Bali was great and villa Cantik is heaven. Other than Gus needing to leave us after only two nights  it was great to experience another side to Bali.

Villa Santai is an amazing place, perfect for enjoying the sun, swimming and local hospitality. The people working at, and around the Villa are fantastic and will make you feel at home and looked after! I highly recommend Villa Santai for anyone wanting to relax in the sun while the staff looks after your every needs!

“Such a relaxing holiday”

This property was so lovely. The staff could not have been more helpful and Ketuts food was awesome. Listening to the waves all day and swimming was the perfect. Communication between Angelique and myself was quick and she answered all questions. This is our first time north and definately won’t be our last. We will be back for sure.

Perfect for honeymoon. Quiet, secluded, and ever friendly staff always available. Ketut was an excellant caretaker and her cooking was amazing. We didnt have to leave the villa much. It was just perfect.

Die Villa ist ein absoluter Traum – wir (3 Paare) haben uns dort so wohl gefühlt, dass wir nur schweren Herzens abgereist sind. Es war ein wunderschöner luxuriöser Aufenthalt den wir nie vergessen werden! Die Villa hat einen großen grünen Garten, ein super schönen erfrischenden Pool, viele schöne Ecken zum entspannen, freundliches Personal und eine sehr schöne Inneneinrichtung. Die Villa liegt in einem Villen-Komplex und hat einen direkten Zugang zum Strand. Auf Grund der reichlichen und schönen Begrünung, bekommt man von den Nachbarhäusern absolut nichts mit und ist nur für sich. Die Schlafzimmer (für 8 Personen) verfügen alle über eine Klimaanlage, ein eigenes Bad und Mosquitonetzen an den Betten. Der schöne offene Küchen-Essbereich ist sehr einladend. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit, zuvorkommend und spricht gut Englisch. Einfach super! Sie haben für uns eingekauft, zusammen mit dem Help Desk den Fahrer Ketut für Ausflüge organisiert und mit Rat und Tat zu Seite gestanden. Jeden Tag kümmert sich der Gärtner um die Außenanlage samt Pool. Die 2 Küchenfeen haben von uns jeden Tag ein leckeres Essen (Frühstück, Lunch oder Dinner) gezaubert. Der Nachtwächter/ Guard war stets dezent im Hintergrund präsent. Unsere Welcome-Massagen waren so gut, dass wir gleich mehrmals eine Massage genossen haben und auch die Ausrüstung für Stand up paddling haben wir mehrmals genutzt.

I stayed at Villa Banjar Beach with my family of 6 persons for four nights.We booked it via Tripadvisor. The villa owner was quick to respond and was kind enough to email a detailed document containing guidelines, instructions about the villa and nearby attractions to visit. Villa Banjar Beach is like a mini palace located on Banjar Beach having four bedrooms, exclusive bathrooms, spacious living room. The outdoor swimming pool is worth relaxing. We enjoyed a lot in the pool. Lawns are lush green and well manicured. Fruit laden trees(coconut, mango,banana,apple) trees are the highlights of the garden. The front view of the sea is amazing and refreshing as the sea water is pristine.Although the beach is not so clean. The villa is carefully designed to cater every need. It is maintained by a professional staff. Kadek and Desak are amicable, cooperative and courteous. Both of them cook delicious meals. They prepared mouthwatering grilled fish for us. Edi, the security guard was available to help us in every way after 6 pm. Putu and Ketut maintained garden and swimming pool without causing any disturbance during the early hours in the morning.Erik, the driver was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us wherever we wanted to go at reasonable rates. Our stay at the villa was very relaxing, refreshing, comfortable and enjoyable. We highly recommend Villa Banjar Beach for a serene, relaxing and a luxurious stay. We hope to spend more days at the villa when we visit next time. P.s. Beware of ripoff merchants who come to the beach.

