“Bali highlight”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at Bidadari at the end of our holiday in Bali, I really wish we had allowed more time in Ubud, specifically at Bidadari. The villas are in such an amazing location, it was hard motivating ourselves to leave this beautiful resort to sightsee! Privacy is the emphasis and the staff do an amazing job providing your every need in such a gracious way. I miss the sounds of the crickets, birds, geckos and frogs! It really is a true escape. The devil is in the detail as they say and having stayed at many hotels and private guesthouses over the years, I really enjoyed the little extra touches like fresh fruit salad and ginger tea after the most amazing massages at the Bidadari spa. The afternoon teas and the flexibility to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We returned later than expected from a bike tour of the rice fields and most places would say breakfast has finished, not here, all smiles no problem we will send breakfast over to your villa now if you like? Yes please!
Thank you to all of the staff for giving us such a memorable stay, I hope to return again very soon!

Arriving in Feb 2013 in the middle of the night we were greeted and shown to our rooms by the most beaming of smiles and although already impressed, it wasn't until we woke up the next morning in our bed to look out the open doors to the most amazing view of tropical rain forest over the valley. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday on which the chef produced a fantastic meal to be finished off with a surprise birthday cake and song sung by the Bidadari staff... We were blown away. We had the best time and if you're wondering if this place is worth it? IT IS! If your wondering whether to stay here or somewhere else STAY HERE! To Rana and all your staff thank you for the most memorable trip. From Andrew and Philippa.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 1 and was spacious and amazing views. All the villas look beautiful!

First let me express that overall we had a wonderful time during our stay at the resort. The staff was very attentive and friendly, the food was excellent by any standard the room was exceedingly comfortable and the setting was as beautiful as shown in the online photos. There were only 2 things that were somewhat disappointing. The first was regarding the tranquility. One of the main attractions to the resort is its location and the expectation of tranquility and peacefulness. This was not the environment we experienced during the last day and a half of our stay due to the numerous chain saws in operation on two different adjacent sides of the property. Though the resort may have no control over their neighbors, they could have tried to find some way to compensate their guests for the irritation that this intrusion caused. Secondly, for transportation to and from the airport we were charged $40 each way. Numerous times while we were in town, taxi drivers were offering the same transportation for $20. If the resort does not want to provide the transfer to and from the airport as a courtesy, they should at least be more competitive with the going rates that their guests are certain to hear about during their stay.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Hi JC39ct

Thank you for staying with us at Bidadari and thank you for your constructive review, I really appreciate it. I can totally understand your disappointment with the chainsaw noise over the valley. I truly wish I had the power to stop them, it was unexpected for us too…Please if there is ever a problem that you feel you need compensated for, let me know during your stay that is my job to look after you….

Regarding transport charge:

All our guests are free to get their own transport from Ubud anytime at a cheaper rate we have no problem with that if that is what you choose. All hotels in Ubud charge the same rate for Private Cars, for drop off and pick up to the Airport as it is at least an hour and a half drive one way.
Also as you know we have complimentary drop off and pick up to Ubud Center anytime day or night as often as you like, including complimentary use of mobile phone to ensure safety and correct pick up place and time.
We are totally responsible for the safety of our guests and their luggage. To and from the airport, and are also responsible for anything that is perhaps unavoidably left in the car, eg phone camera sunglasses, and we can track it down with our own drivers. Our cars are clean, fully maintained and air conditioned and our drivers don’t take you on any detours so they can receive kick backs if you want to buy anything.

Please when next you come to Bidadari if you prefer to choose your own transport it is certainly no problem for us. We care very much for our guests and really want to make sure that there is no problem from Pick up at the Airport to Drop back off to the Airport and you have a wonderful holiday.
Thank you once again for your constructive review and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you both and sincerely wish we can meet again at Bidadari when next you come to Ubud.

Warm Regards Rana and the Team at Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat- Ubud

We stayed at the Bidadari Villas in November 2012. We were in Bali for a wedding and thought we would spend two nights at Bidadari for our anniversary. We stayed in the Jepun Villa and it was the most beautiful accommodation we've ever seen or stayed.

The villa was immaculate and set up well. Upstairs was a kitchen, dining, day bed area which had picturesque veiws over the valley. An amazing view while enjoying breakfast or candlelit dinner. Downstairs is the king size bedroom, bathroom and infinite pool. Bathroom was pure luxury- rainfall shower for two, an outdoor rock shower and rose petal bath. The gardens around the villas were beautiful and traditional. 

The manager and staff are kind, helpful and respectful of privacy. The food was delicious (I was early pregnant so wasn't eating much but my husband enjoyed what I couldn't finish). 

We could not fault anything at the Bidadari. It is peaceful, relaxing and a beautiful place to stay. Everything was exactly what we hoped and then there were all the extra little touches that made it our own personal paradise for two days. We will absolutely be back to stay! Thank you Rana and all the staff at Bidadari Villas. From Jamaica and Samuel  (Perth, WA)

Everything about our experience staying at Bidadari was perfect: the attention to detail as we reserved the villa; the greeting upon our arrival; the location and view; the villa itself; the food; the daytrips; the spa. it was all magical--every comfort was considered and the peaceful location is outstanding. the kindest staff presented our meals to us in our own villa and the manager checked in with us each day to be sure that we had everything we might need and to help arrange outings and spa time if we desired. the spa, located deep on the property and right near the river, was an ideal place to feel pampered; not to mention the very good treatment--i recommend the massage--listening to the river and watching the flower petals floating in the bowl beneath the table were just a part of the ambiance. they also made our trip even more special with the help of a driver, surya, who kindly recommended splendid restaurants and suggested additional places we should visit while out exploring. the bidadari villas are special and if you go to bali, you must go to ubud, therefore you must stay at this marvelous place that proves everything you have ever heard about the wonder of the balinese people. simply stunning--and memorable.

Room Tip: every villa is fabulous

My husband and I stayed here for five nights as part of our honeymoon. We loved every minuite of being at Bidadari - the outdoor bathroom was a delight, the private swimming pool was incredible and the service faultless - they appear to have thought of everything! The view out over the jungle was just gorgeous and we did almost nothing except relax in our villa - leaving only for dinner and massages (though they would come to your room if you prefer!)
Wonderful spot - we will return.

Just came back from a 7 night stay in Bali (3 nights in Ubud at Bidadari) and had a great stay. I was with my parents, aunt and grandmother. We had initially booked a 2 bedroom villa and were upgraded to the private residence villa which was really nice. The view is phenomenal and to be a part of the natural beauty of Bali was great. It was also nice to be upgraded to the private residence villa as my grandmother didn't have to climb the steep stairs for their other villas. The staff really welcome any suggestions and strive to improve.

Hi Amit K
Thank you for your review and how wonderful to be travelling with your family ,we realise how hard it can be for older people with the stairs and where possible we try to accommodate them on one level .
It was our pleasure to give you an upgrade to the residence villa, it was lovely to meet all of you and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay.
