(js2003au - Sydney) March 30,2008
My husband and I stayed at the beautiful Villa Jerami for four nights in early March. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We arrived late night and asked if they knew a vegetarian restaurant nearby. They provided us with a car and a driver to take us to an Indian restaurant and brought us back. as well Seminyak is about 20 minutes from Kuta and we ended up hiring a scooter and driving to Kuta and back every day. Be wary of air conditioned taxis who may charge more than twice as much they charge the locals. The villa itself is immaculately maintained. We stayed in a one bedroom villa and had our own swimming pool, living room and kitchen/dining. Their spa deals are certainly worth a try and quite reasonably priced as well. They were unable to provide us with a late check out on the day, but when we returned to the villa for the airport drop off, they graciously offered us a viila to freshen up which was a very generous gesture. Check out the Queen Tandoor (or Tandoor Queen perhaps) which is an Indian restaurant about 5 minute walk from the Villa. Really great food (spicy but not hot). There is also a O India Restaurant on the highway with which we were quite impressed. Not many Balinese food choices to appeal to the vegetarian palate, but there are a few good Indian restaurants around. Villa Jerami - highly recommended !
