Firstly the beauty of the staff is what shines through to make this villa bliss. They are such friendly and hospitable people, nothing was too much for them, and everything was done with a sincere smile. The lovely Kadek was the most amazing and versatile chef that fed our big extended family reunion group, her meals were one of the highlights of the trip. Each time we went out for a meal, we would comment that the food was way more superior at the villa! She also stepped up when the villa manager was busy with a family matter and she handled that with ease too. The Villa and grounds, as you can see from the images that you have probably perused, are magnificent, with the gentle and zen Balinese flavor flowing throughout. I loved the sculptures in the garden and the main bathrooms especially, adding a modern and artistic touch. Sitting on the front deck by the beach with a delightfully mixed cocktail at night was bliss. We didn't swim in the sea there, as it was not advised, but the lovely pool sufficed, and the long walks along the beach were just wonderful. Further up the beach there is horse riding, and a turtle sanctuary, there is also a bar/restaurant in a Flamingo Club (Can't quite remember the name) which will soon have a butterfly reserve, birds and other animals to visit.. nice for kids. One of the best things about the location is that it is quiet and not touristy, yet it is only about half an hour from Ubud. You can pay to get masseurs and manicures etc to come to the villa, and enjoy them in one of the beautiful areas provided. We got a Yoga instructor one day but I wouldn't recommend him, perhaps ask for a female. Our guy (can't remember the name) just wanted to do his own thing irrespective of his 'clients', who struggled and were ignored ... one was pregnant, 2 were 80 and one had bad knees... he did not take any of this into account and just practiced his own high level yoga... not a pleasant experience. Yes Villa Ylang Ylang is expensive but it's worth every penny!! I dream of returning.…
The villa is right to the beach which you can access directly. Due to the corals it's not very advisable to take a swim right in front. The villa also was built a few years ago so time took it's toll. The staff is very friendly and makes you really feel at home. Especially Kadeh the chef is the best cook we ever experienced in a villa (we stayed in 8 other villas before). Trust me, if my wife says that Kadeh is the best, than there's no doubt! From eggs benedict as breakfast, over pizza as a lunch or snack to an Michelin dinner of Indonesian dishes or Fillet mignon she'll do it all!
The most beautiful villa ever, elegant and stylish with full view over the sea. The staff spoiled us every day with a smile, nothing was too much it’s truly a dream holiday to stay here. They have special personal trainers and a menu for a healthy stay, after all the natural juices, we felt like 10 years younger after our visit!
Perfect location right on the surf beach, in a quiet isolated region away from the hustle and bustle. A great way to relax. This 6 bedroom villa is opulent with modern Indonesian finishes. The staff are very attentive, friendly and always at hand, without being intrusive on privacy. All meals are included, cooked to order and a wide range to chose from. Massages can be arranged for an additional cost. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
This review is long overdue. We had the pleasure of renting out Villa Ylang Ylang in Bali for a holiday with our extended family of 7 adults and 3 children between 2nd - 8th September 2017. From start to finish Rene has been wonderful in being very prompt in responding to all our queries (of which there were many) and helping to process the booking seamlessly. I would highly recommend Villa Ylang Ylang and booking through Rene in Air B&B. We were able to get in touch with the Villa manager, Dewa and arrange for everything prior to our arrival including pickup from airport, meals for the first day, pool toys for the kids and transport arrangements for the duration of our stay. The villa is spectacular and located in a quaint village and just opposite to a beautiful black sandy beach. We had booked the whole villa which consisted of 6 bedrooms with 2 that over looked the ocean with their own balcony and plunge pools. The villa also consists of a lovely main pool overlooking manicured gardens and the ocean. For the evenings should you choose to stay in there is a large screen movie room with access to huge range of movies along with Netflix and Apple TV. The wifi facilities are excellent and allows you to stream your own music in various parts of the villa both indoors and outdoors. The location of the villa allows for easy access to Ubud ( 30 minutes by car) and many more of the wonderful sights and adventures of Bali which are a short distance away. We were also able to book daily massage treatments at a very reasonable price which would be carried out in some of the most gorgeous locations in various parts of the villa. The chef at the villa was truly exceptional and we would arrange for the menu for the whole day in the day prior and just enjoy the various meals through the course of the day. All ingredients were bought fresh from the market every day. During our six nights stay we experienced a range of delicious meals consisting of Balinese, Thai, European, American cuisine and a fantastic seafood BBQ along with a very special bonfire on the deck by the lagoon to celebrate a birthday of one of our family members. Breakfasts consisted of eggs, pancakes and waffles to order along with amazing fruits and standard cereals. What makes this place truly stand out is not only the location and the facilities but the fantastic staff who were always there to help with anything we needed. There was an instance where one of our family members broke his only prescription spectacle frame. This happened right before we were about to go out for a half day excursion. The manager of the villa, Dewa, was informed and requested to find out where we could get it fixed. To our surprise by the time we returned he had the frame replaced with a new one matching the previous style and at a very reasonable price. I could just go and on about this amazing place and the wonderful people who run it. A truly beautiful experience for the entire family and great value for money. We just didn't want to leave and will definitely be back. A big thank you to Rene, Dewa and the rest of the team at Villa Ylang Ylang. …
Villa Ylang Ylang is amazing and great value for money. Just spent 10 days here and couldn't get enough of the ocean views which were picturesque.The staff are friendly and attentive and could not do more than enough to help. All the delicious meals and gourmet dishes organised by the staff were simply lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with the family, relaxing by the pool, swimming, the massages which were so wonderful. This was a lovely stay in a great place and I’d do it again. Ndumiso.
