Here are some comments from our recent guests.......
Hi Libby, just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at the villas. All our party were very impressed with the villas, especially the villa tiga and dua. The layout of these villas is great, and the staff were exceptional. The food for the party was excellent, as was all the preparations done by your staff, we had a fantastic night. One of your drivers told us about your other villas near Tanalot, and offered to show us. We were all very impressed, and will tell others about them at home. The driver is a very good ambassador for your business. Kartika was also lovely and very good at her job. We would certainly book your villas again. Thanks for being very helpful as it is difficult co-ordinating a large group, and you didn't mind all the changes.

I wanted to formally thank you and everyone involved in our stay at the Villas and for your excellent organisation of the blessing ceremony for Ian and Alexandra. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The villas are all beautiful and comfortable and peaceful and we would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. We all really loved the ceremony with its tradition and symbolism and the elaborate decoration of the venue along with the Gamelan and beautiful dancers made it a day we will all remember forever.
Please pass on our special thanks to Pemangku Ratu Kakyang and his assistants for his blessing, and to Sartria and Kartika for their organisation. Please also thank everybody involved for their hard work and assistance.
We look forward to visiting again in the near future, it was great fun.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at Teman Desa Villas (Villa Satu). Your villas are just beautiful - we felt so spoilt staying there, just paradise! Wayan and Aria were amazing also. The food and service was fantastic - the best duck i have ever had!! I did feel a little bad when I saw Wayan bring the full duck in from the market though, ha ha, the taste made up for it! They were both fantastic with our kids, so much so that whenever we went out all the boys kept asking about was Wayan and Aria and if they coudl go back to the villa and play!! So thank you again, we had a amazing trip and will definitely be recommending your villas to our friends.

So please pass on our thanks to them all, and thank you for helping us with the organisation which with the number in our group wasn’t always straightforward!!
Jim & Heather Rudkin & Family -NSW Australia. September 2011
Staying at Villa Empat was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and we have had numerous over many years. The biggest decision was choosing what to eat each day!
John & Michael - NSW, Australia. August 2011
I am writing to you to say that our time at Villa Tiga was amazing. The people who worked in our Villa were so friendly and nice from Elu, Kalek, our driver Putu to the guy who cleaned the pool could not have been friendlier or kinder to strangers. The meals that were prepaired by Elu and Kalek were so delicious that it has inspired Nicole and me to hunt down an authentic Balinese Cook Book so that we can have a Balinese night once a month. Also the care they took of us during our stay was beyond compare. We were also blown away by the fact that they even did our laundry for us,.....our driver Putu was a fountain of information for us whenever we went out, we bombarded him with questions and he told us so much about life in Bali and the culture of Bali that we now know a lot more than we did. It has inspired all of us to want to come back again and again. So on behalf of my Daughter Nicole her husband Chris and daughters Violet and Betsy and myself and my husband Kevin I would like to say Thank you, thank you, thank you all for making our stay in your Country the best holiday we have had.

Susan Steer - Melbourne, Australia. September 2010.
We wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had in Bali. The villa was beautiful, quiet and peaceful. The staff were outstanding! Komang and Dewa looked after us with delicious meals and cups of tea at hand. I didn’t have to lift a finger. Putu our driver was fabulous! He directed us to good shopping and eating areas, he organised bookings for us and he was always friendly, polite and helpful. Hana runs the villas smoothly and efficiently, making sure everything was as it should be. We congratulate you and all of the staff at Teman Desa villas for achieving such high standards in customer service. We will definitely book the villa again the next time that we come to Bali.
Susan, Mick, Tom and Courtney - Gingin Western Australia. July 2010.
Just a quick thank you to say how much we enjoyed our recent stay at Villa Satu. It is so beautifully designed and so relaxing with beautiful surrounds as well. Many thanks to Hana for making us so welcome....our driver Putu was terrific and what can we say about Agung and Wayan, our extended family for our stay, except that we miss their lovely smiles, their conversation and their omelettes and chicken wontons!!! Once again our heartfelt thanks for everything! We loved it all!

