“Great villas with terrific service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa travelling with friends for 4 nights. From our late night check in to midday check out staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The villa was lovely with a large private pool and outdoor dining (no kitchenette other than the fridge. A kettle was provided on request and we were able to use that in our rooms). Bedrooms were spacious and beds and pillows very comfortable. In room safe, in a lockable cupboard, was great and secure. Bathrooms were large with semi-open air shower in main and bath with detachable shower head in both. Very clean and beautifully presented with the toilet tucked away behind the vanity wall. The toilet roll holder was a little far away from the toilet though and lighting was dim. Walls were quite thin between the bedrooms being both ground level rooms and curtains were thin letting in the outside lights (note: front reception can arrage to have these turned off. You can't turn them off yourself) and early morning light. Breakfast was nice and brought to the villa daily with staff being friendly and helpful and breakfast dishes cleared away quickly and efficiently. The complimentary transfers (both ways) to anywhere we wanted in the city centre were great. About a 10 minute drive each way. As transfers were available on request, it was not a problen for us to not be walking distance away. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and well presented. There were quite a few steps though - not a problem for us but could be for someone with mobility issues. Overall a great stay and would recommend Nefatari (and Ubud!) to others.

Can't really add much to all the other reviews here which contributed to our decision to stay at Nefatari. We'd spent the first half of our Bali holiday in Seminyak staying in a modern villa, so this was quite a contrast. The architecture is much more in the traditional Balinese style, each Villa being surrounded by high moss-clad walls.
The hospitality was great: They picked up on time from Seminyak. The complimentary transport in and out of Ubud is efficient. Free soft drinks and snacks in the minibar. Complimentary afternoon tea with cakes and fruit. WiFi quite fast and always on. Pool cleaned daily. Traditional offerings placed in our Villa and around the property regularly..
Check out is at 11.00pm, but our flight wasn't leaving until midnight. They said we would be able to stay in our room until it was time to leave, provided the room wasn't booked. However, it turned out they were full, so they stored our bags while we took a trip to the Bedugul area (35K with car and driver for about 6 hours). On return, we were able to shower in the Spa and prepare for the journey home.
There's not much in the way of shops or restaurants nearby, but there is a pretty good cheapo Indian about 75m down the road - turn right out of the front gate. There was an English couple staying in the Villas who liked this restaurant so much they went every day!
Only downside is there is no tea-coffee making facilities in the room, so you have to wait for breakfast before you get your first cuppa. (Though they probably would bring you one if you asked, I didn't.)
Overall, staying at Nefatari will ornament your Ubud experience.

My husband and I had our honey moon at the Nefatari Villa. It is through trip advisor we got to know this villa. We bought the honey moon package. Staff are warm and helpful. True enough there is complimentary transport to everywhere because the villa is located up hill. Is a bit distant to the ubud market and shopping area. They took time to decorate our honey moon villa, the set-up was very romantic with lots of flower petals. They also have a nature spa with natural stream water flowing, the sound of the stream water is very therapeutic. The massage was just ok. You can forget about manicure and pedicure, is not that good. This villa is totally balinese set-up. We like it! Is quiet and romantic. Highly recommended if this is what you're looking for.

Room Tip: Mitre Villa got the best pool

We stayed there 4 nights for the Christmas break as a family and had a wonderful time.
The villas are beautiful, large, the resort is very well attended for, the service is great and the staff very caring. Would stay there again if returning to Ubud.

My wife and I stayed at nefatari in February for 6 nights. We loved our stay and loved ubud. We got picked up in seminyak by nefatari staff. Great welcome and quick trip to ubud. If you don't already know, ubud is amazing!! Rural, filled with top class dining joints, much quieter, and quainter than on the water.

PROS:
- we loved our large private pool!
- breakfast as said by other reviewers were amazing. Banana pancakes every morning! And delivered right to our villa
- staff was very friendly throughout.
- while a shuttle is needed to get to town, it's a quick trip and you are never waiting more than 15 mins to get picked up
- definitely would stay again!!! And WILL be back to ubud! (Go on the bike baik tour!!)

TO NOTE: not negative - but maybe interesting to know.
- there are bugs in and around the villa (like in your backyard at home)
- use of the Mosquito net is probably advised
- the bathroom is 'outside' but the quality of shower etc is top notch

This is just amazing - the picked us up right on time from Kuta, then they told us that they are upgrading us to a 2 bedroom pool villa as one bedroom pool villa was unavailable. The Check in was a breeze. Everyone is very courteous. The Villa was just amazing, the room, the bathroom, the pool and the deck chairs everything was just top notch. It was a full service villa, we had breakfast at the resturant and once in our villa and we had complimentary tea service in our villa.

Ubud is a little remote so they have a free on demand shuttle to and fro from Ubud so whenever we felt like going out we just did and on one call they came to pick us up.

This is the best value villa and is highly recommended.

I would recommend everyone on their honeymoon to take atleast two nights here in this villa and just relax.

We stayed in the large Villa (2 rooms) with our family of 4. A spacious 2 room house with 2 outside bathrooms and a private pool. What a great place, very relaxed, quiet what a great place to relax and adjust to the time difference... Breakfast and tea/coffee can be served in your villa. The drivers will take you anywhere you want to go in and around Ubud. They pick you up from town when you want.
Friendly balinese staff, from drivers to the reception.
There are obviously also some downsides to Neftari, which are in no comparison to the upsides, but have to be mentioned for a complete picture.
It is a bit outside of Ubud, you can not walk there, also you mis the view because of the walls around the complex, which gives a high level of privacy, but in return makes you mis out on the great rice paddy views!
All in all great place!
