Bali is ♥ : Uma Sapna Villa

During my trip planning, I was practically having a headache when it comes to accommodation.  Why, you ask? Don’t get me wrong, Bali got plenty of hotels.  But the thing is, I fell in love with all the private villas, that i can daydream just looking at the website!  But but but but most of the villas are freaking freaking out of my budget.  I almost settled for one of those generic hotels, until I found Uma Sapna’s website.  They have private villas and their location is perfect!  When Lia return my email with the quotation, I was sold.  Everything seems to be in good hands.

Uma Sapna Signage from Jl Drupadi

I settled for the most affordable villa among others, the 1-Bedroom villa with Private Spa Pool.  :)  Airport transfer is included in the villa rate.  Upon arrival at the Ngurah Rai airport, we were greeted by the driver with my name on the greeting board.  =P  I think he was laughing at us for wearing a mask out of the airport.  Hahah.

Uma Sapna is approximate 30 minutes from the airport.  Actually, the journey to/from airport is only around 20 minutes but along the way there’s a lot of traffic lights, so maximum it’ll take you 30 minutes unless is super-duper jam.  As our flight was delayed, the driver actually waited for us in the airport for more than 2 hours!  All AirAsia’s fault! Hmmmph!  Then when we reach Uma Sapna, Putu greeted us at the receptionist and inform us that we were upgraded to the 1 Bedroom Villa with Private Swimming Pool!  I was more than happy after all the airasia drama.  =)

The waiting area

The Reception (I love the big big drawing behind!)

There’s laptop for you to do your surfing.  But I think the laptop needs to be upgraded.  Very slow!  =P

After settling all the check-in details, Putu escort us to our villa and boy, I was like so in love with the villa at first sight.  And trust me, its no puppy love, its L.O.V.E.!  Hahah.  Putu bring us all the way into the room and explain to us all the need-to-know things.  I was impressed, this is what I call, service.  He tell us things like how to operate the TV, DVD player, where the hair dryer is, etc etc.  Happy!  =D  Oh, btw, you can watch any DVD in the room, you just need to drop by the receptionist and they’ll bring you two box of movies for you to choose!

Now, let us see all the pictures k.  WARNING: PICTURE OVERLOAD!  =D

Our Room: RIAU (Sounded like hiao (hokkien))

I love the door sign!  “Please Do Not Disturb”

Faster come sweep my room!

The first thing I saw when I open the door, its the swimming pool, private swim pool, k. hahah

We can just walk into the pool, the naked-glamour way, cos its our own private pool! hahah

And by the way, the day bed next to the swim pool is very comfortable!  Most of the time, I lie down there and doze off, like a pig! hahahha =)

This is the Bedroom.  Comfy bed i must say.  =)

The small but cosy living area in front of the bed.  TV, DVD player, audio player is all here.  The only thing I reckon they should upgrade is the TV.  If they have LCD TV, then voila, it is almost near perfection.  =)  Oh, they got Cable TV, a lot of channels, even Asian Food Channel. Hahha.

The Big Big Mirror with not one but two basins

And basically everything is provided.  Dental Kit, Cotton Bud, Cotton Puff, Comb, Shower Cap…

Their in-room slipper is comfortable!  =P

The Shower.  =)

The Place to P&P.  tee hee

Oh, and the open concept bath tub.  I put Bramen there, so that you can gauge how big is the bathtub!  I say, it can easily fit in 4 of me!  =P  Big nice bathtub. hahha

See, i can see you. hahha

If you’re staying at this villa, you don’t need to bring any bath foam, shampoo or even conditioner!  They have very very nice shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.  Trust me, I almost wanted to bring it back cos I really love the smell

Personalised message from the Manager.  =)

The Mini Bar.

The Complimentary Fruit Platter.

Mineral Water.  Compare to some other villas that only give out maximum 2 mineral waters per day, Uma Sapna do not charge extra for the additional request for mineral water.  4 bottles of mineral water is provided daily (standard), so if you want more, just request and you’ll stay hydrated.  =)  And remember, the tap water in Bali is not really safe or recommended for drinking, so even if you boil hot water, use the mineral water.

I’m early for breakfast!  =)  Breakfast is serve daily in the villa.  Yes, in the villa.  You just need to fill in the breakfast form the night before and the next morning they’ll serve you your choice of breakfast in your villa at the time that you have requested!  How cool is that?

I shall show you some of the food serve for breakfast, k?  =)  This is Banana Pancake.

Poached Egg with Pork Bacon

Nasi Goreng Indonesia.

Mie Goreng Indonesia

Breadsss. Choose from Croissant, White Bread, Brown Bread

Or Muffin? Danish?

Scrambled Egg with Spinach

Banana Fritters

Juices (Papaya, Banana, Watermelon, etc)

Cappucino.  I prefer my Latte.  I ordered Latte everyday!

