I do recommend Astana Batubelig villa!
We had 3 days reservation there (07/2013) and had a wonderful time. Good value for money! we ordered a package with flights from Singapore from AsiaTravel.
Service was excellent and on time all the time. We ordered breakfast every evening from a menu that had 4-5 different choices (from continental to american) and could even choose our own juices and type of eggs. we said the time and breakfast was always delivered on time to our own kitchen.
2 * 0,5l water bottles are delivered to your bathroom every day. Once during your visit they replace (without charge) minibar's honey peanut, coca cola and green tea drinks. in the kitchen you have tea bags and water heater. Villa offers room service, some small snacks and appetizers.
Private Astana Villa is exactly what you see in the hotel pictures. Beautiful, quiet, clean, tastefully furnished. Bathroom is pretty and big, bedroom bed faces the pool. The glass doors of the bedroom can be opened so that you can dip into your own pool right from your bedroom.
Astana Villa with a private pool was an excellent choice for spending relaxed time. All the villas are the same shape and size and pool. The pool has a few water massage points and the depth is about 1,50 meters which was good for swimming.
Since Villa Astana is situated in Seminyak you do need a taxi to get around. The streets are not wide or safe enough for walking. But the taxi to for example Kuta is only around 30 000 rupiah. It takes around an hour to to the airport. If there is traffic or a big bus turning around (for example on temple seremony days) the traffic can be stuck for a long long time. Note this if you are going to the airport!
The only negative thing to say about Astana Babubelig is that the towels were clean but they were clearly old with stains in them. Villa offers the guests both white towels to use in the villa and striped towels to use in the beach.
Beach nearby (200-300m) the villa is not so pretty, with dark sand and no services or cafes. We took a taxi to Sanur beach or to seminyak or Kuta beach every day. Beaches in the east cost of Nusa Dua were disappointment and not good for snorkeling.
Just across the street is a proper massage place that offers decent Balinese massage (1h 50 000 rupiah) and pedicure (45 000 rupiah). Close by is also an ATM and next to it a Naughty Nuri's ribs place. Ribs are fine but the place is crowded in the evenings and it is a bit overpriced. Note that minimum payment with credit card in Naughty Nuri's is 800 000 rupiah!
Right next door is a cafe where you can order breakfast, sandwiches and wraps. The service is slow and tiny wraps with french fries cost 42 000 rupiah. Queens Tandoori is a decent indian food place.
A great place to shop top quality bikinis, swimwear, tops and underwear is 69slam, a Balinese brand. The other good place for beach wear is Surfer Girl (Jl Legian 138) that has Quicksilver, Billabong, Rip Curl and other famous brands on top of their own Surfer Girl brand. Both have online-store as well.
