“terrific”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I know I have found my Bali haven!~ Staying for two weeks, first as single traveller and then with a pair of friends I found Villa Sungai perfect for all of us in different ways.

For me the sense of tranquility, together with a complete feeling of safety, enhanced my pleasure.

Together, my friends and I found the spacious fan cooled bedrooms with marble bathrooms, the simple but stylish living spaces, lovely small lush garden and plunge pool provided us with everything we needed.

The two man staff were professional, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Managing somehow to always be 'there' without being obtrusive!

The small kitchen was adequate for a simple meal, but we found the nearby restaurants gave us a good variety of food in pleasant surroundings.

I know I've found my "bali Haven". I'll be back!

“Exactly what we wanted!”
Reviewed 22 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My hubby and I arrived at Villa Sungai in need of a relaxing "Ubud" holiday and Villa Sungai did not disappoint. We loved the setting, nestled down in the jungle on the river, totally tucked away and private. We were greeted by the very lovely staff (only two) who were warm, smiling and helpful. The Villa has everything you need and nothing you don't, if you are looking for somewhere relaxing and beautiful. There are some 'primative' aspects - you are in the jungle after all. There may be bugs ( mozzies are kept at bay by nets over beds and evening lighting of coils). They didnt bother us at all. The rosters are pretty loud but we learned to tune them out. Breakfast was cooked for us every morning, with a beautful table setting overlooking the river. Heaven! Great location, close enough to everything, but separate from the hustle. Loved it, would recommend to anyone looking for a private, not to flashy villa getaway.

“Tranquility right in the middle of busy Ubud”

From the moment we were welcomed by our smiling Balinese host I knew the week ahead would be the relaxation I had been waiting for. The property is beautifully designed and away from the busy-ness set in the bush over a river. The pool is small but perfect to laze beside and dip into.
Breakfasts are cooked for you and there is a menu to choose from. (Ask for the special banana pancakes topped with grated coconut - they were divine).

“An enchanting secret base for travelers who want to experience true Balinese life, architecture and culture.”
Reviewed 7 February 2012 for a stay in July 2010

My husband and I have family links in Bali, which means lots of lovely places to stay are on offer. However since about 2002 our "home" of choice whenever we visit Bali has been Villa Sungai Ubud. It's always a joy to return there.

Villa Sungai Ubud is a tiny jewel set within a larger jewel: Ubud. Staying there you become part of the Balinese environment, and yet because the villa is so private it also provides a refuge from that environment, if you need some time out.

Villa Sungai Ubud is not a place for people who want air-conditioned luxury, there are lots of great hotels in Bali for those who want this. Rather, the villa is an enchanting secret base for travelers who want to experience true Balinese life, architecture and culture.

The beauty of the villa is quite extraordinary and because of it's traditional architecture is open to the air, nature is all around you. And you are in a rainforest / river jungle environment. So yes, you may encounter local - harmless - wildlife in all shapes and forms. But having said that, we've stayed numerous times and only encountered birds and squirrels (on the verandas) and geckos (on the walls).

The clean and welcoming pool is promoted on the villa's website as a plunge pool, which by definition means it's small. However it's size has not stopped it keeping my family cool and happy, and it's a great place to have your breakfast served in the morning.

The villa is indeed central, all the wonderful things Ubud had to offer are within walking distance. The villa's dedicated staff nearly die of boredom when we come to stay, because we are there to see family and rarely organize day tours or attend dances / cultural events. So please, come and stay and put their wonderful expertise to good use, sharing with you what magic places Bali and Ubud are :)

“not luxury”
Reviewed 22 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

It certainly was not luxury as some reviews say it is but then again we didn't expect it to be we knew it was in a jungle setting and accepted that

I found the pool small but it was clean except for the spider in it which we easily removed with the net left beside the pool in such a setting as this villa is it is only natural to see the occasional rat and spiders in the kitchen or bedrooms after all were not in some luxury villa and we were in the middle of the jungle above a dirty river which the villa is not responsible for
It was a shame though that at the time of our staying most of the area around the pool had been cleared so there was no privacy from the house opposite or the 2 above or the new noisy one next to it just being built
The surprise was the snake staring at me while I sat in the lounge room and another outside scurrying away
What we could not tolerate was the filthy cooking utensils in the kitchen which were to be used for our brekkie next morning now there was no excuse for cockroach poo or the dirty frying pan the mould around the mixer and cooking equipment in the cupboards
Maybe just maybe the previous tenants left this disgusting mess but then I would assume those caring for the place would have cleaned them thoroughly before we arrived they are clean now we washed boiled and scrubbed them

WE left the next morning and cancelled further bookings for later in the year
Villa Sungai is in a great position in Ubud it is old and tired make sure it is what you are looking for
it is open to all the elements of nature as one review said it is open to all the elements of nature including rats spiders snakes
