“Peaceful”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

Quiet, relaxed and luxurious. Loved the room, we had a river veiw, villa 10. Lots of stairs but so worth the view. Service is excellent, always willing to go the extra mile. Food was amazing and staff are very friendly and welcoming. We'll be back.

The villa is just great!!! I will definitely come back again.

My villa is facing the river and valley. I love the view so much especially when i soak myself inside the infinity pool.

The hotel has 15 staffs and 10 villas. Every staff is so friendly and helpful. They are very prompt on fulfilling your requests.

Besides, the villa serve complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea which you can either enjoy them in room or in the restaurant.

The hotel room is clean and have iPod docking speakers, dvd player and LED tv.

Besides, the semi openair bathroom is good for you to stay close to the nature.

You can rent a scooter from the reception and ride to Ubud town to enjoy food and shopping, only 70000 rupiah.

Only problem that I encounter is the wifi issue, which is a known issue to Apple products.

We had been to Bali and stayed at Black Penny Villas, Ubud from 19 March 2014 to 21 March 2014. This hotel has 10 villas on the slope of River Ayung. It offers an excellent view of the opposite side of the slope and the river from the individual pool side of the villa. Rooms are very good and clean, the service of the staff is excellent and always with a smile, inhouse breakfast is good. In a word, staying here was a pleasure for us.

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at this resort.
We wanted to have a little bit of luxury, romance and privacy and this Resort has it all!
Rooms are tastefully decorated, spacious without losing the balinese soul.
Waking up with this view leaves you speechless.
Each Villas comes with its own infinity pool and terrace and there is enough space from one Villa to another to ensure maximum privacy.
Unfortunately we could not agree more with the negative reviews regarding the bathroom.
I would have expected something more luxurious. Floor was often flooded with water and slippery. Toiletries very poor. Shampoo and Soap was in a big container used by everyone.
No conditioner, no lotion..

Loved the breakfast, the nasi goreng and balinese pancakes .
Service was really good.

Good value for money, perfect for a romantic getaway but do not expect 100% Luxury because you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose a room situated near the top, better view and easy to access.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at this resort. We chose it because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.

The best part of this resort is certainly the views. Villas literally cling to the very steep incline of the mountain, offering uninterrupted and stunning views of the rainforest in the distance. Below is the Ayung River - famous for white water rafting. Each villa comes equipped with its own infinity plunge pool. The super king size bed is exceptionally comfortable and top quality linen is used on the bed.

The en-suite bathroom sadly does not live up to any kind of luxury and the open shower contained in the bathroom meant that the floor was often flooded with water. The single vanity looked sad and the deep stone bath looked out of place squashed into this small space. The bathroom is open on one side, which also meant that the bathroom floor was wet when it rained. The toiletries were certainly lacking. There was no conditioner provided and the tiniest and cheapest bars of soap were supplied. (These ran out as did the under supply of toilet paper). A resort of this calibre should certainly ensure adequate supplies are provided.

Breakfast at this resort was disappointing and it appeared that there were some staff training issues in the restaurant.

The public areas are seriously limited. Apart from a few chairs in the lobby area, the dining room is very sparse and uncomfortable. Apart from this area, there is nowhere to sit and relax.

We occupied villa 5, which fortunately was situated near the top. The outdoor stairs to the other villas below are extremely steep and without any cover in case of rain.

They offer 2 shuttles into Ubud daily.

The overall experience was good, but not brilliant. It is, however, fair to say that we believe we received good value for our money.

The room is to die for!

Its absolute value for money for the price you pay.

The panoramic views of lush green forest ahead of you are hard to capture on camera or in words. The sunrises and sunsets are just magical. The plunge pool is nice and deep (be careful if you are travelling with kids) we just loved it though.

The bed is super comfortable and the large open bathroom is a nice touch. The interiors are a contemporary take on Balinese architecture. Very sheek!

The food menu is limited but reasonably priced and good to taste. There are a lot of options to explore in Ubud city which is just 10 mins on bike. They also provide free cab service to the city once a day. You can hire a bike and explore at ease if you wish to at a nominal price.

The staff is courteous and always helpful to say the least.

Its a great bet if you are looking for a luxurious stay with your loved one without burning a hole in your pocket!

Room Tip: We stayed at the pool with river facing.(No.9). which was the room far down. They have the best view...

The Black Penny villas were beyond words! Between the staff and the insane villa views i don't think there is a better place to stay in all of Ubud. The black penny villas are a tucked away gem. Each villas views face right into the deep balinese rainforest. These villas were VERY clean and gave you a taste of balinese culture. The bathrooms were traditional inside outside bathrooms with a large soaking tub!! The bed faces two sliding glass doors that go to your private infinity pool. Very clean and well maintained pool. The rooms far exceeded our expectations not to mention how friendly and personable the staff was. We ate at the restaurant almost every night and enjoyed the delicious food! I loved the location of the villas....you could walk down hundreds of stairs right from the reception area and be surrounded by rice patty fields and the lush green of the rainforest. Just a short right to monkey forest road about 5 mins, and they provide a shuttle. I never wanted to leave. Best luxury villas and so well prices. 20 STAR!!!!

Room Tip: Every room is perfect.
