Located in the heart of the jungle, yet just a few minutes ride from the well known Ubud, this villa is the perfect place for an authentic Bali experience.
The small village of Bongkasa is a hidden heaven surrounded by rice field’s terraces and the Balinese community living there is friendly and still genuine. The land offers several activities to do like rafting (at walking distance) elephant park, chocolate park, waterfalls, temples.
The villa has a fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 private bathrooms and a charming dehor.
The 3 traditional wooden gladak are located on a cliff top secluded garden overlooking the river.
The astonishing view of the two volcanos Gunung Batur and Agung makes this place magic and unique.
Accommodation at the villa was good. Big villa, large clean pool. A nice private location, close to restaurants and shops.
We spend almost three weeks in January/February 2014 at villa Laplancha and it was a great experience. The place is spacious and has a nice garden with a well maintained pool (9mx3m). Every day staff was at the villa to clean and do the beds. If you have laundry they take care of that too. The villa is right in the heart of Seminyak, very close to "Eat Street" but absolutely quiet. All restaurants are in walking distance (2 min. to Ultimo, 3 min. to the supermarket). Ilios provided us with a scooter ($5/day) from the beginning so we were able to drive to beaches nearby.
The two bedrooms are fully equiped with aircon and have ensuite bathrooms. In the open livingroom and patio you will find several old balinese furniture and day beds. Very relaxing if you want to spend a day "at home".
Contact with Ilios during our stay was excellent and we can fully recommend this place to any other travellers.
The Villa is very spacious and with most you need to spend a wonderful stay. The location is great, but on a little ally, so you need walk about 2 to 3 blocks to the main street where all the restaurants, stores, etc. are.
The veranda and the pool are great! Ilios is a very kind host!
I will recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Seminyak.
