About this listing
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 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 !!
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.
I am also available prior to your arrival, via e-mail or phone, to provide general information on Ubud and Bali, travel tips, info on visas, local transportation, tours and activities you might be interested in taking, airport transfers, etc.
Ubud is the cultural and artistic center of Bali, as well as being amazingly beautiful, from a scenic standpoint. Every imaginable tourist activity and convenience is available in Ubud or the surrounding areas. Having lived here since 2009, I am in a great position to help you to enjoy all of what the area offers.
One of the best things about our property is the quiet and somewhat secluded location. We are just a bit off the beaten path, but still with super easy access to Ubud, for shopping, restaurants, activities, and the like. We are only 10 minutes from Ubud by car or scooter, and we have an informal, on demand, shuttle service to and from Ubud. Taxis are also available and can be arranged on short notice to pick you up at the villa and take you anywhere.
We have a scooter that we rent to guests, which provides full independence in terms of transportation needs. We also have 2 bicycles which we rent out, for trips to Ubud or for exploring the surrounding rice fields.
We are a small family run business, and therefore must maintain a strict cancellation policy. If you do have to cancel, and we are able to re-rent the villa, we will certainly provide a refund.
No pets allowed. Smoking is permitted, but only outside.
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.
