“Simply Surreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

As much as my husband and I missed our son, we agreed that a romantic escapade would be ideal once in a blue moon. To our surprise, despite the initial worries about our son's well being, we managed to enjoy the now, much thanks to the ambience of our private villa at Furama Villas and Spa.

The swimming pool was a step away from the boudoir and the bath, with shower experience beneath star-lid sky. Then, there was a massage parlour that enabled a couple to enjoy spa session in the privacy of their own villa, serenaded by melodies from the fountain and the birds. Not to forget were the details adorning the place; my favourite being the bonne nuit wish tucked at the bed every night and the coffee table books on everything Bali. Fresh frangipani surprised us even in the drawer, where I kept my travel journal.

We chose to have the complementary Italian three-course dinner upon arrival, at the restaurant that overlooked the public swimming pool and the whole area where the deluxe private villas were. Similar place for breakfast the next day. We only opted for the complementary breakfasts to be sent to our villa the last two days, which was more recommendable as ones could spend more hours lounging about; exactly the activity we chose on the final day.

Except for that final day, we were up and about by dawn to enjoy the paddy field scenery surrounding the villas. A majestic mountain could also be seen from a mini tower bordering the deluxe villas and the royal villas. Along the way, friendly staff greeted us with genuine smiles. Distance from the hustle and bustle of Bali was not a problem for us as we preferred the serenity.

How we cherished the stay at Furama Villas and Spa, thanks to the choices provided by Malaysia Airlines Golden Holidays.

It's not UBUD, so beware! It is far from everything, so you will need to rent motorbike or a car if you want to do a bit of activities outside the property. If you just want to relax and do nothing, then Furama is definitely for you. We stayed at this property 4D/3N and thought it is long enough. We stayed at lagoon villa, no 805, quite far from lobby and restaurant so we always took buggy ride going in and out, driving past beautiful rice paddy. My daughter enjoyed every single ride, and always took the front seat, next to the driver. The room itself just like other villas, very spacious and beautiful. However, the aircon didn't seem to be able to cool down the big room. We felt a bit warm. At one night, it was making such loud noise to I had to call the engineer in to fix it. But even after that, the temperature didn't improve. Not sure if it was only the aircon in my room or the same in other villas as well.
We ate quite often in-villa and at their restaurant, and I have to say there's nothing special about it. Their breakfast buffet was small, little variety and tasted average. Their in-villa breakfast was actually much better. We got everything we asked for and the portion was big. We had dinner twice here, once in-villa and once at the restaurant. Thought we should have dined out instead. The taste was just average on both times.
One thing I could not fault about Furama was their service. Nothing is too much for them. Staff was very friendly. One night we ran out of formula for my two yrs old daughter, and we had to go and buy it outside. One of the staff was very kind to let my husband use his motorbike to go buy the formula. Thank you Furama!
My accomodation package also includes 30 mins massage for each adult and they arranged without much fuss when I asked for 1 hour massage for one adult instead. Some other properties/hotels would normally refuse. Two thumbs up for the staff!

Room Tip: I prefer farther villa for longer buggy ride

We stayed 3 nights with Furama Villas Ubud being our final stay after nearly a month away from NZ, what an amazing place and location. The staff were more than helpful, nothing was a problem. A little off the beat and track but well worth it, with easy access to the Ubud town (free regular shuttles). We hope to stay again soon.

Room Tip: We had our own villa with pool, very private and secluded, def worth the extra $$

We had a short stay of 3 nights at Furama Villas and found it an excellent way to begin our holidays in Bali. The Resort is located at an off-beat location, surrounded by padi- fields and about 20 mins away from Ubud Centre- which we like.

We stayed in the Royal Pool Villa, which are absolutely lovely. These villas are not modern, but more a traditional Balinese look, spacious and private, set in a lovely garden and specifically the magnificent private pool inside the villa which was refreshing. Entire family including my 2 yr old thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villas due to shear size and enough area for my son to play around. The staff was also kind enough to provide us with a baby cot in the room.

The food is top quality at the resort, especially the Breakfast (Good variety) and Dinner too (Though a bit expensive).

Few hiccups we had due to water pressure inside & outside showers; however got fixed up and running by next day.

The hotel staff are responsive and always greeted us warmly whether it was the grounds people, restaurant staff or reception. The service was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble.

The environment was really natural and will be perfect for the nature lover.

We stayed 4 glorious nights at Furama Villas. Very spacious and serene. Not a lot to do but relax and pamper at the Spa. Staff can't do enough for you. Not far from Ubud if you feel the need for some crowds. Glad we stayed here first before we moved onto Seminyak.

Room Tip: king bed with private plunge pool. A/c is a must as quite hot and humid in October.

Ended up here by accident due to late travel planning but was pleasantly surprised with the property and got a nice last-minute deal that was 50% off regular prince. It surrounds a small rice field or two, but didn't get the sense that the rooms themselves had much of a view. Our particular unit was in the Pool Lagoon Villa, which I would recommend. The room has its own small, shallow and private pool with access to a larger, more public pool just outside the gate. There is another room separate from the bedroom with its own sofa, tables and television. The bedroom is essentially four glass walls that are curtained (curtains do a good job of protecting from light in the morning), so if you have noisy neighbors (with kids playing in THEIR pool) there is very limited sound control. There is a large bathroom with separate shower and full bath-tub with shampoo and shower gels provided. Hair dryer, hot water pot, coffee is also provided. Bedroom has its own television, cable TV and a DVD player and movies can be loaned from the reception desk. They had the ability to convert the king-sized bed into a "Hollywood Twin", which was two twin bed mattresses with separate linens and maybe 1/4 inch separating them. Breakfast is included in the room rate, is provided at the restaurant and there's an excellent food selection. For dinner and/or drinks, the restaurant and bar provide good options but both are quite expensive. Airport rides are available for 300,000 rupiah each way. The property is remote, but they have a free shuttle into downtown Ubud that runs five times per day and takes about 25 minutes (last pickup from Ubud is around 9 p.m.) and drop-off is at the Palace, putting you in walking distance of the entire town. The remote location is actually a nice alternative to the hustle and bustle of Ubud, so don't be too put off by it. Computer access is available in their Business Center, but the server is PAINFULLY slow. Staff are all extremely helpful. There is a spa and fitness center on site, but I didn't check them out.

Stayed 2 nights in the lagoon villa. Fantastic room and service all staff so friendly and helpful. Furama is tucked away in the rice paddies about 15 mins from Ubud town and is just perfect for relaxing and pampering. So easy to get to ubud town but not necessary as the villas are a great place to chill out and just unwind thankyou Furama and to all your staff who made the stay highly recommended
