The weather in Payangan is cooler, and without the mosquito problems they have in the south.

The numerous art galleries in Ubud display traditional and modern work; the museums showcase the island's rich history, and the shops and the market stalls sell handicrafts, jewellery, woodcarvings, textiles, paintings and antiques.

There are many, well-presented, cultural performances staged in the town, in particular the Hindu epic, the Ramayana; also the Kecak Dance, the Fire Dance, the Monkey Dance and the Legong Dance.

About Pamela J Rowe

Nearly 25 years ago have passed since Royal Rowe decided to leave his native America and take on new properties for Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts [36 years] all over Asia and Africa.

The story of the two-floor, four bedroom villa, which Royal Rowe designed with his wife, Pamela - owner of "Buckingham Rowe" jewelry - goes back to 2000, when the couple decided to buy land and build a "Chinoiserie" villa in Bali.

The property took 11 1/2 months to complete. Royal's respect for heritage and craftsmanship is evident in the interior, which is filled with handmade furniture. "Each piece has a story".

With 25 years of Bali knowledge, the couple created a private residence that offers guests the benefits of local insights and a true understanding of what travelers want.

This secure residence is a luxury sanctuary, an urban residence for leisure travelers who are looking to stay a little longer than usual in Bali, and for those who want to see Bali from a different perspective. Enjoy the island at a pace you wouldn’t in hotels.

The house was designed for spending time "Indoors and Outdoors". The garden surrounds the villa, and offers serval places to enjoy good wine and beautiful fresh food. It's a beautiful place for a family gathering whatever the weather.

Being in the mountains and on the river; you feel the serenity of being upcountry with no big developments, major construction or noisy discos to disturb them here.

The weather in Payangan is cooler, and without the mosquito problems they have in the south.

Pamela J Rowe purchased this villa in 2001

Why Pamela J Rowe chose Gianyar Regency

This is a 'sacred space', featured in many publications magazines and coffee table books due its uplifting atmosphere.

The owners go to their property to be soothed and healed, and to have their senses put in order. The entire interior is infused with a timeless purity that allows it to remain relevant. "it's a universal vision that is above fashion". "From this, new ideas will always surface".

Perhaps most notable is Royal's interest in oriental art and philosophy, which encompasses diverse movements such as Taoism and Zen Buddhism. This is manifested in a collection of serene and understand spaces that were designed of reflection, which embraces transience and imperfection.

Seeing life as it was a hundred years before in a village , exploring our living museums and enjoying our private collections as their very own exceeds expectations.

This private and immaculate property offers fresh air, clean water and privacy.

The location is 'nestled' amoung the finest hotels and residences in Bali away from Kuta beach.

Villa Puri Naga Toya offers a unique and luxury retreat in the mountains. The 4 bedroom; 3 bathroom villa; is perfect for 8 persons. It is available to be rented complete with an English speaking supervisor and staff to help you with your cleaning, cooking and laundry needs.

What makes this villa unique

Stay at Puri Naga Toya and you'll feel like Balinese royalty.

Its owners have more than two decades experience in five-star luxury hotel management. This is a sanctuary to enjoy your family and friends.

The staff at Puri Naga Toya are very well trained and will help you to arrange all of your holiday schedules.

The interior is a world away from hotel-style luxury, with a private collection of antiques, excellent book collection in the Library that 'stay at home'; blended with modern amenities and attention to detail.

In the open-plan living space on the first floor is a comfortable place to relax. The painting by the Antique Chinese bed is by Gorbachev. The ceramics and statutes are pieces from Asia.

-From the windows I see the beauty and transformation of the mountains emerging from the horizon.

-Take a walk in the village in all seasons; see the offerings being laid out, men sitting outside their family compounds patting their prized roosters, and Balinese children playing in the streets.

-Or, stay at home and enjoy the walled garden. The lack of decoration encourages one to appreciate the silence and instils a deep sense of spiritual freedom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pamela -

Hello, hello, hello!! In a nutshell, our stay was ... wow. Simply the best, warmest, most physically beautiful stay we've ever had anywhere. Henry said it was like living in an art museum. He goes on and on about Puri Naga Toya to people, and he's not easy to impress. :)

Your staff, as you know, are incredible. They made our visit to Puri Naga Toya so happy and pleasant. In particular, they elevated the day of our vow renewal ceremony from special to magical. We ALL seemed to enjoy the ceremony and the day; they seemed almost as excited as Henry and I were! I took some home video, and you can hear everyone laughing and talking and just having a great time as we were setting up and I was practicing walking across the grounds with the gigantic fruit bowl on my head without dumping it into the pond. :) I was extremely touched that the entire staff, even Agung the night security guard, attended our ceremony in traditional temple dress. They are all just wonderful people.

Ubud Preferred Villa- a Stylish Residence in Pristine Nature

Oasis of tranquility with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 5 nights while I attended the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Oct. The villa is located 40 minutes from Ubud and it was a wonderful oasis to come back to after a busy day of festival happenings. The villa has been thoughtfully planned architecturally to take full advantage of the breathtaking view and it was lovely to wake up each day to that view and the fresh cool mountain air, it's quite an elevation. And no mosquitos! The owners have an extensive collection of antique furniture, paintings, books (including an amazing library!) and objet d'art that have been lovingly collected over their years in various parts of Asia and are displayed in a fashion that does not make the villa feel like a museum but rather a luxurious Aladdin's Grotto, with each new treasure waiting to be discovered. The gardens are equally beautiful and it was nice to have the choice of where to dine (inside or outside) each morning or evening. The amenities are luxurious and the food was delicious. Everything was very clean and the bed linen and robes are very luxurious and comfortable. Nothing was ever a trouble to the staff, everything is done in a professional way with beautiful smiling faces in a sincere manner. Very unobtrusive also. Booking was equally as easy and professional. Do not worry about the location being out of the way, that is one of the best things about the villa, and a lovely driver was arranged for me for several trips, he was very courteous and professional. I regretted not spending more time just enjoying the villa as I had a busy schedule at the festival and will come back to enjoy some quiet time at the pool and the garden next time. Thank you Pamela and Royale for a wonderful stay.

