FAMILY SCHUPPERT – VILLA CANTIK
August 17, 2018
What a pleasure to enjoy Bali and stay with our family together in this beautiful villa! The staff was fantastic and took good care of us. The villa has a lovely swimming pool with views of the sea. Clean rooms and great food. In advance we received a nice overview with all kinds of information about the villa, surrounding area and even menu suggestions! Our children wanted to sleep one night in a tent as described in the description, this we could not find. Fortunately, they were soon forgotten!

FAMILY BROEKEMA – VILLA CANTIK
August 4, 2018
Villa Cantik is a great, spacious yet charming villa with a beatiful garden. While other villas might be even more modern and luxurious this villa for us made us feel living the north-Bali life. The staff is amazingly helpful and nice. The secluded location makes it s really tranquil experience but consider renting a motorbike to have some flexibility in shopping for some groceries in addition to what the staff does for preparing the meals. Angelique has been extremely supportive with extensive additional information and took care of the logistics to get to/from the villa (for a erg acceptable fee paid to the driver). We would love to come back one day!

“Fabulous villa with fantastic staff”
We really enjoyed in Villa Cantik. The house, the garden and the view is soooo great!! But not less important, the people who work there are fantastic. They have spoiled us with their delicious food and took so good care of us. This made our stay at the villa perfect!

“Great place to stay!”
We stayed for a week in this beautiful villa. Nice sea view (watch the sunset with a drink at the ” boat” bar next to the villa). Go watch dolphins (and let a traditional boat pick you up at the beach in front of your own house), climb the mount Batur (and get the most stunning sunset ever!). Let the staff cook the most delicious meals. They will pamper you, you feel at home right away. Take a dive in your own swimming pool and enjoy a fresh coconut in the shade. This villa and the surroundings are just amazing!

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful villa Cantik. It has a marvelous view on the garden and the sea. Beautiful sunsets, nice weather. The staff made us feel very welcome and took such a good care of us. We made trips with our driver “Mr. Dodi” and he showed us some magnificent spots on Bali. We are saving up already for our next trip!

January 26, 2018
This villa is located on the peaceful beach and the restaurant/Bar/Spa is only seconds away. Staff was also friendly and made us some dread tasting food. Wi-fi is also fast enough for working. The fifth bedroom is not so good for a couple of you need some space while sleeping but one people sleeps very well in this bedroom.

FAMILY MELLYSA – VILLA SALI
January 21, 2018
“We shall come back again!!”
Villa Sali for 7 nights were just fantastic, the location, the beach, the garden, the people (iluh,sayu,jaya,kadek,dani,ani) and your villa, all works very well. The kids (6 and 3 years old) just love the pool, beach and some cable tv kid program; the morning boat ride searching for dolphin tough none was found that day; and the super clear view of the stars in the sky at night. My mother in law enjoyed the time together with the grandchildren and also the quiteness, spending time reading her books at ‘beach front bale-bale’, writing her diary and plenty of naps. We also love the fresh fish bought from fishermen in front of villa and cooked them for our lunch; the Lovina & Buda bakery, the Mayong hiking trip; Munduk waterfalls, Munduk moding plantation trip and the delicious durian we ate along the way. Truly enjoyable trip for us and we shall come back.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Pantai, with 4 adults and 4 kids. The villa and surroundings are of very high quality and are maintained well. The staff is very friendly and Made is an outstanding cook. She supprised us every day with gorgeous meals. Arrangements for sightseeing and daytrips were very good and always on time.

FAMILY VAN DER ZWAN – VILLA BUNGA
January 9, 2018
“Small piece of heaven on earth”
We arrived on Christmas Day. The staff (Duwi and Kadek) made us the most delicious Indonesian dinner, with all sorts of dishes, and they had also set up a Christmas tree. During the rest of our stay the food was just as good – even much better than in many restaurants! During new year’s eve we were invited to celebrate with staff and other guests on the boat (an old boat on the beach with a bar and spa), which was a lot of fun. The villa itself is perfect. It is very light, has more than enough space for 6 peo ple, 3 bathrooms, a spacious and well maintained garden overlooking the sea, good aircon, and we loved the little gazebo in the garden. The gardener brought us mangoes and coconuts from the garden. All the staff were so nice, helpful, and funny, they really completed our stay. All in all I had not even one negative experience in this villa and would definitely come back.

