A welcome oasis from the chaos of Seminyak. From the moment we arrived, we were struck by the calmness of the place, the cosy rustic-meets-modern interior and the friendliness of the staff. It felt like being a guest in someone's home, rather than commercial accommodation. The garden and pool areas are especially beautiful, with benches in the hallway outside the rooms, to allow you to sit and enjoy without getting fried by the sun (also for smokers but I'm not one of them): I even sat on our bench outside one night to drink my tea, with nobody else around.
The breakfast was simple but very tasty. We even got a complimentary slice of banana bread each day, which was very yummy. I didn't see it advertised, but it turns out the villa also offer dinner: I was peckish one evening and went into the main lounge to ask for local recommendations; at which point they showed me a list of home-cooked food... available until 20:00 I think.
The rooms were simple and rustic. Ours had a four poster bed and large bathroom, made even more authentic by the creaky wooden floorboards. My only gripe was that the hot water didn't last very long for the shower so two people can't shower consecutively in thermal comfort. This said, it is a minor comment as I'd highly recommend this place and would certainly come back if I'm ever in Seminyak again.More
