“what more can you wish for....”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

'Tired after a 15 hour flight and a 2.5 hrs drive you find yourself back in paradise! How great life can be. The view, the house, the loveliest hosts and personell you can wish for, the house, the pool...I still miss it everyday!
The next day: massage session with Pak Soenaria, yoga and a pedicure...total relaxation.
During our 3 week stay in Bali we came back another 2 times for a few days. Villa Flow became our oasis of tranquility in a sometimes very busy Bali.

This August we went for the second time to Villa Flow. It is a magnificant place to be.
As soon as you enter the gate you will know, this is little paradise. The owners of the villa and the staff make you feel very welcome.
The rooms are spacious and very tastfully furnished. Especially the bathroom, big, clean and with a great shower. And then there is the food! Never eaten and tasted something like this before. Loved it, even breakfast is really special.
This was the second time in Villa Flow, but there will be a next for sure.

Villa Flow was definitely one of the best places we stayed at in Bali, if not the best. It is in East Bali near Amlapura, which is very quiet, and yet there are still numerous things to do. The property has a beautiful view of the ocean and the Coconut House, where we stayed, is spacious yet not too big. The swimming pool is lovely and the surroundings are lush and green. The food was excellent, it is very healthy and, depending on the menu, good value. The owners are very friendly. They also own a small beachfront property which is totally relaxing and has a beautiful view. They have bicycles you can use, and they can also arrange for rice-field trekking, which is very nice! We would highly recommend staying at Villa Flow!

This summer we visited Villa Flow during our holiday on Bali. We really had a great time!

The room, with king size bed, was very nicely decorated. The interior is quite modern with an Asian twist and the bathrooms makes you want to take a bath twice a day!

If you can appreciate organic and tasteful food - which is prepared three times a day if you want – Villa Flow is really a place for you. We liked it so much (the fresh fruit juices are delicious, as well as the Bircher muesli, the different sort of salads and the plates with fresh fish!) that we ate almost every evening at Villa Flow. Next to that Serge and Inge – the owners of Villa Flow – also know many good restaurants relatively nearby.

And I should not forget the superb service from the Villa Flow staff. They are so nice and can arrange so much for you (transport, rice field walk, a lunch with a breathtaking view at Penny’s place etc.)

In the garden the yoga house is located; where you can have very nice yoga sessions as well as great massages. I really recommend to take a massage. It is very nice and very reasonable priced as well; I actually took 4 of them.

My husband took one of the mountain bikes and cycled around the area. There are some spectacular views and if you just cycle down the hill you are at the (black sand) beach.

Also the impressive water palace (Tirta Gangga) is really nearby. And because the area is not as touristic as most other parts of Bali, the local people are still really genuine interested in you and try to have a nice conversation with you.

I can also highly recommend the small jewelry shop which is nearby Villa Flow. The owner is very friendly and you pay half the price as you will paid in for example Ubud. He is so exciting about his work that he is very pleased to show you his small ‘atelier’ where he makes all the jewelry’s himself.

We will definitely come to stay here again.

Coming here is like visiting friends in Bali...if you have friends who have fantastic villas in Bali. In case you don't, Villa Flow is a little paradise in East Bali. The villa itself is stunning, and the vibe is relaxed and welcoming. The food was healthy and delicious and Serge and Inge were helpful hosts.
Make sure you do the rice field walk nearby and visit White Sand Beach.

Seeking Indonesian atmosphere, evading the increasing continental concrete settlements, I picked up a after diving illness and we were just yearning for a place of relaxation yet finding ourselves well into "Indonesia" and "Bali" vicinity.
Serge and Inge totally succeeded in taking their time to gradually building literally brick by brick building this oasis of tranquility, esthetic brilliance and breathing of comfort meeting sustainability.
Nothing uptight yet overwhelming in 'feeling good'.
Rooms are not only clean, they are well designed, place with great views and feel like a tiny home. The bathroom for instance is in every sense a pleasure to enter.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served as if you are a guest in their home, yet you do not feel obliged to behave like a visitor.
Much of the food comes from the paradise like garden in which they grow organic fruits and vegetables, without feeling like a hipster with a mission... The pure and tasty stuff.
Might you want to make a trip to White Sand beach, The Charlie's Chocolate Factory or the Water Palace... Or maybe you need a safe driver? All is available in good harmony and fare price.
And that is the very surprise; it is worth every penny and does not 'cost you the world'.
Recommending it is an understatement.

Room Tip: Gently ask Serge and Inge about the rooms and availability. There is no such thing as a bad room.
