“What an oasis!!”
What an absolute oasis for two couples without the kids for a week. From first to last email with Sally - everything was so smooth and organized. The villa is just such a relaxing oasis located down a winding track that gives you a great opportunity to be greeted by friendly locals and enjoy their wide smiles. Putu is the icing on the cake. A wonderfully gentle man with a beautiful family. Happy to organize anything from Bintang to massages. Arriving hone each night to find the villa cleaned and offerings left by Putu was fantastic. The pool is just the best way to start or end the day. Bazuki the driver is the safest the four of us have encountered during our travels across asia. Let him take you to secluded beaches or for lunch at stunning rice terraces or for dinner at jimbarun bay. The small shop at the top of the path is owned by the wonderful Ratna. She will happily arrange laundry and has the coldest Bintang around. All served with the local wide smile. Thanks again Sally we will definitely be back.
Response from the owner Thank you so much Peter for a true and fair review. Putu is the icing on the cake, he loves his job and really enjoys the guests that stay @ Villa Intui. I will pass on your comments on to both Putu and Basuki We will defiantly make sure we have a cold Bintang ready for you on your return to Bali. Thanks Sally
My 3 girlfriends and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Villa Intui. Prior to arriving in Bali, we had been on a trek in northern Thailand, bathing in muddy rivers and sleeping on mats in bamboo huts, so the beauty, tranquility and comfort of Villa Intui was the perfect way to end our trip. We were greeted at the airport by Basuki who, during our stay, also drove us to Mt. Batur for a sunrise hike (pick-up at 3am!) followed by a tour of a coffee plantation and stops and a couple of beautiful temples. He also organized a trip to a hidden white sand beach for a day of basking in the sun and swimming in the waters of the Indian Ocean. Despite the narrow roads and busy traffic, we always felt safe with Basuki behind the wheel. He never tired of our endless questions about life in Bali and kept us entertained with his quiet sense of humor. The villa itself is tucked away amongst the rice fields about a 10 minute walk beyond the main road. Don't let this sway you. Putu, the villa manager, was there to greet us when we arrived and carried our luggage to the villa via his scooter (a lot between the four of us!) The path itself was one of my favorite parts. We were able to stop and talk with the locals as we traveled to and from the villa. I already miss their smiles, warm greetings and daily conversations. The villa is spotless, well-furnished, comfortable and so peaceful. The pool is amazing, clean and so refreshing after a day of bustling about in Ubud. Putu took great pride in making sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. He had coffee, tea and fresh fruit waiting for us on our arrival. His daily conversations of Balinese life and culture were a highlight. We looked forward to his daily visits and hoped we didn't take too much time away from what he needed to do! Thank you to Sally, Putu and Basuki for making our first trip to Bali such a memorable experience. Because of your kindness and hospitality, we will all be back!
“Felt like home.”
Sally love your beautiful home in Bali thank you for sharing it. Have stayed in many villas in Ubud and would have to say villa Intui is my favorite,would love to return one day. Miss my daily talks with Putu he is such a pleasure to spent time with and loved that he would come every day to do offerings,Putu takes such pride in looking after your villa and always happy when his working. Most days we had Balinese friends come and they all felt very comfortable at villa Intui. You have the best pool in Ubud,have never been able to swim first thing in the morning but did most mornings. As you know last year was a sad time for me in Bali,was so nice to return and enjoy time with our friends in your villa. Suksma Sally.
