Our third trip to Ubud & we normally stay outside Ubud. A lot of reviewers complained about the location so if you want to be central, then stay somewhere else but if you prefer a bit of serenity then this place is nice. It's just next to some paddy fields & is 10 mins drive from central Ubud
It's tastefully done & the larger rooms like Rama & Sitas room was outstandingly beautiful. Some of the smaller rooms like the double deluxe less so.
It's a small villa but not a private villa or hotel or resort. It's a small villa with several rooms & a shared kitchen, dining area & living area, & at times inexperienced staff, albeit very helpful. When it's quiet it feels like yours, when its busy its like a regular hotel lobby, but people come & go, so it never stays crowded for long
If you're looking for luxury, or centrality or privacy then this isn't the place for you. But if you like some serenity, being away from the touristy crowd of Ubud, value for money & local boutique villa, then this would give you that.
The place is staffed by 3 young people from morning till 10pm. There are no staff overnight. So if you want 'security' & things from a 5 star resort like safety boxes etc, you may be disappointed.
Staff were very gracious, loved young kids & very helpful
Yes, there was no rubbish bins in rooms, no hand towels, no bath towels, no proper toiletries, no constant hot showers ...but it's Bali after all... & one has to expect these things, but all you have to do is ask, & they will graciously provide
A simple breakfast is provided promptly every morning & the drivers were excellent, driving us to/from Ubud for shopping/sightseeing/dinners.
It's a lovely spot. The owner gave our family a free meal, cooked by staff & free massages at Ubud Wellness Spa, very good massuers!
We enjoyed our stay at Indigo Villas!
