The villa is nice, very quiet and clean. It is right beside rice paddies and about 15-20 minutes from the main town. The pool is excellent and clean. The staffs are all super friendly and accommodating. They all call us by our names. I’m not sure how they remember all of us (we’re a big group). The price is very reasonable and the food in their restaurant is excellent. We all enjoyed our stay in the Villa.

We stayed at Villa Agung khalia for 7 nights including Christmas. We had villas 2 & 3. There were 10 adults and 4 children.
You'd have to use an electron microscope to find fault with this place. Laura was fantastic by email during our enquiry and booking process. She even magically produced a child seat for the pick up and return to the airport and didn't charge for it.
The villas exceeded our expectations. They are huge, comfortable and well equipped.
The pool was spotless and well maintained.
The meals we had on the property (either in the restaurant or on our porch) were ample, delicious and very reasonable.
We had arrange a whole suckling pig for Christmas Day. It was delivered to our villas on time, beautifully prepared and delicious and very reasonable. (Of course)
The staff couldn't do enough for us without ever being obtrusive or gushingly servile as you find in the larger hotels and resorts.
This is not the place if you're looking for bars, clubs and pushy street vendors when you put your nose out the door but if you want beautiful surroundings, with really good accommodation and willing staff at an affordable price, you won't find better in Ubud.

We were travelling as a family of 4 adults and stayed at VAK from 4 - 8 Jan 2012. As other reviewers have noted, this is a special place - not only because of the serene beauty of the immaculately maintained villas and surrounding padi fields, but also because every member of the villa staff makes a special effort to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

We stayed in the villa that contains the two "Honeymoon" suites: the kids took the ground floor Lotus Suite with two beds; hubby and I had the Honeymoon suite with one bed directly above. Each suite has it's own pool and comes stocked with fresh fruit, biscuits, coffee and tea, mineral water and filtered water, and two big bottles of Bintang beer. The villa is super clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfasts, all of which come with a bowl of cut up fresh fruit, are HUGE and the selections include omelettes, banana pancake, oatmeal, muesli, and jaffles. The coffee is strong and delicious. Trips into Ubud, walking and shopping tours, tours of other areas of the island, and massages can be booked through the villa, as can airport transfer.

We're already planning a trip back next year - but be warned when making reservations, VAK books up months in advance.

This is our first time to Ubud, Bali with my parents, wife and 2 year old daughter for a short vacation. It was a beautiful experience. Although we arrived at night in pitch darkness after more than 1.5h of complimentary bus ride via a desolate bumpy road, we were stumped by the private pool, beautiful villa, spacious rooms and comfortable furniture.

We didn't do much homework before we arrived. However, Agung and his colleagues made sure we were surrounded by warm and friendly service, convenient shuttle service to Ubud which is just a mobile call away and helpful driver who whips up itinerary on the spot after we tell them our preferences and constraints.

This proved to be a nice holiday away from the hustle of the usual touristy surf and turf Bali. Just to chill and relax amidst the cacophony of crickets at night, tunes of the roosters and chirping birds in the day. Feel free to dip into your private pool to y r convenience or to relax after a day trip.

I have to say, the best part of our Bali stay was this Villa at Agung Khalia. We stayed in a 3 bed Villa with a shared pool and it was divine. The villa itself is gorgeous, clean and very spacious with a dining table, living room, sofas, tv, kitchen, and one bedroom downstairs that can accomodate 3 (with an extra bed). The upstairs contains another living room that can accomodate 2 people on sofa beds, 2 bedrooms that can accomodate 2 people each and two balconys with amazing views of the paddy fields. The pool is divine - not heated - but water is the perfect temperature for the humid Bali weather - we used the pool everyday. The staff are very humble and sweet and are the nicest people - so please tip them generously. Guru the main manager was very helpful and gave us a phone to use all day to contact the villa and our drivers....the drivers were also very helpful and kind. You can get a massage in your villa gazebo that overlooks the paddy fields everyday for $10 if you wish or go into one of the Spas in Ubud. The villa has a beautiful restaurant that overlooks the paddy fields and provides breakfast, lunch and dinner if you don't wish to go into Ubud. The villa was the best thing we did on the trip and I recommend everyone to try this villa out - you will not regret it. The drive into Ubud is around 10 minutes and you can walk around the paddy fields near your villa if you wish to......Guru and team - we love you! I hope to return one day....

