From the arrival to check out, the villas were perfection. The staff was so kind and helpful from the start. The villa comes with a great breakfast that was delivered to our room. There are monkeys in the morning that make you feel like you are inside the forest. The private pool is so much larger than the pictures make it seem! When I asked about how to hire a day driver, they offered one from the hotel. This was a great relief since I had felt hesitant about hiring someone from the street as they could rip you off or scam you. It was a little more pricey (around $60 USD), but the extra $10 or so was well worth it as you had the assurance from the hotel and a quality vehicle and knowledgeable driver (Dega was our driver and he was the absolute best). Overall, I would highly recommend staying here, from the great location to the wonderful staff, you really couldn't ask for anything more.

We spent 3 nights in Royal Kamuela hotel in Ubud and will come back for sure. We stayed in Villa 1 which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. A private pool in the hot climate of Bali is a special luxury. I had two 2 hour treatments in the spa with Lina and can not praise her enough, face, and body massage was very good. All the staff was very friendly and helpful

My daughter and I had 4 nights in this heavenly villa with a private pool. Everything you could need is provided in the villa and tastefully decorated with all the luxurious comforts of home. The staff were so friendly, helpful, professional and attentive. I highly recommend your stay here and hope to return myself one day. The location is perfect for shopping, eating and sightseeing. My daughter and I are vegan and every effort was made to give us the food options we required for the complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea. We were genuinely sad to leave this little piece of heaven in Ubud. You will not regret choosing this accommodation. Thank you for having us.

We spent 2 nights at Royal Kamuela. We were 3 couples, each couple staying in their own villa. The service from the staff was excellent and the villas where beautiful!! Can recommend it to anyone visiting Ubud. Wish we spent more time in Ubud.

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Royal Kamuela Villas in Ubud, for five nights, recently. From the moment I arrived it was clear that this was a very special place. The staff were quite exceptional and so warm, welcoming and professional. I felt like an honoured guest in someone's beautiful accommodation. In fact, it felt like home. One staff member even said "Welcome Home" when I arrive back from exploring Ubud one evening. The villas are very clean and beautifully presented, as well as extremely comfortable. I felt like I'd landed in Heaven when I arrived and saw my accommodation. Breakfast can be in your villa and this is a real treat. The food was delicious and beautifully made. You do need to eat inside if you're a bit nervous about monkeys, as they do "visit" the villas and quite like sharing breakfast! Mainly, they run along the tops of the surrounding walls. There is also a spa that does wonderful massages and beauty treatments, on site. The location is also fantastic - right in the centre of Ubud, but you'd never know it as it is so very quiet and peaceful. The villas provide cars that drive you within Ubud for free and staff are only too happy to help with arranging tours around Bali. I highly recommend Royal Kamuela Villas, Ubud! It's the perfect place to stay, very safe and the best accommodation I've stayed in, in Bali! Thank you so much Royal Kamuela for such a blissful experience! I can't wait to return! :)))))))

Our jaws dropped when we saw the room. The accommodations are amazing at this hotel. You would never expect such paradise sitting behind the main road in Ubud!! We stayed at two other 5 star resorts during our trip and Royal Kamuela was undoubtedly our favorite. It is very romantic; it would be perfect for a honeymooning couple. They offer tea time between 4 and 6 pm every day; make sure to go at least once! They serve an adorable platter of mini sized desserts along with your tea. The front desk is very helpful with scheduling tours for you. Take advantage of the free shuttle! They will give you a lift to places within about 15 minutes or so. Wish we would've known about this sooner! Helpful tip: don't leave anything outside that is valuable ever. The monkey's came down and stole our $20 sunscreen bottles in the evening hours!

This is a wonderful hotel. A dream come true for us. We had a private villa with a pool, set in a serene, lush garden. Every morning our butler, Julian, would bring an amazing breakfast to our patio and make sure our every wish was met. We would watch the monkeys parade on the wall around the pool. If we wanted our breakfast in the small cafe that was an option. Every afternoon we could enjoy tea in the cafe! I cannot tell you how exceptional the staff was. They even helped us track down an item left on an airplane. A dip in the pool was perfect after a long day hiking or bike riding. So much to do in Ubud.

I found this place since i am looking for intimate place but also easy for me to walk around ubud. And guess is above my expectation. I love every single corner in my villa. The pool just perfect. My favourite of course my daily breakfast. They really know how important is the breakfast to make the best mood for whole day....staff friendly, kind and skillfull. I will definetely come experience ever. This place is paradise on earth..

Basically WOW! Seriously can’t recommend highly enough. From the second you arrive staff and helpful and friendly. The accommodation is amazing with everything you would need. Private 10 meter pool, outdoor sitting area, large comfy bed, indoor and outdoor shower, large couples bath, double sink... and anoles of space. Breakfast and staff and top notch. I can’t see anywhere else matching Royal Kamuela for location, service and facilities. Very sad to leave!

I looooved this place! Attention was great from the first minute we landed on the airport and where picked up, (btw prepare for Bali driving... to be in a car is a extreme sport experience) The hotel was amazing, the staff was incredible and so nice!! They offer short in town drives for you to get to different places which is really practical but also it is extremely well located so you can walk to almost anywhere in Ubud! I would really recommend this hotel
