We stayed here for 6 nights and love it so much we stayed another 2 nights on return from Lombok. We had all villa and pool for our selves, service was impeccable, friendly staff, grounds beautiful, relaxing and incredible enjoyable. Betty organized 4 motorbikes with surfboard holder so we easy drove to different beaches and was great for our evenings out. You really can’t got past this Bali Villa Marene!!
Staying August 2014, traveled as friends
Bali Villa Marene was the perfect place to pick to start our Bali vacation. We stayed here 4 nights before going to Undud and than Lovina with 3 couples and 6 kids. We were looking for somewhere relaxing and tranquil slightly out of the way and this place certainly ticked all the boxes. The tropical style buildings and surroundings are just beautiful, and being just outside of busy Seminyak it was ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet around the pool or relaxing in the grounds.
The staff are so welcoming and kind, they even unprompted noticed it was my birthday (think they read the date from his passport) and surprised us at lunch with a birthday cake!
The villa is about 10 minutes by car from Centre Seminyak and Echo Beach and a regular free shuttle service into town is provided or transport can be arranged for you at a small charge and local tours can be arranged via the front desk. We made good use of the spa treatments and the home cooking (the food is really good as are the drinks) for when we just felt like being lazy and not going out.
The only slight draw back from being out in the fields is there isn’t anything in easy walking distance, and obviously for being in rural setting you get the noise of the animals (in particular a certain demented rooster next door) but that just adds to the charm.
We certainly would recommend Villa Marene to anyone wanting to experience a true getaway.
Notre second séjour à Bali Villa MARENE reste excellent comme le premier! Le staff est au petit soin pour ses hôtes et ce avec un merveilleux sourire. Le petit déjeuner pris sur la terrasse avec vue sur les rizières est magique. Le cadre de cette villa avec une piscine forte agréable centrée entre les chambres et les rizières est un paradis. Une veillée de Noël exceptionnelle avec un repas élaboré sur mesure pour cette occasion restera inoubliable. Nous avons séjourné avec nos grand parents et les 4 enfants. Les chambres sont toutes spacieuses, agréable avec une belle salle de bain. Merci à Betty et Daniel et tout le staff pour la visite privée des rizières et de Mengwi ainsi que de l’organisation de nos journées de visites de Bali. A bientôt pour un troisième séjour.
we have been traveling to Bali for over 12 years now and have stayed in a wide variety of villas in several different areas of Bali, and have to say that this villa is hands down the most tranquil and beautiful villa I’ve had the pleasure of staying in.
First of all this villa is in the most ideal spot and is away from the hassle and bustle of the main streets of Seminyak but still a stones throw to all the best restaurants, shops and bars. There is absolutely no noise from traffic or construction sites like other areas of Bali.
The villa is perfectly laid out and is ideal for a large family or even a group of friends/couples.
Amenity-wise it has absolutely everything you want and is very modern yet definitely has a Balinese feel to it. The staff are top notch too and the maids were extra-friendly and very welcoming.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Best location for relaxing and culinary lovers, very near to the beach and very good place to stay. We love to stay again next time in this villa, absolutely recommended this place for your holiday accommodation.

Such a relaxing time, accommodation amore Mio made it the best time, such an inviting pool, large living area, outdoor entertainment area and air conditioned rooms. Close by to Seminyak eateries and shops. Nicely centrally located I would recommend this fantastic Villa for anyone wishing for a private villa and also the service staff are so polite and cook a yummy breaky. Will definitely be back soon… 🙂
Happy Traveller from Melbourne
lieber herr Daniel & Frau Betty,
Unser 10 Tagen urlaub in ihrem entzückenden haus war wirklich wunderschön. Das alles so wunderbar verlaufen ist, haben wir größtenteils Daniel und seiner liebe Frau zu verdanken. Sie sind wirklich ein ausgezeichneter fahrer, sehr höflich und zuvorkommend. Die massagen sind einfach himmlisch und ich werde sie hier schrecklich vermissen. Nächsten frühling mit sicherheit wieder, urlaub auf bali in ihrem haus. Liebste grüße christiane mochny

Our group of 12 (8 adults, 4 kids) stayed at the Villa for 12 nights. From the moment we were met by the Villa driver at the airport, our stay was perfect. Upon entering the property, you’re greeted with a welcome drink, and the most beautiful kitchen / lounge / dining that flows over a pond into a gorgeous pool and garden area.
The six large modern bedrooms (4 up, 2 down) all with half open air bathrooms offered great pleasure when liked being some alone.
I was in Puri Bali-passion for my wedding with all my family and best friends, everybody were happy, we had big room, nice comfort bed, sitting corner, bar corner , nice service since morning and all day, big dining room for all family, nice sitting room with big tv…
We stayed there for 2 wee ks during the 2012/2013 Xmas period. That is 4 families: 8 adults and 10 kids aged 2 to 10 yrs old.
This rental is ideal for groups, it is large (8 bedrooms which you can each access independently) and the layout is such that we did not feel like we were on top of each other at all. As there is enough space, we could all meet in common areas or be in separate areas at the same time (eg, dining room, living room, little ‘hut’ next to the pool overlooking the rice fields..).
The staff and the owners were always available for us, extremely helpful and responsive. This included the fact that every morning when the parents got up the kids had already been given breakfast by the staff – a real holiday.
The rooms are all very large, furniture is tasteful, one room has a very large couch where we can easily fit 10 kids for an evening movie (bring some Dvds or some aVI format movies & memory key). The property overlooks the rice fields, so when having drinks or swimming in the pool that is the view you get. The swimming pool is large (as you can see on the pictures).
In short – I highly recommend this property and I would go back there.
