April 5, 2017
Wonderful place and great sraff is what it takes to make an enjoyable vacation. Villa Bersama is spacious, elegant, and well staffed and equipped. The location is 30 minutes off buzzling Lovina making it quite and peaceful. The staff arranged for dolphin watching tour and every effort to please my family. I recommend villa Bersama for families with children and multiple couples.

SONJA AND JONTO– VILLA PANTAI
April 5, 2017
My husband and I had a very beautiful and relaxing stay in the villa with its tropical garden close to the sea. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and peaceful surrounding of the neighborhood with its rice fields. Just a few minutes away from nice restaurants and a supermarket. We can recommend the location very much. The staff was very friendly and pleased to help us in every way.

DALLAN SEAH– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
March 28, 2017
Great villa for a chill and secluded getaway with friends. Although secluded, food and massage options remain plentiful with the plethora of delivery options. Maids were great and helpful. The pool is amazing and having the ocean right by the house is an unparalleled experience. Rooms are comfortable and well kept . Beds were soft and comfortable.

FAMILY BRAVO– VILLA SANTAI
March 27, 2017
“Amazing relaxing vacation”
My mother and I had an amazing time at Villa Santai! The villa was well maintained, very clean, and spacious. It is just a few steps away from the beach, which is so convenient especially if you go on the early morning dolphin tour (I highly recommend it!). If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, then this is the perfect villa for you. It is far from the city, but the driver Ketut was the perfect driver/tour guide to resolve this. The girls at the villa were wonderful cooks, everything we ate was delicious and fresh. The gardener tended the beautiful plants every morning and cleaned the pool everyday. I recommend this villa to anyone who enjoys the tranquility outside the city and to be more in tuned with nature. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Villa Santai and will definitely return some time in the near future!!
FAMILY LYON– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
March 27, 2017
“A Stunning villa”
We loved everything about this stunning villa. It is located a 15 minute drive from Lovina but most of the restaurants offer a free shuttle service which makes it really easy to travel into the village. The staff were great and they helped us by booking massages, restaurants and tours. We took a dolphin tour and the boat picked us up from the end of the garden. The villa was really clean and well maintained. The pool is cleaned daily. The pictures do not do it justice in terms of the size the pool and garden which are really spacious. The sand on this side of the island is volcanic which means the beach is made of black sand. There is debris which is washed up daily, but the staff do try their best to clean it. This is obviously no reflection on the owners but on the many people who drop litter into our seas. We stayed for 5 days which just wasn’t long enough.

YORAM KNORRINGA– VILLA BANJAR BEACH
March 26, 2017
“Fantastic Villa & Staff”
I have stayed for one week in this amazing villa and I have to admit that this was the most relaxing part of my holiday in Indonesia. It was a perfect break in a few weeks of intensive travelling with 3 friends. We could totally relax at the pool in the garden or wander along the beach next to nearby fishing villages. If we wanted to get out and see the surroundings in the area there were enough activities to choose from. We decided to go mountain biking with the local guide Putu through the rice fields and the jungle, which was definitely the highlight of the week. During the little trip we also visited the family house of Putu and had some Indonesian snacks at his families farm. I can definitely recommend staying in villa Banjar Beach.

TJ JOHN– VILLA SANTAI
March 26, 2017
This place is great for a small family or a small circle of friends. We were a family of five adults and two kids and stayed here for three days and enjoyed it thoroughly . The villa is fully serviced with an exclusive trained staff that manages the house keeping and the cooking and the shopping and the cleaning etc.etc. The local food prepared by the staff was great. They would probably require minor guidance for cooking other cuisines. Swimming in the sea is safe but it is unexciting with no waves or breakers or rollers. The sea resembled a large shallow swimming pool for all practical purposes. The kids spent almost all their time in the swimming pool. The beach has black sand and is as good as any sandy beach. There are other similar villas in the neighborhood. The bedrooms and the bathrooms are great and the fully loaded open dining area and the kitchen is impressive . Angelique is a professional when it comes to describing the villa and all it contains. We found it it exactly as described. All the information provided by Angelique was useful and accurate and the arrangements made by her for our transportation and check in and check out went through with clock work precision. I recommend this place for a quiet family holiday.

It was fantastic to spent our holiday in this Villa. It was the right decision for all of us. The location was good. The beach is on the doorstep and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Also thank you for the support. Angelique was a good help for me to organize our holiday. Here the link if you like to see more from the Villa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYGVpPscS4M&t=822s

FAMILY LUESINK– VILLA SALI
March 20, 2017
“Feel a hollywood star”
Villa Sali, how else can I say then a little part of heaven on earth. You feel like a Hollywood star in this villa. The view is great, great staff and you are in the center of Lovina within 20 minutes by car. Breakfast will be made by the staff and if you want they can make dinner too. We really felt home and didn’t want to leave. Next time we go to Bali, we will definitely go back to villa Sali.
The location is even more beautiful than on the pictures. You can’t get enough of the view. Iluh and Sayu were two very good hosts. If we asked for something, delivery was almost straight away. Next time we stay longer, because we didn’t want to leave.

