Like many other tropical places, Mosquitoes are common in Bali, especially at nigth times. To prevent them from coming in to the villa and bedrooms, guests are requested to close all doors when going out at night times.
Stayed in this villa for 2nites. Kids had a great time playing in the pool and love the cosy corner for card games.
This spacious villa is great for family gathering. Upon arrival at the villa, we were received by Ms Kadir and her team of service staff. They were warm and helpful. Made us felt welcome immediately.
There are several eateries within walking distance towards the beach. Specially like the Grocer & Grind cafe, which we had 2 great meals.
Our pre-holiday planning was made easy by host Ms Pratiwi's quick response. She was very accommodative with our early check-in and late check-out requests, without additional charges.
Wifi connection was gd the first day, but was down the next day after a heavy downpour.
Everything is according to the pictures shown in villa profile but not as new. Be prepared for wear and tear here and there.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay and i would recommend this villa to people looking for a quiet retreat.
We spent an entire week at Pratiwi's villa and had a lovely stay. The villa is conveniently situated 10 minutes walking from ECHO beach. There are restaurants and small shops at walking distance as well.
The villa is spacious, well maintained, Pratiwi's staff are extremely friendly, helpful and discret. They even offer to ride us on their motorcycles, to the places we wanted to go around Canggu. They can call cabs if you want to go further.
I would highly recommend this villa to anybody who wants to spend some time with friends and family (we fit up to 8 people) in a laid back environment, slightly away from busy Seminyak.
Thanks again for everything to Pratiwi and her staff!
Second time guests to Kubu Pratiwi villa, and once again totally happy with everything. From the pre stay contact with Pratiwi herself, through to the wonderfully attentive, happy, helpful staff and the awesome value for money villa, everything was fantastic. Totally recommend this villa to anyone whether a large family group or a bunch of friends. 500 mtrs to Echo Beach and cafes. 20 mins or so via taxi to Kuta. Will definitely be back again.
Our family stayed at the villa on 10 & 11 Feb '13. We like the design, layout and spacious interior, and the pool. However, the villa is quite run-down, not as new as the photos you see in the website. In my room, the air-con could not be adjusted and bed-side lamp was not working, this was fixed the next day as we checked in late on the 1st day. If properly maintained, it is a great place to stay.
Kubu Pratiwi is in a good location near Echo beach away from the din of Kuta & Seminyak in Bali. We rented motorbikes and you can get to the beach in 3 mins. The villa has four full bedrooms with attached baths, a nice swimming pool and several couches/Japanese day beds around. It is spacious and inviting with lots of natural sunlight and perfect for a large family or groups of friends. There is wireless connectivity and it worked quite well on the first day but wasnt all that great the next day.
We also added 2 guests at very short notice - 1 of them the day before we flew into bali and Pratiwi, the owner graciously and swiftly handled both of these last minute additions.
The service staff are polite and very helpful. The villa could be a little cleaner although this is just a mild annoyance, there are no major issues. I am sure with more supervision of the service staff this can be done.
We overall had a great time in Bali, the place was convenient and a lot of fun. The biggest reason I would choose this place is because the owner Pratiwi is responsive and looking to improve (have given her a lot of the same feedback already) and she has promised to look into them (like the wireless connectivity & cleanliness). If you want to stay in Canggu /Echo beach area then this is a good choice.
