“Wonderful place, wonderful people”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

My husband and I stayed at Made's beautiful accommodation and loved every minute of it. We ended up extending our stay due to the beauty of Ubad and our hosts. Try the home-made Nasi Goreng for breakfast, it is by far the best we tried.

The pictures on this website don't do the place justice. The well crafted furniture is made by a local architect, who we got the pleasure to meet. The bathrooms are all marble and the outdoor kitchen and living room make the Bali lifestyle a great experience.

This villa have more than you expect from the amount you have to pay for. Very valuable for a private villa in ubud yet very satisfying.

You will feel at your own home due to the privacy from the villa have given. Breakfast at your own table, swim at your own swimming pool.

With beautiful scenery, rice fields and those tropical trees, this villa is completely satisfying.

P.s. : would be great if a rice cooker is available at room

The villa I stayed in had a pool and was new and nicely furnished. There was no drinking water included. Shuttle downtown had to be paid extra paid. Breakfast was nice - not great. The place has potential!

Room Tip: All roons are close to a road. Not loud - but you could hear ...

It is so hard to judge sometimes by pictures but we ended up loving the 2 bedroom villa with private pool. View was spectacular - palm trees and rice terraces in the distance. Tucked away from main road - modern, relaxing, clean, and comfortable. They brought coils every night to manage bugs but I was shocked there were barely any to begin with (last day had minor problems with ants, but overall, no biggie).

Location - great, easy access to downtown Ubud, the cultural center of Bali. Technically, you can walk from here, but easier to have a driver drop you off - only 5-10 minutes away (nominal fee).

Customer service - I Made was super responsive and accommodating prior to and during our stay, even while he was traveling himself on vacation. Staff was super attentive and accommodating as well. Requested massages, and next morning, three ladies came over with cushions and did one hr massages for 150,000 IDR each by the pool. Wonderful and relaxing. Great way to get settled in and de-stress from travel.

Complimentary breakfast - limited menu but very yummy (especially the omelets). Nice treat to sit by the pool as they brought breakfast in to our kitchen/dining area within the villa.

Transportation - they had drivers available to take us around, as well as to/from airport transfer (approx 1 hour to airport - 300,000 IDR/$30 USD) - uber convenient. Drivers did not speak English very well, not good as tour guides, but enough to get around.

We traveled for two weeks through Southeast Asia (Singapore, Bali, Thailand), and overall, it was our favorite from a comfort, location, value, and customer service perspective.

Room Tip: Villa with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, and private pool (accommodates 4 guests comfortably) - just gorgeous

We stayed at Villa Cilinaya for 7 days and the experience was spectacular.

First - the Room

Clean everything and super-comfy bed. The bathroom was pristine and everything worked well. The only knock on the entire place, and it's a small one, is the hot water lasted for about 5 minutes before it got cool. It didn't bother us at all, but if you like super-long showers it might be an issue for you.

Outside of the room is a kitchen and we cooked each night. Breakfast was brought here as well. There is a private lounge area that you share with one other if anybody is staying there. We had the entire place to ourselves for our stay.

Next - The Staff

I swear, Balinese people are the nicest and happiest people in the World. Made was great and went above and beyond. "We need an adapter" I said. "Oh, let me get you one. Anything else that you'd like?" Made responded. He brought us a super-sharp knife to cut with as well.

We didn't get Made to book any tours for us because we like exploring on our own with a motorbike but he was there to help with anything that we need. His nephew owns a travel agency and prices were the same as you would get in town.

The 2 who clean the room and bring breakfast which you order the night before for free and the security guard are all awesome. They actually helped us plan our tour for the trip.

Location

Cilinaya is about 10 minutes by motorbike outside of Ubud. We rented a motorbike through Made for 50,000/day ($5). The walk takes about an hour -- we did it once and it's fine but you wouldn't want to do it every day. A cab back from town costs 40,000-60,000 (4$-$6).

The Bonus Perks

Mini-bar in the room which you pay for was prices the same as you would buy stuff outside. Nice to have it stocked and have the ability to grab a cold beer when a friend decided to come hang out.

The Internet is super fast. This was a very nice surprise and apparently quite rare in Ubud. The villa next door is also rented by them and if nobody is staying there you're allowed to use the beautiful pool. We had it for 5 days before somebody moved in. They are about a month away from finishing the main pool for the villa and working hard on it so it should actually be done by then.

I've stayed in a lot of places in a lot of countries and this was an excellent find. You can find cheaper places but for the price, the value is unmatched.

I only had two nights at Villa Cilinaya in September last year, so this may be out of date. I loved the environment, which is spacious, clean and private. The Villa is new, and was designed by the owner, incorporating beautiful garden spaces. I had a very large bedroom, outdoor kitchen, and a beautiful and efficient bathroom.
The owners and staff were discreet and helpful, and allow access to the pool, which is part of the more expensive rooms only, if there are no occupants there.
Only criticisms would be the lack of a general use pool, and that breakfast is fairly minimal. After a fair bit of travel in Bali I found many much cheaper places with equal or better breakfast. The coffee was very good though!
