About this listing
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 (website 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 !!
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.
It was an absolute delight to stay at this villa! In real life it looks even better than as displayed in the pictures. The stylish bedroom with very comfortable bed overlooks the rice fields and in the evening we spotted fireflies from the balcony. In the mornings, after a swim in the pool you can immediately jump into the half-outside shower and have a delicious fresh breakfast that's brought to the villa.
Max is an excellent host: he booked all our activities (the eco biking tour, Bali cooking class, snorkling trip and canyoning tour), suggested the best places to have dinner or see dance performances and he was very easy to contact. His very attentive and friendly staff accomodated to our every need.
We hired Max's scooter to drive into Ubud (15-20 min), it was great fun and the surroundings are beautiful.
We loved our stay here and highly recommend it to anybody!
We found Max and his property to be the perfect start to our Bali trip, complete with the hassle free professional airport pickup The property is definitely even better than you understand from the photos, a full Villa, 2 floors with a a private infinity pool over really beautiful rice paddies (shared with 1 other adjacent villa, although the villa was vacant during our stay). We rented Max's "Scoopy" motor bike which gave us great freedom during the stay. It is a pleasant ride to and around town we definitely appreciated making it back "home" after a day out We also did Max's recommended mountain bike eco-tourism trip which was very enjoyable and educational, nice information to start our trip.
This Villa is awsome!
Max and his Team is more than nice and helped us with everything we needed!
We booked a One Day Trip with nyoman, the driver of max staff and it was more than perfect!
The breakfast was arranged everyday from staff Mina, and she brought us everything we wanted.
A very nice and clean villa!
We arrived Midnight and it wasnt a Problem to pick us up from airport and Show us the Villa! Very hospitality!!
We stayed there for 6 Nights so the Transfer to and from the Villa was included.
I recommend the Villa to everybody who want to Travel to Bali :)
Thanks max for everything!!!
Max was an amazing host. Our check in and check out went without a hitch. He was always available and highly accommodating. The listing itself was absolutely gorgeous. His staff was also very hospitable and lovely.
We had a brilliant time at Villa Lotus - it was absolutely fantastic.
My partner & I stayed here as part of our honeymoon & it's lovely for a romantic getaway.
The villa looks exactly as it does in the photos. It's actually one of two villas next to each other. If you booked both -it would make a great place to getaway with friends as well.
The bedroom was beautiful - big windows and a huge four poster bed & a balcony with a view over the rice paddies.
We loved sitting up there in the afternoon - it was like looking at a living painting.
The infinity pool overlooking the rice paddies is gorgeous -very refreshing.
The breakfast was great- I recommend the banana pancakes - and we both loved the fact that the water at the villa is safe to drink straight from the tap ( and it tasted great)
Max's villa is a bit out of town - but the drive with temples on the roadside and rice paddies is gorgeous.We actually enjoyed being a bit out of Ubud. We hired a scooter from Max which gave us total freedom.
Ubud was nice - but so busy - with tons of traffic.
We also organized a driver a couple of times when we wanted to go out in Ubud for cocktails & dinner and we also ordered takeaway to be delivered - all of which was very easy and cheap to do.
Max was- really - the perfect host. He was quick to respond to emails, sent us detailed information about the villa and made useful suggestions.
Once we arrived - everything we had organized ran like clockwork and Max helped us organize new things as well.
He was very hospitable, always available but at the same time never ever intrusive. It's a delicate balance and Max has it down perfectly.
We are already talking about a trip back to Indonesia - perhaps to Java - but we would definitely make sure to plan a few nights at Max's at the end of our trip.
Highly recommend Villa Lotus- would love to come back!
if you going to this villa with a special other it won't be so remote. However, if you are going alone ask Max to get you a scooter. It only cost 60000 rupiah ($6 AUD) per day and it will only take you 20 minutes to scoot into the centre of Ubud. It will also allow you to see the surrounding areas of Tegalalang.
We had asbolutely fantastic time at Villa Lotus, and Max and his staff were the reason for that. Max was very prompt in responding to emails, and checking on us to help in any which way needed. They also provide a cell phone to use during your stay. Barring the fact that it is a little interior (which is what we wanted, away from the central Ubud), it is very much what you see in the pictures and description.
The Villa is very well done and very very well maintained, with 360 degree views of the rice fields. The infinity pool which almost blends into the fields is amazing! We were served very good breakfast every morning and I miss the coffee very much! Wouldnt stay anywhere else in Bali - highly recommend!!
