Interaction with Guests
Villa Santai has a full time room boy to make your breakfasts, clean the villa, keep the pool and garden looking fantastic and to assist you with tour arrangements. He works from 8am to 4pm, but guests can ask him to leave when they want total privacy.
We had a wonderful time at Villa Sentai. We loved the little touches such as a mobile phone there for our use and soaps in the bathrooms.
Komang really looked after us and was lovely. The place was spotless and well appointed and the pool was clean and great to get cool in. Our little boy spent entire days in it!
We had a late afternoon flight when we left and Sentai was booked for another guest, so Steve arranged for us to spend the afternoon at another villa while we waited for our flight at no extra charge for which we were very grateful.
One thing to note which is not a criticism is that both the bedrooms open onto the pool and are not connected. This meant that we took turns sleeping with our 4 year old as we didn't want him to have to walk past the pool in the middle of the night if he needed us. As I said, not a criticism at all as the bedrooms were lovely. Just a note on the layout to help families with little kids.
We would absolutely come back to Villa Sentai and hope to soon!
Villa Santai was better than expected. The location was close to some small shops and a quick drive from central Ubud. The property was amazing and in near perfect condition. It was the attention to the small details that really impressed, laundry detergent, coffee, tea, butter, cooking oil, eggs, fruit and bread were all provided which was so nice!
Steve was very quick in responding to my messages and made me feel like I had all the necessary support as needed. The next time I'm in the area I will definitely consider Villa Santai again.
Villa Santai - according to the locals translates to "Villa of relaxation". The description is spot on! What an amazing place. Beautifully laid out, well equipped and a good location. We ate at Rondji restaurant which is a 5 min stroll from the villa and was blown away by this experience too. I have nothing negative to say about this pristinely kept villa, we wished we had stayed longer! Magic.
Can't rate this place highly enough! The villa is stunningly beautiful, the pool was a god send and wonderful to laze by. House was kept wonderfully clean and tidy and there are plenty of DVDs and games to keep you entertained. There are also Aussie plug converters. Location wise, it's about a 30 min stroll into central Ubud which is easily done and it's actually nice to be staying in a slightly quieter neighbourhood which is equally beautiful to explore. Fully recommend Villa Santai.
Santai nella lingua indonesiana significa relax. Il nome di questa villa non poteva essere più calzante ... una fresca e silenziosa oasi chiusa tra pareti bianche adornate di piante, un piccolo giardino con una bella piscina limpidissima, una raccolta e piccola ombrata area per meditazione, yoga, leggere un libro ... in un piacevole e tipico contesto balinese di ville vicine a piccole risaie. Villa recentemente inaugurata, ampia, spaziosa, funzionalmente ed elegantemente arredata. Nonostante sia dotata di aria condizionata è talmente fresca che non abbiamo dovuto accenderla per più di qualche minuto prima di andare a letto la sera. Il proprietario é stato gentilissimo sin dalla fase di prenotazione e sempre disponibile al bisogno ... abbiamo avuto un piccolo problema all' arrivo in piena notte a cui ha generosamente rimediato. Di deliziose colazioni, pulizie e giardinaggio si occupa un discretissimo ed amorevole ragazzo nelle cui mani vi farà piacere lasciare la villa quando uscirete per visitare ubud (10 minuti a piedi o 3 in taxi con costo contenuto) o l' intera isola, perché Ubud é in posizione strategica. La consiglio vivamente come base per esplorare Bali avendo sempre la certezza che alla sera vi aspetta la vostra fresca isola di relax ...
It was a great villa to spend holiday with family!!! The villa is completely equipped with board games and pool balloons so you wont get bored. If you bring your own car, you have to park it in front of path way to the villa. The villa keeper is very helpful as well and he serves breakfast. Overall, i love staying there and would recommend it to colleagues! Thank you

About the Host, Steve
Ubud is my favourite home, but I love visiting Thailand, Sri Lanka and Paris. I am addicted to travel and want to see a lot more of Europe and Asia.
My passion is writing. I have contribute to 4 books about Bali and am currently working on my first gay romance novel.
