Villa #7 – Tiffany
We have just returned from our honeymoon staying at these fabulous villas. Was over whelmed when entering the villa to see that the staff had laid rose petals everywhere it was beautiful. The staff are awesome, so friendly
And accommodating. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Even had our washing done and ironed.
Will definitely recommend these villas to friends and family. Thank you for a memorable stay
Villa #2, August 2022 – Eunice
My friends and I (5 of us) stayed at Villa Besar – Villa 2. The place was exactly as the photos. The staff on site were really helpful and accommodating with the Villa phone. The guide book was great and the staff helped to get bikes, laundry, breakfast, ice and help with local food delivery. It was value for money, secured and easy to find. A recommended stay!
Villa #8, August 2022 – Debbie
We had such a memorable stay in villa 8 of Villa Besar. The staff and security were so friendly and always happy to help. We loved that our accommodation included getting breakfast and our laundry done each day… Each bedroom in the villa has its own large ensuite which was great for all of us as we were with 4 other families. The pool was fantastic and was used frequently. Everything is not too far away. The taco joint across the road was amazing and they made the food and best margaritas. The villa is only a 10min gojek bike ride from the heart of Canggu and Seminyak so super easy to get around. We had to opt for bikes over cars sometimes to get around because it was do busy on some days and cars cant go down all the same roads as bikes. I never thought I would ever get on the back of a motorbike/scooter but i felt safe in and around Canggu & Seminyak… Highly recommend Villa 8 of Villa Besar. We look forward to coming back and exploring more of this side of the island.
Villa #8, September 2022 – Youssef
Amazing hosts! Cannot recommend enough, looked after me and my group really well and would return in a heartbeat! Perfect for a large group and very accommodating!
Villa #7, September 2022 – Karin
The Villa Besar (No.7) is a beautiful place with lovely people. The pictures of the villa are accurate. We stayed there for 8 Nights this September. The Villa is good to relax and have a few quiet days… There are a few restaurants and café’s along the road and the Buda restaurant belongs to Villa Besar which serves good breakfast. Perfect place if you like to spend a few quiet days close to everything and don’t mind to go around with a scooter 🛵.
Villa #8, October 2022 – Rebecca
Our stay at Villa Besar was amazing. We were staying with 4 families with children and there was plenty of space for all of us to have the perfect shared holiday.
The rooms and spaces were all as advertised. The pool and green space was great and shared facilities were fantastic and provided ample space for us to relax.
Each bedroom had its own bathroom. The villa was clean and well kept. Breakfast was provided every morning and daily washing and cleaning, free of cost.
The best part of the stay was the staff! They went out of their way to make our stay hassle free- organising transport, taxis, meals, massages, clean towels, bookings for dinners & activities. They were friendly, kind, and went out of their way to make our stay easy.
Would highly recommend a stay, especially for a group looking to enjoy a holiday together in Bali.
Villa #8, November 2022 – Shu Qi
We loved the free laundry services & daily breakfast!! Definitely saved us a lot of trouble washing our clothes 🙂 Service was impeccable and the team cleaned up our villa every morning without fail.
Villa #12, December 2022 – Tui
We booked Villa #12. From the time of our booking Jenny was so helpful with my 101 questions as It was the first time we were staying in the Umala’s area. We always stay in other areas. Upon arrival, our Villa was breathtaking! Exactly like the photo’s and more. We were greeted by our driver Sunny who waited hours for us as we were delayed 3 hours, he was probably the most happiest Balinese we have ever met We used Sunny with all our tours, Beach Club days, he went over and beyond for us. We had 8 in our Group, so the 5 bed/5 bathroom was plenty space for everyone, the pool was cleaned every morning, onsite staff are the friendliest we have met so far. Breakfast is included at the front of the Villa Complex called Buddah Restaurant. Laundry also included! (Bonus for us Mums!) Most hot spots nearby, Taco Aquil across the road was our go at the end of the day, Beautiful local restaurant called Pho Hwitta a few doors down across the road is a must! Villa Besar 5 Star! We will be back!
…10 days we came home with our hearts full, memories added to our memory bank and a golden tan! Our teenage Sons and friends had the most amazing time. It helped with having the most relaxed, attentive and happy staff, you should be so proud of them.
