Above and beyond my expectations!!! Dear Tom & Rene, I just want to say thank you for allowing me to stay at your beautiful villa... it is absolutely stunning. Very clean, thanks to the amazing on hand staff. Ketut, Anton, & Alex made my stay at Villa Champa one to remember forever. It was beyond PERFECT! They took care of me just like family! I most certainly will be telling everyone about villa champa and I will most definitely be coming back! Also a huge thank you to Anton, he is truly an amazing soul! He made sure I was safe the entire 2 weeks of my stay. (Even though Bali is extremely safe, traveling alone, families, etc.) Me and my family couldn’t thank him and the staff at villa champa enough! Thank you for everything!!! I can’t wait to be back!

Serenely magic We’ve stayed in Bali numerous times but this has to be one of the best villas we’ve stayed at. Anto and his staff are beautiful. The villa is immaculate, spacious with lots of fans to capture the cool air. Pool and garden are stunning. We will definitely be back!

Amazing experience! Villa Champa was one of the best places i've ever stayed. The house was exactly as shown in the photos, with ample room and ample amenities. Everything was always kept extremely clean and towels etc were topped up and washed regularly. We felt extremely safe staying in the Villa knowing that the staff were always around. Even though thy were always around they kept their distance and made you feel as though they were there to always help without smothering you. The location was a little bit out of town, although that was not an issue at all having Anto to drive throughout the day. Breakfast was available on request and Ketut cooked up the most delicious scrambled eggs and pancakes. She was so quiet and clean throughout cooking you could barely tell she was there. Ketut also looked dafter washing and cleaning up which was beyond amazing, not what we expected at all and we were very thankful. The best part about staying at Villa Champa was driving with Anto. We had never met such a happy, kind, lovely person whom was delighted to take us places whenever we would need. He gave awesome suggestions for what to do during the day and night. He always waited around for us and made us feel extremely safe knowing he was close by when it was night time. We couldn't thank Anto enough for his services, he really did make our whole trip to Bali. Moving to the next villa in Canggu just didn't feel the same without him. Thanks for letting us stay here, we loved every minute of it and adored the staff! We will be back for sure!

Amazing villa & Amazing staff We have just stayed 5 nights in Villa Champa with myself and 4 friends and we were absolutely blown away by the villa itself and the service of the staff on site. The villa was beautiful and had everything we needed and the pool was amazing which made it easy to relax at home on the days you didn’t want to do anything.. Alex, Katut and Anto were so hospitable and friendly and met all of our needs! They honestly went above and beyond :) Need to give a special shout out to Anto, he was our knight in shining armour - I have never met a more kind hearted and friendly person and he looked after us so well (even when we were sometimes menaces)! Couldn’t recommend a better place to stay when visiting Bali :)

Absolutely Perfect Having just returned to the UK after nearly three weeks stay at Villa Champa we would like to take this opportunity of thanking Tom and Rene, and of course the Villa Staff for the perfect holiday. The initial enquiry and booking process was smooth and efficient using the villa web site with all questions answered quickly and efficiently. Upon our arrival at Denpasar International Airport, we were promptly met by Anton, who introduced himself and drove us the 25 minute journey to the Villa in the Champa transport, which easily accommodated four of us,Anton and our luggage . At the Villa, we was warmly greeted by the staff, and was offered welcome drinks and snacks and gave us a comprehensive guided tour of our holiday home. To be honest, the pictures on the web site, though accurate, do not do justice to this lovely property and surrounding grounds. The Villa is tastefully decorated, immaculately clean with a fantastic private pool surrounded by lovely gardens. Once inside the compound it provides a cool, tranquil and luxurious environment, 24 hours per day. We ate at the Villa on several occasions and without exception the meals were all perfectly prepared and presented and delicious. In particular, the bar-barque was exceptional good, which on this occasion consisted mainly of locally caught fish, prawns, crabs etc. Anto not only proved to be an extremely good driver and knowledgeable guide but became our friend, as did Alex, Ndari, Ketut and of course Bruno (the lovable dog). Nothing was too much trouble for the team, who provided for our needs in a friendly, efficient and professional manner. The car/ driver is an integral part of the Villa rental and adds to the shear luxury of the experience. This holiday was the perfect introduction to Bali and Villa Champa is highly recommended for anyone seeking the perfect holiday home in this beautiful country. Thank you to all that made this experience possible.

