You will feel comfortable and happy the moment you set foot in the villa. The villa itself is modern, large and clean. The staff will cater to your every wish. But the best thing is the location; quiet, serene and breathtakingly beautiful.

The space

The property is located in one of the most beautiful parts of one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is surrounded by terraced rice fields, offering stunning views in all directions, including volcanoes (extinct), a mountain range, patches of jungle and the ocean with neighboring islands in the distance. The location is a unique combination of private seclusion and easy access to all the restaurants, shopping and services of Bali's No. 2 tourist destination of Ubud, a mere 6 kms away.

The villa is right in the middle of a sea of rice fields, on a gradual upslope to Mount Batur, a double caldera volcano that offers one of the most breathtaking views on the planet. Mount Agung, the most revered peak in Bali, looms to the northeast. The Central Mountains to the west provide often often spectacular scenes, as the clouds shroud them or the sun sets behind them. You will never tire of the views !!

We offer a full service vacation rental experience, including a healthy and hearty breakfast, swimming pool, satellite flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, daily maid service and many other amenities.

We have nothing but glowing reviews of our villas and services. You can find us listed at (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) listing 305814, where you can read the many reviews from past guests.

Your Surroundings: You will have the opportunity to watch the surrounding rice fields being worked, with each time of year offering something special, from the reflecting ponds just prior to planting, to the gentle swaying of the yellowing rice before harvest. Our garden has many exotic plants and flowers, some of which you can pick for cut flower arrangements in the house. Butterflies will entertain you during the day and fireflies will enchant you at night. You may never want to leave the confines of our little paradise.

Close By: There are at least a dozen major tourist attractions within an hour's drive. Some of the most photographed of Bali's rice fields are only 3 km away, and Ubud offers a wide array of cultural and artistic attractions, including more art galleries and shops per square kilometer than New York or London. The ocean is about 25km away, while the tourist meccas of Kuta and Seminyak are about 35km from Ubud. The airport for Bali is 40km from Ubud, but a taxi will cost you only about the equivalent of $25 US, depending on your bargaining skills. We can help arrange your airport transfers, local transport or vehicle rental needs.

Whether you are coming to Ubud for one of its well known events, such as Bali Spirit Festival or the Readers and Writers Festival, to hone your yoga or meditation skills, or just to relax and enjoy the magical atmosphere, staying at Villa Lotus will only enhance your experience. We guarantee a wonderful time here !!

Guest access

Our guests have access to the entire villa and the pool, as well as pool deck and very small garden area. There is a larger garden which belongs to our house, but you are welcome to use that anytime.

Interaction with guests

As your host, I will be available during your stay to help coordinate the staff, so your every need is well taken care of, as well as being available to provide tips, make activity bookings, dinner reservations, arrange in house (in villa) massages, etc.

We had a good experience staying at Max's villa for several days. The villa is out of the way, located in the middle of rice paddies several miles from Ubud, but we were looking for that. You can rent a scooter, or even run the roads from the house to explore the rural communities where I think the more authentic Ubud experience still exists. The villa is great - its clean, well appointed and great to spend some peaceful time in. Max - the owner and manager - is a good communicator, very detailed/organized and extremely proficient at arranging transport as well as activities. He will email a list of outside tour vendors that he recommends, and we had good experiences with the ones that we used. The villa-related services arranged through Max seem to be priced reasonably when compared to arranging them privately. However, the prices for those services are also not listed in the welcome book or airbnb website so it may be helpful to ask for updated pricing as they may have have changed from what prior reviews noted (cab ride was 80-130k each way, scooter is 80k/day, etc). Overall, it felt less like typical Airbnb experiences and more like an individually managed resort-villa.

If you're looking for Bali with a difference I would recommend Max's place. My husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel to quite a few places over the last few years and we try a great deal to look for a more unique experience, away from the typical place you find the majority of people. The location of the property means fully intaking the padi fields, which are stunning. The villa is very spacious and has all the necessary amenities. I would recommend this property for couples. It allows you to explore be Balinese countryside as well as Ubud being accessible.