Our stay at the villa was simply amazing. The villa is large and clean. It is good for a group of 8 to 10. It is located near a beach where you can relax at the end of the day. The view from the lawn was splendid. All the amenities mentioned in the description are aptly provided. The housekeeper was very helpful. She cooks really well and can make anything specific if requested. The tour guide provided to us was great and friendly. He helped us with trekking and transfer to airport on our last day of the trip. Definitely worth it.

“Amazing villa!”

I stayed in the villa with my girlfriend and we had an amazing time. It is beautiful and very relaxing. The staff were friendly and we liked to rent a bike and discover the area. I can definitely recommend this place to others!

Incroyable paradis

Superbe villa au bord de l ‘océan. L’endroit est magique. Nous sommes allés fin mai début juin et nous étions seuls au monde, l’océan et la plage pour nous seuls. Ressourcement complet avec du personnel compétents, disponibles, serviables et gentils. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir!

Hi, We have stayed with Angelique’s place from 26th – 29th May 2017. Trust it’s a wonderful Villa, well equipped kitchen, very good swimming pool, lovely rooms, mind blowing views, well laid villa, very good interiors and furniture. In a single word it’s awesome. I can guarantee you that you will not be disappointed at all by any means. Thanks a lot Angelique.

“An idyllic spot. The villa, it’s staff, the garden are exceptional”

Perfect location to embrace Bali and not feel any need to rush around. Our most relaxing vacation ever. The house staff are marvellous and maintain a stress free vacation environment.

Robert Hockey, USA

Love the villa, pool, convenience of the spa for massages, and quiet vibe of Lovina. Only thing that was a bit of a bummer was the garbage washing to shore on the beach. They raked it up every morning but as more was floating in it deterred us from using the beach or going out on the water there. Thankfully the pool is excellent at the villa and lots of hangout room there.
Melanie Hamilton and friends, Canada

We had a fantastic stay at this lovely villa. We had the entire place to ourselves which is exactly what we wanted but you could comfortably fit three couples or a family. Beautiful view of the ocean. The staff were friendly and happy to buy groceries and cook if need be. We were able to choose what time the cleaners would come so we had the privacy we wanted when we wanted it. All in all a great stay. Cheers

“Great place to recharge”

We stayed at Villa Pantai for four days in May with four adults and two children and it was amazing! The villa is beautiful, the photos don’t do it justice. The pool is fantastic, and being able to wander directly onto the beach was wonderful…especially for our kids. Made was always around for help but not intrusive at all, and she is an excellent cook. We highly recommend the crispy chicken!! Made arranged transport whenever needed, and was also able to resolve an issue when a driver asked for a higher amount than quoted. We also had massages in the villa every day which was wonderful. The only slight negative would be that three of the four bedrooms are quite small. This didn’t bother us much as we weren’t really spending much time in the rooms, but good to note. Overall we loved the villa and hope to return!!

Stunning villa, gorgeous beachfront property, and beautiful pool and gardens. The staff was so helpful- not obtrusive or in the way and completely wonderful to have shopping and cooking/cleaning done for us. The property easily slept 6 adults, 2 children, and 2 infants. The host was super helpful- had an issue with slippery tiles and she immediately informed the owner so they could get it fixed. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

“Amazing villa”

Me and my husband spent 5 nights at the villa and loved it. On arrival it was jaw dropping! very large and spacious with the most amazing view!. Putu and Ilhu were great and cooked amazing food, they cared and looked after you. Although the setting of the villa is amazing we did find the overall location a little remote for us, we like to walk to local bars and restaurants but you would need a taxi or catch a bus. We ate at the Beach Spice Garden under recommendation and used the free shuttle service, this was great and the food very good but expensive. Overall we had a wonderful stay, the villa is kept spotless and the pool and garden area immaculate.. if I was to be really picky the only thing I would change would be the towels, for a villa of this standard they were quite tired and old. I should also mention the bed was so comfortable and best nights sleep on the whole of our trip! memory foam mattress and pillows and air-conditioning that worked well 🙂 thanks for a wonderful stay.

