Reviewed April 26, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed in the brand new Villa Maia as two adults and two older teenagers. We were booked for 5 nights and then we transferred to Nusa Dua for our remaining 6 nights in Bali. However, after one night in Nusa Dua we rang Villa Agung Khalia (VAK) and asked them to take us back - which fortunately for us they did.

The villa itself is absolutely gorgeous - large and roomy, impeccably decorated with truly stunning bathrooms and infinity edge private pool. The location is incredibly peaceful, overlooking the rice paddies. However, what makes the place so sublime, is the staff. Overseen by Mr Agung all of the staff were warm, welcoming and went out of their way to do whatever they could for us to make our stay memorable. We felt especially cared for by Guru, Nyoman (driver), Dewi, Kadek, Putu and Nyoman (restaurant).

We were concerned initially that the teenagers, in particular, may find the location too remote with not enough 'activities' to keep them amused. This concern proved baseless as whenever the pool and immediately surrounds became inadequate there was always a free 10 minute transfer into Ubud itself available, or an organised trip at very reasonable expense.

The breakfast each morning consisted of fresh fruit, juice, toast and a chosen cooked item off the menu. Everything that we tried was fantastic, although there seemed to be inconsistency, depending on who was cooking that day, i.e. if we particularly loved something one day and then ordered it the next, it may be quite different (not bad different - just different) because someone else had cooked it. We also ate dinner at the restaurant on four nights and this was also very good, although probably not at the standard of some of the better restaurants down in Ubud.

We used the drivers at the villa extensively, from picking us up from the airport, transferring us to Nusa Dua, transferring us back to VAK, to having them drive us all around the island for days on end. We could not fault this service, even although some of the drivers have a less than extensive command of English.

We also undertook some of the activities organised by VAK. We did the bike ride down from Kintamani which was the unparalleled highlight of the trip, the trip over the Amed to snorkel on the Japanese WWII wreck, the elephant park for rescued Samatran elephants, and the nearby Indonesian cooking class which was also a highlight. We felt very confident in following the recommendations of Guru and Nyoman in respect of our activities and we certainly did not have cause to regret it.

Overall every member of our party had a fantastic time at VAK and we cannot wait to return.
