“Great value, don't eat in the restaurant though”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

We stayed in Gaya for 4 nights. Our room was spacious and the bathroom felt surprisingly luxurious. We got a great value deal and felt it exceeded the price we paid, however one note of caution - the restaurant was very disappointing. Having tried both their Italian fare and their Indonesian cuisine, neither were of a similar standard to what you could get in town. The gelato shop is a different matter and is wonderful.

Room Tip: Be careful if you are after privacy to not book the rooms that are next to the common living room ar...

We've stayed in Gaya Villa last year. It is a beautiful, quiet and private place with spacious rooms. The view was great and our room has a big terrace with outdoor space. It's like living in a house with a small yard. Next to the building but still in the same area, there's Gelato ice cream, it's really to die for! we look forward for our next stay in May!

It is just after 7am, we are currently lying in our bed, the sliding glass doors on three sides of our bedroom are open to the gardens and jungle that surround us, the strange sounds of Balinese fauna echo around the hillside and we are contemplating a swim in the natural infinity pool before breakfast.
Our children are just stirring from their cosy beds and in seconds they'll have their swimmers on and be giggling and shoving to be the first to the pool. Aaaaaahhhh, it looks like we'll be able to spend some time alone with the dragonflies and birds while the kids play safely.
We'll order breakfast in our room, I think. The kids will ask the passing waiter "Is that for us?" and follow the friendly staff carrying trays of wonderful Mie Goreng back to our villa.
Gaya villa is a magical place, absolutely beautiful, homely but luxurious. Surrounded by lush, green jungle, our villa a superb mix of contemporary and old, clean, hard stone and gnarly, soft timber.

The best hotel of our Indonesian-Malaysian trip :) It's not in the center of Ubud, but you can rent a motorbike for 5$ per day (10-15 min from hotel to Ubud center).
Villas are unique, every villa has its own design. We stayed in Jepun villa and it was perfect! Very spacious, very romantic and beautiful, with 2 rooms and a large sanitary room, privately located, with small garden. All walls are made from glass and you can also open them and stay at the "open air". I didn't want to leave the hotel! And also they have a great Italian restaurant: you should try their pastas and gelato! Breakfast was also good, big portions of nasi goreng or mie goreng or pancakes, you can have it in the restaurant or in the room. And try their spa: it's very small (one small room for 2 persons with a nice view), but massage was great.

Certainly recommend it, especially for honeymoons. It could be one of highlites of your trip!

Room Tip: Jepun villa was perfect

Gaya Vilas, Sayan Ubud Jan 2013
This quiet position on a ridge near Sayan was pure Bali.
Coconut palms, huge bamboo stands, flowers and jungle all around us.
Our one bedroom villa, Jepun, was fabulous.
Our own private garden where butterflies abound.
A couple of quirky additions to the resort make it special.
A big art space with changing exhibitions
A bright, modern and inviting gelato bar (yum) and a very good Indo- Italian open restaurant that sits up high overlooking the jungle and catches the breezes. The cappuccinos are good.
Eating at the restaurant we often got little free surprises like cookies, tuna sesame balls, Italian bread and grissini.

We took a 4 hour trip with Made to Mas to visit the family compound, studio and gallery of the best master wood carver in Bali… Njana Tilem Gallery.
We also visited the amazing Puppet and Mask museum near Mas.
Made added a few good surprises to our trip. Wonderful views over the Sayan valley and a visit to a temple where lots of villagers, both men and women were preparing for a festival and feast day. Also a visit to a huge family compound/farm called Negari where they grew tea, coffee and a great number of herbs and spices.

There is a free shuttle to Ubud, which is about 10 minutes away, on the hour or a cab ride for $5.
Families with young children would like this place as some villa gardens are securely fenced and away from the pool.
It is also within the area where the popular Elephant Park and The Bird Park are situated.

Room Tip: The newer rooms are the ones to look for. Jepun was lovely!

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!

We stayed at Gaya Villas for 4 nights over the holidays and had a great experience! We were in 2 rooms: Villa Kayu near the pool and Grace House which has an outdoor dining/living areas and both were wonderful! The decor is eclectic and unique, the setting and view is lush and peaceful, and best of all with only 7 rooms it is quaint and quiet. We ate at the restaurant one night and it was excellent food for very reasonable prices. We did have the gelato every single day and I would venture to say it's better than anything I've had in my trips to Italy!! The shuttle to Ubud is necessary since it's too far to walk there so it is unfortunate that it is only free until 4pm.
