“Could not have chosen a better place to celebrate my 70th birthday with my family. The staff made it special. Nothing was to much trouble. And the quality of the food preparation was 5 star especially the BBQ evening. We will certainly recommend to our friends.”

“Our stay at Puri Bawana was one of the happiest holidays of our lives. We felt like we were in a private resort but with the friendliness of family-like staff attending to our every need. The food was better than restaurant quality with the added bonus of being able to put leftovers in the fridge for midnight snacks. That was when there were leftovers...the food was quick to go. Putu is an amazing chef! The villa was serviced to a very high standard during our stay with walkways being scrubbed daily, rooms always clean and tidy and fluffy white mats on the floor in the wet areas. The servicing was done very discreetly so it was unobtrusive - almost like a magic wand was waved. We had our children there and they were in heaven. The media room, pool, trampoline, pool toys, table tennis, grass to run on...nothing more was needed. There was also a range of games and books to keep us entertained. There were 14 of us staying and there are so many little nooks and relaxation areas, hidden and visible, that it always felt private, even from each other if we wanted it that way. This villa has the charm of Balinese culture and styling, with the mod cons expected in this price range. Sonos throughout the villa meant we could be our own DJ all day, everyday. Surround sound in the media room meant movie nights were like going to the cinema - gold class if you have something brought by the butler during screening! The absolute best part of staying at Puri Bawana is the staff. They are so lovely. They love the property and it's clear they love their guests. We were reluctant to leave them and have formed friendships which will last. We got married at this villa during our stay and it was more magical than I'd hoped. The sheer beauty of the property was the perfect backdrop for our vows and celebration with 80 of our nearest and dearest. The area surrounding Puri Bawana is still laid back Bali life but with many of Bali's best restaurants nestled nearby, if you know where to look. We can't recommend Puri Bawana villa more highly and hope to return one day. If you have a large group or family, don't think twice about staying here. You will love it! ”

“We fell in love with Bali all over again at this villa! The staff were amazing, in particular Sela and Ngurah and the food that chef prepared was first class. Overall the villa was huge and with 5 families staying there we never felt like we didn't have enough space. This was probably the best family holiday we have had and it was largely due to our experiences at the villa.....THANKYOU”

“Myself and my six girlfriend had the time of our lives. We were treated like royalty and loved every minute. Your staff were so friendly and ready to please. We were so impressed at every level. Thankyou so much. We will be back. A beautiful idyllic retreat. We requested a cooking lesson as the food was so fresh and good we wanted to learn for ourselves and your staff were so lovely and carried out every request with gratitude and smiles. We are very grateful and fortunate to have come across such an amazing place xx”

“Superb villa and even better than the photos suggest. The rooms are all great other than perhaps the kids room/bathroom which is small but adequate. Fantastic staff and their service, attitude and attention to detail easily exceeds a Four Seasons style experience. The bbq dinner by the pool was outstanding and the food and service five star. We all left the villa in tears of happiness and could not have been more pleased with the weekend. Great value and we will be back. Thank You, Rob.”

“We 3 families had a wonderful vacation in Villa Puri Bawana:beautiful and characteristic architecture, amazing living and dining area, pleasant bedrooms, romantic bathtubs, impressive swimming pool, charming flowers and plants, flying birds, jumping frogs, climbing geckoes, fantastic pool side BBQ, and the friendly and professional staff. All the memory will keep in our mind ever and forever!”

“Villa Puri Bawana is ideal for a family trip. Both adults and kids can have a great time. The staff is excellent. Unlike other villas my family and I have stayed in Bali, its neighborhood brings the visitors closer to the locals' life. A walk to Echo Beach is highly recommended.”

“This villa is absolutely beautiful such a relaxing environment, we had our wedding here and the staff at the villa and the wedding planner marketing villas recommended (frank at bali tropical weddings) were just fantastic. Highly recommend Puri Bawana as a relaxing place to stay with friends or for your once in a lifetime event. The villa also did our food for the wedding - we ordered all Balinese and Indonesian food and it was simply amazing, some of the best food we had in Bali. ”

“Our expectations of Puri Bawana & its staff were extremely high before we arrived, and we were not dissapointed. During or two week stay the staff could not be faulted, the service was personal & impeccable. The villa itself was perfect for our large group of 14 (including 8 children).”

“An excellent villa - really well designed and room layout allows for good privacy. Kids loved the pool. Probably the biggest differentiating factor versus other villas in the same bracket was the staff - excellent food, charming people and we were superbly looked after. Absolutely recommended. ”
