I would have to say the the host, Made, was definitely the main attraction here at Tanah at Ulu's. He was very dedicated when hosting our group and went out of his way to met our needs. The Villa is very attractive and kept clean and location is only 10 minute walk to beach with eateries right out your front door. There is no wifi at the villa and although the Gong Surfshop and Cafe offered wifi, I found this to be very inconvenient. Not only did they change their login and password throughout the day, but we felt as if we had to purchase something overtime we needed to connect and it also meant you could only connect during their hours of operation. It would have been nice for the villa to provide their own wifi, for it is very import to have for communication to look up activities and for booking events and arranging rides and for checking on important things such as emails. There was a beautiful pool at this villa, however, there was a need for some repair for some of the tiles were loose, not there or even coming off while being used. There also needs to be better lighting at night in and around pool and especially (It is not nearly as well lighted as the picture looks on AirBnB) at entry door into the villa, for there is a steep tile stairway that one could easily trip over and get seriously hurt. The interior of villa is nice and kept clean. I would have to say that the water pressure in the upstairs bathroom shower is a mere drizzle and the water never seemed to get hot. For that reason it was never used, which was a waste because it was a nice bathroom. Also, the bath towels in the villa all need to be replaced, for there were in bad condition being very thin with holes. The overall condition of Tanah at Ulu's villa was nice and location was good. With a few upgrades it could be excellent!
thankyou for your very detailed review, it is greatly (email hidden)l of your points are good and important ones and we will act on all of these immediately. Made is a truly wonderful host and i know he will act upon your suggestions regarding maintenance issues which i will pass on to him today.
We stayed at the “Tanah at Ulu” villa for several nights recently while holidaying in Bali. It was a very enjoyable stay and certainly somewhere we would go to again when staying at Uluwatu.
The villa is centrally located and is adjacent to two local warungs (local eateries) which were both good - and a great alternative if you don’t wish to cater for yourself. If you do wish to cater, you should keep in mind that there are not a lot of ‘mini-marts’ scattered around Uluwatu and it would be best to bring much of your provisions with you. (This aspect only adds to eating out being an attractive, cheap alternative!)
The villa was beautifully presented with a well maintained pool and garden in a private setting. The villa itself has two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs – and a huge bedroom and bathroom upstairs. A small kitchen and lounge is also located on the ground floor.
Up to six people would find this villa very comfortable.
The villa has a person who comes in each day and looks after the cleaning and maintains the pool and gardens. He (Made) was extremely helpful regarding advice and local knowledge – and his presence was not intrusive.
Hiring a scooter would be valuable. No matter where you stay around Uluwatu, transport is needed to see the area. Drivers are also available - and Made or the warungs next door can always arrange one if you prefer this to scooters. (Of course, you could just spend the whole time lounging by the pool. No transport needed for that!)
The host canceled this reservation 62 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our stay at Tanah at Ulu was very nice. A fantastic and very large villa with a nice pool and very close to the amazing Uluwatu Beach and the Uluwatu Temple.
Made who took care of the villa was super friendly and helpful which made the stay completely hazzle free.
The description was probably slightly understated which made it better when we got there. Beautifully clean, tidy & most everything we needed. Beds very comfortable. Great area, convenient location for layed back holiday. Kitchenette adequate, surrounding cafes really good. The family says 2 weeks next time!!
thankyou for your kind words and i am truly wrapped that you and your family had a good time. Made is an amazing host and he definitely works very hard. In the future, when you hopefully stay again, please feel free to let him take a day off if you wish. Regarding the water pressure, i am sorry but it is something that we face from time to time . Water pressure and availability is an on going challenge in the area of Uluwatu, but i do appreciate your feedback
Had a truly amazing time at Ulus!
We were picked up and greeted warmly at the airport and taken to the supermarket, which we requested to do during the booking process. When we arrived at the Villa we were welcomed by Made, what a warm, super smiley, polite and helpful individual. Made serviced the Villa everyday, helped us arrange scooters, informed us of secret swimming spots at some of Bali's most beautiful beaches and recommended some great traditional Balinese eating spots. I can't express how lovely Made is and how helpful he was, he definitely made our trip very special.
The house is very clean, bright and most importantly air-conditioned. The pool is incredible, clean, cool and lots of fun. The villa is situated by a couple of great eating spots, which proved very handy for breakfast in the morning. I highly recommend Lands End Cafe which is 200m up the road. The Gong across the road proved very helpful by supplying free wifi and ice cold Bintang while we researched our daily Uluwatu excursions.
Thank you so much for having us. Ulu's was the perfect place for our group of four to relax and unwind.
A special thank you goes to Made. You're a rockstar!
Wonderful! Made was a terrific host. It's in a great location in Uluwatu, across the street from a few great cafes, and all of a 5min drive from the temple. The property is great, with pool and lounge chairs for relaxing after a sticky day in the sun, and comfy beds and AC inside. Would definitely recommend it!
