“Came for Yoga and Loved Furama”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Came here for a week long yoga/vacation with a group of yoga students. This is a very nice hotel. I shared a two villa complex with a friend. We each had our own villa with a shared outside table area and yard with pool.

This is Bali so there is an outdoor aspect, especially the bathrooms, which are partly open to the sky, so one must be prepared for nocturnal visitors. I had a large toad in residence in the planter. This did not bother me at all but might put off some. Just keep the door to the room closed at all times.

The room itself was very comfortable and the shared pool a perfect cool off place (there is a also a larger pool on site). The restaurant is also good here. I found all the staff to be really friendly and helpful. Also used the spa one day and had a good massage.

This place is out of Ubud so be prepared to drive in if you want nightlife. Cabfare is cheap and the ride is not too long. If you want to explore by day and have a calm refuge to return to at night this is the place.

Myself and three girlfriends stayed at Furama Villas & Spa Udbud from the 15/3-25/3 2014. We had the "Deluxe Villa" with our own pool and kitchen facilities. The rooms were spacious and clean and the interior and exterior were decorated in true Balinese style. We had an outside shower surrouded by high walls and greenery. My only complaint was there was no were to hang a towel or robe ( a couple of hooks on the wall would have been useful). We were given a welcome drink and cold face towel on arrival and after having everything explained to us were taken to our villa on a golf buggy. There were no sunbeds around our pool so we asked if we could have some and four were brought to us without delay. We took advantage of the "Free" shuttle into and out of Ubud which ran around every 1 and 1/2 hrs. All our tours were arranged by the reception staff. The meals were lovely and we had the choice of dining in the restaurant which overlooked the main pool and rice fields or having them brought to our villa. We had a lovely massage which was complimentary and very relaxing. We went on a walking tour around the rice fields also complimentary and guided by "Occa" one of the friendly staff who was very informative. We enjoyed our stay at Furama Ubud and would not hesitate to recommend it to future travelers.

We stay in Furuma villas & spa Ubud from 11/3-14/3

Complimentary transfer from the airport to the villa was make available to us. it was stated in the document 2W complimentary transfer to airport. (take note of this)

My girlfriend and I arrived in the airport. we was greeted by the hotel staff, he was a very friendly guy. In the car, we told him that we were hungry, and wishes to have a meal before heading over to the hotel. He did as he was told and bring us over and bought us over to Jimbaran beach telling us that all of the price of food at this location are the same and they all sell the same thing.

After our lunch, we continue our journey toward furuma hotel, however the same driver ask us weather we are interested to buy silver in bali, as the price here are a lot cheaper. We kindly rejected the driver and told him that we are tired and wish to go back to the hotel to rest. Despite telling him that, an hour later he continue asking us if we would like to get some silver again.

He also ask us weather we got ourself a driver in bali. we told him yes we did. He asked us about the price, and replied us that he would gladly provide us the same service at the same rate that we book our driver assuming our driver did not turn up the next day.

When we reach the hotel, we were greeted by the staff, he offer to carry our luggage etc. they have a mini vehicle to transport u from the reception to the room. Welcome drink was given to us. The taste was fantastic. When we reach the room, the same guy continue briefing us about our room, it was a very detailed briefing.Villa was very beautiful as well, it was as though we were living together with mother nature.
The same guy that brief us about the room also check with us if we need a driver, as they do provide driver service.

Room service was available 24/7. the staff was very friendly and polite as well.

Anyway on our first day. The bathtub tap was slightly faulty, it was fixed on the very same day.
slight sound was coming out of the aircon at night when we sleep. but it was acceptable.

On our last night at furuma, we checked with the staff weather the transport service would be available to us at what time, however to our surprise we were told by the night staff that no transport service would be available to us. We approach the staff, and he told us that it would only be available to us at 300k rupiah for the transfer despite our document reflecting that is a 2W transfer. My girlfriend and I was dissapointed and we went to call our own private driver instead.

Overall a great villa, the staff should check their document before telling us that transport service was available to us at an additional charges.
Throughout the whole stay, they ask us the same question everyday, weather we need a driver a not, even though it was helpful, but we felt that they were motivated by the "commission" instead.

