Villa Cantik could not be more different from its neighbouring big sisters. When we visited, a couple with young baby had just stayed there and had clearly enjoyed the secluded privacy of the villa. Lounging in the sun or taking meals poolside at the simple table make this villa so casual and relaxing. The living room is less impressive but I suspect is little used, other than for watching a DVD of an evening or knocking up a quick drink. The whole focus of this villa is the stretch from bedrooms to pool. Shalimar is well set up for large groups, a special function or extended family – 12 bedrooms in total. Villa Cantik would be a perfect hideaway for, say, the grandparents or those needing a little space away from the main crowd. It also works perfectly well in its own right as a villa for a small family or a couple of friends. As with all the villas in Shalimar, the staff are excellent although you do have to search them out a bit at Cantik as they may assume you would rather have your privacy.

Everything was just perfect, from the warm welcome by Mr. Nano from Elite Havens, Mr. Agung and his staff to the discrete yet friendly service, the delicious cooking and the beautiful and comfortable antique house we were staying in. We did not leave the house even once and three days was really too short! My parents and I had a lovely time and I will gladly do business with your company again in the future.
