(email hidden) or cocktail at sunset and know that you are as close to Heaven here at VILLA PURI PURNAMA BALI as possible!!! All of the wonderful, nearby attractions are listed on our website...
Our website is: (website hidden)
(Additional notes: *Our Wi-Fi is available in the livingroom/diningroom, by the pool, in the Upstairs Bale and in some of the bedrooms.)

FOOD DELIGHTS: Sample the fantastic, fresh fish, straight off the local fishing boats and the local lobster caught on the reef near our villa. You just can't get seafood any fresher or more delicious anywhere. Also the prawn farm is close by should you want to order fresh prawns. Order in a Babi Guling, the most famous dish in Bali consisting of spit-roasted suckling pig!!

OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD; Because we are located in a traditional, Balinese seaside village you can experience the "real Bali" during your stay with us. Take an early morning walk around the village and see the "Duck Man" with his cute troop of ducks and ducklings, which he is leading to graze in the rice paddies! Watch the local fishermen in their colourful outriggers, push out into the sea and return later with their catch! Follow the Balinese ladies as they walk along the beach collecting volcanic stones for decorating pots and paving stones.
Visit the two temples in our Village and watch the ceremonies and daily activities there. Have a chat with the local village residents and watch the beautiful children playing....just wonderful! Walk across the main road and visit the world-class Bali Safari and Marine Park (a lovely day out for the entire family).
LOCAL ATTRACTIONS, NIGHT LIFE and DINING options within TWO Minutes........The famous fishing village of Pantai Lebih with many seafood "warungs" is two minutes away. The very popular, new Beach Club/Bar/Restaurant KOMUNE is situated right on the famous Keramas Surf Beach only two mintues from here (great food and fantastic for sunset cocktails). Dine with the Lions in the beautiful, Tsavo Restaurant across the highway in the Safari Park. Take an 8-minute car ride up to the town of Gianyar and sample all the wonderful, local Street Food (on the Street and in the Market) from 4pm onwards every day.
TRANSPORT; We have two cars and two drivers who are at your disposal for all of your shopping, adventure and sightseeing requirements. We can also rent a car for YOU to drive at a very inexpensive rate. Motorcycles can be ordered for you in advance of your stay and, Taxis are available at 25 minutes' notice.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR STAY WITH US; Firstly of all you will luxuriate in the beauty of this part of Bali. Enjoy the wonderful food, relax with a massage or sipping a sunset cocktail while taking in the panorama of the sea, coastline, islands and the majestic volcano of Gunung Agung. Our friendly, Balinese staff will service your room and cook delicious local cuisine (if you choose to "eat in" at the villa). Rest, recuperate and enjoy all that we have to offer our guests!

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire villa. There is a very large upstairs Bale which is lovely for massages, get-togethers, sunset drinks, reading a book, meals (for special occasions) and relaxing. There is also a poolside bale for relaxing, reading a book or taking a nap (or a special dinner by the pool). The large living/dining room is open to all guests to use whenever they wish.

Interaction with Guests

I am on site most of the time. I am available if and when the guests need me. I do not intrude but find time to interact with the guests on a daily basis. Each guest is different. Some like to interact with me and the staff and others prefer to have their time to themselves and I respect that. We have great staff who prepare meals, clean rooms, do the driving etc. I am here to assist the guests with their tour requirements, daily requirements at the villa and anything else they may need.

The Neighborhood

We love being located in a beachside, typical Balinese village. It is so lovely to walk around the village, visit the temples, see the children playing, watch the ducks being herded along the laneways from one rice paddy to another. The views from here are nothing short of amazing, across the sea to the islands and to the North, the huge volcano, Gunung Agung, which is extraordinary. Early morning walks along the beach to watch the fishermen take our their colourful boats and to watch the local ladies collect the special volcanic stones for decorating pots and garden paving stones. We love watching the many ceremonies at the beautiful local temple - so colourful!! Also, from here is it a short walk to the nearby fishing village of Pantai Lebih where there are many seafood eateries (cheap and delicious). Then, in the other direction the very popular Komune, Beach Club Bar and Restaurant is a 15-minute walk along the beach (or 2 minutes by car/motorbike).

Getting around

We have a two cars and two drivers at the disposal of our guests at an additional cost. We can also organise motorbike and self-drive car rentals for our guests. We have parking at the side of our villa for our guests' vehicles.

  • We were seeking an experience far from the Kuta Bali scene and this delivered. Relaxing, friendly people, spacious accommodations, crashing waves, local farms right behind where the ducks get driven past to the rice paddies morning and night. Fishing village just to the north. Great retreat - many thanks!

