About This Listing
The Ubud Bali Lotus Combo Suite is a two room bedroom with two beds and an adjoining door free hallway. The suite is private and has it's very own bathroom. One bedroom has sliding doors which open onto the front fish pond area.
This is a two bedroom, 2010 built, suite located in downtown Ubud Bali. Super-close walking distance to the dancing events and restaurants in Peliatan at night, a 50 foot pure stone pool to swim in during the day. Walking on marble floors inside or the shaded garden outside you are secluded yet close to the action and charm only Ubud has to offer. Amazing for a single person or couple. Perfect for a family get-together or group retreat. Make your visit for two weeks or a year. If extra rooms are needed the Villa has accommodations for a grand total of eight with two in each bed. The Villa is just about 7023 square feet total.
Many of our guests will do a quick nine minute walk over for classes at the Yoga Barn. Little reflexology shops do a great hour long foot massage nearby or have our professional Bali masseuse come by when ever you want for a great one hour Balinese full body massage in your room or poolside. All the choices are yours.
We have so many amazing stories of folks getting here and extending their stay due to how nice they feel it is. They just don't want to leave! Truly this is our best complement and lets us know we have done things right.
One of the great aspects here is that everything can be done with a reasonable budget in mind.This has allowed many guests to enjoy long four to six month stays. Many of our long-term health conscious guests found going out and finding super-healthy food and making it at home was the ticket. If you don't feel like cooking and don't want to go out there are a great choice of quality delivery options available.
The Villa is really all about choices and options! You just choose as you go, so there's no need to worry about stuff now.
The best part is you have a clean, quiet and safe home to stay at while your on the Island. You can make your visit really any type of visit you want. Some make it an art purchasing trip, some make it a cloths purchasing vacation while others are getting into that special authentic dancing and music only found on the Island of Bali. Some guests have made a food tour of the Island!
If just spending peaceful quality time by yourself or with loved ones, you'll not find a better location.
Hanging out reading at the pool has also been popular. Really you decide to make your trip as adventurous or relaxing as you want, all without the busy traffic of staying in an expensive crowded hotel. Days and Nights are quiet and peaceful with only the sounds of the birds around. If it does get too quiet, live music is always being played at a small outdoor club in quaint downtown Ubud minutes away!
Transportation is available directly from the Villa any day for daily adventure scenic drives to any location on the Island. Up to five can enjoy the day together in a new fully air-conditioned tour-van at a super price of $50 usd a day! He is always right on time too!
With many thoughtful design elements there are truly no rooms in Ubud like these. We welcome you to make this Island home your home.
Our housekeeper is a wonderful cook making much of the local dishes for our guests. Seven days-a-week from 8am until 4pm we have great local culinary delights. From a simple Balinese Vegetable Omelet with Potatoes on the side for breakfast, to exotic spicy Sumatra food for lunch or dinner, the choices are truly fantastic. The Chicken Curry with Potatoes is some of the best I have had in competition with many of the finer restaurants in downtown Ubud. The list of exciting authentic dishes to try is staggering. The addition of local spices can be dialed in also, making the food perfect for any one palette. We are also really into obtaining much of the local fruit on a daily basis. There are unique ripe Green Oranges, Mini Pineapples and a choice at times of twenty different variations of local Bananas. Purple Mangosteen is a wonderful and super healthy fruit to try here on the Island. The local traditional market across the street typically has a wide selection of these wonderful fruit items for our housekeeper to buy for you every morning.
It does not get any better than this.
A healthy diet here at the Villa is both cost effective and fun. Local Red and White Dragon Fruit, Snake Fruit and Star Fruit are in season and obtainable a good portion of the year. We have also planted many exotic fruit trees on the property.
The dinning process is actually pretty simple for our guests. You make food choices for the day and the ingredients are purchased fresh for you that morning. You pay just the local prices for the food plus a small tip for the chief. The process results in a win-win situation providing exciting ways to experience the local traditional food in high quality with prices even better than even the local low-cost restaurants. Dinning in is super easy and cost effective as well as super healthy. Truly this is one of the greatest additions to the lifestyle at the Villa and providing an educational and unique dinning moment at home if you decide not to go out.
All and all we feel we are offering a very flexible and complete Bali experience, perfect for folks new to the Island or the seasoned return guest. We welcome you to enjoy some of the best Bali Island has to offer. Let us know what your needs are, and we will do our best to accommodate your stay.
