It’s hard to imagine a more perfect villa for families with older children, groups of friends or business partners, plenty of space and opportunity to enjoy meals and shared social times whilst being able to retreat to a terrace or garden daybed to read a book or enjoy a massage. You won’t be falling over each other on this manicured estate. Maridadi is also a spectacular backdrop for weddings, dinner parties, barbecues or sunset cocktails. Highly recommended is an evening cultural dance and music performance arranged by the villa staff, who can also prepare the famous Balinese Babi Guling (roast suckling pig) to make it an authentic Bali evening.

We particularly enjoyed long beach walks with ever-changing views – from wonderful villages with traditional outrigger fishing boats to stunning rice terraces, surfers and ceremonies. There is nothing nicer than returning from a long walk or bike ride to a pre-arranged massage or treatment selected from a menu at the villa (extra charge). Children of all ages invariably end up turning the front lawn into a football, rugby or cricket pitch and will find a variety of picnic spots, like the wooden rice barn, to add to their holiday fun.

The villa is a little off the beaten track with the nearest restaurants and shops 12 -14km away however with such a varied and expertly executed menu, and staff who will venture forth to purchase anything you wish for, we found this was of little consequence. If you do want to get out and about, the villa comes with a car and driver (petrol is charged).

When you have morning views over rice terraces and volcanoes, sunsets over sea temples and breaking surf, sublime comfort, superb cuisine and pampering staff there’s not much else to wish for.

Highlights

The space, the views and the meals were all wonderful, and sunset followed by dancers from the village make for a very enchanting evening. We also enjoyed the collection of artwork and sculpture around the villa.

Surprises

The sea is quite rough and rocky along this stretch of coast so not a swimming beach, and although the villa is set almost at the ocean’s edge, there is a small road in front which leads to the sea temple.

Struggling to find the words to express how much we enjoyed our 4 day stay at villa Maridadi. From the minute we arrived we were greeted by the fantastic staff...to our very sad farewell, we were looked after and cherished. The food was tasty, varied, exciting and beautiful. Each day brought new gastronomic wonders and variations of well known standards. Our rooms were beautiful and magically kept that way during the whole stay. How an earth can we return to normality. Thank you everyone. As we say in Aberdeen-Bon Accord - happy to meet, sorry to part, happy to meet again.

Our very special thanks to all the staff who made our week stay extra special in many ways. The chef especially, we thank for all delicious meal he cooked for us all. Wish we could take him home to Australia. Everyone of our family enjoyed the beautiful surrounding the villa, great workouts on the tennis court, the little kids loved playing ball. The highlight was all of us being able to relax the week together plus the beautiful tasty meals each day. Hopefully one day we will all return for another gorgeous experience in Bali at Villa Maridadi. It is very sad we all leave today and go in different direction back to Australia. Many thanks again everyone.

Two weeks of the warm smiles of Balinese..the humor..the graciousness... the sunset view of Tanah Lot quietly demanding the reverence of what it is. The sweet smell of the fallen frangipani seemingly every second...Thank You!

A truly amazing experience! Enjoyed every moment, sunsets at the tree house are not to be missed. Our fave Gusti foods: Seafood sate on lemongrass, marlin fish curry and fish cakes. Thank you Komang, Agus, Putu and Made, and all Maridadi Gang, Yola! A wonderful week, fantastic friends, wonderful staff!! What can be said when you are surrounded by sea, good food, a few drinks and smiles as big as the great outdoors - perfect in every way.

The villa, view, and staff was so amazing and beautiful we didn't want to leave. Our family of 9 including a 3 year old stayed 5 nights for our sister's 50th birthday. The expansive grounds and rooms were always kept pristine by the staff. They made sure our stay was pleasant and comfortable from the chef, to the attendants, to the grounds staff, to the driver and security. Chef Gusti created delicious dishes from Western to Asian fare. He ran the villa very efficiently including bringing in massage therapists as requested. Looking forward to a return visit.

