I stayed at the two bedroomed villa at Teman Desa , called Villa Satu in April 2009 and had the most relaxing week for years. We were really happy with the villa and its great style.
The attention to detail and the "interior" decoration (or should that be exterior interior ...) was second to none. You definitely get that "wow" feeling when you first walk in across stepping stones over water and gold fish, with the thatched roof outdoor living and dining area on one side, and the day bed on the other separated by your own private pool. I was impressed by the gardener visiting sometimes twice a day to pick any leaves off the lawn. The bedrooms/bathrooms were spotless and cleaned and tidied daily. The daily washing and ironing mean you don't need to take lots of clothes.
The area is very peaceful and laying on the day bed for hours reading was great. The 2 dedicated staff members where always on hand to make food or pour drinks but were never intrusive and seemed to magically disappear in to the shadows when you didn't need them. I can recommend the Asian dishes on the menu.
I don't think there are any shops nearby but that's what the driver and car were for when you wanted to get out. They would drop us in town and wait for us. Then drive us to the next destination day or night etc
We were told we could walk to a beach from the villa but to be honest we never felt the need to leave the villa on several days as we were so relaxed. Echo Beach is a few mins drive away and there's places there for lunch/evening etc. The pool felt like a warm bath all the time...you can lay in it for hours.
This isn't the place if you are after constant noise and distractions. But the big city is only half an hour away.