We recently stayed at Villa Agung Kahlua and enjoyed meeting and getting to
know the staff. The pool was beautiful and meticulously clean. We spent a
lot of time in it.
However overall I found Villa Agung Kahlia to be a disappointment for two
reasons.
Firstly the interior design. Bali is well known for its design. And Modern
Balinese Design is particularly highly regarded. I assumed that Villa Agung
Kahlia, would be a showcase of modern Balinese interiors. It was not. The
actual rooms in Agung Kahlia are huge with little furniture, making the
space feel empty and unfinished. The pieces that are there, are ugly,
horrible vinyl couches; uninspiring coffee tables; uncomfortable lounges.
The rooms are lit by bare fluorescent-like bulbs in each corner with no lampshades.
That¹s right, no lampshades at all. Just bare bulbs. I thought that perhaps
they were in the process of replacing the lampshades until I visited another
room and saw that it was the same. So at night the room, lit up by ugly
white-light lightbulbs, has about as much ambience as a 7-11. Frankly it was unpleasant and to my mind, unacceptable.
Secondly, it¹s difficult to get much privacy at Villa Agung Kahlia. The way
the villa is designed is that every guest that arrived/or left had to walk
past our front door and had a clear view of our pool, and us in it. At one
point the owner came to visit us and walked up our path and through our
front door and into our loungeroom without knocking or hesitating. We were
shocked. I would¹ve thought being respectful of your guests¹ privacy is the
first rule of hotel management.
I can¹t recommend Villa Agung Kahlia because design and privacy really
matter to me. If they don¹t to you and you want friendly service and a very
inviting pool then Villa Agung Kahlia may well be a great place for a
holiday. But it wasn¹t for us.

Response from eastrips, Owner at Villa Agung Khalia
Responded 25 Nov 2011
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Villa Agung Khalia and for recognizing the clean, friendly environment that we offer. Getting to know and interact with the staff is one of the pleasures of staying with us. We provide a traditional Balinese experience in upscale accommodation using traditional design elements, locally sourced materials, and a staff from the immediate community. Our entire staff, including our local co-owner Agung, is trained to knock or call out before ever entering an occupied villa, so we apologize profusely for this event. Having observed Agung over the years I can honestly say that I have never seen this happen before and can only imagine his soft-spoken “hallo” was not heard before entering the lounge room, which is the room you enter directly from the front door. I will discuss with him the need to speak or knock more loudly if the guests have not already replied. The location of the Villa I pool area relative to the first entry gate is a valid concern, and we are currently addressing this. The location and number of entry gates (angkul-angkul) are determined by the priests rather than engineers, and we are prohibited from adding a third entry gate as this would invite unwanted spirits (may sound odd, but this is traditional Bali). Our potential solutions are to use this angkul-angkul exclusively for Villa I guests or building an internal privacy wall which blocks the view of the pool but detracts from the open and welcoming nature of the complex. The lights mentioned in the review are low-watt, canned, recessed, or ceiling-mounted fixtures. They are all located 3.5m (12 feet) high and there is no possible way to put lamp shades on this type of lighting, so I am baffled as to how to address this issue. We selected this type of lighting because it represented a good balance between providing light, ambiance, deterring flying insects, and providing easy access for cleaning. Lamp shades on Balinese ceilings would only act as insect holiday homes. Our furniture and décor are locally sourced. We know the people who hand-made most of the furniture and who painted much of the artwork. The traditional furniture models our traditional Balinese exterior, and it has never been our intent to market the villa as “a showcase of modern Balinese interior design”. Our website, photos, and prior guest reviews accurately reflect the nature of the villa interiors, but we will take your comments to heart and revise our website to more clearly reflect both what we highlight at Villa Agung Khalia, and what we do not. We upgrade the furnishings and décor on a continuous basis but we will certainly incorporate your comments into our purchasing decisions while also maintaining our focus on traditional, locally-sourced styles and excellent quality for the price. Sincerely; Darren and Laura Villa Agung Khalia

The only downside of our stay at Villa Agung Kahlia is that we couldn't stay for LONGER!! Each and everyone of our family would have quite happily re-boarded a flight in Perth and checked back in to our new home away from home!
It was the first trip to Bali for all 9 of us. We favour travelling in Thailand and Singapore, so Bali has never been on our travelling To Do List. However with the hope of making sure my husband had a memorable 40th we thought we'd give this close island neighbour a go...and we're soooooo glad we did!

