We were so fortunate to find Weni's Bali Travel site while researching our 20 year-long dream of a luxury Bali trip. Weni advised 10+ days for our trip, and I'm sorry we didn't take her advice: we arranged only 7 days. Now we can't wait to go back and will once again contact DOYANTravel as our first step. We were so well taken care of, but also had our free time: a perfect combination. Weni was very flexible and helped us arrange the hotels we had been researching, combined with her fabulous guide/driver Yerry. He was very educated and we learned much Balinese culture and history, which was very important to us. She called us to be sure all was going well, and we were so glad to have the cell phone Yerry provided us. We recommend DOYANTravel for those who want individualized attention, culture and some luxury: a true life-experience.
We wanted to getaway for 14 days to an exotic, adventurous, luxurious and cultural destination to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We arrived in Bali and were driven by our personal driver Mr. Yerry, who was extremely knowledgeable about the local customs, sights, and just took extremely good care of us. We visited many temples in Bali (Uluwatu, Besaikh, Tirth Empul), all of which were extremely beautiful and so much history and culture associated with it. We also did a mountain bike ride which went through many villages and dirt roads and walked through rice fields. Many of the resorts we stayed at, had breathtaking views, luxurious rooms, great food, and the best part was the service. All the staff on the island are so warm, welcoming, helpful and always smiling. After staying a week in Bali, we continued our tour to Java, we stayed at the resort which had amazing views of the Borobudur temple, the location is perfect for yoga and meditation and it was Heaven on Earth. We had our personal driver/guide Mr. Rocky. Their staff, Benni, served us all our meals and ensured all our dietary restrictions were met timely. We had a gorgeous romantic dinner for our anniversary one evening, everything was just perfect, candles, a view of the Borobudur temple, french wine, delicious food, and we ended the night by flying a Chinese lantern with our dearest wishes for the next 10 years. While in Java my husband had fallen ill - the hotel staff were amazing as they organized a doctor's visit and ensured they were able to provide medication and food that would suit him. After Java we flew back to Bali for a few extra days before heading home. We stayed at North Bali, it was a "fine black sand beach" with the warmest water I've ever felt. My husband was still recovering, but we were still able to enjoy this perfectly quiet and relaxing location for 2 days. We then moved back to a a fabulous location and an amazing hotel to stay in Seminyak. The general manager and staff were amazing with their service. They were aware of my husband's illness and did everything to accommodate our dietary needs, and any other extras we needed. During our last few days we visited 2 gorgeous locations. We enjoyed an amazing meal of fresh seafood and heavenly cocktails. After our meal we took a car down to the beach, as the resort is set on a cliff. It is a small yet quaint beach, perfect hideaway and luxurious spot for honeymooners. The next day we had a romantic dinner organized for us at the resort with a view of the Tanah Lot Temple. This was an extravagant outdoor setting, we watched the sunset while we dined to a mouthwatering menu, and drank fine wines. I am still in awe of how perfectly amazing this trip was.
From the moment we spoke with Weni on the phone to discuss our initial interest in Bali, to now we are amazed at her professionalism, and how she is able to make the trip completely personalized for her clients. Weni worked with me and my husband to truly understand our needs as couple and individuals to customize all of our experiences. Through out the trip she checked in to ensure everything was going well. Weni was extremely attentive when she heard my husband fell ill. She managed all the staff locally to ensure he received timely and quality medical care to get him better quickly. Besides just the coordination it was the care and time Weni took to ensure we were enjoying our time and were comfortable with all recommendations. Her ground staff in Bali and Java are phenomenal as well. Very attentive, courteous, caring and resourceful. Mr Yerry was guide and driver during our stay in Bali, and Mr. Rocky was our driver in Java. Both men went out of their way to help us when my husband fell ill. Weni and Mr. Yerry both ensured my husband was taken to the best medical facility to ensure he received timely and quality service. Our entire experience with Doyan travel has been A+. Weni went out of her way to accommodate our every wish for this trip, and she truly made it memorable and "a heaven on earth experience" for us. I cannot say or express myself enough to thank her for her service. She's a travel agent with a heart and not just someone after your money. I will highly recommend her to anyone, she definitely is the best travel agent I've ever come across.
Weni and her team were very experienced and helpful in crafting the perfect custom itinerary for my fiancee and I's trip to Bali. The trip truly could not have gone any better. When time permitted, our guide even sneaked in some extra excursions, which made the trip even more exciting. It was as if he knew EVERY nook and cranny on the entire island and we genuinely felt we were in the best hands. In fact, we ecided to change a part of our itinerary on the fly and our guide had no problem making the change and we even made it to the latter part of the day's activities on time!
