We stayed at villa Armena In June for 2 days after a friends wedding for some extra time on our own in this beautiful country. Villa Armena did not disappoint. On arrival we were greeted by the two owners and upgraded to a suite which we was over the moon with. The room was absolutely stunning our bed was turned down every evening and we was left a surprise of homemade biscuits. The restaurant is very expensive but totally worth it. Yes there isn't views from the restaurant area but you dont need this as there is a large window where you can see the chefs cooking which we loved. The food was amazing cooked perfectly and the owners mother was our waitress and she is just the nicest lady ever and knows her wine!! We are normally Rioja drinkers but she introduced us to some beautiful red wines during our stay which really complemented the food.
The pool we had practically to ourselves. Yes the owners are not there constantly asking if you want drinks but they do pop down now again during the day. Remember they are trying to let you enjoy your holiday on your own rather than keep pestering. We was more than happy with the service.
The lunch menu isn't as great as the evening food this maybe as the chef is not in till the evening which is not a problem. Most of the other guests were out in the day so it was only us about at lunch however on our second day the owners mother offered us a pasta that wasn't on the menu and that was gorgeous.
Our overall experience was Villa Armena was the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We are now looking for a hotel for our honeymoon next year in Bali and its going to be so hard to find anywhere as good as Villa Armena we should of left it till the honeymoon.
We Both wish the owners all the best and good luck with there new addition to the family who is due soon. We will be back one day again and will recommend your hotel to all our friends and family.
