“Large luxury villa with awesome view in authentic northern Bali!” Villa Bekul is a 5-bedroom luxury villa against a hill near Lovina. It has an awesome 15m (or is it 20m!) pool and an amazing view that stretches all the way to the ocean. The garden is a haven of serenity, nicely landscaped and well maintained. The two ladies who look after the house can cook you a delicious breakfast and in fact any meal that you like, they are so kind and caring yet very respectful of your privacy. We spent 5 nights here and could have stayed much longer! You can spend the day simply relaxing or go out (call driver Bob! he is fantastic) to visit any of the water falls nearby, one is at a short stroll away. We went to see the dolphins and were happy that we followed Bob’s advice: it was only us and two other boats instead of the masses that all go out at the same time. If you are planning to visit Bali and want to have that island feeling, go to the unpretentious northern end and stay in Villa Bekul! NB there is a Nespresso machine, just be sure to bring your own cups!
