“Loved it!”

We stayed at Villa The Mango Trees for 5 nights for the first part of our Bali Holiday with our group of 2 adults and 3 children. It is the first time we have stayed in the northern part of Bali. I found the overall experience of staying there to be excellent. The villa grounds is large and the gardens, very large pool and out door area are kept immaculate and beautifully maintained by the gardener. The villa itself is kept in fine order by the two lovely ladies who take care of the daily housekeeping. They will also happily prepare and cook meals for you at your request. All you are required to do is select what what meal you’d like, give them the necessary amount of money for the ingredients, and they will do the shopping and cook up delicious food for you fit for a king. A security guard is also employed who comes on duty in the early evening and works on until the early morning. He does a tremendous job and it’s good peace of mind knowing someone is keeping a watchful eye on things overnight. The villa is set on a black volcanic sand beach which is unique and interesting but I chose not to swim in the water because there is a fair bit of rubbish in the water which washes up on the beach. This of course is of no fault of villa staff and someone is employed to pick up any rubbish that washes up on the beach which keeps it under control. There are also hawkers that troll up and down the beach trying to sell their wares to you and will stand on the edge of the villa grounds trying to get your attention and call out to you. Don’t make the mistake I did and buy something otherwise you may get pestered on a daily basis. If you are looking for a place to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle with that little bit of added luxury, I would highly recommend this villa and can see myself returning in hopefully the near future.