FAMILY KJAER – VILLA BUNDAR
January 7, 2018
Perfect location by the beach. The villa is great for a family – we were 2 adults and 3 kids. The staff is simply the nicest, most helpful and smiling…and Ketut is just the best and does everything she can to make you relax. She took care of grocery shopping, tour arrangements, laundry, cooking etc etc. It’s also nice with the “beach bar” / ship next to the villa as there are not really any restaurants nearby. The area is not very touristic (which we liked very much), but it is also quite a long drive from DPS (almost 4 hours each way). We would definitely recommend this villa if you prefer staying in North Bali like us…and we would also definitely like to come back one day 🙂

FAMILY HOGAN – VILLA BUKA KECIL

Excellent location right on the beach. Comfortable villa with generous bedrooms and quaint “love shack” for a touch of rustic romance. Sweeping lawns and coconut palms complete the scene. Great choice for family or group holiday.

FAMILY KNIPP– VILLA PANTAI
December 27, 2017
We stayed at Villa Pantai in November. The villa is spacious and well equiped. 4 double bedrooms and each room with it’s own bathroom. 1 room has an open air bathroom which is really nice. The garden is well maintained with a nice pool, sun loungers and enough space to have a dinner outside. Next to the garden is the beach. The best thing of staying at villa Pantai is de staff that comes with it. At night there is a guard who looks after your safety and in the house is Made. Made is an exelent cook who prepairs the best Bali style dishes. There is a menu from which you can choose. You only pay for the groceries. Made also will help you to book a massage, or a driver to make an excursion. If you are looking a nice relaxing place to stay this absolutely is the place to be!

“Better than the photos!”
We stayed as two families for 9 days at the Villa and had an amazing time. The Villa and grounds are fantastic and the beach front position superb. Mary and the staff were hospitable and really made us feel at home. The Villa was well appointed and well designed to lure you into holiday mode as soon as you arrive. The area was a great base from which to explore North Bali.

Great place for secluded getaway. Everything was exactly as described, villa was spotlessly clean and we felt at home right from the moment we arrived.

“The villa was magical”
The villa was beautiful with views of the sea from all angles.The staff were fantastic and are what really makes this place special. They have this amazing way of being extremely helpful whilst allowing you the privacy of your holiday. The meals were amazing and the setting looking over the sea is something I will truly miss. We had some fantastic massages in the boat next door and our boys had fun trying to paddle board. We took some fantastic trips and experienced the serenity of Bali and its wonderful people. Thankyou so much.

“Back to paradise”
I would say … again back to paradise! For us the third time. All thoughts are allowed to rest. Have you always wanted to enjoy days when you do not have to think about anything? …no cooking? …no housework? … have no task? … can really relax? …no stress? … enjoy an extended Indonesian warm stone massage (90 min) from time to time? This is normal here. Only the thought of selecting the menu for the day remains as the most difficult daily task. Enjoy it!

We really enjoyed our stay at Banjar Beach. Thee location is amazing and the garden is beautiful and very well maintained. The house is comfortable and clean. The staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel at home. Kadek and Desak are great cooks.

Very lovely villa on the beach. Nicest place I’ve ever stayed! Awesome views! Wonderful welcome from staff made me cry. Lei’s and flowers everywhere. Fresh juice. Such nice touches. Made made this stay sooooo amazing! Very good English, warm and welcoming. Great food and very flexible. Whole property is so beautiful.

CANDY TAN– VILLA SALI
September 22, 2017
Villa Sali is exactly as described & shown! We were a group of 6 girls. Given the huge space and size of the villa, We felt really safe throughout the stay because security was provided around the clock making rounds. The dolphin tour arranged by ibu Villa Sali, was great. The boat guy graciously extended an hour(total of 3 hrs) for the tour at no cost. My 5th time to Bali in 2 years. The most breath-taking sunset i’ve witnessed. It was a good retreat & a break from the city life. Location: -secluded & private. -not walkable to shops but villa personnels took care of everything at a small fee Amenities: -POOL WAS BRILLIANT ,HANDS DOWN.(kids are advisable to use floaties) -beach front, calm sea ,sunny, windy all day. -outdoor sofa was the best. We were outside ALL DAMN DAY! -SUPER COMFY clean beds, pillow & fresh towels! -hairdryer,shampoo & shower gel provided -great surround system To the management & dedicated team of Villa Sali, We would like to thank you for pampering us and made our 3 nights stay so enjoyable till we didnt leave the premises at all. From the punctual& skilled driver who drove a long way with challenging roads, to the guard that made us felt at ease , the gardener & pool guy who did a great job and lastly, the 2 ibu who took very good care of us. They’re 1 of the reasons why we had an enjoyable stay. We chatted and joked with them all the time. They ensured meals were prep to our liking and took us on their motorbikes to go for grocery shopping! Haha! Makasih bu. This team did an amaZing job. We will come back again definitely. Makasih. Love from Singapore

“A fabulous escape to the north of Bali in Beachside Villa”
A drive across the island mountains to a peaceful location and a beautiful villa. Quiet, restful Bali whilst sitting in the lovely garden overlooking the sea. Great watersports and club restaurants nearby for a livelier evening. Nature, rice paddies and villages to explore. Just relaxing and being cooked for by the lovely staff is a pleasure. Bali was great and villa Cantik is heaven.

