We had an amazing stay here. Nyoman is a fantastic chef and we totally love everything that he made. Martabal and Sambal being my personal favorite. Made and Putri were always there to assist us with their warm smile and hospitality. The security guard who couldn't speak a word of English, but how warmly he assisted us just touched my heart. Ely, thank you for your warm gesture. I am totally touched by the kindness of the whole team. Thank you for such an amazing experience. Lots of love, God bless.

We had a wonderful time in Allamanda Villa. The place is beautiful. The staff was so attentive and service exceeded our expectations. The food was a delight, very well presented. The blessings in the morning, the coffee, disposition of everybody made us feel at home. One note to thank Ely, the property manager, for all her help. Her resourcefulness to help us book our snorkeling trip was invaluable. She always made sure everything was well executed, thank you! Fernanda, Maria, Alvaro Eduardo

Naren G, Australia, 03-Jul-2023 - 09-Jul-2023
Our family stayed at Villa Alamanda to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. We are thoroughly enjoyed our stay and especially loved all the delicious meals made by Nyoman. We are vegetarian and he was able to meet our dietary needs and exceed our expectations. The rest of the staff - Ely, Putri, Made were fantastic and very friendly. Ely was very helpful in booking us transport and providing suggestions for places of interest. The property is lovely and lush, perfect place to be when heavy rains limit our options.
Amy B, Indonesia, 26-Jun-2023 - 02-Jul-2023
We have been to many villas in Bali over the years. What we found is special about this wasn't just about the beautifully kept gardens, pool and rooms. The cook made us meals which were better than dishes in most restaurants here, the staff were attentive and yet not intrusive. I sat working on verandah and Deduk (Made) approached me to ask if he could get me some snacks and drinks. That same service level was offered from all staff throughout our stay. It rained incredibly during our first few days here and the staff made sure we had prompt transport when needed, kept us dry in front of cars and even suggested where we should go to enjoy Bali despite the heavy rain. We will be back! Highly recommended.
Paul N, United States, 21-Jun-2023 - 25-Jun-2023
We enjoyed our relaxing stay at the villa. The property provided spaces together as a family as well as spaces to enjoy alone. We thoroughly enjoyed the private pool area. The gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. A huge thank you to the chef and the staff who took excellent care of us. We loved trying new foods and having all our meals made for us! Staff were attentive to each of our requests. Thanks for sharing this amazing place with our family.
Rajeep P, United Kingdom, 31-May-2023 - 04-Jun-2023
It was lovely to be able to come back to the tank to the tranquill environment of the villa after the chaos and madness of Ubud town and the long all day sightseeing. The villa staff are amazing and we especially loved the villa grandma that blesses the villa. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly and hard-working. Beautiful people, beautiful environment. Absolutely loved seeing the daily offering done by the Villa grandma. All in all, a lovely stay with outstanding landscaping
Shannon L, Australia, 19-May-2023 - 23-May-2023

The perfect getaway to relax and reset. Isolated in the middle of nature, the property is beautiful and serene. Ely, Nyoman, Made and rest of staff were perfect. All requests were met seamlessly, while their presence was scarcely felt. Chef Nyoman's homemade meals were delicious from beginning to end, every day. Fresh fruit, coffee, local cuisine, what else can one asked for? The pool and rooms were spacious and clean. The property was splendid in every way. We had the most fantastic time and will remember this trip forever. Hwang family Taipei Taiwan, Houston and NY

No words can even describe the spectacular and amazing service during our stay at Alamanda!! Ely - so sweet and efficient. Nyoman - our very own superman who whips out the most delicious food. Plus doing all the shopping not only for food but even went the miles to shop for baju for us. Putri - ever wearing a smile attentive and don't forget to ask for her superbly refreshing H2O melon juice. Putu - unassuming and quietly diligent what a sheer delight! Made - crisp white sheets and make our rooms so clean and pleasant to sleep in. Arta & the gardeners - a big thank you for keeping the grounds and making us feel so safe.

