My husband and I staying here for 6 nights and could easily have stayed longer. We spent 2 of those days not leaving the villa other than to go for a stroll into the local village and amongst the rice paddies.Easy to fill in a day here with early morning swim, walk and chatting with the locals, more swimming, reading,sleeping, delicious dinner with glass of wine watching the amazing sunsets. The villa itself is beautiful, spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom is particularly good with a choice of indoor or outdoor showers with an outdoor bath as well. The pool is the standout on the property with the only negative for us is that there was not enough shade. A very small outdoor umbrella is provided and there is some dappled shade from the Frangipani tree. The view is amazing. We enjoyed our breakfasts in our villa and in the "salon". The staff here are excellent, thank you Desak and Nyoman who looked after us very well. We enjoyed practicing our Bahasa Indonesian with you. I don't know how the claims of the villa being 15 min from Ubud and despite using different drivers and different routes we took 25-30mins each time. For us this was still very much worth the trip to be in this splendid location.
