Total privacy and space. The ambience is soft luxurious and warm. But the temperature isn't if you use the large AC.
Hidden behind those clouds is Mt Agung. An amazing sight but often shy to reveal itself. Morning is best.

We had a wonderful stay at Ubud Art Villa. The place is very well located not far from Ubud and close to the rice-fields paths of Penestanan which we liked very much.
The villa is very beautiful, quiet, and has got all the comfort you need.
On top of that the staff is very friendly and helpful. They made really good friend (and breakfast babysitting...) with our children.
We will come back again !
Thank you for everything
We stayed 5 nights at the arts villas in January 2015. We had a delightful stay and came away feeling that we never had a better holiday in Bali. Our room was spacious, light and airy and had fabulous views over the lush green vegetation of Ubud, all the way to the vulcanos in the background, visible in the clear of morning. We loved the natural materials used to create the villas, pool and decor. Bruces artwork was generously scattered all through the Villa, lifting the space even further. I especially enjoyed his ceramic works. The pool area, adjacent to the downstairs common living area was a heaven with sounds of trickling water and very cooling to plunge into after our long morning walks in the neighbourhood. The old Penestan village accessible by foot only through rice fields along the little drains is a must visit. The yellow flower café tucked away along the secret pathways is a highlight with fresh organic juices and meals at very reasonable prices. The ridge walk down by Camphuan bridge is a great walk as well. Bruce and Wayan were wonderful hosts with time for a chat and plenty of local knowledge to inspire guests. Their enthusiasm and love of the true Bali adds to the experience at the Villas as does the very friendly and helpful staff. Wayan organised a fantastic rafting experience for us and our friends not to be missed by the adventurous traveller. I can highly recommend staying at the arts villas and we will certainly come back when next in Bali.
I stayed at Ubud Art Villa last month and it was absolutely fabulous! The room was comfortable, quiet, super clean and the views were breathtaking. Bruce's staff was very accommodating - making me coffee every morning before breakfast officially started and delivering it to my room. The pool was beautiful, the food was delicious and the surroundings were exactly what I was thinking for a solo trip to Bali. THANK YOU!
Great location with a fantastic view. We had the the room upstairs with a balkony. Really quiet place for coming down. The breakfast and all the other food is traditional indonesian food, fresh and tatsy. The owner recommends us a rafting tour, wich was extiting. You can know learn the almost untouched nature. And it was a Lot of fun.
Thanks for all that, Wayan

Gran equipo, trato inmejorable, el mejor masaje de bali y muy buena cocina. Un pequeño paraíso en ubud
Well how lucky were we!! My husband Leo, daughter Abby and I stayed at Ubud Art Villa for 6 nights from July 7th 2013. We have visited Bali and Ubud many times over the years and this was by far our best experience yet. We felt instantly at home from the moment we arrived which was largely due to Bruce, Wayan and the beautiful staff who are Wayan's family. We stayed in the luxury space which is on the first floor with views to Mt Agung which was beautiful. However all of the rooms have their own advantages. Every day we ate and drank from the beautiful ceramics made by Bruce himself which is just one other unique touch this venue offers. One very important point is that you must try to stay more than 2-3 nights. We stayed for 6 and could have stayed longer. There is so much to do in and around Ubud and you are simply cutting yourself short of a wonderful experience if you stay a for a shorter time. You will also enjoy the villa more if you stay longer as you become entrenched in the every day happenings and feel like part of the family the longer you are there. As Ubud is more centrally located than Seminyak, you are closer to many attractions so rather than spending unnecessary hours in a vehicle you can be within 45 min of most activities. For those of you wanting to experience a more traditional Bali with local food easily obtainable and the surroundings more peaceful than this location is highly recommended. Each time we return to Bali we will stay at the Ubud Art Villa - already planning when our next trip can be! Thanks Kerri.
The Stay by Upud Art Villa was realy very nice and relaxing. The Villa is in 10-15 MInutes Walking distance to Upud, what is very good because Upud is very busy and loud. Art Villas lays pretty quite (only wake up call by cooks) and has a nice garden with pool. The Room in the first floor is the best room (luxury), has a graet view and is perfect to relax. Thank you very much for a great time.

I am an artist, teacher and cultural travel organiser. My interest in the arts takes me regularly to Asia and many locations. Bali has become more than a travel destination and my connections with the Balinese people have enriched my life. i hope to share some of this with you if you stay at my Boutique Hotel Villa in Ubud.
Of course my life revolves around art, music and culture and these things inform the philosophy of the Villa. But I also love nature, the outdoors, adventure and cultural discovery. If you stay with us we will share all this with you.
