Villa Shanti is a premium villa in a complex called Villa Nirvana. It is located in the artists village of Penestanan in Ubud, the cultural, artistic and spiritual capital of Bali. It has its own ensuite bathroom with a rainshower, and shares a pool with another villa. But if there is no occupant there, the pool is all yours.
The villa is part of a complex called Villa Nirvana. 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. Villa Shanti has an ensuite Balinese-style outdoor bathroom with a rainshower. It also has airconditioning, cable TV and wireless wifi.
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.
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.
I booked and paid for my reservation, which was cancelled at the last minute and NOT refunded.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Nirvana and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is set back away from the hustle and bustle of central Ubud but close enough to get a short taxi ride to the Campuhan steps or walk. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. We stayed at Villa Shanti which was very clean, comfortable and well designed. We would definitely recommend staying here again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
