“Memorable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We were at Villa Kubu for 4 days (April 2014) and I must say it was fabulous! Right from the word go, we were treated extremely well. The gesture to offer chilled water in the hot Balinese sun, when they pick you up from the airport set the tone and we couldn't have made a better choice. The location is excellent with easy access to pretty much everything -- shopping and a myriad eating options. However, the beach is definitely not a short stroll away as they mention on their website; it is a good 30 minute walk/ 10 minute bicycle ride, if you can brave the Bali sun and heat.

The villa itself is very private -- excellent amenities, hygienic and beautiful, very thoughtful staff taking care of all your needs, their earnestness shows. What we liked was their guest relations officer following up with us even before we landed in Bali with our needs, anticipating that we might need a pool fence as we had a three year old and providing fish food for the private koi pond, which our daughter loved.

Some things that need improvement -- the Cafe Oasis really needs an overhaul. The food doesn't score at all, even though the service and ambiance is good. Some of their "international" delicacies are just plain inedible! Although, breakfast included and served at the villa was standard fare.

Our daughter fell sick on our last day in Bali and we had the hotel call in a doctor, a GP. She charged us the earth, IDR690,000 (70 USD/ 90 SGD) and didn't do us any good. Her diagnosis and medication was totally useless with our daughter throwing up every hour in spite of medication. She didn't have disposable swabs or other basic instruments for throat and ear checks which, in these days is a given. She didn't even return us IDR 10,000 change, which we thought was unethical and unacceptable, especially for a doctor!! Villa Kubu should seriously reconsider recommending her to guests, is all we can say.

Barring these minor blips, we had a very pleasant stay in a lovely property with extremely kind and thoughtful staff.

Dear SmithaBhagvan

Thank you for you review. We are constantly trying to improve our services in the Oasis restaurant with a new chef starting soon as we really want to provide our guests with a gourmet experience each time they visit the restaurant or enjoy our room service.

Thank you for letting us know about our doctor - we take this very seriously and will make sure that this service is much better in the future.

We do hope you returned home safe and sound and that your daughter is fully recovered.

All the best from all us at Villa Kubu

It is hard to fault this venue. We stayed in villa 14 and it was superb. The pool, the decor, the outdoor shower and jacuzzi found the right balance between true luxury and a traditional Balinese style. The room service was attentive yet not overpowering and the staff were truly genuine in their service. The venue is located centrally in Seminyak and is within walking distance to good restaurants, shops and the beach. The on site Venus day spa has a tranquil setting and the massages were very good. I would happily come here again and recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Villa Kubu in Villa number 7 for our honeymoon. The staff are terrific, the accommodation cosy and comfortable with your own plunge pool. It feels very secluded. The day spa was directly opposite too, which was wonderful. Outdoor shower with warm water. Air conditioning. In-house restaurant can be relied on for good food. We also did a couple of the day trips they recommended, which we enjoyed. Booking process is easy and the website, great with lots of good pics.

We recently got back from 4 weeks at Villa Kubu. It was pure bliss and paradise!
The Villas, the staff, the food, the SPA, the management! We could not have picked a more perfect place to stay.
We tried three different Villas and I have to say that I can't pick a favorite, the were all fantastic but Villa Zero has a master bedroom that I want to have in our future dream house.

If there was a problem with something, like a lightbulb needed to be changed or something like that, the staff were there straight away to fix it. Nothing was too hard, everything was possible. They all made us feel super-special by knowing our names, always smiling and always wanting to help. We are already planning our next trip back! We Miss you all at Villa Kubu. Terimah kasi!!!! From Betina, Jarkko, Lucas, Beja and Janne Kortelainen!

Room Tip: Villa Zero is very modern and posh, Villa 6 has got a fabulous outdoor-area! Villa One is great Bal...

I recently stayed in one of Villa Kubu's Villas. I could not rate the the experience any higher! The experience was truly mesmerising. The staff were incredible and the service 5 star. The Villa provided everything that was expected and more. We stayed for a week and we did not want to leave. I have already started planning my next trip to Bali to stay at Villa Kubu.
