WING YUEN LOON– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
December 24, 2016
My family had a lovely 8 day stay at the villa. The villa was luxuriously appointed and we spent quite a bit of time in the villa itself, enjoying the place and just relaxing. And the villa staff of 4 was just first class, taking care of every need and more.

The villa is great for a laid back family holiday . The cook Mary is exceptional. I have no complaints. We were on a family holiday with the youngest being 5 and the oldest 81 and all of us had an exceptional time . This is a great villa to chill and enjoy the ocean at your door step with dolphin watching.

FAMILY HANSEN– VILLA BUNDAR
December 8, 2016
We just left Lovina and had a good time. The housekeeper Ketut is just amazing. She organised all trips for us and cooked delicious meals. The villa is right at the beach-but if you are looking for a dream beach, you are wrong in the north of Bali. Unfortunately the beaches are dirty. But the villa is very very clean and has a nice pool to swim in. We would totally recommend to go snorkeling-that was just amazing to see the colourful fish and corals.

Kandek, Nasek, Erik and all the other staff truly did everything they could to make our stay simply perfect! The house is as pictured and our host was so helpful sending a manual ahead of time with things to do, prices and how to set up…..we really had an absolutely lovely stay! Anyone that stays here MUST have a massage by Rhea from the spa down the street as they come to you and make sure to note all of the restaurants that will deliver to the villa! The Lovina Bakery was also an amazing gem! We really loved the beautiful people of Bali, the weather, the island, the sights, the monkeys….but most of all……the people. No place on earth has such respectful, kind, loving, warm souls, they truly are a loving and amazing people. They also allow you to make great bargains at the markets! Shopping for the hand carved woodwork, the hand painted Batik fabric/sarongs or the Ecot hand woven fabrics and so many beautiful things on Bali! OH….and the surprisingly delicious Lowak Coffee! Who knew a mongoose could make such a great cup of coffee? Thank you for a perfectly wonderful holiday! Erik, our driver, TRULY made this holiday ONE TO REMEMBER! Cannot Thank you enough for all the little out of the way places you took us to which we were not expecting to go but ended up being amazed and surprised! We made a friend for sure!

We hebben meer dan genoten in de prachtige villa Buka Kecil. Heerlijk gelegen aan het strand, een prachtige tuin met zwembad en het huis is een plaatje. Enkelen van ons waanden zich in een film…..!!! Het personeel is erg vriendelijk en heeft zo enorm lekker voor ons gekookt. Wat een luxe!! Het bootje om de dolfijnen te spotten haalden enkelen van ons voor de villa op en die kwamen zo enthousiast terug. Ze hadden heeel veeel dolfijnen gezien. In deze prachtige omgeving kwamen we volledig tot rust.
Volgende keer maar wat langer naar het noorden.
FAMILIE DE HOOG– VILLA CANTIK
November 18, 2016
Wat een heerlijke week hebben wij -gezin met twee jonge kinderen- doorgebracht in de prachtige villa Cantik, die van alle gemakken voorzien is! Zeer kindvriendelijk ook, met twee kinderbedjes en kinderstoelen en een maxicosi beschikbaar. De tuin en het uitzicht waren echt om bij weg te dromen. Ook Desa en Ketut waren ontzettend gastvrij en behulpzaam. En dol op de kinderen! Ze hebben zelfs een keer op willen oppassen toen wij dolfijnen zijn gaan spotten op zee. We zijn enorm verwend met elke dag de lekkerste Balinese gerechten van Desa en Ketut. Daar hoef je de deur niet voor uit! Kortom, een plek die we echt aanraden (zeker ook voor jonge gezinnen) en als het even kan absoluut nog eens terugkeren.

FAMILY HEATH– VILLA BUKA KECIL
November 9, 2016
“Huge villa, lovely grounds and staff, great location – excellent holiday”
The north of Bali is a bit of a trek from the airport, but it’s far less touristy as a result. With the sea (gently sloping beach, hardly any waves) at the bottom of the garden, and friendly staff to cook breakfast and another meal each day, this was our idea of an affordable, convenient and relaxing week’s break. We had planned to drive from the airport, and use the car throughout our stay, but the hire car didn’t materialise. On reflection, it was a long and quite difficult drive at night to the villa, so we’d recommend arranging your cab from theairport through the villa owner (Angelique), as well as using the local driver for trips and meals out. Not the end of the island for hot nightlife – we loved it!

ADAM RUSIEWICZ– VILLA BUNDAR
November 2, 2016
My wife and I went here for our honeymoon. We had a wonderful experience at Angelique’s Villa. The staff who helped take care of us were so helpful and kind. We really enjoyed our time there, it was so relaxing being next to the water and the private pool is a huge bonus! The beaches in North Bali aren’t very nice, but they are fun to walk down. So it was nice to have a pool to swim in!

Beautiful Villa! Garden and pool area are well kept and all rooms are clean and comfortable. The stuff was really nice and helpful and made us feel welcome and comfortable. The Villa had nice atmosphere, during the day you could enjoy the pool and sun and during the night you could sit in the candlelight and listen the sound of waves. Everything was just perfect!

“Upon arrival we were very warmly welcomed by the staff and they did make us feel home immediately. The villa is amazing, luxurious and the view is really superb. We loved to relax at the pool after the day trips, watch the sunsets and indulge in home cooked food. We loved the whole arrangement, with staff, cooking for us and still enjoying some privacy. The massages were great. ”Will come again!”

“The most relaxing villa”
This was our third visit to Villa Bundar and our most relaxing holiday to-date. The villa is ideally placed on the beach, has a lovely salt water pool and is a 30 metre walk to the spa for some seriously wonderful massages. The staff are friendly, polite and really do want their guests to enjoy their stay. Nothing is too much trouble and really enhance the relaxed vibe. We love Balinese cuisine especially the many wonderful meals prepared by Ketut who looked after us during our stay. It’s really difficult to find any faults with the villa, location and staff. If you are after a relaxing holiday that’s away from the crowds in Kuta and Seminyak, Villa Bundar is close to perfect.😀

FAMILIE NEDERSTIGT – VILLA CANTIK
Oktober 6, 2016
Wat een vakantie! En nagenieten doen we eigenlijk nog elk moment van de dag. Dit land heeft grote indruk op ons gezin (kinderen 17-15-12) gemaakt, door de natuur natuurlijk maar ook door de vriendelijkheid van de mensen. De villa Cantik was prima en de staf ook. Desa en Ketut hebben ons goed verzorgd en Eddy en de bewaking waren ook vriendelijk en zorgzaam.
We hebben veel gezien en zijn laatste paar dagen nog verhuisd naar Ubud om daar te raften, fietsen en de zoo te zien.

