  • That was just the perfect place to celebrate our mariage anniversary. Bruce, Wayan and the whole staff delivered us a dream. The house is more than quiet and is very close to the center of Ubud. Don't hesitate to book it, you will not be disappointed for sure.

    Cet endroit a été pour nous un paradis pour celebrer notre anniversaire de mariage. Bruce, Wayan et tous le staff ont tout fait pour en faire un endroit de rêve. la maison est très paisible et proche du centre (nous avons aussi utilisé le scooter plusieurs fois ce qui est très pratique). Aucune hésitation, vous avez trouvé l'endroit idéal pour passer plusieurs jours a Ubud.

  • The atmosphere and design of the Art Villas make it a friendly and welcoming tropical haven that is still easily accessible to central Ubud. It is very Balinese in style complete with comfort of AC and fan and good quality furnishings and fittings. Who wouldn't want to shower in your bathroom under a warm (shower) waterfall amongst ferns and rockery and have a dip in a lovely pool overlooking the rice fields and Mt Agung? :-) Bruce and Wayan were very welcoming and interested which encouraged easy conversation between guests. The friendly and obliging staff also helped to add to such a family feel to the place. I will certainly return if I can!

  • I stayed with my friend here for 5 nights and this was one of the best airbnb places I have ever stayed at. It is very homely place, lovely garden, light and airy and the staff very fiendly and willing to help with everything - we had a lot of fun with them. Excellent swimming pool, nice sitting areas, lovely view of the volcano, close to raw food cafe and within walking distance of central Ubud.
    Very nice memories of the ArtVilla - thank you. Eva and Regina.

  • When we arrived the pool and exquisite gardens were so alluring. Fantastic quiet location, easy access & brand new scooter to rent. Breakfast was great and varied..love the dada gulung! (sp?)
    Alas it was a ceremonial week so despite accommodating us with every request the attention was a little sparser than I'm accustomed to. The only draw back for us was the b/room by the pool had a musty damp smell, many thanks guys you've created a fantastic oasis in paradise.

  • We had a lovely stay at ArtVilla in Poolside Heaven. It was a lovely room, very comfortable. The Villa itself was lovely, with a beautiful pool and a peaceful ambience. It was a short walk to town and to the numerous delicious eateries, and Penestanan village (the local area) was a great place to explore.
    Wayan helped organise private tours, rafting and cooking classes for us, and was very knowledgeable about the local area. All the staff were obliging and helpful, and we felt very well looked after (especially when we were struck down by Bali Belly from eating elsewhere). Made, the driver, deserves an honourable mention too.
    Another plus was meeting other guests at ArtVilla, it attracts friendly people from around the world and chats over breakfast were a great way to start the day (and get tips on things to do and see in the area).
    Thank you for a great stay!

  • Stop searching for a place to stay in Ubud, it doesn't get any better than this. Wayan and his staff created a one-of-a-kind stay that we will not soon forget. They were attentive, kind, and generous hosts. The rooms are all beautiful and the food, pure Balinese and delicious. The pictures on their website are 100% authentic. If anything, The ArtVilla is even more beautiful that the photos! You feel a sense of serenity the moment you arrive. Wayan will create day programs for you that give you a real sense of Balinese culture. We also made wonderful connections with the other guests in the villa, another real plus of this place. I would advise caution for people with mobility issues since their is some tricky footing involved across stones to get to the main dining area. Also, the bathroom tiles are treacherous when wet. But the bathrooms are gorgeous!

  • Hi. I had a wonderful stay in Ubud Art Villa. Wayan and his caring team made sure that every desire was met including time for drawing and and complete relaxation. This was about my15th return to Bali and I always return to Ubud for a major part of my stay. This time was a truly gorgeous experience and a great opportunity to meet some really lovely people from all over the worls with whom I intend to keep in touch. Well done Bruce for delivering the dream for yourself and others.

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.
