Feels like home the minute you arrive. Everything you need has been thought of and provided for you. Rosita is such a treasure, we took advantage of her great cooking and hardly left the villa. This is a great place that you can felt secure in. With security guards right outside 24 hours a day. The two large bedrooms with beautiful big bathrooms interconnect. but are nicely seperated by two dressing rooms, one for each bedroom. The door between can be locked if you like. This was ideal for us traveling with a teenager. I met Kay whom was lovely and very helpful. A great place to stay is where the host is available if you need them. Kay organized to put two pool loungers in for us, which was exactly what we needed as our daughter claimed the relaxing hammock. I will stay again and highly recommend it. We have stayed in alot of villas in bali over the last 2 years and this is my favourite p.s. local large suprmarket only 100 metes up the road with everything you eed supply wise. Very easy walk.
Really enjoyed staying there. Baby's friendly. Rosita's (housekeeper) really really help us. Shes very kind and good at cooking. Recommend and would like staying in umalas retreat next visit to Bali
We stayed here for the final few days of our honeymoon and it couldn’t have been better. We’d done a bit of travelling around Bali already so we were pretty tired and just wanted to chill out before our flight back. Rosita made all that really easy and made us some delicious meals – she really is an amazing cook! The villa itself is really quiet and peaceful but we also made a couple of trips to the main beach which is only about 15 mins in a cab. The pool was great too, we’d definitely recommend and return in future.
We have stayed in Umalas Retreat in April 2017. Everything was a breeze from the airport transfer to the check-in. Our driver, Mr Putu was very polite and have many years of experience! As we had wanted a rest and relax holiday, we did not engage M Putu for his service. Our housekeeper, Mr Nyoman is the best! Upon our arrival, he proceeded to prepare our breakfast and served us within minutes. What a good way to start our day :)
We had mostly stayed in the villa and Mr Nyoman prepared all of our meals at our request. He will buy the ingredients based on our selection and prepare them in our kitchen. Talking about this make us missing his garlic butter shrimps now :p
We also gotten Mr Nyoman to help us buy some pastries from Monsieur Spoon. Too delicious that we bought the pastries two days consecutively. :p
I would definitely recommend Umalas Retreat to everyone who is looking for a nice place to unwind and relax. Hope to be back some day!
Villa 3, an amazing relaxing place to spend a week. Our 'smiley' happy chef was very competent, meals were delicious and provided us with some new experiences in food. Our fantastic, informative day trip,with the Umalas driver, took us out and about including coffee plantation with tasting, Monkey Forest, rice terraces and temple visit.
The pool was always there to cool us Kiwis off any hour of the day. Thank you Kay and Anthony, Rosita and Putu.
We stayed at the gorgeous Umalas Retreat (Villa 3) with friends for a week in March and loved our stay. The villa is beautifully decorated with everything you could need. Having the gorgeous Rosita preparing a delicious brekkie everyday and being available to cook extra meals was awesome as some days you just don't want to leave the villa.
The pool and living areas are stunning and so relaxing to just hang out, swim read and enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. The bedrooms were stunning and the beds were super comfy with spotless white linen and super cold air conditioning. The owners and staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, including Manager Putu who we used for a couple of days out and about. I loved being that little bit out of Seminyak without all the background noise, it's so peaceful .
There are many fantastic warungs and restaurants just a few minutes away in a taxi and great coffee at Monsieur Spoon only 10 minutes walk. Our friends visited the spa just down the road called The Antique Spa and they absolutely raved about it saying they had the best massages EVER at great prices.
We also had a sneak peek into the newly decorated villas which look amazing and I'm planning to come back and stay in one of them next visit. Thanks Kaye and everyone at Umalas for a fantastic stay. Highly recommended.
What a great place to stay. All you need and more in one villa. The location is great within short walking distance to good groceries. The staff is amazing.....but watch out because you get spoiled. I'm still craving the avocado smash breakfast and the nightly dip in the pool !!!! We will be back for sure!!!!
