The location of the villa is a little bit out of Lovina but this is easily over come by hiring a car or scooter or using the great Bob Bali driver. The views are stunning, you can see the sunsets over the water with the volcano on Java in the back ground, all the staff are amazing and will do every thing they can to make your stay amazing, the food Kadek and Dewa cook is fantastic and there is no need to leave the villa if you don't want to as they can even arrange beer to be delivered. We didn't go to Sing Sing 1 or 2 waterfalls only number 3 which is an adventurous trek, not suited to small children but well worth it with a great swim in the waterfall pool at the end. The road up to the villa is very steep so if you hire a car make sure it has some power if fully loaded as it will need it, we hired a Suzuki Katana and it would only make it up with the driver and 1 passenger, funny for me but not so much for the ones who had to walk.
This place is fantastic! Spacious rooms, all spotless clean. The outdoor shower for every room is nice, showering under the stars. The staff is great! They are very helpfull, and cooking is very good! From the big pool in front of the house you have a magnificent view over the sea!!
Villa Bekul is a 5-bedroom luxury villa against a hill near Lovina. It has an awesome 15m (or is it 20m!) pool and an amazing view that stretches all the way to the ocean. The garden is a haven of serenity, nicely landscaped and well maintained. The two ladies who look after the house can cook you a delicious breakfast and in fact any meal that you like, they are so kind and caring yet very respectful of your privacy.
We spent 5 nights here and could have stayed much longer! You can spend the day simply relaxing or go out (call driver Bob! he is fantastic) to visit any of the water falls nearby, one is at a short stroll away. We went to see the dolphins and were happy that we followed Bob's advice: it was only us and two other boats instead of the masses that all go out at the same time.
If you are planning to visit Bali and want to have that island feeling, go to the unpretentious northern end and stay in Villa Bekul!
NB there is a Nespresso machine, just be sure to bring your own cups!

We arrived at the villa on a Sunday well after 5 pm and were met by the staff who greeted us warmly, we stayed for 10 nights and the staff were there every day, even though they were suppose to have a day off they were very helpful and done some great meals.
The villa is big with 5 bedrooms and is very nice, the only problem is that the top bedroom which is rated as the master bedroom gets very hot and does not cool down, the air conditioner is not big enough to do anything in this room, it does have a fan but as the bed has a canopy over the bed it stops the flow of air over you and all you get is a slight draft, the other bedrooms were nice and cool.
It has great views and a fantastic swimming pool, but is a bit hard to have a walk around the area as it is on the top of a hill and is very steep, that steep that some restaurants couldn't pick us up. The villa has information about free transfers to some restaurants we used one and got charged $27 taxi fee so if using them check first. The spice club was good free transfers and a discount. We used the villa car pick up (Bob Bali) and drop off so we had no troubles finding the villa, we also used Bob Bali for tours and he was the best.
