Desa Sanctuary, The Village offers unique accommodations in original antique wooden homes that have been lovingly restored offering all the modern comforts...ideal for those coming on retreat to Ubud, the cultural center of Bali.
Designed and created by Hollywood designer, David Seligman. We have now enhanced this beautiful setting with newly enclosed rooms with air conditioning and a Yoga Shala and a community area for dining and chilling.
Joglo Saraswati Dua, considered our Honeymoon Sweet, has now been redesigned to feature beautiful new appointments, fully enclosed and air conditioned. It is on the second floor and enjoys a garden view and pool view.
The Village features a beautiful pool and WIFI is available everywhere in our Village, so you can be online having a sunset drink by the pool, or reclining in your bed.
Desa Sanctuary is handily placed only 1.4 km (less than 1 mile) from the heart of Ubud's dining/shopping area, though there are many shops and cafes even closer. We are also on the same road as Yoga Barn, a great spot for yoga, meditation, cleaning and healing classes.
Guests have exclusive use of their villa and the communal space, including the Yoga Shala, the kitchen at Lumbung and the swimming pool area and gardens.
As a group or retreat you will have access to the entire property.

Sakming and the Team will take care of every aspect of your vacation. Please ask us !
Hi, I'm Sakming and I LOVE people and I LOVE what I do. We are here to make sure you have the best time you've ever had and we want to make your vacation special.
We have a great team..let us be here for you.
David 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!
Brenda has spent years doing spiritual work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. She is also an artist, so their
home is filled with original art.
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 the amazing Sakming and the Team who will take care of you!
