Key selling points: This expansive two-bedroom villa features a Balinese village concept with a “Village Chief” who caters to the requests of guests. Set on a steep slope, the villa provides direct beach access and three pools, and offers stunning cliff views and uninterrupted ocean panoramas.
Standout service: A couple coming to stay at the resort lost their luggage on the way to Bali and had to wait two days before their bags were found and delivered. In the meantime, staff presented them with bathing suits, T-shirts, sarongs, and other items from the resort’s gift store to tide them over.
