Lovely quiet villa near Ubud
Posted Apr 11, 2016
We had a lovely 4 night stay at Villa Sonia in early April 2016. The villas are very clean, surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens and lovely pools. We stayed in one of the new villas, accessible through a path bordered by gorgeous plants, near the smaller pool of the two pools (the main one is overlooked by the outdoor terrace restaurant). Our room was lovely - though, important to note, it was all one room, as the bathroom and toilet walls do not reach the ceiling, which made for an interesting evening for the rest of my family when I had Bali belly - and so, so quiet. The breakfasts are fantastic - the green banana pancakes were delicious, the coffee strong, the fruit fresh and the homemade marmalade jam spectacular. The staff were beautiful, and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. They arranged massages with a local spa - on the first day, a masseuse came to our room and on the second and third days, they arranged complimentary pick-up and drop off; they arranged a local sightseeing tour, and, when I was sick, sent complimentary ginger tea and toast to our room. They also made our young daughter feel very special and welcome (she particularly loved the towel art that greeted her each afternoon). A late check-out was easily negotiated. We met several other guests who were also delighted with their stays at Villa Sonia; one man was on his fourth visit. We look forward to returning to stay there again on our next visit to Ubud.
