Puri Dana - Seminyak Oasis in Amazing Location

Bedrooms 5
Space 11,086 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Fully staffed 5BR / 6BA, two chefs, in-house spa menu, walk to shops and beach

Puri Dana is your private resort, set up for family style meals and celebrations by the pool. The entire five bedroom property is rented to groups of up to 13 guests at a time.

Walk to Seminyak's best beach clubs, restaurants and shops from our amazing location. We're just across the street from the five-star beachfront hotels.

Enjoy the privacy of the villa and grounds with your friends, family or co-workers. Our chefs will prepare gourmet meals served indoors or under the stars at night. The in-house spa team is on-call for massages, mani-pedis and facials.

Guest Access:

We have been blessed with wonderful guests over the past years, and have accumulated over 100 excellent reviews on different booking sites. Our approach to running Puri Dana is to treat our guests like friends and family.

We believe delicious food is especially important when on holiday. The owner is a gourmet chef and has worked extensively with the house staff on serving and preparing gorgeous feasts for our guests.

We have two wonderful full-time chefs, Wayan and Gusti, who together with our house staff of lovely ladies, can prepare almost anything you can request. Many guests say our food is better than even some of the more upscale restaurants in Bali.

For bookings made after 15 January, 2016, breakfast is included consisting of eggs, toast, fruits, coffee and juice.

All other meals are billed at the cost of groceries plus 20%. This translates into huge savings compared to restaurants as well as the convenience of dining in your own secluded enclave, especially easy for meals with little ones. We also arrange separate early meal times for children.

We can put on all kinds of special BBQs and birthday parties and are happy to use our wholesale contacts to order you wines by the case at great savings.

Interaction with Guests:

When you book with us, we are happy to give activity recommendations, make your restaurant reservations in advance, and we will ask you what groceries or special items we can have in the house upon your arrival. If you have something in mind that will make the house feel like home, just let us know and it will be our pleasure to arrange.

When you arrive in Bali, you'll be greeted with a sign at the airport and our drivers will have cool drinks in the car. One of the owners will greet you at the villa for a brief orientation then leave you to enjoy the property with your family, friends and our lovely staff.

Other Things to Note:

Be on your own schedule and if there's anything you need, just let us know and we'll use our Bali knowledge and contacts to find it for you. Our house is named Dana, after the Hindu word for the spirit of giving. We are happy when our guests leave with the feeling that they have received something special during their stay, some happiness and peace, to take home with them.

Traveling with little ones? Let us know and we'll gladly set up a sturdy pool fence and help you rent any other baby care items for the duration of your stay. Just let us know what you need, and we'll have it at the house waiting for you when you arrive.

We and our staff love kids and Puri Dana is a great place for all ages of children to have a wonderful vacation!

Thank you and welcome!

About Maria

Living the beautiful Bali lifestyle, I invite you and your family to enjoy our elegant, colonial style property with all the conveniences of a modern vacation home.

I’m an artist, traveler, gourmet chef, decorator and mom. I love my Bali dogs, meeting new friends, trying out new restaurants and going to art openings.

Today’s Bali is as diverse as its visitors. Referring Puri Dana guests to discovering the true Bali, to help them see why we love this island and its people gives us great pleasure.

If there’s anything we can help you with to get the most out of your holiday, just let us know and we’ll gladly help.

Thank you and welcome!



Maria purchased this villa in 2010

Why Maria chose Seminyak

Bali is a land of the spirit, of magic, you can feel the special atmosphere created by the Balinese people from the devotion they have to their culture. The scent of prayers and offerings are in the air everywhere you go.

We fell in love with the house and the location near the beach, the architecture of the house, the verandas and the chance of having a piece of paradise in Bali.

We named the property Dana after the Buddhist term of giving.

When you come to our home, we want to give you a feeling of happiness and wellbeing to take home with you. We hope you will see why we love Bali!

Bali is really a small island. It is easy to go out for a day trip and come back at night and still be social in the evening.

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location.. and gourmet meals! Walk out the gate from this hidden property to restaurants, stylish and cute shops, or hail a taxi to go further. If you only have one week in Bali, this is where you want to stay.

Quiet location, safe and secure. We are hidden behind a big gate. Very private and secluded, yet in the middle of Seminyak, and walking distance to the beach!

The large 5-star hotels across the street offer their restaurants and spas to enjoy as well, giving a measure of security for the area, as well as a lovely place for Sunday brunch!

We offer concierge services 24/7.. as hands on owners, with the insider tips about Bali, giving you more than a set of keys.

We have an in-house spa bathroom, our 6th bath, where our on-call massage therapists will give you very reasonably priced treatments, mani-pedis, facials or traditional Balinese Massage.

Our super chef will make delicious, healthy, fresh, organic Balinese, Thai, or Western meals.

