"Vacation for a busy family"
The environment is serene and green. The family can catch up with some time for light exercise and relaxing massages. Nice pool just near the room. The short trips during our stay was amazing and my family loves them. Beverages are superb, food is healthy. The staff are gentle and nice. Everywhere is clean. I don't mind a bit of travelling from the airport to reach this peaceful place.

"Yoga Retreat in Ubud. "
I absolutely loved the location of the retreat. About 15 mins from the center of Ubud and they accommodate a driver to take you there. The staff was so incredibly sweet, food was perfect, and the yoga facility is beautiful. Outdoors and right over looking a ride field. So life changing.

"Peaceful stay with great yoga instructor"
The yoga instructor was great !!! The staff at the villa was very helpful and nice. Massages that I got were superb, she had great hands and didn't just do a massage but tried to work on the areas that was more stressed out.

"Perfect little retreat! "
Staff members were friendly and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. They had no issues tailoring the schedule to our needs and were very quick to provide services. Food was fantastic, very relaxing and peaceful location and rooms are very clean and comfy. The super friendly cats that hang around sometimes are such a major plus.

"Amazing staff and excellent yoga teacher"
The staff was incredible! Especially the receptionists and young driver that made you feel so welcome and were always open for a chat.
The yoga teacher was also brilliant. He made sure that everyone was happy and challenged even though the yoga level in our group was very different.
I would definitely go back for a longer yoga retreat.
The rooms were so spacious and the hotel was very quiet and relaxing.

"Wonderful stay at Villa Ubud"
The staff Was very attentive and helped us with everything we asked about, from rescheduling activities, to taxis into Ubud, and service in the restaurant. The location, while not within walking distance to Ubud was very pesceful and had all the amenities we needed. The yoga instructor was also very good and knowledgeable.

"Wonderful Yoga retreat"
I appreciated the additional items to the retreat- 2x Massages, Temple tour and Bali Cooking class. As these are included in the retreat along with airport transportation the value of this retreat is incredible. For anyone contemplating to book, I advise to do so.

I loved everything. The staff were amazing..incredibly helpful, friendly. An Oasis in Ubud. A very healing place. The accommodation was amazing - clean, tidy, serene. I arrived seriously needing a break and left after 5 days feeling completely relaxed and alive. Highly recommend the cooking class and volcano walk.

"5 Day Yoga Retreat "
Everyone was so lovely and accommodating. The yoga instructor was very good at showing me the ropes for my first class I loved starting my day with yoga and meditation. My room was very comfortable and quiet. I loved being able to get a shuttle to the city so easily too! I loved laying by the pool and chatting to other guests. I felt very relaxed staying at the Villa Ubud.I

"A peaceful piece of heaven tucked away in Ubud "
I stayed here for the 6 day yoga retreat and had such a positive experience. The land is beautiful and well taken care off, the staff were so friendly and inviting, the pool is great, the yoga instructors were well trained, and the Villa Ubud team will go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care off. I had an evening flight and was able to use the room for an extra late checkout. The driver then picked me up from the centre with my suitcase and drove me straight to the airport. If you're looking for a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle and want to relax and unwind, this ones for you. Should you want the alternative, then they even provide shuttles to the centre every three hours. My biggest complement would go to the masseuse. She was an older lady who had magic hands and a healer in her own special way. All in all, I had a wonderful experience, met some great people, and would definitely come back!

"Amazing location and genuinely friendly staff"
I loved my stay from start to finish and it was hard to leave. From the beginning, the staff was super accomodating and flexible with the yoga retreat schedule. The location is serene and calm. Although not in the center of Ubud, the shuttle makes it easy to explore that part of Ubud. The food was good, and very traditional to Bali. The facilities were kept clean, and the hotel cats made the place even more charming. I am a solo female traveler and felt safe the entire time. I was pleased to meet other solo travelers as well.

