I recently stayed for 5 days at Villa Sanctuary Canggu with 30 other guests, friends and family and celebrated my wedding with approx 100 guests the love of my life. It was the most unbelievable and special time of our lives. This truely is a magical sanctuary and created memories for our family that we will never forget. It was private, clean, and had all the tropical beauty of Ubud rainforest but only 10 mins from the funky Canggu restaurants, bars and shops. The staff at The Sanctuary were all extremely professional, caring, and excellent service from the moment we arrived to the time we finished our stay. Lead by Mr Salam the staff were very lovely and accommodated all request from cocktail parties, beautiful breakfasts cooked to order every morning, hosting pool BBQ and cock tail parties, organising our transport each day. We made really close connections with the staff and are considered part of our family now. I can not recommend this Villa highly enough for a wedding of family holiday. It is the most magical place to really relax in nature and celebrate life. 10 out of 10 from me!
We got married at the villa in March. The wedding party and family stayed at the villa for 5 days. The accomadation was unbaleivable. None of the photos do it justice. We didn’t want to leave. Salam and his staff made us feel at home. Was easy to find and get what and where we needed with his crew. They were very knowledgeable about the area. Salam knows all the good spots to visit.
Ellen the wedding planner did an amazing job. Everyone who attended our wedding said they have never seen anything like it!!
Thanks to all of them for a week we will never forget!!
Our 5 night stay at Villa the Sanctuary Bali for our wedding felt like it could only happen in a dream!
BOOKING- Frank was so helpful in arranging our booking well over a year in advance, sending us information, prices and pictures. He was so kind to answer every question so promptly. It was a quick and easy process.
THE VENUE- Photos do not do this place justice. When you wake up in the morning, you can hear roosters for neighbouring properties, the calm river running by and nature all around. All rooms are huge with modern furnishings, the garden and lawns are constantly attended to and the cleaning staff discretely ensured that all rooms where cleaned during the day. The pool area is a great hang out spot nearby the media room and pool table room.
STAFF- Putu and Salam, WOW.. to find staff like them is rare. They knew all of our guests names before we arrived ( we had a large group!), ensured our meals were organised promptly, organised our transport ( even when we forgot) and catered to our every request. All other staff were just as amazing, always greeting us by our names and a warm smile.
The meals prepared by the in house chef were delicious and we never ran short. I was a bit nervous about how much this was going to cost at the end of our stay but it turned out to be very reasonable!! All our guests were very impressed by the service and found this to be the highlight of the stay ( aside from the beautiful property!)
WEDDING PLANNER- If you are a bride considering having your wedding at this venue, you will not regret choosing Ellen as your wedding planner! Who thought you could plan a destination wedding through emails and be stress free????Ellen ensured that we had the best of every vendor within our budget and replied to every email quickly. She is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable! Our wedding day was a dream come true plus more, everything ran so smoothly with Ellen at the wheel. Thank you Ellen!
Thank you to Frank, Ellen, Putu, Salam and all other VTSB staff! ++++recommend!
I booked in Villa The Sanctuary Bali for my daughters wedding. The Villa was very clean and fresh. Very friendly and helpful staff, always willing to assist. This made our stay at the Villa a very pleasant one. We will always recommend Villa The Sanctuary for its excellent hospitality. A great wedding venue.
As a traveler, I pride myself in being in a lot of incredible places all over the world, but I must say this might top them all. To start, this place is absolutely stunning, there are no words how beautiful the grounds and the rooms are. The pool area in itself is worth staying here for. My bathroom was beyond anything I could've asked for, the tub was made of dreams! But perhaps the most important reason why this place won my heart is the amazing service I received from all the staff. Salem the manager made sure that all my needs were met down to having a kettle in my room late in the night. I was met with a friendly face no matter what time of the day and no request was too big. The cleaning staff kept my room impeccable down to having the blinds open/closed depending on the time of the day. The daily breakfast was soooo good, fresh fruits and banana pancakes was something I didn't want to leave! Having a personal driver is also a nice touch, was able to leave the grounds (really didn't want to lol) to have dinner in Canggu and they were more than happy to drive me around. You won't regret staying in this place, you would absolutely love it.
We stayed at the Villa for NYE 2017 as we do every NYE in a different country every year with friends. From the professionalism of Salam and Putu, to the helpfulness of Deka, Gday, Yebit and many other staff members everyone was very pleased with their stay. Salam helped us daily to create various excursions and the drivers unbeknownst to us all would work overtime without complaints as they put the guests first. I find that people working in the company reflect how they are treated in the company and clearly Frank, the owner, must be doing a great job. Thank you everyone there for a great send off to 2018!
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
