Hi Tati and staff, Just like to say thanks so much for a wonderful stay March/April 2012. We stayed in the Beach House which was just perfect for the 3 of us. What a way to start our holiday – we have been going to Bali for over 25 years but this is the first time we felt really relaxed and at home. We hope to come again next year and enjoy your hospitality once more. Cathy Brad & Jacklyn Kerr ~ Darwin Australia

Hello to all. I have been meaning to write to you since our stay with you in June. My partner John and I stayed in one of your Ocean View bungalows for a week. I just want to tell you that we were absolutely delighted with the room, service, friendliness, fantastic food and excellent value of the Surfers Package. Apart from the beautiful beaches and good waves at Balian Beach, it was a pleasure to return to our room and to dine in your restaurant. The view was exquisite, and your staff were first rate and friendly. Even the drive back to the airport with your excellent chef / stand by driver was a pleasure!. Thank you, once again, for a lovely stay. We have already recommended your place to all our friends. Kind regards, John Tipper and Margot Wiburd ~ June 2011 ~ http://www.margotwiburd.com

I just stayed for two weeks at Pondok Pisces with my three kids. After two months in Bali, I can only say that this was the best place, we ever stayed in. We were staying in their Alamanda Villa, which is, not only beautifully designed, but also large enought for a family, with comfortable beds, nice kitchen and bathroom and a beautiful view of the hotels tropical garden. The villa is right next to the swimming pool. The staff and owner of the hotel are the nicest in Bali, belive me. They will do anythig to make your stay an unforgetable experience. This is the one place that I will always dream of returning to. Dorte Bødstrup Hansen ~ Denmark ~ June 2010

We have enjoyed every minute from breakfast time to the night in our lovely bungalow. We have tried nearly everything from the menu and really appreciate every meal. We have spent splendid evening hours sitting in the garden café having a beer or a cocktail. Pondok Pisces matches perfectly with the wild and peaceful area (with an Australian pub touch). Dear Tom, Tati and team, thank you! … for your kindness, your help, your successful baby sitting with Julian. We have spent the perfect holiday with you. Many, many, hugs and kisses, Nathalie, Bertrand et Julian

Dear Tom, Tati and staff, Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality over the last 4 nights. We have had a fabulous time enjoying the peace, the food, the comfortable accommodation, the surf and above all your kindness.

We look very much forward to coming back – and we will be back!. We will also tell all of our friends about Pondok Pisces in the hope that they will come and share this “secret paradise” too.

Was soll ich sagen: Wir wollten für eine Nacht hier bleiben und blieben eine Woche!. Pondok Pisces war in paradiesischer Plate für uns. Es hat so vile Charme, die Besitzer und die Angestellten sind so herzlich, man hat einen wundervollen Sandstrand mit tollen Wellen, einen romantischen garten, der die sauberen Bungalows umgibt mit gepflegtem Freiluftbad. Das Restaurant serviest teckeres Essen … ein Plate zum zuhause fihlen und um ewig hier zu verweilen. Danke Euch! Eva Paster & Gery ~ Munich Germany
