Stunning Villa for Peace, Quiet and Rest

  • 5 of 5

Villa CarakA is absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do the villa complete justice. During our almost 3 weeks on Bali, Villa CarakA ranks as the best place we stayed. We had initially planned on just laying our heads there, but after arriving, we ended up actually spending most afternoons/evenings and one full day just at the villa - wandering the grounds, swimming the beautiful pool, walking the back country roads and taking a nap under the bale. If you are truly seeking rest and relaxation this is the place to go - the staff is unobtrusive and you would never know there are individuals around.

We had most meals (breakfast and dinner) at the villa and the cooking was marvelous. We highly encourage you to partake of the Balinese cuisine. Excellent, excellent meals!

I would say the only negative (and it really isn't a negative) is the cost of the car/driver for the day. All other locations on Bali, a day would cost between IDR 400K and IDR 500K. Villa CarakA was the most expensive at between IDR 600K and IDR 700K per day. Granted this may be due to distance, but considering some of our other trips from the other villas in which we stayed were 2 -3 hours in length each way, we think we are comparing apples to apples. If you have an opportunity for another car/driver, I would recommend investigating.

Lastly, tip liberally. The staff deserve it. Remember, the average salary on Bali is IDR 1.3 million which is roughly US$100/95Euro per month. Putu and Jero (the housekeepers) did an outstanding job in the kitchen and taking care of all of our needs. Kadek and Rico arrived early every morning at 7 to take care of the massive grounds and literally, most of the time, we did not know they were around, even though, we were usually up by 6am. Lastly, Pendi, the night security guard is wonderful. He'd check in every night with us and we would usually end up having a conversation for an hour - discussing our day, life on Bali, his family and the like. A truly gentle and nice man. Even after working from 19h to 6h, he came by at 11 on our departure day to say goodbye and thank us for staying.

If you are headed to the north of Bali, don't mind being off the beaten path and want to disconnect, Villa CarakA is the place for you. We are even already considering our return for a longer time period!

This was the best vacation we had experienced.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for Ger supporting our wonderful vacation on the Villa CarakA.

We were very happy to have an excellent food Putu and Jero made and to drink a lots of the Bintang beer and wines almost everyday. And we have been relaxed and comfortable anytime in the rooms, garden and bathrooms Putu and Jero completely cleaned up.

Thank you very much for Kadet and Riko as a gardener maintained a beutiful garden and clean pool, their friendly smile made us happy anytime. We told them to take care of the heat stroke in the strong sun light for a long time working.

Goody, as a driver, transported us safely and rapidly to anywhere we wanted. We like cute three dogs in his house.

Pendi, as a security guard, came to the villa almost every evening, and talked with each other very friendly and frankly.

This was the best vacation we had experienced before. We hope to come again soon.

Stunning villa set in beautiful tranquil gardens

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here, just one couple, for a fabulous week. We could not fault this villa, position, or staff in any way. it was just the peaceful bliss that we wanted for our week on the north coast of Bali. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious, cooked to order. The housekeepers Putu and Jeru were fabulous. They kept the house beautifully clean and tidy, the gardens were stunning lovingly maintained daily by Karen and Rico . the pool where we swam hours every day was wonderful. We swam from first thing in the morning to last thing before bed. Swimming under the stars was truly amazing! The night watch Pendi was a chatty man at the end of the day. The dolphin boat came to the private beach one morning, and took us to see the wonderful creatures in the sea as the sun rose. Would recommend this trip. . Even if you didn't see the dolphins ( which we'd did) watching the sun rise from the mirror like sea was stunning. Thank you Ger for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We will be back Nigel and Jane !!!! Xx

Genieten in alle comfort en gastvrijheid

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben een week verbleven in Villa Caraka waar wij met open armen zijn ontvangen door het gastvrije personeel. Het heeft ons in deze week werkelijk aan niets ontbroken. De villa was schoon, het personeel bijzonder vriendelijk en hebben ons iedere dag voorzien van heerlijke maaltijden uit de Balinese keuken.

Ook naast het personeel aanwezig in de villa werden wij ondersteund door andere betrokken mensen die ons hebben geholpen met handige tips zodat wij optimaal konden genieten van onze tijd in Bali.

Wat ons betreft is dit een absolute aanrader en mochten wij Bali weer als reisbestemming kiezen wordt Villa Caraka wat ons betreft zeker weer onze verblijfplaats.
