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.

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.

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.

From the welcome at the gates, the entrance feeling like hanging gardens of Eden, walk over the lovely rice field and then entering to the villa which was a design perfection was just anything one could have ever hoped for. We entered into a pond with lovely pools filled with beautiful fish, floating steps took us to lovely designed rooms, bedroom, relax area and then down the steps to the main dining/living/pool area which was just amazing. View over jungle scenery falling down to the river. The open dining/living room just exquisite. All the bedrooms and bathrooms from out of a book of Bali magic. We've been to Bali before and also then to Ubud, and this was the place in Ubud that we had hoped had everything we would have wished for in the beautiful Ubud scenery, and if for sure fulfilled all of our wishes. We had massage in the lovely massage parlor a few steps further down from the main dining/terrace area and all the way down to the river was like a garden of eden, and you could so enjoy your relaxing moment. Our son of 20 months loved spending time in the children's pool and we for sure loved spending time in the Buddah/waterfall grownup pool. And then we come to the personnel. Lovely, welcoming, warm, great with anything we wished for to be made in the kitchen. Arts and crafts was only a walk away if you wanted to indulge in that, which we did. What a beautiful place, what a lovely experience. We highly recommend it!!!

"The Best of Balinese Villa living!"

"The Best of Balinese Villa living!"
  • Submitted: Jul 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2011
This was our second stay at Villa Vajra.It was like returning to a very special home. Having had over 20 trips to Bali and having stayed at many of the best properties, we would rate Villa Vajra as providing us with the best Balinese luxury villa experience.
The villa is set in the local village of Sebali which gave us a view of real Balinese life. On our morning strolls we were always made to feel welcome by our Balinese "neighbors" with warm smiles and friendly greetings. It is also possible to walk to Ubud from Vajra, past small temples, art shops and the occasional "warung" where we would stop for a cold drink to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. The road continues to the ancient bukit trail to Ubud which opens up sensational and dramatic views of the river valleys.
Villa Vajra is approached by a walk way right across beautiful rice sawas. As you enter the Villa itself, you are greeted by a standing Buddha in a stunning lotus flower pond, with a "floating walkway" to the Master Suite. We were continuously taken aback by the beauty of the setting. The Villa sits a top the Wos river gorge, and provides breath taking views of the verdant green jungle and the botanical gardens below.
The main dining/living area is open with a soaring roof of ulang - ulang grass, a Bose sound system, and is comfortably furnished. Refreshing cool breezes wash through this area and the pool is there for quick dip. There is a large deck we used for Yoga in the mornings again with a tranquil view of the river valley.
We were always surprised by the diversity and quality of the cuisine prepared with pride daily by the two on-site Chefs. We enjoyed the best of Balinese cuisine as well as amazing dishes from asia and Europe.
The staff are sensational, friendly, helpful and respectful of your needs and privacy. Villa Manager Gusti is exceptional. We have already booked for next year, and can't wait to return to our Balinese home away from home.

"Dream location in the middle of the padi fields"

"Dream location in the middle of the padi fields"
  • Submitted: Jul 1, 2012

A very secluded retreat as if in Paradise between the river valley and the padi fields. Stunning villa with very attentive staff, great cook. The rooms were very comfortable and it was hard to leave.

Only small grouse was the fact that the pool was not heated and we did find it cold. This being said, we use the pool a lot during our stay, so that should not stop you.

We are planning to go back for birthdays and anniversary celebrations and would have no qualm recommending this villa to anyone who intend to stay in Ubud.

"Villa Vajra: Perfect in Every Way"
  • Submitted: Jul 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2011
Everything was perfect:
the luxurious villa - its architecture, furnishings, and art works;
the environment - a tropical jungle on one side with magnificent trees and flowers and peaceful rice fields on the other, a small village and village temple only a few steps away;
two chefs, exciting meals on demand and ready service;
a large staff, always gracious, helpful and capable;
The villa offers a peaceful retreat but is within easy reach of the town of Ubud with its temples, arts, shopping, and varied restaurants.

This was our first trip to Bali and after a few active days on the beach we loved to walk over the rice fields to "our tranquil oasis", the kids were in the pool all day and we mediated in the pavilion looking over the lush green of the forest. I was a bit worried to have "staff" because we wanted to be alone, but we never felt like they were there and yet they were always there when we needed them. Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short, but we will be back!

We expected Bali to dazzle our senses and Villa Vajra was extraordinary.
We arrived at the main entrance of the property to see a stunning Balinese home situated among lush rice paddies. Entering the main door flower petals were strewn along the walkway to the master suite.
We have never been in a house were every detail has been thought out to perfection with the aim of total comfort. Each bedroom is bedroom is beautiful, the house is splendid, open to the vista, sun, and soft air.
The staff is exceptional, friendly and gracious, their goal, well met, is to cater to one's every need and wish. We had many meals at the Villa, local in nature and all delicious.
It was hard to tear ourselves away from the pool, or from private massages given outside under a thatched roof surrounded by trees and flowers. it was the best vacation we have ever had.
We can't wait to return.

This is about as paradise-y as you can get. If you're considering a stay at the Villa Vajra, do it! We were two couples and had plenty of room, great bedrooms, and an amazing indoor-outdoor living space. The staff and cooks are fantastic and Joel and Nirgrantha will make you feel right at home and can help organize trips out from the Vajra. The best place we stayed in a month of traveling Southeast asia.
