Umalas Retreat II (a) is a newly opened fully appointed 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with private pool and garden, set amongst beautiful working rice fields within the quiet village of Umalas.
Need more space? Check out our 3 bedroom villas, Umalas Retreat I and Umalas Retreat II (b). They sit side by side, and can be rented together to form up to 6 bedrooms.

small laneways, traditional housing and the Balinese going about their everyday lives. Wake to the crow of a local rooster, or if you're very lucky, enjoy the melodic sounds of chanting from a distant house of worship.
Catering to discerning groups of up to 4 persons (or 5 with a roll-away bed) and set within its own secure walled garden accessed by a private driveway and entrance, the villa consists of two unique guest suites with ensuites, a large pool, partly shaded garden and generous living space.

Let me start with saying Ms. Kay is a 1st class lady and so is her staff at the Umalas retreat! The staff at Umalas#2 assisted me in every way possible, I want to take the time again to thank Roseminne, my villa attended, she cooked, cleaned and anything I needed she made it happen for me! The property is in a residential area, so if you want to be a little off the beaten path this is the place to be! With that being said, It's a two minute ride on a scooter to the heart of Seminyak... This villa was very nice, I have traveled the world and stayed in a lot of nice places, I rank this villa near the top of the list. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for an affordable villa in Bali to stay at Umalas retreat!
Thank you so much for submitting a review.
I've passed on your kind words about Rusmini to her, and she's thrilled.
We've finished the upgrades on the villa now, check out the photos on our website; www.umalas-retreat.com. You'll hardly recognise the place.
Stay safe. Thank you for choosing to stay at Umalas Retreat.

“Another perfect holiday spot”
Left on 08/23/2014 for a stay in August 2014 | MumpmaReviewed Aug 23, 2014Stayed Aug 2014
We've previously stayed at Umalas Retreat 1, and thought we'd give this new one a go for our current trip.
It's just as good as the first.
The highlight for me once again was the food - Rosminy is a great cook.
All of the staff are to be commended, they really do do everything they can to make your stay perfect.
I cannot fault this place. Comfy beds, very quiet, lots of space.
As they say, do yourself a favour!
Thanks for visiting us again, and trying out Umalas Retreat II. We're so glad that you liked the villa, and our staff.
Your ongoing support and referrals to your friends mean a lot. Your recommendation of our villas to others really is the best compliment you can give us.
Stay safe, and visit again soon.

We've just returned from 2 weeks in Bali, staying at Umalas Retreat II. This newly opened villa is beautiful. The staff, especially Rusmini the housekeeper and cook, couldn't do enough for us.
I unfortunately fell ill during the trip and all of the staff went out their way to help. Not only did they get me to hospital quickly, but they stayed with me during my treatment, and checked up on me regularly once I was discharged.
The pool and outdoor areas in the villa are so wonderful to relax in, with plenty of space.
I was lucky enough to meet the hosts, Anthony & Kay during my stay, and they are just lovely. Very helpful and informative.
I'll be back for another stay very soon, and will be bringing my daughter with me next time.
Thanks so much,
Thanks so much for your lovely review of Umalas Retreat II. I'm glad that you enjoyed your time with us.
I hope that you're on the mend, and that you do come and visit us again soon with your family.

“Great spot, excellent pool”
Left on 08/19/2014 for a stay in July 2014 | Edward AReviewed Aug 19, 2014Stayed Jul 2014
We spent a three day break here in late July and loved the place. For me the pool is the highlight, but the staff are fantastic. We got the "opening special price" of $80/night for one bedroom, which was great value. We'd definitely be back when the three bedrooms are furnished as the owners are intending.
As long as it's not too expensive then :)
Thanks for taking a moment to let us know how we went.
All of the upgrades at Umalas Retreat II are now finished. Jump onto our website at www.umalas-retreat.com and check out the photos. You'll hardly recognise the place.
Travel safe and visit again soon,
