“Lovely villa in the middle of ricepaddies”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

Great and cosy villa in the surroundings of Ubud far away from the crowd. Wayan, manager of Kusuma Sari Villa & Spa and his team are very friendly and more then willing to help you with everything. Very relaxed environment right in the middle of some rice paddies.

This small group of luxury villas is tucked away in a quiet and beautiful situation, above a river where the town of Sukawati ends and the rice fields begin. There's a pool where I spent happy hours reading in the water to escape the heat, listening to fabulous birdsong (a blue kingfisher likes to drink at the pool), whilst huge butterflies floated around. Flowers dropped off the flame tree into the water. You can explore the bustling town, unvisited by tourists except for its art market, or wander quiet paths in the rice fields. The people are amazingly friendly and welcoming. If you want to explore further, Wayan is an excellent guide. Food was always great, and the fresh tarragon tea one discovery I was able to take back home.

My friend & I stayed at Kusuma Sari Villa a week ago. We chose this one as this we'd like to spend a shopping day at Sukawati market and didn't expect such a warm and impressive welcome. The villa was so nice and spacious. It was right up from the river so we could hear nice water sound. We arrived the villa quite late but villa staff welcomed us very warmly. They are very service-minded staff. In the next morning, breakfast was excellent! and after that we met Wayan, the villa manager, he was so friendly and caring. He suggested what activities we could do and asked us what we preferred to do. We told him we loved shopping well so he took us to the market and recommended good shopping tips for us. If you love shopping, this market shouldn't be missed. The stuff was super cheap. Don't forget to bargain at least 50% and the deal always closed around 60% of the prices. We decided to spend the whole day there as it was raining as we couldn't do rafting in time. Wayan came to pick us up at 5pm he didn't have to do as sending us off was too great already but his service mind so impressed us. After that, we booked the hotel in Ubud (kinda regret that we didn't stay up at Kusuma Sari the following night). However, Wayan also again offered to send us at Ubud Hotel. We were so touching with this service that beyond his duty but he did from his heart. If someone asked me where should he stay up in Bali and he wants peace with warm and attentive service, I would definitely recommend Kusuma Sari.

We stayed in early April for 4 days based on the below Tripadvisor reports, our first trip to Bali, and can echo all previous comments. The villas and gardens are spectacular, and Wayan and his team have a true service orientation. Value for money compared to a large impersonal hotel in a tourist trap location this has to be all the way at the top. Thanks Wayan (&Scott) for sharing your dreams and allowing us into your piece of tranquil paradise. Hope to be back as soon as time allows.

We spent 5 nights at this villa at the end of February 2011. We stayed with another family & between us we had 6 small children. We absolutely loved our stay here & could not find fault. We spent alot of time relaxing around the pool which the kids loved (hence the adults loved too). Our gracious host Wayan (manager) took us out on a couple of day trips in a mini van (ie 20 mins to Ubud Monkey Forrest, lunch at Indus restaurant, drive to elephant park & another day trip to Sanur beach for lunch shopping which was also only 20 mins or so). There are a few small shops (stock up on bintang, snacks, drinks for the kids etc) & the art market within walking distance. You can order your lunch & dinner from the villa menu which was perfect for our two families. Rooms were well airconditioned & had small bar fridges. Each villa had both an indoor & outdoor shower. The gardens are absolutely beautufil, ponds & flowering water lilies & lotus). There is a lovely rice paddy walk close bye. We really did love it here & wished we had booked it at the end of our trip to Bali. There is a comprehensive library with plenty of good books to read. DVD players in the rooms. Made (the cook) was nearly stolen & packed into our suit cases. Could not recommend this villa enough.

My fiancee and I stayed here for four nights. The Villa is part owned by an ex US statesman and a local family; the combination of which has resulted in a high class well executed design with first rate service. I honestly felt a little out of place here, living in England the service we take for granted as being first rate, Kasumasari prides itself on putting the customer first, before anything, and with a smile, this was a cut above first rate, they show you the kind of warmth that a family member would (or should). We were lent their computer so we could check on the internet, they drove us anywhere at any time we wanted, they asked us what we wanted to eat in advance so that their chef could source the ingredients from the market that day (so you could pretty much eat what you wanted), and we had fresh flowers decorating our bed, bathroom and lounge every day. I'd like to say a big thank you to all the staff their, it was the time of our lives and you do everything exceptionally.

Wayan and his staff of 7 were ever attentive to our every wish. The food was prepared deliciously to order. We enjoyed breakfasts cooked with local eggs, lunches and dinners with fresh vegetables and great preparation and presentation. The 2x daily room service was better managed than many 5 star hotels that we have stayed at. The grounds were beautiful, with the cascading terraces of lilly pad gardens. The infinity pool at the base of the property was an inviting oasis every day. If you are looking for a truly restful and quite boutique property, this is it. Thank you Wayan, et. all, for taking such great care of us.
