We’d heard some pretty tasty things about The Shanti Residence, so we arrived with great expectations. And this is what we found: the beds were soft, the sky was blue, the sun warm and the hospitality generous. After a delicious night’s sleep in a regal bed, followed by a sumptuous breakfast, the pool and its sun loungers were about as far as we managed to get for the lion’s share of the day. The staff were professional and, more importantly, readily on hand to bring us cold drinks, lunch and complimentary afternoon tea as we lay there soaking up the sounds of birdlife and views of the distant horizon. That night the kitchen produced a particularly tasty meal for us, which left us fit to bursting. Yes, cloaked in privacy and surrounded by greenery, this stunning villa nigh on forces total relaxation from its guests. Overlooking the sea, far, far away from the crowds, with three pools, a home cinema, superb staff and a tantalising menu of foods and wines, The Shanti Residence requires no leaving. So, bring your favourite books, toys, sunscreen and lover, and get ready for the stay of stays.

Highlights

Notwithstanding the three pools (four if you count the jacuzzi), the views, the great staff and a home cinema that will rock your world (in a good way), The Shanti Residence is simply a beautiful place to be.

Surprises

None that we could find; although hearing the ocean just over the cliff is a bit of a tease when the nearest beach access is over two kilometres away by road.

We had six adults and three children in our family. We first searched through hotel resorts, however, none offered large enough pool villa for the entire family. My buddy in Jakarta introduced me to Marketing Villas who was able to offer me an extensive list of private villas large enough to accomodate my family. My final pick was the Shanti Residence because I wanted to stay in Nusa Dua. The villa is located in a very quiet neighborhood with a great view overlooking the Indian Ocean. The entrance is well guarded by security personell. The property is much better than what you see in the pictures on their web. You get five suite rooms with more than enough space, three pools, a well-equipped video room, a spacious living room with free WIFI connection, a large dining room, and so much more. The offer an extensive menu offering both East and West cuisines. We tried a number of different dishes and they were all above average (if you want to dine out, St. Regis is only 5-minute drive away). Staff is very helpful and attentive to your needs. The only downside was that the exercise room was not well maintained - the running machine didn't work. Other than that, staying at the Shanti Residence was an amazing and unforgettable experience for my family. I will definitely go back.
