“This villa was even more beautiful than the photos”
3rd July, 2017
“This villa was even more beautiful than the photos. It was quiet and relaxing, the pool was amazing for photos. The view is magnificent, and the beach is only about 10 minutes away. The staff were all very friendly, kind, and welcoming. They enhanced the experience that much more. The food prepared by Vicki was delicious and reasonable in price. As a plus, the internet was fast, the Bluetooth speaker system and airconditioner were great, and the beds were extremely comfortable. I hope I get the opportunity to stay again the next time I travel to Bali! ”
Guest’s private feedback:
“The villa was absolutely lovely! All the staff were welcoming, friendly, and made the overall experience at the villa that much better. Thank you for all your help and advice, Polly. We made unforgettable memories for my 21st and I bonded with my family and friends. There was never a moment where anyone wasn’t enjoying themselves. Thank you so much”
La Balian Villa and Retreat was Spectacular
“Labalian villa and retreat was spectacular. The villa was amazing, beautiful and secluded, the staff were fantastic and super helpful, and the host was so easy to communicate with and accomodating. We held our wedding at the villa in the beautiful yoga hut and staff catered for us, decorations were simply beautiful and the whole experience was perfect. One tip to future guests is plan your meals in advance and the staff will make whatever you want at very affordable prices but you must give them time to get to the markets to buy the food for you… just think one to two meals ahead and get your head count. The food was delicious and healthy and clean water provided. The pool was lovely and the grounds stunning… i thoroughly recommend this place for relaxing holiday, yoga retreat or wedding/celebration like us… simply awesome. Cannot thank the host Polly, boss Viki and the staff enough.”

This is a wonderful place for relaxing and exploring the island’s nature. The villa is located overlooking the rice paddies and surrounded by wild jungle. Complete silence and harmony with nature. Villa is suitable for family vacation, and that a big company. We lived there now of 14 people and had plenty of space, both during the day by the pool and in the evenings in the lobby. The villa has all as descriptions and photos. You can rent bikes, have a massage, arrange lunch / dinner. 2 km is a beach with black sand and great views. We recommend to visit this place, you will not regret.

The most romantic and beautiful lush setting close to the beach and cute village. Truly 5 star resort with all the mod cons and lovely staff who really know how to look after you. I’ll be back. Thank you.

We are a family of 14 adults and 4 children who had 14 wonderful days in the villa. Photos 100% corresponds to reality, lovely rooms where everything functional and in good condition. The staff is absolutely wonderful, very concerning and welcoming. Polly is super quick to respond to communications and proactive terms. External facilities and services. We ate almost all our meals in the house where both raw materials and food was impeccable Overall a great stay, as highly recommended.

We were 10 Adults and 5 children ranging in age from 88yrs – 5mths. We have been to Bali many times are were wanting to experience the Bali of old with mod cons. This beautiful Villa could not have been more perfect. It is set in blissfully quiet rice paddies in the countryside. The 8 bedrooms are all lovely and have great aircon, fantastic bathrooms and their own TV’s. The infinity pool is very large with a great swim-out for the little ones. We dined on the outdoor patio every night. Vicki prepared beautiful lunches and dinners all very reasonably priced. We did venture down to the local beach for lunch twice which was enjoyable. All the staff are amazing, we wanted to take them home with us! Polly, the owner, was great to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. It is a long drive from the airport (2-3hrs) but well worth it. We dream that we will return again one day.
Classic Balinese Style with Elegant Modern Twist

In search of a less hectic Bali break than our usual Legian/Seminyak experience, my husband and I ventured a little further afield to Tabanan and the beautiful La Balian. Set amongst emerald green rice paddies and jungle, yet only minutes from an internationally famous surf beach, the location suited us perfectly. Our host Polly, had thought of everything to ensure our late night arrival went smoothly and we were greeted by wonderful staff and a stunning meal. All the suites are beautifully appointed, comfortable and stylish, set amongst the lush gardens. A classic understated elegance resonates though the whole property. We were looked after beautifully by the staff and the choice of menu and quality of meals provided was first class and to be applauded. We had a fantastic and relaxing stay and will definitely be returning with other family members to enjoy the beautiful La Balian yet again.

We are from Germany and got married in Bali and rented La Balian Villa and Retreat for a week to host our family. All in all we were 14 people and occupied all 8 bedrooms. The villa is about a 2 hour drive from the airport and lies within lush green rice fields. We were warmly greeted by the staff with welcome drinks and refreshments and our first impression was even better than we had expected from the pictures online. The rooms are modern and furnished in a simple, minimalistic style with outdoor bathrooms surrounded by jungle. The AC worked well and was very quiet. The staff cleans everyday and changes towels and linens (two very sweet girls who will take care of you and organize everything from daytrips to Ubud to massages at the villa). The infinity pool is beyond awesome, also very clean and from the edge you have a great, relaxing view over the rice fields. If you’re looking for a luxury getaway that is not overrun by tourists, very reasonably priced and with all the comforts and amenities anyone could wish for, then this is the right spot for you. And don’t make the mistake to book only 1 or 2 nights. You most certainly will regret it!
