Inaya Putri Private Pool Villa Review - Bali
Let me start by saying how obsessed I am with Bali and I really can't wait to go back. The island has everything you need and a trip there can be whatever you want it to be. There’s something for everyone whether you’re looking for a relaxing private baecation/honeymoon or a fun activity filled group trip. I will be posting a lot more about Bali as I know it’s a popular travel destination and there’s so much for me to recommend and give advice on.
So, let's talk about accommodation. In Bali you are spoilt for choice. I stayed in three different places but it’s more common for travellers to stay in Villas when visiting, as it’s more affordable than it would be in other parts of the world. The villa I'm reviewing is an exception, as it is on the pricier side.
Location: My first stop was Nusa Dua, which is an area in the southern part of Bali and is known for its beaches. In terms of accommodation, it is more resort orientated. There are a lot of well-known resorts situated close to each other such as the Grand Hyatt and the Marriot. I stayed at INAYA PUTRI for a few days.
Resort Details: Inaya Putri, is a five-star beach resort in an exclusive compound in Nusa Dua. The Resort has three on-site restaurants (Japanese, Western and Indonesian), a three-layered pool, a spa and private access to one of the best beaches in Bali. Nearby the resort, there’s a mall called Bali Collection, with different shops and restaurants. Prices here are higher than the average in Bali due to the location. I don’t recommend shopping for souvenirs here. There’s plenty of daily activities the resort offers such as beach games, yoga and beach volleyball. Let me not pretend I attended but it’s there if you want to.
Other Resort features:
- Free Parking
- Laundry Service
- Airport Transportation
- Western Breakfast Available
Style and Service: From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the reception. We did have to wait a little for our Villa to be ready but they offered us some non-alcoholic drinks by the bar. The lobby is designed as a traditional Balinese rice barn. The resort and villa is a contemporary Balinese style and inspired by Balinese art and Hindu Goddesses. Once the Villa was ready, we were taken by cart to the “Village”, which is where all the villas are. All the staff we interacted with at the resort were amazing, nothing was too much for them to do.
Villa Details: As soon as you step into the villa you’ll see a beautiful outdoor garden area with a private reasonably sized infinity pool which overflows to a longer river styled pool which is shared with the other villas in the resort. The bedroom is a good size including a comfy king-sized bed. There is also a spacious spa-like bathroom which includes two sinks, a bathtub and an open shower area.

- 24 Hours butler service
- Coffesso coffee machine and tea making facilities
- Air conditioning
- Complimentary 6 bottles of water

Downsides to the Villa:
- Far from the rest of the resort: cart or hill walk is required to get to the restaurants, pool and beach area
- Outdoor shower meant the bathroom door had to be closed to prevent mosquitos and bugs coming into the room. You can go to my previous blog post for a mosquito repellent body scrub.
You can get the villa for approx £220 (per night) in low season and approx £300 in high season with breakfast, Wi-Fi and a free mini bar (prices may vary).
