The Balinese touches within our villa and throughout the property really made us feel like we were in Bali. Everything from the attentive staff to the authentic dishes to the Balinese spa treatments coupled with the daily view of the Indian Ocean and it’s proximity to Uluwatu temple made it feel like a little piece of Heaven right there in Bali.
