Combine that with the lovely pool, good food and company and we ended up staying in the Villa more than I thought.

The staff were wonderful and our chef's cooking so good that we ate in six nights out of seven.

The slippery slide and pool were a hit with both adults and kids alike.
We ended up having lunch in Kuta (not as bad as I thought but no desire to go back), trips into Seminyak (fancy shops mixed with broken footpaths and uber-exclusive beach hotel and bars).

|We were expecting this.....|
|But we got this!|
The most frustrating of it was that the driver was obviously aware of both issues but neglected to mention them till we got there. So the whole afternoon was a bit of a debacle but we managed to laugh it off and enjoy a nice lunch of nice campur at a beachside warung about 10m from the building site!

Our second excursion was into the mountains and the north of the island passing through some lovely countryside, stopping off at a coffee plantation and ending up by a temple on a lake amidst lovely gardens.
