We spent 5 glorious days in the Jepun Villa over New Year. We were blown away by the style, size, view and general vibe of the villas and their surroundings. Our 2 kids had very comfy beds in the huge lounge area, which was separate from the bedroom. We loved the quirky touches in the villa, especially in the massive bathroom and we enjoyed the outdoor shower.
We also loved the communal relaxation area at the pool, where we spent many hours having afternoon drinks while the kids played in the pool. The pool is not big, but it is big enough. The villas/bungalows are cleverly set apart, so each has good privacy. We travelled with another family who were in the biggest villa (Papirus) which was also stunning.
The staff, including the drivers, was always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and spoke good English.
Of course, we loved the ice cream! We were amazed how many travellers made a special trip to Gaya just for the ice cream. Many would then venture into the pool area and commented on its beauty and great views.
We could not fault the restaurant, but loved trying the restaurants closeby, eg. Minami was fantastic!
We have stayed at a few places around Ubud over the years. Gaya is definitely up there with our favourites!
