These villas are very beautiful! You have a real sense of privacy in your villa with your private pool and beautiful bathroom (it looks exactly as pictured). We got a delicious breakfast every day! My only complaints are that the lighting in the rooms is not great, which made it difficult doing makeup and such in the morning. Also it is right next to farms so we had an early wake up call by roosters who liked to crow all day. That being said I don't regret my stay here, it was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful!
Been to Bali many times, stayed in different places over several years and this place is my new favorite. The pictures don't do this place justice it was better than pictured.
Private pool, deep, clean and with a relaxing fountain
Awesome air conditioning, better than the 5 star hotels we've stayed in bali
Comfortable bed, and the best smelling towels I've ever had
4 poster bed, with mosquito net (we didn't use it or need it)
10 mins drive from Ubud or 35 min walk
Free bike hire (ride into ubud took 25 minutes and its downhill all the way back)
Walking distance to one of the best restaurants in ubud
There are two free shuttles into ubud per day, they could offer to drive guests into town (or maybe we should have asked :-))
Tips for other travelers
Nearby Massage - Jaens Spa Ubud - does free pickup so book your massage and get a lift into town at the same time
Nearby Restaurants - Bebek Tebasari Resto - does free pickup (or walk 5 mins) and go and eat in a straw hut over the water looking over rice fields (best place to eat in ubud)
Flying in - This place offered free airport pickup (normally 35 AUD) and you can stop at a supermarket and pick up some bintang beer, food for your large fridge
We had our own little cabin with a private pool and a full kitchen, and we really enjoyed the experience. The staff was very nice, breakfast was good, and the garden was beautiful. The only reproach would be the design of the bathroom with lots of tiny stones and large stones to step across and the drain being under the rocks- essentially it means that the bathroom floor was constantly wet, so no wearing socks in there.
Spent 4 nights here as our first pit stop in Bali. Beautiful room and surroundings perfect place to recover from a long haul flight. Quite remote but Ubud is a 10 minute drive away. Breakfast was adequate but room service menu was limited. We hired one of their drivers (nyoman) for excursions and he was excellent. 650k for 1 day. The jungle was alive with noises day and night and it was great to hidden away for a few days with just fields and locals for company
We arrived here late in the evening so we could not see our surroundings immediately (the transfer from the airport was included). We found ourselves on a bumpy road between the trees, wondering where the driver was taking us. Both Lestaru 1 and 2 (second hotel with identical wooded houses recently opened just a few meters down from the original place) are tucked away, far from the noise of the busy street. Unfortunately they could not offer us any food or drinks anymore as the restaurant was closed but with a little persuading our driver went out to buy us a bintang. The bungalow was a gem with a nice comfy big bed and musquito net. Lighting could much be improved, there are not even night shades so the room lacks the atmosphere it deserves. Internet was fast and they offer cable TV with many English spoken channels like HBO. Bathroom on-suite with shower and bath tub and toilet with bidet. Best smelling towels in town! Half open kitchen with cooking facilities, large fridge and water dispenser. The large pool is not suitable for small kids as is has no shallow part (about 1.60m deep). Waking up in the morning was a nice surprise as we had a stunning view over the rice fields from our porche (I believe only this room has a view like that, we stayed in Lestaru 2). If there only were a comfy sofa here to relax on, this place would be almost perfect. Breakfast is good, there are 3 options to choose from. Staff member Agung took us to Kuningan ceremony nearby and arranged Balinese clothing for us. Thank you for the nice experience! Hotel is about 15 min drive away from the south of Ubud, beware of the traffic jams into town, streets are clogged nowadays! We rented a motorbike from the hotel. For the bike, like the car to take us to our next destination, they asked more than they should have. Booking through Booking.com was a bit of a hassle as Lestaru will contact you by mail after the booking to charge an additional fee of 3.5% of the total amount for credit card payment which is not mentioned in their booking.com conditions. I have booked many hotels through this website but never experienced this before.
We spend there 3 nights. In The place there are 3 Villas and a small reception. The location is a Little remote 15min by car to the Ubud, but thtas what we were looking for. They provide 2 free shuttle service at 11 and 16 one way. Villas are superr. Thos is 1 bedroom Villa with big bed in the middle. Everything is made from the Wood. Private pool is big,there is a big terrace when you can eat your breakfast. There are 2sunbeds and big sun umrella to chiil out. There is a open kitchen, with all facilities..they also provide water dispositor which was great. Bathroom is semi open, with big bathtub and a shower. Breakast is delivered to your room. You can choose from 3 options:English, indonesian and sweet. It was tasty. They didnt have any restarant but 15minutes of walk there is a great warung with bungalows on the water where you can eat. They provided us a menu wuth some food that we can ordered, but whem when we wanted to use that the guy told us there is no cook chef. The small reception is nit so good like in big Hotels. Usuallly the guy sleeps on the floor and you must Wake him up, we wanted him to arrange for us a ticket to fast boat to senegigi but it was too much for him, he just had offers to other destination but he tried :-) generally coming there you must know that is nit hotel but some kind of private Villas with breakfast and cleaning. We spend there a great time. Pool is amazing, Villas too. The price was really low. I can highly reccomend this place!
