“Ideal place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed at the Agung Khalia (villa 1) with my partner, his brother and sister-in-law in August - it was amazing. The service from beginning to end was impeccable. We were given a mobile phone on arrival to call for anything we wanted. From bringing more drinks to the villa, ordering dinner, a massage or a trip out.

My boyfriend and his brother went on a trip down a local volcano organised by Guru which they enjoyed a lot.

The villa itself was spotless and worth every penny, the bedrooms were comfortable, but the real jewel in the crown is the outside pool area and the lounge.

It's about a 10 minute car journey into Ubud town centre, which isn't an issue unless you want wild nights out. The villa is so peaceful (with the exception of the ducks in the surrounding paddy fields!) and really was the easiest place to relax in the world.

If travelling on your own you'd feel completely looked after and safe at the Agung Khalia, one of our group is planning when to come back!

“paradise”
Reviewed November 1, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

What can i say about Villa Aghung Khalia, its paradise. My friends and i after our research on TA booked Villa 1 .very easily online with Laura. From the moment we arrived we loved everything about it, although we had a bit of a wait at the airport to be picked up it was all explained and all was good.
We were welcomed with a cold drink, and from then on the staff could not do enough for us. It made such a difference to our stay. They would bring our breakfast by the pool every morning and ask about our plans for the day. Everything was arranged for us, excursions for the day and transport to and from any restaurant of our choice at night.
The rooms were all cleaned perfectly every morning and our washing done for a small charge.Our only regret was we only stayed for 7 days, wished we had booked for longer, but we all decided we will be back.

“Spacious villa in beautiful rice paddies.”
Reviewed August 23, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We had a lovely stay at the villa. It is very spacious, and could easily accommodate seven people. The service was very good and the owners have thought about many details, such as providing a loaner laptop computer and a cell phone so that you can call the Villa for pick-ups in Ubud. The shuttle service is well manned and we never needed to wait to go into Ubud., although pick up in Ubud depends on traffic volume but did not cause us any difficulties. One thing that is somewhat annoying is that the doors are very heavy, and will loudly slam shut if not left propped open. A lovely place to go to after the busyness of Ubud.

I feel like I don't want to recommend Agung Khalia ... I want to keep it to myself and not tell anyone about it. However, that would be unfair to the owner, who has built magnificent villas and employed some great local people. It would be unfair to Agung who took us on a walk through the rice paddies and let our kids play with his chickens. It would be unfair to the staff who took us to a largely balinese-only night market for a great meal of babi guling (roast suckling pig). It would not be fair to our friendly drivers like Ketut, and staff like Dewi and Nyoman who made our stay so nice. Or our gardener who came to hand-cut our beautifully manicured lawn with a sickle each day.

The villas are a lot bigger than they look, and the tropical gardens are beautifully manicured. The villas are situated in the middle of lush green rice paddies, only a short drive from Ubud. Drivers are on hand to take you into Ubud and pick you up whenever you want.

Agung Khalia is not a 5-star hotel, but it is a beautiful tropical villa set in loveley landscaped tropical gradens, with a beautiful pool.

The people are beautiful, the villas are superb, the location is great and the value for money is fantastic. Enjoy your stay!

“Could not have wished for better”
Reviewed August 12, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

After much searching on the internet, we chose Villa Agung Khalia as the place to stay for a family celebration. We hired Villas 2 and 3 as we needed six bedrooms, and the pool separating the two was reserved for our use.
Laura, who handled all the reservation details, was incredibly patient as we changed our booking back and forth due to different members of our group altering plans and vacillating. She was always friendly and helpful!
On arrival, we were met at the airport by staff drivers in two vehicles for the trip to Ubud. They organised all the luggage for us and produced bottles of cold water for us to drink, which were very welcome as we were acclimatising to the heat from a much colder Australia.
On the trip to Ubud our driver was very helpful, answering our questions along the way and making us feel safe in the somewhat chaotic traffic!
Arriving at the villa we were greeted by the manager and other staff members and shown to our villas, where more cold drinks awaited us. The villas themselves were amazing, surrounded by lush gardens within the walls and rice paddies outside. Two stories high, the master suite, living/dining room and kitchen were downstairs and two more suites upstairs with a large sitting area and balconies. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and fans. The master suite had an airconditioner which could be turned on for an additional cost, but we found the fans were more than sufficient to both keep us cool and discourage the mosquitoes.
The rooms were all comfortably furnished and spotless. Staff cleaned thoroughly every day and laundry could be arranged for a small fee. Masseuses could also be arranged to attend personally at the bales in the garden, of which there are several.
Breakfast (included in the tariff) was served in an outdoor dining area overlooking the rice paddies at the far side of the complex, just off Villa 3. Choices were good as was the food itself, and coffee, tea and juice constantly available. If we preferred, breakfast could have been served at our patio tables by the pool, as was lunch and snacks. When some in our group were leaving at 3am for a volcano climb, the staff came a little earlier with coffee and toasted sandwiches, above and beyond IMO :-)
We also had a couple of dinners at the villa, which we enjoyed.
Transport was available all day until 10pm at no cost to shuttle us in and out of Ubud itself, and we were given a pre-programmed mobile phone to call the villa for pickup when we were ready to come back. For a small fee we could have stayed out after 10pm but we were ready to come back by then as we had a baby in our group. Longer trips and tours could be arranged with the staff for a fee depending on distance.
The staff really made our holiday fabulous, the villa itself was great but the staff were all so friendly and obliging, nothing was too much trouble. During meals if baby was fidgetty one or another staff member would smilingly cuddle him and take him for a walk around the gardens so his parents could enjoy their dinner in peace. If we suddenly wanted coffee or a snack, we had but to ask. They also helped with restaurant reservations and recommendations. If only staff here at home were half as good :-)
We were very sorry to leave at the end of our time in Villa Agung Khalia, and hope very much to return. Fellow guests in Villa 1 have stayed there several times, I can totally understand why. It was so restful and relaxing there.

