The ultimate beach vacation!
ThefourMacs / New Delhi, India
We have spent two fantastic weeks in Villa Shanti. The Villa, the garden, the pool just gorgeous. The whole staff is super, friendly and the service is just TOP! A very special thanks goes to Ketut for her extraordinary creative cooking ( 6 stars) and to Ita. We have been taken very well care of. The whole Villa is in excellent condition and the rooms, pool, etc. were cleaned daily. Great place to spend a holiday and we will definitely come back if we have the opportunity. Villa Shanti can be recommended without any reservations. Thanks again for an unforgettable holiday!

This villa is superb!
5 von 5
Arriving in the early evening after our drive from Sanur, our party of 6 each thought they had arrived in Paradise! All 6 of the villa staff were there to greet us, and adorn us with frangipani garlands.

The setting is glorious, as the villa itself is set a little way back from (though the gardens lead to) the beach, so is surrounded by padi fields. It feels unique among the other villas on this stretch of beach in this respect, and feels 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 particularly lovely.

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”.

NOTRE SEJOUR AU PARADIS
5 von 5
Le titre résume l'ensemble; que dire de plus...?

l'accueil tout d'abord, super gentil et respectueux par toute la "famille " du staff.

l'entrée dans la propriété ensuite; et la, c'est un émerveillement total !

tout est zen et inspire la quiétude; les gargouillis de la piscine, les gazouillis des oiseaux et la villa dans son écrin de verdure... nous étions à deux doigts de verser une larme...

La suite du séjour n'a été qu'un enchantement : la cuisine locale de ketut assistée de putu nous a fait découvrir les spécialités balinaises. la discrétion des jardiniers et du gardiennage toujours très prévenants.

nous avons abusé de la fabuleuse piscine grand format et testé avec bonheur

les massages balinais organisés par ketut...

Lovina est certes assez loin de l'aéroport mais nous avons grandement apprécié

d'etres loin du tourisme de masse de kuta ( bouchons,etc...).

Merci encore pour tout, et si on avait pu on serait restés encore et encore...!

iel besser geht es nicht
5 von 5
Wir hatten die Villa für 2 Wochen gemietet und man konnte sich richtig gut erholen. Die Villa war sehr schön, hatte eine gute Einrichtung und das Essen, was Ketut jeden Abend zauberte, war hervorragend. Da können selbst die Restaurants in Lovina nicht mithalten.

Auch die anderen Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Ich würde jederzeit wieder hier Urlaub machen.
