TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PURI ASIA is a property management booking company, specializing in private villas throughout Bali, Lombok, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Thailand. Each time a guest confirms a booking through PURI ASIA via its website, email, telephone call, SMS or any other instant messaging platform, a rental contract is entered into between the Villa Owner and the Management Company (PURI ASIA) for the agreed upon time period (“Rental Period”), and the guest in whose name of the booking is made (the “Guest”). Each time a guest books a property through PURI ASIA, the guest is deemed to have agreed to these terms and conditions. The rental contract is not effective until PURI ASIA has confirmed the booking in writing.
Booking a private villa is very different from booking a regular hotel room, especially with regard to payments and cancellations. Please read the following conditions carefully.
When the Guest makes a booking request, the Guest must make the appropriate deposit payment to Puri Asia within 5 working days of availability confirmation. If the required deposit payment is not received within the 5 working day period, Puri Asia reserves the right to void the Guest’s booking request. The following deposit payment applicable to most villas.
- For rentals beginning more than 75 days after the date of the booking request – a deposit of 50% of the total rental amount is payable
- For rentals beginning 75 days or less after the date of the booking request – the total rental amount is payable as a deposit
Where a 50% deposit applies to the booking, the Guest must pay the remaining 50% balance not less than 75 days before the scheduled arrival date.
2. PAYMENT METHOD
We have two different payment methods available to make easier for you in villa booking. You can choose the one which is easiest in your situation.
– Wire Transfer.
International telegraphic transfer to our corporate bank account normally takes about three days. The amount transferred must include telegraphic transfer fees. If you choose to settle your payment by bank transfer, make sure that you allocate sufficient time before the due date. In the case you are aware that your transfer payment may not reach our account in time, promptly notify us by sending emailed scan of your transfer instruction receipt. Make sure that the receipt has bank’s authorization print-out. We have to receive the payment in full into our account. In the case of arriving payment is slightly less than required in the invoice because of transfer fee, bank’s charge, currency loss, etc. You are required to pay the remainder either along with your final payment (if you are paying deposit) or in cash upon arrival.
– Online Payment with Credit Card
Online payment is the simplest and quickest way to settle your bill. It also becomes the most favorite payment method for our guest to book their villas selection. ( Refer to Indonesian banking regulation requires all credit card transaction has to be made in Indonesian Rupiah. Therefore if you choose to pay by credit card, you will get your invoice pre-converted into Rupiah, refers to villa’s prevailing exchange rate. We will send you a link which will direct you to online form where you will have to fill in your credit card details. Please keep your payment receipt in case it required in the future. As soon as we receive the payment, we will issue a BOOKING CONFIRMATION NOTICE within 24 hour; advising you that the villa is locked for your stay. It can be subject to further (final) payment.
3. ADDITIONAL COSTS
The cost of electricity, mains water, cleaning and garden supplies, and also local taxes are included in our villas rental rates. There are generally no additional costs, surcharges, taxes, staff salaries, or management fees above the price quoted unless otherwise stated in the property description, the guest booking confirmation, or reservation voucher. If the information in any of these is inconsistent, the most recently issued terms will prevail. Typically telephone and internet charges and provisioning costs will be the guest’s responsibility. Gratuities for household staff are encouraged and normal, but are left entirely to the guest’s discretion.
Confirmation details, the private luxury villa address, contact details of the villa manager, transfer arrangements, and directions to the property will be sent to the guest in a reservation voucher, when full payment is received. This voucher along with the guest’s passport is need to be presented upon arrival.
5. ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE TIMES
Typical check-out and check-in times are 12:00 pm and 3:00pm respectively unless stated otherwise. PURI ASIA will work with villas owner or owner’s representative to accommodate the guest’s actual arrival and departure times, and also subject to availability. Please do advise PURI ASIA of any changes to the guest’s schedule so every effort can be made to accommodate them.
