My experience here was quite close to everything that I hoped my first Bali villa experience would be like.
The villa itself is not particularly fancy by any means, but it has rustic charm and everything you need to ensure your stay is comfortable. The value is also great since it can accommodate so many people.
The property and garden is so lush, beautiful and perfectly maintained. My favourite was the view of the mountains in the back.
- Lots of space! Spacious rooms and outdoor washrooms, spacious garden
- Nice pool with loungers and day bed (great for massages)
- Wonderful and accommodating staff
- Great views
- You feel very safe, there are multiple gates and walls
- Decent wifi for where you are
- Putra was wonderful
- Real sense of peace and tranquility
Good to know:
- It is quite remote and quite the trek from the airport (3 hours) but this is what we wanted and knew were were going to be far from the action, so isn't necessarily a con
- Black sand beach that may not be for everyone's taste to swim in
- Hard beds and pillows
- Food can get a little repetitive, but based on the location everything is bought daily from the local market and options are limited. Again it is what it is.
- Hot Springs tour is not quite as described in the tour guide...more like a warm public pool
Overall we had a wonderful time here and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an authentic villa in Bali!
