About this listing
Welcome to "VILLA DHYAN" located on the famous ridge of the Ayung River. The view from us is one of the best in the whole area and gives you the impression of living in paradise. The traditional architecture provides an authentic BALI experience.
**Till May 31, only 1 villa for 2 person is available**
The VILLA was renovated and got a new bungalow in 2010 and is maintained very well by our experienced staff of 3 which is working for more than 20 years for us.
We have 3 bedrooms in the separate houses: The "Main House", the "Bungalow" and "The Studio house", and take max 6 adults (a child or teenager can be hosted additional when requested).
Each house has a queen bed and its own bathroom. The studio bed can be set as twin beds . If you book 2 rooms, please choose two rooms when booking.

We had a fantastic stay at the villa, it was a perfect location to base ourselves for exploring Ubud and doing cycling and rafting nearby. Afterwards it was great to relax in the pool or in the lounges and enjoy the peacefulness and view, sipping on a beer or two.
We really enjoyed the villas.
The view and service was exceptional.
The discounted rafting is highly recommended.
The location is a bit out of town - but that is a plus because it is not within an overly tourist location.
Just a note: it is three separate villas of different standards / styles. The third is not as desirable as the first 2.
This is great country side living in Ubud. We had 4 adults, 3 little children (4, 6, and 9 years old) traveling together. There are 3 different houses in the property and it is perfect for 3 different couples or adults. Since we had 3 little children, we had a hard time figuring out the bedding situation. (kids cannot stay in a villa by themselves without adult) but it worked out nicely. The middle villa was not as nice as the other two villa's, but the views and living area was better.
Nice view, calm country setting. Clean room, delicious food.
Lots of wonderful bugs, which make my 4 year old son happy beyond belief. We saw giant lizards, which was so cool!
It is a remote place, so you have to hire the villa's private driver for additional cost or find your own etc.. The driver is a very nice guy and fun to drive with. If you like shopping, I recommend to stay in town or just take daily trips via driver which is 15m away by car. (We do not like shopping, so it was perfect for us. )
We ventured out and did the owner's recommended whitewater rafting and I have to say, I think we got the best deal on island because of them.
We did 60th birthday party celebration, and the food was great!!! They are great chefs! They made traditional food of our request (we just pick whatever we want to eat from Balinese food books) and they also baked delicious mango pie! All made from scratch.
They prepare the food for you for free, but you will be charged for the ingredients. They will go shopping for you, which was nice. We never ate so much good Mango!
They also prepared traditional Balinese decoration, which was made of natural vines, leaves, and flowers. It was so beautiful, and the cost for the decoration was so minimal. It was worth doing that!
Thank you, Sachiko for hosting us. It was such a precious memory.
Erwartet hatten wir uns eine aussergewöhnliches Unterkunftserlebnis ..
und wurden nicht enttäuscht. Es war grandios!
Im Haupthaus haben wir uns wie in einem Vogelnest gefühlt, da der Ausblick phantastisch war. Unsere Tochter bewohnte den Bungalow, der an Größe und Komfort leider gar nicht ausgenutzt werden konnte.
Von den sehr lieben und guten Geistern wurden wir bestens und unaufdringlich umsorgt. Bei Fragen jeder Art waren sie uns stets eine große Hilfe.
Wir hatten nie das Bedürfnis abends Essen zu gehen, da unsere Wunschgerichte, die wir morgens im Kochbuch aussuchen konnten, immer auf dem Tisch standen - einfach genial und sehr gemütlich!
Auch an Sauberkeit gab es gar nichts zu bemängeln!!!
Nach vier Tagen fiel uns der Abschied von der Villa Dhyan wirklich schwer - sollten wir wieder nach Ubud kommen, werden wir auf jeden Fall wieder dort übernachten wollen!!!
We came Bali looking for a place to relax. Villa Dahyana was just the right place for that. The rooms are great, with cold a/c and comfortable beds. The views from the villa are amazing...we stayed in most mornings just taking in the landscape (you can see all the jungle from the dining room and outdoor living room!!! Craazzyy cool!!). The house staff is fantastic! Wayun our driver was very nice and knowledgeable. I really recommend you stay away from outside restaurants...instead, ask the house cook to make all meals for you, she is a fantastic cook (try the smoky duck, my favorite). The house comes with wifi, but dont plan to stream video or anything, wifi in bali is pretty slow everywhere. We will definitely be coming back to this wonderful villa, thanks for a great experience!!!

About the Host, Sachiko
My husband Peter DITTMAR and I live in Sydney and in Bali. Bali is our second HOME and my husbands STUDIO since more than 30 years. He is a well know artist painter working international. The place gives him spirits and energy for the creative work. We have a Balinese partner from a high cast family. The VILLA was renovated and got a new bungalow in 2010 and is maintained very well by our experienced staff which is working for more than 20 years for us.
We both like travelling and also reading, golf and meditation.
It's the center of our life.
We are happy to share our house in Sayan-Ubud, which is one of the best spots in Bali for your private and quiet holiday. You will stay in an unforgettable place!
