About Budi & Arthur
My Wife Budi and I are world travelers and enjoy meeting fun people with new ideas and knowledge. I write books on leadership psychology and culture change and speak about it globally. We have 2 super awesome children, Dante (7) and Alessandro (4), who may rush out to meet you and give you a hug (they like to meet new people and learn from them). I personally like creating as a way of life... Avalon is not a commercial venture, it is a work of art that is commercialized. Being creative and connecting function and design is like air to me. Mostly I travel for work but always add some time for interesting destinations, so far been to 39 countries and am aware of customs and cultures enough to provide Super Awesome service. While we still enjoy meeting people from everywhere, we also respect your privacy so we will not be constantly bugging you. Let us know your needs and desires in advance and we will do what need to do to give you a super experience.

A lovely stay
Loved our stay at this property, staff were fantastic. Make sure you leave a tip for the outside workers as well. Some flip flops, sun glasses and garden gloves as the construction workers have none. They work for only enough money to purchase some rice and daily offerings to the gods. We gave them a few dollars each and incense, they were so appreciative and loving. This would surly make your experience the most remarkable part of your holiday. They are truly the most lovable people you would ever meet.
Amazing stay, Thanks Budi!!!
This property is a cross between a medieval castle and an Indian Palace. We've stayed in many properties and i can say this is truly one of a kind. The photos are not as good as the real thing. Budi was an amazing hostess and she made everything so easy. They were building a new yoga platform as we stayed there, so should be complete now. Ubud is a short taxi away, about 6 or 8 kms, but included in our stay was one drop off to Ubud daily so only needed a taxi for the return. The staff were beautiful people, and they have a full menu with a variety of options. Beds were a little too firm for me, but that is simply personal preference. We had breakfast included in our stay, and it was always prepared freshly and was delicious. We sent out our laundry for cleaning and it was the staff who the next day brought to our attention that i had mistakenly left about $2000 in my pant pocket. It was promptly returned to me.... So incredibly honest staff at this Villa. I don't know if that would have happened anywhere else. It was truly an amazing stay - we had 6 adults for about 5 days there.... Just loved it. They provide lots of single use plastic bottles, which i am not a fan of, but they also have a large filling station if you bring your own water bottle, which we did. Overall - AMAZING!
True retreat in the heart of Bali
Budi and Arthur and their extensive staff welcomed us and made us feel pampered "at home" which is a unique combination. We highly recommend the Avalon villa for its balance of access to Ubud and interior Bali as well as its privacy and seclusion nestled in the bend of a river valley.
The Maxey Family
Maxey Family is beautiful and polite, it was more then happy to host them here at Avalon for a week
Best wishes for all of us

Magical Castle Villa in Ubud
Avalon is quite remarkable. Carved from a mountain and truly magical, this house/villa/castle/estate has everything you need to make your holiday remarkable. Arthur is an American & his wife, Bhudi is a Balinese woman and together they have curated and imagined a local Balinese villa experience with a global appeal. The rooms are large, extremely well appointed, the beds are comfortable and amply hung with mosquito nets, the grounds are bar none some of the best landscaping we've seen in the region. The river moves through the property and there are places to get massages, dine on Nyoman's delicious cooking, and simply read in a setting fit for royalty. You will be about 15 minutes from Ubud's city center where the Monkey Forest and Palace are, but Bhudi makes sure you get into town easily any time you'd like. It's SO nice to get out of the city and back to the quiet, mystical villa in the evenings. We really adored every minute of our stay there and cannot wait to return. And, the bathtubs? Carved from stone with goddesses surrounding you--it's a highlight :). Thank-you to Bhudi, Arthur, Nyoman and team Avalon, we already miss you! xox Zhena, Gerard, Sage, & Mia.
It was more then Happy to be Zhena family host for 8 days here at Avalon.
They are happy family and has good communication and fun to talk with, and they welcome back anytime :)
We (6 people) stayed 6 nights at Avalon. We found the place via google, and couldn't miss out on the opportunity to try this place.
We were not disappointed!
Budi and Arthur have succeeded in creating a place that adults as well as children will love. (Ours certainly did, age 10-17).
Aside from the obvious beauty shown in the pictures, there are hidden extras to enjoy, and the food is so delicious! Next time around we need to try some homecaught fish :-)
We can also recommend the terrace by the river. It's so peaceful sitting there, watching and listening to the river.
We left Avalon Villa 11 days ago, and we all miss the place and it's lovely owners!
Thank you Budi and Arthur for a great adventure! :-)
Thank you so much for your time write a review!!! ( Really Appreciated)
You are our first best guest from Denmark and is make us very happy to know and understand and so nice to host wonderful Great parent like you :)
Stay Happy & stay awesome
Best Regards, Budi & Arthur
