I stayed with 4 girlfriends for one of their 50th birthday celebration for 7 nights June/July 2013. Staff picked us up from Ubud and we were met by staff Wyan, Ono and Karak. They were very welcoming and friendly and gave us a comprehensive run down on the Villa and surrounding area. The Villa is very well appointed spacious and equipped with everything that we required over our stay. The pics on Trip advisor really dont do it justice. As wonderful as the physical environment was, it was really the staff that left me with the lasting impression. I can’t comment on the Kitchen Facilities as Ono and Karak (they were with us from 7am to 3pm) cooked us wonderful breakfasts, cleaned up after us so we really did not lift a finger. The amazing Ono and Karak also cleaned the villa within an inch of its life daily and we did not even really know that they were there; they just went about their business. If we had any questions they would answer them to their best ability if they didn’t have the answer they would call Wyan for further assistance. They would take your laundry; posts mail anything....totally amazing. Katut, our security guy worked from 3pm until 7am and was just as wonderful and helpful getting us reliable taxi's and greeting us up the alleyway late at night.
Bedding was fantastic and comfy, bathrooms spacious and always well cleaned, bottled cold water on tap, there was always fruit left on the bench and fridge, there is a small shop right outside that was really well equipped and they also did laundry.
Location was good tucked away from the main streets, not too far from airport, Kuta and the beaches of Seminyak.
The only improvement i would suggest is to have a package of written information such as a map of the local area, restaurants, massage places, cooking courses things to do in the area etc that you can look through at your own pace. Wyan did give a run down upon arrival but with being tried and amazed that the villa it did need to be reinforced with written info.
I would happily recommend this Villa to anyone wanting a hassel free stay in Bali.
Thank you for such a detailed review.
We know how wonderful Villa Bu is for all groups but it is always a pleasure to ready a past guest go into detail.
Thanks again we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
