***GORGEOUS VILLA JANTUNG ON SALE! 25% OFF DAILY RATES... for select dates!
Your very own private fishpond and waterfall makes Villa Jantung a dream place to stay at Harmony. Situated with a commanding view of the gorgeous pool, deck and the rice fields beyond, Villa Jantung is a wonderful retreat for couples or a single person with a private tropical garden among fruit trees. Organized for indoor/outdoor living with an open plan living room and a full kitchen, the spacious bedroom will give you privacy with a canopied oversized queen bed and rich wooden decor. Just step outside to your private deck and patio perfect for lounging. Relaxing to the sound of falling water is an experience not to be missed to lull you to sleep (you can turn off the waterfall if you wish). The en-suite garden bathroom comes with a custom vanity, and generous pebble bed rain shower set amid the greenery. Your stay includes a fabulous daily cooked breakfast and full staff services.
The gorgeous 15 meter infinity pool at Harmony on the edge of the rice fields is only steps away from your private villa through Harmony's lush landscaping. 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 for use by all the villas at Harmony yet large enough for privacy. We don't have pool hours so feel free to take a moonlight swim at 3 am!
Staff at the villa will help you with all your needs from the wonderful daily cooked breakfasts of delicious pancakes or eggs, fresh tropical fruit tea or coffee and juice to start your day in paradise, arranging tours and sightseeing, car or scooter rental, personal laundry and itineraries as well as giving you tips for the best shopping and massage in Ubud. A private chef can also be arranged to cook you traditional Indonesian cuisine right in the privacy of your own villa in your fully equipped kitchen. Or, if you would like to do it yourself, book a private cooking class. Our chef is very reasonable and an amazing cook! We can also organize lunch or evening dining in your villa - just ask our staff at check in and they'll take good care of you.
For those wishing to cook for themselves, we are only one mile away from the main supermarket (Coco supermarket) so you'll be able to stock up with local provisions.
Villa Jantung is located on the edge of a huge rice paddy in the village of Lodtunduh, about 2.5 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....
Lodtunduh is very close to Ubud center but very quiet. It's a village of farmers and artisans. Villagers can be seen grooming their fighting cocks, drying rice on the road, or participating in the numerous religious festivals.
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 Jantung has 2 powerful overhead fans and a high ceiling to keep the air flowing. The breezes complemented by ceiling fans are usually enough to keep you cool even at the warmest time of year. You'll find our open tropical design for indoor/outdoor living works for your comfort.
Your villa stay includes daily breakfast (for up to two people), free wifi, a laptop sized safe, fully equipped kitchen, towels, TV/DVD, parking, laundry (by arrangement), daily staff service, nighttime security staff, a yoga deck, sun loungers and the priceless ambiance of the Harmony lifestyle.
Although we welcome children (our pool has a children's bathing area), Harmony isn't designed specifically as a child safe property so you will need to be responsible for them at all times.
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 have a flexible check in and out time and are happy to accommodate you if you are coming from outside of Bali. We can arrange airport pickup and drop off for you for a reasonable charge.
*** Please also note we must collect a 10% Indonesian government hotel tax payable upon check in which is payable in US$ or Indonesian Rupiah.
We can also arrange the following services:
• Yoga classes
• Car rental
• Car and driver
• Scooter rental
• Bike rental
• Laundry service (Extra charge)
• Tours and sightseeing
• Airport pickup and delivery (Extra charge)
Staff will meet you upon arrival at Harmony, show you to your villa and provide you with keys, wifi password and the house manual with suggestions on all the local sights to see, restaurants to visit and local tours for enhancing your stay.
... and finally .... enjoy the wonderful cycle of the rice paddys! Depending on when you visit you’ll see 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. It’s one of the best things about visiting Harmony! The cycle is fascinating to watch no matter when you come!

Harmony guests can use all the facilities. Harmony has a very large and beautiful infinity pool right on the edge of the rice fields that's perfect for laps or just hanging out and watching the sunset. The yoga deck has a hammock and breakfast area if you want to eat outside of your villa. All our villas are private from each other and each has a unique feature. Jantung has its very own private fishpond and waterfall
I'm not always in Bali as I travel extensively myself, but our staff are really wonderful and will treat you like family. If I'm lucky to be staying while you're there, I'm always available to give you tips and pointers on the best way to maximize your stay in Ubud and Bali.
