11 of us stayed at Malimbu Cliff villa for 3 nights. We wish it could have been more. The villa is beautiful and all the bedrooms are large with the master bedroom being enormous.The villa has a great sunset view and the pool was perfect.
The only thing better than the villa is the lovely staff who work there. All of them were incredibly friendly and helpful and the chef laid on the most fantastic food for us. We strongly recommend you try the calamari, spring rolls, beef rendang, beef salad and the mixed BBQ.
I would not hesitate to book to stay here again. It was wonderful.

Located 15 minutes north of Senggigi, where many restaurants, shops, hotels etc. are located -> convenient. The villa has great views of Bali and offers great sunsets!
Please note that the street is relatively close to the house. Usually you do not hear much, but on Sunday evening people go out with their motorbikes and this creates noise (until 10 PM only).
Layout / Design:
Very nice and modern design. All bedrooms are big enough and have their own large bath room. The master bedroom is huge, with a living room, bedroom, dressing room and huge bathroom. In all the bedrooms there is only limited space to write / read and put your books.
Big terrace with pool (18X4 meters - big enough to swim your daily mile!).
Please note that there is no washer and dryer - they give all the laundry outside (for extremely cheap rate), which is OK but in case of emergency not practical (e.g. with kids if you want to wash their clothes...).
There is not much water pressure in the master bathroom shower.
The staff is very friendly and try to accommodate you. However please note that they are not all well trained and lack of some knowledge of how to serve guests and are not very pro-active. In particular they do not know much about food and often let my diary products outside the fridge which is not good in this tropical climate. Hopefully staff will acquire more knowledge about service and how to handle food.
It goes without saying that most staff have limited English skills.
Car / Driver:
There is a car with driver available - very convenient for shorter or longer trips to explore the Island. I used this service every day, the driver was very friendly.
The chef is good, most dishes are good. Meat is not very tender (beef), fish tends to be overcooked. See above: sometimes staff let the food outside and it get spoilt - I recommend you pay attention to avoid any issues. Hopefully staff will improve their skills.
Nice villa with great views, close to Senggigi. Friendly staff, however they should enhance their knowledge.
