WOW! Absolutely the best villa in Ubud, loved it!”
Our stay was perfection. They picked us up from Sanur & drove us to the villa. They greeted us upon arrival with drinks & showed us to our room (no.9 - the best room with the best view). The room was very spacious, well prepared, clean, amazing views overlooking rice terraces & river & has a gorgeous plungepool. Excellent food & drinks (amazing cocktails) were served throughout either room service or in restaurant. Staff & chefs were so friendly & accomodating throughout. We booked 2 tours with hotel, incl private car & their driver. 1st a morning tour of local rice terraces which we thoroughly enjoyed & 2nd a full day tour called Mount Batur Volcano which was incredible! This really shows the best of Ubud & really good value for your money. We also organised a surprise romantic set menu meal for our room one night. The hotel staff prepared the most romantic setting we could ever ask for. Candles everywhere, a bouquet of roses & rose petals surrounding the table in heart shapes! Even petals in the bath. It was the most amazing night ever & all thanks to the staff. The food & wine was incredible too, a truly unforgettable night. We stayed for 4 nights, 5 days & this really wasn't long enough. We didn't want to leave. We have travelled the world & have stayed in hotels, villas etc ranging from all ratings. We can honestly & truly say that Black Penny villas is our all time favorite! Everything about it was perfection. They do everything right to ensure customer satisfaction & to make your stay a truly unforgettable experience. We loved each & every on le of your staff & we are truly grateful for everything you did for us. If we ever come back to Bali again we sure we'll be returning. Thanks again, Richard & Rachael (UK)
Honeymoon villa with amazing views!”
My husband and I stayed at the Black Penny Villas as the last stop on our honeymoon. The villas are gorgeous and romantic with very friendly and attentive staff. We stayed in villa 6 with views of he river and the jungle. I would recommend paying a bit extra for views that include the rice fields. The scenic views, tropical birds, butterflies and geckos can be enjoyed while laying poolside at your villa. The food is very good, both Indonesian and Western offerings. The breakfast is very fresh and yummy. You are served more then enough by the very friendly dinning room staff. We also enjoyed room service which was very speedy. The Villa offers a free shuttle four times a day into Ubud and will drop you anywhere along the route. I recommend heading into the village in the early morning and returning early afternoon to the villas to enjoy complimentary afternoon tea by the pool, sun tanning and finally a gorgeous sunset views. We also walked down the stairs to admire the working rice fields, the river with happy rafters and local children bathing as well as two Balinese temples. We very much enjoyed this retreat, with beautiful views, tranquil surroundings and very friendly staff. Thank you to the Black Penny Villa staff.
Superb romantic villa in perfect place !”
Guys bali is safe for everyone. Please coming back to bali for this holiday season specially. Since mount agung erruptions in news and social media. Bali is very quite for this peak season. And made me so sad about it. Worthy for the price. Great food for breakfast. Amazing view,feel,and sound nature of ayung river in this place. Perfect place for relaxing in villa. And we can go stairs down for hundreds steps down to ayung river for relax there or rafting. This villa has so many choices for tour and sport. For you who need it. Great choices for us who celebrating our anniversary. Unforgetable moment since this is our first time visiting ubud. Thankyou black penny villas for a such great service.
Perfection In Ubud”
+ Everything is as you dreamed when you pressed the ‘Confirm Booking’ button and then some. We stayed in the River View Villa (9 and 10) and were blown away with the serenity of the view. Also, the villa itself is perfection. I took my partner for her birthday and everything from the special cake and petals arranged to the BVLGARI toiletries - she was truly amazed. - as was I. + The pool temperature was perfect and made for great relief after walking around Ubud and taking advantage of the hotels Tour Packages. Having travelled Bali on both a shoestring budget and luxuriously I can definitely attest to the value for money with Black Penny’s food cost, tours costs and extras. + A special thank you to Dewa for showing us around the island - A true gentleman and made us feel like friends before customers. - There are absolutely no negatives with this villa resort. It truly is perfection in Ubud. Keep up the great work - Terima kasih, Black Penny!
Incredible rooms with own swimmingpool!”
This hotel really took us by surprise, rooms were incredible and the best price/quality we had so far in Bali. The view is amazing, looking over the tropical rainforest in the area of Ubud with a river at the bottom. Truly incredible, we had the best stay in one month holiday of Bali. Staff is very friendly and although their english is not always great they will do everything to make you happy. Beds are the most comfy we've experienced, the pool refreshing after a day in busy Ubud and the bathrooms are huge with an outdoor bathtub. We would recommend Black Penny to people who appreciate a stylish, relaxing and quiet stay and don't mind the 10 minute drive (scooter is best) to the centre of Ubud. We really liked that the hotel was not right in the heart of Ubud, that's way too busy. The hotel opened some months ago so if you can get a good welcome-deal like we did, go for it!
