Beginning immediately our LOW SEASON PRICE IS AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND.

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.

MASTER BEDROOM

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.

GUEST BEDROOM

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.

Study

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.

Well we have now stayed at this villa two years in a row. The service is exceptional. The staff seems to know when to leave you alone and then when to be there when you have a question or need something. Setting of the villa is wonderful. You arrive by a very narrow driveway into the courtyard. Walls obscure your views and then there is just this wonderful feeling when you walk across the rice fields to the villa. While staying in the villa your views are of a valley and jungle. You really have to make an effort to see another house or villa. Food is really good. Don't be afraid to talk to the chefs and help plan the menu. Whether it is Indionesian, Thai, Indian or even Italian everything has been really good. We love that you can just arrange for lunch or dinner and there is a minimal fee to have everything prepared just right for you. They do all the grocery shopping.

It is always fun taking showers or baths in the open jungle (wall precludes anyone from seeing you). Sure there are some bugs once in awhile, but the experience is so peaceful. There are some pathways below the villa leading to gardens, a meditation area, work out gym (equipment is outdated, but you don't really go to Ubud to workout). Getting into town is by driver. Not close enough to put the dinner clothes on and walk to town, but getting there is very easy. Driver is always available and extremely flexible with the timing and your schedule. I would say it is a perfect place for 2-4 couples or 2 families with some children. Ours are 9 and 12 years old and they love every minute of being there.

We had the pleasure of staying at Vajra for a 2nd time. This place is outstanding. It is so quiet and luxurious. The chef is great to work with. We did not eat out once while there. This is not something that we have found on a regular basis in Bali.

The staff were yet again so very friendly and accommodating. While at Vajara is it tough to even leave the villa. It is a short ride into Ubud, yet so far away from the traffic and craziness that can be in Ubud.

I would highly recommend this villa!!

I stayed in the Villa with 4 friends for a few days before we met up with our families in Legian. The Villa is beautiful and the staff make it even more wonderful. We felt totally at home and enjoyed relaxing, swimming and eating the fantastic food cooked each night by the chefs (we decided to not go into Ubud at night to eat as the food was great and it was lovely just chilling by the pool in the evening). I think it would be too quiet for my children (teenagers) but for couples/friends it is perfect. The gardens and rice paddies give a fantastic outlook. We met the owners and they were very warm and welcoming.
