The fabulous villa is located off the road nestled down on the hillside behind a rice field making it very quiet. There is a pathway that takes you to the villa - lit at night but not super bright. This spacious villa is really beautiful - open plan living in a traditional wooden pavilion with lovely Balinese artefacts. The daybed and chairs are comfy and there are a number of different areas to rest and read a book or watch some movies if you want to. The kitchen is well equipped and there is filtered water to drink. The breakfast is nice and very fresh and served at the dining table. There are lots of mosquito coils in pretty china containers to light at night.
The bedrooms can be closed off and are fully air conditioned. Both bathrooms are outside and semi covered but fully private surrounded by high walls. The pool is fantastic being a large 12 x 8 m and overlooking the jungle and is in the sun for most of the day after breakfast. There are 4 reclining sun benches with mattresses and pool towels are changed daily. Butterflies and dragonflies hover and if you are lucky one might even land on your book!
This villa is situated 700 metres from Jalan Raya Ubud up Jalan Tirta Tawar - the road is not terribly busy but is quite narrow. There is a paved footpath in spots but it is next to a quite deep drain and is pretty dark at night. If you are not a confident walker, the walk up/down the hill may prove to be an issue. We took it as a great excuse to have a gelato down in town and jump into the pool when arriving back as rewards! It is very easy to organise a driver through the villa and taxis drive up and down the road frequently during the day.
The staff are very friendly and there is security in the staff hut nearby (but not too close) during the night. We had a few power outages (a common occurrence in Bali) and the water pump stopped - but this was dealt with very quickly and efficiently.
A stay in the villa is very relaxing and I would recommend it for 2 couples or a family with older children.
