Thank you so much for the review. It was really great having all of you to stay. You certainly all seemed to enjoy yourselves at our villa and enjoy the breakfasts that Putu cooked for you each morning!! I think the pancakes were a big hit with all of your travelling companions. Please do come and stay with us again. Maybe you didn't realise that there is an additional toilet close by the main living area! I look forward to hearing from you all again soon and having you to stay with us at Villa Puri Purnama. Warmest regards from us all, Paula, Isa and all the crew.
