Villa Tao was exceptional. A wonderfully tranquil atmosphere set away from hubbub of the main street but still within walking distance of everything.
Meta is a wonderful host. Nothing is too much trouble for her or her staff. Facilities are cleaned every day, including the beautiful pool. Don't miss the opportunity to experience an affordable, comfortable accommodation. You will not be disappointed.
Our stay at Villa Tao was awesome. It was our home for 11 days and it was exactly what we were looking for. The location was spot on, a 3 minute stroll to Jl. Raya Seminyak and we came out right in front of the Bintang Supermarket. The villa was comfortable and homely with a kitchen to cook in, a lounge to chill out on and watch tv or dvds and the bedroom was large with great bed and superb aircon. There is even a washing machine which is super convenient. The pool was the stand out feature though. Huge with just the right amount of sun and shade.
Thanks to Meta and Roger for being great hosts. The villa needed a new tv in the lounge and I had a small incident with a mains water pipe. Both problems were dealt with quickly and without any fuss. They couldnt have been anymore accommodating.
Thanks to Kadek for all his hard work keeping the villa clean and for mopping up my mess from the water pipe. Truly grateful.
We would not hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend this villa to everyone.
We had a blast!!
A great stay at villa Tao. The villa is a nice quiet location, just close enough to walk to the beach or bars / restaurants. The Villa has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay - and it is even nicer than the photos! We would recommend to anyone who is planning a visit to Seminyak.
Spacious , Good Location , Clean,Safe! This place is exactly as you see in the photos. Swimming pool is clean and rooms are big and bed is huge.
The house keeper (Kadex) was there to welcome us and also was kind enough to take us to BingTang super market (which was 5-8mins walk or 2 mins on Motorbike) so that we can buy the essential things for our 2 year old.
Kadex also cooked us breakfast in the morning and was very friendly.
I wont say this is a negative but it depends on what you like but The bathroom were very open and the fittings very not very modern and were very basic.
Air Con in the room doesn't cool the room enough and we had to keep the fan ON with it to maintain a comfortable temp.
Overall a nice place to stay.
We stayed in several villa's in Bali but Villa Tao was the best place we could wish for. I was actually sad to have to leave, the vibe is so good. Will definitely come back and can highly recommend this place to everybody. Supermarket is closeby just as all kinds of good restaurants and shops. We stayed with two small children and also for them this was the best place to stay.
Having a disabled child made it difficult for my wife and I to not only travel but decide on what accommodation to choose. I can confidently day that we definately made the right choice in Villa Tao. It is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. Tucked away in a peaceful Street yet only walking distance to everything you could need or want. The host Meta and her husband Roger are marvellous hosts and would do anything possible to make your stay nothing short of brilliant. Highly recommended. 10 out of 10. Thank you Meta, Roger, Villa Tao and Bali.
Meta was really nice! The house was more beautiful than what we expected it to be. Definitely recommend.
