“7 Days of Pure Bliss”
Reviewed 27 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012
people found this review helpful

We arrived at lazy dog villa on January 6th 2012, Nyoman met us at the airport and transported us to the villa, when the villa door opened we were blown away to say the least this villa is simply stunning the grounds are beautiful and well looked after, the pool is just perfect and quite large (looks a bit smaller in photo's). We have two teenagers and booked all 3 rooms for our stay and the only complaint I have was the weather could have been a bit kinder to us. Nyoman and his wife Ayu are just lovely, he cleans the pool and gardens while Ayu cleans the villa and does all your washing each day ( I am really missing her since home) she is at the villa from 8.30am till 3.30pm but we changed the times to allow sleep ins and also told her to leave as soon as she was finished, which wasn't a problem. This was our first stay in Sanur and I am now a convert, it was so quiet in this area and you could cross the road quite easily without fearing for your life. Sometimes Sanur has power blackouts (which happened twice whilst we were there) this is not a problem at LDV as they have a backup power generator which activated as soon as power went off. The owners Ray and Suri were extremely helpful to us during our stay, Suri is Balinese and sorted a few booking problems out for me and both she and Ray came by on my daughters 17th birthday with a beautiful birthday cake and flowers for her, this was unexpected and so appreciated. The accommodation is extremely clean and very comfortable, they have not forgotten a thing here its like being at home with everything you could possibly want, I would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation to anyone and am looking forward to returning there in the not too distant future. Thankyou Ray, Suri, Nyoman and Ayu.

“Fantastic villa”
Reviewed 22 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011
people found this review helpful

After reading a lot of Trip Advisor reviews, it’s clearly easy for the first-time Bali villa user to get caught up in ‘villa hysteria’. That is, for people to be enamoured simply by the concept of staff attending to some of their daily needs (washing, cooking, security etc). Since these services are provided, to some extent, by all Bali villas, it should not be the primary basis on which accommodation is judged. Notwithstanding that, if the service is done well, it can make a big difference, as evidenced by the Lazy Dog Villa, Sanur.

The first impression of Lazy Dog Villa is its simple class. The villa is modern, refined, clean, and nicely (if not overly tastefully) decorated. From start to finish, there was a very smooth operation from Kristen, Ray, Ayu and Nyoman. In particular, the villa staff were professional and discreet (and didn’t once complain about their salary/employer/husband/wife/capacity to educate their children etc. as we have experienced at so many other villas). They clearly valued their work and their professional conduct was much appreciated.

The villa, in addition to being very quiet (by Bali standards) is equipped with fantastic facilities. The bathrooms are brilliant, and have outstanding water pressure, which is not to be taken for granted in Bali. In addition, the pool is great – warm enough all day and night, but not always in full sun. Again, this is not something to be taken for granted. Also, there is free Wi-Fi, a free phone for local calls, and a large flat screen TV. Once again, at this price point, these are certainly not the norm.

There are some really nice touches – from Nyoman driving you to Hardy’s (the local supermarket) and showing you the best money-changer when you arrive, through to the fluffy towels, free toothbrushes, unlimited body washes and shampoo, and a beautiful Christmas tree - we always felt valued and looked after. In particular, the ‘welcome pack’, which included bacon, eggs, jam, margarine, bread, juice, milk, beer, soft drink, water, and an enormous bowl of fresh fruit, was very helpful and much appreciated.

The kitchen was large and very well equipped, which (somewhat unusually for Bali) made self-catering ‘do-able’. The western-standard cooking facilities, barbeque, and a useful range of condiments provided free of charge in the pantry, combined with the fresh produce available at Hardy’s, means home-made sandwiches for lunch or a BBQ and salad for dinner is very easy for those inclined.

The villa security was very discreet. Some villas allow the security man and other staff to wander around your yard at any and all hours of the day and night – a problem if privacy is desired (which it often is, given you booked a ‘private villa’). Thankfully, security staff at the Lazy Dog never entered the villa enclosure without permission, and Ayu and Nyoman always rang the gate doorbell and waited to be invited inside.

I cannot pretend that the villa was perfect (few places are), and there were some minor problems that detracted a little from the overall quality of our stay.

The living room sofas are ridiculously uncomfortable. To be fair however, the selection of rattan/cane as the first-choice material for sofas in most Bali villas nevertheless means that this isn’t a problem unique to Lazy Dog. Also, the beds are simply too short. Whilst expansive and plush, the beds appear to be designed for the Asian market. If you’re more than 180cm, prepare to spend the night kicking your toes against the bed-end.

Unfortunately, Ayu, the maid, doesn’t cook. For many regular villa users, the lack of included breakfast and no option for prepared dinners will be a little strange. The welcome pack was enough for one or two mornings, but after that we were left to our own devices when it came to breakfast, which is somewhat unusual in a Balinese villa, many of which provide a cooked breakfast each morning. As would be expected, Ayu does do laundry each day. As would perhaps also be expected, your clothes end up grey. Typical of Balinese laundering, the ability to make whites un-white and colours less vivid is world-class. A tip for first-time Bali travellers – don’t bring your best clothes.

The villa lacked a handbook of local advice. Most villas provide some information about the best places to eat (at varying prices) and where the best value massages can be accessed, etc. It is invaluable for travellers who have not visited an area before. The ‘tour’ of Sanur provided by Nyoman pointed out the supermarket and a good money-changer, which was handy, but some more advice from the owners would have been appreciated. In particular, restaurant advice is very helpful, as navigating the minefield that is the Bali restaurant scene can be nothing short of treacherous, and finding the gems that are inevitably well hidden can be difficult.

As it is, a stay here is sure to impress, and guests will not be disappointed with the attentive, discreet service and superb facilities. I would strongly recommend the Lazy Dog Villa as a fantastic oasis in the laid-back area of Sanur.

“Lovely spot”
Reviewed 10 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Enjoyed our family stay in Lazy Dog Villa very much, we used all three rooms for the five of us. Teenagers appreciated big TV too. Pool very nice, accomodation very nice, ditto grounds. A big plus -it was the first time in Bali that we had a housekeeper who did our washing (and put me totally to shame with her ironing and folding) - but a really nice change from washing everything ourselves under the shower for weeks at a time. Slight negative was realising that I had to organise the breakfasts (although there was a well stocked fridge the first day). I'd got used to being fed.. I think the fridge and the TV could use a bit of help from airconditioning (the kitchen / dining is in the open but under cover) because the fridge was really struggling and the DVD player kept overheating. The villa is beautiful, just remember to take cash as they dont take credit card which I was a bit surprised about as its a pretty upmarket place. I suppose I ony noticed these small negatives because overall it was a terrific place.

What a way to finish our Bali holiday - 5 days of pure relaxation, Ayu and Nyoman made our stay perfect. Loved everything, the morning cycles using the bikes provided at the villa, breakfast by our private pool, the morning lazing by the pool, wandering the shops and a great meal at some top restaurants.Would recommend to anyone !

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 25 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Stayed for 4 nights mid October, it was the highlight of our trip for sure. Cannot fault the whole experience. Totally private villa ( including private sole use pool ) close to shops, restaurants and beach. Smooth operation from start to finish from the owners / staff.
The amenities at the villa were fantastic as others have written about before me. If you want a paradise home away from home, this is the place. I would recommend it to anyone.
