Ubud House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms. Sleeps up to 8


The villa was designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Guy Morgan. It is a dramatic expression of openness to the surrounding natural setting and its spaciousness offers you luxurious accommodation in its three bedrooms. This exclusive property is surrounded by landscaped gardens which fit naturally into the slopes of a river valley gorge. After a breathtaking passage through arched majestic bamboo, you approach the villa on a raised wooden walkway through undisturbed rice fields, giving no clue to the remarkable design of the villa ahead and its electrifying views.

To preserve the integrity of this magnificent island Vajra Villas makes every effort to help our environment, from an organic waste water garden to the use of organic natural foods whenever possible. Energy saving policies will be discussed with the guests on arrival. And to celebrate Ubud’s central place in Balinese culture and the arts, Vajra Villas features a growing, collection of work by local artists.

All bedrooms feature individually controlled air-conditioning units as well as ceiling fans to keep the rooms pleasantly cool. There are telephone lines for IDD and in-house calls in each room, as well as individual safety deposit boxes.


The floor of the elegantly furnished master bedroom is made of polished local merbau wood. On three sides are expansive glass sliding doors offering awesome views of the jungle, river valley and swimming pool with its statue-niched water wall. One door opens to the timbered balcony with its built-in padded bench seat providing both a viewing spot and listening post for the adjacent waterfall or distant Wos River which coils its way through the deep gorge below.

The en-suite garden bathroom features a large black terrazzo Jacuzzi bathtub which stands in strong contrast to the white Palimanan stone floor. A black terrazzo washstand supports a stylish steel washbowl, and the shower which opens directly to the garden is flanked by shelves and cabinets.


Valley Bedroom

The Valley Room is situated at pool level. It is furnished with a dreamy four-poster bed complemented by striking artwork. Sliding glass doors face the valley. The suite has its own dressing room and a garden bathroom constructed of black terrazzo.

Sawah Room

Situated on the western side of the villa, this room boasts a three sided panoramic view of the rice fields. It also has an en-suite toilet and shower room with marble floor.


Across the lotus pond stands the Study. It serves both as a media room with TV, DVD player and film library and quality sound system which has speakers throughout the villa and gardens. This room also doubles as an additional bedroom with an en-suite shower/bathroom on its private viewing terrace. An expansive cathedral window in front of the built-in desk offers a surprisingly dramatic view of the living and dining areas below.

Living and Dining Pavilion

Accessed by an external cantilevered staircase from the pond level is the gargantuan Living-Dining pavilion. It is only on reaching this lower level that the unique architectural design of the villa can be appreciated. It stands three stories high beneath a vaulted, intricately designed thatched roof supported by coconut wood pillars on stone plinths.

Furnished with comfortable teak chairs and sofas, pendulous lanterns illuminate a large mahogany dining table. It is also a fantastic venue for parties, receptions and functions as well as quiet, peaceful living. The adjoining semi-circular timber deck overhangs the lush river valley; living jackfruit trees grow through holes cut in the deck floor, a stylish sensitive way to preserve the original forest plantings, an architectural tour de force blending style with nature.


Vajra is committed to the use of organic food products whenever possible. Two extremely talented in-house cooks are shared between the Villas. They specialize in an array of tempting Balinese and other Southeast Asian delicacies as well as traditional Western cuisines.Special dietary requirements and requests for dishes not on the menu will be honored.

A price list of alcoholic beverages is available. If you prefer your own wines a corkage fee of Rp 50,000 per bottle will be charged. During your stay the staff will do the shopping and meal preparation based on your requests, which should be ordered one day in advance. The ingredients for all meals will be purchased locally and receipts will be kept for your reference. Food and beverage items are charged based on grocery cost system. Guests will need to provide some money in advance and the staff will do the shopping for you and keep the receipts for your reference.

