We (2 couples) took off from Kuta after finding that we would be stuck in accommodation there for Nyepi (day of silence). After arriving on Gili T the day before, we found that everything was totally booked out. We approached Hotel Vila Ombak and they had 2 rooms available, those being the Akoya Pool Villas.
Well what can I say, they were absolutely fabulous!!!!! Huge king bed, gorgeous outdoor bathroom, huge outdoor private kitchen/eating area, beautiful plunge pool with recliners & chairs to relax in. The whole compound was enclosed with tall wooden fences and secure gates which gave us great privacy. This room was next door to our friends room (same room type) and was interconnected through the tall fencing through another secure wooden gate.
Everything was just perfect, the bed was comfortable, large flat screen tv, large bottles of water replaced daily, lovely soft towels, great air con. Free breakfast and afternoon tea was supplied and it was delightful. Every night on returning to our rooms, the staff had lit outside candles (which looked stunning) and also turned down our beds.
Staff were really good, helpful, friendly and approachable. We were greeted with smiles everywhere we went. Nothing was too much of a problem for them.
We didn't use the hotel swimming pools as we were thrilled with our beautiful & private plunge pool rooms & the beach was only a short walk away.
Yes, this accommodation type/resort was expensive (last minute, busy season/Nyepi day) but I still dream about my stay at Vila Ombak and am making plans to return again soon.
