“Life is Better at the Cove!”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018
person found this review helpful

I’m ready to move here. My family and I have only been here a few days but even that little time has been transformative. Stretched out on the chaise lounge beside the infinity pool overlooking the beach, listening to the majesty of the crashing waves, I am convinced I need to change my ways and find a new forever life in Bali. At the Cove, specifically.

The Cove has that perfect relaxed elegance that I think we all apire to. It’s luxurious and modern but still feels like home. It’s your posh, second home. Here, you can stretch out and sink in . . .

But you don’t have to sink to the level of cleaning or cooking. Heaven forbid!

The practical side of life - and all of its special requests - are taken care of by Putu, the manager and his staff. The seemingly invisible housekeepers keep everything impeccably neat while Chef Wayan in the kitchen makes her gourmet meals look effortless. And mine is a difficult family to cook for. We’re all organic, gluten free and casein-free. Although she’d never attempted this before, Wayan was able to make the most extraordinary gluten free, processed sugar-free lemon pie for my husband’s birthday. It was sublime!

Truly, you’ll never want to leave. Meditation on the beach, yoga on the lawn, leisurely lunches by the pool, and elegant dinners watching the sunset. Life is better here.

Staying at The Cove and having our wedding there was perfection. Couldn't have been better if we tried. The staff are all amazing and the scenery is magical. I can definitely recommend it for your special occasion.

“Exquisite in every way”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This villa is very special, it has a unique sense of rustic luxury. If your a nature lover who likes thier creature comfort this is the place for you. It's literally a little slice of heaven. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to experience the beauty of real Bali. Our family were so relaxed and happy here, the chef Wayan is amazing, literally 5 star family style eating at every meal. Thank you Rosella and the cove team!

“Amazing home away from home with all the extras”
Reviewed 22 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My wife and me found this place after looking through many many different villas for our family wedding. We were 11 people and this villa was just perfect. One room for the girls, another for the guys, our master bedroom with amazing views (they all had nice balconies) and more just suited everyone. Before the visit Rosella was so helpful providing quick and informative answers to any of our questions making us feel very secure and welcoming. From the point of pickup in Kuta by Putu we knew this would be amazing. We stopped by tanah lot and had lunch before arriving just at sunset at the cove where everyone was left gobsmacked by the awesomeness of the place. Wayan prepared great food together with the other staff and everyone felt satisfied every evening of the stay. We can't wait to see the wedding pictures from the beach and hope to come back sometime in the future. Any small issues that arose were promptly solved by Putu (e.g. running out of a certain kind of beer/snacks/drinks and more) or Wayan as well as all the organising for the departure day.
There is so much more I could write but I think I have already expressed our feeling that everyone was overwhelmed by the experience.
Thank you all.
P.S The pool is amazing, deep and fresh :D

“Best Anniversary Celebration Ever!”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Cove was exactly what we had hoped to find in Bali, and lived up to our high expectations. The location is absolutely perfect, far away from the the touristy places where you can experience your own secluded paradise.The home had the luxuries of a private infinity pool overlooking the private beach, an awesome huge movie projector with a huge movie selection, multiple lounge areas, and many other features to ensure a comfortable stay. In addition, from the villa there is plenty to do nearby, such as visiting a waterfall, or the uncrowded and magnificent rice terraces. There are also a few small bars and restaurants nearby, some temples, spiritual healer, bat cave, and other beaches all close by. We found the perfect balance of exploring the area, and relaxing at the villa. We spent the mornings venturing out, then enjoyed the pool overlooking the beach, explored the beach, had massages daily at the house in the afternoon. The massages were a real treat and some of the best we had the entire trip.

We ate at the villa for most all of our meals, because the chef is amazing and the food was exceptional. Breakfast, lunch, and the special dinners were all wonderful, plentiful, and reasonably priced. The views from the villa are far better then most restaurants, so there is not reason to leave, but don't worry you will not feel isolated. I recall being a little concerned about getting bored or feeling isolated while here, since it is in a more rural area, trust me, that will not be the case.

Furthermore, The Cove assisted my husband in creating an unparalleled anniversary celebration. For our anniversary, an entire local band, dancers, and performers, nearly 20 people came to perform for us. It was unreal, and very special. The music, the dancers, performing during sunset with the ocean view behind them, was super. The night was so incredible and special. Literally, we had an entire show, followed by a four course lobster dinner, for our small group of 4. We were spoiled with flowers, that my husband had arranged, yet they ensured were outstanding. Following the perfect meal, in a beautiful setting, the chef treated us to a homemade rum cake, it was just perfect! Both my husband and I, as well as the other couple who traveled with us, loved the evening so much, we actually booked the celebration for a second night. The next night they prepared a huge fresh fish, in place of the lobster, and we had another awesome meal.

The owner was outstanding to work with prior to arrival, and orchestrated all of our special request perfectly, and went far and above the standard of service. She provided ideas to make our anniversary celebrations special and gave ideas of things to do in the area. The staff was also great to work with while there helping to drive us wherever and arrange excursions. The manager, the chef, the driver, and the others who assisted for special events were just wonderful and made the stay very special, one that we will never forget.

The villa, the staff, the location, the amazing infinity pool, the beach are all amazing! I would, and hopefully will, come back n a heartbeat. In fact, we already are sending friends in January.

I would recommend this property very highly, especially for a special occasion, as Rosella and the on-site amazing staff will literally bring your dreams to fruition. Our group of four loved The Cove. Do not be discouraged if you are a smaller group, as it was awesome having all the space and service for a smaller group. On the other hand, if you have a large group, there is ample space.Thanks again to the entire Cove family, see you next time. Happy travels!
