We (2 friends) have had a great time at Holiway Garden Resort in Sept 2019. The place is really beautiful and right at the sea. Our Villa was very spacious and the terrace was great to sit at while listening to the waves. The yoga classes with Tanja and the massages and pedicure at the spa were amazing, the food delicious and Maria and her team really nice hosts. We felt at home and enjoyed our time very much. If we visit Bali again some day, we will definitely come back!
My friend and I just returned from a fabulous 2-week stay at Holiway Garden, which is located on the Northern coast of Bali. While it takes a while to get there (it is a 3-hour car ride from the airport at Denpasar), it is so worth it!! I feel like I have found paradise and could have stayed for much longer. I will definitely come back to Holiway Garden! We stayed in Villa Tara, which has 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Excellent accommodations! The resort is beautifully designed and very comfortable. The combination of friendly Balinese staff and German management is perfect (e.g. the resort functions efficiently, is super clean, and the staff offer great hospitality). I attended a daily yoga class (extra cost) and daily meditation (no cost), which were both great. I also visited the spa nearly every day for some treatment (e.g. variety of massages, facials, pedicure, etc). The ladies working in the spa are very good. Food is high-quality and uses the best ingredients. Meals tend to be very social with guests sitting together at large round tables and chatting. Therefore, it would also be a great place for solo travelers. During my stay, about 2/3 of the guests were German, but folks made an effort to also include the English-speaking guests in dinner conversations. I cannot wait to come back to this piece of heaven next year!…
I was passing and stopped in for a beer. Quite a way off the main road so it is peaceful. Most guests seem to be German. It is a nice place but certainly not a cheap place. About £100 per night. I was only here for a beer though. BY the sea - nice and peaceful.
I discovered Holiway three years ago during a stay for a seminar. I've been back each year since 2015, and I've enjoyed every visit! The rooms are very thoughtfully appointed. The staff is very attentive, and they make even effort to make your visit comfortable. The food is average - which is surprising since the raw material is excellent. Perhaps some more effort or passion for cooking is needed here. The location is quite special. As for a villa or room facing the ocean.
This place is amazing. I booked the yoga and meditation package together with a friend and it was the best choice! Very nice and quite location - heaven on earth! The nicest staff and amazing food. Yoga and meditation directly at the beach and awesome private trips to book and explore Bali! Quite high prices, but it is definitely worth it!!!! Very friendly and familiar atmosphere - awesome for single travelers as well! I will definitely come back!!!!!
Stopped for a drink. Very surprised, looks like heaven on earth. Is a vegans/vegetarian place. Health is number one. Nice, clean, super resort. Swimming pool, nice restaurant, yoga and chill places. Honour there name, holiway...
I spend 2 weeks there. I really appreciated the help from the owner and the Manager Ines. Both are German which was helping too I got unfortunately sick, but all are very helpful and supportive I recommend to have a single private Villa. I got lucky i had my own room and just sharing bath room. Food a bit pricey but good
My wife and I stayed here in the Frangipani Suite and had a lovely relaxing visit. This suite was right beside reception so was a little noisy, but not too much. The pool, restaurant and staff were all first class and we were made to feel very welcome. We had family with us, albeit in another suite, and they had children with them. The staff catered for the children very well and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this establishment for a lovely quiet relaxing holiday
Lush green surrounding, the soothing sea wind, the blue limitless sea, the smiling staff, it is just the place to run away from the hectic, demanding life...or should I say, city life? ( I have been several times there before writing here) I read many of the reviews and can't agree more that Holiway is certainly the first choice for me when going to the northern part of bali. A lot of activities to choose but I will just review what I did internally. The pool is tiny but cute, and the water is fresh. The "bale" (gazebo) is wonderful to stay at night, sipping beer or juice or perhaps wine, and feeling the stars and the moon is watching us. The food is standard both in price and taste. I like the most the fact that the veggie are fresh, as also the chicken meat, etc. Although I wish they had chicken porridge (bubur) for breakfast. The restaurant is nice and we blend there and the manager Hermann Sattler chats with us and makes us feel welcomed and familiar. There's a place to do activities like singing course, tantra, etc but I just joined the singing lessons so far. I hope they can keep the good quality and adding more, if possible.…
We visited for a massage and dinner. The massage was very professional and the masseuses really listened to what we wanted and were very friendly. The massage was fantastic value for money and we all came out feeling much lighter. The dinner was superb, brilliant cocktails and tasty food, all excellent value for money.
