Imagine living in a luxurious bamboo tree house. That is Lila Bamboo. It is located in its own compound at the end of road in a little village (Nyuhkuning) that is a satellite of Ubud. While the property is not huge, you can feel like you really have gotten away from the Ubud scene. OTOH Ubud is an easy walk away and no one should hesitate taking the reasonably priced taxis. The view on the open side of the house is of nearby trees and vines while rice paddies are to be seen in the distance. The village has a couple of nice restaurants. Oh, and the beautiful pool that perfectly complements the house should be mentioned.

This one truly is something special. We've been staying in a beautiful handcrafted house with everything you needed. The view was beautiful and the pool very refreshing after a long walk for example. Everything on this house property was super clean and authentic decorated.

Thank you to Therese and her staff. Our family had a wonderful time at this villa. It was indeed one of the most unique and creative places we've ever stayed in and wish we had more time. Looking forward to coming back.

I just completed a 6-night stay at the villa with family (5 adults and one child aged 7). Therese is a warm and gracious host who is proactive in ensuring all accommodation details are arranged perfectly. The villa itself is magnificent - as others have said, pictures simply don't do it justice due to its spacious rooms and thoughtful Balinese decor, including many unique antiques. Simply gorgeous. The staff, including Wayan, Putu and Oka were always helpful. While there is no air conditioning, there are fans throughout the house and fresh air streaming in - the infinity pool is also a terrific way to cool off after busy days sightseeing. Having previously stayed outside of Ubud and in the city centre, this beautiful villa, which is only a 10-minute walk to Ubud through the lively monkey forest, offers the best of all worlds. Loved it and would strongly recommend a stay here!

You will feel so comfortable even though just lying in the couch or sitting on the floor.The beds are so cozy that you will sleep like a queen. pay more attention about the nature and inner peace,you will find Lila Bamboo Villa not only a place to stay but more like a connection between your heart and the (URL HIDDEN) not care the little bugs on the stairs or the step sound from upstair,they are all the flavour of life. I hope I can come back again someday.The staff here also very nice.The girl can help you making the breakfast and you just need pay for the materials. Also highly recommend to take a yoga class or experience doing yoga on yoga shalla. You will love it!

The Lilla Bamboo Villa was an incredible place to stay in Ubud. Our group of 6 adults loved the pool, property, and rooms. It was a short walk to the monkey forest and the shops nearby. We took taxis to dinner. Therese is an excellent host who was attentive, accommodating, and always responsive within minutes and helped us organize logistics and taxis. The staff is so nice and maintained the house is great shape. We had a chef come in that Therese organized and it was superb. We also had them do breakfasts for us and that was great as well. Highly recommend staying here.

Therese was a great host, very welcoming and helpful with organizing trips during our stay. The villa itself is beautiful and walkable to the main sections of Ubud. Therese organized a Balinese dinner our first night at the house which I highly recommend. The villa is open which provides great ambiance but can also be hot at times and definitely bring mosquito repellent. Overall it was exactly what we were looking for - a relaxing stay that felt isolated while also being close to the great features of Ubud and the surrounding area.

Therese Poulsen is a mid wife, a Dr of acupuncture, a Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, and the founder of "Breath of Hope Foundation Inc" & Satyagraha Ashram for children.
A Journey of Heart into the Souls of Children.

I Love to make a difference in the lives of children. Breath of Hope Foundation was founded to fulfill this vision using the grounding signs of nature and the ancient science of yoga, which through BOH programs has created a network of hope for children and communities in South East Asia, in responding to requests and fielding interest in other parts of the world as well.

I Love the nature, Loving kindness and care. My children and my animals and the great sacred teachings.

I love the Sea, riding horses, skiing and running—my deep passion for yoga and its discipline complimented and supported deeper and profound experience, as well as gave great support to life's challenges and demands. As a dedicated Eastern medicine practitioner and with my science background and with my great passion and curiosity for answers of life brought me to have great desire to work hands-on with people.

Life motto:
The Breath of Hope Foundation, Inc. (BOH), is a not-for-profit international organization that fosters empowerment and transformation in at-risk children and communities through a therapeutic intervention of yoga, meditation and philosophy. In collaboration with educators and researchers BOH is advancing knowledge of the benefits of yoga and promoting integrative healing and resiliency for trauma-affected children and other populations. Its educational and training curriculum is designed to rekindle hope and peace in at-risk children through school/community based yoga programs that stimulate a ripple effect from the child to the family, school and beyond.

BOH has conducted extensive re¬search in Indonesia and in Sri Lanka with victims of the 2004 tsunami, generating scientific evidence for the benefits of yoga to children and communities. The studies have established that as self-awareness of the mind-body connection is heightened, overall physical and mental health also improves, circulation and blood chemistry are boosted, and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems recover their equilibrium. Benefits to the psychological development of children include increased concentration and creativity. Their enhanced social development is reflected in a greater receptivity, sense of gratitude and generosity, and a new willingness to trust.

BOH is the seed in which Satyagraha Ashram for children was born.
“Satyagraha” is a synthesis of the Sanskrit words “Satya” (truth) and “Agraha” (holding firm), and it was characterized by Mahatma Gandhi in his peace movement. Satyagraha is culturally sensitive; we continuously research within the culture to see how we can serve in the best possible way.
Satyagraha Ashram’s vision is to provide children with tools, which offer them a view into healthy and self-sustaining lifestyles, manifesting love and respect for the planet. At Satyagraha we are equally committed to humanity and nature. This remarkable school for organic living is nestled within the village of Nyuh Kuning, Ubud, Bali. It is surrounded by beautiful old Blanggog trees; rivers run through the grounds, and the serenity of the landscape insulates Satyagraha from the bustle of traffic and tourism in nearby Ubud.

The Ashram garden contains an organic vegetable plot to provide the children hands-on experience of how to manifest pesticide-free nourishment, as well as a herbal apotek. A large com¬posting area recycles organic waste, and the Ashram’s three happy cows do their own recycling by mowing the grass, which they trans¬form into milk, and into dung for fertilizer. Satyagraha has donated two pieces of land to the village for growing flowers that are used by the local women for temple offerings, to support the old traditional Balinese culture. In serving one another the villagers help care for our gardens at Satyagraha. A beautiful yoga shala made of bamboo provides a platform for yoga practice, in which people of all ages from nearby areas participate.

Fundraising is an integral part of any not for profit organization. Therese Poulsen has thus far, used much of her own capital to stabilize the projects and conduct research. A key part of the Ashram however, is Lila Bamboo Villa - a traditional Balinese Wantilan bamboo villa with three stories - magnificent and luxurious, though thoroughly soulful. The villa was specifically built to be rented for private vacations, reunions, or small conferences and seminars. All the revenues from the rentals provide funding for the foundation’s work. Lila Bamboo is one of Indonesia’s tallest Wantilan structures. The traditional architecture utilizes sustainable materials: bamboo, palm leaves, alang alang, and local river stones. The interiors feature exceptional pieces of Balinese local wood and stone craftsmanship.
Sounds of crickets and frogs echoes like an orchestra; the scent of frangipani, the traditional Balinese temple flower, fills the air. There is a sense of living in the embrace of nature.
