Pondok Umalas is just new and can't wait to be filled up with live.
Our stay at Pondok Umalas was so much more than we expected. Dian, the manager, was wonderful. Before we arrived she scheduled shuttles to pick us up at the airport and arranged for a scooter rental for the week. Once we arrived, she booked massages for us in our own room. The massages were great and very inexpensive, 135,000 for an hour. Another perk of staying at Pondok Umalas, the owner also owns a very delicious italian restaurant. Anything you order can be delivered and added to your hotel bill.
The rooms look exactly as the photos. There were no surprises. We stayed in a suite (email hidden) pool. And loved the outdoor shower! I would however recommend if you are a woman, bring your own hair drier. The one they provided barely produced any hot air.
I felt that Pondok Umalas really went above and beyond at the end of our trip. I had asked for a very late checkout (6pm) and they were happy to allow. My flight was then post pond a few days because of a volcanic eruption. Pondok Umalas allowed me to stay there and even upgraded me to their villa because they needed to do some construction in our suite. The villa was beautiful!
Definitely coming back to Pondok Umalas when I return to Bali!
Lovely stay. Unfort only for one night.
The place is cozy and quiet , well designed and neat. The staff is very nice smiley and helpful.
That was probably our best hotel experience on Bali. Everything at Pondok Umalas was much better than we've expected! Our room was all new and super clean with a great comfy bed. Also I have to give our personal thanks to Dian. She (email hidden), really helpful, very patient and always friendly, even during our messy check-out when we've overslept and were extremely near to miss our flight :) (I'm really sorry for the mess!)
We will remember this stay for a long time and will definitely come back some day!
Perfect place for those people who'd like to stay (email hidden) but not far from energy and vibes of Seminyak (by bike of course). The villa is very cozy and comfortable with the nice lounge downstairs and big bed on the 2d floor. Everything looked exactly (email hidden) from the website so I wasn't disappointed except only one thing - it was special smell from the wooden roof because of humidity but you really cannot avoid it if you stay in such place so no complain:) after all aircond helped a little bit. They clean the rooms every 3d day I think for me it was enough. I liked location very much, there are a lot of villas around, some small shops with necessary things, few restaurants, bike rent, it's close both to Changgu and Seminyak.
let me make my word short, I'm extremely satisfied with everything over here especially the people treating us so friendly and helpful. Thanks Pondok Umalas gives us a memorable honeymoon here. We will come back again! and 1 more thing the rate is reasonable as well