FAMILIE HURKMANS – VILLA BUNGA
Oktober 4, 2016
Het was echt super in de villa. Iedereen was zo aardig en behulpzaam. Het eten wat gemaakt werd was overheerlijk. Het is een luxe om je keuze te maken en het dan vers voor je gemaakt wordt. Maar één keer uit eten geweest die week om het diner in de villa maar niet te missen. Putu de chauffeur heeft ons mooie plekken laten zien en verteld onderweg ook veel. Hij is erg gezellig en aardig. Het is echt een aanrader om wat dagen met hem op pad te gaan.
De dolfijnen spotten is wel iets wat je gedaan moet hebben. Wat handig blijkt is je om 5.30 uur op te laten halen voor de villa en dan als eerste de zee opgaat. Zo konden wij de dolfijnen van dichtbij zien zonder de 100 andere boten om je heen te hebben.
Het strand is een oase van rust. Leuk is wel dat in het weekend de lokale mensen op het strand komen en dat is erg gezellig. Iedereen zegt je gedag, een relaxte sfeer.
Het was eigenlijk meer dan wat we ervan verwacht hadden. We komen zeker nog een keer terug.
FAMILIE ADMIRAAL– VILLA CANTIK
October 1, 2016
Wij verbleven 8 dagen met z’n vieren (ouders met twee kinderen van 17 en 20) in villa Cantik. De foto’s van de website verbleken bij de werkelijkheid, een droomverblijf en wat een ruimte! De vele zitjes in de mooie tuin met het heerlijke zwembad; de prachtige, ruime slaap- en badkamers; de speelzolder, waar menig potje tafeltennis is gespeeld; de heerlijke maaltijden die voor ons gemaakt werden door de vriendelijke, altijd lachende Dessa en Ketut en niet te vergeten de welkomstmassage, het was super!
Mochten we ooit nog een keer op vakantie gaan naar Bali, zullen we zeker weer een strandvilla boeken.

“Villa set in paradise!”
Our stay at the Villa Mango Trees was absolute heaven! The site of the Villa is idyllic and the views from the main rooms is truly amazing. The Villa is much bigger than we had imagined and it allowed us and our friends to have plenty of room. The free Wi-Fi was fantastic and certainly kept our teenagers happy! 🙂 The staff were friendly, helpful and super knowledgeable. The accommodation was very luxurious and much better than the photo’s – we were all blown away! Would highly recommend this Villa and the area and would definitely return….great hassle free, relaxing holiday.

Villa Bersama was absolutely wonderful. Not only was the property beautiful but Ketut and Kadek who cooked and cleaned for us were so sweet and so fun and thoughtful and Gede the gardener is a wonderful sweet man. They always made us feel so welcomed and wanted to do anything they could to make things nicer for us. When we wanted to go on an outing they called a driver for us and coordinated everything. The pool was absolutely wonderful overlooking the ocean. The beds were comfortable as well. We enjoyed eating outside every day. Wonderful magical place…would recommend it!

We loved the villa and wished we had more time. The staff, space, view and the pool were fabulous. There was a lot of debris on the beach which was sad to see, but it was obvious larger items were picked up and removed daily. Hope to be able to visit again!

“Tolle Villa mit tollem Blick”
Schöne Villa mit sehr gepflegtem Garten und einem fantastischen Blick nach Norden auf den indischen Ozean. Schön zu sehen auch der Sonnenuntergang vom am Strand gelegenen Pavillion – allerdings hier auch der ziemlich vermüllte Strand (generelles Baliproblem) zu sehen. Das Personal war nett und hat uns mit einfachen Dienstleistungen den Aufenthalt angenehm gestaltet. Transfer vom Flughafen war perfekt organisiert. Auch sonst war uns der Fahrer auf den Ausflügen immer eine sehr nette Begleitung und hat sich viel um uns gekümmert und uns zu allem informiert.

“Wow!What a beautiful place”
We (2 adults and 3 children) enjoyed our stay at the villa Mango Trees.The kids prefered the big swimming pool and we liked the relaxing places around the pool:very ideal to enjoy your massage (Putu and Ilhu can arrange for an appointment).But the kids were also proued to have each one of them a bedroom on their own with an outdoor bathroom;very luxurious.Komang was taking care of the swimming pool and the lovely garden and Made as the security garde was taking care of us during the night (he took us with his boat on a dolphin tour).Putu and Ilhu create nice meals (breakfast lunch and dinner).If you want to eat elsewhere no problem: there are a view nice restaurants in the area with normally free shuttle service and when the stuff is having a day off (normally on sundays) you can also order at home.The villa has a nice view, is near the beach.On our first trip to Bali we felt wellcomed and we were lucky to have such nice stuff so that we had no stress during our holidays.Maybe we see you again:Villa Mango Trees!

Best holiday ever *****
As far as we can tell, there is no better place to stay when visiting Bali: the luxurious villa is accommodated to perfection. Even while traveling with young kids, Villa Sali will live up to all your needs. Not in the last place thanks to the unlimited hospitality of Iluh and Sayu, who made sure we had the best holiday ever. From the shuttle service when we arrived late at night, to the amazing cooking skills that are developed to perfection: we feel lucky to have experienced such a great stay this summer. The extensive standard menu could also be adjusted whenever we would have a request to taste something that was not listed! The ladies arranged everything we could possibly desire: watching dolphins early in the morning, day trips to go snorkling or visit places all over Bali, massages in the afternoon, going out for a dinner on Sunday evening: they managed it all. In addition to Iluh and Sayu, the staff is completed by an own security guard Dedi (who introduced himself the first night, greeted us every night though kept his distance to “keep out of the way”… we spoiled him a bit too by serving him a drink at the beginning of his night shift 😉 ) and the gardener Agus who stole our heart by picking fresh coconuts out of the palm trees so we had the freshest coconut juice ever! His effort to preserve the garden as the ultimate paradise is much appreciated. The only bad thing is to say goodbye on the last day, we felt sad and some tears were dropped. Not just by us, as well as by the staff: in three weeks, friendship grew and we did not want to say goodbye. That’s why we only said “see you next time”, as we intend to visit Villa Sali again. Words cannot describe what we experienced yet all of the posts here on TripAdvisor seem to have a common storyline: high rating, unlimited hospitality and for sure a highly recommendable accommodation *****

“Comfortable villa with amazing garden and pool”
We stayed with 6 people in this amazing villa with outdoor seating and kitchen. There is a large tropical well maintained garden including swimmingpool and waterfall next to the beach. Staff is very friendly and helpfull wit cooking, washing and cleaning up. There is a lot of privacy with different warungs and shady spots in the garden. The large master bedroom is upstairs and the other three bedrooms downstairs. You need a driver to explore the beautifull area. Ask for Ketut. We Had a great stay with our family.

