PURI NAGA TOYA
As the translated name suggests, the influence of feng shui shows in the villa's orientation. It is built on the ‘dragon's back', with hills behind the house and water in front – denoting the flow of health, well-being and prosperity for its residents. Its architecture overlays traditional Bali structures with a strong Chinoiserie theme. The interior design reveals the owners' passion for Asia and appreciation of Asian heritage, culture and art.
BALI'S BEST KEPT SECRET- THE CROWD
Puri Naga Toya is a well-composed work of art - and is centered on a half acre estate with beautiful views of the Batukaru Mountains ; surrounded by the traditional baroque gardens with all the 'accoutrements' of aristocratic life. For a real break, this is so much better than a hotel.
Its three pavilions are planned around natural geographical features and situated in a “tropical cloud forest” only found in these altitudes.
For those city dweller's, a few hours alone in such a serene environment, releases a week's worth of stress. Take time and swim in the refreshing spring-fed pool.
FENG SHUI PRINCIPLES
This luxury Ubud villa was built with inspiration from Tze. Strong emphasis was placed on the design complying with important feng shui principles. Feng shui is the ancient Chinese system of design that takes into account the four elemental energies and the relationship to a home in order to create harmony, wealth and tranquility.
In this Ubud villa you can see that all of these basic principles have been observed. Every day is paradise in fresh mountain air. You will enjoy spring water to drink, bath and swim in.
Functionality was not forgotten amid this heady artistic creation. According to the Chinese principles, water represents well being, so to have water slowly meandering through your Chinois gardens is symbolically akin to health and prosperity flowing into your holiday.
Puri Naga Toya has also been featured in Barbara Walker's book, 'Gathering Places: Balinese Architecture - A Spiritual and Spatial Orientation', and several magazines throughout Asia, Japan and the Unites States .

This is a 'sacred space', featured in many publications magazines and coffee table books due its uplifting atmosphere.
The owners go to their property to be soothed and healed, and to have their senses put in order.
This exclusive residence is a masterclass in stylish understatement with chilled-out charm. This is a mellow hangout offering beautiful, pristine mountain views and the famous Ayung river and waterfall down below; situated in a tropical river valley.
Luxury today in the sense of travel is about an experience you are providing. That experience is a collection of key attributes, like service, people, physical room, location, and food. All these things must come together in the right way to provide truly unique luxury experiences.
Seeing life as it was a hundred years before in a village , exploring our living museums and enjoying our private collections as their very own exceeds expectations.

In Asia-Pacific Tropical Homes Magazine, Joni wrote this about Villa Puri Naga Toya
“Whimsical as it might at first appear, the two storey octagonal design lends itself perfectly to the site.” “The first floor enjoys a range of different orientations, with a pivotal opposition between a landscaped garden courtyard on one side and the sweeping vista of volcanic hills and virgin rainforest on the other.”
Stay at Puri Naga Toya and you'll feel like Balinese royalty. The staff at Puri Naga Toya are very well trained and will help you to arrange all of your holiday schedules.
The interior is a world away from hotel-style luxury, with a private collection of antiques, excellent book collection in the Library that 'stay at home'; blended with modern amenities and attention to detail. Its owners have more than two decades experience in five-star luxury hotel management. This is a sanctuary to enjoy your family and friends.
-Watch the beauty and transformation of the mountains; go for a walk in village and see offerings being laid out, men sitting outside their family compounds patting their prized roosters and Balinese children playing in the streets. Or, stay at home and enjoy the plentiful comfortable places both inside and outside to relax.
The unique and individual bedrooms feature comfortable beds with European inner spring mattresses, pillows and goose down duvets. The Master bedroom has its own en suite. For guests who enjoy cooking Puri Naga Toya has a well-equipped kitchen.
This 'hill country' residence is private, and you can experience authentic Balinese village life, yet it is only 15 min drive from the restaurants, shopping and services of Hanging Garden Ubud.
This is a private and secure property. One of the highlights of Puri Naga Toya is its location. With superb mountain and river, views it is situated in a small Balinese village.
Hello, hello, hello!! In a nutshell, our stay was ... wow. Simply the best, warmest, most physically beautiful stay we've ever had anywhere. Henry said it was like living in an art museum. He goes on and on about Puri Naga Toya to people, and he's not easy to impress. :)
Your staff, as you know, are incredible. They made our visit to Puri Naga Toya so happy and pleasant. In particular, they elevated the day of our vow renewal ceremony from special to magical. We ALL seemed to enjoy the ceremony and the day; they seemed almost as excited as Henry and I were! I took some home video, and you can hear everyone laughing and talking and just having a great time as we were setting up and I was practicing walking across the grounds with the gigantic fruit bowl on my head without dumping it into the pond. :) I was extremely touched that the entire staff, even Agung the night security guard, attended our ceremony in traditional temple dress. They are all just wonderful people.
