What our clients have to say about Palm Living - Part Two
Below you find testimonials of some of our clients. Yes, we asked them to write something, but the text is theirs. We have changed our trading name a while ago, so we have changed that. Its still the same company however. You may even find links to some of the websites our clients have created after they bought from us.

Review of Palm Living – Lovina,
My husband, Robert, first visited Lovina in March 2014 on a short vacation. We have been expats living and working in the Middle East since the year 1999. We had begun to realise that we needed a house but did not want to go back to the UK, where I am from, or Australia, where Robert is from.
We had been looking at Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines but when Robert visited Lovina he felt that it was right for us. In the May of 2014 we both went to Lovina to see what the property situation was. After some research we contacted Palm Living. Jeroen met us at our hotel the very next day to show us properties available to buy but nothing really took our fancy. We had seen from the Palm Living website that they also built houses but thought the undertaking would be too much for us to manage from afar. The next day Jeroen took me to see some newly built houses for clients. I must say, it was hard not to be impressed at the design and beauty of the properties and the thought crept in, “could I really own a house like this?”
Robert wanted somewhere in the hills, not too far from town and towards the end of the day we visited a piece of land that was for sale. It was a spit of land on the side of the hill and the views all around were just stunning. It only took a few conversations between Robert and myself before we decided that we could buy the land and build a dream house.
The path from buying the land to building the villa could not have been smoother. We hired a lawyer, recommended by a friend to check out the contracts and all the paperwork and it was all correct without any hitches. We bought the land in August 2014 and once all contracts were signed and down payments made work began. We received emailed pictures from the very minute ground was broken. We were kept involved every step of the way and given enough thinking and planning time to make our own decisions. Robert wanted specific solar power and a salt water swimming pool. The combined efforts of Robert’s research and contact made by the guys at Palm Living made sure that Robert’s wishes were met.
Throughout the whole process we never felt that we were being pressured to accept something we did want or understand. We were involved where needed and never had any worries or felt there were any trust issues. All the guys at Palm Living make you feel comfortable and welcome yet fully professional in their abilities.
Even now almost one year after completion, the Palm Living team are on hand to help fix any little niggles that may arise at our beautiful dream house in Lovina. They are always willing to help out and give guidance. We feel lucky and privileged to have found such a comprehensive, professional service.

We have spent our first trip to Bali in a very nice hotel in South-Bali, but we wanted something more private. The 2nd visit was to North-Bali in a nice villa which tasted for more. On our 3rd visit we landed in a villa from Palm Living and we started to talk with the Palm Living team. Scouting, architect, notary public, construction company, garden design, we found all-in-one combined and we decided to invest and put our trust in the team. We never regretted that decision! Yes, we weren’t constructing something in Europe, but in Indonesia and sometimes the speed was not as desired and sometimes the quality, but we made good progress and the result is fabulous. All of our guests speak highly of the comfort and service!
Even after the finalization of the villa the Palm Living team is always there with advice and support; whether it is for in-house maintenance or garden and pool advice, their service is superb – this is not just the average company, these are friends!
We can highly recommend the team as your partner.

If we were to summarize our experience with Palm Living, we would say that their tag line "at home in paradise" is an absolute reality.
All of what has been said in previous reviews is very true and the point we would like to emphasize if the extreme professionalism of the team.
From the first day we met end of 2012 when we found our dream land until the reception of the key of the villa, the whole process is being so well organized. Each team member provides a specialized advice and assistance in buying the land, obtaining all necessary permits, signing all contracts, designing the entire villa including the garden, following the construction work more than on a weekly basis and even finding some staff to help manage the villa. On the top of it, the team has always shown great level of availability and flexibility with our multiple requests.
But what impressed me the most is that even after the Villa is built, the staff still shows the same level of commitment and service than the first day of sales of the project. The team will continue to help you with maintenance and any question related to the management of the villa.
Having said all that, some will say that only results count. So, if you want to be impressed, go and visit the team and ask them for a guided tour of Villa Kembar, our home in paradise.
