Words cannot describe the "peaceful easy feeling" this beachfront property offers. If you are a lover of nature, this is the place for you. When you wake in the morning and look out towards the sea, it feels as if you are floating on the water, the house is so close to the sea. The gardens surrounding the pool and jacuzzi area are spectacular with hundreds of different flowers in bloom all year round.
The staff who attend to the villa are wonderful local Balinese who will share their life with you and provide any service you require from home cooked meals daily, tours directly from the house, daily massages, shopping trips.. whatever you desire. Or, they can leave you in total privacy if that is preferred. The house has spectacular artwork, high speed wireless internet, cable TV, an extensive DVD library and exercise equipment. If you want to revive and regenerate this is the place for you!
Everything about this stay was excellent. The description is accurate and the correspondence during the booking phase was always efficient. While we can say that the garden and pool are just as beautiful as they look online, photos could not ever do justice to the stunning interiors of this villa. We've traveled extensively, obsessively all over the world and stayed in many, many rental villas and this one is right at the top of the list for beauty, tranquility and amenities. During our stay, Kadek and Goesti cheerfully took care of our every need, shopping, cooking, and cleaning. Had we wanted total privacy they would have been invisible but since we stayed a month, we wanted to interact with them and they were happy to take us here and there on the back of their bikes, introduce us to their friends and family, show us secret places they know, and more. The only thing that was not perfect was the Internet, which was slow. It and the power did go out occasionally, that is normal here, but Kadek was on the phone getting them fixed immediately every single time. If you are going to Bali to sightsee all day long this is probably not the place for you because it's on the "quiet" side of the island. But if you want to relax and live a tropical dream come true, this is it!
Villa Kupu Kupu delivered exactly what I asked for, a very remote, very quiet, and beautiful beachfront home. The facility is imaculate and well kept. We both sincerely appreciated the driver, gardner, and cook, as they became fast friends and our access to move about. If you want or need anything, those three can either have it delivered for you or get you there.
I would highly recommend this Villa and will definately stay there again. I will however, state, that it is very remote, so unless you have a car, scooter, or are willing to ride on the bike of one, this might not be for you. But if you love serenity and a relaxing week, this is it!
The staff at Villa Kupu Kupu did a fabulous job organizing our snorkel trips, boat trip to Lovina, and trips to the very exciting markets. We will be forever grateful to them.
