We holidayed at the amazing Villa Menari as an extended family group of 11 aged from 12yrs - 74yrs in early July 2016. The booking process through Michael was very efficient with emails and questions responded to promptly. Payment was easy and receipts sent.
Putu and Nyoman met us at the airport and from the time we arrived at Villa Menari we knew we had booked a piece of paradise in Bali.The grounds are extensive and the pool huge compared to other villas we have stayed in. All the rooms are fabulous (no need to squabble over who gets the best room) with comfy beds, bathrooms, air con, TVs (not that we used them) and fans. Looks even better than photos on the web!
We hit the pool on arrival, had amazing massages and were treated to the Bali dinner before finally retiring to our rooms all on day 1. Putu and Nyoman drove us wherever we wanted to go (very patient with our lack of decisiveness at times and experienced navigation of the Bali traffic - which seems to have got worse).
The breakfast and meals we had in the villa were all fabulous and the recommendations for eating out were all exceptional.We can highly recommend the Japanese just around the corner, Warung Dua, Warun Desawi (?) and a couple of other places near paddy fields and in Ubud that were all great. We did treat ourselves to Ku De Ta in Seminyak one night to celebrate a few birthdays which was a great family experience (sunset cocktails a treat).
The villa grounds and all staff were exceptional. We used all bedrooms (including the TV room annex).
This is not the place if you want to be in the middle of the action. You can't just walk outside to cafes and bars - but with access to 2 drivers and cars it is not too long (depending on the Bali traffic) before you are among the action if that is what you want. It is very relaxing to return to the peace and quiet of Villa Menari at the end of the day. We only regret not having more lazy days just hanging out at the villa.
We hope Putu and Nyoman are enjoying playing "Spot the Polo!" on their drives now!
We loved our stay here and will be recommending to all our friends.
