This place is set in a stunning location, in the middle of the rice fields in a very quaint village called Petulu, only ten minutes away by motorbike from Ubud. The pool area, outside living room and kitchen are lovely and the views are amazing! The value for money was very good (we paid about 53 euros per night).
However, the owner needs to spruce up the place - the more guests you have, the more money you make, the more you need to maintain the place. The kitchen area in particular needs some TLC.
Cleanliness was not good. We had dirty sheets and mouldy pillows upon arrival (yes, it's in the middle of the rice fields but that is a reason to keep an eye on these things more than you might usually have to and there is NO excuse for mouldy pillows!). A dehumidifer in the bedroom might help. The kitchen cupboards need fixing and cleaning inside and some extra equipment (like teaspoons) would be nice.
Communication with the host was not great. We were told that she was out of the country when we arrived so we had to communicate with different members of staff depending on the issue, thus not having a single reference point during our stay. On one particular occasion, after a day and a half without wifi and various attempts with different persons at getting it sorted, I emailed the owner to make sure she was aware of the situation. I was told to be patient because the place is in the middle of the rice fields :) The issue was sorted soon after.
We had a great stay at this villa and in Petulu, in general. The above suggestions and criticism should help to make future stays close to perfect!
Absolutely fantastic place. Beautiful pool and views and all round helpful staff and owners. It is a little out of Ubud but we liked the drive as we were experienced scooter riders and it was only 10-15 mins into town. so worth it for this peaceful villa (plus all the places in town deliver
Food and beer!)Chloe and Mykah, Kadek and Chino made our stay pleasant and memorable.....we hope to return one day! Thanks so much! X
We were met at the airport and we found the house clean and waiting.
We enjoyed the pool and sitting on the nice porch and we admired the garden and the beautiful rice field that surrounded the house.
Cleaning lady Kadek was very friendly and so was Gusti the driver who showed us around and Madek who took care of the garden and pool.
Only dissonant was a failing pump so we were without water when this happened,but swift and prompt action was taken to repair this.
We enjoyed biking in and out of Ubud and we were pleasantly surprised how easy it was to order dinner in.
For this purpose we received a phone with credit so we could make a few calls.
To make up for the water we were offered free drinks from the fridge that also served as a minibar.
We were very happy to stay here and very delighted with the quiet charm of the place,
And Ubud close by for nice restaurants.
Kismet was a nice place,Bali Buda, Kafe and Casa Luna served wonderful food as well.
Top place this lovely house, we already miss it!
My husband and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the villa. It is a nice relaxing place with great scenery and we enjoyed walking through Patulu to get to Ubud.
Our one week at Villa Uma D'Tulu was one of the highlights of our entire trip. Perfectly situated amidst the rice fields of Petulu Village, the villa had everything we needed for an extremely pleasant stay- including WiFi and our very own tiny plunge pool. Chloe and Mykah were wonderful hosts and gave us great advice on what to do and see in Ubud. The small thoughtful touches such as the stack of great dvds in the room and the local phone provided to us, added to the great experience. Minou, the cat who lives in the villa is the cutest, most patient kitty in the world and we miss him already. Highly recommend the place to anyone visiting Ubud. Hope we can make it back there soon :)
