Villa Celagi is a dream,
1 min after arrival, we ask, whether we have to go out for anything!
The Villa is huge, about 400m² on a ground of about 2000m². We had a big private pool and a private ocean access. The whole property is very well kept by Wayan (Thank you for you excellent cooking and service) and Dirta (Manager) and a private gardener (Koman). A lot of activities, sailing, motorbike rent, tour to the volcano, and and and, can be organized very reliable by the staff. We really recommend it highly and will come back there on our next Bali trip.
Thanks also to Theresiea and Jonatan, the always keep contact to us by mail (only don't know who wrote) and care about very much.
From the moment you walk in the front door and smack eyes on the view out to the ocean you just know you are on a good thing. This Villa is huuuuuuge! And so is the pool! Others have said it, but I have to say it again - the photos don't do it justice (and they are wonderful photos). Plenty of room to move. Superb choice of music to play and books to read. Spotlessly clean. The two bedrooms are very separate so privacy is assured. Meals cooked for you are plentiful and delicious. The kitchen is massive. You can open the entire front of the villa which overlooks the ocean which allows are beautiful breeze to come through. There are plenty of fans and air con in the rooms. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.
We absolutely loved out stay at Villa Celagi. The whole experience was seemless from booking, question answering to the stay itself. We are still missing Wayan and her amazing breakfasts not to mention the Villa itself, the amazing pool and that view! If you are considering this property you will not be disappointed. As other reviews have stated there are a number of steps as the property is on a hillside so I would say it would be less suitable for less able bodied elderly and young children. An absolutely amazing spot to relax and really unwind.
Food wise, having sampled many of the local warungs our pick is Warung Celagi which is about a 10min scooter ride away in Amed, amazing curries and yummy sate and extremely reasonably priced although there are still some good options within 5 minutes if you dont want to travel that far and you can also ask Wayan to prepare a meal for you, she is an amazing cook. Wayan and the team are a wealth of information and can organised everything for you (bike hiring, snorkel gear, fishing trips, drivers etc etc). We will definitely be back.
The view, the villa, the service personal are excellent. There are some stairs, so it might be the only drawback for some people or very small children. Otherwise, just book it, and you won't regret it.
