Vi har haft en særdeles positiv oplevelse af vores ophold i Art Villa. Værten, Bruce, var selv til stede i forbindelse med vores ankomst og også i løbet af opholdet. Han er utrolig imødekommende, hjælpsom og interessant at tale med. Han deler gerne ud af sin viden om lokalområdet og om forhold vedr. Bali. Personalet i villaen er alle søde og oprigtigt imødekommende. Det er op til én selv, hvor meget man vil snakke og lære dem nærmere at kende.
Selve villaen er en rekreativ oase, der åbner sig når man træder indenfor. Indretningen er smagfuld og med kunst som er produceret af værten selv. Morgenmaden er lækker og kan varieres efter eget ønske.
Villaen ligger i et roligt og hyggeligt område, med rismarker i baghaven, små cafeer og warungs tæt på, og ikke længere væk fra Ubud centrum end man kan gå på 15 min. Der er en fantastisk udsigt fra villaen, ud over rismarker og med en vulkan i baggrunden.
Der er tænkt på detaljerne og man kan kun føle sig godt tilpas.
Wir, 2 Paare plus 2 erwachsene Kinder haben unseren Aufenthalt von der Ankunft bis zur Abreise in vollen Zügen genießen können. Alle 4 Zimmer mit eigenem Badezimmer, der Aufenthaltsbereich und der grandiose Pool haben unsere Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt. Das Hauspersonal um Wayan herum lässt keine Wünsche offen. Von Frühstück bis Abendessen wurde individuell auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen. Selbst Parmesanschnitzel waren nach einmaliger Einweisung hervorragend. Die Ausflüge mit John, als kundigem Guide, waren lustige und informative Erlebnisse. Das gesamte Personal war äußerst zurückhaltend und hilfsbereit. Die Umgebung der Villa lädt zu beschaulichen Rundgängen ein. Die von Wayan organisierten Massagen in der Villa waren ein Genuss. Die morgendlichen Zeremonien von Kedat brachten unseren Tag ins Gleichgewicht. Es war ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt. Nach 7 Tagen fiel uns allen der Abschied sehr schwer.
Wij hebben een erg leuke tijd gehad. De eigenaar en staff zijn zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Het huis was ruim met mooie kamers en badkamer in de open lucht. Erg schoon en iedere dag nieuwe handdoeken etc. De villa ligt goed centraal in Ubud. Het ontbijt en diner zijn prima verzorgd tegen een goede prijs. De manager regelt indien nodig alles goed en snel.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Ubud ArtVilla. We booked 3 rooms (there were 7 of us), it felt like we had the entire villa to ourselves. Bruce and his team made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, and encouraged us to make ourselves at home - which we did!
The rooms are very well appointed and extremely comfortable. We spent a lot of time swimming & relaxing, as well as taking in the local sites and attractions. It was very easy to arrange transportation and tours with Bruce and his team; they are so accommodating and nothing we asked was ever an imposition.
Breakfast was included in the rate, and was cooked to order each morning - wonderful! We had 2 young children with us too, so we opted to eat at the villa each of the 3 nights - and we chose local dishes which were delicious and fresh.
Bruce and his team blend into the routine of their guests, and they love to interact as do the children of the wonderful folks who work there. They are so generous with their time for anything you need, whether it's information about things to go or cultural questions - or just a general chit-chat about life. It is apparent they love to get to know their guests, but it's so natural how the interaction just happens.
To sum up, we hope to return one day. It's unusual to feel so connected to your hosts, but you leave Ubud ArtVilla feeling just that. A truly memorable stay, and we cannot thank Bruce and the team enough for welcoming us into their villa and hearts.
The perfect vacation at Art Villa Ubud!
Our stay was fantastic starting with the beauty of the house filled with beautiful energy, the private party organized for bruce's birthday, the cleanness of every corner of the house, the staff (like never seen before), the pool with a view a dream to Wayan's extraordinary help in showing us every aspect of the traditional Balinese lifestyle ad organizing little trips away from the touristic traffic but still showing us the things you have to see when you visit Bali and especially Ubud.
We were a group of 7 friends and occupied 3 rooms of the house we never needed anything that was not there and one thing we said over and over again : if any of us come back to Bali we will be stayong at the artvill again !

About the Host, Bruce
I am an artist, teacher and cultural travel organiser. My interest in the arts takes me regularly to Asia and many locations. Bali has become more than a travel destination and my connections with the Balinese people have enriched my life. i hope to share some of this with you if you stay at my Boutique Hotel Villa in Ubud.
Of course my life revolves around art, music and culture and these things inform the philosophy of the Villa. But I also love nature, the outdoors, adventure and cultural discovery. If you stay with us we will share all this with you.