    Response from Paula:

    Dear Craig thank you for the very constructive feedback. We will get the electrician on to those electrical items immediately. Regarding more information regarding the surrounding area I will definitely take that on board also. I did think that Dewa had offered to take you all to the Bali Safari and Marine Park. Normally, we always do that. Once again, thank you for staying with us.

  • Bali is an Island of temples, gods, holy places, art, artisans, artistic flair, succulent fruit, towering surf, and a "hostess with the mostest" - Paula Mckenzie-Mun'in! We were not quite sure about what to expect - but a cocktail party shortly after we arrived set the mood for a elegant, enjoyable, and unforgettable experience.

    Villa Puri Purnama is presided over by Paula Mckenzie Mun'in, a witty, charming, out-going hostess and her charming husband, Isa. We felt as though we we'd purchased a beachfront villa replete with a host and a winsome staff who provided outstanding service and delicious food - so much so that we could not find a good reason to eat out!

    Ah, What a heady mix! Villa Puri Purnama is sumptuous in its architecture, its furnishings, its manicured grounds, and volcanic beaches that separate the roaring surf from a limpid pool ringed by manicured grounds, statuesque Gods, and covered by an ambiance of decadent luxury. We can think of no better place to estivate! Our best recommendation for Villa Puri Purnama: We can't wait to get back!

    Response from Paula:

    We certainly really enjoyed having Felicity and her partner Ted staying with us (aka 'Ben'). What a delightful, interesting, fun and happy couple. We certainly shared some interesting conversations over a few glasses of local wine. I can highly recommend this terrific couple to any other accommodation provider and I will confirm that it was a sad morning when they left Villa Puri Purnama. No doubt, we will see them both back again soon.

  • Bali Beachfront Villa Puri Purnama was our last place in Bali. We were very sad when the time came for us to go back Poland.

    Because place was just amazing.

    Firstly, location - so close to the sea - really great view on the volcanic beach, the pool and the nice garden at once. Our favourite place were on the terrace when we could sit on comfortable sofas and just watch the sea. Or even better - eat really delicious dinner and watch the sea. Or even more better - eat really delicious dinner and watch the full moon reflecting in the sea...

    And those dinners... I need to admit that eating is the most important thing for me. My husband is not very pleased because of this fact, but this is tough reality :]. I've realized that the best thing I like in travelling is trying local cuisine.
    And the food in the Villa was the best I had in Bali - spicy (but not too spicy) and aromatic. We could choose from many different meals and also meat kinds (which, as we discovered, is not so common in Bali).

    Paula was really nice person. She cared a lot about us. She made her best so we could have the best stay at her place.

    I also loved Paula's dogs. Personally I loved to play with them with their coconut toy, but it was also really cool to just observe how awesome they look when they run along the beach.

    Response from Paula:

    Anna and her husband were on their honeymoon. Their lovely friendly natures and smiles were a pleasure to experience and they enjoyed everything about their stay at Villa Puri Purnama. Our cooks were very happy to hear that Anna said the food at our villa was the best she had eaten in Bali! We only wish that Anna and her husband could have stayed with us longer and we hope to see them back at our villa again in the not-too-distant future. Thank you for staying with us, we loved having you here and thank you for your beautiful review.

  • The Villa was everything promised and sweeter. It was the perfect antidote to the previous four days at an upscale but sterile resort in Nusa Dua. If I came to Bali again, I would head straight for Paula's! Paula met us on arrival and struck a great balance between being a charming hostess and giving us privacy and space. The first night she arranged a great dinner for us at the Villa. The second day, we walked up the beach to a wonderful fishing village and ate fish fresh of the boat. The infinity pool overlooked the ocean, our rooms were spacious and the Villa is set in a small village of about 200 folks with NO souvenir shops. Hooray!

    Response from Paula:

    One of the joys of operating a B&B/Villa on the beach in Bali is the fact that we meet so many lovely people from all over the world. We really enjoy looking after them and making sure that their Bali vacation is a really special time and that they see so many more things and enjoy many experiences that a lot of tourists to this beautiful island do not experience (the real Bali!). I have to say that that Suzanne was a complete pleasure to look after and we most certainly hope to see her again, soon, at Villa Puri Purnama. Warmest regards from all of the 'crew' in Cucukan/Villa Puri Purnama.

