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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Return to paradise.”

5 of 5 stars for a stay in June 2014

Our second time at Villa Vajra (within 12 months!) was just as spectacular as our first. We were welcomed back by the gorgeous villa staff and owners as though old friends and we enjoyed every second of our 5 night stay. Having undertaken a few side trips and cultural excursions on our last trip, we were content to stay put at the villa for much of our time. However, we did do a few trips into Ubud with the ever-obliging villa manager, Gusti and our girls spent a lot of time with Narie, Gusti's wife and their beloved babysitter. In fact, their reunion with Narie was pretty much the highlight of their trip! She kept them beautifully occupied with fun games, swimming, craft, exploration and massages.

As always, the food prepared by Made and Ketut was spectacular. We re-requested one of our previous favourites, jackfruit curry, and were delighted to see Widi (one of the lovely house staff) hacking down a jackfruit from one of the trees in the garden - doesn't get fresher or more local than that.

Joel and Nirgrantha are the very best hosts and gave us a fabulous recommendation for a new restaurant in Ubud, Locavore, which we loved. They also arranged for us to get some wonderful biodynamic Balinese coffee from ethical growers in Kintamani. The perfect take-home souvenir.

The villas surrounds are as spectacular as ever and it was great to see the beautiful new ironwood path across the rice paddies, soon-to-be vine-laden pergola and beginnings of the organic garden. Nirgrantha's particular passion for the gardens is infectious and impressive.

Meditating in the wooden bale in the garden at dawn as the sun rises through the palm trees on the ridge beyond, the tok tok of the temple drum calls people to prayer and the jungle slowly comes to life rates as one of the most atmospheric, uplifting and memorable experiences I've ever had.

Gracious hosts and staff in a spectacular villa in a lovely little village in the hills. This is Bali at its best.

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.