Response from the owner Dear Tania, Thanks so much for a lovely review. We were thrilled to share our home with you and happy that your Balinese friends felt comfortable at our place. Looking forward to meeting with you sometime. Sally and Simon
“Our little oasis amongst the rice fields”
A little paradise in Penestanan, only an easy 20min stroll into Ubud. We loved it so much that we extended out stay from 7-10 days. My kids(10&7) had an absolute ball. They enjoyed swimming, building cubby houses on the 2 decks, catching tadpoles, spotting fireflies in the rice fields, reading/playing their ipods on the daybeds, visiting the local Hindu temple during a ceremony, calling out 'Pagi' or 'Apa Kabar?' to all the friendly locals or 'Jalan-jalan'(just walking) to the many taxi drivers who wanted to give us a lift, watching Putu make his daily offerings, zooming around Ubud on the back of Putu's scooter (their highlight was riding thro the Monkey Forest). I loved my own little yoga retreat on the top deck. The beds were very comfy altho their was no internal access to the bedrooms (1 up,1 down) & the kids got a bit scared sleeping on their own, so there was alot of bed and daybed hopping. Villa very well equipped, very clean & nice Balinese furnishings. Beautiful tropical garden, good size pool (no pool fence, so not recommended for wee ones to stay here), very private. Sally made it easy from the start to book our stay & always responded to my many ?'s promptly. Gentle Putu was awesome, the kids adored him (Taj just wanted to hangout with his lovely family in the kite shop all day), he always went out of his way to please us. Thank u Bazuki for driving safely down the potholed, narrow, rickety bamboo bridge, cliff hugging amed Coast. Excellent, v.cheap laundry mat down the pathway. Nice, cheap warung next door to laundry. A few local rest/cafe & 100's in Ubud. Our faves-Naughty Nuri's, Ibu Oka, Casa Luna, Dirty Duck (our splurge on Smoked Duck) & lots of Warungs tucked away down alleyways. Bintang Supermarket $3-4 taxi ride, good for last min. souvenirs or when you're tired of haggling prices at local market (sometimes cheaper or I am not so good at bartering!). I highly recommend Villa Intui & will definitely return, hopefully very soon.
Response from the owner Thanks Funky Farleys for your Fantastic Review Sounds like you had a wonderful time, Come again soon Sally
We had such a great time at Villa Intui last time - we just had to come back. Basuki the driver was waiting for us at the airport and whisked us away for the trip to Ubud. The villa feels like a home from home and we felt relaxed and comfortable from the first minute we got there. All the amenities are great, everything works and of course there's that amazing infinity pool.Putu the villa manager looked after us so well - he even arranged a motorbike for us from the second day. Nothing is too much problem to Putu ! Thanks again - we'll be back !
Response from the owner Thanks for your review Brian Good to have you guys back for a 2nd stay @ Villa Intui. Will pass on your thanks to Putu Cheers, Sally
“Charming,Balinese style, comfortable villa, with stunning views”
A very sweet Villa tucked away down a quiet pedestrian path, among the rice paddies. On arrival we were met my friendly Putu, who took care of us during our stay at Intui! He settled us in on arrival& made us delicious breakfasts:) He answered all our questions and set us up for our Bali trip! The villa is very spacious, with pretty Balinese styled decor! The garden is a delight with a good size pool! It was only a 10 minute walk into town. I liked having the privacy of the villa, tucked away in the calm area but having the option to be in the hustle and bustle which was round the corner! Best of both worlds:) Would definately stay here again, highly recommend!
Response from the owner Thank you Natasha for your review. Kind Regards, Sally
“A hidden Oasis!”
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Intui, with its tropical garden, refreshing rock pool and ample lounge and living spaces to sprawl out and relax in. A hidden Oasis; the villa is tucked away amongst the rice paddies and we enjoyed watching the local villagers go about their daily tasks from one of the various day beds or balconies. Despite feeling far away from everything, the villa is walking distance to great local restaurants/ warungs around the lovely Penestanan area which is a little quieter than Ubud(check out Yellow Flower on a Sunday for a delicious Balinese buffet dinner!). It's also close to some great rice paddy walks (along the ridge behind the Tjampuhan temple and along to Sari Organic cafe) and it wasn't far from Ubud centre whenever we wanted a dose of action and more great restaurants - Casa Luna and Indus are favourites. I also liked being so close to Cantika spa in Penestanan - my favourite for traditional balinese massages and all natural beauty treatments! My partner loved zooming through the rice paddies on the scooter to get to the villa, but I still prefered to wander through on foot and take in the surrounding village sights and sounds - especially the ducks and children flying kites! The rooms were nicely furnished in lovely Balinese furniture, very clean and spacious - we had everything we needed and more. The rooftop deck served as my personal yoga space which was pretty special too. Putu was wonderful in making us feel settled and safe, and we enjoyed our daily chats with him about Balinese life. Admittedly, we felt a little greedy as the house is much too big for just two people - so we will definitely be coming back with friends next time. We can't fault any part of the Villa or the service we received - right from the booking stage and all during our stay. A big thanks to both Sally & Putu :)
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your review Mia Bali really is a magical place. We hope to see you back at Villa Intui sometime soon. Sally
“The Real Bali Experience”
Villa Intui is located in the middle of a rice paddy about 1km from Ubud main. Convenience store within 200 metres was very handy for us(Bintangs) & the kids ( lollies). Quiet & peaceful with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and a lovely view of the volcano in the distance. Great pool and spacious surroundings & the loop walk thru the paddies was a highlight!
