Recently spent 5 days & nights in Bali at the Silversand Villa with a group of friends, for a quick getaway from the daily grind.
From the moment we walked out into the arrivals hall at the airport until we were dropped off there again 5 days later everything was perfect.
We couldn't have asked for more, from the friendly knowledgable driver waiting to meet us on arrival at the airport, to the Villa staff who all greeted us with the biggest smiles, even the 24 hour security team. Every single staff member had a genuine enthusiasm to share their home with us which made everybody in the group feel totally at home and welcome from the moment we arrived.
Eva & Evi took care of our day to day needs like we were family, and cooked for us the most delicious mix of Local Balinese style local, and western food. The Villa staff helped coordinate the itinerary of activities we had planed for the week, and everything happened seamlessly. Eva & Evi even prepared and cooked the fresh local fish we caught during a days fishing excursion, into the most amazing fresh seafood Banquet.
The Villa itself is Nestled quitely amongst some beautiful rice paddies, and is surrounded by the most lush and beautiful tropical garden, which ensures the utmost privacy. The beautiful Kedungu Black Sand beach is only a couple of mins walk from the villa and is a great place to watch the sun go down over a few local surfers chasing the waves in. Or for the more adventurous you can get involved in the local friendly soccer match that seems to take place most evenings on the beach.
The Villa and all it's amenities are spotless and a 5 star standard throughout. The pool is the perfect place to relax the day away, and the serenity that the lush garden surrounding it creates makes it very difficult to drag yourself away from, when it is time to leave.
If you do fancy a meal out, which is doubtful as the standard of food offered by Eva & Evi is outstanding, there is a new restaurant opened at the end of the 200m driveway to the property, the Fat Hog which also has delicious food, and ranks highly on trip advisor already.
The location is unbeatable, as it is in a still undiscovered and beautiful area nestled amongst the rice paddies away from the hustle and bustle of the main Tourist Strip, and only a few mins walk to a beautiful beach visited mostly by locals, and rarely busy, except for on Sunday afternoon when they all set up Delicious Food Stalls. Should you desire a trip to the Shopping Strip or a bit of night life the Villa has a driver available 24 hours, or they are happy to arrange rental Motor Bikes for you, which are delivered to and picked up directly from the villa, so you can easily get back into the hustle and bustle shoud you desire.
I cannot recommend Silversand enough. I only wish we had more time to spend there.