Na een intensieve reis op Java verheugden we ons op een paar dagen heerlijk niets doen in Lovina. Dat was niet moeilijk in Villa Bundar! Wat een heerlijk huis: van alle gemakken voorzien, een fijne tuin met zwembad, met uitzicht op de zee! Ketut, Putu en Eddy hebben heel goed voor ons gezorgd! Wat een luxe; de boodschappen werden voor ons gedaan en er werd heerlijk voor ons gekookt! Alle lof voor Ketut en Putu!
We hebben erg genoten in Villa Bundar en komen dan ook heel graag nog een keer terug!

Villa Sali is one of the best and most comfortable vacation homes we have ever stayed at. The staff were superb. The villa and the garden are well kept and the ladies cooked excellent Indonesian food. The beautiful pool is large and has perfect temperature. Our best day trip was to go to the beautiful island Menjangan for diving and snorkelling. Wow how many tropical fishes there are! We had a perfect stay and would recommend Villa Sali to anyone heading to North Bali.
FAMILIE VAN STEEN – VILLA BUNGA
August 22, 2016
Deze zomer verbleven we 3 weken in Villa Bunga. Samen met onze twee kinderen (12 en 14) was het van begin tot eind een supervakantie. Om de dag lekker relaxen bij de villa en dan een dagje erop uit. Iedere morgen begon met genieten van het prachtige uitzicht over zee, geluid van de golven en natuurlijk met een lekker ontbijt klaargemaakt door Duwi en Kadek. Op de dagen bij de villa zorgden zij en het andere personeel ervoor dat het je aan niets ontbrak. Vooral het heerlijke eten maar ook de vriendelijke en servicegerichte houding – van tuinman tot bewaking – was fantastisch. De villa heeft een prachtige tuin en een lekker zwembad. De villa is mooi ingericht en zeer schoon. Wel in tegenstelling tot het strand en zee voor de villa; hoewel het strand iedere ochtend voor onze villa werd schoongemaakt, hebben we er door het vuile water niet veel in zee gezwommen. Maar door het lekkere zwembad was dat ook weer niet zo erg. Op het eiland hebben we van alles gedaan. Zoals gesnorkeld (tip: Reef Seen, daar rij je in een klein uurtje naartoe en je kunt er zo vanaf het strand de zee inlopen en snorkelen), we hebben een paar watervallen en tempels bezocht, dolfijnen gespot (direct voor de villa de zee op), een dagje naar het waterbompark gecombineerd met eten op het strand op Jimbaran Bay en genoten van de mooie zonsondergang en nog veel meer. Bijna alle tripjes deden we met dezelfde taxichauffeur. Hij wist van alles te vertellen, had goede tips en was dus meteen een soort gids zodat de (vaak toch lange) ritjes allerminst saai waren (tip: zorg voor een goed Engels sprekende taxichauffeur). Samengevat: een prachtige vakantie om nooit te vergeten!

“Heaven on earth in “The Mango Trees”
We stayed 14 days in Villa The mango Trees , Lovina Bali last july with our two grown up children and their girl/boyfriend. The stay was a complete success! The villa is spacious, has all the comfort you can hope for and very well situated. The staff is amazing! Putu and Ilu are two lovely women who cook great food and are always there to help you with whatever you need or want. They have arranged for us motorbikes, the dolphin trip with Made (who is also the security guy for the villa) and are invisibly present! Thanks ladies. Koman the gardener and pool boy is a quit sweet guy who takes care of the garden and swimming pool and made with us a volleyball net in the pool! We were sad to leave these lovely people! The north of Bali is less crowded and offers good opportunities for various trips. Do not miss the Aling Aling and Sekumpul waterfalls, less known than Git Git but more pleasant. Certainly do not miss a tracking experience in the rice fields with Mayong tracking by Putu Artan, a fantastic way to experience balinese life.If you plan to say in the lovina area the “villa the mango trees “is the place to be! One (small) detail: the beach is not always very clean!

We hebben hier 4 heerlijke dagen doorgebracht met onze 3 dochters (9,7 en 4). We hebben genoten van het heerlijke eten van de hulp Ketut, het uitzicht op zee en het zwembad. Het huis ligt op een parkje op een paar km van Lovina. De chaffeur brengt je in een paar minuten overal naar toe. In de omgeving zijn er veel bezienswaardigheden en activiteiten. Dolfijnen kijken met de lokale visser vonden wij erg leuk.

The house was absolutely great, beyond our expectations and the swimming pool was the real added value ! The personnel more than helpful and very friendly. The communication with the owners was fantastic, all the info they gave us on beforehand was very valuable… the restaurant addresses were the best we had….. We all had a great time !

We hebben ontzettend genoten van ons verblijf op Bali. Villa Cantik is prachtig, de omgeving heel mooi en het personeel heel aardig. Ze stonden altijd voor je klaar. Mede daardoor is het een onvergetelijke vakantie geworden. We hebben diverse uitstapjes gedaan: boeddhistisch klooster, waterval, dolfijnen gespot en gesnorkeld. Ook de wandeling door de rijstvelden olv een gids is een aanrader.

“Come here…you won’t regret it!!”
Villa Pantai is an absolutely fantastic place. It has a great location with direct access on the beach, a wonderful pool and beautiful gardens. The villa itself is fitted with very modern conveniences. The kitchen is brand new and is fully equipped with the most modern appliances. All four bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. These are also brand-new and are very stylish. One bathroom is outdoors, in a little enclosure that guarantees privacy but at the same time allows you to shower outside, in the wonderful tropical weather. I loved this! All bathrooms are furnished with plenty of towels. Air conditioning is provided in all bedrooms. These worked very well, cooling the rooms when required within only few minutes. Large ceiling fan are provided in the living area and in the patio outside. The pool and gardens were stunning, exceptionally well kept by the gardener Kadek! Security was provided as part of the rental price. We had your own private guard during the night, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. The villa manager and cook, Made, is a wonderful person and a fantastic cook. She made us many great meals and helped us a lot with tips and advice about the surroundings. She even organised a wonderful birthday party for our daughter, who happened to turn 12 during our stay there. The villa has a very comprehensive guide which is sent to you as PDF after booking, with lots of tips about the villa itself and the surroundings (restaurants, things to do, places to visit, etc.). You can clearly see that the owners care about the place and its visitors. I would also like to mention the local tour organiser Gede Nova (Bintang Dewata tourist information service). He was truly excellent, very friendly and always at our disposal to arrange punctual transport for us (even on very short notice). His phone number is provided on the villa guide. We will never forget our stay at Villa Pantai and strongly recommend it to everyone who comes to Bali.

Villa Buka Kecil: wat een geweldig plek om te verblijven. We hebben hier ontzettend genoten; niet alleen van de omgeving maar ook van het vriendelijke personeel. De chauffeur Jaya heeft ons veel mooie plekken van Bali laten zien en niets was hem teveel. Menjangan Island is een trip om echt aan te raden, echt heel erg mooi. Met het personeel kon je afspreken op welke tijden je wilde eten, dat is erg handig als je bijvoorbeeld een lange trip gepland hebt die dag en wat later “thuis” komt. Uit het woord “thuis” kun je opmaken hoe we ons gevoeld hebben deze vakantie.

