As I sit in Villa 7 overlooking the pool, my new husband is snoring his lungs out and I could not be happier. The RK is heaven on earth ~ private, luxurious, serene and best of all ~ NO KIDS! With only 12 villa's,we only ever saw another couple once in the 4 days we have been here. My husband had never been to Bali before, hence our splashing out for a top-notch spot ~ we found it. From the genuine smiles, to the crisp, clean laundry smelling of the most wonderful fabric conditioner to the very generous and varied breakfasts, our stay here was worth ever dollar. Highly recommended. Ps. Lina at the Day Spa was wonderful as was the cooking class with Chef Wayan.

Room Tip: ALL the rooms are excellent. With only 12 villa's,there are no bad ones.

Our 5 days at Royal Kamuela were flawless - our villa, number 7, was magical. The service, from check-in to butler breakfast to our drive back to the airport was all fantastic. A true couples retreat. Is it pricey? Yes - but you et what you pay for and we thought it was worth every penny. We will be back!

Special thanks to the wonderful staff, nothing was too much trouble, and they genuinely seemed to care that we had a great time. Thank you!

OMG this place is heaven we went to celebrate my 60th birthday the staff are so good they arranged a cake for my birthday one of the staff took us and picked us up from The Bridges restaurant another fantastic place on my birthday. The villa was always kept spotless clean all the staff from the pool man to the manager are so friendly. There was always someone there if you needed anything but they were never in the way very professional and very discreet. The breakfasts were great. I really felt very special I can't thank all the staff enough for a fantastic stay. I would go back again to or row if I could. We went with another couple who were also very pleased with the whole set up. To finish off the great trip on the last morning we were entertained for about 15 mins by the local monkeys. We spent 7 nights here not enough. 3rd -10th March

Hi! My girlfriend and I stayed at several places when we were in Bali and we are both pretty experienced travelers. Its also important to note that we are pretty spoiled as travelers so we expect a lot for our money. That said, we were BLOWN away by this experience at the Royal Kamuela. The people of Royal Kamuela are so very warm, inviting and accommodating. We showed up a few days ago on a very rainy day. We had just come from a much more expensive villa in Seminyak and it was incredible as well. So we arrived in Ubud with an idea of what our money would get us. For the money it got us about twice what we expected! Breakfast in our private villa every morning was amazing, the shuttles from the hotel were perfect, their concierge recommendations were spot on and the location has to be one of the best in the area. Totally satisfied and we are without a doubt COMING BACK TO EXPERIENCE AGAIN!

Room Tip: The one bedroom villa is great!

We had never been to Bali before and wanted to celebrate our 23rd wedding aniversary in style. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was to much trouble. Its a bit of a journey to Ubud but well worth it. The accommodation was just what we hope for, very private and the pool was great. We particularly enjoyed a trip to Mt Batur booked through the hotel. Room service was great and Katut was the best driver,tour guide you could ask for. Will definately be going back again.

I was most skeptical about this property out of all the hotels we booked in our vacation to Bali but have to say this was my favorite and wish we'd stayed longer. Having stayed off the beaten path in the mountains and a bit of a walk from the shopping area in Seminyak, I was thrilled to be in the thick of it on Monkey Forest Road at the Royal Kamuela. You'd have no idea there was a bustling town outside your door from inside one of the villas, though. Each room has a huge pool and outdoor lounge complimenting the spacious bedroom and bath area and is very quiet. Breakfasts were delivered promptly and generously portioned. We were always on the go so we didn't take advantage of many of the hotel services although I thought the free 30 min leg massage was one of the best I had during my trip. We felt the facilities here were incredibly luxurious and the decor inside the villa was so interesting and beautiful. Our only complaint was that we wished we'd seen the monkeys visit our villa! We were only there two nights so may have just missed out.
