Nefatari Exclusive Villas

Reviewed 27 September 2013

I gave this resort five stars because it was such a unique stay. The Villas were surrounded by rice patties and were a sort trip from Ubud town center. We stayed in a two room villa with a private pool. We had lunch by the pool in the outdoor dining area, ate breakfast in the main terrace, also outdoors and showered out doors. The service from the staff was absolutely amazing and the daily fee included free airport transfer and transfer to your next hotel, as well as wi-fi, shuttles into town, breakfast, water and soft drinks.

This was a quiet relaxing place to spend time with family. We didn't turn on the TV once (well I think my parents did when they watched our 2 year old for us while we had a date night!). We enjoyed relaxing outside at night while the baby slept and swimming in the pool a number of times. We were a little nervous about the outdoor living as we are not outdoorsy people, but we quite liked it and it was the perfect two or three night getaway. We would definitely return, just as a family of three. The staff were great with our daughter. I don't have much else to say other than the villas are beautiful and completely Bali. The gardens and architecture were gorgeous and soothing and relaxing. Oh and as everyone already mentioned - you have to try the banana pancakes!

A very friendly, clean and welcoming place to stay. Service was excellent, the staff were all very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a one bed villa for five nights and didn't want to leave! Each villa comes with a private pool, and the en-suite outside bathroom is amazing. For those that are afraid that Nefatari is a little far from central Ubud, the complimenatry pick up/drop off service provided made up for the distance (5 mins drive). Super relaxing and easy to fall in love with this place. The villa's and the grounds are all very clean and well maintained. They also offered complimentary drinks all through the day and night as well as breakfast which can be served in your villa. Would definately recommend Nefatari to others and return again! :-)

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa Mitir, it was perfect.

Like everyone else it really is great here
The pick up service and free drops off in ubud is fantastic
Yes it's a little out of town, but it's no problem. If you are after some peace and quiet this place is for you
We rented the 2 bed villa with a 16 year old and 10 year old son. The pool was lovely and the outdoor setting wonderful
Service was outstanding
Stay here, it's memorable

We spent 5 amazing nights in a one-bedroom villa (Jepun) and we didn't want to leave! We travelled with our 2 young daughters and they loved it as well. Having our own pool was a real highlight, as was having so much private living space, both inside and out. Every staff member was so helpful and friendly, nothing was ever too much to ask. Breakfast and afternoon tea were just amazing and the option of having it delivered and set up in your villa was so nice. Our outdoor bathroom was amazing as we had never experienced anything like it. We were a bit surprised at how 'outdoor' it was, but we quickly got used to it and it was so nice. Getting a drive into Ubud and a pick up was so easy and we never had to wait too long. After being in busy Ubud, it was so peaceful to get back to our villa and our own space. It was a truly amazing place and it has set the standard very high, not sure how we'll top it (or even compare) in the future! Thank you to all the amazing staff and the fussing you did over our daughters. We hope to be back one day.

My friend and I stayed at Nefatari on Oct. 2011, so this review is long overdue.

Made, the owner picked us up from our hotel in Sanur. He was a little late but that's because traffic can be terrible in Bali. During my check-in, I asked about bug repellent lotion and without hesitation, the lady offered to pick some up for us from town. We just pay them what it cost.

Upon arriving to our room, we immediately felt the Bali vibe. The villas were so well built. I loved the furnitures and decor. The room was spotless. The bathroom is open air. I understand this might not suit everyone but we loved it! They come in before sunset and light incense in the bathroom to keep the bugs away. Very thoughtful.

Breakfast was a delight. Some of our favorites were, congee, french toast and oatmeal. I know these are very simple dishes but they were so well made. I still dream about their breakfast. You can either have it delivered to your villa or you can eat at the restaurant area. Honestly, we couldn't wait to have breakfast every morning and I'm not even a breakfast person. As soon as 7am hits, we call our order in. They used palm sugar in their oatmeal, which gives it a different flavor. We loved it so much we asked where we can pick some up. Again, they immediately offered to pick some up for us. Not knowing how much a kilo actually weight, my friend ordered 2 kilos and I ordered one. It was too much! I still can't get my oatmeal to taste as good as theirs thou.

The unlimited ride to town was an excellent bonus. Since we stayed for 5 nights, we also received transport to the airport. What a great value!

I can go on and on about their service but you will know what I mean when you stay there. I travelled quit a bit and this was by far the best service I have ever received.

We finally booked Nefatari for this trip and their amazing hospitality was extended from the moment we touched down. Our flight was delayed for 1.5 hours but my email to them went unread so the poor driver had to wait endlessly at the airport till we arrived! Check in was a breeze with welcome lemon grass drinks and they even offered to cook us a supper of nasi goreng - they roped in the security guard for this!

We stayed at the single room villa and double room villa - some hits and misses with general comments like bed being too soft but otherwise, a really tranquil stay. We fell in love with their roomy toilets with touches of stone pavements and open air areas by the end of our 3 night stay.

Breakfast is always a joyful affair - order as much as you want! I loved the banana pancakes and mee goreng best from their adequate list of items. For complete privacy, have them at the villa itself.

If time permits, go for a dip in the private pool too.

The on demand shuttle service within ubud was also godsent, always so prompt and available.

Well done nefatari exclusive villas, I cannot wait to be back!!

Our family of 3 (2 adults plus 2 year old) stayed in Villa Mitir for 2 nights at the end of our holiday in Bali - it was a perfect way to finish up. The villa was extremely comfortable (right amount of luxury without pretension) and the staff were excellent. It was lovely being able to have breakfast poolside in your own private villa and the on-demand shuttle worked like a dream. Nothing was too much of an ask and the manager (Made) went out of his way to accommodate our requests including a late checkout, as we had a late night flight out of Bali (our villa was booked that day, but we were moved to another villa, which meant our daughter could have her afternoon nap in airconditioned comfort and we were able to relax by the pool for the day, which was a much nicer way to finish the holiday then killing time in town).
