We had a wonderful stay at Villa Beten Bukit. While the villa is certainly remote – about a 10 minute walk up a dirty road to the main strip, and another five minutes or so to the beach – it offers you the chance to relax in the serenity of the beautiful, lush gardens and comfortable house. There seems to be a microclimate in the gardens which kept it cooler, with the pool always at the perfect temperature. Putu, the Property Manager, is easily contactable and was very helpful and friendly – we organised a day of snorkelling and massages by the villa’s pool. Iluh, the Cook, prepared us delicious breakfasts (included in the stay) as well as other meals at an affordable price – we highly recommend the Nasi Kuning for dinner, and the banana pancakes for breakfast. Beds were comfy, aircon works well, bathrooms are spacious and there are many places to sit and enjoy the stillness of the villa’s surrounds. As an added bonus, there are two cute dogs – Toby and Nina. Thank you Lisette, Putu, Iluh and all the staff for a great stay – we’d love to visit again one day!
