Perfect Villa for the Perfect Holiday
Review Submitted: 19 April 2011
Date of Stay: April 2011
We got to calling the villa “home” while we were there for 2 weeks-it was an oasis in the hustle, bustle & heat of Bali. Villa is on a side street just off the main drag of Sanur, no street noise at all, only an occasional rooster. Won’t rehash on the villa details-others have covered it well- it is really lovely. Will mention: Pool was well chlorinated-it was great, we used it multiple times a day. There is consistent wifi through out the villa, which is nice for skype calls & staying wired (if needed). We were able to use our wifi features on our mobiles/blackberries without a hitch. The bathrooms were a little buggy, but that’s the tropics- they put out mosquito coils nightly and did a spray down of the room. They also provided a mosquito net for our son’s crib/pack-n-play. We opted to cook some of our dinners-you can pick up provisions at Hardy’s the local grocery store. There are basic cooking utensils available in the kitchen, but if you plan on doing anything more than a basic pasta dish, you should plan accordingly. Tap water is not filtered, but there is a big jug of filtered water provided for drinking. There are a lot of ants everywhere, can’t be helped since it’s the tropics, just beware that you can’t leave food lying around. This was our first visit to Sanur- it has a nice relaxed vibe to it. The boardwalk is fantastic-nice to be away from the buzz of motorcycles and street traffic. The Villa Seriska staff goes above & beyond. They were particularly gracious with our son. Breakfast was great- ask for the banana pancakes. Mr. Ketut (chef) made us dinner 4 nights, including an incredible seafood extravaganza. He is a really skilled; pricing was reasonable & it was a nice option on lazy nights. The lovely ladies kept the villa in order, and were discreet but friendly. Thomas (driver) was available to take us on trips to Ubud (we went 3 times), and had good recommendations on a Jimbaran Bay fish restaurant and a gallery for some artwork. Nilesh (owner) was a real pleasure to correspond with in planning our stay; he dropped by a couple of times to make sure everything was going smoothly (it was). No matter the length of your stay, you will find it impossible not to be fully relaxed by the time you leave. We hope to find ourselves back at Villa Seriska in the near future.
