Situated near the heart of the bustling artistic and cultural centre of Ubud, Bali, Satori offers comfortable accommodation in a jungle garden setting with stunning rice field views. My home for half the year is a beautiful property that I am thrilled to share with others when I am away. It is our aim to provide you a wonderful base for a a truly memorable Balinese adventure!
NEWS FLASH: We were just advised we have been nominated as a Bali finalist in 2014 AIRBNB HOST OF THE YEAR AWARDS.

For those of you who haven't experienced a Bali adventure with us yet, make a plan, we'll do our very best to give you a 5 star experience too! :-)
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 that bustling Ubud offers, within a truly magical setting! We're handily situated a short distance from the heart of the village, hidden behind a high wall at the gateway to the village that offers no clue to the stunning property and rice fields that lie behind it.

The Villa at Satori:
The newly furnished and 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 fully equipped massage / yoga studio.
It is somewhat rare around Ubud in that it features a living area that can be made outdoor OR indoor, depending on your preference.
The large dining/living area opens up on three sides to water features and the exclusive use pool that reaches out toward the rice field/temple view. This is one of the many features that makes Satori somewhat unique. Most traditional style villas have their living areas always open to the elements, truly outdoor rooms and kitchens. While that affords it's benefits it also means that for many properties only your bedrooms have protection from all the life that living in the tropics brings.
At Satori the choice is yours. You can slide the windows back to have traditional outdoor living, or, if bugs and critters show up, simply slide them closed while still enjoying the postcard view!
Relax, read or entertain in this tranquil space or make use of, arguably, the best home cinema in Ubud, 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 (whether you're manning it personally, or you're leaving it all to our wonderful housekeeper Wayan) In addition to being equipped with imported kitchenware the kitchen features a washer/dryer, 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, 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 with luxury 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. Wayan our Villa housekeeper loves to receive guests (and their children!) and is on hand daily to clean, shop, wash clothes, cook light meals and help in anyway that might make your stay more comfortable. Finally Nengah our driver can be called upon at anytime, for airport pick ups, day tours or simply to buzz you around town at a great price.
At Satori we 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.
Satori 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!

