Stayed at one of the Sandhya Villas (there are several in a complex) together with my fiancée and our baby. I would not recommend it to anyone. The pictures look great, and supposedly you have “butler service” included. The reality however is that the villas are old and poorly maintained, and look far from as nice as the pics. Peeling wallpaper, old, noisy and poorly working aircon, a water cooler that looks to be from the 80’s. The lights in the pool are not working, ice machine - not working, a complete kitchen for cooking - not available. And I can go on. In addition the villa is dirty. It seems it hasn’t been cleaned properly in a looong time. Bedsheet and towels look like they were probably white at some point in time - now they’re somewhere between grey and yellow. The butler service - non existent. The staff cleans the villa and the pool, and may help you call a taxi, that’s all. When they did the dishes they deliberately chose not to clean out baby’s bottles and spoons as they were not part of the villa equipment. Also I asked them for help with renting a baby cot and playpen. They quoted me a price almost double that of the most expensive bali baby equipment suppliers you can find with a google search. Probably were looking to make a margin for themselves. Not very butler-like... I would stay away from this place - much better available that gives value for money. I’ve seen other people giving it pretty good reviews - can only assume they have very limited experience of what staying at a really good villa in Bali is like. …
We stayed here for one night (was supposed to be 3). We changed accommodation due to the loud noises from the building sites surrounding us. The staff were very nice and provided us with a full refund (which they did not have to) due to the noise. The bathrooms could do with a good clean. The provided breakfast was cold and unappetising, with only 1 of our 4 meals actually being eaten. Overall nice, but would not return
So we paid a premium price for this villa to stay with myself and my two daughters. Our experience was exactly as graceaugust described and her photos are completely accurate. The villa is spun a state of absolute disrepair, we booked through booking.com but conveniently were net given an option to leave a review there, so in an effort to warn others I decided to post here. We stayed for one night, and only because we couldn’t arrange to leave sooner. I’m over $1000 out of pocket but I’d rather lose that than stay here. No response whatsoever from the managing agents, unsurprisingly, but although I’m sure I’ll never see my money again, absolutely no regrets - I only wish we could have moved out sooner.
Had an amazing time in Bali! All thanks to the amazing manager who helped us out and assisted us throughout our stay at villa sandhya. Thank you and your team for assisting us from the day to night and being so humble towards us. Looking forward to come back here at this amazing villa with your great assistance and guidance.
We had a Beautiful time in Bali, the weather was perfect and we had an amazing service at the villa sandhya, Very friendly people, our guide Braman was definitely a qualified person who make us feel very comfortable. I would definitely come back!! The food also was great!!
Villa sandhya is an amazing place to stay for holiday. Very kindly people. The supervisor here Putu is one of the best person that i have ever met in my life. The Villa is so confortable and all the people that works here are so kind. I will be back for sure. Really nice experince
Great location but neighbouring development a huge issue. There is hammering all day and it’s 930pm on Christmas Eve and they are still Hammering and working. I wouldn’t stay here again unless the massive neighbouring development was finished.
Just around the corner from the hipster strip of Batu Bolong is Echo Beach, a slightly quieter location if you are looking for that elusive Bali vibe. Our family of 2 adults and one teen stayed at the Villa Sandhya for 10 magic days and loved every minute. Huge spaces, beautiful amenities, every need provided for and best of all the staff. We enjoyed the most gracious hospitality from this outstanding team. Special mention also to the tropical pool perfection of the villa - in short, we simply could not fault the experience here and would recommend without hesitation. We’ll be back for sure.
I can't tell you enough how let down I was at the state of this Villa. I put my family up in this Villa as it was their first time to the area and I wanted them to stay in a lovely villa, I can't believe we paid for this place! Where do I start? - Bathrooms and toilets disgusting, not clean or maintained at all! - Gardens unkept and littered - wall paper was old and dated and falling off all the walls and where they had been put back up had been done roughly with no care. - the taps didn't work right in the bathrooms - the beds where hard and bedrooms un-inviting and poorly cleaned and rundown - Townes and linen had holes or stains - Mould on the tiles/pebbles near the pool area - Mirrors broken or filthy -The top step in this Villa was broken and moved when you stepped on it being very dangerous - The couch outside was old and dirty, it was itchy to sit on and smelt of dampness - The kitchen was also poorly maintained - the aircon leaked - The fan was covered in dirty and you wouldn't dare turn it on (photo attached) - There is no shower inside, and the one outside is dirty and your fighting the mozzies to get a quick shower. Horrible to come home to at night and need to stand outside to get washed. If I had seen the property earlier I would have taken my family out straight away, they didn't want to trouble me by telling me how bad it was but they were very happy to leave. It was not the gorgeous villa they make out it to be. Do not be fooled by good reviews, look at the dates and see the photos they have added. I contacted the manager after seeing the property and listed all the above, I got no reply. I wouldn't have paid but the money had already been taken. I am appalled that this cost me over $1000 when I wouldn't of spend $10 here. Take a look at the photos attached... This villa looked like it had not been seen too in years...…
We recently spent 4 nights in Villa Sandhya, we are a family with 3 kids aged 11,8 & 6. The villa is immaculate and clean and very spacious. The staff were amazing, always with a smile on their faces and willing to help with whatever we needed. The location is spot on. Only a 2 minute walk to Echo Beach and set just off the main road, so nice and quiet but still very close to some nice shops, restaurants, day spa and ATM's. The open stair case prob not suitable for families with small children. The only thing we found was that the tiles down stairs were very slippery when water from the pool was splashed on them. Other than that we can't fault the villa. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. And we would return for sure. We booked our stay through Cantik Bali Villas website and paid it off as a lay-by. We found this a great option, and they were very professional to deal with. Would definately book through Cantik again. Thanks again Villa Sandya for making our Canggu stay so enjoyable.…
