Villa Leha Leha Reviews


Our Review

Overall Rating:

Leha Leha is meticulously maintained, and looks as good as new despite it being ten years old. Granted the kitchen has been upgraded in the last two years but the rest of the villa is tidily kept, beautifully clean and the soft furnishings flush with colour. Judging by the photographs scattered around the property this is a cherished holiday home. It is independently run by the owner with the assistance of two resident managers in charge of handling guest relations both of whom we found to be polite, knowledgeable and able to speak good English. Pickups from the airport were included in the rate, and a car with driver (one of the managers) was available to us throughout our stay (first tank of petrol free). Since there are two master bedrooms, we felt this villa would be great for two families holidaying together as well as for groups of friends or one extended family. The dual storey pavilion certainly maximised living space, although in absence of ceiling fans the upper floor lounge tended to get quite hot during the day. The villa’s proficient resident cook offers Indonesian fare – though ordering in or dining out at one of Sanur’s many restaurants increases your options. It’s also possible to arrange for an Italian chef to cook for you at the villa, but fees are quite steep ($150-200 plus grocery costs), so we felt that this option might be best saved for a special occasion; that said, he is very highly recommended in the guest book so perhaps it’s worth the extra splurge!

Highlights

We really loved the swimming pool whose attractiveness was heightened by the encroaching jungle and functionality maximised by a shallow section ideal for children as well as the pool bar. We also liked the multi-levelled lounge pavilion that offers a choice of sociable gathering spots. Villa Leha Leha is a smart property and very well maintained.

Surprises

Children are welcome at Leha Leha and will love it, however parents do need to keep an eye on them around the pool as there’s no boundary aside from the vegetation that slopes down the river bank; and they’ll also have to keep their eyes peeled around the edge of the ground floor living pavilion as it is encircled by an unfenced pond.
