We had spent the first two days of our family vacation in another resort prior to Villa Santun. Upon arrival at VS (if I could endearingly call the villa so), we were greeted by the warm staff and the paddy fields just as the pictures promised. The staff were delightful and great with both my children, 2yo & 7yo. The villa was clean and in-villa breakfast at our preferred timing is a treat. The bathroom is luxe and very big (and I do mean HUGE).
The chef was most accommodating and cooked my fussy tot porridge for lunch and dinner. We even had a packed lunch from the villa's kitchen for the kiddo on one day when we wanted to be more adventurous and try local dishes in town.
The family unanimously agreed that this villa is five-star and we were already checking out the four-bedroom villa for our next family trip before we actually check-out.
My 7yo says "I enjoyed staying in the villa as the place is very big and I can see cow and chickens at the paddy field." My 2yo loves the transfer on the buggy and kept asking to leave the villa.
The villa isn't at all a far walk to the main street but the buggy makes it very convenient. There is also a free shuttle service to Ubud Town at specific hourly intervals. But should you wish to leave when the free shuttle isn't available, the front desk can arrange for a car for a reasonable fee.
Now comes the eventful part of the trip: we discovered we lost a mobile phone when we reached Denpasar Airport! All our pictures are taken on the phone and thinking that it will all be gone was enough to make my kid tear. We tried to search for the phone in the airport but to no avail. Just as we were resigned to having lost the phone, I thought we could call VS and ask if they could help us locate the missing mobile when we reached home (we were clueless where could we have possibly dropped the mobile). The VS staff promptly agreed to help search when we called them before we board our flight home. The best news upon reaching home was that they had found our mobile !
To everyone at VS, we are very thankful I hope it won't be long till we are back !
