While we had an idea what to expect while staying at Mandalay Hidaway it surpassed all expectations. We were met as we deplaned and rushed through customs in record time. Our driver was there to meet us and took us directly to the villa. Upon arrival the entire house staff was waiting outside the villa to greet us with a refreshing drink. The house is amazing situated out in the middle of the rice fields and staff did their best to pamper us. Rida is head of the household and she was so helpful. She recommended restaurants and helped change money and was there to answer our questions. They were all there to say goodbye and it seemed as though they would miss us. Everyone was very sweet.
Our driver was the best I've ever had. He constantly watched over us no matter where we were. He was our guide and our friend. He was always there no matter what time of day or night that we needed him and he watched over us while were out clubbing to make sure we were fine. When we left as he was dropping us off he said he wanted to apologize for anything bad that might have happened to us or anything bad that anyone might have said to us. Nothing like that happened but it was nice to know he wanted us to leave Bali with no bad memories. It was just a very wonderful overall experience. I would not hesitate to stay in Mandalay Hideaway again.
