The Space

***VILLA ASMARA ON SALE!!! SPECIAL OVER 30% OFF REGULAR RATE. From $99 for most dates in July and August!

With the best view in Ubud, Asmara at the Harmony retreat means "Romance" in the local language and this stunning villa is the perfect love nest for a honeymoon or singles or couples seeking absolute privacy and beauty. Villa Asmara has a huge private deck and meditation garden right on the edge of the rice fields and both sunrise and mountain views to the north as well as a panoramic vista of the terraces to the north and west. A tastefully furnished open plan living room with fully retractable doors and a full kitchen allows for indoor/outdoor living and the spacious master bedroom is designed for intimacy and privacy with its canopied oversized queen bed and rich decor. Designed for personal indulgence, the en-suite stone and granite garden bathroom comes with a a lovely rain shower and a unique open "museum style" sculpture frame wall looking out to a Buddha in the garden. Your stay includes a fabulous daily breakfast and full staff services.

One of the favorites of Asmara's guests is to awaken before dawn and watch the early light lift the mist over the ocean of rice and experience a Bali Sunrise right from your private deck with coffee in hand. It's an experience like no other in Bali. Stay long enough and you'll experience the whole cycle of rice cultivation from planting to harvesting and the local religious festivals celebrating Bali's unique cultural heritage.

The gorgeous 15 meter infinity pool at Harmony on the edge of the rice fields is only steps away from your private villa through Harmony's lush landscaping. The Harmony pool is situated on the very edge of the bluff overlooking the rice and has a shallow end seating area for relaxing after you've done your laps! It's central for use by all the villas at Harmony yet large enough for privacy. We don't have pool hours so feel free to take a moonlight swim at 3 am!

Our staff will help you with all your needs from the wonderful daily cooked breakfast to personal laundry to arranging tours and itineraries as well as giving you tips for the best shopping and massage in Ubud. A private chef can also be arranged to cook you traditional Indonesian cuisine right in your villa in your fully equipped kitchen.

Enjoy a wonderful daily cooked breakfast prepared in your villa each morning of delicious pancakes or eggs, fresh tropical fruit tea or coffee and juice to start your day in paradise! Breakfast will be prepared in your villa each morning at 8.00am, however if you would like to change breakfast times, please ensure you notify our villa manager at check in so we can accommodate you.

Villa Asmara is located on the edge of a huge rice paddy in the village of Lodtunduh, about 2 km from Ubud and not far from the Monkey Forest and all the world class shopping on Hanuman Street and the cultural activities and restaurants in Ubud. We are very centrally located for all of Bali's sights and activities. Sanur beach is close (about 12 miles) and Seminyak. Kuta and Legian are easy drives for a whole day out with a different vibe. Or you can go up the hill to Kintamani and the hot springs at Lake Batur in an hour or so. Temples abound everywhere - from Besakih, the "Mother Temple" to Tanah Lot on the ocean (two of the most famous and holy) and we can organize tours to anywhere on the island and to Lombok too....

It's slightly cooler in the Ubud area than the beach. A/C is not needed at Harmony due to our location right on the edge of the rice fields. We almost always get a breeze and Asmara has 2 powerful overhead fans and a high ceiling to keep the air flowing. You'll find our open tropical design for indoor/outdoor living works for your comfort.

Your villa stay includes daily breakfast (for up to two people), free wifi, a laptop sized safe, fully equipped kitchen, towels, TV/DVD, parking, laundry (by arrangement), daily staff service, nighttime security staff, a yoga deck, sun loungers and the priceless ambiance of the Harmony lifestyle.

Please note that although we love children and welcome them, due to our location on the rice fields you'll need to be responsible for them at all times.

The Villa is available for daily rental (2 night minimum please) or longer. Please ask us for rates for longer term stays (over 10 days) We do not have a set check in or out time to meet your needs if you are coming from outside of Bali. . We can arrange airport pickup and drop off for you for a reasonable charge. *** Please also note we must collect a 10% Indonesian government hotel tax payable upon check in.

Guest Access

Asmara guests can use all the facilities.

The yoga deck has a hammock and breakfast area if you want to eat outside of your villa. All our villas are private from each other and each has a unique feature. Asmara has its very own private Buddha Meditation Garden.

Interaction with Guests

I'm not always in Bali but our staff will look after you hand and foot. If I'm there I'm always available to give you tips and pointers on the best way to maximize your stay inUbud and Bali.

The Neighborhood

Our village is still mostly agricultural and its a fascinating place to experience real Bali village life which can't be found in touristy areas such as Kuta or Seminyak. That's the lovely thing about our area of Lodtunduh village.

You'll likely encounter ceremonies, celebrations, weddings, a cremation perhaps (a big event in Bali) , the local temple festivals.
but most of all you'll see (depending on when you visit) the fascinating cycle of rice farming from preparing the fields, planting seedlings, thinning out the new rice, watching the ducks do their amazing dances, to harvesting, threshing and drying. You'll see the village men parade their fowl and perhaps experience a cockfight - you may not approve but its very much part of village life here. And you can wager and maybe win if you want!

Getting around

There's a taxi service right in our village to take you to and from the airport (about $30) and into town (about $4) a few minutes away and we can also rent you scooters (and helmets!) for about $6 per day. There's free parking at the villa.

Other Things to Note

Ubud is a gastronomic paradise with virtually every kind of food available just a few minutes from Harmony. Many offer take out and delivery, so you can eat in your villa, under the stars on your private deck, or on the pool deck. Our amazing private chef is available (by arrangement) to cook for you or give you Balinese cooking lessons.

  • The trip to Ubud was fantastic from start to finish. The correspondence prior to arrival was prompt and smooth. Airport pickup was organised and easy. All staff at harmony were cheerful and a delight to deal with. The Villa was clean and beautiful. I hired a scooter from the villa for about $5AUD per day and it took what felt like 5 mins to get to Ubud. Overall I was very satisfied. As far as Ubud is concerned, I am into Yoga and health so if that is your thing also you should definitely get there. Its amazing. There are many other reasons to go also. I will return. Peace.

  • Stunning location and a great experience. Beautiful villas, very thoughtfully and tastefully designed. The rice fields right at your door step... a clean and well sized pool. A short drive away from Ubud. The resident manager was helpful in EVERY which way - in getting us a scooter or a car or food... you name it and they went out of the way to help.
    What are you waiting for - stop reading and just BOOK IT!! :)

  • Harmony Villas are absolutely incredible! So beautiful, comfortable and clean. The staff was amazing and we got to talk with Michael many times and he was just so lovely and accommodating. We cannot recommend Harmony any more highly, especially the Asmara Villa at Harmony, truly a home away from home. Go and spend your time in Ubud there, you will not regret it.

About
I'm an educational filmmaker born in the UK, spent many years in Los Angeles, have an organic farm (still going) in Southern California and now travel a lot with bases in beautiful Bali.and equally beautiful Ojai, California. I've created Harmony Villas with my Balinese friend Wayan Nama in a modern tropical minimalist style to reflect our joint passions - connection with the land, no clutter, beauty and a wonderful environment. I'm equally passionate about providing a superlative experience for Harmony guests so they can have an authentic Bali vacation and truly relax.
