Hummm.
Hard to exactly describe the place.
When we arrived, we fell in love. It was paradise. The tranquility, the amazing view, the beautiful pool, the wonderful vegetation. Butterflies were everywhere. And the house is done is such style!
BUT
As soon as night fell....paradise became hell. Weird jungle noises, the smell of old humidity on the bedsheets, and the apple-sized spiders! I swear, on the first night, sitting on my pillow, a spider like you only see in horror movies. After that, each night we saw its sisters crawling in. We even left a day early because it was'nt relaxing to go spider hunting every night before bedtime.

But again, the daytime is wonderful.

Toya retreat is a beautiful little gem, hidden in a small village about 20 minutes from Ubud. There is no traffic, no loud music and noise, just the sounds of nature. It is the perfect place for relaxation.

The villas are beautiful and the staff are incredibly friendly. The food is plenty and of very good quality. All in all it is very good value for money.

We booked the package with the driver who took us to small villages, rice fields, temples and showed us the best places for bargain shopping, away from the crowds.

I highly recommend this place for a relaxing and authentic Bali holiday. It is absolutely beautiful!

After so many trips on business and holidays to many countries in SouthEastAsia i thought I had seen it all - but Bali is a totally different experience in its own right, spiritual and here at the same time and I cannot think of a better place to experience its beauty and spirituality than Toya Retereat. We felt in adifferent world,a world we had longed for - and there it was. Privacy, beauty, old fashioned"normal" luxury, and the kindest people in the world to take care of you and your needs, always there but never in your way - infinitely discreet and open for your wishes. Everything else has been already said in the other statements and I can full heartedly confirm them. Go there and enjoy it, but not when I want to be there. :))

Toya is a beautiful unique place located in a small village that you will not find in your guide book, far away from all the touristy crowds. It takes about 20 min to get to Ubud from there by car. The place is run by a caring family that constantly stuffed us with the greatest homemade Balinese food. You should definitely stay at Toya for a few days and you will forget about all the stress at home when you enjoy the wonderful view from your balcony and from the pool into the tropical forest. For a couple of days, we also made use of the possibility to rent a car plus driver who took us around the island to various temples and other sights. If you want to have a great romantic holiday, spend some quality time with your friends or allow yourself a treat to relax, this is the place to be on Bali!