Vajra Villas is surrounded by a thrilling panorama of rice fields and distant mountain views. It is set in an archetypal Balinese village where the day-to-day spiritual/cultural life unfolds. Life in rural Bali remains essentially unchanged. The Balinese practice a unique form of Hinduism with an aesthetic sensibility that flavors every moment: rituals and ceremonies revolve around the traditional family compounds and local village temples. Cultural performances are everywhere. Bali is renowned for its dance forms as well as its unique musical idiom. Almost every town has its own gamelan orchestra. Wherever you are the hypnotic rhythms of this staccato metallic and bamboo music is rarely out of earshot.

Vajra Villas is a thrilling ten minute drive or majestic 45 minute walk to Ubud, which is the center of Bali’s famed cultural life and a shopper’s paradise. It offers a wide selection for art lovers. Museums and innumerable art galleries display traditional as well as contemporary work. Each village practices its own art form handed down from generation to generation: painting, stone sculpture, wood carving, weaving, furniture making and silver design. Bali’s fabric designs and clothing are valued worldwide. Cultural performances often centering on the Hindu epic ‘The Ramayana’, are frequently staged in the area. The Kecak, Monkey, Legong, Barong and Fire Dances are recognized worldwide.

Ubud is also is a perfect hub from which to visit every corner of Bali. From volcano to sea there are a wide variety of beach and tourist activities and sports. Not only does nature provide its spectacular array but internationally acclaimed entertainment and cuisine have come to the island. Our experienced English speaking drivers who know the local history can guide you to them. For those who seek excitement in nature, there is a wide range of activities to choose from. The countryside around Sebali is particularly beautiful; an abundance of trails offer memorable walks through peaceful rice fields. It is a bird watchers dream.

Villa Vajra was the most perfect vacation home.
The setting is breathtaking and the staff exceptional from the moment we arrived until we departed 5 days later.
We felt like we had become part of the family.
The villa has beautiful amenities and it is better than the pictures on the website.
The furnishings are lovely and the food terrific.
I would give it a 10+++

As a family of 6, with 3 generations from Mexico & UK, we stayed in Varja for 3 days from the 4th-7th February 2014.
Having seen photos on the internet we knew we had chosen an extremely beautiful place, however on arrival we were simply spellbound by everything, and were continually amazed with the everything Varja contained: The actual home & amenities, all the staff (such professional, helpful, angels who were never intrusive and always available to provide for us); the impecably clean rooms; a resourceful study, with a magical view of the gardens from the desk (should we have chosen to work or use it to its potential); the outdoor bathrooms a real, fresh taste of the Tropics; the gardens so inviting and so lush, with fantastic walks easily followed by all ages and interests; the meditation patio simply perfect (all of us - from the 60+ to the 6 year old all were inspired to meditate)!
The food was 5 star standard with generous portions and extremely fair prices. We chose to eat moreso at the house for we were so impressed with the range of menu, the magical settings of the tables (the napkins being origamied into different shapes each meal were such a lovely touch, which the children were very impressed with)!
The pool and jacuzzis (one in the master bedroom) were fabulous - the onlooking Buddahs around the living area were a classy, spritual touch. Transport was readily avaiable and activities in Ubud were well advised; communication bewteen us, staff & businesses was perfect, all requests (including dietry requests) were met.
It was ideal to be away from the hubbub of Ubud - minutes away yet tucked superbly away from any noise. Coming home after a busy day out was heaven- melting into paradise each moment at the house.
There is no "best" or "worst", as our whole experience was simply magical - thankyou to all who made our stay one of the most memorable and serene holiday we have ever experienced!

There are myriad factors that contribute to making a wonderful holiday experience: great location, good amenities, delicious food and attentive service. The very best spots combine all those things and then deliver extra. And that’s exactly what Villa Vajra does.

It starts the moment you arrive with the short walk to the villa through verdant rice stalks with a beautiful village temple on the edge of the field. It's an extraordinarily peaceful and picturesque start.

