"Excellent stay and hospitality"
The design of the reception and the restaurant is quite unique and beautiful.
All their staff are very friendly and helpful.
I love their villas as they only have 7 units in total, so it is not crowded and noisy, we can enjoy more our personal time and high privacy is provided.

"dreaming in dreamland."
We stayed in a 3-bedroom villa for 3 days/2 nights in late June. We arrived late, as our boat from Gili Trawangan was delayed, but the staff went out of their way to answer our million questions, make sure we could get a bite to eat and show us around our villa before settling in for the evening. We had just spent 4 days in Gili T in a beautiful villa, so we prepared ourselves to have something of the same quality or less, but upon walking into our villa, we realized we definitely had an upgrade. Because of the comfort and luxury of our villa, we scrapped our plans to sightsee and stayed in our villa.
The staff truly went out of their way to make sure our stay was nothing short of exceptional. Room service was always delivered in a timely manner and everything we tried on the menu was delicious. We even requested an order of 20 Bintangs to enjoy poolside, and they came with the beers and an ice bucket so we could enjoy it outside. My friends and I kept saying what really made the Mahagiri Villas stand out was the outstanding, friendly and warm staff--they really made us feel at home and no request was too much.
We stayed at Mahagiri for 11 days in June 2014 and those days turned to be perfect holidays for us !
The main virtues of Mahagiri resort are luxury facilities and its outstanding Staff.
We were located in one bedroom villa (no 105). It was really beautiful and spacious. When we entered it first time, it looked to us even better than on the impressing pictures seen before. Large private pool and living room open to the private yard were very impressive and arranged with good taste. The greenery next to the pool (huge leafs) added some tropical touch. The bedroom was also spacious and equipped with comfortable king size bed. We liked a lot the shower in the open air next to the pool with easy access from the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped which allows cooking. Why would you do that though considering that the food at the resort is of very good taste and quality and rather inexpensive... For those who would like to check other options there is a nice little "warung" just some 3-5 minutes of lazy walk away from the hotel.
All in all facilities Mahagiri offers are luxurious and well maintained (housekeeping and room service are of primary quality)
The other factor that defines the highest quality of this resort is its Staff. We have never met at any other resort people who would be to that extent helpful, forthcoming, respectful and yet able to create so nice relaxed and friendly atmosphere. These are not just kind words , but I really mean it. People who we started to know as hotel staff have soon become to us far more than that. We would like to thank Keriana, Kana, Adi, Susila, Sudiana and all their colleagues whose names I have just missed for their involvement and all the little and big efforts they made to make our stay at Mahagiri so pleasant.
The resort is located in a bit remote neighborhood, but it does not have to be considered negative. It is perfect for romantic stay, it is within walking distance to a few shops (including grocery and the "warung" mentioned before). Mahagiri also offers free of charge transportation to one of the best beaches in Bali – Dreamland Beach. It is just ~10 minutes away by car and offers nice sand, big waves and limited crowds. It is a lot of fun to play in the waves there, but remain cautious as those waves can be dangerous. The reception at Mahagiri (especially Keriana) is able to arrange any tour you would like to have. It is also worthwhile to listen to their advice in those matters.
I also share the thoughts of rickystubbs expressed in his comment below. I have very similar perception of various details he described in his review and I have also experienced similar beautiful moments at Mahagiri, such as 'romantic dinner', spa, talks to the staff etc
Overall Mahagiri gave me one of my best vacations and I would be happy to return there some day and would definitely recommend it to other couples and families.
"Personable Service Found"
We stayed here for 2 nights in early June. Uluwatu generally has high end (expensive) hotels or the cheap 3 star or less stays, so it was lovely to find this villa hideaway which offers premium villas at a reasonable price. There are just 15 villas here all equipped with the modern features from home and a large plunge pool. If you are after a quiet spot to relax, and still want to be close to Uluwatu's coast line (10-15 mins drive by cab) then this is the best spot to stay. The staff here at the villas were by far the friendliest eager to please engaging service staff we experienced in Bali. Highly recommend!!
Room Tip: They have villas for couples, singles or families.

"Great place to really unwind and chillax."
Me and my wife stayed here last week and it definitely is one of the nicest accommodating villas we have been to in Bali. Because it has recently been built, everything is spotless. We booked in to stay in the one bedroom villa but where instantly upgraded to the 3 bedroom villa! Impressive!! This place has got it all! 3 toilets, 2 outdoor showers, daybed, private pool, kitchen, large fridge........ Everything one needs to put you in the mood...... The staff are extremely polite and helpful, the kitchen at the restaurant is very good! I mean it! It was very good! Day spa is great and the tours and shuttle service prompt and on time. They will organise bookings on your behalf anytime and free airport transfers. We took the Veganza package which included free dinner, 2 hour spa treatment of your choice, free afternoon tea daily, and airport transfers. Well worth it's price! A special thanks goes to the reception staff, our driver Gutra, and of course Alit. He will make you laugh and cheer you up! Thanks Mahagiri for making our trip wonderful!

"Shhh, keep this gem a secret ;)"
What a GREAT VILLA! I don't want to write a review because I'd rather it stay our little secret - great value for money!!
My husband and I stayed in a One Bedroom Villa for 10 nights as a celebration for his 40th birthday (I also had my birthday while we were there).
All of the staff were excellent and wanting to accommodate all of our needs. The staff along with my husband plotted a beautiful suprise for my birthday - what more could a girl ask for! Make sure you let staff know if you're there for something special and they can arrange a great suprise for you too.
They also have available many day trips, car rental, sightseeing tours. But I never wanted to leave! Because there's a mini kitchen and great big fridge I recommend heading out to one of the bigger supermarkets, like Hypermart or Carrefour and stocking up so you can feed yourself and drink cocktails by the side of the pool. (You can also buy alcohol from the bigger supermarkets).
Don't want to head to the shops or be bothered with making lunch - then the room service menu is good value and the meals are good (I was a fan of the pizza)! Or there's a great warung on the corner as you turn into Mahagiri's street. Made's Warung has a HUGE selection of different meals with loads of great healthy vegie dishes - plus it's really cheap. They also do takeway which you could bring back to your villa if all their tables are full :)
The rooms were very clean and spacious. The pool was also very clean. My only complaint - we couldn't stay longer ;)
This is a perfect holiday for those wanting to really relax. It's very private, very quiet, and extremely relaxing! Even though each villa is next door, we never heard anybody else (& the place was full).
I was also very impressed by having a water galon available instead of buying bottled water. Great way to look after the environment!!
Thank you Mahagiri Dreamland for an unforgetable, unbelievably relaxing holiday :)
