Uppala Villa & Spa Umalas provides all the peace and tranquility you could hope for from a Balinese getaway, within the seclusion of chic and contemporary private, self-catering villas. The abodes themselves are incredibly sumptuous and stylish, but the piece de resistance is the private plunge pool, with accompanying terrace and sun loungers – the perfect place to cool off and relax after a day spent exploring this tropical paradise.
When you’re not lounging poolside, a complimentary shuttle will take you into Seminyak Square or the pristine white sands of Seminyak Beach. Or hop in a taxi to the Canggu Club, Bali’s premier members’ club, to rub shoulders with the local A-list. If you need a little extra help loosening up those shoulders, there’s a spa in the resort, offering a range of relaxing treatments. The resort has your cravings covered, too; it’s also home to UGGA Cafe, serving cuisines spanning from Europe to Asia.
Your super-sleek and stylish villa offers tons of space, contemporary décor and a roomy en-suite bathroom, in addition to your own intimate plunge pool and sun terrace with loungers.

Choose from the range of blissful treatments on offer within the luxurious spa and wellness center, all served with a slice of typically warm and charming Balinese hospitality.
Within the resort, UGGA Cafe offers a menu of Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese and Western cuisines.
If you feel like venturing out of your cocoon of luxury and tranquility, Seminyak Beach, the Randelli Gallery and the Kendra Gallery of Contemporary Art offer great options for outings. Don’t forget the complimentary shuttle service into Seminyak Square or to the beach. It’s also just a 15-minute taxi ride to the highly acclaimed Canggu Club.
How to Get There
This is the worst place we have stayed in. The pics on the website only showed the good bits. We have very little hot water in the master bathroom and very little water pressure. The kitchen is self sustainable but no cooking utensils or pots or pans to cook with. The sink only had cold water and same with the bathroom sinks. The downstairs toilet had a 40cm step which was an accident waiting to happen. The bed was comfortable enough. We were supplied with the very minimal cutlery and crockery. There was no milk for the tea or coffee. The restaurant food was very mediocre. There was a huge break in the front wall and exposed wiring in another wall. The 2 tvs only had 4 out of 65 chanels working. The staff were lovely and had no problem with them. The villa needs a bit of work. The gardens were lovely and so was the pool. We expected it to be a bit nicer when paying over 100 a night.
The staff at Uppala are all exceptional, very friendly and welcoming. Every member of the staff provide a 5 star service. The villa was very clean and private. The air conditioner is old and not very good, that is the only complaint we had, other than that, we had a very good experience and would stay there again.
Excellent service from all staff, brilliant value for money, close to all popular restaurants and attractions. Good range of food for breakfast, lunch and supper. Staff very willing to go out of their way to satisfy guests requests. Honest and compassionate people.
My wife and I spent 5 nights in a one bedroom villa. We have previously stayed at other villas in Bali that were also very nice but this villa offers the same wonderful luxury experience at a much more reasonable price than others. We chose a package that included meals and other extras which sounded almost too good to be true for the amount quoted but there were no nasty surprises and everything was as promised and no hassles at all. All of the team at villa were absolutely wonderful, always friendly, that beautiful Bali charm and nothing was too much trouble. We are looking forward to our next stay at this villa and have no hesitation in recommending to other travelers.
We had an amazing stay in a beautiful one room villa with private pool. It was just what we wanted being super quiet and restful.
We found the entire resort to be very clean with superb friendly service.
The king bed was very comfortable and the other amenities just lovely.
The onsite cafe restaurant was great, with daily breakfast included in our room rate, along with a choice of daily lunch or dinner which you could have either in the restaurant or delivered to your villa.
We had a couples massage in the Spa which were incredible, and and reflexology treatments in our room just before check out.... simply fabulous!
Canggu is a little out of the way which was perfect as just what we wanted, but there are several daily free shuttles into Seminyak which only takes about 15mins, and reception can always arrange a driver to take you anywhere else.
The only little concern I had was it was difficult for me to get in and out of the pool, as it only had one step/seat at the far end and I have a bad knee, but nothing I couldn't overcome with a little help from hubby. Anyone who can haul themselves out wouldn't be bothered by it at all.
