"This opulent villa is hidden away majestically in the atmospheric town of Tanah Lot and boasts a striking emerald green swimming pool surrounded by elegant wooden sun loungers and exotic plants. The bedrooms are shamelessly plush and feature deep bathtubs and outdoor showers so you can wash away the day under a thousand shimmering stars. A talented chef and team of friendly staff make bespoke meals to please even the fussiest of palates – we consisted of a vegan, a gluten ‘intolerant’ dairy hater and an anti sugar occasional health freak (which quite possibly may have been me). The poolside massages we were treated to can only be described as otherworldly and our friendly driver was always on call to take us to various places of interest – make sure you check out the waterfall caves by the Tanah Lot Temple and the spooky ‘ghost hotel’ – mwah ha ha…."

"Seriously impressed... fantastic food, terrific service and all in a stunning villa made for the holiday of a lifetime."

"Had a brilliant time in the Muse : Tanah Lot - great to see a more local less trodden side of Bali in rural Tabanan. There is really no need to leave the villa as the fantastic staff met our every need. The food was amazing and they were able to bring in masseur services as well. We did however take advantage of the chauffeur service and take trips out to a Barong dance, a batik class, and some lovely natural hot springs - all in all we would recommend the Muse Tanah Lot 100%."

"Absolutely 5-star. This villa is the height of luxury, a hidden gem set in a Balinese jungle. Having stayed at the Muse Villa Seminyak in the past, we didn't think we would be able to top it, but the Muse Tanah Lot gives it a run for its money. Completely peaceful and hidden, the villa is massive and luxurious, with an enormous pool in the most beautiful gardens. It's a brilliant place to spend a long weekend, or a fortnight. The food was incredible, and the chef's nasi goreng is an authentic treat we enjoyed pretty much daily. We can't wait to come back!"

"We've been to Bali many times with family and friends. We've stayed in various parts of the island but this time, chose to be away from the crowds but not too remote to take in some nightlife if we wanted to. We never wanted to !
The Muse – Tanah Lot is stunning. It's positioned behind a traditional village and convenient for Tanah Lot Temple. With the inclusion of a choice of drivers amongst the staff, we also took in some attractions and activities in the Ubud area. I love the process of Batik and our driver took a couple of us to Batik workshop where we stayed all day, ate lunch in between being guided through the entire process of Batik making. Starting with our own drawings, to waxing the fabric, painting and then the chemical process at the end. The staff had a few less known activities up their sleeves like this, which was refreshing from the standard touristy ones you see everywhere. If you enjoy playing golf, it's only a few minutes from the villa.
When we arrived we were greeted by friendly, uniformed staff who couldn't have made us more welcome. They were immediately attentive to the young grandchildren and certainly made it easier for us to relax during our stay as they naturally cared for and played with them. The staff are gentle, caring and did their jobs without disturbing us. Yet if we needed something, they would appear!
The bedrooms are huge with big beds and the most comfortable mattress I've slept on in a while. Everything is clean and looks new. The ensuites are bigger than a lot of bedrooms we've stayed in, with fantastic freestanding baths and separate showers. There's even an outdoor bathing area off one of the rooms which has you feeling you are bathing in the jungle!
We couldn't have wished for anything more. From professional spa treatments under the sala to meals so good that we didn't want to go out to restaurants. ( Although we did have lunch in a rice field warung Hijau which was amazing ). This villa is a super find and truly has a feel of paradise as you sit by the mega sized pool against a backdrop of glorious garden surrounded by mango trees. This was an experience, not just a holiday and we couldn't recommend it enough.
Most people return from holiday feeling they need a holiday. We all came back to real life rested and wanting more as soon as possible."
