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.

This place is heaven. When you stay here you have all that you need: nature, amazing views, privacy. The room is so nice and clean, the sheets and towels smelling amazing using their own signature fragrance. All the furniture is new, the bed is very comfortable equipped with mosquitoes curtains and room temperature is perfect. Sleeping here was therapy.
The private pool is amazing and heated all the time.
Dining area by the pool is very nice, you have beautiful rice field and amazing jungle views. The breakfast is healthy and delicious and also the coffee is very good. The accommodation is closer to Ubud, it takes 10 to 15 mins to get there by car (depending on the traffic) and the cost of a taxi is around 4-5 EUR.
The people from the staff are so friendly, kind and very helpful. They treated us so warmly. We felt spoiled.
They even helped us with a lot of recommendations. They also can provide outside services, such as transportation, dinner reservations, activities.
We warmly recommend the hotel as it offered us one of the most amazing experience we have had so far in our many journeys.

The hotel was beautiful and the service was exceptional. Our stay was wonderful from start to finish. Our villa was a good size, designed well, and had a heated pool and a garden area. The resort only has 6 rooms so it is quite small and therefore feels more relaxing. Everyone was extremely accommodating to us for whatever we needed, including with food. It was our honeymoon, and they made it extra special by decorating the room and making a dessert for us. I have never experienced service as good as the way we were treated at Uma Kalai. My husband and I did many activities, and the hotel helped with some of them and did a good job arranging them for us. My husband also enjoyed the massage offered and I received a good manicure. They also were able to provide taxi services at any time. We definitely felt that we got a lot of value for the cost we were very impressed with here personalized service we received.

I highly recommend Uma Kalai for couples looking for a more intimate stay in Ubud that is surrounded by nature.

Room Tip: Pack bug spray, because their bug spray is not super effective as it is natural. Book a villa...

My husband and I have just returned from a week at Uma Kalai and I genuinely can't think of enough positive adjectives to describe the accommodation, the food, or the incredible team.

From the moment we arrived we were cocooned in an oasis of calm, and were able to fully relax knowing that we were in extremely capable hands. A WhatsApp group was set up so that we could communicate directly with the team at any time, and communication both before and during our stay was easy.

We stayed in the Bhumi (earth) Villa which has a separate living area as well as it's own pool/spa and steam room. There is plenty of storage space, the bed is extremely comfortable and the ensuite is huge!

One important note: Their bottled water was perfectly safe to drink :-)

There is no photoshop involved in the website images ... the location really is that beautiful. The service is immaculate and the whole team is cheerful, friendly and accommodating.

Special shout out to Eka & Nana (for their extraordinary coordination skills), Dedi & Rana (for their exceptional skills at navigating traffic and knowing all the shortcuts), Dicky and Ade (for their first class service of absolutely everything), Gusti & Tu De (for their superlative culinary skills in both both Western and local dishes), and Nonik and Yuni (the angels in the spa who seem to make time stand still in the absolute best way possible). The housekeeping team and groundskeepers and everyone else not specifically mentioned here all work incredibly hard to maintain the location - it really is paradise.

We will definitely be back!

I recently stayed at Uma Kalai and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. We wereblown away by the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. The steam and bathtub in the room were a lovely added bonus, and the private pool was the icing on the cake. The nespresso machine in the room was also a nice touch.

The views from the hotel are absolutely breathtaking - overlooking the rice fields was such a tranquil experience. The team at Uma Kalai were incredibly friendly and helpful. They paid a lot of attention to detail and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. They even gave us a list of recommendations for things to do (eg. Bali swing, quad biking and restaurants) in the area which we found very helpful.

The restaurant menu was also delicious - being a vegetarian, I found it easy to eat off their menu and was impressed by the variety of options available. The Spa also had a variety of treatments. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, beautiful and relaxing stay in Bali.

Uma Kalai was beyond anything we have ever experienced. Aside from the amazing location and the luxurious villas with the high quality food, the Uma Kalai team took our experience to a whole new level. From the minute we stepped in to the lobby we were extremely well taken care of up to the tiniest detail of our everyday! With the service of Dicky in the morning and Gusti in the afternoon and Puspita overlooking our stay the whole time the 6 days we were at Uma Kalai could not be topped during our stay in Bali. Thank you so much to you all!

