“Our first trip to Bali has been truly wonderful because of our stay in the beautiful Villa Alamanda. The staff team are just perfect. They are have provided some excellent and very tasty food. The staff team have answered our every need. We have been able to enjoy the beautiful garden and a wonderful pool experience. Our stay was also complemented by Gede the recommended villa driver who shared his local knowledge of the Balinese people and their culture.”

“People have often told me that when you travel it is the people you meet that you will remember rather than the places. However with Villa Alamanda I'm convinced that it will be both. The zen-like tranquility of the house combine with the utter graciousness of the staff combine into An Experience that will not be quickly forgotten. Thank you for making us feel so special.”

Made and staff are the kindest people who did everything they could to ensure our stay was enjoyable as it could be - and it was. You are all wonderful, may your life be blessed.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda.The villa and the garden are beautiful. We loved the pool - the perfect place to relax after sightseeing and other activities. Apparently there is a TV room but we never needed it. While its not located in a typical Ubud padi field setting we did enjoy being in a village setting and out of the main tourist area. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, but not overly so. They made this the most relaxing family holiday we have ever had. The food was delicious. ”

“Villa Alamanda is a very nice property, with spacious bedrooms and the pool area is lovely. The staff is excellent and we had a very enjoyable stay there. Note that there is no attached common sitting area, and that the pool area is removed from the house itself, down a level and around the corner. It is very lovely though. The staff is wonderful and Ibu Made prepares the best food. ”

“We loved staying at Villa Alamanda, everything was great. Very minor comments include one bedroom's aircon could have been a bit cooler, but it is being replaced early October and in our group we had an elderly person, so the bathrooms provided a bit of a challenge since the (lovely) showers were over deep baths with steps. We stayed as an extended family in Ubud for a wedding at another venue and Villa Alamanda was like a luxury home away from home, with all the attention and more of a resort, but we had it just to ourselves. The staff are amazing and the cook Ibu Made is incredible - the manager was really considerate and I would highly recommend this amazing place to anyone wishing for peace, quiet, attention, a wonderful pool and gardens and just an fabulous experience. Thanks very much to all. ”

“This is our second visit to Alamanda and once again we had a fantastic time. Everything about this little gem is delightful. The personal yoga classes, spa treatments and massages, the wonderful cooking, the beautifully kept grounds and above all the STAFF. Without the staff it would be just another lovely villa. We were made to feel very special and cared for. We also love the fact the villa is outside of Ubud in a working village so we can soak up the sounds and atmosphere. Cant wait for an opportunity to return..”

“We were 8(including 2 young children) from the same family and we had a wonderful time at the villa . The service was extremely good and all the staff was very nice with all of us and we enjoyed very much all the food prepare by Ibu Made. We would definitively recommend this villa to families or friends who wants to have a nice stay in Ubud area and we will certainly try to visit again this wonderful place”

“Ibu Made and staff make this villa just the best place to stay that anyone could imagine. The location is excellent, just a few minutes drive into Ubud and sitting peacefully on the side of a hill. Very quiet, clean and relaxing place to stay. The pool is amazing and our children had a lot of fun swimming and playing in the water. Don't bother eating out as Ibu Made and her team are amazing cooks and will provide anything that you ask for. We are a group of 4 adults and 4 children and everyone's food needs were looked after. I highly recommend this villa for families.”

“This villa is a little gem. Lovely grounds and welcoming rooms. The staff were wonderful and made us feel very special.. Nothing was too much trouble and we had everything we could wish for.. The location was great, not far from Ubud but not too close. Ultimately we were just happy to sit by the pool and be spoilt with daily spa treatments.. Just fabulous...”

“Our stay at the villa was absolute luxury. The staff were brilliant, couldn't do enough for us, but also friendly and relaxed. They were fabulous with my 15 month old daughter Ella - the chef, Ibu Made, even watched her for a couple of hours one morning while my husband and I had massages. The food is divine. Many reviews mentioned the food and said we would not want to go out - given we had been to Bali before, and eaten out for every meal, I didn't really believe this. We ended up having dinner in more often than we went out - and the best meals we had in Bali were at the villa (and at the Bridges restaurant, where the food is excellent but pricey for Bali). The location outside of Ubud is not an issue, and the great facilities and large grounds and pool area are a real bonus. If you are in a group, I would highly recommend this villa. ”

“Great place to spend a week in beautiful Bali - within the gorgeous village of Tengulak and only 15 - 20 mins away from the great shopping and restaurants of Ubud. We really enjoyed walking around the village, visiting the local school and temples. Can't recommend highly enough - all meals top quality, all staff were amazing (thank you Made & Ibu Made). We will be back.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“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. ”

Jane Wager, Philippines

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“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.”

“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! ”

“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. Rod B”