Response from the owner Hi Brett, Thanks for the review, happy that you enjoyed your stay. Regards, Sally and Simon
“Villa Intui: a vacation from your vacation”
Our family of four stayed at Villa Intui for about two weeks in april/May and it was a huge factor in making our vacation a blissful experience. We've been to Ubud before (this was our 4th time) and stayed in a variety of places and this was by far the best accommodation we've ever experienced there. Having been to Bali several times before, our main focus on this trip was relaxation. The villa was perfect for that, with a great clean pool that was not too small and many areas for lounging around during the hot afternoons. It is not accessible by car (it takes a good 5-10 minutes to walk to the villa from the parking area) but that was perfect for us, as it was very quiet and private. Putu the manager was a huge help to us from the moment we arrived. He came twice daily to clean in the mornings and turn on the lights/mosquito coils in the evenings. He arranged for us to have breakfast delivered to the villa everyday and took care of having our laundry done, among many other things. He was very conscientious in assuring our comfort at all times. He was great with the kids and they loved to sit and chat with him, as did we. The village of Penestanan is a bit of a trek from Ubud. We couldn't even consider walking in to town, as I had sprained my ankle severely two days before leaving for Bali, but that was not a problem, as there is a taxi service just at the top of the little road to the villa. We were very glad that we were staying outside of town, as Ubud has become a lot more developed and crowded since the last time we were there 10 years ago. At first the walk to the villa from the parking area seemed a bit far (more so because of the ankle I'm sure), but it felt shorter every time we did it until eventually we didn't even give it a second thought. Ultimately we were glad for the walk, as we got to say hello to many of the local residents on our way in and out every day. I would highly recommend Villa Intui!
Response from the owner Dear Jane, Sorry to hear about your ankle, it would be a bit hard going as the paths in Bali arent great. Hope you get better soon. We are thrilled you had a great time with your family @ Villa Intui, we know Putu enjoyed having you stay. Take Care, Sally and Simon
“Beautiful, relaxing escape with great service”
My stayed at Villa Intui for a week in March 2012. We were four people, from ages 3 to 65. We all had a great time, and recommend it wholeheartedly. The house itself is very nice: attractive, clean, and well-appointed with everything we needed. The pool, landscaping, and multiple decks with village and paddy views are beautiful. It was such a great place that we often found ourselves torn between staying or going out. Two things to be aware of: first, Bali is lush, and with all the plants and growing things come insects. While the villa is very clean, like most houses in Bali it is not airtight, so guests need to be careful with food and need to be ok with other living things around. It's a small price for the benefits of being there. Second, the villa is outside Ubud. It's a 10-15 minute walk from the main road, and from there another 30 minute walk (or 5-10 minute taxi) to downtown Ubud. The path is a very pleasant walk and a nice way to see a bit of village life. There are two good restaurants out at the road, and more on the way into town. For us the location was good for the peace and quiet and clean air in the village... and it certainly didn't stop us from going into town when we wanted to. Sally was very helpful before and during our stay. Her local caretaker (Putu) and driver (Basuki) were great, and made a good visit really special and memorable. We cannot say enough about Putu especially - very friendly, helpful, and just a great pleasure. We hired Basuki for airport transfers and to take us around for several days, and found him friendly, helpful, and a safe and reliable driver. Putu suggested several places to visit (all good) and occasionally accompanied us, which added a lot. (They also took us to a local hospital when my mother hurt her arm, and stayed to make sure everything was clear and we were well taken care of (which we were). I can't recommend Villa Intui enough. We would stay there again, and have already recommended it to friends.
Response from the owner Dear Robert, Thank you so much for your review We hope your mother is fully recovered and look forward to having you and your family stay with us again. We will pass on your kind remarks to Putu and Basuki. Kind Regards, Sally and Simon
