About this listing
We have created this unique accommodation with an eye towards eco living crafted by local artisans. Tucked away down a foot path amongst the secluded magical rice fields of bali we are just a short walk to central Ubud but a world away.
This space has been carefully designed and crafted. Each element tells a story. If you look around you will find recycled and repurposed materials from all over Indonesia. The hand crafted spiral staircase is made of steal from the hull off a boat. The posts that hold up the ceiling once were the masts of ships that sailed around Kalimantan. The wood on the deck was formerly a bridge in borneo for two decades. The stunning chandelier in the living area is made of over 50 recycled wine bottles. Similarly the countertops are a terazzo of crushed recycled glass.
We believe we have created a space that combines modern design with bohemian rustic styles and recycled elements. We have sourced the best local craftsman to incorporate all that is bali bringing the outdoors in letting you enjoy outdoor bali living in style.
The room has two queen beds one upstairs in a loft space so is great for families or friends traveling together.
We have a full staff that care for you while you are here.
We have a full kitchen as well as a full menu. Lunch and dinner are communal affairs with a family style dinner every night of ethical food sourced from mostly local sustainable ingredients. This is an opportunity to enjoy the fireflies while you dine and get to know those around you.
We are also happy to arrange a massage with our in house masseuse or help organize transportation or tours.
Interaction with Guests
We are here for you if you need us. Staff is on site at all times till around 10:00pm
We are just a short walk to central Ubud but couldn't be more secluded. This is the best of real bali. You will see farmers tending to the rice, you will see traditional ceremonies and hear the sound of the temple floating thru the night sky. We are down a foot path and lost from the city despite being just minutes away.
You can walk to town in five minutes or we are happy to rent you a scooter or arrange a driver for longer excursions.
Other Things to Note
Please know that this is not your average hotel. This is a unique experience that may not be for everyone. We have created a space that is at one with the outdoors. Our bathrooms are all open air and the living dining room is as well. Additionally you must hike in to reach us. This may not be your cup of tea. But if it is we think we offer something very unique that you will not find elsewhere.
We offer a full service experience with all the amenities and all the adventure. We invite you to enjoy the unique experience of sleeping open in nature while you are here. This includes as some reviewers have noted hiking in on a traditional Balinese foot path in the rice fields. We provide flashlights to all our guests and always have someone to greet you at the road carry your luggage and escort you in regardless of when you arrive.
We are located in the rice-fields and because of this you should expect to see lizards and dragonflys and other such bits of nature. This is part of the experience of staying here and we hope you enjoy it. Because of the proximity to rice-fields we have a very important member of our staff that ensures the villa is mice free. She is a cat. She works for her food and does a fantastic job. You would not be happy with the critters that were there with out her great assistance. She is sweet and friendly and will say hi. This said if you don't like cats or are not ready for all that nature entails, this is probably not the place for you.
breakfast is included in your stay. it is Delicious vegetarian and different every day. If you are vegan or have other special dietary needs we are happy to accommodate your needs but as they are outside our daily routine we will ask that you pay an additional $3 per day for a custom meal.
Respect everything and enjoy the space, be friendly to the neighbors and ask if you are not sure. No smoking is allowed in the house.
We are a friendly team that work together to give you the best experience possible. We are happy to help you get settled or to give you tips on good places to see while you are here.
