About this listing
A charming tropical room in the country side. Near the volcano Kintamani and just off Ubud, the cool temperature is a good getaway from the congested south. Let the mountain air rejuvenate your spirit!
This Balinese themed room is the highest room in the retreat, three floors up and at the edge of the valley. Makes for a breathtaking view to the hill across. Best for bird watching because you are the same height as the treetops!
Private hall and balcony.
Shared spring water pool.
The pool has no chlorine, spring water.
Interaction with Guests
We have villa staff to attend to your needs. Occasionally i will be there too.
Nestled within the area’s coffee plantations, we have a mountain high altitude climate with night time temperatures averaging from 20-25 degrees Celsius. The air here is fresh, and the lush greenery makes for a great retreat away from the city.

I must say we really had an enjoyable time at the villa despite having Nyepi in between. The hospitality was great and Jay and his co-workers were most helpful in helping us coordinate our activities and transportation needs. Food was also good. However, what we felt could be improved upon is the cleanliness of the rooms. We actually came back with bugs bite which we believed were a result of the linen be it those in the bedroom or at the balconies. The coffee machines and water dispenser could also do with some cleaning and maintenance. Overall the experience was positive.
Thank you for your feedback.
In response to the bed bug bites, I'm happy and relieved to inform our villa is totally free of any bed bugs. The people who were in the Bali Room after you are all OK and free of bites of any kinds.
I suspect the bites you had were probably from the seasonal gnats and small flies when we went to watch the fireworks during Nyepi. Hope it didn't bother you too much. Our recommendation for these kinds of insect bites are warm green tea solution and aloe vera gel.
Keep well and see you again in June.
Lovely views and lovely staff. Great for relaxation and destressing One of the best villas we've stayed in Bali!
Their rooms are big and clean with all necessities provided. will be back soon!
Regret not stay longer this time but we will come back, highly recommend to anybody, honest!
We travel 6 days in Bali but what we remember the most is everything related to this villa. We stay in another villa at Umalas like living a box with fence in the first 4 days :( Luckly for us, in the last 2 day at this villa, we have what we expect in Bali: intensive relax in quiet jungle, enjoy delicous Balinese foods cooked by staff, experiencing local life & excursions to the nearby villages/temples and lastly but very important: super hospitality from Graeme & his staff.
We have friendly chat/drinks over nights. They help to organize Birthday Party at villa with lovely custumes and cake. We rent staff bike to tour neighbor villages. Very useful team and it saves lot of money as well.
What I love here the most: each room has each own architecture with Balinese deco items, a big space in front of our bed room to overlook the valley. All of them are well set up by professional & experienced architect. We will contact you when get back Bali

About the Host, Jay
I'm all about being with nature and the elements and anything you can learn from YouTube I try to put into effect at the villa.
I travelled a lot last time and now it's my time to play host. I'm a bit of a would be hippie minus the meditation and yoga. But life is sweet in Tampaksiring and the view from the villa is meditation enough for me.
All are welcomed in my villa to share life experiences and trade stories of life experiences, success, failures. the whole nine yards.
See you in Tampaksiring and if not, still, try to enjoy Bali. It's a wonderful place and everyone must experience it at least once.
