It was a bliss all throughout
our stay! Private and secure. Every part of the villa
gave a warm and comforting feel. Spent most of
the time outside on the romantic gazebo by the
pool. We spent our breakfast in bed there, had
soothing massages, even retiring through the
night. We marvelled on the ocean view from the
living room and sunbeds on an elevated platform
outside. Did a handful of sightseeing, hiking and
trekking on Bali's tourist attractions.
We've picked this villa for our honeymoon and were so glad we've made such a choice! We were looking for quite place where we can enjoy each other and we were lucky to find it! The villa is just gorgeous! It's built in tropical style and well designed. It's such a pleasure to have a shower enjoying sunbath as well, as the shower is open. Living room is facing the ocean, so nice to read a book there or have a glass of fresh juice. There is an infinity pool in the villa and it's amazing as it seems like you swim in a huge clean drop of water! Every evening we came down to the secluded beach to see the sunset.
We've spent 23 days of March 2013 on this beautiful villa. Thank you for hospitality to Anna and Alex, they've helped us a lot in organizing our vacation. The place is great to stay with the beloved one and relax from rush of the city. The villa is just fantastic, with the infinity pool surrounded by tropical garden. We were happy to stay in the villa, but this was our first time so far from home, so we went on couple of tours around the island. The gorgeous home reef is just in front of the villa and we were swimming and snorkeling every day. It was quite long vacation, but we didn't want to leave. Highly recommended place to stay!
Living in Seoul, South Korea my husband and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and have a quiet relaxing vacation. We found that with Octopus Villa.
We spent a quiet relaxing week there. We took advantage of the meal plan and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food, the fish and fruit were always fresh and delicious. The volcano hike was worth the effort and the coral reef was much more than we expected it to be. The villa was comfortable and inviting. Having a private pool made it feel much more secluded and gave us the opportunity to watch bats coming in to drink in the evenings. It was also a nice way to cool off in the afternoons.
Alex, Anna and all of the staff are very friendly and were beyond helpful. Without a doubt my husband and I will be staying there in the future! It was everything we were hoping for and so much more.
We are an Australian couple living in HKG and this was our 10th holiday to Bali.
Our wish this time was for a more relaxed local style of holiday so we chose the Octopus villas for our week away.
After reading all the positive reviews, we had high expectations and they were all met or exceeded.
Anna and Alex and the staff were just amazing and so helpful. We followed a lot of their suggestions - waterfall - volcano hike - local early morning market - water palace etc. so much to do, or so little. The choice is yours. One thing not to be missed is the sunrises and sunsets.
The reef straight out from the villa was spectacular for snorkelling which we enjoyed most days.
The daily massage was just so relaxing and they come to you
We were also pleased that we took the daily food package for the week.The food was simple, fresh, and just delicious, especially the home baked bread, and the Indonesian dinners.
If you wish, you can also wander along the beach and try a place or two for a sunset drink and a bite to eat.
The villa is a three hour drive. Once you leave the chaos and traffic of Denpasar, you will be driven through some beautiful scenery en route to your villa.
Don't judge the place by their driveway (this seems to be the style up north!!!)
When Anna or Alex open the door to your well appointed villa, you will feel immediately at home.
Highlights: Too many to mention, but for us, sipping a glass of wine, watching the sunset and the tide coming in, was perfect for us .
Living in Shanghai, I was looking for the perfect place for a vacation away from it all. I just wanted a quiet beach with very little around and the opportunity to completely relax. I found that and more when my fiance and I spent a week with Anna and Alex. For starters, the property is amazing! The open plan of the living quarters forces your focus where it should be; on the unbelievable location. The comfortable but minimalist furnishing was great to sleep in but otherwise gently nudged you out into a sublime jungle/ocean paradise. The pool and (for lack of a better word) cabana area was beautiful, the chairs comfortable, and the pool clean and at a comfortable temperature.
Outside of the fantastic facilities, the range of staggeringly affordable activities. The reef laying just offshore was amazing. The convenience of being able to walk 10 meters out of your villa, don equipment, and experience such amazing biodiversity was fantastic. One of the real treats for us was a dive on the reef with Alex. This was the first beachside vacation resort I have found that provided complete novices ample options in addition to experienced divers. We followed many of Anna’s recommendations and really enjoyed a visit to the local weaving factory near Les. The owner toured us around and introduced us to his practices and employees. We were very impressed with his operation and the integration with the local community and environment.
The meals were fantastic. I cannot say enough about the delicious, lite, and satisfying meals we enjoyed and the staff who prepared and served them. From banana leaf wrapped chicken to fresh caught fish everything was superb and served by the incomparable staff. Both Anna and the entire staff were able to pull off a high level of service which was neither smothering or over the top with paramount grace and the ever-present smile the Balinese are so well known for.
We could not be more comfortable recommending a stay here to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing time in paradise.
