I booked this villa for a girls weekend and it was fantastic. Rooms are great and big and bathrooms are huge.
The pool is amazing and the villa is gorgeous.
But the main reason to go here is the staff, Ketuk and the staff where absolutely outstanding nothing was too much trouble.Ketuk made dinner one night and it was delicious and very reasonably priced.
Will definitely go back.
As soon as you enter Villa Nelayan you are immersed in luxury, the 4 self-contained bed and bathroom houses are set in beautiful gardens and situated around the pool. Separate to the bedrooms is the main house, with high ceilings and a fully equipped kitchen, in which the staff prepare customised breakfast for you daily.
The bathrooms are beautiful, each including an over-sized bathtub and outdoor shower. The bedrooms are spacious and welcoming, with air-conditioning. The pool is a great (and very well-kept) place to hang out and have a few drinks and cool off.
The location of the Villa is ideal to visit all of the best beaches, bars, restaurants, shopping and spas that Canggu has to offer, yet is set in a nice quiet street (one street back from the busy main street).
This is a truly beautiful place to stay and is made even better by the quality of the staff on site. Every morning we received a beautiful breakfast, which catered to every guests individual needs. The staff cleaned every room, bathroom and the other areas of the villa to perfection each day - never was a single leaf out of place. Paris (the extremely kind and helpful Villa manager) went above and beyond to ensure that every request was fulfilled quickly and effortlessly. Special mentions to Paris, Agus, Adhi and Made who never failed to have a smile on their faces and made our stay truly memorable. We will definitely be back!
We stayed at this villa with another family recently. Immediately on arrival we were blown away with the sheer size of the property not to mention the late night meal (we arrived after midnight and very much appreciated the fried rice and drinks), bouquet of flowers and beautiful welcome by Made. The location is fantastic - a short walk to the beach and a comfortable 10 minute walk to the main street. We took advantage of the included driver for longer trips to Echo beach and Seminyak but you could go further afield if desired. The staff are very accommodating and even arranged scooter hire and lessons for us! We enjoyed a traditional Balinese seafood BBQ one night for dinner. The chef had purchased the snapper and prawns fresh from the market that morning. The pool is huge and got plenty of use during our stay. We enjoyed movies from the large selection of DVD's and movie channel and the WIFI was excellent. You can use the fridge for your own food and drinks and there is a water tower with endless chilled and boiling water. The bathrooms are huge! Outdoor showers and huge stone baths in each ensuite. The property itself was beautiful but it is the staff that made our stay a truely memorable experience - from the beautiful breakfasts each morning to keeping the rooms and grounds immaculate and all just quietly working in the background. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with fantastic service close to all that Canggu has to offer then this is the villa for you.
I cannot recommend this Villa enough!!! We had a magical holiday staying there. The place was beautiful and clean and the staff were amazing. We all felt very safe there. It is a short walk to the beautiful Canguu Beach, which is an amazing place to be at sunset. There are so many amazing places to eat and hang out. Only a few doors down you will find the Serenity Yoga retreat which is fabulous and you can do yoga everyday if you like. We also had amazing massages most days, the ladies would come to the villa and for only $25 we enjoyed relaxing massages. My brother had his birthday there and Paris and the team put on a delicious local spread for our dinner. I cried when I had to leave and I will be back!!

I recently stayed at the villa with a group of family and friends to celebrate my birthday. From my perspective the villa catered perfectly to all my requirements. Specifically; it's spacious, private, and Made and his team delivered a customer experience that was second to none. Nothing was a problem, or an effort for Made - he arranged group transportation to/from Seminyak, Uluwatu, offered dinner recommendations, and arranged massages at the villa. He even arranged a house call by a doctor! Canggu is a charming area, and there are plenty of good dining options close to the villa. I agree with a piece of constructive feedback provided by a recent visitor - the bathrooms would benefit from a thorough cleaning/update. Having said that, this is a private villa and not a luxury resort, and while aspects of the property aren't necessarily five star, the personalized service and attention you'll receive most certainly is.
