Kayumanis Nusa Dua Private Villa & Spa
- Room Type : 2 stories owner Villa with pool
- Stay Nights : 3 nights
- Stay Num : 5 people
I chose "Kayumanis Nusadua Private Villa & Spa" because the hotel has good reviews and it is located in the developing resort area called Nusa Dua. Besides, there is a private villa. Since my grandmother was also coming this time, I was looking for a villa where we could spend a slow and quiet time. A travel agency introduced us a relaxing resort hotel aiming at adults above 18 years old. When I looked it up on the internet and a travel site, I found good reviews. You can get a breakfast whenever you like and afternoon tea is also available. On top of that, when I looked at the pictures, I thought there was a sense of privacy so it would be nice to spend at the villa and chill.
What is the exterior of the hotel like? Check entrance and reception
Maybe it was simply because we arrived late at night, but the entrance looked small and it was hard to find it. The villa was located in a hidden quiet area making it look a little more like a hidden resort for adults.
Because the entrance and the reception were narrow, they were united into one. There were one or two staff in the daytime and one staff at night. Whenever I came in and out, they always smiled and gave me a friendly response.
When you have any requests, you can go directly to the front desk or even call from the room.
Passage to villa
2-story owner Villa What's the room with pool like?
The picture of an entrance door of the villa. It seemed like a holiday resort surrounded by nature like Bali as a whole. Because only up to 20 pairs can accommodate, it is a quiet resort for adults.
We were a group of 5 people and stayed in a villa which can accommodate up to 6 people.
Entrance door seen from within the villa
In the villa, there was a flat owner room(left building), a kitchen and living room on the first floor, a building with two bedrooms on the second floor (right building), and a private pool.It was my first time staying in a villa, but its quality was beyond my imagination.
Living room on the first floor
Kitchen on the first floor
There was a dining table and chairs right next to the kitchen. There was also a service that brings breakfast to the room, and I was able to enjoy eating breakfast in the room.
Afternoon tea service
Each room had a bathroom (shower, washroom, toilet). Every room was burning a mosquito coil. Canopy was attached to the bed and a pillow was fluffy. It was comfortable to sleep on. Two people were sleeping on a bed which was slightly larger than the king size, but the space was big enough for two.
There was TV set in the bedroom.
There was a desk next to the bed.
From the bedroom on 2nd floor, we saw a private pool on the 1st floor.
The opposite window was facing outside the premises, but I could not see anything except the green trees. Since it is a private villa and spa, I think it is designed to be a completely private space. Because there were no buildings higher than 2 stories in the facility, I think that it is true for the whole structure in the villa. There was no sounds other than birds' tweeting sounds.
The depth of the private pool was about the height of the chest. Leaves and flowers were floating, but the water was beautiful. Towels were prepared in the room and you bring them to the beach and the pool. Temperature was just right to swim in the pool. There were enough deck chairs available for all guests on the poolside.
There was a bathroom in each room. But only the owner room was outdoors and had a stone bathtub.
There is no bathtub in the bathroom of our room, only a shower room. There was a shower room at the far end of the bathroom. The bathroom was handicap-accessible and the shower room was separated by glass doors. The shower room had two kinds of shower, overhead shower and hand shower.
Although both temperature and water pressure could be adjusted, I thought that water pressure can be a little stronger.
In front of the shower room, there was a toilet on the left side.
There was a sink in the opposite side of the toilet.
Shampoo, conditioner, body scrub, toothbrush etc. were prepared for amenities. Although they were relatively minimal items, there was nothing particularly troubling without them. The shampoo, conditioner, body scrub was a Bali-like, organic fragrance / texture. Because it is a unique scent, you either love it or hate it. I brought a shampoo and a conditioner for traveling, but this time I used what was prepared in the amenities. The hair became smooth and moist.
A picture of the door of the bathroom seen from the shower room. The bathroom was black tiled and it was dark at both day and night. Because lighting is dark, it may not be suitable when you apply a makeup.
There was also a hair dryer.
