Absolutely a perfect choice for me. I love the spot where it is situated. At sundown it is quiet and still. You are off the grid, well mostly, and it is heaven. The villa is furnished great, the beds extremely comfortable. The outdoor shower was awesome as was the tub. The pool was a slice of heaven. Mark and Petra were great checked in with us and helped us set up a few things. Khutut the cook was fantastic. Her food was fantastic and every meal we had was amazing. Khutut our driver was great. I could not imagine driving there. He he always made sure we were taken care of and that we were ok before staying with the car. When we went diving we left things with him and I did not worry for a second about the security. Aleck was great, the villa every day was cleaned. The pool was cleaned daily, beds taken care of just an amazing experience. I would do it again today if I could. Thank you Mark and Petra!!
Michael as a first time Bali (Asia too?) visitor was open to new experiences and adventures and was able to use the advise and support we've been able to develop over the years to get the absolute most out of the visit. From diving in Tulamben, visiting Tenganan to Virgin beach and shopping in Candi their days were as filled as they wanted them. After all the activity I think the peace and quiet of "home" Villa Surya, and the occasional relaxing massage was exactly right for them. We truly hope to see them both again and respectfully suggest not to eat the hamburgers in strange restaurants next time :)
Excellent villa and people
We spent almost two months here with 2 kids ages 5 years and 9 months. And I want to thank again Mark, Petra and all their staff for an excellent holiday. The villa itself is very comfortable. Cleaned and beds changed every day. Ketut does a great job cooking not only local recipies but also european. You get fresh home baked bread every day and if something that you want is not on the menu it will be cooked for you if at all possible. Alit can take you on great fishing. Everybody is very friendly and helpful and any problem is solved with thier help. The location of the villa is somewhat removed activity centers, but there's a car with a driver that will take you anywhere. The weather in this location is very nice and the whole 2 months that we spent there I could walk in swimming trunks and nothing else and it felt very comfortable, not too hot, nice breeze from the ocean. Very good place for relaxing and doing nothing.
Mikhail and family were a joy to have as guests. With little Mikhail daily helping catch fish in the ponds for the cats to his Papa calmly soaking up all things Balinese from the comfort of his deck-chair. Mrs. and the nanny spent most of their time playing with the baby and sharing some Russian specialties (pickles with carrots and cabbage) with anyone that could be convinced to try them (Balinese are not known for their love of sour - doesn't really exist in the culture). It was nice to see guests that had some serious time to get to know the country and culture (6 weeks!) and they still didn't run out of things to do. We all wish them all the best in their futures and very much hope they will come again when the baby is older and can do more things. We will tell Mark and Petra (not the owners) you said nice things about them and I'm sure they will be glad to have met you all too. Om Swastiastu (may your god be with you).
Our private little oasis
Thank you for sharing your wonderful little paradise. Petra we appreciated all the guidance you gave us and thank you Mark for the wonderful fish you provided us. Ketut's cooking is exceptional and your staff were all so friendly and helpful. We will be taking back such beautiful memories with us.
Guilles, Suzanne, Sylain, Danielle
P.S. We will miss our morning puppy visits.
Hiding their blushes :) many, many thanks
We had gazed longingly at the pictures and descriptions on your website for months....And then we finally arrived! And our expectations have been exceeded! Thank you for all your kindness, local knowledge, organisation of, and suggestions for, the touring we have done, and also for the ability for us to just laze around by the pool.
Food = fabulous *****!
Tours = terrific!!
Fishing = in the sea & in the pond = one of Hugo's most favourite activities!
Staff = superb! special *****
We have really loved our relaxing and active holiday here - thank you to Mark, Petra, Ketut, Alit, and Kadek.
You were also the perfect guests - happy, easy to please and not even bothered by the occasional rainy day (it has been the longest and most productive rainy season in several years).
We will pass on your wonderful comments to all and it must also be said it was a bit sad and very quiet after you left.
