“Unique villa with authentic ambience of the balinese lifestyle.”
A very unique way to stay and experience the rice fields of the Bali country side. The ambience lets one enjoy the solitude of the traditional Balinese lifestyle. It was a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with a traditional Balinese dance by local children. We took full advantage of a massage at the villa along with enjoying the pool and outdoor living space. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. The location is a short drive away from Ubud, the cultural artistic area of Bali. My only suggestion was to have some english television channels for those rainy days but understand the owners wish to keep it a peaceful and quiet ambieince. Dvd's are available to watch. Wifi was also provided.
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely comments. What a lovely restful stay - exactly as a holiday should be. The quiet countryside really does allow for this. We look forward to hosting you again.
“Highly Recommended Villa”
We spent our last week in Bali at Villa Damee. The villa is more beautiful than the pictures suggest, and the staff are without doubt the shining star. They are always there when you need them, keep the villa meticulously clean, yet completely unobtrusive. Wayan (Manager) could not have been more kind, helpful and accommodating, she took us the local village healer and translated the reading/offering ceremony for each of us, took us to the village school and then back to her house to show us how the locals live. Nyoman looked after us each night, he makes a mean cocktail (served poolside, with a big smile) and his Balinese cooking was the best (so good in fact, we pretty much decided to stay in most nights after our first mouthful). Made/Wayan (man) looked after us in the mornings, serving breakfast/coffee, cleaning the bedrooms/bathrooms, helping to organise drivers and anything else we required. Kadek does an amazing job on the lush gardens and he took us on the river walk, which was hard work for us, lazy city dwellers (but totally worth every sweaty heart pounding second). The villa bedrooms/bathrooms are large, with massive wardrobes and clean linen. The pool is a great size, perfect start and finish (and everything in between) to the day, getting out was the only chore. Upstairs, on the yoga platform, the hammocks are a great addition and it became our favourite chill out zone, the shade, the breeze, and the view. We spent hours there, reading, napping, chatting... wish I was back there now! Stephanie's correspondence was quick, thorough from start to finish, the villa was easy to book, and Stephanie stayed in contact in the lead up to our stay. Overall, Villa Damee is more rural than we were expecting, but with all the comforts you could want away from the hustle and bustle of the cities we quickly adjusted, it is only a short 10-20 minute drive from the centre of Ubud, it is the perfect place to relax, unwind with nature and beauty all around.
Response from the owner Thank you for the lovely feedback. Wayan and the team offer fantastic personal service. I am glad you got to do so much during your time in Bali, especially the local stuff in the village. Memories to keep forever. Its a beautiful place and I am happy you got so much out of your holiday in Ubud staying with us at Villa Damee.
““Lovely Villa with charming staff””
Getting through Immigration, at Bali's new airport was fairly quick and easy despite the long queues of people at the VOa counters and passport counters. It was lovely to be met and taken to Villa Damee. Despite the lateness of the hour, Wayan, the manager and Nyoman, the night guard were waiting to welcome us. The rooms at the ground floor are very spacious and well furnished. The 3rd bedroom on the upper level has views over the paddy fields but strangely no bathroom. The only access to a bathroom was via one of the downstairs bedrooms, or at the other side of the pool near the kitchen. As we were traveling with extended family, this was a disadvantage for us . The ensuite in the master bedroom although lovely is actually outdoors in a small private garden. The girls instantlly decided that this wasn't for them and rushed to the more conventional room. I must say that sitting on the throne staring out at the stars takes a bit of getting used to but it is not overlooked and is sheltered from the morning sun by some trees. It could do with a blind over the bathroom door, with young kids and teenagers around and the sliding doors not a hindrance since you can slide it either way to open even if locked!The pool is great after a day of sight seeing! As we were late arriving, the normal Balinese welcome dance was postponed to a more suitable time. I wish I'd known how good the performance was going to be as I would have been better prepared to take some decent photos. The girls had put in a lot of effort to get into their costumes and it was a really an excellent performance.The staff headed by Wayan were helpful and charming and kept the villa lovely and clean. Not used to country living, our girls had a fright to find a big gecko in their bedroom one night! But Nyoman came to the rescue! A bit off the beaten path in a traditional Balinese village but only 10 minutes or so by car into Ubud town. We love Ubud and would come again.
