“Great service and location”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

The first thing that strikes you is the great smiles and friendly staff, starting from the driver who picked us up and maintained throughout our stay. Every single request and question were attended to, and they were always happy to drop us off at various locations nearby.

The one bedroom villa we stayed in was large, clean and comfortable. The free wifi is a great plus. The pool is a bit smaller than expected given the size of the villa, but it is likely to be used for dipping and relaxing rather than proper swimming. In any case, I was still able to do a few laps in the mornings.

The only small issue we had with the villa was that there were quite some bugs wondering around, which eventually ended up in the kitchen, e.g. lizards, spiders and bugs of various kinds. This is in a way expected as half of the villa is outdoors but just a warning to those squeamish about bugs.

The location is unbeatable. Nearby to restaurants, potato head beach club, spas and shops. We would definitely come back again in the future.

Room Tip: Request to have a villa towards the back as it is further away from the main road and the noise

We stayed at the one bedroom villa for four nights in late October. After all the raving reviews I was rather disappointed upon arriving. After two years the place is looking worn. Way too worn for a luxury villa, as they call - or at least price - themselves. You could easily see that our Villa must have been attractive in the beginning and it's still spacious with nice floors and certainly very clean. But I had the nasty feeling that the good reviews had made the owners a bit too relaxed. Even the towels are worn and no longer white but rather greyish and my pool towel had a hole in it. A light was broken when we arrived and a dead orchid stood in the living room. It was replaced by a fresh one couple of days later. The light was also fixed and pool towel replace promptly upon my complaint.

We stayed awake almost the whole of the first night because of a party at the discotheque next door, which is completely unacceptable. A rather unpleasant experience. We should have been warned and given a discount due to that.

The service was nice and friendly and the staff very helpful. You had the feeling they really wanted to do well. But they are clearly not the owners and have limited powers and resources.

Breakfast was of poor quality in general, even the fruit in the fruit salad was neither ripe nor tasty. You wouldn't expect that in Bali. The Indonesian breakfast was the best - not bad really.

The location is in many ways good with nice restaurants and bars in the vicinity. And the hotel has a shuttle service, which is very convenient. However, if you are staying in Seminyak, stay close to the beach. It is not as hot due to the constantly blowing wind and the view is beautiful.

We considered finding another hotel but as we were staying only four nights we didn't find it worthwhile. In the end the stay was o.k. but I cannot recommend the hotel and I would never stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure you are not close to the discotheque next door.

I stayed at the one bedroom villa for two nights. From 22-24 October, 2013. It was a pleasant stay. The staff was very helpful. They were very personal in helping us. They would keep asking us if everything is good. They also would give us a ride to anywhere in Kuta and Seminyak area in their Shuttle. They also gave us a ride to the aiport. All free of charge ofcourse. As they provide a free dropoff only, but they do not return you. They were extremely polite and amazing in their service. The only thing i would have to say, if i had anything bad to say, was that the rooms were not sooo clean to 5 stars standards. But i thought they were good enough, and especially for the rate we got. There is a nice bakery close by also, and many other restaurants. I would stay again if i was looking for a private stay with detailed and personal service in Bali.

Stayed here in October and would highly recommend it.. Great private villas with their own pool and very secluded.. Also very quiet, only heard music one occasion.
Staff were very friendly and very attentive..
Location is also really good, in the nice part of Seminyak with some great bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk.
Would recommend Potato Head, woobar at the W hotel and Sarong for dinner.

Can only say good things about these villas. The Villa was awesome, cleaned daily by a friendly team of staff. Reception staff were excellent, they couldn't do enough to help. They organised vehicles when ever we wanted to go out. Nothing was a bother to anyone, I highly recommend this property for a great relaxing break.

Room Tip: We had villa 7 which was very quite.

We had our second stay at Yubi villas in October 2013, for 13 nights. We were picked up again from the airport with the complimentary cold water and towels. We had to wait a little while for check in as check in time is 2.00pm and we had arrivied prior to that. It can be difficult for the flights that arrive early morning from Perth, if you want to secure a check in immediately you have to book for the previous day as well but that seems to be the norm everywhere, if you are lucky and someone has checked out early as well, then there is normally not a problem with checking in early. We were welcomed again and it was nice to see some of our suggestions from our previous stay had been acted upon. One of those was to raise the sunchairs off the grass, as it just turned into a mud pit and this was done, also a outdoor shower had been installed. The single mattresses that were joined together previously have now been replaced as one mattress, not as comfy I dont think but anyway they tried to fix the previous problem. As things go in bali these villas are probably coming up to or just over two years old, and maintenance issues start to occur. The toilet blocked but was attended to straight away, the hot/cold drinking supply - the hot didnt work. Little things in the bathroom the shower was starting to look dirty and very poor water pressure. The breakfast menu has been extended with additional options which was another improvement. Staff are always helpful and friendly we cannot fault that. We had a motorbike also waiting on arrival as requested and this was always ready when we wanted to use it. The villas were full when we stayed ,but again it was very quiet in the villa we stayed in towards the back of the property. We would like to stay again but unfortunately quotes we have received are above our last two visits so popularity has increased the price which was disappointing. There was one odd thing the staff advised us when they were spraying for mosquitos which was fine, but the villas next door spray every two days and dont tell anyone so if you are outside you will make a quck exit back in because it all blows over to Yubi.

Room Tip: Request a villa towards the back half if you dont want to hear the noise from the club next door.

We had a wonderful stay at Yubi Villas for our honeymoon. The Villa was very clean and the staff provided the most friendly services. Very nice pool and spa massage. Location was great, only 10 minute walk to the restaurants and if you want to go a bit further, the driver will drop you off to central Seminyak. We were also given a honeymoon gift- a framed photo of us in the villa. Highly recommended!!!:)
