Originally from Canada, we now live in Hong Kong. We love Bali so much that we have spent the last 4 years building our dream house there.
We loved the villa, it was beautifully decorated. Clean and bright.
We got very used to the wonderful Komang cooking us breakfast everyday. We felt very spoilt. The villa is the perfect size for a young family like us. It was also a real treat having the private pool. We had everything we could have hoped for and we hope to visit this little bit of paradise again one day xx
The beach is volcanic sand near the villa but we loved the wild aspect of this beach and the area is less touristy than seminyak and kuta which we felt us achieve more of a rapport with the locals.
Overall a perfect villa
There's only really one word that comes to mind when I think about Pantai Indah Villas now - and that is WOW.
We had such a fantastic stay there recently with my family and none of us could fault it. The villa itself has been wonderfully designed in modern balinese style with everything you could need and the service from the housekepeers Ketut and Komang, the driver Made= and the two security guards Ngurah and Ketut was incredible. Even though we tried to, they wouldn't let us lift a finger! Ketut did the grocery shopping and ironed our dresses for a wedding we attended and even cooked us all dinner on our final night. The food was exquisite, wonderful traditional Balinese food with a huge suckling pig!
Mike and Nat were also so helpful in our dealings leading up to and during our stay at the villa, organising transfers and providing helpful information.
The villa is about 1hr from Seminyak in Bali traffic and is in a more traditional Balinese village so is not suitable for anyone wanting to be 'in the thick of it'. But it is practically on the beach and is in a wonderful little area with Echo Beach Restaurant walking distance away along with a few other shops and cafes too. .
Highly recommend it to anyone going to Bali - I can't wait until we can go back!
We stayed here for four nights in July 2011 and it is absolutely gorgeous. The Villa has been finished beautifully and it feels five star. The location is about a 1 min walk to the beach (perfect for surfing or kitesurfing). The service is also fantastic with Ketut who looks after breakfast, cleaning and arranged us massages and scooter hire. Our hosts (Mike and Natalie) were also great it confirming our reservation and providing us tips and info for the region. Highly recommend that you stay here - we would love to go back!
I have known Mike and Nat now for quite some time, about 5 years through my husband who is a best friend to the two of them and are almost like family. They are both reliable, thorough, adventurous, enjoying the finer things in life and a great quality of life, always seeking the best in everything as they have done the same with their beautiful new place in Bali. They will certainly provide you with the best of the best in Bali. Definitely can't go wrong and highly recommended.
