Interaction with Guests
Wayan and the staff are there for your every need.
River rafting is a fun, safe adventure activity and just one of the things we can include in your stay with us
We enjoyed our stay at the ArtVilla. It is a beautiful, calm and serene place and perfect to explore the area. We recommend to arrange a day trip with Jon, we enjoyed it a lot. The room is spacious and clean and the swimmingpool is very refreshing. Also, the breakfast is lovely.
Bruce and Wayan are fantastic hosts! Though I've only communicated with them via email, I felt assured and know that they will prioritise my interests. The villa is a good place to stay if you're looking for a quiet sanctuary (after partying in Seminyak/Kuta). It's a 15 mins walk from all the buzz, you will not be needing a taxi! The Art Villa is comfortable and clean- it has a outdoor shower, a bath tub and plenty of hot water for shower (perfect for couples). The shared pool and dining area is a good place to mingle with the staff and other guests. Overall, travellers who like accommodation that is 'close to nature', 'peaceful' and 'homely' should definitely pick this place! A shoutout to the staff (Bluce and his wife)!
It exceeded our expectations. A very unique place with very accommodating and nice staff. The room is big enough with good AC. What we liked the most is the indoor-outdoor bathroom. It's so unique and beautiful. It gave us the feeling of separation from the loud, crowded and busy city. We felt the wonders of nature. The swimming pool is also nice, definitely not the typical one. The food service was just a little slow but it was ok because while waiting we just stare at the trees and feel the nature.
My husband and I had a lovely time at the Art Villa. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! If you're looking for a great, relaxed, peaceful place to stay close to the centre of Ubud, this is your spot.
Me, my husband, and our 1,5 YO daughter loved staying in ArtVilla. The common area is very nice and relaxing and is just inviting to hangout. Everyone working there was very nice and attentive. We had a little misunderstanding about the size of a baby cot we needed, but Bruce solved our problem so quickly it made me understand he really wants everyone who is staying there the best time. I would definitely come back to Art Villa again.
Villa is a 15 minute walk from Ubud center. There are always taxis hanging out around the corner to give you a lift. There are places to eat on the street nearby. Breakfast is nice but not too big. (I go a bit crazy during the vacation with my breakfast so maybe it was a plus!)
The Art Villa in Ubud, is an amazing place!
My wife and I stayed for 6 nights, and it was just fantastic. We traveled with our 12 month old girl and the family staff, Wayan and Bruce all welcomed us with soo much kindness and warmth.
The room was nice with an awesome outdoor bathroom and the common surroundings were superb! The pool is really great and the view is breathtaking, especially when there are no clouds and you can see the vulcano.
An other really wonderful thing, is the food! Some of the best in Ubud!!! :)
The neighbourhood is tranquil and there are some nice organic shops and restaurants.
It is a 15-20 min walk to the centre og Ubud, wich is fine.
I must say, that You most likely will hear the roosters early in the morning. It woke me up the first morning, but after that I didn't really mind. The frog "koncert" in the evening and fireflies was fun, and just another part of the nature, you will be a part of, when visiting Ubud.
Beside that, we had some nice chats, with the other guests staying at the villa, over breakfast. All really friendly! There just was a good wibe and "homely" feeling at the villa.
In all, I can only recommend this little place! I hope, to return some day :)
I made this booking for my parents, who came to visit me from the states. Unfortunately when I was checking my parents in, the staff seemed very confused, they had the wrong dates for the booking. Fortunately there was another room for them to sleep in the first night, however it was a little annoying to have to move rooms. Here is their review:
My husband and I spent six nights at Ubud Art Villas; we enjoyed the stay very much. The staff became like family to us; they were efficient and hospitable. The villas are in a good location but it was also quiet and serene. The pool overlooks a view of this hills and other villas. We ate all our breakfasts there and had good eggs and toast western style as well as Indonesian specialties such as the green pancake with coconut and palm syrup. At meals we all sat at a large table and talked with other guests. My only complaint is that the tiles in the bathroom were very slick - we are a bit older and concerned about falling.

About the Host, Bruce
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.
