“Wonderful stay near Ubud”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

In Villa Wastra we had a lovely time.
The Songket Suite where we stayed was very spacious and stylish with a fantastic view on the mountains. The breakfast was marvelous, a combination of Indonesian and western food.
We enjoyed also the dinners, prepared by the inkeeper Mariah, which gave us the opportunity to discover several Indonesian dishes.

We appreciated also the tips that Mariah gave us to enjoy our trips in Bali.

If you would consider a quiet and luxury stay in Bali, we would certainly recommend you this Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I traveled to Bali for our honeymoon and stayed at Villa Wastra for 3 nights during our stay. I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful place i've ever been to in my life!!. As soon as I stepped foot into Villa Wastra we couldn't believe how beautiful the place was and how friendly everyone was to us. They made us feel right at home. The service was amazing, our room which was the "honeymoon suite" was breathtaking!!!. Our view from our bed was out of this world, we couldn't believe where we were everyday. The room was huge, the bed was so comfortable and everything was spotless. There was no TV in the room so all you can do is enjoy where you are and take in the view and fresh air..... you'll just love it!!
Villa Wastra is located on top of a mountain so it can get cooler at night so make sure to pack a sweater.
The best part of our stay was the FOOD!! Oh wow, we were blown away by how good everything was and how much we learned about the different foods that Indonesian and Balinese eat. Every morning we would eat breakfast with Mariah who owns Villa Wastra and she would make us such great food and teach us something new everyday. Dinner is about $10US pp and worth every penny!!.

Everyday we would drive into town which took about 40 minutes and the shopping is great. They have lots of art from local artists and beautiful silver jewelry. At Villa Wastra you can hire driver all day to take you around Ubud to see the villages, monkey forest, the volcano, and beautiful temples for about $50US per day.

I really have no other words but "please go visit!!!" This place is a dream. If you want to see the heart and soul of bali, you need to stay at Villa Wastra.

We can't wait to be back!! Thank you Mariah for your hospitality, Villa Wastra will always hold a special place in our heart.

Our family with 6 month old baby came to Bali on holiday looking to relax and found the perfect place with Villa Wastra. Nestled in the hills near Ubud at the center of the island, we met Bob and Mariah who graciously welcomed us into their beautiful home. Every last detail from picking us up at the airport, to dropping us off days later and everything in between were all taken care of as the food, the company, and the experience were outstanding. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and simply enjoy the beauty of Bali, Villa Wastra is the perfect B&B!

My wife and I had the great fortune of staying at Villa Wastra for two nights earlier this month. We had chosen Villa Wastra because it was situated slightly out of Ubud (approx. 30 minutes by car), away from the madding crowds and touts.

Villa Wastra was a very welcome break for the two of us, having spent the previous week in a standard run-of-the-mill resort in Sanur. For one, it was a very homely and intimate B&B with lots of personal touches all over. Bob and Mariah (retired professors from Jakarta) went out of their way to make us feel at home at all times. Just some examples of their warm hospitality and friendliness:

- giving us a free upgrade on the room because there was a no-show;
- personally coming to Sanur to pick us up;
- arranging for their driver to pick us up from Ubud subsequently;
- giving us a small "picnic basket" just so that we did not have to eat the expensive and unpalatable food at Kintamani;
- warning us about sharp practices used by touts and hawkers;
- always ensuring there was an abundance of food at the breakfast and dinner tables; and
- arranging for one of their employees to accompany us when we went for a hike in the surrounding hills.

If you have been to Bali, you would know that you need to keep your wits about you constantly, whether to prevent getting ripped off, or to fend off persistent touts. Villa Wastra, in comparison, was a place where we could really let our hair down and relax without a worry. Bob and Mariah ensured that we had everything that we needed during our stay. Our only regret was that we could only spend two days in their lovely company.

Admittedly, Villa Wastra is slightly out of Ubud and accessibility may be a problem. However, we had no such worries at all as transportation was always readily available. And the Villa is also a very good launching pad for seeing the sights around Central and Northern Bali too!

On the whole, we had an amazing time and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone seeking to escape the chaos of Kuta and Ubud.

My wife and I spent five wonderful nights at Villa Wastra in May, 2011. Mariah was a charming and attentive hostess. She cheerfully saw to all our needs. Mariah took care to arrange for us to be transported to the Villa on our first day, and she and her driver guided us around the island in style.
One example of the personal attention guests at Villa Wastra enjoy was on our final day at Villa Wastra and in Bali. Mariah went above and beyond the call of duty to make our departure from Bali comfortable and convenient. Our flight home from Denpasar (27 hours in the air) departed at 2 a.m. We had planned on checking out in the morning, spending a full day sightseeing, and arriving at the airport in the evening exhausted and facing several hours of waiting for our flight. Instead, Mariah generously arranged for us to return to the Villa in the evening for a marvelous dinner, shower, and comfortable ride to the airport at the time of our choosing.
The Villa itself is even more beautiful than the photos on the website would suggest. The entire facility was lovingly designed and constructed. If you are a fan of architecture and design, you are in for a real treat touring the house and hearing from Mariah the fascinating story of the Villa’s design and construction.
Mariah prefers to host one group of guests at a time, so we were the only guests at the Villa during our stay. Also, the food was great.

I strongly recommend Villa Wastra in Bali for many reasons, the main one is that Mariah does everything to make you feel at home. The house is simply wonderful, with Balinese style, the rooms are well decorated, the details are amazing, towels, linen, rooms are huge, bathroom huge as well, perfectly cleaned, etc.. The breakfast is totally special and made ​​with care always with different options. The croissant is just amazing and the coffee bread is a dream! In addition to the structure of a boutique hotel Mariah is an amazing person and helps you define the Bali tours and places to be visited. She recommended us one driver for 7 days and for sure it was the best decision that we could do. Wayan (the driver) was simply sensational and turned our trip into something much more special showing us local life, food, and extremelly punctual in the schedules. Just no words, no money to pay the experience that I had with my friends in Bali during 7 days with all support and care of Villa Wastra !!!

Villa Wastra was the most amazing experience during my trip to Asia. The place is wonderful, everything is of such great quality, the house is astonishing and the landscape breathtaking.
The hostess, Mariah, is such a special person, concerned about our well being, serving typical and delicious food, and giving great tips on tourism and shopping in Bali.
If your plan in Bali is to visit all around the island, this is the best place to stay...they will recommend a great driver that will take you everywhere...and when back to Villa you will have great sleeping nights and the most perfect breakfast in the balcony, with the best croissants ever!
