Brand new Magical Treehouse! (opened April '16)
Rather than clear trees for rebuilding our Treehouse we left them where they were and built a new luxury villa right around them. The result - our Magical Treehouse was re-born, with trees growing right through the middle of the two-story villa. All this overlooking a breathtaking rice field / jungle view with private pool.
Once you're inside our secret garden at Satori you won't believe how close you are to the bustle of the town of Ubud. In front of you stunning rice fields, temple and swaying coconut trees and jungle. If you're after an isolated and silent out-of-the-way retreat, then Satori may be a little too urban for you. We are on the main road into Ubud and are able to offer you the best of both worlds - close proximity to everything important, including "urban" benefits of home delivery from dozens of quality restaurants, massage and spa treatments delivered poolside, and super fast internet, something most other properties cannot offer!
Choose to sleep either upstairs or down. Both rooms are around 40 sqm, including their own beautifully appointed bathroom.
The upstairs room opens to a balcony with cosy hanging chair, and breathtaking views of jungle, rice fields and the temple. It features a flatscreen TV with DVD, Cable TV and HDMI input for connecting your own computer. You have access to a huge DVD library, including classic, foreign and art house film. For music connect your device via bluetooth or cable. You'll relax in style on our custom made leather king bed with quality mattress, pillows and linen - that looks straight out to the vista.
The bathroom upstairs features a hand-made terrazzo bathroom cabinet, and a rain-head shower that opens up to the jungle and rice field view.
Downstairs a queen bed converts to a cushion-covered daybed, a well-appointed compact kitchenette, a Bose speaker system to channel your own music, and a sliding glass wall that opens to your private, infinity edge, plunge pool, nestled in a jungle garden.
The downstairs bathroom features a shower with floor to ceiling sliding doors that open directly to a waterfall curtain, and through that, access to your very own generous-sized plunge pool.
A path beside the pool leads to your private outdoor terrace. Sun loungers and a beautiful handmade terrazzo bathtub sit overlooking the rice field and rice field temple. A perfect spot to float with a glass of your favourite something and contemplate the ever-changing light on the picture-perfect vista.
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. Your host Sak Ming knows Ubud like few others. She is on call to help you with any query or problem. Our housekeepers will treat you like family. The genuinely LOVE to host, and will try to help in any way that might make your stay more comfortable.
Our staff can assist you in arranging almost anything, at cost price. We never receive payment from any service or company we might recommend. We simply want you have to have an amazing experience, at the best price possible - and we're very good at making that happen!
Our home is handily placed only 1.4km (less than 1 mile) from the heart of Ubud's dining/shopping area, though there are many shops and cafes even closer. We are also on the same road as Yoga Barn, a great spot for yoga, mediation, cleansing and healing classes.
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. 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!

In addition we are always available to help you with anything you need to organize, book or get advice on. A VIP service unlike almost any other Airbnb villa - we're here for you in every way!
Our housekeepers, a combination of Wayan, Sakde, Adi and Ayu begin at 7.30 and work until around 7pm each day. They will make the breakfast and clean the entire villa each day, along with booking massages, scooters/drivers, arranging excursions - just like having your own personal Balinese concierge. 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.
