A group of 5 of us stayed at the villa in May, 2017 and had a great experience! The villa is just like it looks in the pictures. The koi pond entrance provides for a fun and relaxing entry and the view from the pool is gorgeous (especially at dusk).
The location of the villa seemed to be south of most of our day trips. Bali isn't really "walkable" and the roads can get pretty congested. As a result, it can take quite a bit of time to get to your destination. That being said, the villa is in a pretty central location that allows you to go north or south easily.
Supada (the house manager) truly made our visit excellent. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and very willing to drive you to the best locations. He provided great tips and recommendations for our day trips and allowed us to have a truly memorable experience. The villa is great but Supada really made our trip the best experience!
I would highly recommend staying at Villa Leana if you want a beautiful, relaxing stay with great staff!
Villa Leana is incredible. The facilities are superb and the staff are brilliant. We had a fantastic stay here and didn't want to leave. The dinners cooked in house were to die for!! The only drawback for our group is the location. You just can't walk to anything and means we relied on being driven everywhere.
This is our 2nd stay in Villa Leana and nothing has changed since our visit 2 years ago.
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and a place with excellent view, Villa Leana is definitely what you wished for.
The villa staffs are forever accommodating to our request and their warmth and friendly smiles makes one feels at home. The villa manager Supada is always there should you need his assistance. Another highlight would be the breakfast spread provided which range from eggs, bacon, cereal, bread, milk, juices, hot beverages and fresh fruits which will spoilt you from choices. The in house chef kadek is also a fantastic cook and you will never be disappointed with the food served.
If there is one thing to picked on, I would say it's to install a hot/cold water dispenser as we have young kids traveling with us and that will ease the milk preparation.
We have tried other villas in Bali before and have yet to find one that can be on par with Villa Leana. We strongly recommend Villa Leana as your choice of stay in Bali.
Thank you Supada, Kadek and Dayu

We really enjoyed our stay here. Amazing pool and lovely staff. The villa was very clean and spacious.
Negatives not enough pool towels, not close to anything and the lounge and dining really needs some air conditioning
Unfortunately we were a little disappointed with this Villa .. However this could have been because we had just stayed at the most amazing private villa for our wedding and had downgraded a little.
Pool fence was great peace of mind as we were travelling with a one year old.
Amazing Sunsets with views out over Jimbaran bay ! Absolutely beautiful.
The Internet didn't work for a whole day we were there and they were unable to fix the issue .. It worked on and off the whole time. This was an issue for us as due to the ash cloud we were waiting for correspondence about our rescheduled flights.
There was a festival of some kind on the week we were there (which we weren't advised of prior to arriving) so they were skeleton staffed with people who didn't usually work there or only the husband. The lady who we thought would be there to assist with our kids to give us a break from time to time wasn't there the whole time as she was at this festival.
The nanny they recommended (the drivers wife) had never even been to Jimbaran before and she was unable to connect with the kids or speak any English so that made us feel a bit uneasy about going out for dinner (we had just gotten married a few days prior so we're looking forward to a night out to dinner with no kids).
The kids room isn't actually attached to the house it is underneath the house down very steep concrete steps accessed down the side and is next to the residence of the husband and wife who usually work and live there. I felt uncomfortable with the kids accessing the room without close supervision as I couldn't monitor if anyone I didn't know was accessing the kids room also.
I think our issue mostly revolved around bad timing and they tried their very best to meet our needs despite this :-) it was a lovely villa and we enjoyed our stay but for the reasons above I rate it a 3 out of 5.
