This is a very special grand Villa well away from the hustle & bustle of the urban areas, and altho 2 km inland from Lovina (volcanic) beach, it is reminiscent of the older Bali, in private natural surroundings with dedicated staff including cooks Ketut and Putu & masseuse Negah. We spent 8 beautiful days here enjoying the very serene & calming views across the fabulous infinity pool over the forest and through to the Java sea. The Villa is surrounded by natural tropical plantings & features a beautiful gazebo which in turn is surrounded by a beautiful lily pond. The natural wildlife is plentiful & we enjoyed watching the beautiful butterflies , dragonflies, jungle roosters & birds. This is a perfect place to just chill & enjoy with loved ones that wish to experience the natural Bali .We particularly enjoyed the local foods & fruits & lovely to have staff show us how to cook the Balinese way. The house has a huge collection of books and DVD's & a necessary (for us) coffee machine (buy yr own beans at the fabulous Buda Bakery nearby), so we welcomed the spaces the Villa offered to relax, swim and do nothing much else. We particularly loved the HUGE beds & large open outside showers. Evi the local manageress is a real gem & was very helpful. Recommend highly for the local experience & if you want to do things in town, it was only a taxi ride away. We recommend being picked up by the Villa Driver at the Denpasar Airport but allow at least 3 daylight hrs to get the Villa from the airport.
