This villa was pure paradise.
We stayed for 5 days which wasn't long enough as the setting in lovely gardens and the separate accomodation for our family of 11 people was all very private. The pool that was situated at the bottom of the large eating, lounging, entertainment area was amazing and our family spent many hours in it. The staff under Putu's management was great.
Thank you Michael for making the booking so easy and the communication excellent.
This villa we have recommended to friends and we will continue to do so.

We stayed for a week with our extended family to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. The villa is spacious, with lovely gardens, beautiful rooms, and the pool is big and fantastic.
The manager Putu and the staff are wonderful, friendly and nothing is ever a problem - we felt very looked after. Great food in the villa, and knowledge of nice restaurants for when you want to head out.
It really is just as good as the pictures! So relaxing, luxurious and very reasonably priced.

My husband and I had the great pleasure of taking our family to Bali for a holiday. Seven adults and four children stayed in Villa Menari for 10 nights and it was amazing.

Dealing with Michael the owner from start to finish was easy as he promptly replied to emails and answered any questions.

The villa was exactly as described on the website although I must say in real life it is better than the photos show.

Each family had their own private villa for sleeping and the meals, pool and service were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble.

A special mention must go to Putu who goes to any length to ensure your daily needs are met. Our three year old grandchild had a fall on the tiled floors and unfortunately put her tooth through her lip and needed to go to hospital to have it stitched and as Putu had finished for the day he arranged for a car to go to the hospital and wait to bring them back to the villa. He was very caring to all of the children and even carried our nine month old around. He certainly does an exceptional job.

Thanks again to Putu and all the staff for a great holiday.

We all would love to come back to Villa Menari.

Our group of 10, (adult family and friends) have just returned from an 8 night stay in Villa Menari to celebrate my brother’s 50th birthday.
All communication with Michael (the owner) was both prompt and seemless. Michael was always quick to answer my many questions in the lead up to our stay. Upon booking, the deposit was made via bank transfer and then the balance was paid a couple of weeks before our stay.
The villa is located in the Umalas area which we were told is popular amongst the expat community. We loved it! It was close enough to the busyness of Seminyak & Petitenget (10 min drive) but meant that each day we could return to our tranquil retreat to wind down. We also loved the view of the rice paddies scattered around the Umalas.

The property itself is huge and is set up to focus around an amazing infinity pool. Whilst others have commented that the pool was a little on the warm side, we all thought the temperature of the pool was perfect. More than once a day we found ourselves meeting poolside for an early morning swim before breakfast or a late afternoon beer and canapes. The 4 sleeping pavilions are neatly placed around the edge of the property. Villa Lambada is closest to the communal area, Pavilion Salsa and is the only two level pavilion on site. The rest of the pavilions are single level with huge bedrooms and bathrooms making Villa Menari perfect for 5 couples. Villa Samba also has a huge lounge area which can double as a bedroom allowing room for another couple or at least 2 children. This does mean sharing the bathroom though.

We cannot praise the staff enough and we were all sad to say goodbye. Putu and his team did an awesome job. They catered to our every need with absolute perfection. Every morning we were spoilt with a delicious and promptly cooked breakfast. No request was too hard, in fact after tasting Putu’s beef rending on our first night at the Villa, it was decided by all that it was so delicious some of us even requested it on toast for breakfast some mornings. Crazy Australians!
We also ordered dinner from the villa menu on two nights and the food was delicious and very well priced.

Two 7 seater vans are provided for your use. Putu and Wayan are there to drive you anywhere you want to go. From shopping trips into Seminyak, Kuta or Legian to daily outings to Singaraja, Uluwatu, and Ubud to evening dinner out. Having the two cars with such a large group was fantastic as it meant we all didn’t have to do the same thing at the same time everyday. You will just need to pay for petrol, parking and entry to some tourist sites (all super cheap in Bali).

All in all, our stay at Villa Menari was fantastic and we would definitely stay there again. Thank you Michael and your team for helping make our 8 night long 50th birthday celebration so special!
