10 star villa on a 5 star rating system
The house is beautiful located on a black sand beach that glitters in the sun. Incredibly private and restful. The staff takes care of everything! The best part of the whole experience is the chef, Puta, who makes the most amazing food ever! Gourmet meals every day. We loved it! Bestfamilyvacationever#
Stunning Villa for Peace, Quiet and Rest
Villa CarakA is absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do the villa complete justice. During our almost 3 weeks on Bali, Villa CarakA ranks as the best place we stayed. We had initially planned on just laying our heads there, but after arriving, we ended up actually spending most afternoons/evenings and one full day just at the villa - wandering the grounds, swimming the beautiful pool, walking the back country roads and taking a nap under the bale. If you are truly seeking rest and relaxation this is the place to go - the staff is unobtrusive and you would never know there are individuals around.
We had most meals (breakfast and dinner) at the villa and the cooking was marvelous. We highly encourage you to partake of the Balinese cuisine. Excellent, excellent meals!
I would say the only negative (and it really isn't a negative) is the cost of the car/driver for the day. All other locations on Bali, a day would cost between IDR 400K and IDR 500K. Villa CarakA was the most expensive at between IDR 600K and IDR 700K per day. Granted this may be due to distance, but considering some of our other trips from the other villas in which we stayed were 2 -3 hours in length each way, we think we are comparing apples to apples. If you have an opportunity for another car/driver, I would recommend investigating.
Lastly, tip liberally. The staff deserve it. Remember, the average salary on Bali is IDR 1.3 million which is roughly US$100/95Euro per month. Putu and Jero (the housekeepers) did an outstanding job in the kitchen and taking care of all of our needs. Kadek and Rico arrived early every morning at 7 to take care of the massive grounds and literally, most of the time, we did not know they were around, even though, we were usually up by 6am. Lastly, Pendi, the night security guard is wonderful. He'd check in every night with us and we would usually end up having a conversation for an hour - discussing our day, life on Bali, his family and the like. A truly gentle and nice man. Even after working from 19h to 6h, he came by at 11 on our departure day to say goodbye and thank us for staying.
If you are headed to the north of Bali, don't mind being off the beaten path and want to disconnect, Villa CarakA is the place for you. We are even already considering our return for a longer time period!
Thank you verry much for this positive opinion. Ger.
This was the best vacation we had experienced.
Thank you very much for Ger supporting our wonderful vacation on the Villa CarakA.
We were very happy to have an excellent food Putu and Jero made and to drink a lots of the Bintang beer and wines almost everyday. And we have been relaxed and comfortable anytime in the rooms, garden and bathrooms Putu and Jero completely cleaned up.
Thank you very much for Kadet and Riko as a gardener maintained a beutiful garden and clean pool, their friendly smile made us happy anytime. We told them to take care of the heat stroke in the strong sun light for a long time working.
Goody, as a driver, transported us safely and rapidly to anywhere we wanted. We like cute three dogs in his house.
Pendi, as a security guard, came to the villa almost every evening, and talked with each other very friendly and frankly.
This was the best vacation we had experienced before. We hope to come again soon.
Stunning villa set in beautiful tranquil gardens
We stayed here, just one couple, for a fabulous week. We could not fault this villa, position, or staff in any way. it was just the peaceful bliss that we wanted for our week on the north coast of Bali. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious, cooked to order. The housekeepers Putu and Jeru were fabulous. They kept the house beautifully clean and tidy, the gardens were stunning lovingly maintained daily by Karen and Rico . the pool where we swam hours every day was wonderful. We swam from first thing in the morning to last thing before bed. Swimming under the stars was truly amazing! The night watch Pendi was a chatty man at the end of the day. The dolphin boat came to the private beach one morning, and took us to see the wonderful creatures in the sea as the sun rose. Would recommend this trip. . Even if you didn't see the dolphins ( which we'd did) watching the sun rise from the mirror like sea was stunning. Thank you Ger for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We will be back Nigel and Jane !!!! Xx
Thank you Jane and Nigel. Ger

Herzlichen dank Peter .
The stay at this beautiful part of the world was truly amazing.
The property is in very good condition and the staff is very attentive and eager to make the stay an unforgettable one.
Even all extra asks where taken care of - thanks again for this!
With our stay we introduced the „floating breakfast“ to this amazing pool - so the tray is there now and we wish future guests as amazing moments as we enjoyed them!
Thanks Bodo for this opinion and the introduction of a floating breakfast an leaving the tray.
Caraka villa is located in North Bali. This part is authentic. During a walking tour to see the rice terraces in the mountains, there are daily Hindu ceremonies. Sekumpul waterfalls are breathtaking. A massage by Ami on the balcony of Villa Caraka is irresistible (http: // ami-spa-home com /.). Hatten winery, the only winery in Bali, its vineyards just behind villa Carakas and a small tasting room 10 km away from the villa (http: // www. Hatten wines com / html vineyards_welcome....
