Recent Bali reviews
"My husband and I made this recent trip to Ubud as a getaway before the arrival of our baby in September. Villa Madu was the perfect backdrop for everything we could have possibly needed and wanted. The villa is surrounded by gorgeous greenery with a magical ravine down below. The rooms are decorated with beautiful artwork and the bathroom of the downstairs bedroom is amazing! You are literally taking a shower outside! The staff was more than welcoming and made me feel even more special since I am pregnant. We had fresh fruit and smoothies every morning and Nurdi, Wayan, Dewa and Jurro would regularly check in with us to see if we wanted anything else. We ate and ate and ate! In the 8 nights we were there, my husband had 2 massages that were set up for him in the serene garden at the property. I have been to Ubud many times before but this was my first time back after 16 years and although Ubud has changed tremendously and become a yoga Mecca open to tourists and shopping, Villa Madu allowed my husband and I the opportunity to enjoy what I remembered from so long ago in every comfort imaginable. I would absolutely recommend Villa Madu to anyone and everyone. Would go back in a heartbeat!"

"My good fried Ann and I spent 3 weeks at Madrigal Guest House and we could not have asked for a more peaceful place. We loved the open floor plan and spent a lot of our time on the beautiful veranda (we stayed on the lower floor). Wonderful decor and fabulous garden, very clean and well maintained. I loved all the tile floors and large windows with large glass doors opening up to the wonderful wrap around porch. As two younger women traveling abroad we felt very safe here.
Madrigal is perfectly located, far enough away from the main street to be peaceful and yet as close as a 5 minute walk to the market, 2 minutes to Warungs (restaurants) and about 15 minutes to Ubud (taxi to Ubud $3-$5 USD). We took a long walk up through the rice fields above Ubud but also enjoyed the sun coming up over the rice field off our veranda every morning w/our coffee.
Bill was fabulous, welcoming us and making us feel part of the family. Ann had gotten bit by something on the eye and he went to the market to get medicine for her and coils for us to burn on the veranda. Made' was such a great cook, always asking us what we wanted for breakfast, remembering what fruits we liked best and always having it on the ready. I had gotten sick right before arriving and had a bad cough, Made' made me fresh watermelon juice every day insisting it would help...and it did! We met her daughter Kadek and we all had some laughs visiting and getting to know each others cultures.
Wsukia, is Bill's driver and was just a text away if we needed him. He is a busy guy, so when we wanted an all day adventure we made plans ahead to make sure he was available. We took 3 separate trips to different parts of Bali and he was very knowledgeable and funny. He also set up transport for us to go Gili Meno and on a cycling tour. It was very helpful and affordable.
I try to be objective with reviews and coming up w/ something I didn't like is a tough one here. Air conditioning on a few days would have been nice but this was really not a bother with the open air windows and ceiling fans (which the ceiling was beautiful to!) We did have a couple of geckos that hung around on the walls, they were startling at first but became our friends.
We miss you Bill, Ari, Made', Kadek and Wsukia! It was a life changing trip for me and Madrigal made it even better. We will be back! Barbara & Annie"