DAVID SWAN – VILLA BERSAMA
July 16, 2016
We were greeted by the very friendly staff on our arrival, shown around the house and given a very welcome drink! Our journey to the house started from Ubud and the drive involved some amazing windy roads. The scenery was of course amazing. The house was exactly as we had expected. The only exception being that a recent storm had damaged the steps from the garden to the beach and also the sand of the beech had seemed to migrate to one side. As a result, access to the beach during our stay was a very short walk past the two neighbouring houses. The location is also very nice, perfect for relaxing but if you want to dine out it is a taxi ride away. We did a number of trips including a dolphin watching boat trip. We were picked up from the beach next to the house and say a huge number of dolphins…..this is a trip not to miss. The staff were good and are able to prepare all your meals. They don’t work late though so if you want lunch and dinner cooked for you, you will have to reheat in the microwave. We were traveling with our kids aged 4 & 6 and they loved the house, pool, garden and play house. We would definitely recommend this property for those looking for a relaxing stay.

Overall the entire experience was just wonderful. Starting from the constant communication leading up to our stay by Angelique via email and sms through to the friendly and calming service given to us by the house maids (Putu and ILuh) as well as the gardener (Komag) and the security man (Made). Putu and ILuh were so polite and always had a smile on their face, whatever we asked was never a problem, they made phone calls to various people for us to organise things (restaurants, yoga class, snorkelling, drivers, food shopping etc) through to even attempting to cook dishes which we had requested but they had the never cooked before, nothing was too much trouble for them. Their dinners were unbelievably delicious and we were able to eat traditional Balinese food for very little cost. The villa itself was just as the website showed, the location was amazing, the house was super clean (thanks to Putu and ILuh), the facilities were spot on, overall our holiday could not have been better.

Wij hebben een super week gehad in Villa Bundar en werden daar eigenlijk steeds luier dus dat zegt genoeg.
Voor ons was het een paradijsje met alles erop en eraan zelfs met het dolfijnen spotten werden we voor de deur met de boot opgehaald.
Ketut is een schat en kookt voortreffelijk we zijn eigenlijk maar een keer uit eten geweest !! zelfs de was werd voor ons gedaan al hadden wij daar wel wat moeite mee want dit zouden we zelf wel doen, niet dus.
Wij kunnen villa Bundar zeker aanraden met een heerlijk zwembad en een warme zee voor de deur!

“Your own private Resort”
Villa Pantai is absolutely delightful. Your own private resort with beachfront access. Relaxing by the pool during the day, reading a great book and hearing the gentle roll of the waves in a picturesque landscape is definitely my idea of a relaxing island holiday. The Villa itself is fitted with very modern conveniences. Bathrooms are all brand new and sparkling clean. Air conditioning in bedrooms and large ceiling fan in living area. Lovely timber dining table under verandah where our delicious meals were served daily by Made. At another reviewer’s suggestion we stocked up on drinks and snacks at the large supermarket in Singaraja (approx.. 20km) from Villa as there is nothing in walking distance to replenish supplies. The beach is not very clean here and we didn’t swim in the ocean, however, you couldn’t see rubbish and debris from villa as the small wall from villa to beach blocked view of rubbish and all you could see was the water. Just beautiful. In summary, if it’s an island holiday that you want, but you don’t enjoy the hustle and bustle of south Bali, then you must come to the North. We have been in Seminyak for two weeks, which we love, and now seven days on our first trip to Lovina. We are back in Bali in March and will most definitely be heading straight to Villa Pantai. Thanks you to all of the staff.

“verwennerij op toplocatie, dit is ontspannen!”
Twee weken hebben we genoten van een schitterende villa, haar tuin en het personeel onder leiding van Made. Geweldig! Voor de eerste keer huurden we een huis met personeel, en dat is vooraf toch een beetje spannend. Maar in Villa Pantai loopt, zo blijkt, alles op rolletjes, met een glimlach en bijna heb je niet in de gaten dat het personeel druk in de weer is om je optimaal te laten genieten. We hebben Made de keuzes voor het eten laten maken, want als er iemand verstand heeft van lekker eten is zij het! Elke dag weer nieuwe verrassingen met ladingen vers fruit. S’morgens vroeg zo uit bed even het strand op lopen om de zon te zien opkomen en het idee te hebben dat je de enige toerist bent op heel Bali. We zullen er nog vaak aan terug denken. Heerlijk onthaast denkend aan de professionele maar vooral lieve staf van Villa Pantai krijgen we heimwee en zie ik ons nog wel eens terugkomen. Dank voor deze meer dan geweldige vakantie!

FAMILIE VALKIS– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
June 18, 2016
Met totaal 8 volwassen verbleven wij 6 dagen in Villa The Mango Trees. De villa heeft zeer zeker de wow factor. Rustige ligging, waardoor geen winkels of restaurantjes op loopafstand. Echter het personeel in de villa kookt heerlijk, regelen vervoer en de excursies. Verder is het grote zwembad met uitzicht op zee een genot. Kortom, een aanrader voor degene die rust, luxe en goede service zoekt.

