“The perfect balance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I booked the entire resort for a group celebration based on the positive reviews on trip adviser.Believe everything you read!! Amori Villa's exceeded all of my expectations and it was the highlight of my celebration.I believe that Rick and Peta have created "The perfect balance " and every need of their guests is anticipated and fulfilled in such a genuine , friendly and professional manner.When I stepped onto the grounds I could not believe how beautiful and tranquil it all seemed, then I walked into the main open plan dining/living area and I could not believe my eyes.The VIEW overlooking the Petanu River Valley was simply stunning and I have no words to describe how I was feeling at that moment except to say that I knew without a doubt that I had chosen the perfect accomodation.
The Villa's- I was luck enough to see inside all of the villa's and they are all outstanding with quality bedding, furnishings and awesome bathrooms( some indoor/outdoor).We stayed in the tree house as we had a family of 5.I would have to say that this was my favourite as it accommodated my large family and has an amazing view over the valley.
The staff- All staff are amazing at all times. This definitely makes a big impression with me and they exceeded all expectations.Having drivers available to take you where you need to go was such a relief as it's not easy to transport 14 people around!!
The View- To die for.
Dining- The food is freshly prepared daily to a very high standard.We enjoyed breakfast daily which has a large selection to cater for all tastes.We also had a BBQ dinner buffet celebration for a birthday party which was organised by the staff and I would highly recommend this if you get the chance.The effort that went in to making this night special bought tears to my eyes.
The Pool- The infinity pool was amazing and the views from the pool are incredible.
If you are thinking of staying at Amori Villa in Ubud you will not be disappointed.

A special spot, perched over a stunning green valley with distant views and stylish facilities. A relaxed and unfussy version of a luxury villa hotel. Only five villas, staff quickly become like gentle friends.

Ubud and all it's atmosphere minutes away by complimentary shuttle yet Amori is within an agricultural area and village that seems oblivious to the tourist business and feels authentic.

Looking forward to the next visit.

I spent 6 peaceful , relaxing days at Amori villas. Had amazing massages, with Suni who has vast experience working in Jordan for the royal family. She does wonderful facial as well.
The staff are so friendly and helpful. You must pay Amori Villas a visit.

Room Tip: The top villas have better views

I cannot endorse this hotel highly enough. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations--which were very high after reading so many positive reviews. We will never stay anywhere else in Ubud and cannot wait for our next trip to this amazing paradise within paradise.

We were at first concerned that the location of Amori Villa is on a hill above downtown Ubud--we wondered if it would be inconvenient to arrange drivers rather than just walking out the lobby into the city--but during our stay we realized this is the charm and luxury of Amori Villa. The hotel drivers were always courteous and ready to take us into town or pick us up. The trip to the Ubud Palace--from which everything in downtown Ubud is walkable--is no more than 5 mintues. It was not a hassle at all. Instead, we were able to see a real side of Ubud each morning on our way to town. We saw local residents of the homes near the hotel making offerings, working in the rice fields, cooking, voting in elections, even holding a ceremony. We would have missed all these sights had we stayed in the very touristy areas downtown. The drivers were ready within minutes of our requests to visit town, and were always early for pick up times in town--and the ride is free.

The Villa itself is beautiful. You hardly know there are multiple villas for guests, we often felt as though we had the whole property to ourselves. It was very private. The view is breathtaking. Rather than looking into the forest, the Amori Villa are set on a hill that overlooks a forested canyon. You can see trees in every direction, we had a wonderful afternoon on our balcony watching the rain pour down and seeing flowers open on the trees around us. It seems that every room has a view, but our room, the Valley View Suite, had incredible views that we were so enamored by. Our room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We appreciated the attention to detail--even the hand soap was strawberry scented. The gorgeous infinity pool overlooks the valley. It's a serene place to relax and take in the beauty of tropical Indonesia.

The staff at Amori Villa are so well trained, but even more importantly, they are friendly and courteous. By the end of our stay we considered them our friends. They knew our favorite breakfast and drink orders and called us by name from the first day forward. Our every need was anticipated and met, and no request was ever too much. We felt so pampered! The staff arranged massages, tours, dinner reservations, drivers, laundry, and even a trip to the morning market and an on-site cooking class for us. They tidied our room each morning and turned down the bedding each night. We were very impressed with every staff member we met.

Meals at the Amori Villa are delicious! The breakfasts were so large that we rarely ate lunch. Breakfast was included in our room rate. The banana pancakes were wonderful but the local Balanise breakfast selections were amazing! We also enjoyed the fresh juices--made to our request. We enjoyed the food so much that we asked to arrange a cooking class. The Amori chefs took us to the morning market and helped us shop like locals. The morning market was an amazing sight! The colors of all the fresh flowers and produce and their scent is well worth a visit! The chefs prepared the ingredients for us and then at dinner we had a hands-on demonstration of how to prepare our favorite foods from the menu. It was wonderful! The one-on-one nature helped us to really understand the technique and flavors in a way we would not have in a larger class. The chefs also sent us home with recipes so we can practice and share our Balinese cooking skills. We were privileged to be able to share the dinner we made with the owners of the Amori Villa. They are very kind and it was interesting to learn the story of how the Amori Villa came to be. (It was originally going to be their home but we are so happy they chose to share it with travelers!)

We also arranged a tour of the Moon temple through the Amori. The prices were comparable to the prices offered in town, but offered customization of the tours so we could stop at the places we were most interested in. Additionally, we knew we would have a good driver and be in a car with air conditioning and seat belts. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. He was very patient with us and even took pictures for us. When we needed an offering for a temple, he kindly helped us to know what type to buy and negotiated the price down for us. He told us stories about Bali and Balinese culture the whole way--which we appreciated and encouraged by continuing to ask questions. We learned so much on the tour and we are so glad we booked it through the hotel.

In sum, our trip to Bali was incredible and staying at the Amori Villa was the best choice we could have made! If you are looking for a relaxing, luxurious hotel, don't hesitate to stay here.

Room Tip: You really can't choose a bad villa. We loved our stay in the Valley View Suite. It had a gorgeo...

after spending a few hectic nights in the center of ubud, we were delighted to move just 7 km outside the city center to find this piece of paradise. we were even more fortunate to spend time with the proprietors - peta & rick dunn - who were the most welcoming, warm, wonderful hosts. we truly enjoyed our time there, and the meals were delicious. one downside, was that I got stuck in town one afternoon without a ride back to the villas (so I took a taxi). peta made up for this by comping me for an amazing massage with sony - an astounding masseuse. all in all, we'd go back in a heart beat!

Room Tip: ask for an indoor/outdoor bath room, and a villa with a view (balcony).

This place epitomizes the holiday vacation anyone wants in ubud ! The staff and facilities were second to none and am already thinking about when I could possibly come back! The food cooked in the home style kitchen was delicious and flavorsome and they cater for all needs - even my annoying shellfish allergy! I couldn't recommend this place higher, the staff made every detail beyond pleasant and make their guests feel like royalty. Perfect for a family getaway or a stay with friends. We ended up barely leaving the villa it was such an incredible atmosphere to be part of. I couldn't fault it!

Returning to Amori was so wonderful & truly relaxing. Being pampered with in room massages and swimming in the infinity pool undid all of my stresses. All of the staff were incredible and made the stay perfect. This is definitely a favorite destination & a tranquil oasis!
