“Indulgent Luxury full stop”
Reviewed 18 January 2009

We were delighted with our Kayumanis stay, the private villa was faultless, the design totally private and the resort grounds so ubud like..in a valley. The SPA treatments are first class.

What really made our stay special was the staff, the ones I remember was our butler Akiko seemed to almost appear at the right moment planning with us like a friend would, the waiters Widjaya and Putu who treated us like family rather than hotel guest and the really professional spa therapists. You will not go wrong at this place, it is really hard to pin down what is right with this place as everything is just so amazing. I'd higly recommend this place over a brandname hotel...especially if it's your honeymoon.

Note for the ladies, the spa treatments here use extremely high quality ingredients as compared with another place we stayed at.

We stayed at Kayumanis Ubus and Nusa Dua in September 2008. The service at Kayumanis Ubud, in particular, was unsurpassed: attentive personal waiters and receptionists, and cars to take you wherever you want to go in the area. On top of this: I absent-mindedly left my girlfriend's camera in the car that drove us to the taxi. Luckily, friends were going to Bali a couple of weeks later, staying in Nusa Dua. The staff at Kayumanis Ubud really went the extra mile - they drove the camera from Ubud to Nusa Dua, hand-delivered it to the reception at our friends’ hotel, then even called the hotel later to speak directly to our friends to ensure the camera had reached them.

Kayumanis Ubud is a collection of individual villas. Each villa is enclosed within a surrounding wall and comprises a bedroom villa, an open-sided lounge area (with mozzy nets), a private swimming pool, decking area, and outside bathroom. It has recently expanded, with extra villas and a bridge constructed over the river on which it perches, to an area with a lounge area with infinity pool, and spa villas that all enjoy views over a paddy-covered valley. The newer villas are in the same style as the older ones, but being seven years newer have more modern flourishes and feel yet more luxurious.

Nusa Dua Kayumanis is also beautiful. It’s based on the same concept of individual villas as at Ubud (also with private pools etc) but the styling is a touch more modern and minimalist. Clean, crisp architectural lines are fringed with lush green planting. The restaurant/bar - a box of glass, some bamboo and steel - forms a striking centre-piece to the reception area. It sounds terrible but looks fantastic.

Kayumanis Ubud offers you the chance to relax luxuriously in the mainland countryside, with everything that Ubud has to offer in easy reach (be warned it is a 10-15 minute drive away - but that is easy enough when you have complimentary cars to drop off and collect you). Kayumanis Nusa Dua is great if you want to get away from everything and wallow in luxury with a book on a beach/by the privacy of your own pool. Both sites were popular with honeymooners but you don't need to be newly-wed to enjoy them (we weren't).

We only ate breakfast at each, preferring to explore local options for other meals, but juding from this I expect lunch and evening meals would have been good. Breakfast had the potential to be enormous (you choose as many of the various continental, American or Asian-style courses as you want) and was well-prepared.

According to information we saw, Kayumanis Nusa Dua was certified as adhering to ‘green’ or ‘eco’ tourism standards by an appropriate body and Ubud was in the process of getting accredited. If this is important to you, check the latest position with the relevant site directly - they are very good at responding to emails.

Both Ubud and Kayumanis are definitely recommended - Ubud slightly more so for the level of service in returning our camera.

  • Liked — Beautiful architectural style and execution and true understanding of customer service
  • Disliked — The price! But it was a blingy-luxy splurge.