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review. Thank you for the feedback on the glass door into the bathroom. We have ordered a blind and it will be installed next week. Excellent suggestion. Now you are back home, you may have a few laughs over the gecko that visited the girls room. Nyoman was the brave forest warrior and removed - bravo. Nature really is all around you at the villa and sometimes hops over the fence! We also value your feedback on the 3 rd bathroom. The villa does have 3 showers and 3 toilets, but the upstairs room does not have en-suite and we are now investigating to install a 4th shower/en-suite. Thank you for your suggestion. We are always seeking to improve our guests stay. Good idea about the camera warning too. The Balinese dance is mesmirising. The girls are excellent dancers. I will let Wayan know to tell our next guests - go get your "good" camera . The beauty of this performance, in your private villa, your private space allows for good shots indeed. We are so happy to offer this when we can. The girls are in school, so can only dance for our villa guests, when the time allows. It is our little surprise. Glad you liked it. We will see you next time you are in Bali.
When u arrived I was greeted by a traditional Bali dance. The hospitality was beyond anything that I had expected the staff were very generous with their time and knowledge. It was incredibly peaceful just what I needed.
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed the genuine, heart-felt Balinese service. The villa is indeed peaceful and we hope to see you back again at Villa Damee again. Stephanie, Owner
From the moment I arrived at Villa Damee, we were blessed with an exceptional experience. When we arrived, we were greeted by some amazingly talented young Balinese dancers who welcomed us with a captivating performance. We felt so special. The villa is absolutely gorgeous, and the staff couldn't do enough for us. They were so sweet and helpful, and gave us wonderful advice about some really special local attractions, and arranged an incredible tour for us.
Response from the owner So pleased to hear you had a fantastic time at Villa Damee. We look forward to hosting you again, next time you come to Bali.
“The most relaxing and wonderful holiday I have had”
Wayan and her staff, looked after us from the moment we arrived until we bid them a sad farewell. They treated as part of their family, and introduced us to their local village life. The elevated Yoga area overlooking rice paddies in all directions was such a treat to use early in the morning with the sun coming up. The accomodation has three large bedrooms, so three couples can stay comfortably. Klusu is just outside Pejeng, a 10 minute car or scooter trip to Ubuds main shopping area. But as time went on we were perfectly comfortable to stay at the Villa. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and Nyoman is a fantastic cook. All in all, one of the best stays I have had anywhere. The only negative? I got a fright when a Gecko was barking one morning. But when I found that they don't bite, but live on mossies, I was pleased to have that one around
Response from the owner So happy to hear you enjoyed the yoga and meditation platform upstairs and immersed yourself in local village life. It is alot of fun to get around and about on the motor scooter every day - life at 20km is pretty chilled and there is lots of exploring on the quiet back roads. See you again soon. Stephanie
“Beautiful villa with lovely garden and pool and great caring sta”
Beautiful villa in peaceful surroundings. Lovely kind staff and an abundance of space to relax and unwind. Perfect for families, couples or groups. Highly recommend to stay here!
Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed all the spacious hang out areas. We have 2 hammocks now on the yoga platform upstairs, facing the river. Its a big hit. Thanks for your lovely review.
“It felt like a homestay with an extended Balinese family - a gre”
We would highly recommend this experience to families. We have 3 children aged 10, 12 and 14 which were perfect ages to get invovled in the daily life of the village and some of its people. Fishing with Wayan (Jnr) and Kadek at the local river was a real local experience for our son, our daughters were intrigued by the mesmerising Legong dance performance by Ibu Wayan's daughter Olek, talking to Ibu Wayan about her family and life in Bali was higly informative, walking up the river to the ancient temple with Nyoman was unique and the relaxation among the rice paddies watching the local routines was educational. An all round experience - higly recommended. We will be back!
Response from the owner Hi, I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed the fishing in the local river with our lovely staff and you discovered the hidden temple in the rock too. That walk up the river is really magical and very memorable. So glad you got to experience this very local village experience. We will see you next time you are back .... maybe you can try cycling on the quiet roads next time. Thanks for your feedback.
“Perfect stay in Ubud”
We had the most lovely stay, the villa was spectacular, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the location was great.
Response from the owner Great to hear you enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the villa and the great location - close enough to Ubud but in the peace of the countryside. Our staff are a real joy - they offer a gracious service. Thank you for your review.
“Great villa experience”
Our family had a great time here, thanks to helpful and friendly staff. We will come back again.
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed the attentive staff and the atmosphere and peaceful vibe of Villa Damee. Wayan is still talking about that special Balinese meal/feast she made for your family in the villa. It was quite a spread. See you next time.