FAMILY GASPARINI – VILLA SALI
June 15, 2016
“Paradise in North Bali!”
The owner – Angelique was a dream to deal with in booking the accommodation. She provided all required info via email, directions etc for us to plan our trip. Thanks very much Angelique. Travel – The villa is approximately 3 1/2 hours from the airport. You cross several mountains / ranges to get there. It is very slow going due to the roads, traffic (like getting stuck behind trucks), steep inclines / declines etc. The time it takes to get there is well worth it though! The villa – As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by the amazing staff. The trip got off to a fantastic start by their warm welcome. Once we walked through the villa and saw that amazing infinity pool and view straight out to the ocean…..well WOW!
The villa is clean, functional and we had everything we needed for our young family and the in-laws that came along for the trip too. The beds are huge and comfortable. The en suites are nice too. The kitchen is large and there is everything there required for a stay. The real winners are; the outdoor setting, table outside where we ate all our meals, the banana lounges, day bed and pool – everything outside that looks out at that amazing view! The staff – Iluh runs the show and thank goodness she is there. She was amazing. Good with the kids. Nothing was too much trouble to make / get. Everything was managed with little fuss. We planned ahead for our meals where we gave Iluh money for the shopping and then she would return with an itemised bill with change. The meals that were then prepared were amazing. A good selection and cooked to perfection each time. Angelique is very lucky to have Iluh on board. Sayu was also fantastic and attended to all our needs. We mainly dealt with Iluh as her English is better, but there were certainly no issues when Iluh wasn’t around either. Sayu even offered to work on the Sunday that we were there (the staff are usually off due to their celebrations). Sayu made all our meals, tea / coffee or whatever snacks the kids wanted – the ladies were perfect.
Agus was perfect also. Most of the time you didn’t even know he was there, but there he was cleaning up the yard every day in the heat, trimming trees, mowing etc. He was friendly and had a joke with the kids too. All in all, the staff were amazing and added to our awesome experience at this oasis. Recommendations – Bakery Lovina has some beautiful food and their bread is delicious too. Iluh even picked up fresh bread for us from there in the morning on the way to work! The Spice Beach Club (SBC) was amazing for dinner. Beautiful food, great setting on the beach for a sunset and the band comes on at 7:30 p.m. which the kids loved. The bonus with the SBC is the free shuttle to/from the villa. We also got the ladies from Cambodia spa to attend the villa twice for massages, hair braiding for the girls. Iluh organised this for us. The prices were good and their service was very good.
Iluh arranged for a boat to pick us up from the beach directly out the back of the villa to go and see the dolphins – which was worth it. A long trek on our day to see the pods but the kids loved it. Just ensure there are enough life vests on the boat for the kids before booking. Iluh also arranged with one of the drivers, Ketut, for us to have a day trip (approx 6 1/2 hours in the end). We visited; mini Borobudur temple (close to the villa), the Holy hot springs (not worth the visit in my opinion), Git-git waterfalls (worth the hike to get there), the Botanical gardens (kids enjoyed it) followed by lunch overlooking the lake. Good trip and Ketut knew all the local roads including shortcuts when the heavens opened up. The only negative was the amount of rubbish on the beach and in the sea water…. I would highly recommend this villa for groups, families or whoever – it is paradise.
Thanks to all the staff again for our wonderful experience / time there.

“Fantastic holiday and villa”
Had the most brilliant holiday on Bali and in Villa Banjar Beach. From start to finish the whole holiday was brilliant. Easy and well organised by the owner of the villa. Prompt and efficient booking and correspondence from the start.. Thank you Angelique and Matt. On arrival at the airport we were greeted by a driver sent by the manager, and driven to the Villa, this took a couple of hours but time passed quickly. Checked in by the security guard and shown around the beautiful property. 3 bedrooms all with Air Con and private bathrooms. The entire property was tastefully decorated and furnished, all new and well looked after. The infinity pool was just beautiful and so relaxing, just to dip into at anytime of the day, also plenty sun beds. The garden was so well looked after too. Looking straight out onto the shoreline. The house keepers Kadek and Desa, did a grand job of taking care of us as well as the villa. Cooking lovely meals when required. the property was immaculate… We went out with the driver Eric several times, he was just amazing! taking us to plenty places, Temples, Waterfalls, Monkeys, Elephants, Volcanoes etc. He took such great care of us and really made the trips for us. Thank you Eric. Most places were quite far away but well worth the drive (air conditioned) in the people carrier. Splendid holiday made even better by the kind people of Bali and the Great hosts of this Villa.

We stayed with our children and grandchildren in mango trees bungalow. The kids used the swimming pool even before they had their breakfast, the staff was so kindly and helpfull as can be.

FAMILY COMMANDEUR – VILLA BUNDAR
May 3, 2016
“Your home away from home, with more personal service than in a hotel”
The location of villa Bundar is beautiful. The villa and the beds are clean. You wake up having breakfast on your own terrace with a fantastic view on the ocean. The staff is very friendly and flexible. They adapt to your wishes and schedule. They help you with tours you want to do and advice you on how to do them. They discuss with you what you want to eat the next day and do all the groceries for you. The pool of this villa was very suitable for small children and clean. The other villas have all different pools. The end of your garden is the beginning of the beach. The beach is clean and has black volcanic soft sand. The beach is also used by fishermen, which is nice to watch. The tour from this beach to see the Dolphins was very special and an adventure. The group of Dolphins is very large. Beautiful to see. The cooking of the staff is very nice and tasty, sometimes even better than in the restaurants we went to. Also the drivers that you can book via the villa for tours are very friendly, helpful and discreet. All staff is very friendly for the children. If you are looking for peace and silence when you come back from touring Bali, this is the place to be. If you are looking for disco and night entertainment than this is not the place to be. Surf waves are not te be found here either. You can make some nice trips to Pemuteran for snorkling and take a boat to Menjangan Island. Also see the turtle sanctuary and let your child adopt a baby turtle. We also did trips to the hot water springs, the buddist tempel, a beautiful waterfall, a coffee plantation, Lovina beach, the volcanic crater with temple. All within range of the villa and not to far with small children. At the same time letting them see and learn a lot about Bali. I do think that the trip from the airport to the villa after the long flights is long. About 3 hours and in our case in the dark. I would recommend to stay a night near the airport and than combine the trip with seeing Ubud on the way to the villa in daylight. If you do a round trip Bali than the villa is a nice place to end your trip and relax. The new spa is a treat.

Villa Bunga is a very nice place to stay. The ladies in the villa are very kind and helpful and the house is super. The sound and the view of the sea!
There are several things to do in the neighborhood. Especially the tracking in Mayong with our guide we liked.
FAMILIE VAN DEN DOOL – VILLA BUKA KECIL
May 3, 2016
Waar zal ik beginnen? Bij het binnenrijden van de poort werden we overdonderd door het huis, de tuin en de ligging ervan. Het is een ultieme luxe waar je je al snel in wilt laten onderdompelen. De staff is geweldig, warme mensen met dusdanige kookkunsten waardoor we geen 1 restaurant in de buurt meer wilde bezoeken :-). Het zwembad aan het terras, maar ook de ligging pal aan zee (de golven hoor je ieder moment) en de riante en prachtig onderhouden tuin was voor onze meisjes (7 en 5 jaar) subliem. De Villa zelf is zeer ruim, mooie en ruime slaapkamers, luxe buitendouches, keuken, wasmachine (handig) en vooral geweldige staff leden die alles doen om het verblijf nóg fijner te maken. Ik vergeet nog bijna de ‘achtertuin’, prachtige sawa’s (rijstvelden). Lovina ligt niet direct op loopafstand, maar chauffeur staat altijd ter beschikking. Hoogtepunt natuurlijk dolfijnen kijken vroeg in de ochtend. Het bootje komt je voor de villa ophalen! Een plek om volledig te ontspannen en te genieten…wij hebben het ten volle gedaan!

