We’ve been lucky enough to visit a lot of beautiful villas in our time, but Kaba Kaba Estate exceeded all expectations of comfort, luxuriousness, good taste and space.  There’s so much to do on the estate itself that its out-of-town location is not an issue.  Everything has been thought of, from tennis, foosball, air hockey and all the major electronic game consoles, through to a library, gym and even a croquet lawn.  If only we’d had more time!  As it was, the pools, the spa and the spectacular home cinema were more than enough to relax and entertain us.
    
The staff were just the right mix of professional and friendly, and the chef is a consummate pro, delighting us with everything he presented.  Although there is a selection menu, we highly suggest that you just ‘go blind’ (like we did) and let the chef and his team surprise you with their magic.  Our simple, three-course Balinese dinner was off-the-charts delicious.

Do go for an early morning wander through the rice fields.  The locals are very friendly and the experience will be something the regular tour guides can’t give you.  The wide-open spaces are awe inspiring.

Highlights

Where do we start?  Villa Kaba Kaba satisfies on so many levels and offers so many things to do, see and experience that everything is a highlight.  Be sure to take some time to enjoy the estate’s eclectic collection of artworks and antiques, which will delight seasoned art lovers and amaze a whole new generation.  And if you are planning to tie the knot, and want to invite lots of relatives and friends. . .  well, wedding venues don’t get much get better than this.

Surprises

The villa has been meticulously designed and so well thought out that there is virtually nothing wrong with it.  One word of warning though, because the place is so big it may not be so easy to keep a track of little ones, and the many ponds and water features around the place will no doubt draw the attention of inquisitive toddlers.

To Rahmat, Trisna, Made, Kadek and everyone else who looked after us during our 3 week stay at this beautiful villa with immaculate gardens. You made us all so welcome and we felt we were at home, you pampered us so well that we did not want to leave. We felt part of your family. We have traveled to many 5 star hotels all around the world but have never experienced such fantastic 5 star service. Thank you all again for making our holiday so enjoyable and memorable. Wishing you all well in the future. Take care of yourselves.

Kaba Kaba Estate and its staff gave me an experience that I will never forget and by which all my Asian travel will be measured against. The accommodation and the villa are superb. In fact, the house of my dreams. Rahmat, the Villa Manager is such a dedicated professional and runs the estate seamlessly. Trisna and others staff are like magic elves. Rooms are made up when you aren't looking and service is of the highest standard. Ketut the Chef make a great range of excellent dishes and meal times are an absolute joy. All the staff are friendly, courteous and eager to make your stay at the estate and Bali the best it can possibly be. I only can give my highest recommendation and looking forward to a return visit.

We had the pleasure of staying for two weeks at Kaba Kaba Estate in January 2020, it has been the most relaxing holiday by far for us. From the very first start until the very last minute of our stay the villa staff have been pampering us with the warm and friendly service. The villa has been kept great condition with tasty art, a beautiful pool and very spacious rooms. We would like to thank to Elite Havens and the villa staff for unforgettable Bali holiday. On the behalf of our entire group "Thank you" and wish you all the best!

Service was impeccable, Rahmat and the staff were sincere, very friendly and professional, active and the level of service was top notch. We found the staff very accommodating of our requests such as our intimate New Year's Eve celebration that far exceeded our expectations, organizing a special spa day for my husband's birthday, yoga on the bale, a birthday morning set up poolside and special serenade from the staff (with cake!), we also had Balinese dance class and outfits. Food was excellent, the Chef's Balinese, Indonesian dishes were tasty and the kids love the chicken satay. I appreciated the vegetarian dishes at every meal and the opportunity for cooking class, variety was great. Generally, we loved every minutes of our stay, it was like staying in our own private estate but with beyond 5 stars service. My sister really appreciated Rahmat and Trisna taking such good care of her baby and I love how welcoming the whole staff was to our kids, even making homemade mango ice.

We've had the most unforgettable stay at the Kaba Kaba Estate. Rahmat and the entire team were just amazing - nothing was impossible and they just did everything to make us enjoy our stay. Every morning they welcomed us with a big smiles and fulfilled all our wishes. Our families loved meeting Rahmat and the team and we made friends for life - we all did. The Estate is beautiful and everything you could dream of but the amazing team made our time here so special that we will always remember our time here. The beautiful people here also helped to create our very special wedding day and made the whole experience so easy and stress free for us. This place and the beautiful people here will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

This is our family's first visit to Bali and without a doubt this is among our best experiences traveling overseas. The Estate is magnificent. The kids loved their room with the bunk beds. We all enjoyed the arts around the lovely Estate. Very impressed with the views, especially the landscape in the morning. Special thanks to all the staff who were wonderful in making our stay as enjoyable as possible. The foods were awesome and the days were very impressive with all the nature and temple sightseeing. Once again, this has been a very special trip for us. Wish to be back at some day in the future.

