My Wife & I thoroughly enjoyed a 5* luxury experience at Villa Asmara for 14 days. For us, this place was literally paradise and far larger than the pictures suggest.
The Villa team led by Kadek are first class and will cater for everything you ask even if it be for a fresh banana or coconut from one of the palms in the garden.
Kadek is a fantastic chef who creates unbelievable local cuisine at low cost from fresh ingredients to order each and every morning. We loved her recipes and ate in the villa most nights, she should have great confidence in her cooking!
Filipe as an owner is uber efficient, extremely polite and ensures a truly memorable experience.
The dolphins, the diving, the waterfalls, the temples are all within easy distance for the designated driver Putu, who will make your day out unforgettable.
My wife & I could not have asked anything more for our honeymoon. We thank the Villa staff led by Kadek and the Owner Filip for a truly amazing holiday.

Stunning Villa, amazing staff in quiet location in North Bali
Awesome 5 bedroom open plan villa with wonderful staff that made our 4 night break so enjoyable.
The quality of the villa and the gardens is amazing, all beautifully designed and fitted to the highest of standards.
Kadek and Nila were delightful and cooked us breakfast and evening meals - we miss them already.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a luxury villa with great staff then this is the place for you.
Luxury all around
My husband and I have only good things to say about Villa Asmara. The pictures are just as it looks. Kadek, Nila, Junior and the security were all so fabulous. Kadek and Nila were fabulous cooks (we loved their Bami Goreng😋😋😋) They were all so willing to help and make us feel welcome, even inviting us to the gardeners wedding! Filip happened to be down for this as well and was so kind making sure we were having a good time. Everyone was attentive without being intrusive.
Just my husband and I stayed here for five nights and it was perfectly relaxing and wish we would have booked more time here.
Thank you Filip for opening up your rental home to us. It truly is the five star villa we were searching for for this special trip of ours. Thanks to all of the staff for being so gracious and accommodating.
Absolutely Beautiful Villa with wonderful staff to make sure you have anything you need.
Villa Asmara is even more amazing than in the pictures. It is beautifully designed and absolutely spotless. We were two families with 7 people total and we had more than enough room. There are so many places to sit outdoors that we had to make sure to enjoy every spot as each has a special view. The pool is amazing and the beach it overlooks is stunning. The villa is located in Lovina Beach and it is a lovely area away from the busyness of the southern part of the island but still has plenty to do. The beachfront at the villa is black sand and very nice with beautiful sunrises. Just as wonderful as the villa so is the staff. They were so attentive yet we had plenty of privacy. They cooked amazing meals and offered assistance setting up anything we were interested in such as snorkeling, hot springs and scooters etc. We have traveled the world and been fortunate enough to stay in some luxurious places but we were just blown away with Villa Asmara. The owner, Filip, is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any inquiries. We actually left something valuable behind and he immediately made arrangements to ship it to us.
We try not to repeat vacations but honestly we will give up a new destination just to go back to Villa Asmara. I should add too that the prices (even with Bali in mind) are SOOOO reasonable, we would’ve paid much more.
The villa was fabulous. The staff...Nila and Vadek (on site manager) really made the whole experience over the top. They prepared our breakfast and dinner every day....excellent cooks and can prepare whatever you wish. They are always upbeat and always willing to help...and make recommendations. This is definitely a six star property. The location really worked for us too. Lovina Beach was a great little village for sunset cocktails and shopping for essentials. We also were close to snorkeling that we thought was the best we have ever experienced...and we have snorkeled all over the world. The villa was on the north side of Bali and the beaches were volcanic black sand...very soft. Massages were easy to schedule and Made has healing hands. All in all this totally exceeded our expectations. Filip was easy to work with and quick with responses. As an FYI, it is a three hour car ride from the airport to the villa, the scenery is beautiful and the villa and location are well worth the trip. I am recommending Villa Asmara to all my friends.
Perfect private little piece of paradise!
My family (including 6 adults and 3 kids) had an amazing time at Villa Asmara. The house was absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. The grounds were also immaculate with beautiful flowers and landscaping. With such a large group, it was nice to have our own private spaces as well as such a large area for us to hang out together and eat our meals. The space around the pool area is huge with many different places to sit and relax. I loved sitting out on the deck at night listening to the ocean waves and we had a couple of amazing lightning storms to watch as well.
The staff at the villa were so friendly and always willing to help out. Kadek was an amazing cook and did a great job of accommodating all of our special requests (plus my husband is vegetarian). We had all of our dinners at the house and each one was fabulous! It was so nice to not have to worry about grocery shopping and cooking and we usually had enough left overs to serve us for lunch the next day.
As much as I could have stayed all week just at the house, we did get out to explore the area on most days. Snorkelling and diving out at Manjangan Island is worth the day trip, although there were some closer areas to snorkel that still had decent visibility and some interesting finds. The Aling Aling waterfalls were another highlight if you're feeling a little adventurous and looking to do a little waterfall jumping. We also did a dolphin tour and saw quite a few dolphins and even a few flips in the air. I did have some mixed feelings about the tours, however, as there were SO MANY boats and it felt like we were chasing down the dolphins. Due to some delays on our part, we actually got there late so many of the boats were starting to leave as we arrived. This made it considerably less busy and made for a better experience.
