I had an excellent stay in February this year at Villa Mary.
I cannot imagine a better place to stay when you go to Bali: it is so beautiful & peaceful you wish to stay forever.
This independent villa have a very large garden and some amazing vues on the sea, the beach & the rice fields.
The staff is professional & friendly. All of them are trying their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They are always happy to help and improve the quality of your stay.
The food is so fresh, locally sourced, the cooks have some very good skill to create the best of European & Asian food you can choose from!
We shared the villa with 3 others families and everyone had his private space for a very enjoyable holiday.
I rested a lot and I am considering coming back with my three children and some friends next year.
We just got married (April 27th 2013) in Villa Melissa, and stayed in Villa Waringun, Villa Melissa and Villa Mary with around 30 friends over the wedding period. The location is simply stunning, and the villas are beautifully designed to compliment the location. This was a perfect venue for a gathering of friends and family, and great for kids. The staff were fantastic - every whim is catered for, the food was excellent (huge BBQs and Babi gulung) and nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks to Astawa, who we dealt with during the wedding organising, and who oversaw the villa estate, and also to the villa teams who looked after our friends. Special thanks also to Ellie in Villa Mary (where we stayed), who was there to answer any questions that cropped up.
We have stayed in all manner of accommodation in Bali over the last decade or so, but these villas are in a class of their own - we simply did not want to leave! We cannot recommend this place highly enough, and will be back as soon as possible!
We stayed in “Villa Mary” for 5 days in a group of friends and family with 7 adults and 3 children (aged 2 to 5 years old) and had an amazing break from Singapore… a gem of a Peaceful Haven!
Only about 30 minute drive from Seminyak, but can still feel the real Bali atmosphere…
We were welcomed by the driver at the airport and after a bit less than an hour’s drive, we arrived at the Villa, where the staff greeted us with some delicious non-alcoholic mojito like refreshments.
After a very good night sleep, we went to have our breakfast and were just amazed by the beauty of the surroundings and nature. On one side you can see the Ocean, on the other side you see the lush green rice fields… And in between beautiful landscaped gardens, Frangipani scents, a stunning lap pool, lounging chairs, beautiful architecture made of a perfect blend of Balinese and contemporary style. The décor has been carefully thought through selecting and using for the most local craftsmanship and products without compromising on luxury and comfort.
One evening we had a Seafood BBQ! The Chef had carefully selected some fresh fish, crab and prawns at a nearby local market. All was cooked to perfection and accompanied by one of their specialty “Sambal Matah”, a typical Balinese raw/spicy salad mixture. A real feast festival! Make sure to ask for one of those! Not to be missed.
If you fancy like me watching surfers catching waves, you are spot on. Just walk a few metres down left on the beach and it is a real pro surfers spot! If you don’t meet surfers, you might bump into horse riders!
On another day we decided to go on a mountain bike ride with Regis from Archipelago-adventure, this is not for the fainthearted but just another highlight of our trip. I highly recommend it if you fancy a bit of exercise. This will plunge you amidst the lush green rice fields, mountains and authentic Balinese villages.
Also this would not have been possible without the super nanny Yaya who looked after our two year old boy. She is just amazing and totally reliable! And I am not saying this easily because it is amongst the most difficult thing to do to leave your most precious one with someone you hardly know…
We went out one evening to Sarong restaurant, and on another one watched a movie in their in villa cinema, which are both not to be missed experiences!
The Staff was always friendly, discreet, professional and always willing to assist you with a smile.
The space is ginormous, so you can have a lot of people and kids have a lot of space to play. There is also a wading pool for them next to the lap pool.
All service are included and always available (food, drinks, car, and first class massage at super good price). Alltogether for a big party it is not only incredibly luxurious and fun but surprisingly good value for money.
Definitely will come back and have no hesitation in recommending villa Mary to anyone.
We stayed at the Pantai Lima villas in September 2013 where there are five villas for rental in the same location. Our wedding party took up four of the villas - Villa Melissa, Villa Waringin, Villa Sound of the Sea and Villa Mary - my family stayed in Villa Mary.
What an amazing experience! Thanks to Wayan and the crew at Villa Mary, who took such special care of us and treated us like family. The scenery was beautiful and each of the rooms in the villa were glorious! They all had something different to offer and each were special in their own way. Our room (the lower Garden Room even had an outside shower overlooking the rice fields - wow!).
The wedding itself was held in Villa Melissa - stunning location with the sea as the backdrop to such a celebrated occasion.
The day-after party was held at Villa Sound of the Sea - just superb!
Thanks again to Wayan and everyone at Villa Mary for making our stay so special.
The amazing villa had many luxurious rooms for our large group. The staff were amazing they were great with children, very helpful drove us were everywhere. The chef made what ever you if you informed him earlier. There was a large cinema in the villa that could fit up to eighty people in if needed there was a large selection of movies if you wanted to sit around and watch movies all day . No matter what sort of holiday you are looking for Pantai Lima can give you that perfect holiday.
My husband and my 6 months old daughter have been to Bali for the first time and have chosen to stay at Villa Mary with some friends.
This villa was perfect, peaceful, luxurious, great view in front of the beach and the rice fields.
It is very well located and the driver is always available if we want to go somewhere. The staff is amazing especially the butler and the cook staff.
We had the feeling to be at home: much better than a hotel but with all the services that you find in a 5 stars hotel.
The rooms are very comfortable and each one is different (some of them have an outdoor shower).
There is also a gym room, a tennis and the best infinity pool (even a kids pool).
We will definitely come back next year!
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