Your attention to detail was fantastic and we were always pleasantly surprised everyday with something new. We thank you so much for your hospitality and hope to come back soon (if you will have us). Thank you to all 22 staff here, everyone collectively made my dad's 60th a stay to remember.

It will be difficult to put into words our gratitude to everyone at Kaba Kaba Estate. Hosting a family of 14 aged between 7 and 72, all in desperate need of someone down time is takes dedication and hard work. Having managed our own guesthouse for 5 years, I have experienced it first hand. To turn a stay into a week of magical memories requires a level of care and service that is extremely rare in today's world. Everyone of our family rated this holiday as the top of our list - due to Rahmat, Made, Dayu. Ketut ensured our diverse mix of palettes were all catered for. A big thanks also to the extended team. The magical grounds, entertaining facilities and clean rooms do not just happen. We know many other contributed to our wonderful stay at Kaba Kaba Estate. It is an amazing place by any standards. The beautiful people who run it make it an experience second to none. Suksma.

We have come to the end of our week staying at the stunning Kaba Kaba Estate. I have to say with all honestly that this family holiday has been far and away the best one we have had, and our whole family (all of us) agree, from the service, to the food and catering, it is unbeatable. The lovely team, led by Rahmat, could not do more for us. Every requested was met with a smile, and they were always there but yet discreet. I can truly say I will be highly recommending Kaba Kaba Estate to everyone.It was our first visit to Bali, but it wont be our last. The beautiful Balinese culture and hospitality shown through every member of the staff, and the gorgeous of the estate made us feel we were in Paradise. With heartfelt thanks to you all.

We come to Bali to celebrate the 30th Birthday of a very special family member. 9 adult and 8 children under 9 years of age. A very ambitious project but such a wise choice in selecting Kaba Kaba Estate. Rahmat and his incredible team ensure the villa was our home for 8 days. Such warm atmosphere where every staff member is attentive and yet unobtrusive. No doubt we brought a lot of noise to the estate but there is always a tranquil corner to be found in the vast home or in the magnificent gardens. It is a credit to Rahmat that under his leadership all staff are so friendly and approachable and wonderful with the children. We are so appreciate of the care taken here to accommodate so many little people, wonderful books, toys, scooters, pool toys,not to forget the magnificent kid-friendly meals provided. Thank you one and all.

From the moment we arrived the staff of Kaba Kaba Estate have shown us true genuine and warm Balinese hospitality. Our group of 20 found Kaba Kaba to be an exceptional home away from home. Absolutely anything and everything that we asked for was always met with a smile, grace and a can do attitude. Kaba Kaba Estate is a stunning hidden home away from the hustle and bustle of the better known holiday resorts. It is perfect estate for those like us, who wanted to relax in beautiful and tastefully decorated luxury villa. One of our group owns and manages a hotel in Melbourne wants to take Rahmat Villa Manager home. Half of us work in travel industry, from airlines to cruise ships to managing travel agencies. We all know and understand how difficult it can be for things to seem effortless. We would like to all personally to thank Rahmat for his professionalism, relaxed approach and smile, we acknowledge his job is made easier from all the team members around him including the ones we don't see. Thank you.

We were recommended to look at Kaba Kaba Estate to celebrate my 30th birthday and recent engagement. Our guests flew from LA, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore. The entire weekend experience was more than we could here asked for. The villa is well maintained and gorgeous. But what truly made our time special was attentive and gentle natural of the staff. No request was too small or too impossible to ask for. The entire staff took the initiative at all times and made our guests feel completely at home. However, two people truly deserve special mention, the first is Kadek, who from the moment we walked in was implacably dressed and ready to attend to every our need. The second is Rahmat, without Rahmat to managing the staff, our holiday would not have resulted in such memorable weekend. Rahmat also was helping me manage a fleet of cars going back and forth between other villas. He is such joy to deal with, he is always on the ball, understands guest needs and clearly goes over and above.
