The villa is located in a residential area and can only be accessed by scooter or a long walk. Access is via laneways that are littered with dog faeces. Barking dogs greet you at your door and constantly remind you of their presence.
Roosters crow 24/7. A temple is located right next door and scooters will come and go at all hours of the day and night. The ground floor area is open to the elements, so mozzies and noise is prevalent. The tap water kept cutting out so we had to constantly ask the staff to fix/reset the pumps. The power went out one day and we had no way of contacting staff as the phone they supplied needed power!
The staff are friendly and are always hanging around the 2 villas so you feel as though you are house sharing.
If you are used to resort style accom. then you will NOT like this villa.
However, if none of the stuff above bothers you then you will enjoy this place as we did.
The rooms were clean and modern. The breakfast was ok but lacked variety. Sometimes it took a while to make but again it was fine.
This villa is more suited for couples but not families.The villa agents Eclectic Bali Villas are not accommodating to any requests for changes and are only interested in taking the money. I would not recommend using Eclectic Bail Villas.
We have been to Bali 6 times now, staying at different places within a similar budget and although Aroha is not bad by any means, I would suggest that there are many better places to spend your hard earned.
