Guest Testimonials

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!

Dear Linda & Karl: Thank you so much for a fabulous stay in your villa. We have had such a relaxing time. Ayu’s cooking was lovely and she even gave Aaron some cooking classes! Putu’s massages were very good.

The Villa is situated in a beautiful spot. In the morning some fisherman walk along the beach. You can see the sun go up in the morning and go down in the evening! The house is cosy, nice and clean. Ayu, housekeeper/manager, has managed everything very well and she is a great great cook!! We loved her food. She also asks what you want to eat and makes it for you. So you have a nice dinner in your “own” house in a beautiful spot and you don’t have to leave. Ayu arranged scooters for us which was nice to go to Lovina. Made, the driver, knows really a lot to tell you about the island. Everything is good and organized. Also there came the gardener in the morning and security in the evening.
Although the villa is 9 km from Lovina, you don’t feel lonely because you can walk to fisherman and there are also different houses. On each side of the house is a villa who are also for renting. So it is like 3 villas together. Every morning we had a nice breakfast and Ayu asked what we wanted to have. She speaks very good English, so she can tell you a lot about Bali.
The Villa is so beautiful as it looks on the pictures and the services are really good. We love to come back and want to explore more from Bali. The north is really nice and quiet. It was really beautiful.

This is a wonderful place and a very nice house. It is amazing to be able to see sunrise and sunset from the same place! We were lucky to have also the full moon and low tide during sunset. Lots of playing on the sandbars, football flying kites and seeing the fishermen coming and going was very special for us. Jules turned 10 years old during our stay. We made a small fire on the beach …. with marshmallows! 2 weeks were just the right time – a small paradise!

Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful house! Unfortunately we are staying here for a too short time! I would love to come back here and stay for at least two weeks! We enjoyed staying in your house, your pool is so nice. You are so lucky to have a beach right next to your villa. We enjoyed catching crabs and going on the boat trip, where we saw 2 different species of dolphins.


Dear Linda & Karl: Thank you for having us! Merci infiniment to have created such a wonderful place!!! Perfection! BEYOND WORDS … This place is much better in reality than in the photos …. Rare perfection! The pool, the relaxing spots, the view, helpful staff …

Nada & Marten | Croatia & Laos

Thank you for inspiring us by sharing your wonderful home. You have incorporated many thoughtful details to make this a very simple and restful holiday – robes, spices, staff, laundry, potable water. Our daughter loved the pool, we loved being a bit out of town. Made has been a great resource helping us plan around rainy season. We come for holidays in Bali every 3 months and this is the most we’ve felt at home. Thanks again …
