About Martha & Clay Wiseman

As adventure travel experts we have been leading groups throughout Southeast Asia for over 20 years but our hearts always lead us back to Bali.

The completion of Alami Villa has fulfilled our lifelong dream of creating an ultimate island hideaway.

Martha & Clay Wiseman purchased this villa in 2009

Why Martha & Clay Wiseman chose Gianyar Regency

After years of searching for the perfect location, we finally found Tengkulak Kaja. Just minutes from the center of Ubud, yet nestled on the edge of a quiet village.

The Villa was completed at the end of 2012 and the entry gardens in January 2013.

The infinity pool was added in May 2014.

What makes this villa unique

It is rare to find such a quiet location so near to Ubud town. One look at the dramatic view of the Petanu River canyon view and you will understand why this location is truly unmatched.

Amazing place with fantastic staff

  • 5 of 5

Villa Alami is nothing short of being fantastic. The quality of the villa, the surrounding settings and not least the service level provided by Mr. Putu and the rest of the magnificent staff makes the experience unforgettable. The infinity pool with a view of the river made a perfect frame for an afternoon drink.

Unbelievable luxury at Ubud's doorstep

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Alami for 6 nights of our honeymoon. We couldn't imagine our time in Bali being any better. The pictures don't do this place justice. When you walk in, it takes your breath away. The kitchen and common areas are open air which allow you to take in the incredible view. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious, spacious and impeccably clean. We arrived to freshly cut flowers everywhere.

The villa manager Putu helped plan an incredible week of both adventure and relaxation, from biking through rice terraces to a cooking class right at our villa. We cannot recommend him enough. We told him we wanted to eat like a local so he took us to a vibrant night market, showed us his favorite suckling pig restaurant, and introduced us to many new foods and flavors. We looked forward to his arrivals as it was like having a friend show us around his village.

We visited during the country's yearly Silent Day which "forced" us to do nothing but swim and lay by the beautiful pool that overlooks the lush river valley. The fridge was always stocked with Bintang, and the staff can supply whatever you desire--we had fresh turmeric juice waiting for us by request. The amazing staff made us feel at home, were available when we needed them, but also allowed us the privacy we desired.

The location is just far enough outside of Ubud to feel authentic Balinese culture but close enough to be in downtown Ubud for dinner in 10 minutes. The staff was able to arrange all transportation which made our stay even more stress-free.

We are already dreaming of our next trip!

Stunning Villa - A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed our second stay at Villa Alami. It's hard to put into words how beautiful this villa is. If you think the photos are too good to be true you will be mistaken. It is absolutely gorgeous. Propped on the edge of a river canyon, the sights and sounds surrounding you make you feel you are in a constant state of bliss. The villa is about a ten minute drive from the center of Ubud where countless restaurants and fun shopping abound. Putu, the villa manager and his staff will tend to your every need. Putu knows the great places to eat and will be sure you have reservations and even get the best seat in the house. On both our visits we were able to experience the magic of special temple ceremonies that were happening. Putu knows everything that is going on around town and will guide you through the customs and traditions of Balinese culture. If you want yoga, Eka will come and give you an amazing session. If you want a massage the ladies will appear. If you want to see the dances Putu knows which ones are happening and where on any given night. One night we had a cook come and fix a menu we had put together. Breakfast is presented beautifully every morning and coffee and tea are handed to you as you step out of your room I really can't say enough about our stay at this villa and the staff. It is simply incredible - a slice of paradise. Eka says "Smile at the Universe" Believe me, you will be smiling! Thank you Martha!!

A dream stay - breathtaking space and lovely people

  • 5 of 5

I recently got back from celebrating my 40th b-day at Alami Villa with 6 friends - this place was perfect! The space exceeded my expectations - I had chills arriving there - and the service was top notch and the people were so lovely! We felt so well taken care. For my b-day, several cultural performances were arranged and a private chef. All tours were seamlessly planned by the house manager Putu. Highly highly highly recommend.

A week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot overstate how much I and my guests enjoyed our stay at Alami Villa. From the time of booking all the way through to our reluctant departure from the villa, the quality of service, the physical environment, and the many amenities surpassed our expectations. We had some last minute travel changes, and the owners were very gracious and flexible about accommodating them. When we arrived at the villa we were warmly greeted by the entire staff. And they immediately made us feel welcomed and very comfortable after a long journey. The villa is amazing! It is even more spacious and more well appointed than the pictures on the sight represent. They have done an excellent job with providing a living environment that seamlessly blends the living space with the outdoor environment. Something that is a real treat in the lush setting in which the villa is situated. The grounds are filled with local flora and they are impeccably maintained. The pool, of course, is another highlight and also well maintained. Beyond all of this, what really made our stay outstanding was the warmth and attentiveness of Putu, the house manager/tour guide, and the entire staff. Beyond taking great care of us, they were just a pleasure to get to know. The owners are very fortunate to have such a great team of people running the villa! We also relied on Putu as a local tour guide throughout our stay. I highly recommend arranging tours with Putu. He is a knowledgeable and gracious guide and he helped us make the most of our first visit to Bali. Bali is a magical place, and everything about our stay at Alami villa just added to that magic. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if I return to Bali.

I just returned from my at Alami Villa with 5 of my closest friends. From the minute we arrived at the entrance of the Villa we all knew that we were in for a very special stay. All the staff at the Villa were there to great us with a fresh coconut drink and whisk away all of our luggage to our rooms so we could get settled and ready for our exquisitely prepared lunch to be served. I can't say enough about the food at Alami. I highly recommend that you let them take care of all your meals, you will not be disappointed. Putu, the onsite manager, was even kind enough to arrange a shopping day with him and the chef to the local market so we could shop for our lunch and then come back and learn to cook some of the local dishes with the chef. Putu and all of the staff at Alami are some of the most kind and caring people I have ever met. They are truly the heart and soul of the Villa and want to make sure that your time there is relaxed and enjoyed to the fullest. There are so many things to do and see in the Ubud area, which I recommend you do, just make sure to leave time for enjoying the Villa, be it lounging by the pool, or getting a massage outdoors listening to the sounds of the jungle, or in the Villa's own spa room. The last night at the Villa will be one that my friends and I will hold dear to our hearts for the rest of our lives. Putu arranged for a evening party where many people from the village came to dance and perform Balinese music for us. We all got dressed up in traditional Balinese clothing and had our makeup done. Putu was even able to have a local photographer capture the entire evening and provide us with a CD of all the pictures the next day before we left. I could go on and on. You MUST experience for yourself.