Fruit Platter

OK, see, the common area, is equally impressive too!

Common Area

Common Swimming Pool

Common Walkway

Well-manicured Garden.

Spa @Uma Sapna

Nice Flower Arrangement outside the spa.

Comfy chair while you browse the Spa Menu

My conclusion?  If i’m coming back, I’ll defintely come back to play (more) with the water splash in the swimming pool and take more pictures in the villa’s garden.  =) heheh

See you again soon, Uma Sapna.  =D

  7. Desmond says:

    wow.. its look nice… let me know the price that they offered u… im looking for the private pool villa… or do u think the SPA villa is better?
    is there any extra services include (like SPA treatment, candle light dinner, etc)

    • blurdevil says:

      hey Desmond,

      Private Pool Villa is definitely better because you got one pool to yourself rather than the spa pool (smaller) but of course you need to compare the price differences lor. :)

      The price quoted for me is only meant for Room + Breakfast only. :) I strongly believe they have Romantic packages. :P So you gotta email them to get quotation :P Price also differs accordingly during peak and non-peak season.

      Let me know if u need help ya. :P

  8. Desmond says:

    hi blurdevil thanks for ur reply, if possible i hope u can give me the price… hehehe so i know wats their bottom line… ya i know they have romantic package… considering whether to take it or not… but the price so much different, my date is 15/3/09 its not a peak season :)
    but SPA villa got some “SPA” function right compare to swimming pool that have no function at all… the price for spa and pool is different, dunno whether can get free upgrade…

  9. Desmond says:

    yes got it! so as i~

  10. […] lotion, shower gel are all provided and it smell quite nice too (although i still prefer Uma Sapna’s shower gel smell […]

    Hello there! I was doing research on Uma Sapna and chanced upon your blog :)

    Looking at booking this villa too! (**cross fingers for free upgrade**)

    Is the villa conveniently located? (eg: easy access to beach, restaurants,shopping)

    Can you kindly e-mail me? Thank you so much!

    • blurdevil says:

      Sorry for the late reply Kay. :)

      Yes, its pretty conveniently located. Of course not right in front of certain shops, but its all within walking distance. :) remember t go o the eat street where all the restaurants are! :) Try Ultimo, Cafe Bali, Rumours, etc. :)

      Shopping you can just walkaround that area, walk towards the other side ya. :)

      Email me at deviletter@gmail.com if you are still cofuse ya! :)

  14. sandi says:

    I was wondering which time of year you were there (peak/non-peak) and how much was your rate for the spa villa?If you don’t mind, please e-mail me the details? so i could know what to expect! Thanks in advance!

  15. Eve.G says:

    Wow.. it is nice!! Can i know how much u book for the villa? Actually, i plan to go in Mid Feb. Am thinking if to engage a driver to drive us around the island. Where did u go during ur trip to Bali? Is the Uma Sapna accessible to other parts such as Kuta or Jimbaren?

    • blurdevil says:

      Yes Uma Sapna is nice! :) The rate last time is different from now. Email the hotel to check the latest rate :)

      We got a driver too the last time to drive us around. Went to the usual place Jimbaran, Ubud, Tanah Lot, Nusa Dua, etc etc etc! :)

      Check out http://limfong.wordpress.com/tag/bali for more wonderful pics/post of Bali. :)

      Btw, Uma Sapna is over at Seminyak area, so in order to go Kuta/Jimbaran, you can hire a driver or take a cab. :) Hope this helps

    Hi,

    nice site!

    How long do you drive or walk to the beach? Is it a nice beach?

    We booked a one-bedroom deluxe villa for this summer and I’m really looking forward to it.

    We booked at laterooms.com (is it okay to quote this page?).

    How much did you pay for a driver a day?

    Best regards,
    Fabian

    • blurdevil says:

      Hi Fabian,

      THanks for the compliment =)

      Its not so near to the beach but we try walking to Ku De Ta (if you know this place, its at the SEminyak Beach) and I think we walk for at least 20 mins if my memory serves me well :_

      Oh, I book directly with the hotel but I’m sure you got a good rate too! =)

      For the driver, actually it depends where you are going but you can use IDR400,000 a day as a bench mark for 8-hours.

      Btw, I am going again this May (when exactly are you travelling to Bali?) and I’m staying at Uma Sapna as well =) SO let me know if you need any other information. =)

      Have a nice day and thanks for dropping by!

      REgards,
      blurdevil

    Hello again,

    we will stay ther from 3rd to 10th of August, so it is quite a long time to wait.

    I asked directly at UmaSapna for a good rate, but the price was worst than on laterooms.

    Well, perhaps you can help me.

    I read in some reviews that you do not have enough privacy in some villas because you can look through from outside? Is that true?

    AmI right that the villas are renovated?

    Can you recommend a deluxe 1br villa?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,
    Fabian Plege
