We (family with baby and child aged 3) experienced a great variety of accomodations during our 2 month holiday in Bali and Java but Villa Nilaya stands head and shoulders above the rest.
We initally booked a stay for 4 days together with friends (another family with 2 small children) but as soon as we arrived we knew it would be hard to leave. In the end we stayed 2 weeks.
Everything is as described on the website and photos, but no photo can do justice to the stunning view over the sea whose gentle noises lull you to sleep at night. The staff were wonderful and we felt incredibly pampered without being overwhelmed. Everything was perfect – there even seemed to be fewer mosquitos than the rest of the island!
When we ventured outside our private paradise, we found the location to be a good base be it for a quick trip to a local warung, a day trip to the beautiful “White Sand” beach to relax and enjoy fresh fish, or to travel further afield up into the beautiful hills to the west of Candidasa and beyond.
East Bali was certainly our favourite part of the island thanks in part to the wonderful, beautiful and relaxing environment provided by Villa Nilaya.