The villa and the staff are magnificent. We were a group of 3 families and there was enough space for us to all enjoy the villa. The kids loved everything about it. The chef is absolutely marvellous and so accommodating. The food was of a high quality and was excellent. Our every needs were attended to by the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend the villa to other guests.

The villa was amazing, great pool & living areas with awesome view. Nice to be away from the chaos of Seminyak. Lots of room for kids & adults to play, felt like we never had to leave the villa. Chef Gusti was great and he ran the house very well and no request was a problem and the food was amazing.

To the lovely staff,

after 5 fantastic days in pardise we are leaving today - unfotunately. We appreciated your friendliness, hospitality and warmth very much. We want to say 'thank you' to everybody who made us a time we willnever forget. Special thanks to the worlds best chef Gusti who highlighted every day with his excellent cuisine. Unforgettable will be the seafood BBQ at the lumbung. This BBQ is much better than seafood at Jimbaran Beach!

We will keep this paradise in our mind and heart. We are leaving in the firm hope of returning soon. Thank you very much.

Your first german guests. See you!

We took our family away to Villa Maridadi and we had the best time ever.The staff are just the best and our chef cooked for us anything that we wanted.My 2 grandchildren will be sad to go home as they were allowed anything they wanted to eat.The staff were so good to them. Every thing was kept clean and tidy and we can honestly say that we have no complaints for anything. Thank you for sharing our dream in Bali Big hugs to all the staff Gay and Bruce Smith

We had such a wonderful stay at Villa Maridada. Spanning 3 generations from 2yrs old to nearly 80 years old, the villa catered for all our needs. We celebrated an 11th, 16th and 50th birthday and also fathers day and the villa staff were happy to source us cakes and candles!! The villa manager Yoga was very helpful along with the wonderful staff - chefs Kutut and Nyomen and the beautiful ladies 2 x katut and 2 x Putu!! Thank you so much and we hope to stay again. PS can we please order perfect surf for next time :)

The villa was presented in immaculate order with every detail taken care of by the friendly, professional and attentive staff. Communication with staff is very good, enabling the team to look after us very well. We appreciated the location as we wanted to chill and relax in a luxurious setting. It is not my first visit and I noticed that the gardens have developed beautifully. Management, overall care and maintenance is excellent. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Villa Maridadi embodies what I believe to be the essence of coastal bali luxury, the winning combination of a stunning beachside location, surrounded by rice terraces with wonderfully attentive staff, lush gardens and intelligently designed conviviality, I would absolutely recommend this villa.

8.67 out of 10
based on 65 user reviews. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect villa for families with older children, groups of friends or business partners, plenty of space and opportunity to enjoy meals and shared social times whilst being able to retreat to a terrace or garden daybed to read a book or enjoy a massage. You won’t be falling over each other on this manicured estate. Maridadi is also a spectacular backdrop for weddings, dinner parties, barbecues or sunset cocktails. Highly recommended is an evening cultural dance and music performance arranged by the villa staff, who can also prepare the famous Balinese Babi Guling (roast suckling pig) to make it an authentic Bali evening.

We particularly enjoyed long beach walks with ever-changing views – from wonderful villages with traditional outrigger fishing boats to stunning rice terraces, surfers and ceremonies. There is nothing nicer than returning from a long walk or bike ride to a pre-arranged massage or treatment selected from a menu at the villa (extra charge). Children of all ages invariably end up turning the front lawn into a football, rugby or cricket pitch and will find a variety of picnic spots, like the wooden rice barn, to add to their holiday fun.

The villa is a little off the beaten track with the nearest restaurants and shops 12 -14km away however with such a varied and expertly executed menu, and staff who will venture forth to purchase anything you wish for, we found this was of little consequence. If you do want to get out and about, the villa comes with a car and driver (petrol is charged).

When you have morning views over rice terraces and volcanoes, sunsets over sea temples and breaking surf, sublime comfort, superb cuisine and pampering staff there’s not much else to wish for.
