About this listing
On the edge of town, yet hidden from the hustle behind high walls, our beautiful Villa sits in a secret garden that feels like a movie set. Overlooking a temple & some of the last rice fields in central Ubud a stay here will be a magical experience!
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!

Outstanding stay. Couldn't ask for anything better. Beautiful place, great location, wonderful and attentive staff. Breakfast is amazing every morning, Wayan helped us arrange massages and a scooter for our stay. Mark went more than out of his way to take care of our needs from afar. Couldn't possibly recommend Villa Satori any more.
What a superb time we had at the villa. The location, pool and view, staff and host were all amazing. My two sons, aged 5 & 8, my wife and I just loved it. Can't wait to go back there. I would recommend staying there to anyone, couples families or friends - it suits all.
Need only reinforce all the very positive comments everyone else has provided. Communication with Mark was great, the villa superb, and time to engage with the very friendly and helpful villa "family" a highlight, providing a connection to the real Bali. Brilliant!
My family's stay at satori was wonderful, the villa itself was beautiful and comfortable and the staff were fantastic.
Whilst there is some road noise walking through the gates was like entering another world.
We instantly felt comfortable and were happy doing very little other than relaxing watching films, sitting in the garden and splashing in the pool.
We just LOVED Satori; the villa is gorgeous, clean, bright an very well equiped. The staff went out of their way to help us out with any request (e.g. they organised a private cooking class, arranged an in house cook who prepared a great dinner when friends came to visit us etc etc). They really make you feel at home and are amazingly friendly. We are a family with three little boys aged 2,3 and 5 yrs old and despite all the chaos and 'liveliness' that brings along, the staff just seemed to love them and were always understanding and patiënt with them. We also made several day trips with Dewa (white sand beach, sanur, village funeral, food moon ceremony) which were all great. But the super bonus was , withouten a doubt, the attendence of Wayans wedding ceremony, that was just unforgettable. Thank you so much Wayan for inviting us, we all felt honoured to be there! Mark was also amazingly friendly and very very responsive, eventhough hè was travelling himself in a completely different timezone, he always responded very quickly. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely house with the five of us. It was a great start for our two month Indonesia adventure!
This amazing property was just as promised and absolutely beautiful. Wayan was delightful, accommodating and very helpful. We hung out a lot in the Villa, preferring to enjoy the surroundings and totally decompress. We enjoyed massages in the Villa which were provided by a local spa. We swam, watched movies, slept, read and were serenaded by the ceremonies held in the local temple on Saturday. It was heaven.
