I was born and raised in Malaysia - and other than being schooled in the UK - I have lived and worked in SE Asia all of my life. I have been visiting Bali since 1986.
I live and work in Bangkok so it's only a 4 hour flight down to my villa which I acquired in May 2018. It took 4 months to make her 'just right' and we opened our doors end-2018. I have been blessed with a Balinese manager named Ketut who looks after the villa brilliantly - and equally importantly, the guests that fly in from all corners of the world.
I was a regular AirBnb guest and was frequently disappointed by the hands-off approach from many hosts..little or no customer experience. In my opinion this is a service industry that we a part of. So we have gone out of our way to ensure that this is a fun, luxurious yet affordable experience beyond compare in Bali, the Island of Gods and Spirits.
I am very happy that Villa Nyumpené is the first in Bali to be listed on Houfy!
