Testimonials and reviews from our guests
I can´t rate the Avalon Villa, Arthur and his wife Budi high enough 🙂 They were so welcoming, friendly and helpful, thank you very much! The location is just perfect! The rooms are beautifully furnished and differ all from each other. In front of our room was a pond and a nice garden. And you are very close to ubud. We would definitely stay again, and hopefully we will 🙂
What a very enchanting place! Thank you Budi and Arthur for sharing your paradise wonderland. The grounds and pool are like out of a movie and the massive room filled with lovely decorations and books are magnificent. The rear walls of the rooms and the bathroom are carved in traditional Bali -Indonesian-style out of the cliff face, which makes for a special, unique experience. Come here to relax an unwind in a magical place where life is effortless and carefree. No need to travel into Ubud as food is available in-house and a very nice breakfast provided. Thanks to the staff who carried our heavy bags up and down stairs. All wonderful!
Avalon Villa.. Paradise with the love of Budi and her family with their warmest hospitality. A team of great service and love of what they do. I was there for only 3 days due to last minute booking and a tight schedule. But it was the most unforgettable experience as a first time Bali and lone traveller (with that, it was a safe place to be) I was introduced to a humble companion to be my private tour guide, Dewa, a hard working fellow during my intense tour around Ubud. Budi was very helpful with booking tours and arranging meeting times. I lived like a local, having a morning stroll around the Villa watching team members greet every morning – maintaining the plants and the ponds while waiting for my daily breakfast served just the way I requested. (It was delicious!) The view of Avalon is beautiful from sunrise to sunset with amazing interior setting and a river by the massage beds and the yoga area. Ubud town just 20 mins away from the Villa and many hotspot attractions not so far as the Villa is almost centred from everything. Avalon Villa.. I recommend this place and would love to return. The family and team deserves recognition with their work!
Arthur’s property is beautiful. It is unique and has amazing details like hand carved walls in the bathrooms, and a coy pond surrounding the rooms. It definitely is a beautiful sight. Just be aware of the level of seclusion… You will need a scooter or transport into town! There is nothing within walking distance. The food offered is limited in selection and only available at certain times. Also there is not a lot of information available so be sure to ask a lot of questions upon check in.
Avalon is a majestic place, the host is friendly and made me feel welcome. If you’re looking for a place that is quiet and peaceful, you should stay here.
This is definitely a place you shouldn’t miss in Bali. Everything is designed with love and passion. We we’re especially amazed by the walls, you’ll also love them. We didn’t see Arthur but his wife and his two sons, they are very friendly and you suddenly feel welcome around them. We didn’t try the food they offer but only because the center of Ubud is a short scooter ride. We really enjoyed it!
Budi and her staff were so wonderfull, nothing was too much trouble. This place is like a magical wonderland! I have never experienced an Airbnb like it and it was such a treat to stay here for 6 nights. They are right on a river with a huge deck for yoga or just chilling and doing some work. It is a little scooter ride into Canggu, but it was well worth it for the peace and quiet and to be in a beautiful neighbourhood. Thank you for a memorable experience and I would love to come back!
“Unique Bali experience.” Avalon Villa became my home away from home. The villa is a stunning and eclectic. I lived a fairytale life amongst lush gardens and Romanesque pool. Budi and the staff went beyond to make my stay comfortable. I had a true Balinese experience. Ibu Nyoman’s cooking nourishes the soul… my taste buds danced at every meal. Creativity is bountiful at Avalon. The new addition of the river terrace adds to the magic. A delightful massage or Yoga session can be enjoyed while soaking up the untamed nature. A magnificent living experience. Terima Kasih to all at Avalon!
“Spectacular villa, beautiful surroundings”, Stunning villa a splash of luxury that made us feel like vip’s! We loved staying here for 4 days, the villa was so beautiful we stayed there for one full day without leaving! There are so many lovely areas and spaces to chill and relax, not to mention the beautiful swimming pool and amazing bathrooms each with a beautiful unique bath and rose petals to sprinkle on top! It is about a 10-15 minute drive into ubud but the host Budi is happy to bring you in to the town and you just need to get a taxi back! Budi also helped us to arrange yoga at the villa and any other trips activities we were interested in. Breakfast was great and all the staff are very friendly and helpful!
