"Amazing Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat at Waterfall Villas"
The Owner Fateh was so helpful when I was planning my trip and the through my entire stay. The food was amazing and so nourishing in. The location is a place of magic and we did yoga most mornings which felt really good.

I usually do not write reviews, but my experience at Waterfall Villas with Fateh, the Host and Owner was beyond expectations. So much respect for Fateh and her vision and care in building this property. She has kept the natural beauty in-tack - and even more special with the architectural design, building materials and furniture from Bali. The food was 5 star vegetarian (most veggie places are boring and tasteless, not here) - each meal is so lovingly prepared with special recipes I would never think of. The balance of flavors are exceptional - really! - This is the place for busy people to unwind and re-balance with the healing waterfalls, local healers and every meal something to look forward to. The rooms are beautiful! Right down to every detail, Waterfall Villas is exceptional. Providing this experience day in and day out is not easy - thank you Fateh for taking your time to make everything so wonderful.

This is my second time staying at the waterfall Villas and it is my absolute favorite getaway place to recharge. I stayed there for six nights and every Vegan meal that was prepared blew my mind. It was extremely nourishing and looked like art. Typically, the food was fresh picked from Fateh (the owner's) garden and all the dishes were inspired from places around the world. Some of the best food that I have ever had. The place is designed based on Feng Shui principles and you feel it. I love how you are in the rainforest next to a Waterfall but in a really comfortable environment. Fateh is AMAZING and a true Healer with a variety of experiences.
If you are looking for an authentic experience look no further.

We went to the Waterfall Villas for five days. Prior to our arrival we communicated with Fateh via email and we also spoke on the phone. She was very attentive to our individual needs and requests, and provided us with great advice with regard to our trip: the airport transfer was pre-arranged, we were advised on a variety of wireless service providers and our room was ready for a wonderful stay. I loved doing yoga with Fateh every morning- our backdrop was a beautiful waterfall. I can't say enough about the staff: everyone from the room service to security were fantastic. A very special thank you for the kitchen staff who attended to our every need and accommodated our meal times around our spa treatments. We greatly enjoyed the massages and facial and body treatments as well as chiropractic experience.
There is no question Fateh has created a paradise that is worth experiencing.
My wife and I stayed in the butterfly room - it was big and awesome. They collected our dirty laundry in the mornings and had it clean and folded by the afternoon! We could hear the waterfall from bed and could enjoy the wildlife of the rain forest from our private balcony. The property is filled with breathtaking spots including waterfalls that can be hiked, mountain trails, and a deck for yoga classes. We paid extra for the on site dinner each night and it was better than we could have imagined. We basically had a private chef and server while we enjoyed the ambience of the candles, waterfall, and incense. The staff and owners were always calm, smiling, and helpful. We did lose electricity (along with the rest of the town) for a few hours during a storm, so make sure that you bring a flashlight. We can't wait to visit again!
