Our 4th time here and we hope more to come!
Every year we think it couldn’t possibly be better and yet the next time it is. We are so thankful to Susanne and Jesper for opening their beautiful home and allowing us to experience their exquisite Bali Paradise.
But most of all we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet the staff. Komang – surely one of the nicest, most efficient men to be found on the island. Putu – whose cooking is quite simply the best we have ever experienced and this year we have only eaten out a couple of times and each time have felt ‘that Putu does is better’. The lovely Sri – whose sweet smile and good morning (and banana pancakes and sweet buns and omelettes) made our breakfasts such a pleasure. Bagus – ever cheerful and full of fun, Made – Gamelan rock God!! And the gorgeous gardeners – who work so hard and keep this lush green Paradise so beautifully. These folk have become very dear to us and work with such grace and kindness and generosity to ensure we have a perfekt time – and we do.
These have been the best holidays of my life and ‘thank you’ doesn’t come close to expressing our gratitude and delight.
With much love Karen Buck – Australia
Thank you all for a wonderful stay. This is one of the best places we have ever been to. We are all already making plans for how to be able to come back again. Even though it is a very long journey for us to get here you all made it more than worth wile.
We hope to see you again next year!

Dear owners and staff,
Thank you for letting us into your Paradise! And thank you for your overwhelming hospitality. We will never forget Villa Bayad.
We enjoyed all the Bali-experiences: Houseblessing, cremation, wedding, ricepaddy-walks, the small villages, temples, snorkelling in the blue ocean ect. ect. Also the quiet hours in the villa, the beautiful garden and the pool was a balm for the soul.
A big thank you to the villa staff for their friendliness and competence. Nowhere in Bali did we have better food than in the villa when Putu and Sri were in the kitchen.

To all staff of Villa Bayad,
it’s really nice to be back again. This is our second time here and it definitely feels like home. Seeing all the staff again is definitely a big plus.
Food and service were great as usual.
Thank you again everyone!
Love always, Mr. and Mrs. Priscilla – Taiwan
This place is truly wonderful! It’s like Paradise.
At home I made a paper about the wonders of the world, and also the hanging garden of Babylon were a subject. Villa Bayad reminded me very much of that!
The pool was really nice. I loved the fact that it’s an infinity pool. I saw a lot of frogs (even one in our bathroom near the toilet, haha).
The ricefields are astonishing. There grows (on the sides) so much fruit as well.
Thank you so much for this wonderful stay!

Hi Villa Bayad,
I had, am having a beautiful time here! The rooms are lovely with all the open spaces and I like the sunny warm weather while sitting here when it’s ugly weather in Holland!
Also I liked the staff very much they were always gentle and Putu is an amazing cook! (Putu you also have a very pretty daughter)
Just like Suze I liked the fact that the pool is an infinity pool.
We went rafting nearby which was very much fun (I would recommend it). So visitors, be prepared for a very nice stay at Villa Bayad!

to stay in such an incredible place as Villa Bayad and to be tended to by such a great staff is an amazing experience. Pictures don’t do right to the villa’s splendour. We’re very fortunate to have stayed here and we’ll never forget. Thank you for all your kindness and concern.
All the best Hans
I have made pictures of every corner in the garden and also the houses of Villa Bayad. But the real spirit you can only experience by yourself. Good reason to plan a return-trip sometime.
The staff was great and so careful to all our needs, even the needs we were not aware off! 🙂
Thank you so much, kisses from Holland.

It is our second time to Villa Bayad, we have enjoyed ourselves just as much, if not more so, during this visit.
Komang, Bagus and Putu were flourless in their efforts and the rest of the staff so kind and friendly that we will cherish our great memories with them. Kai really enjoyed his fishing and Johnathan loved the gym. We all loved the great meals and wonderful service.
This is a place that transforms a good time into a great time. Above all, the perfect setting and tranquil environment made us forget the bustling world outside. We feel Villa Bayad is the perfect place to experience all that is special about Bali.

This was such a beautiful place for the three generations of family to spend their time together.
The staff was so lovely, jumping to satisfy any request, always with a smile.
And the villa! We could go on and on about the beautiful architecture and landscaping – such an amazing place.
Many thanks to all.

To all the staff of Villa Bayad,
Thank you so much for your endless efforts to make our stay so wonderful and relaxing. We really enjoyed our time here. The food was incredible the service exceptional!
We hope that you enjoyed your time with us, in particular the Arak Attack Blackjack, the Mask Dancing Man and the Hat party! It was everything and more than we imagined. We cannot be more grateful! Looking forward to coming back soon, next time with suckling pig and fireworks!
Lots of love – Alice, Kiri, Josh, Ton
Dear Villa Bayad team,
thank you for a beautiful time. And the staff went out of their way to make our wedding day memorable. The staff spent a lot of time helping us prepare for our special day and without their help it would have been difficult to get everything done. Food is always exceptional, staff is always smiling. Only good memories from here. We will be back again.
Best wishes, Kartika and Jill
