This is a really nice spot to stay for a relaxing holiday. It is close to UBud and we were able to walk to town one day but generally you need a taxi which is quite cheap to hire. The accomodation is very nice and although there are a number of units on the site it is very private because of the layout and the foliage. The description of the accomodation was accurate, the staff were friendly and helpful and overall I could not fault anything. As a bonus we had a meal on our last day prepared by the staff and it was excellent and very reasonable. Overall I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in a quiet part of of Ubud but not too far from the town itself.
Bima villa was amazing, easy walk into Ubud and the staff were all fantastic. The food at the villa is excellent and some of the best we ate during our stay.. Kadek and Komang were lovely and looked after us like we were regulars all throughout our stay. We will be back.
