“Definitely Will Be Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The entire stay was such a great experience. From the moment I was picked up by their driver, you can feel that they are very professional (or at least they have been trained well).

At Check In, the receptionist were very friendly and whomever was serving you will usher you to your villa, explaining in very good and clear english, everything about the villa that you are staying in.

Villa 9 is where I stayed. Though it was located almost to the end of the property (I think). I didn't bother to explore much about the property, as the villa I stayed in is enough for me to stay in and not wanting to get out.

The Living Room was huge, so is my bedroom and the bathroom. Though bathroom was open concept, but the very well maintain garden with koi pond makes it very forgiving. It has everything that you need for a good stay in the villa. Every toiletries are available for your use, even bath salt for the tub that you may want to soak in.

The bedroom is separate from the Living Room, so you have the option to keep the living room open air (or aircon) with the bedroom fully in aircon.

Bedroom was with a huge king size bed that gives a very luxurious feel. They even provide a sarong, and a sandalwood fan for your use during the stay.

Living Room has 2 big sofas that you literally can lay down to sleep or rest, it also comes with a IPOD 8GB filled with all genre of songs for your selection. Thou the docking stations has some connectivity problem, wish they have bluetooth speaker instead.

The Villa also comes with my own private pool, which at the end of my stay, I have a very good tan all over.

The breakfast is served in the villa, with the chef cooking in the villa's kitchen, and you determine what time for the breakfast to be served. The villa kitchen's is very well stocked with all drinks and snacks should you want them.

The other good thing is that the staff would NEVER enter your villa even if you do not put up the dont disturb sign. They will wait for you to open the door for them to enter. This is very good as they respect your privacy.

It was for my personal retreat, thus am very happy with my stay. Would definitely return with my wife or family to spend time with.

Dear Sir

Thank you very much for your great review. We will check all our Ipod docks to make sure that connectivity is perfect, and see if we can find better speakers as you recommend.

I chose Villa Kubu as my "home base" when returning from my sabbatical studies of the Indonesian language and culture.
The Kubu Kafe was one of my favourite places to eat, read and study. It's quiet location surrounded by tree jumping squirrels made it a special place for my morning rituals.

Spent one week at Villa Kubu in Seminyak and had a fabulous time. Spent half the week in villa 15, sharing with another family and then the last 4 nights in villa 999, the latest villa built at the complex and a truly beautiful villa. Staff were extremely helpful, the food was fabulous and very prompt when requested. The villa also provides guided tours - some good advice would be to ensure the vehicle sticks to the route advertised and to see everything on the agenda takes much longer than indicated, A planned 8 hour trip took more than 10 hours. The villa is close to shops, you just have to be careful of the motor bikes on the narrow lanes. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Villa Kubu this month and had a great time there. The villas are great and although not located right on the beach that was not a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend Villa Kubu. If I was to say anything that could be improved and that would make me give 5 stars is that the rooms will need some updating somewhat soon. They are still very nice though and don't let that steer you away from staying there.

Dear Frederico

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us, we appreciate it your time.
Should you wish to be closer to the beach next time take a look at our sister Villas: Lataliana Villas which are located minutes away from Seminyak beach.

We will look into updates for the rooms and look forward to hosting you again (perhaps with some new surprises!)

Best regards

The Villa Kubu team

The stay was great until one of its staff did a peeping Tom on me and my wife.....you decide for yourself....no privacy at all..... Also when me and my wife in the bathroom having a bath...they simply walk in and do mosquito spraying...what if we came out naked!!!! The worst nightmare of my vacation happened here..

We very much enjoyed our 6 day stay at Villa Kubu - the villa we choose from the website was spacious and its pool large and surprisingly deepish (neck-high in all areas below the single flight of stone steps). The Cafe restaurant was an unexpected bonus delight - Rita the chef clearly takes great pride in obtaining quality, fresh (unfrozen) produce whenever she can, and enjoys preparing very tasty fusion cuisine, including her 'specials-of-the-day'. We ate 'in-house' much more than we'd expected, allowing us to enjoy the villa more during the evenings. Breakfasts are available in room or at the cafe - a nice choice. All in all highly recommended.

We stayed at Villa Kubu at the start of Dec 12 for 1 week. (villa 10)
The villa was wonderful, clean well laid out and comfortable.
The pool and bale were beautiful and the bathroom was simply amazing.
The staff here are really friendly and would do anything you could possibly want. They always had a smile on their face and made you feel so comfortable.
They provide a very professional service and respect your privacy.
The villa has a great 3 flag system for communicating with staff
Red- do not disturb
Green- please enter to clean our villa
Yellow- to indicate villa is rented
You simply hang your flag outside your front gate!
They have a wonderful small cafe with well prepared and presented food and a nice in house spa.
You could do as little or as much as you like here as they do offer some great services
Scooter hire
Car hire
Tours with a guide in a modern air conditioned car.
clothes laundered
Spa treatments and more..
and your breakfast made in your own kitchen in your villa.
We had only two issues the inside shower head needed replacing as it was well worn and we found the mattress to hard (but this is a personal thing and others might not mind it)
We liked this little slice of paradise and would happily return again.
