“Don't go to villa Kubu Pesisi at Oberoi”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Now I understand that there are two villas named kubu pesisi in Seminyak. One is at Oberoi and the other is at Dhyana Pura. These two might be totally different because they are owned and operated by different people. but I have been told that they are brothers.
The villa where I had stayed was Kubu pesisi at Oberoi and it was the exact same villa with the professional photo above.
But the agoda.com linked with tripadvisor led me to book the villa at oberoi.

Following my review is about the Kubu Pesisi villa at Oberoi.

It was terrible!

1. too old
2. too dirty (molding everywhere in bathroom and dirty kitchen. I really didn't want to touch anything and there was a villa directory but it was also covered with mold)
3. bad breakfast
4. too noisy (we should wake up every morning hearing the motorbike sounds from outside)
5. smelly towels and rooms
6. too many mosquitos, ants, cockroaches and geckos (We should be careful not to step geckos' poo in the floor)
7. Staffs were kind but not professionally trained.
8. There was a renovation construction in right next villa during our stay

There was a house called front desk but it was a real house two kids and a family were living. So, it means there was no front desk and any facilities in villa complex. There were a few extension numbers but every extension calls were transferred to someone's mobile even they were off on that day. The location was quite convenient to go to restaurants and shops around there and it was only pro for the villas.

I had really wanted to come back home from the moment I just arrived the villas.
It was a really really wrong choice and I really regret to choose it. It broke my every expectation about Bali.

It was a terrible moment!

Villa Kubu Pesisi in Oberoi has been a dream ending to our wonderful holiday. On the recommendation of a friend we booked this villa, and the rooms, pool, gardens and location is the best you can get for the price - Why would you stay in a hotel when you can have all this and your own pool! They have 2 villas in the Oberoi area exactly the same next door to each other so it would be perfect for two families traveling together or a larger group. The downstairs room has a queen bed, dressing table, full mirror, clothes cupboard and a single lounge that folds out to a day bed. The upstairs room is practically the same except it has a double lounge that folds out to a double bed. They also have a villa on the other side of Seminyak which is just off Jalan Dyana Pura - we didn't see that one but you can guarantee that the service would be great and that no expense was spared decking the place out as the owners have fabulous taste!

Location: the location is a short walk to Jalan Laksmana and all the fabulous shops and restaurants like Ultimo and Rumours. Around the corner is Grocer & Grind which is a fabulous place for breakfast and serves really good coffee. A little further - but still walking distance - is La Lucciola, Sarong and Living Room which are all favorites of ours.

The Garden & Pool: Awesome! Not just a plunge pool but a decent size pool and one end has a nice little ledge in a C shape that made it great for when friends dropped by as we would just sit and drink in the pool when it was too hot. There is a bale and deck chairs and plenty of grass. The walls are high and feels very private.

The Villa: 2 x huge bedrooms. We chose the downstairs room because we couldn't be bothered running up and down the stairs every time that we needed something, but I think both the rooms were pretty even. The downstairs room has a queen bed, dressing table, full mirror, clothes cupboard and a single lounge that folds out to a day bed. The upstairs room is practically the same except it has a double lounge that folds out to a double bed and a canopy bed with a mosquito net. The kitchen is lovely and clean with fresh bottles water and all mod-cons that you could want. The open lounge room & dining area overlooked the pool and garden. Downstairs bathroom is massive with a semi outdoor bath that looked into the garden. They have shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hair dryer.

Services: The staff stay at the front villa and are available all day if you need anything. Maria would come in each morning with her big smile to make our breakfast and tidy the villa. The owner Nyomen and his manager Argus were both able to organise anything we needed. There is an in-room menu that looks fabulous but we didn't try it though - options include having a personal chef come in and cook for you and your guests for under $40 each!!! They also have a masseuse that can come to the villa and offer spa packages for cheaper than if you go to the spa.

I would not think twice about booking one of Kubu Pesisi's villas for my next trip to Bali. Best of luck to Nyomen, Argus, Putu and Maria!
