“Beautiful, but dirty”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

I stayed at the Villas for my honeymoon last weekend. The villas are very pretty and definitely private. The shuttle that they have to Ubud center is definitely a plus and they will pretty much drop you off anywhere you want them too. The staff is also very friendly.

My main issue with the place was the cleanliness. We stayed in a 2 room villa, and being a villa we knew the issues there would be with the mosquitos and other insects, however, there really is no 100% closed off part to the main downstairs room section and we found insects (spiders, mosquitos, ants) everywhere, so much so that we didn't feel comfortable sleeping in the downstairs villa. We decided to stay in the upstairs villa which was more closed off then the downstairs (although the slatted windows did not have screens on them), however, the upstairs room villa must not have been cleaned since the prior guest. We found toiletries from the previous person there, a bag of old chips in the drawer and an unflushed toilet (which smelt horrible). Not to mention that I had left my toothbrush out in the downstairs bathroom and went to get it the next morning and it was covered in ants!!! ...We had hoped that maybe they hadn't prepared our room as they should have prior to our arrival and that housekeeping would clean it the next day but it wasn't, since apparently their housekeeping service only consists of making the bed and checking the bathroom is stocked (the floors weren't cleaned or swept, the garbages weren't emptied etc). We stayed in a villa prior to this one and there was no where near the insect problem that this place had. I feel that if they cleaned the place as it should be, on a daily basis there wouldn't be such an issue with the bugs. We wanted to tell the management before we left but the only person on duty at the time did not speak english well and we didn't bother to pursue it.
Another issue which some people may want to take into account. This place is in a rural area, and right next to homes and farms. I am a pretty sound sleeper but both my husband and I were constantly woken up by the sound of roosters (not 1, not 2, but at least 4 or 5) crowing in harmony every morning.

In the end, it was a beautiful, relatively inexpensive place to stay and we stayed for only 2 nights. Had I paid full price i would have been livid, and I definitely would not have been able to stomach more then 2 days there.

We spent two nights in this very pretty enclave of villas. The property is very pretty. Albeit, unmarked and difficult to find. It is located in an area of local homes and a neighboring resort. The dogs barked almost all night for both nights that we were there. Finally, when we thought that maybe there was an opportunity to sleep, the roosters began their morning wakeup calls. The neighbors also burn their trash, daily. The rate we paid was 262.USD per night. Breakfast was bland and cold. It took multiple requests to get brewed coffee instead of instant, and when I asked for cream, the powdered creamer was pointed out to me.
The rooms are nicely furnished. The baths look good, but do not function well. The stone tub leaked, and the hot water ran out before it was filled. There was also a scummy substance floating in the bathwater. The upstairs shower (#3) doors did not close properly, so when the jets in the shower were on, water spewed onto the bathroom floor. There was also soap scum evident in the shower.
The pool is attractive and clean. (not heated) The outside shower next to the pool is a nice touch The landscaping looks good, However, the stepping stones are too widely spaced, leaving all of us continually stepping on sharp landscaping stones. The steps to go up to the second room are not spaced for ease of use.
The beds are well appointed and the shuttle convenient. The staff are very nice. Also, there is an ayi/nanny suite with a squat toilet which is not mentioned in their ad.

We booked 5 nights at this resort in may 2012 in a 2 bedroom / 4 persons villa (Nirwana villa) using booking.com
We had a special rate 1300$ for 5 nights inculding the transfer from the airport to the hotel.
When we arrivee at 11:20 pm at the airport we where greeted by two lovelly staf memebers of the resort. Trip time to the hotel from the airport was a bit less than 1:30

The resort is just paradisiac. It's in the middle a a little country side town near ubud (15 min drive from ubud city center (free shuttle to there)). The place is really peacefull.

Our villa was huge and beautifully decorated. Each room is in fact a villa that has a separeted dressing room and semi-open air bathroom with a huge amazing bath. The garden with the huge swimming pool is in the middle of the villa's ground. This pool is just perfect with a connected whirlpool (not lots of jets but very convenient to relax in the water). You have also a full outside kitchen and an outside dinning/living room.

If you want to be near Ubud avoiding the crowd of the city center and enjoy the county side this place is exactly What you need.

There is some free bycicle available to visit the magnificient surounding (rice field, villages). The bicycle where like new. It's really a great way to discover Bali and meet people.

The staff is lovely and really helpfull, they helped us to book our trips, driver,....

The breakfast is very good. We took the Balinese one (fried rice or noodle with fried egg and vegetables, fresh fruit plate, juice and coffee). It is served at in your villa at your desired time by the friendly staff members.

We really don't have anything negative to say about this resort.

It was exactly what we wanted:

- a peacefull place not too far from ubud
- a huge swimming pool
- a huge bathroom with a huge bath
- a very good and huge bed
- bycicles to discover the surrounding
- smilling and helping staff
- good price/quality offer

We would for sure come back here

We spent our first week of our honeymoon at Kampung Villas and it was a very private , beautiful place to stay . The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the free shuttle service made up for the distance away from Ubud centre ( around 10 mins drive from the villa ) . I would highly recommend this to honeymooners or a family wanting there privacy - breakfast was great everymorning and served at whatever time you like and a very comfortable bed we would definitely return .

The villa we stayed in was very spacious. The service quality was beyond expectations. Free shuttle service to ubud more than made up for the distance from ubud central. Found the management very accommodating. I would highly recommend this place for travelers who love their privacy.
