“Paradise. Harvest Moon is one of those rare finds” - Guest Comment
Designed by our high-end fashion design team from Holland who came to Bali for a quieter life, staying at Harvest Moon is like living in a magazine.
Harvest Moon comes with wifi, towels, a full kitchen, pool, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an outdoor bale with a third double bed. Donna Karen-inspired handmade furniture, sumptuous lighting by DeLighting, quiet, friendly staff and an onsite manager are also here to help you relax. They also make the freshest breakfast in town.
You’ll want to note that only the master bedroom has airconditioning. The huge suite upstairs has traditionally thatched alung-alung roof and catches a gentle breeze as you sleep peacefully beneath the tailored mosquito net. Or use the fans to keep yourself cool.
The cosy outdoor 'bale' (pronounced bah-lay) which doubles as an inviting day bed for lounging and an intimate extra bedroom for al-fresco sleeping at night.
The staff cook you breakfast and make fresh coffee every morning in your modern kitchen on Modena stovetops. Bowls of fresh fruit and clean drinking water keep you going while you decide whether to spend the day by your private pool, lounge at the communal lap pool or head to Ubud for shopping, yoga or exploring the markets and temples.
On your return enjoy the cool evening air and appreciate the mood created by DeLighting’s lamps and feature lights. Relax on the day bed, the lounge or upstairs on the couch while you plan the evening’s activities or return to your book and wait for home delivery from many of the world class cafes in Ubud.
Nannys, recommendations for massage, yoga classes and other modalities, motorbikes, cars with drivers and tourist information is all available on request. If there's more you want then just ask!
Everything is available for you at Harvest Moon. Book now before someone else takes the dates! We’ve had guests who book Harvest Moon before their plane tickets - make sure you get your dates now. We look forward to welcoming you.
We've also been featured in a design blog and a model shoot.
The silver boxes you'll see at Harvest Moon were featured in a model shoot done on location.
And Ashley Muir Bruhn, a NY blogger who writes a design and lifestyle blog called Hither and Thither stayed at Harvest Moon in early 2013 and was blown away. Search for “hitherandthither welcome-to-ubud” to see what she has to say about travelling with her husband and her newly born son.
Every part of Harvest Moon is yours to enjoy. There's also a 14m lap pool with a deck and lounge chairs in the communal area with a kiddy splash pool and a shady outdoor hut to watch your children while relaxing in style.
Interaction with guests
Aristya is our onsite manager. You'll probably hear from him before you arrive via email. He is an experienced tour guide and knows the sights and special places of Ubud better than anyone.
Ask him about a massage or a cooking class!
Other things to note
Dogs are common everywhere in Bali, and the compound where we live is no exception! Our designer loves animals to the extent that she and her husband would rescue frogs from the pool when Harvest Moon was being built. They have several dogs that they have adopted and cared for. They are friendly and the little yellow collars they wear signify that they have been given their shots.
Bali lies in the tropics which is why it is so warm and lush. Our villa is designed to blend with the natural environment which means that
- we don't need much air conditioning as the open style captures natural breezes
- high ceilings and our traditional roofing keep the villa cool
- large ceiling fans also maintain the breeze
Because we are close to the rice fields and the healthy ecosystem of Bali you will notice tiny geckos which make a cute "gek-ko" sound. Our ponds are full of fish and the occasional small frog, Please understand that the tropics are always full of little creatures, and if this is likely to bother you you should consider a resort where they choose to spray their entire grounds to remove all the insects.
Since we are also in a rural area, seasonal noises from the field from rice farming and local temples may carry across the fields. This is the paradox of visiting Bali - it’s a growing mix of modern and ancient which the Balinese themselves manage with a gentle and effortless smile. We trust you’ll experience this same attitude of gratitude to life that embodies the spiritual approach of the Balinese. It’s really what makes this island special.
The first rule is you must relax. After that everything else will take care of itself.
We don't advise smoking inside because the roof is a traditional alung-alung roof made of thatch. Thatch and fire don't mix well with houses. So we've installed mosquito repellants which work from the powerpoints and also ask you to refrain from burning candles.
There are other villas nearby all lovingly designed by the same architect. So we keep things quiet after 10pm and before 8am in the morning. You'll be so absorbed by the evening stars and the cool morning light you'll feel like it's the perfect way to be anyway.
And there are a few dogs which share the grounds with us. They have been adopted by the architect (who loves animals). They are well treated, fully vaccinated and definitely don't bite. As Bali dogs go they live like kings (and children love them).
Other than that my only request is that you treat my house like your own. It's a special place. I know you're going to love it :)

As a psychotherapist, specialising in children's palliative care, I easily value the beautiful things in my life; family, friends, music, travel and of course Ubud, Bali. AirBnB chose these villas for their global campaign which was a wonderful honour and testimony to the beauty of Desa Bulan and it's Moon Villas: River Moon, Harvest Moon, Summer Moon.