FRANK HENZE– VILLA BERSAMA
March 13, 2017
We (four friends) had a fantastic time being guests of Villa Bersama for a week. The location is far away from the touristic centers in South Bali, quite and perfect for relaxing, but same time a great starting spot to discover the entire island with day trips. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, really nice people who did everything to make our stay unforgettable and easy. The food was just awesome, though very often just too much 😉 We have booked a driver to make day tours every day. The price is totally reasonable (about 600k Rp. per day including everything) and given the traffic on Bali, I can recommend doing the same to everybody. Kadek speaks very good English, is a polite a reliable guy, and helped as a local guide to find places which we would never have explored without him. The Villa itself is just beautiful and I will remember the nice evenings we had just sitting outside or swimming in the pool. Our arrival was perfectly organized, from airport pickup tp ready prepared dinner. On bottom line, a place I can highly recommend to everybody and where I’d like to go back any time. Probably one day with family and kids.

FAMILY BARTHOLOMIE– VILLA BANJAR BEACH
March 13, 2017
We had a great time, the house is beautiful and spacious. the staff is friendly, helpfull and payed always attention on our needs. it’s the perfect place for kids, they can play in pool and see different animals everywhere. we’ll defenitly come back. we also loved the quiet area and the silence at night. the only thing we missed was a clean beach… the water is quite dirty and the beach full of trash. But anyway, it was the perfect house for us and we have been really sad to leave.

PARTY GAGNON– VILLA SANTAI
March 6, 2017
“Exactly as advertised!”
Just returned home from a fabulous vacation! We stayed with another couple at your villa for 8 days and the 4 of us enjoyed it immensely. We used the pool daily, enjoyed the cooking by your staff, visited the ship for massages regularly and enjoyed the daily night caps by the pool! The best part of all was the services of Ketut, your driver. He took us everywhere, made suggestions and recommendations and all for very reasonable rates. The upgrades to the WiFi really made a difference, with speeds just like home. Thanks again.

FAMILY TAMMENURM– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
March 6, 2017
Excellent villa which exceeded our expectations. Location wise it is a bit distance from Lovina but transport can be arranged for a small fee. Good place to enjoy some peace and quiet with making some occasional trips with the driver as needed. Highly recommended to stay here.

FAMILY LINDBERG– VILLA BUNDAR
March 4, 2017
Our week in the villa was amazing. We mostly just stayed in the villa where Ketut cooked really tasty food for us. We really enjoyed the view of the ocean, the pool and the small garden. We had everything we needed for a relaxing week with our kids (5 and 1,5 years). I can really recommend this villa!

FAMILY COTTE– VILLA SALI
February 26, 2017
The villa was extremely beautiful! the staff was very nice and helped with anything we needed such as scheduling massages and drivers. The three hour drive to the villa from the hotel was a long one after a long day of traveling but the drivers were very nice and spoke great English.

“Little bit of paradise”
Villa Bersama lived up to its description and photos. The villa was clean and tidy. Ketut, Gede and Dina were helpful and friendly and their cooking was amazing. Angelique was an great host organising a driver from airport and sending information on villa before hand.

La villa sali est splendide. La piscine à débordement presque sur l’océan, le jardin, le personnel, tout est parfait. Angélique,la propriétaire, a fait ce qu’elle à pu pour nous aider dans l’organisation de notre séjour. C’est vraiment une maison et une équipe à ne pas rater !!

LORA BENNETT– VILLA BUNDAR
February 16, 2017
My friends and I wanted somewhere secluded from the hustle and bustle of Lovina where we could relax and enjoy Bali by ourselves – we got exactly that. Angelique is a great host, she happily sorted out personal requests for our visit (it was my friend’s birthday) and was helpful with the information she provided prior to our visit. The villa itself is great if you want your own private place to relax; we had breakfast every morning overlooking the Bali sea and spent the warm evenings drinking cider by the pool. The cook, Ketut, is wonderful. She was so helpful in organising our day trips out and her cooking is fantastic, so much so that we never actually ate out because we were getting restaurant quality meals in the comfort of our private villa. It was truly a relaxing and wonderful place to stay.

VAN DER HORN– VILLA PANTAI
February 16, 2017
The villa was very nice with a beautiful view over sea. We had a great cook, Made. She surprised us everytime with the meals she prepared for us. We told her the night before what we would like to have for the next day and she made it. From indische rijsttafel tot wentelteefjes. She can fix anything. Also the gardener was cleaning the garden and the pool everyday. The only thing that wasn’t to nice was the beach. It has black coloured sand, because of the vulcano on the island. We had a great stay with a lot of luxury and excellent service. Thanks to the staff.

