What a lovely villa for families with kids! This struck us as soon as we stepped onto Villa Marie’s ironwood sundeck framing the large swimming pool. Small kids will love the huge shallow section conveniently located alongside the living pavilion, and parents will appreciate being able to keep an eye on them from practically every room while blissing out on the ocean vistas and the privacy of two separate master bedroom pavilions on either side of the pool.

We think this would be a great villa for six couples too. In addition to the two master suites, the four equally large bedrooms in the two-storey sleeping block each enjoy privacy as well as a small deck or balcony and fabulous bathroom, and the two twin rooms can also be configured as kings; so no short straw to be drawn here! We did notice that neither of the two dining tables had enough room for 12 guests, but have a feeling the highly efficient management team will be onto that pretty speedily. The fabulous facilities of the adjoining Pandawa Cliff Estate sports centre and spa provides an alternative source of entertainment at your doorstep. Air-conditioned squash, anyone? Doubles tennis? (There’s even an umpire’s chair to keep the competitive spirit in check). And a five-minute drive in your complimentary car will take you to Pandawa Beach where you can swim, snorkel and kayak in the shallow, reef-protected waters.

Highlights

We liked the pavilion design, with main rooms wrapped around the pool, and think it would particularly suit families with young kids who will appreciate the central design and ability to keep an eye from all corners. Having the Pandawa Cliff Estate’s sports and spa pavilion right next door is a plus – and the ocean view from the spa is truly magnificent.

Surprises

With its ocean vista stretching out beyond the glass balustrade, we would happily have spent far more time in the upper-level living room, but for the absence of ceiling fans.  Admittedly it was particularly hot when we stayed, and we expect cool sea breezes are the norm.  The place seems rather sparsely furnished and does echo a bit – but we were only four and probably with a full house of eight guests (with up to three extra kids) that wouldn’t be so noticeable.  While there is no guest washroom in the villa itself, there is one in the garden by the pool.

Everything is perfect from the first to the last minute of our stay. The villa is incredible, the staff is very kind and helpful. They try their best to make us happy. Excellent breakfast, amazing swimming pool and comfortable bedroom! Mini paradise, but generally comfortable all round. Great accommodation for big families. A cozy and relaxed villa with great and friendly staff. Thanks for the service provided. It has been a wonderful stay for all of us.

I can't rate our stay at Pandawa Cliff Estate high enough. It has been an absolutely amazing experience. Not once have we been blessed with beautiful vista's, but everything from the rooms to the pools to the food and especially the friendly customer service has been exceptional. In particular, Adi has been magnificent and has made our stay here one to remember. I will definitely be recommending this place to all my friends and family whenever they may come to Bali. Thank you for such a wonderful experience and always asking Nadia if she wants a watermelon juice. Much love.

This is the first time to experience in villa living in Bali. We are enjoyable to live in, especially for our kids. The swimming pool is suitable for children, and they played twice per day. As a chef enjoyed the cooking in the kitchen. Actually I cooked every day with the local seafood. The staff in the villa are nice, we enjoyed the hospitality provided by the service group, they quite young and speak fluent English. Hopefully next time we choose the villa again and advice to our friends while we are back. Happy New Year.
