This villa estate is a very nice choice if you’re looking for peace and quiet with expansive working rice-field views. There are a handful of units that are pretty separate from each other, yet connected by stone paths and a communal swimming pool.
My single room (Balinese House) had a very comfortable king-size bed and aircon, with a nice open-air bathroom. It’s duplex-style, so you share a wall with another room. The other villas are suite-style (larger and closer to the pool). The shared wall is thin so I’d get the suite-style if you want more privacy.
There’s a small mini-mart right next door, convenient for getting random snacks (have cash). Walking to Mengwi takes about an hour, so best to ask the helpful staff to arrange for a taxi.
The meal situation is a bit vague so I’ll explain it here: Uma Sari Villas has a restaurant that serves breakfast (complimentary), lunch and dinner (you pay). The restaurant is actually a 3-minute walk down the rice field with a beautiful setting, although Ayu was nice enough to bring me dinner to my cottage one night.
For breakfast, the oatmeal and eggs are very basic, so I would get the banana pancakes with honey, or the Balinese breakfast options (order the day before). The dinner options nasi campur and nasi goreng are amazing and hearty.
Recommended: explore the rice fields and terraces all around the villas (walk or bike). Thank you Uma Sari for a great stay!
