Thank you for a
fabulous time at Villa Tenang certainly a tropical paradise.
What a wonderful
setting, with the stunning back drop of mountains, river,sea and
paddy fields an ideal place to relax and chill.
enjoyed the stroll down to the deserted beach to collect shells,
rock hop or just splash around in the surf and also the trip to
Lavinia to watch the dolphins well worth the early start.
Dewa was fantastic
at driving us around the Island sight seeing and generally
taking very good care of us.
definitely knows what he is doing! the food was so delicious we
never felt the need to eat out anywhere else.
Thanks once again we
will be singing your praises to all our friends.
With love Annie

Christmas and a very happy and busy 2009.
A big thank's to you all for our wonderful stay
at Vila Tenang. It was one of the most relaxing holidays ever, which was just
what we were looking for. The Vila was fantastic, with everything you could
ever need. Set in such an idyllic spot, it was great to be able to take a walk
to the beach, down to the river or just admire the views from the pool and
decking area. Not to mention the delicious food served daily.
Dewa was a great guide on our days out, and we
felt privileged to learn about the Balinese history and culture from a local.
Two weeks just wasn’t long enough!
I do hope we can make it back soon. Thank you
once again for making us feel so welcome and making our holiday one to remember.

all had a wonderful stay in Bali. After many a full day of sightseeing with Dewa
it was great to return to Villa Tenang in the tranquil setting among the
tropical plants and of course the pool. The meals were, without question, cooked
to perfection - the menu was extensive.
was a privilege to meet yourselves and your staff. When we talk about Bali we
not only think of shopping and sightseeing but we think of Dewa and Seca who
played a big part in making our visit a memorable one.
will be back.

truly had a great time and have some fine memories to look back on. You've got a
wonderful spot and you've obviously put a lot of care into the design and
craftsmanship of the place.
Dewa, you and your staff made us feel very
comfortable right from the start to our final goodbyes. I will never forget waking up after
arriving in the dark to see the surprising view from your westernmost bedroom
and hearing our kids already up and in the pool. It was the perfect place to
gather with our family and friends.
traveling on to Ubud, Lovina and finally Nusu Dua which were all great in their
own ways, I can say that your place was the top of my Bali favorites list. The
combination of tasteful accommodations, beautiful surroundings, friendly local
villagers and a distinct feeling that we were peacefully in our own part of
"real Bali" made for a very storybook visit.
Hopefully we'll make it back some day and we'll be sure to start our trip the
very same way, only for a longer stay. We've been advertising your place to our
best friends who have been to Bali before and are planning to get over there
while Tim is still stationed in Jakarta.
Happy New Year
We’re now safely home from our visit at Bali and your
Vila Tenang. We’ve had the best holiday ever.
Dewa and the staff have been wonderful
to us and we had been very well cared for.
The Vila and surroundings was much more then expected
and we came to love the place and learned a lot about the village and the people.
At New Years Eve, Dewa
and the staff arranged a garden party for us and even hired a gamelan band and
dancers from the village. We helped making Decorations from coconut leaves and
had a really wonderful day.
Once again, A Happy New Year
We had a great time in Bali. Dewa was wonderful and
we can't say enough about the food.
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa.
We were getting our pictures

We just got home on Sunday with many wonderful memories.
Hope everything is going well for you both. Hope to keep in touch.

We did have a superb time in Bali, it is such a lovely
country with friendly people and exotic landscapes.
Our time in the villa was wonderful - the staff that
looked after the villa and pool were happy, friendly and courteous.
the villa itself and thought the standard of workmanship throughout wonderful.
Dewa, your manager, was brilliant, making sure our needs
were met and driving us to all the sites we wanted and along with his knowledge
we discovered all about the culture and customs of Bali.
