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!
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 stayed at the villa for two nights while we visited beautiful Ubud. We had an amazing time! The villa offers a tremendous view and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Everything is perfectly clean and as described. The staff makes you feel more than welcome and is always very caring and helpful. Their driver Dewa is making sure that you discover more than just the touristy spots. We can just highly recommend to stay at Mark's villa whether you want to go on inspiring adventures or just relax in a beautiful atmosphere.
Marc schrieb die genaueste und ausführlichste Beschreibung die ich bei Airbnb bisher gelesen habe. Er hat wirklich an alles gedacht. Sein Team ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Villa ist tatsächlich eine grüne Oase unweit vom Stadtkern entfernt, somit eine super Lage aber doch ein perfekter Rückzugsort.
Großes Lob an die Dame die die Massage macht- sie ist wirklich die Allerbeste
Villa Satori is everything I imagined it to be! My family and I enjoyed swimming at the pool overlooking the rice fields. The master bedroom has so much space and I loved the outdoor shower and bath.
Wayan and Kadek made sure we were comfortable and prepared delicious breakfast and sweet treats for afternoon snack.
Sak Ming is very friendly and easy to talk to.
Dewa gave us first-class service driving us around and showing us all the places we wanted to see. He even brought us a to a village to experince a "temple ceremony" which made our trip even more memorable!
And Mark, since I started inquiring the villa more than 6 months ago, was very prompt in returning any questions. And he made us feel so welcome in his villa!
Thank you for making us feel the true Balinese experience!
From our initial enquiry, throughout our booking, and during our stay, Mark was always responsive and informative.
The staff at the villa were wonderful, helpful, and fun to be around.
The location of the villa suited our needs very well. The walk to town is a little tricky alongside a very well used road but alternative methods of getting around are readily available and affordable.
We enjoyed our stay at Satori immensely and would definitely stay again.

Villa Sattori is a great place to stay in Bali. Easy walk to Ubud center, Monkey Forest, Ubud Market and Palace during the day and easy to reach by foot some good places to eat at night. The highlight of the villa are Wayan and Dewa. Wayan is sweet and helpful and prepares delicious breakfasts and Dewa is always ready to take you to wonderful places, he walked us trough the countryside, took us visit a local family who invited us to come back to a ceremony later that day...He took us to a big ceremony at a temple, dressed all of us up with sarongs and head bands of his own. He just picked the best spots and took us everywhere with him as locals. Wayan and Dewa were on call 24/7 ... Wayan even called us once when she worried because we hadn't come back in time during of a heavy rain, she arranged for us to be picked up and taken back to Sattori!!! We are very grateful, this house was the perfect pick!!! Mark was also great to me since the first mail and kept in touch during our whole stay.
We stayed at Satori at the beginning of our honeymoon in February and absolutely loved it. It was truly such a perfect spot and we were so sad to leave. Wayan and Kadek are the two most lovely and welcoming people and we literally talked about the for the remainder of the trip. Dewa was also excellent to tour around with as he knew all the secret spots and was so nice and knowledgeable. We hope to go back to Satori one day soon, but in the meantime would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Ubud!!
Lovely stay in Ubud. The villa is like having your own little secret garden in Ubud. Pool is amazing, rooms lovely and staff perfect.
