Stayed at the villa for the last 3 nights. What a fantastic place. So close to great restaurants. With kedak as our help nothing could go wrong from organising massages to his brother Putu driving us around great guys. To the owners kedak is special
We have stayed in 3 Villas booked through Ubud Private Villas. All have been excellent.
Villa Bulan Mas is about 30 metres off Jalan Penestanan. It has 2 bedrooms with ensuites, a pool, open kitchen, lounge, dining and a fully equipped kitchen.
There are numerous restaurants very close by. It is about 10 mins walk from the temple, markets and palace in Ubud. 5 mins by taxi (about 25000 rupee $A2.50).
Yoga centre next door and several more in the rice fields etc. several spas nearby.
Excellent atmosphere, day beds either end of the pool, TV, very good wifi, fresh chilled water provided. Easy walk to local village rice fields.
I did a lot of walking, my wife did a lot of relaxing and daily massage.
The houseboy, Kadek, came each morning to make breakfast, clean the pool, sweep the yard and organise anything we wanted (in house massage, taxi, trips, insight into local culture). He is a delight, keen to help in any way.
Bayus Kitchen is 4 doors away and the food and staff are great, even have difficult to please kids options. They even offered to bring food to the house when we were tired.
A very Balinese environment with wonderful Bali ness people.
Just what I wanted... a holiday where I could relax, walk to restaurants and get out and about easily. The Villa is a comfortable 20 minute stroll to the centre of Ubud however Penestanan has it's own charms making it an ideal location. We enjoyed having Kadek arrive every morning to make breakfast (what a luxury!) and he was delightful - teaching us some Balinese phrases and sharing insights about his family and Balinese culture. Getting there was easy... even after a flight arrival of 10pm. Steve arranged a driver and we woke up the next morning to a beautiful setting including a lovely swimming pool and garden.
Perfect. Other places offer similar for $1.000 a night. This is a tenth of that in price but so much better as you spend time and get to know the people involved. Lots of cheap, tasty and friendly local restaurants just a few metres away. I think if you stay here for a week you will want to come back, because you will fall in love with the people who make this and the other villas possible. Davii in this villa is a gem. Steve makes it all so easy.
Fabulous villa - very quiet and private. Clean, fully equipped with everything you need. Great location, walk to Ubud, coffee shops, cafe, restaurants metres away. Terrific houseboy (Wok) looked after all my needs and great service when booking
Definitely will return.
Great stay at Bulan Mas. Beautiful pool and openair was great. Full kitchen, lovely breakfast cooked for you. Really relaxing holiday. AC in bedrooms for sleeping. Only gripe beds were firm, as seems to be the way in Bali. Walking into town is a bit hazardous, but go the back way thru little laneways via Bintang supermarket. A bit longer but nicer.
We loved our stay at Bulan Mas, situated down a quiet lane and close to restaurants and transport.Loved our breakfasts cooked by Wuk each day, having a washing machine was a bonus,the pool was great, the privacy, cleanliness, loved the Balinese decor that is what you come to Bali for, not cement jungles.
Only a short walk into Ubud, we walked it most days, 20 minutes and we are mature.
Close to Bayu's Kitchen, we found the food good and a good variety as well.