This is one of those resorts that you want everybody to know about and visit because it's THAT WONDERFUL (but you also want to kind of keep it all to yourself because it's that special). We loved each and every moment at this resort. The villas are stunning and the property is beautiful. We felt so spoiled and pampered as every part of the stay is so detailed and thoughtful. We loved our meals, messages (the spa is so pretty), our yoga class (our yoga instructor was an amazing man!), the gym, the pool area, our driver - everything. And a special hello to Dicky, Gusti and Eka who are all so kind and helpful. There is not one thing I would have changed about our stay - it was just perfect. We even changed plans to stay one more night because we just didn't want to leave! I highly and enthusiastically recommend this resort to anybody visiting Bali and I can't wait to go back one day soon!

Our honeymoon stay at Uma Kalai was so amazing, the fact that it is so hidden and secluded makes it feel that much more special :) The house of arts was an absolute paradise! The design of each private villa and room was so unique, and the dining room is so tranquil, perfect for board games and beer or lovely dinner out on the deck. You have a stunning view from the deck and at night you can listen to the amazing nature Ubud has to offer. Very close to shopping, restaurants and tours. Overall our experience at Uma Kalai was so perfect, more than we could ever wish for because of the Incredible team Agung, Eka, Gusti, and Dirga. They looked after us so well!!! And were so genuine with us, they took care of everything and anything from booking us tours and transport to late night takeouts to getting our small requests sent to the resort so we didn't have to go out. We cannot thank them enough and will definitely be staying here again when we come back. Please book your next accomodation here if you're planning to stay in Ubud you will not regret it!!! 5+++++ stars WE LOVE UMA KALAI!

Uma Kalai has been the best hotel we have ever stayed at. From the service, to the rooms, to the amenities, everything is truly 10 out of 5 stars. We don’t have a single complaint.

The service is unbeatable. The staff here are some of the nicest people we have ever met and are willing to do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Special thanks to Gusti who helped us with finding activities to do, and Rana who picked us up from the airport! They even added us into a group chat with a bunch of staff members and we amazingly attentive and quick to respond to any of our needs.

We stayed in the Bhumi (Earth) Villa and it was truly amazing. The villa has amazing features, including a heated private pool, kitchen, and luxurious en suite bathroom with a built in steam room. From what I’ve seen as well, all of the villas are unique but all have amazing features.

Outside of the room, the hotel’s amenities are truly top tier. We had an amazing Balinese massage by Yuni and Sambo in their Spa area, and they also offer a plethora of other spa treatments. Their on-site restaurant also offers a variety of both western and Indonesian dishes which are both amazing. The public pool and lounge area is to die for, with an amazing view and great pool. The small size of the resort makes this a very relaxing and romantic place to stay, great for couples.

Overall, we had a truly unforgettable experience here at Uma Kalai. We will definitely be coming back here the next time we are in Bali!

A boutique luxury resort with exceptional villas and breathtaking views complemented by a team of amazing staff! The villas are incredible with a heated pool and having your own private steam room is one of the best amenities of facilities i have ever experienced. The views were fantastic for breakfast and we managed to catch a magnificent sunset as well.
The staff, particularly Eka and Gusti took care of us really well and prepared amazing cocktails for us as well.

There could have been a few more snack and food options. But the town centre isn't too far, and the management team shared some really good recommendations with us to dine out.

Uma Kalai has been the sanctuary we were looking for. Tucked away in Ubud overlooking jungle and rice fields awaits a private haven where nothing is too much trouble and you are treated like family. 6 star treatment . Aside from beautiful luxurious accommodation and delicious food, the staff are there to assist with anything. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with heartfelt pleasure. From the beautiful manager Eka to the amazing butler service provided by Gusti and Diki you can relax and they will handle everything! Nothing is impossible and they are only too happy to help. Their smiles are infectious 😊 I will say the massage from Nonni was the best ever. Puti provided further smiles and customer service and all in all it was a wonderful stay. It is very private and quiet. If you are looking to enjoy peace and tranquility away from the maddening crowds Uma Kalai is waiting for you.
