Ever woken up to find yourself facing a giant postcard? Well it happened to us at Chalina Estate this morning. Having left the master suite curtains open, we awoke to rice fields and coconut trees of the deepest green against a backdrop of blue sky and mountains, all neatly framed by wide glass doors. Wish-you-were-here picture perfect and not a bad way to start a day.

And it just got better and better. We had a leisurely breakfast of perfectly cooked eggs and too much coffee before eventually relocating to the sun beds beside the pool to bake in the sun, read books, swim and be waited on by the butlers: and hardly a man-made noise to be heard all day, unless you count the clink of ice cubes in an empty glass anticipating a refill.

Highlights

No noise apart from birdsong, the breeze in the coconut trees and the sounds of the river. The garden and the views will charm the socks off even the most cynical, hard-to-please and finicky father-in-law, while the mammoth size and design of the estate makes a wedding setting so beautiful that the bride may be in danger of no one remembering what she wore.

Surprises

In order to let in all that beautiful blue sky and greenery there is lots of plate glass that’s tempting to walk through (we know, we nearly did it twice) so watch yourself and the kids. Oh, and you will need long legs or stirrups to get comfortable on the two upstairs toilets!

We chose Chalina Estate as our wedding villa and could not be more happier and impressed with our stay. It is a beautiful spacious villa with well taken care grounds, service impeccable and welcoming, making it easy for the family - bride and groom can not really fault it. We will come again next time to stay at Chalina for a holiday so we can enjoy the views and the many amenities and services it has to offer. Major thanks to Agus and his team.

This is a wonderful Balinese villa. As you walk in you cant help but go "Wow". Beautiful gardens, sensational living spaces and a huge pool. We have pools at home but a pool this big is not only great to use but it you feel like the King with a private mansion! Most of the rooms are large and apart from the main house with 3 rooms there are 3 separate villas. The decor is well done. The rooms are full of charm. The saffron bedroom whilst stunning is so big it is hard to cool. Echo and Pererenan Beaches are 10 minutes away on a push bike (provided). Echo beach is a great place for a Bintang beer and to watch the surfers. No good for swimming unless you are a surfer. The toddlers enjoyed paddling and making sandcastles with the black sand. We also hired motor scooters. Its looks scary on the roads but we loved using them and we are no spring chickens. Easy ride to Tanah Lot on them and they are $7 a day. We had our kids and grand kids with us (10 of us all up). The place was great for the whole family, but you do need to keep watch on the toddlers near the water and ledges. The staff were outstanding. They genuinely want you to enjoy your holiday and are very very attentive. Agus, Pittoo, Aria, Tina, Wyan, and Gide just to mention a few of the friendly and helpful staff. The chef was excellent and fed us wonderful dishes and was very flexible. There is a good projector but we just enjoyed playing family games at night (which you need to bring.) We also hired a table tennis table which was a good thing to do for a family. The place is very quiet and looks onto rice fields. This means you are away from bigger places like Seminyak. It takes about half an hour in the provided car to get there. One negative is that there is no credit card facility. Take plenty of local cash. It cost us about $25 per day per person for all our food needs (we ate well including suckling pig and lobster). You pay for food at cost plus a small mark up. The ATMs are 20 mins away and do not always work and have a $100 to $250 maximum limit. Chalina Estate is a five star experience and we would love to go back one day. It has provided us with wonderful memories which we will treasure forever.

From the time you enter chalina estate until you leave (which you won't to leave) it is the most tranquil place. The staff at the villa make this place so special they are so inviting and are always there to help. We where lucky enough to celebrate our wedding at the villa which was the perfect setting for our big day. We had breakfast at the villa everyday and a few other meals the food was amazing. It was no problem for the chef catering for 15 hungry mouths 1 being a vegetarian. We would highly recommend chalina estate to anyone wanting a peaceful escape or for you special event. And a HUGE thank you to the staff they are all so accommodating.

The villa is great value for money although its showing its age. It would have been good to have things like the projector working and to have the staff actually available rather than having to go and get them all the time. Also a credit card machine is a must; a 3% fee is much better than having to take the car for a daily ATM run for millions of ruphia. Food was fantastic, Mr Bangous was accommodating (although when we had our wedding there the staff all but disappeared completely despite having 14 guests in house). However, all in all Chalina is a unique and special place, the ideal Bali hideaway to celebrate special moments with friends and it will always have a special place in our hearts and the hearts of those who stayed on site with us. We certainly look forward to returning.

based on 52 user reviews. Ever woken up to find yourself facing a giant postcard? Well it happened to us at Chalina Estate this morning. Having left the master suite curtains open, we awoke to rice fields and coconut trees of the deepest green against a backdrop of blue sky and mountains, all neatly framed by wide glass doors. Wish-you-were-here picture perfect and not a bad way to start a day.

And it just got better and better. We had a leisurely breakfast of perfectly cooked eggs and too much coffee before eventually relocating to the sun beds beside the pool to bake in the sun, read books, swim and be waited on by the butlers: and hardly a man-made noise to be heard all day, unless you count the clink of ice cubes in an empty glass anticipating a refill.

Please wait...
