“Loved this place”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

A friend living in Ubud recommended Turtle Bay to us, and from the moment we walked into our villa (Kelapa, the "honeymoon" villa) I knew we would love it. A gorgeous setting right on the ocean, absolutely beautiful, spacious, rustic, authentic villa with a private pool, set amongst gardens, rice terraces and stunning nature. Our entire bathroom was outdoors - shower, tub, sinks etc (toilet behind a privacy screen) - such a pleasure to wash up outside in the warm air while listening to the waves crashing. Although luxurious in its own way, it is still quite rustic. The waves crash pretty loud at night and although we had no trouble sleeping, our friends in the villa next door had their whole place rattling, which scared our 13 yr old god daughter. I would agree as they recommend on their website, this is more of an adult place, not for kids under 12. The food was all made to order, fresh, organic, and the staff was about as friendly and accommodating as you can imagine. The manager Made is great - so nice, helpful and easy. Also, they have an amazing masseuse named Tonno who we had come a few times for evening massage - what a great way to end the day! One thing to note is that while Turtle Bay is on the ocean, you can't really swim there and there's no beach to lay on - hence the private pools, patios and lawns. But White Sand beach is just a 10 min drive and they'll drop you there whenever you like.

Turtle Bay admidst rice terraces & two huge volcanoes continues to improve in every way...and yet it was always perfect! The carved teakwood buildings take one back to a time when Bali was was more natural. New bedding & little touches to redecorate are lovely! The food was excellent, mainly organic, fresh out of their own gardens to their kitchen! What a joy in a world that drowns it foods in pesticides! Fish is freshly caught each day. Fresh juices available daily.

To sit on ones own private beach watching the endless waves....total relaxation. Two salt water
swimming pools to cool off in. The staff & the amazing owner, Emerald, take care of your every
need. Do take the tour through the rice patties & the amazing water palaces! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Be certain to book a massage....most inexpensive & amongst the best in the world!

Turtle Bay Hideaway might not be the most luxurious, but it is definitely one of our favorite in Asia. It is all about nature, kindness and good taste. I loved the way Made and his team treated us. Privacy. All they do is to help enjoying your stay, you, in a perfect villa, in front of a perfect sea. The waves, the sea breeze, the wind, the food (most comes from the organic garden nearby - everything from the menu is not always available, and this is a good sign!) and, again, a perfect team to organise all this just for you. It is a remote place, and this is precisely what we loved in here. Forget crowded cities, noisy cars & scooters, crappy tv channels. Grab a good book, and just enjoy a lovely diner near the swimming pool watching the breaks on a sunset.
We'll be back, and we will stay a week, a month if we can ;-)

Note 1: we arrived early morning (like 5am...), and Made allowed us to sleep few hours in the family villa which was free, waiting from our villa to be ready. We appreciated. Really.

Note 2: i read comments about rusty doors, wet beds. This is really not that bad. And this has to be a bit anyway, when you are so close to the ocean. Does not spoil anything of the experience.

Room Tip: Kelapa was amazing. Family (Pandan) was very nice too. And I guess Jepun is just as nice. They are a...

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Villa Kelapa for our honeymoon.

It was quiet, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing, just what we needed after the hectic wedding schedules. We loved that it was a distance away from the touristy parts, so it's a lot more peaceful and idyllic. The view was amazing; blue, blue waters, strong breezes. The food was wonderful. We were very well fed during our stay. We were very content in staying in by the pool, and not do any touristy things. It was the best holiday we've had so far.

The staff were friendly and very helpful, making our stay extremely enjoyable..

Thank you Mr Made and your team for making our stay memorable and we look forward to going back again.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is very private and quiet.

We have just had a wonderful 4night stay at Turtle Bay Hideaway,, the perfect wind down after hectic Seminyak (don't need to go there again!) Our accommodation in Mandala Suite was beautiful, the food, fantastic and fresh, possibly the best we have had in our various trips to Bali. The location was beautiful. As with any accommodation venue, it is the staff who make it special and we can honestly say the staff made it this time! Congratulations Made, you have a great team and made us feel very welcome and at home. We would not hesitate in recommending Turtle Bay Hideaway as a special place to unwind and relax.

What more can I say? From the very first night of mie goreng through the final fond farewell at the airport, we were in excellent hands during our entire 2 week stay. The four of us shared the exquisitely decorated two bedroom villa for our first visit to Bali. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on subsequent visits. TBH was nicely situated to take advantage of the ocean breezes so no mosquitoes at all and it kept the temperatures ideal. From our window in the well appointed bathroom we could see magnificent Mt. Agung and from the veranda we could lie back and survey the starry skies full of shooting stars. The service was kind and attentive and the food was fresh and delicious. Another plus was the infinity edge pool which I could have spent all day in (and some of us did). The grounds were beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed taking some of the small paths in the environs to walk the rice paddies and the seashore. There is also a spacious common area on the ground level with lots of comfortable seating. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Best place so far in Bali and I have lived in Singapore 20 years so have been to Bali more than i can remember.

When you need peace and time off away from the rat race and the nonsense, this is the place to go. I rather keep it to myself instead of sharing the word, cause in a way I want TBH to stay as pristine and "energetically" unpolluted as it is now.

A must for those who think Bali has become the Costa del Sol or the Acapulco of South East Asia. At TBH You will make peace again with Bali, its nature, its people and its spirits.

Enjoy
