FABULOUS NEW VILLA/EXCELLENT LOCATION/TRANQUIL/GORGEOUS POOL/BREAKFAST INCL.

Ubud Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms W/ Garden Showers/sleeps 4/ Penestanan #496235

Brand new in September, 2013, Villa Laba Puseh, is everything you could want in a holiday vacation home! The name, which means 'Land of Vishnu, The Preserver', is located on Temple Land in the quiet village of Penestanan, on the outskirts of Ubud, the cultural hub of Bali. This location is ideal, as you can enjoy both easy access to Ubud, (20 minute walk or $3 taxi ride) but return to your peaceful and quiet villa after your excursions.

Built with your enjoyment in mind, Laba Puseh was designed by blending the artistic talents that the Balinese are known for with the natural beauty of the outdoors. The villa is a visual feast for your eyes, as Balinese architectural details have been used throughout the entire property. These details include hand-carved wooden and stone window surrounds, gorgeous hand matted bamboo ceilings, and a coy pond you walk over to reach your front door. More than 1,000 man hours of stone-carved features are artfully placed throughout the property. At night the villa, garden and pool are beautifully lit for your continued pleasure.

The villa features two bedrooms with Balinese design four poster beds and furniture. Both bedrooms are fully air conditioned, but you may choose to enjoy the cooling natural breezes and overhead fans-the choice is yours. Each bedroom has its own bath, both showcasing beautiful, stone showers set in decorative, outdoor gardens.

In addition to being adorned with beautiful Balinese hand-carved furniture, the living room area also features a fully-equipped entertainment center for your enjoyment. Included for your entertainment pleasure are a flat screen TV with USB music port, Indovision cable TV providing international programming, a DVD player with an array of both children and adult DVD selections, and an IPOD dock. There is also a small library with books about various aspects of Balinese culture.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and appliances, should you wish to prepare some of your own snacks or meals. The dining room features a marbled topped table, although you may choose to sit at the bar, which is adorned with hand-carved, stone features. A full breakfast is served every morning and daily maid service is also provided.

The true artistic feature of the property is the swimming pool which features an amazing hand-carved sandstone surround. Water gently trickles down the wall underneath this feature and is complimented by water spouting from a replica of a temple fountain head. Next to the pool is an outdoor shower where you can rinse off. Hand woven sun beds and colorful towels complete your pool experience.

Bali is known as the Island of the Gods, so it is important to me to both respect and participate in the local spiritual customs. My family Temple and Kemara are located on the property and daily offerings are performed. On various ceremonial days beautiful baskets of hand made offerings and incense will be brought to the villa.

Centrally located in the village of Penestanan, Laba Puseh is set back from the main road and is surrounded by rice fields. It is a five minute walk to a variety of restaurants including organic eateries and juice bars, coffee bars and bakeries, and the wonderful local Balinese warungs of which Ibu Putu's is the most famous. For more upscale dining, Bridges Restaurant is just a few minutes away. There are also a plethora of restaurants to explore in Ubud.

Your vacation villa has access to many other activities which you may find enjoyable. Laba Puseh is directly adjacent to Eve Spa, a full treatment spa center, where you can enjoy a relaxing massage, body scrub, flower petal bath, or a selection of half or full day combination packages. A variety of yoga studios and meditation centers are just a short stroll from your front door. Both the Ubud Market and the well-known Monkey Forest Road can be easily accessed after a short taxi ride or a leisurely walk through town.

Your villa manager, Ketut Puja, is available for airport transportation and can also take you on a variety of trips including Temple and village tours. Most of the villages in the Ubud area specialize in their own handicrafts, and you can find anything from wood and stone carvings, to paintings to silver jewelry, just to name a few.

Bali offers a wide variety of activities to choose from, including scuba diving ship wrecks, elephant riding in the jungle, hiking through rice fields, or strolling through museums and art galleries. Be as active as you want or just relax by the beautiful pool and read a book....your Balinese adventure awaits you!

(NOTE: If you are already in Bali, contact the Villa Manager, Ketut Puja, at telephone# 08123925944 or 0361-976146 for direct booking. If interested, inquire about reduced rates without daily breakfast and only twice weekly maid service.)

I live on the island of Antigua in the Eastern Caribbean and have been involved in tourism my entire life. After visiting Bali in 2012, I fell in love with the lush and gorgeous scenery on the Island of the Gods, but even more so with the gracious people and their customs and spiritual traditions. With my first visit to Bali, I felt in my heart that I had 'come home' and had found my place in the world where I could experience peace, tranquility and spirituality.

Cheri Benjamin purchased this villa in 2013

I chose Penestanan because of its tranquility, friendly people and small town atmosphere. Even though Penestanan is actually a separate village to Ubud, the proximity of the two villages does not impede access to the Ubud Market or Monkey Forest Road. Both are easy to get to, and my favorite part of going into busy Ubud for shopping and dining is returning to peaceful Penestanan and the quietness of my villa.

My villa is directly adjacent to Eve Spa, which is a favorite of mine for massages and other spa services. There are many great places to eat within a few minutes' walk of the front door, plus many of these restaurants will also deliver. Yoga and meditation classes at Intuitive Flow yoga studio are only a five minute walk from the villa.

