Villa Palma is a lovely villa, with good layout. All bedrooms are situated around the garden/pool area. Garden and pool area is really nice with large daybed and sun loungers. Pool has a semicircular area on each side, one which is a shallow area good for babies, the other good for older toddlers learning to swim. Staff were friendly and very nice. It was very handy that the villa also came with car/driver. The location of the villa was great, close to the beach and great kid friendly restaurants like Joglo and Milk & Madu. Also close to Finn's Beach Club and Finn's Recreation Club/Splash water park.
A thoughtfully laid out “open” villa with the two, air-conditioned bedroom wings embracing a large lawn and pool area, it really did seem like an oasis in paradise – if that isn’t too much of an oxymoron. In an open and relatively undeveloped area, it is fantastically quiet: just close enough to the beach to hear the waves and only 7 or 8 minutes walk, depending on the temperature (!) to the shops/bank/medics at Canggu. Era and her staff were great; attentive but not over-bearing and lovely cooking too. For us, very much a villa with the wow factor and one we’d definitely return to.
Colonial elegance in the perfect location. What is so special about Villa Palma is the rare space in what has to be one of the best locations In Bali. Let me explain, Villa Palma was built as a “colonial” style home. Not unique in the world but in a destination that has mushroomed from being a alternative lifestyle Island to a top resort location, quite rare. What you get at Villa Palma is space, not just 350sqm built up but a plot of 1500sqm. So if you enjoy a beautiful garden and tranquil setting, this is super. The majority of the villas on the island have been built to rent out. Villa Palma was built as a home, so unlike other villas we have stayed in on Bali, this was like a real home. Located in Canggu, arguably the best location in Bali, the villa enjoys close proximity to most of the top restaurants, but is removed enough for you not to be troubled by other tourists. Walking distance, circa 300 yards to a fabulous beach, to Canggu deli and Canggu club you could not be better placed. Large spacious bedrooms and bathrooms are what one notices first. For us having ample wardrobe space and drawers distinguished it from most other “rental” villas. Walk-in wardrobes in bedrooms 1 and 2! A 11m pool (55sqm) was perfect and good speed internet, again rare in Bali, was a huge plus. Open style lounge, kitchen and dining room are complimented by an air conditioned media room. If space and style separates Villa Palma from the rest then the team led by Era puts it on top of the pile. A full time villa manager who along with her team could not have done more to make our family feel at home. Transport, special meals, events organised (Xmas day and NYE) medical assistance – nothing is a problem. Fresh coconuts from the market, great fresh fish from the bay- no problem. Special thanks to Kadek and Gunawan. We will for many years remember our time in Bali, the palatial space and waking up to Frangipani covered lawns. We hope to return to Villa Palma one day.
