Fantastic hotel and the most amazing staff! We booked a pool view room. Only down side was there was work going on next door and was really noisy! We asked to be moved and they did say they would upgrade us to a room away from the noise. We did look at it but we didn't think the room was as nice, so we decided to stay in the one we had. It looks like the work will be going on for quite a while, so take this into consideration if booking a pool view room.The pool we practically had to ourself and was lovely. It could do with cleaning each morning as flowers floating it in because they had fallen from the trees over night - But not a big issue.
The only other down side to booking a pool room is you don't get the view you get if you book a villa, but obviously this is a lot more expensive. Over all the room was great, food was lovely and staff were amazing. If you can afford it then book a villa to get the view as it really is amazing!
It is too far to walk to anything but the hotel does provide a shuttle bus that goes every hour from the hotel between 9-5 for free so that was good. Its a shame it doesn't do it later but you can just get a taxi back for about £4 after 5pm. We ate in ubud most nights as its cheaper and lots of choice!

Amazing, beautiful room and facilities and I also enjoyed the private beach sun chairs provided by the hotel. After a two week tour in more basic accommodation, my one night stay was wonderful! Highly recommended. Also, the restaurant serves great food - the fresh chocolate crossiant served for breakfast was fantastic!

Astana private villas were peaceful, quite, clean, comfortable and reasonably well maintained. Our room is probably due for a small touch up, but nothing major. The staff were excellent, always smiling and polite, which was our experience of most of the Balinese people we met. There are good shops and facilities near by, Naughty Nuri's is famous for it's BBQ pork ribs (delicious), Yoghurt Philosophy is directly across the road from Naughty Nuri's and does great coffee (as well as frozen yoghurt and smoothies) while Bening Spa does a great Balinese massage for 50,000 IDR (which is about $5 AUD). Overall, I would recommend Astana if you're planning a holiday in Bali.

Bagus Jati is the most AMAZING place to stay in Bali!!! Words do not give this beautiful place justice. The grounds are perfect, the views are spectacular, and the service is impeccable! This was my first solo trip to Bali and I would say Bagus Jati was beyond perfect. I most appreciated how much the staff take care of you and how much they truly care about you! I appreciated how every staff member seemed to know my name and always said Hi and asked how I was doing. I also appreciated the BEST yoga and meditation classes I have ever been to. The onsite activities were all included such as learning Balinese massage, and making hair oil which were all fun!!! The villas are gorgeous with fresh new flowers in rooms daily. The food is amazing as it is grown on site literally in front of the kitchen. I ate so much because the food was so fabulous that I might have gained some weight. Everything about this retreat is perfect and I hope you will also have a perfect stay!!!

I loved this hotel. The villa exceeded my expectations and the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful or lovely. The location of the hotel, about a 20 minute drive away from Ubud, might not suit everyone but I was looking for a totally chilled out break so for me it was perfect. The hotel runs a free shuttle bus into Ubud several times a day so you can easily get into town when you want to.

My wife and I stayed for four nights in early August 2014. We booked a 1-bed villa with private pool.
The accommodation was without fault and was serviced daily. The private pool was excellent and was totally private. The overall resort was well maintained and its location was just perfect set on the slopes of rice paddies.
The resort has recently completed extensive renovations and so earlier reviews may now be out-dated.
The food both in the restaurant and by the pool was of good quality however the menu was a bit restricted. Similarly the range of drinks, especially at happy hour, was somewhat limited.
All the staff were lovely and a real pleasure to have got to know.
Overall, we had a really pleasant, relaxing stay at Kamandalu

Everything about this hotel was an absolute pleasure. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! My daughter and I took a much needed 7 day break, staying at Maya Ubud Resort and Spa for the entire time. We really didn't need to leave the resort and only did so to shop in the city centre and to experience some of the local restaurants.
The gardens were delightful, the yoga pavilion and the yogis were delightful, and the hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning for another stay at this wonderful place.

We arrived expecting the villa to be beautiful and the staff to be accommodating…everything was so much more!!! The staff were genuinely friendly and wonderful and our villa was the most tranquil, relaxing and beautiful place we have ever stayed! If we ever have the opportunity to return to Bali, we would most definitely stay there again!

Was the most relaxing luxury I've experienced. Didn't overall think too much of Bali but was more than happy to just stay at our villa. Staff are so helpful, drop offs anywhere in Seminyak are not a problem, room service was awesome, bed was delicious. Was wonderful place to stay.
