The Villa at Satori:
The beautifully appointed 2 bedroom Villa is actually three stand-alone buildings side by side, set amongst tropical gardens. It boasts a spectacular infinity pool, a home cinema, and is staffed with wonderful housekeepers should you require them.
It is somewhat rare around Ubud in that it features a living area that can be made outdoor OR indoor. It opens up on three sides to water features and the exclusive use pool that reaches out toward the rice field/temple view. Most traditional style villas have their living areas always open to the elements and the creatures that inhabit them.
Relax, read or entertain in this tranquil space or make use of the home cinema, featuring a state of the art HD projector and boasting a growing library of over 250 movies and TV shows. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining and is fitted with imported kitchenware.
The huge Master Suite features a super king size bed, sofa that coverts to a single bed for a child (with another fold out child's bed available on request) a flat screen cable TV with DVD and a Bose Bluetooth speaker system for your device. It has a magical al fresco jungle garden shower and bath (with a view!)
The charming Guest Suite boasts a stunning view and features a queen size bed, flat screen cable TV and DVD, a Bose Bluetooth speaker system for your device, and a large bathroom with open roof shower. Both bedroom suites offer a selection of memory foam or plush pillows, quality mattresses and cotton bedding and air conditioning.
Massage tables can be set up in your room if you chose to book one of the wonderful local therapists that are on call to visit. They offer a range of massage styles and assorted spa treatments including manicures and skin treatments - highly regarded by our guests. A perfect and inexpensive end to a memorable Bali day!

The property lies amongst lush jungle gardens above a stream of great importance to the local village. At one end lies a small temple where holy water is collected from an underground spring for important ceremonies and at the other is a bathing and laundry area, a social point for local villagers.

They are based in an office room at the entrance to the property, leaving you to relax in the villa, and to be able to call upon them as you wish.
Ubud, a cultural and artistic hub, with a powerful healing energy that has been acknowledged for generations (It's name derives form the Balinese word for medicine, Ubad) We're surrounded by stunning temples and daily ceremony, rich cultural events, talented artists, and magnificent scenery - volcanoes, rivers, jungle and oceans of world renowned rice fields.
Some of our guests like to walk (less than a mile into town) but be aware that like almost every neighbourhood in Bali the sidewalks around us are in poor condition, or even non existent at times. Easy options we organise for you are scooters (around $4 USD per day) and a van service (around $4 USD per trip into town) Day tours with wonderful hand-picked local drivers can be arranged at any time. We pride ourselves on helping our guests to discover the real Bali. See our past reviews for what previous guests have thought of these memorable excursions.
