conducive to my withdraw symptoms from Villa Santai and Bali in general.
