“Highly recommend”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed with a friend and the place was so beautiful that we barely wanted to move from it. With the river close by, and water throughout the compound, a mini climate was created. A breeze was almost always coming thru and the villa was cooler than in town. Beautiful gardens. Surprisingly few insects (probably due to fish, frogs and geckos). Resident squirrel was very cute. Staff were excellent. We had them cook for us and the food was great. Massages from the local village (provided onsite) were great. Totally recommend. Its a minimum 15 minutes out of Ubud, so if that's a problem then don't stay here. We prefer to be out of the hustle and bustle and choose when we want to go in, so this was ideal.

“Peaceful retreat, on the doorstep of Ubud”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We were seeking a relaxing, quiet location (with no barking dogs at night), and we certainly found it. The 7 nights that we spent were pure bliss, and exactly what we needed with the villa being well beyond what we anticipated from the photos and descriptions. From the organised airport pickup, welcome dinner together with Tamarra and Paul, to the daily on-call driver and organised day trips - everything was perfect and always had our interests in mind. This was our 3rd trip to Bali, and this trip was meant to really spend time in Ubud and enjoy the Yoga Barn, good food and relaxation - all accomplished.
We were easily able to get into and out of town each day as we pleased with a simple call to Paul or Gede the manager to send the driver for us. We also organised a day trip for surfing, touring and visiting a few places outside of Ubud with the same drivers - all extremely friendly and very accommodating.
The villa was much larger than we had imagined, with a very large main room with ensuite bathroom (huge!), all fitted out with beautiful stone sinks, shower etc. The room does have very effective A/C although we generally were content with just using the fans.
The second set of beds is connected to the lounge a few steps next door from the main villa. They were also quite big, and looked very comfortable for another couple or the kids. We were only 2 so did not use this extra room.
The open-air lounge is very beautiful and comfortable, leading through to the full kitchen. We really only used the fridge and kettle for tea, but would have been fine for a full family meal.
The staff had offered to go shopping for us and prepare our dinner, but we never managed to stay home and always enjoyed eating out in town.
Overall, beautiful location, extremely friendly and inspiring hosts, and all that you need for a wonderful trip to Ubud. Will certainly be coming back for our 4th trip.

This place was magical. The buildings, far from the beaten track, were smooth, organic forms of painted plaster, beautiful, polished wood and natural fibres. The lounge area and kitchen sit in the open and share the surrounding lush greenery with all manner of exotic fauna. If you're looking for an opportunity to immerse yourself in the environment and be surrounded by Balinese wildlife then this is the place for you.
Unfortunately we got to spend only one night as my young children were terrified; none of us really slept, their nightmares disturbing an otherwise tranquil night.
Their bedrooms were in a separate building, with access to our room up a small set of steps. Okay, so it wasn't far but when you're 9 years old a trip to the bathroom in your own home can be full of dragons and demons in the shadows but here, with the frogs, ants, spiders and moths it was just too much. The walls and ceilings were home to all manner of bugs, two harmless but huge and scary looking Huntsmen spiders shared the shower. Try telling a 9 and 6 year old from the city that the bugs are harmless, that old line "They're more scared of you!" just doesn't cut it sometimes.
It was such a shame that we had to leave the next day, for us it would have been idyllic.
The owners were understanding and generous, offering us their driver to move us to our alternative lodgings. I've no doubt our stay would have been beautiful and interesting and I hope that one day, perhaps when the children are older, we have an opportunity to return.
I would recommend this if you're looking for peace and tranquility but only to those I know with a sense of adventure and with children made of stouter stuff than ours.
