Have chosen to book the one bedroom villa for 4 nights because it was really cheap - had also wanted somewhere quiet to spend some quality time with my loved one. The villa offers airport transfer at USD12 per person per one way - we thought this was a little steep as you could easily get a taxi to bring you and your family there for Rp 100,000 (provided the driver knows the way).
The villa is situated in a secluded area in Canggu, which is about 45min drive from the airport and 30-40mins taxi ride (approx Rp 80,000 one way) away from Kuta Square. And because of the way off location, will suggest that you spend just one or two nights here. There are no nearby convenient stores - though, you can get the hotel staff to go get your necessities for you. There are a couple of affordable drinking places and restaurants along echo beach, which is a 5 mins walk from the villa.
Despite its slightly inconvenient location, kubu rama gives you a cozy feel. Was really happy with the condition of the villa - 3 years old but was pretty well maintained. One big drawback though - plenty of insects and bugs, even when we kept the air conditioning on and doors closed at all times. The insect repellent provided by the villa staff did not seem to work and the number of mosquitoes at night is just overwhelming (the bugs stay away in the day).
Another area of disappointment was the lack of wireless internet service. Had dropped the villa an email a couple of days before arrival to confirm the availability of wireless internet connection and the latter confirmed that they had wireless at the villa. Had then brought my laptop with me but had not once in the 5 days there, been able to connect to the internet. When I informed the front desk, they simply said the the internet was down due to the rain and suggested that if we needed internet connection, we can head down to the restaurants at echo beach. This completely did not make sense - the internet connection works fine 50 metres away but not at the villa? Anyhows, since it gets dark early in Bali, it would be nice to have connection within the villa.
Would only recommend this place for a one day stay and if you don't mind the bugs.
