It is outside of the main hubbub of Ubud, instead of cars and crowds of tourists you are surrounded by gardens and terraced rice patties. The villas are immaculate and so special. The indoor/outdoor living quarters and plunge pool combine comfort and luxury to make you never want to leave. There is a free shuttle bus to take you to Ubud and back throughout the day. But with a setting like Villa Semana, you might just want to stay. Things to enjoy on site: restaurant, pool, spa, creek, private tour of local village and rice patties. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on room comfort instead of 5 is that the bed was quite firm. Nevertheless, I'll be back. Loved it.

When you step into hanging gardens it's like visiting your maternal first cousins who haven't seen you in 10 years and are eagerly awaiting your arrival. Everybody and I mean everybody is amazing, everything is amazing from the moment you arrive... even the noisy gecko (whom was our neighbour). Saying that you then won't want to leave and when you do you will yearn to stay more. It's more breathtaking than the pictures, sounds as well as the sights. There are no superlatives worthy of it. However if I was to break it down, paradise wouldn't be far off and I'm sure it's the envy of every architect or humming bird that hasn't yet discovered it. There should be a patent on this place. Luxury in the forest. Thank you for a wonderful time I doubt I will ever experience such greatness again, unless I return.
Fantastic Mies Van der Rohe style pavillion villa, with beautiful private setting and pool. Staff were ready to help with everything and very pleasant indeed. Calm oasis in busy street, which made the stay a fantastic mix of tourism and pure joy.
I spent a week at The Chedi Club, Ubud. As this was my first trip to Asia and traveling alone, I really needed transportation to/from the airport. I heard horror stories of taxi experiences and that the airport was a bit hectic. My brief experience there was accurate and along came my driver who knew a lot about the area while we made the hour long trip to the resort. I felt a great sense of security with the security guard and gate at the entrance. The resort is very quiet and provides a sense that nothing else is around and yet there is a busy town right outside. The accommodations were spotless each day I was there and many items are included in the stay such as minibar, snacks, fresh organic fruit, robe, slippers, you name it. My room was the perfect size and as I lucked out with perfect weather. The bathroom was amazing, it's actually outdoors. Beautiful tub and toiletries and strong hair dryer which is rare in hotels. There is an infinity pool and because there are only 21 villas total, there was never a crowd at the pool. Fresh water is brought out with sunscreen. It really was these added touches that made the experience even better. I participated in a cooking class, almost all spa treatments, a traditional Balinese dance and dinner and even rice trekking. I loved the fact that many of the activities I wanted to do was right on property and reasonably priced. Staff is awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better place. One of the best vacations ever experienced.

"Secluded hideaway with convenient access to town"
We enjoyed the room, the garden view and the big well maintained pool very much. Upon request, they also accommodated our honeymoon occasion and presented with floral decoration on our porch and tub. We had breakfast in the villa as well as in their restaurant with the rice field view. The breakfast was good - the pancakes were nicely plated. In addition to the rice fields, the villa also had wonderful river valley view you can enjoy during your complementary afternoon tea, or if you choose to have dinner or the romantic package. The manager made sure that we were happy. We also enjoyed the easily arranged complementary shuttle to town, which opens up our meal choices and daytime tour choices. Within their grounds, they also had buggy if your walk to the lobby was too far. It was a wonderful stay and we will plan to stay here again for a great holiday.
A little far out of town, but their shuttle service is excellent. Also the grounds are quite extensive, but again their shuttle (buggy) service is excellent. Just call and they are there within 5 minutes. Beautiful natural surroundings, and excellent staff.
The pool down near the spa was amazing and well worth the experience. We also had time to embark on the nature walk which was informative and a great way to spend some time.
Overall this experience is one of the best I have had in all of my international travels.
A big thank you to the great staff who looked after us.
