“Bali Suksma Villa - thanks for ???”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

The place was beautiful BUT falsely advertised and definitely not ready for guests.
Firstly we were moved to another area outside of Ubud township. They said on the booking information it was a 5 minute walk to the centre however we were at least at least a 45 minute fast walk on busy roads with no paths. The 'close walking' is why we chose this accommodation.
The 'free shuttle' was not free and In fact expensive by Bali standards and took at least 15 minutes.
There were no sheets on the bed. No towels for showering only beach towels of which one was dirty (I won't elaborate it needed CSI) The villas kitchen had a fridge full of cobwebs and did eventually cool down however there were no glasses to drink from and no clean water.
The staff tried to be friendly but spoke very little Indonesian only Balinese which meant communication was very difficult. Overall. Don't stay here. It was very disappointing.

Reviewed 29 October 2013

We booked in what was supposed to be Bali Suksma Villa1 in Ubud, but then we were sent a text message to say we had been "upgraded". We missed the text so it cost extra for the taxi to then take us to the "upgraded" villa, which they refer to as Bali Suksma Villa2.

Villa 2 is a half hour walk from the bottom of Monkey Forest Road. It seems the villa is actually in another village Nyuh Kuning. Its a pleasant enough walk, but not one we would feel comfortable to do at night - so need to rely on taxis - which was only about 40-50k Rp anyway ($4-5).

When challenged why we were "upgraded" to this outpost location, since we wanted wifi, they said Villa 1 has no wifi (not what it says in the description). As it turned out the wifi in Villa 2 (ground level) was next to useless unless you as good as stood on top of the fence.

The description said included a kitchenette. Not that we really needed it but it would have been nice to at least have a cup and a spoon to make a coffee!! Nice fridge and stove, but not a single piece of cutlery or crockery in the "kitchen" - nothing.

Breakfast was also included - on the description at least, but that was another myth - no mention of it, nor no response to a text and phone call to enquire about it.

The villa 2 was absolutely very clean and modern. It also has this very unique open to the sky water feature and fish pond in the bathroom... that is if you like watching a waterfall while on the toilet or standing in the shower! All very nice and a lovely small pool, but with the basic amenities missing and poor location, Villa 2 to us just didn't stack up to what we were sold - upgrade or no upgrade.

Room Tip: check for upgrades - I suspect it may be a common practice so not sure if this is a bit of con.
