About this listing

Nestled in a preserved rice paddy of Penestanan, our transformed joglo (100-year-old teak structure) is carefully designed to be in touch with nature. Penestanan is the hip area of town: yoga, cafes, rice-paddy walks and 15 minutes on foot to Ubud. We are off the beaten path and hard to find as there is no direct car access. We STRONGLY advise using our select drivers who know our location and will carry your bags the 5-minute walk (with steps) to Jazmin. Most other drivers won't carry bags.

The space

Lovingly Designed to Be in touch with Nature. We were featured in the New York Times: Building in Harmony in Bali.
Walk 6 minutes or ride a rented scooter along a tropical river path (and then up 30 steps) to our architect-designed loft-like antique joglo (traditional Javanese teak house). Jazmin, like Passiflora is set in a rice paddy, which we have kept, partially intact, as part of our commitment to this agricultural tradition. Across the rice paddy is our other joglo,Passiflora Marguerite, our freshly remodeled house is across the walking path. We have also recently added a shared salt water pool for the use of our guests!
Our area has no car access nor motorbike noise, but many sounds of geckos, roosters, frogs and collared kingfisher birds, while still walking distance from Ubud (15 minutes).

Jazmin is a reclaimed antique joglo brought over timber by timber from Java. Each of my joglos has its own personality and I carefully design every detail to make sure that staying in these transformed traditional structures is a one of a kind experience in luxurious but simple ecological living.

As you walk into Jazmin, you'll be taken by the spacious loft -like feeling (1000 sq. ft. /90 meters square) with the added visual pleasure of antique teak timber beams and carved wood panels. The roof is made of handwoven grass known as "alang-alang" here.

I have combined traditional elements, but the sensibility is modern with an emphasis on comfort. There are no villas in Ubud quite as uniquely in touch with nature as Passiflora and Jazmin.

Read on the daybed on the verandah, have a conversation in the living room then have a nap in the bedroom on the king-sized super comfortable bed overlooking the ever changing landscape of the rice paddies. The kitchen is perfect for cooking: polished concrete countertops and reclaimed wood cabinet doors. At night, the bedroom locks up for privacy and safety, but the living room stays open for maximum connection with nature. You can practice yoga comfortably in so many spots and later bathe under the stars in the sunken tub. Made and Made will pamper you with healthy breakfasts of Bali Buda bread, Bali Coffee and our homemade yogurt and jam. No breakfast would be complete without a plate of tropical fruit. I'll leave you my list of my favorite secret spots and restaurants.

Honeymoon couples love Jazmin, however I also love staying in the joglos by myself. Our houses are the only two in Penestanan which are connected to traditional Balinese family temples.

Jazmin is a truly unique experience for FIT folks who want to be in touch with the Bali of rice farmers in the most natural but still luxurious way! Enjoy!
All my secret spots.. and sources from a ten year + + love affair with Bali. And my beautiful and kind and helpful staff: Sri, Made and Made.

I love meeting our guests and am doubly happy when I see the variety of different kinds of people, who are happy and make our homes their homes. That is your gift to me. I am available via email and SMS. And it is nice to know that you have privacy as well. And we have a very complete list of all things wonderful that are "must dos"... and a local phone for use of our guests with our numbers in them. Very handy.

Penestanan has become hip... and now has its very own yoga studio (Intuitive Flow), meditation center, approximately 10+ charming restaurants (Indonesian, Japanese, Indian, Raw/Organic, Vegetarian, Vegan) and a cafe and bakery, so you don't even have to get on your motorbike.
We can organize a scooter for you for $5 per day or you can take an expensive taxi to Ubud $5 per ride.. or you can walk... 20 minutes.. to all things Ubud . You can also hire a car with a driver for about $50 US.

If you'd like a joglo of your own, let us know. :)

We enjoyed our stay very much and the helpful hands were a nice treat! Sri was always easy to reach and help with all organisation. The detailed guestbook was very helpful in finding the right trail or restaurant for every liking. We enjoyed our stay in Ubud and the nearby area. The location is great for local warungs as well as hip restaurants. It's nice and quite but not to far away from all things to see and do in Ubud. There are some things at the house that could be renewed. But you're living in nature at this house, that's part of it. And with high levels of humidity in Ubud, you could probably renew towels and bedding weekly to hold western standards. At this price level, you can expect some standards that a nearly reached. We would like to stay again at Sri house and this area!

After many visits to Bali over the past years I feel like we have finally cracked the perfect holiday experience at Sri's villa. A dream holiday. Secluded, but walking distance to everything. The villa is incredible. Rustic, romantic and comfortable. Great breakfasts from Made, Made and Eva. We will definitely be back. Make sure you venture to Paddys Point warung. The best food we had, at ridiculously cheap prices. Thanks Sri and Alej.

Yay, yay, yay!!!! This is so good to hear, Nick! We are aiming for exactly this ( and always working on it )... the right mix of close and far, rustic and comfortable! You said it perfectly... Jazmin will be waiting for you both next time. Thank you.

This villa is perfectly situated away from the maddening crowds of Ubud and close enough to enjoy when you want too. The villa is devine and private surrounded by nature, with the lovely sounds of wild life. Highly recommend it.
