I spent a few days at this beautiful retreat together with my family and friends. This place located in the rainforest for a relaxing time out of the city burst, is so magic and peaceful that time almost stops. The host Juli and her straff took care of us, served delicious food and made everything they could to make our stay unforgettable, i love this place and will definately come back.

This retreat is a wonderful place to stay. Juli and her staff are so nice and attentive to every need that you feel like you've found a little piece of heaven on the Isle of the Gods. And the food! Gourmet Balinese food for every meal - everything is so damn good. My only complaint is I gain too much weight every time I stay there. But, I highly recommend this haven of quiet beauty.

The only regret that I have about my stay here, is that it wasn't long enough. I'm fortunate enough to travel a ton for work and for personal and have been able to stay in some really amazing places. This place has been my absolute favorite! In fact, it still feels like a dream. Let's talk location...when you're there, it's like you have your own private estate, on the edge of a cliff, in the middle of a jungle. The only noise you hear is the gushing river at the bottom of the cliff and the cutest darn monkeys chilling on the edge of the forest. The rooms are SUPER spacious, have their own private porches AND THERE ARE SCREENS ON THE WINDOWS!!! This is important to note because most places in Bali don't have screens and you have to share your room with all sorts of creatures. The rooms lux and have lots of local wood and TONS of windows so you feel like you're sleeping in the jungle... but with out all the creatures. The property has it's own private garden where a lot of the produce they cook for your lunches and dinner comes from. I spent just over 4 weeks in Bali and my favorite meals came from the kitchen at Bali River Retreat. You'll never find Sambal anywhere like you do here. Trust me... I tried! Also, they make their own jams at breakfast which vary season to season. Lucky me, I got the mango jam (*drooling as I type). I spent a lot of time playing down by the river living out My "Fern Gully" dreams, but I also spent a lot of time in their infinity pool and just lounged around reading books in the open aired living space. Also, I have to mention, when you want a fresh coconut, the team literally climbs one of the many trees on the property and cuts one down for you. If you're going to Bali and you want LUX jungle vibes, you found your place. I've legit already planned my next trip. Juli (the property manager) and her team are absolutely amazing and so helpful. I wish they could travel with me everywhere I went.

What a top property in Bali! Everything was seamlessly arranged on this trip by the resort's manger Juli. We were a group of 5 on a mountain biking trip from SG. Juli arranged extra transport for our bikes and made sure they were safely transported to and from the airport. Upon reaching the villa, we were warmly greeted by the staff who helped us with our luggage etc. The only problem we had was choosing which room to stay in, ha! all the room were spacious and well furnished. Food was fantastic as well - the crew whipped up several Balinese dishes that were all on point. tell them in advance what you want and they'll try their best to prepare it. Would definitely recommend those who are looking for a good time with mates, family, fitness retreat etc to book the entire property. I'll be back - The Terminator
