The Space

***VILLA BUDI ON SALE!!! OVER 25% OFF REGULAR RATE. ***JULY 22 - 24TH ONLY!

Our Luxury Two Bedroom Tropical Villa Budi at Harmony Villas has the best location and views in all of Ubud just moments from town but unbelievably quiet and peaceful.

After a day in busy bustling Ubud or on a temple tour or other activities you need a place to relax. Villa Budi is the place. Your stay includes a fabulous daily breakfast and full staff services.

A stunning view over almost 270 degrees is the defining element of Villa Budi. From the massive uninterrupted sweep of the rice fields almost due south to the mountains in north and the terraces to the northeast, you'll live on the huge wrap-around outside decks and soak up Bali into your very bones. Villa Budi features a lovely entrance hall, indoor/outdoor dining and living areas and a large well equipped full kitchen area with granite counters and lots of storage.

Villa Budi is designed in modern minimalist style to celebrate tropical sophistication and endorse the healthy benefits of fresh air and natural lighting with an open living, dining and kitchen space overlooking an ocean of rice. It's a perfect spot to spend hours relaxing and swimming in the beautiful infinity pool right on the edge of the raised bluff.

The living room is tastefully furnished for relaxation with a large teak dining table and traditional Javanese sofa along with casual seating. The entire villa opens up to the north and west for complete indoor/indoor outdoor living.

The two bedrooms each soak up the ambiance of the ocean of rice to the west and north. The rear north-facing bedroom has a unique bed design that permits either a queen or two singles and a garden bathroom with spacious rain shower. The front bedroom looks out directly over the rice fields below and its bathroom has both a garden and a full tub as well as rain shower.

Villa Budi is your own private world yet steps away from Harmony's 15 meter infinity pool. The Harmony pool is situated on the very edge of the bluff overlooking the rice and has a shallow end seating area for relaxing after you've done your laps! It's central to all the Harmony villas yet large enough for privacy. We don't have pool hours so feel free to take a moonlight swim at 3 am!

One of the favorites of Budi's guests is to awaken before dawn and watch the early light lift the mist over the ocean of rice a few meters below the expansive deck with coffee in hand. It's an experience like no other in Bali. Stay long enough and you'll experience the whole cycle of rice cultivation from planting to harvesting and the local religious festivals celebrating Bali's unique cultural heritage.

Our staff will pamper you with an amazing daily breakfast (for up to four people), and full housekeeping services. A private chef can also be arranged to cook you traditional Indonesian cuisine right in your villa in your fully equipped kitchen.

Enjoy a wonderful daily cooked breakfast prepared in your villa each morning of delicious pancakes or eggs, fresh tropical fruit tea or coffee and juice to start your day in paradise! Breakfast will be prepared in your villa each morning at 8.00am, however if you would like to change breakfast times, please ensure you notify our villa manager at check in so we can accommodate you.

Villa Budi is located on the edge of a huge rice paddy in the village of Lodtunduh, about 2 km from Ubud and not far from the Monkey Forest and all the world class shopping on Hanuman Street and the cultural activities and restaurants in Ubud. We are very centrally located for all of Bali's sights and activities. Sanur beach is close (about 12 miles) and Seminyak. Kuta and Legian are easy drives for a whole day out with a different vibe. Or you can go up the hill to Kintamani and the hot springs at Lake Batur in an hour or so. Temples abound everywhere - from Besakih, the "Mother Temple" to Tanah Lot on the ocean (two of the most famous and holy) and we can organize tours to anywhere on the island and to Lombok too....

It's cooler in the Ubud area than the beach. A/C is not needed at Harmony due to our location right on the edge of the rice fields. We almost always get a breeze and Budi has 4 powerful overhead fans and a huge high ceiling to keep the air flowing. You'll find our design for indoor/outdoor living works for your comfort.

There's free wifi, 2 laptop sized safes towel service, TV/DVD, parking, laundry (by arrangement), daily staff service, a yoga deck, lush landscaping and the priceless ambience of the Harmony lifestyle.

The Villa is available for daily rental (2 night minimum please) or longer. Please ask us for rates for longer term stays (over 10 days). We do not have a set check in or out time to meet your needs if you are coming from outside of Bali. We can arrange airport pickup and drop off for you for a reasonable charge. ***Please note we must collect a 10% Indonesian government hotel tax payable upon check in.

Although we welcome children (our pool has a child' bathing area) Harmony isn't designed specifically as a child safe property so you will need to be responsible for them at all times..

We can also arrange the following services:

• Yoga classes
• Massage
• Car rental
• Car and driver
• Scooter rental
• Bike rental
• Laundry service (Extra charge)
• Tours can be arranged
• Airport pickup and delivery (Extra charge)

Guest Access

Guests can use all the facilities at Harmony. Designed so each villa is private but with a sense of community, the infinity pool and yoga deck on the edge of the ricefields is very large and and always feels private. All our villas are private and Budi has a huge wrap around deck facing north to Mt Agung and Mt Batukaru and west to the amazing sunsets

Interaction with Guests

I'm not always in Bali but our staff will look after you hand and foot. If I'm there I'm always available to give you tips and pointers on the best way to maximize your stay in Ubud and Bali.