We hebben een heerlijk ontspannen week gehad in villla Pantai. Prachtige, goed onderhouden villa met een fantastisch uitzicht. De beschrijving en foto’s zijn niet overdreven! Het personeel is vriendelijk, gastvrij en behulpzaam. Kortom, een echte aanrader, ook met kinderen.
FAMILIE SNIJDERS – VILLA THE MANGO TREES
May 2, 2016
Vanuit Ubud, zijn we 6 dagen in de villa geweest. Bij binnen komen door de poort werden we allervriendelijkst opgevangen door Putu en Ilu en de tuinman. Een heerlijke verfrissende vruchtendrank na een lange rit. Het huis zag er fantastisch uit, overal verse bloemetjes, en prachtige slaapkamers met goede matrassen, met ieder een eigen badkamer. Vanuit de woonkamer kom je op een heerlijk beschut terras met eettafel en lounge bank in een heerlijke tuin, voorzien van een overdekte sala waar je heerlijk kan genieten van een fantastisch uitzicht over zee.
Ook door een trap komt je op een tweede sala, helemaal genieten van het uitzicht.
De twee dames staan altijd voor je klaar, om samen de eerste boodschappen te doen, en later in zelf aan te vullen.
Ook een heerlijke maaltijd kan door ze worden verzorgt, zeker aan te raden om te doen. Ook voor vragen over duikcursus, reservering maken voor Spice Beach Club en ook aan te raden om te eten bij Secret Garden. Transfer regelen de dames voor je.
Kortom een fantastisch huis om heerlijk te ontspannen.

Amazing staff, gorgeous views, great facilities. Only the little lizards made our stay a little uncomfortable 😉 Julia the cook made our stay very pleasant, she is very helpful and has done all the possible things to make us happy. Also the security was good. Overall the best villa to stay in! Will be coming back as soon as possible and next time not for only 1 week but for 1 month!
Thanks to all the staff!

2 families with 4 young kids we really enjoyed our stay in this awesome villa. Angelique was very adorable during the reservation phase and arranged the pickup for us from the airport to Lovina (3h). Ketut was very helpful and drove us to many lovely places Girls prepared gargatuan breakfast and delicious meals. Very impressed by the villa itself and the area around – perfectly equipped – tastefully decorated – wonderful swimming pool (even for the youngest 2y old boy) – massages at the end of the garden. Cool, relax, a staff attentive to our well being What else ? 😉

“A little paradise”
We stayed at Villa Bundar for 4 nights. After I read all other reviews I thought I would give it a go, and it was fantastic! A big thank you to Ketut who made our holiday relaxing and memorable. She cooked beautiful meals for us and I am looking forward to trying out the recipe she gave me. ( Must try her Sate Ayam!) The villa was spacious and big enough for 4 of us. The swimming pool was great in the beautiful garden right on the beach. The beach was black and dirty but we enjoyed the beautiful sunset. The welcome massage was a big bonus.(1 hour full body massage) The villa is situated 20 minutes drive from Lovina town and 30 minutes from Singaraja, so you will need a transport to get around. The driver will charge you IDR 150K to Lovina or IDR 250K to Singaraja (return trip) which I thought it was a bit expensive. Some restaurants give you a free transport and we tried a new restaurant that was recommended by the villa. The setting was beautiful but the food was very average and the service was very slow even though they were not busy at all. So why don’t you stay at the villa and have a beautiful home cooked meal Ketut could prepare for you!? The only negative comment I would make is the bathroom always smelled musty and so did all the towels that were kept in the cupboard. They don’t provide any soap or shampoo in the bathroom (only hand soap) so pack them up before you get there! Thanks again for your lovely hospitality! I would highly recommend to stay at Villa Bundar!

De villa en het personeel zijn fantastisch. Enorm ruim en comfortabel; voorzien van alles wat een mens kan wensen op vakantie: Zwembad, ruime tuin, groot schaduwrijk terras, ruil van binnen en mooi ingericht, etc. De aanwezigheid van het personeel zorgt voor de ideale combinatie, waarbij je de privacy hebt van een huis en de service van een hotel. Ze zorgen voor heerlijke maaltijden en houden het huis netjes. Het huis mooi gelegen aan zee (rustig strand) in het noorden van Bali. De ideale uitvalsbasis om “het echte Bali” te ontdekken, want het is er niet echt toeristisch (zoals in het zuiden). Wat ons betreft een échte aanrader!

“Vacances de rêve à la villa Bersama”
La villa est encore mieux que ce que l’on voit sur les photos. Pour le repos ou les activités, tout est prévu pour passer un séjour inoubliable. Le staff est tout simplement extraordinaire. Mention spéciale pour Ketut qui sur simple demande vous organisé dans les minutes qui suivent l’activité de votre choix, visites,treck, plongée….
De plus c’est une excellente cuisinière qui vous fera découvrir la diversité de la cuisine balinaise. Je n’oublié pas Gede et Kadek, leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité.
Bref, 15 jours de pur bonheur à recommander sans hésitation.
Our stay was even better than expected. The villa is wonderful and the staff really amazing.
Their kindness, their disponibility and efficiency help us to spend a wonderful holiday
We were very sad to leave Bali and the villa and we hope we will return later.
I thank you very much for all your kind advices.

Villa Sali is a great place to relax and to have fun with family and friends. The environment is quiet and the staff is very good and flexible. Trips, shopping, massages, etc. were managed by the staff. We enjoyed the time and our kids had a lot of fun.
We can recommend the villa for groups, families and couples they want to relax.
Thanks for the great time, maybe in the future we come back.

Eine wunderschöne, sehr gepflegte und stillvoll eingerichtete Strandvilla mit Pool in der Nähe von Lovina. Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen und die ganze Zeit gut versorgt. Die Frauen haben für uns Lebensmittel besorgt und jeden Tag gekocht, der Gärtner kümmerte sich um den Garten, abends kam der Guard und sorgte für Abendbeleuchtung. Ein sehr gelungener Urlaub in schöner und entspannter Umgebung, danke, gerne wieder.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Angelique has been very responsive and helpful. We got quick replies on everything and did not miss anything. Even when we learned that our flight back was cancelled (Brussels ) she replied very quickly and we could arrange everything needed. The staff in the house is just great. Kept the house in order and cooked really delicious meals for us. They organized everything we wanted, drivers, scooter, trip to dolphin watching, just everything. We loved the region since there where not many tourists. This is a place I highly recommend to stay. I am sure we´ll be back.

The Villa is amazing & we had a wonderful 6 nights staying there. The setting is incredible, the villa very comfortable & the beach a few steps away. We explored the area & spent a couple of great evenings having dinner & drinks at The Spice Beach Club. We were traveling with our 3 young children – 9 yrs/6 yrs/ 3 yrs – who all had a fantastic time. The staff are many, friendly & attentive. We did however feel a slight lack of privacy as there are always numerous staff walking through the property or in the property. A few hours a day of no staff around would have been quite welcome. We unfortunately did not get to meet Angelique as she was in The Netherlands but we had a great stay and felt very welcome. It would be nice if the birds & bat in their tiny cages in the garden were let free. It is pretty sad
seeing them every day. thanks for the great stay.
PARTY BROWN– VILLA BUNDAR
March 19, 2016
The staff at the villa were amazing and helpful. Putu and Ketut really took care of my friends and me. The food was great, they did a good job of cleaning up the place each day. They spoke English well. The yard workers didn’t speak English but you probably wont interact with them much. The pool was amazing and the aesthetic of the villa is relaxing and calm. The villa isn’t too far from stores and you can order in food if you prefer. We did a lot of activities in Bali. I suggest going to the Krisna watersports 15 mins away and trying out the activities they have there. This trip was one of many first time activities. However, beware android phone users their wifi does not work with our phones. Also note that there is only one bathroom with 1 shower and 1 bathtub. There is a powder room near the living room. Also the listing says suitable for 5 ppl. It has 2 full beds and a single bed. Not 5 separate bedrooms. Therefore, it is more suitable for 2 couples and 1 additional person. But my friends and I were OK with sharing a bed. Overall, I would recommend this villa. It was so beautiful and `the view alone sells this place. The pictures on the site doesn’t do the place justice. It really is more amazing.