A wounderful and magic place in the middle of Bali

  • 5 of 5

This place is more than we can describe with words. The location, the view, the garden, pool, pond and the whole interior are magic. We stayed only for one week. The staff looked very well after us and we felt absolutely spoiled. Far away from Bali´s tourist centers you can relax and enjoy the beautiful nature in a very luxurious villa. We used the villa as a place for an australian-german-family-reunion. Absolutley great for us adults and the young kids. The teenagers missed a bit the touristy things (shops etc.) because it´s a bit of a drive to the center of Ubut (min. 40 min.). But every tour we booked picked us up at the place and the daily free Taxi-fare to Ubut felt familiar after a couple of times. We have to thank you Pamela and Royal to share your beautiful place with us and have to say thank you to all members of the staff. They are great people. The Webster Family - Black Forrest - Germany

Beauty and friendliness in the center of Bali

  • 5 of 5

Far away from the noises and traffic of Kuta and Ubud Puri Naga Toya is an island of beauty, friendliness and silence. The view from the house is amazing, the house itself is spacious and full of beautiful statues, paintings and furniture. The staff is kind, helpful and a source of information. They cook delicious meals and are never tired of fulfilling the guest' wishes. Here you can relax and enjoy Bali as it used to be. We discovered that good old jam karet ('rubber time' in Indonesian language) only existed at the side of the guests. The staff - including the driver - was always strict in time.

Avoid Ubud as much as you can, or go early and rent yourself a bicycle or a motorbike to check out the little villages surrounding Ubud. Take a walk from the house and visit the kampungs in the neighborhood. Everybody is nice and smiling and you might be invited for a cup of tea or a meal. Enjoy!

paradise high in the clouds

  • 5 of 5

I almost cried as i walked into the beautiful property and saw the amazing view that awaited us. Surrounded by jungle with three volcanos playing peekaboo behind the clouds. The property is stunning and the house so homely yet huge. It was so nice to be away in our own little paradise. The staff are truly amazing and from the minute they greet you with their beautiful smiles they are constantly nurturing everyone. Wayan and Made we miss you! The christmas lunch/dinner they made us will forever be one of our favourites. We will try to return one day….

Serenity away from the tourist trail

  • 4 of 5

The property is charming, away from the tourist trail with wonderful unspoilt views of the mountains and verdant forrest. The house staff are very helpful indeed. Use of the driver is an absolute must as the property is roughly 40 minutes above Ubud. The kitchen is extremely clean and we did not once get any stomach problems.

Wonderful home and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Purinagatoya is beyond words. When we arrived it was quite late. We were greeted by a wonderful dinner and an entire group of smiling faces. The following days were no less wonderful. The property is absolutely fantastic. In my opinion the photos on the web listing do not do it justice. The grounds are very well kept and the layout is something from the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The property is very spacious and provided enough diversity for the three children to embark on adventure after adventure. Every piece of furniture and all the accompanying décor are each unique in their own way and have been placed with a great deal of love.

I really cannot say enough about the hospitality and friendless of the staff. They assisted us with everything from booking transportation, to cooking, to booking entertainment venues and restaurants; and did so with professionalism and great care. They really were invaluable in making our stay a fantastic one.

A true gem is the restaurant just next door. Good food in a good setting.

I would and will recommend this property to any and all that want to go to Bali for a few days of R and R!!!

Thank you so much for making us feel at home while we were away from home.

The staff is like family members, and we are always pleased to hear that they are doing such a good job. We hope you will return, and maybe on your next visit we our "outdoor dining pavilion will be completed. Something to come back for! Warm tropical regards, Pamela and Royal

Ask the Staff to Organize a local activity at the residence with a local guide:

"A Day in the Life of a Balinese Farmer"

This offers the guest an opportunity to immerse themselves in the unique culture of Bali.

Start your day with a trek around the village with one of the local guides. Continue walking around the village on the outskirts of the residence and down the road towards Gata.

Ask if you can watch the woman make their offerings and learn about the spirituality of this culture. In Bali- every house, every building, has a temple or shrine that receives daily blessings. Small banana-leaf baskets with incense sticks and offerings are a common sight all over the island.

As you tour the village, you can see the way the villagers live. The personal touches your guide gives— they often show you their childhood games they played and talk about anecdotes as you walk among the houses—this all adds to the the experience.

After your stroll, return to Puri Naga Toya for lunch around the Pool and enjoy a something from our in-house dining menu. The meal helps enhance the experience! The flavours, setting and smells, however, are very authentic.

"Work in the fields"

Take a walk to the rice field with a local guide and watch the farmer while he works.  Ask them to share with you what has taken place prior to your arrival—ask how the plant the rice and how they harvest it.

It really back-breaking stuff, and our laboriously slow. It’s a skill that can only really be appreciated once the task is attempted.

"Balinese Massage"

Don't forget to indulge in the delights of a Balinese massage during your stay— the conclusion to your experience.
