Villa Shanti Om is a luxury villa set in a complex called Villa Nirvana. it is located in the artists village of Penestanan, a haven of tranquility in Ubud, the cultural, artistic and spiritual capital of Bali. It is secluded and surrounded by lush greenery, yet is just a 15 minute walk from the centre of town. Villa Shanti Om has an en suite bathroom with a full bath, airconditioning and TV. Its pool is a few steps away from the bedroom.
The Villa Nirvana complex comprises six villas in all (each can sleep 2), and three private pools. Friendly staff , free wifi and a fabulous restaurant overlooking a gorge make this probably one of the best deals you can find in Ubud. There are picturesque walks nearby (check out the pics) and the cutest new age village you'll see No cars are allowed in the immediate vicinity, so it's super-quiet. But we have golf buggies to ferry you around.
If you want to do yoga, there's a studio a 3 minute walk away that offers classes by the hour. Or you can do it in Villa Nirvana itself - there is space for yoga groups of upto 16.
You can also have massages every day.
Airport pickup and drop off is available. Tours around Bali (with driver) can also be arranged. If you happen to be in Ubud already, come and check it out. If you can't stay overnight, have a meal or a drink at the restaurant and enjoy the view of the forest and the gorge.
Room prices include government tax of 11 percent and service charge of 10 percent, and breakfast.
Two to a room is normal, but we can provide an extra bed for a third at a nominal charge of US$15.
Normally check-in is after 2 pm and check-out is by 12 noon, but we can be flexible about this to accommodate to flight timings if there are no other bookings for your room that day. Guests are welcome to bring in food and drinks from the outside - but we highly recommend the in house River Cafe, which is hard to beat for either quality or price. Airport pickup and drop off is available at Rupiah 250,000 (about US$30) each way. Transport is also available for city tours and sightseeing. Bicycles and motorcycles can be hired. Pets are not allowed on the property.
Our stay in shanti Om within Villa Nirvana complex was absolute 5 star. From my initial enquiry through to check out I cannot fault the service, facilities and experience as a whole. And really reasonably priced for what you get. It really is an oasis. We travelled with our 2yr old daughter and they supplied a cot and high hair free of charge. The location is just a short scenic walk to the main road to town but it's private and quiet. Gardens were stunning. We loved our villa and private pool which have us flexibility to chill out while our daughter was napping without being stuck in a hotel room. We originally enquired about the smaller villa which was booked but Vee offered us this villa at a special rate and we are so glad we took the offer. Staff are great and we felt very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We were sad to leave and will definitely be back for our next visit to Bali.

Hello, I'm a writer and I own Villa Nirvana, which is a boutique hotel in Bali. It is professionally managed (I could never do it myself!) and the team, led by seasoned hotelier Dean, does a fabulous job . I like meeting people who have a love of life and great stories, wherever they might come from . I travel moderately myself, preferring to stay in small boutique-type establishments that have a unique charm, rather than the conventional five star chains.
I don't live in Bali, so I will not personally be your host at Villa Nirvana - though I'll be lucky to be visiting while you're there. But the staff are wonderful and will treat you like family - check out the site for what other guests have had to say. Hope you do go and have a great stay.
My life motto: we're here to learn about ourselves, through our lives and the lives of others.
