Villa Bekul is a fantastic place to start your relaxing stay in Bali. We've stayed in the Villa for 5 days with 8 (4 kids and 4 adults) and we had a great time.
The villa is great, the ladies at the villa are awesome we asked them to surprise as with dinner each night and we were never let down with the food. Awesome views. Nearly everything you want from the main side of the island just without all the people. Would highly recommend to stay here
We went to Lovina (Bali) with our whole faliliy to celebrate our weddinganniversary.
What we got, was unbelievable. The house, the vieuw, the service of the girls in the kitchen, the gardner, the poolboy: everything was really amazing.
We had a driver, who took us along the island, and showed us magnificent temples and gardens.
He was a giant in fixing things, that a normal tourist never can do.
This is for us by far the best journey evr, and we are longing to come back to Bali;
for sure in a Sing-Sing Villa.
The whole experience from enquiry to departure was a real pleasure. I will definitely return here. I wanted somewhere to go and just "switch off" and this place is perfect. I had never been to Bali before and had to force myself to leave the villa. Everything I wanted was there, the staff were very accommodating and took care of our every need. You really are taken care of and help is always on hand for whatever you need.
The villa is well appointed and maintained and one really couldn't ask for more.
A real gem of a place in every way.
Villa Bekul is fairly new and very comfortable. All bedrooms are air conditioned and have their own en-suite with an open air shower which is very appropriate for Bali. The common areas are sufficient, with pavilion style open air dining and lounge area with ceiling fans.
The location is in the hills out of Lovina town and away from the beach, we walked into town one day and it took about 40mins. To walk back to the villa from town would be more difficult as it is up a seriously steep driveway (we had to walk the last 50m when we arrived... the van could not make the climb with 8 people plus baggage ;-)...
Don't be put off by the distance to town, as Bali Bob was always available with transport when needed, whether for a quick run down to the shops, or a full day expedition.
We walked to one of the nearby waterfalls which was great, but we had a lot of rain (expected in December) and the water was a bit too dirty to swim in... would be great at other times of the year. Other activities we did included snorkelling in the National Park, visiting the local markets, jumping and sliding at waterfalls and just slothing around the villa enjoying the day beds or lazing around the pool. The girls explored a number of local spa's, and decided that they liked Spa Agung best.
The staff were fantastic... The food was great and the rooms were made up and cleaned every day. Garden and pool were tidy and well maintained. As I mentioned above, Bali Bob was great at arranging transport. It felt a bit weird having staff around all the time, but we got used to it very quickly as they are very unobtrusive. Each morning after breakfast we agreed which meals we would be around for, for the following day, the staff provided an estimated cost, which we paid, then during the day they would shop and next morning they would come back with the food, receipts and our change and prepare the meals. The system worked very well.
There are some good restaurants in the area, Buda Bakery was one of our favourites and the list in the villa is very helpful.
One word of caution... both my wife and son slipped over on the wet tiles in the villa... they are like ice when wet... be cautious.
