PRIVATE VILLA MINUTES FROM UBUD: STAFF, ORGANIC GARDENS & POOL

Tampaksiring Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedroom Suites, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Your magical Balinese vacation begins immediately upon arrival at the Villa, where you will be greeted with fresh flowers and a welcome juice prepared by your personal cook. Stroll through the organic garden and view the traditional, active family temple and twenty-five daily offerings of fruit, flowers, and incense, or relax in the luxuriously appointed private villa. Go for a swim in your private pool. Your stay at the villa includes a delicious breakfast, prepared by a cook who is on call daily to cook lunches and dinners (additional fee).

There are 3 suites in the main house. The master suite has a king sized bed and private bath with a tub, shower and bidet. The Balinese Suite and Lotus Suite each have a king sized bed, and share an adjoining bath with a tub, shower and bidet. There is a queen sized convertible bed in the living room. For parties of 6 or more, our Temple Suite is available, with a queen sized bed, a kitchenette, and a bathroom with a shower.

The villa grounds are spacious, and private, with over half of the property devoted to productive, organic fruit and vegetable gardens. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, with a gazebo and beautifully lit pathways (perfect for wedding ceremonies).

Less touristy than the rest of Bali, our villa is nestled in a friendly village just 10 minutes outside of Central Ubud. Set in the foothills, with a landscape dominated by lush, green rice field terraces, temperatures in our neighborhood are generally 15 degrees cooler than the weather in Bali‘s coastal villages. There is no heating or air conditioning in the villa, because it is entirely unnecessary. The climate is perfectly comfortable year-round.

This is your chance to experience the REAL Bali, and get a glimpse into the life of a Balinese native. Each year our neighborhood temple has a celebration, and the procession passes right by the gazebo on our property. Our Balinese neighbors will be delighted to show you secret swimming holes, a waterfall, temple ruins, and local sites, that you would never find without a Balinese guide.

When you are ready to see the sights, your driver awaits, with recommendations for a diverse range of popular attractions as well as local secrets. Drive into Central Ubud on a scenic background—a beautiful 10 minute drive. Once in Ubud, you can enjoy lunch at Kafe or Bali Buddha, stroll through town, visit Monkey Forest, see rice fields being planted, or watch a Balinese weaver making cloth. Your driver will be waiting for you when you are ready to go back to the villa.

Water has special religious significance to Bali’s Hindus, and our villa is located near many of the sacred water sites, such as Lake Batur, Bali’s largest lake. 5577-foot Mount Batur, which is still an active volcano, is located in the caldera that contains Lake Batur. A key 10th-century temple, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, is dedicated to the goddess of the lake. The temple is built over one of the many hot springs said to possess curative powers. Visit the Elephant Sanctuary, and watch the elephants—and baby elephants—bathe in the pond. You’ll also have a chance to feed the elephants fruits and vegetables, which they’ll take right out of your hand. Also nearby is Goa Gajah, or Elephant Cave. The cave is carved into the cliff face, and is close to 1,000 years old. There are two square pools by the caves, with carvings of female figures spouting water.

From the natural beauty and spiritual energy of sacred temples, to healing spa and hot spring experiences or active mountain biking, hiking, and river adventures, there is something among Bali’s attractions for every visitor to fall in love with.

We are Michael & Ketut Taylor, an American / Balinese couple. We are passionate about organic farming and permaculture. We lived in this home for a few years with our young daughter, so it's truly a family home. Our Balinese neighbors will be delighted to show you a side of Bali you wouldn't experience without a local guide.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

We love this neighborhood because it is truly Balinese. It was important for Ketut to have a family temple, so we built a beautiful temple on the villa grounds. From our home you can walk to temple ruins and swimming holes. It's surrounded by rice fields, and the weather is perfect year round. It's close to Ubud, so it's easy to go into town for lunch or a yoga class.

The property is beautifully landscaped, with productive organic gardens, and a beautiful pool. Your stay at the villa includes a delicious breakfast, prepared by a cook who is on call daily to cook lunches and dinners (additional fee). Your driver in on-call from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with recommendations for a diverse range of popular attractions as well as local secrets.