May 18, 2017

This is a great place, with its own heart and soul. We felt so much relaxed and at ease here. If you love peace and relaxation, for your holidays, this is one of the finest places in Bali you can come to! There is nothing that will alter your consciousness other than the chirping birds and the roaring sea. Superbly maintained, all all needful amenities for a perfect home away from home. The staff have a great sense of responsibility, and are terrific in whatever they do!! All the important needful can be procured from the nearby market, or the big carrrefour in Singaraja, which is just a 25 min drive! We are coming back to this serene villa when we have our next holidays!!

“Amazing getaway”

The moment we entered the Villa we were amazed. And we stayed amazed during our stay. The view, the space, the sound of the sea, the great and superfriendly and helpfull staff: it was paradise. We will definately return to this amazing place!

“Loved it!”

We stayed at Villa The Mango Trees for 5 nights for the first part of our Bali Holiday with our group of 2 adults and 3 children. It is the first time we have stayed in the northern part of Bali. I found the overall experience of staying there to be excellent. The villa grounds is large and the gardens, very large pool and out door area are kept immaculate and beautifully maintained by the gardener. The villa itself is kept in fine order by the two lovely ladies who take care of the daily housekeeping. They will also happily prepare and cook meals for you at your request. All you are required to do is select what what meal you’d like, give them the necessary amount of money for the ingredients, and they will do the shopping and cook up delicious food for you fit for a king. A security guard is also employed who comes on duty in the early evening and works on until the early morning. He does a tremendous job and it’s good peace of mind knowing someone is keeping a watchful eye on things overnight. The villa is set on a black volcanic sand beach which is unique and interesting but I chose not to swim in the water because there is a fair bit of rubbish in the water which washes up on the beach. This of course is of no fault of villa staff and someone is employed to pick up any rubbish that washes up on the beach which keeps it under control. There are also hawkers that troll up and down the beach trying to sell their wares to you and will stand on the edge of the villa grounds trying to get your attention and call out to you. Don’t make the mistake I did and buy something otherwise you may get pestered on a daily basis. If you are looking for a place to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle with that little bit of added luxury, I would highly recommend this villa and can see myself returning in hopefully the near future.

“Very nice villa on the beach”

Beautiful spacious villa direct on the beach and close to Lovina. I would especially recommend this villa to families with children – there is a gaming room upstairs with kicker and ping-pong tables, the grounds are flat and the sea is calm and shallow.

“Beautiful garden, excellent view on the sea from different seating areas, great cook!”

After 3 nights in Villa Santai we moved to Villa Pantai to stay 6 nights and we also had a wonderful stay at Villa Pantai (which means beach). The house is very spacious, it would be very comfortable to stay with 8 people (and small children in addition). The garden is beautiful, very well maintained and a great pool. There are different areas to sit – the best place is the bed looking over the sea. Staff was very friendly. There was an excellent cook who made all kind of dishes while we stayed there for 8 nights. We love Indonesian food but she also made great hamburgers for a change. All by all very comfortable and luxurious villa for a very affordable price! There is one bathroom in open air. Our kids loved that one – it was very special. From this location you can do easy trips to Menjangan, Munduk, Mayong and many more. All within easy reach. Friendly drivers who show you the surroundings. But there is no need to go away as the villa and garden is very comfortable to stay there and relax. Massage can be requested at home and will be done outside on the bed. You imagine yourself on a cruise boat with the sound of the sea just next to you.

Diana and family, the Netherlands

“Private beach and beautiful garden”

The house is very spacious, it would be very comfortable to stay with 8 people. The garden is beautiful and pool is interesting with a waterfall. There are different areas to sit – even a nice relaxing place at the roof top with a view over the garden and to the sea. Staff was very friendly and not very much being present, in your face but doing all necessary tasks for you. They cooked nice dinners for us and the house was very clean (every day) and well organised. All by all very comfortable and luxurious for a very affordable price! Right at the beach with a gathering place (in shape of a boat) in front of the house where you can sit and enjoy the sea view or have a massage. From this location you can do easy trips to Menjangan, Munduk, Mayong and many more. Of course go for the dolphin watching in Lovina. All within easy reach. Friendly drivers who show you the surroundings. The house will also be nice just to stay there and relax.

