This gorgeous villa was just what we wanted for a peaceful place to experience Bali and our expectations were far exceeded from the moment we arrived. Although our hosts were not in the country during our stay, Daniel made sure we were well looked after and was always available to answer any questions or offer assistance. It was so easy to arrange for airport pickup, excursions, a driver to take us into town, daily breakfasts, massages. We must also thank the lovely staff for making us feel at home and treating us like family -- Wayan, our driver; Astri, the villa manager; and Nyoman, who helped prepare breakfast (amazing!) and keep the villa tidy. The villa is beautiful, spacious and comfortable with a stunning view of rice paddies. The kids especially enjoyed the pool and lounging in the beanbag chairs, as well as daily visits from Murka the cat. There are a few places to eat within walking distance (recommend a flashlight if you walk at night) and we especially enjoyed the little restaurant Madani where we had dinner almost every night. We were out most days, busy exploring and doing activities, and it was so wonderful to come back to the tranquility of the villa to just relax and listen to the frogs and enjoy all the stars in the night sky. We stayed for nine days and were sad to leave this very special place. We hope we are lucky enough to go back one day!
We arrived late at night following a long tiring flight to be warmly greeted by Daniel & Kate who are very, very nice people. Come the day light of the following morning I was amazed to see the beautiful paddy fields & gardens plus a beautifully kept pool. Unfortunately we stayed only three nights - I would have loved to stay longer, we also fed the cat who turned up at breakfast time each morning wanting his food which was very homely.
If you are looking for peace, tranquility and beauty this is the very place to be - it's truly amazing. Once again I can't speak highly enough of Daniel and Kate they are wonderful. Possibly return in the next year or so. I would strongly recommend this beautiful place.
Beautiful location in the outskirts of Ubud with a view over the rice paddies. Very comfortable and quiet with just the frogs and cicadas to keep you company. I would suggest that anyone who has arranged for an airport pick up have Viber on the phone and check it regularly. In the busy airport, we missed our name amongst at least a hundred being held up and no one came when we had our accommodation paged over the loud speaker. Taxi drivers were trying to convince us to go with them when we spotted our name briefly as the driver turned around. It was only later that I saw that Daniel had been trying to contact me on Viber which was very kind of him. We didn't have time to use the pool and there appeared to be only one other family in the complex so it was easy to have it to yourselves if you want to cool down. We loved this place.
From the moment we arrived and greeted by Maisya whom might I add is the most helpful and beautiful host we have had the chance to deal with.. Our experience at sundaria villa was the perfect retreat.. The entire estate is serene and exclusive.. Communication is on another level - at all stages of our preparation to daily activity was seemless and painless - this has been the highlight of our 3 weeks in Bali - and a little shout out to our driver Nyoman who was suggested to us by Maisya he went above and beyond to show us what was of interest to all of us... We will be booking sundaria villa again on our next visit to Ubud.. It's a shame we missed out on meeting Daniel but not for one moment did he leave us feeling that we needed to fend for our selves.. He made sure we didn't need a thing - Thank you all for a positive, adventurous and relaxing experience... Highly recommend
Quiet neighbourhood, with a beautiful, clean and peaceful villa inspiring home feelings. The owners were the best ever, always ready to help and we want to come back for sure. Thank you Daniel for taking care of every detail.
My partner and I had a magical 2 weeks stay! Communication with Daniel is a pleasure and he was nice enough to pick us up from Seminyak. The estate is private, secure and stunning. Daniel's wife Kate was there to greet us and show us around the villa which made us feel really welcome. A lovely bag of local rice, delicious fruit bowl, coffee, sugar and some essentials are provided. A big feature for me was the kitchen, it's fully equipped and the large (cold!) fridge a must. I love to cook so we immersed ourselves in the local produce and shared some beautiful homemade meals around the kitchen table. Check out the Ubud morning market for produce and there's a great place near-by called Har's Organic Garden - he picks what you need on the spot! The view from the villa is dreamy. It's ever changing with the light of the day, it's a place of peace and tranquility and we had fireflies at night - so cool! It is open air so if you don't like nature or bugs it might not suit you, it's part of the experience so a frog, gecko or ant all have a purpose so we don't mind! Nothing better than leaving all the doors and windows open all evening and letting nature's symphony put you to sleep! We asked Daniel to organise a scooter for our entire stay as it's about 10 mins north of Ubud, the neighbourhood is really beautiful and the drive in a pleasure, we prefer the quit of the country so it was ideal. If we needed a driver property manager Maisya has able to help us, she was great. The villa is cleaned everyday by a maid called Kadek, she is like a little fairy with a cleaning wand, she appreciates your privacy and peace. The gardener has the most beautiful smile, he cleans up outdoors and feeds the fish, really lovely staff. Daniel organised a driver for our return to Seminyak, it was really sweet to be seen off by Daniel, Kate and everyone. And even more sweet was a goodbye gift and a warm hug - I could have cried but I was being really strong! It's a hard place to leave... Thank you Daniel, Kate and staff for our magical stay! :) xx
