It took a little longer than planned for us to finally settle on the layout, materials and pallet for the renovation of the ground floor en-suite noted in our last post, but we are very confident that it was well worth it as it will transform the space. Before we left Villa Abadi after our last visit we had commenced all of the major tasks we had planned plus a few others we hadn't and are pleased to note that they are all well underway. We're heading back to the villa for a few days at the end of the month to carry out final checks and will post a further update and include some new pictures shortly after we return.
We've had a great start to the 2014 season with a very healthy number of inquiries received, several new confirmed bookings and others likely to confirm over the next few weeks. The special offer we have running through our FlipKey listing of 1 free night for any stay of 5 nights or longer is prooving popular - not too surprising as it is worth up to US$370! We would note that our best prices are always through our FlipKey listing or directly through "Contact Us" on this site.
We've added additional restaurant reviews to our FAQ's page - Prana and Warisan, both restaurants that we have been to a number of times, so we've now included reviews, maps and clickable links to their web pages.
In the last few days we have received our 16th FlipKey review which, as with all our reveiws, we are very proud of the kind comments that Adam from KL made. What makes this particular review a little more special is that in less than 2 years we now have had 2 seperate sets of repeat guests. The review can be viewed here or on our Flipkey listing.
Finally, Villa Abadi now has it's own Twitter, Facebook and Flickr accounts which can be accessed from the top right hand corner of all of our website pages. We will be using our Twitter account to distribute news, updates and special offers at Villa Abadi, but also to share a wide selection of Bali centric travel information from tourist info, destinations & news to restaurant and event updates. We're particularly pleased with the Flickr account as the villa photos look absolutely great in the much larger format - well worth taking a look.
