Das Paradies gibt es doch !!!!
Ralf Lipka / Haren
Arriving in the early evening after our drive from Sanur, we arrived in Paradise! All 6 villa staff were there to greet us, with frangipani garlands. The setting is glorious, as the villa itself is set a little way back from the beach, so is surrounded by padi fields. It is unique among the villas on this stretch of beach, and is very special and secluded. The gardens are literally bursting with verdant plants and flowers - the lily ponds leading down the path to the beach are gorgeous. The photos on the website, although stunning, don't do the villa justice. The villa itself is beautifully designed, unusual in its style (with the lovely thatched roof and open plan living area upstairs to provide beautiful vistas), is spacious, modernly furnished, and very well maintained. The staff are wonderful - I know all reviews say that about Balinese staff at most villas, but here it was true (and we stayed at another where this wasn't the case!). House "manager", Ketut was a delight as was her assistant, Ita. Ketut's cooking was outstanding; so much so that we didn't eat out once in our 5 nights/6days there. Ketut asked us what we liked, we told her, and she bought the ingredients, cooked and served them to us each evening, and charged us just what she'd spent (something she recorded in meticulous detail in her notebook for us). She coped perfectly with the nut allergy of one of our party. Of particular note is the 18 metre long "lap" style swimming pool directly in front of the villa, which allows "proper" exercise swimming (one of our party did 120 lengths one day!). All in all Villa Shanti and the food we were served were incredibly good value, the more so by comparison with other places we stayed in Bali. Put simply, we can't recommend the villa highly enough - it's a delight and staying here was the highlight of our 12 night holiday. Ps. Ketut organised dolphin watching for us with Made, and our party (ranging in age from 18 to 57) thought this was "brilliant".

Awesome!
Sabrina Dresmann / Germany
ich war mit 4 freunden vom 05.11.12-17.11.12 in der villa shanti und muss sagen, wir haben das paradies gefunden. alles, wirklich alles stimmt. das haus, der garten,die einrichtung,der pool,die umgebung aber vor allem die crew. ein großes lob an die netten leute, die immer im hintergrund blieben aber uns trotzdem nah waren. irgendwie ''witterten'' sie unsere bedürfnisse,haben gekocht wie ein 5 sterne haus, alles sauber und ordentlich gehalten, wie man es selten sieht,uns betüddelt und betreut wie könige, haben uns die menschen in der umgebung näher gebracht,uns sehr viel unterstützt bei allen fragen und nöten.ich vermisse alles heute schon und werde bestimmt wieder hinfahren. macht weiter so und bleibt alle gesund und munter.

17 dagen genieten in villa Shanti
Leon / Netherlands
All in all we can really only say that this was the perfect stay. The staff is always reliable and friendly, thoughtful and in a good mood. The Villa is stunningly beautiful and tastefully equipped and is surely among the best accommodations of entire Bali, also because the staff is sooooo nice! We could ask for anything, even organization of trips and conversation to locals. By the way: Leave the dinner choice to Ketut: you will always be served a 5 ***** meal (try the Labu Siam vegetable as a side dish). Anything that’s possible will be arranged for you. There is nothing that we could criticize. We cannot recommend the Dolphin trip, because it is more like a Dolphin hunt: you will see approx. 55 boats chasing dolphins that come to the surface to eat something. We rarely saw some dolphins from about 50m away and then we decided to return because we didn’t wanna be part of the hunt. What we really recommend is to visit the Buddhist Temple, the Munduk Waterfalls and the Giant Tree (on the way to the Munduk Waterfalls) and snorkeling in Menjangan and Tulamben. Finally, this was the perfect vacation, and not only because of Bali and its attractions, at least of the same importance is the Villa’s staff! One word: Awesome!

This has been the ultimate holiday
B,E,H & B.
De weg er naar toe was lang en bochtig, maar bij aankomst werden we hartelijk ontvangen door Ketut en de rest van de staff. Na een welkomsdrankje gingen we de villa verkennen. van foto's op internet hadden we al gezien dat het er mooi uitzag, maar in het echt wss het nog beter. We hadden de gehele villa voor ons tweeen.... wat een luxe. We hebben hier heerlijk genoten van de zon, de rust, de tuin en het zwembad en natuurlijk de bediening. De villa is 5 sterren waardig. Ketut heeft al die dagen voor ons gekookt. De eerste dagen vroeg ze wat we wilden eten, maar we hebben haar de vrije hand gegeven. En met succes. We hebben iedere dag heerlijk gegeten.

A wonderful week at Villa Shanti
Family K. / Singapore/Amsterdam
Everything you need to return rested, relaxed, happy and healthy. We had a fantastic 2 weeks here at Villa Shanti with teh help of ketut's fantastic food ( we especially liked her fried prawns, mie goring, pancakes and greens) The girl for the washing and keeping everything spottless, Nyomang taking us back and forth to Lovina and arranging trips and putu and ketut for taking care of the pooland grounds - it all added up to un ultimate holiday. All staff is kind, friendly and caring. our son celebrate his 15 birthday here and the staff presented him with a plate full of balineese treats and each greeted him. We highly recommend Arrow Dive Centre in Lovina. Nyomang can put you in touch with Buddhah. We saw the Buddhist Monastery not far from the villa. we spend a lot of time in the loungers, in the pool and walking on the beach. This is a vacation we will never forget and hope some day to return. Thank you!
