“The best part of our Honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We recently went to Bali for our Honeymoon and this was our first stop. We truly loved our stay here and it was unforgettable. We selected the Honeymoon package which was great and stayed for 3 nights. We were picked up at the airport and was took the long trip to the Villa. Although it was fairly late when we arrived, close to 10pm, there were about 5 staff members to greet us. They all had smiles and greeted by name. We then walked through the property and gave our breakfast order for the morning.

The property was gorgeous and quiet, perfect place for our honeymoon. We stayed in Villa 6 and had plenty of space for the 2 of us. Breakfast was provided in the morning, it was fresh and delicious. We were provided a tour of various sites in the area. During our time we went in town several times and was given a phone to call for pickup. Also you should take part in the spa services. My husband and I had massages, this being my husband's first time having one, and we truly enjoyed them.

I can not say enough good things about the place and the service. It is hard to impress my husband and I and we were beyond pleased.

If you are looking for something that is secluded with great service, this is the place to be.

A couple of tips are:

There are mosquitoes and other bugs: they do a great job at keeping them away so that they don't bother you but being realistic you do have quite a bit of outdoor area so you will see a couple, it is going to happen.

The villas further down on the property have steps. Depending on how far you are down can determine how many steps you have to take. All villas have beautiful views but if you have trouble with steps make it known so they can accommodate.

Make sure to locate the air conditioning remote early on. We didn't ask about it until our last night. It would have been much cooler had we located beforehand.

Hi amsdk2013
First of all congratulations on your wedding and for choosing us for your honeymoon.Thank you for your fantastic detailed review and we love to hear we impressed both of you and you enjoyed your Villa, our service and the Spa treatments.
Your tips are also excellent, its important for Trip Advisor readers to communicate with us if they have any problems with stairs as we do have villas at the top near reception. Also being in the jungle you can get a few insects as our villas are indoor/outdoor which is a fantastic living experience in our wonderful climate and location.
Lastly so sorry for not making sure you knew where the air-con remote control was, it must have been frustrating on a warm night, for that I truly apologize, but when you stay with us anytime 24/7 just press 0 on the telephone and we are there to help.
We wish you many many happy years together and sincerely hope you come and stay with us again.
Warm regards Rana & the family @ Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat- Ubud

Bidadari is one of the rare property in Ubud or I dare say in Bali which delivers the right level of service at the right value. My family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) stayed with Bidadari for 2 nights in Villa 6. We have been to many villa resorts in the past but this one tops it all. The sheer space, attention to details, decor and comfort were all simply world-class!!!

The surrounding was quiet and tranquil and each of the 7 villas were carefully designed to guarantee exclusivity. In-villa dining was prepared by their chef and is usually served between 30 mins from time of order. So it's pretty fast by my standard!

Other notable service positives :-

1) Which resort would have the GM (Mr Rana) greet the guests personally when they arrive and walk through the villa introduction with you?

2) Got a villa upgrade for just USD 50 per night which provided us exclusive use of the 4 bedroom villa with a private pool and a huge common living area!

3) The service staff perpetually served with a smile. The point is they did it so naturally.

4) The resort is located off the beaten path but they sure know how to delight their guests by providing complimentary shuttle service to and from Ubud centre 24 hrs x 7 days a week.

5) The resort gave us 2 fruit baskets with drinks as farewell when we checked-out. That's definitely a great farewell gesture.

I would highly recommend Bidadari to any travellor who desires the extra bit of service at a slightly higher price point. At the end of the day, it was all worth it!

It was with absolute pleasure that we returned to Bidadari this year, staying in the Puri Cendana villa. One of my favourite things about visiting Bidadari is that it grows even more beautiful with each passing year, quite unlike other places I have stayed in Bali that seem to deteriorate from one visit to the next. After a long flight with children we were happy to order in for our evening meal and the food was simply delish. My favourite Balinese staple is Gado Gado and the Bidadari kitchen puts a tasty modern twist on it. The Carbonara was a favourite with the kids and the spaghetti pomodoro went down very well with my Italian husband. Bidadari has service excellence down to a tea, they've thought of everything including a 'breakfast box' for early checkout filled with fresh fruit and yummy pastries. The villas are hidden away in a little village that we walked through every afternoon to get an ice cream for the little ones or just take in the surrounds. Lots of baby chickens flitting about, children flying kites and women raking rice to be seen along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Bidadari Private Villas to anyone looking for the very best that Ubud has to offer and while you're there be sure to try their outstanding in-house spa service for the most exquisite treatments available - their massages are second to none!

Room Tip: Puri Cendana was a good fit for our family with two children under 5.

we stayed in Puri Cendana and as soon as we walked in we couldnt believe our eyes...it was absolutely stunning. The villa was comfortable, stylish and the pool was exquisite! The staff were absolutely amazing and couldnt do anymore to help us although they tried! What beautiful people - they made us feel so welcome and at home. Punia our driver was the best - what a gentleman. This stay was just what I needed after a tough few months and I cannot thank the owners enough for making such a haven accessible to all. Brilliant!!

My wife and I stayed in Bidadari number 2 villa for two nights, it located in Ubud and very near to the Ubud town. It has free transportation to the town, you can call them anytime with the hotel phone.

Our villa has two stairs, one living room and the other bed room with private pool. We do enjoy the environment, the quite, the spa and also the food from resort.

We stayed in the Pucuk villa for 7 nights and wished that we had been there for longer. The view was amazing and it was so private.

It was my husband's birthday and all the staff got together to sing for him with a cake which was brilliant. The staff really go out of their way, the service was exceptional. The food was also very good, we had 2 meals at the villa and a number in Ubud. The quality and the price of the food is really reasonable.

The on call shuttle service makes everything very easy.

I also had a massage and scrub at the spa which was out of this world and highly recommended.

When in Ubud I also recommend going on the bird walk with Su.

Room Tip: All are amazing!

As hospitality professionals we are always looking for a getaway that is stress free and an escape from all that comes with this rewarding but challenging industry. It also means that where we choose to stay can come under scrutiny and be up for comparison to our own working standards and high expectations. In Bidadari Private Villas, we found utopia! Mr. Rana and his team welcomed us home for a week long break . The service is faultless and personal without being intrusive. All meals are served to your villa (the food is fantastic!) in the most intimate and serene surroundings overlooking your private infinity plunge pool. Our villa, Pukuk, was spacious with uninterrupted views across the rain forest. Ubud is a 5 minute car transfer away that is available upon your request at anytime. We thoroughly enjoyed strolling around the village in the early evenings or afternoons taking in the bohemian atmosphere. The Spa is a must, Eka and Wiwik were fantastic therapists and the location toward the bottom of the valley is breathtaking. Every single staff member (I wish I could mention them all) knew and greeted us by name in the most genuine and friendly manner, I can assure readers this is what hoteliers strive for in their team. It goes such a long way. Thank you to all who made our stay so special.
