Value
Villa Kalisat Boutique Hotel in Ubud is a hidden jewel situated high on a hillside cliff overlooking rainforest, rice fields, and the free-flowing Petanu River gorge 80 meters below. Each of the 7 exclusive suites and rooms at Villa Kalisat maximise the amazing views and the whole hotel is designed to guarantee a relaxing and very private holiday stay. Villa Kalisat is hidden away from the road that winds up the hill through the rice paddy fields to the Pejeng village. It's just 5km and a 10 minute drive to the central Ubud Market and the shopping, restaurant and art galleries of the town. Access to Villa Kalisat is through a working Balinese family compound situated next to the main temple in the village. Once you walk the 40 meters through the working traditional family village you are greeted with your very stylish boutique hotel, with it's beautiful gardens and the stunning views that are on offer from the rooms and swimming pool sun decks all year round. They say that when it comes to a holiday in Bali the most important consideration for a hotel is: "Location. Location. Location." And if it's an exclusive, relaxing and picturesque holiday close to nature in "The Real Bali" that you are looking for - with views second to none - Villa Kalisat is the perfect choice. In addition to breathtaking views, Villa Kalisat offers 2 swimming pools, private terraces, quality furnishings, sun decks and bale pavilions around the pools, free WiFi, a quality and fully trained spa, transport services (surcharge), airport pick-up (surcharge) plus much more. Quality homemade breakfasts are provided free to all guests as part of the daily room rate. Guests can also order lunch and dinner in Villa Kalisat's restaurant or they can enjoy their meals on their terrace or around the pools. Local specialities and Western food are available. There are 15 trained staff in the Villa Kalisat family. Most of our team are local to the Pejeng village and all are ready to welcome you and ensure that your holiday here is a highly enjoyable and very memorable one. Villa Kalisat is built on a steep hillside, with views and scenery that will amaze you and will stay with you for years. However, this means that there are a couple of steep stairs that you need to climb and descend to get to your room. The hotel is, unfortunately, not for the disabled and young children need to be supervised on these stairs and around the pool and deck areas. Languages spoken at Villa Kalisat are: English, Danish, Swedish, Indonesian and French.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In our opinion, Villa Kalisat is one of the best hotels in Bali. Therefore, here is a short rating on a scale of 1-10. Service 10/10 - The staff is great. You come into a family and are accepted into it. Everyone is helpful, super friendly and just great. Location 10/10 - The hotel is located in the middle of the jungle. The view is absolutely amazing. You can't get enough of it. In addition, you are a few minutes' drive from Ubud. Food 8/10 - The food is perfect. Everything is super delicious. A little expensive by Indonesian standards. Room 10/10 - Clean. Pretty. Big. Thank you Villa Kalisat for letting us live with you!

We recently stayed at the Villa Kalisat and I can honestly say that this is one of the best stays we have ever had on our travels! From the moment we arrived and entered through the family compound, we were made to feel so at home and part of the Kalisat family. Our room, the Oriental suite, far exceeded our expectations, and we were immediately drawn to the breathtaking views of the jungle, which was complimented so beautifully by the tranquil sound of the river & waterfall below. The welcome drink was such a lovely touch and so delicious and interesting! We loved all the art, décor and gorgeous plants around the property and our children (11 and 14) loved having the pool right outside our room. The spa treatments were fabulous, the duck and chilly chicken was to die for and the staff were so accommodating in helping us organise tours and transfers to and from the airport / other hotels. Thank you Bene, Kim, Atik and Dewa and all other staff at the Kalisat for such a wonderful stay. We will never forget Atik’s welcoming words “This is not a hotel, or a villa, but your home for the next few days”. Our only regret was not staying longer.

Just back from an all too short stay at Villa Kallisat. This place is the absolute definition of a hidden gem, a real Bali experience in an authentic boutique hotel which is also really unique. The location is surely a slice of paradise, immersed in the local village environment, with tropical jungle views to be enjoyed in a completely peaceful and tranquil environment. The team here are a delight, from the owner Bene with her personal extensive knowledge of the island and wonderful hospitality to the beautiful locals who are simply charming yet so professional. The décor throughout is so authentic, all individually curated by the owner herself from local craftspeople, each piece a work of art. The food is all locally sourced and carefully prepared by the awesome team who clearly take great pride in their hospitality here. There’s more but I must let you all discover that for yourselves. Highly recommend…..

