Paradise found! Put an “X” on the Bali Map
To put it short 10 + Stars! Where do we begin? Well maybe we should start with “Swastyastu” as we were coached J Right from the beginning, Paul the Villa owner was extremely responsive to all of our VRBO enquiries going over and above to respond back to us in detail and in a timely manner. Paul proved to be a man of high integrity as everything turned out exactly as promised and/or more. We had the honour of experiencing his hospitality, generosity, and genuine care that our time in both his villa and Bali was more than we dreamed. The villa staff are more than AMAZING! Surya, Kadek and Ewik were exceptional cooks, flexible and always willing to do anything to put a smile on our faces! Rather than select our meals we had them surprise us daily with their creations; we were not disappointed! The girls provide a relaxing massage on the baelong as you listen to the ocean. Kumong beautifully maintained the property. Budi the manager checked in on us daily and even helped our family have a unique session with a Hindu priest. Our private driver Yus safely shuttle us around to explore and learn about Bali was like having a tour guide, interpreter, cultural coach and merchandise negotiator all in one! His knowledge, passion, character and sense of humor will not be forgotten. The entire Villa staff all truly helped coordinate our perfect family vacation, with numerous options of local and/or distant excursions that was specifically tailored to our children 12 & 17 as well as my wife and I. The Villa itself is more than advertised. The house is spacious, spotless; the inside and outdoor furniture layout is extremely functional combined with comfortable beds and air conditioning. The private pool area, views and the baelong were absolutely treasured. The location of the Villa is perfect and within short distance to Seririt, Lovina and Menjangan Island, well away from the busy crowds. The black sand and warm calm waters of the ocean were second to none with views of fisherman and pods of dolphins. Peace and serenity here. Being Canadian and having travelled around the world there is no doubt in our minds that not only will you be treated to an exceptional beachfront Villa, authentic delicious food; but it is the amazing staff that are the “X” factor as they will ensure you experience Bali and its special culture in ways not possible anywhere else. Needless to say we gained a Bali family and a new favorite vacation destination! Suksma.
