“Ideal place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed at the Agung Khalia (villa 1) with my partner, his brother and sister-in-law in August - it was amazing. The service from beginning to end was impeccable. We were given a mobile phone on arrival to call for anything we wanted. From bringing more drinks to the villa, ordering dinner, a massage or a trip out.

My boyfriend and his brother went on a trip down a local volcano organised by Guru which they enjoyed a lot.

The villa itself was spotless and worth every penny, the bedrooms were comfortable, but the real jewel in the crown is the outside pool area and the lounge.

It's about a 10 minute car journey into Ubud town centre, which isn't an issue unless you want wild nights out. The villa is so peaceful (with the exception of the ducks in the surrounding paddy fields!) and really was the easiest place to relax in the world.

If travelling on your own you'd feel completely looked after and safe at the Agung Khalia, one of our group is planning when to come back!

“paradise”
Reviewed 1 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

What can i say about Villa Aghung Khalia, its paradise. My friends and i after our research on TA booked Villa 1 .very easily online with Laura. From the moment we arrived we loved everything about it, although we had a bit of a wait at the airport to be picked up it was all explained and all was good.
We were welcomed with a cold drink, and from then on the staff could not do enough for us. It made such a difference to our stay. They would bring our breakfast by the pool every morning and ask about our plans for the day. Everything was arranged for us, excursions for the day and transport to and from any restaurant of our choice at night.
The rooms were all cleaned perfectly every morning and our washing done for a small charge.Our only regret was we only stayed for 7 days, wished we had booked for longer, but we all decided we will be back.

“Spacious villa in beautiful rice paddies.”
Reviewed 24 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We had a lovely stay at the villa. It is very spacious, and could easily accommodate seven people. The service was very good and the owners have thought about many details, such as providing a loaner laptop computer and a cell phone so that you can call the Villa for pick-ups in Ubud. The shuttle service is well manned and we never needed to wait to go into Ubud., although pick up in Ubud depends on traffic volume but did not cause us any difficulties. One thing that is somewhat annoying is that the doors are very heavy, and will loudly slam shut if not left propped open. A lovely place to go to after the busyness of Ubud.

“Agung Khalia was excellent”

I feel like I don't want to recommend Agung Khalia ... I want to keep it to myself and not tell anyone about it. However, that would be unfair to the owner, who has built magnificent villas and employed some great local people. It would be unfair to Agung who took us on a walk through the rice paddies and let our kids play with his chickens. It would be unfair to the staff who took us to a largely balinese-only night market for a great meal of babi guling (roast suckling pig). It would not be fair to our friendly drivers like Ketut, and staff like Dewi and Nyoman who made our stay so nice. Or our gardener who came to hand-cut our beautifully manicured lawn with a sickle each day.

The villas are a lot bigger than they look, and the tropical gardens are beautifully manicured. The villas are situated in the middle of lush green rice paddies, only a short drive from Ubud. Drivers are on hand to take you into Ubud and pick you up whenever you want.

Agung Khalia is not a 5-star hotel, but it is a beautiful tropical villa set in loveley landscaped tropical gradens, with a beautiful pool.

The people are beautiful, the villas are superb, the location is great and the value for money is fantastic. Enjoy your stay!

“Could not have wished for better”
Reviewed 12 August 2011 for a stay in June 2011

After much searching on the internet, we chose Villa Agung Khalia as the place to stay for a family celebration. We hired Villas 2 and 3 as we needed six bedrooms, and the pool separating the two was reserved for our use.
Laura, who handled all the reservation details, was incredibly patient as we changed our booking back and forth due to different members of our group altering plans and vacillating. She was always friendly and helpful!
On arrival, we were met at the airport by staff drivers in two vehicles for the trip to Ubud. They organised all the luggage for us and produced bottles of cold water for us to drink, which were very welcome as we were acclimatising to the heat from a much colder Australia.
On the trip to Ubud our driver was very helpful, answering our questions along the way and making us feel safe in the somewhat chaotic traffic!
Arriving at the villa we were greeted by the manager and other staff members and shown to our villas, where more cold drinks awaited us. The villas themselves were amazing, surrounded by lush gardens within the walls and rice paddies outside. Two stories high, the master suite, living/dining room and kitchen were downstairs and two more suites upstairs with a large sitting area and balconies. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and fans. The master suite had an airconditioner which could be turned on for an additional cost, but we found the fans were more than sufficient to both keep us cool and discourage the mosquitoes.
The rooms were all comfortably furnished and spotless. Staff cleaned thoroughly every day and laundry could be arranged for a small fee. Masseuses could also be arranged to attend personally at the bales in the garden, of which there are several.
Breakfast (included in the tariff) was served in an outdoor dining area overlooking the rice paddies at the far side of the complex, just off Villa 3. Choices were good as was the food itself, and coffee, tea and juice constantly available. If we preferred, breakfast could have been served at our patio tables by the pool, as was lunch and snacks. When some in our group were leaving at 3am for a volcano climb, the staff came a little earlier with coffee and toasted sandwiches, above and beyond IMO :-)
We also had a couple of dinners at the villa, which we enjoyed.
Transport was available all day until 10pm at no cost to shuttle us in and out of Ubud itself, and we were given a pre-programmed mobile phone to call the villa for pickup when we were ready to come back. For a small fee we could have stayed out after 10pm but we were ready to come back by then as we had a baby in our group. Longer trips and tours could be arranged with the staff for a fee depending on distance.
The staff really made our holiday fabulous, the villa itself was great but the staff were all so friendly and obliging, nothing was too much trouble. During meals if baby was fidgetty one or another staff member would smilingly cuddle him and take him for a walk around the gardens so his parents could enjoy their dinner in peace. If we suddenly wanted coffee or a snack, we had but to ask. They also helped with restaurant reservations and recommendations. If only staff here at home were half as good :-)
We were very sorry to leave at the end of our time in Villa Agung Khalia, and hope very much to return. Fellow guests in Villa 1 have stayed there several times, I can totally understand why. It was so restful and relaxing there.
