The Green Chaka Villas were our first introduction to Bali and what a wonderful introduction it was. I think the sole most important thing to mention about the GCV was the owner Chandra, and his attentive and kind small staff. Every one of our needs was met, and every question answered. Excellent customer service and we would definitely return if in Seminyak again.
Location: The first time finding Green Chaka could be difficult but since we had a driver pick us up from the airport, it was no problem. I would definitely recommend getting picked up, even though it was a little pricey, it was well worth it. This little paradise is down a long alley, and then down another long pathway through the main gate. The wonderful part about being a little removed is the privacy (we were also the only guests at the villa during our stay!) but also the lack of street noise. Walking into town on many occasions, I would not want to stay at some of the guesthouses along the main road. The walk to local restaurants is anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on where you want to eat.
Tip: Herman, a driver you can hire through Green Chaka, is a trustworthy and friendly individual who charges a fair price upon request.
Transportation: We mostly walked from our villa in and around Seminyak and the beach. We did hire Herman to take us to Tanah Lot, and I would recommend hiring a taxi or driver for longer trips. We also hired Herman to take us to Ubud, although this resulted in a couple of unexpected stops at tourist galleries, one for silver, and one for coffee. Interesting but way overpriced.
Breakfast: Breakfast came free with our stay and it was simple and delicious. Fresh fruit, fruit juice, coffee or tea, and eggs with toast. It was available when we woke up and it was nice to sit on our ground floor terrace by the pool.
Amenities: We stayed in a ground floor bungalow and it was perfect! Two steps out the front door was the pool, very clean and refreshing. The room was private with curtains and very nicely decorated. Chandra has definitely spent some time making the villas into a beautiful home and his care and attention to detail show. The shower was spectacular, with a skylight right above, and vines growing down from outside. It felt like I was showering in a jungle!
Cats: The villa has 2 cats, Rama and Shinta and both friendly. If you're like me, villa cats are a bonus when choosing a place to stay!
Thank-you Chandra! Stay in touch and we hope to see you again soon :)
