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!!!

Stunning location in tranquil rural setting!

  • 5 of 5

We certainly appreciated the wonderful hospitality of Ria, Putu and their lovely family who go the extra mile to ensure that their guests have such an enjoyable stay at Villa Riang. This is no doubt true and is what attracted us to book in the first place.

We arrived there from England after two pretty exhausting flights and a car journey from the airport and we were instantly made very welcome. Next morning after breakfast we met with Ria and with some great Bali coffee we discussed our plans for the stay. Ria made some really helpful suggestions and we worked out an itinerary to explore real Bali. From that moment onwards our hopes and dreams began to be realised.

Due to the organised trips we enjoyed so many wonderful days out with varied and very memorable experiences! This truly made all the difference to our stay. We were also made very welcome by Ria’s family and spent a few lovely evenings together out dining with them, we ate some wonderful fish, swam in the pool with the girls, and had some great fun with her two boys exchanging tricks and playing games. In addition to this Carol & Ria got on very well from the beginning and we all enjoyed some fascinating conversation and exchanges of language and culture.

Our highlights were: Putu’s trek & Ria’s food afterwards comes highly recommended! An early morning Trip to Lovina Beach to see the dolphins with an 80% chance of a sighting and we were lucky! Trips out to the Buddhist monastery and The Holy hot springs, The rice terraces of Jatiluwih and the journey there with amazing vistas and views. The botanical gardens, stopping to explore a local market selling all kinds of exotic fruit, trying the Bali coffee and local delicacies. A trip to Kintamani and the still active volcano with views of deep craters and Mount Batur and the great lake. The views were truly stunning and we also enjoyed an amazing meal with Ria at a panoramic restaurant site.

The area has so much to offer and we certainly made the most of our stay. The views from the villa are stunning you feel like you are up in a forest canopy. The accommodation was excellent, the rooms were cleaned daily and the thoughtful placement of flowers in the rooms added a special touch. Ria and her friendly staff did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We enjoyed delicious lunches, Carol had several massages and we left both energised and relaxed. We would certainly recommend a stay here and would love to come again!

Trip oF a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Ria and her family make this Villa worth every second. The kindest most selfless beautiful people we have had the opportunity to meet. We actually stayed here longer then we had planned and it was April 2014 but it's taken so long the home away won't let me put in the date, I'm so sorry it's taken so long. The owner Miranda has made such a beautiful place in this magical land. It was my girlfriend and my little sister that traveled here the furthest from home we have all been. We all couldn't have felt more at home. Words really can't explain what we received from this trip but we are all so grateful! My advice would be to stay here and spend as much time with the beautiful family. Putu took us on his hike he offers we learned so much about the rice fields and the culture of Bali. We loved every minute. Thank you for the beautiful space to spend time and the experiences of family connection.

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.
