Our review   Overall Rating: 8.50


We arrived at Ombak Laut at night and, after being warmly welcomed at the villa gateway, were led across the romantically lit gardens to the even more romantic Gladak guesthouse. It was too dark to see the ocean but we could certainly hear it, and were soon lulled to sleep by the rhythmic waves.

Exploring the villa and its grounds next morning was a delight. The Gladak house itself is unique and charming; a rustic country cottage – Javanese style. Standing on its broad wrap-around veranda, views are of terraces of green rice-fields, an antique wooden balé overlooking the villa’s second, tear-drop shaped pool, and an immaculate tennis court. Up in the living pavilion a tray of coffee had already been thoughtfully provided – just what was needed before an early morning walk along Cemagi beach. Ladies in colourful sarongs were setting out their offerings on the sands or carrying them up to the village temple right next door to the villa. The sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing and it was all so perfect we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming.

But Ombak Laut has more to offer than a perfect setting. Having been a much loved family holiday home for years, it caters to all ages and interests; kids, teenagers and athletes have bikes, tennis, billiards, swimming and table tennis to keep them happy, and there’s a good selection of music and movies too. All the bedrooms apart from the master are at ground level, so the villa is also suitable for elderly or stair-shy friends and family.

We were only too happy to leave the rest of the world behind and immerse ourselves in this idyllic setting. The staff are lovely, the food – especially the barbecued lamb and rock lobster – is delicious and it seemed a crime not to spend every possible moment absorbing those views. At the end of a lazy day, we wandered up to the balé perched on a grassy slope just above the beach and raised our glasses to our good fortune and to a spectacular Bali sunset.

A fantastic location, villa and staff. The whole atmosphere and facilities combined with relaxed yet attentive service allowed our big group to have the best of both worlds; luxurious privacy as well as ample space to relax, mingle and socialise. Then sunsets were magic. Perfect!

There aren't enough words in the English language to convey how awesome our experience has been at Ombak Laut. Every little thing was taken care off, every need attended to, every desire sated. The staff are the real highlight of this villa, their knowledge knows no boundaries and their promptness is adorable. They went above and beyond to cater to dietary demands, producing, incredible dishes at short notice. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean and landscaping was maintained to the most amazing standards. The amenities were wonderful and we really enjoy the swimming pool, the tennis court, bale sunset. I must mention the upstairs room, where we spent hours playing billiards and board games. Ombak Laut is amazing in every way imaginable. Highly recommended. Thank you.

We have a family holiday for 15 of us every year, previously staying in villas throughout Bali, Lombok and Thailand. We all voted Villa Ombak Laut as the best we have stayed at in terms of size, service and location. Villa manager Made and his lovely staff, including wait staff, gardeners and security, all provided excellent service. Thanks to chef Alit for the great food too. Afternoon drinks and entrees in the sunset bale while watching the locals and the blowhole at the sea temple is a definite highlight. Being away from the tourist spots, but still close enough for a visit, is also a plus as Cemagi village lets you experience the best parts of Bali - friendly locals and beautiful countryside. We loved the villa so much we cancelled a trip to Lembongan and extended our stay here.

We'll come and stay with the villa again.

This villa is amazing. Staff at the villa are fantastic and they are only too happy to help with any needs. The Villa is about 45 min to 1 hour away from main shopping and restaurant area of Seminyak depending on the traffic. The chef is able to cook more variety than is on the menu so make sure you ask. We all enjoyed our stay and will return to Villa Ombak Laut.
