We stayed 3 weeks in Villa Sound of the sea in August 2008, with our 3 children and 3 other families. Our objective was a perfect relaxing holiday after one year of hard working, with our young children but as well with time for doing things for ourselves. The least we can say is that this holiday was just perfect in all aspects. We are used to luxury 5 star resorts, both for business and private purpose, but there we found something far better and a lot more personal. Luxury is everywhere in this villa, but just the right way. Whatever you want to have, you just ask and you have it: luxury bedrooms, wonderful swimming pool over the sea, jacuzzi between the sea and the pool, wonderful open air living room where we loved to plug our Ipod while having a great coktail, prepared by a perfect team (Balinese kindness and top professionalism, just the perfect service) while our young children were taken care of by great Nanny found by the management, and the older ones were playing together in a perfectly secured place. 4 months after this stay, we are just looking forward to going back there, since it is by far the best holiday we ever had. Be it for a romantic trip, a family one, or with friends, you will not regret your Pantai Villa Sound the Sea stay !
I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere really special to celebrate our first year together.
There was an article in a magazine I saw which mentioned this new beach-front villa complex in Bali and spoke very highly of it.
We stayed at the Sound of the Sea villa, and it could not have a more descriptive name, the crashing of surf has always been something I've really liked.
There are five villas in the complex, four occupied, but you wouldn't know it. We were totally unaware of any other guests.
Our room faced the beach on an upper level, and it was just perfect to lie in bed and see the waves coming in.
The place says it is "super luxury" and I would go along with that, but it isn't the stuffy type of luxury which stops one enjoying oneself, laid-back luxury I guess you'd call it.
The food was excellent too. My girlfriend is Asian, and we were pleased that they offered real Asian food as well as western.
The staff really went out of the way to make us feel special and this leads to my only criticism: the place is relatively newly-opened and the staff are so anxious to please that they try perhaps a little too hard. (Take a tiny sip of water at dinner,and someone is right there to top up one's glass.)
But I know that after a few weeks, they'll take it more in their stride and relax a little.
So to sum up, an absolutely brilliant time, and I can thoroughly recommend the place to anyone.
I have just been to Pantai Lima (villa Sound of the Sea) with my family of five and my brother and his family of four. It was our best holidays ever. I had never been to a villa before, as I always thought a five star hotel was much more relaxing. How wrong I was. The amount of personal attention you get in a villa is unmatchable by a hotel. Everyday we were spoiled by the delicious food, the kindness of the staff, the personal trainer, everyone was working hard to make our stay unforgettable. Our children played in the garden and the children pool creating adventures that could last days, while we the adults could appreciate the sophisticated ambiance of the villa. The house is a mix of traditional architecture and modern furnishing. Its location right on the beach, gave us the feeling to step into a postcard everyday. I would highly recommend it to couples celebrating an anniversary or adults with children who still want very luxurious holidays. I also appreciated the fact that there are 4 common rooms on top of the five bedrooms making sure we got never bored.
Paradise! we stayed at the villa melissa at pantai lima and it was out of this world. The villa is right on the beach and the sunset views are just amazing. Everything is brand new and the best of the best, from the food and the service to all the facilities. The other great thing about it is the proximity to seminyak, which is the epitomy of Bali cool. Great restaurants and bars, very trendy and high class, much more so than Kuta. This trip really opened my eyes to what luxury living is all about. If you're not on the beach, then you're nowehere. I'm definitely doing another trip to Pantai Lima, and I'll try one of the other 4 houses next time.
One of the most enjoyable, relaxing and memorable trips! The Villa Sound of the Sea is located at a very nice, serene and relaxing place just by the sea in Bali. It is very clean, cozy and spacious with lot of greenery and has 5-star amenities and food. One can just walk down to the beach, hear the waves and sit on the sunny and white sandy beach and have a splendid time. Also enjoy the outdoors, jog, swim, surf, make a trip to the local villages or ride a bike through the town. Definitely recommend with friends and family for a perfect holiday by the Sea!
We have been twice to Villa Sound of the sea, in 2008 and 2010. We just loved it. It is the perfect balance between family holiday, relax, time for yourself (you easily find professional staff to take care of kids during your leisure time), great eating, surfing. We work hard all year long and it is just the perfect formula to take time for yourself, spend great time with your family and your friends, and enjoy an ultimate luxury and refinement experience. Discrete and efficient staff, astonishing ocean view, fantastic pool... Nothing is missing. We will go back as soon as we can ! We've been to many great spots and this is the best by far.
A beautiful property situated on the north of Seminyak, not to close, not to far. The best place I found in Bali to have holidays with family or with friends (and I have tried a lot). The property has 3 distinctive houses, two with bedrooms and the impressive living area. It is just perfect for holidays together without being together all the time. Gorgeous garden and an absolute beachfront to enjoy the waves of Bali. The staff is efficient and discreet, very friendly with kids, meal are delicious and they are doing exactly what you want without charging more than your market list. Decor is sumptuous. If you're looking for the best, this place is for you!
We went to Villa Sound of the Sea with two other couples. Despite the house being suitable for 5 couples, we realized that it would still be a cheaper and much fancier option than taking three small rooms in a hotel. We were all in dire need of relaxation and ready to be pampered. The setting of the house is amazing. You are so close to the beach, you could imagine being on a very luxurious boat. At the back of the house there were beautiful rice fields among which we were doing our daily jogging. The big garden by the beach was the place to follow our yoga class every evening, before going to the lounge bale for a daily massage. The food was also delicious. We asked the cook for healthy light food, and he very nicely obliged. Despite indulging in desert every night, no one seems to have gained weight☺ At night, the men were happy catching up on violent movies in the media room, while we were happily chatting in the huge living room watching the wave, and listening to the …Sound of the Sea.
We recently stayed in Sound of the Sea Villa for our Wedding and honeymoon with our friends and family and we all had an amazingly special stay here.
The rooms are really spacious and they had thought of every detail in every room.
But overall it was the staff that made this beautiful place into an amazing memory.
Highly recommend this Villa, its very peaceful and quiet place with own private beachfront and as this is only 5 villas complex with private entrance so it feels like you have the place to yourself.
We would definitely go back again.
Strict - no monies can be returned. In the event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavor to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