My dear Balinese friend, Ketut Puja, spent the last year building Villa Laba Puseh for me in the quiet village of Penestanan on Temple Land. I love Balinese architecture and artistry, and Ketut made sure that it was incorporated into every aspect of this villa. Everywhere you look, you see some building aspect that was designed and built artistically including hand carved wooden window surrounds and kitchen cabinet doors, or intricate, artistic air flows built into the walls.

Four different types of beautiful building stones were used in the construction process of my home. Three types of stone are from Bali, while the other was imported from Java. More than 1,000 man hours went into creating the stone-carved details that surround my villa. My favorite feature is more than four feet high and three feet wide. I can just stand and look at the stone work in amazement, marveling at the intricate hand-carved details designed by the skilled artisans who helped build my home. Everywhere you turn in Labah Puseh you see beauty.

Another fabulous feature of the villa is the pool, which features a beautiful, hand-carved sandstone surround, water gently cascading down a wall beneath it and water spouting from a replica of a temple fountain head.

Ketut, my friend and architect extraordinaire, also manages the villa for me. He is available for any type of day trip you could imagine or can take you on a chartered fishing trip!

A LOVELY AND QUIET PLACE IN THE AMAZING UBUD

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 nights at villa Laba Puseh with our 2 daughters and our baby boy and we couldn't expect a better place for our family vacations in Bali.
The villa is charming, in a Balinese style, simple and fully furnished.
The villa manager and his wife were very welcoming and helpful, breakfasts delicious.
The villa is located in a very quiet place (precious in Ubud!). With our kids, we very easily found taxi to go in 5 minutes in the town center.
The spa located next door is also a good address!!!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We spent 11 days at this beautiful villa . It made our stay in Ubud comfortable and stress free . Ketut and Made were extremely helpful ,pleasant and willing to share their culture with us . We were fortunate enough to spend Nyepi or Silent day in the villa -much better experience than at a hotel.
The villa was well equipped ,immaculately clean , beds comfy , quiet neighbourhood , good location from Ubud and grocery store and restaurants and central to exploring the northern regions. Ketut is a great driver, knowledgeable and offers reasonably priced fees for tours.
Everything is exactly as described/pictured in the advertisement. The owner, Cherie is pleasant, prompt in replying and answering any questions. Her love of Bali is evident and she is eager to share the magic of this beautiful country !
No complaints other than I will have to book far in advance if I want to return .

Owner's Response: Kathy I am so glad Jane and you had such a wonderful time! As you have experienced, I am so blessed to have Ketut and Made taking care of my guests as they not only do a wonderful job taking care of the villa, along with providing transportation transfers and tours, but they are willing to share their culture and customs--I am sure that the Temple Ceremonies that you attended with them are something you will always remember fondly about your trip. I am so happy that you enjoyed the villa and your entire stay on The Island Of The Gods. I look forward to your return!

FANTASTIC HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in villa, Laba Puseh. The design was perfect for two couples. Ketut did a great job...so much detail and we enjoyed the beautiful and quiet setting. We loved the open plan and showers. We did not need the a/c. I only wished that above the bed the mosquito netting allowed more air to come through from the ceiling fan (small point).

Made was a fantastic hostess, making us Indonesian breakfast each morning and bringing fresh fruits. The house was kept spotlessly clean.
It was interesting to watch her make the offering to the shrine each morning too.

Unfortunately, we did not meet Ketut, but when I called him on several occasions when Internet router needed to be reset, he responded quickly and the problem resolved.

There were many great places to eat nearby too. Our favorites were Alchemy and Warung Mendez.

The Bali Spirit Festival was great event and we hope to come back to this beautiful home to attend next year.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful stay at this villa in Ubud. My favorite personal touch were the fresh flowers in every room. My daughter loved the pool the most. It's a plunge pool, but it was exciting enough to keep my 12 year old daughter in it for 2 hours one day. The rooms are lovely and beautifully decorated with Balinese style wood furniture. Bathrooms are nice with outdoor showers surrounded in tropical vegetation. TV and wifi worked with no issues.
I was worried about the location when I booked the villa, because I didn't have a sense of where it was in relation to downtown Ubud and whether or not there would be businesses close by. It turned out that it was perfect for us. It's about a 15 minute walk into the downtown area. We walked there every day. Starbucks is a 20-30 minute walk. The villa is actually in Penestanan but has plenty of shops and restaurants. We ate at several different restaurants that were all very inexpensive and had great traditional Indonesian food. There is also a very popular vegetarian restaurant called Alchemy and a fun bar with western food called the Round Bar. Eve Spa is top notch and it's right outside the villa. Made cooked our breakfast. If you don't like Asian breakfasts or have a picky eater, most of the restaurants close by cook a western style breakfast.
We hated to leave and can't wait to return. Rest assured that this villa is an excellent value in Bali.

Owner's Response: Valerie, I am so glad you and your daughter had a great time at my home! I agree totally about the location being perfect-close to Ubud for excursions, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be able to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the villa when you return. I am glad you enjoyed the many great dining options in Penestanan and having access to Eve Spa right outside of your main villa gates is a great addition to any vacation. Thank you for the kind words and I look forward to your return sometime soon!