Villa Bundar is absolutely gorgeous and just perfect. It’s as described and better. Beautiful garden, pool and directly on the beach, next to a bar with massage lounge. We were made welcomed from the very first moment and spoiled to the last. The staff is amazing. Meals were most delicious and we had a chance to taste variety of local meals. The house was kept very tidy, we were helped with laundry. Also help with arranging trips was very much appreciated. It was our best relaxing holiday ever. Bali is a beautiful island with amazing nature and lovely and talented people. Truly an excellent experience in all levels.

March 11, 2016
Returning to Bali, this time with my parents and our two small children. We wanted to experience the quiet and calm part in the north after visiting Ubud, but never anticipated finding such a paradise! The beautifull villa lies surrounded by stunning, very well kept gardens with very nice views on the Bali sea, it’s even better when sitting on the terrace, lounging in the bale, or from the pool, infinity blue is the correct term. The staff makes your stay even more pleasant, Iluh and Sayu keep the house immaculate and are both gifted cooks. Their attention and kind care makes the stay even more comfortable than a five star resort. The villa is well equipped and even games and dvd are provided, although they are no match to the great swimming pool. There is more than enough to explore in the vicinity, the Banjar hot springs and Brahma Vihara Ashrama temple are near by, snorkeling Mendjangan island is more than worth it. It is also a very special experience to be able to be picked up on the beach right in front of your villa to see the Dolphins swimming near Lovina. If we are lucky enough to return to Bali in the future we will definitely return to villa Sali!
FAMILY DE LA VERGNE– VILLA BANJAR BEACH
March 10, 2016
Die Villa war das absolute Highlight unserer 3,5-wöchigen Balireise! Anhand der Bilder hatten wir bedenken es könnte zu modern oder steril sein, was sich nach unserem Ankommen als unnötige Sorge zerschlug. Die Villa ist mit sehr viel Stil und Geschmack geplant und eingerichtet worden. Dieser Eindruck begleitete uns über die gesamte Dauer unseres Aufenthaltes, hochwertige Ausstattung bis ins kleinste Detail (z.B. Essbesteck). Das gesamte Personal zeichnete sich durch besondere Freundlichkeit und Kompetenz aus. Alle sprachen Englisch. Das Haus war absolut sauber, der Garten und Pool top gepflegt und der Nachtwächter war stets präsent. Das Essen welches Kadek und Dessa zubereitet haben, war so hervorragend, dass es in der folgenden Zeit schwierig war indonesische Küche zu finden, die sich damit messen konnte. Unbedingt empfehlenswert! Organisation und Kontakt zu Angelique waren hervorragend. Sie half uns sehr kulant über Nyepi-Day, vielen Dank hierfür! Wir empfehlen diese Villa auf jeden Fall weiter, obwohl wir die Abwechslung lieben werden wir diese Villa wieder buchen, sollten wir wieder in diese Region reisen. Vielleicht die ehrlichste Bewertung gab unsere 3-jährige Tochter ab, die weinend zu Protokoll gab, dass sie nicht weg möchte und in dieser Villa bleiben möchte.

Where do I start. Amazing, glorious, fantastic, oasis hideaway.
From the time of first booking our 5 night stay the owner Angelique was so prompt and so helpful. Nothing was ever a problem. Fantastic communications.
After a nightmare week in a villa in Seminyak we were soo happy when the driver arrived to take us to Villa the Mango Trees on the other side of Bali. The drive is long but beautiful and a great opportunity to see the real side of Bali. At the end of our trip we drove into the gates of what I can only describe as paradise.
The staff where all waiting for us and greater us with such kindness and an ice cold drink. Fabulous.. The villa itself is exactly as portrayed in ALL advertisements. Actually it excelled the photos. We spent a magical 5 nights and the staff were kind caring attentive and just terrific. I can honestly highly recommend this villa. You will not be disappointed. The most beautiful and peaceful place in all my 30 years of traveling to Bali that I have ever stayed.
Thank you to all the staff who were so patient and involved us in their lives (we learnt so much) and thank you Angelique for allowing us to share this spectacular treasure in Bali. Hint: stay longer than we did. 5 nights is defginately not long enough.

Douchen terwijl je de zee hoort is echt een gevoel van luxe. We hebben vaak in het zwembad gelegen wat dan weer in een prachtige tuin ligt. Personeel meer dan vriendelijk. Alles lekker schoon. Heerlijk gegeten. Kortom: een geweldige tijd gehad. Wij komen zeker nog een keer terug.

The villa is gorgeous and comfortable, the staff efficient and friendly, the location peaceful and serene. Each and everything promised in the description and pictures was delivered beyond our expectations. The villa, pool and facilities are best in class and anything you can think of is provided or can be arranged by the staff. This is an ideal place for a “get away from it all” vacation, although there are activities in the area which one can pick up if desired. Strongly recommended and a big thank you to the Mango Tree Villa staff and administrators.

“Heaven on Earth!”
What a great place to be! Beautiful Villa situated on the beach, with a great view, even from your bedroom when you wake up! Wonderful garden with a swimming pool and all kinds of chairs/ lounge/bunga for relaxing or massage with Balinese music. Very private , good maintained, clean and everything you need for a wonderful holiday. We were spoiled by Illuh and Putuh with great food: the menu is maybe even better then in a restaurant. We felt secure with Komang guarding during the day and Made during the night. No regret for the early rise for the Dolphin tour, picked up in front of the villa: we saw at lest a hundred. We used the bikes to make a trip but also hired motor bikes. If you like a nice, relaxing holiday then GO!

