A little Gem
We have just returned from an amazing Holiday hosted by Anna and Alex , the villa is even better than the photos depict , we stayed for 2 weeks and were totally relaxed , any has employed local staff and they all carry out a great job looking after their gusts , Pushpa in Reception worked really hard making sure we had everything and in time she arranged all our trips and massages everything was on time and the driver / guides were excellent . We had most of our meals in the villa all meals are cooked in the main building and brought to your villa the food was excellent and great value , there is a mini bar in the kitchen topped up daily
The area is really deserted and most of the time you will be the only ones on the beach , all the locals are really friendly and are genuinely pleased to see you , the area has very few tourists and is very quiet so you really need to be prepared for solitude we loved every minute and felt really sad to leave , Anna and Alex have put their Hale art into the properties and are part of the community this is a real experience you must try ,
Be aware you will need local currency you will not be able to use credit cards or other currencies , their is an ATM 10 minutes away if you run short , also if you drink wine and spirits you can get from the villa but they are on the expensive side (but good quality wine)if you drink a lot , you will only get beer from the local shops ,
There are a couple of local restaurants but they are too far to walk at night the roads are dark , there is a small hotel next door who have a restaurant if you feel like a change .
Overall an amazing experience , you are completely looked after and made to feel really welcome.
Thanks Anna and Alex
So Many Wonderful Places to Go in Bali Just Not Here
There are many good things about Octopus villas like when you close the wood doors to the villa you find yourself in a beautiful setting. But if you leave the very small confines of the villa you find yourself in no mans land. Nothing but a very dusty dirt road leading to the highway on one side and once you get to the highway there is nothing there and on the beach side unless you have on heavy fin boots the rocks are impossible to walk across. The snorkeling is a highlight for this spot. So for a 24 to 48 hour stay where you want to lock yourself up in a small compound this is very good. But the 2 to 3 plus hour drive from Ubud or the airport or just about anywhere else that you want to go on Bali makes the short stay a very unpleasant option. One final point the staff in general is very nice and works hard to support their guests. But we had a couple of issues.1. Th owner forgot to order a message for us on our last day that we really needed and 2. The two rental cars that the staff arranged did not have any air conditioning and the one that took us to the airport did not have seat-belts for one of our passengers while the driver drove like a crazy person through mountain and busy roads.. We found the taxis to be excellent everywhere else on in Bali just not at this location.
Not really clear why the guests are so disappointed with the stay as they rent the villa with its territory and not the surrounded area. All the North part of Bali is with pebble beaches. Also not clear why the guest is giving wrong information about our transportation, as all cars are air-conditioned. Before the guests book we always say that we are happy to accommodate you if you consider yourself a happy person. As if you happy you tend to notice good things.
3/5 lots of pros and cons .. definitely safe clean and beautiful ... more details to follow
Pros- remote quiet and private .. staff very attentive and helpful .. clean.. massages were incredible both in price and quality
Cons- call to prayer at 5:15 am .. loud and awakened us every morning .. followed by roosters crowing and dogs barking and this god awful noise the cars made .. was hoping for rest and relaxation .. little sleep past 5 am .ended up going to bed by 8-9 to compensate... air conditioning was not very great ... it cooled but often not comfortable ...food when ordered was always on time .. and good quality
The villa we stayed in was beautiful but the foliage and trees were so overgrown that it was difficult to find sun and other villas close by had much more open areas offering sun.. .. it was truly beautiful but here is where our issues were...
We found a resort next door and it was bigger and more social .. we met people there who offered assistance with tours/rides for cheaper than our resort .. when we utilized their services .. our resort “found out” and somehow that was seen as negative .. no one told us we were locked into using only services from our resort .. it got a bit ugly and we are sorry for that but we would t do anything differently in the future .. overall the resort was beautiful .. staff was attentive and friendly and kind ... it just turned into something more than it didn’t need to be ... definitely worth a try .. if quiet secluded is what you are looking for ...
Incredible , quiet and relaxing.
This place is magnificent if you are looking for a getaway in a more private side of the island. Also, perfect if you want to try scuba diving! 10/10 recommendation
Loved our stay
Anna and her staff were all very kind and helpful. They were quick to respond to our questions and always made sure we were happy. Provided us with snorkeling equipment to explore a beautiful reef just in front of the villa and a scooter to drive to the nearby waterfall, temple and weaving factory.
The food that was served at the villa was incredible, excellent menu and all the dishes exceeded our expectations.
The villa itself is very clean at all times and beautifully decorated. All the facilities are comfortable. The quality of everything was exceptional and the prices were very fair.
We absolutely loved our stay here and were sad to leave. Hopefully we’ll be back!
Good service, beautiful spot!
Thanks to Anna and her staff
