The Santai, Umalas Bali

My current favourite of all Bali stays, The Santai is a new collection of spacious boutique pool villas nestled in the tranquil surroundings of one of Bali's most sought after neighbourhoods. If you remember, I briefly covered The Amala and surely, hideaway retreats are definitely my kind of thing, especially if they're positioned close to picturesque rice fields and local village temples.

On this particular trip, the resort's very charming executive chef cooked up a delicious local banquet in the comfort and privacy of our three bedroom villa, and by the end of it all, we concluded that everything was executed flawlessly – from the welcome rose petal bath and their highly personalised service, to their private shuttle services and remarkable authentic Balinese dining.

Guess I'll have to see you for round two, The Santai.
