My review is a little late, but no matter I know it will still have the same service that I received.
Stepping out to the airport the heat just hits you, and its a little overwhelming in no second we found our driver jumped into the car and had cold water and fresh towel waiting for us. exactly what you need after getting off the flight and I think the best way to begin a vacation - we needed up having the same driver for the whole 10 days,helpful,considerate, safe and really funny.
arriving at the villa we were greeted by the team lead by Ika, who are all very friendly and helpful, with the connection to Spring Spa in Seminyak we quickly booked in services (which is a must) also very helpful sorting ferries and transportation to other parts of the island as well as Gili T
overall villa was incredible, the rooms, bathroom living areas exceeded my expectation.
there is even a bose speaker sound system built in around the pool (this became very entertaining with the few friends we made a long the way)
location is a no more the 15mins car ride to Seminyak, really close to echo beach definitley go to old mans at sunset have a beer, fish and chips and watch the surfers. good vibes loads of young families and friends hanging out together we walked down the first night from the villa not far at all.
I can't suggest anywhere else to stay. We loved out experience here and cannot wait return.

We stayed at the Villa for 4 nights, we are a family group of 6 adults and a 1 year old. Natalie the Villa Manager was excellent answering all our questions organising transport, meals etc. The Villa consists of 3 separate bedrooms and one Pavilion which has a small kitchen dining table and lounge with TV. In my opinion the Villa is more suited to a group of friends rather than a family travelling together. The Villa was extremely reasonable priced and I guess with that comes some negatives.
Rooms - were spacious, and had large bathrooms however air conditioning units were a little small to cool the space sufficiently, this seems to be a common occurrence in Asia. Bedrooms were cleaned nicely each day, although floors were not moped which I believe is necessary.
Staff - were friendly enough, but we always had to go looking for someone if we needed something . I know some customers like the staff to not be around, but it would be good if they were trained to come and ask the guests if they would like a drink etc. We added a Chef into our booking for the entire stay, however the Chef was located at the sister Villa so it didn't quite work as we had anticipated. We had two meals at the Villa which were both quite nice.
Location - we walked to and from the beach everyday, we also hired scooters, there was a bit of local traffic quite early in the morning and as the Villa is located on Jalan Batu Bolong can be a little noisy but not too bad.
Grounds - very spacious with large lawn area, design is minimalistic, the entry needs work as pond just has algae water with no plants etc and you walk over this as you enter the villa, would look so much nicer if cleaned out and redone. Pool also needs to be cleaned more regularly.
We did give Nathalie feed back on the things we thought could do with improving, and our views were taken seriously. All in all a good value for money Villa in Canggu area.
