About this listing
Villa Prema Sari is a luxury villa 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. No cars are allowed in the immediate vicinity, so it's super-quiet. But we have golf buggies to ferry you and your luggage. The villa has an ensuite outdoor Balinese style bathroom with a full bath. It also has a mini bar, airconditioning, cable TV and free wireless wifi.
Villa Nirvana comprises six villas in all (each can sleep 2), and three private pools. Friendly staff 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.
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 no charge.
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.

About the Host, Vee
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.
