Highly recommend Made and Matahari Villas! Made made our trip very comfortable, helping us to arrange for drivers, breakfast in the morning, and massages in the villa. The villas themselves are beautiful. They are close enough to reach central Ubud on a short car ride but enough removed to provide some peace and quiet. Our villa was open air and very comfortable with the fans cooling. The rice paddies are beautiful. Would love to come back for a longer stay.
Made's villa was the perfect addition to our stay in Ubud. It was beautifully located just outside the craziness of the main part of town and perfectly picturesque. Made and his staff greeted us as we arrived and made sure all of our needs were addressed. He helped to arrange an incredible tour guide for the next day and even provided us with a local phone to contact him with any needs. I couldn't imagine a more lovely or hospitable place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.
Our host, Made, truly made spectacular an already amazing lodging experience. Everything in the listing was provided as specified. Our breakfast was delicious and Made was sure to accomodate our various departure times each morning. Every day we returned from our trips to find fresh linens and tidied living spaces. Transportation was a breeze thanks to Made's allowing us to use a loaner phone, and facilitating multiple communications with drivers and agencies. His presence was consistent and unobtrusive - perfect!
The view and grounds were enchanting. Situated on rice paddies with locals walking to/from work, roosters crowing, children flying kites - we really felt we were staying in the heart of Bali. The pool was beautiful to look at and swim in - a wonderful break from the mid-day sun and humidity. It's funny, but we even enjoyed the gecko's that stayed with us, appreciating both their antics and their function in swallowing sharp nosed pests!
Our group was four people and two bedrooms suited us well. The bathrooms are seperate but one can easily overhear the "activities" next door - fyi. There is a safe for valuables, which we found usefull.
All in all, we are looking forward to another trip to Bali (that's another story!) and Made's villa is certainly at the top of the list of places to stay near Ubud - well done my friend!!
We had a great two days unwinding at the villa overlooking the rice paddies. We particularly enjoyed opening up the folding doors to let the sun in and taking dips in the pool to cool off. Made and the team made us feel very welcome, providing a phone to call if we needed and breakfast at our leisure in the mornings. Thanks again
Amazing place. Amazing views. Peaceful. Walked in with the biggest WOW. The host and staff were adorable and very helpful (they helped sort out rides, scooters and shared tips on the local scene)
The infinity pool on the rice field was an unforgettable experience.
Thank you so much for having us.
We will be back