Our trip was a one of a kind experience that we recommend to anyone who is up for some beautiful sights and a sense of adventure. Make sure you ask for Yerry, because he was great! Bali is definitely an amazing country and our only complaint was that the trip was too short!
Memorable and excellent!
Just returned home from a 8 night/9 day Balinese adventure booked by DoyanTravel and Weni Wang. Overall the trip was incredible, the best vacation we have ever taken. Everything was organized including having our own driver, pre paid meals, spa treatments, hotels, and activities. We really feel as though we saw a large portion of Bali and hit the highlights!!! This trip would not have been as awesome as it was without Weni as she really knows the country and all that it has to offer!!! If your planning a trip to Bali, definitely use DOYANTravel, you won't be disappointed!!!!
Our trip was fantastic. We have travelled to more than seventy countries and used many travel agencies. Doyan is by far the best agency and Weni is certainly the best travel agent. Weni was very thorough and went over in detail exactly what we wanted to see and do. When the plans were complete she again contacted us and went over in detail every aspect of the trip. Our trip went off without a problem and we know that Weni and her assistants attention to detail was the reason. I would recommend Doyan Travel to anyone going into Asia. We only wish they handled other parts of the world. Doyan and Weni are five star all the way.
At our time in Borneo where we visited camp Leakey to see the Orangutans, Weni made arrangements with our guide to get us to the camp very early. We had a full hour with just the two of us and our guide before other people showed up.
We had most amazing experience during our Bali and Central Java Trip. Ms. Weni Wang from Doyan travel arranged our trip. She tailored the trip in minute details based on our preferences and gave us multiple options to do so. Once our itinerary was finalized, she went over every little step to ensure that they are going to be any hurdles along the way. My son's passport had no blank pages left and we expedited the process to add pages (otherwise he would not have been able to enter Indonesia-Thus a big mess was prevented). We also went through the type of electric outlets and the converters we would need.
The selection of hotels was superb. They were all top of the line five star hotels like we wanted with incredible amenities and professional staff. We had full time driver, guide and a car, and the staff bent backward to make sure that we were happy and satisfied. Every so often they would ask, "Anything else we can do for you??" Thanks Mr Jeffrey and Paul. They had a local travel liaison, Melissa, who checked on us from time to time.
Weni had given us a local phone (as a part of service) with phone numbers of all my local contacts and that was very useful. She called us several times during our travel from USA to make sure that everything was going well. One time, we could not take an horse cart ride excursion in Yagyakarta, Java, due to late arrival of our local flight, she immediately talked to local agency to rearrange it the next day early morning so we do not lose that experience. We enjoyed all the parts of the travel as they were carefully crafted to maximize our experience.
We loved Ubud and Yogyakarta the most. Seeing Borobudur and Prambanan Temple would be a lifetime memory for us.
The agency is owned and run by Weni Wang. Weni planned our entire trip after extensive discussions with us about our travel likes and dislikes. We opted for a personal guide for the entire trip. Each hotel Weni selected was a dramatic wonder . My wife loves dancing and Weni provided 6 different events one better than the next. The Tuk tuk dance by the ocean should not be missed. We loved Boborodur, Pranbanan, and the Komodo dragons. The culture and crafts in Bali east and west was fabulous. The guides particularly in Java and Bali were outstanding and the food was always exciting. I had vetted Weni's credentials before the trip and all feedback was totally positive. This was a trip where we felt we had received more than our expectations. We flew through Hong Kong to Densapar going and through Singapore and Tokyo coming back. This seemed to be the most efficient and cost effective route. We visited Singapore for 1 day which seemed just right.You can rely on Weni's hotel and guide selections both of which were outstanding. I would strongly support engaging Weni for travel to Indonesia.
Normally our international travel is done with travel groups but wanting to celebrate our 50th anniversary with a very special experience in Indonesia, I decided to engage the help of a professional to customize a trip for just the two of us. After investigating a number of organizations I selected Weni at Doyan because she was the most responsive to my requests and I am sure glad I did. Weni not only very successfully incorporated every thing that we wanted but suggested some most memorable additions that I would have never thought of. Examples include sunrise at Borobodur and an evening at a monastery with chanting, meditation and a private discussion with one of the monks. Weni told people of the reason for our trip and everywhere we went we found flowers, cakes and other special ways to help us celebrate our anniversary. She arranged for a final dinner that had us watching the sunset behind Tonah Lot while dining from our private table surrounded by water. Drivers and guides were exceptional in every case: knowledgeable, capable, attentive and great fun. The value proposition (cost vs. benefits) for this type of personally guided trip is superior to that of a group tour, in my opinion.
