About this listing
Wonderful, full service breakfast included, daily cleaning, air con and wifi. Stay in the most exciting area of Ubud. Close to all amenities. Live like the Balinese!
A short walk along a narrow path away from the sounds of cars and motorbikes brings you to the magical, compound of Villa Semua Suka, which means "everybody likes'.
Jasmine Suite is the lower air-conditioned bedroom in the Villa with a king-size bed and one bathroom with outdoor and indoor showers. The bedroom looks out onto the pool and opens to an outdoor veranda, swimming pool, gazebo and garden, which are all part of your living area. You also have full access the rest of the downstairs area which includes a TV, DVD and iPod player and WiFi throughout the compound.
The villa was completed 2 years ago to Western standards with a Balinese aesthetic, and was built on a former rice field. It has a fish pond and small waterfall, its own garden, outdoor loungers, umbrella, a table and 2 chairs and other comfortable chairs for relaxing.
Your stay at VSS includes a gourmet breakfast featuring our own house-made bread and jams, fresh fruit, choice of eggs, pancakes, and local specialties, plus great Balinese coffee! You'll be well taken care of by our staff led by Made' Pia. Made' can help with arrangements for day trips, rafting, downhill biking, cooking classes, et al.
The villa is located on a quiet walking path about 200 meters from the main road and is in a small neighborhood where you will pass ex-pats, local Balinese and villas for tourists. You will not see or hear motorbikes or cars up here. Less than 5 minutes walk down the path is an excellent Yoga studio, 4 small, local restaurants and a large supermarket. A few more minutes walk you will find some wonderful massage spas.
You have, in the Jasmine Suite the quiet of the village of Penestanan and the convenience of being just a 20 minute walk from the town of Ubud, where you can find many excellent restaurants, museums, galleries and shopping fun!
The whole house or entire property is also available for rent for large parties.
Pool, gazebo, gardens etc.
Interaction with Guests
We only rent out this part of the house when we are traveling. Our staff will take good care of you, speak English well and can provide information on all the tourist and non-tourist activities.
Our neighborhood is really unique in that it is set in a quiet, rural area, but close to all the amenities that Ubud has to offer. We have many restaurants in our area, a great yoga studio, a western styled supermarket and shops.
We share the area with Balinese who live all around us as well as other travelers and ex-pats.
Walking is the best way to see Ubud, but taxis are available as well as motor bike rentals. Our main driver, Blue can assist you with airport transport as well as car or motor bike rentals.
Check in time is 2:00 but please, no later than 4:00 as that is when Made' leaves.
Check out is at 12:00 unless prior arrangments are made.
At the end of the narrow path to the villa, we opened the door on a colourful fantastic treasure garden calling to peace and tranquility with blue watered pool, fountains and vegetation. We immediately felt home and after a quick refreshing dive we started browsing the villa friendly user guide and home made restaurant directory.
Yellow flower just next door is definitely a must try in the evening. The villa is also super well equipped and it's probably nice aswell to cook his own meal in the open kitchen. Every room is tidy and clean, Pia is taking care of household and also prepares legendary breakfasts with succulent home made marmelades (i loved the spicy one!). She has also good advises for tourism activities and planning.
Usually the villa is shared with 3 guests but we happened to be alone most of our stay then we can enjoy the pool anytime we want.

About the Host, Barbara
My husband and I have had a love affair with Bali for many years, buying our Villa Sunrise on the beach in 2004, opening an Indonesian furniture and art gallery in Santa Fe New Mexico, organizing yoga and meditation retreats, and now having built our Villa in the ricefields of Ubud.
Villa Semua Suka and Bungalow Jepun were built in 2011 to western standards with a Balinese esthetic.
We have decorated the villa with high quality Balinese art, furniture and artifacts. Villa Sunrise, Villa Semua Suka and Bungalow Jepun are our 'homes' not 'hotels'........welcome Home!