Three days of heaven ! We will be back . From the moment we walked in the door we were in awe of this little piece of paradise . The amazing hillside setting with its lush beautifully kept gardens overlooking the rice paddies just brings instant tranquility . We spent each morning sitting on our swinging chair drinking tea and watching the swallows swoop around the giant fig tree.
To add to the amazing location, Wayan , Kadek and Sak Ming looked after us and made us feel so welcome and pampered . They are the most beautiful people and felt like family . It was a pleasure to learn more about the Balinese culture from them . The food was amazing . The rooms comfortable , clean and linen so fresh . Dewa the driver was always there to help .
We could not have asked for more . Can't wait to come back .
We left Satori with so much good memories of the beautiful paradise you have created. For my old parents in law to say that they felt young again was truly heartwarmimg to hear.
Wayan, Kadek and Kadek the driver are such gems. We felt like family.
They made it so easy.
Our stay at Satori have been a five star retreat paradise. Its property so well thought and built blending in the beautiful nature surroundings. The staff are extremely helpful and service minded. They maid us feel safe and we could just relax and enjoy. Location is so perfectly situated. Near to Udub center.
Thank you Mark and your staff so much for this time and we hope to see you soon.
Anandh and family.
Perfect in every way! Mark was great to work with and always got back to me quickly. The staff was amazing! Wayan is so fun to talk with an will keep you laughing. The villa is beyond words! A beautiful spirutul setting that is like living in a dream. And it's close enough to town to walk. The view from the pool will take your breath away every time.
Had an amazing 6 weeks. The villa, pool, garden, view of the rice fields and above all the staff made it the most beautiful holiday we have ever had! Open the gate from the street and you think you've arrived at the Garden Of Eden! Thank you Mark. Lovely!
Our stay at Satori was fantastic! We were looked after so well, and the villa was every bit as beautiful as the photos. The 5 star resorts in Nusa Dua do not come close to the hospitality and accommodations that Satori provides.
We have already recommended to friends and family, and will most certainly be back!
We loved staying here. The staff were wonderful. They were incredibly helpful and friendly, and made us feel totally at home. Started every morning with Wayan's incredible fruit mountain breakfast, which we enjoyed by the pool overlooking the rice paddies. Heaven! It's very close to town, so we hired a scooter and zipped around enjoying the sites of Ubud. Can't really fault this place, the rooms were 5 star, and my partner particularly liked the expansive bathroom with it's outdoor shower. They seem to have thought of everything, there is even a projector so you can relax at night and watch you're favourite movie with the gorgeous infinity pool as a a backdrop. Only problem is you won't want to go home!
Looks like paradise? The pictures cannot even capture closely how beautiful this place is!
I stayed for almost 10 days at Satori, mostly at the Villa, and I simply LOVED it there - after arriving it took me about 30 minutes to realize that this is all real.
Satori is an amazing hideout for everyone who needs to relax, to get a timeout and enjoy the Balinese landscape. It just made me speechless every morning when I woke up, how stunning the entire place is – I could forever lay in the infinity pool, stare at the rice paddies, read a book and just breathe in the warm Bali-Spirit.
Speaking of warmth, Wayan and Kadek, the housekeepers, took perfect care of me - although I blame them for a serious Fruitmountain-Addiction (I’m usually not the breakfast fan but I never ate anything comparable and was looking forward to it every evening already – you have to try THIS!) – they both are just so sweet and help you with anything you need. They always smile have such a happy spirit. Plus Wayan’s homemade sambal is absolutely gorgeous!
Enough of the food – the Villa and the Treehouse are located a bit outside downtown Ubud, but neither walking or taking a cab/ scooter is a big deal. I always preferred to walk downtown and go back by taxi. Wayan, Kadek or Sak Ming (the Manager, who is such a sweet person too) will be happy to organize you a Scooter for rent or a driver. I took a daytrip with Dewa and it was really funny and interesting, because he does not only drive you, he can also provide you with useful tips and insights on Balinese culture too.
The entire place is really created with love – while the Villa is really luxurious and spacious, the Treehouse is very cosy and has a balcony with a great view. I think it’s perfect to rent the entire place with family or/ and friends and I’ll definitely come back to Satori…and I thank Mark for having created such an island of peace inside the island I love!
Our stay in the villa was absolutely superb, it's such a beautiful place and the setting was amazing. The Villa staff Wayan and Kadek were great too, so warm and welcoming and so helpful with organising drivers, lunch, massage etc at the villa.
Our driver Dewa (organised by the villa) was also really good and we continued to use him while we were there. Very easy going, happy to suggest a few things and show us some beautiful parts of Bali whilst avoiding some of the touristy spots which was perfect for us.
We really couldn't fault anything about our stay there, it was a real pleasure and I would highly recommended Villa Satori.
Thanks for making our trip to Ubud so enjoyable and relaxing.
We spent six nights in the Villa at Satori. If you are reading this review and don't book this place, you need your head read. The Villa, the garden, and the view across the rice fields are divine. We woke each morning to swooping swallows, a gaggle of ducks wadding through the rice fields and fresh fruit salad prepared by the Villa's staff.
All of the staff were friendly, genuine, funny and helpful people. The house is cleaned, food cooked if you want it (by providing shopping money), the rooms, pool and garden cleaned every day. Drivers can be organised, either the quick trip into town, or around the island. We used Tony a lot, and he was safe, funny and knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble.
The centre of the village is an easy 30 minute walk, or a 5 minute drive away. We spent our evenings in the villa - in the pool, eating Wayan's cooking or home delivered food (lots of choices), and watching movies.
We will be back!
This is an awesome place. Since the other reviews already say it all I just want to describe my most favorable memory: Floating in the pool looking across green rice field and hearing the sounds of bells of a Hindu ceremony in the close by temple.
