My wife and I had our wedding in The Cove Bali. It was fantastic memory for us. Sunset time for wedding at the cave would be the perfect. All of our guests love here and made lots of pics.
Events team are professional and friendly, helpful. We feel so happy to choose here as our life memory place. We will come back every five year to celebrate our wedding anniversery.
Thank you Rossella, Putu. We love everything. We hope we could stay longer.
See you next time.
We had the most amazing time at The Cove. Since we left, we have been recommending it to our friends and hope to go back ourselves one day again. There are so many things to rave about the home and the location -- it is beautiful, secluded away from everything, the amenities are fantastic, the perfect blend of comfort and nature, modern and primitive. It is basically your own private paradise. As much as we rave about the home and location, the best part about The Cove is the people. The owner Rossella is very responsive, friendly, and giving when it comes to travel advice and information. The staff at The Cove including Putu, Wayan and Mare became an extension of us as they treated us and took care of us just like family. The service and the food were beyond compare. The kids still talk about Chef Wayan's corn fritters! We planned to make The Cove our home base and travel out to different destinations in Bali each day of our trip, but after our first day there and falling in love with it, we canceled all our other plans and just made The Cove our home for the rest of the trip. We dream of our return to The Cove one day.
Our stay at The Cove was truly a dream! We travel to Bali frequently, but this was the first time we visited Balian and is easily our new favorite spot!
With its lush landscapes and virtually empty and clean beaches, Balian is a breath of fresh air amongst the usual crowded and more popular spots in Bali.
Upon arriving at the gorgeous and secluded property, we were greeted by the entire, smiling staff. From our gracious host Putu to the amazing cook Wayan, we immediately felt at home! The large villa is beautifully designed with an open air feel and tons of natural light entering through each room. The private beach, pool and views were incredible not to mention we were pleasantly surprised by the impressive home theater and media room with a surplus of movies and books to entertain adults and children alike!
The Cove and it’s friendly staff will always be like a second home to us and we look foreward to staying again!
Where do I begin? My time spent at The Cove was truly transformative. From the moment Putu picked me up, I was enveloped by his warmth and kindness. I was sick at the time, which is why I was a little apprehensive about the travel in the first place.
Although my sickness persisted during my time there, I was completely taken care of by Putu and the staff while I was there. They went above and beyond to ensure I was nourished and taken care of in every way.
I truly felt a great sense of healing during my four days there, and walked away a much lighter version of myself.
The energy of the space is indescribable. From the sound of the ocean crashing, to the swaying palms, and impeccably furnished rooms- it was heaven. The house itself is gorgeous and large, but still maintains a real cosy warmth to it.
Also, I'm vegan and gluten free, but the cook was able to whip me up delicious dishes daily. They also kept the fruit basket fully stacked for my time there, which was great!
I can't wait to go back in October. This place is truly special beyond words.
What a beautiful home. The architect (plus owner) design is stunning and works for this position so well. The property is 2 hours from the airport and 2 hours from Ubud and 2 hours from Lovina. It is located in an area that has very few restaurants and shops but that is not why you come to Tabanan. We wanted luxury with great amenities and that is what we got. The house manager is Putu and he is very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and flexible. Wayan is the chef and she is amazing. She catered for 7 of us (3 with coeliac) and every meal was entirely gluten free and the non-coeliacs went back for seconds and thirds. We enjoyed this property so much we didn't want to leave and only went to a local restaurant once for drinks. Breakfast is provided and it is excellent. Lunch is $10Aus p/p ($5 for kids) and Dinner is $15Aus p/p and $7.50 for kids. This is reasonable value compared to anything we saw in tourist restaurants in Bali. The fridge is stocked with Bintang at $2.50 each (the local restaurant we went to charged $3.50) We wanted Corona and some of the local Hatten Rose wine so Putu picked this up for us at the cost he found it in Tabanan. This was a great service. The driving service was great. Made is the main driver and the van is an 8 seater. He drove us to a local restaurant and waited while we had drinks by the beach (his service was complimentary). He is a very safe driver.
If I had to find a negative I would say that the upstairs master bedroom is so big and the ceilings are so high that it makes it difficult to keep cool with the current air conditioning unit --- this needs to be turned on early before retiring to bed.
The only other things are out of the control of management such as
1. The neighbour has started building next door. wasn't too disruptive. the noise from power tools was kept at a minimum an the sound of the crashing waves drowned out the other noise from the builders. The didn't start work until about 8am.
2. There are a lot of bugs and frogs around the property. The frogs are (what i would consider) loud at night if you are in the downstairs bedroom. If you are looking for a bug free sterile property, Bali probably isn't for you. The natural surrounds of this property are part of its appeal. Mosquitos were not too bad. We find more at home.
3. The beach isn't swimmer friendly as there are a lot of rocks and debris in the water. The water is warm but we spent minimal time in it. We stayed at the pool which is awesome. Staff pick up rubbish from the beach each morning as it washes to shore, perhaps this is less of a problem during dry season.
Overall, we loved The Cove and enjoyed our stay there. Sorry Putu, we forgot to mention that the kids kicked the volleyball into the bushes on the left side of the path down to the beach.....just below the gazebo. We will send you another one as it may not be retrievable!