September 5, 2017
“Eine Ruhe Oase auf Bali”
Wir waren (leider) nur 3 Tage in der Villa Bersama auf unserer Rundreise durch Bali. Der Fahrer der Villa hat uns in Ubud abgeholt und uns via verschiedene sightseeing Highlights zur Villa gebracht. Die Villa liegt in einer Reihe von 6 Villen ca. 20-30 Minuten westlich von Lovina. In der direkten Umgebung sind also keine Geschäfte o.a. Wir fanden dies, sicherlich nach dem quirligen Ubud, sehr entspannend. Villa selbst ist sehr schoen und gut gepflegt. Größter Pluspunkt ist sicherlich das Personal. Man wird von der Haushaelterin Ketut sehr liebevoll umsorgt. Ob Frühstück , Mittagessen oder mal ein Abendessen, selbst Smoothies und Pfannkuchen fuer die Kinder, nichts ist zuviel. Wir waren wahrend unseres Aufenthaltes Schnorcheln und zum Spice Beach Club. Alles reserviert vor Ort durch Ketut. Auch den Transfer zu unserm folgenden Stop haben wir vor Ort geregeld.

August 17, 2017
We had a great time in this lovely house! The setting is just great, you start your day with a delicious breakfast prepared by Ketut, the housekeeper, enjoying not only fresh juices and pancakes but also the lovely sea view! We never went out for dinner but kept on asking Ketut to prepare the meals as she really is a great cook. And sitting on the veranda admiring the sunset or listening to the waves was just so relaxing! The location is perfect for various trips, whether you want to go and see waterfalls, rice paddies, temples or hot springs. There were so many things to do that we couldn’t even see all the things we planned to! After three weeks of travelling from one hotel no the next especially our kids enjoyed a lot to stay in a real “home” for some days, because this is what Angeliques house is: a home away from home. Absolutely to recommend!

We arrived after a 4-hour drive from Denpasar with a chauffeur arranged by the owner of the villa. An interesting drive through the mountains. Very small roads and lots of cars and scooters all in a hurry. After we arrived, the staff of the Villa prepared a welcome meal. Very nice sate and white rice! The view from the pool is amazing. The Internet is fast. There is a Wi-Fi modem with 12 Mbps down and 3 Mbps upload speed! Dinner at the spice beach club is highly recommended.

Notre séjour dans la villa d’Angélique s’est déroulé comme dans un rêve. Premièrement, la villa est top! Les chambres, la piscine, le bâtiment..tout! Elle est idéalement située, loin de la ville et à deux pas de la plage et non loin de bars et d’activités nautiques. Le staff est vraiment adorable et cuisine très bien. Je recommande cet endroit absolument… pour une famille ou un groupe d’ami!

FAMILY MERCER – VILLA BANJAR BEACH
July 11, 2017
A beautiful home built to a very high standard; loved the pool and the sunsets. The food was excellent so we relied on the staff most nights to prepare our meal as Lovina was a bit further away than we’d imagined. Our host arranged a large vehicle to collect us from Ubud and take us on to Kuta which was great as five or us with bags were struggling to fit in some smaller taxis earlier in our trip. We went out a few times to The Spice Club (recommended) and to walk around the town. Diving at Menjangan Island was OK, not great, recommend you research your dive shop more carefully than we did. Overall fabulous and agree with everyone who says the North is the “real Bali” – a very pleasant escape from the commercialism and traffic of the south; wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommended.

PARTY SCHUBBERT– VILLA SANTAI
June 29, 2017
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.

ANKIT KUMAR– VILLA BANJAR BEACH
June 29, 2017
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.

“This property is just amazing”
Amazing villa with a nice sea view. The staff is also very kind and did everything to make our stay such enjoyable. The rooms are very nice, specially that one upstairs. Single disadvantage is the dirty beach infront of the property. But to stay in this villa is very well recommended.

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!

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.

FAMILY WRIGHT– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
May 11, 2017
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.

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.

“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.

KATRINA EARP– VILLA SANTAI
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.

“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.

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.

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….

“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

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

FAMILY VASU– VILLA THE MANGO TREES
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!

FAMILY HEDELIUS– VILLA BERSAMA
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

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.

FAMILY MARTIN – VILLA PANTAI
January 2, 2017
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!
