Where I stayed

Villa Flow is a 'relaxing' retreat on the east coast of Bali, a two hour drive from Kuta. We headed up there for three days for what we thought was going to be a quiet, relaxing couple of days with excellent food. Villa Flow is indeed in an excellent location and the view from the room is superb. There is a beautiful infinity pool which overlooks the ocean in the distance.

There is very little around so we have been a bit stuck with what to do. We spent one day in Candidasa, a local traditional Bali village and a very beautiful water palace. Apart from that we really just swam in the pool and a couple of times walked up and down a VERY steep hill to go to a restaurant which had better food! We felt a bit trapped there and felt like the staff were always in our room - to lay out cutlery for breakfast, to bring fruit, to bring breakfast, to take away dishes, to clean the room, to ask if we wanted lunch and/or dinner (if we did, they would come in another 4-6 times depending on the meal), to 'turn down the bed' for the night, to take our breakfast order. For a place that prides itself on relaxation, we felt a bit hassled, and don't even get me started on the chickens clucking and motorbikes whizzing past!

All in all, it was a really nice place and I loved the view and the pool, but it maybe wasn't what I expected.
