Our 4 nights stay with Pandan Tree villas was good. There are many things need to be upgraded. We love the villa but there are many little things that we wish could been better.
We love the nature feel in our villa, nice pool, nice small garden and dining/living room. There weren't much noise at all in this little villa. They have 3 types of villa with different names, our villa was villa prana. Pretty nice one!
The few things that needed to upgrade: Would be nice to have at least 2 glasses in the toilet so we could put our toothbrushes and toothpaste. Mosquitoes repellent are most needed when you stay in a villa with a lot of grass and trees. We bought our own mosquitoes repellent that cost us only Rp. 3000-4000. I think it wouldn't hurt for the owner to provide that simple equipment in the villa. (the burning kind of repellent). I wouldn't mind paying them if they had it in the room. but that's one basic need for the clients. lamps in the room perhaps needs a little more dusting as i could see them with naked eye and some spider webs. Many red ants too but since we are in the nature type of villa, what can they do about it :) lastly, there were a few drops of "Poo" (god knows where they came from: Maybe cats) in the garden around the pool area. We stayed 4 nights and they cleaned the villa everyday but sadly they did not do anything with the "Poo". It was there from day 1 til day 4.
We had massage in the room too, my mother in law and myself. One of the girl (perhaps the more experience one) seemed to choose who she wanted. as soon as she sees my mother in law (who's an european), she asked the less experience one to be with me. The experienced one told me to do the massage in the same room together with my mother in law. I couldn't imagine to be on the same bed doing the massage. It's not like we didn't have 2 rooms. so why one room all together? wouldn't it be a little too crowded? Something that kept me thinking why...
I hope they could change a little so client will enjoy the stay too.
Note that the place is hard to find. Most taxi driver do not know exactly where to locate. You will need GPS in order to get there. Or better yet, just ask the driver from the villa.

The villa is north of Seminyak town off the main roads so is quiet and relaxing. The property is fairly new (<1yr as of 2013) and well maintained - you get exactly what is shown in the photo's. Local amenities are minimal in the surrounding villages except small stalls selling bare essentials although it is a short drive to Seminyak & beach. The villa staff & manager are always on hand or at the end of a phone line to help to the extent of coming out to pick us up from dinner at 1030pm after a long day out touring the island.
NOT advisable to drive yourself unless you're young & reckless - driving manners, habits and discipline are scary!!!
A mixture of relaxing & island sight seeing for 4 days was excellent.
Villa owner/manager can arrange all necessary transport arrangments at reasonable costs.
