Alu Bali Villas Review

Article by bali luxury villa,bali villa,bali villas,bali private villa

The villas are beautiful, well laid out and spacious. All the fittings and furniture are quality items in the traditional Balinese style. The pool is large enough for a large family, let alone a couple on honeymoon (though it is unheated and therefore cold if you are used to being very spoilt!) Basically the Alu-Bali website is a 100% fair representation of what you can expect to get when you arrive here in terms of accommodation.

The morning breakfasts are great and you get a very good choice of western and local cuisine to choose from. It is very nice being able to book breakfast for a certain time then have the friendly staff prepare it for you whilst you laze on the sun-lounger or day bed.

The food that we have had in our villa for lunch and one evening banquet meal has also been very good and of a comparable standard to what you would get in a cafe or restaurant in lots of places in the UK or Australia.

There is a well stocked bar in the kitchen area with a variety of soft drinks and beers and a small selection of wines (no spirits so bring your own – you are allowed 1L per person at customs and they WILL stop you as they scan all bags…….. as I found out!) Prices are very reasonable with a can of Coke being the equivalent of about 80p and a beer being about £1.20. Good wine, as with everywhere on Bali, is quite expensive though not so horrendous as to put you off.

The villas are close enough to restaurants, bars and convenience shops to ensure that you don’t have to get a taxi everywhere though the hotel are more than obliging in ferrying you to anywhere that you would like to go on the island providing you book ahead for the use of their car. A number of comments on this site mention that you need to get a taxi to restaurants etc but I totally disagree.

There are 2 good restaurants very close to the entrance (Living Room and Hu’u which is also a pretty lively bar/club……..more to follow on this) and a further 5 or 6 on the beach which is no more than a 10 minute walk away for all except the very elderly. Put it this way, I have relatives in their 60s who the above walking time would apply to.

There is a convenience store about a 4 or 5 minute walk away which sells beers, cigarettes, snacks, water etc etc. Its open 24 hours and the prices are roughly 50% of the hotel prices i.e. worth the short walk if you are on a budget.
