And as I hate to leave things to the last minute, it was booked more than six months in advance.

The first reason I chose Puri Kobot was simply because of the price, cleanliness, and the view from the balcony overlooking some rice terraces.
The second reason was the communication I had with Sukma. I started talking to Sukma about our plans in Bali, how excited we were, and even after we left, we have stayed in touch and talk often.
Before you ask, no, I wasn’t asking for a discount, a better room, or complimentary services. I just wanted to get familiar with the locals and get to know them better. We paid for everything, and this review is purely based on our whole experience with Puri Kobot.
Since booking our stay, Puri Kobot had built four one-bedroom villas each with its own kitchenette, and until the end of June, Sukma was offering a discounted price for the villas. As soon I saw her videos on Instagram, I wanted to upgrade. The price we paid at the end of our stay for 3 nights, including breakfast was £140. For an extra £5, you can have a floating breakfast served in the infinity pool.
Sukma even arranged a driver, the fantastic Ketut, to collect us from the airport. Ketut became our personal driver and looked after us, but I will be writing more about him soon!
When I first met Sukma, she was just as I imagined, warm, friendly, kind, and she will do everything she can to make you feel special.
The villas are clean and spacious with wooden furniture, a big double bed surrounded by netting, a gorgeous bathroom with a bath filled to the brim with beautiful flowers (honeymoon package only), and a beautiful stone path leading to the outside shower which had hot water. The kitchenette is located outside the bedroom on the porch but is undercover with two bar chairs, fridge, cooker, kettle, with a sofa and table opposite. There’s also an infinity pool which is shared between the villas. The view got even better in the morning while overlooking the green rice terraces being dipped in the golden rays of the Bali Sun.
I absolutely loved the villa, it was one of the best accommodations we had in Bali, and I can’t thank Sukma enough for making us feel so welcome. From the very first moment until the last, she let us enjoy ourselves, but at the same time she looked after us, and we promise we will be back!