We just got married and booked this hotel one year prior to our honeymoon. Black Penny was awesome with so much of privacy and pool to our self. Although we have to climb stair for every breakfast but all the days we were served in the villa facing the pool. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The experience is beautiful. It is so good that in the night and morning you can listen the river flow and birds chirping, the villa is so much of nature vibes. It is located quite far away for ubud center town but you can always hire a bike to go around (10mins by bike). it is a relax getaway. Will definitely come to Black Penny the next time we visit Ubud, this villa is very special to our hearts and will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks Black Penny you guys did a great job for making our honeymoon a splendid one.
Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful setting.”
My husband and I are in our 70s and have only recently returned to Perth after spending eleven nights at the Black Penny Villas in Ubud. It has been one of the best holidays we have ever had in Bali. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the staff were very attentive during our entire stay. They could not do enough for us and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We really enjoyed the breakfasts and dinners. The transfers to and from the Airport were hassle free and the tours provided by Black Penny Villas were very good in that we were provided with a car and a driver to show us the places we wanted to see.
Beautiful villa with great view”
The villas were new, thus it was beautiful. Each room came with a private pool. There are a total of 10 rooms if I'm not mistaken. It is around 10mins drive to ubud centre. The bad thing was that although this is a new hotel, during my stay there, some of the fittings were already faulty. E.g wifi not working in room, water heater broke down, air-con was not cold, safe was not working etc. However, the friendly staff made up for these. They were very attentive and and made our stay great. But there is still one thing that made me disappointed. I booked the river view villa (which cost more than ordinary villas) but was shown to a villa (villa 8) that had obstructed view of the river. I was highly suspicious that I was not given the river view villa but kept silent nonetheless as I don't want to kick up a fuss. But during one of the conversations I had with the manager/supervisor, she slipped her tongue and mentioned to me that villas 9 and 10 are the river view villas. I asked her why I was not given either of these 2 villas when I had clearly booked a river view villa, she quickly tried to rectify by saying that villa 8 is also considered river view only that it has slight obstructions to the view. I really don't quite accept her explanation but since all the staff inc. her had been very accommodating, I decided to let it past. Other than that, it had been a wonderful stay at Black Penny. The breakfast, the view, the serenity of your room and the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the river are all to die for.
incredible escape in tranquility”
This villa is absolutely outstanding! First off to outline the best thing...THE VIEW! The view is insane and my partner and I were lost for words when we walked into our villa. You have a complete panoramic view of the valley and rice fields and river, a lot better than some of the villas in places such as four seasons which charge you 6X the price. The villa itself was so well decorated and very clean. We had included breakfast each morning in our villa which was quite yum and they organised so many little treats and surprised for my partner and I as it was our honeymoon. The staff seriously go above and beyond to make you happy here and we were so impressed with their kindness and professionalism. In terms of location, it is a little bit out from Ubud centre however they offer a free shuttle service to and from the centre and particular times and if you miss those it’s only a 5 min taxi ride. Our stay at Black Penny was one to remember and we will definitely be back soon :)
Dear Mr/s. Tali Haworth and Mr. Luke Warmest greeting from Black penny villas Ubud Bali... Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us, especially in the way you felt impressed with the staff's attention to making sure that you enjoyed your stay here at Black Penny Villas Ubud and we appreciate that you like our view, cleanliness, and breakfast. I am also delighted to know that you will return again to Black Penny Villas Ubud and we definitely are looking forward to welcoming you back. Sincerely yours I Nyoman Setiawan / Resort Manager.
Honeymooner's delight ”
We booked Black Penny after seeing just the images online and the villa didn't disappoint. The view was mesmerising and the staff very courteous. On more than one occasion they went out of their way to help us - from booking our fast-boat transfer to Lombok, to preparing a breakfast box to go - the service was exemplary. The villa is very close to central Ubud and the reception will help you in hiring a bike. E did not manage to explore everything or take part in all the activities, so we left with a quiet determination of returning soon. And, when we are back in Ubud, it's definitely going to be at Black Penny.
So wonderful that I almost don't want to share”
As mentioned in the title, we loved our stay so much that I almost don't want to tell others to go, only because I worry that the price will go up and so many people will go that it will be worn out when I return. My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hard Rock cafe the first night knowing that we were going to need time to adjust so we wouldn't be enjoying the hotel anyway. Then we stayed a couple of nights at an amazing multi villa. My friend rented out the entire 10 room place with ab absolute gorgeous view and it was amazing. We really didn't want to leave. Then we showed up at Black Penny and much to our surprise, we were so impressed with everything. The friendly staff checked us in and carried our heavy luggage to our villa. Then we saw the room. Wow. A cozy room with smooth, clean and dark wood floors. Two of the four walls were all glass windows, facing a beautiful private view of the jungle. You can see it from the large bed, or outside in the private pool. The room had the perfect temperature. The bathroom, woah. You open the door and realize you're kind of stepping outside, but the walls and roof covers all the right parts to make it private. Nice clean wood floors, great lighting, beautiful tub and shower. Everything was new and clean and well designed. I am very picky about the placement of things and cleanliness. I felt very at home here, except, even better. We had dinner back at the restaurant where we checked in and it was a great and inexpensive experience. The next morning we had a wonderful complimentary breakfast in the room enjoying our priceless view listening to the rain and jungle species. We didn't even have a chance to hike down to the river or enjoy the many other wonderful things there but with what we had we were already so happy. They told us it has been open a year and it looks like it. Our hope is that when we return, and we will, it will be as wonderful as we left it.