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.
Lodtunduh, a quiet location where the villagers can often be seen grooming their fighting cocks, drying rice on the road, or participating in the numerous religious festivals. 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!
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!
Villa Jantung is one of five villas at Harmony and while Harmony is large enough so each Villa is private, it's small enough for community. We don't have a lot of rules except have maximum fun and relaxation
We ask you respect other guests privacy as they will yours and please don't smoke except on your private deck (not inside the villa). There's some basic stuff about being in a tropical environment; our staff will advise you on arrival. Please also note that although we love children Harmony is not designed to be a child safe property and if you do book with children you will need to be totally responsible for them at all times..
We do have a few suggestions though....
We like to suggest you support the village shops where you can buy your beer and snacks from the locals rather than going into town.
We have a resident dog called Trixie. She's a real sweetheart. Enjoy her.
Watch the rice... it's mesmerizing.
Nous avons passé 4 nuits au sein d'harmony villa et nous avons été enchanté par notre séjour. Tout était parfait, le cadre était incroyable avec un joli jardin et une belle piscine à débordement donnant sur les rizières environnantes. La villa était tout confort, le personnel discret et serviable. Le seul petit inconvénient concernant les villas était le fait qu'elles soient un peu reculées du centre de ubud il était donc indispensable d'être motorisé mais le personnel était là pour s'occuper de cela.
We stayed at Harmony Villas for 8 days and it was the highlight of our trip. The villas themselves are beautiful and private, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the pool was amazing. I couldn't fault it. In fact I am looking forward to my next trip to Bali just to stay here! I can't recommend Harmony Villas enough. Thankyou for a wonderful stay!
Highly recommended! Our five nights at Harmony Villas was not enough and we were sad to leave. Loved the open design of the villas, the pool and the view. Staff were friendly, breakfast delicious and they always helped with ordering food or a taxi.
The villas are a little out of Ubud, so not really walking distance. But it was easy to get a taxi and we loved being able to actually relax. Thank you!
One word.....WOW!!!!!!!!! First class experience all the way. The villa was outstanding, just beautiful....loved the decor, the rooms were extremely clean, the scenery....Unreal! This villa was exactly what we were looking for, surpassed all our expectations. The staff of this villa were so gracious, and first class all the way. We felt at home our entire stay, and it truly felt like we had the 'ubud village' experience with first class accommodations. I loved that we could get lost in any of the surrounding rice fields, and then come back for a swim and delicious breakfast at the luxurious villas. We were in great hands at the Harmony Villas, and this was our favorite stop during our 10 day trip in Bali. The villa is centrally located, and perfect spot for quiet serenity, with a 5 minute drive into town for shopping/restaurants. We are so grateful that we chose to stay at this villa during our time in Ubud!!! Michael's communication was awesome, immediate responses anytime I reached out. We would recommend this villa to family members and any friends going to Ubud. You will not be disappointed!!!!!! We cannot wait to come back and stay here next summer. Thank you for everything, Michael!! Our driver Agus and the chef Wayan Suriani were absolutely perfect. Best meals we had in Bali were cooked by your staff and Wayan Suriani. Also, your house manager was so kind and made us truly feel at home, and taken care of! We will be back :)
Thanks so much Kylie for such a wonderful review! We work so hard to make sure guests have the most wonderful, true Balinese experience at Harmony and we're so thrilled all your expectations were met. We would warmly welcome you back at any time and will also share your thanks with our amazing staff! Many thanks from all the Harmony team.
We count our selves lucky to have stayed here... We've love-it!!
Was a place hard to find as we've arrived late in the evening and even though we had an step by step directions from the Villa, gps & map being unfamiliar with the area proofed to be a bit of a challenge to find the place. But upon arrival even though the only employee available spoke very little English he was very welcoming and he made an effort to communicate and called us a taxi to take us to a restaurant to dine and to bring us back to our villa.
