Featured in Family Traveller magazine, and soon the NYT and NatGeo, this nature inspired property is the perfect blend of high end Bali villa-meets super comfortable family home. A favourite for small retreats, family getaways and reunions.

The space

Villa Aalaya (Sanskrit for 'Home") is a beautiful villa made up of three antique teak buildings. The Joglo is our daytime space; containing the kitchen, dining room and sitting area, this building is completely open to the beautiful view of the forest, gorge and rice fields. Group dinners are great on our 4m x 1.5m teak dining table!

The Limasan is our private space, containing three bedrooms, a TV area, our library and two upper floor loft spaces (office and sacred space) The giant timbers and 40 foot ceilings create a stunning space to relax in.

Finally, the Gladak is a separate, self contained bedroom, made entirely of teak with its own private outdoor bathroom and veranda, mini fridge and coffee/tea making facilities.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed on a tatami platform, with a TV, 2 closets, a sunken tub and separate shower.

The two bedrooms are spacious with two single beds in one, and a custom made double bed with a pull out single underneath if required. They share a bathroom which is all glass (including the roof!) with huge trees overhead, an outdoor shower and a giant two person jacuzzi tub.

The property has a curved infinity pool overlooking the ricefiled and gorge, a trampoline (built into the ground, with net around), a fire pit for camp fires, huge beautiful trees and a bamboo grove. There is lots of parking and it is located 100m off the village road down a private driveway, so there it is very quiet.

Villa Aalaya is located 1.4km from the main road of Ubud in the village of Kutuh Kaja. The Ubud Botanical Gardens is 500m further up our street, and the only gym in Ubud is 700m from our house.

This is a family home we finished in December 2011 and lived in for 5 years, and it was designed with children in mind.

It comes with a Villa Manager to help with any questions/concerns and is fully serviced.

My husband, self and 6 adult children feel we have experienced a gift greater than money can buy or that words can express having stayed in this amazing home for 4 nights. The design details in the home are completely unique to the location and it is truly like staying a dear friends home. The team looking after the home and us were incredible, so very kind and thoughtful. You simply must engage the cooks morning and night the food is better than restaurant quality. The night time cook Ibu Made & her husband who came to assist prepared the most beautiful birthday banquet, cake and flower decorations I could poosibly imagined I was totally lost for words. The home is quite & peaceful with the most beautiful infinity pool overlooking rice fields, garden, cubbyhouse, tramp & swing. If you want an experience of a life time this large home with and additional separate accommodation for adults is brilliant. Thankyou so much to the hosts for sharing your incredible home.

The house is the most beautiful house we've ever rented. Such a unique design and home comfort feel to it! We loved the big outdoor kitchen and dining area! It's located very close to Ubud town but far enough to make you feel like you're living in the middle of the nature (you can only hear the noise of the ghekkos and animals). Widi was an amazing host. She helped arrange breakfast and dinner for us (cooked by a local chef). The dinners were delicious and excellent value for money. We would definitely hire the cook again as it makes the entire experience even more impressive. She also helped arranged some massages to take place at the house, which was the perfect way to end the day. Communication was spot on from day one until we left! Would love to come here again, it was perfect!

We had the most amazing stay at this Villa. The property was even better than we expected, we were truly blown away by the size and the beauty! Widi was an incredible host and was so helpful. She organized a day trip for us and was always there when we needed her or had any questions. We were 3 couples there and it was a large amount of space, we never felt crowded and we all still had out privacy with our own bedrooms. We had breakfast cooked for us every day and it was AMAZING! Coffee, Eggs, Bacon, Nutella french toast and fresh cut fruit! We also had Made come in and make us a traditional indonesian meal one night and it was delicious. I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for such an incredible experience in Ubud!

if you want to stay away from Ubud traffic during the high season, this is the best where you can walk to get busy in downtown and stay away silently with the colourful bird and beautiful garden.
