This villa is exactly what we were looking for.
Coming from California, we had a long trip. We were two families traveling together and work hard.
We wanted a peaceful start to our vacation where we could stay put and not lift a finger.
THIS IS THE PLACE TO DO THAT!
From the very start (we were picked up from the airport by the staff) and taken to the villa. My husband had not had a Bintang Beer in over 30 years, so the drivers made a quick stop so we could get one! Immediate brownie points.
We arrived at the villa and were given delicious drinks in coconuts. What a treat!
We were greated by the staff and were made to feel at home right away.
We explored the grounds and the beach quickly because we couldn't wait to put our toes in the water.
The villa was so beautiful.
The infinity pool overlooking the beach and ocean was Beautiful. We spent a lot of time in the pool.
We would walk on the beach and would find so many shells, way too many to bring home with us.
The staff brought in massages and yoga for us. That was delightful.
The meals were fabulous from breakfast to dinner.
The chef can cook!
We asked for Lobster one night. I asked if they would be fresh, she smiled and pointed to the ground where they were moving! Yes, they were very fresh.
The day we did go out for snorkling, the staff had the car packed for us with towels and waters.
They made sure we didn't run out of Bintangs.
I must say we were so relaxed when it was time to leave the villa.
We had the best time.
The accomadations were 5 star.
It was a treat to fall asleep every night listening to the waves.
We will be back some day.
Thank you for your hospitality.

Stayed here for a week with my family (8 persons) in April and would definitely recommend!
Villa is privately located with an amazing view over the ocean. Putu the manager is very kind and helps you with every request you can think of. Chef Wayan cooks the best Balinese food, from breakfast to afternoon snacks (tempura mushrooms.. nomnomnom) to three course dinners.
The rest of the staff helps keep the house clean and tidy. We had some minor issues with the power supply to the pool house, but these were promptly resolved.
Only thing I could think of that was missing was an separate place for massages (= comfortable massage beds), so you don't have to lie on the pool beds (I know, very 1st world problemy.. ;)).
The Cove is my new happy place! It was like a dream. If I ever go back to Bali I will absolutely be here again! Thank you for such an incredible stay. The room, views, setting, staff, food - the whole trip was one delight after another. I’m so glad I got the chance to visit this little slice of heaven :)
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.