I have now used Tripadvisor to organise trips in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and now Bali, and this site has never failed me, and even though I could write pages about this wonderful piece of the globe I'll attempt to keep this review as short as I can!! We do urge you to read other travellers reviews as well because they are the reason we made the right choice and enjoyed the wonderful experience that is Villa Agung Kahlia!

OUR FAMILY... 6 adults aged 36 - 60 years + 3 children aged 2, 5 and 12 years old.

OUR SPACE = VILLA MAIA... Couldn't fault all the space we had between all of us, we could have fitted in another large family and still lived in harmony. We had everything we needed and wanted for nothing.

Yes you are about a 10-15min drive out of Ubud but that wasn't an issue for any of us. One day my Dad and I couldn't get through to town because of a small landslide on the road, but we totally enjoyed the slightly longer 25min drive and the road was sorted by the next day ...wouldn't see road works happen that quick here in Oz!! And whether we needed a quick trip to the supermarket or we were heading out for an evening shop and dinner, Dharma or Pasek were happy and ready to drive us.

OUR IMPECCABLE HOSTS... AMAZING!!! Nothing was a problem whether it be our first coffee in the morning; massages throughout the day, or a late afternoon drive into Ubud, anything and everything in between was a breeze!

OUR LITTLE TRAVELLERS... By the end of the trip we really felt as if we were part of the family! Our children were happy to spend time with all of the staff.
Our 5 year old loved heading off in the morning to order his breakfast first and jumped at the chance to ride a bike down to the village to visit with Putu's family (an invitation that everyone should accept if it is offered to you!).
My 12 year old niece loved chatting with everyone and asking them about their families and life in Ubud, and relished the chance to show staff how to play Uno!!
And last but not least, our smallest traveller....at the ripe old age of 2 she managed to charm everyone, and although shy at first, by the end of our trip it was like her immediate family weren't on holiday with her! Wherever we went she wanted 'her' Dharma, and would cry if he was busy with other guests. Her first morning back in Perth she woke up and asked...."Is Dharma coming out with us today Mummy?"

Enough said! This trip wasn't just about us older family members, we couldn't help enjoying watching our children love everything about their holiday!!!

OUR STOMACHS...there are plenty of fabulous places to eat in and around Ubud and we enjoyed our Villa dinners as well, including a special suckling pig feast that the staff organised to celebrate my husbands birthday. Thank you goes out to Nanga, Nyoman and the team for organising this very special evening!

Note : a number of our family members have a gluten intolerance and coeliac disease, which did become a problem as Indonesian cuisine does contain wheat. We were a little naive to this as we ignorantly assumed that the food would be similar to Thai dishes, which we don't have a problem with.
The local supermarket did stock a few basic gluten free items which we purchased to cook a couple of our own meals. But for our next trip we will look into bringing up a supply of bread and pancake bases, and we know the Villa staff would be more than happy to help us cook up a gluten free storm!!

OUR TOP 6 THINGS TO DO...

1. Ubud Central... A wonderful place that allows you plenty of opportunity to experience the fun of market and boutique shopping with a huge array of restaurants to tantalise your taste buds! Lots to see and smile at, and plenty of delightful stall/shop owners who are ready to bargain a little with us tourists!
2. Bali Safari & Marine Park... We all agree that Bali really do tourist attractions well! Again I read Tripadvisor reviews about the park, and now that we have experienced this space I don't agree with the few negative comments posted. This place is about the conservation of endangered species and you only have to watch and listen to the staff to know that all of the parks wonderful tenants are loved and well cared for.
Make sure you get there as soon as it opens so that you can experience everything as we did. From the Piranha feeding, all the beautiful animals, the Water Park and finish the day on the AMAAAAAAZING Safari ride....we were leaving the park with the staff at 5pm!!
3. Bali Bird and Reptile Park... You will never get this close to such a large collection of birds and reptiles in Australia! Two fabulous parks that our children could have spent all day in just walking around and staring in wonder. Try and see the Bird of Prey show.
4. Bali Buggy and Quad Tours... We did have a bit of a 'hiccup' with our booking so try and book before you get to Bali or use the travel desks in Ubud (there are a few on Monkey Forest Road). 3 'big kids' and our 5 and 12 year old had an absolute blast....fantastic value for money and a well organised day.
5. Sang Spa... 4 girls booked in ready for a pamper and 2 and half hours later we left completely energised and looking refreshed. Of course there are many 'swanky' day spas at the resorts and in central Ubud but this little spa in town was just the experience we needed. Wonderful staff, beautiful treatments and complete value for money....$24AUS for a full facial and manicure!!! Next time we'll be booking in every day!!
6. Country driving... We loved driving during the day as the countryside and villages are beautiful and interesting. On a couple of different days we manage to see quite a bit of the area around Ubud, and south down to the beaches. Dharma took us on many trips that took in some beautiful sites which kept everyone busy taking photos and asking questions.
A few of our stops along the way....
Rice terraces - worth seeing, but the 'hawkers' are pushy up there.
Sukawati - OK if you're shopping for really touristy bits but we much preferred Ubud.
Kuta - got stuck in traffic and didn't stay, didn't look like 'our thing' for this particular trip.... so our wonderful friend Dharma turned around and took us 'home'!!

