Simply Real Bali – Deluxe Villa Surya.
Elegant by design, Villa Surya is a secluded hideaway open all year round. Combining casual comfort with grace and simplicity it is where the ‘Real’ Bali can still be found. The villa is an oasis of tranquility on the Eastern Bali Coast with a spectacular view of holy Mt. Agung, emerald green paddy fields and deep azure oceans. Set back 200 meters from the ocean the beaches are only a short 2 minute walk away. The upper mezzanine is the ideal place to view all this splendour & also to have those intimate alfresco meals during the endless tropical nights.
The pool seating area surrounding the large 20 meter infinity swimming pool built of native Balinese green stone is placed in the middle of a freshwater plant and fish habitat, shaded by coconut, banana and fragrant frangipani trees. There is also a very romantic 13 meter swimming pool with mood lighting and a meditation island.
Our full time Balinese housekeeping staff will gently cater to your wishes starting with a complete breakfast & then throughout the day. Driver with car available.
You Will Love Bali:: Bali and its unique way of life, the lovely, gentle people and the centuries old religion and culture which preach of a unity between nature and life without demanding that anyone else take part or believe, but simply just respect it and them.
The 'true' Bali can be found down every little lane or within each family compound and in the laughing faces of the hordes of happy and well-mannered children or even in the passing women their heads towering high with offerings for the gods or the days gathered produce.
We put Villa Surya as close to the middle of this as possible, near the working village of Jasri where every morning the farmers pass by the villa on the way to their fields and every evening the local families come down to bath in the river - sometimes 4 and 5 to a motorbike but always happy to see you and eager to just chat about their lives and yours.
Local Attractions:: • Mount Agung – (3142 meters high) about 30 km away and the temperature difference is about 20C – colder!
• Pura Besakih – about 36km, Mother Temple of Hinduism (Balinese) a vast temple complex playing a major role in the religious life of every Balinese
• Tirta Gangga – Water Palace, weekend retreat of the last Rajah of Karangasem about 5km
• Ujung – Water Palace number 2 only 3km away – rebuilt by the World Bank, so well worth a visit.
• Pantai Putih – White sandy beach – one of the most well-known beaches on the island – 5km away and a good contrast to the black sand of the other beaches.
• Amlapura's authentic Balinese market is the center of local life and a source of tropical fruits and produce. Buy anything you fancy there and our staff will happily prepare it for you with flair and Balinese flavour.
• Tenganan – 15km, the original Bali Aga village (living museum) and a good place to find local textiles such as double ikat.
We are a family of 5 (3 kids age 17,15 and 9) and loved our stay in the villa (stayed for one week)! The house is beautifully located between the rice fields and you can take nice walks with great views of the ocean and country life. The staff was very friendly and so are the owners. There is a lot to do and see in the area and we are very happy to get a real picture of Bali and Balinese life. Also because the house is in the middle of it. People working on the fields, washing in the river and the sound of roosters every morning. Started our day with a swim in the pool and a good breakfast. What a nice holiday life!
One of the highlights was our tour to Amed. The snorkeling was much better than we expected and the tour by the coast was a great picture opportunity. White Sand Beach was also very nice. We ended there almost every day. Good bodysurfing, nice beach and affordable food and beachbeds. Even saw a turtle there! The house was great to come back to! Very relaxing, good beds and showers, nicely decorated with a beautiful pool and garden. So yes, we can absolutely recommend the villa and eastern Bali. Thanks Mark, Petra and staff!
We stayed 5 days at Villa Surya, wonderfull house, clean and personnal very nice and helpfull, Ketut is a great cook i can just recommand to have lunch at home. Will be back next time.
I would recommend Villa Surya to anyone, particularly those with a bit more time on their hands (i.e., more than a weekend) and a desire for more than the resort beaches of Kuta and Sanur have to offer.
The villa itself is gorgeous - two inviting pools set in a garden environment conceived and maintained with great care. The two suites, the poolside (ground floor) and mezzanine (upstairs) are both large, with comfortable beds, beautifully appointed bathrooms and plenty of living area. There is also a large living and dining area and kitchen under the mezzanine suite. The property is clean, and the website did not fully do justice to the setting and the view of rice paddies extending to the sea, to the beauty of sitting by the pool and watching the sun rise.
More importantly, the web cannot truly convey the friendly welcome and homey atmosphere of Villa Surya. Mark and Petra - the owners - live nearby and are very helpful in suggesting activities to make the most of what eastern Bali has to offer. Our two kids - age 4 and 2 - fell in love with Mark and Petra and with the villa staff (who are extremely friendly and welcoming), and had so much fun exploring the grounds and learning about local plants, animals and customs.
Villa Surya is located in a quiet, village setting, away from the congested resort communities of the southern part of the island. However, it is still just a 10-minute drive to a modern supermarket, 15 minutes to the restaurants of Candi Dasa. And eastern Bali has a wide variety of great activities on offer - from trekking and white water rafting to swimming, surfing and diving. Staying at Villa Surya, we could pack out days with fun, and then retreat to a relaxed and welcoming home environment. Perfect!
