“Blissful”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Ok, where do I start? With the fireflies darting through the rice paddies at night? Or maybe with watching the the full moon rise from our deck? No, those things were nature at her best.
Maybe it was with the short delay at checkout that initially I cursed, but later was grateful for as we were shown through our room with its canopied bed and the bath thoughtfully run and sprinkled with frangipanis.
What can I say? Our stay was blissful and perfect for a special occasion.
The meals are good, the service is friendly, the shuttle bus makes getting in and out of Ubud convenient.

Room Tip: We had a rice fields room. There is an extension going on near the pool, but we had no noise of it f...

A beautiful resort just outside of Ubud with stunning views. Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on hols in Bali. Lovely rooms with their very own garden, great food, lovely staff and the spa was great. Thoroughly recommended for anyone looking for a little bit luxury whilst staying in Ubud. Shuttle bus service was great into the town so no need for taxis. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: We had one night in a suite near the pool hut actually preferred room 7 nearer the reception

The first night we stayed at Wapa Di Ume we were subjected to an all night concrete pour on a neighboring property that started at 9pm and lasted until 5:30am. I unfortunately have a very intimate knowledge of the sounds of a concrete truck driving on and off the site, being whistled and yelled into position, connected to the pouring equipment, then concrete pumps being revved up, concrete and gravel sloosh, detachment of pouring equipment, revving of truck to leave site, then 5 mins later the arrival of the next truck on repeat on a 30 minute loop. It was impossible sleep.

We took this up with management who provided the cursory apology but no acceptance of any responsibility to have done anything different but charge me the usual full rate for the room. In my opinion a complete lack of business ethics by the owners.

If that is not bad enough, you should know that Wapa Di Ume are also directly contributing to the problem with a large extension with construction sounds 7am - 5pm daily, power tools when I was there but undoubtedly concrete pours on occasion also. This extension is directly across the river from the pool area so it don't look like the pictures anymore. The scale of the extension is huge so expect this problem to continue for the rest of 2014.

Other than the noise pollution, the resort is pretty good but not great for the price.

We first stayed at Waka in 2011. July weather is perfect. The accommodation is a luxury retreat set in the hills overlooking the rice fields of Ubud. The staff are so friendly & welcoming that we go back every year to visit. The food is excellent. The location is perfect only a couple of minutes from the heart of Ubud, which has the best markets. Highly recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting to experience a Bali Village.

We stayed in a chalet with a little garden and a raised verandah for sitting out and enjoying the views over the paddy fields. Room service was excellent and we could have breakfast (or any other meal) served on our verandah. We liked the restaurant because the staff were so nice. Very friendly and polite. The food was excellent, and the place spotlessly clean. It is run by the owner himself who made himself known to us and made us very welcome. We can thoroughly recommend this resort for a peaceful time. There are good trips out if you wish!

March 2014. This was our sixth visit to the wonderful Wapa di Ume - since probably 2002. Once again we stayed in the peaceful and palatial family villa with lovely pool plus roomy bale for playing Scrabble overlooking the bright green rice fields. I don't think I could even contemplate staying anywhere else in Ubud. The Waka (as it used to be known) was as always fantastic and it was so good to return, to see some of our favourite people, Respa, darling Sudiari and Laksmini. The staff are all charming. The owner made a point of introducing himself to us and extending a warm welcome. We are always so beautifully looked after at the Waka. It is definitely a home away from home. The location remains superb especially for early morning walks up to the left once outside the Waka to enjoy scenes of lively village life amidst the picturesque rice fields. Our all-time most favourite breakfast; the Mie Goreng with extra freshly chopped chillies on the side, coconutty black rice with extra palm sugar and papaya with lime fruit drink was as perfect as ever. So good. We had the best time making the most of our holiday to celebrate a very special birthday with daughter and son-in-law. Everything was delicious; the heavenly Balinese massages, the swims in the lovely main pool, gentle walks in the glorious gardens, chicken sate cooking class and great afternoon teas - Nyepi Day was extra special. A big thankyou to all at the Waka. I can't wait to come back again sooner than later ... sampai jumpa lagi. Terimah kasih banjak untuk liburan yang paling baik!. And a big thankyou for the birthday cake plus singing ... what a surprise.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are wonderful. We love the family villa.

Very disappointed. Expected so much especially for what we paid. Booked a family pool villa. They have two, one is really nice, the other, the one we were given is terrible. Right next to the restaurant, very noisy, dark and the pool is a joke. It is certainly NOT what they show in the brochures. Beware of where you stay in at this hotel. There is a new resort being built very close at the back of the hotels main pool so very noisy with construction work and unfortunately a terrible view. It is a long way out of Ubud to walk, they do have a courtesy bus but this was did not always turn up and we had to ring and wait.
I would NOT recommend this hotel or ever stay here again.

Room Tip: Better value hotels closer to Ubud