Absolutely beautiful villa on the outskirts of Ubud. If you're looking for peace and serenity among the rice fields of central Bali this is the place for you. The shared pool and surrounding views are stunning. Villa is too long of a walk into central Ubud for most plan on hiring a taxi or renting a scooter to get into town. The complimentary breakfast was delicious & the staff was exemplary. Nyoman, the driver who took us around to temples etc, was a great soul and we genuinely enjoyed his company. He left an impression on us that will last a lifetime. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed in the beautiful Villa Lotus and loved it! Max greeted us on arrival and shortly after, we each had an amazing massage from Koko. If you stay here, make sure you book in with Koko. It was the best massage either of us have had in years! My wife has constant neck pain, which was relieved after just one massage. She really is the best! Max was great at communicating with us and had all our trips and activities planned well before our stay. The villa is comfortable and clean with loads of space. The bedroom is beautiful with the four poster bed that has netting to help keep out the insects. The balcony provided a view over the rice fields and a relaxing spot to unwind. The location is so beautiful, calming & a great escape from the hustle & bustle. We fell asleep each night listening to the frogs & looking out at the stars from the bed. The villa is around 15 minutes from central Ubud so the house phone came in handy to arrange drivers to go out during the day or for dinner. We did order take away from the local eatery & they delivered to us, which was awesome as one evening we were too tired to go out. Thanks Max & staff for a wonderful stay. Hope to come back one day!

The villa was beautiful and secluded. The perfect place for a nice getaway! I cannot say enough how incredible the service was. Max went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of from the day we booked until departure. He scheduled all of our activities for us. Only problem is I wish I would had had more time in Bali! Thanks Max!

Max Villa is amazing! The villa looks as beautiful as on the pictures and is very chic. In contrary to the center of Ubud, the location is really quiet in the middle of the rice fields. Some really nice warungs and cafes can be reached easily by scooter. Also the center of Ubud is only a 20 minutes ride (we are slow and careful drivers) away. Since the villa is located in the rice field, there are some insects around, which didn't really bother us. Just some wildlife :-) The mosquito net in the bedroom is intact and protects at night. Max is very helpful with bookings of tours. We would recommend everyone the cooking class as well as the sunrise trekking to Mt. Batur!

Max has a gorgeous place. There are 2 villas (we stayed in Bamboo. There is another called Lotus). It's more than what the pictures say. Morning views from the bed and the balcony are fabulous. It's what is exactly what me and my wife was looking for. It's 20+ minutes ride from the Ubud Center. This is fine if u have a scooter or a car with u or u can always call a cab. I had hired a car through Max for 200k for 3 hours when I went to Ubud. The pool is really deep and looks over the paddy fields. But since its surrounded by a lot of trees, some leaves etc fall in the pool. This should be cleaned more frequently. The pool is shared by the 2 villas. The breakfast is basic. But you can order food from Ubud Restaurants and they deliver. The villa staff are friendly as is usual for most of Bali but they are better than most places in regards to speaking English. The Massage (given by Koko) is heavenly and very proffessional. She knows her stuff. One piece of advice, pls go through the welcome book first before ordering or planning anything including rides and massages. I felt, the 2 story villa and the pool are not convenient for children or old people, but if you want to soak up Bali and spend some quality time with your loved one in Peace and Quiet, I would recommend it. I really wanted to experience a sunset from the villa but were unlucky with the rain. I cannot describe how beautiful the early morning view is from the the balcony upstairs. You have to experience it.

Response from Max:
Hi Solaiman and readers, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We loved having you here and hope to see you again one day. I just wanted to correct one thing. We are located only 6 km north of Ubud and it takes 10 minutes by car to get to Ubud Center, at most. On my motorcycle, I make the trip in even less time than that. I just wanted to point this out, because the trip to Ubud is not only quite short, it is very beautiful as well. Cheers, Max

I have been running this small bed and breakfast business for 5 years now. I live on the same property with my 7 year old son, but our house is almost 50 meters from the villa. My staff and I are very committed to making sure our guests have a great stay with us, as well as a wonderful Bali experience.

Before moving to Bali, I was a lawyer in Canada. I also did high speed photography of liquids in motion, and until recently, had a Gallery displaying my work here in Ubud. I have always enjoyed traveling and Bali was one of my favorite travel destinations. Now it is home.

I still enjoy photography, as well as yoga and motorcycles.
