Our family enjoyed a week of absolutely fantastic vacation at Villa Elanora! The villa is clean, comfortable, and well furnished in a beautiful tropical style...it is even more gorgeous than the photos shown on the website since the lush garden has matured over time. The staff is more than accomodating to our requests and exceeded our expectations in every way. To top it all, our chef (recommended by the villa and hired separately) Mr. Bagus spoiled us with his delicious, authentic indonesian cuisine. Every dinner was a wonderful surprise! My children still ask if I can make certain dishes that Mr. Bagus prepared for them...well, I guess we'll have to go back soon for more!

We definitely recommend that you hire a car w/ driver for your stay there, since the location is a bit far off from town. It is specially necessary if you travel w/ children. Having a driver will make your daily excursions a lot more enjoyable since you don't have to worry about finding your way around (almost impossible) and parking (impossible).

Another note: it is in a tropical setting so you will see bugs, ants, mosquitos...etc but that just comes with the territory. It will be helpful to bring some bug bite ointment (for treament) and bug spray (for prevention...thought I don't know how effective since we didn't have any).

We also recommend that you try the massage service available for house call. For a very resonable price, you can enjoy an hour of massage either by the pool side bale or inside the villa. My husband and I made full use of this service...we even had our last foot massage at the villa right before leaving for the airport!

All in all, this is definitely a vacation worth repeating for us. I'm sure you will feel the same way after your stay at the villa!

It was our first time we rented a villa with a lovely staff ready to serve us when we needed it.
It is a really beautiful big sober and well equipped villa, with a flourish well maintained garden and a pool in the middle. Wahoo!
From there you can travel around and visit the island too.

Happy New Year!

We warmly recommend Villa Elanora for any family or small group looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in Bali. The villa is built with good taste and quality materials, the pool is excellent, and the garden beautiful. You will be able to use the facilities of the area's most exclusive country club, which also has a fine restaurant that is a branch of one of Bali's most popular Italian ristorantes. The nearby beach is nearly deserted except on Sundays (when it gets terribly crowded), and has a wild beauty about it; it's near some of the best surfing spots. Once you get past a few cows and dogs and an interesting temple with lots of garbage around, you get to the beach and can continue beyond a nearby fishing outpost and another, very beautiful, temple all the way to the Beach House, an excellent restaurant. We have not seen a single hawk. Elanora is not in a busy tourist area but in a new villa area still surrounded by rice paddies, so to get anywhere in the Kuta area or Denpasar you will probably have to take a long ride passing through "ordinary" neighborhoods, i.e. lots of motorcycles, potholes with or without warning signs, roosters, Hindu ceremonies, etc. Bali is definitely not a paradise for germophobes, but there are barely any bugs in and around the villa (we didn't ask how they get rid of them).The staff down from the manager is very friendly and helpful. They were always ready to do things for us, but would not hang around if we didn't need them. Iwan would bring coffee or water even if you didn't ask, and if you wanted him to do anything he'd do it if he could. I sent him to pick up two jackets I had made at Riori Tailors in Denpasar. We gave everyone what we thought was a good tip, though no one had asked. We even got a present ourselves from Iwan. Go if you can.

The other reviews more or less sum up my positive experience at Villa Elanora. Great value, friendly staff, good size villa allowing 3 sets of couples to congregate together if they choose or spread out in their own quiet areas. Walking distance to the beach to surf in the morning, situated about 10 minutes south of Echo Beach with many great surf breaks. Easy to get fresh fish daily from the fisherman along this beach and grill back at the villa.

I would definitely stay here again in the future.

We stayed here for 10 days and for the entire duration we didn't have any disappointments whatsoever, apart from a small issue with the layout of the villa which I will come to later on.

The villa was very clean, nicely decorated with a fully equipped kitchen which provided us with everything that we needed.

Accommodation also comes with access to the Canggu Club which was a bonus, this allowed us to maintain our fitness regime by using the gym facilities which were of a very good standard.

The issue we had with the layout of the villa was the positioning of the staircase which meant that the guests occupying the bedroom on the upper level had to enter into the ground floor bathroom in order to gain entry to the rest of the villa. This is ok for a family where the children are on the lower level, but for couples this could pose a privacy issue. None the same, you can work around this with a little bit of understanding and consideration for each other.
