My family and I recently stayed at this great villa for a week. From the beginning the villa manager Putu was very helpful arranging daily activities, cakes and trips throughout Bali.

The villa has a very extensive menu which means you don't have to travel out every day for food if you do not want to. All meals we tried were delicious and well prepared.

The villa is located away from the hustle and bustle around 15 minutes from seminyak, 30 minutes from the airport, 40 minutes from kuta and 50 minutes from Nusa Dua.

Highly recommend the villa for families with young children as Putu and the staff provided a car seat and a cot making it much easier to organise the trip with a 8 month old. The large pool and entertainment area means the whole family can socialise together without ever having to leave the villa complex. The central pavilion is a great outdoor space offering both air conditioned rooms and outdoor areas.

Stayed: February 2016, traveled with family

Hi jervo_14,

A big thank you for your stay at the villa - the staff really enjoyed looking after you all, and it's great you enjoyed Putu's arrangements as well as Iluh's cooking...

Thanks too for taking time to write a review on TA - we welcome your comments and feedback.

I hope the staff get the chance to welcome you back to the villa some day.

Thanks again and all the best, Michael

What an amazing experience for our entire family, from 6 months to over 60 we were all cared for by the team at Villa Menari like we were their family. Through the gate and the villa grounds are stunning, relaxation begins immediately! Nothing was too much trouble for this team, and with the delays we experienced as a result of the volcano this is saying something! You never really need to leave the villa if you don't want to, but when you do having drivers who know where to go, and what else you need to see makes doing so very easy. We can't recommend these guys highly enough, and will certainly revisit them on future stays in Bali.

Room Tip: Our group booked all the rooms, and while there were differences among them, there are no bad rooms!

Hi Matthew M,

Thanks so much for your stay at the villa as well as your comments and feedback. It's great to pass on guests' comments to staff and learn from guest experiences like yours.

I am glad that you had a great stay at the villa and enjoyed your time in Bali in spite of the flight delays brought on by the volcanic ash cloud. It gave you quite a few more days in Bali, hopefully enjoyable ones too, even with the disruptions and hassle you faced.

It was a pleasure to meet you all during this challenging period.

I hope you might make it back to stay with us again some time.

Cheers, Michael

Hi Harry1761,

Long overdue (apologies), but thank you very much for your stay over Xmas at the villa. It's great we could welcome you back for a 2nd stay in the same calendar year...thanks for your return business and confidence to stay with us again with your large family group.

Putu is always doing his very best for guests, and, Iluh never disappoints with her menu although I am of course one of her greatest fans! I am delighted you enjoyed the high level of service we always aim to provide.

The staff and I look forward to welcoming you back to the villa in the future.

With best wishes, Michael

We traveled to Bali late October 2015 for our son Matthews 40th birthday.
He had booked out all the Villas

We originally planned to stay eight nights but due to the volcanic ash and Jetstar flight problems our stay was extended by another nine nights.

We have stayed in 6 Star hotels around the world and Villa Menari Bali are equal to any in their presentation and service.

PuTu and his staff could not be faulted in any way, they were excellent
As a travel guide Putu went that extra mile
As for the food Putu and staff organised a spit roasted pig and a Bali seafood feast both better than most 5 star restaurants in Bali

The Villas and the grounds were immaculate

When our stay had to be extended due to the Volcanic ash and Jetstar no fly policy Michael contacted us straight away and could not have been more helpful he and his entire staff should be congratulated.

If you want to stay in and see the true Bali this is the perfect spot

Room Tip: Our family booked out all villas Villa 1 and 4 poolside Villa 2 and 3 in the garden

This was our eighth visit and like all the previous ones, we enjoyed everything Menari offers. As always Putu was great, the food from Iluh was most enjoyable and the other staff friendly and efficient. Michael as usual was a pleasure to deal with. We have visited Bali many times and stayed in other villas but if there is a vacancy at this villa when we visit we always stay here. I can fully recommend this villa.

Hi BJKIWI,

The biggest thank you to you for your many stays at the villa over the years and I know the staff love to see you again at the villa for your Bali breaks.

We have got to know each other pretty well over the years, and I have always enjoyed catching up with you and your son for a good chat and a beer, and, hope I have the chance to raise a glass with you on your next trip over.

From Putu, Iluh and all the staff, our heartfelt thanks for making Villa Menari your second home in Bali...
