We recently stayed at Harvest Moon for our honeymoon after a crazy weekend in Hong Kong. Little Nyoman picked us up from the Airport and dropped us off, he was great :) (also highly recommended you go out with him for the day around the island!) We ordered food that evening which was great and cheap and delivered for a very reasonable rate.
Its easy enough to head out to get a driver from site manager Nik or the night guards and it costs about £5 return with a tip. Really beautiful villa with fantastic views. I say the next sentence tentatively and this is the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5, but the view over the rice fields is incredible but we discovered upon our arrival a large area in front of the villa with 3ft of rubble on which was a bit unsightly but to make it worse they are planning to build there :( so a heads up before you go to ask them what stage they are in with the building.
The bed was so comfy and the AC in the bottom room was a blessing (there is no AC in the top bedroom which has an open plan feeling with a vaulted roof that lets air in from outside) Bathrooms were amazing with an outside waterfall shower and outside bath. The daybed outside was so good for evening cocktails and star gazing, and the pool in the apartment was soooo good and private.
Lots of lizards and Frogs in the bedroom which we loved but maybe not for the faint hearted! Staff come for breakfast between 8-10am which was sometimes a bit early for us but they make good food, shortly after this they come for clean up, and then turn down about 5pm which i must admit was a bit overwhelming at times but you can't fault the service.
The kitchen was so well stocked and big fridge freezer to stock with food (and a cheeky beer) Ubud is a quiet place and winds down at 11 so many evenings were spent back at the villa.
If we ever came back to Ubud i would definitely consider here again but maybe in one of the other villas with a different view. I would recommend tentatively, just due to the bits mentioned above with the views as i know how good the views were and how much a new villa in front will intrude on this.

I stumbled across Harvest Moon Villa on Airbnb and am SO glad I did! We stayed there for a week at the beginning of our honeymoon- crashing out by the pool after an epic wedding weekend in the UK, overlooking the paddy fields, was just perfect. The location is fab- it's about a 10 minute ride from Ubud, so really nice and peaceful. We rented a motorbike from the owners (neither of us had ridden before, it felt safe and was one of the highlights of our trip, buzzing through the warm, aromatic air up to the town).
The house is gorgeous- the photos are accurate, but until you are there you cannot appreciate how amazing the light is. Delicious healthy breakfast made daily (the coconut syrup was a highlight with banana pancakes!), we had massages by the pool and then spent hours nipping between the pool and the hot bath, during the day and at night.
We combined this with a trip to Lombok, and if we ever returned to Ubud we would definitely stay at Harvest Moon again.
Thank you to all of the staff for such a warm welcome!
From the moment we met our driver Nyoman at the Airport to walking through the front door of this beautiful retreat we knew we had arrived in paradise.
If you have found Harvest Moon in your search for accommodation I can truly say "look no further" as you will not be disappointed. From the beautiful and happy staff to the superb location and the peace and quiet it was the place to recharge our batteries and felt like we were in our own world away from all the stress of everyday life. You can totally relax and unwind here and not have to think about anything else. And the sunsets are sensational!
Nyoman our driver was THE BEST! He took us to all the very best places and would highly recommend him to take you exploring every day. He always had a happy smile and nothing was too much trouble. Nyoman you are a treasure and we miss you.
And if you don't feel like leaving this beautiful haven make sure you call for a massage by the pool. And if you feel like dinner in we can certainly recommend the Italian restaurant for the best pizza and pasta. Our daily breakfast cooked by the lovely staff was divine! We certainly felt spoilt and would like to bring you all home with us!
The worst thing about Harvest Moon was having to leave. I cannot think of one thing I would change apart from perhaps an air conditioner in the upstairs bedroom but apart from that this place is PERFECT!
