Our family with 2 kids stayed at Umajati for three nights. Time at this Retreat was just wonderful. The 2 houses are beautiful with sounds of nature at night and morning. Meals are individually cooked on the spot and served. I enjoyed eating with my family in the garden very much. Activities like cooking and offering making were also wonderful....

We spent a total of 7 nights at Umajati and all I can say is "wow." There are many things to like about it, so, where to start? First I would say that it is immaculate, clean, and beautifully landscaped. It's also intimate. There are only two houses to rent, so it feels like you are alone in the jungle,...

It's absolutely perfect! Words can't do justice to this place! The resort is composed in fact by 2 villas placed in an unforgettable piece of nature,with a wide spaced reserved for the nature, with an open spaced concept in building and a total blending in of the nature - walls that close up to open up in the luxourious greenary,...

There has been rain in the evenings of late (like Camelot!) and so the gardens are particularly beautiful and full. It is such a pleasure to have people like yourself come and appreciate the fact that Umajati is surrounded by beautiful nature. We actually intentionally built the accommodations on only 30% of the land so that we would share the...

We were on a 12 week around the world trip and Ubud was week 11. Needless to say we needed some relaxation and peace. This place was perfect! In fact, after going through all the places we stayed in Europe and Asia, we both agreed this was our favorite of all! The location is exotic, surrounded by lush vegetation and...

I stayed two weeks in Umajati Retreat as I was participating in a natural dyeing workshop in the adjacent dye garden and studio. It's probably the most beautiful place I have ever lived. The architecture of the old wooden houses, hand carved details everywhere, excellent quality traditional interior - handwoven textiles, bamboo/rattan furniture - , beautiful garden offering splendid views...

Our stay here was amazing! I have been to Bali countless times, and this one is definitely one of the very memorable. It has such different feel to the other villas in Bali, that extra attention to detail and not to mention the crazy unbelievably beautiful surrounding nature. Makes everything 100x cooler! We stayed in the Bugoharjo house and it...

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The house is great, and it has every thing you need. Great beds, great showers, nice garden with swimingpool, good WiFi.

It was wonderful to see how the children were learning to swim and that they had the help of the pool noodles - the lovely flowers that flutter into the pool entice children to explore the water and the way the frangipani sits on the water surface.
