“Villa Joss is gorgeous. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the staff is top notch. It is a newer villa, but still kept some of the Balinese charm. The entrance with the Coi Fish, reading room/office, living areas, and the pool was perfect for our vacation. Both intimate, yet stately at the same time.”

Cindy N, United States

May 30th, 2014 – June 2nd, 2014

“Our party of 7 adults and 3 children spent a wonderful 4 days and 3 nights at the villa. The quality of service was especially impressive. The staff were very professional – attentive without being intrusive and as far as I recall, never said “no” to a request! We always came back from an outing to a nicely tidied up place and towels were aptly replenished. A minor complaint from the occupiers of the twin room upstairs was that their floor felt dusty on the first day but it got better. The staff had explained that some refurbishing had taken place before. On average, we ate in twice a day. Breakfast was good (the crepes were popular) and the satay at lunch was succulent. But the BBQ dinner…definitely the greatest hit of the party. The food was perfection – we had steak, lamb, prawns, corn, mashed potato, the whole shindig and we loved everything! Will come back again. Well done!”

“Words will never do this magnificent Villa the justice it deserves, it was sheer paradise. From the moment you walk through the front door, you feel completely at peace, filled with a sense of tranquility. The staff exceeded all our expectations and more in relation to hospitality, cleanliness and the food prepared for us all on a daily basis. Cannot speak more highly of the Villa and the services and facilities provided. I would highly recommend it to anyone, particularly families with children. I commend the owner for their foresight in building such a warm, welcoming, comfortable and inviting Villa… Again, thank you to each and every staff member involved in ensuring we had an enjoyable stay and for their forever happy smiling faces. A special thank you to Putu and Maday for their kind undivided assistance throughout the day. Thank you thank you thank you for making our trip to Bali an enjoyable and memorable one. Wishing you continued success always….. you deserve it. Cannot wait to visit the staff and crew at Villa Joss again in the very near future. Kind regards…… Nella Fedele, Melbourne Victoria ”

“We found our time at the Villa most enjoyable. The staff overall were excellent with Putu and chef Ketut standouts. They were obliging and simply fantastic. The food was of the highest standard, easily the best we’ve experienced at villas in Bali and right up there with our best experiences from around the world. We were helped out with transport (literally on a motorbike in one case of a lost guest) and advice freely and regularly. The only negative was a slight drop off in service (eg lack of fresh towels)but I’m sure this related to our lack of tipping during the week. This was due to the fact that we intended to only do it once at the end as it was only an 8 day stay. Anyway, that wasn’t a major problem and it was easily fixed. Overall excellent and would certainly recommend.”

Kevin Clarke, Australia

“This villa is great! Stayed there for 3 nights and it’s not enough! Fantastic food by the chef! We were so well taken care of by the service staff. The Condition of the villa is great as well.. and doesnt differ much from the pictures on the website.”

“We recently had a 5 day stay at Villa Joss. We took seven members of our family plus a 7mth old baby. The villa was fantastic & the staff brilliant. Nothing was ever too much trouble and always done with a smile. We would reccommend the villa to anyone wanting a special break in Bali. Would love to return Pauline Perth W.A.”

Pauline Mincham, Australia

October 21st, 2012 – October 31st, 2012

“Our first family visit to Bali was a delight with superb service and quality facilities. The Vila was magnificently presented, clean and fresh. The meals, presentation and service where better than most of the restaurants we ate at. The staff where very helpful, pleasant and courteous. The service levels where 5 star. Nothing was a problem to them and they tended to our every need. Excursions and trips where organised and the drivers they obtained for us where all helpful and customer focused.”

“Fantastic set-up with maximum use of space available. Constant breeze throughout the house and throughout the day so never feel hot, even when sitting on the chaise loungers. Great location next door on either side to Naughty Nuri’s and Karma Beach Club. Ideal for families with younger kids as the rooms (2 downstairs, 2 upstairs) are next to each other. ”

“The staff made the Villa They were wonderful especially Made and Putu!We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Joss! perfectly located not too far from Seminyak but far enough from the hustle and bustle. We loved it and hope to visit again soon! ”

MC, Australia

February 4th, 2012 – February 11th, 2012

“We loved our stay at the Villa Joss! It is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The location is close to the beach and just a quick cab ride to the shops, bars and restaurants in Seminyak. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The only issue we had was constantly being asked for money by the staff for groceries, etc. We eliminated that by giving them a large sum of cash to apply towards any household expenses we incurred. The staff did keep all receipts and a careful record of all expenses. It would be beneficial to inform guest prior to arrival that they need to pay for groceries up front, so a vacation isn’t interrupted by daily requests for payment. Other than that, it couldn’t have been a better experience!”
