“Much needed and fantastic holiday”Fantastic family holiday spent at this relaxing and accommodating villa. We spent 2 weeks in the villa with my in-laws and other family after their visit to Australia.
It is a great place to unwind knowing that everything you need is easily available. The staff are extremely friendly and happy to help out with anything you could want, from recommending restaurants in the local area to organizing taxis and drivers for day trips, they will even give you tips for your day out.
Canngu itself is a great area to stay, lots of nice cafes and bars, and beaches on your doorstep, while being only a short trip from Seminyak and Kuta, without the hustle and bustle.
If you want a quite day around the villa there are ample facilities with three independent double rooms with en suites, the pool is magical after a long day out in the heat, and perfect to laze next to while you wait for the masseuse to arrive.
I would highly recommend this villa, and will definitely go back!
“Superb villa, everything you need for a great holiday. Thanks”
Yet another wonderful holiday spent at this splendid villa. Staff are the same happy helpful friendly and having been there a long time they treat you like family.
We stayed at the villa two weeks, and we made every day count. The staff arranged taxis and hire cars with driver for the day.. Sight seeing made so easy with their island knowledge we saw beautiful exotic scenery, temples, markets, beaches and shops.. Returning back to the comfort of the villa..
The Chef (when pre booked ) is superb with excellent native cooking..
The Villa still retains excellent facilities and the upkeep is very credible to the owners.
Highly recommended 5*

My Husband myself and 9 year old twins have just returned from a wonderful five night stay and are so sorry to leave. Everything was great from booking and dealing with the owner, getting picked up at the airport the Lovely welcome we received from the Girls. The villa far exceeded our expectations. Bali is our second home we spend a lot of time there and have stayed in many different Villas but this beats them all. Well done and thanks so much
This is a fantastic villa, peaceful and tranquil in a beautiful setting, with helpful and friendly staff. The swimming pool is beautiful and the upstairs dinning area was lots of fun, along with the pool table. I really like the area as well, enjoying nights out at Deus and sunset at old man's, with great cafes nearby for breakfast and lunch. The villa is close enough to the beach to enjoy dinner at the beach house, and of course great surfing nearby at Echo beach. This is definitely the cool area to be, compared to the built up tourist areas you still see the typical Bali landscape which I love so much. I would definitely recommend staying at Villa Puri Temple for anyone, comfortable, great for entertaining, easy for everything, and spacious and with a great option of having your own driver.

“Que du bonheur”
Tout est conforme à ce qui est présenté; confort, propreté,tranquilité (loin du bruit et des embouteillages de Seminiak) ,fonctionnalité, service (trois personnes + le chauffeur tous très sympathiques et dévoués).
Excellent séjour, trop court....

We stayed two weeks at Puri Temple and found it perfect for a family of five - all adults. The situation is brilliant with beaches, places to eat, and shops all within a ten to fifteen minute walk. However once you were inside the gates the villa was private and quiet. I would confirm what others have written - what makes the villa so good is the staff. Nothing is too much bother for them and when my husband and I got "Bali Belly" the girls got us coconut water and made sure we were ok. They are also brilliant cooks and as well as a choice every breakfast they cooked dinner for us and bought in the food for a BBQ. It is also reassuring to have night security as well. We also went on 4 day trips organised through the villa and the driver was excellent.
We came to have a holiday with my son, who is a dive instructor on Bali, and he thought the villa was excellent and that I couldn't have chosen a better one in a better situation.

“Puri Temple offers peace, serenity, great pool, lounge and bedrooms and fantastic staff.”
From the first greeting from our driver Nyoman at the airport and meeting the staff -Ayu, Putu and Wati at Puri Temple, we felt well looked after. Great amenities and a short walk to nearby restaurants.
This was our second stay at the Puri Temple Villa, it was amazing, the house is just beautiful. The staff are amazing, we were so spoilt by Wattie's lovely cooking, Ayu and Putu are fantastic and can't do enough for you. The girls planned our day trips, our massages etc. we can't wait to go back for our 3rd visit, love it!
"How Bali Should be Experienced"
I was in great need of a short break from work so decided it was time to go back to Puri Temple. It has all the pleasures of Bali without any of the hassles. Traffic is so light you can walk or cycle to the beach without having to dodge any traffic. Just great views of padi fields, village life, the coast line and dotted within the local landscape an increasingly diverse range of eating places. It is three years since I wrote my earlier review so there have been some new developments in Canggu but all positive contributions catering to the needs of tourists – especially their need to eat! Was spoilt for choice where to stroll to for lunch – most also deliver food to the villa too if you want.
