Many of the previous reviews cover our positive experience. The many days of sunny weather were spent using the villas impressive amenities, including organising local masseurs to provide excellent massages on the front bale. The sea was certainly not swimmable given the local village used the nearby creeks. The lovely pool,lounges and front bale were well utilised and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and polite. Iluh and Putih organised a doctor, at short notice, for one of our group. Komang was there most days and kept the gardens and pool in top condition. He also fixed a stiff, heavy, sliding door which had been rusted by sea air. Made was a very proficient, engaging security guard. The bedrooms were very comfortable and had lovely garden or sea views. An on-site laundry was also well used.Watching daily village life, from morning fishing to ducks waddling along the beach, was delightful to witness. Nearby restaurants in Lovina offered variety, value and superb food- we tried Spice Beach Club, Le Jaenzen (with “interesting”owner-chef driving us in and back) and eclectic Rikkis Bar & Bistro.
Two of our group went on the 5.45am dolphin tour with Captain Made. Though seeing the many dolphins was exciting, they both said the highlight was the amazing sunrise they saw at 6.15am from on board their klungklung.
We all enjoyed watching the superb sunsets over West Bali/Java from the beach out front of the villa.
