Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat
Ranked #3 of 598 Specialty Lodging in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We loved our stay at Bidadari. We loved the peaceful and beautiful surrounds and while we were expecting it to be nice, we were thrilled with our villa. It couldn't have been better. The rooms were huge, the view was amazing, the pool was big enough to have a nice swim with our son and we loved the eating areas. Even the toilet had a relaxing surround, ours had a view of a rock-art wall and it was directly over a large fish pond. There was a very balinese feel to the villa and we really enjoyed the beauty of it, from the hard wood floors, to the carved doors, to the statues throughout, it was really beautifully put together.
The service at Bidadari was exceptional. The staff all go out of their way to make you feel special. Each evening, they take your order for breakfast and then bring it to you fresh in the morning at the time you ask (complete with warm toast/croissants, fresh fruit, etc). Both the Bali coffee and cappucino were very good. Because the villa was such a delight to be in, we had two dinners at Bidadari as well - the special duck dinner and the Indonesian set menu. Both were delicious.
I couldn't recommend Bidadari more highly and we will definitely be back to enjoy it again.

We recently had the most enjoyable 5 night stay at Bidadari Private Villas. Yes it really is a secluded, private paradise as most other reviewers have observed. The highlights for us:
1. The staff - The service was of the highest level, with Mr Rana and all the staff at all times completely committed to ensuring our stay was a happy one. If we ever wanted to head into town (about 10min drive) there was no question - Mr Rana (the manager) personally drove us on a number of occasions. We were also picked up upon request. All at no extra charge. I have to agree with diefee81 - you could not expect this sort of service or attention at the best 5 star hotel.
2. The villas - We stayed in two villas. The first was single bedroom, but the bedroom was huge. We easily fitted in an extra bed for our son (which incidentally was not charged for). The overall quality of the villa was top notch. It was beautifully and tastefully furnished. The bathrooms were of the most luxurious standard (and included the most wonderful, natural shampoo/conditioner/soap products all handmade found at Bidadari only). The bed was huge and truly comfortable. The second villa was an upgrade kindly offered to us - to a two bedroom villa (three storey - it was enormous) with amazing views of the river valley below (which would be filled with mist in the morning). The villas generally have very large bedrooms, incredible bathrooms and very generous living areas. Cable TV/dvd player etc is all included. The second villa also had a personal infinity pool overlooking the valley, which was lovely.
3. The location (garden, landscaping and surrounds) - A lot of effort has gone into the lovely landscaping, gardens and ponds etc, that provide a quintessential tropical setting for the villas, which are spread out over a relatively steep slope looking down into a forested river valley. I would look across in the morning and watch the farmer walking on the terraced fields on the other side of the valley. It feels green, tropical, secluded and it is very very peaceful. I felt sorry for the other poor tourists staying in the hubbub of busy Ubud. If you want seclusion this is the spot.
4. The food - the breakfast (included and brought to our room) was fantastic. Plate of tropical fruit. Choice of fresh juice. Then choice of american/french/indonesian breakfast etc. Followed by a generous basket of pastries. If you could get through all that you were doing well! And all quality stuff. Well prepared, good food. The staff also very kindly provided my wife (who eats _lots_ of fruit) with bananas, a papaya and jackfruit bought from the market at no charge. That is the sort of kindness we were shown.

I would not hesitate to recommend Bidadari Private Villas to anyone in search of a secluded, peaceful slice of paradise in the hills of Ubud.

Room Tip: The two bedroom villa has amazing views

My partner and I stayed 4 days at Bidadari and we just cannot say enough positive things about it.

I selected Bidadari when I saw the photos of the accommodation and also that everyone who has left a review has only had good things to say. The location and thought put into the construction of Bidadari is fantastic! There really is something magical about this place.

Initially on booking, our requested accommodation was not available. The Bidadari family kindly upgraded us to their most wonderful residence - we were awestruck by our surroundings!

We were very touched by the care and attention given to us by Mr.Rana and Ms.Mahi - they made us feel like long lost family. It is clear that the family at Bidadari take great pride in their work and what they have created here is truly unique - the level of service is second to none. I have been fortunate to stay in 5 star hotels, but nothing came close to the care and attention lavished upon us here.

