Stayed here for 7 nights and it was an amazing experience. The staff is amazing, the place is amazing, and the views are amazing!
First of all there are 7 staff members to take care of all your needs. Gusty is the manager, driver and guide- very friendly and very knowledge. Trust him when he tells you leave the plans to arrival as you will change your mind and want to do less travel and more of staying at the villa!
Dedoung is the best Butler we have ever met or have the pleasure to serve us. Got us everything we needed from coffee in the morning to setting up a fishing trip with 3 staff members to go along with me to fish off the rocks.
Wayan is the Top chef! Just tell him the main protein you would like and leave the rest of the menu to his imagination. We also tried the Balinese breakfast which is a better option than the American boring eggs and bacon breakfast.
If your getting massages then ask for the bed to be placed by the terrace adjacent to the Living room section where the breeze is perfect. A much better choice than being in the gym area. No we didn’t use the gym or the movie room.
Service at the villa is the best service my wife and I have received from all of our previous trips (we have been to 45 countries).
Pool is amazing, water gets unbearably hot to swim in after 2pm. Go swimming in the beach water in the afternoon with the perfect water temperature . Yes most of the time you are alone on the mile long beach except for the occasional fisherman in the afternoon.
Villa needs some upkeep as some doors don’t fully close and some tiles and grout have moved and cracked. However most of the time you are looking outside rather than inside!
We highly recommend Villa Bulung Daya. You will never want to leave. It is absolute paradise. Thibault and Gusti are great hosts and make sure your stay is perfect. It is the most relaxing and peaceful vacation we have ever had. We stayed 8 nights. On our arrival at the airport, Gusti the property manager met us exactly as directed. We made our way to the villa, passing through beautiful local villages on the way. We arrived at nightfall and entered the villa via the upper gate and walked down the black stone path to the reflection pool that rests between the two main villa buildings. The property is absolutely breathtaking! It is a magical place; the locals even say it is sacred. The villa consists of several buildings each with its own purpose which is in harmony with local traditions. The main suite was very well appointed and the bed comfortable. We met Dedung, the butler who made our stay absolutely wonderful. Every day he took great care of us, providing meals, drinks and snacks throughout the day and advising on activities for the next day. Dedung makes sure every need is taken care of. Wayan, the chef, surprised us every night with a delicious Balinese meal. The food was excellent throughout our entire stay. The pool was fantastic and Agus and Made ensured it was always clean and enjoyable. The black sand beach was just steps away from the Villa and we would go down in the afternoon and mingle with the local Balinese villagers who were always friendly and inviting. The rice fields are beautiful. Gusti always made our day trips to see local sites entertaining and enjoyable. The villa has a full time security staff member, Nyoman, which made us feel very secure and safe. You have complete privacy. It is clean and well taken care of. We would like to thank Thibault, Gusti and his staff for ensuring we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. They are all amazing. Thank you for making my wife’s birthday special and memorable. We would recommend Thibault’s Bulung Daya villa to anyone who wants to enjoy real Bali. We would love to visit and stay again!
The place is magical. But it is not for everybody, but for people who like to rest in peace, surrended by rice fields, empty beach with volcanic black sand and by sound of the ocean.
We booked half-board option, so we had breakfast and 1 more meal included. We spent our days being driven to different temples, markets and places, only to eat during evening dishes picked form the menu.
The service at villa is just amazing, staff is so nice and helpful. Both "houses" are fully equipped ith everything one can need, there is also gym and cinema room in the third house. The pool is just amazing, 33 meters only for villa guests.
Altogether it was great stay and I highly recommend it!
Bulung Daya is a rare gem in today's world--far from crowds and noise and surrounded by verdant rice fields and vast ocean. To stay at Bulung Daya is to be in complete peace, comfort and fulfillment. The accommodations are beautifully decorated and well appointed, the pool is the best you will ever experience at a vacation rental, the beach is private and easily accessible, the area is untouched and picturesque, locals are kind and welcoming and the food is fresh, carefully prepared and delicious. What made our stay truly unforgettable was the remarkable staff--all exceptionally trained, deeply caring, patient, flexible and kind. We have fond memories of our time at Bulung Daya and are already thinking about returning.
Magnificent place, beautiful surroundings, wonderful staff and great food! About 2 hours away from Denpasar but definitely worth the drive. Because of the strong currents and rocks you cannot swim in the ocean, the 33m pool made up for it. Waking up with stunning views!
The beach is easy accessible, the black sand shines like little diamonds.
We will certainly come back!
