What we experienced when we came to Villa Cantik was pure magic. We loved everything about it, from the absolutely magnificent staff Desak and Julia, to the house itself, that had everything we could absolutely ask for, to the wonderful garden/pool area where we spent most of our 12 days of holidays. The garden was well kept by Eddie, and the closest neighbour was an old wooden boat, made into a massage place, where we all enjoyed good massages. It was an absolute paradise, and we could not stop smiling at all the beauty and kindness we encountered. For a family of four with relatively small children (6 & 9), everything was very easy yet so different. We had to go for the three hour drive to cross the Island to get to Lovina, but it was well worth it, and no complaints from our children. The driver Putu found us at the airport, and was one of many very friendly drivers that worked for the villa. From then on we enjoyed the house and pool area, the beach with its luke warm and very calm waters (not always super clean, but still lovely for small children) and the surroundings of Lovina. One of the best experiences – and the cheapest – were the hot springs very close by, where locals and tourists alike enjoyed the warm healing waters. All in all we have nothing but praise when it comes to our trip to Villa Cantik, and we hope to come back and visit soon again. All the best,
