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!

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 partner and I found an idyllic place to unwind. We could have stayed at the resort all week drinking in the lush hill-side views, listening to the sounds of nature and enjoying the infinity pool, spa treatments and ginger and lemongrass tea -- however we did travel on the hotel shuttle [35 minutes] to Ubud most days to meet friends. It was always terrific to come back to the resort - as it is away from the hustle and bustle - and at 750 metres above sea level the temperature is refreshingly cooler than in Ubud.
You probably wish to know about the accommodation - it's superb with luxurious bathrooms. Staff service is sublime.
The attention to detail at the resort was amazing, from the daily arrangement of bright tropical flowers in water fountains, the stunning views from the restaurant, day spa, and the balcony in your room and the careful layout of the stone walkways and lanterns which gently light up the paths at night.
We consumed healthy food every day, as the restaurant uses organic fruit and vegetables grown on the premises and offers plenty of vegan and gluten free options. We attended a yoga and meditation class, and joined in a couple of the morning activities, immensely enjoying the nature walk to Jati village.
Transfers to and from Denpasar airport were easy. On arrival there is a customer service desk near the location where drivers wait and in our case, a customer service representative introduced himself and located our driver for us.
Best holiday ever!

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

We had a refreshing and relaxing experience at the Maya Ubud. This hotel is a piece of paradise just a short distance from the Ubud village. The hotel is right between rice fields and a beautiful river valley. The food was excellent, the beds are comfortable, our villa was nice. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the facilities are kept in good condition. The fitness club is modern, and the pools are beautiful. We also took advantage of the spa facilities, and the massage treatment and staff were excellent. As vegetarians we found good food choices, and the hotel also has fire dances on the weekends which was a nice surprise for us when we arrived on Saturday evening after a full day of travel.
Overall I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone. My only note of caution to people is that the villas are right beside the forest, so be aware that there will be insects in the room, so if you are squeamish about bugs, you might want to stay in the main hotel. Also note, that this hotel is better suited for couples of families with older children

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.

When we booked this hotel, we just trusted past reviews of this hotel. Did not know what to expect but it was truly amazing. Villa was quiet and clean. Staffs were super friendly. They really took care of us good. Because they only have 20 villas, they really deliver personal and superb service. Food was DELICIOUS! Candle light dinner was good. Very romantic. Their everyday breakfast was so good. We really enjoyed their food. I cannot think of one bad thing about this place. From airport pick up to drop off, enjoyed every moments of our stay.
