“Excellent villa” Shanti is close to Lovina area and just a 10/15 minute's drive. You need a car or scooter to come there, however Shanti offers a jeep service for short trips and for longer trips you can easily call in a taxi. Both are reasonable priced.
The villa is situated in a tranquil and rural area and is surrounded by rice fields and vineyards with a lot of privacy.
The villa is built with an Indonesia rice barn in mind, however very stylish and modern. The owners paid a lot of attention by developing this beautiful villa. Modern, with a very good taste for even the smallest details and a good feeling for symmetry.
The house is very luxurious appointed. Very tasteful. The kitchen is very well equipped and can easily compete with the most modern European kitchens. A very big swimming pool with beautiful terraces and trees to prevent from the sun if you wish. The big living on the first floor is fantastic to spend a pleasant evening and from this floor you are able to have a 360o view. In short: we very much enjoyed this villa, beautiful and well kept up.
We have to be careful not to over exaggerate, but the staff of the villa is of very great importance to the most wonderful vacation you can experience. What a great professionals with a lot of attention, friendliness and the ability to make guests feel at home. Without doubt the staff is very top. This applies for the two gardeners, the security and the driver, but especially the two golden girls of Shanti Ita and Ketoet. We wish that we could take them back home. What a wonderful art of Indonesian cooking. We stayed for three weeks and every day was a very pleasant experience, as well for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And the perceptible pleasure they have in making the quests feeling treated like king or queen. This staff is the most important asset of villa Shanti.
We did not regret our stay for a one single minute and hope to be back in near future.
“A "little" paradise on Bali” At the end of our trip in Bali we booked for a week at this amazing place. Agreements were made through the mail and we were picked up by the driver in Ubud. The trip was a foretaste of things to come, the driver is friendly and wants to tell everything. Arriving at the villa the spell was complete. A wonderful place (we started in the guest house) with a beautiful well-kept garden and via the bedroom, past the pool through the garden, straight into the sea.
After a few days we could move to the actual villa, a wonderful free upgrade. Entering through the "front door" I was speechless, by the design of the villa you have an impressive sight from the "front door" onto the garden and the sea beyond. The stay only became better.
The villa also has a permanent staff that cooks for you, cleans, etc. Great lovely people that want to do everything for you, and that can cook deliciously too. With the driver or taxi you can be quickly in Lovina to shop or eat out.
This is a place where you can relax, read, internet, swim and enjoy good food in a luxurious setting. It is on our list to go back to again very quickly.
