Bali Day 2: Relaxing at Pondok Sara Villa, Seminyak, Bali

If previously you read my my first day in Bali, this is the continuous story about the next place that we stayed after checking out from Airport Kuta Hotel & Residence. We arrived to Pondok Sara Villa a bit early around 10.00am and according to the hotel, check in time will be at 2.00pm. So, we just register ourselves first and place our bag at the counter before going to sightseeing at Legian Street. Actually we were walking for quiet long, approximately about 4 hours and we came back to hotel by taxi cause we were extremely exhausted.

Sharp at 2.00pm, we arrived to the villa and greeted by Sri, the front office staff and she brought us to our villa unit. We are really excited to see our nest as its really beautiful on the web and hopefully we won't get disappointed with the real one. But hell yeah, our Villa (numbered 18) was truly amazing.

Once we stepped into the door, we can see the clear water (greeny-blue-ish) private pool which was really awesome. This is really good to cool yourself since the weather in Bali was really hot.  

At the opposite side of the pool is the living and open kitchen area. The living area is pretty simple with setting for 4 person, coffee table and a flat screen TV. As for the open kitchen, it is quiet impressive because guest can cook here. There is a gas stove, medium size fridge, cooking utensils, plate, glasses and a microwave too. I am a forever cook. But at that moment, I still didn't figure out about what to cook here since my initial plan is to hunt for Indonesian foods in Bali. 

Next, I would like to bring you to the bedroom. It is very spacious with super queen bed, a very chilling air conditioner, romantic warm light with a huge glass wall in order to allow a natural lighting to your bedroom. This is really a nice room, indeed. 

Move to the next section is the dressing room with big wardrobe and water sink. Not only that, if you think the pool is not enough for you, there is a Balinese style bath up with hot shower pipe. 

If just now I shared about the kitchen right? Yes, I cooked something on that night. Remember that previously we went for 4 hours walking before checking in to our villa? We dropped by to Bintang Supermarket and grabbed some food paste which is really looking good. So, we take this opportunity to sample the paste (we bought some fresh chicken and veggies too) and test cooked it. The good thing is, all paste was too awesome and we bought more the next day. 

So, how about the weakness of this villa? I am Asian, noise is normal. But for some other maybe that is annoying. In certain period of time, perhaps you will hear the neighbor's voices and motorbike sound, but it is just once in awhile. There are mozzies here too, but don't worry because they will prepare a mozzies spray for you to use. The TV is only at living area. So, if you want to watch TV before sleeping, it can be a problem. Besides that, there is no fan at living area, if you feel to hot, just jump into the pool. Last but not least, this villa is not small kids friendly because of the pool. So, be ware if you have one. 

I'm closing my eyes about the bad point of this place. It was still a charming place to stay with price about Rp 1,600,000 from Pondok Sara Villa is a nice place for honeymoon maker or for someone who want to relax from hectic routines. We didn't spend so much time at the beach tho. Just be lazy in our villa was nice too. 

Location info: 
This villa is located at Jalan Arjuna (well knowned as Double 6) in Seminyak area. Look for green signboard on your right hand side if you come from the 4 junction of Legian street.
