WHAT A BIRTHDAY .Family and friends gathered at the four bedroom villa at the memorable Hacienda Bali ,a small complex of only five villas connected by a private street, a really beautiful precinct.
Knew we were on the right track when we turned away from the hussel and bussel of Seminkak and headed down through the rice fields to our retreat .As a return visitor to Bali I wanted a base that we could relax in ,was quiet , private and close to the beach surfing being an interest but in easy access to Ubud and a few places of specific interest that we wanted to explore.World Heritage rice terraces ,Ullawattu and the Green School/bamboo factory.
Four separate private bed rooms beautifully detailed spaces surrounded by exposed bamboo rafters ,thatch and coloured rendered walls each with their own spacious bathrooms.Fantastic holiday ambiance.Private patio living ,secure private garden and large pool. Heavenly to wake up and start the day with a swim and enjoy again at night to cool off after a big day before heading to bed. Sons can attest to the quality of the internet .
Staff were very friendly,not in your face and helpful kept the place looking great. Took full advantage of the in house vehicle and driver, comfortably fitted all of us . Also the opportunity of our own private massage and yoga sessions were eagerly anticipated.Lovely breakfasts were enjoyed on the top deck overlooking the surrounding rice fields, village compounds and the surf at Perreranan Beach? Easy access to daily board hire to ,restaurants on the beach and walks. Birthday treat included the close by and truly amazing Tugu Hotel .The Cool Deus Ex Macina warehouse great night of music and wonderful food. Do your own cooking ,order an eat in, enjoy the many excellent local food outlets . Two weeks of busyness with a good balance of just outright relax and great fun..Do it, you won't regret it, you,ll come back a different person.

We are staying in a two bedroom villa at Hacienda with four adults and a 7 month old. So far our stay has been above our expectations. The villa itself is beautiful staff organised a portacot and high chair before our arrival. Pool is cleaned daily as is the Villa. Bottled water provided but if you do require anything from the shops staff are more than happy to take you to the local supermarket. Food is brilliant weather you want room service or make use of the restaurant and reasonably priced. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Hacienda and management have been fantastic. I will definitely be returning with all the family next time. Such a lovely peaceful and relaxing place. Staff come in the morning to clean Villa and at 6pm each night to spray the insects and prepare the beds. If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle then this is ideal. Close to Echo Beach and Seminyak. Highly recommended this small but has all you need complex. Not on top of any other villa plenty of privacy. Overlooks the rice fields each day you can here the locals scaring the birds with the tins (tin man we called him).
