Our team of friendly staff are dedicated to ensuring your optimal relaxation and comfort:
Our Villa Manager, Donna is from Jakarta, but prefers the slower pace of life in Bali. After years as an accountant at Price Waterhouse Coopers in Singapore, she moved to Bali to follow her dream of setting up an organic farm. She and her boyfriend currently sell organic yoghurt at a pop-up stall in Seminyak, and continue to work on the organic farm project. Donna is a wealth of knowledge about most things in Bali, and if there is something she doesn’t know, she will be sure to know someone who does! Donna will be delighted to assist you any time. There is a guest phone in the villa for you to call her for anything you need – questions, advice or activity bookings. We are very privileged to have Donna working with us, and consider her to be part of the Sea Shanty family.
Our live-in staff, Lina and Supri moved to Bali from Bandung in West Java this year, so they could live and work together. Prior to that, Lina was spending much of her time between Bandung and Singapore doing part-time domestic helper work, and she is delighted to finally be settled with her husband in a place they can call home. Multi-skilled in cooking and housekeeping, and trained in Bali as Butlers, we are very fortunate to have them both with us ensure you are well fed, well slept, relaxed and happy. They will even give you some lessons in their language (Bahasa Indonesia) if you ask them. Lina and Supri will be delighted to assist you in any way they can. They are also the Sea Shanty’s full-time security staff.
Our full-time cleaner, Ketut is around throughout the day to take care of cleaning, laundry, and light gardening duties. A local Balinese, he has spent time working on Cruise Ships, among other hospitality jobs, and is pleased to have his feet firmly on the ground for a while, so he and his wife can plan to have children. He is eager to learn new skills, and we are delighted to have him as part of the Sea Shanty family.
Gardners and Pool Maintenance Staff – we have a regular gardener and also pool maintenance staff who come to the villa once a week.
Driver / tour guide – we have a handful of drivers and tour guides at our fingertips who would be delighted to take you anywhere you want to go. Just 24 hour’s notice is all that is required.
