Guest Testimonials

This is a great Villa – beautiful home, comfortable rooms, wonderful view, very relaxing. The housekeeper Ayu was extremely helpful and is a terrific cook. She helped set up several activities (dolphin watching, scuba diving, hot springs visit) and even helped with our laundry! The only downside is the beach is small but the wonderful outdoor seating and pool this villa offers made up for it.

We had a wonderful time at Linda & Karl’s Villa. Although we did not meet them in person, I can tell by the condition of the villa and the attentiveness of their wonderful staff that they care very much that their guests have the best vacation possible. Linda has put together a binder full of tips on local sights, things to do, & restaurants near by. It also includes numbers of people to call should you get sick, need a driver, etc. Her villa is thoughtfully furnished with great A/C in all the bedrooms & the upstairs living room (which we missed when we moved to the other villa we booked that did not have A/C in the living room & then we found ourselves congregating in one bedroom!) We enjoyed the large collection of DVD’s for lazy nights in. It is a beautiful property that is very well furnished (beds very comfortable). It is right on the beach but unfortunately there was quite a bit of rubbish around the beach (unfortunately this seemed to be common for all but the more touristy beaches in Bali). However the villa’s beautiful pool made up for that. Again the staff keeps everything in tip top shape they were all very helpful. Ayu, cooks & keeps the house tidy & was also helpful in making dinner reservations & grocery shopping. Mega keeps the grounds & pool sparkling clean while Putu kept an eye on things at night. Just to note, there is little in the way of walking distance so it is best to use a driver to explore Bali. Made, the recommended driver for the villa was very helpful in planning our days. Linda is also very quick to respond to any questions before & during our trip. All in all, a great stay in Bali!

The perfect getaway exists.
Peace and quiet, personal service, lots of privacy and a good internet connection if your kids get bored.
I would do it again.

We spent an amazing 2 weeks at PJR, an ideal place to relax, tour northern Bali and enjoy Balinese cuisine, culture and hospitality at its best. The well maintained, spotlessly clean villa is beautifully situated on the beach. The Staff went the extra mile to make our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. Ayu, the housekeeper made us feel at home from the second we met her, she spoilt us with delicious food and even gave us a cooking lesson. Mega made certain that the pool was sparkling clean at all times and the garden was well looked after. Sangtu had an unobtrusive way of keeping watch at night and we felt very safe at all times. Putu, our driver was always on time and took us competently to our outings, no detour or trip was ever to much to ask for. To sum it up; we were taken care of by a 5 STAR team and could not have wished for better. Our experience exceeded our expectations and we can highly recommend PJR and would love to return.

Thank you for the wonderful Balinese hospitality. Thank you to Ayu, Mega, Putu and Made for being so welcoming and making our stay so comfortable! We loved spending time around the pool, in the hammock – it is simply PARADISE! We explored far and wide – the monkey forest, Ubud, Permuteran beach, beautiful temples and rice paddy fields and canoeing lake Tamblingan! Thank you very much!

I am so happy we were able to come and experience your heavenly oasis. PJR is absolutely beautiful. The birds, the beach, the garden, the house – there are surprises and beauty everywhere. And it is so comfortable! The best food I’ve had in Bali is Ayu’s! Next time I come, I will certainly become her apprentice and get some cooking classes. Puri Jati Retreat is a perfect home base to discover the real Bali. Thank you so much!
