“A delightful and restful bali residence”
Reviewed 20 May 2011 for a stay in October 2010

We loved the seclusion and beautiful gardens of the villa. It is very private a world away from the rush of the main street and traffic of ubud, yet only a couple of minutes walk. The staff were very helpful, and the breakfasts beautiful Lovely touches of fresh frangiapnnis each day.

We stayed 7 nights in Villa Sungai and the experience was both very positive and very negative.

First the good things :-)
The location in the middle of the nature is amazing during daytime and the surroundings are very attractive. It is very quite and close to the citycenter (only 5 minute walk). Gus and Tanggu makes a very nice breakfast. The living room is also very nice.

Then the bad things :-(
As a traditional Balinese house Villa Sungai did not have A/C or windows in the bedrooms which means that the bedroom is very noisy (from all the animals/insects/music from nearby resorts) and very hot. Due to the humidity (I suppose) the kitchen looks very old and worn.

Situated so close to nature you have to have a very tolerant view upon wildlife in your home. When we stayed here we found a rat strolling around in the kitchencabinet, we had giant spiders in the bedroom and Gecko pooh in the beds.

Laundry is also part of the rate payed for the room. Unfortunately their washingmachine was (or is) broken and Gus and Tanggu said that I could to one of the nearby places to get my laundry done. I insisted that laundry was part of the rate that we payed for the room and if we should go to some of the other places to get our laundry done, then we should have a reduction in the rate payed for the room. After some discussion they accepted doing our laundry (by hand) but they did not seem very happy about this. When we got our laundry back it was not very clean :-(

I believe that Villa Sungai will loose a lot of its charm during the next few years since hotels are being build all around the property.

Villa Sungai has many good things to offer but also many "not so good" things, so make sure your consider all aspects of a stay here before you make a booking.

Villa Sungai is designed and constructed using traditional Balinese principles. Specifically, this means open-air pavilion living and thatched roofing. This is clealy stated in our description of the home and should be of no surprise to those who book. (Please do not book if you want air conditioning!)

The blurred lines between where the house ends and nature begins is the charm - we are told - by most who stay. They choose our villa and re-book because they are looking to experience the "real" Bali outside the homogenous four walls of yet another hotel.

Naturally, surrounded by so much nature some critters will occasionally be found around the home. Yes, we have resident geckos (Albert and Anthea) who are harmless, and the occasional spider and rat may be sighted, but our staff diligently remove anything offensive, and certainly no nests can be found!

The evening songs of the jungle and the distant sound of villagers at play (traditional music till 9.30pm most nights) is a relaxing treat for most of our guests, and part of Villa Sungai's sensual appeal.

The kitchen is not from a catalogue. It is simple and adequate and is just as it appears in the photos.

We regret our washing machine broke down, but that has now been fixed.

Villa Sungai is in a central, but secreted and unspoiled location.We believe the villa's appeal will continue to be abundant to anyone who surrenders to the rhythms of nature and village life.
