The Space

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 Guest Suite is the ground floor level 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.
We only rent out this part of our villa when we're traveling, and close off the upper bedroom.
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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • Villa Semua Suka definitely lives up to its name - yes we liked it!

    It was as if we came home to our own villa in the hills of Ubud. Pia and Ratna made sure that we were settled in immediately and within a couple of hours we were well into our vacation week at Ubud.

    The adventure of walking up the terraced fields added to the quaintness and mystique of the villa, and may well have been a walking tour one had to pay for.

    The pool is amazingly clean and inviting and saw us in it daily.

    Breakfast, Beds, TV, Wifi .... all worked for us wonderfully.

    Thanks Barbara ... we will be back for sure. I dont think there can be a higher endorsement than that.

  • Villa Hyacinth absolutely surpassed our expectations. We had a lovely stay at the house which is a nice distance from the hustle of Ubud. It's in a gorgeous smaller area with great restaurants and lovely narrow paths to explore. The house is comfortable with everything you might need. Ketut and Pia really took care of us, even entertaining our baby while we ate breakfast. Thank you for a great stay!

  • Having studied and compared tons of Ubud villas with my husband, we finally chose Hyacinth. The first step into the house, we simply SIGHED… thinking we made the right decision. Absolutely elated! After (only) 3 wonderful, relaxing nights from 3-5 June, we were genuinely sad to leave, we wish we stayed much longer. My husband and I with our close friend Ksenia were spoiled with the tranquility and serenity of the surrounding, orchestra of the animals that accompanied us at nights and greeted us in the morning, the hearty yummy homemade breakfast from the local fruits. Super cozy, comfortable sofas and beds, especially the ‘gazebo’ at the top corner of the garden overlooking the plants and ricefields, which was perfect to chill, contemplate or daydream. Within just stone-throw away were nice restaurants of local/international food, also Yoga and Spa. What more do you want? The long narrow pathway to the villa starting from the alley next to the BINTANG shop was always a fun lil journey to us as it was surrounded with dense tropical plants and trees, ricefield, and singing birds. The location can’t be better, a healthy happy lovely nature walk (at least for us who are used to walking in Europe?) of 20-25 minutes to the Ubud Center. Getting snacks and drinks were so easy, just walk a bit to that Bintang shop that was open until 10 PM. Barbara and Henry took care of us with their warmth and friendliness, made us feel like a family. We miss them and the fun exciting chat we had. They also have a couple of fantastic housekeepers. The creative, initiative Made Pia who spoiled us with her homemade baking goodies, and Ketut with her sweet sincere heart who helped us around with shopping and cleaning. They’re the best! Will definitely come back again. Can’t wait. We have found our home in Ubud. Thank you guys for the lovely, unforgettable stay! Missing you a lot. Kathy, Joel & Ksenia

  • Barbara and Hemry were hospitable during our stay. It was a great experience walking the 2 adorable pugs together with Henry in the morning! The villa is located near the bintang market, about 5min walk. The walking path is dark but we have understood from the local driver that it is usually safe in that area. Torchlights are provided by Barbara and Henry, so there was no problem at all for us! Pia the housekeeper makes good breakfast and smoothies, she made a juice for me when i fell ill, really nice of her! The villa is very clean, homely and well designed. The room was breezy and had great views from both balconies. Highly recommend this place! :)

  • Hyacinth House is an ideal place to enjoy all that Ubud has to offer while at the sametime being far enough from the busyness to have a relaxing holiday. There are a number of really good restaurants nearby- be sure to try the Yellow Flower and the Elephant. The walk to the house with a view of the rice paddies adds to the authentic Balinese charm and is a definate plus. We were well taken care of by the friendly housekeepers with a delicious breakfast each morning. Highly recommended!

  • My husband and I had a great time in Ubud in Barbara's bungalow.
    Barbara and her husband Henry gave us very good advices about where to go and where to eat. I forgot my key once, and Henry had to hurry back from his friends' house to deliever his key to us. Thank you very much for that.

    Pia, the maid, cooked the best breakfast in the world. Well, in fact, I usually have no time to eat breakfast when I was working, so Pia's breakfast really stand out. :)

    The driver Blue took us to one of the best local place to eat really authentic baliness food. So Yummy.

  • PERFECTION. If you are reading the reviews seeking confirmation, look no further. You have to stay here when in Ubud,

    Not only is the bungalow exactly as described and pictured, but Barbara and Henry will take the greatest care to make sure you enjoy every minute of your stay. The bungalow itself was found spotless, bright and airy, and sports some of the nicest amenities you can think of, including a decadent outdoor shower and bath (we did not use the indoor one once during our five day stay!).

    The location is idyllic: set in the fields amidst a beautiful small community a few minutes walk from busy Ubud, it is unbeatable. You can walk everywhere and there is a supermarket five minutes away. The grounds are phenomenally beautiful with a wonderful deep pool, and the setup ensures privacy while making you feel part of the family.

    Our stay was made perfect by Pia, chef and site keeper extraordinaire, who not only served us some of the best breakfasts we've had in our lives, but engaged in fun and thoughtful conversations when taking a break from her busy schedule. She even brought us gifts of her home made baking (sweet bread and the yummiest scone in the world) for us to enjoy at tea time.

    A 10 out of 10 experience, and one we will not only cherish in our memories but also strive to repeat in the near future, and hopefully for much longer next time. Thank you so very much Barbara, Pia and Henry for 5 days in paradise.

  • Lovely house and pool and very close to Ubud centre. Hosts were extremely helpful and provided us with the most amazing driver and tour guide who really enhanced our stay. We are very thankful for having such a great start to our holiday! I will definitely recommend to friends.

  • We spent three nights at Bungalow Jepun and had a lovely time. The bungalow is set in beautiful gardens which we could relax in during the day. The inclusion of breakfast was a real bonus especially since they were really delicious!

    Barbara and Henry were great hosts and provided us with lots of helpful suggestions for activities and places to eat. They have a very cute dog which added to the fun experience.

    The location is also great, being just a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Ubud.

    I would certainly recommend this as a great place to stay in Ubud.

About
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!