FAMILY DE HAAS – VILLA BUNGA
February 6, 2017
We have had a fantastic holiday in Bali! Especially because of the delicious house in which we stayed: Villa Cantik. We enjoyed everything in and around the villa. The lovely swimming pool, the location right at the beach, the service from Ketut and Dessa, nothing was too much for them! They cooked great food for us for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also our driver Dodi was superb, he guided us to the most beautiful spots on the whole island. The garden and the swimming pool were every morning taken care for by Eddy. We are a family with 4 kids of 10, 9, 7, 4.

Christmas 2016 we stayed 5 nights in villa Pantai. A lovely house with a beautiful garden right at the beach and sea. The house has large bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms.

January 23, 2017
We stayed a week in this beautiful villa! The staff are absolutely fantastic, very hjälpsama and Gorde everything to help us with our desires. The food they cooked in the villa was so good, among the best we ate in Bali. We can highly recommend a visit to Villa Bunga in Lovina. A small minus is that there are toilet and bath items included. Otherwise, we are super happy 🙂

FAMILY DONOVAN– VILLA SANTAI
January 22, 2017
The villa was just like the pictures. It was a little out of town but transport is cheap and easily accessible. The two girls that cook make beautiful meals and it’s so reasonably priced it was great. They were very helpful for anything we needed. Some great things to do in the area are aling ling waterfall, hot springs and we also did the atv adventure tour it was a lot of fun. All in all we had yet again another wonderful stay in Bali.

January 14, 2017
Amazing property, very appropriate for a family vacation away from all the crowd and chaotic atmosphere of south Bali. Best place to stay in if you’re keen on scuba diving and dolphin watching. This place is one of the best ones in Bali to do all of these!

January 13, 2017
Very nice vila, with a stunning and sea view and friendly staff. Clean, calm with short distance to a lot of activities on the north side off Bali. Make sure you get availability to the driver service which worked very well for us when going to activites or dinner/lunch.

FAMILY BUDOLFSEN– VILLA BUKA KECIL
January 8, 2017
Our extended family group had an amazing stay at Buka Kecil over New Year 2016. This is a great family-friendly villa on the beach in a very quiet area of Bali -exactly what we were looking for. Even a large group like ours – 5 adults and three boisterous boys- were no match for Mary and Komang. The kids really enjoyed the open space, the beach and the pool -not to mention the baleleng overlooking the beach (from where “pirate ships” were spotted). It’s a fair trek to the nearest restaurant but Putu the driver were happy to pick us up and drop us back when we needed. Down the lane was a few small stalls selling chips and cokes etc but anything we needed, Mary and Putu jack-of-all-trades were happy to get for us. We’d certainly recommend Buka Kecil for all looking for some r-n-r

FAMILY GALLAGHER – VILLA BANJAR BEACH
January 3, 2017
“Beautiful Beach House”
We stayed at this gorgeous home for 3 nights just before Christmas. The house is as lovely as the photos, with a great layout and 3 comfortable bedrooms. My husband and I stayed upstairs, and loved the spectacular view of the yard and sea. The other guests were in the downstairs rooms, and their only complaint was that the bathrooms are somewhat open to the rear of the house, so anyone in the driveway could see into the shower (not that anyone was looking). The staff were absolutely terrific, and cooked us some lovely meals. We were happy to spend the whole time at the property, so did not even venture out to the grocery store, but let the staff do the shopping. There is a very big menu of options to choose from for meals, and the staff will shop and prepare it all for you. They will also pick up anything else you need, snacks, beer, etc. The communication before arrival were all great, and our damage deposit was refunded quickly. The driver they arranged was great. The pool is great, there are lots of loungers and outdoor seating. The beach gets a lot of debris washing in on the tides, so it’s not the cleanest, but there are folks out there every day picking up. We had one beach walk, but you can’t get too far as there are wide streams in either direction. It might have been nice to explore some local restaurants, but there was nothing in easy walking distance and we chose to stay in rather than hire a car. It was perfect for our little pre-Christmas chill time!
CHRIS CONTINO – VILLA SANTAI
January 3, 2017
Great beach location in Lovina. The beach is black sand and very swimmable. The villa is well designed with a good large pool and cool children’s wading pool for my 1.5yr old. Villa staff was very helpful and cooked amazing meals for us. Stayed over Xmas 2016 with my parents and baby. I know the Lovina area and this is one of the best villas location as they have an excellent strip of beach that is not rocky and smooth. You can walk on the beach 10m to get to a restaurant complex at lowest of low tides. The on site massage spa provided outstanding massages. They catered to our every whim. Villa is designed and furnished to a high standard. Open air living and kitchen areas. Aircon in the bedrooms. The upstairs bale hut excellent for an evening drink and breeze. Truly a luxurious experience.
