“very special place in the middle of the rice field”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

We have stayed with my family (including three children) for 3 days in villa Agung Khalia in Ubud. When we arrived we experienced a warm welkom by the villa staff and this was extended during our entire stay. Nothing was to much for the staff. We were escorted by Mr Agung during our site-seeing trip and got free taxi service to Ubud when needed (10 min. drive). The accomodation was extremely hugh for our family, but we appreciated the space we had. Our kids loved the pool and the free Wifi access which they used if we were spending our time at the villa.
The location of the villa is excellent: in the middle of the rice fields where you can walk through or bicycle (bicycles aviable at the villa!!).
There is no airco in the villa, but this is no problem at all; the fans are a much better alternative.


We like to recommend the Villa to everybody who likes comfort, view and hospitality.

From Mr. Darren Leaver (the owner) to his Staff the service was great and made Ubud, Bali an easy place for a city boy like me to become acclimated to and feel comfortable very fast. Agung who is one of the main drivers is a great problem solver and very full of interesting facts. He picked us up from the airport in Denpasar and even though our plane was a few hours late and he was standing there with a sign waiting that whole time, he was in good spirits and very friendly on the drive back to the Villa. It's important to have a good driver like him to get you from the motor bike filled streets of Denpasar and through some of the narrow more difficult to navigate streets of Ubud. Especially if its your first time in Bali, you learn a lot just from the short drive with him. I knew I was staying at a Villa but didn't know exactly what to expect. After passing through the center of Ubud it was a short drive (10 minutes) to the Villa entrance. A short ride down a bumpy road which Agung's Kijang SUV makes easy work of and is a small price to pay for the seclusion and peacefulness of the Villa, then we were greeted by the friendly staff. They helped us and our luggage to our rooms and were very welcoming. Almost made me feel like I was coming home though I had never been there before. The setting of the Villa is beautiful among the rice fields, It really makes you feel like your in Indonesia as opposed to staying somewhere in the center of Ubud. Great rooms in the Villa that stay cool at night upstairs and downstairs with just a ceiling fan. Very luxurious feel around the inside of the Villa's bathrooms, living rooms, dining room, staircases, balconies and patios. It's great to sit out on your private balcony at dusk and watch the multitude of stars come out over the fields.
When hanging by the beautiful overflow pools and getting some outdoor massages on the raised Bali Cabana's or daydreaming platforms isn't enough entertainment. The drivers will take you into Ubud at your request. When I needed an ATM or to go to the store all requests were met. Even when I had realized I had brought my only car key with me to Bali they were happy to drive me to the Fed-Ex in Ubud not far from the Villa so I could send it home. If you are visiting for leisure it's a great place to spend the whole day. The fridges are kept stocked of water and beer. Breakfast is great and enough to keep you full well into the afternoon. The Villa has Wi-Fi throughout which is included, and television has some international and interesting local channels. If the purpose of the trip is for sightseeing then Ubud and the Villas are the perfect central location for seeing many interesting sights in Ubud itself and exploring all of Bali.

We've just spent a week at Villa Agung Khalia and I've never stayed in such luxury before. I saw the photos and reviews before going but this completely exceeded expectations. The villa is enormous and every corner is decorated in stone and wood carving. The bedrooms are big and the private pool is about the same size as a hotel pool. I was concerned that the fan cooled rooms would not be enough for Bali but we were all pleasantly surprised at the coolness of the villa, and we even had to use blankets at night. Breakfast was delicious (especially the banana pancakes) and we could get French-pressed Balinese coffee throughout the day. Our morning views were great and we were treated to daily views of volcanoes, rice fields and on three mornings we saw Java Kingfishers. The best thing was the staff service, as we felt completely looked after from arrival to departure. I recommend this villa without hesitation.

We had a very good and fantastic week in Villa Aging Khalia. The house was huge, and comfortable, the service perfect and foremost the family of Agung made our stay unforgettable. Our granddaughter learned to make baskets for offering and she went with Agung’s wife to bring the offerings to the garden and shrines. Agung was always there to help us in any way he could. Agung and his family , the beautiful house in the middle of the rice fields and Ubud in the neighborhood made this a beautiful experience. We hope to come back one day.
