Upon arrival we were greeted by the most incredible kind and caring staff who made the check-in process super easy along with a delicious welcoming drink and cool towel.
Arriving in the Villa we were amazed, a large private swimming pool over looked South Ubud’s wonderful scenery with luscious green plants everywhere not to mention a gorgeous mountain in the distance you were definitely in link with the real wonders Bali has to offer. In the villa was a large bed which was incredibly spacious and behind to specially crafted wooden doors held one of the biggest bathrooms we have had on our trip, connecting was a spacious shower and incredibly big sized bath right in the middle. Any honeymooners out there, couples or just friends wanting to get away this is the absolute perfect location not to mention right next door is the Bali Zoo.
Waking up early eager to start the days plans we were taken by a buggy to the Bali Zoo which was connected in our package were we got to have breakfast with orangutangs, elephants and tropical birds. Here each VIP guest got to interact with these beautiful creatures and get up close and personal and get your photos or selfies. Feed the elephants, have birds climbing over you or hold hands with an Orangutang this was definitely one of the highlights of the stay at Sanctoo Villas. The breakfast had a super large buffet which a variety of food from waffles, omelettes to rice it was all there for you to enjoy. After enjoying one of the most incredible experiences at breakfast we got to explore the Bali Zoo, there was so much to see and do and it was such a fantastic day.
Once we had finished at the zoo we got escorted to Sanctoos Spa, another highlight to our amazement we were overlooking the incredible rainforest of South Ubud with an incredible large waterfall in sight. We got to relax for a tradition 60 minute balinese massage were we were calmed with the sound of rain and the waterfall. The staff were super kind and we had such a lovely experience it is definitely something you can’t pass up. They also have ‘happy hour’ were for a 30 minute massage it is only 100,000 Indonesian rupiah ($10 AUD) an offer you can’t say no to.
After the massage we were taken to experience a night at the zoo. Were to my surprise the gorgeous orangutang’s were siting on the chair and we were able to spend time with them and get really close and personal compared to breakfast. Sit, play, hold and pat these amazing animals it was seriously an experience you cant write in words and the highlight of my whole trip. See the zoo at night with a private tour without loads of people passing you, see the animals up close and feed the incredibly beautiful elephants. After we were delighted with a 4 course meal which was absolutely delicious, we also had specials guests of a baby crocodile, porcupine and a monkey climbing over our backs. After our special guests we enjoyed desert and a fire dance telling a lovely story which was beautiful to watch.
Overall our experience at the Sanctoo Villas was definitely something we can highly recommend. The experiences are like no other and we couldn't thank them enough for having us as special guests.
