Take a look inside Villa Tao

Villa Tao is a beachfront vacation residence that embodies the seamless blend, in both architecture and design, of the traditional and the contemporary. Interiors – of recycled wood and stone – are appointed with weathered and chic woven wood furnishings, as well as with modern, comfortable pieces. Amenities are deliberately first rate – to assure each and every guest’s absolute convenience and diversion. Built on a hill above the shores of Balian Beach, Villa Tao, truly, accords you stylish and easy living amidst a coastal and rustic air.

Location

Villa Tao is based along Balian Beach which, for a time, was Bali’s best-kept surfing secret. If you’re a surfer, you can, right here, hit the waves – famed for its multiple reef breaks. On your first day tour, you can explore the area by combing the long coast of pristine, squid-ink, black sand, where, along the way, you’ll encounter the Soka Bat Temple. On another day trip, you can go and see a local mekepung or bull race, followed by a stop at the Lumbung Berkat Dragon Fruit Gardens.

The villa was very comfortable - living areas had fabulous comfortable lounging spots to read, play cards, sunbake. The surf rolled in day after day- a surfer's dream. The pool was fantastic for a refreshing swim. Although the house is some distance from the nearby village with restaurants, we did not mind the isolation. All the villa's staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our chef/cook Leena provided fantastic meals on request: she needed a bit of encouragement to cook Balinese spicy food and add chilli, so be specific in your tastes when asking requesting a meal! Our manager Made was very helpful in arranging transport, daytrips, family surfing lessons, in-house massages and local information. A daytrip up to Pupuan to walk through a coffee plantation to a beautiful waterfall, then through villages growing cacao, coffee, cloves and other spices, down to Medewi was particularly memorable. The manager's assistants kept the place swept and tidy from an early hour and into the night, & provided endless cups of coffee and other refreshments. Our 6 days (5 guests) were great value for money and super relaxing. By the way, the community warung directly in front of the house was great for simple lunches/meals/drinks. The only improvements that I can suggest are to be directed to the owner, who needs to do some maintenance. All bedrooms were great except for the lower bedroom (with mutiple beds -closest to pool) This room was unpleasantly mouldy and dank, the bedding smelt mouldy, and my children did not want to sleep in here because of the stale dank air. The mosquito nets were decorative? - covered in dust and unusable. I would have preferred to turn off the aircon, open the balcony doors when sleeping, but this was not possible without mosquito nets.
