Kubu Bali features beautiful grounds and some seclusion away from the busy thoroughfare in Candidasa. However, this property is showing some age and seems poorly managed. Most of the lighting in our room did not work, the bed smelled musty, and the pool needed more than a good skimming. We did enjoy the setting and had fun playing badminton on the premises. I'm not sure if there is a better run accommodation in Candidasa, but this one seems to be suffering from a downturn in business and inadequate investment in upkeep.

I stayed in Room 111 where their Home page photo was taken (that the hotel staff told me).
The ocean view was beautiful, just you need to clime145 stars to get this room.

This hotel set in the Nature so if you like a Boutique hotel, go somewhere else. There are many 'monkeys' around, therefore you should not leave anything at your terrace. You might encounter insects or animals(?) that you can see trace of it.
So you realise that you are in a room made by natural products.
(Imagine what happened.)

The shower of Room 111 seemed new, so it was hot and comfortable. I wished the towel could be softer, but it's OK, I should not compare 5 stars hotel where I stayed before going to Kubu.

I took their room service twice, but the taste was not special.
I liked the food of a restaurant calls 'Balissa' at Candidasa village where quite many people were on the quiet season.

Well, I recommend this hotel for true Nature lovers.

Kubu gets a really positive review in the Rough Guide stating that it comparable with Tegal Sari in Ubud - where we were previously and had a great stay - so were looking forward to our one night there.

It was awful. The room was filthy - moth-eaten curtains, insect nests in the mosquito net, shabby towels, dirty light switches; very poorly lit with the light in the (outdoor) bathroom not working at all.

The room was surrounded by ponds that were heavily populated with both extremely noisy frogs and a plethora of mosquitoes.

To top it all off the staff were very surly - first time we have encountered this in Bali. The porters complained bitterly about carrying our bags to the room, and the receptionist over-charged us for a transfer the following morning to Padang Bai (10 minutes drive) to the tune of IR100,000!

The whole place has a feeling of decay and neglect -needless to say, I wouldn't recommend Kubu!

Similarly I wouldn't recommend Candidasa - if you can find somewhere Padang Bai is far nicer, and has a beach!

Fantastic hotel, (you can get much better up the road at Alila Manggis but then you're going to be paying through the nose) - this is cheap and doesn't compromise on much. The rooms are large, clean, staff lay little flowers on the bed daily in patterns! Most rooms are up your own little set of steps, and have massage bed outside. I had an hour long massage, i was severely sunburnt and the lady chose oils to sooth it, i could finally move again afterwards! And it was about £3. Perfect. Breakfast is basically fruit, egg, bread etc. But the view is great as its really up high, over the pool, loads of plants, and then the sea. The most picturesque hotel i stayed at in Bali with tons of plants, water features and water lillies, little meandering paths up a hill - friendly staff too. The area isn't great - a few restaurants and shops, car hire place, not a whole lot to do there though but who needs things to do when you're staying somewhere like this!
Totally unique hotel.

Just returned from 17 days in Bali of which 4 nights were at the Kubu Bali Hotel. The Hotel is a serene stay in beautiful gardens withy lush gardens, koi ponds and a refreshing pool rimmed with tropical flowers.

Our room was spacious and comfortable with a wonderful indoor/outdoor shower, large patio and authentic Balinese furniture. Hotel is complete with wandering Long Talied Maquaques and a 4 1/2' Lizard but only if youre lucky.

The hotel is not a 5star hotel but the ammenities it lacked ( hair dryer, tv, wifi, etc) were more than compensated by a truly peaceful stay and a resort staff who seemed unable to do enough to attend to your needs or to make you feel welcome.

Having stayed in the 5 stars of Nusa Dua, do yourself a favour and see some true Bali and a stay at ther Kubu Bali Resort.
