Our family made the decision to travel from Europe to Bali with our two young children (3 and 5 years old) in the hope that we would find adventure, sun, and most importantly – a get-away full of relaxation. We are so thankful we picked Villa Bayu as our base for this vacation and strongly recommend it for families travelling to Bali!
While at first glance the villa does not look cheap, I would argue that it IS excellent value-for-money. Villa Bayu is not just accommodation, it’s an experience. The villa is a good quality building with excellent rooms (great AC’s, good beds, spacious, etc.) and the design (“floor plan”) of the villa is top-notch, with fantastic infinity pools, lovely outside eating area, and full privacy. Included in the rate is the villa manager, Made, who is helpful when trying to arrange your itinerary or arranging manicure/pedicures at the villa, etc. Also included in the rate is a car and Pak Gede, the extremely friendly and accommodating driver, who takes you safely and comfortably to the beach or around the island as you please. All you have to pay is petrol. This is an excellent service when travelling with kids (where getting around is otherwise a bit of a hassle). Similarly perfect for family-travel is the fact that the chef and staff at the house are included in the price, meaning you can choose to take your dinners (and/or lunches) at the wonderful dining area at the house. We really enjoyed planning our meals for the next day (picking out our favorite local dishes or switching it up with club sandwiches and fries). All you have to pay is the ingredients (really not expensive in Bali). You running out of beer for the fridge? Just ask the chef to re-stock and he will do so as part of the shopping run. To me, this beats having to take all meals at restaurants with little kids getting too tired and wanting to go home etc.
I could go on (the views from the villa are addictive!) but the most important message I would leave you with is that from the planning stages when we were emailing with the villa owner Rosheen, to our welcome, throughout our stay, we felt lucky; lucky that we got to spend some time at wonderful Villa Bayu. I can’t recommend it enough!
I've stayed at Villa Bayu on two separate occasions. It keeps me coming back!
The team is very attentive to detail and the location is stunning. Ideal for a group of friends or a large family gathering.
I'll definitely be returning.
Superb luxury villa with wonderful infinity pool and all the comforts you could possibly want. Designed and furnished beautifully, cleverly combining contemporary styles with traditional Bali charm. Amazing location with a stunning view. Close proximity to lovely beaches and seafront restaurants. The benefit of a car and driver helped make the whole experience incredibly relaxing, as well as giving easy opportunity for exploring such a gorgeous Island. We'll be back!
Excellent in all aspects. Staff friendly and attentive. Food delicious. beaches within easy access.
Lovely linen and toiletries.
If you are looking for serenity, luxury and fun in one holiday - this is the place to stay. Exceptional service from the owners and on-site staff. The chef prepares delectable food and all requests were met. It is a fantastic location and transport is easily organised to local beaches, beach clubs and restaurants. The views are stunning. I would go back a million times over! FABULOUS.
