    Villa general:
    The staff were very welcoming from our first arriving and each time we returned from our days out, they were interested in where we had been, always had a smile and really nice and very accommodating for us in anything we wanted.
    The villa was off the main street of Petigent, which is a bustling suburb of Seminyak next to the beach. The villa was down a narrow lane that carried the noise of the town and at night the clubs and bars. Once inside the villa all the noise gone and even outside around the pool very quiet no town noise to speak of, brilliant.
    There was a very good informative guest book to read through about the area, food, restaurants, do’s and don’ts, health and wellbeing (massages)
    Have lots of massages, we would ask at reception if they could organise some for us and an hour or so later masseurs arrived at the villa. There was a whole list of things available in the guest book from nails, facials, massages at fixed prices and you pay the masseurs directly. NZ$20.00 for a 60minute full body massage and as soft or as brutal as you choose!!!

    Villa layout:
    The villa was big and spacious for all of us with an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. The fridge was well stocked with cold drinks and beer if we wanted at very cheap prices, about NZ$3.00 for a beer and NZ$1.00 for a coke/lemonade/soda water etc.
    Each of the bedrooms were large and spacious with good cupboard and drawer storage and desk area for work!!! Not for us. All with large en-suite shower, bath an toilet and both areas had good air conditioning (great at night).
    One thing to note was that the toilets had either a bidet and/or a toilet shower. There is a bin for toilet paper as the waste water system may block up if toilet paper is flushed away. Sounds pretty draconian, but after day one it’s quick easy, clean and normal and not a problem at all. The same applies to all toilets in Bali apparently.
    The pool area was awesome with lots of different seats, tables, benches and loungers. There were Frangipany trees flowering over the pool and small grassed area, so always plenty of shade. The pool was about 9 x 4 meters and about 1.2m deep and very clean, it got plenty of use from swimming before breakfast through the day when we home and into the evening with the pool lights on.
    There was also a small private massage room. That got a bit of use too….
    A real bonus was we could leave any washing in the bedroom’s laundry basket and it would be on the clothes horse drying in the sun the following day…awesome.

    Villa food and typical day:
    We would choose what time we wanted breakfast the following morning and fill out our selections on the sheet they would leave us. There was a good selection of typical Indonesian food, noodles and rice based and a selection of more western dishes, eggs and bacon or sausages, all with toast, a freshly squeezed fruit juice selection and fresh fruit. We would have breakfast at 7.30am. Very yummy and filling start to the day.

    The day starts with the staff at the villa at about 6.00am setting up the breakfast area and setting up the pool area with chair and lounger covers and fresh towels. The breakfast would be set up inside on the dining table and then at 7.30am the hot dishes we picked would arrive and the staff would make us coffees and teas and make sure we had everything and we were all good for the day.
    Once we had left for the day they would come back in change and make up the beds and clean up anything we hadn’t and generally spruce up the place and clear any leaves and flowers fallen into the pool.
    Once we had returned, changed and gone out for dinner the staff would come back in and set up the villa for the night, turn the air conditioning on, if it wasn’t already on, put on the lights; inside, outside and pool, pull the mosquito nets around the beds, store the pool area seat covers for the night and again clean any mess that was left that we hadn’t dealt with.

    Getting around:
    We asked at the reception to organise us drivers for some trips we went on, this they did and presumably used drivers they know as we had the same guy, Dewa a number of times. He was really good and we’d recommend this way of getting around. He would be there for the whole day waiting for us and cost us IRD 700,000, about NZ$77.00, so for the convenience and personal service pretty cheap.
    We had 3 days where we went places. To Kuta and the markets for day, a day at a waterpark (Waterbom in Kuta) and a day we split up Will and me played golf at the Bali National course. Expensive, but fabulous and worth every cent of it.
    Jenny and the others went on a tour to Ubud visiting temples, coffee, tea, rice plantations and jungle strolls….on their own spiritual journey.
    Noting the comments about the town below, the golf course was at Nusa Dua, a bit like Denerau in Fiji where you go from grimmey dirty looking places through a security checkpoint and then it’s all green tree lined roads with lots of hotels and resorts. Could be worth a look at in the future.
    We didn’t use the taxis, but they are pretty cheap and lots of them.

