PURI GANESHA does not pretend to be one of the newest, trendiest resorts on the island,
with all the latest gadgets, bells and whistles, BUT this tiny,
elegant resort has aged gracefully (like it’s owners have tried to do too!)
and is regarded by many weary seen-it-all hedonists from all over the world
to be a happy, peaceful place where they can just veg out (literally with all the good,
healthy food served!), restore their equilibrium and simply feel nurtured and looked
after as if they were some of the owners favourite houseguests.
PURI GANESHA is famous for many reasons: for the huge, carefully and lovingly designed beachfront villas
individually decorated with antiques and beautiful fabrics all over Indonesia, for the master
bedrooms with amazing sea views, spacious garden bathrooms, cool terracotta floors,
for feasting on innovative, light and tasty food to revive both body and soul,
for simply letting lazy days go by spent reading, perhaps writing a little or
swimming in the warm private pool, for the wonderfully therapeutic massages and
the interesting discussions about food - especially Balinese and Southeast Asian food,
traditions and culture over dinner with Diana in the beachfront library and for the fun
days out discovering and exploring the many ancient and interesting sights of North Bali,
many repeat guests agree that a ‘’real’’ holiday just doesn’t get any better!

IF YOU PREFER……PEACE & QUIET & NO BRAND, SMALL RESORTS With only four villas, the resort is very personal, with Gusti and Diana on hand to explain anything you need to know, organize exciting discovery tours and special dining experiences!
BEING IN THE COUNTRYSIDE, FAR FROM CROWDS? Puri Ganesha is a tiny resort in an unspoilt fishing village in the northwest corner of Bali, far from the crowds of the south or Ubud.
A HUGE CHOICE OF DIFFERENT PLACES TO SIT & RELAX DURING THE DAY? Sit upstairs on the terrace overlooking the garden and the peaceful Bali Sea, sit on the downstairs terrace overlooking the pool, by the pool or in the ricebarn by the beach to just gaze out to sea!
REALLY GOOD FRESHLY PREPARED, HEALTHY FOOD WITH NOT A BURGER OR FRENCH FRY IN SITE? Our chefs are local and have worked with Diana to create exciting, healthy menus using purely local ingredients. The resort has a Slow Food ‘Snail of Approval’ and only imports about 10 ingredients
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT LOCAL CULTURE, VISIT HISTORICAL SITES, PERHAPS TAKE PART IN LOCAL FESTIVALS AND SEE HOW THE LOCALS LIVE THEIR LIVES? CAN HAPPILY ENTERTAIN YOURSELF? We have a good library, games and a huge selection of DVD’s for you to borrow. Most of our guests like to sit and talk, sometimes dine together or read a good book!
LIKE TO DISCOVER THE BEST THAT THE AREA HAS TO OFFER WITH A DRIVER & GUIDE BUT WITHOUT FEELING LIKE A TOURIST? One of the reasons to come to this area is the lack of traffic gridlock. The old Dutch capital, Singraja is an hour away and there are many interesting things to see there; antiques, weavers, unique temples and much more…
DON’T MIND OUR INQUISITIVE DALMATIANS COMING TO VISIT YOU OCCASIONALLY to check that everything is alright with you?
BEING ADVENTUROUS AND WANTING TO LEARN ABOUT THE BEST LOCAL FOOD? If you are a ‘foodie’ who likes to cook, please come to take part in one of our Food Weeks (see details in the e-brochure on the website!)
QUIET, ATTENTIVE but UNOBTREUSIVE SERVICE? Our staff are all from the village and only 2 of them had the chance to complete secondary school. This means that their education was limited and their English skills are not the best either. They are cheerful and happy to help with anything and if there are language problems, Gusti or Diana can always help further!We have watched them develop over the years and are very happy to see how much they are appreciated by the guests they look after, even though they cannot hold conversations about their culture! Their warmth is a quality that cannot be taught, it is really genuine and stems from their hope to make their guests feel at home while they are here!
A VERY COMFORTABLE SUPER KINGSIZE FOUR-POSTER BED, HANDMADE BEDLINENS, ANTIQUE FURNITURE, LOCAL FABRICS & STAYING IN A ROMANTIC, COSY VILLA? Relax surrounded by beautiful antique furniture, each piece individually chosen by Diana and usually made of old, re-cylcled wood. There is no shiny marble or power showers.
CAN LIVE WITHOUT HIGH SPEED INTERNET 24/7, switch off and have a rest from the daily intrusion!
