Reluctant to review this property , like a Surfer who finds a new uncrowded wave never retells it's location , keeping the code of silence for fear of maddening future crowds , this property is similar in comparison to finding a wave dedicated to local knowledge only . This property / staff / host / facilities was brilliant for what we as a family / friends group were looking for. Long time regular visitors to Indonesia, our group also consisted of local residents of Bali ( 6 staying but our days had up to 15 day guests), ( all experienced and sponsored Surfers) age group between 16- 48yrs. We wanted a 4 day break somewhere to relax , surf, enjoy good food and timeout with each other away from the chaos of mainstream Tourist Bali. This small village is ideal. The property is large, spacious, warm and inviting, unobtrusive staff, fantastic large crystal clear pool, beachfront position, incredible host whom seems to know exactly when, what where you need something. Driver with car/ luxury large seater at your beck and call. Food whenever you so desire , home-cooked or order in , both were excellent and as we are local food lovers, we enjoyed some of the best local food experienced in 25 years of Indonesian visits. For Surfers , it is great wet season swells at your doorstep and with Keramas a short walk or sprint by car down the road , it's easy to get a wave and if the crowd gets hectic at Keramas etc , go home and enjoy a surf at your doorstep . The beauty of this villa is "no...you are not in the centre of Sanur".....that is its beauty... But if you want to hit the tourist spots it's an easy chauffeured drive or self-drive into the main heart of Sanur to appease any desire of shopping/ nightlife/ restaurants etc and then return to your sanctuary of beautiful comfortable beds with the waves breaking sounds sending you off to sleep. Komune Resort is a bonus down the road for a great restaurant / pool/ cocktails/ to change the scenery if you so desire. We Thank Paula and Staff for a fantastic, fun , relaxing, stay and for bringing on the swell . Great waves, food, and staff who went out of their way to ensure all comforts were met. We booked Master Poolside Suite , x 2 Beachfront Studios ( these are large and can sleep 6 if you are cost-saving or have kids whom you want in your room with you) and we were given exclusive use of the property. We will definitely return and A huge Thankyou to Paula and staff for great memories and friendships made. We hope to see you all again soon. R and A and family/friends .

Dear R and A. What can I say except that you brought me close to tears with this beautiful, heartfelt and detailed review. Both of you and your extended family were a great pleasure to have stay in our Villa. The Staff really enjoyed meeting you all and looking after you. Our Village is now really "on the map". There are so many wonderful places/venues around here to enjoy together with the fabulous panorama and the great surf (as well as the swimming beach). The surf beach here used to be called "The Secret Surf Beach".....not any more!! We are all looking forward to seeing you again really soon. Once again, thank you for this beautiful, this amazing review. Paula, Isa and all the "crew" at Villa Puri Purnama

“Wonderful villa and staff, quiet location but ideally situated for outings”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We booked this villa with a group of friends, 3 families with small children and booked 4 of the 5 very spacious rooms in the villa (we actually thought we booked them all but luckily the last one was not rented). Therefor we had the whole villa for ourselves which made it very private and pleasant. The villa, the pool, the setting on the beach and the staff were all wonderful. Balinese (and Continental) meals could be ordered a day before and they were all very good - we even had fresh lobster and tuna straight from the sea. The villa is quietly located but ideally situated for outings all over Bali. The availability of a driver + van at the villa was a big plus. The driver knows many nice and interesting places. The closely located beach club Komune is a bliss, 7 mins drive by car, but even better reached by a 20 mins walk over the beach. All in all a good choice if you are looking for the luxury of a hotel but the privateness of a villa.

Thank you for your lovely review. We and all the staff were more than happy to look after the three lovely families and ensure that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year vacation at Villa Puri Purnama Bali. The Komune Beach Club/Restaurant/Bar is very popular with our guests and is a reasonably quick walk up the beach (around 20 minutes) or just around 3 minutes by car. Also, I am pleased that you took advantage of the delicious fresh lobster and fish that "appear" at our door on almost a daily basis (according to the weather conditions). We certainly do not "want" for wonderful, fresh seafood at our villa. When this booking was first made we only had four bedrooms available but recently (15th December 2013) we released a fifth bedroom for rental. Yes, you most certainly did book the entire villa and the extra bedroom would not have been rented to anyone else, it was just a bonus, additional room for you to choose your four rented bedrooms from. Once again, thank you all so much for coming to stay with us and we certainly hope to see you again in the near future. Thank you all so much for your generosity with tipping our staff - they are very grateful. Also, if you require any further assistance with the Kalimantan Orang Utan trip, please let me know. We are, as you know, only too happy to assist where we can. Warmest regards from us all at Villa Puri Purnama in Bali.

Thank you both so much for staying with us. I know where you came from to stay with us and the day-to-day stresses that you both must endure and I can say that it really warms my heart that we were able to provide you with the kind of vacation that returned you with new vigour. Yes, we do value our guests and we really enjoy looking after them and making sure they have everything they want, that we are able to provide. I can say with all honesty that we are really looking forward to seeing you both again. I went up to the Komune Beach Club the other night with a couple of guests and thought of you both. Warmest regards from me and all the crew here at Villa Puri Purnama and we all wish you the very best of the Season and for the New Year. Come back soon........Paula, Isa and all the staff.

