This is our second stay at Villa Pantai and it has not disappointed.
We love the region around Candidasa and being able to walk out the front of the villa to shops and restaurants is very handy and we love the village feel that Candidasa has managed to maintain,
Wayan and the staff here are just amazing, they really make you feel just so special, my hat off to them, such a credit to the owner Stuart.
We love how well maintained the villa is kept, lots of updates on furnishing since our last visit 2 years ago which shows how much the owners care for their villa.
Clean, very comfortable, we love the pool area and the view across the sea toward Lembongan very tires.
Once we are here we hate the thought of returning home, we like it that much.
We do recommend the wood fired pizzas from across the road, they will bring them over to you, yummy. But the meals cooked in the villa are really very good, we are happy most nights just to have a great dinner cooked for us here in the villa.
And now we can watch the football at the villa! As tragic Sydney Swans supporters it was great not to miss a game!
We really feel that Villa Pantai has become a second home for us in Bali and we will be returning again and again
We have stayed here on many occasions, and will continue to go back again and again. Its a little slice of heaven , when you walk in the view will take your breath away. The staff are very helpful and friendly yet never intrusive. Nothing is too much trouble. As for the beach as mentioned in one review, it is "cobbly" for want of a word, and the locals do go by to do fishing etc., but never once has there every been a problem with them , if anything , you get a huge smile and wave, what more could you want. Restaurants are within easy walking distance. Breakfast is great. There truly isn't much more a person could want. The owners are great to deal with, really not much more I can say , other than "what are you waiting for?"
Stunning views , huge villa ,amazing staff but there were some disappointments. When we first entered Villa Pantai the views and the size of the villa were breathtaking. The staff were humble, helpful and friendly, (thanks Wayan and all staff).The kitchen and the pool and spa could do with upgrading, the kitchen is a bit outdated with old appliances.The spa was not working when we were there.Our main disappointment is that the villa is advertised as private beachfront and shows photos of white sandy beaches, there is no beach just a black pebbled waterfront with lots of rubbish and local families fishing. The sandy beach shown on the advertising is a few klms up the coast , we had a vision of what to expect which was false so we found that disappointing.
This villa is absolutely stunning. Very comfortable and relaxing with amazing views. Especially at sunset! The staff and service was exceptional and the breakfast was the best I have had in Bali! The owners, Stuart and Pam, are amazing people! Candidasa has remained authentic and the area is reflects that.
Where do I begin? With the best part of this place, which is the owners...Stuart and Pam! They were extraordinary people, who were unbelievably welcoming. The villa itself is very relaxing, with attentive staff and an amazing view of the ocean. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an escape in Candidasa!