Villa #4, December 2022 – Amanda
Unlike many other Airbnbs i’ve stayed in this was exactly what we expected – in a good way. The pool was awesome, the areas were as big if not bigger than we thought and the helpful staff at the front office helped us with anything we asked. It was a great time and the staff were all very helpful… I was in contact with Nanik most days who was very helpful. Everything we asked for was looked after and sorted out – even our arrival cocktails!! Very impressed with everything at Villa Besar
Villa #9 – Jacinta
This is my favourite place to stay in Bali, I would live here if I could.. As a single mum tavelling with a toddler I can’t recommend Villa Besar enough. I’ve stayed in ALOT of places here, from 5 star resorts to budget accommodation and everything in between- From Elephant Safari to Benoa & many places between. Villa Besar tops the list, an absolute pleasure to stay here. A lovely peaceful sanctuary which more than makes up for not being v close to beach. Sooooo spacious, great for my son who was over being couped up in hotel rooms, immaculately clean, delicious food & drinks right at your doorstep/room service, so convenient having your laundry and house keeping taken care of daily. Private pool, bath and super comfy huge bed. We ate at the restaurant but also Bali Buda is just down the road so we got takeout/delivery from there just to change it up. There were other families in the villas nearby who we met at breakfast in restaurant and everyone was v happy and friendly. The staff are also amazing. I stayed here with my 1.5 yr old son and they couldn’t help me enough, even looking after him while I ate my breakfast in peace one day when I really needed a break & then organising a massage in my villa complete with free babysitting. I felt so safe, supported and looked after. Honestly I can’t fault Villa Besar or anyone/anything about it. It’s away from the hub so you need transport but the driver there will take you anywhere (nothing is too much trouble) I already have and will continue to share this gem with everyone I know. Thank you so so much to the lovely owner Jenny & all at Villa Besar, you made Tobias’ and my Bali adventure absolutely wonderful & I am deeply grateful.

I just wanted to send you our sincerest gratitude for accommodating me and my whole family on our first trip to Bali. We stayed the 4th Dec – 13th Dec
We cannot thank you enough. Best experience staying at Villa Besar – VILLA#4.
The villa was amazing and really made us feel like our home away from home.
All the staff were so lovely especially Putu, Annie, Maddie, Gaday, Aya, Kupit and Asia.
Also our pool cleaner and the man who sweeps the garden – always smiling and and wishing us well for our day (sorry didn’t catch their name)
We will definitely be back! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Great space! Large kitchen with all the amenities. Pool is not deep, but nice to cool down in. The free laundry is a plus, and felt very secure. Staff were great and accommodating.
6 bedroom villa, June 2014 – Shelly
Ive been wanting to send this email ever since we got back a week ago, but iv been in a bit of denial that we’re actually home after spending the most incredible time in Bali at Villa Besar.
WOW!That was by far the best family holiday we have ever had. I spent months looking for accomodation to suit our large group and i dont know why VILLA BESAR didn’t show up in may earlier search, but i am so rapt i did find it. It Truly exceeded our expectations. The 6 bedroom villa was perfcet for our group and it was a bouns to have our sister and her family staying 2 doors down in the 2BM villa. Although we spent a few days shopping and looking around Bali, we were just as happy to stay and relax around the villa everyday. Everything was so spacious and immaculate. We especially loved the different living areas which meant we weren’t all living on top of each other for 8 days. Everything we needed was there, and if it wasn’t, the staff found it for us.
Nanik, Annie, Ketut Dira, Komang (Cupid), James and Nyoman and all the other staff at Villa Besar were absolutely amazing and for us, it was the key ingredient to our perfect holiday. The excellent service, quality of accomodation and value of villa besar has been rated #1 for us now. We were very spoilt and although we tried to help staff, they pleaded for us to sit back and relax. A special thanks to Made and Tiwi for looking after my sisters young ones. The staff did everything possible to ensure we were relaxed and enjoyed ourselves, and the heavenly massages! I actually suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and although the humidity was a huge shock to my body on arrival to Bali, the (almost) daily massages relived my aches and pain. Most of us had at lest 3 massages and Nia even convinced my husband to get a pedicure! ahahah.
