This villa has it all: Rice field views from the bale and terraces; large tropical gardens; fish ponds; spacious open living; terraces for yoga, meditation and relaxation, a 10 meter pool; sun lounges, multiple lounging areas, dining areas and total privacy.

The Space

Villa Damai is a unique studio-apartment-style bungalow put together with love and care with coolness and comfort in mind. Built on 600 square meters of land, our villa has a large terrace along two sides where you can relax and take in the spectacular manicured tropical gardens, 10m pool, fish ponds, and rice fields. A
perfect haven for either a single or a couple.

The villa consists of a large airy room with a 40ft cathedral ceiling and four ceiling fans. The TV/DVD
area has a large comfortable day-bed to curl up on to watch TV or any of the hundred or so DVDs
provided. The day bed can, of course, be used as an extra bed if required. The bed is a king-size four
poster with mosquito net. The kitchen area is fully-equipped with a four-burner cook top, large fridge/
freezer, and microwave oven. The villa has a large airy bathroom with a beautiful big shower area.
There is a formal six-seat dining suite, a sitting area with two comfortable chairs, and a computer nook
with unlimited Wi-Fi access. All the windows are fly-screened and the villa has large glass sliding doors along the front which can be closed off and locked to the outside world at night. The front gate is also lockable. There is a safe for your valuables.

There is a raised up 4m by 4m Timorese-style balè (gazebo) with a panoramic view over the rice fields. The balѐ has a daybed which is perfect for reading and relaxing, meditating, or for enjoying sundown drinks.

The pool is 10m long and there is an outside shower and toilet for your convenience.

Villa Damai is 200m down a concrete path off Jalan Penestanan Kelod. Its location ensures peace and

privacy while only being a 20min walk (or 5min taxi ride) from Ubud central. There is a diverse range
of restaurants and warungs within walking distance, and most will deliver to your door for a small tip
should you wish to just kick back in the evenings after a busy day. Penestanan has everything you
would need without venturing very far - including spas, massages, artists' studios and galleries, and
there is light entertainment most evenings. (If you like late-night clubbing, however, you will need
to find this in Ubud central). There are a few convenience shops in the area, and a few cosy coffee venues where you can meet fellow travellers over a cappuccino.

Kadek, our jovial room boy, will serve you a most delicious breakfast every morning on the terrace
before cleaning the villa, tidying the garden and balѐ, and looking after the pool and two fishponds
daily.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

Ubud is located 35 km northeast of Bali's International Airport. It is attractive to tourists for a variety of reasons. On a relatively small island with a horde of attractions, Ubud is centrally located, There are plenty reasons why Ubud was voted in recently as the most fascinating city of Asia by Condé Nast Traveler.

The Ubud area is around two to three hundred meters above sea level and surrounded by rice fields, which makes it noticeably cooler than other tourist destinations in Bali. Neighbouring villages are well known for unique bamboo crafts and furniture, wood and stone carving and many other crafts.

Ubud is famous for it's regularly nightly traditional dance performances, which are part of the traditional culture and are arranged for tourists on a regular schedule. Hindu-Balinese ceremonies take place on a nearly daily basis, especially in the European summer, which is the driest and coolest season here.

Ubud is popular in part today because it is the best place in Bali to break out of the tourist mode and get off the beaten path, although far from undiscovered. Hotels are plentiful; home stays and Indonesian guesthouses (losmen) are easily available to the foreign tourist. Many tourists simply base their entire stay here and travel to other destinations from Ubud.

Accommodations in Ubud are also somewhat more reasonably priced than in the beach towns of Bali. But atmosphere is perhaps the major attractions. One visitor summed it up this way: Kuta is madness, Sanur is sterile, and Nusa Dua is culturally isolated; Ubud is the place to go.

Getting around

The villa is only a 20 minute walk from central Ubud or 5 minutes by car. There are lots of drivers available close to the villa.

  • A great setup - good location, very friendly staff and if something goes wrong (my husband got sick) an abundance of help and support from the local Balinese nearby. Eve's Spa nearby was excellent too.

  • This villa is gorgeous. As soon as we arrived we were wow'd by the spacious layout, queen on the main floor with ensuite washroom and an extra toilet in case there is a fight. The upstairs has it's own living area, kitchen space and spacious double bed room with its own bathroom. We realized a little later that the main kitchen was on the main floor in its own shed (which we thought was a tool room). Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. It made backpacking easy. The location is probably a 25 min walk to ubud central but the local shops are just as good. We had a good yoga session at Intuitive which is a walk down a small lane way. Alchemy is probably one of the top eateries out of all the Bali restos I've been too. Wish I had more time to eat there :) communication with Steve was great too prior to arriving and Dewi was helpful too and would come around in the mornings for a clean and breaky.

  • We loved our stay in Villa Timpal Timpal so much!
    It is situated in a very beautiful and special part of Penestenan and we felt at home there immediately.
    The house itself is lovely and Steve and his staff are helpful and hospitable.
    The pool was lovely and the beautiful layout of the separate rooms was perfect for our family to spend time together or have plenty of space to spread out for alone time too.
    The bin tang supermarket had everything we could want within walking distance and the walk there was completely beautiful!
    We highly recommend Villa Timpal Timpal for people wanting to really relax and feel at home in the beautiful surrounds of this amazing island.

  • A beautiful getaway in Ubud! This villa is the perfect place for 4 people. The villa is modern and in perfect condition. We loved the open air for eating and lounging and it was nice to have the air con for the bedrooms. It took us about 10 minutes on motorbikes to get to the downtown of Ubud. Wayan (the caretaker) was always available if we had any needs!

  • It was a food moment for us in Villa Sofia. We enjoyed staying here. The villa was great and Dewi's pancakes marvellous.
    We have to adopt the balinese rythm to enjoy the rest of our trip end become patient...
    Thanks for everything and thank you as well to "Bayu's Kitchen" for their fabulous meals!

  • Steve is a great host and very accessible and easy to deal with. Although my girlfriend decided on another villa, so we did not end up staying in this property, Steve did show us another alternative in his extensive portfolio and offered us a full refund without any hassle. I can highly recommend him if looking for a villa in the area !

    Hi Christian, I sure hope we have a property available that suits your needs next time. I look forward to you staying with us in the future.

  • Villa Nangka is absolutely amazing. It is excellently finished, the bathrooms and showers exceptional, and the pool refreshing and private. This was just the perfect place to hideaway for a few days to recharge.

    Wayan took exceptional care of us during our stay and helped organise scooters and transfers for us. He was absolutely brilliant.

    I will definitely stay here again and cannot recommend Villa Nangka highly enough.

    Hi Ishmael, Thanks for the great review and we look forward to your return next time.

  • A really beautiful villa in a great quiet location only 5 minute taxi from the centre of ubud. Would make the perfect spot for a couple or even two (as sleeping areas can be totally seperated) or those with older children. Not quite so ideal with our younger two children due to the pool 'in the living room', but still gorgeous and worth it. Also located right next to 'Alchemy', and amazing raw food and juice bar - you don't really need to go anywhere at all!
