My husband and I spent nearly a week at Red Door in early August 2013 which proved to be a life enriching experience.
The location and construction of the villa itself bought with it a sense of peace and tranquility almost upon our arrival.
The caring hospitality of the staff bought warmth,friendship and gratitude into our lives.
Red Door has been beautifully constructed and fits well into the local surroundings.Our villa overlooked the rice fields which seem to promote a feeling of calmness.
Our villa was very roomy--the bed was very comfortable and an ingenious construction meant that the bed was covered with a mosquito net which was not right on top of us. The high thatched ceilings and lovely wooden built-in complete the picture of this beautiful room.
The shower/toilet are also creatively designed, so that while showering you felt as if you were showering in an open country setting.
The downstairs area was a lovely open area constructed of beautiful wood.The comfy couches made it an ideal area to read or to just relax.This looked out on the swimming pool which was clean and inviting.An eating area adjoins this area . It is lovely to be able to eat and look at the villa's many banana and coconut trees and garden.
While some of the magic of Red Door comes from it's construction and surroundings,the joy and energy which we felt while we were there, comes from the staff of Ayu,Ywan, Made, Numan,second Made and Agust.All seem to enjoy working together to bring joyous experiences to their guests.
Ywan--the main organiser, could not have been more caring.
Canguu is ideally located, in that you can experience the simplicity of village life and yet still be easily able to drive to enjoy the delight food experiences of Seminyak and Ubud have to offer.
When we didn't go out to eat, breakfast and other meals were cooked for us by the villa's cook,Made, with help from the other staff.Made loves to cook and try different spices and I would have to say that the meals we had at Red Door were among the best we had in Bali.
Our most memorable night at Red Door was my 60th Birthday dinner which the staff organised for me.Without any fuss the staff transformed the thatched roof but open sided massage area into a private dining area..A white tablecloth,beautiful flowers and candles completed the fairytale scene.The garden was also lit up with many candles.
An amazing 5 course meal complete with champagne and wine was cook by Made and his helpers.It was really delicious---but what made it all the more special was that it had been arranged and cooked with great care and love and the staff were delighted by how much we enjoyed the meal.On returning to our room we found that " Happy Birthday" had been written on the bed in rose petals---what a beautiful surprise!!!
The villa is also able to provide their guests with the services of a masseur and a masseuse for a therapeutic massage.Both my husband and I felt we benefitted enormously from the skills of these people.
The driver ,Agust,was a really excellent driver.This is a high praise coming from someone who is a nervous passenger.
What the owner and staff have created at Red Door is intangible. The whole experience at Red Door caresses the soul and reinvigorates the body.
We would like to thank the staff at Red Door for their many kindnesses to us . Their approach to life taught us much.
