Stunning villa with great views over looking the ocean. The villa itself is beautiful and a wonderful place to relax and entertain. Perfect for the family in a great, peaceful location close to the beaches. Two beautiful swimming pools. Villa staff are excellent, special mention to the chef who cooked us fantastic food! Owners are a delight and were extremely helpful! Thank you! Will most definitely visit again.
A family reunion was brought to life at Villa Bayu. 10 adults and 7 children were all accommodated comfortably. The Villa Bayu team went above and beyond to ensure we had a comfortable stay and a holiday of a lifetime. The in-house chef prepared beautiful meals every day for us, the two swimming pools kept the kids entertained for hours and the various seating areas allowed those needing a timeout from the festivities a perfect place to read a book.
The villa's style is laidback luxury. Effortlessly put together with beautiful views of the surrounding area. Its close proximity to the restaurant, bars, beaches and cafes makes it super easy to get around.
I would highly recommend Villa Bayu and will certainly be back for another holiday of a lifetime!
We organised a "family friends" trip to Bali in July, 2016. 3 families, with a total of 15 people; 7 adults and 8 children ranging in age from 11 to 18. Villa Bayu seemed like a perfect choice for us as it had enough beds to sleep us all...AND it was in a great location.
On our arrival to Bail airport we were greeted by the friendly driver, who managed to fit all of us, and all our luggage into 3 vehicles!! It was about a 45 minute drive to Villa Bayu. From the moment we stepped foot into the villa, there was much "oohing and aching". It really was beautiful. The kids ran off to explore all of the rooms, gazebos, entertaining areas, pools etc. We were met by the villa manager who explained all of the details regarding booking transport, ordering meals, etc. We had pre-ordered our dinner as we only arrived at around 8pm in the evening. So we were all fairly hungry and read to sit down to eat. We had a delicious meal cooked by the staff and then headed off to settle into our rooms.
Villa Bayu has 2 villas. As we had a large group we rented both. The top villa has 4 double rooms, all with their own gorgeous outdoor bathrooms and balconies. There is an open air (covered roof) kitchen, pantry, dining and lounge area in between the bedrooms. The infinity pool has glorious views and there was plenty of seating in and around the pool area which was great for relaxing, reading, sunbathing.
Heading down the stairs there was another kitchen, with a bar and lounge area. This was ideal for us as it really enabled everyone to have a spot they could retreat to if they wanted to have some peace and quiet. One of the families had a couple of friends come to visit...so they were able to pop down to that middle lounge and catch up, while the rest of us swam and chatted upstairs.
The lower villa was amazing too. Another pool, 2 more bedrooms and a large lounge that had huge sofas and a TV with movies etc. This was perfect as the kids zone. We slept 7 of the children down in this villa and they loved it. There was also a large grassed area that the kids could play on. Just an added bonus!
We did many day trips from the villa and it was easy to organise transport. We also explored the local area as there are quite a number of well known attractions like Padang Padang beach and the beautiful Uluwatu Temple. We also discovered some great little cafes and restaurants within a few minutes drive from the villa.
We were really happy with all of the meals we had while staying at Villa Bayu. It was wonderful to have someone there ready to prepare our scrambled eggs in the morning and then come home after a big day out, to a delicious meal. Each night we would discuss with the cook what we would like for the following evenings meal. They would also pop out and buy milk, bread etc if we needed that kind of thing.
Overall we had a most fabulous stay at Villa Bayu and would highly recommend it to anyone heading for a trip Bali.
We had a wonderful time here after a hardcore scuba diving trip, this is for us to rest and chill for the last couple days of our holiday. The villa was everything we had hoped for, well kept, beautiful setting, 2 pools with a different theme, very spacious with huge different living room areas. Staffs were super helpful we were very well looked after, also the chef made amazing breakfast/lunch/supper local style. BBQ fish is a must try! We went Ubud for a day trip leaving the villa behind was our biggest mistake we put ourselves in the traffic jam for hours in a hot tiny van, we could have just chill out in the villa soaking in the sun by the pool having wonderful wines and bubbles. (BTW they have a wonderful wine selection menu that we can ask to purchase before hand and they have some really good local wine with excellent values.) Will definitely be back.
We had an amazing stay at Villa Bayu. The layout of the villa is stunning with epic views from most areas of the villa, especially the upper deck infinity pool. The dining area is a great place to hang out in the evening, either by the bar or around the long dining room table. The bedrooms are very well appointed and the lower area is complete with a movie viewing area - a great place for children to chill in the evening. Locally, there is too much to do! An endless choice of beaches, restaurants, cafes and shops. The staff were great, very helpful and kind.
