When we booked the wrong dates at our first hotel in Ubud and they could not accommodate us, we were given the option to stay at Villa Kelusa. Skeptical of doing a villa rental, since it was only my husband and I on our honeymoon, we ended up being thoroughly spoiled and treated like royalty by Wayan and his staff! The villa is located just outside of the bustle of Ubud town, so you can really relax and enjoy the ameneties (provided you aren't scurrying around trying to take everything this beautiful area has to offer!). The grounds are beautifully kept, and each villa has it's own private infinity pool looking out towards the rice terrace. There are two villas on the property, however at the time we were there, we were the only ones occupying the whole space, so we had access to both pools. The villas themselves are stunning, with ample closet space and very comfortable beds. There are common areas with televisions and lounging space as well. You can absolutely stretch out and make yourself at home here, rather than feel cramped in a small hotel room. The team went above and beyond to ensure our comfort - even arranging for a private, English speaking driver who drove us most days, and handling all of our restaurant and tour reservations. We loved our stay at Villa Kelusa, and look forward to staying here again!! Thank you Wayan!
The grounds, accommodation and views at the villa are beyond stunning. Our stay was peaceful and we were well looked after by the accommodating, professional staff. The staff at the villa are simply awesome, special mention has to go to the lovely lady who cooks the most delicious meals. I can not fault a single thing about the villa, staff or facilities - it’s all just a perfect jungle paradise
We were incredibly fortunate to have our wedding at Villa Kelusa and it was the best decision we could have made. The accommodation is impeccable and the surrounds are more than stunning. All of our guests couldn't quite believe the magic that is in the air and it's hard to put into words. Beautiful Wayan and his phenomenal staff went above and beyond and nothing asked was too much effort. They each contributed to our 4 day stay in their own ways and have left us with the most special of memories. We will be forever thankful for all of their hard work and for allowing us into their lives at Kelusa. The village and all of its people (Wayan and staff included) will always hold a piece of our hearts and we can't wait to one day return.
Villa Kelusa is a very special place. The property is set in a stunning location, looking out over the rice terraces and jungle below. The villas are amazing with no skimping anywhere on comfort or luxury; absolutely everything has been thought of, including the fantastic views from each bedroom. There were eight of us staying, but there is so much space you wouldn’t have known it. We could all get together when we wanted to in one of the big outdoor entertainment areas or each find some peace and quiet to sit a relax, and the food was superb.
The villa is rural enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Balinese countryside, but close enough to take advantage of all that Ubud and the surrounding areas has to offer. We had different trips organised for each day which catered for all of us (children to grandparents). Sunrise at volacanos, surfing, temple visits, shopping, bamboo forests, cultural trips, we even managed to get in a 60km and 80km road bike ride with a local guide. Some days we had three different excursions going on at the same time to various locations.
Above all, what makes this place very special, is Wayan and the rest of the amazing team. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they went out of their way to ensure our stay was one we will never forget and will talk about for a long time to come.
The only downside? We had to leave to come home.
Villa Kelusa truly is a paradise. The breathtaking views from every vantage point alone capture your heart on arrival. We were greeted warmly by Wayan and his amazing staff and immediately made to feel welcome and at home in this delightful oasis. The food was superb, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were stunning, spacious, and pure comfort with to die for views from every window. The pools were warm and inviting. Sitting in any of the many outdoor lounge areas, enjoying the surroundings and good company was truly serene.
We took several outings—from shopping in the market in nearby Ubud, swinging high above the world, visiting the Monkey Forest, playing with elephants, to attending a ceremony at a temple. Every trip was arranged by Wayan and always a pleasure. He truly aims to please.
This is by far my favorite vacation of all time, one we will definitely repeat. Of course, we will stay at Villa Kelusa. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Stayed at this amazing property for 2 nights with my girlfriend
- Villas itself were absolutely stunning, they thought of every single detail
- Location cannot be beaten with beautiful views over rice fields and jungles
- The service was beyond expectation where the team went out of their way to help whenever necessary
- The food which was served and set in our villa for both breakfast and dinner was prepared to perfection
All in all a flawless stay.
Thank you Kelusa team!
The villa is really beautiful - remote and quiet while having world class amenities. What made the stay really stand out for me, though, was the incredible hospitality provided by Wayan. He was an extremely kind and thoughtful host, and he even helped me to rent a motor scooter!
