Green design villa in rural Bali 30- 40 minutes from Ubud, 1 hour from airport. Prime location as a base for bicycle tours, trekking, cultural tourism, white water rafting, or just a beautiful place to rest. New natural stone swimming pool. Air-conditioned master bedroom. The whole property is for your exclusive use - Private!

The space

Honey Tree Villa is open air design facing the jungle with a green belt river in back. Upstairs shower has views of lush terraced rice paddies . The top floor bedroom has a spectacular tree-house feel. You can literally touch the treetops. This space is glassed in with windows that open and is air conditioned space although I prefer to sleep with the windows open as the nights are cool. Beautiful gardens surround our stunning new natural stone swimming pool. Its a hide-away kind of place, for a great escape from city life and a chance to meet Balinese and observe their real way of life away from tourist areas. We have three multi speed bikes available free for your use.
All bedrooms have queen size beds with bed net canopy. There are two en-suite bedrooms with private bath. The master suite includes the entire top floor. The second suite is on the ground floor.. Dining room & kitchen are located in the new wing. Both bedroom suites have either a terrace or balcony overlooking the new pool. A "bonus bedroom" we call the Jungle Room is perfect for overflow sleeping. Access is outside in the lower garden. So, kitchen, dining, & living rooms are available for your exclusive use...you are renting the complete property.

Recently we lost the cell signal at the villa for some unknown reason but you can connect to the internet nearby. Kadek will help you. If you must have high speed internet connection 24/7, please understand that is not available here. The cellular signal is good most places in the village & you can access the internet while traveling around. Our guests do visit websites, post photos, hold online meetings, book tickets, and do email without difficulty.
Good outside laundry service is available at very reasonable local Bali rates. We have a breakfast menu, offering American, continental, or Indonesian breakfast for about $3 per person. Our English speaking cook is also available for hire to cook lunch or dinners for your group, about $5 per person. She mostly knows Bali or simple Indonesian cooking. Delicious take-out food is also available. Try the nasi Padang!
Our location is central to everything on Bali ( we are in the geographic center of the island) but you will need some means of transport. The most convenient mode of getting around Bali is to use Kadek's very affordable car & driver/guide service. Its almost as cheap as driving yourself, and much more relaxing. Our house manager, Kadek, speaks English well, is available for island tours or basic daily transport. Airport pickup / drop off service ( $30). Local trips or auto tours cost about $6/hr including petrol.
You can rent a car or motor scooter rather cheaply ( we will help you if you want) and drive yourself. Please read our guest reviews ... Most give a realistic picture of the Honey Tree Villa experience. Lodging in a true Balinese village may not appeal to those looking for a tourist resort environment.
Long stay or short, our staff will help you with any of your needs. Bed linens, towels, kitchen utensils, soap all included in the price. Gardener & pool service included. Every morning the yard is swept clean of leaves that have fallen the night before.
In short... Life is sweet at the Honey Tree ! :)

Guest access

You are renting the whole property and all its equipment, including 3 multi speed bicycles.BBQ grill. Swimming pool. 3 bedrooms. Whole house and all the grounds.

Interaction with guests

You will be met at the property upon arrival. Guests have the property to themselves, but staff will be on site morning and evening to provide guest services.

Other things to note

Tourist infrastructure, such as western resturants, do not exist in the village. Ask Kadek about Indonesian take-out food. Padang food is cheap & delicious.
Expect to drive, but not too far, when you want to eat out. Minimart and Indonesian restaurants 10 minutes away. Ubud is 30 -45 minutes away. There you will find thousands of travelers, and hundreds of resturants, shops, and complete tourist facilities of every kind. Ubud also has a traffic problem. Too much of a good thing. Still fun to visit.

The house is definitely amazing. Quiet and relaxing, a good choice for people who want to escape from the crowded tourists. You can experience the local Bali life here. And bikes are available to guests. It is quite fun to explore the area on bike. Kadek is definitely a plus to the place. He is extremely helpful and kind, and always smiling. His wife also cooks so well.

If you are looking for a secluded private stay in the nature, blindly book this place.. It's away from all the city noise and yet not too far from being able to access the central Ubud area for all your tourist needs.. Kadek and his family were excellent in terms of their service and never had one single delay in any kind of assistance we needed.. Wifi was the only problem but we were quite happy to stay offline.. It's coz of the cell company who recently removed the network tower in that area dude to less customer and should change in future.. All in all great experience for the 5 days we stayed here..

We had a lovely stay at Jack's villa. Kadek and Made were lovely welcoming hosts and looked after us perfectly. We had such a laid back and relaxing time. The kids loved the pool and so did we. The house has an amazing outlook over the trees and is open air so you get a great feeling of being connected to nature. The villa is a bit out of the way, but Kadek was able to take us wherever we needed - Ubud for shopping, elephant safari park and the local Warung. Such a great way to wind down. Made made us delicious breakfasts and dinners. We slept soundly every night and loved the sound of nature and the local traffic, smells of smoke, farm animals and the breeze through the trees.

Awesome location in a rural area surrounded of rice fields, 30 min North of Ubud. The house is open to the jungle... It was fantastic !! Kadek was always ready to take us anywhere, with a smile, teaching us about Balinese culture and traditions. Follow Kadek advise regarding places to visit, avoiding most crowded places. Finally, enjoy Made´s lovely Balinese food at home for breakfast and dinner.

Absolutely exceeded expectations! I would definitely recommend staying and stay again myself! This is such a dreamy, quiet and peaceful place to spend quality relaxation time! I cannot say enough good things, I would live in this house full time if I had the option. Kadek and family were incredibly helpful and kind! I also highly recommend the meal service provided by Kadeks wife, so delicious!

We are a young couple from Switzerland who rented the place for a week. The villa is lovely and kadek and his wife are just great hosts! We got a simple cell phone from kadek with his number so that we could call him for any questions and pick ups. Unfortunately the weather was very bad (even in high season) so we couldnt enjoy the villa the way we would have wanted. We rented a scooter but because of heavy rain it was very uncomfortable to get around (min. Half an hour to ubud) and pick ups by kadek were quite expensive as it sums up. Everything is quite far from the villa, just make sure to check the distances before renting the place. We were really looking forward to live in open air space among the jungle. But the rainy days made it quite uncomfortable as the wet clothes just wouldnt dry and everything started to get humid. This weather also attracted quite a lot of insects. In summery: if you have nice weather it is a perfect location to enjoy the nearby rice fields, go get a fresh coconut from a surrounding tree, meet great local people and relax in the amazing pool. If you are unlucky to have bad weather you would be better off somewhere closer to the center of ubud, still remote from the busy centre, but having all the facilities you need to have a comfortable stay in bali you can enjoy.

Split my time between mid-coast Maine & my house in the village in Bali. Been traveling since age 5. Grew up in South Pacific & S.E. Asia. Active as a real estate broker & director of Health Access Sumbawa, an anti-malaria social program. Hobbies include adventure travel, kayaking, cycling, and just started paddle boarding. I've seen a lot of the world, and for me Bali is as good as it gets. Enjoy making new friends & sharing what I have with them.
