“Very nice stay at Villa Padma” Clean, nice, quiet location in a beautiful garden. If you like tropical nature than you imagine yourself in Villa Padma in paradise. So many colors and flowering plants. We have enjoyed and will definitely go back. The beach where close by, but the terraces are much nicer, it's a 10 minute walk, but we always went with the scooter. Central Lovina, Kalibukbuk, is the only town in North Bali, where a variety of restaurants and shops, which are fun for the western tourist. We also where in a beach villa in Dencarik, but that was far too remote from any local villages. We will come back next year to Bali, and Villa Padma!

“Beyond our expectations” When we first arrived we kept saying 'wow!' over and over, there were so many excellent features we loved about this villa. From the flowers arranged in water in a big pot at the entrance, the fabulous views, the facilities were excellent, many comfortable lounging spots, with little touches we appreciated such as the ipod full of music, a laptop and printer. Great staff that meant we hardly left the place but they were discreet so we had our privacy. We had a wonderful time here.
“Absolutely fantastic” Villa anais was a home away from home. We loved the pool and the massages. My family had a wonderful stay and it was amazing to have the beach so close to the villa.The villa was very spacious and we were well looked after by Made and Komang .The driver Zai was quite good and we saw some good sights with him.
“Paradise” Our family of 5 stayed at Villa Mente for a week - and didn't want to leave. Villa Mente was paradise, so much so that we found few reasons to leave during our week. The infinity pool was perfect - with great views of the hills and the sea. The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the place felt very luxurious. The best part of Villa Mente, however, were Komang and Kadek - the two wonderful "girls" who work there. They were so nice, so helpful, and the best cooks we could imagine!!!
Location was great - although the only issue is that you have to get a car (or rent a moped) to leave - it is high up the hill, which is great for the views, but it also means you have to plan if you want to go anywhere.
All in all, I couldn't recommend Villa Mente enough - fabulous rental!
“Definately one of the best holidays we have ever had!” Staff at the villa are exceptional and make the holiday that bit special. Marvellous Madie, will suprise you with wonderful Indonesian food 6 days a week if you wish. We left it to her discretion to organise our lovely meals including shopping for the supplies at the local market. Although you could have requested your own meals we did not feel it neccessary. She also catered very well for our daughter who is vegetarian. She kept the Villa spotless, changed bedding and towels, organised a massage at the Villa, a boat trip with the local fisherman for snorkelling and phoned our driver. Nothing was too much trouble. Putu our driver had a good sense of humour and was very informative of local culture. He would drive us around all day and made sure we saw the best of Bali. I would recommned the airport transfer. Upon arrival the garden was striking and is maintained by Kadak twice a day including the pool area. All sunbeds are cleaned daily including sweeping and washing down the patio when needed. At night you always felt safe, the night security guard was always there to open the gate when you returned from a night out.
The beach was very clean in the vicinty of the Villa as it was cleaned by Kadak every day. The sea was calm, clear and wonderful to swim in.
The Villa is about 10mins from Lovinia by car so you need transport to visit. Since the town is spread out over a distance of 8km you need a good idea where you are going before hand. We did venture out to some nice restaurants, visited the Bakery and used the supermarket in Singaraja. Overall villa Pantia is a very special place to go on holiday if you want peace and quiet. If you want a lively noisy clubbing holiday this is not the place for you. We loved it and were very sad to leave. You cannot underestimate the importance of Madie and her wonderful cooking, we were going to eat out alot more but it was not worthwhile. If you want to self cater then be aware that there is no oven. 10 out of 10
“Awesome holiday” We had 2 weeks in Villa Pandu. Everything is well organized in a perfect house at a perfect place. The villa is located directly to the black sand beach (nice swimming). Pool, garden and house are nice and clean. We had delicious food prepared fresh from the staff daily. The whole staff is doing a great job to make your holiday perfect. They took always care about us and we felt like at home. Thanks a lot for this beautiful time - wish to come back!!!
“Brilliant” Stayed here during august for 10 days.Can only agree with all the other reviews. Villa is in a stunning location and on the best part of Lovina Beach. Garden and swimming pool are wonderful.The two Bali Benongs allow you to sit and relax. Unni and the staff looked after us so well. Food was lovely and nothing was too much trouble.It was a fantastic holiday and we all returned so relaxed.Can only recommend this Villa.
“Villa Beranda & the staff of Villa Beranda have stolen a piece o” Thank you Jaume for renting your incredible piece of paradise to us. Thank you Wewin for looking after us so well. Thank you for the meals that you prepared for us, thank you for shopping for us. We loved the smells that drifted from the kitchen as you cooked. Thank you Putu (garden & Maintenance) for your never ending smiles and waves, when I think of Villa Beranda, I see your smile. Thank you Putu & Komang (security) we never once felt unsafe with you around. Thank you for running around in the storms & saving our laundry and keeping things dry for us to use the next day. Thank you also Putu (Driver) for all of the great trips and short hauls that you took us on.
An incredibly wonderful place to stay and we hope to be back.
To Wewin we wish you all the best for your family and the new baby when he arrives.
“Unwind in paradise” We just spent 14 days in this oasis of tranquility. We would always recommend the Villa Bossi at Tangguwesi!
The staff is very friendly, and we felt safe with the security. Made is an excellent driver, Kadek and Illuh pampered us with wonderful balinesian food and their laughter. At this point we missed a dining table with more comfortable seats - to rest a little longer after dinner.
We enjoyed the inhouse massage from Kadek with her golden hands, nearly every second day!
In the night we swum under the stars in the refreshing pool and at daytime we appreciated the lush and colourful garden.
there is the opportunity to swim in the sea - the dark beach is right next to the garden- unfortunately there is a lot of garbage in the water - a huge problem everywhere in Bali.
We would love to return!