The Neighborhood

Our village is still mostly agricultural and its a fascinating place to experience real Bali village life which can't be found in touristy areas such as Kuta or Seminyak. That's the lovely thing about our area of Lodtunduh village.

You'll likely encounter ceremonies, celebrations, weddings, a cremation perhaps (a big event in Bali) , the local temple festivals. But most of all you'll see (depending on when you visit) the fascinating cycle of rice farming from preparing the fields, planting seedlings, thinning out the new rice, watching the ducks do their amazing dances, to harvesting, threshing and drying.

You'll go for a walk in the village and probably see the village men parade their fowl and perhaps experience a cockfight – although you may not approve, it’s very much a part of village culture. If you want you can wager and maybe win!

Getting around

There's a taxi service right in our village to take you to and from the airport (about $30) and into town (about $5) a few minutes away and we can also rent you scooters (and helmets!) for about $6 per day. There's parking at the villa. Please note although the airport is only about 20 miles away it can take about an hour and a half. The roads are small and there's a lot of traffic in Bali!

  • There are not enough superlatives to describe our time at Harmony Villas. The rice is mesmerizing and soothing and creates a good contrast to the busyness of Ubud. The staff is warm, friendly, helpful and accommodating. Fabulous breakfasts are made to order. Because of its special location the villas can be tricky to find and the design of the villa means sounds travel easily (walls don't go all the way to the ceiling). This was our favorite place in the two weeks we spent in Bali. We highly recommend it!

  • Fantastic place to stay in Ubud! The view is amazing, it's even better than the pictures. We enjoyed so much waking up and seeing the rice paddies just in front of us. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and Michael was throughout the booking and stay super responsive.

    Would definitively recommend to anyone and I hope to go back soon.

  • One of the very best places we have ever stayed. There are not enough superlatives.

    Beautiful. Quiet. Clean. Impeccable service. Friendly. 10 minutes to Ubud.

    Great cooked to order breakfast.

    Wonderful location beside tranquil working rice paddies, Beautiful Sunsets (west facing.).

    would recommend 120% !! (typo intended.)

    Value for money.

  • Fantastic place with attention to detail. Best part was that the LED light installation which did not attract any bugs. Clever. Million $ view is not an overstatement. Children enjoyed the pool and lounging around with Trixie. I enjoyed the daily breakfast, home made meals delivered to the villa and endless opportunity to lounge while contemplating life. My favorite memory remains swimming under the stars every night.

    Michael made fantastic recommendations - diving was easily arranged. Mosaic dinner was divine. Our staff onsite were pleasant, friendly and helpful.

    The villa had sweeping view of the rice paddy. Exceptionally beautiful day AND night.

    Children did not want to leave. They loved the place. And trixie the dog.

    Will recommend it to everyone who wants to travel to Bali.

  • This property is beautifully appointed with panoramic views of the surrounding rice paddy fields. A truly sweet and gracious staff on property can help you with anything you might need. Each unit is sited intelligently to provide for maximum privacy and contains climate-adapted design features such as glass floor-to-ceiling folding doors that open widely to provide for cross-ventilation and access to the surrounding decks. The bathrooms are luxuriously large and private with charming indoor-outdoor features. The gentle winds and landscape are always just a few feet away where you can sit on your deck mesmerized for hours on end by the sounds of Balinese chanting in the distance, quacking ducks in the fields below, or just let your thoughts drift away in the peacefulness of the rural setting all around. The Ubud town center is just 5 minutes away by taxi as long as there is no traffic. Be aware that at peak traffic hours conditions can extend that time by as much as 5-10 times. There are many choices for dining in Ubud town, but as well, there are plenty of restaurants that apparently deliver, although we did not experiment with this. Overall, you will enjoy a deluxe environment with a wonderful infinity pool that makes the place difficult to leave!

  • The accommodations exceeded our expectations, surroundings were magical and the staff was exceptional. Definitely recommend Villa Budi at Bali Harmony. The villa is clean, updated and perfect for two couples. The location is great, just a few minutes from central Ubud yet peaceful, quiet and world away from any real world. We have not felt so taken care of anywhere in a long time. The staff made every effort to make sure we were taken care of and our stay was exceptional. We will be back!

  • A prefect place to relax and unwind!
    From the initial contact on this site to departure, Camille was incredibly helpful even allowing me to stay on a few extra hours at the villa before we left for the airport.
    The villa is beautiful and exactly as it shows on the site.
    All the staff are very happy and very helpful with arranging cars etc.
    The only thing to note is that due to the style of the villas, there are not any fixed walls, so beware if you are worried about noise privacy!
    Also, as the villas are beautifully isolated and quiet, you do need to be a bit prepared when it comes to provisions as there is not really anywhere close by that you can just get to quickly.
    All in all a wonderful stay and I hope to be back in the not too distant future!

  • Michael and Camille, who looks after the property, are fantastic hosts. Harmony is a gorgeous base to enjoy the serenity of Ubud. A beautiful property in a unique setting. Great communication and attention to detail! Thanks!
