Villa Awang Awang
Ranked #77 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2010

Villa Awang Awang is an exceptional villa, in an exceptional location, with exceptional staff members. The location - about 4 kms from Ubud - is breathtaking in its beauty; high above the river, with views across to the jungle on the other side. The place is serene, the sounds being those of birds, crickets, frogs, and the river flowing steadily downstream. The villa in which our family stayed was excellent: spacious, clean, and with great facilities. The staff members of the villas are very friendly and helpful - even including assistance with lovely river swims (with the waterfalls and beauty, a river swim is highly recommended), and the food produced by Awang's chef is first rate and reasonably priced.

We stayed in Beji Villa which I highly recommended for the traveller who prizes quietness ,beauty and privacy. Those wanting to be "in the thick of things " should go elsewhere . The villa is set pretty much on its own in gorgeous lush jungle about 10 mins drive out of Ubud. However, whenever we wanted to go into town, the staff willingly drove us in and then picked us up. The rooms were generous , clean and comfortable with air-conditioning and a balcony off the bedrooms to sit and watch the view. The 2 bedrooms/bathrooms were equally lovely. Downstairs there was a loungeroom that led off to the pool . We spent a fair amount of time lazing by the pool which was pretty shady but that suited us .
The staff were always kind generous and bent over backwards to be helpful - we particularly loved the walk down to the river/waterfall they took us on and the bike ride they organised for us. However, for the very particular guest , you will have to cope with small inconveniences like a broken TV ( dvd worked ), a massage that we booked 2 days in a row that didn't turn up. If you can not stress about that sort of thing and enjoy the sound of the river , the monkeys in the trees across the canyon ( we really did see some!!) the beautiful butterflies and the peacefulness , you will LOVE this place!!

We travel to Bali regularly with another couple and always seek a location in Ubud that is a little removed from the town. We stayed in the smaller villa, Villa Beji which has the most beautiful infinity pool looking down the river gorge and an outdoor terrace on the first level that affords you a fantastic view of the monkeys at play in the trees across the river.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for the team at the villa and they were always ready to meet any request. We generally don't dine in our villas in the evening in Bali, preferring to try a different restaurant each night, however this time we ate in twice and I've gotta tell you the sate sauce here is to die for! The availability of the twice daily transfer to Ubud was also very useful as we were doing some business in the area.

So, all in all a great stay. Oh and I forgot to mention the tuberoses. All the great places i have stayed in Bali have vases filled with these most fragrant of flowers. Ann's team had these placed throughout the Villa - talk about sensory overload!

The villa was just gorgeous, like a hidden pearl. It's not at a walking distance to Ubud, but that doens't matter, because they have great drivers that will take you to Ubud twice a day for free. The surroundings are very serene and early in the morning with the mist still hanging in the valley is just so beautiful.
The staff was very friendly and took great care for us.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. Also for honeymooners it's such a romantic place.
You can even get married in the villa, with the help of the staff there. If you are looking for a place to get married in Bali, I would definitely recommend this place!

My wife and I stayed in the Beji house of Awang Awang in May 2010 and it was a truly relaxing experience.
By day we sat by the pool and took in the spectacular surrounds. By night we opened the doors and listened to the jungle come alive with sound and watched fire flies buzz about.
Everything is hassle free, from check in to check out. If you order from the in-house menu, the food is prepared and delivered to your table at the time of your choosing. You really don’t have to worry about much at all while at Awang Awang.
The rooms are very large and clean and serviced daily and the staff offer plenty of transport and tour services.
What is especially great about this place is that it is staffed by people from that village, meaning that most of the guest’s money goes straight back into that very village.
Highly recommended.

Villa Awang Awang is a delightful Balinese style house on three levels perched on the edge of a steep river valley in the beautiful and peaceful rural village of Melayang in the mountains near Ubud.

The staff, which outnumbered the guests in our party by ten to eight, were cheerful, friendly, attentive and went out of their way to make us feel at home not just in the villa but in the village itself.

The accommodation was well appointed and comfortable with large screen TV, free internet with wireless and a laptop provided, CD player and full kitchen facilities.

A free delicious breakfast was supplied each day and lunch and evening meals provided on request for a very reasonable tarrif, with the resident chef and his helpers catering to our every whim in the comfort of our own private dining area.

Free daily transport in and out of the town of Ubud was provided with nominal charges for extra trips.

Our hosts organised cycling and rafting trips at very competitive rates and were a wealth of knowledge about all sorts of activities on offer.

Stayed with family and friends at this beautiful place, 8 of us in total. Stunning scenery, beautiful accommodation and very helpful staff made this a special holiday. Highlights - swimming in the infinity pool while monkeys were feeding in the trees across the gorge, massage on the pavilion, the sound of the river at night.
I could not imagine a more peaceful serene environment.
In addition, Dewa Agung and his nine staff attended to our every need, from providing delicious meals to organising white water rafting and cycling adventures.
Put this place on your bucket list.
