“STUNNING IN EVERY SENSE !!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My partner and I and a dear friend have just returned from 7 nights spent in Villa 999 at Villa Kubu, 3-10 May 2013. Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing! Perfect! Stunning! Luxurious! Perfection location...and that's just the Villa!!!! The service was SUPERB!!! In-room dining was delicious and excellent value for money as was the divine Kubu Spa. If your budget can stretch to afford this truly breath-taking 2 bedroom villa..do it!!!!! Size and glamour all the way. Enormous Indoor/Outdoor living pavilion, huge pool, fish pond, large separate bedroom pavilions, gorgeous bathrooms. In terms of service, nothing was too much trouble!!! The in-room cooked breakfast by private chef was were outstanding. We will be back...again and again and again......

Room Tip: Villa 999 for absolute glamour!

This is the only place to stay in Bali! We have just got back from staying 7 nights in Villa 999. It was the most amazing villa you could ever imagine - and looks even better than the pictures on the website. It was HUGE and very luxurious. The villas are in the perfect location to great shopping and restaurants and is only 300 metres from the supermarket. All of the staff were so welcoming and very friendly, and really made our stay that much more enjoyable. The Spa Venus was fantastic and the treatments were of the highest quality and very affordable. The room service and the Kubu Cafe provided great food at very reasonable prices. Go with the VIP immigration service (this saves a lot of time) and the transfers were very efficient. We cannot wait to return to Villa Kubu. From Mr Joseph, Miss Lee and Mr King!!!

Room Tip: Villa 999 - nothing like it

We stayed in Villa 7 for five days and had a lovely time. The villa met our expectations. The lawn was perfectly manicured and the room was very comfortable, although it needs slight fixing up, especially the flooring beside the bed.

The service was exceptional, and the staff were very warm and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and well prepared. We also appreciated the nightly turn down service every time we came back to the villa after an outing.

There were renovations going on in Villa Kubu, however this did not disrupt our stay and privacy.

We definitely hope to be able to return to Villa Kubu again.

Dear azlanmalek

Thank you very much for your detailed review. We will immediately look into fixing the floor boards in Villa 7. We are glad to hear that our restaurant and cocktail bar upgrade was not a disturbance for you, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We stayed at Villa Kubu 12 (one bedroom) for a week as part of our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised at the relatively large size of the villa and pool, and the fittings and design of the interior were more modern than we had expected. The complex of villas is very close to the main road in Seminyak with all the shops and restaurants etc, but set far enough away that it was still very quiet and peaceful.
We had breakfast in our villa every day (both western and balinese breakfasts were delicious!) which was cooked by cheerful and friendly staff, and ordered room service a number of times as the quality of food was very good and the prices reasonable. The staff at reception were friendly and always willing to help with any enquiries, restaurant or activity bookings.
We would definitely consider Villa Kubu again if we were to come back to stay in Seminyak.

My husband & I have just returned from a fabulous 8 nights at Villa Kubu. I researched this accommodation very carefully prior to booking, settling on Villa 4. Walking through the door for the first time gazing at the beautifully maintained gardens and pool it felt that all my expectations had been met. We loved the outdoor entertaining area and slept soundly in the king size very comfortable bed. We ate a lot of meals from the cafe which were all delivered to our room promptly, professionally and were all beautifully prepared. I had a deep tissue massage at the spa - awesome! We were happy to make the 20 minute walk to the beach.
I very much appreciated the total privacy that Villa Kubu provides. The staff are warm, welcoming & extremely helpful. The villa was very clean, the grounds impeccably maintained.

The next time I go to Bali, Im going to allow more time to spend around the pool with a good book ! The moment you enter through the high walled gates, you know your in for a treat. The gardens are beautiful, the private pool crystal clear, the outdoor living room well equiped with ipod and lounging cushions, and the airconditioned bedrooms with crisp white sheets and a sarong ready to step into. We loved awaking every morning to our al la carte breakfast cooked and ready to go. Although there are cheaper spas close by, we enjoyed the convenience of having a massage a few steps away. All the staff were friendly and couldnt do enough for you, but I found that of all the Balinese people - just gorgeous!
Villa Kubu, was located just far enough away from the shops to escape the noise and only a $A2 - $A3 taxi fare to the beach and restaurant strip. We hired an excellent English speaking driver for about $A30 a day to take us to places like Ubud and Nusa Dua and cooking school as well as a few cultural experiences that he recommended. His name is Khan +62 81 338 444 506 nyoman_suciani@yahoo.com. His wife is Suci (pronounced Su shi) and she is a Tour organizer. She gave us lots of advice on places to dine and see, shopping and organiszed a tailor for us to visit at our villa.
Be prepared for unreliable wireless internet...it was really hit and miss. Be prepared for the 21% added tax on most things.

It is rare that one finds a hotel that not only beats one's expectation but almost makes one want never to leave it (ok, maybe casino hotels for those addicted to gambling might say the same). But that is how we felt about Kubu. The villa is perfect with private pool, great. Bedroom, private kitchen (with a chef to fix your breakfast!), places just to relax,etc. (one thing it does need is a sofa with a back on it inside the villa). The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. From being picked up at the airport to fixing breakfasts, bringing our dinner one night, recommending restaurants and getting taxis to the restaurant, or driving us on tours one could not ask for more. We specifically want to single out the driver/tour guide for most of our stay. He is a delightful, knowledgable person who not only tells about his island but engages you in a real exchange person to person. While the place was a bit expensive, it was worth it. Truly we wanted to stay longer there.

Room Tip: We would strongly recommend a true swimming pool, not a soaking one. Mew loved #7.