What a privilege to stay in this beautiful house. It's very elegant and calming the garden are stunning and beautifully kept (a credit to the gardeners). The pool area is stunning with its rainforest backdrop. We had many hours of family fun there. And in the pavilion beside. Thank you to all the staff for their excellent service. They were always there if you needed them but never hovered. The food has been excellent. I will miss the lovely breakfasts. Our little family gathered here to celebrate my wife and my 50th wedding anniversary and it has been perfect. Our celebration dinner was held at Locavore restaurant in Ubud (it is a great place for a special occasion - 18 courses). My wife and I first came to Bali in 1975. When we stayed in Denpasar and came to Ubud, eating at Murni's Warung which is still there today. Ubud was a very small, quiet artist retreat. Thank you for a wonderful experience so many years later.

A lovely stay here at Villa Alamanda All the ingredients for a relaxing escape far from city noise and bustle The owners have created a hugely personal and individual home with delightful finishing an artwork. The staff, without exception are on hand for anything you might need and the food is delicious We use our two weeke stay to explore and it's worth taking trips to Flores. And experiencing life on a boat for a couple of days. Ubud is fascinating to explore More locally the walks in the village are enchanting. Here you really feel and experience culture.

Tim B, Australia, 23-Oct-2022 - 29-Oct-2022
Aloha from Maui! The Villa is lovely in every way. Even more beautiful are the people who enhance the experience. Every meal a smiling delight. A delicious grin, a peaceful and fulfilling send off to a Bali adventure or jungle sleep. The home and gardens are stunning and unique. The pool procession and pool, God is setting is difficult to leave. The property refinements occur over the years to come and we will suggest enhancement opportunity with management. What more can you say that the wildlife is not already singing about? How much more paint can you add to the mossy stone carvings? The chattering insects, the building the billowing flowers and the hints of incense swirl with the distant laughter or village children. The jungle pond, the song of frogs, a secret shower, it's all but a dream....A vivid, rich dream
CHUNG HENG K, Indonesia, 23-Sep-2022 - 25-Sep-2022

I will miss waking up in the morning to so many smiling faces, and walking around with Freja saying "hello" to everyone: she has been so happy!

Thank you for an incredible stay at Villa Alamanda. We were a group of 5 friends and felt incredibly well-looked after and the care, attention and good spirit of all the staff made this an extraordinary experience. The meals have been beyond our expectations - so well presented and made with love. Thank you once again. We hope to see you again sometimes in the future.

We will certainly recommend your villa and hospitality to all of our friends and family.
Charlotte H, United Kingdom, 05-Aug-2018 - 10-Aug-2018
We have enjoyed this beautiful piece of the earth. Your hospitality is second to none -- always smiling and nothing ever seemed too much to ask. The food was incredible and such a treat. Every meal was delicious and served beautifully. The villa and the gardens are immaculate. We love the tranquility and the wonderful ambiance. Thank you for the holiday of a life time.
The Bhaskar Family, Indonesia, 29-Jul-2018 - 05-Aug-2018

Kathy D, Australia, 07-Jul-2018 - 11-Jul-2018
Many thanks to Ely and the wonderful team in this little slice of heaven! No request was too big and was always accompanied by a smile. Dining in the villa was a real treat. The Balinese family style. Food was delightful for our two families. Finding it hard to pack our bags for the next journey. Terima kasih.

We all had the most wonderful experience during our 4 nights here. The facilities were great. What made the difference was the staff always with a smile. Nothing was impossible. Never said no to any request. Thank you all, hope to come back.
Hanson H, United Kingdom, 23-Apr-2018 - 27-Apr-2018