The Villa Kalisat was perhaps the most amazing hotel experience we’ve ever had. You enter through a traditional family compound to the rear of the property to enter a beautiful rainforest sanctuary overlooking a river gorge. There are only 7 private rooms, each unique and special in their own way. There are two glorious pools and beautiful plants, buddhas, artwork everywhere around this property. Pictures don’t even show how amazing this place is. We stayed in the waterfall room which was a completely private room sitting atop a waterfall. Even with doors and windows closed and AC on, we listened to the sounds of the waterfall all night. What a hidden gem! The staff here are all connected to the family that live on premises and were very friendly, professional, and helpful. The restaurant was awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners on the terrace overlooking the river gorge. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners Kim and Bene. Don’t miss the spa if you stay here. The treatments were fabulous adding to the whole retreat experience. The only caveat we would give for staying here is the stairways. If you have trouble climbing stairs please be sure to ask for a room at the top of the villa.

Stunning location for 7 quaint rainforest villas in Ubud. Resort and villas are located on a family compound, which was unique and fascinating to share space with this family who also works at the resort. Villas are private, 2 pools, excellent restaurant overlooking the jungle, and extremely gracious, friendly staff. We were upgraded to the large suite for our 40th anniversary, which was a special treat. We slept each night to the sound of the waterfall below our villa and were greeted by monkeys, beautiful birds, and the locals. Special, Balinese experience. We'll be back!

WARNING this place does not take credit cards and it run out of beers. According to the locals the owner is too tight to have a credit card device installed ! Nice views once your there, free ride into Ubud at 10am but not back. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was pretty good too especially the black chilli chicken.

Response from Kim Shaw, Owner at Villa Kalisat
Responded 9 May 2023
Dear Chris, Thank you for your lovely comments on our staff, food and views. I'm sure this is a language translation issue as we have always taken credit cards since February 2015. Due to Indonesian banking laws on non-Indonesians we have a virtual terminal that we access online. Your credit card was declined when we tried as the message was it over your daily limit (probably a good practice safety measure from your bank to protect you). Maybe this did not translate well when we informed you. Our daily free ride into Ubud departs at 10am and returns at 3pm, but needs to be booked in the morning. Best regards, Bene and Dewa.

Waking up each morning to the sounds of a tumbling river below, looking out to the layers of tropical trees, surrounded by peace and calm. Greeted by smiling, happy staff, an amazing breakfast. It is such a beautiful way to start the day and experience the true Bali. There are only six suites, so it's like a private villa but with the services of a five star hotel. Everything you hope Bali will be and more.

Enjoyed a Spectacular Weekend Getaway at the Amazing Villa Kalisat, Ubud - Bali. If you’re looking for a top-notch sanctuary caressed by the jungles and flowing waters of Ubud, and you want to be pampered by the best local staff - trained and anchored by their meticulously caring and hospital owner-couple (from Denmark and Australia), then look no further. This top-rated sanctuary will bring you back again. And again. Untouched by the downturn of Covid - immaculately maintained, and cloaked in the familial warmth of family and friends - there is none like it. Must experience for yourself. 5 stars! My Go-To in Bali. Always. - Regional CxO (Australia & ANZ)

Villa Kalisat was a totally positive experience with a welcoming and professional staff. They arranged our airport pick-up, which was seamless - an excellent start! The Villa is beautifully situated, overlooking a wonderful rain-forest valley and rver, the rooms are really large and well appointed, and the breakfasts and other meals we had there were of high standard.. Especially helpful was Cindy and her staff - and to be commended are the arrangements made with their drivers for excursions - at reasonable cost - and in high-standard vehicles. We can thoroughly recommend Villa Kalisat - but it is NOT a "party scene" location, but a quiet beautiful Villa away from noisy crowds.....but only 10 minutes from Ubud, with its restaurants, shops and other attractions.

This place is fabulous. Great, friendly staff is there to assist your every need. The room is large and beautifully decorated, with great view on the jungle. The food at the restaurant is great (tasty breakfastincluded). Don't hesitate to take a hike down into jungle below. This is a type of accommodation that you want to linger in. It is a bit away from the town but a reliable and affordable driver can be provided on request.