“A lovely place with exceptional customer service”
In December, 2015 we spent nine days at Villa Santai and can only say ‘Thank you’ – it is an exceptional place with plenty of options to unwind and relax.
The villa itself is big, providing enough room for 9 people, including a dining area and several community areas (eg. garden, upper deck, lower deck).
The villa and surroundings are clean and well-maintained. The ‘staff’ are super friendly and sweet, accommodating around any plans and wishes. They were lovely and very helpful. Thank you very much!
The customer service pre-arrival was just as good – excellent communication and support with all travel preparation. Again, thank you.
We spent the holiday here for a family reunion with people arriving from different places. For such, I can only recommend Villa Santai.
Other activities or places are further away and, as such, we booked either cars or scooters with which the team helped at all times. The villa is a good base for diving activities up north or discovering places further inland.
It is not a place for those seeking entertainment and a lot of action. For a casual, yet nice lunch/dinner we can recommend Sea Breeze Cafe in Lovina – great ocean views and a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
There is a spa attached to the garden where you can book massages. Hence, we often just moved between the amazing pool, reading on one of the day beds, massages and eating yummy food… that’s how you picture a holiday, don’t you?
Overall, a great experience that we would recommend.
Thank you and all the best.

We had a wonderful vacation at the villa (5 adults and a child). Matt was wonderful in responding to all my queries and facilitating the whole process from the time we made our reservations, including helping us to arrange for our massages. The villa is beautiful. A paradise away from commercialized areas in Bali if you would like a retreat. It’s well taken care of by Kadek and Desak, and also the gardener. Kadek and Desak were also very helpful in housekeeping, and the food they prepared for us were delicious. They also helped us to arrange for dolphins watching…which is one experience that we totally enjoyed! What a treat to see wild dolphins leaping out of the waters of Bali Sea! Erik the driver was also very friendly and wonderful in arranging for our day trips and airport transfers!

KURT MOFFITT – VILLA BUNDAR
January 16, 2016
The villa was amazing the people there gave great vibes. I would totally recommend for people to go to this location. The local people were awesome, the food was amazing and they were on our schedule. I can’t wait to go back to Bali again I already am planning on sending my parents here too enjoy the same villa ..they provided a driver who was local and knew what was going on the house cook / guide booked everything for us that we wanted to do. There’s tons of activities, we went snorkeling Road JetSki’s white water rafting, went and viewed waterfalls, played with monkeys, swim with dolphins, Road fly boards it was never ending…The masseuse had magical hands I swear it’s the best massage me or my girlfriend had ever had in our life’s. It was nice waking up every morning with the locals fishing and out on the beach playing soccer, everyone said hi every opportunity they got. This really is a special place.

FAMILY ALY FLOOD – VILLA BERSAMA
January 15, 2016
This house was absolutely beautiful. The pool was great and the private cabana on the side of the property overlooking the ocean were fantastic. The bedrooms were very comfortable as well. I can’t say enough about the staff–they were so kind and helpful. We had my 2 year old nephew with us and they were great with him, too. If you’re looking for a place to get away and relax this is it. However, if you’re looking to go out for shopping and restaurants I’d probably recommend staying elsewhere. I was a little unsure of the neighborhood when we drove in, there’s not much around. We took a day trip to Menjangan for snorkeling–1.5 ish hour drive. We also did the dolphin tour from here which was great because they picked us up right on the beach at the house! Well worth it.

FAMILIE MARKHORST – VILLA SIMHA
January 10, 2016
Onze vakantie op Bali was onvergetelijk! We hebben genoten van de villa en alle faciliteiten erom heen. Bijzonder waren Made en haar team. Mede dankzij hun hebben wij een heerlijke vakantie gehad. De ligging van het huis en het zwembad is prachtig. Een aanrader als je helemaal tot rust wilt komen en weg wilt zijn van alle drukte.
Met vriendelijke groet,

IKER AND FAMILY- VILLA BUNDAR
January 6, 2016
We stayed at Villa Bundar from Dec 26th to January 1st and we couldn’t have been happier. We are a family of four with a 4 year old boy and a 2.5 year old girl and the villa, pools, and beach were exactly what we were looking for to relax and enjoy spending time together as a family. It simply doesn’t get better in terms of location. In addition, Angelique was always quick to reply to all of our questions and offered good advice prior to our trip. That said, it’s worth noting that Ketut, the main cook, and the rest of the staff were absolutely amazing. You’ll see this being said in other reviews, but it’s only because it’s true: Ketut’s meals are hands down one some the most memorable meals you’ll try in all of Bali. Trust me on this. In any case, long story short – this place is a 10/10. It was our first time in Bali and I’d recommend this place to anyone. You won’t be disappointed.
FAMILY IN-ALBON – VILLA CANTIK
January 6, 2016
The booking of Villa Cantik was extremely easy. Angelique responded immediately and was very helpful in arranging pick-up and transport. The Villa is beautiful, equipped with everything that is needed to spend unforgettable vacation in a perfect setting. The location of the Villa is on the beach, the atmosphere laid back and relaxing. The staff provides the Service with a smile; just perfect. The north of Bali is still calm compared to many other areas of the island but many places worth visiting within a radius of 2 to 3 hours. We can’t but recommend Angelique’s villa- it’s a dream and we will certainly come back.

We had a wonderfull stay at Villa Sali. Communication with the owner went smoothly and she organized our transportation well.
Villa was really nice and big. Pool was fantastic. Everything was so good that we stayed at the villa without going out for many days! Staff was also really wonderfull!!! They really took good Care of us! They cooked tasty food and and kept everything clean and neat!
We all liked the staff a lot (parents, boy 13, girl 9). Garden was really beautiful and really well kept! Beds were good with quality cotton. Deco in the house was nice. It was really relaxing to enjoy the scenery to the sea!
We have been in Bali many times but this was nicest place we’ve been! Will be back there for sure! We heard that there are many regular guests- which doesn’t surprise us at all!

ENES EN DILEK SURMENELI – VILLA BUNGA
January 2, 2016
Op 12-12-15 was onze bruiloft. De 13e vertrokken we vanuit Nederland en op 14-12-15 waren we aangekomen in de prachtige villa Bunga. We werden verwelkomt met happy honeymoon teksten. Hierdoor was onze eerste indruk al super. Wij wilden na onze bruiloft even de rust opzoeken. Dit is zeker gelukt! De villa is gelegen op een rustig plekje ten noorden van Bali. Elke dag wakker worden met het geluid van de golven van de zee. Een super mooie uitzicht vanaf het terrasje van de villa.
De bediening en glimlach van het personeel was de slagroom op de taart. De twee meisjes kunnen heerlijk koken en regelen alles wat je nodig hebt. Het communiceren in Engels is geen probleem. Wij raden zeker aan om de dolfijnen te bezoeken en als je nog rond wilt reizen door bali dan is Putu een super gids. Hij spreekt goed engels en begeleid je door de leukste en mooiste plekken van Bali.
Wij gaan met leuke herinneringen terug naar Nederland!

We spend ten days at Villa Bersama. The villa is just next to beach with very nice ocean view. The staff are doing amazing job to fullfill your every request. The villa was clean with aircons in every bedroom. I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank Angelique about smooth check-in and check-out. She is very easy to communicate with and she replyed promptly whenever questions raised.
