Holiday on our private estate on the famous Sayan Valley edge, just a few minutes from Ubud town. We have a remarkable collection of bamboo buildings as well as antique all teak bridal houses from Java, each with individual design characteristics that cocoon guests in comfort in a staggeringly beautiful all natural environment
We collected these houses over several years, originally for our friends and families to stay with us. Our estate is now available for all to enjoy!
Ubud, as seen in the movie Eat Pray Love, has now become famous as glamorous destination for lovers, business people, authors, cyclists, walkers, and many others. Come and find out why!
Our Africa themed House
The largest and most sequestered of all our homes, having interior space of over 40 square meters, it features furnishings from a private collection from Africa. The feel is one of spaciousness and primitive beauty as you sit on the rawhide bench from Ethiopia, or take tea on the wooden stools and antique trays.
If you prefer a more Balinese experience, the en suite private bale next door or the estate deck provides a wonderful sitting or dining area. Or you can choose to relax with afternoon tea or cocktails from your private lounge chairs. Watch the sunsets overlooking the Ayung River, Balinese rice farmers in their fields, and miles of coconut tree jungle. We harbor one the best views of the Sayan Ridge in Ubud.
This home also has 2 beds, an oversized bathroom with a generous rain shower and an exquisite hand-hammered, indulgent copper tub. The natural pool provides a background serenity of running water.
The bathroom runs both hot and cold water, with the best pressure in Ubud, and the Africa themed House is equipped with a safety box, a mini bar fridge, AC, and in room Estate intercom. The house water supply is triple filtered using a colloidal silver and reverse osmosis process. A local laundry service is available to guests, and motorbikes and local mobile phones are also available for rent, and a Yoga service is also available. The reception also offers exclusive local excursions, and can also help arrange push bike rentals or bike tours. Guests can also enjoy a massage or body treatment on our Estate. The Estate has 24 hour security.
Our on-site kitchen prepares delicious Indonesian food, from fresh ingredients. Our breakfast is also complimentary, and includes fresh roasted organic local coffee for cappuccinos which we can deliver to your house. At 4pm, complimentary tea is served on our sunset Bale

Stunning All Bamboo House near Ubud
All Bamboo 3 storey House Pool WIF
Very unique, charming property, quite educational and you need to be "open to green" to be able to fully enjoy it.
Africa House is special and nice - however overpriced in comparison to other properties in Ubud. Considering that you have very limited privacy and in the evening - during the magic moment of sunset - you have people sitting right in front of your villa and you feel like a monkey in the zoo...
We paid over USD 400 per night and Front Desk couldn't even provide an extension of 30 min late check out....
Breakfast also simple but good. Food and beverage - small but nice and typical regional selection.
