This villa is mesmerising. The design, layout and material selections are perfect and inviting. I could sit and ponder for hours only breaking to enjoy the most beautiful private pool I have ever experienced.
Thank you for the wonderful staff for making the stay seamless and the house immaculate. A wonderful experience I will cherish.

What an amazing time our family have had at this beautiful villa. We was in awe when we arrived, the photos dont do it justice !! The team to greet us were absolutely warming and have been a credit to this villa. The meals we have had cooked us have been delicious and to be honest we haven´t wanted to venture out to eat.
Desi and Gusti have looked after us very well and we are so happy that they were part of the team.
The house was spotless and it was a lovely touch every evening to have our bedrooms prepared for the night with the nets put down and mosquito plugs put in. The garden and pool were kept immaculate and we never really knew they were working around us. Every morning we woke to the seats brushed and cushions organised and neat and a beautiful clean pool with fresh towels. Also thank you to our night guard.
We have had 5 days here that have been a relaxing and beautiful holiday - we will have lovely memories of this tranquil paradise.

Thank you all for the fabulous hospitality and the best of "Parense". Goodluck to Desi and her new baby.

All our love, Caroline, Brett & family


Dear Beach Villa Sungai Raja team

I can't thank you enough for the most lovely stay here in paradise.
The evening arrival was spectacular and Ketut welcomed me with a big smile and such warmth. Thank you for the welcome drink, it was such a nice touch as you give me a touch of this gorgeous place. I will always remember the beautiful grand entrance. The architecture is stunning to me as it is not what I am used to in America. And the view is incredible. It's such an amazing peak to be able to look out and see the ocean. And when I want to step away from the pool, walk along the sand and listen to the crashing waves. You truly have a beautiful home, Hedzer. Thank you for opening your home with welcoming arms. This villa is a dream to photographers and I can't wait to share the images with you.


My stay was an absolute dream. Thank you again for everything! Best wishes to you and yours!

all my love

The diving and snorkeling by Menjangan Island was beautiful!
The Beach Spice club is also a very good restaurant in Lovina directly on the beach and Live Music.

The good place in paradise,

Put the autopilot and let's go, you are on vacation.

There are no words to write the magic of this villa, Bali and its people.
We were delighted to spend our holidays in this villa which, let's say, deserves the 5-start awarded on AirBnB. The reality of place far exceeds the photos posted on line.

The staff of the villa is the nerve center of this place and allows you to achieve an unequaled well being. Discreet, smiling, especialy they are very caring for you.

You just have to taste the fabulous Balinese dishes.

Thank you very much for your availability and your smiles and for making our holidays a real moment of pleasure.

We wish you the best for you all.

The house is beautiful and is very well cared for by the staff. The styling and the attention to detail is excellent

Our trip to North Bali was just the right mix of relexation and sightseeing. We feel very lucky to have experienced this part of the world for a few days.

We leave tomorrow, but are already looking forward to planning another visit

Dear Sungai Raja team,

It is amazing how quickly these 10 days passed where we had the great opportunity to be your guests. We have felt very, very welcome in your villa and just want to say 'thank you!'.

Desi and Gusti - you did a wonderful job in providing an excellent service that made us forget about the daily tasks we know from home. Especially the Indonesian food was delicious and really enriched our Bali experience every day :-)

Although they kept themselves in the background, we'd like to thank the gardeners that made the villa surroundings a beautiful peace of heaven on earth, where we were able to find peace, silence and a great time to relax and enjoy the beautiful sea view.

Combined with regular massages, the great service, the stunning villa and the beauty of Bali itself we really appreciate we could have been your guests, felt very welcome and can't wait to get back to the island soon...

Kind regards,
Thank you so much,
and see you soon... :-)

The villa is spectaculair, the staff are amazing
It fills our heart with sadness to leave this little piece of heaven

Gusti and Desi made sure our every need was met with a huge smile. The food was delicious!
Don't be afraid to try the Indonesian spices, even though you might break into a sweat, it is well worth it.

