About This Listing
The Surya Chandra Estate sleeps 9 persons in luxury in the most original and scenic area of Bali. Either villa can also be booked separately or both together. Our highly trained and much loved staff are there to make your stay with us memorable.
The Retreat Villas Surya and Chandra together share a huge 2000 square meter piece of paradise with a 20M and 13M swimming pool, large gathering rooms, staff house and two fully staffed and equipped kitchens - one alfresco and the other in the main Villa Surya building and last but not least a large Organic kitchen garden supplying many of the daily fresh vegetables and herbs for our guests.
Included in your price is greeting drink, complimentary coffee and tea in the rooms, full breakfast of your choice for all your party, free pickup and deliver to and from the airport in Denpasar or your next destination here on the island and all the Balinese peace and tranquility you may need.
The Retreat is ideal for large families or groups wishing to experience the beauty and serenity of Bali without the impersonal stress and hectic of hotel living. Our English speaking staff have many years of looking after Western guests and have retained that gentle Balinese character that makes visiting the island such a tranquil and enjoyable experience.
There is so much to do in and around The Retreat that we have had to produce several brochures for Activities - ranging from massages (reflexology to full-body) to day fishing trips with the local fishermen and many, many things in between. A second brochure covers the Balinese Tours and drivers that we have accredited to work with our guests and a description of the range of Island tours with pricing. Both of these brochures are unfortunately only available after you have booked and your email address is made accessible to us through Airbnb.
Should your group be smaller it is also possible to book each villa individually. For further info on the single villas go to:

Every guest MUST enjoy themselves.
We had an amazing holiday staying at the Surya Chandra Estate. We were picked up promptly from the airport (at 11pm) by Mark and our local driver Made and taken straight to the accommodation where there were fresh coconuts waiting for us. The pictures don't so the place justice.
The location was perfect, (you can go the entire holiday without seeing a Westerner if you want to!) and the sea breeze is a godsend. The food was fantastic (prepared in house by Ketut and the team) - make sure to try everything!
Mark and Peetra were very helpful and accommodating, with good local knowledge of the area.
If you are looking for things to do in the area, I would highly recommend climbing Mount Batur (Agung was closed during our visit) and taking the mid-length tour. This takes you to the top of the volcano before sunrise where you have a spectacular view of Mount Agung and Rinjani (which is on Lombok) as the sun rises. You are then taken on a walk around the caldera - which I think was even better than the sunrise, where you can see active steam vents from the volcano.
I would also recommend a trip up to Amed for some snorkeling. The water was perfectly flat and very warm, with some beautiful coral and plenty of interesting fish.
The staff at the villa were more than helpful and very willing to tell you about the local area or show you around (there are a couple of chocolate factories within walking distance).
All in all, we had a great holiday and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
John ummm been sitting here a while trying to think of something to say to your wonderful review and all I could come up with is "If it's that good we just have to raise the prices". We won't, but what else can you say, except thank you all and we wish you every success in your lives and please keep us in your loop. Cheers again from all the staff Ketut, Kadek, Alit, Made, Lemon and the cats (Mark and Petra too).

About the Host, John
My wife and I love to host and I welcome new guests in this beautiful part of the world. We think Bali is so special that we want to share all the best bits, those things you only know if you live somewhere for a while and really get to know it, with all the guests "that ask". If you want to discover Bali for yourself then we will happily stand back and let you get it on - that's wonderful to watch too, the new discovery that all visitors make for themselves - what a truly unique place in the world Bali is. Help or no help you will love it here we guarantee it!