Puri-temple remains a great peaceful hide-way, with exceptionally friendly, helpful staff who can rustle up wonderful meals. Was like meeting up with old friends again – they make you feel so welcome. Unless especially arranged they go home at 6 but there is a night security guard so you have privacy and security. The villa is exceptionally well-maintained – it looks exactly like the photos on the website. Sitting on the Bale day or night is a great way to unwind – as is swimming in the pool though my husband preferred the pool table. It is also easy to get a car to take you over to Seminyak (20/25 minutes away) or Tanah Lot (15 mins) but this time we decided to go further afield and explore the 3 lakes at Bedugal - the villa booked a driver for us for a very reasonable price and we had a great day out which also took in the renown rice fields at Jatiluwih (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Botanical Gardens and a local market in the hills. Ubud makes another good day out.
Puri Temple makes the ideal get away from city life for all age groups – my daughter in her twenties enjoys as much with her friends as my husband and I do with ours. It is also ideal for people with children - lots of space for activities and the owners have thought of all the guests needs. Good music systems, collection of DVDs, books, sports channel – and if you can't escape completely from work the internet connection is fine!
"Yet another superb holiday at Puri Temple"
We had yet another superb holiday at Puri Temple - Bali. Having been several times now we are still so excited when we return.
The accomodation is maintained to the highest standard, always so clean and fresh, with great aircon - all the comforts of home.
We are welcomed as if we are special which is lovely and well looked after nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
What we appreciate is the up to date local leaflets and extra information on take aways, taxis and car hire with or without driver.
We would highly reccomend Puri Temple to everyone
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Puri Temple. Plenty of room, lovely pool and dinner under the outdoor gazebo. The three girls made us very welcome and do everything they can to make your stay as relaxing as possible. They even took our boys down to the surf on their mopeds! The pool table was a hit with everyone and all our pool skills improved dramatically over our 8 night stay. Ayu will make up a great pina colada for you to enjoy poolside with a book from the small library. The owners also organise a driver for you to see the island at around $45AUS a day. Wati will cook you a lovely dinner on request. Lovely place & hope to get back there some day!
"Amazing villa, relaxing abode & great staff!"
We stayed for 4 nights with a group of 6 couples. The villa was huge with enough living areas for privacy and entertainment.
The pool and pool table was great fun and dinner on the upper gazebo area was a nice change.
The staff were friendly and lovely. Made delicious omelettes, pancakes and traditional Indonesian breakfast so fast and delicious fresh blended juices to match.
The driver we had was great, very lovely and such a reasonable price for a whole day of travelling!
We ordered dinner from a couple of places in canggu which deliver for free or very cheap. Beatlenut was delicious and Deus was a favourite amongst the boys.
The location is reasonably close to beach, 10 min walk to canggu beach. We hired scooters with surfboard racks and drove down each morning to check surf . Scooter hire approx 40000 parking at the beach 2000 rupiah (keep ticket).
Canggu is up and coming area, still quite rural with a bit of construction happening but not to busy and hectic like kuta & seminyak.
"The perfect holiday destination in the perfect villa"
My husband and I went to Bali and stayed at Puri Temple for 8 days with 4 close friends. Having found the villa online, it seemed like a dream destination, and I'm happy to report that it lived up to, and exceeded expectations, on every front.
Puri Temple is simply stunning. It is your own private eden; having had the villa all to ourselves, we had complete privacy to lounge around the pool, and have dinner and drinks up at the outdoor table on the upstairs balcony - Balinese style. The girls who look after the villa are just amazing - they are humble, beautiful, attentive, highly skilled women who cook breakfast every morning, tidy the rooms, and generally keep the place looking beautiful. You also have your own in- house chef that is happy to shop for ingredients and cook gorgeous meals, including fresh prawns and snapper on the BBQ, coupled with traditional Balinese delights.
The bedrooms and bathrooms - including an open air shower in the queen bedroom are spectacular - in particular the master suite upstairs. There is a massive pool table, an upstairs lounge to keep children entertained, and it is well situated to the beach (5 minutes away) and shops.
Staying at Puri Temple was honestly one of the best weeks I've ever spent, and I've travelled a lot. Aisyah was wonderful in making the organization of the trip easy and was most accommodating on all fronts. It was a pleasurable process from start to finish, and am very much hoping to repeat the experience as soon as I can.