Ingorn A, Singapore, 19-Apr-2018 - 21-Apr-2018
Recently stayed in Villa Alamanda Bali and it was amazing. Staff was kind and helpful in every way possible. It was the best holiday we have all had in a long time, thank you all again and hope to see you all very soon.
Jane R, United States, 09-Apr-2018 - 15-Apr-2018
You have whisked us away to a tropical island Paradise! Your staff are family and Meme Dadong blessed the house and our trip. Love to all, Cheers!
Johanna J, Australia, 24-Feb-2018 - 28-Feb-2018
The team here are wonderful. The menu is great but what we were impressed with was Nyoman's ability to cook dish we wanted - clean, fresh food. The view and pool is beautiful and we could spend all day reading and watching the birds and trees. Don't be shy to ask beautiful Ely for tips, particularly where to eat.
Manutea D, Indonesia, 21-Dec-2017 - 26-Dec-2017
A huge thank you to the Alamanda team. We had an amazing moment at the villa and in Ubud. We wish you prosperity and luck in the future!
Adam L, Australia, 10-Nov-2017 - 13-Nov-2017
Thank you for having us. We all loved staying here, the food was 5 star and we wish we could stay longer. The staff all were amazing - very helpful, kind and caring. We all appreciate everything you've done!
Anthony B, Australia, 20-Oct-2017 - 24-Oct-2017
Thank you for looking after us. We love your food, we wish we could stay but we have family and you probably have a family as well. This was an absolutely amazing experience! The peace and tranquility of this place is outstanding. Staff are attentive and always happy to help. Nyoman's food is the best we have tried in Bali. Gusti our driver is a very informative, extremely friendly and very patient. Thank you so much to the staff and of course Ely for making our stay an unforgettable experience.
Cindy Lee N, Australia, 03-Oct-2017 - 06-Oct-2017
Thank you for a wonderfull stay! Our little family of four had an amazing time. Nyoman made the most delicious food and Made along with his team provided very attentive service. Villa Alamanda proved how fantastic Bali and its people truly are. PS - The in house massage by the pool is a must!
Sylvie D, Singapore, 24-Jul-2017 - 28-Jul-2017
Many thanks to the Alamanda team for a wonderful stay. The staff were very nice and helpful and the food delicious. We very much appreciated the calm and restful atmosphere of the villa. Thank you for making the stay at Alamanda such a nice and relaxing experience.
Widya A, Indonesia, 04-Jul-2017 - 08-Jul-2017
Wonderful stay. The food is wonderful, the view is spectacular, the pool.. hard to let go. Wonderful rooms and overall an unforgettable stay. Thanks to all the staff who have been ever so friendly. We'll be back!
Darren L, Singapore, 07-Jun-2017 - 11-Jun-2017
Peaceful, beautiful, elegant.. a place where flora and fauna flourish happily. Quiet, comfortable, tranquil.. a place where people can RELAX. All this let us experience a lazy and comfortable stay. The design is simple, impeccable and so so beautiful. I'd also like to thank the staff for their patient, kind and understanding hosting and care. It was simple and subtle. Thank you for the wonderful meals - especially dinner. Various plates and bowls full of different and unique dishes for the trying. It is so satisfying and unforgettable.
Hyun S, United States, 24-Jun-2016 - 29-Jun-2016
Our first trip to Bali has been truly wonderful because of our stay in the beautiful Villa Alamanda. The staff team are just perfect. They are have provided some excellent and very tasty food. The staff team have answered our every need. We have been able to enjoy the beautiful garden and a wonderful pool experience. Our stay was also complemented by Gede the recommended villa driver who shared his local knowledge of the Balinese people and their culture.
Christopher L, Singapore, 14-Jun-2016 - 19-Jun-2016
Halo! Terima kasih untuk mengurus kami selama kami tinggal. Tinggal adalah sangat menyenangkan dan saya menikmatinya banyak. Terima kasih untuk membersihkan kamar dan menjadi begitu baik untuk kita. aku sedih kita meninggalkan karena saya menyukai villa dan orang-orang di sini banyak. aku akan merindukan tempat ini. Terima kasih Pak Nyoman untuk makanan lezat dan terima kasih kepada semua orang lain yang membuat kami tinggal yang menyenangkan. saya harap bisa kembali di masa depan dan tinggal di villa ini lagi. Terima kasih dan sampai jumpa... =)
Joan E, United States, 10-Mar-2016 - 16-Mar-2016