    General town:
    The town area is pretty grimmey and dirty, Seminyak was the same as were all the areas we visited, but we all felt safe in the environment and had no issues or concerns out during the day or walking around in the evening.
    It was a short walk to the beach, but didn’t care much for the beach, pretty dirty with rubbish and had a couple of streams flowing into the sea across it that were rubbish strewn and not a particularly nice shade of grey with one smelling quite like an open sewer. I’m glad we weren’t in a hotel overlooking the beach!!
    Plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants with a wide range of foods that were cheap compared with NZ. We had some really nice Indonesian food in the evening at some beautiful restaurants that I’d say would be pretty high end in NZ. I didn’t bother with the street food, didn’t look that appealing and was a bit worried about a dose of Bali belly.
    The town was a real mix of small market type have a haggle stalls to touristy souvenier shops to high end clothes and goods shops, all kind of next to each other which made it pretty cool looking around and lots of made to order / made to measure shops for clothes and particularly leather goods.
    We didn’t do the night clubs / night life thing, so can’t say too much about that.
    The traffic is different, no apparent road rules, but everyone seems to know what’s going on and amazingly no one gets annoyed with anyone and all the traffic just merges, mingles and gets to where its going. There are so may scooters and mopeds it’s unbelievable. You can rent a car or a scooter, our advice is don’t…..far too risky and that’s also the advice in the villa’s guest book. You get a good handle on the roads and driving on the way from the airport, quite a spectacle and wow factor….

    Money info:
    I couldn’t get my NZ$ changed to the Indonesian Rupiah IRD at a bank here in town. On the official Bali website it tells me that the exchange rate was NZ$1.00 = IRD 9,300. Auckland airport was NZ$ = IRD7,500. We changed $400. At Bali airport the exchange rate was NZ$ = IRD 8,700. I would recommend changing money in the Bali airport at the official bank exchange place. There are heaps of money changers on the streets, our villa reception said be very careful using them as they are pretty dodgy and use a bank exchange place when out and about.
    When leaving Bali in the airport at the bank exchange if you want to change IRD back to NZ$ you need a minimum NZ$100.00 (approx. IRD1,100,000) as they only have NZ$100 notes and so only change in NZ$100 multiples.

    Villa 3 is superb, spacious and clean. The service of the front desk, butler and driver are all very good. The supervisor in charge was very helpful also. Excellent service and hospitality of the villa staff.
    To our surprise we got a visit from one of the concierge staff of Ministry of Villa. We were extremely pleased with the hospitality of the staff. She even helped us to arrange for our dinner at Jimbaran Bay and also gave us some advice on where to eat etc. Excellent service and hospitality.
    Overall, we had a great time at Akara Villa 3 and will surely recommend this villa to our friends.

    We had an amazing stay at Akara Villa 3 , perfect for a family of 5 and even a few more could have joined us. The space and luxury of the rooms were amazing and then to top it off the seperate massage room next to the pool. The location was away from the hussle and bustle where you felt like you could truly unwind , also close walk to the main street to grab a bite to eat or visit the day spa’s close by. The walk to the beach only took about 5 minutes and even walked to Seminyak square markets which was about a 15 minute walk. The staff were amazing and would checkin to see when it was suitable to make the rooms or prepare at night time. Also having access to reception for any queries or late night food deliveries was a bonus. Thanks again and would love to come back again.

    We stayed at Akara Villas 3 for a week in January for my birthday. From the initial contact with Ministry of Villas, to the final farewell at the airport – and every little thing in between, our stay was simply perfect. When choosing the Villa, my emails were promptly and warmly responded to, and we found the perfect place for us. Seeing the photos and reading the description of the villa and inclusions was one thing, but actually being there was something else. Our expectations were far surpassed by the size and luxury of the villa and also the wonderful people who worked there. Everyone was so lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious, the pool was lovely. We arranged yoga and massages at the villa, which was really great. There is even a massage room! The location was perfect for walking everywhere, and the shuttle service was excellent when we wanted to be driven. It was such a perfect holiday, and wonderful way to spend my birthday. Thank you!
