The space

Villa Manis, Taman Kaja, Ubud, Bali
This quaint, Colonial inspired, fully furnished, designer decorated, one bedroom villa is only a 10 minute walk from the Royal Palace of Ubud and the famous Ubud tourist market. This beautiful villa is ideal for a couple on holiday or a single person on retreat. Conveniently located to great shopping and fabulous restaurants, the villa is only minutes away from Central Ubud. With rice paddy and jungle views, an enclosed garden and shared saltwater pool, the villa is a cozy and comfortable exotic home away from home.

For a different type of holiday away from the big hotels, in a beautiful Balinese village, stay in your own place with a complete kitchen and friendly Balinese staff to take care of you. Take walks through the rice paddies down to town only minutes away.

We can also help arrange additional specialty guided tours with a neighbor driver to visit the local healers and spiritual teachers. The villa is also very close to all types of yoga classes and retreats, Tai Chi, Chi Kung classes and/or Ubud Fitness Gym, as well as some incredible spa experiences. We can even arrange for in house massages by some of the best massage therapists in Ubud as well as hair treatments, foot reflexology, manicures, pedicures, and facials.

The living room and side verandahs overlook the pool with views of the rice paddies, tropical garden and jungle river gorge. Enjoy your breakfast served on the outdoor verandah.

Our staff, Made, Wayan and Dewa will help make your holiday special and relaxing. They will clean the house each day, and also can prepare your breakfast for an additional cost of rp50,000 per person per day. If you don't feel like going out to the restaurants, they will be happy to cook for you at home for an additional cost. Many of the local restaurants also have home delivery. Made is a fabulous cook giving you a traditional Balinese home cooking experience. Wayan will also shop for you at the organic vegetable market and local supermarket to supply the house with your requested foods and drink.

The king size teak Colonial 4 poster bed is very comfortable with lots of cushy pillows, and the ensuite bathroom has a bathtub and open garden shower. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets and frogs, and from your bedroom verandah watch the working ducks and flying cranes in the rice fields, and observe the Balinese children flying their kites.

For an additional charge we can arrange for a car and driver to take you touring or to pick you up at the airport and deliver you to the door. Just give us your details.

I have lived in Bali for 22 years and have tons of experience, contacts and ideas for traveling in Bali and around Asia. So, I can also help to arrange any day trips around Bali to help make your holiday more efficient and fun.

Other things to note

We offer daily coffee, tea, sugar, and bottled water for the entire stay. We also provide a lovely welcome tropical fruit bowl.

What an amazing place to stay in Ubud! Short walk to the main street and many restaurants, shops, and places to visit in town. Walking distance to yoga each morning! The villa itself is breathtaking, beautiful details in the furniture and space. Bedroom is air conditioned, which is a great break from the heat and humidity, as is a dip in the shared pool. I recommend organizing a ride from the airport for initial drop off, as villa entrance is tucked away from roads - very private. Driver Made was also one of the best parts of our trip - he can also drive you to other attractions around town for a reasonable price. We will definitely be back!

It takes a couple of days there to realize what an amazing location it is. It is leisurely 10 to 12 minute stroll downhill to the main street and there are two different routes one can take. There are many interesting businesses on either route and the unique temple facades often hide the true nature of what is behind them. Once on the main street the true wonder of Ubud opens up to all. You don't realize what an amazing location this truly is until you see the shuttles from major hotels, often located far outside of Ubud, bringing in their guests. It is an easy taxi ride back also for minimal charge. Taxis are plentiful in the city centre. I primarily rented this unit so I could do one hour every morning of water aerobics in its small saline pool which is perfect for that workout. When I travel I always take a thermometer to check the water temps and I found this to be an amazing 30 degrees C or 86 degrees F every morning. It was absolutely perfect. We stayed in 2 different rooms and both were outstanding with far more than a visitor would ever need. They were very beautiful and well designed residences and I always had the feeling that I was home. The internet is outstanding and I actually did some work there. I am in the top 10% of reviewers on Trip Advisor and I highly recommend this place to anyone. The proprietor, Mary, and Wayan and other staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations and procurements, such as outstanding wine. The setting is idyllic. It is a beautiful garden setting backing up to a tropical bamboo type forest. It is also very quiet as Ubud has numerous motorcycles but this is far enough from the road to not hear them especially at night to not hear them. Finally, Mary and Wayan have a relationship with an amazing driver, Made Rai, who really made our trip special. He is an extremely kind and exceptionally understanding man who took us on tours of Bali and picked us up and took us to the airport in Denpasar. He is a real jewell of a person and very knowledgeable about the local culture. He lives withing 100 meters of the rooms so he is readily available and his son, Gede, also can help him out and is a very charming young man. The tours we did with Made were some of our greatest experiences as there is so much to see outside of Ubud as well. This is an outstanding place with great people and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Great Location, they made it so easy to get around. not only is it close to shopping, Restaurants and the palace, but they were able to set up a taxi service for the day so we could see other sights in the surrounding area often being gone for the whole day with the driver with very nominal fees. They even had the option for us to have breakfast made each morning for an added charge which were both tasty and made for simple morning, our stomachs were satisfied before even leaving the house with out any fuss or clean up! Very awesome! Bed was comfortable, place was clean and the pool was nice.

Mary and Wayan were excellent hosts and provided us with a great balance between privacy and attentiveness. Whenever we needed anything they were around to help and always super friendly. The property is just as advertised in the photos and a great home base for exploring Ubud.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our staying in the villa Manis. Marry was an wonderful hostess and gave a lot of help and information. The house is very clean and well maintained. And I loved the way Marry decorated the house in colonial fashion. oh, I shouldn't forget to mention about Wayan and Made, the ladies who clean the house and make breakfast. They were really nice and friendly. I would definitely come back to Villa Manis and recommend this place to friends!

Mary's villas look exactly like the photos if its not better. The location is quite , a short walk through rice field is all worth it, because you won't hear motorcycle noise. Cleanness : excellent Wifi: fast speed Mattress : comfy Bathroom: love the outdoor shower Overall, very spacious villas for two person. The driver Made is reliable, he knows the island inside out. He took us to some secret spots that's off the tourist path. We also enjoy the homemade breakfast by Wayan and Nyoman. We will definitely go back!

Me and my partner stayed in Villa Manis for 4 nights and it was our favourite part of our trip to Bali. Wayan was an excellent host, she helped us arrange our pick up with Made (a neighbour who lives close by)and was on hand for anything we needed. We arranged for Wayan to make us breakfast which we recommend others to do :) The villa itself is lovely - it's clean, spacious and has everything you need from clean towels, kitchen items and mosquito nets/repellent. It's a 10 minute walk to the main street that runs through Bali and close to many restaurants and bars. I'd recommend the melting wok for dinner, it was awesome. We decided to enlist the help of Made to pick us up and take us to the villa and he also took us on a one-day tour to temples, waterfalls, rice terraces and the holy water temple. This was a great day and really good value. Made was also available for any lifts we needed and helped us communicate with the company we used to book our mount Batur trek with. Made and Wayan are both great and we would recommend any couple or pair of friends to stay in this villa.
