“Bidadari has the "Wow" Factor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 8 days at Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat in November 2012. We had not been to Bali before and decided on staying in Ubud for rest and relaxation. We could not have chosen better accommodation, the villa was very clean and modern in the Balinese style. The bed was very comfortable and linen, towels, etc. changed daily. The bedroom was air-conditioned to enable a very good nights sleep. The views from all villas was just majestic, always something to look at - thundery sky, birds, squirrels, geckos, etc. We particularly liked showering in the open air and having a toilet with a gorgeous view! The villa had 2 levels with the living area upstairs. You were able to have meals in this area or downstairs by the pool, totally your choice. We did try out the "Spa" menu with both of us utilising our free Balinese massage. This massage lead to quite a few more - the spa staff were extremely friendly and great at their jobs! At the end of the massage you were presented with ginger tea and fruit. (they make a mean ginger tea, definitely recommend) Food menu was sufficient, we stayed in a number of nights and enjoyed quite a few dishes, can recommend the Nasi Goreng - it was hard to go past. Meals were always presented beautifully and on time, could not fault the service. We actually booked a cooking lesson (held in the Villa) and really enjoyed learning alongside the chef and his assistant. We were then served the 3 course meal in fine style. Other activities we took part in were trekking and bike riding which were a great way to see the village and learn about the Balinese culture. Lastly, the staff, our thanks go out to Rana (Manager) for looking after us so, so well. Rana loves his job and it shows! He has a great team at his disposal and they all work together as one. All the staff we met took great pride in their jobs, and we found this very refreshing. Being in a strange country can at times present problems and I required medical attention whilst there. Rana took us under his wing and personally saw that I got to the doctors and was taken care of. This was extremely reassuring and comforting. All of the staff were extremely attentive and genuinely concerned. I loved the extra attention from the spa staff! The staff were very friendly and we had a lot of laughs, they could not do enough for you. Trips into Ubud were made very easy with a driver being available on call and when you need to return you simply need to place a call on the mobile provided for your stay and usually a driver is there within 15 mins - excellent service! Rana was very happy to hear of any suggestions that could make Bidadari even better and we did provide him with a couple which he acted upon immediately. We already miss our gorgeous breakfast (3 course) being served on the terrace by the wonderful Arik! Thank you to John and Jackie for your hospitality and birthday surprise, Eka (and her team), Arik, Punia (our driver), Rana and all of his great staff for our truly wonderful stay. We will come back and have already recommended others to Bidadari. We think you are all wonderful, Regards Jenny and Phillip Barlow

Room Tip: There are a lot of steps at Bidadari, so if this is a concern ask for a villa near the top. We stay...

Bidadari in Ubud is like a little piece of heaven in earth! Not only a lovely place to stay but the greatest service ever!! In our case the hotel was fully booked but honouring our reservation, they rented a private villa for us. We were pampered and taken care off, all our requests were adressed and fulfilled, always with a bright smile.Our week passed too soon and all felt so easy. This was a luxurious week in UBUD. I travel frequently and can describe my stay at Bidadari as one of my best experiences ever.
Bidadari's manager Mr. Nyoman Rana is one of a kind, there is no problem he will not fix for you.He arranged not only for a late check out, but also kept our luggage and allowed us to shower before we left for the airport at 8 pm, this allowed us to fully enjoy up to out last minutes in UBUD (also much appreciated before a 7 hours flight). There are many good options in Ubud, we checked! but Bidadari still was the best option not only considering quality but Value for Money.Great for honey mooners but also great for families.

Room Tip: If you go for your honey moon they have really amasing surprises and superb little private villas wi...

My wife and I just spent four nights here as part of our honeymoon. It was a beautiful place to stay.

Rana and his team made us feel so welcome and never stopped thinking about how to improve our stay (even to the extent that Rana invited me along with him on his daily exercise bike ride through ubud and the surrounding villages when he could see I was a keen cyclist! Just on that topic, there is no better place to ride in Bali that I have seen than the area around Bidadari. Beautiful rice terraces, multiple rural villages, and so many friendy Balinese people waving to you as you go by).

