““Immaculate, serene, authentic Ubud experience!””

Reviewed 21 Sep 2014

This was our first visit to Bali. We have four children aged 13 down to 8. We spent four days in a very swish villa in Nusa Dua but the highlight of our stay was our four days in Ubud, staying in Villa Santana. I was nervous booking it because I had no idea what to expect of Bali but I was comforted by the reviews that Kasey's villas receive and let me tell you, we weren't disappointed. In fact, I'd say that the photos don't do it justice and it's even better in real life. From the moment I made the booking, Kasey, who owns the villa, made it a smooth and easy process. Not only does she employ fantastic staff and maintains the highest standards but it's all the little extras that made the difference. Once we had booked Kasey sent us a comprehensive guide detailing the names of her beautiful staff (they're amazing and nothing is too much trouble), who we could call to organise our trip from Nusa Dua to Ubud, places to eat, things to do, etc. We used her guide the whole time we were there and had some wonderful meals because of it. So, the rooms are great. The two top bedrooms look out over the rice paddies and there's nothing more serene and beautiful than to wake up to that view. It was just what we needed. The two youngest children had single beds downstairs and we all had our own bathroom. The kids loved the pool and we had some wonderful family time playing Marco Polo (I hope we weren't too loud!) and lazing by the pool on the many sunbeds or outdoor sofas and chairs. I was a bit tired on the second day so Komang, who is truly one of the most beautiful, joyful and accommodating men we've ever met, offered to take my daughter and I into town on his and Vera's scooters to buy some gluten free food for my daughter. We had so much fun. They then continued to offer us lifts from then on, which was very kind as it was very hot in the middle of the day. Komang's mother and father are to be met on the path on the way into town, where his father sells young coconuts for only a dollar. He cuts it open for you, and then after you've had the coconut milk/water, which is over a litre's worth, he then cuts up the coconut flesh. One was enough to feed our whole family of 6. He then showed us how he climbs the coconut trees - very impresive - and then showed us some plants that are grown in the area (vanilla beans, lemongrass and rice). Such a kind and simple man who wants for so little yet seems so full of peace and joy. One of the highlights of our stay was the night that Kasey organised for Putri, a young 13 year old girl, to come in and put on her makeup in front of us and traditional costume and then danced for us. It was very special. She was truly amazing. Putri's friend made up my daughter's face and then they dressed her in the traditional Balinese dance costume. We could hardly recognise our daughter - she looked so striking with the special makeup and dress. We have a girl and three boys and even the boys found this to be a very special night. It's a definite must!!! Payment is by way of donation for a local education project so it was doubly rewarding to have such a great experience and to be able to contribute to a worthy cause. We also recommend the Eco Cycling Tour, which Vera or one of the staff members can arrange for you. In fact, they'll help you with anything. The tour was downhill so the cycling was no trouble for our four children and for someone like me who hasn't had a lot of cycling experience. Very easy and enjoyable and a great lunch to be had as well. When I was looking to book a villa in Ubud many of the places that looked amazing in the photos, didn't have the best reviews, particularly around cleanliness, etc. We were so fortunate to have found Villa Santana because it was everything that the description said it would be and, once we got to see around the area, it really is one of the best positioned villas amongst the rice fields. A big thank you to Kasey, Komang, Vera and Desek and to Gede who drove us to and from Ubud. I would note that if you have anyone in your party who has difficulty walking then this villa may prove difficult because you do need to walk from where the dropoff point is. We loved the fact that we got to walk because there was so much to see along the way, but it may prove a problem for anyone who is constricted in their walking.

Response from the owner We are so pleased to hear that Villa Santana was the highlight of your family's wonderful Bali trip, and was indeed a pleasure to meet you all. Thank you for the very eloquent and comprehensive review--you have made the Santana experience come alive for potential guests! We are still smiling about Putri's dance evening, and how well Bridget followed Putri's teaching (and how grown up and different she looked in costume!). On behalf of our lovely Balinese staff, thank you again for choosing Villa Santana and for being such wonderful guests. It is our hope that all our guests can immediately feel at ease and at home here, and that they will leave with warm memories of this special place called Bali. You are now members of our 'Satori Select' group, and thus are entitled to 10% discount and special perks for your next visit!

“Location Location Locaton”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is an amazing villa in a wonderful location. The home is gorgeous, with views of rice fields all arouond. Bright and beautiful We enjoyed Noaman who looks after the outside and Fera who cooked and looked after the inside. They are lovely and took wonderful care of us. It is close to town and yet close to the rice fields which we walked every day. Swimming, in the pool and massages at the house were also highlights. We enjoyed every minute of the month we stayed here.