Diana and family, the Netherlands



May 2, 2017

We had the most amazing time. It was our first time in Bali, we loved Lovina! The Villa is beautiful, many places to tuck yourself away with a book during the day or star gazing at night. It is kept beautifully clean by the girls, who were always smiling. We ordered our food choices the day before and the girls cooked for us, this worked really well for us as ours was a short trip. The food was great. We also went to a restaurant near by and was given free transport, again, the food was amazing. The girls organised for us to do the Dolphin tour. We really enjoyed it once we got over the volume of boats on the tour. We enjoyed our complimentary massage so much we had a second one. The pool boy was happy and chatty and had cleaned leaves etc before we had got up. Our driver to and from the airport was fantastic, he made us feel very safe going up and down the hills to and from the villa and airport. We would love to stay again and would recommend to others to stay. Thank you Angelique and staff.

“Villa les pieds dans l’eau”

Villa très agréable de par son emplacement, sa vue sur la mer. Malgré tout un peu vieillisante. Personnel très à l’écoute, aux petits soins, efficace et très agréable. Le massage offert à chaque personne ainsi que le 1er repas sont des petit plus non négligeables. A recommander ++++++++

Racine Gilles, France

Villa Pantai is in one word perfect. The location is great, not far from Lovina and with direct acces to the beach. Wonderful, well maintained garden and swimmingpool.The staff was so kind and helpful. Made, the manager/ cook of the house prepared delicious meals, did all the shopping for us and took even care of our very young baby whenever he cried!

“Paradise exists!”

Wonderful location near to the sea on one side and ricefields on the other. But what really makes this villa like paradise is the love and care of the people working in and around the villas.

“Enjoyable and very relaxing”

Three of us spent a week here in October and it was great. Very quiet location although there are a few bars and restaurants a short taxi ride away. However in a week we only went out to dinner twice as the villa and food was so good. The villa is great and can comfortably sleep 8! The pool and garden were immaculate. The beach was volcanic black and whilst a bit dirty in places still made for a pleasant walk. I also took my running shoes and jogged around the local villages most mornings. The children and locals were really friendly. The owner gave us lots of information on things to do and also advised us of driver who was available when needed. As you would expect in Bali, the driver was inexpensive. Even the three hour drive from the airport was only about $60. We weren’t sure about the weather going in October but it turned out fantastic. One dodgy afternoon in seven days. Will go back here again at some point.

“Großartige Strandvilla mit perfektem Personal”

Die Villa ist für Selbstfahrer leicht zu finden und bietet alles in perfekter Ausstattung, was man erwarten kann. Das Personal macht eine großartige Arbeit, wir wurden jeden Tag von Putuh und Illuh mit frischen schmackhaften Gerichten verwöhnt, und das noch zu einem günstigen Preis. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten von Balis Norden sind von der Villa gut zu

erreichen, besonders empfehlenswert ist die Schnorcheltour nach Menjangan. Daß der Strand nicht besonders sauber ist, mindert nicht die Qualität der Villa, denn fast alle Strände auf Bali sind vermüllt. Auch die gute freundliche Organisation von Angelique im Vorfeld muss erwähnt werden. Alles in allem können wir die Villa The Mango Trees mit gutem Gewissen empfehlen.