Dear team

We stayed for 6 weeks in our place; a wonderful relaxing time. We had daily surprise dinners, which we truly loved. The food was great and a huge selection of dishes! We are going to miss that back home, no Desi & Gusti :-(
During our stay we had friends over for a week and a couple of days. Enjoying their company, doing some trips like dolphin watching, snorkeling @ Menjangan Island, temples and Git Git falls. We were belssed with blue skies and lots of sun, super relaxing feeling @ home on Bali!
We'll be back in December for another 6 weeks, enjoying the gardens so well kept by Kadek & Komang. And thank you Pastika for all those nights watching over us & the guests!!

Thank you for your kind hearts, smiles, help us every day in a relaxing home.



Dear Sungai Raja team
We had wonderful 9 days in paradise, didn't leave the villa much....

After a short flight from Singapore we arrived during rush hour on Bali airport. Never seen so many scooters and cars driving all over the place. The drive was long - no doubt, but the warm welcome compensated for everything.
Desi, Gusti, Pastika and all the others, made us feel comfortable and spoiled us every single day. THANK YOU. Even Komang made a wine delivery the same day possible. Holiday could start :-) Forget Amazone Prime, you need Komang.:-)
Massages everyday completed our heavenly feeling! They were really great too.
All in all, we had a great time, feel totally relaxed and happy.

We wish you all the very best

Conny & Jorg - Munich/Germany


Dear Hedzer & Augusta

The last six days kept us speechless and we are still amazed by this beautiful place! It's truly paradis!! The friendliness of Ketut, Komang, Desi, Gusti, Kadek and Pastika is beyond expectations. We were warmly welcomed late at night, after our driver Panda drove us safely over the whole island, by Komang who showed us around and explained every detail.
The next morning we woke up in paradise and met the angels of your villa. Desi and Gusti are amazing, they fullfil every single wish and their cooking is outstanding! We wish we could borrow them, take them with us! They are truly amazing. Their surprise dinner on our last night was nothing less than superb.
Our trip with Panda around the Lovina area was very interesting and we saw quite a lot. Panda waited at every 'insta-spot' and knew every good location. Thank you for that.

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home, we will miss this place and will keep every single memory close in our hearts!

We hope to find our way back to this awesome place, and we will thinking a lot of the great people we met!

Hope to visit again, Johannes & Sigrid - Frankfurt - Germany


Dear Sungai Raja Team
If you believe in fairytales, with elfes and fairies, Villa Sungai Raja is the closest you can get! A luscious and luxurious environment welcomes you on the first day after probably a long flight. The friendly staff makes you feel at home right from the first moment you enter the palace through the magnificent Indonesian wooden doors.
During our stay at the villa the staff was omni present to help or assist you on your every need. We really enjoyed the 5 star club sandwich they made for us every day.
It will be very hard to find such a wonderful place again.

Thanks and we will miss you! We'll think back with fond memories.

Happy Chinese New Year
As preschool teachers all four of us needed a break from the craziness of erveryday of our lives. Staying at Sungai Raja villa was exactly what we needed. The house was more than we could have ever dreamed and the staff was even more wonderful. The pool and the grounds were always clean yet we never heard them cleaning or cutting. The food was delicious and we loved staying in for dinner to enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing while eating dinner.
Every need we had while staying here was met and exceeded. We hope to be able to return again soon!

12000 km von unserem Zuhause entfernt
entdeckten wir auf Bali eine andre Welt mit faszinierendes, untumlicher Landschaft und freundlichen Menschen.
Nach Ausflugen zum Tempeln, zum Markt in Singaraja, zum Baden in den Holy Hot Springs Banjar, zum Schnorkeln und Tauchen bei der Menjagan Insel (wo wir einen Hai gesehen haben!), dem Scooter-Fahren im verruckten Strassenverkehr genossen wir immer wieder die grosszugige Villa Sungai Raja, den herrlichen Pool und die schone, gepflegte Gastenanlage.
Viel zu unseren Wohlergeben beigetragen haben Indri, Desi und Gusti mit den feinen Essen und ihres liebenswurdigen, ruhigen und diskreten Art.
Alle Angestellten ein herzliches Danke Schon! Wir haben un shier sehr wohlgefuhlt und angenehme und erholsame Tage verbracht.

