I stayed in cottage #1 by myself for 7 nights and was continuously amazed by the first class services provided. Punia, Kadek, Arik and the rest of the crew were superb. Chandra is by far the best masseuse on the island! The room was always kept clean, breakfasts were always fresh and delicious, and the pool with the rice field view was beautiful and relaxing. I even did some night swimming where the stars were gorgeous because the cottage is outside of the big city. If I ever needed help with anything they were there within 2 minutes! I also oredered some dinners if I came home late from a day tour which were awesome! (Duck, fried rice, noodles, and more) I was able to set up a few day tours around Bali with the owner, Pania at a cheaper price than the in-town tour companies. Pania took me everywhere in his new SUV and always helped me take photos as I was vacationing alone. Pania is very knowledgeable with Bali and knows all the hot spots. They will also give you a local cell phone to call them if you need to be picked up in town or wherever. Arik will drop whatever he is doing and be there as fast as possible. I had a problem with my credit card (got locked because I forgot to tell the bank I was going to Bali) so I called Arik and he came instantly and let me make an international call with his personal cell phone! I felt like a first class king everywhere I went with this crew. Overall, the best part was the service. I was very happy I decided to stay at Alam Dania Cottage. It couldn't have been better! I have stayed at 5 star all inclusive resorts before, and they don't compare to the on-the-spot service you get here. "Arrive as friends, leave as family." Thanks guys, keep up the great at work! You made my vacation the best vacation ever!! I will definitely stay here again next time I come to Bali! :)
Absolutely fantastic! Loved every minute of my stay. Punia and family made my stay comfortable, relaxing and fun! I stayed in villa 3 (with balcony overlooking rice paddies and river) and it was beautiful! My room was just like the pictures, lovely and clean. The bathroom had a partially open roof and a fantastic shower (& a bath). The pool was awesome to cool off in each day with the same amazing view as my room. Breakfast was great, I had the Nasi goreng with fruit plate, mixed juice and coffee each day. And the dinners I had there were also tasty, with the special last dinner of smoked duck fantastic.
Punia arranged activities for us when we wanted. With him organising and driving us to white water rafting, a fun day up north and a half day of nearby temples and waterfall. Loved swimming in git git waterfall and the locals' hot springs! He is really friendly and funny, we were laughing all the time! Also great that they can arrange transfer to and from the airport.
I was also given a phone to use to call Arek if I wanted to order any food, drinks, transport into or out of ubud etc which made things very convenient. They provide a drive into and pick up from ubud each day at a time convenient to you, as they are outside of the ubud town.
Also loved the insight into Balinese life that Punia, Kadek and Arek all gave through discussions and the time we spent with them. Kadek even took us to a local temple ceremony, with Arek organising for us to wear the local ceremony clothes.
I also had massages at their spa, which are usually done by Punia's sister. Fantastic massages and lovely lady.
I loved my time at Alam Dania Cottage and highly recommend staying there.
Stayed here for 5 days in early February and I'll definitely be back again!
The villas are new & modern, they're very spacious & worth every cent, I stayed in the two bedroom villa and I can't pick a fault with it, the pool is an infinity pool with perfect views.
The staff are fantastic and were more then willing to help us with every enquiry we had. A special thanks to punia who did everything for us and was a great friend aswell as helper.
The alam dania cottages is approximately a 2 minute drive from Ubud. Ubud is a perfect place to stay and is much more relaxing then the hustle and bustle of kuta. There of plenty of things to do and see but mostly to just relax and enjoy your holiday.

We (me, my 9-month old baby and my friends with one year old daughter) visited Alam Dania just few weeks ago, 9.01-27.01.15 and it was amazing. The villa itself, the pool, the breakfast ( you should ask Arikś banana-pancakes ;)), the service and etc were all top of the top.
The village and the surrounding were most nicest in the nearby area. We were welcomed as family. Wa stayed at villa 2, which had two bedrooms and an open kitchen-livingroom. Everything was very clean and neat, our hosts were the friendliest people. I have no complaints over nothing.
And also, if you are already there you should visit the Bintang Cafe and Sari Organic Farm/ Restaurant nearby ;)
From Sandra and Jete With Love to Punia and your beautiful women, grandfather & grandmother, Arik and your wife, Poolboys and Oding the taxidriver :P
Hope we´ll see you again!
