We spent 10 days in Stairway to Heaven and I know it will be one of these holidays we will never forget.
The place is exactly as advertised on the pictures: beautiful. Everything is designed tastefully keeping in mind the guests' comfort. There are 3 bedrooms each with their own outdoor bathroom. We loved taking baths in the middle of the jungle! The living room with open kitchen has a breathtaking views on the rice fields. There is a swimming pool also overlooking the fields.
To access the house, one needs to climb about 140 stairs. The staff is here to help with the luggages so it would not be a problem for someone in regular shape. Obviously it is not suited for wheelchair.
The Villa is located in the middle of the rice fields so you can encounter some small bugs although for a flies or two or mosquitoes we did not see much wildlife.
The Villa is located about 10 minutes drive from Ubud. The manager on site can arrange for a car to visit sights for a day. It is also possible to arrange diner or take away from a not too far restaurant. The staff is present yet very discreet.
Stairway to Heaven is an exceptionnal villa and I hope that I will have the chance to visit again.
Stairway to Heaven was amazing! Right from the start the staff make you feel welcome and they take care of helping you with the luggage, getting you set up and making sure you have meals, clean accommodations and can order wonderful massages in the privacy of your home! The pool was delightful and refreshing and of course had the most spectacular view of the rice patties and surrounding vegetation.
We were there with my mother and father in-law and our three teenage boys and I think we all agreed that the trip to Bali was our favorite!
We loved the interaction with the local culture as the people would come to decorate the shrine on the property each day. However, the bet moment of the trip by far was when we decided to take a walk through the rice patties. It was tedious for my mother-in-law because it was like walking on little walls, but when we arrived at the edge of the field it then opened up to the true view of HEAVEN! I can't even describe how beautiful the lush green hills of rice patties were and how amazed we all were. We also did a local cooking class nearby that used fresh from the garden ingredients that the kids got to collect. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay, the hosts were great, the staff couldn't be better and we had a blast!
This is an amazing place to stay. Unbelievable views of rice fields in a location you would never think existed
Private with a great pool and eating areas. Glass walls to soak it all in. There is housekeeping, menus they can bring you food and s driver. We had massages in our rooms All fantastic people. if you can handle the distance of the stairs it is well worth the climb. This is the area to stay in Bali.
We loved our 5 days in heaven! It was the perfect place to really feel what it's like to relax and get away from it all. We hope to come back very soon.
The location was good. A driver was easily arranged and reasonably cheap. The city of Ubud was really close as well as lot's of temples to visit. The driver was well informed about various touristic attractions. I would highly recommend this villa in which I stayed with my four teenage children (without a man)- I felt very safe!
Food was ok, ordered in by a local restaurant - that was the only downside to it. I thought, there would be freshly prepared dinner served, if you ordered or wished for that.
We all would love to stay at the villa again!
