Villa Naora, WOW! First impressions – warm welcomes from the team with BIG smiles. The people and the place - stunning!! Every detail exceeded our expectations from the welcome by all the staff, the villa décor and facilities, the beautiful pool at our doorstep, the great service and yummy food, to the activities and tours we enjoyed during our time. We can’t thank the staff enough at the Villa - Ketut, Kadek, Iluh, Agus, Sudan and Artanus . Nothing was ever too much trouble. Their warm and friendly service was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. We found everything easy and seamless from the initial inquiry to booking and payment through to our actual stay. The hospitality included a call from Ana, the villa owner, to check how our stay was going, which was lovely and meant we could rave about our stay in person. For people who enjoy a local experience and a good walk we recommend the guided 4 hour walk through the local villages and rice fields in the mountains. This was a highlight of our stay and the local guide was exceptional, especially his knowledge of the plants and locals foods being grown across the valley. There is a fair bit of up and down on this walk and sometimes the track is a little steep and rough, but its moderate to easy depending on your level of fitness. Certainly worth the time if you’re looking to do something a bit more active and experience a bit more of the local community life in North Bali. The snorkel and dive at Menjangan Island was majestic – beautiful warm, clear water and great fish life. The dolphin tour departing from the beach in front of the villa is incredible with some of the best dolphin sightings and beautiful scenery from the boat on sunrise. Then there were the massage ladies from Ami’s spa. How can we ever forget their brilliant, amazing hands in making us feel even more relaxed and pampered. Highly recommended as a must do during your stay! The food at the Villa was a definite highlight. We can’t thank Kadek and Iluh enough for cooking us wonderful Balinese style food day after day. What a treat and something we are all still talking about!
We would highly recommend Villa Naora and our stay was rated by all of us as one of the best holidays we have ever had. Travelled as a group of 8 adults and 1 toddler from Australia in April 2014.