we had really great experience stay in black penny villa. The food was amazing,, we thought maybe we were just lucky , we were looking for a bad dish, we couldnt find any....stayed there 5 days, we had 4 dinners in the hotel, it was really great, (we ordered different dishes everyday...) but if we really want to be picky....yes, there was one food that we dont really like which is bread basket ..... it wasnt good to be honest.... .the private pool was pretty. and the hotel is located in the mountain, so of course you will see lots of insect, bugs in the room.... so IF YOU AFRAID OF BUGS, INSECT, PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE THIS HOTEL....cause the hotel is in the mountain, you cant make all the insect go out..... overall, it was a great experience. the employees are all welcoming.
A hidden gem”
We have stayed in the river view deluxe villa , me and my partner we didn’t wanna spend the time inside the villa just sitting and watching the beauty of the surroundings, the hotel is just a hidden gym in Ubud, the staff were just beyond exceptional , from the moment you arrive you will feel the royalty, breakfast served In the villas or else you can have it in the pool. I’m so grateful that I have found black penny and could stay there.

A wonderful Small hotel ”
Black Penny is a wonderful, cost hotel just 5 mins drive from Ubud town. Located behind Ubud's largest "Village" temple, Black Penny is a wonderful small hotel that has private pools overlooking the padi field below. Do not that not all villa have that view. Apart from the stair that needs climbing whenever you're wanting to go out of the hotel, the hotel has a wonderful private pool, nice comfy bed, semi outdoor shower and serves a great nasi goreng for breakfast. Staff are really friendly too!
Super love this beautiful villa”
I love my stay in black penny villa. The room and scenery is extremely beautiful and relaxing. it isn't too big like the other villa that will feel creepy, the room feels very cozy and nice. Bed is very comfortable and clean. Love seeing the attap house roof when I sleep each night. We ordered their room service and the food was delicious. Breakfast set is also not bad. Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful and very patient and smiley. If it wasn't for the expensive price of the room stay, I would love to stay in this villa for a few more nights. Only downside is the lack of accessibility, it will be good if the villa can provide free transport services to the places we want to go to since it is highly inaccessible and besides there is only 10 private villa room, this shouldn't take up too much of the villa's resources.This would perfect my experience here.
Fantastic for the young and fit”
We loved the Black Penny. It is intimate, new, romantic and beautifully located overlooking rice paddies and a river 20 minutes outside Ubud....free shuttle provided also taxis available coming back. Food was innovative, room service prompt and cheerful. This hotel has a major and potentially serious drawback for anyone over 50 or anyone with the slightest disability.The villas are stacked on top of each other in pairs down into the river valley on a 40 foot wide lot that was apparently once a temple garden . Access to rooms is via steep, uneven and dimly lit stairs, many without handrails. The bottom 2 have roughly 100 steps to the top. Given the high daily temperatures and frequent torrential rainfalls at some seasons this can seem like a major impediment. There is eager help with the luggage and all day room service to ease the stress. So, for privacy, scenery, service, food and comfort it is top notch. But be aware that considerable energy and agility are required to access most rooms.
lovely memorable stay ”
the staff were all friendly and helpful . our stay here was pleasant ! it was my husband's birthday and all the villa staff came by our room with a cake and flowers and sang him a bday song ! our villa was kept clean and replenished at all times with fresh linens. you could have all your meals delivered to your villa which was very enjoyable ! only down side that the pool is not heated and it was too cold to enjoy it . but the hospitality from every one there was so amazing that everything else didn't matter. good job black penny! I'm glad I stayed there for my trip!
the most beautiful view ”
The view was absolutely stunning from reception and our villa. The service was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our provided breakfast by the pool each morning. It's a bit out of town but worth it for that view and has a path down to the river. If able, hire a scooter through reception for $8 a day to get your way around. Will definitely return to black penny villas!
A simple luxury stay”
It's always a 50-50 chance when you try out a newly opened hotel. Black Penny Villas Ubud has been open for slightly more than a month when we visited around Christmas 2013. I had a late flight into Bali so by the time we arrived at the hotel, it was around 10pm. We were famished and was craving for some nasi goreng but the kitchen was already close, much to our disappointment but we were not surprise as boutique hotels tend to have a cut-off time for dinner. The room was spacious and it has a modern touch. However, I wish they would have more lighting as I could hardly see myself in the mirror when I was brushing my teeth. Tea lights came in real handy during this trip. When morning came, the view from my bed was spectacular. Overlooking the pool, it was lush greenery for miles and miles. Not forgetting the coolness of the morning which felt so refreshing. Overall, Black Penny Villas is located in a quiet part of Ubud and yet near enough to Ubud town by car. A simple luxury stay.
Awesome stay! ”
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the at black penny villas! Awesome food, super friendly and helpful staff and amazing view! However the frequency and timing of shuttle buses to ubud centre are too limited.
