Having had a stressful year, I was looking forward to my holiday in Bali. And I was not disappointed!
On arrival, the staff were warm and welcoming. They were unobtrusive but were happy to organize any request that I had, including getting my laundry done the next day! Nothing was too much trouble and service was always with a smile.
Nilesh the owner, who lives in Bali goes the extra mile and was able to talk about what Bali has to offer in terms of restaurants and places of interest, etc. On recommendation, I had the opportunity of going for a drink and watching a beautiful sunset at Hotel Ayana.
The Villa was surrounded by overhanging plants which gave the Villa a sense of privacy, an oasis of peace and calm. It was clean, spacious, air conditioned and the ladies cleaned it daily. A well presented villa as described in the website.
Also loved the idea of having a shower with an open roof, it made me feel at one with nature and was quite the contrast from my white tiled bathroom in England.
The locations was great as the shops, cafes and local restaurants are 5 minutes walk from the Villa in Seminyak. The beach is close by with white sandy beaches that provide activities for adults as well as children.
Breakfast was served and you can request for a light breakfast (choices of fruit and toast) or the full works ie bacon, eggs and toast. I had the chef cook an evening meal and was delighted with the food and it was presented in a typical Balinese style, with a smile.
Will recommend this for singles like me needing to recharge your batteries, families, couples and honeymoon couples!!
My stay was most enjoyable and I would urge anyone considering staying in Bali and wanting to experience the full Balinese culture, while enjoying the hospitality of the staff in the Villa, this is the place for you.