"Perfect place to unwind, learn yoga & explore Ubud"
My daily yoga classes were great, Lily our teacher is the loveliest person. Also the adventure tours included in my package, especially the Mount Batur sunrise trek. The food is amazing. The staff all so friendly and kind. I love spending time with the cats and baby kittens, so cute. The pool so warm - could spend all day in there and finally the best massages I’ve had while travelling.

"Lovely tranquil setting "
Hotel Villa Ubud was perfect for what I wanted - a peaceful getaway. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and so well maintained. The staff are lovely and very accommodating. The yoga was good but basic. I enjoyed it but more advanced yogis may want something more challenging. The organised trips were also good - the highlight for me was the sunrise trek up Mount Batur!

Lovely people who looked after us so well
from Australia, September 2017
The location is very quiet and secluded and the staff are lovely! My instructor was hired by the Villa - Sudarma and he was fantastic. The yoga terrace where we practiced was nestled at the back of the property overlooking the rice paddies. It was very calm and a lovely view. The tours organised were good too - the cycling tour and sunrise trek up Mt Batur was definitely a highlight.
from Netherlands, June 2017
Eigenlijk was alles aan dit retreat heerlijk. De tijd die werd genomen tijdens de yoga en meditatie om alles uit te leggen en te helpen/corrigeren waar nodig was voor mij als beginner heel fijn. De locatie is rustig, maar het is gemakkelijk om met de shuttle (of een taxi a 6euro) de drukte van Ubud op te zoeken. Het personeel is enorm vriendeljk en behulpzaam en zorgen dat jij je er echt thuis zal voelen.

"The place was fine but I think they need to put more work into their menu selection and basic communication. I was very much saved by the quality of the Yoga and Meditation instructor Nagurha Saduma He was very generous with both his time and knowledge ."
The pool and the yoga.

Hotel villa Ubud heeft een prachtige tuin en heerlijke kamers. Alle yogalessen, meditatielessen en uitjes waren goed geregeld, niets was te veel moeite. De medewerkers zijn allemaal heel vriendelijk en proberen je verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken. Het eten in het restaurant was ook super. Er was genoeg keuze en ook en menu voor het diner was erg gevarieerd en goed. Voor mij is geregeld dat ik werd opgehaald van het vliegveld en ook weer werd weggebracht naar mijn volgende locatie. Ook hebben ze een gratis shuttle service naar het centrum van Ubud op bepaalde tijden, wat ook erg prettig is. Naast alle leuke uitjes die via het hotel geregeld konden worden, was het ook heerlijk om lekker aan het zwembad te luieren. Ik heb het er geweldig gehad en ik ga zeker nog een keer terug!!

Good food, nice rooms, smiling and welcoming staff. Very nice place to stay to relax after a day of field trips. Approx 10min drive from Ubud centre, with 3 shuttles per day organized by the hotel (drop off and pick up). Last drop off/pick up a bit early (6pm) though.
Our stay in this hotel was in every way just wonderful! The service was excellent and the staff were really kind. The room was spacious and clean, and very cosy to stay in. The breakfast was the best we have had during our stay in Bali, and the restaurant of the hotel has a good price-quality ratio as well. Although it is a bit far from the center of Ubud, you can rent a scooter from the hotel with just 75k/day. Definitely coming back if we're ever going to stay in Ubud again!

Be treated like king and queen in this beautiful jungle escape. Everything you need is here. The service and friendliness of the staff are far beyond any corporate hotel I've stayed at. They really are sincere and want you to relax and enjoy your time with them.
We stayed here just before they closed for reservations in November 2016. Our room was beautiful and so clean. I struggle with mozzies, so really appreciated the intact mosquito net over the bed, as well as the mosquito plug in the diffuser in the room. The grounds of this hotel are lovely and the food was very nice.The service was fantastic, we had a number of functions in Ubud town and nothing was too much trouble for the staff in assisting us in getting to and from our events easily and without hassle.
Was upgraded to a room facing the pool. It is quiet and relaxing and the property is beautiful. To be treated like a king at an affordable price. A bit far out from Ubud but the hotel does provide shuttle service to and from Ubud. Thank you, Lili for the arrangements. It was a perfect quiet getaway for couples.