The perfect location for a relaxing holiday. 10 minutes by car from the centre of Ubud and completely quiet and isolated when you return to the Villa. Agung, his family and staff go out of their way to ensure that you do have the PERFECT holiday. They even arranged fireworks for my son's birthday celebrations. All our excursions were arranged by the staff at significantly lower prices than we were quoted before leaving Australia. You will not be disapointed with a stay at The Villa Agung Khalia

“Villa Khalia Agung is a treasure!”
Reviewed February 6, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

people found this review helpful

From the moment you arrive you know you have made a choice to have an unforgettable experience. The Villas are stunningly beautiful, and sparkling clean. The staff is courteous and attentive, seemingly at any hour of the day or night. You are surrounded by hundreds od acres of rice paddies, yet only 10-15 minute free drop off to all the shops, spas and culture of Ubud.

We stayed in the HONEYMOON VILLA, which is gorgeous with a nice pool. Villa not much larger than a European Hotel room, with nice Veranda. A little small for us, but attractively priced. Just dont expect a huge living space.

We transferred to VILLA 1 for 3 days, and it was monstrous. I'm guessing 400sm, but not sure. Pool is huge and clean and inviting! Bedrooms Air Conditioned, Breezes flow through the house. Relaxing and spacious.

Agung and "Guru" (Nengah) will take good care you. Dewi (some call her Debbie) serves a basic but tasty hot breakfast with a smile.

Some Ideas:

I asked Agung to show me everything about cultivating and harvesting rice. This resulted in an impromptu 3 hour walking tour that started with planting, transplanting, weeding (I tried this in the mud for 15 minutes- wouldn't want to make a creer of it), all the way to harvest and processing.

Most tourists at some point see a traditional Balinese Dance and Music performace. We asked the staff what it would take to have one at the villas just for us. A 2 hour performance with barb b q and traditional costumed dancers, with large bamboo band including percussion set us back less than you would think. We did this the last night as a way to say thank you to the staff.

Also arranged for us was a 1 hour Yoga Class by an amazingly talented woman. Again, right at the villas, and very reasonable.

The Drivers were very good, and we never had to wait. Trips to town were way shorter than we imagined. 15 minutes tops depending on where you are going. We never felt isolated.

Owners communication was also prompt, helpful, and frequent. They really care about you and their staff and it shows.

SOME TIPS:

PHONE
Agung and Guru loaned us a phone so we could call when we needed a ride. I also needed to call the states for some important long conversations, and had spent over 500.00 US on "Resort Charges" in Seminyak. Agung too me to a phone store where I got an inexpensive phone and Sim Card. I could call globally for about 10 bucks an hour. We are new to distant travel, so we had no idea it was that easy. We will be taking this phone to Thailand later this month and just pick up a local Sim Card.

INTERNET
All Internet we encountered in Bali was slow by our standards, and there are backups and outages regularly. This is not the fault of anyone, it's just what it is. The WiFi here worked very well, and we had no trouble sending small pics or recieving email. Not fast enough for reliable SKYPE, which you don't need if you have a local phone sim card.

CRITTERS
I read every review here thoroughly before choosing, and saw one that mentioned a dirty bathroom. That's not exactly the case. When you are in the tropical climate, you will see some Geccos. They are GOOD! They eat the mosquitos. They also occasionally leave a little souveneir of their presence. We found one in the bathtub, which initially seemed like a cleaning issue, but after it was explained to us, we just laughed. We love Geccos.

AIR CONDITIONER
OK I am a wuss who lives in Seattle, where 70 degrees is warm. After a few weeks I became acclimated to Bali temperatures. Bedrooms are Air Conditioned. The air conditioner in the HONEYMOON SUITE did not seem to make it cool enough for me, at first. I asked, and the staff brought me a fan- that did the trick right away. Did not have any problem in Villa 1, in fact it was plenty cold in bedroom at night. Note to staff: Either I just got used to not being in Seattle, or Honeymoon Villa Air conditioner may be weak and/or need service.

TIPPING
Being from America, we would feel bad if we didn't tip. It is not required, and often not expected. We found that, thanks to Americans who have come before us, it is expected of us because we are American! :-) And that's OK. What we did in Bali generally was wait until the last day to thank the whole staff with a tip.
