We were a three generation family of 9 including a 4 year old, a nine year old and
9 month old twins. The concept was to have time out without household chores and allow kids and parents to simply relax for nearly 2 weeks. This villa fitted the bill exactly. The villa is beautifully styled with high class but simple furnishing and positioned right on the beach. Well set up for children too, there was a cupboard of toys and a huge box of Lego! Two cots and high chairs had been provided for the twins.
We were greeted with a fruit juice and marigold garlands and the staff from that first minute could not have been more friendly and helpful.
The cooking was fabulous and they were happy to cater for both the adults and children. Cars were available at small cost to visit local places of interest.
On the final evening we were told that dinner was a suprise and we were treated
to the most sumptuous Indonesian feast including suckling pig. After dinner we were entertained by two temple dancers who were the real thing not a tourist take off. So elegant and skilled they were perhaps the best temple dancers I had ever seen and I have seen a few!
The only hiccup in the whole holiday was transport from the airport in Dempasar to Lovina, a three hour drive. We had arranged this ahead of time and we were told there was no need to bring child car seats for the twins because they would be supplied. There were seats provided but not up to international standards. If we were going again we would take our own.
However all in all, this villa has a lot to recommend it, most importantly the wonderful staff!
