If you are looking for a peaceful, resting and relaxing place to stay this is it! My partner and I have travelled to Bali 5 times over the years mainly to surf however this time we wanted to experience Ubud so had a two night stay at ArtVilla and on arriving I instantly regretting not staying there for longer. I can confidently say this is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in Bali. Wayan was so helpful with directions and dinner recommendations, even dropping us to a restaurant on his way home from work. Breakfast was fresh and tasty and all the staff at ArtVilla were so accommodating. Our room was exactly as we pictured and the outdoor shower was to die for. We enjoyed sharing the common areas with the other guests and eating breakfast together. I have already recommended this place to others and will definitely be coming back visit. Thank you to everyone at ArtVilla for the amazing experience.
Ubud's Art villa was beautiful and Bruce a very friendly host. We enjoyed a very relaxing stay. Staff always welcome you with a smile and that's a bonus. The villa is about 10 mins walk to Ubud' s town centre but it's actually good to be away from the busy traffic of Ubud, you're close yet you can enjoy waking up with the countryside feel. You can also enjoy yummy homemade food at Bruce's but if eating out we totally recommend this restaurant called "Element" just 2 mins walk from the villa downhill on the way to the town centre (left hand side). It was really really good, value for money as it is out of the touristy strip in Ubud, really good atmosphere and super food :)
It was wonderful staying here. I felt really at home and enjoyed the view of the rice fields and sitting by the natural pool was a special treat. Thank You.
The listing for ubud art villa was very accurate. The place was not that easy to find - i had a driver not from the area so we had to ask some local people who all knew. Once there I was made to feel extremely welcome - the place is peaceful and relaxing while being a short distance to central Ubud. Around the villa there are restaurants and small warungs and it is possible to cut through the rice paddies at the back of the villa to access the bintang supermarket. Ubud art villa has drivers available for day tours and transport. Breakfast every morning was very tasty and the eco theme of the villas is a plus. The information booklet left about the villa and the area was particularly helpful. This is a great place to stay in Ubud alone or as a couple and meet other people, do your own thing and get some relaxation in!
We were made to feel very welcome and the location of Ubud Art Villa is perfect for exploring the Champuan area and also a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Ubud. The accommodation is peaceful and the breakfast simple but tasty.
We had a wonderful stay in Ubud Art Villas. The whole property is beautiful and so quiet! The staff are really lovely and made us feel like one of the family. The location is excellent with plenty of great restaurants and things to do in the area. We will definitely be coming back to stay here and will reccomending Ubud Art Villas to everyone we know!

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.
