Kayumanis Ubud – a Luxury Villa in Bali



When I decided to visit Bali, I knew I had to experience a private villa with a pool. As a luxury traveler, I try and search out the best luxury in the world. Kayumanis sets a gold standard when it comes to providing luxury villas. From 24 hour butler service, private pools, high tea, gourmet food, to the level of service they provide – it is all 100% luxury.

One of the best things about booking a private villa is that it is just that, private. It is not the same as booking a hotel room – it has a door and you walk in and there are two buildings and a pool. It is like having a house, but at a resort.

To go on safari in Kenya or Tanzania, I was too broke.


But the surprises began when I saw Mt Kilimanjaro from my flight

And on Pwani Mchangani, I met the famous Masai tribe.

I pressed, I grew, but I do not know if I’ve still figured out enough to give a solid answer to the third part of the above statement.
