Recent guest reviews

The staff were incredibly friendly! Beautiful scenery, sadly the beautiful pool was too cold to use even on a warm day! The food was nice. It's about 10 minutes drive from Ubud centre so you'd always need a taxi to go away from the Villa. Be careful the tiles in the rooms are VERY slippery. Overall such a beautiful place with friendly people.

The worst thing about coming here is leaving...I booked to stay here 3 days and it simply wasn't enough!I travelled alone as a 31 year old female and was made to feel so welcome by all off the staff (so friendly and professional!). I stayed in villa kunti 2 with a very big bed with netting,outdoor and indoor bathtub and shower and my own private pool with 2 spa tables (the perfect option for honeymoon couples!). There are two other pools in the resort; the infinity pool and the river pool down at the spa.A massage is a must do for this resort, with 20% discount offered.A full back massage for 1 hour including service charge was £16-a bargin!Having a massage down at the spa at the river was heaven! As other reviews have said there are many stairs but for me it was a way to burn off the calories from the delicious cocktails (good selection and reasonable price with happy hour 3-5 daily).Also the resort is on a hill to create the lush tropical atmosphere it is renowned for so for me this was part and parcel of the experience! I found there was a good selection of food for all mealtimes (try the crispy duck) and if you so wish there are a limited number of restaurants nearby to venture to in the scenic setting of rice fields or you can take the hotels free shuttle service into Ubud. There is a safe in the bedroom which you control with your own key.There is also a fan air-conditioner which was very effective.My only criticism is the hair dryer. For those with longer or unruly hair the power of the hairdryer is not great so maybe bring your own?My hair is short and with the heat it dried itself quickly.My room was cleaned daily and towels and bedding changed!Included bathrobes,towels,beachtowels,slippers and other personal hygiene amenities.Wifi was free and worked in most parts of the resort very well. There are so many little nooks and crannies to explore here and the authentic balinese decor is divine. I had obsessively been reading trip advisor reviews before my holiday and this place has met the expectations and more.Well done Gusking and staff!I would like to mention more staff specifically except I would be spelling them phonetically!

Alam Ubud was an absolutely beautiful hotel with the most helpful staff. Set in a dreamy rainforest, the villas provide extensive views of nature and the surrounding environment. You will be transported to an experience of tranquility and secluded from the rush of the inner city of Ubud.

My friend said to me ..." this is the nicest place I have stayed response .."this is the nicest place ANYONE has stayed ! ....just so lovely, relaxing and gorgeous! Staff are just beautiful and the jungle/Ridge/river setting is absolutely magnificent.....sublime !

Picture yourself being driven through the countryside and on to side roads with Paddy fields. You then enter into the property located at the edge of a tropical forrest. A small hotel with only 15 beautiful large Villas. Spectacular views from the balcony overlooking the thick foliage of the tropical forrest. If I had all the time in the world I would spend the morning watching the birds early in the morning and spend reading a book from the same balcony of the Villa all day. Alam Ubud receives fresh natural water from the springs in and around the property. They are used to fill the swimming pools making it even more inviting to dive in to rejuvenate. The local believe the springs have the ability to cleanse skin ailments too. Friendly helpful staff. Fluent in English. The only issue I found which I did not like was from the in room safe which used a key to open instead of a combination. Getting in the Ubud town can be accessed with the hotel shuttle. They also have private cars with drivers which can be hired to drive you around for a fee. The food on the menu was limited. Breakfast buffet was not the best but not bad. I would return to the hotel on another trip. The hotel has got my recommendation.

The setting of Alam Ubud is so peaceful and beautiful, located in the "jungle" away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and crowds. The villas are spacious and private and the staff are exceptional! Always friendly , smiling and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. A first class experience and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was the most amazing experience of Bali. Trust me the minute u land in bali you should book yourself a pool villa and book a massage to get rid of your tiredness. The ambience relieves you from all your stress. You can hear the sound of rivel flowing which by the way can be explores once you descend down the steps and the chirping sound of grasshoppers is like a sweet melody to your ears. A special thanks to our host Satya who willingly organised our anniversary cake twice!! and graciously helped us in all the manner. A must try stay if your ever visit bali.

We stayed three nights and it was very relaxing. The atmosphere was really nice, the hotel is surrounded by nature and the pool is a must! Delicious local food and good international food also. The staff was helpful and they were always smiling. I recommend this place if you would like to relax in the middle of nature.

This was a truly fantastic place to stay! This being my first trip to Bali, the staff at Alam Ubud Villas could not have done more for my boyfriend and I! Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and relieved of our luggage, shown to our enormous room, with private pool and terrace. We then had the pleasure of dinning in the on site restaurant, which offered a huge variety of dishes both traditional and European. The following days were the most relaxing with the staff ensuring your every need was catered too. Thank you so much to all the staff at Alam Ubud for making the first part of our visit to Bali and dream holiday. Could not recommend this place enough!!!

It was nearly 9pm when we checked in and there's a big pile of unknown objects right in the middle of the bed. The receptionist said it's not inserts, it's wood but we believed it's not. So we requested to change room and we got upgraded for one night. On the next morning, we got told that we needed to change back to normal room type, which we were fine with it. And AGAIN, there's a pile of unknown objects right in the middle of the bed and in the bathroom! The other staff said it's some kind of inserts from the woods which is not harmful. As you can see from the attached photos, I don't know any guests will feel comfortable with this situation TWICE! So they moved us to another room and I have been waiting them to move my luggages for 1 hr! Really this is the WORST experience ever!
