Welcome to Majestic Villa, Immediately upon entering this princely private villa it is clear that this property's most distinguished feature is its truly unique setting which commands an absolutely stunning view of the volcano Gunung Agung,sculpted rice terraces and the ocean. The house combines contemporary architecture with traditional Balinese design elements and offers real comfort in a minimalist setting. As much of the living space as possible has been built to take in the views.The upper floor is 'open plan' and light and airy with a soaring wood, bamboo and thatch roof,and with hardwood timber flooring. The house has been tastefully furnished, with large teak sofas, lazy chairs and low coffee tables which all add to the cosiness.

My wife and I stayed at the Majestic Villa near Ubud on Bali over the Christmas and New Year.
It was worth every penny, the staff were just fantastic and made everything so easy and pleasurable that all we had to do was enjoy ourselves.
The views from the villa were just great and on New Years eve we watched fireworks from the villages nearby down to the sea, from 1900 until 0100 the following day...fantastic.
There was ample to occupy us, lovely restaurants good local beer and enough trips and excursions to keep a regiment happy.
Mrs Wayan makes the best banana pancakes (breakfast) and the extra calories were worked off in the pool during the day. I enjoyed simply sitting in the garden at 0500 looking up the stairs to the villa door as the gardener had put flowers on the steps and it looked magical...in fact the whole trip was magical...just magical.
Dear Graham & Lynne,
thank you so much for having chosen to stay at Majestic Villa for three weeks over Christmas and New Year to celebrate your 25th Wedding Anniversary. All the staff have told me how much they enjoyed having you to stay and have spoken very highly of your great personality, humor and generosity. You have been wonderful guests and we would all like to welcome you back to Majestic Villa at any time.
(Majestic Villa Owner)
From the start, David (the owner) made the whole planning process as easy as it could be. He replied to our questions very quickly and left no question unanswered. Upon arrival Mr. Made (villa driver) picked us up at the airport. He was our personal tour guide throughout the trip and made it very memorable. He had itineraries ready to go in his head and he was ready to take us anywhere we wanted to go. He was very knowledgeable on the Balinese culture and took us to some awesome sites. Once we arrived at the Majestic Villa we were greeted by the villa staff. The villa was AMAZING! The breathtaking view and the atmosphere was everything we needed in our vacation. I knew we made the right choice as soon as we walked into the place. The first Majestic Villa we stayed at had two rooms downstairs. The master bedroom had a shower. Upstairs was an open living area with a couple of beds and another bathroom. It was very comfortable with our family of two adults and an 11 year old. Watching the sunrise with the volcano background was a sight not to be missed and we woke up early daily to see it. The poolside was huge and we enjoyed every minute of it. The villa staff was AWESOME! They quickly tended to our every need. Wayan “Man” (villa manager) ensured we had everything we wanted from our daily morning massage with Cantu (Highly recommended) to our morning breakfast from Wayan “lady” (banana pancakes!!!). Lunch and dinner was also occasionally scheduled and purchased from a local restaurant by the staff and delivered. Lets just say the staff made the trip very comfortable for us and I would go back just for their hospitality. During our stay the David contacted us and invited us to stay at his new Majestic Villa about 5 min up the road. At first we were hesitant because we enjoyed the first villa but what the hell, it was like having another vacation. The new Majestic Villa is almost identical to the first one but everything was new. There were additions to the downstairs rooms with 2 master bedrooms with bathrooms and an open living area upstairs with several beds and another bathroom. The infinity pool was awesome! There are 2 gazebos on the rooftop that offer remarkable views. The new villa can accommodate 2 families comfortably.The pictures do not do these villas justice. If you want to get away from the main tourist area and enjoy life, these villas and staff will ensure you do just that.
My parents recently celebrated their 50th anniversary.
I gave them some links to rental sites and told them, “Find the place you want to stay.” Almost immediately, they sent me a link to the Majestic Villa. The pictures and description were definitely beautifully intriguing, so I reached out to the owner to get more information.
