Sugars Villas
Ranked #174 of 609 Speciality Lodging in Ubud
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Nyoman never ceases to amaze me with his attention to detail and his willingness to make all his guests feel like a million dollars.
Only 3 bungalows all overlooking the rice padi with a family of ducks to keep you amused.
The Gone with the Wind Bar at the edge of the swimming pool provides a great little area to meet the other guests while having a beer or two.
Sugars serves one of the best breakfasts I have had in Bali.
Thanks Nyoman and John for another truly wonderful stay at your place.

sandy's is a small facility with four bungalows each with its own porch overlooking rice padi.
there is an infinity pool a meal area and small bar. the grounds are beautiful with golden coconut palms, lotus ponds, and flowers.
the staff was very accommodating, carrying luggage, serving breakfast on our porches, and placing beautiful flower blossom patterns on our beds while cleaning rooms.
There is a driver on staff that will take you into Ubud which is an over 10 min. drive.
There were a few ants in our room which i am sure the staff would have attended to if we had asked. We did not because it wasn't terrible and we were happy to be in such a peaceful environment!
We did not eat there except for breakfast which was very nice.
Please say hello to Neoman who it is our understanding, is co-owner, he is gracious and quite a philosopher!

Visiting Sugars is an experience as a tourist or an expat. I have probably spent more time there than anywhere else in Bali!
Nyoman is your host and is the heart and soul of Sugars. The meals are fantastic and the location is beautiful and quiet. I have stayed at Sugars a number of times and the attention to detail by the staff is great. You are also guaranteed to bump into interesting expats who have become part of the family there. Please don't miss sugars when you visit Ubud!

Go there! Sugars Villas is a beautifully located place near Ubud. If you want true balinese welcoming, wonderful views and genuine hospitality, visit Sugars Villas. What you will not get is typical tourism in center of Ubud. But John and Nyoman treated us like family, and Nyoman made Ubud the most fantastic experience. He took us back to his home, introduced us to his family and afterwards he took us to a ceremonial for the dead in his village, telling us all about the ceremony and culture. This experience could not have been bought with money. And Nyoman never wanted us to pay for it. We are so very grateful. Besides Nyoman is so helpful with alle kinds of bookings for daytrips and everything else you could ask for. You will not regret going there

If you've travelled a few times you realise the value of local knowledge and genuine hospitality and Sugars provides both in abundance. The location, setting and facilities had us relaxing the minute we arrived and then the warmth and friendliness of the staff and local customers had us not wanting to leave.

The Villa's themselves are top rate rooms with great air conditioning (and ceiling fans), very large ensuite bathrooms and your own private deck with day beds and beautiful views. The pool is top rate and brings in local residents which means you are able to get a range of ideas and views from people that live in Ubud. My son even came away with a couple of knew pen pals to write to after making friends with some of the local children, making his trip so memorable.

The location allows you to escape the hustle of Ubud and really relaxed, but access to town was still simple and very cheap so we didn't miss out on anything. In fact the short drive in and back also allowed us to see things staying in town simply can't, including daily routines of the locals.

In wrapping up, the service and staff at Sugars is warm and accommodating, the way things should be. It represents the friendliness and genuine happiness of the Balinese beautifully and provided a wonderful, relaxing and memorable trip. One I'll certainly be making again!

We arrived at Sugars a little shattered after a 'mixed feelings' stay in Kuta, which we realised (too late...) was not the venue to unwind at after a savage working year.

Sugars was the ideal spot to start relaxing, with the stress dropping off as we started unpacking in our delightfully and appropriately furnished villa facing onto the rice paddies. We soon discovered that Sugars is far more than just an idyllic spot. Nyoman and his crew spared no effort in making us feel at home and enabling easy-paced and insightful explorations of the Ubud area.

It quickly became apparent that the Sugars pub is a connecting place for an intriguing stream of ex-pats, who shared some interesting angles on life in Bali.

All in all, I heartily recommend Sugars to travellers who appreciate a homely, personal environment and can step past the barriers of their own cultures to engage the gentle Bali welcome on its own turf.

We loved sugars for the fact that it is not in hustle and bustle of ubud. They made us feel very welcome and always did whatever they could do to make us feel welcome. They even put flowers on our bed !

The hiccup thing that left a bit of a bitter taste in our mouth was that we ended up changing our booking and wanting to leave a few days earlier as we for d ubud just too busy. Nyoman was fine with this when we told him and then when we came to check out 3 days later he told us that the owner John was not happy and we should pay. It would have been helpful to have known this the previous 3 days before so we could change our plans. We were also then charged for food that we were told was for free " a welcoming meal for our honeymoon" . Which maybe was a way for them to recount some cost that they lost. But not that cool when you're told it is a gift. Plus being a small place, there were a lot of children staying on 2 nights which stopped us from feeling like we could be in a chilled out honeymoon place. We would go back though and just make sure we booked only a few days and add them on if we want to stay.
Apart from that I would really recommend this place.

Room Tip: The back bungalow is most private.
