“Heaven on earth !”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We spent two wonderful weeks at this beautiful villa with a party of five adults. After a long journey of 30 hours we arrived around 8 o'clock in the evening and were greeted by the entire staff. They had prepared a nice meal which was very much appreciated after our exchausting trip. The rest of our stay we enjoyed the meals prepared by the cook Suda and served by Dési. Every day we ordered our meals for the next day and Suda then went to the market to buy the ingridients at prices where in Belgium we can only dream of. Not once have we been dissapointed with these meals and we only ate outside the villa once which in fact was not as good as Suda's cooking. As we are wine drinkers, Patricia, the owner of the villa, had given us the address of a liquor shop about 30 minutes from the villa where we purchased some nice wines at very reasonable prices. We also appreciated the Bintang beer which Suda bought for us. Our kids booked various excursions with Kuta, the villa manager, who was available by phone all the time to provide us with useful information. Besides the 18 meters swimming pool, there is the meticuously maintained garden taken care of by the gardener. It is difficult to describe the feeling we experienced at this villa and the pictures on the website don't do justice to the reality. We spent quite some time in the search for a place to stay in the North of Bali and we are now, more than ever, convinced that we made the right choice with the selection of this villa. We cannot imagine any other villa offering more than what we got for that price ! We had a wonderful time and if it were not such a long journey, we would definitely come back every year to spend 2 weeks in this wonderful place . Highly recommended !

Dear Theo,
This is really great to see how you enjoy. There is no better reward for the staff and I than this kind of feedback. Be sure we will read it to the staff. We will never give up in keeping up the high level of service and maintenance of the villa. If you wish to come again, I hope it can only be even better. Thank you.
Very warm regards,
Patricia

“Stop looking now--this is it”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Villa Aparna has everything you could want. Just stop looking at other places right now:

House: It has a perfect LARGE pool with three levels (good for kids and adults alike as the infinity edge gets very deep). Surrounding the pool are a Bale and many seating areas in shade or sun. It was my goal to sit in every seat at least once! With two outdoor showers and 4 bedrooms with A/C, blackout curtains and fans sleep was deep and peaceful.

Grounds: With beautifully manicured areas, flowers,high foliage on the sides for privacy, water features, stepping stones and fountains that made lovely water sounds you could hear while getting a massage it was perfect! The gardener was never intrusive but always working to keep things great. As a bonus he always grabbed the sun cushions out of the rain when it started and set the towels out every morning. The grounds were also dutifully watched by a security man that was nice, and patrolled regularly. Though, there was not much that worried us.

Staff: Now a note on Sudapta (Chef)) and Desi (housekeeper) who took care of us every step of the way! We had many meals in the villa. Sudapta would confer with me each day for the shopping and needs and go after breakfast and get it all. Ask him to make some of his traditional Indonesian dishes like roast chicken and lemongrass veggies or Pepers Ikan (tuna in banana leaf) excellent! He even arranged a birthday cake for us to celebrate with us! Demi was always so helpful serving food and setting the table. She arranges the rooms everynight (mosquito tablets/coils/curtains/beds) so its all ready to go. She washed our clothes and cleaned everything so we never had a worry. She was also very kind to my sons!

In short there was nothing out of place. We even did a dolphin tour from the villa and booked a massage with Amy which was GREAT. It is the north and there is very little nearby--save for Lovina. Only tip I have is when you drive through Lovina or Sererit to get there GET CASH then to pay for groceries so you don't have to find a ride to go in like I did. (but it was still easy to arrange through Gusti or others)

If I would you I would book it now---Patricia is prompt and easy to work with.

“WOW - Nothing more to say really, but WOW”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I have nothing but praise for this villa. The grounds were extensive to say the least, and the accommodation was more than excellent. All the staff were attentive, courteous and spoke very good English. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We went snorkeling (that was fantastic), organised by Ketut, the manager, and had several home appointments with the local girls for pedicures, manicures, hair treatments and massages. Ketut also organised a fishing trip for the boys (early morning with the locals), which they enjoyed immensely. The only thing that could be improved at the villa is some sort of hand railing on the staircase upstairs (a little unsafe for either young or older persons). The wonderful thing about this villa is, it's very isolated, as in, you cannot walk to shops and buy groceries, the Chef does that for you (what more could you ask for). Take lots of Rupiah with you (say at least 4 million) to pay for the Chef's breakfast, lunch and dinner's (which are all reasonably priced) and any tours that you may do, as well as wine (very expensive, but that's Bali) and tips at the end for the staff. You can always get a lift into town for the ATM with the on-call driver, but that costs 250,000 rupiah ($25) return, so you may as well take as much rupiah as you can. This is a place our group could definitely return to. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Can't wait to save up the money and return.

“WOW! Stunning Location & Facilities”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Everything was perfect from start to finish. The property owner, Patricia and Kutut the manager were both very prompt at replying to our messages and always kept us informed. The Villa itself is absolutely amazing, from the bedrooms to the gardens there is a high attention to detail. Location wise it is located directly in front of the beach, great at night when all you can hear is the sound of the waves.

POSITIVES
- Staff are absolutely amazing, Sudapta is an amazing cook (which is probably why we had dinner at the Villa each night!) and Desi always has a smile on her face. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The gardens were always immaculate as was the pool and Gusti the driver ensured a comfortable drive.
- Bedrooms were huge and the attached bathrooms to each were equally amazing, Block-out blinds in bedrooms worked very well as did the Air Conditioning.
- The pool and gardens were amazing once again with a high attention to detail, always clean and tidy, as was the beach area in front of the Villa. The Pool is absolutely massive and great to see something deeper than 1.5m, with 3 depth levels across the pool (up to 2m), theres also some toy's there if travelling with children etc.
- Location - The villa is located up north which is far from the craziness of the southern beaches of Kuta etc. This will not be ideal for some but is the reason why we decided to stay here. The area is surrounding by lush forest and get's you away from everything. At the same time it's still very easy to get out to explore the area via car or scooter. Highly recommend organising a boat the collect you from the beach in front of the villa in the morning to go out and see the Dolphins, stunning without 20 other tourist boats around you.
- Food as stated was absolutely amazing and if you need Sudapta is more that happy to get you items from the store nearby, including snacks and drinks etc. Nothing was too much trouble.
- Close to snorkelling and diving locations.
- In Villa Massage - we organised for Amy to come to the Villa a number of times and the treatments were great!
- There is also a large collection of movies and satellite TV available in case of those crappy weather days or if you just want to chill out for a day.

I honestly can't think of anything negative about the property or our stay in general. The villa is located about 3 hours north of Kuta etc which will be a negative for some but this is the main reason we stayed here, to escape all that. You are still able to explorer the area and Ketut is more than happy to assist you with this.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Loved our stay here so much we have already begun making arrangements to return next year. Ideal for a group of friends and families as well. The property is big enough that you will never get in each other's way.

Thank you very much for the positive comments which I really appreciate.
As for the less positive, yes it is right, Villa Aparna is in a remote area, there are few restaurants around but nightlife is not what our guests are looking for. Roads are narrow, like every where else in Indonesia, especially to reach north Bali since we have to pass a volcano. Obviously you have not been lucky for the sea and bugs, none of our previous guests did report this so far.
Hope to see you again at Villa Aparna.

Warm regards,

Patricia
