Royal Palace, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

In Bali’s spiritual heart of Ubud, lies the private and serene Villa San.

This six-bedroom luxury villa accommodates up to twelve people set across lush gardens that center around a 25m lap pool and incorporate elegant sculptures and a tranquil meditation terrace.

Showcasing an impressive array of artworks and handicrafts originating from China, Africa and Indonesia, Villa San is only minutes from sensational shopping, superb spas, classic cultural performances and luxuriant rice fields.

The spacious grounds of this Ubud retreat offer freedom and flexibility for both families and large groups sharing, with hammocks and sun loungers arranged around the 25m x 5m pool and a pool pavilion seating up to 15 people.

Inside, as well as the living and dining spaces, there are two well-equipped entertainment rooms, a gym and a children’s playroom.

French doors from all of Villa San’s six large bedrooms – three doubles and three twins – look out over tranquil gardens, only steps away from the long sloping lawn and the inviting pool.

Guests at Villa San are spoiled for choice when it comes to ways to relax.

Reflecting the owners’ artistic and spiritual leanings, there’s the loft studio for painting, a telescope for star-gazing from the function room at night, and a Buddhist stupa and yoga terrace tucked in a quiet corner of the property for group or individual meditation and yoga practice.

A friendly, helpful team of staff are on hand around the clock, with a butler and chef available to meet every request.

They are knowledgeable about the local Hindu culture, art galleries and the many options for exploring and learning about the region and will recommend the best of local restaurants, cafés and spas.

Villa San is a stone’s throw from Ubud’s Royal Palace – where cultural performances are held nightly – and very convenient for many of Ubud’s favourite treasures and attractions.
While the property itself is very quiet and private, a vast, bustling local market is only 300m from the front door while a delightful variety of high quality restaurants and cafés can be found in and around the centre of town.
Ubud and her surrounding small villages are rich with culture and art.
Many villages focus on a specific craft – such as woodworking, stone carving, ikat weaving or batik painting.
These crafts are not just for the tourists, they have formed the livelihoods of these Balinese villagers for several hundred years.
Guests can visit, watch and in many cases take classes – learning to cook local food, carve a wooden mask, dye a batik scarf, dance in a traditional performance, play an ancient brass musical instrument, or attend a life drawing session.

Bali, Indonesia
A trip to Bali can be filled with culture, nature, art, the spiritual or, even better, all of these. Apart from the wealth of Bali attractions, from the spectacular beaches of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Seminyak, or Ubud’s cultural heart and picturesque terraced rice fields, the northeastern coastal towns and Lombok Island are hidden gems awaiting discovery.
Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as cliffside Uluwatu Temple. To the south, the beachside city of Kuta has lively bars, while Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. The island is also known for its yoga and meditation retreats.
