“Great Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

We recently get to visit Bali once again since January due to a friend's visit. She has never been to Bali before and so her first experience in the land of the gods. The verdict is...she loves it and had planned to be back in 2 months' time. Nothing strange for us cos Bali is a place that either you love it to death or you just visit once. The people I have spoken with on the way back told me they love Bali and every year since they first step foot on this island, GOD has make them feel peace and human;)
It's a place to be oneself, do whatever you want, rest and relax.

This time, we check on new villas and found one very reasonably priced. It was the Grove Villas in Umalas area. It is near to kerobokan area after Seminyak main town.
It is remote but we saw many villas along the way. They are just frantically building more and more villas cos of the demand.

There are 5 villas altogether on this estate. It was huge and reasonably priced.

The staff were hospitable without being a nuisance. They practically left us alone unless we need them.

This is a 2 storey 2 bedroom unit.
It was good for a family or group of friends. The price include only one breakfast on the first day. We stay 3 nites.There was no F&B outlet and no main reception. Guess these villas are privately owned and managed by one party. The breakfast could have been better. Just toast,eggs and tea,no coffee but we did bring our own coffee.;)

There is a good size pool but we were so busy getting out all day that we did not have chance of lazing by the pool...;(

The room was big enough with a separate bathroom and closet area. The master bedroom has a desk and a bathtub and a TV but the guest room does not have a TV and only a standing shower. It was fine for us. It was clean overall.

Security at the first villa entrance. This villa is the most noisy cos it is near to the local housing and security post...;(

The living room and kitchen were the best places; huge sofas, big TV, DVD player, table top for cooking, huge refrigerator, oven.utensils, big dining room, plenty of cloaset and drawer space, etc...wow!
It was huge. There was a glass door between the outdoor and living room and kitchen area and it kept mosquitoes away. The rest of the villas have open concept which is dangerous if you have little children as they may wander into the pool. We hope the owner may consider closing off the area with a door.
Good Bed mattress and good interior. Each room is big for 3 pax. Some can even sleep in the living room sofa and day bed. It can house 6 to 8 persons.

Only set backs were:
Poor breakfast
Airconditioning was weak but we did get them to fix it. They did and we were happy.
Showerhead of one room not working well.
Noise from outside-it is a villa to rest but located near the road and local housing does not do any good. The window in the bathroom must be sealed. Otherwise, every morning and nite, you hear people talking loudly and play soccer and kids crying...;(
There were mosquitoes so you need to get them to use the electric mosquito repellent.
The TV reception gets interrupted intermittenly. Believe cos it is further from town, the satelite signal may not be perfect.You will be concerned if you are a couch potato head.;)
You need to have a car cos it is not within walking distance to any town, etc.

However, if you seriously do want to rest, cook at home and treat it like your home, this is the place for you.Otherwise, you will need a full time driver. The distance also makes you less willing to get out once you are home.10 minutes drive to a nearby town.

Overall a no fuzz, long stay independent stay villa.;) Would definitely stay there if we have a longer trip.

Agoda has good rates.:0

Room Tip: Don't take first unit as near the local housing.

A mini reunion for a group of 6 in our late twenties, we enjoyed the peaceful settings surrounding the Villa (if you stay make sure you go to Bien Yiue down the road).
The pool was bigger than the photos show and the rooms and bathroom had ample space.
Only slight downfall were the showers, but they did the job.
