Best time in paradise!
We have stayed at Villa Shanti previously and were so happy to have been able to return once again. The villa is amazingly beautiful, the grounds are gorgeous and the proximity to the water is such a treat. Ketut is an amazing cook and Nyomang assisted with arranging tours and drove us into Lovina when we required. I cannot day enough about the pool! WOW! Simply the best! Will definitely be returning to Villa Shanti!! Thanks so much for sharing your Villa.
Thank you so much for your kind words, we and our staff would love to welcome you again.

Pictures do not do full justice to this utterly beautiful and serene estate set back from it's own beach frontage amid lush and exquisitely maintained tropical gardens. The staff of six made every effort to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable. We especially appreciated our chef's gourmet meals, better than any restaurant on our trip. Give her free rein to choose fresh ingredients daily and present a feast for the eye and palate! Our manager/driver patiently handled all things electronic or in need of adjustment or repair, and seemed to materialize within seconds every time we needed him. The Balinese inspired architecture and interior design fit seamlessly into the setting and compare to a four star hotel for amenities and comfort. Lighting, as it is throughout the country, is subdued in all areas of the house. We recommend bringing a good quality flashlight and headlight or clip-on reading light for task lighting. There is much to do, including excellent snorkeling in Lovina, dolphin watching at sunrise in boats off the beach, and trips to the market and nearby hot springs. However once ensconced at this property you will have to pry yourself away, simply reveling in relaxation and enjoyment of your private paradise.
Thank you for this kind review. We are happy that you enjoyed our design of the house and garden, but above that we are glad that you appreciate the people working at Villa Shanti. Thanks for your stay and Hope to welcome you back.
Viel besser geht es nicht
Wir hatten die Villa für 2 Wochen gemietet und man konnte sich richtig gut erholen. Die Villa war sehr schön, hatte eine gute Einrichtung und das Essen, was Ketut jeden Abend zauberte, war hervorragend. Da können selbst die Restaurants in Lovina nicht mithalten.
Auch die anderen Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Ich würde jederzeit wieder hier Urlaub machen.

This villa is superb!
Arriving in the early evening after our drive from Sanur, our party of 6 each thought they had arrived in Paradise! All 6 of the villa staff were there to greet us, and adorn us with frangipani garlands.
The setting is glorious, as the villa itself is set a little way back from (though the gardens lead to) the beach, so is surrounded by padi fields. It feels unique among the other villas on this stretch of beach in this respect, and feels very special and secluded. The gardens are literally bursting with verdant plants and flowers – the lily ponds leading down the path to the beach are particularly lovely.
The photos on the website, although stunning, don’t do the villa justice. The villa itself is beautifully designed, unusual in its style (with the lovely thatched roof and open plan living area upstairs to provide beautiful vistas), is spacious, modernly furnished, and very well maintained.
The staff are wonderful – I know all reviews say that about Balinese staff at most villas, but here it was true (and we stayed at another where this wasn’t the case!). House “manager”, Ketut was a delight as was her assistant, Ita. Ketut’s cooking was outstanding; so much so that we didn’t eat out once in our 5 nights/6days there. Ketut asked us what we liked, we told her, and she bought the ingredients, cooked and served them to us each evening, and charged us just what she’d spent (something she recorded in meticulous detail in her notebook for us). She coped perfectly with the nut allergy of one of our party.
Of particular note is the 18 metre long “lap” style swimming pool directly in front of the villa, which allows “proper” exercise swimming (one of our party did 120 lengths one day!).
All in all Villa Shanti and the food we were served were incredibly good value, the more so by comparison with other places we stayed in Bali. Put simply, we can’t recommend the villa highly enough – it’s a delight and staying here was the highlight of our 12 night holiday.
PS. Ketut organised dolphin watching for us with Made, and our party (ranging in age from 18 to 57) thought this was “brilliant”.
Fantastisch huis en locatie!
We hebben met ons gezin fantastisch genoten in villa Shanti. Het was voor ons de laatste week van de vakantie en we hebben ons heerlijk laten verwennen door alle goede zorg en het heerlijke eten dat elke dag weer voor ons werd klaargemaakt. De villa ligt fantastisch, direct aan zee en in een prachtige aangelegde tuin. Er is een heerlijk groot zwembad.
Kortom Marja en Theo veel dank, ook voor alle goede informatie! En natuurlijke het hele team van villa Shanti, het was super!
Dank voor jullie review. Het was fijn om jullie als gast te hebben.
Kleines Paradies in Bali
Tolles Haus mit sehr gutem Ausbaustandard. Alles gut gepflegt und sehr sauber. Das etwas vom Strand zurückgezogene Haus mit dem schönen grünen Umschwung ermöglicht eine gute Privatsphäre. Man wird nicht von Strandverkäufern angegangen. Die Gartenanlage ist sehr schön und perfekt gepflegt. Ganz toll ist das 18 Meter Schwimmbecken mit guter Wasserqualität und schönen Wasserspeiern. Die Küche und Hauseinrichtung ist top.
Ganz besonders hat uns der liebenswerte Staff beeindruckt. Alle sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und verwöhnen einem in vollen Zügen. Die Kochkunst von Ketut lässt keine Wünsche offen. Echtes balinesisches Essen, das täglich mit frischen Zutaten zubereitet wird, lecker! Herzlichen Dank, wir kommen wieder.
Thanks you so much for this review. It's good to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our Villa Shanti and we hope to welcome you again in the future.
In the former capital of Singaraja (15 km away), you will find the lively hustle and bustle of the shops and markets with their smells and colours. Here you can also visit the Gedong Kirtya library with its famous Lontar manuscripts and a lot of literature. In the harbour of this northern metropolis of the island you can see the old houses from the Dutch colonial times. A 45 m high waterfall in tropical rainforest. A 1 km long (steep) hike brings you past small souvenir shops with inexpensive clothes at one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali. Enjoy the spectacular view and the sound of the water! Lovina is the ideal place to discover the underwater world of Bali. Expert diving schools, like Balispicedive, are happy to help. Dolphins in the morning at 6:00, but sometimes during the afternoon they will take you with a local boat to see the dolphins.
Golf: Golf: Handara Kosaido Golf and Country Club for golf lovers, this is an absolute 'must'. This 18-hole course is located in Bedegul (one hour drive from the villa) in the mountains, where you will find a comfortable climate (temperature). It is one of the top 5 courses in all of Asia.