Living in the Villa Surya for one week was just like what I would picture a week in paradise. The beds were amazing! I have never slept that well ever again. After taking a swim in the gorgeous pool every morning Kutut, the Villa's own chef, made us a delicious breakfast! The lunch and dinner that Kutut also prepared every day were just a dream come true! Whenever we were curious about the traditional dishes she was happy to show us how they were prepared and taught us her recipes, which added to the authentic Balinese experience of staying in the Villa. Alit, who also works in the Villa, was very friendly and always happy to offer his help! What I also loved about the Villa Surya was its great location! While it is just a short walk from one of Bali's black beaches, it is also just a short drive to impressive Balinese temples. There is a wide range of surfing, fishing and diving possibilities offered close by so you will never get bored! The Villa Surya is just a perfect place to come to and relax in an authentic balinese atmosphere! I was very sad to leave and can't wait to go back!
Ein Hallo an alle die sich ein bisschen Luxus, Ruhe und Erholung gönnen wollen,
Letztes Jahr in August habe ich mit zwei Freundinnen eine Woche in der Villa Surya verbracht, und ich muss sagen es war
von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute an ein wahrgewordener Traum.
Zur Begrüßung gab es erst einmal eine Trinkkokusnuss aus dem eingen Garten. Die Zimmer waren sehr schön mit Blumen und traditionellen Gestecken
geschmückt und alles hat vor Sauberkeit geglänzt. Die beiden Hausangestellten, Ketut und und Alit, sind so unglaublich herzlich und nett, da fühlt man sich
gleich wie Zuhause!
In der Villa scheint es keinen Stress und schlechte Laune zu geben, aber wieso auch?!
Wer den ganzen Tag bekocht wird (Ketut ist DIE Köchin schlechthin-und wer sich noch nicht so an die Balinesische Küche hinwagt- sie kann auch super leckeres
westliches Essen zubereiten), und sich am Pool enspannt und ab und zu auch mal balinesische Tempel oder Feste besucht, der kann gar nicht schlecht gelaunt
Die Location ist ein Traum, ein paar hundert Meter vom Meer enfernt, zwischen Reisfeldern gelegen hört man keinen Mucks von Straßenlärm, man wird von dem
Zwitschern der Vögel geweckt und schläft mit dem Zirpen der Grillen ein.
Ich hab in dieser einen Woche so viele Eindrücke gewonnen, die ich in dieser Bewertung leider gar nicht alle einbringen kann, aber eins kann ich mit Sicherheit
sagen: Wer sich für die Villa Surya entscheidet, kann sich auf den wohl schönsten Urlaub seines Lebens freuen: Gastfreundlichkeit, exzellente Küche, Ruhe und
Entspannung wie man es noch nie gehabt hat und eine Wahnsinning interessante Kultur!
Für mich war der Aufenthalt in der Villa Surya makellos, und ich kann es kaum erwarten wieder dorthin zurückzukehren!
The Villa Surya is a bright new villa with everything you could need for a perfect holiday. The villa sits in a beautiful grounds surrounded by paddy fields and a stones throw from a sandy beach! the infinity pool has a stocked fish pond running along its side which helps you to imagine that you are in the Garden of Eden cooling of in the heart of nature.
Alit and Kutut instantly made us feel welcome when we arrived and couldn't do enough for us. Kutut cooked a wide variety of meals that were all delicious and plentiful.
they are also willing to organise excursions to other areas of Bali and tourist attractions with one of the knowledgeable drivers, to fishing or diving trips and spa treatments, or massage or yoga lessons in the comfort of your own villa.
The villa has a large well furnished rooms with air con in the bedrooms and brilliant Balanise showers in the bathrooms( you shower under the stars) that are kept immaculate by alit and Kutut...
We are planning to return to paradise as soon as possible!
To name but a few of the tourist attractions in the vicinity of Villa Surya there is Tenganan Village (original old Bali Aga village), Ujung Water Palace, Tirtagangga Watergardens, Besakih Temple (Bali’s Mother Temple and home of many colourful ceremonies) and Amed and Tulamben for the diving enthusiast (wreck of the USS Liberty).
Beautiful Candi Dasa is renowned for its first class restaurants, shopping and night life and is only 8 kilometres away. Amlapura the provincial capital of Karangasem is famous for its authentic Balinese market and shopping opportunities and only a 3 minute drive away from Villa Surya.
The adventurous can rent a local fishing boat to take them to the famous White Sandy Beach, a day’s snorkelling at the Blue Lagoon by Padang Bai or out to one of the near islands. There are many opportunities to either rent a bicycle or go trekking through the emerald green and scenic rice fields and mountains in the area.
Other Activities: Balinese Cooking Classes with our Hostess Ketut - she's more than happy to answer all your questions or just let you look over her shoulder, scuba diving on the USS wreck or snorkeling in Padang Bai or Amed. Yoga classes or maybe even some massaging and spa experiences for the outer and inner beauty. Sightseeing and joining in with the Balinese ceremonies of which there is a new one almost every day - just ask our staff.
