Villa Kulanrama was amazing. We had such a great time there. Yudi managed to find us in the chaotic centre of Ubud and take us to the villa. He was warm, welcoming and all round amazing. His communication skills were second to none. The facilities were beautiful, an amazing pool, brilliant rooms (the beds were quite firm if you like that). Stacey even arranged some massages for my husband and I, which was so generous of her. Rusni the housemaid was wonderful, and whips up a mean banana pancake!

Unser Villa-Manager Yudi hat sich perfekt um alles gekümmert, was man sich nur vorstellen und wünschen kann. Das gleiche trifft auf das gesamte Personal in der Villa zu.

We stayed at Stacey's place for a small retreat, and it was great for that. Beautiful grounds, good staff and beautiful gazebo by the pool.

Julio Edi Pratama  (Bali)— What a nice private Villa. You can see the beautiful Mt Agung view clearly in the morning. 
Just the best traditional Bali experience without the hype usually surrounding Bali. The staff are wonderful and conversant and the support is outstanding by the networking the owners have made with the local villages and business outlets. If you want to be looked after go ahead and book.

Villa Kulanrama is a vacation sanctuary that will be your go-to "happy place, by the time your holiday ends....

This beautiful, Balinese homestead is located on top of a hill looking down on gorgeous, Indonesian rice fields, so every morning you wake up amongst the enchanting paddies; but with the indoor comfort and tucked a Goldilocks-approved bed that was carved by an artisan from a nearby village. 

On top of that, the owners, Stacey & Peter, have an on-call masseuse who will come anytime, day or night. This place is right outside of Ubud, in a village called Penestanan. So, Kulanrama has the perfect amount of privacy & seclusion for your getaway. That being said, it's a 5 minute stroll into the village, which is full of beautiful, friendly people and/or an easy 10-15 minute motorbike ride into the heart of Ubud. 

So, if you're looking for a mental, spiritual, & emotional Bali holiday, but with perhaps a nice dinner or two out in Ubud, then this place is calling your name! 

Notable Kulanrama Perks- 
--HUGE pool coupled with a jet spa & stone fountain.
--Just down the road, there's a Warung, called Cupit BBQ (the head chef also makes deliveries to Kulanrama, if you'd rather stay in). It's owned & managed by a Penestanan family, with a talent for creating dishes that could make a hipster foodie cry (BEST ribs EVER).
--Coffee drinkers can enjoy a delightful (also locally owned), cafe called Kopi Desa, no more than, 3 minutes from the rice paddies
--Meeting Stacey & Peter (owners) was the cherry on top for me, they're a beautiful Australian couple with big hearts, open minds, & are basically Penestanan-ites(?), at this point.

Emma Nichols — We stayed at Villa Kulanrama for about a week and had the most amazing time. The seclusion provided by surrounding rice fields is so beautiful. The people in the village are so kind and make you feel so welcome. I would highly recommend Villa Kulanrama to anyone that is looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful cultural village.

It's hard to put into words how much we have enjoyed our stay here at this property.. Where to start... The manager Yudi who is excellent and looks after us so well and nothing is a problem. The beautiful Rusni who cooks the most amazing breakfasts and makes us feel like family, the morning walks through the rice paddy fields, the lovely village with great cafe's and people, the gorgeous villa and amazing pool. Four nights was just not long enough. We have fallen in love with a different side of Bali. Thank you so much Stacey and Peter..you have a beautiful property.

Kulanrama was fantastic, one of the better villas I have stayed at in Ubud! From pick up to send off, everything was executed flawlessly and the staff was extremely accommodating. Yudi was always ready to help with a smile on his face and Rusni was lovely and made us amazing banana pancakes every morning! The stroll through the rice paddies is gorgeous and we also loved the onsite massages near the enormous pool! We were almost brought to tears when we were leaving as we didn't want to pry ourselves away from the place. You'll likely feel the same as well! :

This is a great property! The location provides a wonderful, remote experience in the peacefulness of the rice fields. This is perfect for honeymooning couples, or families who want a bit more privacy than you would have in central Ubud. The pool is wonderful and provides direct sun almost all day long. The gazebo is a great poolside escape, where you can have a massage (and we did... every day!) The short walk from the parking area to the villa was well worth the privacy. The layout of the villa is very nice, with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath downstairs and the owner's suite (with bathroom) upstairs. The amenities are quite nice. The staff is comprised of four members, the first of which is the manager (Yudi) who is at your service. When you call him, he will immediate respond any time of the day. He is less than 5 minutes away at any time. The highlight of the trip to Ubud was a morning walk hosted by Yudi through the rice fields. The housekeeper (Rusni) is a very wonderful woman and will prepare your western style breakfast and keep the villa clean at all times. The grounds are immaculate and the groundskeeper does a great job. Daily offerings are placed where necessary by the staff which provides the wonderful Balinese experience. There is also a night guard to provide your security when the other staff members are not present. Stacey is a wonderful owner and provides prompt feedback. Due to weather and other issues, I had to reschedule this booking and Stacey was so nice to allow rescheduling. The property is isolated, private and is exactly as the pictures show. This is the largest and deepest pool that you will find and we loved it. Delivery from several restaurants is available (at no extra charge). This is a wonderful villa and you shouldn't hesitate to book immediately.

“We stayed in the beautiful villa during our travel through Ubud, which we are so happy we did! The estate is located in a breathtaking setting, surrounded by ricefields. The garden enholds a large pool, ponds and sun bading areas. Yudi and the other staff were truly helpful and were always reacheble when we contacted them. Amongst others, they booked massage and ordered food for us. Tips when in Ubud! Try the vegetarian restaurant The Elephant, which is located quite close to the Villa, a truly remarkable restaurant. ”