Beachvilla Sungai Raja was last stop on or Bali vacation.
What we enjoyed the most was the quiet neighborhood. Before we have been to Ubud where everything seems to be loud and full of people. Here we had the opposite.
The atmosphere seems so real. When we went to the beach we talked to the people from this area, saw them working, kids enjoying their time swimming in the sea, fisherman went out with their boats by the sunrise coming back by sunset. To us all seemed so “Balinese”.
The Beachvilla Sungai Raja is a beautiful place, the view from every point of the property is amazing, the sound of the ocean so peaceful, we enjoyed almost every second.

Dear lovely Sungai Raja team,
From the 1st moment we arrived we fell in LOVE with this place – it felt like paradise on earth!
Spending time in the villa was amazing.– we enjoyed the pool. The comfy seating areas, the great weather and ocean breeze, the SONOS sound system :-) and Apple TV, but more than everything we enjoyed the Great Food!
Not to forget to mention how clean and lovely decorated it was all the time. We really felt like we are in our second home!

We will definitely recommend this place to our friends!

Dear Sungai Raja team,
It was a pleasure to be in this great place. We enjoyed the great service of Indri, Desi and Gusti – Perfect! We saw many exotic things:

– A very refreshing style of driving
– Dolphins
We’ll never forget the fantastic holiday and we hope we can come back! All the best.

Dear all,
We were astonished when we arrived at the villa. The serenity, beautiful architecture and warm staff of the villa. Thank you all so much.
The cooking was delicious. We felt like we were in a restaurant. The extra touch of Desi with the flowers and candles made the picture complete.
Ketut was a good driver and friend. He showed us a lot. Market of Singaraja, where I bought typical Balinese clothes and to the tailor. The last night we went to the club '21' with amazing live music.
Pastika made us feel save with his warm smile and the garden and pool were perfec. We are sad to leave this beautiful place with beautiful people.

You are all amazing!

Dear all lovely people from Sungai Raja,
We have no words enough to express our positive feelings that we experienced during our stay in your villa. Indri, Desi and Gusti made our everyday meals a real feast. Gardeners are very much appreciated for cherishing the garden and the pool., we took a photo of every corner. Drivers Kadek and Ketut his brother made our excursion enjoyable, they introduced us with most interesting places of Lovina, had great advices and also shared their knowledge about Bali and local people's traditions.
Special thanks to our assistant Komang for being so responsive and helpful. All advices we received were based on his own experience. And thank you Hedzer for efficient communication and for building this villa.

Laura cs - Lithuania


Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans la villa Sungai Raja. Cadre encharteur malgré peu de proximité avec les commerces. Piscine et terrasse magnifiques, décoration soignée et recherchée : Bravo au décorateur!
Un grand merci a Indri, Desie et Gusti pour leurs attentions durant tout notres séjour aussi que leur discretion. Toujours souriants et serviables. La nourriture etait très bonne, beaucoup de flexibilité sur les horaires, tres bon cuisiniere!
La découverte du marché traditional avec le personnel fut très plaisante. Merci à vous 3, vous êtes adorables.
Les prestations proposées par la villa restant au dessus des tarifs proposés à l'exterieur, il est prêférable de faire appel à d'autre prestataires.
L'assistant Komang a su repondre a nos attentes, nous regrettons toutefois l'absence de Ketut (Manager).

Pour résumer nos 6 jours à la villa en trois mots:


Les plus à souligner: La bombonne d'eau, es spirales à moustiques, le premier petit-déjeuner et diner, la propreté des lieux, la végétation (magnifique jardin), les jeux de plage, la musique, les films, les massages de Ayu, le téléphone de prêt, ...

Un grand merci également aux jardiniers et au garde. Et surtout à Hedzer, qui nous a permit de passer une fin de séjour au TOP à Bali.
Thanks to everybody

Melanie & Nicolas, Fatira & Nicolas


Sungai Raja,

What a piece of Paradise!

We capped our 15th night stay in the Gillis and Bali at this beautiful oasis. We could not have imagined a better finish to our honeymoon.