David (the owner) was super-responsive throughout the planning process; he was always happy to answer our questions – no matter how strange or random – and truly made the pre-trip experience as stress-free as anything I’ve experienced. Whether it was asking additional details about the villa, or recommendations/feedback on potential excursions, his responses were always timely, informative and friendly.
When we arrived to the airport, our driver Made (mah-day) greeted us, helped us with the obscene amounts of luggage my folks brought, took us to the local supermarket – which he also helped us navigate – then on to the house, which met (and surpassed) our expectations.
The location is removed from the hubbub of the major tourist centers (thank god!), and the views were beyond amazing!! When clear, we could see all the way from the ocean to the majestic Mt. Agung, and overlooked a gorgeous valley full of luscious, tropical vegetation.
The staff are absolutely amazing! (Indeed, I grew so close to our driver, Made, that by the end of our trip, we were calling each other, “brother.”) The ladies – Katut and Wayan – who prepared us breakfast every morning (2 words you must remember: BANANA PANCAKES!), kept the house in immaculate condition and who, in general, just took such wonderful care of us – bonded with my mom so much so, that they all wept when it was time to leave.
Note re: the “accessibility factor”. The entrance is up a pretty long, steep flight of steps, and can only be reached by walking around the ledge of the (GORGEOUS) swimming pool. My father has knee problems & had some trouble with the steps & I was nervous with him circumnavigating the ledge of the pool (but, he never fell in, so I guess I was worried for naught…) If mobility is an issue for you, it’s just something to be aware of and consider. But, by the end of our time there, we all could have navigated our way to the entrance blindfolded.
Words simply cannot do this place justice and the pictures only hint at the beauty of the house and property. It’s truly something that has to be seen and experienced in person! Cannot WAIT to get back there again!
My husband and I flew into Bali for our honeymoon. We were promptly picked up by our personal chauffeur Maday who proceed to drive us for the next four days to anywhere we desired. He was great! On time, good personality, knowledgeable, and he had great suggestions too (like Lake Batur, Monkey forest, and Cafe Wayan to name a few)! On arrival at our villa we were overwhelmed at how beautiful it was! The pool was magnificent and the view from the top sitting area and bedroom was stunning. Wayan Ubud and Wayan the woman and man who worked there are attentive to every detail and as sweet as can be!! Banana pancakes for breakfast, they will go to the store for you, they will order food in for you, and they book massages for you in the villa too ($10 an hour, awesome!!!) Loved this place and the people!!
We've been amazed by Majestic Villa. Each day of our stay we could not believe we were staying in such a beautiful and elegant place. As some reviewers said, we kept calling it "Our Palace". High in altitude, the villa offers stunning views overlooking the tropical forest, volcano, and even the sea on the far right.
The elegance of the stone stairs, the impressive statue in the entrance looking at you like it is welcoming you, the religious statues at the bottom of the stairs giving the feeling to be in a temple, the incredible infinity pool with water falling down the walls and stairs...everything has been well thought and gives a feeling of serenity. As well as being Majestic, the villa truly makes you "feel" the culture of Bali.
The staff was really helpful and pleasant. The manager Wayan helped us organise our transfer to Nusa Lembogan very efficiently. Made the driver accommodated our plans and added great visits to our pleasure. Our 18 months old daughter just fell in love with him, it was just amazing! When she was asleep in the car, Made offered us to look after her while we'd go to visit a temple and on a few occasions he took her for a walk so we could have a quiet time eating at a restaurant.
The surroundings of the villa are exceptional (I strongly advise to go and see the volcano, the temple Gunung Kawi and the walk along the Sayan river starting from the Sayan Terrace Hotel with a guide).
We ended up eating most nights at the villa delivered food from a Chinese restaurant organised by Wayan, it was really good.
