Our garden view room overlooked lush tropical gardens, a river and had glimpses of the ocean. The surroundings were very relaxing and the multi-tiered pool with slides was fun with the kids. Just what we needed.
We loved staying here, the staff made us feel very welcome and were quick to help us out. This is a great place for staying if you want to stay around the villa and relax, there is no need to leave the villa while you are there. If you want to go out you can access a driver through the villa staff.
This place was perfect for a quiet calm and serene stay. It's definitely off the beaten path and well away from the "scene" of Kuta/Seminyak. If you're looking for a nightlife, this is not it (this is definitely in the country side - I had a cow moo at me good morning while I was doing my morning exercise on the roof patio), but if you are looking for natural beauty and a place that is clean and comfortable for relaxation and serenity, it's exceptional. The room was beautiful, with gorgeous views over the rice fields to the ocean and an easy walk to the beach. I walked to the Tanah Lot Temple from the hotel via the paths along the cliffs that cut through the rice fields (there is a longer walk along the actual paved road) that the staff let me know about. It was a bit of an adventurous walk, but nothing strenuous by any scope of the imagination and very beautiful. The staff was nothing but lovely and helpful in every way. Completely accommodating and very down home. There is a sense of "luxury" in that everything was very clean, and somewhat polished, but also had the feel of a Mom and Pop joint in the service... just very genuine. The food was generally ok (the duck was actually excellent). Watched sunset over the water each night. By night time, everything is quiet and completely restful. It was wonderful hospitality all the way around. It's not the Hilton, there are some quirks, but I mean that in the best way possible. I would go back in a heart beat.
Villa Luku is just beautiful, set in a quiet and peaceful location out of the hustle and bustle of busy Kuta/Seminyak. The staff are amazing, happy to arrange anything you need. The villa it self was lovely, private and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this for a quiet getaway...but there are lots of steps to go down to the villas so not suited to those who physically can't handle that. My villa Yudistira was the second villa so not too bad.
