“Amazing Villas with affluent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Stayed there with my wife for 3 nights in Villa 999. The whole stay is to be classified as amazing.

Villa:
The villa is very spacious and clean very well maintained. At the entrance you'll find a big fish pond full of variety of nice colored fish and stone walk through. Then separate dinning room connected to the kitchen and this is where you'll have your tasty breakfast made upon your request in your room.
There is a bedroom besides the dinning room (for us it was an extra room) with a nice dressing room and outdoor shower and toilet.
In the middle of the long corridor you'll pass through the spacious living area which I believe you can have a party of 20 to 30 ppl easily and comfortably. This area is equipped with Ipod station connected to high end "bose" speakers and "pioneer" sound system.
The pool is very big with massage jets and night lights. beside the pool there is a very nice gazebo. and pool deck has two pool beds.

The master bedroom is very big with a very high ceiling where you can feel that you are in a hall rather than a room. sleeping quality is perfect, feather pillows and cotton linens make your sleep very comfortable, to the extend that we once over slept till noon !!!!
Bathroom is very big with an AC and outdoor shower and bathtub.

Service:
The service is amazing, the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Breakfast made is extremely delicious. Mini bar is filled upon your preferences that you inform them with.
We didn't try other meals than breakfast as we were trying other Seminyak gourmet spots.

The villa provides you with free bicycles, however we didn't use them as Seminyak street is just 3 minutes walking distance.

Spa:
The spa is good and therapists are well trained and professionals. The therapy lists are wide with variable treatments.

We highly recommend staying in Villa Kubu and we will be there again.

Just one comment for the management that few other villas (mainly one bedroom villas) needs minor maintenance to walls, ACs,..etc. We noticed this as we get the opportunities to check some of the other villas.

I would like to thank Made who welcomed us in the reception and was of a help through out our stay and Astina the lovely driver who introduced us to many of Balinese traditions and customs as well as his free lessons in "Bahasa Indonesia"

Thank you Villa Kubu staff for the lovely stay.

Room Tip: Villa 999 is recommended for luxury stay

We stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. Overall the Villa (12) was amazing, very clean, and we can tell that they have maintained the place really well. we love the little things in the villa such as iPod with lots of good music, there were also some books and well stocked mini bar. Kitchen and utensils are all very clean. Everything in the Villa was Perfect.

Just a few comments:
- The food portions were slightly on the small side (as commented previously by another visitor)
- We requested for the front desk person to help us call and find out if we could change the reservation just half and hour later, and she instantly said no, which to us was a bit surprising, as we have stayed in Bali before this, and the staff were usually very attentive and will at least show some initiative to help us at least to call to find out, instead of outright no for an answer. Also, it was our anniversary dinner, but they may have forgotten to mention to the restaurant, as the table which was booked was not the best seats and only when we arrived and mentioned to the restaurant they changed it for us.

Other than that, the Villa is amazing!!!
Thank you!

Thank you very much for the review. In light of your and our previous guest comments we have told our kitchens to give bigger servings. We apologize for the lack of help with your dining booking which hope through more staff training future guests will not have similar problems.

We only stayed for 3 days at Villa Kubu, but the service, staff and gorgeous private uniquely decorated villas were such a delight that we hardly wanted to leave the villa at all. We will definitely be returning again to try out more of the unique villas to choose from.
The in-villa cooked breakfast, the ipod filled with great tunes to use around the pool and all the little extras made this place stand out as such great value.
The service and staff were all so attentive, gracious and so happy to help with any reservations, issues or requests we had.

We loved our stay at Villa Kubu. We stayed in Villa 8 which is a 2 bedroom villa although we only needed the one bedroom.

The Villas are quite beautiful in the modern balinese style but the key for us was the sense of quiet and privacy. The flag system worked well and even if the yellow flag was out the staff would not enter the villa without knocking and being asked to come in. The staff managed the fine balance between being discrete and being friendly very well. In particular, the ladies who came into the villa each morning to cook breakfast were delightful.

Only a couple of minor niggles.
- our original plans had us leaving Kubu on the 12th of March and it wasnt until after we had paid our deposit that Kubu staff informed us that the 12th was Nyepi day which meant that we couldn't travel anywhere on that day as the whole island shuts down for the day. This necessitated having to extend our stay by an extra day and to pay the fee to change our flights. Overall this cost us an extra $600 which could have been avoided if we had been advised up front. Nonetheless we really enjoyed being in the villa on Nyepi as the peace and quiet was incredibly calming and relaxing.
-the food from Cafe Kubu is of a high standard but some of the serving quantities were a bit on the small side especially the tom yum soup.

Dear pahSydney

Many thanks for your kind words - we will review our portion sizes and try to make them better.
We apologise for not making it clear that Nyepi is a day of rest for the whole island - as you saw, the whole island shuts down and the airport is closed with no flights in or out, with everyone expected to remain at home in peace and quiet. We hope you will visit us again in the future.

Loved the villas, so unique and the staff are so friendly. Stayed in Villa 999 which has a fabulous master suite. Great location in Seminyak but unbelievably quiet given how close to the shops. Room service food is top notch.

Room Tip: Each room is very different. we looked at a few. All are charming.

Fond memories of my stay at Villa Kubu - last May 2012. Loved the size of my 1 bedroom villa, really spacious, great touch with the ipod music choices, the kitchen, breakfast and the pool was Fantastic. It's tucked away in Seminyak but close enough to the action, plus it really has a sense of privacy. I also had my own koi pond, right outside the bedroom window, and next to my outdoor bathing area-- Love love love. Besides all of the above, Spa Venus was my favorite part of the stay. The Kubu Rosella treatment was pure heaven ! heaven! Did I say heaven. I also had hot stone and Balinese massages. I had much bodywork during my 30 days in Bali: this spa was among the best, and the nicest. I would really love to go back.

I stumbled across VK through friends and had the pleasure of meeting the owners who are delightful people. They have put their heart and soul into these exquisite villas with attention to detail to the finest proportion. Anything is possible in VK and everyone wants to make your stay as comfortable and amazing as you need it to be. I loved being able to put a do not disturb flag when i wanted privacy and have amazing food and drinks delivered quickly and service with a smile. The emphasis on healthy foods and fresh juices, with fasting programmes appealed to me also. Our airport pick up's were seamless as was anything we booked or inquired into whilst staying in Bali. Staff were a delight, always smiling and nothing was too much trouble. It's a must stay for couples, families, groups etc the central cafe works as a meeting point in a group holiday and fntastic restaurants and shopping are a few minutes walk away. I love villa kubu - hope you will

Room Tip: I have stayed in 3/4 of VK villas and any that may get a little tired and soon renovated - so no pre...