What a wonderful trip from start to finish. Thanks Weni and crew!! Everything went so smoothly and all the people were great and welcoming. We did sense that you were behind the scenes every step of the way to insure that the trip went as planned. All the guides and drivers were great but of course we spent the most time with Yerry and I don’t have to tell you how special he is!! He is truly our new friend as we related to him freely. Many thanks as we have to go now to LA from Seoul so more later.
Fondly Alan and Cheri
My wife and I are very happy that we went with DOYANTravel to organize our honeymoon trip to Bali. Weni was there every step of the way, from catering the trip to exactly what we wanted to experience (a good mix of relaxation along with exploring the sites and culture of Bali), providing amazing accommodations, and organizing an extremely knowledgeable driver to guide us throughout trip. Hand down, this is the best trip my wife and I have ever experienced. While there were threats of earthquakes in other areas of Indonesia (Sumatra, which we now know is quite a distance from Bali), Weni was very reassuring and urged us to still take the trip, and we are so happy that we did. No question went unanswered, and she even called us during the trip to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Additionally, my wife and I are vegetarian, and she made sure that we had vegetarian meals planned throughout our stay. We booked our trip last minute, but Weni made sure that we experienced everything that we wanted to.
The temples (Uluwatu, Besakih, and Tanah Lot) were impressive. Snorkeling at Menjangan Island, hiking up Mt. Batur to see the sunrise, experiencing the Kecak dance at the Uluwatu Temple, and strolling through the streets of Ubud and Seminyak were unforgettable. It was the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration.
With sincerest appreciation, thank you for all that you did to make our trip to Bali and Borobudur (Yogyakarta) so enjoyable. From the hotels to the guides, we could not have been taken care of better.
One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Borneo was being greeted by the orangutans in the wild jungle. Well-organised by DOYANTravel, our journey was led by excellent and knowledgeable local guide. Be prepared for a real wild rain forest experience when travel to Borneo. It's advised to work with reliable travel company. DOYANTravel is one of very few travel companies based in the US that's knowledgeable about Indonesia. Highly recommended.
Doyan Travel is an excellent travel company to work with when planning a trip to Bali, Indonesia. Weni Wang, the owner of Doyan Travel, is a miracle worker! She's very thorough and has great follow-up skills. If you mention Doyan Travel anywhere in Bali, trust me, you will be treated like royalty.
Yerry the tour guide carries a tremendous amount of wisdom and is highly knowledgeable about the Indonesian/Balinese land, culture, and its people. Yerry is a very proud Indonesian! Don't let his tough exterior fool ya...Yerry is a gentle man with a kind heart. He's also an amazing driver! Be aware that driving in Indonesia is not for the faint-hearted! Overtaking is an art on the main streets and back roads of Bali.
The most enlightening part of the journey was visiting the Green School of Bali. If you would like to experience the future of education, today, a visit to the Green School is a must! Learning about sustainability and seeing an institution gradually becoming grid-free was highly inspiring.
I am long overdue in writing this review. However, please don't let the duration of time that elapsed from my trip that Weni so artfully crafted for me fool you. It has been the best vacation that I have experienced in my adult life. I have been to several countries and this one is the one that will always remain dearest and the most special to me. Weni was the most kind hearted person you will ever hope to meet. She has genuine pride in her country and so passionately takes your thoughts, ideas and dreams and makes them a reality. Put all of those things in the back drop of a breathtaking country and history is made! My memories still remain the most vibrant as the day that my eyes drank in all of the splendor on the days that I experienced all that Bali has to offer. I cannot speak any more highly of Weni, her company and her driver, Yerry, who over the course of my 2 week vacation to Bali became my friend. Additionally, Weni made a special arrangement for her and I to meet as I was traveling solo. She made reservations at Ayana resort where she treated me to a wonderful dinner and then we moved our conversation to the rock bottom bar that sat atop a stunning cliff overlooking the ocean. The beauty of the temples that I visited as well as the overall charm of the people and the culture there was quite humbling. The snorkeling that she arranged for me was also more impressive that when I was in Australia and visited the Great Barrier Reef. There is so much to do and if you put your trust in Doyan travel you will surely not be disappointed. From the moment of correspondence, I felt cared for and was given knowledgeable and accurate information in a very timely manner. I put my trip together in 2 weeks and Weni was the person who made it all happen. My needs were taken care of right away and from the second that I stepped foot into Indonesian soil where I was greeted by Yerry to the very last day when he walked me to the last point he could escort me at the airport on the day of my departure I was always in good hands. Please contact Doyan Travel if you are looking for exceptional service and a trip of a lifetime!
