“Perfection in the Ricefields near Ubud”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

My second time here, and it only gets better with age, even though its only a couple of years old, it feels like its been secluded in the ricefields for ages. A cluster of 8 one & Two bedroom villas to die for. All furnished with one off pieces of furniture, 8 metre plunge pools, absolute privacy.They provide transfers to & from Ubud at set times, the staff are perfectly efficeint, smiling , as do all the Balinese, and in July I want to come back to try the restaurant which will open. Even without the Restaurant, they manage a very good kitchen that provides superb , breakfast lunch and dinner, all delivered to your villa, so the new restaurant just adds another dimension .
Just wish this stay was longer. but another good one tomorrow.

We had high expectations coming to Chapung Se Bali with the great feedback from TripAdvisor and the wonderful photos posted on their website. All those expectations were exceeded the moment we arrived!

This boutique resort is extraordinarily one of the most beautiful and unique place we’ve ever stayed.

Serene natural landscape paired with meticulously designed spaces, architecture, furniture and layout make this resort so special. The location is set between lush green rice paddies and a deep narrow canyon covered with tropical plants and flowers. The trickling water from the river below and the birds flying about set such a magical tone for a peaceful and Zen atmosphere.

You enter your own private two bedroom Villa through a pair of antique Balinese carved door. Buddha statues and a koi pond greet you as you proceed through. We were all excited to see the gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the canyon with comfy lounge chairs to relax in privacy.

The bedrooms are well decorated with contemporary European furniture. More than half of the bedroom is floor to ceiling glass so it was great to have the blinds up to enjoy the scenery, sunrise, rain and wildlife while comfy in your canopy beds. Very romantic setting. The large open living space and kitchen/dinning room were great to watch a movie or share a nice meal together.

We enjoyed our free daily breakfast that was either served in the Villa or at the Restaurant/lounge. Breakfast included delicious bread and pastry basket, fresh tropical fruit, choice of eggs/omelet cooked just the way you like, sausage, juices and coffee. Daily Afternoon tea and cakes were also a nice touch.

They were very helpful in arranging excursion, massages and providing us with great attentive service. Through Chapung, we went on an awesome whitewater rafting trip and to the nearby temples. All highly recommended!

A private SUV takes you into the heart of Ubud in less than 15 minutes. We never had an issue scheduling our free daily trips into Ubud. There was always a car ready or they’ll call one by within 20 minutes. Ubud arts and crafts is a must see in Bali.

Truly one of the most memorable places we stayed in around the world. If you are looking for an intimate and quiet setting to unwind and relax, this will satisfy all your needs. Affordable luxury at its best!

Thank you Chapung for making our trip so amazing!

Simply marvellous.

Pros:

- Amazing grounds
- Friendly & lovely staff
- Great food
- Magic atmosphere
- Free Internet

Contras

- None, aside from the yet-to-be-built SPA which would have made it perfect !

Worth to mention: on top of a hill a few Kms away from Ubud (1hr by foot, 20mins by bike), not necessarily a negative thing though, considering how quiet and peaceful the place is.

The short drive through the rice field to Chapung Se Bali separates one from daily life so that you can enter the natural surroundings and serenity of this boutique resort without a care in the world. The minute you arrive, you feel like your holiday has begun. The staff is personable and welcoming and the smaller size of the resort means the service is truly personalized. If there is something they can do to make your stay more pleasant they will.

The villas have a great Bali/European style to them and provide a serene and private family space around the pool while also offering the convenience of kitchen facilities and modern technology including WiFi. Traveling with teens, I find those amenities are a requirement!

We have enjoyed Chapung Se Bali on a few occasions and generally opt for active days with bicycling, hiking, and exploring. Returning to such a comfortable and welcoming villa for a cool dip in the pool and a glass of wine while watching the sunset over the natural landscape and traditional rice paddies that wind through the resort is a real treat.

I have always found the food to be delicious, and particularly love their Soto Ayam, but their are many wonderful restaurants just a short trip into Ubud. Ask the staff for recommendations if you aren't sure where to go.

I think Chapung Se Bali is a real gem. It is rare to find a truly beautiful resort that has the best of home and the best of a hotel in one place.

Wow – we loved this place! So much so that it is no exaggeration to say that I had a tear in my eye as we drove away after a wonderful 11 days – that is a first I can promise, as is providing a review on Trip Advisor. There are, however, so many reasons to recommend Chapung Sebali. Whilst only ten minutes drive, it is a world away from the bustle of downtown Ubud. Overlooking the rice paddies and green hills, our villa was extremely private and just gorgeous. Open and light, with large master bedroom, separate second bedroom, fish pond, freshwater swimming pool and huge outdoor lounge and dining area, it was the perfect place to relax, and for our 2 year old to explore. As a result we spent many a happy day and night at the villa itself and enjoyed some really great food: the marinated snapper and tenderloin beef a couple of our favourites. Shuttles to and from Ubud can be arranged at short notice and of course it is easy to arrange vehicle/pushbike/motorbike hire to get out and explore more widely. But the thing that really set this place apart for us was the wonderful service from the manager, Rana, and his great team who, whilst at all times extremely professional and ever attentive, made us feel completely relaxed and at home. Our daughter is still asking about her “aunties and uncles” - did I mention the babysitting? (My only note of caution is to parents who might not feel comfortable having a young child in the second bedroom, which is really quite separate from the master. We decided to take our daughter in with us -which was not the original plan! - but as you can see, did not dampen our enthusiasm for this place.)

Didn't know what to expect as it was my first time coming to Bali but wow! The staff are welcoming and very helpful. Raca who was our butler even took us mountain biking after he was finished his shift! A really fantastic stay.

We needed a break to recharge during a busy year and wow did we choose the right place ! Stunning grounds on the edge of the local river valley, superbly designed villa compounds with that airy Bali feel but also some European cool thrown in. Our villa with private gardens / pools / koi pond /entertaining area was huge. The management and staff have a genuineness and "can do" that just has to be experienced. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the experience for their guests. Our personal assistant/butler was just lovely. We often ate in our private garden/pool area and the food was both delicious and very affordable. All credit to the management who are training staff from local villages and therefore supporting the local community. What a refreshing change from the normal, impersonal, jaded hotel experience! We were truly hosted by lovely and gracious people. Only 10 mins into the heart of Ubud by the villa's drivers (one free return each day and very reasonable charges beyond that). We really did not want to leave and are planning a return asap !
