“Lovely, but....”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

We booked this villa on the strength of a previous review and while we had a lovely time there were a few issues with this villa for us. We went with our 7 month old baby and my mother in law. Although it’s a two bedroom villa, the entire villa is in fact open plan. There is only one wall which separates the beds from each other, but both rooms are open to the living room. This was an issue for both the lack of privacy, and lack of sound barrier when our baby went to bed as we then had to tiptoe round with most of the lights off. The villa is beautiful and really nicely decorated, but it’s not fully sealed off from the outside. We did get a few bites, but also more annoyingly, was the endless stream of gecko poop on everything. I had to wear shoes the whole time and didn’t feel I could put my baby down to crawl on the floor. There is also only one air conditioner in the villa which is insufficient for its size and may also be the reason why the villa smells a bit damp. The staff were really lovely and made our trip. The setting is beautiful, although it’s a long walk out of town and there are very few restaurants around. That said the staff are more than happy to take you into town whenever you want. I think for our purpose is just didn’t fit.

My husband loved this traditional accommodation, and it was very nicely done. The fire flies at night were amazing, however, the noise from the wildlife when trying to sleep can be slightly disturbing. Having said that, the staff were lovely, again, nothing too much trouble, they would drop us off in the local town in the evening and collect us whenever we were ready. The breakfast were delicious, and while there is no TV ( which was nice) they have wifi!

If looking for an experience while in Bali, this is the place to stay!

We found this accommodation on the internet search and dispite having no reviews, we decided to book as the internet site was very well completed and the accommodation sounded beautiful. Communication between the owners or management was fantastic and we were always kept up to date.

We booked the bungalow as the rice barn was already booked. The location of this accommodation was perhaps the highlight of this propery, very close to the centre of Ubud but still amongst rice fields. Our bungalow had some farmers working right in front of the bungalow so we got a first hand look at how the farmers harvest the rice.

Upon arrival, we were blown away by the beauty of this place. The staff were incredibly welcoming and immediately started playing with my toddler and baby, keeping them amused. The staff are genuinely wonderful people, we felt immediately welcomed and nothing was a problem for them. Made was extremely humble and a gracious host, who was always eager and ready to assist in anyway possible. We sprung some last minute transfers on him and he handled it with ease and a genuine smile, the staff here is what makes this place so special.

We were taken to our bungalow and WOW - it is extremely gorgeous - like out of a magazine. Flowers placed everywhere, roses, frangapanis. Beautiful furnishings, dim beautiful lighting, surround sound system, LCD television, beautiful huge beds and gorgeous deep bath to soak in. Beutiful bali coffee and teas provided as well as toothbrushes, toothpaste, beuatiful smelling shampoos and conditioner and eco friendly mosquito repellent spray. We relaxed on the deck overlooking the rice fields and watched the fireflies in the fields.....so relaxing.

The breakfasts were AMAZING - the best we had in all the accommodation we had. Fresh bread from Bali Buddha, banana pancakes, asian inspired soup which was amazing - fruit platters, freshly roasted coffee, and the jam - delicious! One morning, our baby was asleep whilst we brought our toddler over to have breakfast and they bought our breakfast to the bungalow instead which was wonderful - nothing was a problem for them.

Each time we arrived or left the property, the staff would 'gong' the drum and smile and wave us goodbye. A beautiful touch that our toddler loved.

I would highly recommend this property, we had a lovely time and will definately be returning - especially for that hospitalitiy and wonderul breakfast, the beautiful bungalow and to see our new friends again ♥