All the staff along with Mark and Petra send their regards and wishes for a speedy return. There's still sooooo much to see and do on Bali. Diving, whitewater rafting, trekking, mountain biking, learn surfing, etc, etc,.
Familienurlaub mit 3 Kindern - August 2016
Villa Surya sieht in Wirklichkeit genauso aus wie auf den Fotos. Den Ozean sieht man allerdings kaum. Die Villa befindet sich hinter Reisfeldern, an der Grenze zum Wald, komplett abgeschottet von jeglichem Lärm. man hört lediglich Frösche, Vogel, Hähne, ... und ab und zu den Gesang aus dem Wald wenn eine Zeremonie vorbereitet wird. Auf dem Grundstück befinden sich 2 Villen welche zur Miete stehen und ein Haus in dem der Vermieter wohnt. Der Strand vor den Reisterrassen ist nicht zum Baden geeignet und besteht aus dicken Felsblöcken. Die Vermieter sind sehr gastfreundlich und stehen mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung. Für Kinder gibt es im Garten viel zu entdecken: Schildkröten, Fische, Frösche, ....
Der Pool ist fantastisch in die Natur integriert.
Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und man kommt direkt in's Gespräch. Ketut bereitet sehr gute Mahlzeiten vor welche mit Restaurantqualität aufgetischt werden. Wir wurden von Ketut zu ihr nach Hause eingeladen, zu der Zeremonie/Bestattung ihres Vaters. Das war ein einmaliges Erlebnis! Die Zimmer sowie die gesamte Einrichtung sind sehr geschmackvoll und typisch Bali.
Insgesamt können wir Villa Surya nur empfehlen!
Zudem gibt es in Ost-Bali sehr viel zu entdecken und dieser Teil der Insel hat seinen ursprünglichen Charme erhalten. Die Villa ist ideal positioniert im Ort Jasri um Tagestouren in alle Richtungen zu starten.
Wir kommen gerne wieder !
Daniel, Fabienne und die Kinder.
Vielen herzlichen Dank! Daniel, Fabienne und Kinder ~
fuer eure bestaetigende Beschreibung und Bewertung der Villa Surya hier in Jasri, Karangasem, Ost-Bali.
Es freut uns sehr, dass Ihr euch hier wohlgefuehlt habt - vor allem auch dass eure 3 Kinder hier in der 'Natur' ein gutes Umfeld hatten um Flora und Fauna zu erkunden und auch genug Freiraum um aktiv den Tag zu gestalten.
Ein besonderes Danke fuer euer: "Wir kommen gerne wieder!"
Alles Gute und wir wuerden uns sehr freuen, euch eines Tages hier wieder begruessen zu duerfen!
A place out of time
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Surya. Clocks tick slower there so it's the ideal place to stay away from it all.
It is also ideal for families as the tropical garden has a lot to explore for children (fish ponds, plants, small beasts) and there is enough space for kids to run around. The pool of Villa Surya is large and spacious and can be used any time - unforgettable to swim at night with jungle sounds all around, enlighted by the stars of the southern hemisphere.
Ketut is a great cook and prepared all meals freshly according to our wishes. Marc and Petra are very gentle hosts who did everything possible to make our stay memorable. They provide a friendly english speaking driver who drove us with Balines patience to any place we wanted to see and there are some points of interest nearby.
The Villa itsself is proper and spacious, the bathrooms have openair showers.
We can absolutely recommend the Villa Surya.
Thank you so much for your kind an generous review and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here in Villa Surya. It was a pleasure to make your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible and we will always try our best to do so. Many thanks and we would be very happy to welcome you again. Best wishes!
Om Swastiastu :)
To name but a few of the tourist attractions in the vicinity of the villa there is Tenganan Village (original old Bali Aga village), Ujung Water Palace, Tirtagangga Water Gardens, Besakih Temple - Bali’s Mother Temple; Pura Lempuyang - one of the oldest temples in Bali and both 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 nightlife 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 the villa.
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.
All in all, the location of the villa is ideal for exploring beautiful, scenic and traditional East-Bali.
