We had a wonderful stay at the Designer Hideaway Umalas. It was the perfect introduction for our first visit to Bali. The villa is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and with a lovely pool with view over a paddyfield. Ben arranged for us a pickup from the airport and a scooter, everything worked perfectly. We felt very welcome and can only recommend staying there!
Bali was wonderful ! We didn't want to leave... Our first little villa Ruku Ruka , we had a power cut on the first night so were moved to the beach house villa wich was awesome ! The cockerel in the morning needed to be silenced lol. We were then unravel to villa Suka Sita which was absolutely beautiful! We were there for the rest of our stay. Throughout our time there Ben and his staff were just fabulous . They were caring, professional , accomodating and went out of their way to make sure our exerience Was a good one! Cannot recommend Benjamin enough, he knows was great customer service is! We will book again for sure, thanks guys for all you help, service and beautiful villas! Claire Taylor and Kylie Bartlett
Villa Ruku Ruku was amazing!
Benjamin and his staff were super friendly, always on hand and always one step ahead in making our stay perfect.
The Villa itself is a cute, perfect hideaway as described with the photos on Airbnb not doing the place itself justice! A big tick from us following our 7 night stay.
Just returned from a wonderful five nights at the Umalas villa and have nothing but the highest of praise for the managers, staff and lodgings themselves.
As so many have mentioned, and we must reiterate, Wayan is an absolute gem and made our stay even more delightful with her friendly welcome, constant smiles, advice and delicious cooking. She even returned with her sister to cook us a special local feast one night!
Villa is exactly as pictured and very, very comfortable. The pool is luscious and we loved relaxing on the day bed. Perfect place for a romantic getaway, close to the action but far from the partying.
Ben responds to emails almost immediately and everything was arranged as planned- groceries waiting for us, reservations made at restaurants, drivers organised, spa service and massage in the villa. The villa phone is an excellent service and we called Ben's assistant, Dolla, several times for assistance when out and received help immediately.
Can not recommend this villa highly enough. Do yourself a huge favour and book it now- your search is over.
Benjamin 's House is just the perfect place to be in Kuta/Seminyak !
Rooms ans Bathrooms are so comfortable, design and cosy.
The living room open to the swimming poool is amazing to have diner.
I really want to thank Benjamin's team : Dola and Wayan who were still hepful and warmful.
You can rent scooters, have breakfast delivery and many advices thanks to them.
To conclude, do not hesitate to come there !
I stayed at Benjamin's Ruku Ruku villa for 6 nights. I wish I could have stayed longer!
Firstly, Benjamin was quick to reply to my request on availability. I was easily able to arrange a pickup with him/Dolla at my previous location (another villa further south in Seminyak).
The villa itself was as pictured - spacious, 2 bedroom etc etc. The pool was great - not too warm, not too cool and just nice for all day/night use. One bedroom has the tub, one bedroom has the shower. The central kitchen/living area is nicely laid out and has a couple great ceiling fans that make it entirely liveable all day. Wayan was in each day for cleaning. The pool guy was in every couple days to make sure all was right with the pool. The location itself is great for being off the main road and relatively quiet yet still convenient for everything. There is a great pizza place back and north on the main road about 500 feet away. You can walk to Degan and Metis in about 8 minutes.
I would absolutely return. I am already missing my daily massages you can order in for about 10 bucks.
We had the most amazing stay at Benjamin's Villa Ruku Ruku! The villa itself is beautiful in every way. Even though it rained two days during our stay, we lounged in the day bed, plugged in our iPhones to the speakers and listened to the music and the rain, even went swimming when it rained! The other days the weather was great and we laid out, swam, the view over the rice field is beautiful too. The bed was really comfortable and we watched a few of the movies at the villa too. Dolla and Benjamin were super helpful in arranging a massage for me at the villa and recommending a driver for a 10-hour tour of Ubud--definitely a highlight. The maid Wayan also was so sweet. She cleaned the villa each morning and made us breakfast (we paid for groceries though!). She also took our dirty clothes to get washed and brought them back for us. All in all, it was an unforgettable stay and we would definitely return back to this villa...definitely recommend it to anyone!

Honesty - Simplicity - Efficiency