Thank you so much for the review. It was really great having all of you to stay. You certainly all seemed to enjoy yourselves at our villa and enjoy the breakfasts that Putu cooked for you each morning!! I think the pancakes were a big hit with all of your travelling companions. Please do come and stay with us again. Maybe you didn't realise that there is an additional toilet close by the main living area! I look forward to hearing from you all again soon and having you to stay with us at Villa Puri Purnama. Warmest regards from us all, Paula, Isa and all the crew.

“It was such a relaxing place!”
Reviewed 11 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We have had the most wonderful 5 days at Puri Purnama. Our only regret was not having moved here earlier during our stay in Bali. The location is perfect; our accommodation was
fantastic. The staff could not have been more helpful and attentive.
We are determined to go back in the not so long future and we would like to thank Paula and Isa for their hospitality.

“warm, serene, and beautiful”
Reviewed 8 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The Villa is a hidden treasure and our time there was simply wonderful! Paula, the owner, made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. The property itself is stunning, with beautiful views, landscaping, and furniture. The rest of the staff was also warm and gracious, and helped us organize various day trips and services. The meals were fresh and tasty, and accommodated to our dietary preferences. I would happily stay at this Villa again!

Thank you for your lovely review. I am very grateful you took the time to write this for us. All of us here at Villa Puri Purnama do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable, happy and well-fed! We want our guests to feel "at home" when they are staying with us and we are pleased that you felt this way from the minute you walked in our door. Also we very much look forward to seeing you again in the near future. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. I do enjoy assisting our guests with their adventure and sightseeing activitivies. There is so much to do within minutes of our Villa. You would love the new Beach Club/Restaurant/Bar, called KOMUNE, closeby at Keramas Beach. It is a great hit with our guests!! Once again, thank you. Our very warmest regards, Paula, Isa and all the crew at Villa Puri Purnama

“Bali at its worse”
Reviewed 3 October 2012 for a stay in April 2012

people found this review helpful

Bali is a magic island and we have been there many many times and have experienced some of the best hotels in the world while there. For this trip, since we were going to go with our very small children (then 4 month old and 22 month old) we thought that it would be best to rent a villa to have a more private and relaxed experience and try to get some baby sitting while there.

I use trip advisor religiously so looked extensively in Sanur for a villa that would be child friendly, and close to the beach and at the same time could provide some help with the kids. The ones that I was interested were all fully booked. Then I found Villa Puri Purnama and I thought that I have found The place. I was slightly concerned by the 17 min distance to Sanur, but thought that a 20 min ride would be ok if all the rest worked.

I approached the owner. She confirmed availability for a whole week that we were planning to stay and was super responsive to any question we asked about the villa reassuring us that it was a very child friendly place and very good value for money. She asked to be paid 100% in advance. We did. I never saw a contract (even though trip advisor strongly encourages to revise it) but thought it was probably nothing to worry about (I had never rented a villa before and will only do it from now on if i personally know someone that has stayed there. I can't believe i trusted all the great reviews that this place had).

Well, everything ended up being quite horrifying and nothing worked (at all):
- To start with the place is in the middle of nowhere and good 35-40 min drive from Sanur. Not 17.
- The house is DIRTY.
- The cottage bungalows are big time sub standard, and have nothing to do with the villa that is being advertised. It is built from very cheap materials to the extent that the beams in the ceiling are not even regular nor parallel!.
- The place it’s not child friendly, it’s actually quite dangerous. Lots of ponds, little stairs, etc. and impossible to use a stroller to go from A to B.
- The hot water in the bungalows does not work properly (while this may not be a problem for adults in a tropical country, it is a problem with babies)
- The food is terrible. They use super cheap ingredients from wholesale supermarkets. They give you huge quantities though.
- The house has dogs wondering around – including during meal times
- Etc.

Want more?

After the second night that we spent there, we approached the owner to tell her about some of our concerns such as that the food had not been good, that we would like to eat without dogs being around us and that the hot water in the bathroom was not working. She took our complaints really badly and started provoking us to the extent that within minutes we were having a huge argument and gave us 30 minutes to leave her place.
We had paid 100% in advance of 8 days stay and had spent only 2.

We found ourselves on a Saturday morning with 2 babies, a friend that had come from Jakarta to see us, her daughter and a reasonable amount of luggage, in the middle of nowhere, with no transport and no place to stay.

Thanks to our friend that speaks fluent Bahasa we were out of there in no time, and ended up in REAL Sanur and had a wonderful week!

What is beyond me is how someone in this business can ask you to pay 100% of the stay, throw you out within 2 days and keep all the money with her. We are all humans and we have different standards, experiences, and the right to disagree, no problem. She may not have liked our complaints, fine, but if you are minimally honest you return what it is not yours !!! (i.e. the 6 days we paid for and she kept to herself).

Not happy with throwing us out and keeping the 6 days rent, the next day she send me a VERY disturbing email insulting our whole family…

I would not recommend this place to ANYONE. It was an awful experience.

This guest stayed at our villa more than 7 months ago and has already written a "review". I find it apalling that one guest can write as many reviews as they wish. These guests came to our villa and then returned for a second stay. I have already responded to their previous review, in total. The behaviour of these guests was appalling and I reported the physically threatening behaviour and foul, abusive language to the village security. Our villa is clean and well-managed. I am extremely upset that people like these can write whatever they want, whenever they want. What is the reason for repeating a bad review, some many months later unless of course they wish to try to discredit all the great reviews we have had from many, many guests who love our villa. I am sorry that these people do not have more to do than continually harass us and indeed lie. I have no more to say about this matter.
