What an exceptional treat to find The Longhouse. The view over Jimbaran is spectacular.
The rooms are everything you would want and expect from a first class hotel. But this is
where it really shines. The staff and the owner Linda make you feel so much at home anything you desire they will find and do for you. After a week in Bali we were so comfortable that we were calling Bali our second home. Don't forget to ask for the special
My family and I stayed at The Longhouse Bali last week and had a marvellous time at the villa. Owner Linda (so lovely and knowledgeable about what’s amazing in Bali) and her staff are incredible hosts and were very kind and particularly accommodating to my husband, myself (6 months pregnant) and my little 2.5 year old toddler.
We stayed in the beautiful Bali room on the third floor which had a lovely bathtub, and wonderful private pool facing the green hilltop views. The room comes connected to a living room area where the TV is and also where the staff so wonderfully set up toys. This made the early mornings a joy for our daughter! We loved the eco touches such as water pitchers filled anytime you like with filtered water instead of bottled water. So environmentally friendly! It was amazing waking up to the sound of birds chirping every morning.
The food at The Longhouse is of great quality and we particularly loved the Beef Rendang and amazing homemade desserts! What made the dining experience even better was the choice of where we’d like to have the meal -poolside, dining room etc.
The grounds at the villa are a joy to explore and savour. Where the 3rd floor hosts the pool and carries most of the panoramic view, The second floor is home to a green garden where you can read or lounge or in our case, play catch! I also booked a massage which was so enjoyable that I fell into a relaxed sleep. There is a small gym if you desire a simple workout.
We also booked the villa’s driver, Eko, who was very knowledgable and patient with our requests. Other notable staff include Hepy who was lovely and sweet to our daughter throughout the stay, and, Ruddy who went through great lengths to ensure my husband managed to watch his World Cup matches.
We will definitely be back to this perfect slice of Bai with our extended family soon. Thank you team The Longhouse for a fantastic holiday at the villa!
This was my third stay at the Longhouse and it is no wonder you just want to keep coming back for more of the Longhouse experience. Even though everyone in the group had seen the pictures and checked out the website, nothing had prepared them for the amazing house, the view, the atmosphere and the welcoming team at the villa. I have stayed at a few other villas over the years, and although many are beautiful, none can match the standard of the food prepared by chef Nurah. Order the Gado Gado for your first lunch and you will be off to a great start. As it was a special celebration for us, a true garden party with candles, centrepieces and flower petals was prepared for the group; all part of the service.
outstanding, offering a very warm, welcoming experience. The house itself was fantastic, with a beautiful view over the city, being both centrally located, but also secluded enough to offer a calm, peaceful stay. I would highly recommend the Longhouse as a holiday destination, and hope to stay there again in the future.
the place was just excellent, pretty much hidden from the crazy-busy vibe of typical southern Bali. Really enjoyed the stay there, and I believed my wife and kids also felt the same. Highlight recommended for those looking for a new solitude around Jimbaran.
Set on a hill with an amazing view from the pool, The Longhouse is a wonderful place to escape everyday life. We were lucky enough to book out the entire villa for a family celebration and enjoyed a wonderful few days. The service was outstanding! Very hard to leave...
We spent four nights at the Longhouse and had an absolutely amazing time. What makes this Bali villa stand out (besides all the space it offers) is the infinity pool with its incredible view! Just laying in the pool (or on top of one of the extremely comfortable floating cushions) watching the different weather fronts move across the island is an amazing experience. Because it is situated a bit higher the air is also very nice and not as stuffy as it can get in other places.
During our stay we ventured out to Seminyak for shopping and Jimabaran beach for play, always getting excellent service by the villa's private driver, making excursions very easy to plan. But besides that we just stayed at the house, really enjoying all it had to offer.
The staff is very friendly and attentive and makes sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The dining experience at the villa was excellent and allowed us to be very specific in what we wanted or to leave it all up to them to decide. Special requests was no problem and we were allowed to take part as much as we wanted, for example the kids made cookies which they truly enjoyed. Everything was fresh and they really adhered to our dietary requests.
Overall, the Longhouse made for an unforgettable Bali experience. Only a short 20 min drive from the airport makes it perfect also for a weekend stay as traffic can otherwise be a hassle in Bali eating up that valuable time rather spent by the pool.
We left the Longhouse with big smiles on our faces, and we certainly already miss that pool, that food, and that view...
Hi everyone! We have recently returned from a 5 night stay at The Longhouse Jimbaran. We booked The Longhouse for 5 couples and 2 children and we all had our own room/bathrooms etc.
All we could say was WOW WOW WOW when we arrived. We were picked up from the airport and various locations we were staying in Bali and taken to the property for 5 glorious days/evenings.
The place was so amazing we only left the property once. We spend our days lazing around the pool, playing games, reading books, chatting with the staff etc.
The staff, well what can I say. SUPERB! They spoke such great english and made our stay very enjoyable. We actually felt bad as we didn't have to lift a finger, including getting our drinks. As soon as we looked like we were getting up to go to the fridge we were soon looked after.
The photo's on the website do not capture what you actually see. The place is enormous but the the living area is such a great size for a group of about 10 - 12.
Something that is not talked about at length on the website, is we had a day chef and an evening chef. Staff cleaning, making up our beds daily and a Butler during the day and a Butler during the evening. Then of course security staff on site 24/7 and a driver if we needed to go out, which was only to go to the shop to replenish our drinks lol.
We met the owner Linda who actually lives next door. Such a lovely gently spoken lady who was so knowledgable about the area and gave us a few ideas of where to go next time we stay.
When you look at the lost per couple compared to what you receive and that is 100% attention 24/7, you only have to pay for your food. Take your own duty free and wine is pretty cheap from a local shop. The overall cost I think was pretty good compared to if we were eating and drinking out say in Seminyak.
HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend. Regards Kerrie :)
The Longhouse is absolutely stunning! Due to a flight delay, we arrived late at night and were surprised to see how many of the staff had waited to welcome us with a tasty snack and drink.
We stayed with 6 other friends and we found the villa too relaxing to leave. Everything was catered for; Masseurs from local parlors came to the villa which meant we didn’t need to travel. The chefs are fantastic and catered to our groups particular dietary constraints with ease. The seafood BBQ dinner in the garden we had requested on Saturday night was beautiful and definitely one of the highlights from our trip. The staff were very attentive and made our stay very comfortable. The rooms were a great and clean. We literally have no complaints, it was perfect.
All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing stay and each one of our friends is already talking about when we can go back again :-)
We have just returned from yet another fantastic 7 night stay at The Longhouse! Having stayed there many times before we feel privileged to now feel like part of the Longhouse family. As usual we were able to enjoy this amazing villa, with its fantastic views of the Island, in complete comfort, whilst at the same time being spoiled by the amazing staff. We can't praise everyone who works at the Longhouse enough - they always go out of their way to make sure you have everything you could need.
We would recommend the villa to anyone who wants to experience a holiday of pure relaxation.Thanks again everyone...we will see you all soon :)
In the 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
