I was lucky to spend 3 days / 2 nights at The Santai, A 5* retreat located in a quiet area in Bali, offering individual villas to enjoy peaceful and an authentic experience away from the big hotels and resorts.
You may know that I love above all to have a quiet place where I can be relaxed after work, The Santai has risen above my expectations.
The service from Check-In to Check-Out were excellent. The staff is truly attentive and always smiling, they makes you feel good right away. I had a thoughtful treatment. The small number of villas give to each guest a personalized welcome and service. I thoroughly enjoyed the family spirit and hospitality at this amazing place.
I chose the two bedrooms villa accomodation, perfect for 4 people. I enjoyed a private pool with plenty of space and green plants, I loved a lot the exotic side of the villa.
The villa is spacious in a lounge style … Everything I like. A full equiped kitchen is available in case you would like to cook something, this is very convenient. You will find also a water dispenser and coffee machine (My drug) at disposal.
However, if you prefer enjoying some wonderful Balinese cooking, a very nice restaurant The Gong, is located in the retreat.
The bedroom is large, the bed was very nice with a good mattress.
One of the pieces that I liked the most is the bathroom… (Not a surprise for a women 🙂 ) Bathroom is located semi-outside and nicely arranged, two incredible showers are available and a bath.
During my stay, I also enjoyed a Cooking class. You know that I love food and I was curious to learn how to make some balinese cooking.
It was a fantastic 2H experience. The Balinese cuisine is impressive and absolutely succulent (because yes at the end of this class, you will taste the succulent cooked menu). I guarantee you, It’s really worth 🙂
My experience at The Santai was excellent, I will keep this address preciously and will come back here next time I’m in Bali for sure:)
I don’t tell you anymore, just take a look to these amazing pictures!
