About Tom and Rene Springall
Hi we are Rene and Tom Springall. As itinerant expats, we had nowhere to call home, but we both loved Bali and after several trips here over the years in 2004 we decided to buy our own villa in Candidasa and named it after our daughter (Villa Talia Vashti). Initially we just used our villa for family & friends, but we invested a lot of time training the staff to provide our expected high level of service. In 2006 we decided tentatively to offer our wonderful villa to others, and were amazed at the response – loads of people came and stayed and loved our little villa – it was a total revelation to us. So in 2013 we set up Kid Friendly Villas, to provide villas in Bali especially for families with kids and now own and manage 12 villas in Bali.
Why Tom and Rene Springall chose South Kuta
We love the family feel of Villa Leana. An ideal place for enjoying a great gathering. When we had young kids this place was fantastic. Stair gates and pool fences meant we knew where they were, but mostly they were down in the playroom, where the staff were happy to look after them giving us a well earned break.
What makes this Villa unique
The sunset views each night are to die for, but the views generally are just so uplifting. The staff (Supada and Kadek) are just amazing cooks - better than most restaurants. We eat like kings when we stay at Villa Leana.

Upon our arrival to the villa with our 3 teenagers at 1:30 in the morning, we couldn't resist sitting by the pool just to enjoy the amazing view. We stayed for five days and loved every minute of our time at the villa and in Bali. The staff could not have been more accommodating. We were treated to delicious local dishes without leaving the pool. And Supada had a local's knowledge of all the beaches and sights to be seen. We were very impressed and will certainly return.
Thanks so much for the glowing review for Villa Leana. It's so very satisfying for us to know that we managed to help you have a great vacation in Bali. Supada and his team are a real asset for the villa and we're glad that his local knowledge provided an extra dimension to the days spent in the Bukit area. Please don't leave if too long - we'll be very happy to have you return to Villa Leana or any of our other villas.
really a good place for family!!
we 11 adults and 2 children stay there for 2 nights, such a family friendly places!!!! The children like the swimming pool so mcuh! And the play room is also very full of fun. The staffs there are very helpful and welcome too！really a nice villa !
A beautiful oasis
We arrived to a lovely surprise of an oasis tucked in a secluded hilltop overlooking a majestic view. The 2 storey villa was extremely spacious and for a family of 4 with 2 young boys of 3 years and 21 mths old, the space was very welcoming with lots of room for them to run around. An bonus for the choice of this villa was also the kids playroom at the basement which was a hit with the kids. Lots of toys and books to play with.
With 2 young kids, I was initially skeptical about the safety around the pool but there’s a pool fence, and so it kept the little ones at bay. Villa Leana is especially kids friendly - with baby cot, high chair and even the transfer comes with a child seat which was much needed as we did travel out quite abit and with a 21 mth old, the car seat was a god send.
The fantastic staff were always on hand - Supada, Kadek and Adek who are always ever ready with a smile. They got on extremely well with my boys and we had the ladies babysat for 2 nights with a breeze. As it was Father’s Day weekend, I had some plans arranged and Supada helped with the planning effortlessly.
Its definitely one of the better managed Villas and I would certainly make a revisit especially since I’m all up for family friendly villas. Its also very close (approx 30 mins) to some of the fabulous restaurants around - Karma Kandara, Ayana, Belmond, El Kabron and one of the best ceramics warehouse - Jenggala. Fab view, fab staff, fab location makes a happy traveller!
Villa Leana was beautiful, high quality & friendly
The standard of the villa was first class. The rooms were clean, spacious and well maintained. The staff were a big feature, with their friendly nature and readiness to assist. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared. Good views of the distant ocean were available from most rooms and particularly over the infinity pool.
The villa is handy to the huge GWK statue that is under construction and will rival the Statue of Liberty. We thorougly recommend the villa (great value).
Thanks so much for taking the time to review Villa Leana; we're very grateful for your generous comments on the service and standard of the villa. Please feel welcome to return to any of our villas in the future - we'd be delighted to have you stay once more.

Secluded Bali Villas
Fantastic Views, Fantastic Staff, Fantastic Food.
Well what a remarkable and enjoyable stay at Villa Leana. The sunset (and all day) views over the infinity pool down the cliff to New Kuta Golf course and then to the beaches of Dreamland are truly spectacular.
6 Adults 3 small children and a baby were treated like royalty by the most friendly staff you could wish for. Thank you Supada, Kadack and Ade.
The food was restaurant quality, fresh, tasty and always prepared with care.
We will be back in July with 4 of our friends. I cant wait!!!!!!
Stunning view, spacious luxurious house.
We stayed at villa Leana in Jan 2015 with a large group. The villa is awesome with stunning view from dining and living room making the stay very memorable.
Each bedroom is massive, the bathroom is so spacious and the beds are so comfortable.
The pool is a bit small for us as we had 11-12 people all swimming at the same time but we had fun regardless. There's no shallow part for kids unfortunately. But my kids all brought swimming floaties so it's fine.
But the view from the pool made up for the size as it was absolutely stunning from up there. Relaxing on the lazy beach chair was great!
The hosts are so friendly and they all speak English well. They welcomed us in the middle of the night and send us off at dawn with a smile. They were always very willing to do whatever we asked. The bedroom gets cleaned daily.
There's fresh pool towel whenever we come home in the evening and we never got any complaint about the noise we made while swimming at midnight.
Breakfast is typical Aussie breakfast but they're well prepared including toasts bacon eggs sausages fruits and cereals. We ordered fried rice for breakfast and A few of us had a small lunch at the villa consisting of satay rice gado2 and fried chicken and the food were delicious and only costs us a fraction of the shop's pricing.
Distance from the main road is not too far as well. We stayed in the same area not long ago but it was further and more isolated. So for the view we get, the villa distance is fairly good. On the way to the villa there are plenty of nice street food (martabak, satay, etc) and restaurants worth visiting such as Fat Chow and the 'martabak' pop up shop outside Warung satay club.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and would highly recommend villa Leana.
Villa Leana is situated at the top of a large hill, with views in all directions, including out over the cliffs to the ocean in the distance, with the sun setting every night.
