About This Listing
Right on the edge of town, yet hidden away from the busy streets of Ubud by a high wall, our Villa is set in a secret garden, overlooking working rice fields and a temple - this is the best of both worlds!
SOME SINGLE NIGHTS LEFT IN JULY (PLEASE MESSAGE FOR SINGLE NIGHT BOOKING!) AND A FEW DAYS LEFT IN AUGUST BEFORE WE ARE FULLY BOOKED TO NOVEMBER - HURRY WE'D LOVE TO HOST YOU HERE!
Situated near the heart of the bustling artistic and cultural centre of Ubud, Bali, Satori is our home for half the year which we are delighted to share with others while we are away.
If you're after an isolated, out of the way retreat, then Satori may be a little too urban for you. Here we offer the best of both worlds, close proximity to all the wonderful services and cultural experiences that Ubud offers, within a truly magical setting! Step directly from the hustle and bustle of Ubud life though a doorway to another world, a stunning oasis, of water features, jungle garden and beautiful rice field views.
We are pleased to offer single night bookings only if there is a single night available between two other bookings.
We offer 2 accommodation options to select from. The Villa (our home for half the year) listed here, or at the top of the property the self-contained Treehouse (our guest house) listed here...
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 shared use of the massage studio.
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 3D/HD projector and boasting a growing library of over 100 movies and TV shows. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining and is fitted with imported kitchenware, vegetable/fruit juicer and espresso machine.
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 an Ipod dock/speaker system. It has a magical al fresco shower and garden bath.
The charming Guest Suite boasts a stunning view and features a queen size bed, flat screen cable TV and DVD 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.
The shared yoga/massage studio lies between the Villa and the neighboring Treehouse. It's furnished with two quality massage tables, yoga mats, oil burner and a stereo system pre-loaded with relaxing sounds and music. Pick from our menu of talented massage therapists to visit for the perfect end to a memorable Bali day!
At your service...
While there is no doubt Satori's accommodation and setting will impress we predict it will be our wonderful staff that will ensure your stay is truly memorable. Sak Ming our manager knows Ubud like few others. She is on call to help you with any query or problem. Kadek our Treehouse housekeeper, and Wayan our Villa housekeeper love to receive guests and help in anyway that might make your stay more comfortable.
Our staff can assist you in arranging almost anything, at cost price. We never receive a commission or kick back from any service or company we might recommend. We simply want you have to have an amazing experience, at the best price possible.
Our home is handily placed only 2km from the heart of Ubud's dining/shopping area.
The propert 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. Making your home away from home at Satori means the magic of daily Balinese life is all around....
Satori is a celebration of all that is Bali. We hope you'll allow us the opportunity to create for you a truly magical getaway!

We loved our time at Satori and would highly recommend the Villa for those wanting to relax, away from the hustle and bustle. The Villa was spacious, clean, well maintained and very comfortable, perfect for spending time in. We were so content that we only ventured out for a few hours each day. The view was fabulous, we were endlessly entertained by the herding of the ducks and their antics in the rain. The staff were friendly, wonderfully helpful and unobtrusive, as was Mark, the owner. Everything was at our finger tips, onsite massage, restaurant recommendations, transport and great breakfasts!
It was amazing! Beyond amazing! My friend and I had the best trip to Bali, having Wayan and Sak Ming helping us with our plans and teaching us how to drive a motor bike made us feel so safe and comforted to know someone was looking out for us :) we felt like family! Dewa is by far the best driver in Bali, so sweet and just on point timing and helping us find exactly what we were looking for. Next time I go to Bali I plan to stay here my entire trip :) the house is exactly how I would do my home and more, it has everything you need.
WOW... 6 thumbs up! If you want to experience authentic Bali while feeling like you're in paradise this is the place to stay. The house was beautiful, the staff were exceptional (we miss them already) and the location cannot be beat. Wayan cooks a delicious breakfast, and was very helpful in assisting us to make plans around the island. Dewa was a phenomenal guide and drove us all over Bali, both to places we requested and to gems we would have never known about. After traveling around Asia for a month this was our favorite stop and it had a ton to do with our stay at Satori. We will be back!!
Satori is truly heaven on earth. The staff were absolutely amazing. You will definitely see me again Satori :)
Truly incredible villa. Great view, good location! Memories were made and cannot say enough great things about staff and property. Truly great bali experience!!
It's a very nice place with rice field view. Our family spent a great time in the villa, and had a lot fun in the pool. The staff there provided great and timely service to us. On the check-out day, although our flight is in early morning, they came early to the villa and prepared our breakfast. Wayan is nice and friendly. My baby had a lot fun time with her.
Everything at Satori was as described or better! The villa, the location, the house staff, and Bali were all amazing! Mark was very responsive to us throughout the booking, preparation, and actual trip. Incredible host! Wayan and Kadek (the housekeepers) are so kind and gracious that you feel right at home with them. They work very hard to take care of the villa, make wonderful breakfasts, and make everything perfect. Wayan (the gardener)maintains an absolutely beautiful property. Dewa, the driver, was not only a reliable and safe driver for routine needs, but also took us on day trips to experience the daily Balinese life. These trips provided my family and I memories for a lifetime. Finally, Sak Ming, the manager, was available whenever needed and made sure everything about the trip ran smoothly. By the time we left, we felt like we were leaving family. Mark provides excellent suggestions on activities throughout Bali. Try the white water rafting, the Champuam Ridge walk, the day tours of the island, in-house massages, and you won't be disappointed. Thanks everyone on the Satori team for making this a trip of a lifetime. We will do our best to get back again!
