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
Great experience!!!! Everyone was so kind and helpful to us! The house is beautiful!! And we loved Johny, the dog! Highly recommend this place to anyone!
This villa was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle from Ubud! Such a large place for the two of us, but felt very spacious and tranquil. The surroundings are beautiful, with the openness of the house allowing for you to soak in as much nature as possible! Dewa, aby and kadek, the staff, were all such lovely people who were always a stone throw away if you needed any help. All transport and activities were such a breeze to organise through Dewa, communication was great. Jonny, the dog, was such a buzzing little friendly face to come to on every return.
The only minor thing which didn't bother us one bit but possibly could effect larger groups or families was that it was a bit out of town and lacked communal seating. However our stay was great and would go back anytime!
Villa Uma Santi is located in a beautiful spot on the fringes of Ubud, nestled amongst rice fields. The villa is very open, but we felt quite secure as it is staffed 24/7 - Aby by day and Dewa by night - always keeping an eye out and willing to help. Our children quickly made friends with the resident pets - Jonny the dog and the three cats. We enjoyed our stay at Villa Uma Santi. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
A perfect oasis from the noise and crowds of central ubud. Villa oozed a chilled rustic charm, surrounded by lush gardens and rice fields. So good we cancelled plans to eat in central ubud and stayed home and cooked one night. Super comfy beds, awesome support from Kim and "family", great company from johnny and the cats. Perfect! Thanks Kim.
We had a lovely stay at the villa which was exactly as described. Spacious, airy rooms and lovely views of the rice fields.
Only setback is poor lighting inside the villa. Lights are dim and we could not read in the evenings. A couple of standing lamps will brighten the living room. There is a large lounge seater comfortable for 2 persons but we are 4 adults. An extra couple of single seats in the living room will be great.
Staff Aby waited for our arrival. He even turned on the house lights in the evening to ensure we were welcomed home! Kadek and guard Dewa are all very friendly and made us feel very comfortable during our stay.
Thank you Kim, we had thoroughly enjoyed
Our stay and will definitely recommend this villa to our friends!
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!
