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.
The Rumah Kampung, is an indigenous Balinese Village Rumah or house, complete with it's own terrace looking out to the garden and the Yoga Shala.
It is one of our newest additions and is the perfect size house for one or two persons. It features a full size bed and comfortable sofa for lounging and reading. An indoor/outdoor bath and small kitchenette make it a perfect home away from home!
The Village features a beautiful pool and Fiber Optic 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.
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.
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.
