We came across Villa Cokelat at the last minute when our travel plans changed. It turned out to be a blessing as the villa was gorgeous and our time at the villa was so very relaxing.
The villa is beautiful and spacious. It is a very recent build and quality finish. The master bedroom upstairs has amazing views over rice paddys and the upstairs bathroom is massive.
Downstairs has two huge bedrooms, each with lovely outdoor bath / shower / toilet set in private gardens. All rooms have TV’s and Transvision and great A/C.
The pool is HUGE and a perfect temperature for swimming any time of day or night. Pools at most villas we have stayed at in Bali are generally a little fresh but Cokelat’s is spot on.
The villa is quiet and secluded despite being only a 5 min walk from Canggu square which has a great deli, Italian restaurant and a childrens toy shop. Canggu Club which has a water park, 10 pin bowling, etc is a 10 min walk away. A security guard is posted out front all night and though unlikely to be needed is handy for late orders of food and drink which he happily collects for you.
The complimentary bicycles were great for getting around Canggu. La Finca(spanish restaurant) is a 10 min ride through rice paddys and has tasty cocktails and tapas.
Wayan the villa owner is a local and very easy to deal with. He went out of his way to make our stay great. Gunna (villa manager) and Susan (cook / housekeeper) were very helpful and our kids loved playing with them. The villa would work really well for a large family or three couples… anyone who wants a beautiful villa in a peaceful setting.
We would definitely recommend Villa Cokelat and we will definitely be back!
