Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat
Ranked #4 of 585 Speciality Lodging in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Have been more than 20 times visiting Bali and was now looking for somewhat really private and exclusive, without beeing submitted to resort & hotel schedules. The Bidadari met all my expectancies in this sense. Service is excellent but not intrusively. Car with driver always at call and as to the shuttle service to Ubud even free of charge. Very nice institution is the mobile phone you get for staying always in contact with the resort, whenever you need a help outside. The villa itself met best international standards. Dining service is restricted to a few simple but good dishes. Should be used only for breakfeast and when one still doesn't want to go outside for whatever resasons. All in all excellent, especially recommendable to honeymooners or couples who want absolute privacy in paradisiac ambiance.

What a wonderful oasis tucked away in the gorgeous mountains of Ubud. The indoor/outdoor bathrooms have to be one of the best things I ever experienced. The service here is impeccable. They even gave us a going away party of sorts on our last day complete with parting gifts. Can't say enough lovely things about this gem of a place. It is the perfect mix of luxury in the center of nature with amazing food and the sweetest/kindest people ever. We will cherish the time we spent here forever!

Bidadari really is a wonderful place. We stayed here for three nights as part of Honeymoon and I must say it met and exceeded expectations. The people who run it are incredibly kind and professional and really cannot do enough for you. The villa itself that we were in was beautiful with infinity pool at the edge of a perfectly appointed and spacious living area. The view from the pool was spectacular overlooking a river valley. The bedroom then is upstairs with a beautiful wooden ceiling, four poster bed and is well sealed off so that there is no fear of mossies or being too warm.

While not cheap, it is very good value for money for the 5 star service you receive and how much privacy and space you have.

If you are considering going to Ubud and feel that Bidadari may be too far away, fear not; a car is ready to go within 5 minutes of your ringing them and it takes 10-15 minutes to get into town. They will come get you then when you're ready and you can ring them on mobile they give you. This is a far better option, in my opinion, to come in, and see Ubud and then escape from the relative bustle of that town to the serenity of Bidadari.

The breakfasts were great and the food overall is of a very high standard so that if you do want to stay in some night it is a good option. The massage we had in the beautiful spa by the river is a must as well.

If coming to Bali, let alone Ubud, you will honestly not go wrong with a few days or longer here - a stunning place.

This is the first time I have left a review on TA and I felt I had to give something back to Bidadari after our magical stay there.

We chose Bidadari on recommendation from friends and were 'so' not disappointed. The staff go above and beyond with every request, the views are out of this world, the rooms are 7 star, the grounds are amazing, everything about this place has to be seen to be believed!

Trust me! Do yourself a favour and stay at least 1 or 2 nights when you're in Bali next!!

Our family (me, husband, son and father) booked the Exclusive Family Package and stayed in "the Residence" for 3 nights. The accommodation, food, service, staff friendliness were all fantastic. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere as luxurious as this! We really enjoyed both the walking and driving tours, as well as the Balinese afternoon teas and the dinner which were all included in the package. The free shuttle to Ubud meant that we could explore the main area but get back to our beautiful accommodation whenever we needed. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer!

Honestly could not fault anything, just read felicity45's review and I agree with all the comments. We booked a 2 bedroom pool villa and a little shocked to find we were in a huge 4 bedroom villa with a massive living room overlooking the rice fields. I will certainly be coming back as the staff were amazing and made us feel so special by greeting us by name everytime they saw us. The car service to and from town made everything so easy with a quick call from the mobile phone provided we were delivered back to our Luxurious villa. If you are looking for villa Accommodation in Ubud look no further.

There is no perfection in the world but this certainly comes close. The feeling you get when u step into the spacious open living area and see it overlooking a tranquil forest with the sounds of the river far down below leaves you speechless. It was hard to believe this was where we would be for the next 4 days. Our own private heaven. Moving down to the bedroom you see a huge inviting 4-poster bed with romantic curtains directly facing the sliding doors leading to your own private infinity pool, sun loungers and sitting area. The sliding doors were humongous and we couldnt wait to wake up in the morning to see the forest laid out before my feet as i rolled in bed.

Check in was done at our living room with us still dazed by the view and taking it all in. We had refreshing lime juice and a cold invigorating bamboo sheet mask to freshen us up from our long airport drive. A local mobile phone was provided during our stay so we would be able to call for a pick up anytime we needed in town. The villa offers free drop off and pick up in Ubud town. A thoughtful personal touch much appreciated indeed. Their service and detail to attention is truly what sets this villa apart from others. The staff are all very warm and welcoming, remembering your name and constantly on the lookout to assist in anyway possible. We had an issue with the lights and fan the next morning and also a little mishap where I clumsily locked the safe without a code. These were mentioned and in a swift few minutes later not only were the matters address but resolved! They had everything rectified even before we had finished our breakfast and everything was done quietly without interrupting our space. It was the best of both worlds. Attentive quick service and privacy of our own space.

We're not morning people but the breakfast routine really set the day well for us. We'd excitedly fill in the breakfast menu the night before. We were spoilt for choice choosing from their good selection of options. They serve according to what time indicate and everything is set up at your villa with the option of having it by the pool or in the living room. It starts with fruit platter and juice of choice followed by breakfast set chosen. Love the warm delicious bread basket provided ranged from croissants, cinnamon rolls, chocolate rolls, cupcakes and bread that alternates daily and served with 2 types of jams and butter. We would have a cup of coffee and tea each while enjoying the view and digesting our breakfast.

The half day trip to Kintamani was really nice and we loved the view and food. We were still glad to be back at the villa and were always warmly welcomed by the staff the moment we step onto the pavement. The personal touch really made us feel warm and welcomed. It felt so much more like a family home stay. They have DVDs and books we could borrow for free so we made the most of it as both the living room and bedroom had large TVs. The room had been cleaned and the bed had been turned down thoughtfully with goodnight biscuits. The pool lights had come on and the room smelled of the sweet frangipani they had placed on the dresser. Unlike many private pool villas seen online, the pools here were clean, had night lights and was regulated with pump. It wasnt those that just had a pool for the sake of saying they had one.

They have an indoor and outdoor shower. We liked the indoor rain shower as well as their fragrant bath products provided. Even grabbing a towel made us smile as they were crisp and smelled wonderful! Jumping into bed we found that the sheets and pillows smelled great too. We stayed 2 nights at Villa Jepun and a night at Villa Tunjung. Both were great and had their own plus points. Jepun was more snug and romantic with bathtub to boot. Tunjung was more spacious and the Tv was right in front of the bed.

They have the BEST pistachio ice cream I have ever had! The ginger tea from the spa was really nice too. There has just been so many happy moments, smiles, thoughtful gestures (most done even without noticing) that its hard to put everything down into words. You really have to be there to experience it and we would certainly recommend this place to those who want to get away and unwind away from the crowd and touristy nightspots. The fresh cooling air, cheerful sparrows taking a dip in our pool and the subtle rush of the river below makes it all very relaxing. On our last night we enjoyed the complimentary couple spa and a delightful dinner for two at our villa. Special tanks to Mr.Rana and the Bidadari family that made our first trip to Bali a special and unforgettable one.

Note that pictures do not do the view, sliding doors, pool and bath tub justice. Somehow it looks smaller in pics. Rest assured the bath tub could fit 2 adults reclined with more space on sides to spare. The pool may look small but it isn't and it is deep enough to reach my chin with me on tip toes.

Room Tip: There are indeed a lot of steps here so the few rooms closer to the reception is best if you dont wa...
