Desa Sanctuary, The Village offers unique accommodations in original antique wooden homes that have been refurbished and restored offering all the modern comforts. Just the right mix of Bali Modern with traditional hand carved Javanese Joglos perched atop open floor plans.
The Village is a private and secure residence situated down a lane on the same street as the famous healer of EAT, PRAY, LOVE. Just minutes from the center of town....ideal for those coming on retreat to Ubud, the cultural center of Bali.
Joglo Saraswati, our second largest Joglo, features beautiful detailed carvings in the ceiling with expansive glass windows. From this vantage point you have a birds eye view of the Village and the rice paddies beyond. The Master Bedroom upstairs with a Queen Bed and air con, has a beautiful master Bath nestled in the treetops. Sit on your private terrace and watch the rice grow.
The open floor plan, fan cooled, living room features a traditional Bali Bed, a glorious indoor/outdoor 2nd bath, a kitchen with double burner stove top and refrigerator, and an electronic keypad safe large enough for a laptop.
Joglo Saraswati, can accommodate 4 persons in total. Prices are valid for 2 person occupation at USD $75 a night, including breakfast for two. Additional occupants (up to 4 persons total) is $15/night/person.
A short distance from Ubud center, Desa Sanctuary is a great place to make your home away from home. A full staff of delightful helpers makes this the best vacation...you'll never have to lift a finger!
Remember.....WIFI is available everywhere in our Village....and it's FREE

Awesome spot with amazing staff. We should've stayed longer. Wake up in the morning and go for a swim.
Incredible driver Made took us to the best restaurants!
The other staff looked after our every need with a smile.
This is a Wondrous place to stay. Such a beautiful villa perfect for my daughters and me to stay. It is done in the original Bali style with the carved ceiling in the master bedroom and carved doors, and beautiful bathrooms. So comfortable, clean with everything we needed. Of course the real stars of this place are the staff. They bend over backwards to accommodate you. With their winning smiles and good spirits they always say Yes.
The villa is a little outside of Ubud which is nice because you're out of the fray of noises and the hubub. This means you have to figure out a way to get into the middle of town. It's an easy walk to Yoga Barn, but a little bit more of a trek to get to the Palace area. I did rent motorbikes from Ketut for my daughters and that solved the issue as I rode behind one of them and we could easily get to any part of town within minutes. It's a little challenging for us Americans driving on the left, but we got into the swing of things and felt like natives. Taxis are super cheap and cost between $4-5 to go into town.
The breakfasts were definitely a highpoint. The banana pancakes/crepes are well worth it.
Thank you Joglo Saraswati for being a wonderful place to spend a vacation. I stayed here 3 1/2 weeks of bliss.
Very nice stay in this little house hotel. People are always welcome to help you. You will need to rent a scooter because the hotel is not in Ubud center. Ubud is very big, so anyway scooter is the best way to visit the town and temples around.
I will recomand this house hotel to my friends ^^
The villa is not in the main street of Ubud,not difficult to find,but you better get a car or scooter,or is a long way walk to everywhere.
Too scary for 3 girls walked at night without streetlights,especially when the dogs were barking.
Besides that.Staffs were very nice to meet our needs,I can't say how thankful we are.
And thanks for the healthy breakfast,good start on the morning.
Greetings from China.
A fantastic place not too far from many great restaurants. Very relaxed atmosphere and the staff were amazing. We were very impressed.
The sanctuary was a true oasis in the hustle and bustle of Ubud. Set off the road and with beautiful surroundings.
15 mins walk South of Ubud central, Monkey Sanctuary, Ubud Market.
The staff were helpful, friendly , and went out of their way to assist you with anything. We will definitely be staying here again and highly recommend!
With our family of four we enjoyed staying in Joglo Saraswati, which was our first accomodation in Bali. The place is a nice little paradise away from the busy streets in Ubud. We always enjoyed to relax there after returning from our daily excusrions. The staff was very kind and helpful.

David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You".
He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans.
He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand!
I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I was a hairdresser for 30 years in the US. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast!
As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it.
Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine.
We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Sakming, who will be your contact person.
