No smoking inside the rooms. Guest may smoke outside on the terrace if they desire.
this place. is. insane. i sort of don't even want to write a review because i fear that this place will be absolutely impossible to book once other visitors to bali discover it. it's perfectly decorated, very spacious, luxurious. the bathroom is amazing. we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our time in ubud.
one small warning: the place is hard to find. especially at night. we ended up spending almost two hours lost on our motor scooter but between calling the house manager on the cell phone that we were provided and the help of friendly locals we did manage to find it again.
can't wait to come back here soon. hopefully for a much longer stay. we are already recommending the villa to all of our friends.
This place is amazzzzing!!! we are going back asap!!
It is a truly beautiful, peaceful place set amongst the rice fields in a quiet village 10 minutes from Ubud. Jay and Nadia were such great hosts, we really enjoyed spending time with them and they really went out of their way to make our stay special. The food by Wayan and Cynthia was so good that we stopped going out for dinners and ate most of our meals at Naya. Nyoman and the rest of the staff spent most of their time keeping our daughter entertained while we relaxed by the pool.
We were lucky enough to be able to try a a couple of the rooms at Naya. On our first night we stayed at Gladak which was as beautiful as the pictures, Jay has a really nice way of putting things together.
For our next three nights we stayed at Joglo. This place was incredible! We had a huge balcony which we could relax on while our bubs slept and enjoy the views of the rice paddies and the organic garden. We also had the most spectacular bathroom which was outdoors, generally I would be reluctant to do this but it is was so insect free that you forget that you are outdoors.
It was so good being there it almost ruined the rest of our holiday staying at a big resort by the beach. I dont know why anyone would stay at a big resort when there are wonderful places like this.
Great place that you cannot wait for returning and enjoying a great escape in Ubud. Jay is the perfect host, thanks to his kind attention to manage to visit so much around the house, even visited the Elephant Park for a ride. It was wonderful stay but 1 night was too short to enjoy the welcoming swimming-pool... next time for sure!
We only had a few days stay at Naya, specifically in the Gladak, with my partner and our 4yr daughter and the experience was indeed amazing. Jay (who has spent years creating the place) and his new house manager Ludvig are together creating an phenomenal experience.
To imagine that people pay often 5 times more to stay in luxury hotels in Bali is beyond me. The space, the quality of the interiors, the grounds, the people, the pool (the pool!) the location are all second to none. And I mean that sincerely, their house sets the standards by which other villa hotels in Bali should aspire to.
Everyone working at the house were down-to-earth/helpful/kind/nice in a human way that big hotels try to achieve through training, but are really just qualities of nice people in the first place.
We never had any problems with wildlife in the room, but it's worth noting that in the middle of a rice field you are likely come close to wild life and spiders the kind of which you measure by the size of your hand, but they are all harmless.
Also, very close are a good number of excellent cafe/restaurants with extremely high standards of food, if you are willing to venture on a short walk/ride through the rice field.
I won't waste my time describing the location, simply look at the photographs, that is exactly how it looks.
Magical. I felt home (in the version of home that I only dream about)

About the Host, Rebecca
My name is Rebecca Pflaum and I am a Kundalini Inspired Yoga teacher, mother of four sons, a regular face teaching at the BaliSpirit Festival, and the owner of Naya.
For years I have dreamt of creating a space, a home for others to gather and to reconnect with their potentials, wisdom and gifts. A place where teachers, healers, musicians and dreamers can realize and share all that they have to offer. A sacred space for deep inner transformations, healing and those cherished AHA moments.
We live in a time where more and more people understand the importance and crave to connect with that which resonates as Truth and is authentic in supporting a sustainable and nurturing lifestyle. The more we come together to create, encourage and support each other to be the best that we can be, the more all that is around us will prosper as well.
Naya is your home away from home, a beautiful oasis for coming home to yourself. Allow yourself to participate in one of her many empowering and beautiful retreats, nourishing meals, soulful gatherings offering song and dance or just come and be still and soak in the healing surroundings of her nature and beauty.
I am so thrilled to welcome you to Naya.
