Description

The space

Desa Sanctuary, The Village offers unique accommodations in original antique wooden homes that have been refurbished and 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.

Our very own Rumah Tinggi ..."The Tall House"

Set above the Village, Rumah Tinggi has sweeping views of the rice paddies, pool and gardens.

This room is the favorite of all the writers we have ever had stay with us. A well placed desk overlooking the rice paddies at which to commune with nature or friends, a casual and comfortable sofa with plenty of room to spread out....Rumah Tinggi is a great place to come home to!

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

Our staff can assist you in arranging almost anything, at cost price. We never receive a commission or kick back from any service or company we might recommend. We simply want you to have an amazing experience, at the best price possible.

Getting around

Some of our guests like to walk (less than a mile into town) but be aware that like almost every neighborhood in Bali, the sidewalks around us are in poor condition, or even non-existent at times. Easy options are we can organize for you scooters (around $4-6 per day) Day tours with wonderful hand picked local drivers can be arranged at any time. We pride ourselves on helping our guests discover the real Bali.

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!
