We made a last minute booking request with for Villa Amrita and received an almost immediate response from Jon who was super friendly, professional and efficient. Jon kindly arranged for a Seminyak pickup to suit our needs and before we knew it we were in Villa Amrita heaven.
The villa was everything the photos promised and more with friendly attentive staff, immaculately clean and fresh surrounds and everything we could have wanted.
The tour and bike ride with Wardita was an absolutely incredible experience and is a must. We felt like kids again and the scenery was breathtaking. The white water rafting was was also good fun, not too rough and gave us a great tour past all the super premium hotels that looked crowded and cheap compared to our villa.
The biggest challenge we faced at the villa was deciding weather to float around the pool with a drinking coconut, a wine or a Bintang.
We can't speak highly enough of the villa and staff who made our stay everything a holiday should be. Our only regret was wasting time in Seminyak and not spending more time in Ubud and at Villa Amrita. We'll be back and bringing friends with us.