People have often told me that when you travel it is the people you meet that you will remember rather than the places. However with Villa Alamanda I'm convinced that it will be both. The zen-like tranquility of the house combine with the utter graciousness of the staff combine into An Experience that will not be quickly forgotten. Thank you for making us feel so special.
Shu Hui C, Taiwan, 04-Jan-2016 - 08-Jan-2016
Thank you all for your amazing service. We had a great pleasant stay here. The food is awesome and beyond expectation! The best family trip ever.
Sarah M, Australia, 28-Dec-2015 - 04-Jan-2016
Thank you for Made, Nyoman, Putri and all staff for THE most amazing stay. We have had the best family holiday ever. The staff, service, rooms & surrounding are just perfect. Thank you so much. Made and staff are the kindest people who did everything they could to ensure our stay was enjoyable as it could be - and it was. You are all wonderful, may your life be blessed. PS The food was INCREDIBLE.
Jamie V, United States, 02-Oct-2015 - 06-Oct-2015
Fantastic stay! If you could bottle Heaven, this would be it.
Hilary Smith, Australia, 12-Apr-2015 - 18-Apr-2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda.The villa and the garden are beautiful. We loved the pool - the perfect place to relax after sightseeing and other activities. Apparently there is a TV room but we never needed it. While its not located in a typical Ubud padi field setting we did enjoy being in a village setting and out of the main tourist area. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, but not overly so. They made this the most relaxing family holiday we have ever had. The food was delicious.
Tiffany G, Egypt, 29-Sep-2014 - 02-Oct-2014
Villa Alamanda is a very nice property, with spacious bedrooms and the pool area is lovely. The staff is excellent and we had a very enjoyable stay there. Note that there is no attached common sitting area, and that the pool area is removed from the house itself, down a level and around the corner. It is very lovely though. The staff is wonderful and Ibu Made prepares the best food.
Sue A, Australia, 27-Sep-2014 - 29-Sep-2014
We loved staying at Villa Alamanda, everything was great. Very minor comments include one bedroom's aircon could have been a bit cooler, but it is being replaced early October and in our group we had an elderly person, so the bathrooms provided a bit of a challenge since the (lovely) showers were over deep baths with steps. We stayed as an extended family in Ubud for a wedding at another venue and Villa Alamanda was like a luxury home away from home, with all the attention and more of a resort, but we had it just to ourselves. The staff are amazing and the cook Ibu Made is incredible - the manager was really considerate and I would highly recommend this amazing place to anyone wishing for peace, quiet, attention, a wonderful pool and gardens and just an fabulous experience. Thanks very much to all.
Kim Stewart, Australia, 12-May-2014 - 15-May-2014
A fantastic start to our first time in Bali. The villa lived up to our expectations and we would highly recommend this. The staff were fantastic and very attentive. The booking agent was extremely professional and organised. Highly recommended.
Chris Pearson, Australia, 30-Mar-2014 - 05-Apr-2014
Highly recommended, peace, tranquility!
Julie Scott, Australia, 19-Mar-2014 - 25-Mar-2014
This is our second visit to Alamanda and once again we had a fantastic time. Everything about this little gem is delightful. The personal yoga classes, spa treatments and massages, the wonderful cooking, the beautifully kept grounds and above all the STAFF. Without the staff it would be just another lovely villa. We were made to feel very special and cared for. We also love the fact the villa is outside of Ubud in a working village so we can soak up the sounds and atmosphere. Cant wait for an opportunity to return..
DEBRY Alain and Claire, Australia, 15-Feb-2014 - 01-Mar-2014
Great location and outstanding service, including indonesian cooking and driving service. Our holiday has been magic.
Rouillot Michel, Singapore, 13-Dec-2013 - 19-Dec-2013
We were 8(including 2 young children) from the same family and we had a wonderful time at the villa . The service was extremely good and all the staff was very nice with all of us and we enjoyed very much all the food prepare by Ibu Made. We would definitively recommend this villa to families or friends who wants to have a nice stay in Ubud area and we will certainly try to visit again this wonderful place
