We stayed in garden villa #4 and enjoyed the private pool and outdoor geothermal Jacuzzi attached to an indoor/outdoor shower. Had it not been for our two spa visits and dinner at Jeff's Cellar we never would have left the villa. The rooms are well appointed, the beds are amazingly comfortable, the bathrooms are ample and beautifully detailed, the staff is attentive, and the spa is excellent. There are some cheesy elements to the resort that contrast with the elegance of the rooms and spa (Jeff's Cellar, meditation cave, BBQ deck are a bit over the top, but fun). A few learnings: Note that outdoor meals in the villas will always be accompanied by monkeys - usually six or more hanging around. They were inquisitive while keeping their distance, but somewhat distracting to those of us unaccustomed to monkeys-as-dinner guests, so we ate inside our villa or in the restaurant the rest of our stay. For drinks outdoors or sunbathing they are nowhere to be found - food is their big driver; Spa services were great - we went to a fancy spa after departing Banjaran and Banjara's masseuses and facialists absolutely held their own; Regarding garden villa location, if you're looking for privacy away from main resort buildings you don't really want to be closer than garden villa 4. #s 1-3 abut the main dining pavilion, pool and larger service pathways for the resort golfcarts. To be clear, I didn't notice a noise problem at all but the scenery (dramatic limestone cliffs, awesome foliage, etc) gets more intense the further back into the property you go. We only saw this on an evening walk and wished our villa was a bit deeper into the resort. That said, our villa was fabulous and lacked for nothing! So we are chalking this up to aspirations for our next visit! Nothing more I could ask for just continue giving the guest the great service that you provide.