Our Villa was the "Jantung" and it was just as described, beautiful & luxurious with an open roof bathroom, all the way glass doors, very clean, nice touches all around and it really worth every cent... The next morning we were very early woke-up by loud noise of apparently employees being very loud but with a short message to the owner of the villa the Manager was at our door to see what the problem was and to offer a change of the villa (upgrade) explaining that maybe the problem was with the neighbours property; but upon checking the other villa even though it was way bigger I've liked mine and we've explained the manager that we wanted to stay put and that hopefully there would not be any more noise problems... And that was all about it... Problem was resolved immediately and without any delay we continued enjoying our holiday waking up late being surrounded by only the sounds of the nature while a freshly made breakfast was awaiting us and very kind smiles all the way from the kind employees... They've helped us with all, our laundry, renting a motor bike, listening to our wishes for breakfast... We've stayed for 5 nights and now we are in Sanur and we wish we would have stayed longer at Harmony Villas... I was very impressed how quick an issue can be resolved and how happy all employees worked for our enjoyable stay.
Every detail of the villa felt up to 5 star level, lots of privacy, calm, to ensure a great holiday. I definitely recommend this Villas... We were roaming around in our motorbike and there isn't any other place in Ubud we would have like to stay.
Dear Harmony Villas; thank you for your hospitality which was 5 star rating! Many hotels should learn from you that service is about being genuinely hospitable and caring of the guest concerns!
Many thanks for your wonderful review! So glad you had such an amazing experience at Harmony villas and enjoyed the beauty and serenity of Villa Jantung. We agree - Harmony is truly a special place and offers guests a unique, true Balinese experience like no other. Our staff strive to treat every guest like family and they appreciate all your kind comments. We'd warmly welcome you back next time you visit Bali! With our thanks from all the team at Harmony.
Liueu excellent : très reposant et typique. La vue sur mes rizières est magnifique. L'emplacement est parfait : à coté du centre ville en scooter ou voiture
My partner Tracey and I did enjoy our stay at the Harmony Villas in Ubud. This was our first time to Ubud and Bali itself.
The setting is very peaceful and we loved staying away from the bustle of the city centre. Michael also very kindly arranged an airport transfer for us [highly recommend taking this up]! The villa could feel a little isolated if you don't have a driver or a scooter to get around.
Contrary to some other comments below, it was a 15-20 minute drive into town [Jl Dewisita, Jl Hanoman & Jl Raya Ubud]! If you need a driver I would highly recommend asking Michael to book our driver Wayan Naja whom he booked for us. Wayan Naja made our stay in Ubud & Bali such a memorable experience and we loved every minute. We booked him for numerous day tours along with transfers to and from the Villa, even into the second part of our stay in Seminyak & Nusa Dua!
The staff at the villa are very friendly and the breakfasts were a highlight - and yes Trixie [the property dog] is included in that also.
The pool is a highlight of the villa and is very serene. We unfortunately had a family with kids stay at the same time and they seemed to take over the pool as their own so did not get to enjoy it for the beautiful tranquil setting that it is. No peace and quiet when they were around unfortunately! We then chose to spend more time in Ubud town centre as a result of the peace being disturbed.
We're so glad you had a wonderful stay at Harmony and enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the villa - we agree, our staff and drivers are simply wonderful and we appreciate all your kind comments. They treat our guests like family and we'll be so glad to pass on your thanks. They truely appreciate it. Thank you too - your comments regarding the pool and groups with young families are well noted. We do have many families stay at Harmony and of course the pool is a highlight. However we do like to mention to families to be mindful of other guests at all times and understand the need for individual privacy. Our staff are as unobtrusive as they can be to ensure guests have the experience desired and do ensure floors are mopped every two days (to protect the terazzo) and are given a daily sweeping as part of the daily room cleaning and service. We would warmly welcome you back to Harmony Sanjay and are so glad you had a wonderful time. Best regards, Michael and all the Staff

About the Host, Michael
I'm an educational filmmaker born in the UK, spent many years in Los Angeles, have an organic farm (still going) in Southern California and now travel a lot with bases in beautiful Bali.and equally beautiful Ojai, California. I've created Harmony Villas with my Balinese friend Wayan Nama in a modern tropical minimalist style to reflect our joint passions - connection with the land, no clutter, beauty and a wonderful environment. I'm equally passionate about providing a superlative experience for Harmony guests so they can have an authentic Bali vacation and truly relax.