A security deposit may be payable directly to the owner or owner’s representative immediately upon arrival at your selected villa in Bali. The standard security deposit required for each private luxury villa property is stated in the property description; however the owner has the right to impose different requirements on a case by case basis. Access to the property may be refused if security deposit is not paid in full. When the security deposit is required to be paid in cash, or when a non-standard security deposit applies, PURI ASIA will inform the guest in advance of the amount payable and any other conditions. The security deposit will be normally refunded at the end of the rental period, after deducting: all additional expenses incurred on the guest’s behalf (e.g. additional charges for goods, services and staff, which have not been directly paid by the guest, and telephone and internet charges, if applicable) and the cost of replacement or repair for any loss or damage to the property or its surrounds or contents caused during the rental period. If this cost cannot be reasonably determined prior to the guest’s departure, the owner or the owner’s representative is entitled to withhold a reasonable estimate from the guest’s security deposit, and will return any balance to the guest as soon as possible after the actual cost has been determined.
7. DAMAGE OR LOSSES
A villa property is typically someone’s home. Please treat villas property rented accordingly, and leave the property and all its contents in good order and in an acceptably clean condition. Any damage or losses caused during the rental period, as well as any special cleaning requirements will be the guest’s responsibility and may be charged to the guest’s account and deducted from the guest’s security deposit. In cases of excessive or unacceptable loss or damage at any time during the rental period, the owner or owner’s representative may require the guest and their party, including visitors to vacate the property immediately, without compensation or refund.
The property and its facilities are available for the guest’s full enjoyment during the rental period. However owner, owner’s representative, or other staff and contractors may need access to the property from time to time (e.g. for maintenance purposes to the house, garden, swimming pool, utilities and services, or for the purposes of providing additional services requested by the Guest, etc). The guest is required to give them reasonable access to the property for these purposes.
9. NUMBER OF GUESTS
The number of persons (adults and children) staying at property must not exceed the maximum number of sleeping places indicated in the booking confirmation and reservation voucher, unless specifically authorized in writing. Exceeding this number may invalidate any insurance policy on Bali villas property. Entry or access to property may be refused or limited where the number of guests exceeds the stated requirement. No pets are allowed unless agreed in writing in advance.
10. USE OF PROPERTY
All bookings are assumed to be for normal holiday purposes only, and the Guest agrees that the use of the Property will be limited to this purpose unless otherwise confirmed in writing. If the Guest is planning to hold an event, such as a wedding or party, which involves having a larger number of people at the Property, or if the Guest is planning to use the Property for a purpose other than holiday, please communicate this to Puri Asia at the time of booking, as special approval or arrangements may be required. Please note that same sex wedding ceremonies of any kind will not be accepted for properties in Indonesia to avoid potentially offending prevailing local customs and last minute disruptions to guest plans. Depending on the nature of the event, a surcharge and/or additional security deposit may be required, which will be agreed and confirmed in writing prior to confirming the reservation. Note that some Properties are in residential areas or estates, and some are subject to rules and regulations regarding their use. Therefore, it may not always be possible to grant permission for certain uses or activities due to these or other reasons beyond the control of Puri Asia and the Owner.

The Guest acknowledges and agrees that Puri Asia, the Owner and the Owner’s Representative cannot control the issue of these permits. If the police and/or the local community refuse to issue a permit for an event at the Property, the Owner or the Owner’s Representative will refund any event fee paid by the Guest to the Owner, however neither Puri Asia, the Owner nor the Owner’s Representative will be liable for any further refund or payment to the Guest.

Please note that these amendment policies apply for regular booking periods. Special amendment terms may apply for peak/high seasons and will be stated in property description, booking confirmation or reservation voucher. If the information in any of these is inconsistent, the most recently issued terms will prevail. In the unlikely event that PURI ASIA is unable for any reason (including the sale of a property and force majeure) to provide the guest with the property booked by guest, PURI ASIA reserves the right to transfer the guest and their party to an alternative private luxury villa property with similar type and value, in consultation with the guest. If the price of substituted property is less than the original booking, the difference will be reimbursed to the guest. If the price of the substituted property is higher than the original booking, the difference may be charged to the guest. However, after considerable effort by PURI ASIA, no alternative of similar type and value is available and / or no agreement can be reached between the guest and PURI ASIA, then either PURI ASIA or the guest may opt to cancel the booking and Bali villas rental contract. In that event, PURI ASIA will refund all cost that guest already paid, without further compensation.
Every attempt will be made for the guest to have an enjoyable stay. If the guest have a problem during rental period, please inform the owner or the owner’s representative immediately, who will endeavor to put things right.
