"My family of five stayed at Robin's lovely Bali Buddha Villa in June of 2016. Although we arrived after dark, we could tell right away that there was a serene vibe about the place. It truly feels as if you are a world away, even though you are a relatively short drive into the center of Ubud. Our girls stayed in the lower bedroom of the main house, which had plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. My husband and I stayed upstairs in the "master", with a nice view of the garden and small balcony. Both of these bedrooms have A/C, which was a welcome treat in the heat! The only drawback was the fact that the only access to the second floor bedroom was via a narrow spiral staircase, making it impossibly to heft a suitcase upstairs. We ended up leaving our suitcases in our daughters' room, which was less than ideal but workable. Our son was thrilled with his bedroom, located upstairs in a separate building -- almost like a "treehouse", which he found to be a great hideaway. Unfortunately, he was eaten up by mosquitoes as there is no A/C in this room and lots of gaps in between walls and roof. He didn't seem to mind much, but I think it is important to note.
The staff of this villa are wonderful. Made comes each morning to prepare a simple breakfast (although we got her to make some delicious Mie Goreng one morning, which was exceptional), and tends to the housekeeping aspects. She is such a sweet and lovely person. The driver, Wayan, became a wonderful resource for us during our stay. He picked us up at the airport (included in stay) and then also drove us to various sights around the island for the duration of our time at the villa (for additional, but very reasonable cost). He patiently answered our many questions, and provided us incredible insights into Balinese life and culture. We found him to be a fabulous companion during our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief time at Bali Buddha Villa!"
