“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My girlfriend and I stayed at Diana's and Jim's place unfortunately only one night. We stayed in about a dozen places during our Bali trip and Banana Villa was one of the best. This is not a high-end hotel nor a homestay, but somewhere in between. It was just right for us. The view is stunning. The pool is great. The garden is splendid. The breakfast was spot on. The apartment is more than sufficient in size and appliances and extremely spotless (given that one is in such a tropical space). There are only two apartments which makes the place feel very cozy. But the real draw of the place are Diana and Jim, who were generous and made us feel at home. They aim to treat their visitors as friends rather than guests. That only works well of course if visitors repay that with the same sort of consideration. If you do, you will have a fabulous time. If you have your own transport, it is a great alternative to staying in Munduk. Diana, Jim, all the very best for your future.

“WOW !! BREATHTAKING, MUST STAY HERE.”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

WOW, just WOW !!! Banana villa is a beautiful, quite, luxury villa found in the jungle area over looking Lovina. Truly BREATHTAKING.
The Modern New fitted kitchen has all appliances. WIFI dongle which you can take everywhere (Good signal). Refreshing salt water pool With outdoor shower. Great breakfast with home made cinnamon buns.

Jim and Diana (Hostess with the mostess) went above and beyond to make our stay truly amazing. Nothing was a problem. Great information and advice given.
Diana took us to the local market to buy fresh produce i.e chicken, vegetables and fruit for the cheapest local price.
Jim introduced us to his friend James 007 who provided us with the cheapest price for excursions and transport. (Best price anywhere)
Everything your looking for in Bali is here.
You MUST STAY HERE but when you do, you will not want to leave.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

we had a wonderful time at this beautiful place, the hosts Diana and Jim gave us a warm welcome. The house and the pool has an awesome view, you have a see view directly from the bed.
the house is not easy to find with usual navigation ( maps.me) but the hosts were picking us up and took us to the house.
beautiful place and great conversations, we would definitely go there again!

“We found our nook, where dreams come true...”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Diana & Jim have been helpful and such wonderful hosts, we got lost while driving and searching. Upon calling them they drove all the way down to retrieve us :)
Banana Villa Retreat makes us feel like a second home. This is heaven on earth, our 4 hours' drive in the morning was well worth it. The gardens, flowers and fruits are all around the property, we even discovered butterflies and wonderful insects. The swimming pool is a salt water pool so it is not only good for your skin but for the environment. If you are driving please DON'T use GPS, instead find the road Jalan AA Pandji Tisna off the main Lovina road and following this road up the hill. Jim will put up signs soon, no worries. Unfortunately we only had one night to spare but we will be back.

“Gotta come back”
Reviewed 13 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The place was simply gorgeous. The view is breathtaking, the air cool and crisp and you couldn't get enough of the tasty breakfast. Diana and Jim were so warm and friendly we felt like staying with family. The locals we got the opportunity to interact with were also very friendly and helped us around. If you haven't stayed here, you definitely must.
