“Perfect Holiday - Beautiful Villa - Stunning Setting”
Reviewed 12 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

Wow! What a fantastic holiday. We absolutely loved our stay here. The
Villa is huge, the pictures do not do it justice... there is simply
nothing better than waking up in the immensely comfortable and large
beds of the Villa only to then enjoy a freshly made breakfast on the
terrace overlooking the rice paddies and ocean. Breathtaking! The
staff were wonderful, like magic they appeared whenever we needed
anything, but most of the time we felt like we had the Villa all to
ourselves.

To begin with we used the Villa as a base for exploring Bali and made
several trips all over the area with the driver Made, who had some
hilarious stories to share with us - we enjoyed his company - but
after a little while we found ourselves putting off plans in order to
stay at the Villa and relax all day in sunshine with the lovely breeze
blowing from the sea. If this is your first time coming to Bali let me
tell you it is HOT, but the Villa seems to be in an uncanny spot that
remains nice and cool because of the sea breezes.

The pool is simply lovely, and a very decent size and every morning
lovely Alit - the guy for everything - cleans it so I could not
disagree with the comment down thread more.

Amlapura and Candidasa are both just around the corner so its very
easy to get to anything you might need - which is unlikely since the
staff at Villa Surya will happily do/get everything for you. It is
nice to pop over to Candidasa in the evening for dinner and some
drinks. And I would like to point out that the area in which Villa
Surya is, allows you to really see the "real Bali" as opposed to the
South and places like Kuta with its McDonalds and Starbucks. In fact
from Villa Surya we drove along the remote coastal road up to Amed and
besides the stunning scenic views we really got to see how most of the
Balinese live and were quite the attraction to all the smiling waving
Villagers.

I could not recommend Villa Surya more, it is a beautiful building
with great interiors and spectacular views located ideally for
exploring the island and relaxing. We will definitely be returning to
Villa Surya, thank you so much for a fantastic holiday!

Thanks very much hope you got over your jet-lag. The more you do it the easier it gets. Or driver Made will take you up Agung next time and trips to Renjani on Lombok are only recommended during the dry season and best combined with a trip to the Gilis,means "islands" in Lombokese in Balinese the same is "Nusa" - end of the lesson.

See you again soon. Mark, Petra, Ketut, Alit and Kadek (Wayan is now in charge of security and sleepless nights)

Dear Reviewer,
Many thanks for your somewhat subjective review, if nothing else it goes to prove the honesty of this entire review system.
May we say your stay with us has become the stuff of local legend due in part to your immediate stress testing of the entire villa's electrical system. 5 minutes after arrival you had already turned on every light (including the pool's in the middle of the day!) and with the final edition of the hair dryer(s) the safety in the junction box finally popped. Not satisfied with one "successful" attempt to fox the electrical supply you then repeated it - again "successfully".
Our good driver Made was brought to the edge of madness by up to 3 trips to Kuta daily (round trip time 4 hours) where members of your party became lost overnight and previously ordered and prepared dinners where ignored and forgotten. Upon finally leaving our humble abode for your next destination, guess where... Kuta, you immediately called Made while he was still in return transit and demanded that he return and pick your party up again as you were unhappy with your new accommodation - he respectfully declined.
As to the pool - that was just simple bad luck. Just prior to your visit Bali had had a week of terrible weather with torrential rains and the first actual tornado in Denpasar in living memory. Of course the pool was full of leaves (from our poor frangipani) and much debris had been washed into the pool also. This was all removed as quickly as it was possible to do within the time of your stay.
All of our guests are furnished with our personal telephone numbers (and it is also displayed on the advertisement) for use in any situation that they feel warrants calling us but we received no such call from you and also not from our staff who learned felt that us being in the UK meant we could not do much about leaves in the pool, although we would have welcomed the chance to talk with you about your issues and have now advised our staff to always inform us when any guest seems unhappy or has an issue which is unresolved.
As to our grounds: As stated in the advertisement the villa is placed in the middle of a coconut palm orchard and the local community values very highly the produce of these trees, which we donate freely. As with all trees things like leaves and fruit fall out of them occasionally and therefore we have decided to keep half of the area as producing trees and for the other half that surrounds the villa the trees are cleaned and all nuts and old leaves are removed on a bi-weekly rota. This is a safety measure to protect our guests. Therefore we actively discourage anyone spending much time in the "productive" section of our gardens - but it is still lovely to look at and is a major part of the tropic idyll that is Bali and we are sorry this went unappreciated.
All in all it seems a pity that you had such a poor experience with us and Bali but we hope that in retrospect you may reconsider and give Bali and perhaps us another chance - Made will pick you up, promise!

Many thanks for your kind review and we hope to see you again in the near future. We do feel that to really enjoy the true Bali it is important to get away from the main streets. That isn't too hard since Candi is only 8 minutes away and Amlapure is 2. So for those that want bright lights and karaoke it's all there but Villa Surya is there for those that want to enjoy the tranquility and peace that we feel is the real Bali. We hope to see you all again.

The perfect secluded home for people who love nature and peace. The solitude is wonderful!

One needs a driver and Madee looked after us with great care. Grace is a fantastic cook and we were like one serene warm family. We stayed with three generations, and the staff became one with us.

The house, the garden, the romantic pool, the fish pond and frog-concert at night, the cockcrows in the morning, the feeling of jungle, the beautiful views over rice-paddies and the sea in the distance, it's all breathtaking.

Only very caring people should be renting this precious place. Hope to find it in the same condition when we come next time.
