Your very own private fishpond and waterfall makes Villa Jantung a dream place to stay at Harmony. Situated with a commanding view of Harmony's 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.
Relaxing to the sound of your private waterfall 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.
We designed Jantung so guests could experience a truly tropical way of living. The villa living room has completely fold away glass walls and the soaring bamboo and thatch ceilings are light and airy. Step outside to your private deck and lounging area. Eat indoors at our custom kitchen table or outside on your patio.
The huge 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 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 the five villas at Harmony yet due to its size and differing guest schedules, it's rare not to have it to yourself. 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 at Harmony Villas 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 village is very close to Ubud center but lovely and quiet and away from traffic. Lodtunduh is mainly 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 being at Harmony - you'll feel like you are experiencing traditional Bali in a way most visitors don't.
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.
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!
It's cooler in the Ubud area than the beach. A/C is not needed at Harmony Villas 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 (Harmony 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

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 paddies! 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!

There's a taxi service right in our village to take you to and from the airport (about $24) and into town (about $4) 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!

Other Things to Note
Ubud is a gastronomic paradise with virtually every kind of food available just a few minutes from Harmony. Many offer take out and delivery, so you can eat in your villa, under the stars on your private deck, or on the pool deck. Our amazing private chef is available (by arrangement) to cook for you or give you Balinese cooking lessons.
Harmony is open to nature and you should expect visits from insects and lizards in our tropical climate. There are very few animals that are dangerous even although they may look so! But be prepared to be close to nature in all its beauty.
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.
Daily breakfast will be provided each morning between 8-11am. If you’d like to change or request specific breakfast times, please ensure you notify staff at check in.
Villa towels will be replaced every 3 days. If you'd like them changed more frequently, please make sure to let our staff know.
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.
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.
