Just home from celebrating my 60th Birthday at the Villa.
The whole experience from enquiry to booking and finally staying was very professional. All questions during the process answered promptly by Nikko.
Pickups from 3 different flights all went to plan.
Villa itself was lovely. near to all the bits of Seminyak we grew to prefer. Seminyak Square, Ku De Ta , Sea Circus for example.
My group loved the staff who could not be bettered. Booked a guitarist through Nikko for my party night and he provided us with some great singalongs and lifted the tempo. We used their drivers for 2 full day trips. Yet again zero issues. He was always early, good fun and informative. Took us to lunch in a lovely restaurant near to the Rice Terraces.
Will always use when I can get a large enough group.
Great location, excellent service, brilliant cooking, refreshing pool. A great place to stay that we would recommend to anyone and we'd book again.
I hired Villa Puri Dana for two weeks as a venue for two, week long, yoga retreats. Everything from the very first exchange of emails was a positive experience.
Nikko was incredibly communicative, he responded quickly with an abundance of helpful information to make the retreat planning so much easier on my side.
Our clients loved the actual villa with its large pool and quiet grounds, describing it as a little oasis hidden amongst the buzz of Seminyak.
The Staff were amazing. The food that was prepared for us was delicious and every request was met with a smiling face and a can do attitude. There was no problem catering for specific dietary requirements such a gluten and dairy free.
The Villa is close to the beach with great shopping, cool coffee shops and bars and restaurants which was ideal for those who wanted to get their shopping in.
Nikko was incredibly helpful with arranging excursions for our guests including a boat trip, day trip to ubud, hike up Mount Agung (the personal highlight for me) and anything else that was required.
All in all I have no complaints, I would definitely book Puri Dana again and recommend it.
For the sake of balance for anyone wanting to book the venue for a retreat I would just explain there is no yoga shala but we were easily able to use the decked front porch for 11 students and 1 teacher.
Ensuite bathrooms in 3 of the rooms were quite open plan but there was a private bathroom off the dining area for anyone requiring more privacy in a room share.
It truly was an amazing week! We loved our stay.
Puri Dana was a wonderful haven in Seminyak for our holiday. The villa easily catered for four adults and five older children (ages 12-19). The outdoor areas, including the pool and gazebo, are spacious and comfortable and ensured a lot of relaxation!
The location is fantastic, with the beach, restaurants, cafes and shopping all very close. And even with such a central location it's a very peaceful place.
Owners Maria and Nikko couldn't have been more helpful and responsive. They clearly have a deep knowledge of Seminyak and the surrounding areas, and had many good recommendations for places to eat.
Puri Dana is blessed with exceptional staff. Wayan, Ketut and the other ladies were very friendly, the villa always looked good, and they are excellent chefs. Whether it was a western style burger or Indonesian food, they turned out first rate meals. On our last evening they prepared a wonderful Indonesian feast for all of us, which was a great way to finish our stay.
We were all sad to leave!
We've had a wonderful time. Close to beaches, restaurants, and the beating heart of Seminyak, the Puri Dana has been great sanctuary to spend 7 days
while we explored Seminyak and Bali.
Owners Nikko and Maria couldn't have been more helpful and responsive. Their passion for Puri Dana and Seminyak more generally was very evident.
Our group of nine were completely spoilt night after night by the ladies running the villa who cooked amazing food and traditional Indonesian dishes.
On our last night they cooked us an Indonesian feast that was simply spectacular. Restaurant quality dishes.
Your biggest problem with staying at the Puri Dana will be trying to choose whether to stay in or go out to eat. Not a bad problem to have.
All in all this is a wonderful villa and we'd recommend strongly.
Our group of 3 families spent 5 nights at Puri Dana last week. The villa was perfect for us... cosy rooms and a lush garden and fab pool for the kids. But the staff are what made the stay. Insisting on making the evening cocktails and doing all the shopping and cooking including finding some special beers and soft drinks we wanted but were hard to find. It was all such a treat. thanks!
Fantastic set up for our family of 7 adults and 6 kids with more than enough space , and a short walk to beach shops and a plethora of restaurants. Outstanding staff , all the ladies couldn't do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible , lovely cooked bfast at anytime you wish. So peaceful in such a busy area of Bali. Not looking forward to leaving today.... AMAZING STAY
