My husband and I had multiple recent occasions to celebrate and wanted a trip away from our little darlings. I found sticky rice online and seem to meet our need to have a restful break away. With Covid restrictions in place and finding somewhere to stay with an on-site restaurant was tough. Sticky rice was perfect we took advantage of a package where you create a three course meal and a night in a villa. My husband and I are not the best cooks so I was a little worried but the staff and Yuki put us at ease from the beginning. Somehow we made a tasty lunch with lots of laughs. The villa was very clean and was perfect. It was romantic, secluded and intimate. We had brought some food with us so we did not need the villa. It was a restful evening and night and gave my husband and I quality time together. We would really recommend sticky rice for a great and different break away and close to Adelaide CBD. The staff were relaxed and caring. Yuki was knowledgeable and adapted the recipe for my dislike of very spicy food. The villa was comfortable and well equipped.

We could not have asked for a better experience. We had a private cooking class during the day with Chef Yukkiko. This was perfect, Yuki was fun, patient and so knowledgable. The food we made was amazing, and the experience of cooking and dining was indulgent. We have already recreated one of the recipes. We then stayed the night in Villa Yoko. The villa was incredible, better than the photos and very romantic. Overall we found the staff to be incredibly amazing and thoughtful, they went above and beyond to create an incredible experience and it was worth every cent. I do hope we come back one day soon.

After coming across the Sticky Rice Villas and cooking classes on google I decided it would be the perfect location to propose to my partner who loves travel and cooking. I booked the Bali Villa and it felt just like we were in a 5 star Villa in Bali, it was simply stunning and very well equipped! It even surpassed the photos on their websites! Once you’re in the Villa you also can’t tell that there are any other Villa’s around, you feel completely secluded. We then did the Thai Feast cooking class and we learned to cook 4 amazing dishes. The class is very social as we worked in groups of 4 to prepare the dishes. We then had a big group dinner with the other class attendees, and there was more food and wine than we could all finish. While this was going on, the team at Sticky Rice had snuck into my room (as I requested) to set up rose petals in a “Will you marry me?” Quote on the bed, and when we got back to the room it was laid out even better than I imagined, they had even lit multiple candles to add to the atmosphere, it was just perfect! And she said yes of course! Thank you so much to the team at Sticky Rice, I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

We spent a delightful 2 days at Sticky Rice Villas after a trip on The Ghan, The villa is divinely spacious and fabulously decorated. We chose Yoko, which has a Japanese theme. The highlight was the bath overlooking the garden with a beautiful statue, which when lit up at night, looks magical. The kitchen is very sophisticated and well equipped We were able to cook up a delicious dinner with our lunch left overs from our private cooking lesson earlier in the day. The cooking lesson was the best fun ever. Thank you to Yukiko for her brilliant cooking and menu. Claire the hostess is charming and incredibly hospitable. We loved our time at Sticky Rice!!!!

Stayed there and had a private Vietnamese Cooking Lesson one night. Drove up and next to an electrical substation and near a major highway so was slightly disappointed initially. However the private villas were lovely, well equipped and really quiet and the owner is a hoot and so friendly and helpful. We had a lovely stay and Adelaide Hills is an amazing area. Cooking experience was excellent - certainly recommend it
