May 8th, 2013 - May 10th, 2013“Villa Alamanda was wonderful. The setting is beautiful with a jungle backdrop. The pool area is particularly attractive and totally private. Bedrooms are tastefully presented in Balinese style and the dining area is under cover on the verandah overlooking the jungle. The staff are friendly and available when required, never intruding on your privacy. The food cooked by the chef is prepared with fresh ingredients sourced from the market daily and represented the best Indonesian food we experienced in Bali.
We were a family of 7 meeting for a reunion and could not have asked for more.
I would have no hesitation recommending this property for those seeking an alternative to boring generic hotels.”
December 21st, 2012 - December 28th, 2012“Villa Alamanda was great. The villa itself was beautiful, and the staff were amazing. Ibu Made's cooking was an absolute highlight of our trip to Bali.”
September 29th, 2012 - October 2nd, 2012“Our stay at Villa Alamanda was a memorable one. I am proud of myself for discovering this oasis, on the outskirts of Ubud. Located in the heart of pure Bali, we were able to discover the rich culture of the island first hand whilst being accommodated in a surrounding of beauty and comfort at Villa Alamanda. Attention to detail everywhere.
Many, many thanks. ”
September 23rd, 2012 - September 28th, 2012“We have arrived home recommending Villa Alamanda to friends, family and work mates as a great place to escape to. Nothing was too hard, we were organised without being intruded on. Everyone loved the pool for swimming and hanging out. As friends with teenagers there was privacy and communal space and we thought it was great to have a tv space that was comfortable but not prominant. ”
February 22nd, 2012 - February 25th, 2012“We stayed at Villa Alamando for three nights before we went to Seminyak for a week there in another house. We regret that we didn't spend moredays in Ubud and Alamanda. The house was great , the location likewise and the staff was excellent more than excellent actually, we had tears in our eyes when we had to leave.
We have nothing but good things to say about Alamanda and can recommend it to anyone who likes to visit Bali.”
January 16th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012“Really pleasant stay. Bedrooms were a great size, the air conditioning leaked in the master bedroom on the 2nd day but that was a minor thing. Bathrooms were lovely but baths were so big it would take forever to fill up given the water pressure. Would be good if there was a living space to watch TV/DVD that wasn't one of the bedrooms. The pool and surrounding area was the highlight. Stunning.”
December 24th, 2011 - December 31st, 2011“Absolutely fabulous villa, exceeding our most optimistic hopes. All the staff, including the agents, were great - welcoming, helpful and friendly. Food in particular was absolutely fantastic. All round, could not have been better.”
November 1st, 2011 - November 5th, 2011“This villa was a joy to stay in. Ibu Made and the team at the villa made our stay very special. Ask for Eddy the driver who took us everywhere we wanted. The whole staff went beyond the call of duty. We had a party at the villa during our stay and it was catered and decorated so beautifully. We would love to come back.”
October 28th, 2011 - October 30th, 2011“One of the best Villa in Ubud to stay. Very charming and serene place.. I enjoy the place very much. Will be one of those beautiful memories & experience I have in bali..”
October 1st, 2011 - October 7th, 2011“We thorougly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda and were disappointed it went so quickly! We loved the look and feel of the villa and the grounds. The grounds and the pool were so beautiful, we rarely left them. One of the biggest positives was the staff. Having the same set of staff consistently meant we felt we got to know them. Their level of attention to detail and their friendly attitude made us feel pampered and welcome. And of course Ibu Made's cooking!!! I'm afraid we worked her very hard, eating in every night because her cooking was so good! We would love to go back to Villa Alamanda when we can. ”
September 22nd, 2011 - September 27th, 2011“This villa was a fantastic holiday experience. We had room to spread out or be together as a family. Everything was spotless and the staff were exceptionally well trained and hospitable. I highly recommend this for a family mix of 8 people. We had 2 grannies, 2 babies, a teenager and 3 young parents and it was great. Edi was our driver for 10 hours per day and he was brilliant. The laundry was done daily (even ironed!!!) if we dropped clothes in the basket. It is a great rest for a mum.”
July 20th, 2011 - July 27th, 2011“villa Alamanda is à lovely villa in à beautifull surrounding. everything you need is available in the house. The very friendly and profesional staf is always there to help you. Ibu Made is a very, very good cook. She always comes with ideas for à daytrip and suggestion for an outstanding meal. As on Bali, the temperature is always nice, so therefor you do not miss the absence of an indoor livingroom as we are used to in Europe. The driver takes you everywhere you want. it is no option to take a little stroll from the villa into the neighbourhood.
We would recommend this villa to everyone!
July 7th, 2011 - July 13th, 2011“Great Location, close to Ubud, but in the charm of the local village. Staff are fantastic. well recommended”
July 2nd, 2011 - July 7th, 2011“Good villa for dry season, and staff were excellent. Pool was fantastic and days around it were well serviced. Massage service was excellent and well priced.”
June 24th, 2011 - June 29th, 2011“We were extremely pleased with the villa,grounds and facilities,although we really could not comment on the kitchen as we had no real need to go there as the staff looked after every need in that regard.In fact it was Made and her wonderful staff that made our stay so memorable.”
June 16th, 2011 - June 21st, 2011“lovely place to stay. The cook Ida was really great. Great place to relax but pity about the goat track to get to the villa.
The middle floor bathroom is very tired and the floor drainage needs to be looked but overall we had a lovely time.
