“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 23 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This place was a fantastic getaway from the city, it is located amongst local villages and you can experience the real local Bali culture. It is easy to get around to different places with a driver. The food served at Jendela Di Bali was phenomenal, you can taste the freshness and sincerity put into the every meal. We highly recommend the smoked duck and smoked chicken. Mama Dayu is very kind, hard working and keeps the villa in pristine condition. The staff here are very welcoming, attentative, and kind. We will most certainly consider returning in the future!

“Magical, authentic, balinese experience.”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The location was a little bit of a drive from Ubud but if you want to be a bit remote this is the place to be. My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and the grounds were truly breathtaking. We could book a massage anytime we wanted. The level of service if 5 stars and they are very good at accomodating your needs. We were very relaxed! Thank you for letting us have a beautiful honeymoon.-Sela and Trey

“The 'Friends' who staff it should take a bow!”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a tricky property to revue, firstly I will set the record straight on a couple of things, firstly the property is at least 30 minutes away from the center of Ubud which can only be reached by hiring a car with a driver for half a day ( this is not s expensive as it sounds!) There are no local restaurants within walking distance, however there are a couple of very small local shops. Secondly this is a staffed villa,they are there from 7 in the morning till 9 in the evening with security on through the night. it is not a hotel, so don't expect that level of service - that said, after a couple of days it is more like 'Staying With Friends' If fact the staff are what makes this villa something special and they do their absolute utmost to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible, if they can do it they will, all meals are cooked for you, you select from a large menu and they serve it when you want it, you do need to give them notice for some things as everything is bought fresh if possible. All the meals are excellent and they are mindful that Western stomachs sometimes rebel against 'local' cooking methods so use bottled water for the ice cubes and washing salad etc, so no 'Bali Belly!' The villa is located right in the countryside so is surrounded by farming and locals just going about there daily business, this is the real Bali not the 'Sanitized for Tourists' bit.
The Villa is quite unique in that it comes with several different and separate buildings - slightly more compact than some of the photographs here would indicate - the pool for example is about 6m x 4m, all the grounds are beautifully kept by the on site gardener. It is probably worth remembering that he starts work early and is always around somewhere before you get lulled into a false sense of security and start walking around your sleeping block without any clothes on - as a lot of the windows do not have curtains of blinds! The pool area is very nice although shaded by trees so finding the sun can be challenging which also means the pool does not get warmed much by the sun so is somewhat refreshing! (Cold!!) As the villa is right in the country and next to a tropical forest - expect bites from bugs - normally I don't get bothered much by bites from bugs and usually only get a couple but here I was bitten over 100 times in 10 days, in part my own fault because I only started using my bug spay after about 7 days, but i would now recommend taking industrial strength bug spay and using it all the time ( i didn't!) as you are so close to natural woodland, expect visits from other creatures as well, the lizards are trying their best to reduce the bug population so don't work about them, some of the others are best referred to the staff who deal with them for you. Once you stop regarding the staff as 'Staff' you will have a lot of laughs with them, they are so keen to help, and all have great senses of humor, also remember there is no big supermarket, down the road or food deliveries to site, what ever they need they go and get themselves on the back of a motorbike.
This villa wont be for everyone, it wont appeal to the people who like to fend for themselves, or have total solitude or expect the full services you get from a hotel, it wont be right for people who are not that keen on wildlife or nature. That said if you regard it as 'Staying with Friends' where things might not be quite perfect or to your personal taste, but that's not why you go.
If you meet them half way, you will have a very enjoyable and memorable trip, you will certainly have a lot of laughs, and when the time comes to leave you - like me, will be very sorry to leave.

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I cannot praise enough the villa. Its in a small village about 30 mins from Ubud. There's no restaurants, shops etc near the villa but I personally think its much nicer place than Ubud. There are many things to see near the villa: rice fields, rafting, mt. Batur, coffee plantations, waterfall, Ubud ... We didn't have own car and only used the villa's driver every day but there were no problems. The driver was great, he showed us many things in Bali we would't have found ourselves. He got us to the villa from a hotel in Canggu and also fixed us everything we wanted to do: rafting, mt. Babur hiking and even ferry tickets to Gili.

The villa is absolutely beautiful, even more beautiful than in the pictures. There is no air con in the rooms but since its in the mountain climate, it doesn't get too hot with the fans over the beds. The best part of the villa is the greatest staff ever!

Daiyu and her staff are the most wonderful people. They were at the villa before we woke up and left when we got to bed. The food is excellent, we ate at the villa almost 3 times every day. Breakfast is served what time ever guests want. The service in the villa is like in hotel but more personal, rooms are cleaned every day, you can order drinks, snacks etc. We even got a massager two times in the meditation villa and it was great. All the villas service were very affordable.

Only minus is the wifi, not the best connection but maybe you shouldn't use internet in a place like this! :) I've been travelling quite much this was one of the greatest accommodation i've visited, can't recommend enough!

“The true Bali experience”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Jendela di Bali is a unique luxury Villa a short drive from Ubud. The owners of the Villa have a great knowledge of the accommodation industry and this is reflected in the unique location and layout. Even arriving at 2.00am was not an issue airport transfers were very smooth. The Villa is in a picturesque tropical location with a bonus gorge and waterfall and was very comfortable for our extended family of 6 including teenagers. Central to so many historic sites some highlights were, Mt Batur volcano, Tirta Empul sacred water temple and a traditional dance performance and dinner. Ubud provided arts and crafts shopping and we did a family jewellery making class which was really well worth it for our own souvenirs. There were so many restaurants and galleries as well.
The Villa's offer unique accommodation and the White Elephant was our favourite. The Grounds are immaculately kept and the Staff are very good with English and are most obliging. Dayu Made and Sueartini go out of their way to make your stay the most pleasant experience and can arrange anything you need for lunches dinner or transport even some beer. Our meals at the Villa were often better than the restaurant experiences. We even did our own low key BBQ on the Villa's Webber Q with the kitchen assisting with the marinades and desert. Being invited by the staff to their homes and to a family religious ceremony was special and a true privilege. Plenty to do and keep yourself entertained or take a little time out to relax. Ideal for couples travelling together or a family such as ours.
