Villa Satu is one of three villas at The Melaya Villas compound. It consists of three 3-bedroom holiday villas right on the beach of North West Bali. The villas are luxuriously equipped with a large pool of 5 meters x 15 meters and a lush tropical garden of 2000 meters squares directly adjacent to the beach. The living area of the villa is an antique Joglo that has been moved from Java to Bali. Most of Joglo part are at least 70 years old and therefore it gives the villa a truly authentic Indonesian character. The bedrooms are situated around the Joglo, each with a private rain shower bathroom, air-conditioned bedroom, a fan, a mosquito net, a walk in closet, safety box, and study table.
In front of the villa is a large terrace with 2 sun beds and a large pool of 75 meter squares. In the pool is a 4 meter squares paddling pool and at the end of the pool is a sundeck with 2 sunbeds to enjoy the Balinese sun. From the garden of the villa you can walk on to the beach and you can see the mountain peaks of Java in the distance, a phenomenal view.
During your stay you can relax in the villa, the staff is ready to take care of your needs. We have a cook for each villa who can cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, the villa is cleaned daily, the pool and garden are taken care of as well. If you want to make trips or do other activities you will find at least 25 thing to do and to see. Trip to the world famous blue fire at Ijen crater or to the scenic Mount Bromo can be arranged from our villas.
The villas are equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, a TV and audio set (also with blue tooth) and, of course, bed linen and towels are arranged. The villa manager is on hand to answer your questions and, if you wish, to organize tours and trips to the beautiful locations in the area.
The villas are equipped with solar panels to cover the electricity in the day, when the sun has set down we use the electricity that provided by the government.
We: Mark and Norin built the first villas, Villa AyoKa and Villa AyoDe in the South of Bali in 2009. After many years travelling around Bali, we discovered the beauty of North West of Bali. A non touristic area that can offer a truly relaxing holiday on the beach. The Melaya villas then built in 2014 and finished in June 2015 with the authentic of Joglo style.
Norin & Mark Luijten purchased this villa in 2015
We respect the nature and the culture of Bali and therefore we follow the guideline of Balinese in our design and building progress. We tried to save many coconut trees and we plant new trees. We run the property on solar energy for the day use.
Who doesn't want to wake up with the sound of the ocean? And after taking a shower, breakfast is prepared for you by our staff and you can enjoy having it at the dining table with full view on the swimming pool, the 2000m2 tropical garden and the ocean. After enjoying breakfast you can choose one of many things to do in the area or just relax staying in the villa and enjoy the Balinese sun.
Our family of 5 stayed in Villa Melaya during second half of June 2016. Primary purpose of the stay was to relax - and in that respect we got exactly that; Big nice pool, excellent staff, adequate facilities to cater for ourselves, etc. Being close to the beach, there was always a small breeze ensuring a comfortable temperature. Travelling with 3 boys is also a challenge... hence the large garden and relatively private location was a great bonus, we didn't bother anyone, and noone bothered us - nice! The villa is one of 3 - we stayed in the one furthest "north" - If I were to go again, I would however opt for the middle, or south Villa, as our closest neighbours had an over-achieving rooster, seeming to be a bit out of sync with the rest of the world. Didn't bother us much, but it may bother others...Also be aware that although close to the Bali barat National Park, there isn't much else going on. Perfect for family relaxing, but if you are looking for action in the immediate vincinity - look elsewhere. The nearest centres are about 20-30 min. drive, so no problem to get out for a dinner etc. but you have to get a driver. On the other hand, the location is really close to the national park which offers several attractions, and also close to Menjangan Island which is nice for snorkeling. Just make sure you get Nono as a guide and Dodik to drive you there, and you're off. Maria at the villa will arrange everything.
A special thanks to Maria and her staff who arranged everything we needed.
Service: 5 stars - Villa 4 stars - location 4 stars - so all in all 4.5
