This is not just a ‘ordinary’ villa, but a unique ‘Art villa’, designed and created with love by the Balinese owner and architect Pak Rai. Born and raised in Ubud, he studied architecture in Denpasar. For months he spend time on his land, meditating, making thousands of drawings, contemplating how he could make the best designs on his family ground. Pak Rai blends Western and Eastern influences in his creations and uses a mix of natural materials: riverstone, different woods and terrazzo stone. The house is built in harmony with nature: making use of the open view, the natural light and the river flowing below.

Away from the hustle and bustle, and yet walking distance from supermarkets, restaurants and spas. This "Villa Taro'" is located around one hundred meters behind the Taro Gallery on Jalan Sangingan in Ubud. It is just a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Ubud. Within a minute’s walk you can have a choice of Mexican, Japanese or Indonesian food. Or you can choose to walk in the ricefields in front of the villa, and have a beautiful walk to Penestanan village for local restaurants within the ricefields. Bali Spa Botanica is our neighbour, so if you want to relax massage or do a day spa, it is ony a few steps away..
Only few minutes drive from city centre of Ubud. Walking also possible: just walk down the main road ( Jalan Sanginan) , cross the big Champuan Bridge and you 'll find the centre after 20 minutes. ( Lists and maps how to get around are available in the house)

I am a freelance journalist and filmmaker from Amsterdam. Travelling around the world. Most especially between Amsterdam ( for citylife) and Bali ( for peace and nature) . I fell in love with Bali 10 years ago, and love the magic of this island.. I love to read, do photography, yoga, and exploring healthy lifestyles. And meeting people all over the world and know what drives them.. Love to make you feel home in Bali, "the island of the Gods".
