Our stay at Pondok Umalas was so much more than we expected. Dian, the manager, was wonderful. Before we arrived she scheduled shuttles to pick us up at the airport and arranged for a scooter rental for the week. Once we arrived, she booked massages for us in our own room. The massages were great and very inexpensive, 135,000 for an hour. Another perk of staying at Pondok Umalas, the owner also owns a very delicious italian restaurant. Anything you order can be delivered and added to your hotel bill.
The rooms look exactly as the photos. There were no surprises. We stayed in a suite with a private mini pool. And loved the outdoor shower! I would however recommend if you are a woman, bring your own hair drier. The one they provided barely produced any hot air.
I felt that Pondok Umalas really went above and beyond at the end of our trip. I had asked for a very late checkout (6pm) and they were happy to allow. My flight was then post pond a few days because of a volcanic eruption. Pondok Umalas allowed me to stay there and even upgraded me to their villa because they needed to do some construction in our suite. The villa was beautiful!
Definitely coming back to Pondok Umalas when I return to Bali!

The structure is brand new, very pretty and in original style; the owner is very kindly and frendly; he can give you a lot of useful information and a real help to organize your journey in Bali and in all Indonesia. Don't worry for meals: the CASETTA, an italian cozy trattoria, will provide to satisfy your appetite with seafood, handmadepasta, and good wine.
We stayed in kembar villa for 40 days and enjoyed our stay in this astonishing villa. Perfect for creative activity, in a quiet area, facing Rice paddy. The swimming pool pool is perfect. The staff is very professional and kind. The kitchen is well furnished, the room are great and the outdoor bathrooms are beautiful and clean. It is closed to restaurants ( La Casetta with délicious pizzas) and warungs. There are shops and a laundry at short distance. You can hire à scooter to go to Batubelig Beach or Seminyak center at 10 mn from the villa. We would definitely recommand this place.
Everything is perfect, if you want to have a great time .. you should stay here.
Close to beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants (La Casona) in such a lovely and peaceful place ...
This place is decorated with the best taste, is charming and romantic and has lots of privacy and all the employees are very friendly
quiet and relaxing place in a short time from the central area. exotic style, very comfortable rooms, prompt service and above all sympathy and kindness
Pondok Umalas is a really nice place to stay in Bali, close enough to Seminyak (30K RP) in a quiet nice local area.
The rooms/village are big, clean, fresh and very nice.
The service is amazing, they help you with everything with a big smile.
My wife and I had the best time we could imagine at Pondok Umalas!! It fullfilled all our expectations for a Balinese holliday. The House is decorated with so good taste that I would built my own house just like that!! Every detail was perfect. The service, the rooms, it was all 5 star!!
Bali is a paradise by itself, but we felt so comfortable inside the house that didn`t boder us to stay in during rainny days.
It was perfect!! I will recommend it to anyone, and definitely we will came back there.
As balinise people say: Pondok Umalas ir BAGUS SEKALI!!
