Amazing villa at an amazing place


October 2017

I just returned from a holiday stay in Villa Betèn Bukit, and I had a marvelous time here. Firstly, the villa is located at a remote place at the end of the street, where literally nothing will break the silence. The garden is beautifully designed full of flowers, and there is a large swimming pool to cool down a bit from the bright sun. The house itself is spacious, with many Balinese details incorporated in its interior. However, the house still provides you with every comfort known in the modern Western world. Secondly, the staff is a major asset to this villa. There are gardeners, guards, a manager & a cook who will always be there for you & make sure your stay is as pleasant as comfortable. We would like to thank Iluh, the cook, & Putu, the manager, in particular as they devoted lots of time to us by cooking us some amazing meals & taking us to the beautiful places around.This brings me to the village itself, Pemuteran, which has managed to keep much of its authenticity & provides tourists with some amazing views on Java (Bali Tower), beautiful beaches (National Park & Dynasty), lots of opportunities to snorkel/dive (I highly recommend Menjangan Island) and many restaurants or small places where they serve delicious traditional food. To conclude, I had a wonderful stay here at Villa Betèn Bukit & I would definitely recommend the villa to my family & friends!

Sincerely Demi

Formidable séjour! A wonderful week at Villa Beten Bukit

Septembre 2017

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Beten Bukit.

The villa itself is very pleasant, very well organized and decorated, clean and bright. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms, half outdoor, original and very pretty.
Outside, it is also beautiful: the garden is beautiful and very well maintained, the pool too, the view of the Balinese mountains unique, anyway, that happiness to relax in the green landscapes of Bali!
But what especially marked us is the kindness, the dedication, and the remarkable work of all the staff. Between Iluh, who will cook you a deluxe breakfast every morning and will cook all the Indonesian dishes (which I highly recommend) as well as European dishes; Putu, the manager, always ready to help you and help you; or Ketut who took care of picking us up at the airport and driving us to several places, they are all great, a big thank you to them all! Thanks to them, the stay is all the more magical and appreciable!

The surroundings of Pemuteran are very pleasant and authentic because little tourist, the Balinese spirit is much more present than in the south! In addition, do not be afraid to get bored because full of activities very easily accessible: snorkeling in the beautiful spot of Menjangan, trekking in Java, walks on the beaches, going out to dinner in the village, etc .. a great little corner of paradise!

In short, a big thank you to Lisette for this great week, I highly recommend!

Nous revenons tout juste d’une superbe semaine à la Villa Beten Bukit.

La villa en elle-même est très agréable à vivre, très bien organisée et décorée, propre et lumineuse. Les chambres sont spacieuses et les salles de bain, à demi extérieures, originales et très jolies.

A l’exterieur, c’est également superbe: le jardin est magnifique et très bien entretenu, la piscine aussi, la vue sur les montagnes Balinaises unique, enfin bref, que du bonheur pour se ressourcer dans les paysages verts de Bali!

Mais ce qui nous a surtout marqués c’est la gentillesse, le dévouement, et le travail remarquable de tout le staff. Entre Iluh, qui vous cuisinera un petit déjeuner de luxe tous les matins et saura aussi bien cuisiner tous les plats indonésiens (que je recommmande vivement) que les plats européens; Putu, le manager, toujours prêt a vous dépanner et a rendre service; ou encore Ketut qui s’est occupé de venir nous chercher à l’aeroport et de nous conduire à plusieurs endroits, ils sont tous formidables, un grand merci à eux tous ! Grâce à eux, le séjour est d’autant plus magique et appréciable !


Les alentours de Pemuteran sont très agréables et authentiques car peu touristiques, l’esprit balinais y est bien plus présent que dans le sud! De plus, n’ayez pas peur de vous ennuyer car pleins d’activités accessibles très facilement: snorkeling dans le magnifique spot de Menjangan, trekking à Java, balades sur les plages, sortir dîner dans le village, etc.. un formidable petit coin de paradis !


Bref, un grand merci à Lisette pour cette superbe semaine, je recommande vivement pour se ressourcer pleinement !


an Amazing and relaxing week

September 2017


“We spent an amazing and relaxing week in Pemuteran. The house is ideally located and surrounded by a gorgeous garden. The staff was extremely friendly and resourceful. They made us feel at home and gave us a lot of useful tips to discover the area. While you can walk to the beach, restaurants and stores from the villa, renting scooters or bikes is a very good option to explore further. Will definitely come back to peaceful Pemuteran and Villa Bukit. Thank you Lisette, Illuh and Putu. ”

With tears in our eyes we left this villa!