Closet and Safety Deposit Box
There was a safety box and a closet in each room.
In the closet there was a bathrobe, a basket (for going out to the neighborhood), hangers and a safety box.
It was a standard safety box, so there was no problems with operation.
Inside the safety box
Mini bar / cafe
A refrigerator was installed in each room.
In the refrigerator, there were always diet cola (can) × 2, sprite (can) × 2, bintang beer (can) × 2, water (bottle) × 4 stocked. Water at room temperature (bottle) × 1 as well. You can ask by yourself if they run out, and they will be replenished upon room cleaning twice a day.
Restaurants and shops in the hotel
We used "Piasan Restaurant" in the villa for breakfast.
Entrance to "Piasan Restaurant"
It is a very fashionable restaurant.
I was able to choose as much as I wanted from a wide range of menu. Both western and Indonesian cuisines were delicious. Salads, egg dishes, main (fish and nasi goreng etc.), dessert, fruit juice, coffee after meal were rich in variety.
Nasi goreng I had for breakfast
On the private beach, there is a service limited to 6 people which offers you a breakfast while you watch the morning sun called Sunrise Morning (Prior reservation is necessary, and menu is chosen from exclusive menus. No extra charge which is similar to the breakfast every morning).
There was a shop selling small glassy Bali souvenirs near the entrance.
There were many sundry goods made in Bali, and they sold the basket bag I saw in the room. Basically there are no people in the store but the staff at the entrance will come and help you when you pay.
Facilities in the hotel
There was also a shared outdoor pool in the hotel. During the stay, no one was using the shared pool, but it was beautiful.
There was a private beach as well. It is within the premises, but it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beach. I also borrowed a bike. The private beach is along the usual beach, but it was divided by partitions. A private bar counter is provided and you can ask for a drink as you like. The beach was beautiful and the sunrise from the beach was awesome.
I experienced a spa there and it was full-scale and very good. The 90-minute spa is a service offered to all guests and you need to make a reservation in advance.
Hotel surroundings environment
There were lots of hotels in the surroundings, and it was easy to relax because the area was overall clean and quiet. The hotels seemed to be facing the beach in general. The nearest facility around the hotel is Bali collection which is 5 minutes by car. In order to enter the Nusa Dua area where the hotel is located, it is necessary to go through the security gate. The security is good and I think that this is especially the area where tourists can spend time at peace in Bali. As I left the security gate, the local scenery of Bali spread out at once.
Staff & Customers
Every staff member was very considerate and attentive. In the morning they cleaned the premises very thoroughly and greeted me with a smile whenever I passed nearby. A cooperation between staff was well, and if you requested something they responded promptly. There was nothing particularly inconvenient.
Because those over 18 years old can stay at the villa, the guests were only adults. I saw a family celebrating a wedding ceremony and couples etc. Of course there were groups of women staying together. As seen from the reviews, it seems that some people stay alone. A wide range of age groups was there.
It is about 40 minutes by car from the airport. Because it is Nusa Dua, there are many resort hotels around and there is something like a gate to enter that area. I think that the security is very good. In the vicinity, there is an outdoor shopping center named Bali collection which is 5 minutes by car. A supermarket etc is also there. Food and cosmetics souvenirs were cheaper than the ones at the airport. The hotel staff will pick you up from the hotel by car. Cookies and water are prepared in the shuttle car and you can have them as you want.
We were glad we stayed at this hotel. In the beginning, I considered whether or not we should stay at Ritz Carlton which is in the same price range as the villa, but we decided to stay at “Kayumanis Nusa Dua Private Villa and Spa” as we were a group of five and wanted to stay together. The facilities of villa looked exactly the same as shown on a homepage and it was like an ideal hidden resort in Bali. The villa I stayed was much larger than I had expected and beautiful. The staff were also very kind and attentive. Every morning we had a plenty of breakfast menu to choose from and everything was delicious. I would like to stay here again when I visit Bali next time. I booked this villa for my family trip this time, but I thought that it would be nice to go with my friends and my partner.
