Brand new Villa Solera is a stylish three bedroom luxury villa located in the rice fields along Ubud's famous Juwuk Manis rice field walk. Fine Balinese art and antiques are stunningly combined with 5 star Western amenities to create the perfect environment for your Bali experience. Villa Solera feels instantly like you are coming home!
In the bedroom wing, the upstairs Master suite with sitting area has a large veranda with expansive views of the rice fields and our sparkling pool. The Master bedroom has a new King size pillowtop mattress, soft pillows, and luxurious linens. Mosquito netting, safety box and air conditioning are also there for your comfort. Your Master bathroom has cream terazzo, double sinks, granite counters and walk in shower with Rainshower fixtures.
Downstairs, two bedrooms (one with Queen bed and one with two Twins) are located next to the pool and have gorgeous views of the pool and rice fields. Each has its own outdoor Bali bathroom, full of plants, with open plan and separate toilet as well as Rainshower fixtures, carved cabinets, terazzo, and lots of hot water.
We have designed our villas to take full advantage of outdoor living and the views, and sliding doors that open up all the way bring the outdoors in. Spacious covered verandas add lots of outdoor space, with the ability to close, lock and air condition for your comfort.
There are two separate, spacious living areas, one on each floor, and each with air conditioning. You are always surrounded by an interesting collection of Balinese art and one-of-a-kind antiques. The lounge upstairs off the kitchen has two comfortable sofas and reading chairs with ottoman, perfect for a book or relaxing. This living area opens up onto a large covered veranda with dining table and sofas to take in the view.
The villa’s kitchen has custom cabinets from old Javanese teak, slab granite counters, stainless appliances and is fully equipped with everything you need and a lot you don't. On hand to cook for you is our lovely staff (there will be several), who will pamper you and tempt your palate with delicious Western or Balinese breakfast. You may have your choice of eggs any style, fruit, pancakes, fruit smoothie, juice, and coffee or tea. Our sweet staff will also be happy to make lunch or dinner, menu agreed to beforehand--you pay in advance for groceries, they will go to the market or store, and give you the change and your receipt. Staff arrives at 6:30-7:00 and leaves around 3, so she/they will leave the cooked food in the fridge and you can serve at your leisure.
Solera's pool level living room features comfy sofas and a large veranda by the pool. A custom made bookcase contains art and a 45' flat Plasma screen TV with satellite channels galore. There are also many books to read, videos to choose from, and a DVD/CD player with good volume speakers. Wifi is currently available throughout the villa, and we are already wired for lightning fast fibre optic cable that should be installed any time (as of May 1). Between Wifi internet connection, 101 cable TV channels and the DVD player, you will never be lacking for media-unless you decide to unplug and recharge your inner batteries with Bali time! There are brochures on places to go, lots of menus, and a binder with insider suggestions for your trip. You will also find a half bath, and office area with a desk and lots of cabinets on this level.
All of the villa's furniture is custom designed and handmade in Bali, and the lighting is good for reading in your two big chairs with ottomans. There are sunbeds all around and a large umbrella for shade. Mature landscaping, orchids and flowering plants are everywhere, blending perfectly with the lush green of the rice fields.
The villa also comes equipped with many thoughtful touches like shampoo, insect repellant, pool floaties, umbrellas, ponchos, flashlights, and magnifying makeup mirrors. You may also use our Bali cell phone for local calls during your stay, and it is pre-programmed with essential staff numbers in case you would like to be picked up in town on our motorbike shuttle.
On site is a full time discreet staff of Ketut, the Villa Manager-do everything person, and Desak, housekeeper/chef, both of whom speak English. You may choose either to sample the close by superb restaurants, have food delivered, cook for yourself,(breakfast is included each day), or allow our Housekeeper to spoil you with fresh local dishes. Food purchase is done at cost, and going to the local market early in the morning is a special experience. Linens and towels are changed on a regular basis, and your personal laundry can be dropped off/picked up for a nominal fee. A 5 passenger a/c car is available with English speaking driver/guide for a nominal fee per day, as is pick up at the Denpasar airport, a 60-90 minute drive from the villa (depending on traffic). There is a 3 minute walk up a sloping hill, then another 3 minute walk to the villa, so not recommended for wheelchairs or people with mobility issues. Villa Solera has the perfect location and amenities to make your stay in Ubud unforgettable!