The spa menu has good variety and reasonably priced. The therapists were very sweet! The food was beautiful and even breakfast came in generous courses. Bidadari has a well thought out winelist, which is not easily found in Bali. We reccomend their signature roast duck dish - it takes nearly 9hrs to prepare the spices and marinade! Tastes amazing!!!

Cannot say enough good things about Bidadari!
We hope to return within the year, I would recommend Bidadari to anyone.

Congratulations to the owners and their staff!!!
We spent our last 2 nights in Bali at Bidadari, and this was exactly what we were expecting from our balinese experience...
Beautiful, quiet, and great service.
The staff was very kind, helpful and attentive to our needs.
Food was excellent, breakfast, the tea time pastries were just delicious, and you definitely want to try the tom yum goong and the duck!!
It's a little outside center Ubud, but it's not a pb at all as they will take you there and pick you up with their private mini van, and it will take only 10 min!
I liked that they offer a large list of recommendations, tours, visits in Ubud, its area and main spots in Bali.
Take an early morning walk around the area, you'll get great pics!
Most important: enjoy your villa, every detail of it (garden, bathroom, ornaments, wooden doors, paintings, pool...)!!...
Visit the Spa, you won't regret the experience!
Thank you for everything, we had an amazing stay, we will come back!

We stayed at Bidadari for our honeymoon. We could not have imagined a more perfect setting for such a special occasion. We arrived and were greeted by Mr. Rana and his friendly staff who during our stay could not have done any more to make our holiday any more perfect! The villa was even more incredible than the photographs, everything was of the greatest comfort and highest quality.
The services offered to us throughout our stay from the delicious food to the hotel transport was certainly 5 star quality.
We would recommend Bidadari to anybody wanting a truly remarkable and memorable experience, If you are on honeymoon in Bali you cannot go past this!
Thank you so much Bidadari, we can’t wait to return!

My husband and I recently spent a sereal 3 nights at Bidadari soaking up the genuine warmth and character that defines Bali. It was our first trip to Bali and I am already planning our next trip largely based on our unique experience at Bidadari. I cannot recommend it more highly!

The actual venue is breathtaking in its beauty and tranquillity-you are completely private, surrounded by the sounds of amazing birdlife and the river flowing below..I cannot think of a better place to unwind and relax. The spa is situated near the river so you listen to nature while the therapists work their magic-and they are fantastic and reasonably priced! All the meals we had were beautifully presented and delicious and also a good mix of authentic Balinese and Western food.

Apart from the incredible vistas and natural beauty of the place, the best thing about Bidadari is its wonderful staff..we arrived at 4am to welcoming smiles! The staff really are very special people and they give you a real sense of what the Balinese people are all about. Nothing is too much to ask and everything is always done with a smile or a laugh..you are treated like royalty and one night, without asking, a beautiful private dinner was set up for us next to our private pool with flowers and candles in the pool.. They also helped organise a private tour around Ubud and a fantastic bike ride that ended with coffee in the home of our local guide-so memorable!

One of the emails we recieved in our correspondence from Bidadari said "dont worry-be happy" and that pretty much sums up the place..we didnt worry about a thing and we were incredibly happy..I was genuinely sad when we had to leave and I cannot wait until we return..what a special place...

We were looking for somewhere special to stay for my wife’s birthday and were originally planning to stay at another villa in the centre of Ubud until they put up their prices (after I had received a quote). It turned out to be the best thing that could have happened because I then found Bidadari on Tripadvisor. From the first email enquiry it was obvious that we were going to be well looked after. We arrived at the airport quite late and were greeted by the Bidadari staff who gave us cold towels and drinks. We had been to Ubud before, so we had a fair idea of where we were going. It took about an hour to get there, so it was after midnight when we finally arrived. We woke to the sounds of the jungle and the spectacular view out over the valley. Everything about the experience was fantastic, we loved eating breakfast on the terrace next to the pool. The villas are in a small village 10 minutes from Ubud but with the shuttle service provided we didn’t feel isolated, in fact it was great to be out of the hustle and bustle. All of the staff were wonderful, they even made a cake for my wife’s birthday and sang happy birthday. We felt completely pampered and wished we had stayed longer. We will definitely return one day and would highly recommend Bidadari.
