“Wonderful stay in beautiful villas in a quiet location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed there 4 nights for the Christmas break as a family and had a wonderful time.
The villas are beautiful, large, the resort is very well attended for, the service is great and the staff very caring. Would stay there again if returning to Ubud.

My wife and I stayed at nefatari in February for 6 nights. We loved our stay and loved ubud. We got picked up in seminyak by nefatari staff. Great welcome and quick trip to ubud. If you don't already know, ubud is amazing!! Rural, filled with top class dining joints, much quieter, and quainter than on the water.

PROS:
- we loved our large private pool!
- breakfast as said by other reviewers were amazing. Banana pancakes every morning! And delivered right to our villa
- staff was very friendly throughout.
- while a shuttle is needed to get to town, it's a quick trip and you are never waiting more than 15 mins to get picked up
- definitely would stay again!!! And WILL be back to ubud! (Go on the bike baik tour!!)

TO NOTE: not negative - but maybe interesting to know.
- there are bugs in and around the villa (like in your backyard at home)
- use of the Mosquito net is probably advised
- the bathroom is 'outside' but the quality of shower etc is top notch

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

This is just amazing - the picked us up right on time from Kuta, then they told us that they are upgrading us to a 2 bedroom pool villa as one bedroom pool villa was unavailable. The Check in was a breeze. Everyone is very courteous. The Villa was just amazing, the room, the bathroom, the pool and the deck chairs everything was just top notch. It was a full service villa, we had breakfast at the resturant and once in our villa and we had complimentary tea service in our villa.

Ubud is a little remote so they have a free on demand shuttle to and fro from Ubud so whenever we felt like going out we just did and on one call they came to pick us up.

This is the best value villa and is highly recommended.

I would recommend everyone on their honeymoon to take atleast two nights here in this villa and just relax.

We stayed in the large Villa (2 rooms) with our family of 4. A spacious 2 room house with 2 outside bathrooms and a private pool. What a great place, very relaxed, quiet what a great place to relax and adjust to the time difference... Breakfast and tea/coffee can be served in your villa. The drivers will take you anywhere you want to go in and around Ubud. They pick you up from town when you want.
Friendly balinese staff, from drivers to the reception.
There are obviously also some downsides to Neftari, which are in no comparison to the upsides, but have to be mentioned for a complete picture.
It is a bit outside of Ubud, you can not walk there, also you mis the view because of the walls around the complex, which gives a high level of privacy, but in return makes you mis out on the great rice paddy views!
All in all great place!

We stayed in a private villa with our own in-ground pool. Very nice to be able to go swimming at any time of day or night in a private setting. The staff are very discrete and room service was only done while we were out. Breakfast was a highlight being served to the two of us. Try the pineapple pancakes, they were the best.

One bit of fun was an unexpected visitor who made its presence known in rhe dead of night with a loud noise that we had never heard before. We later found that is was a tokai ( a large gecko) and the sound to-Kai was quite cute.

Location is quite rural with a lovely rice paddy walk straight across the road. They have transport to go to Ubud anytime so the rural setting was fine.

Only thing that wasn't quite up to expectations was the special dinner. Location was brilliant but the food could have been a bit better for a Western pallete.

Very reasonable price and overall a great experience. Would be only too happy to return.

Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bed pool villa and loved it. This is not the " four seasons"....but is an excellent "bali style" hotel/villa.
Nefatari still has one foot in the bali of old, with the basic but attentive service that you just can't fault.
Courtesy shuttle into Ubud (or restaurants) works well both ways.......you could walk but would be maybe 15min.
Complementary soft drinks/water in villa fridge
Included breakfast was everything we wanted and some....and kept our family of four happy.
Rooms are large and roomy, aircon(no fan), TV with indosat and DVD, mosquito nets, mossy coils set every evening, lovely semi-outdoor bathroom, lush pleasant garden with private pool in gated compound.
The only issues......a very slippery front driveway...beware, no towels when we checked in.....rectified straight away, occasional waits for the shuttle to return when heading out.
We would stay again

Love this place and have stayed several times now. Excellent value, friendly, helpful staff with the free transport into town being especially useful.

If you want old world Bali charm, you'll love this place. If you're looking for modern, western style accommodation, forget it.
