• The Villa was beautiful, and it is such a great location. It was very close to Seminyak and Ech Beach, but was off of the main drag, so it was quiet and serene, in a neighborhood setting. The rooms are very spacious and incredibly comfortable, and the bathroom was large and beautiful. We stayed for 5 nights in February.The owner (Betty & Daniel) was great with recommendations for restaurants, and always eager to help. His wife makes homemade nasi goreng that is fantastic. For a B&B the breakfast is lovely (fresh fruit, toasts, bagels, hard boiled eggs and cheese), but if necessary the staff did offer to make us other things if we wanted. It was fine for us, since you overeat in Bali anyway – a light start seemed just right.

    There are several nice common spaces, including a large pool and bale and huge half open living area, the eating area (which feels like a closed-in porch), a library and room with big comfy couches and a 42″ LED TV. There is a great binder with reviews of local restaurants and lots of information on the local tourist attractions. Our bed was so comfortable I almost didn’t want to get up … until I remembered where I was. Every room has a private entrance opening onto the lovely grounds. We would definitely stay there again, and would highly recommend it for a relaxing evening respite between beach and tours.

    Just a short note to say, on behalf of us all, thank you for a fantastic holiday. We all had a great time. The villa is absolutely stunning and the staff were excellent. We would have loved to have stayed longer so you may hear from us again in the hope of another visit later in the year. My brother-in-law and I were amazed by the surf which according to the locals was big even for Bali. We are both now battered and bruised but grinning from ear to ear. Thanks again and please pass on our regards to all the staff that helped make our stay very memorable.

  • “Nous avons absolument apprécié notre séjour dans votre villa. Merci! Nous avons réalisé plus tard avec Antony que ce séjour nous a donné une toute nouvelle perspective rafraichissante de Bali comparé à nos séjours antérieurs. L’emplacement de la villa était génial et le fait d’avoir un chauffeur privé à notre disposition nous a permis de voir beaucoup plus que nous ne l’aurions pu si nous avions séjourné dans un hotel et nous avons particulièrement profité de l’intimité … très relaxante. Nous serions plus qu’heureux de recommander la villa et Villas de Luxe de Bali à nos amis et à la famille et, nous nous réjouissons d’avoir l’occasion de visiter Bali de nouveau. “

    le luxe et la tranquillité un vrai bonheur !

    Superbe villa, pisicne a débordement cuisine et salon entièrement ouvertes et que dire des salles de douches typiquement balinaises !!!!!! Cette villa est comme qui dirait luxueuse pour un prix correspondant à un hotel standard en France.
    Merci encore a Betty et tout le staff pour tous leurs services et surtout pour tous les bons petits coins a visiter …. je vous conseille de demander directement a Made pour visiter ce qui vaut vraiment le coup a Bali; en plus il vous proposera les services d’un chauffeur privé avec 4*4 pour vous rendre ou vous souhaitez….de Kerobokan à Ubud, en passant par Pantung Benoa et même venir vous chercher ou vous ramener a l’aéroport et tout ceci à un prix défiant toute conccurence !!!!!!!
    Et pour toi Daniel TERI MAKASIIIIIIIIII, vraiment merci pour ta simplicité et ta disponibilité.
    Bref n’hésitez par, voici ce que l’on appelle « Un bon tuyau »!
    A trés bientôt

  • » from Christina & Friends stayed Christmas 2015 –
    Villa Bali Marene is absolutely perfect! My friends and I had the most wonderful experience. We are five young professional couples who were looking for a relaxing yet cultural trip and Bali and it was amazing. The villa is gorgeous, immaculate, and perfect for 8 – 12 people. The rooms are a large size, the outside showers downstairs are divine, and the large water pool could not be better. Excellent décor and the villa is beautifully maintained. The villa is little outside of central Seminyak but a short cab or 5 – 8 minute motorbike can get you to the beaches and central Seminyak. A 24-hour mart is less than a 5 minute walk away. Massage -we had almost every day- just on call. However, the best feature of this villa is the staff. Made and Putu were incredible. Made went above and beyond the call of duty and scheduled tours and cabs and recommended the best local eats and shopping. He arranged for tour for the three of us from 8 a.m. in the morning to 8 p.m. in the evening with his brother that only cost $60 !! We went to Mount Batur, the rice fields, Monkey Forest, coffee plantations, shopping, Ubud, and so on and so forth. Made also arranged a great trip to Lembogan. He and Putu would deliver us breakfast each morning (coffee, fresh fruit, baguettes, etc) and they were absolutely delightful. We really miss them. Great value, very clean, safe and comfortable. Thank you Made, Putu, and Betty & Daniel the owners – I cannot wait to visit Villa Bali Marene again!!

    Our 12 days stay at the Bali Villa MARENE was amazing. From arrival to checking out the owner and the staff very helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make sure our say was amazing. The room number 2 was very clean and quiet. WE just was next the pool, so woke up and plunged in the lovely pool. My husband chose to have a romantic package added to our room as it was my birthday, on the date my husband requested the staff decorated the room with rose petals and floating candles. It was amazing.
    Breakfast was my favorite meal there. The staff will cook omelets to order and they will also make your coffee and toast so you can sit and relax.
    With great prices the INHOUSE MASSAGE is a great getaway to just indulge and spoil yourself. I cannot say it enough that the staff goes out of their way to make sure you are spoiled.
    The location is a little ways away from most of the tours but you can hire a private driver through the villa to take you on tour packages that are available to their guest. The Villa driver Made was awesome. He made sure we were taken care of outside the villa by making sure when we wanted to purchase something we got quality items without paying too much. The overall experience was truly worth another visit and I will be returning to Bali soon and will be booking another room at the Bali Villa MARENE, Umalas.

  • We stayed here for 6 nights and love it so much we stayed another 2 nights on return from Lombok. We had all villa and pool for our selves, service was impeccable, friendly staff, grounds beautiful, relaxing and incredible enjoyable. Betty organized 4 motorbikes with surfboard holder so we easy drove to different beaches and was great for our evenings out. You really can’t got past this Bali Villa Marene!!

    Staying August 2014, traveled as friends

    Bali Villa Marene was the perfect place to pick to start our Bali vacation. We stayed here 4 nights before going to Undud and than Lovina with 3 couples and 6 kids. We were looking for somewhere relaxing and tranquil slightly out of the way and this place certainly ticked all the boxes. The tropical style buildings and surroundings are just beautiful, and being just outside of busy Seminyak it was ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet around the pool or relaxing in the grounds.

    The staff are so welcoming and kind, they even unprompted noticed it was my  birthday (think they read the date from his passport) and surprised us at lunch with a birthday cake!
    The villa is about 10 minutes by car from Centre Seminyak and Echo Beach and a regular free shuttle service into town is provided or transport can be arranged for you at a small charge and local tours can be arranged via the front desk. We made good use of the spa treatments and the home cooking (the food is really good as are the drinks) for when we just felt like being lazy and not going out.
    The only slight draw back from being out in the fields is there isn’t anything in easy walking distance, and obviously for being in rural setting you get the noise of the animals (in particular a certain demented rooster next door) but that just adds to the charm.
    We certainly would recommend Villa Marene to anyone wanting to experience a true getaway.
