“Amazing place and staff!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and honestly really did not want to leave. Where to start- the location was beautiful, room lovely and the staff fantastic!
We wanted to see the less touristy side of Bali and this place was definitely it. We stayed in one of the new rooms which was great and the views- fantastic. Going to sleep with the sounds of the wildlife was great.

The hotel staff were fantastic and a huge thank you to Anom and team for making the stay so great. They organised a guided tour which was brilliant around the local area, yoga and even a motorbike trip for us which was the highlight of our whole holiday.

The food was delicious. We had breakfast each day on the roof garden, the food was lovely and the service of a 5 star standard. We also had lunch and dinner there twice and each time it didn't disappoint.

The pool was lovely and we almost had it to ourselves the whole time.

The location is off the traditional tourist trail, hence why we went there, but there is so much to do including doing nothing in a stunning location!

This was our favourite place we stayed in Bali and one of my favourite places I have ever stayed. Thanks again Anom and team for a fantastic holiday!

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

We have spent our honeymoon in the beautiful Cepik Villa in a perfect balinese atmosphere. We were completely satisfied with everything. The private suite facilities are 4 star standard. The staff are very helpful, kind and polite. They found the perfect balance between privacy and pampering. The food was great and healthy. The chef prepared the courses according our taste like we requested. Tropical garden, rice fields, mountains, quietness and the pure nature. Breathtaking surrounding. With the speed of the Internet we were happy enough. The swimming pool is available in all day because you don’t have to share it with other 200 guests. Cleanliness, excellent value for your money and unique experience.

Originally we wanted to stay 5 days in the mountains and than 5 days close to the beach. But we couldn’t leave this balinese Paradise so we stayed 10 days in one of the new Roof Garden Suite. We tried many services in the resort eg.: massages, yoga, meditation, car rental with private driver, romantic dinner. We were impressed in every time. Nice, smiling, professional local people give these services with full of heart. It is quite far from the busy tourist destination but with a private driver you can see everything in Bali what you want. We made some all-day tours and later on our driver became our friend. The airport transfer in the middle of the night was also available.

Normally we never go back to the same place twice because The World is big and life is short to see everything. This is the first time that we feel we’ll definitely go back to Cepik Villa.
If you would like to enjoy a peaceful fauna and wonderful nature, in a familiar but professional place, where you can support the local people (instead of big worldwide companies) you should stay at Cepik Villa.

Room Tip: Roof garden suite is new, 4 star standard room facilities, enough privacy, huge and comfortable bed...

We spend 4 nights mid november, with our 2 young children.

Just one afternoon of rain, but we spend it in the swimming pool so we were wet anyway...

The location is really nice, with great views !

Just 2 villas. We stayed in the bigger one, which was large enough for the 4 of us.

Restaurant was good.

We went for a 3 hour walk in the nearby countryside with a local guide. Really interesting. We could also go for a car tour a whole day. Just say where you want to go and enjoy.

The staff was really kind and making we had everything to spend a nice time, which we did.

So thank you all for that !

I was very happy to stay in a hotel owned by a Balinese couple who are very compromised with their community and their culture. Soon they will have two extra modern bedrooms with beautiful view! :) Staff service was excellent, they were ready to help me and pumper me!
If you are looking for peace and quiteness...this place is for you. It is the very last hotel of that road with an amazing view over the rice fields and the country side. Few tourist and many locals in that area. If I go back to Bali, I will definitely go back to Cepik Villa!

This place is fantastic up in the hills of Bali, Beautiful and breathtaking scenery
If you want a relaxing holiday and get away from the hussle and noise of the city this is the place to come
Relax by the pool or do Yoga or go for walks around the rice paddocks it has it all
The Villas are large and spacious
The villa is being extended and the Restaurant is nearly completed and Wow what a scenery you will get over the fields and mountains while you eat when all is finished
Ayu and Ketut have great expectations in the Villa and I wish them all the best
Will go back next year to see the completion of the extra villas and Resturant
Would recommend this place for relaxation
You must remember this is a relaxing place no shops no traffic.

The staff was so friendly couldnt do enough for you and the cook done beautiful meals

Room Tip: Any rooms all rooms are large
