“A GREAT VILLA TO HAVE LEISURE AND JOY”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This Villa is best for those who want to spend their relaxing time by eating good food and splashing in the pools

We are 5 friends and wanted to have a great time in Bali. We had booked Umalas Retreat through Tripdvisor.com and initially, we were very apprehensive about staying in a Villa. Our fears were proven wrong as soon as we met Mr.Putu- the villa manager- who was at the airport to receive us.

We were welcomed in the Villa by Mrs. Juwini- the chef - with refreshing welcome drinks. The Villa looked more beautiful than in the photographs, so excellent, that when we entered inside for the first time, we were stunned. Some of us were gaping at the Balinese art in the walls. We felt as though we were in a paradise. The Villa was brand new. The swimming pool was very clean. The beds were neatly decorated. We wish that Mrs.Kay.S- the Villa Owner- must upload some more good photographs of the swimming pool, because the real pool looked so beautiful in night, that it took most of our time in the Villa. The Villa is completely enclosed with reliable security. The bed rooms were gorgeous- ideal for honeymoon couple and families with children. Two of the three bedrooms were overlooking the pools and the third one was facing the dining hall. The bedrooms had nice screens and can completely shut down natural light, if required. Every room had a locker, a great shower, free toiletries and towels. Everything- the air-conditioners, fans, lockers, TVs, Wi-Fis, water heaters, etc. - worked perfectly. There was not even a single hiccup and minor issues were attended immediately

The Villa is a bit away from Seminyak. That is a great choice, really. Umalas is full of Villas, but has got fewer vehicles in streets. The location of the Villa will make you feel safe and at the same time, families will enjoy good silence and peace, broken only by the splashing of water by guests at the swimming pool.

We discovered that Mr.Putu had fantastic experience in the hospitality field. Our main objective in Bali was to have adventure. We did white water rafting, diving, cycling, ocean sports and many other adventures. We were very apprehensive about falling into traps and getting misled by touts. But Mr.Putu and other staff made sure that we chose the right agents for adventure. He guided us to the safest money exchangers and he took us by car wherever we wanted to go. He had excellent knowledge of the restaurants and temples of Bali.

Mrs. Juwini is a good chef. Some of us were vegetarians and we relished the dishes prepared by her. You need not worry about the ingredients. She will purchase it for you and make you feel safe like at home. Kay was very responsive. We paid the rent though tripadvisor.com and that's it – there were no hidden costs. No other villa owner will offer so much of extras at such a low price. Most of us believe that Kay loves Bali and makes great efforts, so her guests would love the place too. We were sad when it was time for us to leave the Villa and its staff and take the flight back to Singapore. Some of us regretted that we had spent too much of a time on adventure sport in Bali that we didn't spend much time on the pool, the Villa, the books it offered and the idyllic beds it provided.

Thank you Mr.Putu and Mrs. Juwini for taking good care of the five noisy guys.

Away from the hustle and bustle, Umalas Retreat is a great place to relax and unwind. Nothing has been overlooked. Everything you could possibly want is there. It made our first trip to Bali a stress free and relaxing holiday. The beds are so comfy and the villa is well set out to accommodate 2 or 3 couples to enjoy time together or allow your own personal space. The compendium has been well put together and has lots of useful tips. All the staff are awesome, nothing is too much trouble. Juwini is the best cook. Her green pancakes are heavenly. Thanks again Putu, Juwini, Morris and Adi for the friendly service and always being there to help make our holiday one to remember. Well done Umalas Retreat. We have no hesitation in recommending it as the place to stay in Bali.
