Well, here I am lying in bed on my last few nights in Bali. During the past month I will have stayed at 7 hotels or villas, and each of them have been unique. There was one that also had these shiny 24” white tile floors where I had forgotten to mention that every morning one would wake up to a ton of caterpillars.
But not in this place, and it’s only 8 minutes away by scooter.
The configuration here is sort of like a country clubhouse with staff buildings.there is a huge kitchen dining room living room open concept room with a continuous balcony across to one bedroom. A definitely adequate 2 level pool surrounded by grass and tropical trees, and then a verandah off a larger building of two separate bedrooms facing the living room section from across the pool.
This building is done in a bleached stressed wood look and everything is so bright.
This villa has the best main building lighting from all the places I have stayed.
There is not a lot of shade in the pool region other than the large protected area under the roof on the verandas on either side of the pool.this means that now, in February, this has been the warmest pool to date.almost two warm.
The villa is far enough off the main drag that quiet is possible
It is not close to the beach
The lighting provided for reading in bed is very dim LED’s.
This has a very crisp, but country feel.
One thing I have noticed in ALL the villas We have stayed at is that there are no kitchen cabinets above the counters. In other words , they have all created a very open look by not narrowing down the wall space above.
What this means is that you are always bending down , looking into deeper lower cupboards with too large 20” doors to get a glass, cutlery, plate etc, where normally the lowers would be pots and pans.
Also, because these doors are almost all 20”, they are too heavy and they strain the hinges. So the doors sag and do not always close flush . As well,with two people working in the kitchen on opposite sides, with both doors open it gets in the way.
