The experience at LUXE Villas is absolutely exceptional. It has a perfect balance in so many different ways:

The rooms are beautiful, huge and impeccably styled, whilst not pretentious at all

The food is generous, delicious and worthy of some of the best restaurants in the area.

The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and go above and beyond what is required of them on a regular basis, but at no point do you ever feel like they are there, they just seem to be around exactly when you need them.

The location is a perfect balance of rural (the rice paddies in every direction are a magnificent thing to see every day) and yet so close to Ubud centre you can get there in just a few minutes by motorbike (or, I estimate, about 10 mins walk).

Everything is so, so great it is well worth the cost. We took the room with the roof terrace which was like having a second room on top of the first.

There are so many things to love about this place. Get yourself there!

Room tip: Views from the roof terrace suites are awesome. Particularly on the South side.

From the moment we step into the villa, we are surrounded by TLC (tender, loving, care not tomato, lettuce and cucumber). Luxe's staff is professional yet personal. They perform their duties with passion and enthusiasm - not mere chores.For cowards like us, the only phobia is the scooter ride back and forth to/from the villa as this is not our cup of tea. Whenever the scooter rides up an elevated avenue, down a slope or encounter on-coming traffic, we thought we are going to fall or collide our knees against the wall. Silly us. We spend two weeks in Indonesia and the three days in Luxe were the best. Thank You Luxe. Love you.

Everything at this hotel is meticulously thought out and executed. Being in a rice terrace presents certain difficulties such as transportation into town, but they have an extremely convenient motor bike system which provides you with pick up from the center of Ubud in about 5 minutes. They even provide you with a cell phone so you can contact the drivers when you need a ride home!! My wife and I used this frequently during our stay.Once you get back to the hotel, everything is flawlessly maintained. The rooms have remarkable decor and everything was spotless in our room and on the grounds. The staff was incredible during our stay. They put in extra effort to make sure we were enjoying our day and always had great recommendations for things to do around Ubud. You truly feel as if you are at a home away from home. This was unlike any hotel experience we have had in the past. This hotel is certainly "one like no other"

* I originally submitted this review in early October, but for some reason my Hotel rating were listed as one star. I had to remove the review and resubmit, this time with the correct hotel ratings.

What a great place to stay in Ubud, Bali. From out moped arrival in the rain to the high tea on our last day our stay couldn't have been better. We were greeted by a few smiling faces who didn't seem to mind carrying us and our suitcases on mopeds in the rain to the Villa. And the smiles didn't end there, every day we were greeted with a warm welcome and if we required anything to make our stay better.

The Villa sits among rice fields and requires the use of a moped or walking to get to the property. Walking from the main street of Ubud is an easy 15 minute walk, but when it's 80 plus and humid, getting a moped back and forth is so much more convenient. You get a cell phone to use to contact the front desk and can be used to order room service to arranging rides to and from the Villas.

Our room was the Amber Suite (Padi Suite on the hotel website) and was more than big enough for the two of us. The room had walk in bare foot clean floors and had a king size bed and a large bathroom. The bathroom had a full sized tub, two sinks and a walk in shower. A fresh bowl of local fruit arrived every afternoon and the fruit options changed everyday. We never had some of the fruit options before, but we tried them and wanted more. We had to use the free wifi to discover what some of the fruit items were and how to eat them and once we did we wanted more.

The Villa has a restaurant on property and is about a minute from our room to the restaurant. We enjoyed breakfast there or in the comfort of our room and while the menu looks small, it was a full menu and had everything we wanted to eat and more. At night the restaurant turns into a fine dining establishment and the food is really good. Make sure to try the cappuccino mushroom soup. If you wish to try the local food in Ubud, the staff will provide a list of recommended restaurants.

We had an early morning tour (Sunrise trek to Mount Batur) and while we didn't request one, the staff mentioned that that were more than willing to provide us with a take out breakfast box. We left the Villa at 2:30 am and we were greeted with smiling faces more than happy to provide moped rides to our meeting point.

At night the Villa is quite. The Villas are away from the main street of Ubud and at night you will only hear the croaking of the frogs in the rice fields. Very peaceful.

I know a lot of hotel have the same things I have mentioned on their properties, but the thing that makes this hotel so special is the people working there. From the moped drivers, managers, cooks, wait staff, maintenance and the owners (Paul and Grace), every one makes you feel right at home and that they are glad you are there to spend your time with them. After out and touring Ubud and the surrounding areas, it was nice to come back to such a great property and smiling faces.

Room tip: No USB plug outlets so make sure to bring your own. Only UK power outlets with one EU adaptor. Wifi is free, but not the fastest.

We stayed here for three upon arrival in Bali. It set the standard for the rest of our trip very high. Luxe Villas is in an amazing location, close enough to the center to either walk / scooter ride yet so far away from the hustle and bustle of the center. Its set among the rice fields and there is a lovely walk through that reception told us about that I'd recommend.
The hotel is excellent,finished to a high standard and the quality of everything is very good. Our room, was spacious, designed beautifully and didn't want for anything. Paul kindly organised a massage in our room after we came back form trekking Mount Batur which, again I'd highly recommend!
However the thing that really is amazing is the service and the people behind the service. Its personal but not imposing and very thoughtful and considered.
Lastly, the food is exceptional as well. We ate there one night and it was up there in our best meals in Bali, cocktails are also good and getting back for afternoon tea is well worth it.
I highly recommend Luxe Villas.
