Villa Review Round-Up

Lets face it, choosing which villa to stay in in Bali is hard. Once you’ve narrowed down where you’d like to stay, there are literally hundreds of places to sift through. Other than recommendations from trusted friends, Villa Reviews are the next best thing. So in those between season slow months, we’ve opened our doors to public figures from Europe, Singapore and Australia. They’ve given their views on what makes Chandra Luxury Villas Bali one of the top choices in Seminyak. In Their Opinion, these are some of the reasons they choose to stay at Chandra.

Merel van Poorten, a fashion blogger from Amsterdam advises on making an accomodation choice in Seminyak. “When you’re looking for the perfect place to stay, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the abundance of options. I think the most important thing to consider -other than location or price- is if you’re travelling with a larger group, as a couple, or by yourself.” Villas are clearly better suited to groups, couples and families.

Jana Firestone from Melbourne’s AphraMag compared staying at a 5 star hotel versus Chandra Villas and came out saying that the villa life left her “nut-brown and entirely stress-free”.

Pro-Skiier, Red Bull Ambassador and Entrepreneur Jon Olsson and his lady Janni Deler, Fashion Blogger and Brand Ambassador came out from Sweden on a surfing tour. They stayed a week at Chandra Villas with plenty of time to experience the relaxation and rejuvenation on offer.  After a yoga session with Hiro, Jon commented “The only thing I can say is that I can’t think of a better way to start the day, sure I felt that I was sucking kind of hard on a lot of the stuff, but it was fantastic to open up the joints and get a good stretch just as I got out of bed.”

Bali is a place full of spirit, where relaxation happens in both body and mind, so while in-villa yoga is one of the most rejuvenating ways to start your day, it’s less energy intensive to unwind with a massage. Equally fabulous to do in house; as Merel says “wonderful massage, again, in my own villa, set to relaxing music over the house speakers, which I loved because afterwards I didn’t have to travel anywhere anymore: I was already at home!”

When Sabrina Wang from Singapore and several of her best friends joined us, they swooned over the food. They devoted an entire double page photo spread in their magazine to dishes prepared by our Chef. “(My) guests were thrilled with the dishes served at Chandra Villas. If you prefer to cook your own, each villa is filled with all the utensils you’ll need”.

 

If you’re considering staying in a villa and never have before, just do it Travelling to Bali with groups of friends or family it just doesn’t make sense to choose a hotel. You can’t go wrong with choosing Chandra. See you soon.
