“Best Villa in Ubud - Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Villa Aruna is magical in every way. The gardens are wonderful, the pool so nice, the rice fields around the property are out of a picture book and then at dusk the fire flys come and join you for a drink.
Mika was just the perfect host/manager. He made sure every single detail was attended to and we were comfortable every day. He organised tours and bikes and gave us all the hot tips for local shopping. Having said this, all staff was fantastic - they just made our stay so perfect and special. i can not say enough about our experience here.
It is also just a short bike ride to Ubud. You pass the most amazing little villages, with just the most amazing and wonderful local food. The kids running around playing in the narrow dirt tracks and coming home from the river after a good bath. Simply magic.

Room Tip: Heres a tip, find yourself a room (any room) at Villa Aruna and you will have made the right decisio...

Oh I am the first reviewer? Anyway, I've just came back from Bali and the stay at Villa Aruna made it more difficult for me to leave the place.

Firstly, Aruna isn't exactly in Ubud central, but it's only a short 15 minutes drive away. Every morning, I'm greeted by the amazing sunrise in the village, with roosters crowing. The breakfast prepared by the staff is wholesome and yummy! Villa Aruna is nestled in a village and our neighbours were padi fields and padi fields. in the afternoon, i would lie in the placebo to read or chill in the pool and stare out to the padi fields.

The house is super big, clean and beautiful! I love it so much that I didn't mind spending the whole day at home. (yep we rather stayed at home than go to ubud town) Some people might think that the distance from Ubud central is a minus on the location. Personally, I love how far away we are from town because it was truly a retreat back to nature. no sound of running engines/ machines.

Ubud/Tegallalang shows you the real Bali. The villagers are extremely friendly. The next time I go to Bali, I definitely would not miss a stay at Aruna.
