Wine & Dine
A chef-service is included, all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks) are offered at ingredient price only. Meals are prepared with love and passion by Iluh, the best home cook of North Bali (that's just our modest opinion, but you will want to stay forever after tasting this!)
Iluh only uses fresh ingredients. She even makes the coconut-oil (both for cooking and massages) herself. Pure food, that is what she is about, spicy and mild, whatever you prefer.
You can choose from an extensive menu.
Just around the corner (within five minutes walking distance) you will find a small supermarket where you can buy drinks, but if you are relaxing at the pool and don't feel like getting out, you can of course also get a soda, water, beer and wine (wines only per bottle) at the pool.

Shirley Krapels purchased this villa in 2013
This accommodation is perfect for families with children, friends or couples. If you love to get to know the Balinese culture and stay in a modern, budget-friendly and beautiful accommodation in an authentic village, while being within walking distance of the centre of town and the beach, this is the perfect place.
What makes this property unique is that guests can feel and live the real Balinese life; experience village ceremonies, meet locals and be more than just a tourist.
I am writing this just after coming home from a short stay in Bali. We are an expat family from France, living in Singapore.
We always want to know the culture by interacting with locals and visiting less ocuppied touristic destinations. The village and surrounding is very Balinese, it gives you a really good feeling of how local community is like, how they live everyday the life.
The accomodation is beautiful, we love it really. It was so bright and the feeling was just so fantastique.The room we staying in was big and clean, nice decor, air conditioned, all we can wish for.
But what really makes Krastawa a special place are the people. Every single person there make our stay really special.Their English is not so good (but our English is not so good too), but their dedication, passion for this place and true enthusiasm to what they do is unique.
It is also a place where you're never ever get bored, with all the excursions offered. Our children (9, 11, 17, 20) had a fantastique time too. The youngest had great fun being able to swim in the evenings and the oldest were very happy to have their own room and ofcourse they go to some place to dance in the evening.
The only negative thing was that our holiday in Bali had ended and we wanted to stay longer. But we will come back to this place, we need some more time here!
Thank you for everything Wajan and family!
Our favourite spot on Bali! The villa is new, very comfortable and offers a luxury pool area. The best at Krastawa – without any doubt – is its team of Iluh, Ayu and Gede: They are so lovely and they did everything to make us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Iluh and Ayu pampered us with excellent food, flowers and massages; while our stay they cared about us like our family :-). Gede is an excellent and funny guide, speaks very well English and he is a safe driver. He helped us with many useful hints and he organized our trips to Sekumpul waterfalls and Menjangan island. We missed this place immediately after we left it and we will definitely come back one day.

We only stayed here for 4 nights which was too short but oh, so wonderful...We met many nice people from the local area and the team is fantastic. The house itself is very nicely decorated and it is spotless and brandnew.
The garden and pool are lovely and we had a lot of fun swimming at night after having the most amazing food which was prepared for us by the cook who went out of her way to serve us some of the best Asian dishes we ever tasted. If you go here, make sure to try the rice-taffle!
Small but great team, small but great villa. A great place to explore North Bali, which we liked a lot better than the south of Bali which is overcrowded by tourists.
We stayed with a baby and the team was very helpful and nice with her.
The service and especially the food prepared so well makes you feel like royalty. The staff is effortlessly helpful. Beautiful pool. Great. Thanks.
From the moment we were met at the airport by Gede to the moment we were delivered to our next hotel we had a fabulous time. The villa is small but gorgeous and not in a busy area so you don't have the sounds of scooters going past all night. The pool was lovely with relaxing sun beds. The breakfast was lovely and served with a smile by the lovely girl Ayu.The cook is amazing, she prepared different styles of food for us each night and we were happy to eat them all, everything tasted wonderful and you can see that she cooks from the heart. The gardener (who was also our driver) is a very funny guy who speaks English very well. Nothing is too much for him; he was always happy to share ideas about excursions and restaurants and he would not let us carry our own luggage.
The villa itself is wonderful, our rooms were very clean and airy and we loved the fact that we finally had enough closet space. The bathrooms are simple, modern and clean. The garden is a bit small, but we loved the way it was designed and we just had a lot of fun in the pool.
There is a little supermarket just around the corner, for buying drinks (we made cocktails, a lot of them!).
The town centre is just a couple of minutes walking, we visited many shops and bars.
Just a lovely little villa with nice people in an authentic Bali village. And very cheap, for a three bedroom villa the price was less than a hotelroom in the middle of the centre. I would surely recommend this house to everyone who is into the real Bali !
Villa Krastawa is located in Kalibukbuk, a lovely little village near Lovina Beach in the authentic North of Bali. Enjoy the real Balinese life or walk into the lively area of Lovina Beach within ten minutes.
There's lot's to do and see in the area, like: dolphin watching, snorkeling / scubadiving, visiting the thermal hot springs of Banjar, markets, Singaraja, Buddhist Monastery, Jungle tours, Waterfalls etc.
