It took an hour to get into the villa from the airport on a Friday. We had cleared customs just before noon. Made, the villa chauffeur, was waiting for us. The traffic was bad, but that would be our only complaint for this trip!
We enjoyed our stay at the villa tremendously. We are a family of 9, including 3 children, here for grandad's birthday. The early party had arrived on Tuesday and had left us two remaining rooms to choose from.
We took the upper floor room with a balcony facing the paid fields. Grandparents and the older kids took the rooms facing the pool. Parents with their youngest kid stayed in the family suite at the far end of the property.
The spacious and beautifully maintained grounds and living areas provided lots of room for everyone. There was hardly any need to leave the villa, for we had all our meals catered for by the resident chef, Putu. This included a delicious (non spicy) chicken curry in local style.
All we had to do was to relax and enjoy the sun, swimming pool, food and attentive service provided by the crew, led by Eka. We also enjoyed many games at the pool table and a massage in the breezy massage room. We didn't have time for the video room nor the yoga room, but we relished the company of the lovely Nuna, the resident Dachshund.
We would like to especially thank Eki, Heni, Putu, Made and the rest of the team, not forgetting sweet Nuna, for making this week an exceptional and memorable one for our family.