    Response from Paula:

    Dear Lili/Linda. You and Marc were the perfect guests! So friendly, kind and happy all the time. The teacher who was here, who spoke French (Chevelle) really missed you both when you left too! Thank you so much for your lovely review. Safe travels and come back again soon. Paulaxxx

  • Paula was a fantastic host! She was extremely accommodating with our arrival and late departure. Communication was top notch in terms of coordinating a driver, yoga and massages. Everything went smoothly. All of the logistical issues were taken care of well in advance so we didn't have to worry about anything. The villa, pool and beach were ideal for us. Everything was clean and tidy. Meals were fantastic and the staff she employs were all gracious and kind. The dogs were also happy to share the space with us! I hope to be able to return one day soon!!!

    May 2014
    Response from Paula:

    What a pleasure it was for us to have RC and her friend staying with us. The way RC and her friend interacted with our staff and with me was always respectful, friendly and positive and with a big smile! We all certainly look forward to the day that RC and her friend return to Bali and stay with us again. Thank you for the lovely review RC. Warmest regards from all of us at Villa Puri Purnama in Bali.

  • We had great time at Villa Puri Purnama. Paula and the staffs were very welcoming. I held my beloved husband's 50th bday party here. What a perfect location. Tks Paula for your hospitality. All the best and hope to see you again when we are in a Bali xx

    Response from Paula:

    It was a complete pleasure having Rini and her lovely family staying here at Villa Puri Purnama. We are very happy that the birthday celebration was a success. We definitely look forward to having Rini back here again in the near future. Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us!

  • Staying at the Bali Beachfront Villa Puri Purnama was like staying with a family friend who just happens to own a spectacular villa right on a gorgeous beach with amazing ocean and mountain views, beautiful rooms, and a lovely swimming pool. Paula was available but not invasive, which was great for me as a single woman traveling alone. I happened to be staying there during Nypei, during which all of Bali shuts down for 24 hours, so there was no staff available to cook. Paula made sure there was plenty of food in the house, and she encouraged me to simply help myself when I was hungry, and then she didn't charge me for any of it. The next day, she offered me a ride to Sanur on her way to town, and then she helped me arrange my travel to Yogyakarta. The first night I arrived, she even invited me up for a glass of wine when I was the only guest there, and we had a lovely conversation well into the evening. Truly, she is a master hostess, and if you are interested in staying somewhere that is beautiful, quiet, and a bit remote though not at all isolated (it's easily accessible by car but there's not much within walking distance except endless black-sand beach and lots of locals going on about their real lives), I highly recommend that you treat yourself to this exquisite stay.

    Response from Paula:

    Thank you Soha for the beautiful review. We really enjoyed looking after you very much. I am happy you enjoyed our quiet evening up in the bale, having a glass of wine and a very interesting chat and it was lovely having you share Nyepi with us and our friends. The peacefulness and beauty of this area are very special and it is lovely that you also find this place quite unique and magical. Happy and safe travels Soha. Please come back and visit us soon!!

  • My friends and I stayed at Villa Puri Purnama not long ago in March. Before we arrived , I communicated with Paula via email and she replied my emails and all my questions and inquiry in a very fast speedy.Upon our arrival at night, they have waited us at their front door and Paula welcomed us with a smile and open hands. Together we have 9 persons and they took well care with us. Their villa is really spectacular with the stunning view at the beachfront, that's exactly that you can see via their website's photos. I felt regret I just booked for one night and I promised her I will be back with my hubby very soon. Booked this villa, if you want a relax and stress-free holidays. Thank you very much Paula and the team.

    Response from Paula:

    Dear Ying, it was also lovely for us to have you and your wonderful group of 8 friends stay with us. We most definitely look forward to seeing you and your hubby here to stay with us again soon.

  • It was an unforgetable vacation we had thanks to Paula and her team. The communication before the trip was excellent and also during our stay she made sure at any time we didn't lack anything. She even organized rental scooter for is and the driver who picked us at the airport.
    The place itself is amazing, true paradise, the villa is decorated beautifully, the pool is very nice and you have the beach in front.
    We regret we couldn't enjoy the place longer, and we will be back for sure!

    March 2014
    Response from Paula:

    Dear Julie, my regret is that I didn't return from Australia in time to meet you. I am so very happy that my staff and my husband did a great job looking after you. So pleased that you like the 'guest gifts' of the sarong and Balinese body scrub. Upon my return the staff told me how much they enjoyed looking after you and your family. I want to thank you for your lovely review and to offer you our special 'return guest' discount for your next stay with us. Warmest regards from all of us at Villa Puri Purnama. Paula
