Guest Testimonials

We stayed for one week at Villa which was an unforgettable experience. The warm welcome by the staff, the amazing entrance, the luxury of the villa, the design, the comfortable beds, the kindness of the personal, was just surpassing all our expectations. The large swimming pool, the wonderful garden, the various relaxing areas-all just a dream.

Hi Linda and Karl, Have had a very restful time here at Puri Jati Retreat and yes, your staff have been wonderful and helpful. We dived at Menjangen Island, visited two waterfalls, the Lake Temple, a Coffee plantation and Hot Springs. Made is a very good driver and Ayu cooked us some memorable and tasty meals. Your pool is very refreshing too! Also a great movie selection! We are also Matt Damon fans. Thanks again for everything. We leave tomorrow morning so this will be a beautiful dream!

Hi Linda, We had a great time at Puri Jati…your home is absolutely lovely and everything worked out very smoothly. Made was very helpful and attentive and took care of all our transport needs. Ayu is downright adorable and a very talented cook. We had a great time going shopping with her.  Both the security guard and the gardener were very friendly when we saw them. All in all, we had a great time in Bali and look forward to returning in a few years time. Thank you again for such a lovely stay!

Dear Karl & Linda: Thanks so much for opening your lovely home to us – we so enjoyed our stay here. We made several excursions with Made – temples, waterfalls, monkeys …. and, of course, the most beautiful rice terraces in Bali! Went diving 2 days with Malibu Divers, over to Pulau Menjangan – it wasn’t Lembeh, but it was awesome! Made drove us there so we could visit a temple along the way and a turtle hatchery! Ayu arranged a lovely masseuse who came nearly everyday – heavenly! The best was Ayu’s home cooking – it’s so much nicer to stay in and relax with her amazing local meals than be in a restaurant. She is a fabulous cook and lovely to be around. Again – thank you so much for sharing your lovely home – hope to see you on a dive boat again some time.

Dear Linda & Karl: Thanks a lot for the wonderful days in your villa! Although we decided last minute to come to your house, everything was easy-going, from our pick-up in Amed to the airport transport at the end, with your very knowledgeable driver, Made. We enjoyed exploring this part of Bali by travelling with motorbike, went up the mountains, visited small villages, had a nice trip to Munduk ….. Ayu’s cooking is very delicious – thank you Ayu!!! Ayu also arranged a massage in the Bale twice. The masseur is skilled and knows what to do (which is not usual everywhere in Bali). I’m a physiotherapist myself and I really recommend this masseur to future guests – ask for Wati). Thanks also for the possibility to use your TV and DVD’s, books, magazines.

Dear Linda & Karl, we so enjoyed every aspect of staying here, it was wonderfully relaxing. To be able to swim in sea or pool (which was so clean and clear all the time, thanks to Putu) was just delicious. Also delicious of course was Ayu’s food, we ate something different and delicious most days and she, as well as Made and both Putus, made us so welcome and were very cheerful. We loved the places Made took us to, from snorkeling to rice paddies and coffee plantations – very informative and rich. The massage Ayu organized was sublime – such an incredibly thorough and skilled masseur, thank you, we leave recharged and long to be able to return again. We’ll also recommend your villa and staff highly to our friends and relations.

We LOVED your villa, a very restful place. For us it was so peaceful and ZEN like. Made was wonderful and did everything we asked of him. Ayu is dreamy and I nearly cried to say goodbye to her. She is a fantastic cook! I stayed in the pool room closest to the water, I cannot believe HOW close you are to the water, the sound is dreamy….. Loved seeing the local people on our run and some new towns for me.

Dear Linda & Karl, Congratulations for your very beautiful house and your very nice staff. Everything was OK during our holidays in Lovina. We will remember this place with a lot of good feelings and pleasure. Thanks, Ayu, for your very delicious cooking and especially Thanks very much to Made for his friendly feeling – you are a good man and we will remember you. Finally, thank you all so much and we will talk about the villa with our friends when we get back to France.
