“Great girls getaway”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed for a few nights with two girlfriends and had great service, beautiful area and was close to hustle and bustle of Ubud with friendly locals! Even tough it was a short stay, we had a blast! We even had home cooked breakfast every day with suggestions on what to do. Everything was well organised for us... From the driver, to the activities and we'll definitely be back again next tear

I was there with my family in July. Pondok Iman Villa indeed a nice place to stay over,surrounding by the paddy fields, cool and fresh air especially at night. The staff there also very friendly and nice to us. Nearby got a few cafes and we can get the staff to help us order the food and deliver until our villa, this is pretty much appreciate. And Helen, the villas owner was very thoughtful as well by helping me to buy a birthday cake. Besides that, with the handphone provided, it made us more convenient to contact the local person for example the tour guide. Really thanks about that. The villas location is not very strategic if you are planning to have a walking distance to the ubud town unless you rent the motorbike. And the car cannot drive in to your villa so you will have to walk for about 10mins to go outside to meet up your driver. It won't be a convenient place to stay for old people who having difficulties in walk and my mom was the one. She had complaint every time we walked out and in to the villa. The only 2 commends for improvement is at the breakfast which I suggest to use a nicer coffee powder and tea, AND to wash the sofa case/sheet more often because it was smelly when we were there. However, the overall stay at there was good and nice.

Thanks for your comments, both the praise & the suggestions for improvements are always welcome & helpful. Glad you felt at home & well looked after, and enjoyed the environment. We try to be very clear in all our marketing that the Villas are only accessible by motor bike or foot & are a 5 min walk to the main road & car parking area. But It's good to reinforce for other travellers. Unfortunately to be in the rice fields usually means no car access in Bali. However this is an issue if any of your party have trouble wallking
As for the covers - everything is supposed to be cleaned after every guest, so I have re-inforced this with the staff. Thanks again for your feedback

We really enjoyed our stay here largely due to the friendliness and care of our wonderful hosts Helen and Keduk (and her cheerful helpers), who made us a beautiful breakfast each morning, and were always available to have a chat or give advice on day trips etc. Hiring vehicles and drivers were also arranged for us. Keduk made a lovely dinner for us one night, filling the table with delicious, local dishes.
While the villa isn't in the main centre (20 min or so walk away) there are some lovely cafes, warungs and a laundry within 5 mins walk. We loved that we were away from the busyness of the centre but were instead located with rice paddies all around, where the locals were going about their day to day business tending their fields, building etc. Locals were very accomodating and friendly.
The Vila itself is comfortable, clean and well stocked with kitchen things, some DVDs, books, brochures... Bottled water was supplied. The pool was a hit with the kids as well.
We had a bit of drama on the last day with one of our party becoming quite ill due to dengue (contracted in Seminyak not Ubud) and Helen and Keduk were both incredibly helpful to us.
We were also given a mobile phone to use for our stay which was helpful in making local calls

I always love having fellow Australians stay with news of home & it was certainly a delight to meet all you guys & have some great chats on the balcony! And of course we're delighted that you felt so well looked after. Kadek & the team truly are my Balinese angels, and I couldn't do it without them! I will pass on your review to them & thank you for your generous the tip they really appreciated it.

4 nights in this hideaway! Lovely villa with a freshwater pool surrounded by paddy fields. Breakfast was included as well and Helen was generous enough to extend another airport transfer. Great place to come with friends or family. Will definitely be staying here again if ever in Ubud.

It a lovely place, private and affordable with amazing staff. Only problem we had was that it was quite hard to find the place and the lanes to the place are too narrow even for our scooter. The villa though was very nice and clean. The breakfast was a real treat along with a wonderful swimming pool. We liked the place soo much, we ended up extending it for another day.

Hi Leena & Mat
And it was great to have you all here for another day! You really looked like you had been living in the Villa for weeks - we love to see our guests so at home & really utilising the Villa & the local area. You'll be glad to hear that work begins to widen the path in September which will make things a lot easier with bikes. Hope the rest of your stay in bali was fun, and hope to see you again.

We stayed in April and the experience was fabulous. We got to know and love the scenic path which led us to the villas, and the villas were something even more special. The garden is gorgeous with a private pool that is a very decent size. The shaded day bed by the pool provided an escape from the sun and breakfast on the verandah was a delight every morning. The rooms are spacious and clean, with lovely ladies coming every morning to cook breakfast and clean the rooms. My favourite was the bathrooms - it gave you an indoor outdoor feel. While you were in the complete comfort of your bathroom, the sunlight escapes in above the shower and its like you are outside. Love it. Victor was our buddy that provided us transport to and from many places - he even took us to Seminyak on a day trip. The location seems funny at first but you get to love it and find that it is actually extremely close to the centre of ubud. Helen is one of the loveliest people I've met. Having known her for a while now, she made sure that we were comfortable, safe and that any of our needs regarding the villa and our trips out during the day were met. thank you to Helen for a great stay. Definitely come here - it will not disappoint!

Hi Missmoo Thanks for taking the time to write - it was great to have you all here, reunions are always fun, and to have one for family & friends was a delight to watch. Glad you loved the bathrooms - they're one of my favourite things about Bali - standing & watching the sky while you shower! Victor says hi! He had as much fun driving you as you had I think. Look forward to having you back here one day