I have nothing to say about DOYANTravel and Weni. I have used travel agents before, but typically have planned my own way when traveling. I had planned our entire honeymoon to Philippines, but we were not able to travel there any longer, as several of our destinations were in the path of Typhoon Haiyan. Luckily, we were able to switch our flights to go to Bali, instead of Manila, from Seoul. Since we only had 5 days before we left, we decided that it was best to use a travel agent as we had no time to do any research for Bali. We found Weni through the Yale Alumni Travel, and am so glad that we did! Weni was able to arrange a perfect honeymoon for us, on the Thursday before the Monday morning when we were leaving (and with a half-day time difference!). Not only that, but she crafted an itinerary that was perfect for us, as she included a variety of different activities including diving, which was our main objective for the trip, as well as going to Komodo. I would never have selected some of the places she did for us (Menjangen- incredible), but it was exactly what were looking for. Weni also communicated to all of the hotels that we were on our honeymoon, and received a little gift from each place (including a guitar and dance serenade, cakes, wooden boxes, etc). One of those little touches that makes everything perfect. The quality of the hotels she selected was impeccable as well.
One of the highlights of our trips was our driver guide, Yerry. I cannot express how wonderful this man is. He discussed with us every question which we asked him, and came to learn a good deal about Balinese and Indonesian culture through him. His knowledge is incredible, and his English is too! He was a safe driver, knew all of the different and most efficient routes around the island, was reliable and timely, and always knew the best places to stop. It was a delight to get to know him. We also appreciated how we were provided with a cell, which we could use to contact him.
I wish all of my interactions with travel agencies have been this wonderful!
I am glad Weny recommended going to Yogjakarta as we loved seeing both the Hindu and Buddhist temples. Our trip to Bali and Yogyakarta was absolutely great. We had excellent driver guides. The hotel choices were exactly what we were looking for, and the whole trip went very smoothly. Weni was very responsive and took care of every detail to perfection. Please recommend her company to anyone asking for advice. We would use Weni's services again without any hesitation!
My wife & I chose DOYANTravel to arrange our honeymoon to Bali & boy were we glad we did. We had no stress and had a great time. Importantly we got a great value for the money. Thanks! FIVE STARS!

Weni from DoyanTravel was amazing. She put together a tailored trip accommodating all of our broad requests. She has great relationships with local vendors and guides who treated us really well. Weni was great about checking in with us during the trip and even adjusted the itinerary during the trip to accommodate our requests. Most impressively Weni quickly reacted to flight cancellations and made sure that we were taken care of on the next available flights without us having to worry about anything. We really recommend using DoyanTravel.
Weni put a great itinerary together for us. We really loved the boat ride down the river ways in Borneo and visiting camp Leakey. Also our guide in Bali, Oka, was great and just driving through Bali or walking through a rice field with him was awesome.
If we could take the trip again, we would spend more time.
Want first class and the very best when planning your dream trip to Bali? Talk to Doyantravel first and you are on the way to a new world of quality and service. When we started planning our trip to Bali to piggy back on our dive trip to Wakatobi, we found the planning to be over whelming. We contacted Weni after a friend suggested we should find help. Weni talked to us to determine the things we wanted to do especially around Ubud. She helped arrange the air travel, had a driver and he was the tour guide for our travels as well. She planned an itinerary to keep us busy for the entire 13 day trip. The two hotels were we stayed, the Royal Pita Maha and Ayana, were the best two places I have ever stayed. At the Royal Pita Maha we had our private swimming pool and a bed fit for three kings. We went to a Bali dance and watched the sunset at Pura Luhur Uluwatu and the Barong dance, museums (Bali Shell Museum, Wood Carving and Mask Museum, and Art Museums in Ubud plus some shopping at the markets), carving studios , jewelry studios and Hindu temples in Nusa Dua, Tampaksiring to see Besakih temple and holy spring water, etc . We climbed a volcano in Kintamani and rode bikes from the base of the volcano to the elephant park where we rode an elephant. We dined at many Indonesian Restaurant: some in Ubud, one in a rice field, several on the coast and a few at the hotels. Our guide told us about Bali traditions associated with the Hindu religion. When we returned from 12 days of diving, Weni arranged a two and half hour massage for two at the Spa at the SAMAYA followed by a sea food dinner at the beach. Then it was time to say goodbye and head to South Korean followed by the last leg of our journey to the States.
Thanks so much for making our first trip to Bali and Java fantastic! The accommodations you selected for us were spectacular - we felt like royalty! The meals you planned, especially for “romantic dinner” was wonderful.
We saw almost everything we wanted according to our very ambitious schedule and loved it. Thanks for figuring out how we could fit it all in. The only thing we would change is to stay a few more days and just do nothing but enjoy being there. (Knowing me I would figure out some place we had to go to, though- or some more shopping we needed to do.)
Thanks again for making the trip a very memorable one and for being flexible when we needed it. Your communication with us while we were there was excellent.
All the best! Suzi and David
