Newly remodeled and westernized downstairs room with western modern bathroom. Villa is an older property with beautiful well established gardens, at south end of Sanur close to the beach and a very pleasant 15 minutes walk to the main Sanur road with shops, hotels, and restaurants. The room is about 5 X 8 meters and is very quite and entered through spacious teak wood Ballet open and overlooking a small pond and gardens. Breakfast and other meals can be taken on the Ballet as well as lounging and watching TV, or the gardens. We have about a half hectare of private stone walled gardens manicured by our staff. Our pool is a big one great for laps or cooling off. Room includes light breakfast or you can arrange any meal you want with the staff for a fee. The staff will grocery shop daily for any diet. Staff
can provide laundry service , child care, poolside service, etc. This is a very private, secure home, situated in very secure part of Sanur, we neighbor the Chilean, Check, and French Consuls.
A walk of 800 meters or 10 minutes, down to the end of our street brings you to the beach and the beginning of the beach walk that goes the entire length of Sanur. It is a very beautiful way to see Sanur and exercise at the same time. From our house a $3 dollar taxi will take you any where in Sanur. The beach is protected by a barrier reef that also provides 2 of the best surf breaks in Bali.
SCUBA DIVING for up to 3 person, S-XL, pre-certification required. 25 years diving Bali and Indonesia.
The Villa Anandi provides an exceptional form of home stay in the heart of Sanur. It was a case of the actual experience being far better than the impression from the few photographs on the web site would have us believe.
The complex is accessed off a narrow lane way and you enter through a wide sliding gate which is under constant security watch from the adjacent guard post. The Southern Sanur beach and a variety of eating places are just a 10 minute walk away down the back streets of this part Sanur.
The complex is basically a large landscaped park with buildings dotted amongst the trees and ornamental gardens. Accommodation is in traditional Balinese style with integrated modern amenities. Our villa opened onto a generous covered seating area and deck and beyond that we had a view over manicured grass, ornamental pools, mature palms and the look of a Balinese jungle clearing.
The swimming pool is a generous 25m in a secluded area with covered pavilions for relaxing.
The piece de resistance of the complex is the library – an esoteric collection of books housed in a traditional Balinese thatch bungalow perched on timber stilts above an ornamental pool. I cannot (email hidden) for secluded reading, researching or writing. The thatch works like a natural air conditioning system and the interior is cool, quiet and intimate.
But apart from the quite exceptional physical presentation and facilities, Villa Anandi scores very highly on the human side. Ana and Douglas are great hosts, who made us feel extremely welcome, Douglas is interesting to talk to and is willing to talk at any time about Bali where he has lived for over 25 years. Ana and Douglas staff are also friendly and hospitable and do their best to help you with your wishes. Douglas was able to organise car and drivers for days out also a great massage lady who can be booked to come to the house, all at very reasonable prices. Also, it was really a nice experience to eat in, Ana and Douglas offered to have their staff cook for us on a couple of evenings, we let them know in the in the morning and had a pleasant evening in sampling the very tasty local cuisine.
I can only conclude this review by mentioning that I have already strongly recommended this place to close friends. If they decide to check out Villa Anandi I am confident that they will find the experience as enjoyable as we did. We enjoyed the experience and are definatly returning.
Many Thanks to Ana, Douglas and their lovely staff.
Staying in Anna and Doug's place was a verry nice experience for me. They make you feel home and even invited me for a big birthday party of one of their friends in their big garden. The place is close to the beach and very quit. I'm looking forward to my next stay at 31 of december.
