Had a fabulous time in Kubu Bali. The Deluxe rooms were spacious, beautiful and had a unobstructed view of the sea (Rm 107) The ground were lush and beautiful I could also hear the sound of the surf which lulled me to sleep every night. I would strongly recommend this hotel to people who are going back to nature and... More

As someone wrote in 2009, Kubu Bali has seen better days - Still a beautiful setting, but the whole place needs to be maintained. The bungalows, the garden, the pool - The staff is friendly and helpful, but seems to have given up. There are no guests - only two bungalows were booked, when we were there, so the hotels... More

We paid $65 per room all inclusive in August high season. Good value but with some reservations. Positives: Gorgeously landscaped grounds, built into the side of a steep hill. Bungalows are well spaced out, lovely swimming pool, fish ponds,shrubs. Deluxe bungalows higher up the slope have views to the sea. All bungalows have verandas and reasonably spacious Good location for... More

Kubu Bali features beautiful grounds and some seclusion away from the busy thoroughfare in Candidasa. However, this property is showing some age and seems poorly managed. Most of the lighting in our room did not work, the bed smelled musty, and the pool needed more than a good skimming. We did enjoy the setting and had fun playing badminton on... More

I stayed in Room 111 where their Home page photo was taken (that the hotel staff told me). The ocean view was beautiful, just you need to clime145 stars to get this room. This hotel set in the Nature so if you like a Boutique hotel, go somewhere else. There are many 'monkeys' around, therefore you should not leave anything... More

Kubu gets a really positive review in the Rough Guide stating that it comparable with Tegal Sari in Ubud - where we were previously and had a great stay - so were looking forward to our one night there. It was awful. The room was filthy - moth-eaten curtains, insect nests in the mosquito net, shabby towels, dirty light switches;... More

Fantastic hotel, (you can get much better up the road at Alila Manggis but then you're going to be paying through the nose) - this is cheap and doesn't compromise on much. The rooms are large, clean, staff lay little flowers on the bed daily in patterns! Most rooms are up your own little set of steps, and have massage... More

We've stayed at this hotel three times and have already booked for next summer. It's a great place to relax and just do nothing for a few days. The gardens are VERY beautiful. The rooms (bungalows) are spacious and comfortable and the private terraces all have great views. The pool area is great, also with a great view. The people... More
