Before I became entrenched in Bali, I used to get afflicted with wanderlust every few months or so. I'd travel at least twice a year for at least a week to two at a time, more if I could squeeze out the time and money. My favourite destinations are Thailand, India, Cambodia, Vietnam and of course, Indonesia. Now that I am completely enamoured with Bali, it's the only place I want to be! I am an amateur photographer, nature lover, culture enthusiast, food & coffee addict.
When I visited Ubud a few years ago, I instantly felt the connection...it was like coming home. Padi Menari is my pride and joy and my abode when I get to escape from Kuala Lumpur metropolitan. It has been lovingly and personally enhanced with all the comforts of home and then some. Environmental conservation and cultural harmony is the essence of Padi Menari and everything that can be consciously practiced to cultivate this has been implemented. High standards and distinguished quality is another important aspect and I hope you will find it comfortable and adequate as well. Your candid feedback and suggestions for further improvements will be greatly appreciated.
My philosophy of providing equal employment opportunity to the local villagers means that the staff are not formally trained in the hospitality industry and may be lacking in ability compared to the more qualified staff at other commercial establishments. Our housekeeper and villa attendant are from a village nearby and can be quite shy. They are personally trained by villa manager, Nono and for what they may lack in skill, they make up for in honesty and enthusiasm. They are still learning to improve their communication and English skills and we hope you will not find them lacking too much. They are eager to please and will try their best to meet your needs so please do communicate with them on whatever you need.
Live and love passionately, completely and unabashedly!