Correna H, Australia, 01-Nov-2013 - 10-Nov-2013
Ibu Made and staff make this villa just the best place to stay that anyone could imagine. The location is excellent, just a few minutes drive into Ubud and sitting peacefully on the side of a hill. Very quiet, clean and relaxing place to stay. The pool is amazing and our children had a lot of fun swimming and playing in the water. Don't bother eating out as Ibu Made and her team are amazing cooks and will provide anything that you ask for. We are a group of 4 adults and 4 children and everyone's food needs were looked after. I highly recommend this villa for families.
Julie Scott, Australia, 14-Sep-2013 - 19-Sep-2013
This villa is a little gem. Lovely grounds and welcoming rooms. The staff were wonderful and made us feel very special.. Nothing was too much trouble and we had everything we could wish for.. The location was great, not far from Ubud but not too close. Ultimately we were just happy to sit by the pool and be spoilt with daily spa treatments.. Just fabulous...
Carly V, Australia, 04-Sep-2013 - 11-Sep-2013
Our stay at the villa was absolute luxury. The staff were brilliant, couldn't do enough for us, but also friendly and relaxed. They were fabulous with my 15 month old daughter Ella - the chef, Ibu Made, even watched her for a couple of hours one morning while my husband and I had massages. The food is divine. Many reviews mentioned the food and said we would not want to go out - given we had been to Bali before, and eaten out for every meal, I didn't really believe this. We ended up having dinner in more often than we went out - and the best meals we had in Bali were at the villa (and at the Bridges restaurant, where the food is excellent but pricey for Bali). The location outside of Ubud is not an issue, and the great facilities and large grounds and pool area are a real bonus. If you are in a group, I would highly recommend this villa.
Juliet M, Australia, 10-Jun-2013 - 16-Jun-2013
Great place to spend a week in beautiful Bali - within the gorgeous village of Tengulak and only 15 - 20 mins away from the great shopping and restaurants of Ubud. We really enjoyed walking around the village, visiting the local school and temples. Can't recommend highly enough - all meals top quality, all staff were amazing (thank you Made & Ibu Made). We will be back.
timothy W, Australia, 08-May-2013 - 10-May-2013
Villa Alamanda was wonderful. The setting is beautiful with a jungle backdrop. The pool area is particularly attractive and totally private. Bedrooms are tastefully presented in Balinese style and the dining area is under cover on the verandah overlooking the jungle. The staff are friendly and available when required, never intruding on your privacy. The food cooked by the chef is prepared with fresh ingredients sourced from the market daily and represented the best Indonesian food we experienced in Bali. We were a family of 7 meeting for a reunion and could not have asked for more. I would have no hesitation recommending this property for those seeking an alternative to boring generic hotels.
Cosme D, France, 04-Mar-2013 - 08-Mar-2013
an oustanding stay with great services
CA, Australia, 21-Dec-2012 - 28-Dec-2012
Villa Alamanda was great. The villa itself was beautiful, and the staff were amazing. Ibu Made's cooking was an absolute highlight of our trip to Bali.
Lori Pascoe, Philippines, 29-Sep-2012 - 02-Oct-2012
Our stay at Villa Alamanda was a memorable one. I am proud of myself for discovering this oasis, on the outskirts of Ubud. Located in the heart of pure Bali, we were able to discover the rich culture of the island first hand whilst being accommodated in a surrounding of beauty and comfort at Villa Alamanda. Attention to detail everywhere. Many, many thanks.
Jane Wager, Philippines, 23-Sep-2012 - 28-Sep-2012
We have arrived home recommending Villa Alamanda to friends, family and work mates as a great place to escape to. Nothing was too hard, we were organised without being intruded on. Everyone loved the pool for swimming and hanging out. As friends with teenagers there was privacy and communal space and we thought it was great to have a tv space that was comfortable but not prominant.
Patrick Rhedin, Sweden, 22-Feb-2012 - 25-Feb-2012
