We rented the Villa's Insulinde and Lumbong the first time in 2014. After having a splendid time in 2014 we booked both Villa's again this year. Perfectly situated at the beach of the Bali Sea with friendly and capable staff who took care of the houses and very good Indonesian dinners every evening. We can recommedn these villa's to everybody who wants to have a relaxed holday in a high level accomodation.
After having stayed 2 weeks in Villa Insulinde, my family and me can only confirm that this has been a fabulous, relaxing, stress less and comfortable stay. The comfort of the villa, provided with all available facilities combined with the services of the attentive and committed staff made our stay unforgettable. Our early morning dwellings in the Bale Belong at the seaside, watching the sunrise over the Bali Sea and local fishermen returning home, were a daily highlight.
If you are looking for the perfekt getaway... Look no further!
Villa Insulinde is a beautifull place, right on the beach. The pool(s) are soo delicious its hard not to spend lots of time in it. Everything is thought of, very clean, amazing staff and really nice hosts who are very hospitable . The garden is spacious with beautifull flowers .
We will definetly be back.
We spend our holiday in the villa Insulinde - no words can describe this paradise. We arrived late in the night and Putu (security) gave us a warm welcome. Every day, the housemaids Putu and Indra cooked wonderful meals. It was a perfect way to explore the regional kitchen. Every meal, even a simple plate of fruits in the morning or homemade spring rolls for lunch, was prepared with love and passion. Furthermore, they kept the villa clean and helped us with making reservations for excursions.
The villa has a spacious tropical garden with a large swimming pool. The gardeners Putu and Kadek took perfect care of it.
The villa is situated in the north of Bali – surrounded by rice fields and directly at the beach. We had an amazing view over the sea, even from our bedroom. It is the perfect place to spend your vacation. We looked for a place to rest but also wanted to do various excursions in order the explore the island. We arranged some day-trips with taxi driver Putu. For example, we went to the Sekumpul waterfalls and to some of the nearby temples. Besides that, we went snorkelling in the West Bali National Park and visited Lovina. All those places were easy reachable within less than an hour driving from the villa.
We can recommend the villa for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday, but also for those who want to see and experience the real Bali.
Our family of 9, (3 generations), selected Villa Insulinde and Lumbung as the pinnacle of our holiday across 3 regions of Bali & it didn't disappoint.
From the point of arrival I kept asking myself "how good is this?"
The set out of the property is quite brilliant & honestly very user friendly too!
Everything you could want is at hand but the creme de la creme was the 5 beautiful staff who couldn't do enough for you.
The 2 gardeners Putu & Kadek do an amazing job with the gardens & their pride is evident. They greeted us each morning with the best "hello's" & always advised us of their departure each evening.
The 2 kitchen staff Putu & Indra were ticking every box possible - we had many a conversation amongst our family after a meal of their wonderful skills to satisfy beyond belief!
Leaving the dining table hungry was impossible - they knew exactly how much food was required down to a tee. Even cold left-overs were eagerly consumed a day later. Beautiful food galore.
Our security Putu greeted us every evening before he started his shift with an infectious happiness that left you inspired.
What with the balmy weather, 2 pools, a beach that wasn't cold plus the ability to have daily hour-long massages....why leave?
A couple of the 20-something boys in our family hired scooters to check out sights local buy we never ate out for any meal, no need to :)
Leaving wasn't easy as we knew we'd not get anything similar at our last destination of our trip.
Highly recommend here with your closest friends or family.
