Reviewed December 20, 2013

We have just returned home from our dream wedding and honeymoon in Bali. We selected Villa The Sanctuary Bali as it looked cool online but having never been to Bali before our wedding we had trust the online reviews and the advice from our wedding planner Beyond Events. Coming from New Zealand, we have a big family with heaps of kids, so the kids room and the 8 bedrooms meant everyone was sorted. When we arrived at the villa, the staff were amazing, taking our bags, to the welcome drinks, they really made our first experience in Bali awesome and special. I like that the villa was big enough to have all the family together but not feel too big or too small. ‘Meet you at the pool’ that was our saying!! The manager (his name is Ketut) was great, nothing was too much to asked and trust me went on many Bintang runs! Thanks Villa The Sanctuary Bali, it’s a place I hope to come back to celebrate my 40th in 3 years - Recommend the villa to anyone looking to be amazed and impressed...awesome staff, awesome rooms, best wedding villa, best day of my life!

Room Tip: The area along the pool with billiards bale and media room is heaven.

I stayed at Villa The Sanctuary Bali for 6 days with a group of friends and we absolutely fell in love with the place. The scenery is gorgeous with a great pool which overlooks into the wild. The staff was very kind and welcoming. What I loved the most is the FOOD. I must admit that the chef is incredibly good and it is the best place where I ate in Bali. I would recommend Villa The Sanctuary Bali for big groups such as families because it can accommodate more than 20 people and there are plenty of entertainment areas such as the TV room or the pool table lounge next to the main pool. It's a beautiful Villa with lots to offer for anyone who wants to enjoy a little piece of paradise.

Room Tip: A massage in the lumbung along the river is heaven

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful staying at The Sanctuary is! A completely exclusive and modern villa that allows you to have all the privacy you need amidst a beautiful setting - perched atop a cliff overlooking a river, in the middle of a blooming jungle. The common areas are comfortable and practical and allow for sunbathing, relaxation, playing pool, watching movies, yoga classes and much more under the very attentive eye of the amazing staff that will ensure you have everything you need! The chef is high quality and will accommodate his menu for every palate, it was a pleasure creating our menus every day with him. The rooms are charming and luxurious and make you feel right at home. The villa is perfect for hosting diners, cocktail parties or simply just to enjoy the peaceful grounds. Thank you Frank for a wonderful stay at The Sanctuary, I will definitely be back in the near future.

Room Tip: The two private rooms off of the main dining area are absolutely wonderful!

We stayed at Villa The Sanctuary in october and held our wedding and reception there. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The staff, accommodations and gardens were absolutely spectacular! From our 1st point of contact with the villa all our queries & requests were answered immediately, they assisted us immensely with the planning of our wedding and we will be forever grateful for their assistance.
Nothing was ever a bother, the staff were so friendly and helpful and most of the time you didnt even know they were there, they are very discreet yet the moment you need them they seem to magically appear. The food & beverage selection was wonderful, my only disappointment was I never got to try everything on the menu!
The Sanctuary staff oversaw all of the wedding vendors and making sure the villa maintained immaculate throughout the chaos of setup, greeting our guests, everything from the start of the day to the end of the day, I dont think without their invaluable help things would have run as smoothly as they did. The day was amazing, beyond what we had expected and our guests were absolutely amazed with the day, we were complimented by so many guests that it was the best wedding they had ever been too.
We could not have wished for more!
The new bunk bedroom which can accomodate 20 kids is perfect and make our stay very, very affordable for the 36 of us.
The bedrooms and living areas are beautifully decorated, the bathroom products are luxurious and smell divine, the fresh tuberose's and orchids just beautiful... Of all the places I have ever visited Villa The Sanctuary is my favorite. From the moment you arrive you are immersed in its beauty, tranquility and its spirituality. I cannot wait to stay there again and highly recommend anyone considering at stay at The Sanctuary to do yourself a favour, you wont be dissapointed!

Quick Background:

We hosted our wedding in Villa The Sanctuary Bali. Our immediate family stayed on the property for 5 nights. We had over 80 guest in the area, whom stayed at multiple villas - depending on their group size...

Villa The Sanctuary Bali is breathtaking, the pictures do not do it justice. It is truly a world class property. The views and facilities are of the best that any of our 80+ guests, who travel frequently, have visited. This is truly a luxury facility with a luxury staff that caters to your needs as a group.

We cannot complement the staff enough. They had a clear motive, which was to enhance each guest experience. Especially Ketut and Salam went out of their way.

This is not an all inclusive / spring break / party-gooer area. If you are looking for luxury, top notch meals, beautiful beaches (about a 5-10 minute car ride) with world class accommodations - look no further than Villa The Sanctuary Bali.

Notes:

-the villa is beautifully built overlooking jungle and river. Staying here is an experience as such and the “wow” factor is as big as the villa…I recommend to visit this villa so you understand what they offer. This is what made us take the decision to book Villa The Sanctuary Bali. It is impossible to put the size and feel into a picture. Once we had the inspection done we had no more doubt!

-the views are amazing as is the architecture of this villa. It has taken a lot of courage to develop and manage such a beautiful property tucked away in a local Balinese village. We will come back for many years to come as we just love Bali.

-the aura of the villa is priceless and the name of the villa does it justice. We loved it here!

-the rooms were very large and comfortable. We especially liked how the a/c was in every room so that you could individually control the temperature. In November the weather tends to get hot and dry.

-we especially loved the pool and Jacuzzi.

-the drivers brought the youngsters in and out Seminyak safe when they wanted to party so we didn’t had to worry at night..

-the food was impeccably prepared and fresh: every day.

-the location is perfect: I think it is almost impossible to find a villa in Bali with so much space and privacy. Seminyak is not far and the beach is less than 10 minutes away.

Last but not least:

We booked our wedding with a wedding planner recommended by Villa The Sanctuary Bali and we can only congratulate them of making our event so perfectly organized. It was beautiful and perfect. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent!

This villa is spectacular. The location (and pool) are priceless - almost one of a kind. The staff was fabulous.
You cannot do better in renting this high end home for a week. The home, staff and location totally justify the cost and you leave thinking nothing of the price because the experience is so special.

Site of our wedding, and base for four nights for our immediate families and bridal party. As our guests said, it was an amazing setting, and provided the perfect venue for our big day. Each of our party of 16 felt they had all the time in the world to lap it up – both literally in the pool, and whilst gazing into the forest. The on-site manager and head butler took care of our every need, including arranging for great meals prepared from locally procured produce, massages in the rooms, and driving us in and out of Seminyak at all hours, to Tanah Lot temple and finally to Ubud. A few more hand-towels, especially in the common bathroom by the pool, and more accurate accounting of the fuel bill for transport would have made it perfect, but these were ultimately trifles – we loved it, loved it, loved it, and were sad to leave. A true sanctuary. Really great.

Room Tip: Best value per person if you can fill the whole place. Master suite is amazing.

Dear Nathan,

warm regards from Villa The Sanctuary Bali.

Thank you for your time to share your Villa The Sanctuary Bali experience on Tripadvisor. We were very happy to host your wedding and thank your wedding planner for the professional approach. They did a great job! What a beautiful event!

We had a staff meeting and the on-site villa manager Ketut and the head butler Salam will make sure there will be more hand towels in the common bathroom by the pool and more accurate accounting of the fuel bill for transport. Thank you for this feedback. This allows us to improve and work towards perfection as that is what we aim for.

We are all very happy you loved your stay with us and we hope to welcome you again in the future.
