It’s really like the pictures – like a paradise. Also very nice stuff and good informations about the area + activities.
This is hands down the most beautiful place I’ve rented on Air BnB. Incredibly spacious and sun-filled home with amazing pool and gardens. Super comfortable bed. The property is located in a very nice part of Bali, with fewer tourists. Wish I had booked additional nights…
The ideal hideaway in beautiful Pemuteran. Set against the backdrop of the mountains and the most incredible sea-view from the pool terrace you could not ask for more. Such a peaceful location and stunning landscaped gardens. Superb staff and food. Amazing shuttle buggy to take you to the beach. Fantastic location to get to Menjangan Island from for a day’s snorkelling or diving. Already booked to go back next month!
We’ve stayed for a week at this beautiful villa and enjoyed very much the great location, nice (quite) environment and the wonderful service. The shuttle service from the villa to the beach and village was very easy. A short call to the manager and they were available to pick us up. The food was very nice. Great breakfast and the choices for lunch and dinner were extensive. All the food was freshly prepared in the villa and was very tasty. The children liked the private pool very much and (of course) the fast WIfi. Also the snorkling trip to the Menjangan Island was a wonderful experience. Tomorrow we go to our next accommodation in Bali, but I don’t know if any accommodation can meet the level of this villa.
J’ai eu envie d’offrir un endroit incroyable à notre famille, qui resterait à jamais gravé dans nos mémoires en pensant à Bali…et bien c’était encore mieux qu’imaginé! Des 3 villas (2 à 3 chambres et 1 à 2 chambres), nous avons eu la Jeda Villa avec son incroyable jardin, sa piscine tout aussi belle et ses 3 chambres (villa réservée 6 mois avant pour juillet en haute saison!). A 1km du bord de mer, avec un peu d’air, le calme (on n’entend presque pas le muezzin, ni de chiens aboyer comme souvent…) et une belle vue 360°. Nous y avons séjourné 1 semaine, le temps de découvrir le Kawa Ijen sur Java en 1 jour, l’île de Menjangan et de faire un peu de plongée à Pemuteran (le tout via Macro Bali Divecenter à Pemuteran). Mais avant tout nous avons pris le temps de profiter de cette très grande maison ouverte, de ses coins lecture (il y aussi des la TV et des DVD…pas eu envie!), de ses pavillons et du jardin. Chaque jour nous pensions rêver les yeux ouverts. Putu et Kadek, les deux dames cuisinières et femmes de chambre, nous ont préparé d’excellents petits déjeuners, parfois le lunch et le dîner (ne loupez pas le BBQ). Apres deux restaurants chics mais pas exceptionnels à Pemuteran nous avons préféré manger à la villa. Ces deux dames souriantes et attentionnées nous ont fait nous sentir bien ici. Idem pour le personnel qui entretient le jardin, garde la propriété, ou le manager qui supervise la propriété. Pour la plage, les restaurants ou le bord de mer, il y a la navette gratuite à la demande avec le natel fourni par la villa. Très pratique. Nous avons juste eu un petit bug avec le prix d’une excursion à la ferme perlière, confirmez donc le prix avant la réservation. En fin de séjour nous aurions aimé pouvoir régler les frais de repas et de boissons par paypal ou carte de crédit. Ce ne fut malheureusement pas possible, ce qui nous obligea à redescendre chercher du cash à l’ATM. Mauvaise information reçue et à mettre à jour dans leur documentation. Un endroit à recommander sans hésiter. Mais si vous aimez l’animation, le shopping et la vie nocturne ne venez en aucun cas à Pemuteran…ici on plonge, on recharge les batteries, on a une vie très calme!
Amazing estate with luxurious gardens and very elegantly designed open houses. We stayed there twice already and if you are looking for a remote yet close to beach paradise, you are in the right place. A yoga studio is being added to the 3 existing villas, making Jeda a trully heaven of peace and tranquility.
