WHERE EXACTLY IS THIS? Intensely gorgeous scenery surrounds this amazing studio perched on top of the famous Campuhan Ridge Trail in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. In a lovely village named Bankiang Sidem, it is only 7 minutes from the Big Bintang (one of top three grocery stores in Ubud.) Ideal location for mountain trips, rafting, seeing the elephants, cycling and hiking right outside your door step.

HOW SHORT OF DRIVE FROM UBUD? The short 7 minute drive will take you back to the yesteryears of the real Balinese villages, passing temples and dipping through the cool jungle air and over a river before popping up to tiered rice fields that stretch on forever as you turn onto your road. You are far removed from the traffic, smog and hectic craziness of Ubud without being far away. Magically you are in the heart of Ubud on a ridge immersed in tiered rice fields, jungles, palm trees and views of Bali mountains while being lulled by the sound of flowing river far below.

WHY IS THIS AREA SPECIAL? The confluence of rivers on both sides of the ridge is the original heart of Ubud and how the name came about. In the 8th century a Javanese Hindu priest came to Bali and mediated at the confluence of the two Wos rivers at Campuhan. Ubud is translated to "medicine" or "healing." A temple was constructed at this site and still stands where the rivers merge from each side of the ridge. This temple is stunning and is being rehabbed now it is a sight to behold to see the intricacies of the detailed workmanship of old and new side by side! When you stay here, you understand the meridians and flow of energy here and why this location means healing. It is something to be felt, totally undescribable. I fell in love with this place the first moment I drove down the road. It is truely a magical and healing place to be experienced and felt.

WHAT ARE THE BEDROOMS LIKE? There is currently a Queen sized bed and in addiiton, it would be perfect for friends traveling together, because there is an oversized sofa, with brand new super thick cushions to call bed. You can see the 'L' shaped sofa in the photo and it is ample enough room for one person on each side. The size is 7 foot long and single bed width on each side. Views consist of lucious jungle, tiered rice fields and distant mountains. It is VERY private!

IS THE LIVING AREA BIG? A massive oversized couch is in the large living area to chill out and drink the views in (or wine!) Lounge in the spacious luxury and soak up the green surroundings outside with fresh breezes flowing through from the rice paddies and jungle. With this open floor plan and one open wall looking out over the jungle, you feel nestled in and comfortable yet free amongst the blue sky above every color and hue of green imaginable as far as they eye can see. In the mornings, be ready for a sunrise unlike any other with mountains in the distance appearing like magic from the mist and clouds. Admire the beams of sunlight as they cut through the steam rising from the jungle if you are up early. In the evening just relax and watch how the trees change colors as the sun sets from behind.

WHAT DO I SEE FROM THE HOUSE? Pure Nature. Step out the front door, and you are likely to see Balinese people working in rice fields no more than 10 feet away. Villagers passing by with wood for the stove on their head, coconuts tied to bamboo to take home, giant stacks of grass heading home to feed their cows...you are smack dab in the middle of a working village with smiles all around. You see pure never ending jungle looking over to the other ridge over a hidden river flowing with calming water sounds. The west side of the studio where you enter is a view of tiered rice fields in every direction that will literally take your breath away. You are on ground level at the front door, but two stories up at the open wall facing the jungle, so the privacy is unbeatable.

FOOD/KITCHEN INCLUDED? Breakfast is available for an additional 50,000RP (about $5usd) per person per day upon request. Example: Tea or Coffee, Fruits, Eggs or Omlette or Balinese Pancakes. There is a restaurant about a minute walk away anytime during the day until sunset with prices being equivalent of $2-3usd, prepared by local Balinese women fresh for your order.

The Neighborhood

WHAT IS CLOSE? FOOD/ MASSAGE/ ART NEARBY? You are living on the Campuhan trail! Walk out your front door, turn left, and in about 60 seconds you will be at a quaint little Cafe called Karsa Kafe where you can sit in a Bale, which is a covered wooden pagoda style building and feed the Koi fish underneath you in the pond. Grab a cold Bingtang Beer or fresh coconut and just watch the intense sunsets over the rice fields, differnet sunset show over rice fields free every night. Or...grab a massage at the brand new Karsa Spa there. Great prices and everything from reiki, sports massage, reflexology, manicures, facials and body scrubs with luxurious baths. There is another spa called Bliss Spa, a short stroll away, a nice fancy restaurant within walking distance, several Art shops, a few egg painters and traditional Balinese paintings are available nearby (as close as next door!) and a silver jewelry store within a few minutes walk. Snacks and drinks are available from several tiny local "shops" up and down the road.

WHO ARE THE NEIGHBORS? The village of Bankiang Sidem is stretched out along the Campuhan trail, made up of mostly Balinese and some expats. It's a secret treasure nestled away with steps down to the river to splash around and admire the temple built at the rivers edge. There are two temples on the trail, a hidden road to stroll down a rarely seen part of the village. Explore up and down the river, scamper over the massive rocks and see how many waterfalls you can find! Walking the trail is a must for every visitor, it is only a 30 minute walk from the doorstep on the top of the ridge to the twin bridges in Ubud. (Where there is a really nice restaurant--named--Bridges!) On this road, you get smiles from everyone, young and old alike. It is just the norm. So make sure you hand out as many as you get. If someone doesn't smile at you here, flash them one and see the massive grin you get back!!

  • the place is amazing! Wonderful view over a jungle like scenario with palm trees and lush rice fields which are glown by lightning bugs at night.
    Stephanie was a great host and we could even use the huge studio kitchen and lounge area.
    it is a 30 min walk to ubud center which is really enjoyable, since you see many things on the way.
    we would come again!

About
Hi there. I fell in love with the Ubud, but more importantly the Campuhan ridge the moment I arrived on it. Its amazing, in the middle of rice fields, hearing water rushing, view of jungle, view of every mountain in Bali---I couldn't ask for more. It feels like hours away from Ubud, but its only 7 minutes to the big grocery store. Five things I cannot live without? Friends, Family, Serenity, Fresh fruit/veggies and Smiles welling up inside of me. Born and raised in Missouri in the states I have become an avid island girl and lived in the US Virgin Islands 13 years. I love adventures, going down unknown roads and paths, road trips and chatting up with strangers who become friends. I can be posh or travel by backpack, I have learned extrememe flexibility in that arena. I do admit I admire the small touches. I am enjoying life as a journey now, not as the destination. I believe that can be an art that takes a lifetime to perfect. I am extremely artistic and have been making jewelry for 15 years now. I'm at the point where I want to design and leave the handwork to other people and just travel and see the world. I love out of the way hidden and secret spots, I enjoy a good bargain, love the concept of bartering in the community and can't stop myself from smiling when I hear children laugh. Love to visit my family back home in the states, I am a very family oriented person and value my close ties tremendously. Live your life at full speed without turn signals. :)
