Balian Review (Again)
We stayed at this Villa in Balian in April 2014 and couldn’t recommend it enough. Our decision to go to Balian was based on the surf break, the village and to see a completely different side to Bali than the busy tourist areas. We certainly were not dissapointed.
The villa is situation in big grounds and has the most amazing view of the Balian surf break. This is so convenient for doing surf checks without having to get out of bed. A short walk out of the gate gets you access to the sea in a couple of minutes. This meant that we ended up surfing multiple times a day as it was just too tempting not too.
This villa is perfect for surf breaks, located up the coast away from the busy crowds. But is also great for a quiet holiday as it offers a relaxing environment and a great location to explore west Bali from.
The villa is finished to a very high specification, very modern, clean and has everything you need to have a very relaxing stay. The big grounds ensure privacy and quiet and there are restaurants are within walking distance and local shops nearby.
Other benefits that made our stay more comfortable was wifi internet, big TV/DVD player, big pool, outdoor dining and western amenities.
We had an amazing stay at this villa and will definitely be going back when we are next in Bali.

This would have to be the best villa we have ever stayed in. The location is what every surfer wants when they go travelling. From the master bedroom you can check the surf without leaving your bed, and it's some of the best surf Bali has to offer. The layout of the villa is spot on with a massive upstairs lounge room fully equipped with large plasma and surround sound system.
A massive balcony joins the master bedroom and lounge and is the ideal place for a few bintangs after a long day of surfing.
Downstairs has 2 large ensuited rooms and a fully open plan dinning ,kitchen and another lounge.
It's the perfect place for a large group to get together as outside there is a beautiful pool with a perfect bar over looking it, it was a great place to have a few beers and a chat at night. The other villa is right next to the pool and is also massive.
The caretaker Arsa was amazing he looked after this place like his own and we were never waiting or wanting anything, anything we asked for was attended to very very quickly. He kept the place looking beautifully clean and was also very friendly..
I would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely be back again making it an annual holiday destination..
Great work Andrew and crew
I stayed here for a week in October 2013 amazing place.
The views when you wake up in the morning are beautiful you can choose to look at mountains behind you or the surf which is right out in front.
The surf break is a top quality and usually not to crowded unlike other areas of Bali and its a 2 min walk from the accommodation along the river.
if you are looking for somewhere that is quiet and away from the crowds this place is defiantly for you.
There are a number of local restaurants very close by offering quality food and cheap.
The property is built and finished to a very high standard with a separate bedroom away from the main building which is ideal when traveling in a group.
With its own private pool and outside dinning area you can relax after a long mornings surf.
I am planning to go back here again in October 2014 my now favourite place in Bali