Brilliant villa and brilliant facilities for the family to relax at. Villa champa is a high quality villa away from the hustle and bustle of Bali. The facilities are first class and the managers and staff could not do enough to make this a memorable stay. We travelled with a 5 months old baby and the facilities were perfect with staff lending a hand at every opportunity. We were even able to relax and eat our breakfast as Charlie was whisked away for proper Balinese pampering every morning!!! Food of all varieties was cooked and this was to perfection and always with a big, friendly smile. The accommodation was luxurious but still comfortable and the large family felt at home immediately. The pool was perfect size for lengths and we spent most days in and out and of course taking regular refreshment!!!. Villa champa supplied a driver and anto was a first rate driver and definitely the safest in bali. The team on a whole were great and thanks for your efforts looking after us all. We will see you all again next year.

Perfect Balinese hideaway luxury Although well hidden away, the setting is beautiful and the villa perfectly appointed. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The remote location makes no difference with the driver and transport provided to take you anywhere you want. Had a wonderful family holiday, which included a wedding, and couldn't have wanted anything more.

Comfortable and Classy We're a family of four with two kids of 7 and 9 staying in August 2016. We were really impressed by the high quality fixtures and furnishings in Villa Champa, but more than that, we were delighted by how clean everything was. We did not want for anything, comfort cooling in all the bedrooms including the master bathroom, sockets everywhere, so much storage space, really comfortable beds and furniture. The 3 TVs have a mass of satellite channels to choose from and I could plug my ipod into the music system. You can see the sea from the balcony and it is a drive to the coast, but this villa is superbly centrally located for access to all of South Kuta. The main road nearby is busy with motorbikes and traffic and we would not recommend walking out of the villa, but Anto, the driver is fantastic. He happily took us all over the place night and day (there is a small overtime surcharge). Anto was so friendly and accommodating, waiting for us to do our thing, no timetable necessary. He also introduced us to local restaurant GaRaSi, which we absolutely loved and wish we had returned rather than make the trip to Rock Bar or El Kabron, which were loud and overpriced. The rest of the staff were also superb. Breakfast was ready for us as we emerged every morning with a friendly greeting. We also took advantage of the in house dining and babysitting, which were also faultless. There is a plot of land that is farmed nearby, so you will hear the occasional cow bell and roosters in the morning are a fact of life in Bali, though it didn't bother us. Mosquitoes are also a fact of life, but the owners have gone out of their way to put repellent measures all over the house. It was not a problem. Drinks and snacks were available at very reasonable rates and were kept well stocked. Laundry was collected and returned within 24 hours, again at really reasonable rates. Truly, we had such a fine stay at this peaceful haven that we were sad to leave. We have stayed at other locations around Bali that can not compare.

A serene experience Privileged to have been able to enjoy this home for the six nights we were there. Very comfortable, surprisingly quiet and lovely breezes enjoyed from the hillside location for the duration of our stay. Staff were very accommodating but kept their distance and the additional cost of services such as additional meals (breakfast was included in the price) and laundry were extremely reasonable. The car and driver (also included) were a blessing and a must given the quite - but not remote - location. Probably spent too much time in the car that would have been better spent with our two young daughters by the lovely pool!

Nice open air house in Bukit area Our group of 4 adults and 5 small kids had a very good stay at the house. The house is as beautiful as the pictures show it. Overall we really enjoyed the service : the cooking team is really nice, Anto the driver is perfect. He only brings you where you want to go, never tries to sell you anything unlike most of the drivers we met in Bali during our other trips. i just found the house manager a bit strict about a misunderstanding on the first day and again when we broke one ikea glass that we had to pay 5 dollars, I found that a bit narrow minded considering the total money we spent with them during our stay. The breakfast is really nice with a lot of choice of fresh food that they cook when you wake up. Concerning the house in itself just be aware that it is an open concept, the insects become then part of your life especially at dinner time ;o). But I have to say that we liked this natural way of living. And all the bedrooms can close so you can avoid mosquitoes at night. The rooms are all very clean. There are some toys for the kids and the house is very well laid out for them, there is a fence all around the pool for example. 2 things missing : an expresso machine and mosquito nets in the rooms.