This place is exactly as advertised, amazing. This place is beautiful but the staff sends it over the top, so gracious and conscientious. Getting around was easy with the driver always a little early and very skilled and all included in the price when going to Ubud. If you want to travel outside the area, the price was very reasonable. The pool, house and grounds were all the nicest we found in Bali for the price. This place leaves you with a tranquil and happy feeling. Iluh is a gem. We all wanted to take her home with us. We hated to leave!

The Best Holiday Experience EVER!

Villa Tirta Indah - what a destination. The pictures don't do it justice. The pool is awesome, the Villa extremely clean and well laid out and how cool to have your own Temple. But the Staff were the highlight of the trip. Iluh -the Manageress and Putu the cook/cleaner (can't remember the second lady's name) were the sweetest most generous foreigners I have ever met. They made us feel like part of the family and took us into their hearts as we did them. The food was beyond amazing. I particularly enjoyed the Coconut-Banana Pancakes I had for breakfast, and their local rice dishes were better than most restaurants could make. Nothing was too much trouble, nothing was a problem, they were discreet, respectful and an absolute delight to talk with.
Our driver Madi-arya (sp?) was so great, he went above and beyond to look after us and show us all the great places to go and was great also at helping us learn to the local language. We fell in love with pisang kecil (sp?) baby bananas deep fried that can be found in street side vendors - YUM. (and only bout $2 for a dozen)!!
The Villa itself is set right beside rice paddies in the country about 15 mins out of Ubud.
A short walk down the lane and you get the opportunity to see the locals tending their crops and going about their daily village life. Lots of photo spots!
We were out and about most days either around the local area, Ubud or further afield - we went to Kuta one day and after only 2 hours were glad to escape back to the tranquility of our home away from home.
The beds are massive and relatively comfortable, I'm a fussy bed person as have arthritis and like a soft bed - but I found it OK.
I can't wait to visit there again or the other beautiful looking Villa D'Abing they also run.
Thank you Iluh, Madi & Putu for making this a memorable holiday. :-)

It is true, you feel at peace at once in this very hygienic and beautiful villa with very spacious bedrooms and a beautiful garden and pool. The smallest details are thought of. We stayed here with our two sons of 8 and 11 years old and walked some trails through the ricefields next to the house, did a very nice mountainbike tour, visited Ubud several times and relaxed at the villa. Nothing was too much for the staff that was incredible attentive, had very good advices and and spoke very well English. We left our i-pad in the taxi that went to Sanur but the staff arranged all and we received the i-pad back within hours! Superb! We recommend it to all who prefer some authentic Bali with much activities nearby!

The best of Bali

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 22, 2013

It was our first time in Bali, a trip that for months seemed would be equally unpredictable and exciting. I had heard from previous visitors that the island was one of those last remaining magical havens on Earth; a true paradise where people adventured to escape the stresses of life in the concrete jungles of the world, but nonetheless a place where only a certain type of person could truly connect with the soul of the island.

I was anxious, sometimes nervous at the prospects of crossing many oceans to find myself lost in the insecurities of the foreign and unknown. Over 30 years of my life have been spent exploring distant corners of the world and yet, somehow the anticipation of arriving in Bali still seemed like a feat of its own. Then the day came, and from that moment on, life has never been the same.

Villa Tirta Indah was where it all started, and quite frankly, where a piece of my heart & soul will always reside. I wish I had the words to express the magnificence of this sacred haven on the outskirts of Ubud. The people, the place, the experience -- it's everything that's beautiful about life. From the moment we arrived and to this very day, I feel like I've finally felt what true peace can be, and for anybody out there wondering where his can be found, look no further. Villa Tirta Indah, the staff, the village, it's the kind of place that will change your life in the most beautiful of ways.

The villa is an easy drive (or scooter ride) from the heart of Ubud, taking you away from the tourism and chaos to a private, luxurious house right by the rice paddies (wow, so beautiful to walk by those rice fields!). The grounds are a Balinese paradise, with a gorgeous carved wooden entryway, a luxurious pool with comfy loungers, a traditional Balinese temple, a BIG organic garden (with a fountain and giant catfish in the pond!), and a peaceful little Indonesian-style gazebo for lounging. The inside of the house has more of a Western type of luxury feel to it - marble floors, big dining room table, three big bedrooms with king size, comfy beds, and air con. The staff are sweet and adorable, doing a nice job of taking care of you without feeling underfoot or in the way. The owners also pay attention to decadent little details, like organic, yummy-smelling soap and big, fluffy towels. I highly recommend it.
