Interaction with Guests
We have an English-speaking full-time villa manager, the wonderful Ketut, available all hours. If you can provide a contact number once you reach Indonesia, Ketut can call you to arrange either transport (at own cost - see below) or directions to the villa.
Villa Mawang is sited with direct river frontage, behind a traditional Balinese village.
It's a great location: 10 minutes to the Sukawati art market, 20 minutes to the beach, close to Bali Zoo, Bali Safari and Marine Park.
The villa is a 10 minute drive into Ubud. Villa Manager Ketut can drop you off in central Ubud at your convenience and pick you up again from wherever you've explored to. There is a small additional charge per trip direct to Ketut - cheaper than a taxi.
If you would like to hire Ketut as a full-time driver for excursions outside Ubud, such as the Taro Elephant Safari park, Mount Batur volcano, Jatiluwih rice terraces:
One full day - 700,000 rp
Two full days - (phone number hidden) rp
Three full days - (phone number hidden) rp
Cheaper rates for longer periods; if going far afield please also contribute to petrol payment and $1 for Ketut's lunch.
If you have a child or infant, Ketut has an Australian-standard car seat.
Airport pickup or drop off is available for 300,000 rp (the standard rate for Ubud).
Our house is strictly non-smoking and is not suitable for pets.
Please enjoy your stay, and respect our house as you would your own.
In particular, we ask that you treat our wonderful Balinese staff with respect.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
Unique villa! Through its well thought architecture all living spaces (open kitchen, outdoor living room and three bedrooms) have a direct view on the river and its green borders. The villa is still new and very modern and tastefully fitted with locally produced furniture and accessories. Householding is in the capable hands of very kind and helpfull local staff. Ubud is not far but can only be reached by car or scooter.
The landlady has been responsive and helpfull, and the housekeeper has been wonderfull as a host, chauffeur and guide.
We absolutely loved our stay at New Ubud Villa. Rebecca was a beautiful hostess and her staff was very on task and helpful. The Villa itself was absolutely perfect. A quiet getaway for us 3 gals to relax and enjoy after a long month of working. This is the best place Ive ever stayed in Bali, and I've been here a lot!
I would love to keep coming back every time I'm in Bali!
We had nice 4-day stay at this beautiful villa. Everything was cool and exciting. Special thanks to Ketut (villa manager) and his family for comfortable stay and providing us with everything we needed. Destination is not easy to find, but you can give you mobile phone to your driver and Ketut will provide all instructions. You won't see any of your neighbors and nobody will have an opportunity to disturb you during your vacation at this villa. I definitely recommend to choose this villa if you wish comfortable, cosy and quiet close to Balinese nature. Hope to be back here in future!
Rebecca's place is stunning. Its about 10 minutes to Ubud where you can enjoy all that the town has to offer and far enough away to feel like you are in the middle of the jungle.
Ketut will be there to address even your smallest need. His smile alone with worth the stay!
Thanks both - this place comes highly recommended
The place was so peaceful and gorgeous. The view over the river and forest was beautiful. Beds comfortable for sure. It is a little out of the way but Ketut is there to assist and you can hire a car from him also. 10 min or so drive into central Ubud. Great place to chill!
The villa is amazing. As soon as you walk through the front door, you'll know you made the right choice! I recommend using Ketut (the villa manager) to collect you from your previous accommodation or from the airport as it would be difficult to find without some local knowledge.
The pool is awesome. The living area great for relaxing, talking, playing cards etc. It stays nice and cool with the overhead fans and the bedrooms have A/C and fans as well.
It's about 15min scooter ride to Ubud, which we loved as it's away from all the hustle and bustle, but easy enough to access.
Ketut and his family were simply awesome. Helped to get us cheaper prices on tours. Picked us up and dropped us off to/from all activities and was available to help and answer any questions when needed. Cynthia (Ketut's daughter in-law) prepared a lovely breakfast each morning and also cooked for us one evening after we'd had a long day and didn't want to go to Ubud for dinner.
You are in a tropical country so some bugs/lizards etc are to be expected, but nothing that was a problem. There's also chickens/roosters all around the neighborhood, but we enjoyed that and didn't find it to be a problem.
Only small issue is that it's advertised as having TV. Yes it does have a TV and DVD player - but there are no channels actually connected. Not a major issue because WiFi worked fine, but would've been nice to watch the news in the morning.
Overall I'd give the whole experience 9.5 out of 10 and I'd give Ketut a 10 out of 10!
I came to Bali with my family for 1 week and we really enjoyed our stay in this villa. The pool is lovely and warm. We saw the pool guy clean it twice.
Very private and serene location over looking a river.
Ketut is the villa manager and is genuinely one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He can answer all your questions and drive you around for a very reasonable rate. This is perfect as you do really need a car to get anywhere. Ketut also fixed any issues we had very fast.
The roosters I read about in the other reviews are alive, well, exercise their vocal cords regularly. I stopped hearing them after the first day. Did not impact us whatsoever.
A really great 3 bedroom villa that I would stay at again.