Judith und Otto Lienert, Germany



April 16, 2017

Wow, what a great place and great staff. This really does feel like Bali untouched. The trip from the airport is a brutal 3 hours which are quickly forgotten once the majesty of the place takes hold, well worth the time travelled. The pictures of the villa do not do it justice it is so much better although the beach leaves a lot to be desired. The gardeners extensive downtime could be put to better use here, additionally the garden furniture needs to be replaced. That said we 100% enjoyed our 12 days gere and would recommend to everybody. Thank you so much.

Gregg Palmer, UK



April 13, 2017

It felt like home on an island! We were two families and have enjoyed the inside and outside atmosphere on the property. So beautiful to swim at night time and see the reflection of the moon on the water. Pool was always clean and property well maintained. The rooms were spacious and the beds were clean and great to sleep on! Fresh drinking water to drink was a plus! The cook/cleaner outstanding with cooking all delicious meals. The drivers was always on time…… Great place for total relaxation and will recommend it to anyone….

Sanet and family, Australia

After a wonderful stay on Bali still spending a week with friends in Villa Bunga.
What a beautiful Villa and a fantastic view of the sea.
We have enjoyed all the Villa had to offer us, the swimming pool, the garden, the terrace, the view and the rest.
The friendliness and service of the staff, the delicious food of Kadek Duwi and it was wonderful to be so spoiled.
It was a wonderful week for all of us to our trip.

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.

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.

Sonja Seibt, Germany



March 30, 2017


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.

Richard Lagerweij, the Netherlands



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.

“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!!

“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.

“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.

Yoram and friends, The Netherlands



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.

“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.

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.

“amazing place”

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.

“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.

Brian & Karen, Canada



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.

Elate Tammenurm, Tallinn, Estland



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!

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 !!

Family Brouard, France



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.

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.

The villa was beautiful and serene. I couldn’t have imagined a better place to relax & enjoy the beauty of Bali. The staff was incredible and tended to our every need. Thank you to all the staff at Villa Santai for helping to make our vacation so wonderful.

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.

Amazing place and so very relaxing, the staff were fantastic and very helpful they went out of their way to make our stay extra special and trouble free. The cooking was very good and the place provides a wonderful relaxing get away for a group of 10 or just a couple wanting a spacious relaxing get away.

What a great place to stay! Very friendly staff, such a luxe to have them around and cook the best meals. Beautiful villa in a very local area, between the rice- fields. We felt very safe, had a relaxing week and hope to come back next year.

“The House on the beach!”

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. The breakfast/lunch and dinner were delicious cooked by Made. The villa has all modern conveniences. In short, we had a wonderful stay and we definitely would go back again!!

We have had a great holiday in Bali. Villa Banjar Beach was a wonderful stay. It was the first time in Bali and certainly not the last time. The House was beautiful with a lovely garden. The staff and in particular the two ladies in house were particularly friendly and welcoming and have delicious cooked for us. We are very spoiled and have really enjoyed it!

“Very hospitable!”

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 🙂

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.

“Absolutely gorgeous!”

We loved staying at Villa Sali over the New Year Holiday. The house, grounds and pool are stunning! The house staff is marvelous! We couldn’t have had a better time. We shall return!

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!

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.

“Amazing stay!”

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

“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!

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.

Herewith we would like to share our experience at Villa Pantai. Let’s start with the welcome; we got a very warm welcome from the staff and we all received a handmade flower garland. Upon entering the Villa we were all overwelmed by the atmosphere and the huge well maintained garden, an ideal playground for our child. As fans of Indonesian food we requested Made to cook traditional Balinese food for us. From that moment on we discovered her love for cooking, each day she made a different menu and we even asked her for a masterclass in Indonesian cooking. We spent a day in the kitchen making our favourite dishes. Made was amazingly professional and Made us so welcome in the Villa. Overall, we cannot give any negative feedback. For us the combination of this Villa and the staff was the ideal place to explore northern Bali. Thanks also to Made for organizing a private traditional Balinese Dancing show on Christmas Day. We also would like to thank Kadek for cleaning each morning the complete garden and pool. We won’t hesitate to come back here and would recommend it to all our friends!
