Where do we start? Some adjective descriptors - warm, welcoming, the kindest, beautiful, homely, stunning, exotic, beautiful, calming, serenity - there are so many words to describe this beautiful Own Villa.
Pietro, his parents and his working team opened their villa and hearts to us. My husband and I, stayed with our families, for a week to prepare for and then celebrate our wedding. No detail was an effort for them. They were so warm and accommodating. We arrived as two separate parties, one even very late in the middle of the night but they ensured we were picked up from the airport, and welcomed us with snacks and drinks.
The entire Own Villa team, is one of the kindest that we have encountered. They embody the themes and vibes of the Balinese people - kindness, respect, generosity, care and humility. We could see their excitement on our Wedding day, which truly added to our enjoyment and experience. We could not have been any happier with their attention to detail and help. They worked in harmony with our wedding planning team Happy Bali Wedding.
Finally a bit about the property in general, as you enter the villa, you enter a harmonious paradise. The greenery, open air plan, floor to ceiling windows in the living area, and Sumatran architecture adds fantastic atmosphere to your home. The infinity pool will make all your friends envious - it is huge, filled with beautiful blues and turquoises with reflections of green from the surrounding garden, it is so relaxing and probably our favourite spot. There are four separate huts/villas (each with their own ensuite outdoor bathroom - this is somewhat different, and takes time to get used to), and one large communal living area with beautiful furniture and a restroom. The rooms are all beautiful, lovely decor, plenty of storage space, TV in each area with a small eating area. The only small things to mention is that the areas are quite dimly lit (which does add to the atmosphere) but can be a bit tricky for those with sight difficulties. Also the air conditioning isn’t as powerful as what some may be used to in hotel complexes. However, both of these problems were managed promptly by the Own Villa team with extra fans and lights.
Overall, we whole heartedly recommend not only the Villa complex but the entire Own Villa team, they treated us like friends and family and we enjoyed every second of our stay. Together with Happy Bali Wedding, they provided us with a dream come true wedding and memories that we will always treasure, thank you and sorry for the late reviews!
We had a wonderful time in Bali while staying at Own Villa.
If you got your scooter it is the perfect spot, quieter, but still, just 10 minutes drive from Canggu and any restaurants, bars, and shops of Seminyak.
The staff will make sure everything is going perfectly and the food is divine.
We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Our stay with Own Villa was magical. Spacious, private and intricately beautiful villas. The food was divine and the people made us feel very looked after and welcome.
I would reccomend this place to everyone. It was lovely to come back to such a calm and serene bliss after exploring Bali each day.
The pool was also amazing for photos and relaxing next to.
Thank you Own Villas for a truely magical start to Bali. It's impossible to not have an incredible time here :)
Own Villas was a total relaxation paradise. The pool & Villa set up was fabulous.
Beautiful hosts and staff. The location was fantastic - both Canggu and Seminyak at your fingertips.
Can't recommend Own Villas enough!
Villa Own includes four Balinese style bungalows all with the same set up like standard hotel rooms, none of them have a king size bed for instance. The outside bathroom could be an issue in regards to privacy. None of the bungalows have a bath, so you have to shower. In our bungalow we had mice night and day... The two owner's dogs pooped each morning on the grass on the front of the bungalow. The cooking is average compared to other similar places in Bali.
If you do not set your expectations too high you should enjoy your stay, if you are looking for a more exclusive villa with high end services you may be disappointed.
We stayed at Own Villa from July 25 to August 6th, and when we came back home, we had this craving for the Thai Beef Salad we ate during our stay. :P It was soo good it is almost as an obsession !!! All the menu options we tried were divine ... Thanks to chef Made :)
Just a great villa for a stay in Bali . We LOVED our stay : the place, food, the pool and mostly the people!
Very cosy and intimate villa with outstanding service and food. They were very welcoming and helpful with anything we needed (booking day trips, excursions, spa treatments etc.) My family and I (7 in total) rented all 4 villas on site which gave us a very relaxing and intimate atmosphere. All the staff was lovely, always catering for our needs and quite accommodating in terms of food restrictions and preferences - only downside for food is that we had to order meals at least 10 hours in advance which does not leave much room for improvisation, although the cook was fabulous ! Be aware that Own Villa is not downtown and not located in a walkable area and that there is lots of traffic to go anywhere - although Seminyak Square (closest touristy spot) is quite a short distance away by taxi and the staff will gladly call one for you. We enjoyed our time there thoroughly and would recommend it to anyone.
