This bed and breakfast is ideal for anyone interested in enjoying a relaxing vacation while exploring the rich cultural heart of Bali. The location overlooking rice fields is convenient to Ubud yet removed from the island's touristic chaos. The rooms and facilities are decorated with exquisite taste, meals are a celebration of Balinese cuisine with a sophisticated international touch and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. The team is always happy to see that a stay becomes a memorable moment. However.... i can see that there are only 4 green lights on 5 for cleanliness. it is a signal that tells us to do better and better. Even if sometimes it is difficult, in the middle of nature, with... More

Excellent B&B in a quiet location just a half hour from Ubud and still an easy 60+ minute drive to Seminyak and beaches. Lovely innkeepers and staff, excellent breakfast as well as evening dining. We won't be looking for a different place to stay on our next trip to Bali.

This was our second visit to Bali and we decided to go back to Balam Bali Villas because we loved it so much the first time around..

We stayed at Balam Bali Villa for our first 3 nights of a 14 night trip and regret not spending more time there. I had high expectations after the elogious reviews on Tripadvisor, but in fact our experience, although brief, surpassed all expectations. The contrast between the previous evening's drive from the airport through thronging, congested Denpasar and the tranquil... More

There are not enough superlatives about this villa. The experience was simply amazing.

It is a perfect place for a family or a couple. Our guest house organises several excursions to discover the inland (volcanoes, amazing rice fields, temples, lakes, and local villages).
