This review is long overdue, but Bali Jiwa Villas is really the perfect place to stay in Ubud, Bali. It's about 15-20mins out of Ubud town by taxi but when you see the beautiful surroundings you won't regret booking this place. We were a bit hesitant on the drive up as it is rather remote, but when you are surrounded by rice paddies, clean fresh air, and your own private infinity pool you will feel as if you've stepped into paradise.

We used a scoopon voucher, and had no trouble making a booking. The service during the booking process and during our stay was an 11 out of 10. You'll need to plan your day in advance a bit (ie. give them plenty of notice for when you'll need a cab into town, order lunch/dinner in advance) because it is an exclusive and small place, serviced by few but excellent staff. One of the days both house staff had the day off, but one of the grounds staff was kind enough to go out of is way to take away food for us, we were so amazed by the service.

The rooms are beautiful. Comfy beds, indoor and outdoor showers, plenty of closet space, mini fridge, desk and wifi (not great connection in the room itself, but just outside was fine). Although we spent much more time in the private alfresco and pool area. The daily breakfasts were great and they served the tastiest homemade jams.

All in all we loved Bali Jiwa Villas! We'd recommend it to anyone who wants a more peaceful, relaxing and romantic stay in Ubud, Bali. It was good therapy for the soul. Hope we can visit again in the not too distant future.

Spent 3 days at Bali Jiwa Villas earlier this week. Had a marvelous stay. The villas are comfortable, the pool a good size and the location fabulous. If you are looking for someplace quiet and in the countryside, this is a great bet. If you absolutely have to go into Ubud, it's a 15-20 drive -- not long. Recommended.

We stayed at the magical Bali Jiwa for 6 nights for our honeymoon in November. When we arrived we were blown away by the exquisite stylish villa and its surrounds. The villa and its location truly is paradise. As I write this from my desk at work it feels like a life time ago we were sitting by the beautiful infinity pool and enjoying the peaceful and secluded tranquillity the villas offer. We really enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of the town as it really made it feel like a honeymoon where we had privacy and the opportunity to completely relax. The staff were absolutely brilliant and treated us like royalty throughout our stay. We had the most amazing time and couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Bali Jiwa for an unforgettable honeymoon, we can’t wait to come back!!

Bali Jiwa Villas are absolutely amazing and beautiful. We stayed at Bali Jiwa villas for the second week of our honeymoon and it was the perfect way to unwind and relax. There is no hustle and bustle of the cities and the locals are the most beautiful people. You really get a sense of the 'real' Bali here.
The staff at Bali Jiwa are very kind and friendly and their cooking is brilliant. You will not regret staying at these beautiful villas, they are peaceful, private and located overlooking the most beautiful rice fields. We can not wait to go back!

I found this charming hotel after a lot of searching in the internet. I was totally amaze with the view as soon as i arrived in the lobby. The villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. The private pool is spacious unlike other hotel who just provide a plunge pool where you can't swim in it. The service is wonderful and food are delicious. This will be the perfect place for you who would like to have the real tranquil getaway with nature in ubud.