'I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Tiga. The villa is beautiful and very well maintained. The staff are helpful, gracious and very professional. Our stay was wonderful, it exceeded our expectations. Thank You.'
Melinda Davidson - Portland USA. March 2010.
I want to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful stay at Villa Tiga. Your team gave phenomenal customer service (the best my family has ever experienced) and went above and beyond for us. My whole family left Bali in awe with how kind and gracious everyone was.
Liz Taylor - USA. Febuary 2010.
Villa Satu is a first class accommodation option with great layout and a quiet rural location, but the quality of the staff is the thing that really provided us with a great family holiday. Our warmest thanks go to the house team that made our stay so enjoyable. Really great food and attention to detail provided us the opportunity to relax knowing we were in good hands. Agung, Made and Dewa provided an excellent service and were always happy to play with our kids when not hard at work keeping the place ship shape. Our driver, Wayan was also fantastic, providing a careful driving experience and meeting our every transportation need with aplomb. I'd appreciate if you could pass on best wishes to all of your staff that made our stay very enjoyable. Also best wishes to the manager, Andi. Once again thank you for providing a fantastic Bali experience, we look forward to further stays in the future and have warmly recommended Villa Satu to our friends.
Mark - Perth Australia. September 2009
'I would like to thank you for your very professional manner in which you conducted the booking of Teman Desa.We had an absolutely wonderful time staying in the villas. From the time we arrived finding Dewi our driver with a big smile, to our wonderful staff waiting at our villa to welcome us. All my family was blown away as we walked into our villa. They couldn’t believe it was all for us. Beautiful rooms and an outdoor bathroom to die for. We had the pleasure of staying in two of the four villas in Teman Desa (Villa Tiga and Empat) staying for two and a half weeks. Both lovely, and staff fantastic. I would however like to give a special thank you to my two cooks, Wayan and Nyoman the food they prepared for us was amazing and plentiful.
Nothing was too much to ask for. Great deli’s close by which cater for everything you could ask for. The days we stayed in at the Villa breakfast lunch and dinner were provided for at a very cheap cost. For 5 adults cost around $60 a day. Fantastic value. Nothing is too much hassle in Bali and that is exactly what our holiday was hassle free. Once again thank you all at Teman Desa for making our stay with you very enjoyable, we will be back very soon!!!!!!!
Debra - Sydney Australia. June 2009.
“Thank you to all the staff at the Villa Empat who made our first time visit to Bali so remarkable. The Villa is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly located in Canggu - close enough to the sites but nestled away on a rice paddy in a quaint village at the same time. We only wish we had more time.”
Kathleen - Hong Kong. July 2009.
'Thought I would let you know just how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Empat over the Easter Break. The rooms and bathrooms are lovely and the pool and living areas divine. The staff were unobtrusive but seemed to be there every time we needed something. The meals were fresh and tasty and were always served to restaurant standards. From Dewi (our driver and first contact with anybody from the villas) who greeted us in a professional and friendly way to Andi (the Villa manager) who attended to our every wish with a smile, the staff were all fantastic and I cannot sing their praises highly enough. Your drivers are very safe and friendly and we will never forget that big beautiful smile of Kadek every time he saw us. The rooms and bathrooms were immaculate every day and the shared areas including the gardens and pool were also kept very clean and tidy. We felt as thought we were in our own private heaven on earth where all your needs were “magically” attended to'.
Elvie - Adelaide, Australia. April 2009.
'We stayed in the 2 bedroomed Villa Satu in Teman Desa Villas for a week. We had the most relaxing break in many years in peaceful surroundings, with staff to look after us to prepare meals and drinks. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxed atmosphere. The staff were always happy to see to our needs & magically disappeared into the shadows when they weren't required. We used the villa car and driver and found that to be a very stress free way to travel around both in the day time and in the evening. The villa is exceptionally well designed in terms of decoration and style and we found that we spent many days just laying on the daybed listening to CD's with occasional dips in the pool, with drinks being served on demand. The layout is perfect with the bedrooms on one side overlooking the pool towards the outdoor living room. The rice fields on adjacent sides add to the feeling of remoteness although its only a few minutes drive from Echo beach and the city is only 30 mins away. All in all we really had a chilled out experience at the Villa and have recommended it to friends.
