My wife and I chose Bali as our honeymoon destination and one of the first recommendations our friends made was for Villa Flow. In the end we split our 10 day stay across Villa Flow in the North and another popular resort in Tanjung Benoa to ensure we got to see the whole island.

The 5 days that we stayed at Villa flow were perfectly serene and amazing in every way - so much so that for the five following days, nothing seemed to compare and we wished that we'd just stayed at Villa flow for the entire time!

The villas: the one that we stayed at was right near the door and designed for two. As you may be aware from other reviews there is no fixed door on the bathroom - more of a saloon door but this wasn't really a problem for us. The beds are king sized and luxurious with mosquito nets and great views over the balcony. The gardens are definitely worth a visit as they grow much of their own food.

Location: Villa Flow is located approximately 90 minutes from the airport (depending on traffic) and within a rural village. It is very remote and fantastic if you want a little bit of peace and serenity but be prepared to book (very reasonably priced) cabs if you'd like to go into town or visit any restaurants.

Service: Absolutely 5 star. Be aware that they do not have a 24 hour service (the kitchen closes at around 10 i believe) but that aside, the service is always amazing. The staff are friendly, efficient, always happy to help and wherever possible they will do what they can to make your stay enjoyable. We also booked ourselves in for many massages and manicures etc (all of which were amazing and very reasonably priced) but unfortunately we didn't get a chance to join in the Yoga classes as we had a number of excursions booked.

Food: Be aware that although there is some choice for breakfast, the dinner option is usually fixed. They will enquire about your allergies/ dietary requirements and work around them but there is no option at dinner time. Having said that, every single meal that we had at Villa Flow was delicious, filling and very satisfying. We enjoyed coming back to our room after excursions to find out what was on the menu for later that night and on the one occasion we chose to dine out, we found that the food paled in comparison to what was available at Villa Flow. Breakfast was a similarly sumptuous affair (no breakfast buffet here - but the trade off is well cooked, nutritional and deliciously filling food instead!)

It's difficult to put into words how much we enjoyed our time here - I think the only note of caution is that it also does come down to personal preference - i.e. if you're looking for your typical "resort" style hotel with all of the corporate feel and packages then this is not the place for you. Villa Flow is luxurious definitely but in a much more subtle way. If you're after some peace and serenity and good quality food and amazing service then look no further.

Final note (and more to the owners) - I think that your staff are a real credit to your company as the experience was perfect from start to finish. It is a shame that we didn't have the option to tip the staff directly (they really were amazing). I would have liked to have been able to express our gratitude in that manner at the end especially given how wonderful our stay was.

Dear Vajak,

We are delighted to read how much you enjoyed your stay with us and we very much appreciate that you have taken the time to share your Villa Flow experience with the TripAdvisor community.

We appreciate the honesty of your assessment that Villa Flow is not a typical "resort" style hotel with all the corporate packages as we have deliberately positioned ourselves away from that to allow our guests the welcoming embrace of a "home away from home."

As we write, we are up-grading many of the aspects of Villa Flow (that "saloon door" will soon be replaced!). We hope you will return to us in the future to see how our subtle luxury has been enhanced.

Best regards

David

When you look for a peaceful quite but beautiful place in bali, where you get privacy and a suberb service with the best healthy food we have ever eaten, then you're completely right at the villa flow.
We stayed 4 nights at villa flow in the bamboob house. Without seeing the "normal" rooms, we would say we made the best choice. You get a living room area on the lower level with a bathroom as well as a terrace where they serve your meals and a bedroom with another bathroom and balcony on the upper level. From above you have a beautiful view over the garden, where they plant all the ingredients for the meals, the sea and the sunset.
We can definitely recommend villa flow being a part of your stay in bali, far away from the crowded tourist areas, but still close enough to see a lot of beautiful spots on day trips.

My sister and I did the week-long yoga package at Villa Flow and there are not enough kind words to say about this place! We loved every minute of every day we spent here. Everything about the resort was top-notch. The food was amazing, the rooms gorgeous and big, the pool incredible. Although it wasn't a yoga resort, the yoga teacher that came everyday was truly inspiring. Best of all was the service. The kind and lovely workers of Villa Flow were like mothers and fathers to us-they took care of us in every possible way and always with that warm Balinese smile. Every attention to detail was included in everything they did. I simply can't thank them enough for showing us such a wonderful time at this resort. I only hope to one day come back again!

This was our second time at Villa Flow. 5 star experience sgain: helpful staff, tasty healthy food, spacious and stylish rooms, very good massage and Kawi's yoga lessons are of course are top class. Hint: rent a scooter and drive around, the area is very beautiful and still pretty untouched compared to other areas in Bali. Will definitely come back again.
