|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Villa Chandra (Balinese - 'Moon') can be something very special if you wish it to be. Sleeping 2 couples with two very individual bedroom experiences. Both of the four poster king-size beds has a spotless white muslin woven canopy netting and are made of elegantly carved teak offering pure hand crafted privacy and solid luxury.
Included in your price is greeting drink, complimentary coffee and tea in the rooms, full breakfast of your choice for all your party, free pickup and deliver to and from the airport in Denpasar or your next destination here on the island and all the Balinese peace and tranquility you may need.
The enclosed ground floor A/C bedroom contrasts in every respect with the open upstairs accommodation featuring pure Balinese unobstructed clear views down to the assure Indian Ocean over blinding emerald green rice fields bounding the exotic Hindu Temple Puri Mastima. The room's second floor height assures one of the best views on Bali and makes it a wonderfully private nest hidden up in the tops of the surrounding coconut and fig palms.
There is so much to do and see in and around Villa Chandra ranging from massages (reflexology to full-body) including day fishing trips with the local fishermen, private yoga and tai chi lessons and many, many things in between that we have produced several brochures to help our guests plan their stay in advance. A second brochure covers a range of Island tours with pricing, distances and short descriptions of the tours and the Balinese drivers that we have cleared to work with our guests for their English abilities and knowledge. Both of these brochures are only available after you have booked and your email address is accessible to us.
Villa Chandra is a very special and unique base to enjoy your Balinese experience from and we feel that we have succeeded in including as much of the world famous Balinese flair and style into it's construction and layout as we possibly could and at the same time fully embracing a maximum on western ideals of comfort and convenience. Our trained, gentle and loyal Balinese staff who have all been with us for many years will do everything in their power to assure that your stay with us is a happy, tranquil, adventurous and memorable one.
As owners and caretakers of this small piece of paradise along with the neighbouring Villa Surya we try to use our extensive local knowledge to assist our guests in getting the most out of their short time here and help make their holiday truly the experience of a lifetime.
We love Bali and all things Balinese from the people to the mountains and everything in between. Our goal is to make this available to our guests with our intimate local knowledge and happiness in meeting new and interesting people from all over this wonderful planet
The Owner purchased this villa in 2013
I built this property after constructing the neighboring Villa Surya and tried to include all the things that differentiate High End Luxury (Surya) from High End Joy of Living (Chandra) including a hang to the romantic which is all around us here in Bali.
The views alone are to-die-for but we hope you won't but hang around to thrive on Ketut's marvelous cooking which ALL our guests love and the offers she's had to decline to go home with them are almost a daily event. We are situated 150 yards/meters away from a Hindu temple and 200 away from the beach. Our tropical garden has coconuts, papaya, banana, mango, soursap, etc - lots of fruit. So you are living in the middle of a tropical orchard.
Thank you Petra and Mark for making our stay even more enjoyable! Thank you for all your help and knowledge in planning our tours....it certainly made things much easier for us! You went out of your way to make our stay special! The villa is as private as you want it to be! Your staff is second to none....thank you to Kuduk (hopefully I spelled this correctly!) for cooking such wonderful meals....it was so much easier than having to buy your own groceries and then having it cooked! Thank you to Alit and his wife...they are both such an asset and we enjoyed getting to know them! I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone! We certainly enjoyed staying here and enjoyed the peace and quiet! We wish you all the best!
Having been to Bali numerous times we decided we needed something more authentic and what a great choice this was.
This is not your average type of tourist trap its the real deal with the real food with real people in the real Bali.
Imagine waking up in the morning looking out of your bedroom to rice paddies a temple and the ocean.
Then having your breakfast made by local village staff with a genuine smiles.
Make sure you get them to cook for you, the food was fresh fresh fresh and authentic.
Ask and you shall receive,these people go out of their way to make your stay memorable, we were even taken to the markets with them an what an experience that was.We also seen a local celebration.
My son loved this place and wasn't bored once there is so much to see and do very close to this place and its not full of tourists.
The property is quiet , peaceful and luxurious.
We used the driver on a few occasions ,I cant remember the price but it was super cheap compared to the last time in Bali and we went to some places the tourists do go to.
The owner picked us up at the airport and boy is this guy knowledgeable and has a love for Bali and the local people.It made the rest of the holiday easy as he told us what to avoid and made recommendations to us.Everyone is friendly helpful without being intrusive and the locals are not pushy
I could go on and on but I'll let the fact that we made another booking for later this year tell you that this place is very very good.
Villa Chandra nearly ruined our trip to Bali. We checked out early and lost $600 because the place made us ill (see below) and is not "luxury" whatsoever. It is also not "romantic" because the owners have no respect for privacy and walk in whenever they please. Poor value for money, unsafe for children, and worst of all, an owner (who also manages Villa Surya) who did not care for the safety nor privacy of our family.
There are so many great villas in Bali--Villa Chandra and Villa Surya are not among them.
This place is not "luxury" as the ad suggests--Villa Chandra is more like a hot, sticky, cheap ecolodge in an overgrown garden, with critters (huge spiders, lizards, cockroaches, red ants) EVERYWHERE . Only one space (the unattractive downstairs bedroom) has A/C.
IF YOU HAVE ANY SORT OF HAY FEVER, POLLEN, OR TREE ALLERGIES, DO NOT STAY HERE. My husband and six-month-old baby had such bad respiratory problems that we asked to leave after three nights (of 10 nights). We hoped to get just a night or two refund. Mark refused to negotiate and returned none of our money. He did help us obtain medicine, but this--the strongest steroidal treatment--did not work.
When I did leave and attempted to share my feedback of the place with Mark, he slammed the door in my face in front of his staff while I was carrying my six-month-old son.
IF YOU HAVE SMALL KIDS, DO NOT STAY HERE. There are 5- to 15-foot drops with no railings in the upstairs bedroom, swimming pool , stairs, and the dining/living area. We couldn't take our eyes of our kids for a second. Beyond that, there were huge spiders on the beds, ants in the bathrooms, and a hornets nest over the pool.
IF YOU WANT PRIVACY, DO NOT STAY HERE. The owner Mark, who stays on site when his other property, Villa Surya, is not rented, enters the grounds whenever he wishes (usually wearing only a sarong). We booked this remote location to get away from people but instead had Mark and his partner Petra coming in and out any time they wished, from early in the morning until late at night. Some guests may enjoy this sort of hands-on, over-involved presence. We did not.
Many more problems beyond this that I won't get into (misleading pricing on food; raw bread served for breakfast with overcooked eggs; very unattractive dining/living area; and more). All in all, a horrible experience. We were thrilled to leave.
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Villa Chandra. We enjoyed the rooms, the marvelous view, the pools, the breakfasts, the garden, our hosts and many more. A great place in Bali away from the crowded touristy areas.
