Villa Flow
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2013

In February we spend our last 3 l days of our vacation at Villa Flow. Although we were not really happy in terms of weather it was a special experience . Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff of Villa Flow. They offered us immediately a nice cup of herbal tea and gave us all the information we needed during our stay. We found ourselves in a beautiful , peaceful surrounding which was very different from what we had experienced the last 4 weeks. The garden really is worthwhile visiting specially with a staff member who knows everything about the growing of fruits and vegetables which are very important because of serving organic meals if possible out of their own garden. Villa Flow, their rooms, the common areas, terraces are style full furnished and at the same time they give you a relaxed feeling. A must is also a massage and a yoga session. Fantastic!
In short , Villa Flow was after our interesting, busy round trip a fantastic, relaxed ending thanks to the whole staff and the owners of Villa Flow.

Thank Jan S

This is a true getaway in Bali.. a real gem, one of those special places you didn't realise still exist..
With spectacular views of the coastline and ocean below, with not another building in site you really feel you are in the depths of paradise (which you are), with majestic mount Agung behind you and surrounded by lush greenery.
The Villas are build to quality standards, clean and new. Dinners on the roof top terrace are very special, almost Mediterranean.. Th'e food, mostly made from ingredients taken from Villa Flow's own organic gardens really are special and cleverly cooked, meals were a welcome surprise during our stay, really healthy and tasty and enjoyable. We came with the family and it was great fun for the kids with a kid friendly pool and hors of fun exploring the gardens.
Thanks you Villa Flow, we shall be back soon :)

In April we had the opportunity to spend some time at Villa Flow. In retrospect this proved to be a very pleasant intermezzo during our roundtrip in Indonesiá. Although Bali is pretty crowded, Seraya/Villa Flow is an oasis.The view is magnificent, the swimming pool is great/full size dimension, the staff is service minded, They make you feel " at home". We visited the garden with Mahgku, the professional gardener, all vegetable you get is biologicallly grown. The kitchen is of high cuisine standard. We just felt relaxed. By the way don't forget to undergo a full body massage by their qualified masseur. Afterwards you feel pretty younger. Even you can make a scroll to their own piece of land near the beach. We hope to enjoy this place once more.

I've spent last weekend at Villa Flow and was looking for a place to relax and enjoy the nature around. By sunday lunchtime, I was thinking how to postpone my flights to stay a couple of days more!!
The place is amazing and surely away from the 'commercial' Bali, even if just a couple of hours drive from the airport. The service was amazing and the facilities are great: spacious and luxurious rooms, a couple of terraces to enjoy the nice weather, everything decorated with local handcraft and art pieces.
The food is a paradise of its own: with almost everything produced in their garden, this organic kitchen is rich and tasty yet light and healthy. Paying a visit to the garden is mandatory: it is unbelievable how much grows there and the dedication of the owners and staff to it.
The staff was always available and everything came right on time - they will arrange a driver for you, book massage (WOW and what a massage!) ask about your preference for next day's breakfast, and so on.
The yoga session in the morning is another must, done under a tent with the garden and the sea in the horizon, the master will take the participants at their own pace so that everyone feels comfortable and enjoying.
I will certainly come back to Villa Flow and this time plan for a few more days - from the time you walk in the door until you leave, this is the best place I've ever stayed for wellness of body and mind.
One final (and very important) note: the owners built the house themselves and still dedicate entirely to offer the best experience possible. There are certain rules which are simply unique: e.g. when we had a power cut early in the evening, the generators were not turned-on; the noise would be against the concept of being at Villa Flow! (if necessary, of course, the use of generators is available).

My girlfriend and I arrived to a dusty patch of farmland in east Bali at night after traveling from Ubud. We asked the driver twice if this was actually the right spot as we saw no evidence that our hotel might be close. A wooden door on the south end of the uneven lot was the only possible entry. We opened the door and were awestruck. Bougainvillea framed a series of steps leading down to outdoor lounges, dining area and pools. The staff was incredibly warm and The owners and their children made us feel like we were part of the family. We sat by the pool during the day and enjoyed delicious meals will a real authentic home cooked taste. The last night another guest brought a guitar out prompting Serge, the owner to bring out his guitar. 7 of us drank beer, played guitar and sang on the upper terrace until midnight. It was a great night. Thanks to Serge and his wife for carving out a piece of paradise in an already stunning part of the world. Thanks.

I travelled two months and during my trip this was one of the most beautiful and relaxings spots I experienced. The beautiful green surroundings are worth to be discovered by bike. The owners have two mountainbikes which you can take for the whole day to make trackings through the ricefields and to White beach. Seraya itself shows the real Balinese life and try to pick up that rythm; easygoing, go to bed early and enjoy the nature's music early in the morning. If you like massages..please try here. An amazing experience of a local man which I will categorize as "the best massage" of Bali.

Room Tip: The coconut villa is the best
