A beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Away from the busier part of Ubud but close to a few great restaurants, and organic grocery. Also felt very looked after and taken care of by villa staff. Fantastic!
Yogis gem was the perfect place for me. The photos do not do it justice, from the moment you go through the front door you realize you are in your own paradise. Its peaceful, private and it has the must amazing feel to it. Christabel is just beautiful she makes you feel most welcome and has an incredible love of life that radiates from her. The villa is situated in a lovely area, the walk to and from the road is just beautiful, along pathways through rice fields. I will always have amazing memories of my stay here.
I loved staying at Christabels home for my first week in ubud. She was welcoming and gave me lots of information on what I wanted to know about upon arrival. The villa is lovely, safe, private and very comfortable. The surroundings are also very pleasant. Christabel was a lovely and beautiful host and has created a beautiful living space that she shared kindly.
I had a wonderful stay with Christabel for nearly 2 weeks in March 2014. She's a graceful hostess that not only makes sure you are settled in, but makes great suggestions for activities, spas and restaurants to visit during your stay. The room is large and comfortable, and a quiet space to regain energy and serenity after spending busy days in Ubud. The villa staff are super friendly and helpful, and the always smiling security made me feel safe at night! I have stayed in many places in Ubud, and this place is truly a gem, and a great value for your money. If you decide to stay here, I don't think you will be disappointed. Christabel is 100% trustworthy and a beautiful soul.
Christabel's place was amazing, she was so helpful yet non intrusive. The room and outdoors area was so beautiful and the pool stunning. Couldn't fault a thing. Christabel gave a locals experience and advised some great things to do and we meant some lovely people there too. Her breathwork workshops were powerful healing experiences and are highly recommended. Thanks for a great stay Christabel. kelly and Stephen
THE PLACE AND CHRISTABEL ARE AMAZING....
The photos do not give the experience of staying here!
Do yourself a favor and JUST BOOK NOW.....!!
Pandok Rama is a little oasis in Penestanan (just outside central Ubud). I found it a great, relaxing and revitalising place to stay.
To start with the location: it is a 6 minute wander down the hill from the main road, 3 minutes by bicycle. In total it is less than 15 minutes by bicycle (or you could rent a scooter instead but that's not as much fun imho) or 30 minutes walk from central Ubud. On the main road are several cafes and restaurants, including Alchemy (which has amazing juices and raw food - although note these are at Western, not Balinese prices).
Because the villa is away from the main road and also away from the walking/scooter pathway, it’s nice and quiet and I slept very soundly (which I didn’t at another couple of places I ended up staying at later).
The villa itself is modern, well designed and has a lovely pool and peaceful garden. The room has a comfy bed, a pleasant bathroom (with toiletries supplied) and there’s aircon if you need it. The wifi was reliable and I enjoyed the fresh juices and fruit salads for breakfast.
Christabel was a great host - organising her driver to pick me up from the airport, waiting up for me when I arrived late at night, lending me a mobile phone for local calls, helping me rent a bicycle and advising me on places to eat and visit (including good places for massages - which is important advice in Ubud where massages are of highly variable quality).
From my point of view, the villa is good value. Yes, there are plenty of cheaper places in and around Ubud, but from my research that usually means they are noisier or don’t have a pool and/or have dodgy wifi. In addition, the advantage of Christabel’s place is that you are sharing her home, she’s a gracious host and for me, it was a delightful experience.
Christabel is a treasure. The thing about Christabel is that if you hang around her long enough you actually end up liking yourself a little more. She bright, enthusiastic, quick to see the good in people, crazy intelligent and doesn't spend much time dwelling on the things that don't work. She's a great communicator and loves being surrounded by beauty. I'm sure you'll discover this for yourself if you get a chance to live with her.
Christabel is a kind and gentle soul. Although we've never lived together she brings a softness and beauty to every space she occupies. I'd gladly share a living space with her.
In two words STAY THERE! Its a gorgeous place in every way. If you are looking for a lush goddess inspired, balinese accom experience, choose this place. Amazing location in the rice padi's close to one of the best organic Cafe hangouts in Ubud. And a wonderful hostess toboot! Highly recommended!
Oh how blessed are those who find them in the presence of this divine being! What a beautiful home you have much like your heart! Enjoy All. Amara Samata
I have known Christabel for well over a decade. We have been involved in dance performance together, I have taken her teacher trainings, I even worked as an employee for her at one point long ago. She is always a pleasure, easy going, honest, sweet, grounded, with the highest integrity. She is one of the most multi-facted beings I know, a true gem, who lives her life detected to assisting others along their paths towards full self/spirit empowerment, health and wellbeing. I highly recommend her in every way.
Christabel is a conscious and kind house mate! She loves to keep her space beautiful and has stellar communication skills. She is respectful and fun to be around :) She is also resourceful, positive, and a good friend. She is a wonderful person to share space with!
Christabel has rented my place several times. She is the perfect guest. I am always happy to see her for many reasons. ...she behaves impeccably and is extremely good company....just for starters. I bless the day Christabel walked into my life.
Christabel is a dynamic and enthusiastic facilitator who I recommend highly. She's a clear and present space able to create breakthroughs and deep transformations for others. <3
A conscious goddess of love and light, Christabel's radiance lights up the world. The opportunity to share space with this fun and graceful woman is a blessing.
Christabel is an inspiring, radiant and beautifully positive person. I love her energy! We have done some work together and I have always appreciated her clear yet kind way of communicating. Thank you for being part of my community - sharing space with you is a treat.
