Beautiful house with plenty of room for our family of 9 (5 adults, 4 children 10 and under). Kids LOVED the pool and the service by Wayan, Nong and others was great! Provided us with many ideas of things to do in the area, and set up reservations for us. House was very clean and updated. One of our best stays ever! We did need transportation to get to town, but would definitely stay there again.

What can I say - Villa Shinta Dewi Ubud - GO THERE!!!. Wayan and the team went above and beyond to welcome us late at night and continued to make our holiday relaxing and memorable. The level of service was excellent without being intrusive, the willingness to assist with arranging tours, dinners and the offer of advice on local events and places to visit was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were exactly as pictured, beautifully kept and ideal for a diverse range or groups. It's space and wonderful design allows for plenty of private space whilst still being ideal for social gatherings. I would certainly return and would definitely recommend Shinta Dewi Ubud as a great place to spend time. Sensational 8 day stay. Thank you

We travelled in a group - two families with three kids altogether. The pick-up and drop off at the airport for us were fine, despite both our arrival and departure times being in the middle of the night. The villa is spacious, well equipped and has an amazing pool - the staff couldn't have been better. A huge thank you to Wayan, Ari, Putra, Gusti and chef. Breakfasts are substantial and delicious. The eat in option is reasonably priced and we had a lovely bar-b-q cooked for us on New Years Eve. Wayan's local knowledge and excellent English make organising day trips a treat, and his advice on everything from traffic to bike companies was spot on. Ubud itself is lovely with so manybthings to do we feel we have barely scratched the surface. The Waterbom Park is a must if you have children as is the bike ride (we used ECO tours) we cycled downhill from the volcano - just lovely to see Bali daily life as you cycle along. ECO tours also provided a delicious lunch at the end at their restaurant where they grown their own produce onsite - delicious. We also had a sunset meal on the beach (overpriced but no surprise as you do eat right on the beach with an unobstructed view of the sun setting). There are also options to do white water rafting, elephant tours, ziplining and quad biking so we will definitely return. BUT save time to spend at the villa - it is just lovely. Thank you for having us!

“Beautiful Villa”

It didnt start off well from the airport, we were travelling with 6 adults +1 baby and 5 big luggages so a van came to pick us up fr the airport. It was a long walk under the hot sun and i had a baby in my sling carrier. Worst when i found out the baby car seat we booked thru the villa was not fixed on to the seat and the driver knw nothing about it. I informed ika (the person v deal with for booking and payment) few weeks in advance that the car seat should be fixed on before our pick up at the airport. So the car seat didnt seem to be compatible with the car. It was more than 1 1/2 hrs of me strapping on my baby in the sling carrier throughout the whole journey which made us really uncomfortable and v didnt feel safe at all.

However the long and agonizing journey was all forgotten whn v reached the villa. Everyone was in love with the pool. We like how clean the villa is and the way its designed - very interactive and thoughtful. The pool was already baricated up since we have a baby but was easily removed whm v decided we didnt need it. Then we told them the problem with the car seat and they tried rectifying it. though it took them awhile to figure it out, they managed to get it fixed in the end. We then managed to use it everywhere v go even thru the taxi they helped us book.

Wayan, Ari & another lady were very helpful and approachable. They helped us inflate 2giant swans and a giant slipper float for the pool. Its become obvious that v intend to spend alot of time in the pool which v did. My baby at 13mo enjoyed swimming with us in the big pool plus the water feels warm most the time.

The room was spotless however the baby cot could have been better. Although it was fixed on with mosquito net but we didnt find the cot useful....it was more of a playpen turned into bed which my baby didnt wanna get in. So my baby co sleep with us and its all good too.

They were occasions where we needed small lil things like tabasco sauce, lemongrass tea and these guys went n get it for us the next day. And 1night my hubby was having a gastric and Ari went out middle of the night to help us find med though he couldnt find it but i appreciated his help.

The villa is so well managed that i didnt hv to worry bout mosquitos n bugs. We hv only met a gecko a lizard or 2 and a toad.
Besides the difficulty of communicating w some of the staff the rest of the services are well deserving a 5 star rating. All thanks to Wayan who seems to be most helpful whn hes around. The dinner table was set nicely for us eventhough we brought back take-away fd. I also like how each area is well connected. I used the kitchen most the time preparing food for my lil one and i could still mingle with everyone else and the kitchen was only meant for guests so v dont get into each others way. We like the study area too with tv which we use for entertaining my baby when v hang around the living. It was glassed up so v could still see everyone else. The only thing i didnt like bout the villa's design was maybe the square table at the living area, the edges are sharp and seems dangerous for my baby.

This villa is a gem and definitely won our hearts. Our family is already planning for our next trip back soon. Keep it up guys and thanx for the wonderful experience.

Dear Lye,

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the villa and thank you for the very positive comments. With regards to the points which you feel that need improvements we also thank you for your input which will allow us to improve on our services going forward. More specifically we would like to comment as follows:

� Long walk in the hot sun ? The drivers are supposed to meet and greet guests on arrival, take them to the exit at arrivals before going to get the vehicle and drive it to the exit to collect the guests and luggage. We do not know why he did not do so on this occasion but will look in to it.
� Baby car seat ? It was expected that the driver would secure the baby seat in the vehicle before pick up. In future we will ensure that this happens before the vehicle leaves for the airport.
� Baby cot - We will inspect the baby cot and replace it if necessary.
� Edges on the square table ? Good input and we will address this matter.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the villa in the not too distant future.

“A home away from home - you wish time would stand still”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The stay at Villa Shinta Dewi was an absolute dream. We travelled with 4 adults and 4 children and stayed for 4 nights - wish we could have stayed for much longer. The property is stunningly beautiful and decorated with a lot of taste and style by the owner. It was even better than we had expected from the information we had seen online. But what made this vacation unforgettable for us was the manager Wayan and his team. Their friendliness, pro-activeness and grace were outstanding and made us truly feel at home away from home. The staff was always flexible to accommodate our requests and very helpful in arranging everything from transport to trips to special menus and even watching the children. The food served at the villa has absolute restaurant quality and beats eating out by a mile. We will certainly be back on our next trip to the island.
