Recent Bali reviews
Tranquil perfection amongst the beautiful rice fields of Ubud. Will definitely return.
"i have written this review more than a few times in my head. Even with my journalist background, finding the right words to describe Bali Buddha Villa have been elusive. We arrived in the pitch black and really could not be prepared for what would greet us in the light of day. Despite being only a five minute taxi ride to busy and bustling Ubud, the villa is the epitome of tranquility where you can dive into a good book, splash in the amazing pool, relax with your family (or just yourself) or simply marvel at the lush scenery.
Our entourage included our 12 year old daughter, 19 year old son and my 72 year old mother. We all fell in love not just with this stunning villa but also with Made who was far beyond our cook or cleaner. She became a friend who we relied heavily on to ensure every detail of our bucket list trip was take care of.
Our driver (also Made) was brilliant. He was there to greet us at the airport and fast became another friend we won't soon forget. He politely picked us up daily to show us the various sites of Ubud and beyond. His pride for Bali and the traditions and customs of the Balinese people was infectious. Made took us on the most amazing walk through the rice fields that are easily accessed from town. Every outing and drive was insightful and informative. We never felt rushed or pressured in anyway. His quiet demeanour was the perfect compliment to the laid back but often chaotic pace of Bali life.
After a day of touring or shopping, it was incredibly special to return to Robin's beautiful oasis in the rice fields and jungle. Made made us delicious breakfasts every morning and very often we asked her to make us dinners too. She took care of us on every level from doing our laundry to arranging for massages.
Robin very patiently answered all of my questions before our arrival...and there were a LOT. If I can offer any advice, don't be like me and try to hyper plan things before you get to Bali. Relax and allow yourself to slide into the pace of this beautiful island. You will be in excellent hands and will absolutely not be disappointed. Oh...and learn a little Bahasa or Indonesian. The true gift of Bali is her people. I wish we could have communicated better.
We are already looking forward to returning to this incredible villa. It was so much more than a place to stay. It was an important part of our dream holiday.
Suksma Robin, Made and Made...Wayan too. Hugs to Cleo too!"
