Why Alam Bulan Villa chose Kemenuh

Vacation of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a two week stay in Bali, eight of those nights were at Alam Bulan Villa. We chose this villa based on the reviews and photos. From the moment we stepped into the villa, we were beyond elated. It is even more beautiful in person. Every detail has been thought out, from the design of the home to the furnishings. We were a total of 7 adults and had plenty of space. The staff was so kind and pampered us the whole time. Breakfast was delicious every day. Komang is a real gem. We learned so much about the beautiful Balienese people and their culture through Komang. Every day brought a new adventure. We highly recommend visiting his village and learning their customs. We also recommend having dinner at the villa prepared by the Chef. And another great day was going to the market and having a cooking class at the villa. All of the staff's suggestions were great experiences. We hope to return to Bali soon and will for sure return to Alam Bulan. We left Bali with grateful hearts.

A gem in Bali

  • 5 of 5

We spent those days with the family in Alam Bulan and we enjoyed a magic surrounding, where an exceptional team has been taking care of us every second. They made a reality every single wish and they have superated all of our expectatives. The house, a treasure into the jungle with a team that couldn't be better! Our best friend Mr. Puriana, a master! He made us feeling the most authentic Bali. Thank you Puriana!

Thank you all, Ketut, Ngurah, Surya, Eguk and Nyoman for make it happen!!

We will come back, of course we will come back!!

Gorgeous and peaceful with the most amazing staff ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the villa!! I came with my family of six people and it was the perfect place to stay. The villa itself is gorgeous, lush, and peaceful. You truly get the Ubud vibe while there with 5 star accommodations. The best part of the stay however was the staff which are truly the most friendly, accommodating people I have ever met. They went above and beyond to take care of my family and every need was met. The staff would anticipate something we might need or want and it would be there. The breakfast every morning was absolutely amazing. Komang, the house manager, helped us arrange any activities we wanted to do, drove us wherever we needed to go and a few days was a tour guide for us. He made everything easy and seamless. My aunt even wanted wine one night and he went out to purchase it for her. My family has done quite a bit of traveling and they all agree that this was one of the nicest places they have ever stayed. I would recommend this villa to anyone coming to Ubud. Thank you Komang and staff for and EXCELLENT stay!!!

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

I was in Bali with my husband and our three sons for ten nights. We stayed for five nights in Alam Bulan and then moved to Nusa Dua. Once we were in Nusa Dua, we pined for the beauty and serenity of Alam Bulan. The villa had everything we needed and also everything that we wanted. The staff was appropriately attentive, somehow always being there when I wanted tea, while also giving us privacy. The breakfast was always a treat--we had only Indonesian food which is delicious. Mr. Komong made sure every detail was taken care of and he made it all effortless. And the villa was comfy and spacious and luxurious. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We have been to Bali many times and this place is special. We will return.

Perfection. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the beauty of the villa and its surroundings. It felt like heaven on earth and the Alam Bulan villa team provided an incomparable level of service. They were extremely attentive to our every needs and they surpassed all our expectations. Puriana, the villa manager, has a profound knowledge of Balinese culture and he shared it with us in a very generous way. We were cared like we were family and this made our week so special. We will forever keep this experience in our hearts.

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this 10 day holiday near Ubud Bali was exceptional. The house, pool and furnishings are incredibly beautiful and comfortable. What was most important was the care that the staff provided us. Every one of our needs were taken care of. The house manager, Komang Puriana took us daily to see the sights of Bali...museums, shops, galleries, rice fields and most importantly the surrounding temples. His knowledge of customs, traditions and history is unprecedented. We really felt we experienced the people and customs of the Balinese people. We have travelled extensively and this trip affected me most profoundly.
