About Miranda Boender

We are Robert and Miranda and we love travelling together with our daugther Danique. In 2010 we went to Bali for the first time. Ever since we fell in love with this beautiful island and its lovely people. We visited many places around the world but we didn't get the same feeling like in Bali.

Therefore we decided to build our own home on Bali. This way we can share this magical feeling with others. Our holiday home is known as 'Villa Riang'. It is situated in the village Mayong right next door of our Balinese friends Putu and Ria. It was built in 2012 by local workmen. Putu and Ria were in charge of the build. This way we could support many local families.

Do you want to share this feeling with us? Book your stay in 'Villa Riang'!

Miranda Boender purchased this villa in 2012

Why Miranda Boender chose Lovina

In 2010 we went on holiday to Bali for the first time. We rented a lovely villa in the North of Bali. Even before the holiday was over we knew for sure: Next year we are coming back to this beautiful island.

Renting a villa with staff is very common in Bali. Ria was a member of staff at the villa and that is how we met. She cooked and cleaned for us and with her colleague she made sure that the villa was very clean and tidy. Talking to her gave us the feeling like we had known her for years.

We stayed at the same villa in 2011. Luckily Ria still worked there. We also met her husband and children. It may sound strange but in this short period of time we developed a close relationship with Ria and her family.

We talked about our dream of creating our own spot on Bali. As if it was meant to be Ria told us about her dream of managing a villa in the town where she lived. That way she would be able to combine work and family life. Then she mentioned a stretch of land alongside their house. We would be able to build a villa there. It did not take us long to consider. This is what we wanted: Our own place on beautiful Bali!

The construction of our villa started in November 2011. After 9 months of hard work 'Villa Riang' was finished and we are very proud of the result. On the 28th of July 2012 'Villa Riang' was officially consecrated according to Balinese tradition. We attended this ceremony during our first stay in the villa. This was a very special experience for us.

What makes this villa unique

Amazing views from the terrace. Brand new home, away from touristical areas. Private pool, excellent beds, air conditioning. Devoted staff who will make your stay unforgettable!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was the epitome of luxury, set in the hills (literally) of Northern Bali - it is perfect for people wanting to get away from the chaos of South Bali or for people wanting to experience Bali life in a rural setting.

Putu and Ria were absolutely committed to ensuring our stay was perfect, going out of their way to include us in all aspects of their daily life from sharing meals to shopping for fruit at the local stalls, we were treated as part of the family for the duration of our stay.

Ria happily arranged all our activities, which included joining Putu for a trek through the rice fields during which he shared his local knowledge regarding religion, traditional medicine and farming - this in itself is an absolute must do - followed by a sumptuous feast cooked by Ria with so much food we had to tell her to stop cooking!

I can't recommend this place enough! Although it's a little way to the nearest town centre (10 min to Seririt, about 30 min to Lovina) it is just a beautiful area and Ria and Putu are more than happy to arrange transport anywhere at your request - including transfers to and from Ngurah Rai airport.

Stop thinking about it and just book it!!!

Nice house friendly staff, great view, money worth

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect holiday! It was wonderful to be part of the family with the staff of Putu and Ria and the children in this beautiful house. The propery is clean and well maintained with very good customer service. Meals are great and transport by car or by motorbike is well organized. We have done many activities with the family. e.g. harvesting mangos, trekking with Putu, mayongtrekking experience, visiting the market and local restaurants in Lovina, and visiting the temple during Galungan. Also nice to do is making a motorbiketrip in the beautiful surroundings of Mayong and snorkling at Menjangan island. The view from the room and the terrace is great, sometimes the road above the house is a little bit noisy. Sure we will recommend this property to our friends and relatives and to families with children

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to travel from Ubud to Mayong Village to stay at Villa Riang during the last leg of our honeymoon in Bali. Are we ever glad we did! The accommodations are situated in the most serene setting; amidst lush, dense foliage with an incredible view! Ria and Putu who help manage the property are such warm and lovely people who only further helped make our stay that more special and memorable. This amazing family made us feel at home and even opened their doors to us, always inviting us to dine with them. On our last day, Ria gave us a treat and took us to her temple to show us her family's traditions and practices. We would highly recommend this place to families, friends or couples looking to immerse themselves in Bali life and culture. Aside from location and luxury, Villa Riang has unparalleled charm with the extra care Putu & Ria took to ensure our stay was nothing short of sensational!

a five star hotel.......

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a family of four in Villa Riang after a three weeks travel in Indonesia. The villa feels as if you arrived in a five star hotel with so may space, luxurious beds, a pool, a large kitchen and stunning views from everywhere. Ria and Putu took care of us, made us lunch and dinner some times and Putu drove us to Lovina, the holy springs and took us out for a trekking in the sawa's.

Transport to and from the villa was also easy to arrange so if you want another experience than the south of Bali visit Villa Riang, you will enjoy it a LOT.

After a warm welcome from Ria and Putu (staff) we had a comfortable stay in the beautiful and well equiped villa. Their and our daugthers played a lot together and had great fun, it was a good oppurtunity for our children to learn about the real live in Bali.

The rooms and beds are fantastic, the pool offers a good refreshment, Ria's cooking is great (hard to find a better place to eat!) and we really felt at home.

We did the tracking with Putu, a must when you visit Bali. He learned us a lot about Balinese religion, nature and agriculture. Thanks to Ria (she pursuaded the man from the boat to stay on the water a bit longer then the other boats) we saw schools of dolphins jumping over the waves. Together with Putu and Ria we ate nasi in a warung and a grilled fish looking out over the sea. We had an unforgettable stay in Villa Riang.

We sure hope to visit Villa Riang and Ria, Putu and family in the future.

This is what a holiday should be. Staying on a beautiful tropical island in a luxury villa, a staff that cooks the most delicious meals, getting connected to local people, having the time of your life….

Our first trip out of Europe and our first experience with Asia. We definitely will be back, there is so much to do in the North of Bali. Our hosts Ria and Putu showed us the real Balinese life.

Some of the highlights: tracking through the ricefields with Putu, watching many dolphins early in the morning, admiring the beautiful Balinese nature…

Since this was our first trip so far away from home we were very happy with the help of Ria and Putu. The airport transfer was ideal and Ria helped us out with taking care of daily stuff, like groceries and excursions.

The villa is clean and spacious and the beds are big and very comfortable. The terrace and pool are nice, with a great view at the tropical vegetation.

Stop hesitating and start booking Villa Riang ;-)

Perfect first impression of Bali, Villa Riang.

  • 5 of 5

This is our first trip to Bali. We started at Villa Riang in Mayong. In the north of Bali and close to Lovina. We found this villa by accident through the internet. This villa is looked after by the Balinese neighbours Ria and Putu. Ria is a lovely hostess and Putu is the guide you need when taking a hike into the jungle. The description of the villa is exactly what it is in real live. It is new, big, spacious, clean and the view to the opposite jungle is breathtaking.

The small pool is just what you need in order to cool down after a hike with Putu through the jungle. He knows the original traditions of the local Balinese people and he learns you about the background of the Hindu religion. The route through the rice fields and jungle brings you also to the local people who live there.

Once you come back to the villa after the hike, Ria takes care of a splendid local meal. She is a very good cook and she knows how to look after their guests. Even for one of us who couldn't go on the hike, an alternative program to Lovina was not an issue at all.

Villa Riang was a very good start of our trip to Bali. Thanks to the lovely people Ria and Putu.

For us a 5 star accomodation!
