This is a beautiful hotel half way up the 'rice paddy road' (before Blimbing) with great views over the paddy fields - and quite a spectacular location for a pool! Our room was great - huge with a large bathroom and terrace. It was like staying in a botanical garden! We went for a hike through rural Bali - wandering through small villages / temples and rice fields. If you want to retreat from busy Bali, then this is the perfect place for top quality R&R.

OK, I did not sleep there, but I definitely want to try it, since the staff is just soooooooo nice, and the place is absolutely gorgeous. What a view from the restaurant!
Drinks were very good, some of the staff spoke French, and we had a very relaxing moment. Very nicely decorated.

We stayed here with our 2 boys and another family. The villas were comfortable and had the most amazing views over the rice padi fields and the jungle of palm trees. The villas are all arranged on a hill around a pool and all have their own path leading to them, giving a great feeling of privacy. The pool area is calm and relaxing and we enjoyed a few days just unwinding in the peace around the pool. It is wonderful to be away from the hawkers and noise that you experience elsewhere. We were able to explore Bali from here and the drive north to Lovina is the most beautiful in Bali. It took ages because we kept having to stop for photos!!
If you would like a little bit of peaceful paradise in Bali, this is a great place to come.

Kebun Villas is located near to Belimbing village (some distance from Papuan) only 9km up the rice fields road from where it leaves the super busy west coast highway. In this short distance you climb into very scenic paddy terraces country. The hotel itself has a roadside reception/restaurant area - the rooms are in a nice garden setting sloping steeply down a gully to the pool at bottom. Some rice terraces border the pool which gives a nice touch.
Our spacious room had a beautiful bathroom (but water supply was a bit dodgy), tea and coffee facilities, a tv (no English channels in a hotel that had mainly non-Asian guests), and a large balcony with views of the well tended grounds. The big bed was comfy but had an all or nothing doona - okay for just before sunrise when the room had cooled but not so great for earlier when a top sheet would have done the job nicely.
The small pool and its surroundings was very nice - there was an adjacent building with some gym equipment, a dart board and plenty of games.
The restaurant was disappointing. Although the lights of south Bali and south east Java looked sweet at night, we found prices were 50% higher than we are used to paying for this standard of eating (the 21% inclusive taxes didn't help), and dishes tended to arrive only luke warm as if they had been standing for some time before delivery. The Inclusive breakfast was basic and less filling than at our $28 Kuta hotel on arrival (note: herbal tea only).
There were less expensive restaurants 6, 14 and 16 minutes walk up the road. These had sweet views of the rice terraces.
Kebun's beer frig was broken when we visited (warm Bintang) as was the credit card machine.
A plus was the attentive hard working staff.
There wasn't a lot to do at Kebun Villas - it did not have the scenic variety and circular lane walkways of the Sideman rice terraces area of east Bali. I feel 2 days would be sufficient although if it would be a perfect place for honeymooners or people just wanting somewhere quiet to kick back and relax by the pool or on their bungalow veranda.

Room Tip: There were a few rooms under the restaurant - I feel these might suffer some traffic noise at night...

Everything from the service, to the room amenities, to delicious food, and views that put you in heaven were perfect at Kebun Villa.

Deddy (owner) is a charismatic man that we enjoyed many conversations with during our stay. He picked us up and dropped us back in Ubud after a 4 nights stay. Deddy has designed and made much of the furnishings found around the villa. He has also collected many objects of Indonesian art and antiques to decorate the property with.

Our room was comfortable and roomy with a huge bathroom. Air-con was not necessary because the temperature at this elevation is cooler. Since I'm an early morning riser, the provided coffee/tea service was much appreciated. I loved drinking a cup of coffee on the balcony gazing at the gorgeous view.

We ate all meals in the restaurant. Everything we were served was delicious and well-presented.

We aren't normally the type to laze around a pool, but we couldn't resist spending time at Kebun's pool near the rice paddy! So perfect.

The views are just amazing from many spots on the property.

Thank you, Deddy, for sharing your piece of paradise with us!!!!

It takes 90 mins to get there from Kuta depending on the imfamous Bali traffic but once you are there it is a little spot to relax and enjoy cooler air, peace and quiet, spacious rooms with great views AND pretty good Indonesian food too in the restaurant perched high on the hill. If you are driving past on route to the north coast then stop for refreshments and a relaxing view all the way to Kuta. There's a terrific little shop there too for handicrafts - nice selection of quality stuff.

Room Tip: Check them out first cos they are all different - enjoy a good view!

We would not soon forget this hotel. The location is in a very quiet area and the hotel has beautiful gardens. The reception and restaurant are near the road. To get to the room you need to take stairs (through the gardens) downstairs and further downstairs for the swimming pool.
The reception and restaurant are packed with great art.
One downside was that the beds were a bit hard and there was no airco (only a fan).
