Recent guest reviews
My stay at the Royal Kamuela Ubud was the most enjoyable experience on my return visit for the third time.The hotel is so well appointed in traditional style feels like your own home.Staff are all so willing tohelp and the general manager is very helpful.
This is an extraordinary boutique facility. Ubud is an exciting and dynamic location in Bali. After a day of sightseeing and shopping this was an oasis of peace and quiet with a wonderful staff in the middle of all the bustle. The website pictures actually under represent how beautiful and secluded the villas are. The private pool is functional, the staff charming, the spa fantastic. My only complaint is my stay was too short and I was reluctant to leave each day to explore.
This is really one of the most small scale resorts we visited with high luxury and optimal privacy. Only 12 villas which each have their full privacy and own large swimming pool with small waterfall. Nice large and private terrace on which you can ask to serve your breakfast, sunning chairs, table with normal chairs, couch, etc. Inside garderobe is kept separate from sleeping part, large bathroom with 2 person bad, separate shower and also with direct access to your own pool. We can't mention anything we were missing ! Internet quick and reliable. Perfect service, staff supports you wherever needed. Twice early morning we have seen monkeys, but if there is nothing to grab, they quickly pass. Location is in the middle of Ubud, but at your villa you have no street sounds and do not have feeling you are in centre of town. We stayed 4 nights and we did enjoy every day !
Apologies I have been meaning to do this for a while. This place is fantastic, great location in the heart of monkey forest road, restaurants, shopping, massages etc yet set back and peaceful. Great villas and service that makes you feel, well royal ! I know service is generally good all over Bali but this takes it to a new level, nothing is too much trouble and every effort is made to give you the best holiday experience ever. We have been back 4 times now and loved every minute.
We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our honeymoon, it was truly the perfect experience. The private villas were exceptional, I really don't think photos do it justice. The property is really close to the monkey forest and yes the monkeys will probably visit you in your villa so make sure you don't leave anything outside as they will take it. But this just adds to the experience. All the staff are super friendly and helpful, they really enjoy their jobs and you can tell they want you to have a fantastic stay. The spa treatments were great value for money and Lina was really polite and attentive to our needs. She explained everything that was happening and made us feel really relaxed during our massages and facials. My only two negatives for the Royal Kamuela is that the pool could be warmer, having it heat controlled would have been much nicer. It was far too cold for me to go in. My husband however, didn't have an issue and went in it everyday. I would have also like the food to be of better quality, the presentation of breakfast was beautiful; it was just a shame the flavour didn't match. This is just my personal preference though, I am sure others would have found the food really nice. Overall the Royal Kamuela is an amazing place, very luxurious and relaxing. If I go back to Bali again, I would most definitely stay here again.
This hotel is a great find. The villas are incredible and offer serenity in an otherwise bustling and fairly noisy Ubud. The staff are friendly and will do everything they can to assist. Late night arrival - sandwiches waiting in the villa for your arrival. Wide choice of breakfast options all served in the privacy of the villas. The villas themselves are spacious and provide top end finishes. All in all a great place to stay.
An amazing facilities, very clean, staff a bit sleepy and some times annoying. Monkey haven't visited us, and swimming pool was absolutely refreshing Unfortunately kitchen close from 10 PM in the hotel, but 24 h supermarket is just around the corner.
My husband and so went here for our honeymoon, and it was amazing! Very relaxing and luxurious. The private pool was a huge plus. The food was amazing. If you get up early (7am) you also might see Monkeys as the hop between buildings! Other pluses is this is a close walk to the Monkey Forest, amazing restaurants, and tourist destinations. The best part of staying in this hotel was the warmth and hospitality of the staff. They treat guests like family. We were interested in the culture of Bali, and the manager and staff were kind enough to take us to the private prayer ceremonies in the Temples in Ubud forest (these are normally closed to tourists). They also took us on a spiritual cleansing ritual underneath a waterfall at a nearby temple. The people of Bali are the warmest kindest people you will meet anywhere. I highlight recommend the Royal Kamuela!
I stayed 2 nights in villa #2. The time spent cannot be forgotten from memory. The location is in the city and every thing is available around you. The food is very delicious and reasonable prices. Clean and good privacy except some villas. The bad point is that it is located near the monkey forest which monkeys may visit guests in the morning as it happened to us. I recommend this villa.
The Royal Kamuela Villas is a absolute must if you want all the boxes ticked for a magnificent villa in the heart of Ubud 50 mts from the street but surrounded in your own garden,pool and tranquillity. From the moment we walked through the Villas doors we knew this place would be very hard to leave and that was exactly the case. The staff and food was magnificent with the manager keeping food served to your Villa at the same prices as on the street so you don't need to leave the villa. Beautifully fitted out with new additions to the resort available in October, we will have no hesitation in returning to the Royal Kumuela. We would like to thank the managers Kadek and marketing manager Yuni for the awesome way in which they looked after us for our special occasion. We thank you both very much. Service, Location and value, Royal Kamuela was one of the beat choices we made whilst in Bali.
