What a refreshing idea it was to lodge with 2 other families for our first villa rental in Bali. So 6 adults 5 kids in the one place, well this villa certainly fitted the bill and lived up to most expectations. It has plenty of space, the location is premium and was very clean. The staff are absolutely lovely, helpful and warmed to all our kids. The sound system around the pool kept the ipod batteries draining with all day long playlists. The villa overall is very peaceful and whilst the kids upstairs rooms are tv and dvd packed the parents retreats are maybe lacking a brush of newness, from lighting, to the bathroom it could do with some mods. Also the water out of the showers can be a bit salty. The one drawback, and it may have only occurred during our stay was the hammering from the neighbours new extension, almost complete and the makeshift wind vain whose propeller proved to be a bit noisy depending on the wind direction and power. The villa owner, who is always available, did ask the owner of the wind vain to pull it down after we complained, and they did so without fuss.
I was living in Jakarta and just decided to organize my Birthday Party with some friends in Bali! Was a pain to look for so much offer and so many different price ranges... Finally i booked Puri Dana and was "Puri" Relax!!!
The villa is amazing, the staff is great, flexible and very friendly, they just organized everything we needed and the owner was supportive for all organizations and for pre-courtesy visit to villa by a friend that arrived before time and could check and pay the villa!
The villa it's self has everything you may need... Music for all devices, SPA area for massage, big swimming pool with Jacuzzi and chillout balcony on side and the rooms are absolutly spacious and very well decorated!
The common areas are big enough with swimming pool view and it's great for all people chat by evenning on the sofas... Well it could not be better!
Thanks to all staff and Puri Dana owner to make my birthday so special at the villa!
Cheers and hope to see you next year
My family and I stayed at the Puri Dana for 10 nights and it was truly amazing. The villa is spacious, we were a group of 9 people ranging from 11 - 75, we had so much room to spread ourselves about, you do not feel hemmed in at all. The pool is stunning and again is very roomy. The gardens are spectacular, it's actually kind of hard to believe that Bali is only past the gate, it is that peaceful.
The villa and grounds are immaculately maintained by a very hard working group of people, about 6 people who are on a roster system. we got to know them quite well and they are lovely, they could not do enough to make our stay more enjoyable. Also, if you wish too, you can arrange to have a massage or a beauty treatment done in the villa, (they have a bathroom specifically for this purpose). I wish I had had more time!
Nikko, who is the owner, is an extremely pleasant person and is able to assist you as much or as little as you wish. Seeing as we had all been to Bali before, we were happy to things as they came.
Last but not least of all is the food, what can i say, other than it was soooooo good. You can choose pretty much what ever you like. We had breakfast every morning, up to you what you want. We also had a banquet on two nights, the girls know how to cook an awesome curry, their Randang is delicious. There was so much food, it was crazy. They have a list of menus that you can choose from, they need 24hrs (i think?, bit foggy now on that one!), you pay for the ingredients +20%, pretty good value we believe.
Just to clarify, as I saw one review that said they were expected to tip $245 per day does not make any sense at all. I won't go into details but it is nowhere near that amount, as with most things in Bali, "you pay what you think it's worth", not forgetting that the staff are brilliant.
Free wi fi, free drinking water, big fridge for the Bintang and you r own food, nice big telly with a big selection of movies, upstairs brms had tv's and DVD players, I'm not sure about suites as I was not looking, mini mart about 3 mins walk, smack bang in the middle of Ku De Ta and Potato Head, 5 mins from Seminyak Square, very convenient for taxi.

What a relaxing gorgeous spot..The pool was lovely ,all the rooms had the best quality sheets and pillows basically high standards all round..The staff were gorgeous and the owners very friendly and only there when they were needed also very helpful.The 3 rooms on the bottom are huge and have great bathrooms ,i stayed in the middle room and it was lovely.The 2 upstairs rooms are up a steep staircase and are alot smaller but also very nice,the bonus being that they have dvd players in them(downstairs dont) and apparently protected more from the local noise.Its a great place to super relax and have massages.get the ladies to cook some fabulous meals and forget the rest of the world..Also try the ladies perkedel a local potato gem sort of thing, really delicious ..Thanks 4 a great holiday
Just back from a long weekend at Puri Dana. Have to agree with all the positive reviews so far on the website. This place is amazing! We were a group of thirty somethings and the location was absolutely perfect - super close to Seminyak Square, and all the nightlife, but also a tranquil oasis once you stepped inside the front door of the villa.
The photos on the website DO NOT do this place justice. The pool is incredible, and the furnishings are really beautiful. We were amazed when we arrived that the whole place was just for us - there is tons of space to chill out. The staff were really helpful but unobtrusive, and our arrival dinner was delicious. Definitely recommend getting the massages! Nikko (the owner) was super-fast at responding to emails and giving us all the info we needed.
We can't wait to go back!
Just arrived home from a weeks "Ladies Getaway" in Bali. I'm so glad that Puri Dana was picked as our accommodation. It was just the place for us "40 something's" to have the perfect getaway. A great place to chill and relax, and a great place that is perfectly located for restaurants and shopping. The staff were wonderful, so helpful, yet not intrusive at all as they went about their daily chores. Their cooking was divine, I now wish we'd eaten in more than out. But with so much to choose from in walking distance you just want to try everything.
The rooms are comfortable, great beds and pillows. The pool great! The day beds even better. We had ladies come in every day for massages, how much more perfect do you want your holiday to be! It was a cheap taxi ride into Legian from there for some great market shopping. And a short stroll down to KuDeTah for a sunset cocktail or two.
We had no problems leaving these beautiful and wonderful women a tip for their help and friendliness. Maria and Nicko were very informative on our arrival. The house phone made life easy for when we needed things or to contact them. Whatever we wanted we got, it was awesome.
If a downside, we did have some issues with barking dogs from the neighbours one night, which was a little frustrating, but luckily it was just one night.
I HIGHLY recommend staying at this villa, it's got everything you want in a great location. Can't wait to go back.
Have just returned from Bali and we had 3 fabulous nights at Puri Dana. Most spectacular surroundings and very quiet. Close to shopping and Restaurants. The staff were just wonderful (wanted to bring them home!!) and they were happy to do anything you asked of them. Meals were out of this world. Would highly recommend. We were a party of 8 both Adults and Kids. Nikko's knowledge of the area was also very helpful. Would totally recommend Puri Dana
