Dear K and L, What a beautiful and serene place you have.. Perfect for relaxing and unwinding… The pool, The bale, The view – WOW! I didn’t even want to leave the villa.  All my tension just melted away. I’m ready to move here forever. It was the best vacation EVER! Thanks for everything. I’ll be back soon.

Dear Karl and Linda, thank you for the amazing time at your villa. When I arrived I was not certified to dive. But not a problem; Karl gave me one on one classes and certified me in the pool. The next day we were out diving the many sites around the area. My favorite was a sunken ship that had a million jacks spinning around. The hospitality was 5 stars! The cook is amazing, blending the Balinese culture into a culinary treat. The beach was finely combed and beautiful. The sunset was picture perfect, setting between the two volcanoes on Java. This is the perfect get away!!!

We enjoyed our stay in your villa so much, and your staff took excellent care of us. Ayu cooked for us every day delicious dishes, so there was no need to go to any restaurant. The villa is spotless clean and really as beautiful as shown on the pictures. We went diving with Malibu Divers, this operator is very reliable and the guides know the dive spots very well. Thanks for unforgettable two weeks, for sure we will be back next year.

Stunning modern design and accommodations. Gorgeous setting right on the Bali Sea which is warm like a swimming pool. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The pool is lap sized and spectacular. The staff (manager/cook, yard/ pool man, and the night security man, were all super nice and helpful. Went dolphin viewing with a fisherman who picked us up at dawn right in front of the villa. Quiet oasis in sometimes noisy Bali, the villa is located at the end of a long dirt road and is situated between 2 other similar villas. My wife and I had a wonderful week at Pura Jati Retreat–a highlight of our month in Bali. Highly recommended.

Dear Karl and Linda, your warm welcome and amazing home made my 61st birthday celebration even more special. We were torn between just hanging out in the fantastic pool, reading and lounging in the bale or going for a dive at nearby Puri Jati. In the end we did all three and had a awesome experience. We will definitely be back!

Karl & Linda, Thanks you for your unmatched hospitality. The villa and its staff know how to make you feel at home and make sure all your needs and wants are met. Puri Jati Retreat really is our home away from home in North Bali and we can’t wait to come back

Thank you for welcoming us to your new start. You are off to an excellent beginning. Ari’s cooking is “killer” (to use a Karl term) and your smiling staff was great. Three mimics on two dives speaks for itself – Wow!
