nous sommes francais et vivons entre bali et le sud de la france,
We stayed for 7 days. This villa is a magical oasis right in the middle of everything. It is decorated with beautiful furniture in a tasteful simple Bali way. The pool is a very nice size, big enough to swim laps and is cleaned daily. (it does not have a shallow part for small children). The area is busy and full of restaurants and shopping, yet the villa feels secluded and private.
Taxi is always easy to find and the guards are always happy to help. The villa is inside of the walls of the Semarah resort, but it is not a part of it and you do not have access to any of the facilities unless you pay for them like a visiting guest. It is next door to the potato head but you cannot access the beach through it unless you are planing to eat there, and you might need reservations as it was very busy. Public beach access is about 5-10 min walking so pretty close.
Edwin the house keeper stays on the property and is very polite and helpful. Daily cleaning seemed only to included washing dishes, bed making and cleaning bedroom floor. Our only small complaint from our stay was the the living room area, table, floors and bathrooms where not cleaned very often which was a challenge as it was raining and things got a bit messy especially after staying there for 7 days. Maybe because of rainy season, but there were many many mosquitoes day and night, Be sure to pack strong repellent, as mosquito coils did not seem to do much. Fortunately the master bed, and third bed have nets over the bed. Stella the manager was super helpful and provided us with everything we needed arranged transport and spent atleast an hour telling us where to go and what to do. Thank you!
One bonus was the espresso machine, and washing machine.
We had a fabulous time in this villa which is so well located. I'm very happy to recommend this place.
nice villa with great value, we spend 3 nights at villa manggis and very happy, the location is very strategic, in the middle of famous cafe n resto, very recommended