OUR NEW FAMILY... I would love to write a little piece about everyone at Villa Agung Kahlia but you should just treat yourself and book yourself in so that you can have the privilege of meeting all of these beautiful people.

We were honoured that they not only made sure we enjoyed every minute of our holiday but that we were invited to meet their own families. Amongst the many highlights of our time in Bali, we will never forget visiting Putu and Dharma's homes and meeting their wonderful families. We were lucky enough to experience a family life that is not only unique but gave us an insight into why the people of Bali are such loving human beings. Family is important to them, and caring for each other is evident not only in their family life but their work ethic as well.

I won't type anymore except to say... do yourself a favour and contact the wonderful team at Villa Agung Kahlia to make sure you have a holiday you won't forget!

I first came to Ubud 25 years ago with my parents and it was a quiet, idyllic spot in the foot hills of Bali. I came back seven and five years ago with my wife and things were different but still Ubud was a sanctuary away from the coastal towns of Seminyak and Legian.

This time, Ubud itself has grown almost unrecognisably to me but Villa Agung Khalia is a nod to the wonderful rural past. It is only a 10 minute drive from the centre of Ubud and the staff here are more than happy to drop you off, even providing a local mobile for you to call whenever transport is required.

The villas themselves are hugely spacious and have magnificent swimming pools and loads of both indoor and outdoor room. The staff are incredibly friendly and my two young children were taken under their wing immediately. They had the best time meeting the newborn kittens, the turtle and the gigantic goldfish. We had our dinner at the villa on several occasions and the food here is absolutely magnificent.

The wonderful service and villas are set amongst the rice paddies and farmers can be seen working their crops throughout the day. The views from the upstairs balconies are truly breathtaking and, as they should, make you feel like you are in another part of the world.

For the size and quality of accommodation, friendliness of staff, quality of food and affordable rates, I cannot recommend Villa Agung Khalia highly enough. Take a chance and come 10 minutes out of town and you will experience the Ubud of old.

Can't begin to tell you how impressed we were with both the accomodation and the staff at Villa Angung Khalia! Surrounded by daily life in the rice fields of Ubud this is a gem and we are so glad we stayed here. I travelled with my friend and stayed in Villa Maia which gives great privacy if you want your own space with a beautiful bedroom and out door bathroom separated by a long lounge dining area which opens up onto a private pool. A friend stayed in a studio with private pool and he was impressed as well. We had a late night flight home and had booked a studio for the day we left to come back from a tour and relax have a swim and a shower before we left for the Airport. Instead we were offered by Guru the managers one if the large Villas to use as we would have a bigger space for the two of us to shower etc and more space to relax.
This brings me to the staff at The Villa complex WOW!!! Such a kind hearted group of people who could not do enough for us during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and often our needs were anticipated and met before we even knew we had a need! We were treated like family We went on some reasonably priced tours arranged through the Villa and were super impressed with the meals we had on site which were very reasonably priced at approx A$7 for a main.
The shuttle to and from Ubud was great more like a private driver really and the use of a local phone to keep in touch with the Vila for pick ups etc was super convenient.
There are a number of accommodation options. For couples holidaying together or anyone needing 2 bedrooms Villa Maia is perfect. The studios are perfect for couples with their own pool however I was really impressed with the set ups that could be accommodated for families. Villa one has three bedrooms and its own private pool but there is also Villa 2 and 3 which are on either side of a shared pool each have three bedrooms and are very spacious perfect for larger family groups or groups of friends.
All in all a wonderful stay topped of by a relaxing walk through the rice fields with Agung the owner ( not for everyone though, you have to be able to step/jump over irrigation channels about 2 or so feet wide and walk in between the paddies on a sometimes slippery path about 18 inches wide with water on either side) a must do if you are up to it. Also don't be afraid of the bumpy road to get into the Villa you get used to it and the drivers are amazing)
We would certainly stay here if returning to Bali, it is a piece of paradise!

