Le principe de cet hôte est assez déstabilisant : ma réservation a été confirmée sur une chambre qui, à l'arrivée, en a été une autre, située dans un quartier totalement isolé et pas conforme à ce qui m'avait été confirmé par mail.
L'accueil sur place a en revanche été très agréable, la personne en charge de la villa où je résidais est un jeune homme très chouette qui a tout fait pour que je me sente bien.
Considérez seulement lorsque vous réservez cette "surprise room" que vous pouvez vous retrouver au milieu de nulle part, à des lieux de toute activité telle que restaurant ou autre échoppe. Mais la chambre était très belle.
The surprise villa was amazing!! It was just like the pictures, with the blue painting of a woman, a four poster bed with towel swans and flowers, and very very clean. We even had a partial outdoor shower, use of two pools, free breakfast, and a porch to sit at. Loved my stay there.
We communicate a lot before coming, and we always had accurate answers.
We stayed 2 days in this hotel.
The nice person at the reception explained us that we had to change room after the first night :-(
This is part of the 'surprise room' concept...
However both rooms we had were just amazing. Sophisticated decoration, great ambiance lots of water, vegetation, garden.
We appreciated the shuttle service, which is very convenient. This is mandatory because we still are 3-4 kilo-meters far from Ubud centre. We asked for a scooter and it was provided at the hotel.
The breakfast was very good, if you come at the peak time, there are not enough tables and you have to come back later.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our surprise room did not disappoint. We were very happy with Ayu's place - the room and its
surroundings are really beautiful and well kept. Its quiet, peaceful, a lot of nature around and very
We stayed on a second floor villa with floor to ceiling glass windows in the living room area - that has
clear views of palm trees and the pool. It's especially nice at night when sleeping and you can hear
crickets around, completing the nature experience.
Its just slightly off Ubud city centre (approx 10 mins drive but probably a long walk) but am glad that
there is free morning to evening shuttle service included in the room rate.
Our host, Ayu has been wonderful and responsive, even sharing details of a festival that we can see
during the week we were there. :)
My only regret is that we stayed one night. I'd definitely go back here for a longer stay. =)
I had a poor experience. I was hoping to book a location in town. The map clearly shows a location within walking distance of the main Ubud area.
However, once we arrived at the *Resort* (not villa), it was really, really far out of town. I felt tricked. This is not the vacation I'm looking for - I want action, not isolation. Some people are looking for a resort experience in the rice paddies, but I was not.
I politely spoke to the manager on duty, showed him the Airbnb map, and explained how what I received was not what I ordered and that I would like to cancel. He put me on the line with the owner of the resorts. I again politely explained how I felt, why his tactics on Airbnb were - let's say "unclear" - and that I would like to cancel and get a refund.
He would not accommodate my request and suggested I take the case up with Airbnb instead. I'm not really surprised that he wouldn't. He did, however, move us to a different one of his resorts, one that's closer to Ubud. Still a bit far out, but closer.
The experience there was better because the staff was friendly, but the room was quite odd. The shower and the bathroom and not connected and the kitchen lies between them. If you're going to shower, make sure the people at the dining table are comfortable seeing you naked. The windows wouldn't close properly so we had mosquitoes in the room, and since the mosquito net around the bed had big gaps between its sections, we got bitten up at night.
We weren't uncomfortable at the resort, but there are better options in Ubud for the same price.
Breakfast was very basic (toast, eggs, crepes), but the staff was friendly and we enjoyed interacting with them.
All in all, I'd pass on this listing for a more up-front host.
I had a awesome stay there. It is far away from the Center but it works perfect with the driver bringing you there and picking you up. The rooms are nice and I had a beautiful view. Also the breakfast was very good and the ricefields and nature in front of the house. Everyone was very friendly and helping me out.
