Our extended family had a wonderful time at Taman Sari. We had the whole Villa (3 floors and Bungalow) to ourselves. The staff were great and very helpful, there were some issues with the plumbing but the staff sorted these out as they came up, and we just kept as much airflowing as possible in room 1, and there was talk of screening that room in the future which would make a huge difference. The staff took our washing off to the laundry on request, and while we did have to ask for clean bath towels, tea towels and toilet paper they did provide them on request. Two of the rooms were screened and all rooms had mosquito nets. The kitchen was well outfitted, but there is no hot water in the kitchen sink so we boiled up saucepans full of water on the gas stove. We spent a number of days hanging around, and because we had the whole Villa we had two spaces set up communally, outside room 1 and outside the Bungalow, both of these worked well. There are also large decks off room 2 and 3, which are large enough for hanging out in and there is a pergola in the front yard.
We went on a number of tours with Ricky and they were very informative, at times we would probably have preferred to be driven somewhere as opposed to being on a tour with little input to where we were going and what we were doing but they were all enjoyable nonetheless. We also had 8 people for most of the time, so Vicki and Ricky organised Wayan and his car and that was also great. We really enjoyed the Spice Plantation tour and the Ricky's new Rice Terrace plus secret Waterhole and Swimming Pool tour. Ricky also did all our airport collections and drop offs, and both Vicki and Ricky managed both the APEC traffic and delays and the transition from old to new airport.
The little Warung just down the road was very lovely, they had the nest Vegetarian Nasi Goreng, and we ate a lot. The walk into to town did take us 30 - 45 minutes depending on the heat, so a bit longer than we thought, but there were also road works the whole time we were there so that made it longer. Taman Sari is 2.6km from the centre of Ubud (the markets and the palace). We often walked in and then caught a taxi home, which was very reasonably priced. We also swum in the pool at the hotel just up the road on occasion and that was also great.
Vicky and Ricky were delightful hosts, the staff were wonderful and we highly recommend Taman Sari to small or large groups.
Vicky and Nyoman were great hosts. They helped us so much with our itinerary and planning even before we arrived in Bali. The place was clean, the facilities great. Even when we made slight changes to our plans, Nyoman was very flexible and accommodated us.
The house, although a bit out of the way of ubud town gives a nice quaint country feel, quiet and away from the hussle buzzle. We could also see a sky full of stars and walk the padi fields which were located near the house.
It wasn't difficult to get lunch/dinner as there were 1-2 eateries just a few houses down that served great balinese food for affordable prices.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vicky and Nyoman to my friends visiting Ubud in the future.
Thanks Vicky and Nyoman for the great stay and for providing us a great bali experience!