Our biggest regret is to have spent 3 nights only at the villa. Wayan told us that there are great walks to do nearby but we didn't have the time. It was worth taking the challenge to go with our toddler girl (no fence around the pool, stairs and big gaps in the balcony fence), it is an experience we'll never forget!
Thank you Wayan (man and woman), Made and David.
I spent a week at this wonderful villa for Xmas 2013 with my wife and 2 kids ages 12 &14 . We called it our palace. Rather than repeat what has been said, I'll just say I completely agree with the next couple of positive reviews titled "Magic @ Majestic" and "gorgeous spot". I realized quickly having someone like Wayan with you was a big bonus. He knows everyplace to go. He'll get you there and then wait for whenever you are ready to move on. If he sees you trying to get across a busy street in Ubud, he will fearlessly jump in front of traffic to clear a path. He has the same attitude to get a great restaurant table for us. As a great guide, I realized he always took the routes that would allow us to see the most beautiful sites, without us asking. Lot's to see and do in all directions, but we were happy not to be staying in the middle of all the scooters and tourists in Ubud. He gave us a phone so we could always reach him, without fail. For being gone all day, I thought the fee of 350k Rp very reasonable for a really nice van with Wayan. The housekeeper is very sweet and lovely. Pancakes and a smile in the morning. Make sure to load up at the grocery store because some days you're not going to want to leave the villa. Regarding other reviews, I wonder if they found anywhere in Bali that they were satisfied. The Villa is on a very small country road with little traffic and you would have a really hard time finding something more peaceful. Nobody on the road can see anything going on at the Villa, inside or by the pool. We all managed the walk round the pool and up the stairs entrance just fine, but for the very elderly and very young it would be concerning, depends on your group I guess. The staff brought all of our gear to and from the Villa for us. The kitchen worked fine for us with granite counter tops and 2 nice fridges, plus all the other things you might need. David who owns the Villa is great at coordinating the stay and providing answers to any question you might have.
The service was outstanding from even before the booking. David, the owner communicated and responded fast to all queries.
Wayan (Mr.Happy), the villa manager met us at the nearby supermarket to take us to the villa as we arrived quite late on the first night. For him nothing was ever a hassle - a genuine happy host and he was there whenever we needed something and not there whenever we wanted privacy just to relax. A true Balinese with great insight into culture, religion, places to see and things to explore in the area - also very proud of his family and has some amazing stories!
The villa itself was jaw-dropping on arrival. It was something quite grand. The access not the easiest, but unique and we like that, as you had to walk around the pool ledge, but that didn't bother us as the place felt like home immediately.
Interior is decorated with statues, wood carvings, original stone and wood features (Buddha above the bed!) and there is even a holy rock sticking out in the back of the house where the staff place offerings every day, beautiful! The owner has a unique and creative taste.
Ubud is only 20 minutes ride at most, in fact the location of the villa was perfectly in the middle to explore all temples and sacred places around Gianyar (Goa Gajah, Gunung Kawi and mother temple of Besakih to name a few) and the art and cultural entertainment of Ubud..to return to the villa with no tourists around and total peace was another highlight of our stay..
The guys at the villa really keep the place clean and put everything into making your stay as carefree and enjoyable as possible. Facilities were great - beds super comfortable, kitchen with all needed equipment to make a feast, crockery, spices, etc. there is even a bar on the second floor, which would make sense to fill up if your having an extended stay (with another fridge/freezer provided)
Surround sound system was pretty impressive and helped start the day, meditate and create a nice atmosphere during the chill in the evening.
There are also plenty of books on local culture and other travel destinations as well as art, architecture, music, etc - tons to choose from!
Can really go on with this review - to keep it simple, we just look forward to coming back one day soon! We miss you!
Thanks David and all your wonderful team for an amazing stay!
Ps We left a camera charger in the villa and realised after a few days,contacted Wayan and he happily found it and delivered it to us
