We went as family of 5, 2 teenagers and one 9yr old girl. I was worried that our children may not enjoy since it is not Kuta or happening area. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Very beautiful, clean setting and good personalised service by staff. Pak Made, Pak Agong and his team were all very very helpful and making sure that we are comfortable. Breakfast can be brought to you and you eat as much as you want ... no additional charge, drink as much as you want, the fridge top up without additional charges... fruits as well. Free shuttle to town and they offer good advice on where to go buy good purchases. We stayed 5 days 4 nights... it is not enough. Total relaxation, no rush, no crowds like Kuta Beach (horrendous is how I describe Kuta), stress free... Pak Made and team, thanks for your excellent service and a wonderful place.... we will be back for more!

This villa certainly exceeded expectations in every single way.

Service here is amazing, and we dealt with 2 staff Ari and Agung, and they truly look after every single need end-to-end. Ask anything from them, and they will definitely try their best to deliver - at no extra charge. All the other staff also have the same super servicee attitude.

Feel like some fresh tropical fruit juice by the pool? no extra charge
See something in the minibar you like? no extra charge
Want to drop by Ubud town and need transport? no extra charge
Whatever you want for breakfast? no extra charge
Feel peckish during the day and want some tea and snacks? no extra charge

All these make for a hassle free holiday where you don't have to keep looking over your shoulder to watch for hidden charges. Just do what you want, and enjoy at no extra charge,

We got upgraded to the 2 room Sandat Villa which was super spacious, and had a magnificent pool. I will say however that I wish the bed mattress were proper king size mattress rather than 2 mattresses pushed together as one, which is still very comfy, but not optimal.

Location is away from hustle and bustle, but still good enough to visit nearby shops by foot, and Ubud town is just minutes away from the hotel - which provides free shuttle services to an fro town - on demand.

What I liked best: Service. As mentioned above - spectacular
What I liked least: Could not get lobby wifi from my room, had to go to lobby (This was not a big problem by any means - but would have been great to get some wifi in the rooms)

My advice is to book directly with the hotel where possible and take up their special packages detailed here http://www.indo.com/hotels/nefatari/packages.html for better value.

Also, if you're planning on going out on tour or taking some more adventurous activities, ask the hotel staff if they can get special rates for any of the activities. We managed really good rates for private guided tours and whitewater rafting by going through the staff

Finally - ask for the newer Villas - its worth it.

You want to experience the Bali we used to know?, stay here at Nefatari Villas. Fabulous service, good rooms, great pool areas and quality breakfasts. It's not 5 star but it's out of the way and you are guaranteed to be woken with early morning country sounds and smells from the adjoining rice paddies and farms. Great early morning walks, beat the mist and see the spectacular mountains in the distance. It's about 3kms to Ubud and rather hilly but well worth walking to town at least once. Nafatari provide a vehicle anytime you want picking up or dropping off in town, a really good service. With 18 staff and 5 villas you do not want for much. Congratulations Made your great team made every effort to accomodate every request we made from borrowing the laptop to check flights and even removing a large lizard from our room with loads of smiles and laughter. Terrifiic breakfast on the balcony and the french toast is the best in town.
We loved our stay here and will return next year for the 2 bed villa, our 7 year old daughter loved the cats and the very relaxed environment. We moved to Nusa Dua for 6 nights at our usual resort but it did not feel right after Ubud, theres just something about the place that will make you want to go back.

If you're looking for ultimate luxury and pampering, Nefatari is probably not the right place for you.

But for everyone else looking for a reasonably priced villa with your own pool, and more importantly great service and excellent overall experience, we would highly recommend Nefatari.

Everyone has said everything good about it -- Service, shuttle service, snacks...

So other comments:
- Room service choice is limited but tasty. But why not just hop onto the shuttle, have a good meal in town (we recommend a visit to Mosaic for a great dinner experience, though slightly pricey) and have the car come back and pick you up when you are done. Shuttle service ends around 10pm.
- We happened to hit rainy season and electricity was knocked out for the whole area. Can't blame the resort for that though.
- Staff was very helpful from dinner reservations to day activities bookings (ATV, white water rafting). Not high tech but they depend on a trusty notebook to pass notes between shifts. We had asked the morning staff on duty to order a smoked duck at Bebek Bengil for the next day, and when we returned in the afternoon and checked with the front desk, the afternoon staff on duty promptly flicked the notebook and confirmed all set.
- Free WiFi

Absolutely enjoyed our stay (honeymoon package) at Nefatari and would highly recommend it for couples and family. Great value for money.

Following positive reviews on this property, we decided to call and make the reservation. We almost didn't managed to have them on our period of stay but Mr Made made it happen by offering their last villa - "Pucuk Villa".
He informed us that the villa has a slightly smaller pool but other features remains the same.
When we arrived, the villa was perfectly fine - it looks like a miniature Balinese little cottage and a perfect getaway for those who are looking for serenity.

With the price that we were paying - it is indeed the best value for money compared to other property with the same price range and on top of everything, the genuineness of the entire staff made us felt like it's our second home. Mr Made has been so patient to drive us around and always with his sincere smile, he never forget to ask how was our day, how did we sleep, and even did we get a good buy on the market.

There are a lot of small yet personalized service that touched our heart during our stay and we highly recommend Nefatari for those who are looking for an amazing escapade with a decent price and best value for money.

Thank you to the Nefatari family...

We are a family with two young children. We have been Bali 4 times, this was the best. We stayed at their Mawar unit and it was absolutely wonderful. Good privacy and very good staff service. In particular we would like to commend Ary for his exemplary service, His good service started from picking us up from the airport right thru the last day we stayed at the villa. We were very impressed with the service provided especially to Ary who took the trouble to keep an eye on our young children (who were having take out pizza) while we went out for a bite & booked us good day trips that was much cheaper than outside. We could go on and on but suffice to say the service we received from Ary and his colleague was 5 star & above. Their willingness to help & to accommodate our request really made the trip so fabulous. The massage was very good and at par with the spas @ Ubud. We appreciate warm & genuine service and that is what we get @ Nefatari and thank you, Ary.
