Nestled amidst rice fields and close to the local village temples The Santai is a unique hideaway in Bali. With just 11 pool villas the service is bespoke and personal and the 'family' of staff will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive.
This is what we call hospitality from the heart, developed and perfected by Lifestyle Retreats over the years and practiced at all of their other properties. By filling in a care sheet before you arrive with all of your preferences on it, nothing is left to chance - there's even a shopping list service so the team can buy and fill your fridge with all of your favourite food and drink.
Gong is The Santai's restaurant which is open from 7 am to 11 pm every day. Relaxed and informal there's no dress code it's also where you have breakfast which can be tailor-made for every guest. Gong has a menu of mouth-watering dishes from South East Asia using fresh and locally-sourced ingredients. There's a host of sharing platters too, ideal for friends and family and a cocktail and wine selection to choose from.
What we loved...
Sitting back from the road in a quiet neighbourhood close to rice fields and local temples this Chic Retreat offers guests something very different from the big hotels in Bali. Here, with your own private villa, complete with pool, kitchen and sitting room you really will feel at 'home' in Bali. The Santai is perfect if you want to dip in and out of Seminyak without staying in the town itself. I was seriously impressed with the luxury of space in the villas.
This new collection of 11 beautifully designed private villas are filled with little luxuries including a complimentary daily stock of soft drinks, handmade soaps, complimentary WiFi, home theatre system including iPod docking stations, 24-hour butler service, and a coffee machine. All of these extras will make you feel like you are staying in your very own villa.
The Santai is just a short 15-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and buzzing nightlife of Seminyak. Apart from chilling-out by your private pool, you may like to enjoy a massage in the privacy of your villa or sign up for a wellness package at sister property The Amala.
Yoga mats, bicycles, inflatable floats and kids toy boxes are all complimentary for guests at The Santai as are airport transfers. Guided tours, spa treatments and babysitting can all be organised for an additional fee.
Free parking is available.