What can be said about pure vacation perfection? We are two couples on vacation, and we stayed at Jeda Villa for 5 nights as part of a 3-week Bali trip. Of the four different places we stayed around the island, this was far and away our favorite. Let me run through all the ways in which this villa was pure bliss: The location: it’s set quite a distance off the main street, down a couple bumpy dirt roads, so you are well away from the street noise (not that there’s much hustle-bustle in Pemuteran). There are three different villas, each completely isolated from the others, each with its own large expanse of beautifully landscaped vivid green lawn, lush gardens, pool and koi pond. We were in Villa Timor, which has two bedrooms. There may have been people in the other villas, but we never saw them. You definitely feel like you are out in the country…you pass cows, chickens and pigs at the neighboring homes on the way in, and you are woken up each morning by the sound of roosters crowing. The views are truly breathtaking…in front of you is the ocean (you are on the opposite side of the main road, but the villa is up on a hill so you can see all the way to the sea), and behind you are towering mountain peaks. We could spend hours just taking in those drop-dead-gorgeous views. Regarding Pemuteran…it seems most visitors to Bali tend to stick to the well-known, crowded touristy areas of Kuta, Seminyak, & Nusa Dua. This is a huge mistake! While Pemuteran may not have the tourist infrastructure of those areas, if you are looking for the REAL Bali, this is the place to go. And there is plenty to do. Beaches? Check…but without the aggressive hawkers, crowded surf shops and cheap souvenir stores blanketing the streets. Diving? Check…some of the best in Bali. Hiking? Check…Bali Barat Nat’l Park is a short drive down the road. Relaxing? Yes…amidst some of the most spectacular scenery on the island. The villa itself is just incredible! It’s an open-air structure, with the main living areas open to the spectacular views outside. Only the bedrooms and the kitchen have walls. It never rained while we were there (dry season), but there are rolled-up wooden shades that can be dropped to enclose everything if it did. Fortunately we didn’t need them…we LOVED feeling like we were living in the outdoors, surrounded by nature, while encased in luxury. The building is way bigger than we were expecting from the pictures – with only four of us there, we felt like we were in a palace. And there are so many luxurious spots to relax, read, and take in the gorgeous views – there’s a large sitting area with L-shaped sofas outside one of the bedrooms, a chaise lounge near the dining area looking out to the pool, and upstairs is yet another large living area with sofas, and a TV (which we never even turned on – we were enjoying the natural scenery way too much) and stocked bookshelves. Then there are the four poolside loungers, and on top of all that, there’s the Bale set away from the house next to the koi pond…this was a favorite spot for my husband, who spent many enjoyable hours reading out there. Everything is just luxury to the max. The floors are gorgeous marble. (Be careful walking in from the pool with wet feet…it can be slippery!) The dining room has a huge, 8-person table. Unique pieces of furniture and modern art are placed throughout, so that wherever you look, your eye lands on something beautiful. In fact I would say that my most enduring memory of Jeda Villa is one of exquisite beauty…no matter where my eyes landed, there was something of beauty right in front of me. Look straight…there’s a lovely painting on the wall. Look out…there’s the glimmering ocean, or the majestic mountains. Just looking down at my feet as I walked by the pool was an exercise in beauty, as the poolside Frangipani tree dropped perfect little blossoms all around such that it seemed the Gods wanted to blanket each step with a visual delight. It wasn’t possible to NOT see something of beauty at every moment. The pictures simply do not do this place justice! We LOVED the native (outdoor) bathrooms. They were large, well-appointed, sparkling clean, and taking a shower outdoors just feels awesome! The entire outdoor atmosphere of the villa was like camping, only in the utmost of opulence. It was outdoor living the way kings would do it. The bedrooms were very comfortable – king size beds with firm, comfortable mattresses, lots of closet and shelf space, and AC that kept the temps perfect for sleeping. Dining: while there are quite a few restaurants nearby, and the staff will drive you to/from wherever at any time, we found that we preferred to eat in. They offer a fabulous menu right there at the villa, for very reasonable prices – the ladies come over to cook for you in your kitchen, and