I would not know where to start. Villa Lumia was recommended to us by friends who stayed there last year. It did not take us long to make up our minds after they showed us several pictures of the property.
Well, let me tell you: the villa looks so much better in real. And it's already so gorgeous on the pictures. That would say it all.
Initial contact with the owners was very easy, precise and very fast. Joris would reply within a few hours despite the time difference. We were a party of 7 people landing at two different times of the same day but that did not raise any concern and pick-up was organized accordingly.
We reached the villa at night. Our friends had mentioned a "surprising path before reaching heaven". We understood when Ketut (he drives, cooks, does it all - him and his wife Komang are simply amazing) took the last turn. It was like entering a completely new world. Beautiful candles had been lit and we somehow had the feeling of entering a Church. That structure at the entrance is just AMAZING. The other part of our group was already there sipping some rose wine (get Hatten Rose if you ever go to Bali, local wine that serves very well the purpose) and we could tell by the smiles on their faces that we'd made the right choice.
I won't detail further the rooms and others (other reviews are covering everything already), I would just like to confirm that everything is actually true and does exist! Well, not everything as during our stay, we were informed that a door needed to be placed in our room. We were unsure about what that meant and found ut later it was a vintage door (beautiful!) that had been bought to add to the interior design of that room. It does not appear on the pics yet and I will try to post some of it.
Just read the other reviews, it's exactly as written, even better because you are actually experiencing the whole thing.

Staffs are friendly and willing to fulfill customers demand.
Rooms are big and clean, this is just enjoyable
We thought we had died and gone to heaven when we arrived at Villa Lumia.
The ambience, service and food was second to none.
We travelled with a large group of friends and had such a fantastic time. Due to its location we did not feel we had to keep the noise down etc. Perfect for a peaceful or noisy get together.
Thanks Ketut and team for making our stay so memorable.
Villa Lumia is extremely beautiful, well maintained, good location, great food and provides excellent services. We really enjoyed our time during staying at villa Lumia. Many thanks to Ketut, Komang, Raty and all Lumia' staff. This is the place that makes us want to be back again and again.
we were a group of 4 families who stayed in that place .. amazingly brilliant place .. if you take up this villa, do not step out as the villa itself has so much to offer . Stepping from there to town and back is a painful thing to do .. traffic in balli is killing .. there are a lot of insects which is again expected as it is in middle of the paddy fields , also you see lizards around but are harmless ,.,,
