Interaction with Guests
We have a house manager on call should a guest wish to discuss anything. There is also a groundsman Aby who comes to feed the animals and look after the gardens. His times are negotiable and he is happy to work around the guests requirements. The cleaners are available daily for cleans and are also happy to work around the requirements and timetable of the guests.
This is a truly magical spot in Ubud. It's close to town but feels tranquil and wild and untouched. In the evenings I love sitting on the deck with a glass of Jamu watching the fireflies and then falling asleep to the wild symphony of frogs, crickets and geckos.
The sun rises throw flickering light through the big kitchen windows and the sun sets look magnificent from the back deck over the horizon of palm trees.
It's only 30 minutes to walk to the centre of Ubud however the main road can be quite busy so we usually take a scooter. We can arrange scooter hire for you. Alternatively taking a taxi car or scooter taxi is very cheap and easy to arrange in Ubud.
Other Things to Note
We have two young children of our own and we're happy to make their books/toys available on request. The pets of the house are extremely gentle and friendly and well-behaved around children too.
We love our guests to be respectful towards our friendly pets and, of course, to our wonderful staff who have been part of our family for over 5 years now.
Upstairs mezzanine. Large space perfect for yoga, massages or simply stunning sleeping space with 360degree views
this villa looks exactly like the pictures and the four of us enjoyed our stay. location was quiet (abit hard to find if you're not familiar with the roads) and it was in the middle of rice fields which is beautiful. there are four cats and one dog residents in this villa and this was a major plus point as we are animal lovers. great hospitality was given and responses were very speedy. no aircon was needed as it is very cooling (fans were provided though). would love to stay here again!
The villa Uma Santi is, as the name suggests, very peaceful and in the middle of wilderness. The caretakers are also very helpful and go out of their way to accomodate us and our requests. It's very open as well. So you truly get your fresh Ubud air. The only thing is that the villa is away from the main, busy streets so one needs to be prepared for being isolated a bit.
The house is absolutely beautiful and the pet dog Johnny is adorable!
Kim's Balinese family greeted us at the gate and were very accommodating. The place was beautiful nestled in amongst the rice patties. There was all sorts of wildlife to see and really good sunsets. It was a little hard to find but if you just ask the locals in the area they know where to go. I would definitely recommend this place as it's very peaceful and quiet and a little away from the main parts of Ubud.
This is just the perfect Villa for a stay in Bali. We just stayed there for 20 days with our two kids.
The settting is perfect - it is close to Ubud, but far enough to be absolutely quiet (in the ricefield); on a big compound, surrounded by nature.
There is super friendly staff (Kadek cares for the house - knows everything about Bali and helps with everything - even caring for the children, when we went out one night; Aby who even climed the coconut tree for us and grabed some coconut).
The villa is simply huge and very beautiful.
We could definetly recommend staying there.
Staying at Villa Uma Santi was a very pleasant experience. The house is comfortable, it felt like our own home. Location is perfect since the house was at the end of the street where it meets endless of rice paddies. I love the old wooden architecture, especially the vaulted ceiling. Pak Abi and Pak Dewa are really nice and very helpful. The house pets were very friendly as well. I love all the amenities in the house, esp the Japanese bath/shower. Thank you for a great experience and I'll recommend to my friends. And we'll definitely be back again.
Villa Uma Santi is a magical place in the middle of the rice fields in Ubud. The staff of the villa is super friendly and helpful, they even picked us up from the Main Street. The location is a bit off center, but you can stay at home and order home delivery :)
We had a wonderful night there, really felt at home and were taken aback by the hospitality of the staff of the villa.
We felt very welcome on our arrival to Villa Uma Santi, as we were greeted by Aby. Who prepared us a fresh coconut juice, before showing us around. Throughout the whole stay the staff were very friendly and wonderful with our 11 month old daughter. The Villa's location is in a very beautiful spot with rice paddies surrounding the property and there is a real sense of calm from the moment you arrive. Something very unexpectedly came up during our stay which meant we had to alter our booking. The host was very accommodating to this which was very appreciated. All in all if you want an honest, unique experience of Ubud then Uma Santi certainly fits this bill.