My wife and I enjoyed a short stay in the Honeymoon Suite (“Sawah Suite”) and then Villa Agung Maia both situated within the overall Villa Agung Khalia resort complex.
The main complex consists of 4 double storey buildings separated by lush tropical gardens and sparkling clear pools. The style is conservative with a respectful observance of the “Tri Angga” being a key philosophical concept in Balinese traditional architecture. As a result my wife noted the buildings look much older than they actual age of just 5 years. The Sawah suite is the upstairs bedroom of a centrally located 2 storey villa. Both the upstairs and downstairs villas have semi-private compounds and plunge pools. The complex is connected with a long east-west trending pathway stretching the enter length of the walled compound adding to the effect of living in a communal kampung. At the far western end of the compound is a cosy restaurant with views of rice paddies and directly overlooking a small water course which is used as part of the intricate maze of waterways used to irrigate the paddies
The view from the balcony of the Sawah suite is very picturesque over-looking rice paddies and tropical garden. I expect this is true of all the upstairs bedrooms in each of the 4 / 2 storey buildings.
The bedroom had a nice layout with a king-size four-poster bed and plenty of wooden trim. The balcony is a little narrow and just fits a small table and 2 chairs from which to sit and enjoy the view or have breakfast served in your room.
The bathroom was roomy but spartan and the bath-shower-vanity-toilet a little dated and certainly not one might call palatial. All was spotlessly clean and tidy.
Because of a problem with the airconditioning we were offered a move to the newer Villa Agung Maia accommodation which is just a short rice paddy away from the main compound. The Villa is more self-contained situated in its own compounded, appeasing the growing clamour of tourists for the “exclusive” experience. It is far more contemporary in design than the main compound having a more resort style feel with ultramodern semi-enclosed bathrooms featuring grand stone carved baths and glitzy glass shower and toilet cubicles. The two bedrooms at either end of the villa feature king-size four-poster beds and are separated by a lounge/dining/kitchette. The design is U-shaped semi-enclosing a sparkling clear infinity pool which overlooks rice paddies (and some new villas popping up in the distance making one wonder how long the idyllic rice paddy retreat will remain as such?)
The villa also features a large Bale where we were able to enjoy relaxing massages provided at very modest cost from some of the local village ladies.
There is much to like about Villa Agung Khalia but as the website suggest it is the people that make the difference and we were delighted to be shown so much care and attention by the humble staff during our stay.
Other key positives were:
Excellent, timely, efficient and friendly transport service and drivers ferrying us in and out of Ubud or to anywhere on the island. The villa has several modern vehicles and the drivers are always on call, with suitable notice, to drop you off or pick you up from Ubud. We also had transport to and from other beach-side destinations in Bali which was reasonably priced.
A few points to note if your are considering this accommodation:
It is not set up for the infirm or disabled with many steps to negotiate
The trip in and out of town is around 15 minutes (I have read 5 minutes on some of the tripadvisor reviews but I assume this was measured in Bali-holiday time?) and it is a very rough road. This does make travel into town a little more of an ordeal than might otherwise be the case

Overall we had a wonderful stay at Villa Agung Khalia and would be happy to recommend it for couples, families or larger groups all of which can be comfortably accommodated. The pricing of the villas was competitive making the holiday proposition an affordable one.

We didn't eat in an Indian restaurant but Ubud has loads of restaurants and no doubt Indian ones and as you will have transport provided by your host it will take about 15 to 20 mins to get there

We didn't make the reservations but we paid approximately $100.00 per couple/room. So approximately $300.00 per night for the villa.
