“Take time off & re-charge your batteries.”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

If you like to take time off from the rat race, unwind & recharge your batteries, this is the place to go.
We spent 3 x relaxing & restful days at this beautiful resort. The Villas are massive with 3 x double bedrooms on 3 x levels with just natural scenery.
The staff was friendly, helpful & the service was always good.
The natural beauty & scenery is unmatched to anywhere else in Bali.
You must walk down to the river. It so pristinely beautiful, it should be in the worlds heritage listing...untouched, clean, & soul inspiring.
We will go back again & like to recommend this resort un-reservedly.

Room Tip: Take your own alcohol. The Villa #2 we stayed in was great.

We stayed at the Villa Sembuwuk, a new 3-bedroom villa run by Bali Villa Ubud. We were, in fact, the first guests to stay at the Villa - which meant that 1) Everything was clean and new (and smelt of fresh paint) and 2) Some things weren't working.

The property itself is 4km to the North of Bali Villa, situated in open country next to the rice fields. It is built in a minimalist modern style - aluminum and glass instead of Balinese wooden doors and features and very different from the rest of their villas. The master bedroom had a partial view of the pool and en-suite bathroom, the second bedroom also had pool view and en-suite, but the shower is shared with the third bedroom. There is an additional shower in this bathroom, which is partially open to the sky. The kitchen is decently equipped, with a range of modern appliances. They even had an expresso machine. There is a digital safe in the kitchen, but it is placed awkwardly with the keypad deep inside - and they couldn't open it! The TV is tiny for the size of the living room. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. Although there are rice paddies around, there is no view of them - the walls are high and there is no 2nd level.

It was so new that there were just installing the wifi when we arrived. They had yet to connect the TV properly, and we had to ask for waste bins as there were none. But the biggest problem was a faulty hot water heater - we had cold showers in one bathroom for two nights. It was a teething problem, and took two attempts to get it fixed. And we could not get them to fix it at night - it had to wait until the next morning.

Pros - it is a good location for the country experience, with rice fields just outside and the sound of cocks crowing in the background. It's also good for those looking to really get away from the crowds as there are only a few scattered neighbours.

Cons - The isolation also means that restaurants, groceries and support from Bali Villa Ubud is some distance away. You would need either your own vehicle or get help from Bali Villa to get anything.There are supposed to be 4 scheduled trips to Ubud centre (20 - 30 min drive) - but their driver was kind enough to stop by a supermarket to get groceries, drop us off at a restaurant and then make an unscheduled trip to pick us up after dinner. Extra trips are supposed to cost IDR50,000 but they didn't charge us for it.

As we were the first guests to stay at the villa, and I suppose to make up for the cold showers, they gave us a complimentary breakfast on the last day. Throughout the stay, the staff tried their best to be helpful - it was Nyoman who brought us to the villa and supervised the installation and repair work and also invited us to breakfast - a big thank you to him. Various staff did offer their tours and services but we had already booked our own tours and they were not at all pushy about it. Overall, it was good value for money for a country escape.

Some improvements have been made since my last visit, a good sign that the management listen to their guests.

The tiling in the bathroom of Lovina has been replaced with a cream marble mosaic and a new sink. It is better than it was by far.

I particularly like the rooms by the pool with small balconies at the rear of the room.

The menu has also been updated and I ate at the restaurant and had a very enjoyable meal. The service I was as always very prompt and correct and with the traditional Balinese smiles and friendliness.

The grounds are lovely and very well maintained and having management on site to sort any special requests... Like... Scissors please! Or help with parcels is great.

So long as you don't mind being a 15-20 minute drive from central Ubud, there is a regular shuttle, this is an ideal location for a relaxing break. A beautiful pool with pool towels provided, a jungle outlook, and a small spa make this a special secret place in Ubud.

Room Tip: If you want something a bit different at breakfast just ask. I fancied pancakes one morning, and it...

This place is an absolute gem - amazingly friendly staff, a beautiful pool, an incredible atmosphere, with a wall of jungle on one side, and beautiful rice paddies on the other. We booked the 3-day, which comes with a number of additions, like a complementary tour of Mount Batur volcano, a trip to a temple, dinner, and time at the spa.

The pictures currently on the website (May 2013) do not do it justice - it's a breathtakingly beautiful place. Considering the price and compared to other places we've stayed in Bali, it's absolutely incredible - highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you want by the pool, go for the Jimbaran. If you want a spectacular view, go with the Uluwatu.

If you want an extremely relaxed holiday, this is the Place to be!

If anyone asks me why I love Ubud, I will definitely say because I have stayed in this fantastic villa. When I open the room, I can't help but just "WOW! So nice!" you should definitely stay in their Signature room. It makes you feel you are in a dream - so nice that you can hardly believe that is real.

I forget all the tiredness and get totally refreshed here.

People here are extremely nice. During my booking, Ketut and Ayu always reply my email so promptly. During my stay, they arrange everything nicely for me. I want to hug them every time I see them! Manager also super friendly - good taste also!

I feel like I just cannot stop sharing every good aspect! Just come here! And experience yourself!
