“An Oasis of Luxury in Beautiful Eastern Bali”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I would recommend Villa Surya to anyone, particularly those with a bit more time on their hands (i.e., more than a weekend) and a desire for more than the resort beaches of Kuta and Sanur have to offer.

The villa itself is gorgeous - two inviting pools set in a garden environment conceived and maintained with great care. The two suites, the poolside (ground floor) and mezzanine (upstairs) are both large, with comfortable beds, beautifully appointed bathrooms and plenty of living area. There is also a large living and dining area and kitchen under the mezzanine suite. The property is clean, and the website did not fully do justice to the setting and the view of rice paddies extending to the sea, to the beauty of sitting by the pool and watching the sun rise.

More importantly, the web cannot truly convey the friendly welcome and homey atmosphere of Villa Surya. Mark and Petra - the owners - live nearby and are very helpful in suggesting activities to make the most of what eastern Bali has to offer. Our two kids - age 4 and 2 - fell in love with Mark and Petra and with the villa staff (who are extremely friendly and welcoming), and had so much fun exploring the grounds and learning about local plants, animals and customs.

Villa Surya is located in a quiet, village setting, a couple of hours by car away from the congested resort communities of the southern part of the island. However, it is still just a 10-minute drive to a modern supermarket, 15 minutes to the restaurants of Candi Dasa. And eastern Bali has a wide variety of great activities on offer - from trekking and white water rafting to swimming, surfing and diving. Staying at Villa Surya, we could pack out days with fun, and then retreat to a relaxed and welcoming home environment. Perfect!

As guests we give you 6 stars.

It was a real pleasure for all of us to meet and greet you and your lovely family. Most kids you see nowadays are stuck in front of a flatscreen of some sort and it was so good to see the kids really adventure around the villa meeting all the people and creatures of Bali and just have a wonderful time from sun up (they got up before the sun did most mornings!) until sundown with breaks for sightseeing, swimming and well earned naps in between. We had to revise down our ideas that travel is only meaningful for children approaching teenage because of them.

You and your wife braved the roads of Bali in a rental and had a good experience and the freedom to go and do whatever your desires dictated. It was wise to occasionally take Made our driver for the longer trips to save up your energies for the kids and that all important sightseeing. The balance was correct.

Please come and see us again when the civets have grown and are running free.

“Authentic Bali”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

As a frequent visitor to Bali, Villa Surya and its surroundings delivers a taste of Bali far away from the maddening crowds. Meet real Balinese, be spoilt by the friendly staff and explore east Bali.The Villa was comfortable, clean and the service was faultless. The owner provided plenty of local knowledge and was happy to assist with arranging visits to ceromonies, shopping etc. Great place to relax and chill out.

“Wonderful Villa in Quiet Location”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks in Bali, the first week of which was spent at Villa Surya. What a great experience, we had the holiday of a lifetime due in no small part to the staff at Villa Surya. We had not seen our boys for two years and the villa provided an ideal and luxurious setting for our reunion.

We all agreed that we had never felt so well looked after. Mark is a wonderfully kind and entertaining host, though I think he might had had kittens if he'd known in advance we were thinking of heading off up the mountain! The staff were unflaggingly helpful and charming, Katut's cooking is the best in Bali. She also kitted us all out from her family's wardrobe so that we could experience various local event suitably attired. I have seldom looked so elegant. She also took my son on the back of her Vespa so that he could watch the world cup with her family at 3.00 am. Beyond the call of duty indeed! Made the driver was always helpful with his recommendations, and his suggestion that we tackle Mount Agung in the middle of the night certainly made for the most memorable experience of our holiday!
We loved the Villa with it's outdoor showers and beautiful beds, we loved the squeaky lizards and the turtle who lives by the pool, the coconut palms swaying in the moonlight, but above all we loved the gentle and humorous staff to whom I extend a big thank you.

You were a lovely group and it was a great experience for us all - you allowed us to share in the joy of your reunion and the pleasure you all got from seeing the intimate side of Bali (yes, cremations are very interesting and dare I say it, they can and should be fun).
Don't get me wrong Kuta, Sanur, Legian and Nusa Dua, the more touristy places here on the island are great for those that are just looking for "fun in the sun" but it's very rewarding for us to find a group that are willing to embrace the entire Bali experience from climbing Agung in the middle of the night to catch the sunrise to wonderfully long massages on the beautiful White Sandy Beach or in the privacy of the villa - they kind of go together, don't they? Glad you enjoyed the grub too - Ketut was impressed with your ability to handle (and even ask for more) spicy Balinese sauces.

Ketut, Alit, Kadek and I all wish you the very best (Cheech and Chong the cats too!)and hope to see you all again soon. Oh and thanks for the great review.

We've just added 2 more bedrooms in a separate guest house on the property along with an extra swimmingpool too so next time you can bring the grandkids...?

You and your family seemed to love their time here on Bali and the kids are of an age when they really got something out of the fantastic cultural and natural experiences that are all around us here in Paradise Bali. Thanks for sharing your artistic and ship knowledge with us and the decorations to the new Villa Candra will take your suggested form - Bamboo. You are all welcome back anytime.

So great to hear from you again and many thanks for the fantastic review. We really enjoyed having you and the others and please stop in again and spend some more time in Paradise.

Your private Yoga lessons were the start of a great trend here at Villa Surya - we now have most of our guests taking part and just loving the intimacy that Kawi brings to the expercises.

Hope you are all well and looking forward to your next trip.

Mark, Kadek, Ketut and Alit all say "Om Swastiastu" (may your gods be with you)

“We had an amazing family holiday in a fabulous place with amazing people”
Reviewed April 14, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We wanted to experience the real Bali and have a family holiday we all enjoyed and that is exactly what we got! Villa Surya is beautiful and the staff warm and welcoming. The white sand beach, just a 10 min drive away provided relaxing and lazy days by the beach. We hired a car for part of the holiday and a driver at other times. Both worked equally well. Villa Surya would work equally well for families or couples. If you are looking for night life this is not the place for you. If you are seeking a fun, cultural Bali experience, it does not get much better!

We are all so grateful for your kind words of praise. It was lovely to meet you, your partner and the two lovely little girls.

Some people come to Bali looking for peace and relaxation, some want adventure and partying, others are looking for cultural discoveries or just plain love (Eat, Pray, etc.).

You guys got it all!

And if I could just bottle what you brought I would pass it out to every guest that we have.

Helping you and your family to make each day of your stay special and filled with new and wonderful experiences is one of the most rewarding things we have ever done.

It was pure pleasure seeing the kids try their best to imitate Ketut's professional weaving of the day's offerings or helping in the kitchen and learning some Balinese cooking arts.

You enjoyed the help and instruction of our private Yoga teacher as your partner was running up and down Mount Agung.

There's still lots more to do so please come and visit us again - Alit, Ketut, Kadek and I say "Om Swastiastu".