We spent 100% of our time relaxing in the villa, around the pool and on the beach.

The design of the home is stuff of architecture magazins!
The staff is top notch!
The weather was perfect!
The stay was joyous

Thank you for building this wonderful home and for allowing us to stay as guests. David and Callison (Seatle WA USA)


Dear Sungai Raja,

A big thanks for the pleasant stay. The food was delicious, the scenery perfect. The villa felt as our home. The kids loved the garden and the pool.

We saw the beautiful dolphins and all was arranged perfect for us. We felt very safe at night thanks to Pastika and we loved the different trips we did, ....

In brief: WE LOVED IT!
Thank you and hope to come back!

Bert, Dorien, Johan, Marijke, Akse, Celle, Rist


Dear all,

Our stay exceeded our highest expectations. After an intens tour of Java & Bali, we were looking for a place to relax in peace and quiet. The villa was even more luxurious than we expected. It's a classy place but thanks to the even more classy staff we felt straight at home.
The garden is perfectly maintained by the discrete but always smiling gardeners. The nightwatch gave us a very safe feeling.

But the beating heart of the house: Desi, Indri and Gusti! Their cooking was tremendous and the villa was always perfectly cleaned. And no effort was too much. Above all, we will always remember the kindness and the big smile.

Annelies, Kathleen, Ana & Martijn


Dear all,

Thanks for the great time we have in the villa. We really enjoyed the great food, perfect weather, the silence and ofcause the trips with the nice driver Bennie.

When we come back to Bali we are sure that we will visit the villa again and we will also recommend it to our friends and family.

Again thanks for this week in Balinese paradise!

kind regards Janus & Nicolien


Sadly to say goodbey to this paradise at the sea. Leaving with a lot of nice memories. We were able to combine our short week with relaxing and sightseeing.
What a lovely island, sand sea pool smiles temples mountains ricefields ceremonies sweet staff inflatables vulcano colors flowers sun flavors
We certainly want to come back, who knows...

Thanks Hedzer and Augusta to share this all with us! Thanks staff for fiscrete taking care of us and the property.

To Desi, Gusti and all other staff members of Beachvilla Sungai Raja
When we arrived we were overwhelmed by the look of the villa and staff members warm welcoming us after a long,long journey all the way from Holland.
During our stay the staff members surprised us every single day with their own unique skill and task in the villa, always accompanied with their smiles and wonderful hospitality. We realize they did a lot of work for us during our two weeks stay!
They will be in our hearts forever and we sincerely wish them and their families health, luck and propsperities in their lifes

Villa Sungai Raja with its staff is truly a home away from home
Hendrik & Els

We spent an amazing time in this villa with our family including our 1 year old daughter
We had great weather and enjoyed it thoroughly by the pool, swimming and relaxing.
During our time here we took some great trips with Ketut the driver who was an absolutely perfect guide, driver and story teller! We strongly recommend visiting the Bratan lake and temple, the Git-Git and Munduk waterfalls and snorkeling.
This (Menjangan) island breath takingly beautiful.
The staff in the villa is absolutely amazing! Pastika and the gardeners do a perfect job in the garden and security and are so friendly!
We have never had such great food in any country as we did here which is saying something as we are from France :-). Gusti prepares taste explosions that make us want to come back - for sure!
Desi is an absolute wonder and gift. She did everything to make sure our stay was perfect, even walking around with a crying baby (ours off course) so that we could have a quiet dinner. She is an angel and we truly hope to see her again next time.

Thank you all for the best holiday ever in a perfect environment!
Benoit, Renske & Chloé

After a tiring journey, to be so welcomed by a genuinly friendly staff was reviving. And entering the house was amazing. Even in the evening, the ligh, the space and the care that have been put into it, was and is overwhelming.
As a family we have thoroughly enjoyed the house, the pool, the massage tables, the wonderful food (we actually preferred to eat at the villa) and amazing HOSPITALITY.
Apart from being a lovely, spacious, well designed and beautifully decorated villa, it is foremost the friendliness and hospitality which made me enjoy everyday.
We also had some great outings, to the buddhist monastery, which I found inspiring and the lake Bratan with its temple.
Tasting wonderful coffee at the coffee plantation, visiting the market of Singaraja. All with the expert and friendly guidance of driver Ketut.
Time has flown and tomorrow we leave with very fond memories of our stay and hoping to come back again.
Outside Pastika and the gardeners, inside Desi and Gusti, all are amazing staff who have taken very good care of us.

