We have just returned from our second stay at Villa 3. And boy did it live up to our expectations. Umalas Retreat is really our Bali home away from home. Everything about Villa 3 is marvellous. We loved laying around on the comfy couch and swimming in the pool. Nothing was too much trouble for our housekeeper Rosita.. from her cooking us delicious meals, keeping the villa immaculate, ordering us taxis, keeping the fridge stocked with cold drinks or organising for our laundry to be done. Our favourite food was her Pepes Fish and my two children just loved Rostia’s fluffy pancakes for breakfast and her spaghetti Bolognese for dinner. Rosita would bring us Cappuccinos each morning and organised an even prepared a beautiful afternoon tea for special friends of mine visiting Bali at the same time. The Owner Kay is a pleasure to deal with and whenever I’ve had a question she always messages back promptly. Kay had organised a lovely ‘welcome back’ flower arrangement for our arrival. You will be in dreams until next time Umalas Retreat
We just spent 4 nights in Umalas Villa# 6 and as a family of 2 adults and 2 teens we all absolutely loved it , there was nothing we could fault, it was the extra touches that made the Villa have a homely feel to it
The complimentary hamper was very useful when arriving late to the Villa
Rusmini our housekeeper/chef was brilliant she was there when we needed her or gave us our space when we didn't need anything
She cooked us and our friends staying in Villa#3 a huge feast total of 8 of us , yes we pre ordered the whole suckling pig(24 hours notice needed) we had other Indonesian dishes and it was all delicious
Our brekkie each morn was such a bonus. In the arvo Rusmini would light the mozzie coils for us
Because the Villa are a little bit out of town)which we loved espec after a busy day in Seminyak or Kuta was nice to come home to a quieter area) we caught taxi which are so cheap security guard would call one for us
The Villa also has a driver you can book and pay for the day if needed
There's a fabulous mini supermarket called Pepitos just nearby about 30metres down the road and it stocks everything from fruit n veg, toiletries bread etc was very handy
Would def recommend Umalas Villa and we look 4 ward to returning one day in the future
Just got back from 6 nights at Villa 5 Umalas Retreat and I already want to be back! The villa was incredible! Pool was big and kept immaculately clean and got plenty of sun during the day. Bedrooms were lovely and bathrooms had so many little extra amenities that we really appreciated. Plenty of space for all 7 of us and the outside area had a good mix of full sun and shade. Staff were so helpful and lovely and security was always happy to order taxis for us.
The villa is located just near a Pepito Express (supermarket) which is really helpful. There isn't much else in walking distance but taxis are so cheap and easy to catch everywhere. We wanted to spend most of our time at the villa so only really left for dinner or lunch. Barely any traffic noise from the villa which is rare in Bali!
The cold water dispenser was really appreciated by all of us - so helpful to have drinking water readily at hand rather than having to rush out and buy water all the time and I think we definitely made use of the stocked mini bar! Juwini was such a delight and cooked us amazing breakfasts each morning and made sure we were all supplied with coffee and tea when we woke up.
Our 3 year old loved all the toys in the villa and the steps into the pool were perfect for him - very family friendly villa and perfectly safe for little ones.
There is literally no bad points about this villa - book immediately and enjoy!
This place has all amenities, pool, perfect food, cabs, personal touch, awesome bedrooms. Just everything
Celebrated my 50th with a girls trip to villa 5. Nothing was too much trouble for Juwini, what a fabulous chef! Thank you Kay for my birthday cake, such a lovely and personal touch. The security guys were always on hand to call a taxi for us, and we also took advantage of the driver Putu for a half day 'homewares' shopping tour. Absolutely loved staying in the villa, won't hesitate to stay again.
We had four day stay everyone was wonderful especially juwinni the chef wonderful food and such a cheerful and helpful lady security point at units made us feel safe and all so private five minutes from Seminyak for shopping but wonderful to stay in and enjoy delicious food courtesy of juwinni who also shops for great stay and lovely owners we will definitely be back thanks Joanne and Syd
