“Absolutely Spectacular”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

The location, the rooms, but most of all the hospitality of Mariah and Bob were what made this leg of my Bali trip the best part of the trip. Mariah and Bob were so welcoming and warm, that I felt like I was visiting family.

The food is absolutely delicious, home-cooked, Indonesian deliciousness. The location was amazing - we found the areas we stayed in prior to be super touristy, and Villa Wastra was incredibly serene and local. There's the best view of the stars from here.

I really can't emphasize enough how beautiful it was - the rooms were so gorgeous, the grounds beautiful, the location spectacular (a great stopover to get to Kintamani and visit the surrounding artistry villages!), but most of all -- the hospitality of Mariah and Bob will make you want to come back again.

I have been there twice, in 2011 and 2012.

There is only one word to describe the experience: FANTASTIC!

Villa Wastra is perched on the edge of a steep cliff, with breathtaking views.

Bob and Mariah and the best hosts you will every meet. Don't even consider dining out. Mariah's dinner are a treat you will never forget.


Villa Wastra does not feel like a hotel. It feels like family.

Don't even doubt it. Book now.

This luxurious and beautiful location will allow you to physically and mentally detach yourself from the world. The food will make you forget home cooking and above all, the company of the host/hostess that you will get here is above all and nothing less than a family environment to make you feel completely comfortable.

We were greeted by Mariah and shortly after, met Bob who were truly the most wonderful hosts that made us feel like family from beginning to end. They introduced us to their friends and they invited us to their dinner table the first evening. We were told to enjoy all their amenities of which there was no shortfall of. From the wonderful swimming pool to the breathtaking view over the mountains, everything was perfect. They are upgrading their water system however, it was already perfect with well running hot and cold water. The beds are such a treat, the furnishings in this home are all visually and physically pleasing.

We stayed for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. I cannot wait to go back for my honeymoon someday. See you soon Mariah and Bob, I cannot thank you enough for your hospitality. I hope everyone that reads this will come to visit you at your truly wonderful home so they can also enjoy this amazing perspective of Bali.

Room Tip: We had a tour of the entire home and all the rooms are great. If you have any special requests, jus...

One thing I remember from our stay at Villa Wastra was a comment from Bob our host expressing his concern that people reading this glowing reviews might think that they had been made up. Well I can say, honestly - it is all true. The warmth and kindness extended by Mariah and Bob to their guests is not just a 5 minute welcome, but a genuine feeling you will experience repeatedly throughout your stay. Our room was spacious, and the views each morning on the balcony stunning as we sat outside with coffee. Breakfast is served upstairs and each morning you are tantalised with a wide selection of local dishes - fried banana is actually very good dish to eat at breakfast! The villa is about 40 minutes away from Ubud, a taxi costs 100,000r. We had a very good local driver and left some of his business cards with Bob. Ubud itself is a thriving little tourist town of spas and restaurants and of course clothing shops! Sang Spa offer some lovely spa treatments - they also have a website and you can book appointments online. Bob and Mariah are a wealth of information on what to do, see, places to visit. We stayed in Villa Wastra for just under a week and can say, the time flew by. We left rested and re-charged and are absolutely planning to return for a repeat experience!

Villa Wastra is the perfect place to relax away from the bustle of the southern peninsula of Bali. The villa is set back from the road looking over a steep-sided jungle valley and is very peaceful. We spent a day walking around the local villages, meeting the locals who were all very friendly and happy to see us taking an interest in their lives. Breakfasts and dinners are very good and excellent value, and the hosts Mariah and Bob make you feel very welcome. Mariah can organise a driver to take you to any of the sites you might want to see in Bali.

Room Tip: The Endek Honeymoon suite is huge with a private terrace, kitchen and living room.

We spent the first three nights of our honeymoon here knowing this was a quiet non-touristy area where we could really relax and recover from our journey! The Endek honeymoon suite was spotless, beautiful and huge, including a private terrace with stunning views of the Balinese jungle. We really enjoyed dinners with our hosts Maria and Bob (an opportunity to try really authentic Indonesian specialties). We also loved walking through the local villages on our own - the people were friendly and we felt totally safe. Highly recommended and excellent value!

Best wishes from Paul and Alex

This review is long over due.

We stayed here on our honeymoon on July 2011. Mariah and bob were excellent hosts and we enjoyed our stay at Villa Wastra. Mariah put together a fantastic dinner for us celebrate our honeymoon. The villa was lovely, the weather is perfect and the views from the rooms are breathtaking. We loved the fact that this place was away from the touristy spots in Bali. Its a little far from the airport, but the drive is totally worth it. The food was great , fresh, organic local , a true authentic Bali experience. We enjoyed the breakfast a lot.
I could go on and on about this place...

Highly recommended. Thank you Maria and Bob!!!!
