Bruce (an Australian professor of art) and his local partner Wayan (a charming Balinese visitor specialist) have cooperated to provide an amazing home for visitors, that was a highlight of our little group's visit to Bali. We actually rushed home from the day's activities each day we were in Ubud to swim in the infinity pool, with its views of the rice fields nearby and Mt. Agung in the distance, and surrounded by a fern-covered lava rock wall with cascading water, plumeria trees, and lemon grass. Both Bruce (the host) and Wayan (his operations manager) are delightful: knowledgeable, personable, and helpful, and the rest of the staff do their best to make your stay memorable. We hope to return to Bali one day, and if we do, will definitely try to stay here again!
A word of warning for visitors to anywhere in Bali: do take precautions against mosquitoes, especially if you (like I) are usually the first to be bitten in a crowd!
Me, my fiancé, best friend and her boyfriend stayed in art villa hotel, and it came as a huge surprise! We took 2 rooms and ours was facing the pool. The view of the lush nature was magnificent! The manager of the hotel, Wayan, personally attended to us, ensured all our needs were given and has gone beyond what was expected. The manager went extra mile to ensure we had a comfortable stay in the hotel. Such a friendly, warm and helpful man. The rest of the staffs were amazing, too! The bed was huge and comfortable, toilet was such a work of art! I love the shower and the tub! Beautiful! When I book for any hotel, the one thing I'm always very particular about is the bathroom, and I must say, I did love their unique and clean bathroom!The location of Art Villa was just perfect for us, too! Me and my best friend are Flight Attendants, and desperately needed a relaxing vacation, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place was not totally deserted or deprived of city luxuries, it was just a good 5 minute drive from the monkey forest street where heaps of amazing restaurants can be found, coffee shops and bars. Art Villa also provided free breakfast, it did take quite a while for them to prepare the food, but hey! It was another surprise! We were so impressed by how they prepared the food! Proper plating and presentation. It was like dining in a 5 star paradise. All in all, I'd give it a 5! We fell in love with Art Villa and we look forward to a longer stay again someday!
