We stayed at 3V (formerly Vivalavi) from 24-27th Dec 2010. The complex has 6 separate private villas consisting of 2 bedrooms/ 2 bathrooms plus open-air living / kitchen, private plunge pool, very lush and private garden. The gardens are beautiful, very tropical, with a central large pool, sun lounges, 4 relaxing shaded 'bales' and day beds all around the pool area, with wonderful 'chill-out' piped music being played quietly to add to the atmosphere. There is a restaurant, bar, kids club, gym and free yoga classes. We loved the fact that you had breakfast each morning (included in tariff) in the small intimate open air restaurant, and you could stay at the villas and have a fantastic meal there if you couldn't be bothered leaving these wonderful private villas - or have room service. The food there was outstanding and very reasonable. It was really quiet, no traffic noise and it felt great to come back 'home' to the villas (our little oasis) after being out in the busier parts of Seminyak, Legian, Kuta etc. By the way, these busy areas were only a 10 - 20 min taxi ride away, anything from 14000 to 40000 rp depending how far south you traveled. The 3V villas are in Keroboken (near the Prison), just past the north end of Sunset Rd. This area is a good base if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, but you can choose to take a taxi ride to the busy spots. There is not very much within walking distance, just the usual smaller warungs where locals eat, some cheaper massage businesses, handicrafts being made, but the taxi's are so cheap, and there were a lot of great restaurants within 2-4 kms, also close by in the Petitenget area. What made these villas stand out as one of the best we've stayed at was the personalized service on site 24/7, the restaurant, and the attention to detail of the villas, cleanliness etc. and free wi-fi. Owned by a French company, there was a very helpful and friendly french manager on site, and the other tourists were from many different countries. We loved 3V and would highly recommend it to all ! Well done on providing a great complex which stands out from the crowd. We will never be interested in staying at a regular hotel or resort again.
Two great restaurants nearby worth visiting : "Warung Sobat", (Jl Batu Belig 11A) and "Mie 88" (on Jl Petitenget, sit out the back overlooking the rice fields), and Ganesha Bookshop at 888 Jalan Petitenget is also worth a visit. If you need a driver, we highly recommend Made Nata, telephone : [--]or email [--] -he has local knowledge, is honest and very reasonable.