Just woww! Thank you for sharing your little paradise.



Wij hebben enorm genoten van het droomhuis. Het is fantastisch om te zien hoe een droom in Azie ook echt kan uitkomen.
Wij hebben ook al vaak aan een 2e huis in zuid-oost Azië gedacht, maar nu we hier een paar dagen doorgebracht hebben, zijn we er ook zeker van. Het huis is echt perfect en het beste compliment is dat we er zo een kopie van zouden willen maken. Zelfs met wat regenachtig weer hebben we het hier prima kunnen uithouden.
Na 10 jaar oost Azië wordt het tijd om naar het zuiden af te zakken.



Wat was het een voorrecht om een week in jullie prachtige villa te verblijven ! We hebben genoten van het heerlijke huis, het schitterende uitzicht, de fijne zitplekjes, het perfecte zwembad en van de liefdevolle verzorging en de heerlijke maaltijden van Indri en Desi.
Bijzonder was ook het spotten van dolfijnen bij zonsopgang. Helemaal alleen in een bootje op zee de zon op zien komen en na een tijdje varen opeens een groep dolfijnen zien....een niet te vergeten ervaring.
Omdat we hier waren met Nyepi (het Hindoestaans nieuwjaar) hebben we van dichtbij veel ceremonies mee kunnen maken. Heel bijzonder om te zien hoe oud en jong met heel veel overgave hun geloof beleven. Tijdens Nyepi was het van 's morgens 6:00 tot de andere morgen 6:00 doodstil, alle lichten waren uit en de mensen bleven in hun huis. Zelfs het vliegveld was gesloten....

Al met al een onvergetelijke 3 weken gehad op Bali, maar deze laatste was met stip de beste !!! Bedankt daarvoor.

Vriendelijke groet, Pim en Willie


Het zag er paradijselijk uit op de foto's, maar de werkelijkheid was nog mooier!! We hebben genoten van de villa, het zwembad en de verwennerij door Indri en Desi! Ze hebben heerlijk voor ons gekookt, we mochten helemaal niks zelf doen, dus dat zal weer erg tegenvallen thuis.
Met Ketut, de chauffeur, hebben we veel leuke trips gemaakt naar o.a. Singaraja (wat een markt!); Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, gewijd aan de godin van het Bratan meer, Dewi Danu - met onderweg een bezoek aan een waterval. En als hoogte punt het snorkelen bij Menjagan eiland voor de noord-west kust (wel enorm verbrand; een T-shirt aan tijdens het snorkelen is geen overbodige luxe!).
Dank voor het zeer aangename verblijf hier! Morgen vertrekken we naar Ubud naar een - volgens verhalen - even mooie villa...We zijn benieuwd! Wie weet tot een volgende keer,

hartelijke groet Claudia & Allard

PS we vergeten nog de boottocht om 6:00 's ochtends voor de kust, die ons een schitterende zons opgang en een mooie dolfijnen show opleverde! Nog nooit zoveel dolfijnen (ook baby's) van dichtbij gezien


Living in Vietnam we are used to the climate, powercuts etc. But there is more.
We stayed here with our 7-year daugther and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The swimmingpool is great and we used it multiple times every day
Great attending staff and good food makes it to a holiday that will be remembered. And finally on our last day the dolphins showed up and made a great show for us.

Thanks everybody, Eddy, Koko + Khanh


Na een lekke band te hebben verwisseld tijdens de reis naar de villa, kwamen we om 23:00 aan en de hele staf verwelkomde ons! Fantastisch. Wij hebben bijzonder genoten van de vriendelijke staf en werkelijk heerlijk gegeten. Kortom een fantastische vakantie gehad!
