Umalas Retreat although a little off the beaten track ie no restaurants within walking distance, was so relaxing and clean and as the subject title suggests the staff were so friendly and welcoming.
I was recently a guest at Umalas 1 with my family. There were 7 of us in total and we had a truly wonderful stay. Juwini looked after us like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. Her cooking is better than most of the restaurants we went to - there really was no reason to leave during our 4 day stay. The villa is beautifully decorated and has all the home comforts you require and more. We loved Umalas 1 and can't wait to return for more spoiling!
We stayed at Umulas retreat villa 1 with a group of 4 adults and 3 children....its was truely a magnificent stay! We have travelled many times to Bali and this has certainly been our top pick of places to stay. Kay the Villa owner was very helpful and quick with replying to booking enquiries.
The villa was located in close proximity to Seminyak with shopping and restaurants. It's in a nice quiet street with a fantastic spa near by.
The housekeeper Rusmini was absolutely lovely....such a wonderful cook. Her breakfasts are amazing. I highly recommended that you get her to cook you a dinner aswell. We organised a Babi Guling feast and it was delicious. Rusmini kept the villa spotlessly clean. Wish we could have taken her home!!!!!
The villa has 24 HR security so we felt very safe. Putu was also very helpful as the villa transport driver!
The villas are very decorated with beautiful style thanks to Kay. The beds were super comfortable and the layout of the villa was well designed. The pool was beautiful and the outdoor living area was fantastic.
Highly recommended Umulas Retreat and really looking forward to staying next time we holiday in Bali

We loved staying here in villa 3 with our 5 year old son. Rositia cooking us wonderful food every day was a real treat! The food is restaurant quality and she is able to cook an array of fine Indonesian dishes. The place is so quiet and relaxing, having your own pool and big cushy sofa to stretch out on. Outdoor living at its finest! Highly recommended to any family that is looking to just stay in and relax at the villa with meals all taken care of for you.
Totally recommend as a fantastic alternative to any resort or hotel. Impeccable service, my wife and I were there with our 4 young boys (9, 7, 5 and 2) and were really well looked after. Lovely food cooked by Jawanee, a short ride into Seminyak if you need to but for us we just wanted a quiet, private place to settle in after the flight. We stayed 3 nights before heading north. Really perfect for a family group. One suggestion, a baby monitor would be good if you've younger kids as the rooms are not interconnected. This wasn't a problem really as they are all just a few metres apart. Thank you to the team.
The perfect family holiday retreat...if you are looking for Rest and recuperation, this is the perfect destination. The owner Kay and her super friendly staff reward your stay with amazing service from start to finish. This is a five star luxury villa from interior, hygiene to the cleanliness of the pool. A BiG thank you for making our family holiday full of beautiful memories of our stay.
We absolutely loved this gorgeous Villa ! Juwini is just beautiful and is an amazing chef. It was quiet, peaceful and very safe. Our four children wanted to live there forever ! I highly recommend a trip to Ubud wuth Putu and a massage from the lovely ladies who come to the villa. Booking was so easy and hassle free thanks to Kay, and she provides heaps of valuable information at the villa about Balinese culture - how much to tip etc... A taxi to Seminyak Square only took about 15mins but there are some great local food places nearby too. We can't wait to come back !
