About Our Reservation Managers at Individual Bali Hospitality
The owners created this property by hand over 10 years, working with Balinese artisans and craftspeople to create a 'village' of unique living spaces. They are passionate about traditional architecture, arts, tropical gardens and the local culinary flavours. Their goal was to create a window on Bali, which is expressed in the name 'Jendela di Bali'. The real story is not the owners but our wonderful staff (Dayu Made and Suertini, pictured, and their team) who live in the local village and whose languid pace of life revolves around devotion to their gods and sharing their culture with you.
Why Our Reservation Managers at Individual Bali Hospitality chose Gianyar Sub-District
The owners wanted to create a secluded hideaway that was close enough to Ubud for coffee and cake, dining, dance performances, galleries and more - yet far enough away to be a real retreat from other tourists. The goal was to find a place that would allow our friends, family and guests to discover the genuine Balinese way of life. Our beautiful staff lovingly prepare a menu of simple but delicious Balinese and Indonesian-inspired meals for guests. Unlike many villas, we can offer all meals (breakfast is included in the rate and a menu offers lunch and dinner selections at a modest additional cost). We understand your desire to enjoy local flavours adjusted to western taste as well as the importance of quality and cleanliness in the fresh foods we present. We can cater in a modest and understanding way to special dietary needs, including gluten free and vegetarian cuisine with advance notice.
What makes this Villa unique
The highlights are being located along a beautiful gorge for nature, near a sacred village for the insights into the religion, near to Ubud for indulgence and entertainment and set in the heart of Bali near some of the island's most significant and holy temples and relic sites. Most important to us however is how real and genuine the setting is - this is not a tourist enclave, it is not a hushed monastery, this is genuine rural Balinese life with all its sights, sounds, activity. We like to say Jendela di Bali is 'a place in the heart of Bali to discover Bali's heart'. We hope you'll join us and let our wonderful staff pamper you and share a little of their culture with you.

The complex comprises 10 rock-cut candi (shrines) carved into the cliff face. They stand in 7-metre-high (23 ft) sheltered niches cut into the sheer cliff face. These monuments are thought to be dedicated to King Anak Wungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his favourite queens.

An extensive bathing place on the site was not excavated until the 1950s. These appear to have been built to ward off evil spirits.
