Interaction with Guests
I may or may not be here...but our staff will help you with whatever you need..shopping, cooking, directing you to a motorbike or car rental shop, arranging transport to and from the airport and for Bali adventure excursions. They are never intrusive, always delightful.
BEST neighborhood in UBUD...close to town and everything you need, yet quiet because it is up the steps and in the rice fields, away from the road. There are paths to walk in on the flat and a motorbike route to the top of the steps.
Easy to get a taxi at the bottom of the steps...or walk to Ubud town center in 15 minutes. 2 minute rice field walks to five restaurants, 5 minute walk to our local village or Penestanan, with restaurants and craft shops. We can arrange transport to and from the airport and you can have your bags carried to your door.
Other Things to Note
Perfect for people who appreciate something unique and beautiful and artistic..the house is artistically opulent yet relaxed..... perfect for a honey moon.
location great and staff amazing
Smoking only outside on the verandas or in the garden.
Just relax and experience what it is like to be taken care of and pampered....or if you prefer, you can be left alone, except when the house is cleaned daily...absolutely necessary in the tropics.
Villa Delicious is indeed a work of art, even more stunning than the pictures. Very charming location far away from the traffic. Loved my walk up the steps and through the winding "gangs" to return home to this magical little villa. As a single woman traveling alone , I felt very safe. The staff were so nice, I fell in love with all of them! Nyoman is a superb cook and made a gorgeous festive dinner for me and my friends.
Only thing missing to make it too perfect to leave would have been a view and a little swimming pool, though i was able to use the one next door when it was vacant, and the gorgeous garden, complete with lotus pond and beautiful statues, was a constant visual feast. I miss my cute little frogs and gekkos!
I never met Noelle, but communication was excellent and her staff could not have taken better care of me.
Thank you Jane for your kind words. It makes me very happy that you enjoyed your stay so much and that the staff were so sweet to you...We love them too.
Well yes a pool would be nice but as I already have one and this is actually my guest house it would be excessive and expensive to put in another. ...and of course a bigger view is always good.....but the rice field and Yellow flowers organic garden seen beyond the waterfall and lotus ponds...well its not too shabby!!!!! and its just the way it is....Next time stay at the big house and get the view of the 7 volcanoes!!!!...and the gorgeous pool... au revoir
The house itself is unbelievable. Its gorgeous. Especially after traveling to Mas (nearby town famous for woodcarvers), we couldn't believe all the fine detail and craftsmanship put into this house. It is open air, so be prepared that its not extremely private and bugs get into the bedroom with ease. Its not so bad, just something to be prepared for considering the price of this house. The fountains and ponds surrounding the house make the setting very calm and relaxing. We loved the location. Its close to central ubud, but not in the middle of all the chaos of the city. We rented a motorbike, which was perfect. The yellow flower cafe right down the walkway is the absolute BEST. That was one of our favorite places to eat in all of Bali. We literally ate 1-2 meals each day there.
The staff at the house was very nice. They were around in the mornings to check in on us, clean up and see if we needed anything. We arranged our motorbike through them ($5 USD/day) and our ride to the airport ($25 USD). The only aspect we weren't too fond of was the communication with Noelle prior to our arrival. We booked the house a few days before arrival and weren't given clear check in expectations and/or directions. Noelle was even a bit snippy over emails with me the day before we arrived. It all worked out just fine, but there was definitely major attitude from Noelle. Maybe she was just having a rough day, but it was not the best way to start the trip.
Noelle was a delightful host, and the staff was amazing! We enjoyed breakfast at Villa Delicious every day and sometimes other meals. They were all such a joy and the food yummy yummy! Villa Delicious was perfect for us on our honeymoon. The bed was very comfy, the bathroom very clean, the porch wonderful to sit on and look out into the rice field. Love the artistic details too! Great place to stay in Ubud! Thanks Noelle!!
