“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed September 19, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent 7 nights at Villa Makara and it is one of the best places we have stayed in Bali. Everything about this villa was amazing. The view was breathtaking, the pool was perfect & only a few steps & your on the beach which has some nice snorkelling spots. The villa is kept immaculate, the bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning quiet & the breakfasts were delicious. The onsite Italian restaurant was a wonderful addition, we ate there most nights as the food was incredible & catered to all tastes. There is more than 1 villa. There are three 1 bedroom villas, a 2 bedroom & a 3 bedroom villa, all private with their own pools & the fantastic view. There is a bar on the beach for a nice quiet afternoon drink & a massage place right next door on the beach. Allen the owner is a great guy who is usually around to make sure things are running smoothly & Bruno the owners Golden Retriever dog is a delight when he comes for a breakfast visit. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone that just wants to relax and enjoy the peace & beauty of Amed.

“Idyllic, peaceful, far from the crowds”

I was looking for a warm, quiet place after one heck of a year. Trawling the lovely places available in Bali, I came across Villa Makara. It was a little more than I planned to spend, but it ticked all the boxes: nearby, warm, hammock, beach, away from main tourist areas.
Alan, the owner, was really communicative. He organised a transfer lift to and from the airport. It's a 3-3.5 hour drive which may seem far but was absolutely worth it.
If I was going again, I would have organised to stop at a big supermarket in Denpasar on the way out because you won't see any of them out in the east and it would have been good to be able to pick up a couple of items that don't turn up in local shops.
So we arrived and Villa Makara was just as represented: beautiful, peaceful and instantly relaxing.
There are a couple of restaurants very close by and then lots more down the road towards Amed, but I ended up doing most of my own cooking which was unexpectedly lovely.
There are virtually no shops anywhere nearby for clothes or touristy knick knacks. This area is almost completely focused on diving. I'm not a diver and actually found it really refreshing to have very little touristy shopping around. I bought my food in little local shops and got great bike taxi service back along the glorious coastline to the villa.
There is a constant sea breeze which keeps the humidity at a minimum and the bugs near non-existent. I walked down on the beach one night and saw a handful of little phosphorescent creatures in the water. It was just perfect!
The men and women working in this set of villas are just lovely. They were accommodating, friendly and really helpful. The villa remained beautifully clean and everything was really well maintained. I found the fly screen on the window really fantastic and slept each night with the window open and the fan above for air movement. So great to not need an air conditioner and hear the ocean so close by!
The kitchen has all the basic cutlery and crockery but be aware - no spices or sauces stocked so if you want to cook with flavour, make sure to pick some up.
If you want peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, Villa Makara is a great place to get it. I had not intended to go back to Bali - too many other amazing places to go - but I think I'll end up back at Villa Makara before long.
