This is an absolutely stunning villa, set above a jungle valley. You can hear the river running below and insects chirping in the trees. We were a group of eight friends and it was a perfect set-up, with big rooms for each couple and plenty of communal areas. The pool is particularly beautiful. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Wish we had longer to spend more time there as we didn't want to leave. The villa is about a 10-15 minute drive from town.

This villa is absolutely amazing. It is just as the oictures display. The area is quiet and peaceful. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the forest area that is overlooked by cabanas. Waking up in the morning enjoying our coffee as we watched the monkeys down below, incredible! Than there is the staff, WOW, they are truely among the best. The level and quality of service they showed my family and our guests to include the children was remarkable. From the on-site manager to the staff in training, the quality of service was far above the 5-Star expectations. We will definately return again and again. Thank you Villa Santai!

We were picked up from the airport by Wayan (who is amazing) and taken to Villa Santai in two separate groups. Half of us arrived 4 hours before the other half and this wasn't a problem at all for Wayan and the staff to pick us up and have dinner waiting for us. Villa Santai is easily the nicest place that we have ever stayed and we could not have asked for more. We continually commented to ourselves that we felt like we were being spoiled in the best way. The villa is situated right above a running river (which is really nice at night), right in the middle of the jungle. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to Ubud center, which was perfect to have some seclusion but also the proximity to the town. The staff were amazing and helped us out with any request we had, including completely handling the booking of a ferry to Gili T for us. We could not have asked for a better experience and we will for sure be back at Villa Santai.

If you want to see a little bit of heaven then this is the destination. If you are seeking perfection then this where you must go. We stayed for 3 nights. This place is beyond imagination. Though the photos looks amazing the villa is more beautiful than the photos. The bedrooms, the bathrooms, the view, the pool , the view , the staff , the service is just perfect. If you go to Ubud , you must stay there at least for 2 or 3 nights. Do not plan to go any sightseeing in this days. We simple did not leave the villa in the 3 days. For food we ordered dinner in house or ordered pizza and tha staff arranged its pick up. Everyday we enjoyed a breakfast with a view. The room decoration and the contrast between the dark wooden floor and the white sheets, curtains is simply beautiful, classic with a style. The bathrooms has amazing views over the forest. All 4 bathrooms are very big with nice view. The upper level has so many places to sit and enjoy the view, TV or playing with chess. I used to read in a beautiful corner every day. The place is so big that the 10 of us could do different activities and enjoy privacy at the same time. Wayan, made and the 2 ladies managers in the house are friendly and professional. I highly recommend this place .. It is a little bit of heaven ❤️

Booked a 3 night stay here for my honeymoon. Pros: - Amazing view. It was insane waking up to a view of a vast jungle each morning and take a dip in the infinity pool. - Very friendly and helpful staff. They did their best to help us with planning our day, even though they didn't know where to buy a few hard to locate items we wanted Cons: - Sheets were dirty. We asked the staff to replace, and they did, but the replacements were dirty as well. I then asked staff to purchase new sheets, and they did go to the market and provide us with clean sheets. Keep in mind we were only using 1 of the 4 rooms at the villa, so I can't comment how clean or dirty the other rooms were. Towels were similarly dirty, and were similarly replaced. Many of the seat cushions were also dirty, and the bathroom wasn't spotless either. Definitely not as clean as a 5 star hotel. Overall, would not stay again unless London improved quality of amenities.
