Recent Ubud Area reviews

  • Great garden, gorgeous views....

    "We loved staying here. The garden and views are beautiful. The house is full of great art and furniture. It is wonderful to wake up and take in the fantastic views from the great big upstairs bed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The house is clean and comfortable as well as very cool. The location is fantastic - out of the hustle and bustle but within walking distance to lots of good places to eat. A lovely place to stay!!"

  • So thankful we spent time here - it's sublime!

    "I cannot say enough and be thankful enough for having spent 5 nights here whilst in Ubud. The staff are beautiful: so helpful, gracious and kind hearted - they are the epitome of the beauty you find in Bali. The Villa is perfectly located: near restaurants, shopping, in fact everything is within such a short walking distance. We stayed with 3 small children and they thought it was such an adventure: for them i imagined it was like something out of Robinson Crusoe as we stayed in jungle topped canopy bedrooms. The main living area is like living outdoors - such a beautiful, relaxing way to while away time reclining on day beds and bean bags galore. If you are expecting some schmick, ultra modern, minimalist place from the pages of vogue homes magazine - don't stay here. Instead it offers the most tranquil, authentic, outdoors living, outdoors showering, Balinese experience. It's so quiet and is hard to believe you are in fact nestled right in the heart of Ubud. We will return here again and again and again. It felt like home and the staff felt like family after 5 days here. Thank you Villa D'Abing!"

  • Beautiful Villa in a quiet area

    "Beautiful villa, great location, friendly staff. We spent a full month in Rumah Belibis and loved it. Nice pool, big comfortable bed and bathroom, a moat full of fish, loved the views of the rice fields and palm trees out back, and found the antics of the ducks endlessly entertaining. Wayan, the housekeeper/manager, was very helpful and always available by phone/text whenever we needed anything and came in to clean twice a week. Wifi is by rechargeable stick and worked very well. Don’t waste time looking at the TV channels, or channel, but their DVD and book collections are enormous. The kitchen doesn’t quite live up to the impressive care and attention to detail that was paid to the rest of the house, but is good enough. There are a number of good, reasonably-priced restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk, although that walk can get a little dull after a while. Café Vespa is only about 5 minutes away and is a popular lunch option. They were also building a small café just outside our door while we were there that will probably be open soon. We loved the fact that you could go out the gate and be in the middle of the rice fields within seconds - you can walk north to Terra Cotta Restaurant in 15-20 minutes, or cut across the fields to reach Jl Sanggingan the back way and make it a loop. There are a number of small shops and a cheap, efficient laundry within a couple minutes’ walk, and Bintang Supermarket is only 15 minutes away. It takes 30 minutes to walk to Ubud Palace, then another 5-10 to get to most of the restaurants and bars. There are plenty of taxis that will charge 50,000 to Ubud (maybe less if you are good at bargaining), or you can rent a moped for 24 hours for the same price. Almost every day we spent an hour or two wandering back roads and fascinating rice field paths, choosing among an infinite variety of routes. If you are looking for night life this might not be the ideal location, but if you are like us and prefer the quiet streets, good views and endless opportunities to roam among the rice fields then this place should suit you perfectly."

  • Luxurious but Wild, Escape from The Mundane, Get Inspired

    "I live in NYC. This place is Opposite Land. Rumah Cahaya will obliterate your stress. Need a creative sabbatical? Stay here for a month and explore the interior of Bali. There's a rainforest on one side of the villa and rice paddies on the other. We woke to bird calls and luscious views, and fell asleep to gecko chirps and faint gamelan drumming--beautiful and hypnotic. On the second day, my niece said,"WHY are Maya's breakfast eggs so good?" And then we saw the chickens and hens running through the paths of our rice paddies. That curving path is like something out of National Geographic for Kids. My two young kids saw lizards, ducks, roosters, groundhogs, mice, frogs, butterflies and snakes (butterflies are bigger than the snakes). Note: Rumah Cahaya is not for the squeamish. They’re all here, creatures great and small. Everything is benign. There’s an ongoing symphony of chirping and burping and some of it comes from the corner of the living room. The villa’s best features are the open air master bathroom and the eagle's nest, a tiny tower. Every night I’d bathe under the starriest skies—no light pollution here. After a really hot day, you bathe in the sultry perfume of frangipani. Upstairs, from the eagle's nest, you sit at an L-shaped desk while peering into a lush rainforest. The ordinary world falls away. I couldn’t stop taking panoramic shots of the rice paddies. At night if you leave the tower windows and doors wide open, a little bat might swoop in and out. My son loved that! The staff: Maya makes amazing breakfasts but she’ll let you know (by being late) that she prefers 9am to earlier. Finally we just had her make us lunch instead. She’ll also take small parcels of laundry and return them next day. Juli, the informative driver and responsive house manager, aims to please. One day he took us to the market and I left a bag of caramel cakes somewhere. He saw my disappointment and the next day came with other caramel cakes, refusing compensation. (One day, though, Juli’s brother pinch hit and charged us an arm and a leg. So, substitute Juli at your own risk!) The owner Bruce has tastefully created a luxurious home yet still in keeping with the local vernacular--wooden doors, transoms, cabinets, and wardrobe are carved with Balinese motifs, and altars and recessed nooks with Hindu statuary grace the property. My kids had so much fun exploring it all that they didn’t even realize they were learning. The same goes for me."
