We were very happy in this house, and loved the swimming pool, the gym house, and the house by itself. It was of course too big for just the two of us, but we really enjoyed it. Jeff and Dhini have been very kind guests, Dhini even made sure Vina had the Javanese breakfasts she wanted! And I personally recommend Jeff's home made wine !
it was a very good holiday break, and I think we will come back on our next trip to Bali.
THE GOOD: The villa itself is stunning. It has a beautiful design, and a very nice pool.
We needed to adjust our dates by one day due to our flights being cancelled and Jeff and Dhini were kind enough to do this for us with no fuss, this was very much appreciated.
The Indonesian breakfast was absolutely delicious.
The staff did some shopping for us, which was helpful.
We never actually met Jeff as he was too busy.
Dhini and the two staff didn't realise I know Indonesian, so I had to listen as they discussed how much of a cut to add on top of some of the services they were organising for us, right in front of us. I don't particularly mind, but it did leave a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.
We had a few mix ups with communication and organisation. The staff were often absent for long lengths of time so it was difficult to request anything, however you may like this if you want to have more time alone. Unfortunately Dhini was often not available by the methods of communication she'd recommended so we spent quite a bit of our trip waiting around for things we'd organised but unable to contact Dhini or find the staff to speak to to verify whether it had been cancelled or not.
Although they advertise free breakfast, the day before we were due to arrive we received a message to say this meant breakfast was free on the first day and $5 per person thereafter. I feel this is a bit sketchy as we'd booked months prior, but were only told after it would be too late to rebook or cancel. On the other hand, the Indonesian breakfast, when you do get them to cook it, is abundant and delicious so it is possibly worth the extra cost. I just don't appreciate surprise costs.
The pool uses a high concentration of copper ions, which damaged the colours on some of our swimwear, so ladies be careful not to wear your best bikini in the pool.
The ad doesn't mention there is a dog at the property. It is a mangey, one eyed thing that the two staff insist is the "house dog", in any case it feels comfortable hanging out in the lounge room of the villa. After asking the staff several times to get rid of it, unsuccessfully, I contacted Dhini who said there was no pet on the property.
The wifi didn't work until the last day of our stay, despite informing them about it on the first morning. This was disappointing as we all had some work responsibilities to attend to while away, but were unable to do so.
OVERALL: Unfortunately it just had that feel of them trying to ring a little bit more money out of us at every turn or being absent altogether, which was most disappointing. It was a surprise as they've had such good reviews.
Thank you for the review we are GRATEFUL with this, to keep up the standard of our services. Firstival about the breakfast ; we never advertise daily breakfast including.. even tough we offer 1 breakfast and the rest the staff can go for groceries and cook for the guest.
About Jeff absent ; Jeff wasn't there as he was on business trip and I was there on the arrival day, either me or him is the same as we are husband and wife, important thing is that there is someone to be there explaining and greeting the guest .
About some cut to add on top of the service; I dont know exactly what its does mean, thing is that we did double groceries that time, staff already bought thing for breakfast for the next day and I also bought another set of breakfast in fact we spend around $70 all together for this breakfast, so I said if we still have something left keep it for you(the staff).
Alice not there to listen what I explain about general info of the property ;what time staff working ? what breakfast to be serve ? what cost if the staff doing lunch/dinner? I felt like she want me to beggar off, checking the house like crazy event not giving me time to introduce myself the staff and the house, they are bit rude walkin the villa, checking all the bedroom before we please them do to so. the other guest just simply walk in and " thinking you are not there "
For the extra cost of cooking lunch/dinner ;as this is extra job for the staff ( going to groceries,preparing the food,cooking, serving,clear up) they deserve to earn some extra money for extra job,this is not goes to villa its goes directly to the staff, we want to help the staff to have extra money as its nothing for such as services
we are recommend her to use our driver so they will easily reach the villa , without getting lost as many driver dont know or even speak english to give direction. Its not our responsibilities if the driver she use from sedimen dont actually know the area
About the "mangey dog" , we actually kept this dog in the staff house (which located just next door to the villa), staff rescued him from the street and they stayed there after that. the other guest (friend of Alice was giving food to him that's why he enter the villa). This is the first time I had such as complaint from the guest about this.
About the trip : Alice asked me to organize boat trip "private charter boat" after long search finally we had 2 option for her, nicely we propose for her thru email and airbnb message, this was never answered in return she was compaining about the dog also cant contacted me. I never had phone call or anything regarding this. Its not hard to contact me ..SIMPLY just asked the staff to call me and speak with me, if you dont have local number or phone provider not covering up the area what to do? there is almost 24h staff in the villa
OVERALL : we all Nengah and wayan (2 lady staff ) and pool guy don't have any good impression about her after all, never smile, return greeting, or saying thank you for the help not even bye bye when the left, plus losing the registration card of the motorbike in the end of the stay, unfortunately they are the worst guest we ever had in the villa ...
we had a wonderful stay! the house is fantastic, exactly the peaceful area we were hoping for! although the house was a little big for just the two of us, we certainly enjoyed the size of the pool!
the staff are also lovely!
thank you dhini and jeff for this wonderful time!
Nous avons passé 14 merveilleux jours à la villa Puri Shanti. Le jardin et la piscine sont magnifiques et toute la décoration de la maison est très soignée. La gentillesse et le sourire de toute l'équipe sur place toujours aux petits soins, discrète et attentive rendent le séjour encore plus agréables. Un merci tout particulier à Jeff et Dhini pour leur accueil, leurs conseils et les bonnes adresses. Nous étions tous très tristes de quitter ce lieu si magique.
Great experience and great villa! What a nice surprise to see this villa even better than the picture already very beautiful! Wish I could stay longer! Bedrooms are awesome, living room is big and just in front of the enormous pool. Many places to chill…the bale is the best!! even a private gym so well equipped! The garden is also huge... kids were so happy to play and enjoy so much their time. Staff all day and security at night! All the family felt so comfortable, relax, safe and so lucky to have this unforgettable experience! The best!
