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
We stayed at Puri Dana for one week in September 2016 (sorry it has taken me so long to get around to writing this) We were a group of 10 adults and 3 children aged 7, 3 and 12 mths. The villa could not have been more suitable for our needs, there was plenty of space for everyone. The staff are amazing and more than happy to accommodate any request. We had a small gathering of about 20 to celebrate my 50th birthday and Nikko and Gusti were extremely helpful in advising of the menu and catering for our party. The food prepared and served was 5 star and there was so much of it! The location is great and only a very short walk to Seminyak Square and the amazing restaurants of Seminyak. The villa itself is exactly what you see in the photos, the rooms are huge, clean and very comfortable. The pool area and grounds are tranquil and once inside the gate you feel a million miles from the craziness of Bali. We all loved every minute of our stay and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you to Nikko, Gusti, Ayu and all the staff at Puri Dana for making our stay feel like a home away from home.....with a lot more luxury! We certainly hope to return again.
Besides a slight mishap with the air conditioner in one of the rooms Nikko couldn''t have been more accomodating. Great time had by all. The location is excellent and I'll definitely look to book here again next time we've got a large group.