The owners will give you the same concierge services found in a 5 star hotel, arranging volcano trekking, surfing lessons, yoga lessons at the villa, personal trainer, mountain biking, snorkeling trips, or spiritual tourism trips to energy healers, or Temples on special days.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been to Bali over 30 times in the last seven years and this villa is by far the best place I have stayed. Starting with Nikko and Maria's hospitality in checking us in, to the full time staff working two shifts to attend all our needs for cleaning, shopping for food, cooking for a party of 13 to providing our stay a wonderful experience. This villa is absolutely paradise! I love the pool, the quality of the furniture, lounges, amenities and garden surroundings are great. Location to the beach and trendy restaurants and boutiques is only a five minute walk. My hat is off to the Puri Dana staff for a most excellent stay. I would love to stay here again in the near future. Thank you Nikko and Maria (and staff) for taking such good care of us.

The property is an absolute oasis right near the beach in Seminyak

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were greeted by the owner Nikko, until our departure, nothing was a problem. The staff were very helpful and charming and the villa was beautiful. Our family of 10 had plenty of room to relax the pool is amazing and the gardens beautiful. From entering the property through the beautiful carved doorway you are greeted by something truly special and unique. The location of the property can not be better. Shops and restaurants are easily accessed and the beach is only a short stroll away. We would gladly stay at Maria and Nikko's property again. Thankyou for a wonderful stay

Amazing Oasis in Seminyak!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days here over the Chinese New Year break - we are a family of 4 and were also traveling with my parents. Upon arrival, we were collected from the airport and taken to this beautiful villa. We were met by the owner, Maria, who explained the location and how to best make use of all of the wonderful amenities available. The villa comes with a staff of lovely ladies who are there to meet our needs - we were absolutely spoiled! They were wonderful cooks, spoke English, and made us feel at home. The villa is also within walking distance of Seminyak Square, Ku De Ta, Potato Head Beach Club, and many other wonderful restaurants. We certainly hope to return again soon!

Beautiful 5star oasis in the best location

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute treat to stay in villa Puridana and we are looking forward to going back as soon as possible!

Just opposite the Legian resort, 5 minutes walk to the beach and off the main road where all the best shops and restaurants are , behind a Balinese wooden entrance door, you walk into a little piece of paradise.

if you are travelling with friends or family , the villa is ideal, as the rooms are spaced out and even though everyone is together, you have plenty of your own space.

Nikko welcomed us warmly and handed us a local phone, and gave us information on everything we wanted to know, from the restaurants to visit, places to go see etc.

The staff Ayu, gusti and Ratih organised scooters for us,

Organised Massage appointments( by the pool in the villa, amazing!)

And cooked the most delicious breakfast, lunches or whatever we desired.

My son fell in love with them, they were super playing games with him and looking after him, that I was able to enjoy a bit of shopping by myself- Ashe didn't want to leave the villa:)!

There are loads of DVDs in the living room also for movie nights...

I probably forgot to mention lots of things...

Just go and experience for yourself!

Beautiful, Tranqui Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Puri Dana is a stunning villa with wonderful staff who make you feel relaxed and comfortable from the minute you arrive. The location is absolutely perfect - town center is a short walking distance plus plenty of cool bars and restaurants are merely 5 - 10 minutes away. Although it's a very central location,as soon as you step through the doors to Puri Dana you are in your own little sanctuary! Stunning villa and highly recommended.

Villa Puri Dana is the place to be in Bali!

  • 5 of 5

We are true lovers of Bali for years, and could not dream of a better villa to spend our Christmas vacation. Puri Dana Villa is even better than the eye catching advertizing on internet.The accomodation is ideal for our family of three couples and 5 children from the age of 3 until 14. The pure Balinese architecture combines traditional materials and excellent renovation, surrounded by a lush Balinese garden. Beyond our expectation was the staff of 6 who did take care of us, with a special mention to our great cook, preparing every delicious Indonesian, Thai or Vietnamese meals that we ordered. Puri Dana is just meters aways from the beach in the most attractive Semyniak area. Fine dining, outstanding lounge bars and best spots are just walking distance. And we emphasize on the discreet but always useful advice provided by Maria. She owns this beautiful house and has plenty of good addresses to recommend, may plan excursions to Ubud and other touristic spots, and even propose some pure Balinese ceremonies to attend as we did and enjoyed.

We spent 5 stars vacation in Puri Dana

Magical stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa with a group of my friends while on break from university and I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Nikko and his staff certainly spoiled us and made sure that our time in Bali was spent taking in all that the island had to offer, from excursions to local cuisine, going above and beyond anything we had anticipated. The rooms were always well kept and we loved that fresh, purifed water was placed throughout the house and refilled regularly. The pool was stunning and we spent every night lounging around, feeling like royalty. Nikko even had his staff run out and get us more beer when we ran out one evening, which was incredibly convenient. The area also felt very safe and there were resorts all around us where we could go for dinner, drinks, and beach time. If I returned to Bali, I would definitely stay here again!
