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?
Oh yes, we were spoiled at the Kayumanis Bali villas!
Among the hundreds of villa resorts on the island of Bali with private pools, the Indonesian Kayumanis hotel group stands out as an award-winner.
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 luxurious 5-star hotels in Bali – and the Kayumanis properties rank right up there.
Kayumanis Nusa dua
Kayumanis Nusa Dua received a TripAdvisor “2018 Travelers’ Choice” award and was ranked “Southeast Asia’s Best Honeymoon Hideaway” in the 2017 World Boutique Awards.
It has also 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.

But the property that really stole our hearts is Kayumanis Ubud.
It’s set in tropical gardens of flowering hibiscus and ginger overlooking the Ayung River, close to Ubud, Bali’s cultural center.
Kayumanis Ubud Villas was voted “Best Destination Spa” in the 2018 Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence (Luxury Spa Winners).
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.

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