I stayed in Villa 8, a 2 bedroom villa in April with 2 girlfriends and what a fabulous time we had. The villa far exceeded our expectations. It was extremely spacious, clean and at no time did we feel our privacy was compromised. I was a bit hesitant to book due to the bad reviews but am so glad I did. This was my 15th visit to Bali and having stayed at many hotels and villas previously and I was very impressed. As a former travel agent, I have also inspected many hotels in Bali.
The villas are very big. The 2 bedrooms are very spacious. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and both rooms have big flat screen tvs. The bathrooms off each room are also very large and have both inside and outside shower which is really lovely. I very rarely used the inside shower as it was just so nice to use the outside one. There is enough storage space. The bed also has a great mosquito net that goes over the entire bed so if you chose to sleep with the doors wide open and lots of fresh air you could. The only suggestion to the hotel I could make here is to have some extra towels and little soaps for washing hands.
The pool was massive and perfect temperature. It was always clean and they were kind enough to bring an extra sun lounge to our deck as there were 3 girls. The pool was the same size as a normal backyard pool and was a good depth for all ages. There was also a nice wide step at one end so you can sit down in the pool and relax with a book and a drink. The only suggestion I would add here is a hand rail at one end of the step as it can be a little dangerous for people to enter the pool as the step into the pool is quite deep with nothing to hold onto. For families with children you can request a small pool fence to ensure your children can't access the pool without you....great bonus.
The gardens around the villa are beautiful and always kept neat and tidy.
The main living area and kitchen/dining are very spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and really anyone who says there is not enough cooking utensils...really??!! Why would you want to cook when you have all these fabulous restaurants 5 - 10 min walk away or a quick taxi ride??!! I loved the way that you could close the bi fold doors and watch a movie or eat in air con comfort. The tv and stereo were adequate and can't complain...I don't go to bali expecting Bowers & Wilkins equipment. It is more than sufficient and was a treat to play some music while you're around the pool with the doors open. It was lovely having a huge big dining table and we would sit around there in the mornings after breakfast just relaxing and chatting.
the staff serve you breakfast quietly and then leave you alone. The breakfast was nothing fancy but it was more than adequate. If breakfast for you is a big deal then go out and buy something. To be honest, the toast, fresh tropical fruit and tea were fine for us.
Cleanliness...everyone seems to complain about that here and I can't. We had no problems with this but then everyone has a different idea of what clean is. Streaky marks on a bench don't phase me in the slightest. Our rooms, beds, bathrooms and kitchen were always spotless and absolutely no complaints. Any time there was an issue it was rectified immediately.
Staff were always friendly and helpful and apart from the morning we never saw them unless we needed to.
The location is great and I love that you don't have to enter the villas from a hotel lobby. You access your villa from the street.
One of the real treats from staying here too was the Bali Epicures Spa Services. They have the book inside the villa and we organised for the professionally trained ladies to come in every morning from 9 - 11.30 am and we would have massages, pedicures, manicures, facials every day. It was pure bliss! The fact that it was all done in our own villa was the ultimate in relaxation.
We absolutely loved the Villas and can't wait to stay there again. After reading through other reviews on here I thought maybe we just had an outstanding experience but I recommended to my brother and his partner and their friends who are also staying there with 2 small children at the moment and they love it as well. Their feedback was the Villa's are awesome.
I think when you go to Bali you need to realise that 5 or 4 star there is not the same as Australia, Europe or US so don't expect it.
Thank you to all the staff at Villa Nunia!! We can't wait to go back!! Villa Nunia is definitely my favourite accommodation in Bali. Well done guys!!