We are really looking forward to our next trip back.
Again, i want to thank you so much for everything.
Regards Shelly Green

Just some feedback on your villas and the service…. JUST WOW!
Our first trip to Bali and it was just perfect and i think staying in the villas was the biggest plus!
Everything from being picked up to being dropped back was just brilliant!
Your staff at the villas were amazing and a credit to your business.
Thanks so much
We cant wait to come back
1 bedroom villa, October 2013 – Lili
I just come back from Bali and stayed in the One-bedroom at Villa Besar last week (13 Oct-18 Oct) and found that the Staff and Premises exceeded my expectations.
Great service from Airport pick up to drop off and everything in between with the breakfasts, cooked lunches when we had our feasts, security and more.
Special mention to Nanik, Dira, Annie and Mira who catered to my requests and desires, nothing was a problem. Having security there made it a safe place to stay for me as a single women on my own away from the group who were in the other Villas.
Thank you Villa Besar, I’m coming back!!!!
October 2013- Belinda
I was staying with my family in Villa 1 from 11/10/13 – 21/10/13 and wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your villas.
In addition, I wanted to extend my thanks once again to the lady that cooked and cleaned our villa every day – Marte (Julie) – not sure how to spell her name correctly. She was always smiling, attentive, courteous and willing to help in any way that she could from cooking our breakfast to cleaning our room, watching my boys or organising a hair dresser for the day of the wedding. She said good morning every day and goodbye when she finished her shift. My boys (2 and 4) warmed to her very quickly.
As a business owner myself, I know that it’s important that the staff you keep needs to be dedicated to their job as they are the face of your business. You can rest easy knowing that she is doing just that.
The security guards that sat outside our villa every night and the various staff members around the place were also very polite and courteous and always ready to help – opening the villa doors when we returned with sleeping children or assisting with the many late orders from the villas that we all occupied for Burger King or McDonalds.
I have no hesitation in recommending your villas to friends and family should they wish to travel to Bali in the future – or if I have the opportunity to come again.

Just wanted to send you a note about our recent stay at Villa Rumah Besar. We all had a truly wonderful time at the villa and the staff, led by Nanik were fabulous. Here are some specifics for you which I’m very happy for you to use in reviews:
The size and layout of the villa was perfect for a large group like ours. We had plenty of space to come together & socialise, as well as having the kid’s room and very large bedrooms that we could retreat to if we wanted some downtime.
I was delighted with the location of the villa- off the road – so that once inside the walls of the villa it was completely quiet & serene. Having the little shop & the cafes just at the end of the lane way made it very convenient for picking up extra drinks & snacks as well as ordering lunch & coffee from the Bumbak Cafe. Putu, the owner, was very gracious & happily brought our orders down to the villa for us which was just fantastic.
The drivers were fantastic & very helpful & patient, and the security guards were just great at night when we needed a hand ordering food to be delivered, etc.
The girls who came to the villa to do the massages. pedicures etc were really, really good & the prices were fantastic. I think we had them booked almost every day of our stay.
The meals that the staff prepared for us were always delicious, nothing was too much trouble, and there always heaps of food for everyone.
The daily laundry & cleaning by the staff was great and very efficient. The team were always around to help out, but never intrusive and seemed to almost magically get all the work done without us even realising it.
We have all agreed that we’ll be back both as a group and separately, so thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place and a great team to create perfect holidays.
Lara Morrow and Family
Hi Mike and Jenny
I would just like to say thank you for providing the perfect environment for a relaxing, and fun, family holiday.
Both the villa and the pool were of a standard above what we were expecting. We spent hours in the pool, and having the pool fence meant we weren’t worrying about the kids getting in without adult supervision. The resident geckos and fish provided a lot of entertainment.
Having a cooked breakfast was a great start to the day, and beautifully washed clothes was a treat – thanks Madi.
Nanick was very helpful and went out of her way to be of assistance, along with the other office staff.
We were a little worried about being out of the main areas, but were pleasantly surprised to find that arranging transport was very easy and inexpensive. We used the villa’s van for family excursions, and it was nice knowing the drivers, and the vans were very comfortable.