August 2017

Dear Lisette,

We have just returned after 3 weeks of travel to Bali.
Your home was our favorite.
It is splendid, ultra clean, very well equipped. Everything is done to make you feel really good.
But what really touched us most was your team. Iloo is the best Bali cooker and the most efficient to store the house, while being extremely discreet to preserve our family intimacy. She taught me how to make the best Bali Nasi Goreng.
Putuh is the most charming manager, warm, smiling, he does everything to make our stay happen for the better. He really likes to get to know the guests.
The gardeners are very smiling and very kind as all the Balinese.
It was with tears in our eyes that we left the house.
Best regards
Laurence and Family

Spacious villa with a beautiful manicured garden

August 2017

Spacious Villa with a beautiful manicured Garden. We loved Pemuteran area, it’s clean beaches and friendly people. Special Thanks to Putu for organizing trips and Illuh for cooking us delicious brekkies/Lunch and or dinner. Responsive Manager. We loved our stay in a more rural/less known part of Bali. Distance to Pemuteran beach was a 25 min walk.

We really enjoyed our stay in this fabulous villa! The staff pampered us and did everything to maximize our holidays and made it unforgettable. The location of the villa is really ideal: a bit remote; in the middle of nature environment, very quite and private, but still on a short distance to the beach and many restaurants!
Pemuteran was for us the perfect location to spend our holidays, authentic, not too many tourists, very social and many things to do in the area.

Second stay

21-7 till 28-7-2017
This was the second time we stayed here. We still love it here and we would come back again.

It is a nice private villa and the staff is amazing.
The house has a great pool and comfort rooms with a fantastic bathroom.

Moreover, the villa is perfect located when you want to go snorkling and diving. We went to menjangan island and had an amazing experience.


To good to be true

May 2014

Oh my Goodness , I don’t even know where to begin writing a review for this beautiful villa, and
I’ve been remiss because of that dilemma.
Fellow traveller, this is an amazing villa. Searching for a special place to stay in the north, after
plenty of stays in the south, I came across Villa Beten Bukit. At first, I honestly thought, it’s too
good to be true, but WOW, it’s exactly what we want.
From my initial contact with Lisettte she was immediately responsive and informative, offering me a
very fair rental price, and I booked directly with her, which was super easy. During our email
exchanges, It was obvious that Villa Beten Bukit is special because it is not just Lisette’s pride and
joy, it’s also her passion and her 2nd home. she even organised scooters for us which were waiting
when we arrived at the villa. It was an unexpected treat that Lisette came to meet us in Legian,
with her driver Ketut. He was unbelievable, getting us up to Pemuteran in super heavy traffic (and
also back to the airport a week later ! ).
Arriving in the villa was a delight. We were greeted by Putu, who was very excited to show us the
property, which is so much more beautiful than any photograph can capture. The gardens there are
truly lovely, with so many birds…, so many! From the masses of tiny swallows who come
each morning and afternoon to take a sneaky bath in the swimming pool to the lovely little water
birds who hop across the water lily pads, it’s all paradise times a kazillion.
Lisette arranged for Illuh to prepare a meal for us as we were coming in the late afternoon, and it
was the perfect welcome. Illuh is a very caring and gentle person, cleaning and cooking in the
most unassuming and mindful way. Her food is delicious, fresh and simply prepared, and she is so
happy to be able to please you. Even the way she laundered and carefully folded our clothes was
so beautiful!
Putu also cooked for us, going out early to the local market to buy us a fabulous fresh fish, which
he barbecued to perfection, a must have meal while you are there. He is very helpful, and just a
phone call away, being very unobtrusive.
The Villa itself was much more than we needed, just my husband and I, so we only used the 1st
bedroom,which was very comfortable, a huge bed, with a mosquito net, and plenty of hanging/shelf
space for our clothes. The ensuite bathroom was great too, open to the stars, but spotlessly clean
and private, as is the entire villa.
You’ll be spoiled for choice (like me) where should you lie down to read a book, or the news on
your phone, or even to take a sneaky nap? Whatever you’re after, it’s all here, lounges, chairs, day
beds, umbrellas, absolutely everything, everything. And don’t get me started on the pool, let’s leave
it at when you get in, you wont want to get out.
Hanging by the front door there are 4 KOSHI WINDCHIMES ( i researched them
once i returned home because they are the most delightful chimes I’ve ever heard. Although they
are a small detail, i think they’re a significant one, because just like this entire villa, they are
understated perfection.
Thank you Lisette for your generous hospitality, and congratulations on creating this impressive
sanctuary, I just hope I will have the chance to return.

We spent three fantastic days in this quiet villa in Pemuteran. The house is incredible, the garden immense, with many places inviting relaxation … Cleanliness impeccable, frangipani flowers everywhere on arrival, a very efficient and smiling staff, led by Putu who will answer to Your requests. Probably the most beautiful villa we have ever rented, hoping to come back one day! Very good communication upstream with Lisette, the owner. If you are looking for a villa to enjoy the wonders of Menjangan, do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed! Anthony
