Cousin and I stayed at the Umalas for seven nights and eight days. I had just come out from a hospital stay and needed to 'do as much or as little as needed'. The Umalas certainly provided that opportunity. Set in a quiet neighbourhood with a short taxi ride to Seminyak and Legian Beach providing the 'much as needed' with the relaxation of the Umalas pool and spa the 'little as needed'. The excellent staff in all areas made us feel as though we were staying with acquaintances who were soon to be firm friends. A wonderful lift of the spirits to someone just out of hospital, such as myself. Breakfast was excellent, with enough variety to encourage one to try different breakfast styles from other countries. One boon, which lifted the Umalas rating, was that on our last day spent shopping and at Legian Beach, the Umalas provided excellent shower facilities which enabled us to freshen ourselves up before transferring to the Airport for a late flight home. It just the type of thoughtfulness needed to cap off an enjoyable stay!!

Room Tip: My cousin and I shared a bed so wide that it was no different to having the sleep privacy of a twin bedded room.

Wife & I stayed at the Umalas hotel & Residence for a week. Our stay was excellent, as was our apartment. We would holiday here again.
All hotel staff was helpful, polite & welcoming.
We only used the restaurant for breakfast, snacks & coffee. Breakfast was satisfactory with several choices clearly signed what was in them, IE; pork, beef or fish, etc. The restaurant staffs & trainees are attentive and provide a respectable service.
After a day drip or evening out shopping, we found that with the Restaurant staying open till 10:30 pm was a plus for us as we usually late back. The snacks were taste & the prices were good. Late coffee was excellent with a chocolate coated cimamen stick, mmmm. A great view.
The hotel has a shuttle bus to Seminyak square, Bin tang shops or where ever leaving at 10am, 2 & 5pm or you can catch a cab for 30K,s is about the going rate to the above bit more to Kuta. Cabs always going pasted outside main gate, everyone is a cab. Traffic won’t go there as it’s nothing to do with the hotel, but it’s an experience just a small tip, close your eyes.
The pool is well maintained, clean towels & heaps of deckchairs.
The Day Spa & massage was excellent.
The wifi was weak & lacking at times, but I think it’s a provider (Bali) thing.
Laundry services are just across the road is cheap & they do a decent job. There are 2 shops not far from the main gate that sell anything you may need. 1 too your left up the hill (K-mart) & 1 straight ahead (better choices in this shop).
There is a little restaurant straight head going towards Seminyak, (4-5 hundred mtrs), name? But have an orange sign out front, good value & food taste all right too.
The only thing I would suggest is that non see-through curtains on the pool side doors.
This hotel was located in a good spot for us.
We enjoyed our stay there and would come again.

Room Tip: coffee at the roof top resturant with cimamen stick coated with chocolate is a must.

Stayed 4 nights at the Umalas and will be staying again in May.
Had a package that included transfers, some meals, and snacks.
Overall it was Very good value - The Staff were always attentive and friendly.
The location is quite a way out from everything but taxis are so cheap it dosent really matter- and they do provide some sort of shuttle into seminyak - we opted to just spend the 3 or 5 dollars to get a cab.
The rooms were clean and nice - but our room was probaly the furtherest room in the whole hotel so it was a bit of a walk.
It just had a few strange things like , a bedside table only on one side of the bed?
And the shower was terrible - it was a hand shower mounted on the wall in a bath , the bath you had to step into as it was quite high which if you are of average height the shower stream hit you directly in the neck - we had a good giggle about this but it was just strange.
the couple we went with had the same deal - and their room was perfect - normal shower etc - so we obviuosly got the weird room.
Other than that - lovely pool , food and staff

If you want to get away from Kuta area and yet still be close enough to Seminyak, Petit Tenget and Canggu the this is a good place to stay.

I'd definitely stay again. I had hired a car and ample parking on site was a plus.

The best things: the staff are very friendly, the breakfast is good and the view from the rooftop one of the best in the area. The pool is great and when I was there never crowded.

On a good day its probably 30 minutes from the airport maybe an hour when traffic is horrible on Sunset Road. But well worth the extra travel in my opinion to be in a more peaceful and tranquil area than Kuta/Legian and much cheaper than Seminyak.

There are lots of good quality warungs, restaurants and cafes close by and its about a rp 20,000 taxi fare to seminyak/seminyak beach.

I stayed in a single room apartment and the rooms are well laid out good size. Bed is comfortable. The rooms are very quiet. Bathrooms are a good size but starting too look a bit tired.

The hotel is starting to look a bit tired esp. since its only about 3-4 years old but still in good condition. I rate the rooms about the equivalent or 3.5 stars.

I booked mine on a 3night special via WOTIF and it was about USD$60 per night including breakfast which is absolute value for a hotel of this quality.

just came back for 4d3n stay at this hotel. Room super good, food delicious, friendly staff and environment very relaxing. quite sad since dont have much time to redeem my complimentary spa. although not walking distance to any shopping area, but the shuttle service to seminyak shopping is enough. highly recommend to couple and family!
