Kayumanis Villas Make a Splash in Bali

Our own pool?

Complimentary airport transfers, 30-minute welcome massages and private anytime shuttle service to town?

Breakfast and afternoon tea served in our villa? (Also complimentary, of course…)

Oh yes, we were spoiled at the Kayumanis Bali villas!

Kayumanis Bali

Among the hundreds of villa resorts with private pools on the romantic island of Bali, the Indonesian Kayumanis hotel group stands out as an award-winner.

Kayumanis Nusa Dua is one of four Kayumanis resorts in Bali, each with a collection of villas with private pools

Kayumanis has four properties in Bali, all of which regularly snag top awards (including “Travelers Choice” awards from TripAdvisor).

We stayed at some of the most beautiful and romantic hotels in Bali – and the Kayumanis properties rank right up there.

Kayumanis Nusa Dua recently received TripAdvisor‘s “Travelers’ Choice Award” for 2024.

As for other awards, they’ve been ranked “Southeast Asia’s Best Honeymoon Hideaway” in the World Boutique Awards.

And they’ve won “Villa of the Year” in the Indonesia Travel & Tourism Awards.

The Nusa Dua resort won us over with its hideaway location near the glorious gold sand beaches of Nusa Dua, Bali’s luxury resort area.

Wake up early for a sunrise breakfast on the Nusa Dua beach, or sip coconut cocktails later at the beach club

Kayumanis Ubud

At Kayumanis Ubud, you can swim in your private villa pool, or for a change of scene, do laps in the large resort pool.

But the property that really stole our hearts is Kayumanis Ubud.

Located close to Ubud, Bali’s cultural center, the resort is set in tropical gardens of flowering hibiscus and ginger and overlooks the Ayung River.

Like the Nusa Dua property, Kayumanis Ubud Villas also recently received a TripAdvisor 2024 “Travelers’ Choice Award.”

Conde Nast Johansens has given them an “Award of Excellence” and named them “Best Destination Spa” too.

The lovely Balinese culture is strong here.

When checking into our villa, our feet were bathed with rose-petal water to wash away bad feelings and leave them outside.

As for activies, we took a complimentary walking excursion early one morning with a butler/guide through traditional rice paddies to a rural village.

Our top travel tips and resources

Hotels: Booking.com is great for scoring a “wow” hotel – or at least a decent one – invariably at lower rates than the hotel’s own website. We especially like Booking’s flexible cancellation policy!

Vacation homes, condos and rentals: We prefer and use Vrbo (Vacation Rentals by Owner).

Flights: To book the cheapest flights, search on Google Flights or Expedia. (Just be aware your tickets may be non-refundable if you get them through Expedia.)

Tours: For the best local food, walking and other guided tours, plus skip-the-line tickets to attractions, check out Viator (a TripAdvisor company) and GetYourGuide.

Car rental: Renting a car is often one of the best ways to explore off the beaten path. Discover Cars searches car rental companies so you get the best rates.

Travel insurance: SafetyWing is designed for frequent travelers, long-term adventurers and digital nomads. It covers medical expenses, lost checked luggage, trip interruption and more. We also have and recommend Medjet for global air medical transportation and travel security.

Travel gear: See our travel shop to find the best luggage, accessories and other travel gear. (We suggest these comfy travel sandals for city walking, the beach and kicking about.)

If you are on vacation in Ubud with your family or your partner, a villa like this would be very suitable. Thanks!
