About this listing

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 live in, and it was designed with children in mind. We only rent it out while we are on vacation.

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

Words cannot describe how amazingly beautiful and relaxing this place is. The outdoor and main living are exquisite. You will feel totally relaxed and refreshed After staying here. It's up one of the streets off the main road, easy walk if you are feeling up to it but we loved the freedom that the scooters gave us to go everywhere. Would definitely recommend this place and also make sure you read the folder letting u know where best places to eat are etc. Thankyou so much for looking after us.

We really loved our 4 nights in this gorgeous villa. The house is in a fantastic location. We loved walking the streets of this local village. It's a decent 20min walk into the main streets of Ubud but there are always plenty of drivers around to help out if needed. There are a couple of Warungs around to have lunch and a great local supermarket about 500m to stock up on snacks etc. The pool at the villa was fantastic. My two young boys enjoyed the basketball net, swings, trampoline & badminton. There was enough space to kick the footy as well. Widi the house manager was lovely, she speaks perfect english so can give you plenty of helpful advice. We used the services of Made the cook on three occasions, we were all happy with our meals. The housekeepers & ground keeper all did a great job. The girls are always happy to help out. I highly recommend this villa. We will probably stay again in the future.

We had the perfect family holiday here! The villa is even more beautiful in person! The staff was so helpful and made our experience in Ubud amazing. Thank you to Made who not only made us incredible dinners every night but also took great care of my children while my husband and I did some white water rafting. Made did fruit carvings with our children and homemade painting with them, and her dinners were out of this world! The breakfast staff were also so sweet and accommodating! My children also loved the tree house, trampoline, and swing set.. And a big thanks to the driver Badra who gave us excellent service driving us all around Bali. If you're looking for a perfect mix of relaxation and sight seeing with an excellent location, look no further!!! We can't wait to come back!

Walking into Steve, Renee and Ajeng's home was simply an experience in itself - a central location but built with a design for tranquility in mind. It was stepping into a different space - absolutely stunning property for a group / family travel. Steve and Renee also hosted a dinner for us and the kitchen was simply filled with the warmth of Balinese hospitality. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will strongly recommend anyone to book this lovely home

Six of us and a 2 year old stayed at Steve's place for a week and we had such a fantastic time. We didn't want to leave. The pool is amazing, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and beautiful. The beds are very comfortable. It's a 20 minute walk on the road to the Main Street in Ubud. Made the cook cooked dinner for us on most nights and we had breakfast each morning. Try the pumpkin pie and ribs. The best. Badra was really helpful driving us around when we needed it and we hired him to drive us to the airport on our last day and to fill in the time before the flight. All in all I would recommend this place to everyone.
