Had an amazing retreat at Bali Jiwa Villa in June 2012.

Amazing location and friendly service and the rooms and view were unbelievable.

Everything organised for us when we wanted (taxi to Ubud, massage in rooms etc.) and the breakfast and dinners there were beautiful. Used a Scoopon Travel voucher which was excellent value. TV in the villa had USB hard drive with movies and some music and a selection of books in there. Rooms cleaned twice daily and such friendly service from all of the staff there! Would go back and stay again in a heartbeat! Great getaway with my girlfriend!! Could not reccomend any more highly! Thankyou!!

We arrived at Jiwa Villas on a late afternoon and we felt immediately in love with this enchanting, gorgeous place. The villas are about 15 minutes drive from the hectic centre of Ubud and are the perfect please to charge batteries. The villas are built in the traditional, Balinese style and the decoration all over the place is wonderful and unique (my favourite was the orchid on the trunk). The food and service is excellent – we always had nice dinner in our own villa and the delicious breakfast was served with the magnificent view to the rice fields. It´s a magic paradise and we should have stayed longer than 3 days. For sure we will return.

Bali Jiwa Villas were even better than we hoped and the photos are accurate! We booked using a scoopon and had no problems at all with using the voucher and getting a date.

The villa is very roomy. The large bedroom is complete with comfy bed, air con, empty bar fridge to fill with your snacks and drinks, a writing desk, TV, safe, and lovely day bed. The doors open out onto the pool and view of the palms and mountains, which you can take in from the comfort of your bed in the morning! The bathroom is huge, with his/hers sinks, a hairdryer, tissues, face washers (so many places in Bali don’t seem to provide them) and plush towels. You have a choice of an indoor shower or an outdoor shower and bath. They provide quality shower gel and shampoo and robes. The outdoor living area had a coffee table, lounge, dining table, spare chairs, a buffet and poolside lounges.

I think it was the finishing touches that really made Bali Jiwa Villas that extra bit special – the furnishings are quality and generous, courtesy umbrellas are provided along with tea and coffee, bug spray & a selection of decent books. The three course dinner was lovely and the daily breakfast served at a time to suit you was a treat – eggs, basket of bread, fruit, yogurt, fresh juice etc. The staff are also wonderful, friendly & unobtrusive.

The only advice I have is if you want to stay walking distance from Ubud centre this isn’t the place – but the views, quiet location and quality make it worth the 15-20min drive (about 75,000 rupiah into town). You may need to plan your day a little more than if you were staying in Ubud centre as there aren’t loads of dining options nearby, being an area that caters more for locals than tourists, but this wasn’t hard. The drivers arranged by the villa were all lovely, spoke good English if you cant speak the local language and offered good prices - contact me if you’d like a contact email for a lift from the airport. The villas do have wifi but sometimes the signal wasn’t very strong – still pretty good considering the location though!

I would recommend this place for anybody looking for secluded romantic getaway. We had such an amazing time, words can't even describe the experience and the view.

The staff were wonderful and they looked after us very well. Desak and Dewi Thank you so much for taking care of us.

You will not regret of you choice to stay at Bali Jiwa.

Thank you to all the staff that made our holiday in Ubud amazing! :)

Room Tip: stay longer...

The surprise you discover upon being greeted on your entry leaves you breathless and never quite leaves you during your stay.

Barbara has ensured that the attention to detail from the outdoor bath room, the infinity pool, the tastefully selected decor and local artwork is completely complementary of the unimaginable beauty of the views over the traditional and fully worked rice paddies fields cascading down the valley.

Her staff are as friendly as could be expected, always attentive but always blending into the background ready to be called upon.

Bali Jiwa is a tad away from Ubud so expect a AU$7 car ride, yet if you want nothing but the enjoyment of the serenity of being away from the hustle and bustle of central Ubud, its there for the indulgence.

I promise myself I'll be back.

Each Villa has a king sized bed and an optional single. Great for a couple or even 3 mates.

In one word...Amazing.
