Best holiday ever *****

As far as we can tell, there is no better place to stay when visiting Bali: the luxurious villa is accommodated to perfection. Even while traveling with young kids, Villa Sali will live up to all your needs. Not in the last place thanks to the unlimited hospitality of Iluh and Sayu, who made sure we had the best holiday ever. From the shuttle service when we arrived late at night, to the amazing cooking skills that are developed to perfection: we feel lucky to have experienced such a great stay this summer. The extensive standard menu could also be adjusted whenever we would have a request to taste something that was not listed! The ladies arranged everything we could possibly desire: watching dolphins early in the morning, day trips to go snorkling or visit places all over Bali, massages in the afternoon, going out for a dinner on Sunday evening: they managed it all. In addition to Iluh and Sayu, the staff is completed by an own security guard Dedi (who introduced himself the first night, greeted us every night though kept his distance to “keep out of the way”… we spoiled him a bit too by serving him a drink at the beginning of his night shift ? ) and the gardener Agus who stole our heart by picking fresh coconuts out of the palm trees so we had the freshest coconut juice ever! His effort to preserve the garden as the ultimate paradise is much appreciated. The only bad thing is to say goodbye on the last day, we felt sad and some tears were dropped. Not just by us, as well as by the staff: in three weeks, friendship grew and we did not want to say goodbye. That’s why we only said “see you next time”, as we intend to visit Villa Sali again. Words cannot describe what we experienced yet all of the posts here on TripAdvisor seem to have a common storyline: high rating, unlimited hospitality and for sure a highly recommendable accommodation *****
