Cancellation before 7 days of arrival date will require a 20% booking fee to be kept by Bersantai. The remaining balance will be refunded.
Please note: Our property has stairs and we do not have wheelchair access.
We stayed at the bersantai villas for 4 nights in the villa "rama." Had mixed feelings.
- comfortable bed
- not far from surf spots
- room is nicer in real life than the online photos
- friendly staff
- spacious room, bathroom and balcony.
- as a previous reviewer mentioned, at time of booking, we were also under the impression we booked a room with a private pool. This wasn't the case. (We shared with another room)
- average Internet (kept dropping out)
- informed by staff that TV was broken (only DVDs work)
- 87 stairs to villa (although good for fitness)
- you can only have a clear view of lagoon if standing. When siting on balcony, there is a line of plants blocking view.
- toiletries in the bathroom were pretty much empty eg shower gel. A top up for new guests would be nice.
- the room opens onto a balcony with glass doors and windows. The curtains supplied are see-through. Had 2 different staff members on 2 separate occasions walk past us while we were in a state of undress. Rooms needs new and heavier curtains. Not too keen on staff seeing us naked.
- twice came back to the room to have the smell of sewage coming up from the pipes. Once came back to our room after it had been made up, to the strong smell of cigarette smoke. Not sure how this happens?
All in all, has potential. 3 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. In reply to your recommendations. In Indonesia, particularly on a small island the Internet can be intermittent. It is very clear the pool is shared with 1 other villa. We will take this on board and look to improve but it is very likely these things were a one off as there has been no complaints like this ever before.
My stay was excellent. The villas are very nice and have excellent views of the bay. The on-site staff is awesome and very accommodating as was Steve. The location is excellent as well. Just a couple minute walk to some really nice restaurants right over the water as well as to a small beach. I will definitely be coming back to Lembongan and would stay here again.
Had a great stay in a lovely villa. Special mention to the staff who are extremely accommodating and friendly.
Only issue I had was that we were expecting (rightfully or wrongfully) a private pool due to the wording of the ad which is not the case.
Villa Bersantai was a great spot for my husband and I to spend ten days relaxing and soaking up Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Cenigan. The one bedroom villa we stayed in was a great hideaway, whilst being in walking distance of Jangutbatu (the village and beach) and Coconut Beach.
It was great to be able to swim, stand up paddle board, grab a bite or a beer all within a five minute walk of the villa! We spent quite a few days on scooters exploring the two islands and appreciated being able to also walk to many different locations to have breakfast or dinner at the beginning or end of each day. Being a short walk from the village also meant it was easy to pick up anything you needed (water, snacks, fruit) from the warung.
The villa is a also just a short trip (scooter or taxi) from great spots such as Mushroom Beach, Dream Beach and Sandy Bay - providing great day or evening trips for swimming, eating or admiring the sunset!
Steve was of great help through the booking process and ahead of our trip - providing prompt responses to our questions and great tips for our visit.
The staff at the villa were all very attentive to us during our stay (without being intrusive). All staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and provided great advice for activities, eating and experiencing the best of Lembongan. We felt extremely secure and well looked after during our stay at Villa Bersantai. It was a pleasure to always return after a long day exploring to a neat and clean villa (as well as being able to take a dip in the pool!)
We would highly recommend Villa Bersantai to those looking for a more personable and private accommodation option (as an alternate to the larger resorts). We look forward to our next visit!
Great (website hidden), your own pool. What more could you want? Beach view and great surf in your front yard. Highly recommend.
The reservation was canceled 67 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The stay at Bersantai was lovely - great views and a delightful hotel. Yoda the manager was great and very helpful, hooking us up with scooter rental, manta ray snorkeling and more. There was construction going on when we were there but this didn't both us too much. This is not an apartment but rather a villa in a small boutique hotel owned by an Australian family. It's a close walk from the town but up some steep stairs so not handicapped accessible. This was not an issue for us, though. Overall, a great stay! Would recommend this!