Other Things to Note
We do have two very small and friendly dogs. You may see them on occasion.
The house rules are really simple and reflect the easy going lifestyle here. No smoking inside is the one rule but every room has one or two outside decks.
Such a lovely place to stay. Very nice and helpful hosts. Clean and nice room. Super
nice garden andpool area. Close to Yoga Barn but quiet area.
I stayed at Sak Ming and Greg's house for over a month and a half so I had the chance to really get to know the neighborhood and some of the locals living around the area. The hosts are lovely people, always willing to help; and Dayu one of the house assistants is also very helpful, she would help me prepare my breakfast in the mornings, and even fill up the tank of the motorbike I rented. The house has a beautiful view and is very close to yoga barn and to the main area of Ubud, which is very convenient, but far away enough from the street noise.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2-month stay in Ubud at Greg and Sak Ming’s beautiful home. They have created an oasis amid the bustle of Ubud. For us it was the perfect combination of close to everything we needed, with the quiet of a residential neighborhood. In the morning we had coffee on our small terrace overlooking the water garden. In the afternoon, we swam or read on a lounge by the pool, and enjoyed the tropical garden and strip of bamboo forest bordering the property.
Theirs is a new and modern home in their family compound in a charming neighborhood of Peliatan. Our 2 personal rooms were decorated with lovely antique Balinese furniture and original art. Our en suite bathroom was a very elegant space. We shared the kitchen and formal living room and a large second floor terrace.
Greg and Sak Ming are great hosts, kind and extremely knowledgeable about Ubud and Bali. They gave us great tips, and helped us if we needed anything. Greg even took us on a neighborhood tour to show us the most interesting shops and restaurants – even the best sari store.
Their housekeeper Daiyu, is a lovely person, and a very good cook. Her satay was the best we had in Bali. She, and they, took very good care of us.
We can recommend staying with Greg and Sak Ming. The good location allowed us to walk nearly everywhere in central Ubud, and from the comfort of their home we were able to travel out to explore Bali.
Very nice stay in a quiet part of Ubud, at a walking distance of the main places such as yoga barn. I also enjoyed the pool, beatiful and refreshing at the bottom of a nice garden.Both Greg and Sak Ming available if needed.Greg took me to a walk in the neighbouroud. I recommend the place.
I had a very comfortable 1 month stay in this house while I was spending a month exploring Bali and doing yoga. The room is very spacious - there is a back area with a 'night bed' and small wardrobe, the gorgeous bathroom (as in pics) and a front area with a 'day bed' and TV overlooking the garden. Both beds were very comfortable!
The kitchen is right outside the bedroom and is well equipped. Fridge, stove, oven-microwave, drinking water dispenser, plates, cutlery, pots, etc. are all available for use.
The pool is very nice. And there are beds space to sunbath!
Greg and Sak Ming are great hosts. They showed me around Ubud the first day and then helped me out with anything I asked for afterwards. Dayu is a gift from heaven, she always has a smile on her face and would help you with anything without hesitation.
Tucked away in the centre of Ubud, this was the ideal base for my Highvibe yoga teacher training at the Yoga Barn. With their wealth of local knowledge Greg and Sak Ming have left me a bit embarrassed that I couldn't do so many of the things Ubud and Bali has on offer, inclusive making use of the grandious pool in the garden, so have to come back! Thanks again Greg and Sak Ming!
Sak Ming was a very welcoming hostess at the Ubud Bali Lotus. Her support staff was kind and helpful. You definitely need a pair of tennis shoes to walk to central Ubud, but it was good exercise. You will need to pay for food shopping and preparation and laundry and clean sheets and clean towels during your stay. You must like the crowing of chickens and roosters for long periods of the morning. Wi-Fi access was great. The young woman who does the cooking, if you like, was amazing. She is the who shops, she brings you water, she takes your laundry, she cleans your room and all with a smile.
Thank-you for the wonderful review Karen K. It's true that guests choose to have their sheets and towels washed when they want. The great thing is a complete sheet, towel and cloths to the door laundry service ends up being less than $5 USD per week for a four person family on average. True that food preparation and shopping is also a small cost, again less than a couple dollars per meal. That's what is currently great about Bali Island, laundry and food costs are lower than anywhere you could go. We're glad you had a great time, look forward to having you over again soon.