Location: located inside a village, 30min drive to reach Ubud central.

Dear Sir or Madam

Warm greeting from the entire team of Furama Villas and SPA resort

First of all we really appreciated very much regard to the important and valued comment and feed back toward to our staff service and hotel facilities.

Please kindly accept our sincere apology referring to the attitude of the driver who had been convinced and pushed to buy some of Silver jewellery. This should not be happened due to the professionalism politeness, and responsiveness are the most important and to be on top prioritize and honored to the guest as they deserved to be offered. Having realized that this is not a positive intact which had been acted by the driver , then we had come to our decision to consoled and warned him by serious disciplinary sentence based on hotel policy and procedure.

Following through to the miss information regard to the free transfer service to the Airport by our FO staff, also had been deeply warned by serious disciplinary sentence since he was not aware and back up the data by collecting the correspondence before informing the valued guest.

Through to this opportunity I would like personally to be part of your assistance and look after your reservation should there be any chance to be repeating to accommodate in this property by offering free upgrade to the higher room category and two ways free transfers.

Once again thank you very much for your valued feed back in order to improve our facilities , service and attitude.

We stayed on Bali for 3 weeks, at first in Kuta, then in Ubud.
We loved our stay @Furama.
Very romantic big villa bith big amazing garden, nice own swimming pool and all totally privilege, between high walls.
Garden was so nice with extra rest area "cottage" and sun beds...
it was perfect time. Even there was a bit driving distance to Ubud, there was great connection arranged by the hotel, free shuttle bus and the road to Ubud was so beautiful...
We ordered barbecue night from the hotel and it was very well organized, we enjoyed it a lot.
Management proposed us the possibility to plant "our own tree" to hotel`s area and it was really something to remember, everybody was so helpful and made us so happy.
I tried local yoga lessons and I loved it, especially with a girl who was working in spa, she was so nice and yoga was amazing... many thanks to her...
We really want to send our regards and Thank You to Furama team, you made our holidays unforgettable... Wishing you success there!! Katrin and Jorma from Estonia

Our stay at Furama Villas and Spa started with a complimentary welcome drink and stayed on a superior level from there. The staff was helpful and kind at all times and tried to accomodate us at every turn. We were in a superior room with a private shady pool and a private patio. The bed was huge and comfortable and the shower and bathroom was equipped with every amenity.

The TV had a dirth of stations, but I hardly came to Bali to watch television so I didn't really care. Wifi was good both in the room and in the common areas. Breakfasts were good. Dinners were OK.

Shuttle service into Ubud (20 minute ride) was frequent enough however the last run was a bit early. Still, given the roads, I could understand the driver not wanting to negotiate it in the dark.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed at Furama Villas and Spa Ubud from 20/01/14-24/01/14. The room i got was the deluxe room. It was excellent!! The service was great!! I couldn't ask for more!
Cleanliness was good. They cleaned the whole villa everyday, thoroughly. I know its thorough as i'm kinda a clean freak. haha! Anyway, the part that impressed me was that every evening, they would turn down the curtains and my blanket leaving a hibiscus on a leaf with the words "Good Night" on it. They did this everyday.
Next was the staff. The staff were great! Especially for someone like me as i went for the vacation with my family consisting of myself, my wife, my 2 yr old kid and my 5 month old kid.
So every morning, the restaurant manager and his staff would help me take care of my youngest kid while we have our breakfast. They are really friendly and they love kids!
For those with young kids, the pool in the villa is perfect. They do not use chlorine water as the swimming pools here. They use spring water, its really clean and refreshing. Good for baby's skin :)

The 1 and only downside comment about the villa that i have is about the pool deck. The wood on the deck was clean, just that the algae which grows are kind of 'ingrained' in the wood deck. So, i just avoid stepping on the deck. But the deck is not in the way so not too bad.

They do provide shuttle service out to the nearest Ubud town and its really useful. It's free!! But i normally give them some tips as a form of compliment of their service. You can also try talking to them to send you to a nearby place. The wouldn't really mind :)

So yep, that sums up the Furama experience in had!

Have fun in Bali!!