The villa itself is spacious and relaxed, the pool is fabulous and the main outdoor living space is incredible with its soaring, traditionally-thatched roof. However, it's the surrounding natural environment that makes this place so special.

The tropical garden that surrounds the villa is indescribably beautiful. Full of hidden corners and the sound of the rushing river below as you descend on stone steps. The wooden meditation bale, perched just below the main deck and overlooking the garden and the opposite ridge is, without doubt, the most perfect place I have ever watched the sun rise. The whole place is arrestingly beautiful.

Our party of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids) were looked after so very well. The staff at Villa Vajra are an absolute delight. Attentive, ever-present when needed and warm but never obtrusive - a very fine line to walk and they do it exceptionally well.

Gusti, the manager, is a gem. He arranged everything for us from trips to Ubud for browsing shops to a crack-of-dawn visit to the locals' food market, an in-house gamelan performance one night and Balinese dancers the next. When credit cards were lost or kids got sick, he handled it all with care and grace.

In an added bonus, Gusti's wife, Narie, is the best babysitter and just a gorgeous person. Our kids adored her - even our normally reticent and shy 4-year-old was besotted with her from the very beginning. She took the kids on adventures through the garden, did crafts using beautiful flowers they collected and produced an endless stream of activities for them.

Ketut and Made, the chefs, cook the best food in the Ubud area. Full stop. If you're a foodie, I highly recommend leaving the menu completely in their hands. We did that after our first few nights and we had the most wonderful feasts of local specialities - truly some of the best food I've had in 20 years of travelling (and occasionally working) in Indonesia.

Widi and the other staff around the villa make every day a pleasure with their friendly presence.

The service received went beyond all expectations - thank you so much to Gusti and Saba, for whom nothing was too much trouble and always received with genuine smiles ...friends rather than staff. The villa is breathtaking. Rice fields to the front, jungle to the rear separated by beautiful luxury accommodation and grounds. The villa is breathtaking...each bedroom feels different and the open air living room is so relaxing...yet strangely intimate too. Located some way from town meant peace and quiet, travel in and out of town easily organised by Gusti. I loved my stay only regret is that i couldn't stay longer!

We have rented villas and stayed in many of the best resorts in Bali and throughout SE asia on many occasions over the past 15 years. Villa Vajra is one of the very best. It ought to be included in the Luxe Guide to Bali if it isn't in the current edition. The location, quality of the villa its surrounds, the food and especially the attentiveness of the staff are simply top notch. We are already recommending to our friends that they try to arrange to spend some time at Villa Vajra and we will definitely be back.

VILLA VAJRA is located in the village of Sebali which is only a ten minute drive from the cultural hub of Ubud. Villa Vajra is perched dramatically on the edge of a deep river gorge nestled into the natural contours of the hill providing a lush and private setting. This romantic hideaway is a classic of contemporary Balinese architecture with thatched roofs while open to the drama of its surrounding landscapes. Meandering paths lead to an enchanting 'tea house' in the stunning gardens below the Villa. The villa offers a variety of services in-house, also provides a perfect location from which to sample the various cultural delights and local activities of the area, dance and music performances in nearby Ubud and a host of interesting restaurant options.

Constructed with highest quality local materials (‘alang alang’ thatch, marble and Palimanan stone, teak wood, and so forth) the property combines the very best of Balinese architectural elements with contemporary flair, elegant finishes and modern amenities. The villa offers both the epitome of outdoor living and indoor air-conditioned comfort.

Between the two buildings on the upper level are a lotus pond and pergola. A serene Buddha statue dominates the lotus pond while white thunbergia flowers cascade over the covered walkway leading to the Master Bedroom.

We are close to some wonderful river rafting and bicycle excursions. Golf is available in Sanur, about a half hour away.

A local painter offers 'trekking' tours through the glorious rice fields

nearby and of course massages can easily be arranged in the comfort of the villa. We also have a yoga/meditation pavilion overlooking the gardens below the villa. A yoga instructor can be hired for personal instruction.
