About Norin & Mark Luijten
We: Mark and Norin built the first villas, Villa AyoKa and Villa AyoDe in the South of Bali in 2009. After many years travelling around Bali, we discovered the beauty of North West of Bali. A non touristic area that can offer a truly relaxing holiday on the beach. The Melaya villas then built in 2014 and finished in June 2015 with the authentic of Joglo style.
Norin & Mark Luijten purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Norin & Mark Luijten chose Beraban
We love to stay in Bali and decided to stay in a calm and peaceful environment but not far from the crowded areas. Therefore we chose Kedungu area to build our first two villas in 2009. In 2014, we built another 3 beachfront villas in the North West of Bali.

A Big Slice of Heaven
WOW!!! Where to begin? We were a party of three couples and our week at Villa AyoKa couldn’t have been a more perfect introduction to Bali and all things Balinese.
First, the location: We wanted a place outside of the cities; we wanted a beautiful and calm retreat after a day of sightseeing. Villa AyoKa was perfect. It is situated in the middle of rice fields on the edge of a tiny, non-touristy village. At 6 a.m., you could hear music and chanting drifting over the rice fields from the temple, while the smell of flowers and light field smoke wafted over you. It was enchanting. There is one fun and funky bar/restaurant about a 15 minute walk towards the beach, which offers a variety of drinks and good food. We, however, did most of our dining at the villa.
We were fortunate to experience two Balinese rituals/celebrations (a funeral and a three-month baby celebration), which would have been very unlikely if we had stayed in a different type of accommodation.
In spite of being out of the city, with the availability of a driver and car just a request away, we were able to explore many of the wonderful natural, cultural and culinary delights Bali has to offer.
Second, the villa itself: Gorgeous comes to mind. The villa is enclosed in its own garden with living/dining open to the air but under the protection of lofty Balinese roofs. Two of the bedrooms are spacious, king-bedded rooms with lots of storage space; the other twin-bedroom is smaller with not as much natural light but is still a lovely room. The swimming pool is large and very welcoming after a day exploring. The photos of the villa and garden are very accurate.
Finally, and most importantly, the staff: Oh, my goodness, were we ever spoiled. There are six wonderful people who took care of us at the villa: The property manager, the cooks, the housekeeper and general handyman, the gardener and pool man, and a security person. The warmth, kindness and generosity of spirit that all of the staff showed us made our stay unforgettable. The explained the celebrations we witnessed; many of them lived in the village and could tell us who everyone was. Unbelievable. We were made to feel like part of their families. We all had rather large lumps in our throats when we had to say goodbye.
We cannot recommend Villa AyoKa too highly.
Thank you very much for your review.
We were very touched, it was a very beautiful experience that you shared.
Hopefully your review can be a guide for our future guests.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we sincerely hope to welcome you as our special guest in the near future.
Villa Ayo & Team
Beautiful villa and pool with attentive staff in peaceful surroundings.
We stayed for 5 nights in mid July with our family of 4 - including 2 young boys, 5 and 7. We were immediately impressed with the property, beautiful and large pool, well maintained gardens and chilled out living area (which is all outside/covered). The rooms were very spacious and bathrooms exceptional. Note they are detached. Staff were excellent, available when needed but discreet enough to ensure we never felt like we had no privacy. We ate around half our meals in the villa and the other half at local restaurants in Canggu. We used the local driver (semi attached to the villa) which is a must if wanting to get to Canggu village and enjoy the great selection of restaurants/shops etc - some 20-30 mins drive (always more coming back for some reason......). We walked to the nearby beach with kids which was a fun, meandering 20 min excursion, catching a bit of local village life. Kedungu beach is much quieter than Canggu beaches, with good but strong surf and rips so caution required when swimming. There is a good restaurant/pub near beach with good western food, drinks and beautiful sunset viewing. Overall we rated this property very highly, it's not in the middle of the action, but perfect if you are wanting relaxing time with friends/family in a stylish villa with great pool environment.
We were lucky to have spent holidays at Villa AyoKa, the villa is beautiful and the facilities are excellent. All of staffs were very help full and we were made to feel very special. If you want a relaxing holiday where you are treated like royalty away from the usually holiday then I would highly recommend you book to come here. We will definitely be back.
Beautiful view and friendly staff
Authentic Balinese style villa.
Amazing place to stay in.
We had a great stay in villa ayoka. The staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed their company. Katut's and puto's cooking was excellent and Wayan did a good job cleaning the rooms. We will come back here again when we come back to bali. I highly recommend this villa it was clean and had excellent service.
Villa AyoKa is located in a quite area of Kedungu, 5 minutes by bike to the world famous Tanah lot temple on the sea and 1 km to Kedungu beach where you can join surfers mingle on the wave.
