Arriving at XL Villas was like a dream, the layout is fantastic and peaceful. It is quiet and immaculate. We couldn't fault the cleaners or the massage ladies for that matter. Everybody was always smiling and seemed happy to be there.
Unfortunately the place is in the middle of nowhere with no restaurants, bars, shops ect within a 30 minute drive, which is fine if you don't want to see anything of Bali. We on the other hand wanted to experience the surroundings - We were stunned, realizing that there was no FREE shuttle bus to the next town or to the Beach (which should be running at least twice a day for the hotel guests free of charge). The only option is to pay $16.50 each way to Ubud for the Hotel bus which leave every morning at 11am.
Getting dropped off in the town centre we were advised that the pickup will be at 3 pm. So we've waited at the pickup point, nobody came, we rang the hotel to be advised that the driver will be back at 4pm - 4pm came and still nobody there - we rang the driver who advised us that he will be there shortly; one hour and several phone calls later he finally arrived (no apologize offered).
The drinks and the food are incredibly expensive; comparing the prices to some of the best restaurants in Bali - even the Bintang Beer was twice the price ($6 plus the extortionate 22% Service Charge - everywhere else it is $2.50 plus 10% Service Charge).
Again, the layout, the library, the pool etc. was fabulous. Unfortunately the service at the restaurant and reception are rather poor and not what you would expect in a place so well designed.
Trying to sit somewhere to read a book at night time to relax was another issue - the lighting is dim and there are only two places with efficient lighting after 6pm - the bar (where one can get asked to leave after ordering a drink, getting the drink but 'apparently' somebody else has reserved the only outside table and suddenly turned up = a group of two people just having one drink against a group of five people wanting to eat and spend more money)
It's a shame to think that somebody put so much effort in the set up of the hotel but left it to fall down due to untrained staff.
The initial costs of staying at XL Villas are reasonable but adding on the service, the Taxis everywhere, and the price of Food & Beverages can become an expensive Holiday.

Our first xperience in Bali was very awesome n inspiring. XL Vision Villas location is away from noise and busy places. It is truly a place to have quiet, peaceful & serenity surrounding. Comfy large rooms, big balconys, spacious bathroom. Assistance was prompt. Only setback is rooms only comes with 2pin plugs. Have to request at office for a plug conversion to 3pin. XL Villas surrounded with open rice & corn field which creates a truly quiet & inspiring environment during the night. Will come again & stay here next time around.

Room Tip: Choose 2nd level rooms ( Terraces) facing rice or corn field.

I just had a board meeting at Vision Villas and found the same to be very suitable for our companys board meeting. It has different venues to conduct a formal or an informal board meeting. Service was excellent and quality of food and drinks cant be better. Just wish that more people could take advantage of this wonderful venue, the beautiful landscaped gardens and enjoy the continious sound of flowing water all around.

Room Tip: For people with small children, prefer to take the room at the back end ground floor as it contains two queen size beds and is more spacious.

This was my second trip to Bali and my first to XL Vision Villas. The XL Vision Villa has such great spaces in the gardens and fabulous huge beds in comfy rooms. I could not get the side lamps and lighting system to sync in the room but seems it was not a problem as I never asked for assistance. Assistance with whatever you need is what you'll get and always with a smile. Off the tourist track and a great place to work or relax. Ask about the architecture and reasons behind it, it makes the space even more special.

We had the most extraordinary family holiday at Vision Villas this last week. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and shown to our lovely rooms quietly surrounded by a beautiful garden. The peacefulness of the resort allowed for quiet, restful sleeps. My 3 boys enjoyed their individual large Balinese style beds and spent most of their time swimming in the pool. They soon befriended the warm,friendly staff and learnt how to order drinks and food at will! Personally, I loved there was no TV in our rooms so we could truly relax in our own world. However, it didn't take the boys too long to discover a TV/movie room and a kid's play room which gave my wife and I some quiet time alone.
Even though we bathed in the seclusion of Vision Villas, we were only short distances from great attractions like the Bali Safari and Marine park (5 minutes) and the wonderful restaurants and shopping of Ubud (20 minutes). In fact, we spent 3 days exploring the adventures of the Bali Safari where my boys got to experience wild animals up close and personal - hand feeding Zebras, elephants, camels and playing with a beautiful young Orang-utan as well as a large yellow python! They have a new found respect and understanding for these beautiful animals.
Warm and friendly staff at Vision Villas, beautiful surroundings and easy access to other activities made this a truly memorable holiday for us all.
Thank-you

Room Tip: All rooms are unique and part of a wonderful story. Some have secluded outside showers - very nice.