We stayed at Villa Alamando for three nights before we went to Seminyak for a week there in another house. We regret that we didn't spend moredays in Ubud and Alamanda. The house was great , the location likewise and the staff was excellent more than excellent actually, we had tears in our eyes when we had to leave.
We have nothing but good things to say about Alamanda and can recommend it to anyone who likes to visit Bali.
CE, Australia, 16-Jan-2012 - 18-Jan-2012
Really pleasant stay. Bedrooms were a great size, the air conditioning leaked in the master bedroom on the 2nd day but that was a minor thing. Bathrooms were lovely but baths were so big it would take forever to fill up given the water pressure. Would be good if there was a living space to watch TV/DVD that wasn't one of the bedrooms. The pool and surrounding area was the highlight. Stunning.
MN, Canada, 24-Dec-2011 - 31-Dec-2011
Absolutely fabulous villa, exceeding our most optimistic hopes. All the staff, including the agents, were great - welcoming, helpful and friendly. Food in particular was absolutely fantastic. All round, could not have been better.
YD, Australia, 01-Nov-2011 - 05-Nov-2011
This villa was a joy to stay in. Ibu Made and the team at the villa made our stay very special. Ask for Eddy the driver who took us everywhere we wanted. The whole staff went beyond the call of duty. We had a party at the villa during our stay and it was catered and decorated so beautifully. We would love to come back.
Faizal Kamal, Singapore, 28-Oct-2011 - 30-Oct-2011
One of the best Villa in Ubud to stay. Very charming and serene place.. I enjoy the place very much. Will be one of those beautiful memories & experience I have in bali..
RS, Australia, 01-Oct-2011 - 07-Oct-2011
We thorougly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda and were disappointed it went so quickly! We loved the look and feel of the villa and the grounds. The grounds and the pool were so beautiful, we rarely left them. One of the biggest positives was the staff. Having the same set of staff consistently meant we felt we got to know them. Their level of attention to detail and their friendly attitude made us feel pampered and welcome. And of course Ibu Made's cooking!!! I'm afraid we worked her very hard, eating in every night because her cooking was so good! We would love to go back to Villa Alamanda when we can.
Suzanne Bourke, Australia, 22-Sep-2011 - 27-Sep-2011
This villa was a fantastic holiday experience. We had room to spread out or be together as a family. Everything was spotless and the staff were exceptionally well trained and hospitable. I highly recommend this for a family mix of 8 people. We had 2 grannies, 2 babies, a teenager and 3 young parents and it was great. Edi was our driver for 10 hours per day and he was brilliant. The laundry was done daily (even ironed!!!) if we dropped clothes in the basket. It is a great rest for a mum.
DM, Germany, 20-Jul-2011 - 27-Jul-2011
villa Alamanda is à lovely villa in à beautifull surrounding. everything you need is available in the house. The very friendly and profesional staf is always there to help you. Ibu Made is a very, very good cook. She always comes with ideas for à daytrip and suggestion for an outstanding meal. As on Bali, the temperature is always nice, so therefor you do not miss the absence of an indoor livingroom as we are used to in Europe. The driver takes you everywhere you want. it is no option to take a little stroll from the villa into the neighbourhood.
We would recommend this villa to everyone!
BI, Australia, 07-Jul-2011 - 13-Jul-2011
Great Location, close to Ubud, but in the charm of the local village. Staff are fantastic. well recommended
IG, Australia, 02-Jul-2011 - 07-Jul-2011
Good villa for dry season, and staff were excellent. Pool was fantastic and days around it were well serviced. Massage service was excellent and well priced.
HD, Australia, 24-Jun-2011 - 29-Jun-2011
We were extremely pleased with the villa,grounds and facilities,although we really could not comment on the kitchen as we had no real need to go there as the staff looked after every need in that regard.In fact it was Made and her wonderful staff that made our stay so memorable.
Rod Barrett, Australia, 16-Jun-2011 - 21-Jun-2011
lovely place to stay. The cook Ida was really great. Great place to relax but pity about the goat track to get to the villa. The middle floor bathroom is very tired and the floor drainage needs to be looked but overall we had a lovely time. Rod B