The villa itself (we stayed in Tanjung) was stunning. Romantic four poster bed, beautiful spring water infinity pool, views down the Wos River Valley and the most amazing indoor/outdoor bathroom (with the highight being the fish pond and rock carvings that surrounded the room).

Some of the reviews below point out the other great features of the place - such as the nokia phone that they give you so you can call the front desk and organise a pick up from ubud at anytime.

The included breakfasts which are delivered to your villa are opulent and really tasty. The spa which is at the bottom of the valley is like another world. Great massage (though if you are budget conscious get a package which includes this as part of it, as the spa prices are on the higher side for ubud we thought).

Overall, we had a tremendous stay and cant speak highly enough of the Bidadari.

Room Tip: If you dont like walking up steep sets of stairs, ask for a villla near the top, such as Tanjung.

Apologies for this late review.

We stayed at Bidadari Villas in Ubud in October 2012 for 4 nights. The staff were ALL lovely and the accommodation was beautiful.

We had a couple of nights in two different villas and both were just lovely.

The steps could be a little steep for some people down to the villas.

The food was very nice when we ate there too.

Bedding is clean and comfortable.

Outlook is great.

Furnishings etc are all attractive.

The shuttle bus is on a timetable, but you can still be accommodated out of that schedule.

There are so many positive points to this property that it would take to long to list them all! We would certainly recommend Bidadari to anyone, and hope to visit again.

Thankyou to everyone at Bidadari who helped make our stay special.
Best regards, Matt and Aysha

Room Tip: Any villa at all, they're all nice.

My partner and I stayed at the villas and it was the most amazing place to stay. The staff there were so helpful and accommodating, from the moment we got to the villa to the minute we left they made sure everything we needed we had and were happy!
The villa itself was amazing, the pictures on the website do not do the villa's justice. The villas were all full when we were there but we did not notice anyone else at the villas.
We went on a two hour bike ride which was offered as a part of the package and would recommend that anyone going take the ride, the guide was amazing, taking us through the rice fields, along the rivers and through the town.
I would highly recommend this villa to everyone I know to stay here even for one night, the villa was everything we were expecting and more.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa Pusuk and it was amazing but could see that they all had amazing views.

Hi Jordan H
We loved reading your review, we are really glad you enjoyed everything and yes we all agree the bike ride around the rice paddies and through the village is a must do . Its great now we have our own bikes we can maintain them and keep them safe for all our guests to use when wanting to see the villages, rice paddies and local people going about their daily work , there is always plenty to do and see in Ubud . A big thank you for your feedback on Trip Advisor we really appreciate it .

Our stay at Bididari was gorgeous from start to end and beyond our dreams. In fact, it is so good we didn't know if we should mention it on here or keep it to ourselves! It is without doubt one of the best places I have ever stayed in my life and as the secret is out it will no doubt be booked all year :)

great staff, amazing location. If you want some private time, some luxury and a bit of care for the soul then come here. It couldn't have been better and we didn't want to leave

the spa is the total icing on the cake by the way....

PS- Excellent for couples of whatever persuasion!

Room Tip: all good - each villa looks amazing but you have to be comfortable with lots of stairs

My wife and I stayed at Bidadari for 3 nights to celebrate a very long overdue honeymoon. It didn't take more than the initial greeting and walkthrough of our villa to understand why this retreat is regarded to highly.

The staff, led by Mr. Rana are tremendous... you really feel like royalty. The villas are beautiful and exceedingly private giving us the romantic getaway we were looking for. Scenery is stunning, food delicious, and spa overly relaxing. The shuttle service to/from Ubud at any time is very convenient. Heck.. they even give you a cell phone to call for the return ride back. They really have thought of everything you could ever want on vacation.

We stayed in villa Pucuk and loved it! They were renovating the villa next to us and just to ensure we weren't disturbed, Mr. Rana planned the construction to only occur whilst we were away from the villa and the moment we returned, he told the workers to stop. How's that for making you feel special!

Ubud is a fantastic city to visit and this retreat is at the top of the list in terms of places to stay. We will definitely make sure we include another stay during our next trip to Bali. Bravo!

Room Tip: If you don't want to climb the stairs, Villa Tunjung and Villa Melati are near the top of the st...
