Coming from Sanur, we arrived in Paradise! The setting is glorious. The villa is set back from the beach, so is surrounded by padi fields. It is unique among the villas on this beach; it’s special and secluded. The gardens burst with verdant plants and flowers – the lily ponds to the beach are gorgeous. The photos can’t do it justice. It’s beautifully designed, unusual in its style, is spacious, modernly furnished, and very well maintained. The staff are wonderful. House “manager”, Ketut was a delight as was her assistant, Ita. Ketut’s cooking was outstanding – we didn’t eat out once in our 5 nights/6days. Ketut asked what we liked, bought, cooked and served them to us each evening, and charged us just what she’d spent. She coped perfectly with the nut allergy of one of our party. All in all Villa Shanti and the food we were served were incredibly good value, the more so by comparison with other places we stayed in Bali. We can’t recommend the villa highly enough – it’s a delight.
