Ubud is located 35 km northeast of Bali's International Airport. It is attractive to tourists for a variety of reasons. On a relatively small island with a horde of attractions, Ubud is centrally located, There are plenty reasons why Ubud was voted in recently as the most fascinating city of Asia by Condé Nast Traveler.
The Ubud area is around two to three hundred meters above sea level and surrounded by rice fields, which makes it noticeably cooler than other tourist destinations in Bali. Neighbouring villages are well known for unique bamboo crafts and furniture, wood and stone carving and many other crafts.
Ubud is famous for it's regularly nightly traditional dance performances, which are part of the traditional culture and are arranged for tourists on a regular schedule. Hindu-Balinese ceremonies take place on a nearly daily basis, especially in the European summer, which is the driest and coolest season here.
Ubud is popular in part today because it is the best place in Bali to break out of the tourist mode and get off the beaten path, although far from undiscovered. Hotels are plentiful; home stays and Indonesian guesthouses (losmen) are easily available to the foreign tourist. Many tourists simply base their entire stay here and travel to other destinations from Ubud.
Accommodations in Ubud are also somewhat more reasonably priced than in the beach towns of Bali. But atmosphere is perhaps the major attractions. One visitor summed it up this way: Kuta is madness, Sanur is sterile, and Nusa Dua is culturally isolated; Ubud is the place to go.
The villa is only a 20 minute walk from central Ubud or 5 minutes by car. There are lots of drivers available close to the villa.
Cars can drive right to the door.
We were picked by Steve's driver on-time, who also checked us in. The villa was just as described: great location in Penestanan neighbourhood, nearby some great coffeeshops and restaurants. The villa was clean, and the bed comfortable. Would love to stay at Villa Kembali again!
We only spent 3 nights at Villa Kembali but really enjoyed our stay. The total privacy, the pool, the facilities as cooking equipment, fresh bread + jam for breakfast, internet, etc... were really appreciable. Not to mention our room boy who were friendly, helpful but also not intrusive at all.
The villa itself is modern and beautiful.
Our 3 nights stay in villa Kembali was simply perfect!! Lovely peacefull place, very well organised, highly recommended!
