Wow....is your first thought as you enter the villa and see the most amazing pool and breathtaking view of the water. Photos can not do it justice. It is truly the most amazing view. Mornings spent watching the sunrise over the water and all the fishing boats heading out. Mornings spent swimming in the huge infinity pool and evenings with a glass of wine on the bale listening to the sound of the water. It is paradise in Amed. The villa is huge and so comfortable. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff, so friendly and welcoming. Thank you Dirta and Komang. Our driver Ketut a big thank you for transport to and from the villa. And an extra special thank you to the lovely Wayan for looking after us so well and the delicious meals.
Thank you to Theriesa and Jonathan for all the extra helpful information given to us about the villa and the area. We would definitely love to come back.
Myself and my wife stayed here for our honeymoon and I personally can't think of anywhere better that we could have stayed. The villa itself surpassed expectations and the photos don't truly express the space that it has to offer. We felt at home straight away with the kind welcome of Wayan, who's English is great and is fully understanding of any personal needs or requirements for your stay. Ketut, our driver with a cheeky smile, liked to hum and sing to the radio and it was really interesting getting to know him and his family, in the car and at his wife's warung.
It's hard to put into words the feeling you get when you wake up to the sun rising on the horizon combined with the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. Both myself and my wife have agreed to do our best to stay here again.
We have recently returned from our second stay at the wonderful Villa Celagi and are already planning our next visit.
The villa is fantastic - plenty of living space indoors, but it is the outdoor areas and pool overlooking the ocean that make it absolute perfection for a relaxing holiday. The photos cannot do it enough justice - walking onto the verandah when you first arrive is breathtaking.
Other than the villa and view, it is the people that make this an extra special place. Wayan looked after us so well. She is able to help with any requests (need a scooter, local info etc) and is a fantastic cook - we ate in most evenings. Komang ensures the gardens and pool look wonderful and Ketut is able to provide transfers and day trips - he has a wealth of information not only on the local area but also the history of Bali. He and his wife run the local di Lipah Warung, which I highly recommend.
The owners Theresia and Jonathan kept in touch to ensure all was well with our stay - my only negative comment is that they own this villa and I don’t .
If you are reading this review as you are thinking of booking Villa Celagi, then just do it. You will not regret spending time here.
Villa Celagi is a dream,
1 min after arrival, we ask, whether we have to go out for anything!
The Villa is huge, about 400m² on a ground of about 2000m². We had a big private pool and a private ocean access. The whole property is very well kept by Wayan (Thank you for you excellent cooking and service) and Dirta (Manager) and a private gardener (Koman). A lot of activities, sailing, motorbike rent, tour to the volcano, and and and, can be organized very reliable by the staff. We really recommend it highly and will come back there on our next Bali trip.
Thanks also to Theresiea and Jonatan, the always keep contact to us by mail (only don't know who wrote) and care about very much.
From the moment you walk in the front door and smack eyes on the view out to the ocean you just know you are on a good thing. This Villa is huuuuuuge! And so is the pool! Others have said it, but I have to say it again - the photos don't do it justice (and they are wonderful photos). Plenty of room to move. Superb choice of music to play and books to read. Spotlessly clean. The two bedrooms are very separate so privacy is assured. Meals cooked for you are plentiful and delicious. The kitchen is massive. You can open the entire front of the villa which overlooks the ocean which allows are beautiful breeze to come through. There are plenty of fans and air con in the rooms. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.
We absolutely loved out stay at Villa Celagi. The whole experience was seemless from booking, question answering to the stay itself. We are still missing Wayan and her amazing breakfasts not to mention the Villa itself, the amazing pool and that view! If you are considering this property you will not be disappointed. As other reviews have stated there are a number of steps as the property is on a hillside so I would say it would be less suitable for less able bodied elderly and young children. An absolutely amazing spot to relax and really unwind.
Food wise, having sampled many of the local warungs our pick is Warung Celagi which is about a 10min scooter ride away in Amed, amazing curries and yummy sate and extremely reasonably priced although there are still some good options within 5 minutes if you dont want to travel that far and you can also ask Wayan to prepare a meal for you, she is an amazing cook. Wayan and the team are a wealth of information and can organised everything for you (bike hiring, snorkel gear, fishing trips, drivers etc etc). We will definitely be back.
