“Paridise Found! Book it now!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the magical location for 3 days while in Bali and was completely blown away. The locale is set on the side of a cliff with each pool villa surrounded by lush greenery. We couldn't see another unit from our balcony or pool area. You feel like you are the only one there. The staff is the best that I've ever seen. They are happy and willing to do anything to ensure an amazing stay. We booked through thier webite because they had the best package. It included breakfast daily, fruit in room, afternoon tea, it also came with 2 60 min massages and a bicycle tour thought town. They also include a driver into town and a cell phone to use to be picked up complimentary. It was a great touch. We spoke to the manager about not particularly liking the covering on the massage table and he thank us for the feed back made an immediate phone call and said they would be now using better quality linens so this would not happen in the future. It's really amazing to see people interested in your ideas an comments and react to them in such a thankful and prompt way. If you are lucky enough to get to Ubud and are looking for the ultimate Honeymoon type locale. Look no further and book this spot today!

I can only hope to get back to this beautiful spot some day!

Hi mattfales

Thank you for your great review, we really enjoyed having you stay and loved hearing that "our staff are the best you have ever seen" it means a lot to us all......the feedback we get from our guests really points us in the right direction and we really appreciate it .....Thanks for the heads up re massage bed covers...we do use disposable sheets but because everyone is different we can offer a choice of cotton sheets if our guests prefer..we are having them made at the moment.

Thanks again for your review and your kind suggestions..we really hope to see you back again soon

Best wishes and warm regards Rana and the family at Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat- Ubud

Wow, such an amazing property! We were lucky enough to stay in two of the villas, and both were equally amazing in their own ways. The pools with their gorgeous outlooks over the palms, vines and greenery of the Ubud forestry, and the traditional villas with their carvings and water features made our stay very peaceful and relaxing.

Upon arrival, our host Rana and the entire staff all met us, which was a great way to start our stay. Our staff were all very friendly and accommodating - it felt like we were the only ones there.

We had a meal & massage included in our package + free shuttles into and from Ubud township made it so easy to enjoy ourselves. It really was a wonderful place to stay.

Bidadari's own spa at the bottom of the propery near the river was a great experience in its own right!

We have spent two weeks in Bali and we decided from the begining to stay the two weeks in Ubud (travelling around from this place) to avoid packing and de-packing all the time. We remained at the Bidadari during the two weeks and we seriously don't regret our choice at all. The villas are extremely charming (extremely clean, comfortable, decorated with good taste - tipycal Balinese designed and deorated). The staff is very friendly and helpfull, and the food provided in general (not only for Breakfast and Tea-time) is "rafinee" (local food turned modern with great sence of presentation).
My husband decided to book there after reading the good comments on TripAdvisor, while I wanted to go to the Maya Resort or Four Seasons, I'm finally glad I did not insist as I don't think we could have been better treated and welcome (as the Bidadari is quite small, it is a bit more intime and romantic than big complexes of 200 rooms...)
The land on which are built the villas is a bit like a "jungle", with big trees, a river at the bottom of the valley, and lots of animals around. The fact they did not try to domesticate that much the surrounding nature is, for me, a very positive point, as it gives the impression to be in the middle of nowhere, while you're 10 mins away from Ubud by car.
After having travelled on many paradisiac islands all over the world, and having slept in the most pretigious hotels, I think the Bidadari will remain in my top 3, as I don't consider it expensive given the excellent level of prestation they offer (compared to "big brands" hotels).

Hi Champipeluche
Firstly we would really like to thank you for entrusting us with your whole two week stay ...it is a hard decision between the top brand hotels and the smaller, lesser known, boutique accommodation, so thank you for choosing us ......we enjoyed meeting you both and getting to know you and loved hearing you enjoyed your stay and appreciated our team of smiling caring people.
We care very much for our environment in the Ubud Valley and have integrated our Villas into the gardens and have kept as much of the natural original landscape as we could and we love to hear that you enjoyed the whole experience and you put us in your " top 3 "
We are forever at your service and please come back to see us again.
Warm Regards Rana and the family at Bidadari Private Villas and Retreat -Ubud

When we walked into our three story villa we could not believe our eyes. Bidadari is a little piece of heaven. Service is 5 stars. Rana and his staff were amazing. You have a choice of several breakfast choices and juices all delivered to your private villa. We also enjoyed tea in the afternoon and a delightful dinner. We stayed for 4 nights and Bidadari was our favorite Villa in Bali. My daughter and I used the spa for treatment and wished we had booked more treatments, so peaceful. Each time we returned to the villa at the end of the day...the staff were there to great us with a smile. They booked a flight for my husband and also Gilly Cat for our trip to Lombok. They even sent us on our way with a lovely basket/snack for our trip. We had private driver take us on several day trips. He was professional and delightful to around. I could go on and on about our stay at Bidadari, you have to see for yourself. Rani and his hardworking staff spoiled us....and we loved it. Thank you Bidadari!!!!

WOW! My friends and I recently stayed at Bidadari in their two bedroom pool villa called Kenyeri. Positioned in the middle of a beautiful rainforest, the views from this villa alone are reason enough to go. In addition to the views though, every aspect of our stay here was beyond exceptional.

The villa we stayed in was a beautiful three story villa that had its own private infinity pool. Everything was in excellent condition and extremely well maintained. Bidadari has its own Spa as well which I highly recommend going to. The spa treatments we had here were better than any we’d ever experienced. The same can be said about the food as well. Breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner – all of the food we had was amazing, as were the cocktails.

What has left the biggest impression on me though is the customer service we received from all of the staff and Rana the Manager. It was impeccable. Everyone was so friendly and attentive and they really made us feel like Bidadari was our home while we were there. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone that works at Bidadari and they are so deserving of their number 1 ranking on TripAdvisor.

If you are going to Bali, you cannot go without staying at Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat. You will not be disappointed. It is an experience that I will never forget and one that I will make another trip to Ubud for just to have again.

To all of the Bidadari staff and Rana, thank you so much for providing the best end to our holiday in Bali that we could have ever hoped for. You are all such beautiful people and I hope to see you again in the future!

This review is going to sound completely over the top, but I can assure you it reflects our true feelings. We have experienced accommodation all around the world and Bidadari must be the best we've ever had. When we were taken to our villa, we couldn't stop laughing at what we'd stumbled across: a haven in the valley! The staff had already made us feel like royalty on arrival, but the villa was just incredible. With all the trimmings of private massages and 3-course dinner, daily breaky and afternoon tea, it couldn't be a more romantic getaway. Every corner of the villa is authentic, classy and luxurious. We can highly recommend Jepun Villa, but doubt that any of the villas would be less than amazing.

Thank you to Rana and the team, we miss you already. WE WILL BE BACK!

What more can you say about Bidadari – the magnificent location, high quality spa, friendly and attentive staff, luxurious private villas, incredible food – this amazing property speaks for itself! Rana and his staff should be suitably proud of achieving the number one spot on Trip Advisor, a rating which is totally deserved. The property is in a secluded and serene location amongst rice terraces and jungle but still only a pleasant 25-30 min walk into the town centre, a great opportunity for some amazing photos and then the luxury of a courtesy car for your return trip. Special mention to staff members Dodik and to the ever smiling Arik (and his exceptional cocktails!), plus the young trainee, who made our recent stay in Villa Pucuk at Bidadari one of the most memorable of our many travel experiences worldwide. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit this remarkable property do not miss out, as many have said before us we can honestly say the only bad thing about Bidadari is having to leave!