Two of our guests had not been to Bali before, and because of the affordable luxury, as well as the feeling of security, provided by you and your staff, they have gone home with lovely memories of a wonderful holiday.
Again, thank you
Lara Morrow and family
Villa #1, May 2022 – Craig
A fantastic villa, easy check-in process and excellent communication throughout the duration of our stay. All needs met. A comfortable, quiet and lovely villa for our stay.
Villa #8, July 2022 – Liam
Villa Besar was an absolute godsend for our large group. The place was immaculate! I can’t say enough how amazing the staff were; they were super friendly and went out of their way to accomodate our needs. The location is also terrific. The street has so many great eateries and is only a quick 10 minute scooter ride down the shortcut to Canggu Beach! We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to extend at one of the other villas on site! Thank you so much to the amazing team at Villa Besar for the world class hospitality you showed all of us ❤️

My family of 7 and I just spent a whole week here in Villa no.10 and absolutely loved every moment of being treated like royalty. The staff were outstanding in all aspects of their jobs and I have already recommended this Villa to most of my friends and family. Thank you soo much from the bottom of our hearts, you all made our holiday that much more unforgettable. From the cleaning of our villa, to the daily laundry, and just your beautiful presence we felt every day we saw you guys. To the drivers we just can’t thank you enough. To the staff at Happy Buddha, thank you for your guys beautiful service and hospitality you showed my family and I every day, the room service and to just going that extra mile and checking on us to see if we were happy with our meals. For the delicious spread and birthday cake that you made for our daughters birthday, Thank you soo very much for all the love you showed us, we miss you already and hope to see you all again in the near future. Honestly just cant thank you all enough. AAA+
Villa #7, August 2022 – Tiana & Mikayla
The hosts and reception/cleaning staff at Villa Besar went absolutely above and beyond for us throughout our entire stay. Everyone here was extremely welcoming and provided everything we could have hoped for. The place was exactly as advertised, located on a great street in Seminyak with many food and spa places within walking distance. The location was quiet, but also close enough to all the beach clubs, as well as shopping and eating in Canggu. This specific villa is very well suited for 2 guests, single or a couple, and in the future we are excited to book a bigger place for a larger group. I cannot recommend Villa Besar enough for any type of guest. Thank you again to all the staff for your accomodation and services!
Villa #7, October 2022 – Casey & Toby
Would just like to send a message to say thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa.
It made our first trip in Bali an amazing experience.
Beautiful staff and always so helpful.
Hopefully we can book again next year 🙏

Our first time staying here after being recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, laundry, breakfast, cleaning all inclusive. Will be coming back here again for sure! We stayed at 2 other places on this trip and none compared! Thanks for the great hospitality Besar! 🙏🏽
Villa #4, August – Anastasia
This was my second time staying at Villa Besar. The first time I stayed with my girlfriend in villa #7 a one bedroom villa for 5 days back in February / March. This time we stayed in villa 4 which is the largest of the 12 or 13 villas which has 6 huge rooms and a massive yard and two side by side pools (kids / full size) with 12 family members. Our family can’t stop raving about the venue. The staff are fantastic, they speak great English and nothing is too much trouble. They constantly have a smile on their faces, greet you each time they see you and just make you feel welcome and comfortable. We felt safe and secure staying in this part of seminyak. It may be a little further out then other places but that doesn’t mean you miss out. There are some great warungs and spas near by and getting into the main part of seminyak is just a short trip away. We all loved the room service provided by the restaurant at the front of the villa: Happy Buddha. Our favourite meal was the Happy Buddha beef burger. Yum yum yum!! My husband and sister in-law’s partner are burger snobs and they definitely rate their burgers as one of the best they’ve had in Bali and back in oz. It was simple but tasty as. We also got married in the villa we stayed in. Once this villa is set up it is just transformed and looks amazing. All in all we highly recommend these villas. In order to book you communicate with the Aussie owners and pay in aud to an AU bank account. Nice and simple. We highly recommend Villa Besar.
Villa #1, June 2022 – Ali
We had a fabulous time & loved the villa. All the staff were so lovely, friendly and attentive.
Nothing was too much. We will be back 100%. We were quite sad to leave.
Thank you once again for having us.
Please pass on my thanks and appreciation.
