We're coming back, no question at all. The villa was beautiful, quiet and private. The photos we looked at online were a perfectly accurate depiction of what we turned up to. Close to shops and restaurants but far enough away for tranquility. Pool was magic as was all furnishings, fittings and fixtures. Bed was huge and comfortable. Villa manager was welcoming and went out of his way for some requests/information we asked of him. He put the + after the A we already gave it.
We spent a couple of days at Athena Villa 2 and enjoyed out stay immensely. It's a stylish, new villa set around a deep pool, Bali hut and sun lounges. Sliding doors take you into a lounge area with tv and Bluetooth sound system. We caught up on a bit of Aussie news as the tv has Australia Plus channel.
There's a kitchen area with plumbed potable water so drinking from the tap is ok. Colourful artwork and furnishings have been skilfully sourced.
The bedroom has an extremely comfortable bed and good hanging spence. There's a safe in the wardrobe to store valuables.
The highlight for us was the bathroom. It had a deep stone-like bath, toilet with inbuilt bidet and great lighting. The shower looked like and felt like it was outdoors but was cover with a clear Perspex roof. You can choose a hand held shower hose or fixed shower head.
The villa is located up a few narrow laneways from Jalan Tamblingan; an easy walk but a bicycle would be ideal as well. There are many cafes, restaurants, massage spas and souvenir shops close by. Try the Grocer and Grind for breakfast - superb.
