“Authentic Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

This was the Bali I had hoped for. No tourists, no traffic, no trash. Beautiful setting in the rice fields with spectacular landscape. A staff who made us feel at home and wanted to share their lives and culture with us. Comfortable rooms, beautiful pools, made us want to stay home at the Villa. But when we went out, the shuttles were direct and efficient and the drivers were always helpful and made sure we were safe and found what we were looking for. Coffee brought to our patio, followed by breakfast and lovely sounds of water, roosters and folks going to work. We took a "trek" with Agung and learned about the rice life cycle which is the life cycle of Bali. The owners family was on site and shared their vision for the English schools they sponsor for the local kids and their connection to the local villages. We did not feel like tourists but rather like part of the extended family. An experience of a life time.

Room Tip: 5 of us shared Villa 2. 3 Bedrooms, huge living room, huge upstairs living room. Ensuite bathrooms i...

Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review and for recognizing the friendly nature of the staff. Our goal is to have you feel like family by the time you depart and I'm very glad that Agung and our team made you feel so much at home. Thanks for recognizing the community work we're supporting and we'd love to have you come visit one of the schools during your next visit to Bali.
Sincerely;
Darren

I stayed at Villa Agung Khalia for 9 days with a very large group of 22 people from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Holland. Even with such a large number of people, the service that we received from Agung, Guru and and the wonderfully attentive and caring Villa staff was FIVE stars.

The Villa complex is so well cared for and much attention to detail has been paid. Our group stayed in Villa 2 and 3, and in the honeymoon suites. All the accommodation was extremely comfortable and the house keeping staff were very diligent in keeping everything spotless. With lots of children running in and out of the pool all day, they did a magnificent job. The gardens and pools are well maintained and the idyllic setting in the lush rice fields just completes the magical experience that is Villa Agung Khalia.

The folks in the restaurant did an admirable job dealing with the never ending food requests that our large group asked of them and the food in the restaurant was extremely good. The housekeeping staff were thorough and the laundry and babysitting services were also excellent. The wonderful gardener also does an amazing job with all the landscaping of the whole complex and the gardens are simply a delight. Most of our group also loved the massages that were offered at the villa, along with the manicure and pedicure service. Lots of pampering all around.

The transportation to town is very well organized by the very efficient Guru and I loved the idea of being able to explore busy Ubud by day and having the luxury of coming back to the peaceful Villa at night.

Special mention must also be made to Darren and Laura who worked tirelessly with me for months to make sure that all our large group needs were met, including all the airport transfers.

Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Villa Agung Khalia. You made my Bali Birthday bash so memorable and for my guests, you gave them a vacation of a lifetime.

Stayed in the newly constructed Villa Maia for four nights with our two children at the end of July. The Villa was spacious for our family of 4 and nicely decorated. The location of the Villa is a bit outside of Ubud, but the staff was always available to drive you in (10 minutes) and the cell phone provided made pick ups super easy. The staff was attentive and accommodating. The breakfast overlooking the rice paddies was wonderful. The rice paddies walk with Guru is a must do - the kids loved it and are still talking about it. Our day touring villages and visiting the elephant sanctuary with Nyoman our driver was fantastic. Felt like we got a real taste of Balinese culture and he took great care of us!! Laura made the booking process very easy and was very helpful in answering questions prior to our arrival. The pick up at the airport was flawless. Internet service in our villa was great. While we did notice two of the minor concerns raised by other reviewers - ants in sinks of open air bath, toiletries - they did not warrant mention and did not detract from our stay. We would definitely return and would highly recommend it for families!!

Dear Beachmom118,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay in Villa Maia! We really appreciate your thoughtfulness and I have passed along your kind words to all the team including Guru and Nyoman. We hope that we can welcome your family back at some time in the future so you can check out the upgrades of the toiletries and enjoy again the peaceful and dynamic life in the rice fields.

Hoping your family has settled back into life at home and you have plans for more travels,

What a dynamic place to stay. Agung and Darren you really have a stunning place. Agung our walk in the rice paddy's was really stunning. And then to go to your village and meet your Mom and daughter (again). That was really special. You guys run a real stunning place and you should be really proud of what you do. Not forgetting Guru, all the drivers and staff. They do you proud.

We started our trip in Bali at Villa Agung Khalia for four nights. Wonderful staff, beautiful setting, lovely accommodations. After five nights on other parts of the island, we returned to the villa and all five in our group said the same thing- we were so glad to be back and it felt like coming home. We ate at the villa daily, utilized the shuttle into town, had massages on site, and made many requests of the staff. All were great and the staff was completely accommodating. We all felt that there is a good balance of privacy and interaction with the staff and local community but keep in mind that total privacy is not the point of this place. We asked the people that work at the villa all sorts of questions about Bali's culture and traditions and they eagerly answered us. We got to see what daily village life is like and participate in a local ceremony all because of where we were staying. If you are coming to Bali to enjoy the scenery and the people while also learning what this place is all about, Villa Agung Khalia for you!

Couldn't have asked for a better trip! The Villa Agung Khalia begins to feel like home with the first week of your stay. The staff is so kind and friendly - I feel honored to have had the privilege of meeting such incredible people. They will make you feel not only welcome, but wanted as they love getting to know you and sharing their their wisdom and stories with you. The Villa itself is gorgeous, surrounded by lush rice fields and just ten minutes away from Ubud. If you're planning on staying in Ubud, this is place to stay!

It was an absolute pleasure to spend the time I had in Bali at Villa Agung Khalia. Here are some reasons why you should consider staying here. 1 It is located in the midst of rice paddies, where locals come to work every day. You truly get a feel for Bali during your stay at Villa Agung Khalia because you are not surrounded by tourists, but rather, by local people. 2 The accommodations are wonderful. I really had no complaints with anything, as the villas themselves were comfortable, and will provide an intimate setting for whoever you stay with. You really begin to feel quite at home here, and after a while, you will not want to leave. 3 The entire staff is incredibly welcoming and kind. As you probably have gathered from the other reviews, the staff at Villa Agung Khalia will make you feel at home. I hope this review will assure you that your stay at Villa Agung Khalia will be one you will remember for years to come.
