We stayed in the two-bedroom Presidential Villa with my family. We booked initially a two nights stay but opted for extra two nights. Our plan to stay in Ubud changed upon seeing this marvelous place. The luxurious villa has both of what Ubud has to offer; a nice rice paddy and a tropical forest view from our room and the in the infinity pool.
The place is brand new and we are privileged to be the first guests to have stayed in this magnificent villa. The architectural design of the place reflects the Balinese way of life; defined as simple and in harmony with nature. This is complimented with modern facilities with minimalist touch. It also has a cooking stove and an oven. I really did get my cooking skills to use! It is perfect for us who love to make our own food.
The entire staff had exerted every effort to make us feel welcomed and would always find ways to accommodate our every request. Wayan, the driver/tour guide, has introduced us to a lot of the Balinese culture during our trip complimentary of Anusara. Yes, the stay is inclusive of tours around Ubud areas and other tourist places in Bali. He is a trustworthy and jolly person. It was very enriching for my family to have seen how rice is planted and harvested in one of our visits. Our Bali trip was made complete by Wayan as he successfully immersed us with the local culture and tradition.
Gusti, the manager is a man of integrity who always exudes calmness. He has plenty of experience in the field of hospitality industry. Keep up the good job! Putri, the receptionist is always the caring and gentle woman. We had the chance to celebrate New Year’s Eve with Peter, the villa owner, who is both down-to-earth and a man of wisdom. It was really pleasant to have exchanged ideas about life and the world around us. Cheers! Truly, the service and experience can only be rated as five-star!
My wife and I always travel in every romantic place around the world. I thought at first that I would no longer get excited to stay in a luxury villa as Anusara (after our over-water bungalow experience in Bora Bora and Maldives, to name a few). But I was wrong! As I have mentioned, we ended up staying longer. We are already planning our next trip to Ubud this year with a bigger entourage.
Never miss to experience PARADISE in this lifetime!
