“Excellent!! You must stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is a must see! We stayed in June for only 2 nights 2 adults and 2 children in a family villa deluxe with our own private plunge pool. The villa was amazing! Kids had their own bedroom and bathroom we had a ginormous bathroom and king size bed. Views were absolutely fantastic! The lush green forest surrounding us, no noise just birds and animals in the trees. Service is excellent, nothing was any trouble. Food menu is limited but what is available is delicious! Breakfast was very good too. Our room was very clean and serviced daily as soon as we went to breakfast each morning. The resort was full but we never saw more than a few people at a time. A fair way from anything but you just get the shuttle bus to town which is super easy. If you want to getaway from it all then this is the place to do it. Perfect for honeymooners or couples retreat. We really regretted not booking for longer. Will definitely return absolutely loved it. Highly recommend!

Booked two bedroom unit, AUD$280/night. Main B/room door lock flew apart on first opening, wardrobe doors fell off hitting guest in face. 4 people, 2 miss matched cups the only items supplied in Kitchen, had to make 3 request for toilet paper, breakfast cold & UN-eatable. Second night it rain and the roof leaked all over the bed in the main bedroom. Water system gets serviced about 0745 every morning so if you are half way thru shower.....STIFF.
A disgraceful facility that badly needs lots of maintenance and training for staff.

Sit on chair, enjoy a cup of coffee and beautiful panoramic view is make me happy today. So I decide to make a review about this villa. Of course, serene and natural. Identically with their name, "Natura". The view is stunning, overlooking a river (I don't know what its name) valley. There is a free shuttle service to Ubud center (just a few minutes from here). The employees are friendly. However, you have to be careful when stepping. The path was made from wood and I think it's easily damaged by humidity.

Room Tip: Choose villa 11 or 12. They have the best view.

We booked into this hotel for 5 nights and left after two nights. We have been coming to Bali every year for the past 32 years and on this occasion travelled with friends who were visiting Bali for the first time.
The resort is in a beautiful jungle setting but the rooms are in urgent need of renovation which was evident from the minute we entered into our two room villa with its own jacuzzi.
Our friends took the main bedroom and immediately had to have the lock repaired to the door as it was not operational. On our second day the door to the wardrobe of the second bedroom fell off hitting my wife in the face. Unfortunately the door could not be replaced as the frame had rotted and it and another door being held on by a piece of wire were removed.
Our breakfast on the first morning was stone cold (tiny piece of bacon, sausage and tomato) but the eggs were warm. We asked on numerous occasions for pool towels for use for the private jacuzzi but were advised just to use the bath towels provided. In the end we had to walk down to the pool and brought the towels up from there to use.
On two occasions whilst showering in the morning the water was turned off and we had to walk down to reception to get them to turn it back on.
The final straw came on the second night when it rained heavily and the main bedroom roof leaked so badly it saturated the bed and pillows making it unsuitable to sleep on. When we called Reception we were told that the Manager would be in at 9.0 am the following morning and to speak with her. Hardly the answer our friends were expecting.
We cannot understand how Tripadvisor has given this resort a four star rating for 2012 (Certificate displayed on wall leading to foyer) when it is clear that the resort is in dire need of renovation.
This is not a cheap Bali resort and we expected much more than what was received. We are mature travellers and have travelled all over the world as have our friends and this would rate as our worst experience ever in a hotel.
This would be a great place to stay as the setting is stunning BUT the Owner needs to spend some money to bring it back up to the standard befitting a four star rating.

Warmest greetings from Natura resort and spa!

Dear traveller 7166,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Natura resort and spa to accommodate your holiday in Bali and taking time to write on Trip advisor.

We regret that your not completely satisfied staying with us, please accept our sincere apology for any conveniences caused, we take all your points seriously although some comments are slightly exaggerated. We would have been glad to change your cold bacon if asked. Thanks the fresh juice, coffee, eggs, pastries were to your liking. On the roof leak we acknowledge it after a severe rain over Ubud that night, it was fixed the following morning. To be mentioned, that we have agreed to refund you the 3 remaining nights and that the villa you rented was for a family (parents/children) and not 2 adult couples.

However, we have noted all your points you mention on your review for our feedback and improvement.
Thank you

Best regards,
Hotel management

Positive aspects: Bungalow terraces overlooking a gorgeous jungle canopy; great infinity-pool; cool geckos in and outside of the rooms (i miss my forest gecko that was in our room: he was sooo cute); good room-cleaning-team and front-desk-Crew; free wi-fi; good free shuttle service (the hotel is in a village outside Ubud).
Negative aspects: A lot of dirt (even cockroaches) falling down from the ceiling of the traditionally built houses; the frontside terrace-door and bathroom window didn't close well permitting insects to come in; the shower and one of the cold-water-tabs wasn't working properly; the staff at the restaurant was friendly, but lazy (nobody of the staff ever came to ask if we wanted a drink while we were down by the pool, even though there sometimes were about 6 people hanging around there) and they pretended to understand english (they asked a lot of questions and started lengthy discussions for nothing - in general the male staff members seemed to have a better school education than the female staff members, except for lady from the management, who was very competent); lousy choice of television channels; bad massages (the massage was painful and the towels they used were stinking so much i had to shower and wash my hair thoroughly afterwards); the air conditiong was down by the floor, so the air was stuffy in the evening (cold air staying on the floor and the hot air hovering above it); the price of 180 USD is totally exagerated, if you think of the low salaries of the employees in Bali. 120 USD would have been a fair Price (140 USD maybe, but not more).

My hubby and I stayed for 2 nights, which for us was long enough! It is a gorgeous small resort, food is exceptional especially the breakfast! Staff are friendly. The views are amazing! It's a 10 min free shuttle into ubud. Not much happens in the resort tho, it'd be great for honeymooners or couples that just want to do nothing!!
