• “This is by far the best villa we’ve ever stayed. The villa layout, the grounds, the pool, the service together made this truly an unforgettable stay. Our family with two young kids were so relaxed that we hardly left the villa except for some grocery shopping and snack run to Alfamart. The Layout The villa is exactly as posted on AirBnB, in fact I will say it’s even better than the pictures. It is situated away from the beach, surrounded by rice paddies from all three sides. This is a key differentiator compared to nearby villa, as it gives you complete privacy while at the same time, very easy access by simply walking along a path with lotus pound. As it is surrounded by a tropical garden and manicured lawn, you truly feel like royalty passing time at a summer retreat. The villa has two bedrooms on the ground floor and a master bedroom upstairs, each with ensuite bathroom. Each bathroom comes with two sinks which is very handy. Each bedroom also has large glass sliding door, the door has a latch that’s’ high enough so that kids can’t reach to unlock it. Important feature for parents concerned about kids getting into the pool unsupervised. The fridge is large in size with an ice machine, that really comes in handy. Upstairs is a huge living room area, and cathedral style high ceiling. Every night we would enjoy Wonderful place to relax if you want to get away from the sun or gather around after dinner for a movie. There are huge selections of DVDs to choose from and many books if you are interested in reading. When we arrived the fridge was already filled with complimentary soft drinks, beer, watermelon and other fruits. The grounds The grounds are meticulously maintained, and we felt we were in a botanical garden. In the evening, the entire place lights up and gives you that majestic feel. My daughter loved the little fishing pond to feed the fish in the morning. The Pool The pool is HUGE, definitely the largest I’ve seen in all the villas we’ve stayed. It has shallow end and deep end. It is also very well maintained and cleaned every day in the early morning by one of the staffs. The service What made our stay truly memorable is the staff. Nyomang, the driver is accessible 24 hours. If we needed to pick up something from the local market, he would take us on a scooter. There’s also a jeep available. Ketut , the woman of the house made wonderful Indonesian dishes and also spaghetti meat balls, in fact we ate all three meals daily at the villa! You just have to pay the cost of the ingredients! We also had our laundry washed and ironed again all complimentary. Of course to provide a complete unbiased review, I also have to note a few things to be aware of. The room upstairs is not very well insulated due to the design material used, so don’t expect the room to cool down when you turn on the AC or the fan. Best thing to do is simply open the balcony doors and you get a wonderful draft (breeze), especially in the evening, so there’s’ absolutely no need to turn on the AC. I would also caution if kids are running upstairs, you’ll definitely hear every footsteps so if you are a light sleeper downstairs be prepared. Other than that, I can’t’ say enough about how great this place is. You really have to experience it yourself. AS for us, we are definitely keen to stay at the villa again and hopefully for a longer period of time.”

    Nous avons séjourné à la Villa Shanti pour notre lune de miel. 14 jours de pur bonheur, de calme, de zen, de relaxation. Toute l’équipe sur place fait en sorte que vous soyez dans un niveau de confort et de bien-être parfait. Ketut, la maîtresse de maison saura vous faire chavirer avec ses recettes savoureuses et ses cours de cuisine. Vous pouvez aussi vous faire masser dans la cabane au fond du jardin au son des vagues. Un vrai bonheur. Si vous hésitez alors foncez vous ne le regretterez pas !

  • Vom ersten Blick auf die Villa überwältigt, dann kommt es immer besser: der Pool ist fantastisch, der Garten gepflegt und mit vielen interessanten Arten bepflanzt, der schwarze Strand eine schöne Abwechslung und das Meer herrlich ruhig und warm. Aber das Beste ist der Service, das freundliche und herzliche Personal, stets bereit aber immer unaufdringlich und diskret. Allen voran Ketut, die ausgezeichnet kocht, aber alle sind zu loben, genauso wie die hervorragende Masseuse Made. Kurz: wir kommen nächstes Jahr wieder- Danke Marja und Theo für dieses Kleinod in Bali

    Onze verwachtingen zijn ruimschoots overtroffen. Een mooi eiland, prachtige villa, zwembad en tuin maar jullie staf heeft de vakantie onvergetelijk gemaakt. Niets was hun teveel om het ons naar de zin te maken. Ketut heeft fantastisch gekookt. Een echte aanrader is om met haar naar de lokale markt te gaan en inkopen te doen en ‘s avonds samen met haar Indonesisch te koken. Los van een aantal excursies hebben we heerlijk kunnen ontspannen. We hebben een prachtig verblijf gehad en komen zeker nog een keertje terug. .

  • Alles Spitzenklasse, von der Lage, über den top gepflegten Garten, die wundervollen indonesischen Gerichte von Ketut. Auch die Einrichtung und das wunderschöne Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen. Auch ein Ausflug mit dem Jeep ist ein Erlebnis. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

    From 25th. May 2017 onwards we stayed for 10 days in Villa Shanti. Together with 6 adults we had a splendid holiday that makes it hard to decide where to start. The staff, the villa, the region, it all was superb. The hospitality of the staff at the villa is great, they all are so kind and always willing to help. For us it was the first time at Bali and their tips, advices and support was very welcome. During our stay we celebrated our 35th. wedding anniversary at the villa and every staff member was more than willing to make it a great party. The cleaning was perfect, the garden was eye catching and we felt very safe and secure. Eating in the villa is a pleasure. Ketut is a real queen of the kitchen and prepared us every day a very tasteful breakfast and dinner. The villa is superb! The architecture of the villa is very special and is quite different (read: more beautiful) compared to all the other ones in the neighbourhood. From day one we felt us at home. We would recommend villa Shanti for those who want to visit Lovina. Before we booked this holiday we read a lot about Bali, Lovina and villa Shanti. Now we are back at home we unanimous agreed that most of the previous reviews are so true. Certainly a warm recommendation to consider if you want to go to Lovina.

  • Our family stayed in the villa for nearly a week in June and had a wonderful stay. If one wishes to relax – there is a fabulous pool, plenty of shade, and great beach views. When we reluctantly decided to venture from the comfort of the villa and its lush grounds, the staff arranged excellent day trips: a day of scuba diving and tours of local sites. The cook is excellent, and we ate like kings for the full stay. This villa is on our short list of “must return here”.

    Een dikke 10 krijgen van ons de Villa en de medewerkers. Wat een leuke en gastvrije mensen werken er bij Villa Shanti. Zo wil je vakantie vieren…., in alle rust en luxe die je maar wenst. Er is heeeerlijk voor ons gekookt en het huis en de tuin werden iedere dag schoongemaakt. Massage aan huis, scooter huren, dagtochtjes, enz, enz, alles werd in overleg voor je geregeld.

  • A dream came true! We travelled 5 weeks in Indonesia and this place was by far the very best! Luxurious house with a beautiful garden directly at the seaside. A huge private swimming pool. The staff gave us all VIP treatment and managed to be invisible. The freshly prepared meals were absolutely delicious. We sure will come back!!!!!!

    After having visiting the southern part of Bali previously, we decided to try the northern part of the island, and were able to find this amazing villa. Complete with a full-time staff and perhaps the best private pool we’ve ever had, this villa experience was fantastic. Excellent (and extremely affordable) meals prepared lovingly by their super chef Ketut, while the rest of the staff was always there if we needed anything, always available, always helpful, and gave us all the privacy we needed. Know that this is the quiet part of the island, which we wanted. Can’t wait to visit Bali again, and hope to stay again at Villa Shanti!