Our stay at Purinagatoya is beyond words. When we arrived it was quite late. We were greeted by a wonderful dinner and an entire group of smiling faces. The following days were no less wonderful. The property is absolutely fantastic. In my opinion the photos on the web listing do not do it justice. The grounds are very well kept and the layout is something from the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The property is very spacious and provided enough diversity for the three children to embark on adventure after adventure. Every piece of furniture and all the accompanying décor are each unique in their own way and have been placed with a great deal of love.
I really cannot say enough about the hospitality and friendless of the staff. They assisted us with everything from booking transportation, to cooking, to booking entertainment venues and restaurants; and did so with professionalism and great care. They really were invaluable in making our stay a fantastic one.
A true gem is the restaurant just next door. Good food in a good setting.
I would and will recommend this property to any and all that want to go to Bali for a few days of R and R!!!
Thank you so much for making us feel at home while we were away from home.
We were two families of four with kids from 8 to 16 yrs. We enjoyed the stay at Puri Naga Toya very much! The place remains amazing, clean and comfortable, staff were efficient and helpful, their surprise dinner full of delicious local flavor conquered us and we promised ourselves that next time, we will ask the surprise diner every evening ^.^
The daily shuttle to Ubud city was very convenient, the driver speaks good English, he was also very helpful, always on time and nice.
All in all, kids had super fun time inside and outside of the villa: swimming pool, garden exploring, dogs walking and playing, fish feeding, neighborhood visiting, shopping, Bali Marina and Safari with waterpark, quad driving in the rain forest, elephant riding, Bali chocolate, coffee and tea plantation visiting... They tested different Bali coffee (Moca is yummy and black Bali coffee yakee), black and milk chocolate ( no comment cos they were too busy eating), snake fruit, local spicy noodles ( they loved despite the spices )... played numerous games in the garden... Mums did loads of shopping, daddies had great relaxing time: power walk in the wild nature, local beer and spa in the villa...
After 10 days, kids asked for more but the villa was already booked by another group...
We had stayed here in this villa for our honeymoon.
This was the first time I had booked a villa through VRBO and I was very skeptical initially as to how this stay would turn out. Contrary to my fears, the villa, the views and the service all turned out to be excellent. This is really a hidden gem.
This villa has the best view in the area. Its set up in a quiet village with rice fields on one side and the tropical forest on the other side. We checked out the views in four seasons and bali viceroy. This one beats them all.
We went on a honeymoon and we were two of us in the whole villa. We loved the seclusion away from all the touristy stuffs. Also this villa can house 8 people atleast if not more. It will be great for a family get together as well.
Special note of appreciation to Wayan and Made for the excellent service. We loved the breakfast here. We were vegetarians and found good veggie entrees for dinner. Cooks also customize the entrees for your needs.
Weather is quite pleasant here as this villa is perched on a cliff. Also, there are no mosquitoes here due to the altitude.
The master bedroom windows overlooking the valley/forest shall have curtains for added privacy.
We had the most wonderful time in this Villa! The Villa is even better than pictured,(If that's possible!) more comfortable than one can imagine and is equipped with the sweetest staff you would want to spend time with. The airport transfer and daily shuttle to Ubud made it easy to enjoy both this lovely mountainside Villa and the shops, shows and restaurants in Ubud. The included breakfasts were delicious and the never ending coffee and tea were enjoyed everyday. We had a cooking class, massages and wonderful conversations with the lovely staff that we wanted to bring home with us. We consider all of the staff as friends and we will return!
This was the first time back to my birth country of Indonesia in over 40 years and as a retired travel agent, it was crucial to me that the accommodations were perfect. I needed to immerse my husband and two adult children in all the wonderful culture and people that is Bali and SE Asia. This Conde Nast suited Villa fulfilled that goal perfectly. The included daily shuttle to Ubud with driver and tour guide, Made Darmawan, was a delight and we consider him a family friend as we do the entire Villa staff. It was wonderful to have the option of the daily shuttle to Ubud (bring an extra suitcase for your purchased treasures...the prices are stunningly low when you bargain!) or to stay at the Villa and relax by the pool with fresh mango smoothies. Each bedroom was sparkling clean as were the bathrooms, common areas, grounds, koi pond, pool and kitchen. Each and every meal consumed at the Villa was restaurant worthy and exceptional. A cooking class, massages and a full day driving tour (extra cost but so, so very reasonable) rounded out the perfect vacation! Thank you Pamela and Royale for filling your Villa with treasures for all to admire and appreciate. And yes, I'm referring to your entire staff. Please hug them for me!
Have opholdt sig på denne villa er en enestående oplevelse for mig og min kone. Det var vores jubilæum og vi opholdt sig i over en uge. Vi havde tid til at slappe af og nyde selskab med hinanden. Det var en cool industriens ledere sted at slappe af og slappe af. Vi turnerede rundt i området og planlægger at vende tilbage med børnene.