The one thing that was disappointing was how much garbage accumulated on the beach. (NOTE: This was not anything to do specifically with the house itself, just the area in general). While the staff did clean the beach in front of the house, there was quite a large amount of garbage coming down from the river as well as being washed up from the ocean. It's such a beautiful area in every other regard, that it's sad to see the lack of resources to control the garbage and other waste.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. Can't wait to go back one day!! Thank-you so much for sharing your beautiful villa!
Centre of Lovina Kalibukbuk
Lovina is a chain of coastal villages in the north of Bali. Kalibukbuk is one of those villages and is considered the “centre” of Lovina. In addition to the well-known dolphin monument, Kalibukbuk has various shops as well as lovely restaurants, bars, and local warungs (eateries). Especially in Jalan Binaria, Jalan Pantai, and Jalan Rambutan, there is a wide selection of dining and entertainment venues such as Warung Aria, Jasmin Kitchen, Suku, Warung Apple, or the restaurant at the Chonos Hotel. Whether you feel like Balinese, Japanese, or French cuisine or simply a pizza or a burger, there is something for everyone’s taste. If you prefer a trendier venue, you can go to the “Spice Beach Club”, which is located on Lovina Beach. The beach club has a lounge and cocktail bar as well as an atmospheric restaurant. The menu includes both local and European dishes. A band regularly plays atmospheric music. In the late hours, you can go to “Kantin 21”, a friendly outdoor dance club where local Balinese, tourists, and expats can dance to live music until the early hours.
The hot springs in Banjar
At the foot of the hills of Banjar are the “Air Panas” volcanic hot springs. This is a 10 minute drive from Villa Asmara. Amidst landscaped gardens, there are hot springs on three levels. The therapeutic hot water sprays out of natural stone heads in the landscaped ponds in which you can enjoy the benefits of the sulphurous water. This is ideal for people with rheumatic diseases. Don’t forget your swimwear and towels. Try to avoid Sundays because the Balinese also enjoy the springs on their day off.
Not far from the hot springs is the Buddhist Monastery “Brahma Vihara Arama”. It is the largest Buddhist temple of Bali and is an oasis of calm. At the highest level, a miniature replica of the famous temple at Borobudur on Java was built. From the property, you have a magnificent view overlooking the coast of the north of Bali.
The old port city of Singaraja is the former capital of Bali and is now the capital of the regency of Buleleng. With roughly 100,000 inhabitants, it is the second largest city of Bali. The colonial past of the city is still noticeable in the architecture of many buildings, especially in the old port. The white plastered buildings still exude the atmosphere of the days when the port was still a thriving centre where mainly herbs and tobacco were traded. It is a city with hospitals, pharmacies, schools, universities, banks and markets. You will be amazed by the scents and colours of Balinese life. Singaraja is also home to the Gedong Kirtya library in which you can find the famous Lontar manuscripts and lots of Balinese literature. Also worth visiting are the “Pasar Anyar II” market, the Chinese temple, and the royal palace where the former royal family of Buleleng once had their residence.
Git Git Waterfalls
A half hour drive from Singaraja, you will find the spectacular 40-metre-high Git Git waterfall in the middle of the tropical rainforest. A 1-km path full of souvenir shops will lead you through a coffee and vanilla plantation to one of the most breath-taking waterfalls that Bali has been blessed with. Take a moment to enjoy the sound of the falling water.
Waterfalls and Coffee plantations of Munduk
Higher up in the mountains at Munduk, the most beautiful waterfall is surrounded by spectacular nature. At the Lumbung Resort, the guides are ready to accompany you on various hikes. You can also visit colonial houses and a coffee roasting factory in Munduk.
On the way to Munduk, you will see a small sign saying "Giant Tree". After a bad 7-km stretch of road, you will finally arrive. The tree has a circumference of 34 metres, and you can even go inside it. The roots form mysterious chambers that you can explore. The road to the tree gives you a good picture of everyday village life in Bali.
Bedugul and the “Pura Ulun” Temple
From the villa, It is more than a one hour drive to Bedugul. We therefore recommend that you combine this trip with the Git Git waterfalls or to make a stopover in Denpasar on the way back. You should definitely visit the “Pura Ulun” temple, which is located on the Danu Bratan Lake. You will undoubtedly recognize the temple from the 50,000 Rp banknotes. The Buyan and Tamblingan Lakes, where you can take beautiful guided walks, are also nearby. There are Botanical Gardens in Bedugul, and the local market is also definitely worth a visit. Do not forget to haggle if you want to buy something!
Diving & Snorkling in Menjangan
Bali is known as the “Island of the Gods” for its beautiful natural scenery, landscapes, and beaches as well as the traditional yet authentic culture. Much less known and often underestimated is the breath-taking underwater life around Bali. World class diving sites make Bali an ideal destination for those who want to combine exploring the underwater world with other activities and excursions.
