Just spent 5 days at the Villa Asmara with friends. We loved it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a few meals cooked for us and they were divine. Make sure to ask the cook for suggestions and eat local Balinese food. She cooked the yummiest meals. The rooms were spacious, clean and exactly as the photos show. The Villa is approximately 40 minute drive from Kuta and only a short 10 minute drive to Echo Beach. We used the driver attached to the Villa and he was very accommodating. Do yourself a favour and book this villa. The peace and quiet are just what you are looking for.
