Dear travel diary,
Our third stop was The Grove Villas, 10-15 minutes away from the beaches of Seminyak with taxi. First impression when they opened the doors to our villa was “wow!”. It was very private and very mordern and the beach house feeling of the villa was just my taste.
As I said, the first impression was just WOW! The villa consisted of one bed room, one bath room, one living room, a sun deck and a private pool with your own waterfall. The colors and the interior fit perfectly and the atmosphere was a mix between spa, beach house, modern and clean. This is the exact type of beach house I dream about buying for myself as a summer house!
Both the bed room and the living room had access to the pool through movable panorama windows. It was a really cool feeling to be able to wake up in the morning and go straight for a dip in the pool through the windows like that.
The bathroom had a glass roof over the tub… How cool is that? Over all, the bath room was just perfect. Lighting, freshness and colors. The bath room is such an important part for me and if I could have this bath room at home I would have died the happy death… Haha.
The closest beach is Seminyak which partly is known for it’s beautiful sunsets. It took about 10-15 minutes for us to get to the beach in perfect time to catch the sunset. During our stay here in Bali we’ve been fooled by a lot of taxi drivers. Even drivers from big companies like Blue Bird (which also is the best company we’ve been riding with so far) has made some shady moves on us. So if you’ve going to Bali, a tip is to just go by taxa meter and don’t listen to them if they ask for more when you reach your destination.
Over all my villa experience was very very good. I never felt like leaving the villa which led to us just hanging out on the sun deck, poolin, eating room service and listening to music. We did stuff like going to Mini Mart and bought some snack and watched a documentary. Really laid back stuff. I’d choose this villa again if I want to escape stress, wanna relax or even maybe focusing on work for a couple of days. The staff was also really cute and helped us with all of our requests :) So if this is your purpose of vacation, I personally recommend it!
Catch you guys next time, then we’re going to Kuta! Xx