serve you in the dining room. Breakfast (included) every morning was fantastic…best breakfasts we had in Bali! Cheesy omelettes, delicious banana pancakes, crispy bacon, toast made from a crusty round loaf of bread. For lunch and dinner they offer Balinese and Indonesian dishes, as well as some continental options (pasta, chicken cordon-bleu, burgers, salads). Over the course of our five days there we ate most meals right at the villa, and never tired of the food. On our last night we indulged in the bbq feast, which, at about $15 per person, was an incredible deal…more food than any of us could eat! There was just something so exquisite about eating meals in that open-air dining room, with stunning views on three sides. In fact I would say the biggest problem with staying at Jeda Villa is that we really didn’t want to go out and do anything else! After breakfast there were laps in the long infinity pool (biggest pool we saw in Bali…and just for US!), then books to read, then a walk around the koi pond, then lunch, then (as it was getting hot) another dip in the pool, then more reading in the poolside lounger, followed by some computer time (the wifi worked fine for us), then dinner and a couple of Bintangs, then some time to read a little more before bed. What else would anyone want to do? Fortunately we did get out and do a few more things. My husband and I are divers, and we spent two days diving with Reef Seen, including one day at Menjangan Island, which I highly recommend. Our non-diving friends came along with us and snorkeled, which they really enjoyed as well. It’s not that common to be able to mix both divers and snorkelers on the same boat, but the unique topography of Menjangan Island allows for this – the divers drop in over the shallow reef, then swim out and drop over the steep wall to go deeper while the snorkelers stay near the boat in the shallows, and there’s plenty for all to see. On another day we arranged for a guided trek to Bali Barat National Park, which was pleasant and gave us a chance to stretch our legs and see some unique wildlife. The staff will take care of all arrangements for you. Which brings us to the staff…they were simply outstanding! The place was kept spotless. The food was prepared for us and served with aplomb. Any time we wanted to go anywhere, Salamat would drive us in the golf cart. We felt catered to like we were royalty. In every review I try to find something about the place that could use improvement. So, for Jeda Villa…hmm, I’m stumped! I honestly can’t think of a single thing. It was perfection in every way. Pure vacation bliss.
We stayed 4 nights at the Jeda Villa. We arrived late and we were warmly welcomed by Selamat and his staff. The breakfast consists out of a freshly made tangerine juice, whole wheat toasts (several toppings), eggs (scrambled, sunny side up or omelette with onions, tomato, cheese and ham), a fruit platter, coffe and several tees and banana pancakes. All cooked by a private chef in the villas kitchen. The communication was simple and easy. We received a mobile phone which we could use to call Selamat and he organized free local pick up and drop off for the beach, snorkeling and even Spa treatments in the villa. The Jeda Villa and its surrounding is very beautiful, clean and for all design minded people a must. All the water comes from an own well and it ua drinkable. The pool is very clean and refreshing. All the sleeping room have an AC and through the open structure it is everywhere cool and enjoyable. The villa is even better than in the pictures. For dinner we enjoyed the private chef cooking for us in the villa and alao the price were reasonable. The food is very nice presented and everything is on time. Over all we definetly will be back. The openess of the villa the huge area of green and trees and secludity is unique. All for this price a bargain!
Pemuteran is a sleepy town, near pristine beaches and some of the best snorkeling I’ve done in my life. The babi guling down the road is the best I’ve had in Bali and the meals at the villa were outstanding. Pretty much everything about the villa is outstanding. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive, the bath products are locally sourced, the friendly dog Boris who wanders around is a joy to see and the overall attention to detail is inspiring. It’s a beautiful space situated among lush gardens that is very astutely designed. I’ve traveled around the world extensively and this is the nicest villa I’ve ever stayed in, inclusive of aman resort villas and European chateaus. I wholeheartedly recommend this space to anyone who is in the area. You’ll truly feel lucky to have stayed there. I do.
Cette villa est une pure merveille. Très calme, la vue est magnifique et le petit déjeuner est parfait. Merci!