Thank you to Aisyah and all the girls at Puri Temple for such an amazing stay. Very special.
"Lived up to expectations and then some!"
Great villa, the pictures match the reality and earch area of the villa was well thought out and a nice palce to spend time. The gazebo/dinning area on the top level was my favourite place to see out and enjoy dinner. The staff were super friendly, amazing cooks and nothing you asked was too much for them! I would definitely recommend a visit if you are planning a trip to Bali. Close to Echo Beach but a bit further out from Seminyak.
"Most Amazing Villa Experience Ever!"
5 close friends and 1 stayed at Puri Temple Villa in May 2013 for 7 days (wish it had of been longer!). Upon arriving at the airport we were greeted by a lovely man holding a sign with my name ready to take all 6 of us to the Villa.
Upon arriving at the Villa it was everything we expected and more. We had pre-arranged dinner to be cooked for us and smells coming out of the kitchen were amazing. Wati and the girls were so lovely and accommodating and the food was amazing!!!! Nothing was too much trouble, massages were organised, shopping trips, Ryan our driver was amazing and I simply can not stress the ease of waking up sitting by the pool, eating a home cooked breakfast, arranging a home cooked lunch to be eaten upstairs or down and never having to lift a finger.
We loved Puri Temple Villa so much that I have recommended to all my friends and will not hesitate to book again soon.
Thanks to everyone who made our holiday such an amazing, relaxing and unforgettable experience.
"Beautiful villa with pool, pool table and two separate units within walking distance of Echo Beach"
Puri Temple was the third villa we stayed in whilst spending 2 weeks in Bali and our favourite. It had a very peaceful atmosphere, was very comfortable, the staff lovely - they looked after us so well and cooked some fabulous meals - and we found it very easy to walk out in the evenings through the village to restaurants nearby.
We very much enjoyed endless games of pool, and wallowing in the swimming pool to get away from the heat. Wi-fi is always very important as many of us run businesses and the connection was the best of the 3 villas we stayed in.
The combination of luxury accommodation, delightful staff and a great location make this a great place to stay.
"Excellent - Spacious, clean, friendly, brilliant location."
Yet another wonderful, relaxing holiday at Puri Temple One. This is our second visit here and we were not disappointed. The welcome was warming and the staff could not do enough to help us during our stay. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and ours rooms were cleaned daily. We relaxed by the large pool and hired a driver (which was so easy) to go further afield visiting this magnificent island. We had several lunch times and evenings relaxing at a local restaurant at echo beach, and if we did not want to go out after relaxing by the pool we ordered takeaways. Local shopping has a variety of shops and cafe's incl designer shopping. Of course I must mention the markets which are fantastic with local crafts and produce. Restaurants have a large variety of traditional and European food on their menus and a lot are local to puri temple.
We will certainly be returning again for a third visit next year.
"Great Place to Stay and Relax"
The Villa is beautifully maintained, is very modern with everything you need for a relaxing stay and very nicely furnished. The staff is very courteous and helpful to make your stay perfect. The cook is excellent offering a great variety of options for all ages and tastes. The swimming pool is very nice with an integrated Jacuzzi and there is a volleyball net that can be used for the pool. The Villa is closed to Echo Beach which is a great surfing beach for the teenagers to learn. The owner offers to arrange for a car and driver for the day at a very reasonable rate.
"Best of Bali - Stunning Villa"
We returned home recently from our Bali holiday. We spent our first four nights in a resort at Jimbaran and then we had 7 wonderful nights at Puri Temple. Next time we won't bother with an expensive resort, we can't wait to return to Puri Temple. The Villa is just beautiful. Everything was immaculate and exactly like the photo's on the web. The girls (Wati, Aryu and Putu) are just divine. I was concerned it may be intrusive but it wasn't at all. You have complete privacy but the staff can't do enough to help you and they were so sweet to our children. They really care and take pride in the Villa almost as if they own the Villa. Wati also cooked us a Balinese feast for Christmas day and it was the best meal of the trip. We also loved the location, quiet and safe away for the hustle and bustle. It cost us $2.50US for a taxi to Echo Beach which is amazing and the local eats and takeaways were excellent and well priced. My husband and son both got sick when we were staying at the resort in Jimbaran - everyone's tummies were 100% during our time at Canggu. We also hired a driver for a few days to get our busy/shopping fix. The girls also arranged for us to have in villa spa treatments that were great and inexpensive. I really feel that by staying at Canggu and Puri Temple we really got to experience the very best of Bali. The Gavin Family Brisbane Australia