“Wow!!” A group of us (7) stayed in this villa recently and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It is set in beautiful, lush gardens, with large ponds, a great outdoor pool (that is accessible from within the villa!!!) and has a lovely deck, overlooking the river. The villa itself has been carved out of a hill face and is truly spectacular. Each room is more lovely than the next and the bathrooms……well they need to be seen to be believed. The pictures don’t do the place justice. The owners and staff live on site and are super helpful and will organise anything you need – they organised a yoga teacher to come to the house and do a class with us on the deck area. We ate breakfast here every day which was delicious and dinner once which was great.
The only drawback to this place is that it is approx a 10 minute drive to Ubud town, but the owners will drop you to town once a day………it wasn’t even really a drawback in our case as the villa was so great, we were happy to use it’s amenities to the maximum.
I would thoroughly recommend this villa and if I’m ever back in Bali, I will definitely be staying here!!!
“Magical” This place was strait out of the movies. A combination Indiana Jones and Love Affair… the pictures do not do it justice and the service is what i would expect from the Ritz Carlton. The river area was a blissful area for breakfast and the food… totally unexpected 5 star meals (healthy too). I can only say so much, it was a magical experience and you need to see it, feel it and live it to understand why, Unbelievable value for money.
“Amazing quiet and peaceful location.” We stayed at Avalon Villa for one week and enjoyed the peaceful and serene environment. The architecture is a credit to the owners. This is not just another villa it is an experience.
My stay at Avalon was magical! Arthur and Budi made me and my travelling partner felt so warmed and welcome. Pick up service at the airport was done at no hassle, Budi even drop us at a local coffee shop to get some delicious Nadi Padang as we haven had our dinner. The villa was truly spacious and beautiful, I could tell the owners had put in a lot of efforts in the decorations. All basic necessities were provided in the room. Every morning, we get to enjoy delicious breakfast prepared by the kitchen. Arthur and Budi definitely went the extra mile to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They helped us a lot in our daily transport services, recommended a few good places for us to visit, and even allowed a late check out because we had some morning activities and couldn’t be back on the check out time. The location of the villa is not much of a problem for us as they do provide daily transport to town. I recommend everyone who is visiting Ubud to stay at Avalon Villas, it will become an experience you’ll never forget.
This place was an absolute dream. I loved everything about Arthurs place and it’s up there with the best Airbnb’s Ive stayed in worldwide. Thanks a heap for having me and I’ll definitely be back.
Absolutely amazing villa with a mysterious vibe to it. The structure is perfectly integrated in the surrounding nature. We loved everything about it from the exotic gardens to stone made statues and special highlight for the owners, Budi and Arthur plus kids. They took very good care of us and made our stay very pleasant, the only thing we didn’t like was that we couldn’t stay longer :). Totally recommend!!
Our experience was wonderful. We couldn’t believe just how beautiful Avalon Villas are. Our room or should I say our suite was incredible. I’ve never stayed anywhere like it. Stunningly decorated with so much to look at and discover. An outlook to die for nestled in the lush gardens with a running river down on the edge of the property. Our hosts Arthur and Budi were wonderful, helpful and gracious. Excellent staff and great food. We will definitely stay there again. We had our own car so it was easy to drive into Ubud which about 15 minutes away.
wonderful night in avalon! the place is exactly the same as the picture,actually i could say even better…everything here is so delicate and stylish. Budi is very nice and staff is also good. love the pool so much and the big big bathtub。good for couples ,close to the river and quite, clean ,big space ,what can i say? highly recommend and we will definitely come back to avalon.
We had a great start of our short trip in Bali. Everything was clean and beautiful as what can be seen in the pictures. We loved the design and exquisite travelling collection displayed by you. Surprisingly the villa is right beside the river and has a very nice river and jungle view, but the best thing is the uniqueness of this villa. And the room is very spacious and open with great furniture and personal features. We love It and will certainly be back on our next visit!
