The moment we walked though the giant wooden gates of the gardens of Villa Kalisha, we knew we had found paradise. Everything about this property is perfect. From the secluded location to the spacious house, every moment of our stay was fantastic.
Now to the details.
A few folk have complained about the distance from the villa to Ubud town. 15 minutes in an air conditioned car is not far at all. You get to drive through all of the craft villages, so there's always something to see.The house itself is huge, I mean HUGE. Both bedrooms are bigger than most of the luxury suites found in any hotel. The outdoor/indoor bathrooms are beautiful and the perfect place to unwind by having a bath and soaking up the views. The pool is larger than all of the little plunge pools usually on offer, and the deck comes with 4 comfty deck beds to relax on. The TV / lounge room has a flat screen tv and heaps of DVDs to choose from. Free Wifi meant that we could stay in touch with back home easily.
Our holiday was made perfect by the guys who run the place. Made, Nyos, Wayan and Wayan go above and beyond to make every wish come true. Made's cooking is sublime. We ended up eating in nearly every night. Her banana pancakes are to die for.
Make sure you request Dougie to be your driver. He is not only the funniest man we have ever met, he has an amazing knowledge of EVERYTHING there is to do around Ubud. Ask him to take you to Prapen for the best silver jewelery in Bali.
My partner and I have been lucky to have traveled all over the world, staying in amazing locations and beautiful hotels, but this really has become our favorite destination of all time.
Feel free to email me with any questions about your potential stay.
