When I think of Bali the first feelings that came to mind is heaven and we did discover a slice of heaven during our visit. Read our complete Villa Air Bali Review below.
VILLA AIR BALI REVIEW
Just off of the street of the lively and famous Seminyak area in Bali, Villa Air is perfectly situated. Close enough to the lively hotspots of Bali and quiet enough to completely feel like you are in a hidden paradise within a paradise. Only a few short distance drive away from the Oberoi street where you could splurge at cute boutiques, window shopping or simply to enjoy delicious gelato to cool you off.
We arrived a little early than the standard check-in time of 2 PM, as soon as our car pulled into the driveway of the villa I was taken with how beautiful everything is. A fountain in the middle of the driveway added a touch of elegance upon first impressions.
An open Reception area across from two ponds awaits us with genuine Balinese warm welcome by the Front Desk staffs. After the standard check-in procedure process, they escorted us to the Restaurant aptly named The Mata Air. Translated to Indonesian, Mata air means water springs. They served us the best welcome drink we have ever tasted! My fiancé was so impressed by the drink that he asked the waiter what they’re made of.
We decided to have lunch at the restaurant while we waited for our villa. Lunch was delicious! More about this in the food section.
We stayed at their Garden Pool Villa. It is a 2 bedroom villa equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, two spacious bathrooms in both rooms, a private pool, a dining area and a living area facing the beautiful private pool. It is the perfect setting to enjoy with your family. Unfortunately, my son couldn’t join us for this trip so that spare room was not used but I know for sure that if he were to be there, he would probably never want to leave!
I am in love with their huge tub and their amenities. Knowing that they self-produced all their amenities added a rich personal touch to the whole experience.
The second room has two single beds and each room have their own flat screen TV also huge closets.
The pool is huge and perfect to lounge around soaking up the sun. You could do some laps in the pool too if keeping fit is your thing during a vacation.
The dining area and adjoining living room are designed to be an open-air space but worry not, they provide you with mosquito repellents that are all natural – a big plus in our book! – and they smell lovely.
The kitchen is equipped with a medium sized refrigerator stocked with soft drinks, local beers and they renew the stocks daily. We also love that they have a water dispenser in the dining area so you can make sure you are properly hydrated throughout the day. The kitchen also has a stove and enough cutleries and cooking utensil if you wish to cook your own meal during your stay.
We ate exclusively within Villa Air during our two days stay simply because we are too comfortable to leave the place.
Our burger at their Mata Air Restaurant was perfection! See it for yourself in this picture.
My fiancé ordered their Romantic Dinner for our first evening there. One of their bestsellers, the Romantic Dinner package is more than your average dinner. it’s a whole experience of romance served with delicious meals made to perfection! Villa Air staff went above and beyond to create a once in a lifetime experience by decorating the villa with real candles. The table setting was decorated with roses and more candles. The butler served us the meals and left to give us privacy after each course was served. There are 5 courses and all of them are amazingly rich in taste and served perfectly. This has to be the most romantic dinner I have ever had.
For our second evening, my fiancé chooses the BBQ dinner. This was also served with a high standard that sets up the bar high for our next travels. We had the chef personally came to our villa and cooked us the barbecue while having chit chats. Everything was perfect and most importantly delicious. My photos would fail to do them justice, the best way to prove this is for you to simply book your stay with Villa Air Bali. From seafood to steak…we were truly spoiled with the vast amount of choices for the BBQ menu. We still even had leftovers that we decided to keep in the fridge because there was plenty of food.
Our favorite part is the diverse Breakfast Menu that we get to choose from every day. They have Indonesian, Japanese, Healthy and Mexican Burrito. For the kids, they have specialized breakfast menu called Kucing, Kura-kura and Kuda. Just make your pick and they will deliver your breakfast at the times you requested. Very convenient!
We also get to choose our afternoon tea menu and they served it well in the villa daily. I absolutely love their cute presentation on the small shelf filled with delicious cookies and snacks both traditional Indonesian delicacies to macaroons. As a coffee lover, their Balinese coffee is another winning point for me.
Walking around the Villa Air feels like you are far away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak busy area. It is a really peaceful and we absolutely love how you could hear water everywhere you go. This alone feels like their surroundings are merging seamlessly with their name Villa Air. Air in Indonesia means water.
All their landscapes are beautifully managed. Tall trees, greeneries everywhere. Staying true to their idea of a serene hideaway that offers a retreat place for people to rejuvenate and relax. The water element truly adds a magical touch.
If you wish to explore Seminyak area, Villa Air could also arrange a drop off services to the heart of Seminyak and arrange pick-up too. Just make sure you book it first.
Everyone at Villa Air truly serves from their hearts and it is thoroughly shown by how genuinely warm and welcome everyone towards us and the other guests. From the waitress and waiter, the butlers, the chefs, the spa therapists to the Housekeeping crew, everyone is very friendly and made us feel truly welcome.
Emily who answered our questions and made sure we have a lovely time during our stay is surely one of the best employees Villa Air has. Thank you, Emily and everyone at Villa Air for your warm welcome.
