What an unforgettable stay With Jim and Diana!
We have enjoyed it so much and we will recommend Banana Villa Retreat to everyone.
Lots of love, Eric and Marleen
Jim and Diana has a dream and Banana Villa is their dream realised. Set on an exquisite hilltop are two beautiful villas with an amazing view of the each and an incredible infinity pool. The gardens are also truly spectacular with an abundance of beautiful trees and plants.
Each villa has a full kitchen, lovely comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom and an outdoor space and view to die for. You can watch spectacular sunsets from anywhere on the property.
However, what truly makes this place special is Diana and Jim. They make you feel part of the family. Truly generous natured, kind and wonderful people that I can't speak highly enough of. Both my wife and I were sad to go but sure as eggs are eggs, we will be back.
Oh and breakfast is epic.
Do yourself a favour. If you are near Lovina and they have availability, book here. It's a no brainier.
Diana & Jim are the loveliest hosts you can imagine! Warm-hearted and always open to help making your stay unforgettable. The two apartments in the separate villa are beautifully integrated in the landscape and convince with their naturally ventilated architecture. You even have a fully equipped kitchen in case you like to cook something for your own like we enjoyed. The pool is just perfect as well. Sublime breakfast.
We can 100% recommend this place as it's really special. Only two rooms are available and Jim & Diana and all the staff are taking care of you as if you are their family. :)
Tip: Coming from the south of Bali use the big road to Singaradja and join the costal-road to Lovina from there. In Lovina take the road up the mountain to the villa. (Do not try to get to the house directly via the small roads from the mountains as your navigation may tell you - very troublesome...)
My utmost recommendations!
Outstanding view, pool, hosts, gardens, breakfasts, to sum it up..... outstanding ! ''This program asks me to write more, there is nothing more that I can say, for me it was paradise.
Very comfortable. Sunrises and sunsets.
I want to come back
The atmosphere is filled with air, singing birds, flowers and palm trees. Rest for the lush
