I stayed in the Pita Maha five years ago already with a friend and remembered the place as very cosy, relaxed and beautiful. That is exactly what I experienced this time when I went there with my fiancée.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The Villas are already a little bit „outdated“ but still exciting beautiful. Most of them with their own little pool. They are spacious, have outside showers, large terraces with various beds to relax, a nice table on the terrace which we used for dining (dinner and breakfast).
The only thing which was terrible was the fleas we had in our bed (Room 209). But we were told later in Seminyak that most beds, sofas and other textiles in Bali keep fleas from the animals or the weather as such. Anyway in Pita Maha it was really annoying: My back looked like having rubella. Apart from that you’d have to tolerate all the small animals you will find in a jungle: spiders, geckos, small birds, frogs, etc. all can be found in your room or at least outdoor bathroom but you will understand that this is normal in a place in the middle of the jungle. And I have to admit, the staff does its best to keep them away from the villas.
The place is as quite as it can be. You can enjoy a maximum of privacy combined with a fantastic view over the alley into the jungle. If you enjoy „listening“ to the sounds of nature – it’s your place to go.
We also visited „the Royal Pita Maha“ which is the same, just bigger, more expensive and less personal. We would recommend to choose the Pita Maha. In addition it is closer to Ubud town.
The Pita Maha offers a restaurant (average quality I have to admit although the breakfast was very nice) a small quiet spa a large infinity main pool (most of the time we were there alone) and free WiFi as well as 24hours room service.
If you need a break from your stressed out daily life have a break out to Pita Maha in Ubud – only an hour from Denpasar Airport. The hotel offers a complimentary return shuttle to the airport.
