Sanur was lovely after spending time in Seminyak first. Villa Bella is located in an alley a short walk to the Hardy Supermarket (great for all supplies needed plus clothing and souvenirs). The beach was not as easy to find but when found had a lovely paved walkway with cafes and bars.
Villa Bella is amazing - clean, super tidy and very well maintained. The pool was refreshing and spotlessly clean. The kitchen had all the required bits and bobs including filtered hot and cold water.
Breakfast was delicious - just needed to pre-order the night before with a requested mealtime. Kadek was friendly always smiling and seemed to enjoy preparing the meals. We had a lovely dinner on our last night which I would highly recommend.
Overall Villa Bella is amazing - step from an ordinary asian lane into an immaculate 5 star homestay. Stay and enjoy the sounds of the country and caring atmosphere from the hosts
We stayed here in August and were not dissapointed. All of us - 4 adults and 2 kids (7 and 8) had an absolute ball! The villa was a great place to hang out in, plenty of space for everyone, gorgeous pool and gardens and all the bedrooms came equipped with comfy beds and air con. This place (guests included!) is well looked after by the lovely Gede and Kadek who are truly beautiful people. All services provided by the caretakers were second to none! We did experience the barking dogs in the night and roosters in the morning (like other reviewers) but I still give it 5 stars because I would rather listen to the odd barking dog and rooster than nightclubs and party goers. No biggie, bring earplugs. We found Sanur very quiet compared to the Kuta-Seminyak area with amazing restaurants and a pretty beach out the front. We also found it a great jump off spot for sight seeing because it has less traffic in and out. Whether we stayed all day in the villa or set out on an adventure for the day, the villa was always a sanctuary come back to and be in. We had a very relaxing holiday and can't wait to return!
We had a wonderful time at Villa Bella.
Gadey and Kadek are the perfect hosts and their intentions are true.
Anything we asked was not too much trouble for them.
Gadey would make himself available anytime.
We had Gadey driving us around, when we moved to the second villa we still used him as a driver.
Kadeks cooking is unbelievable.
They are really lovely people and I will surely be staying at your villa again if they are our hosts.
By the way the villa is beautiful.
The previous posts about this villa capture just about everything you need to know about this place, including the dogs and roosters, but that's all part of the suburbia experience in Bali. Gede and Kadek are great and nothing is too much trouble. Plenty of amenities close by and the $6 fully body massages on the main strip of Sanur are choice. Spoil yourselves and book a stay, you won't be disappointed.
My wife and I stayed at Villa Bella in May 2015 with both sets of parents to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and were most glad we made the decision. The villa is lovely and the staff are wonderfully warm people. Gede and Kadek took great care of our requirements, including replenishing the quickly consumed Bintang cartons. We had a variety of simple and tasty breakfasts cooked every morning by Kadek and Made. They went to such effort to decorate the villa in traditional Balinese style for our special night, we couldn't be more pleased; it was beautiful. A night to remember!
Hans was friendly and easy to deal with via email. The villa is well priced in comparison to what else is on offer in Sanur. The only downfall for me was the barking dogs and confused rooster crowing at strange hours. Would definitely recommend staying here though.
