We stayed here in May 2014 as a part of our honeymoon. We enjoyed every second. The location is fantastic. We loved the atmosphere and wouldn't change a thing in this place. Time passes and we really miss Bali..Really hope to come back someday!

We stayed 4 nights. The villa itself is SO beautiful, great mix of vintage and Asian influenced objects d'art etc. Lovely open air salon type part that has a day bed for relaxing and a table with gorgeous cane chairs for eating at etc. The location is just amazing, you have a view to lush rice paddies and the mountain...

We have been in Bali Jiwa Villa for 12 days and it was gorgeous. We enjoyed every minute, hearing the concert of frogs (one even lived just up the door to the villa and went for a walk every evening - we loved watching it), the wind in the ricefield and the singing from a distant temple, seeing the morning...

I have been Bali twice and Jiwa Villas is the best, best view, quiet and really friendly staffs, and it's not far to the center of Ubud. Yummy dinner, and breakfast. Just one thing is not perfect, there is one fruit tree with many ripe fruits. It dropped to the ground few times which was a bit scared. Anyway, we... More

Dear Mimi, thank you very much for your nice review. We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed staying with us. So sorry the fruit tree was bothering you. It is actually on the land of our neighbor (not our land), but its branches are hanging over our property. But I have good news: Our neighbor will reap the... More

Jiwa Villa offered perfect settings for a getaway. Me and my fiancée spent 6 days at the villa. The staff was very professional, kind and helpful. Everything is harmoniously designed: the infinity pool with the panoramic view over the rice fields, jungle and mountains, is the visual focus of the western side of the villa. On the opposite side, an... More

I had stayed 3 nights there as part of Bali trip, the other 9 nights I stayed at higher category properties, but nothing can surpass the experience of being yourself awaking up with a chain of mountains in the distance, the temple flowers drifting on the water, by night the fireflies dance in the air, the tree frogs sing its...

Beautiful and comfortable villa with very personalised service. Perfect starting point for long promenades in the country side. I had my high quality sound recorder, and I brought back birdsongs, frogs, peasants at work, prayers. Wake up early or keep going after sunset. You cannot miss the evening frog songs, followed by a wonderful ballet of fireflies which are eceptionally... More

We stayed at Bali Jiwa Villa for four nights at the beginning of September (2 adults and one 5 year old) and it was a perfect retreat and immersion into the wonderful nature of Bali.

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at Villa Jiwa in July 2013. First of all, it seems much has been written about the remote location. For us, the remoteness of the villa made our stay! It was great not to see any other tourists in the direct area, especially now that Ubud seems to be overcrowded with tourists, both... More
