“Great to Chill out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

Beautiful Villas, very well equipped, its really like having your own house for a few days, private and quiet. The resort is NOT in central UBUD, its actually a 20 minute drive away, its actually in the middle of no where so bare that in mind. This place is ultra relaxing, not the kinda place you should book if you wanna be out and about doing stuff all the time, more of a check in, chill out place. They do have a free shuttle to central Ubud and back, but a taxi is cheap anyway. Breakfast is good, lots of choice, didn't try dinner at the hotel as there is so much to choose from in Ubud.

The villas are well designed; good size with nice furnishings. They are a little tired and shabby in parts though and could do with a lick of paint and a tidy. Also beware that half the villas don't get any sun on their decks for most of the day (those on the 'FX' lawn side) so I would request being the opposite side.

The staff are friendly and eager to please although the service isn't great. Often requests need to be made a couple of times or you might be left for a long time in the bar areas waiting to be served etc.

The pool bar is frankly bizarre as it doesn't stock any drinks! Any requests (when staff are there - often it's abandoned) take 10 minutes as the drinks are brought over from the main area.

Food in the restaurant is pretty good although incredibly over priced for Bali as is the case with the drinks.

Beware the spa - my wife had a 2 hour experience that only lasted 90 minutes. I brought this matter to the attention of the manager who said he would look into it and resolve the issue but unfortunately he didn't bother to come back to me or reply to my subsequent message. Again, as for the food and beverages, it is already incredibly overpriced compared to other similar places in Bali. They definitely take advantage of the fact that you are in a fairly remote location and the experience left me feeling they try and rip you off whenever they can.

Overall it was ok and has a lot of potential but I think it could be a lot better with stronger management.

Room Tip: Choose a villa on the opposite side to the FX lawn.

We stayed here for five nights, two nights in the lagoon room and three in pool spa villa. Personally we preferred the lagoon villa room even though you pay more for the pool spa villa. Both villas were amazing. Staff are beyond friendly and the whole place is just beautiful. Prices are a bit expensive compared to Bali in general, however the food is incredible and generous portions. 24 hour room service, free shuttles to Ubuntu which run approx every two hours. Didn't feel like leaving the resort it is so wonderful!

Room Tip: I recommend the lagoon villa.

not sure where to start but I am not new to hotels - me and my partner stayed at the hotels 60-90 nights per years travelling around the world. (mostly 4-5 stars)

But up to this day, when someone asked us - where is the best hotel we had ever been to
I am happy to say "Furama Xclusive" is the best hotel we ever stayed.

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere but for some reason it's work!

Location: far from ubud town but complimentary shuttle bus provided by the hotel
Room:huge room, massive bathroom, his and her closet, double basin, outdoor - indoor seating area and access to 70meter lagoon pool from your villa
Breakfast: nice selection, plenty of selection to choose from (both asian items and westerner)
Service: The staff totally polite and friendly.

If you are looking for a totally relaxation, romantic and luxurious holidays. Then this place is for you.

This is our first trip to Bali and we choose to stay 2 nights in Ubud at FuramaXclusive after looking through reviews and forums. We manage to book the villa at 50% off from their website and the villa did not disappoint us at all. We were met by hotel representative, Suki, promptly on arrival at airport. Nice clean car took us to the villa which is an hour drive away. Suki is very friendly and introduce some of the places along the way. Villa is located quite deep in along a small narrow lane, difficult to travel out at night, but they do provide schedule shuttle service to Ubud centre until 17:00. Staff were very friendly and polite upon our arrival. The afternoon tea served at their cafe was nice.
The villa is enclosed by panels of full glass windows and very conducive and romantic. There is also a couple bathtub. A shallow pool for kids is available in our villa and this pool leads to the bigger 1m lagoon pool common share with other villas. My husband had an enjoyable swim in the lagoon pool while I laze and read at our own deck.
Breakfast was ok, but variety is limited. We had our dinner using the in-room service, the wedges & Tom yam soup were bagus. Prices a little steeper than in seminyak.
Villas surround a small rice field which was interesting, however, they were burning some part of the field during our stay and we felt the air very choking during the evening and early morning. Apart from this, the hotel might wish to consider to provide residents will more drinking water. Given that it is not easy to travel out and with just two 300ml per day is not enough. Can provide dispensing water in each villa like those in seminyak.

Furama is one of the most gorgeous resorts on the island of bali. We always recommend it to our clients, and use this property for many of our yoga retreats and other programs. The private villas are stunning and having your own private swimming pool is an amazing luxury along with lush gardens and a private outdoor shower! The staff is the best, and food is always healthy and carefully prepared...best breakfast buffet anywhere.
