About Villa Vajra


In Sanskrit, Vajra means diamond and Villa Vajra is a true gem perched on a rain forest-clad river gorge in the traditional Balinese village of Sebali, just fifteen minute by car from Ubud, the arts and cultural capital of Bali. This 3-bedroom luxury villa, designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Guy Morgan, offers an appealing blend of outdoor living and luxurious indoor comfort. In an effort to preserve Bali’s environment, Villa Vajra uses organic produce on their menu whenever possible, as well as an organic wastewater garden. It’s the ideal holiday retreat for families with grown-up children or small group of friends.

Bedrooms


The queen-bedded master suite has sliding glass doors on three sides and a small balcony furnished with a daybed where you can enjoy your morning coffee while admiring the majestic views of the jungle, river valley and pool. Its large garden bathroom features a black terrazzo bathtub for two with jacuzzi fittings as well as an outdoor shower.
Directly below the master bedroom, is the Valley bedroom with sliding glass doors that look out over the river valley, a queen-bed and ensuite bathroom with bathtub and shower. Both these bedrooms face east and are filled with forest-filtered sunlight in the mornings.
The smaller, twin-bedded Sawah bedroom overlooks the rice fields and has an ensuite bathroom with marble floors and a shower.

Living Area


The access to the villa is through a passage that leads to a raised wooden walkway through uninterrupted rice fields, ensuring you of electrifying views from any part of the villa.

On the right side of the Lotus pond, you will find a study which also doubles as a media room. Equipped with a flat screen TV, DVD player, a sound system that is connected to speakers throughout the villa and the grounds, a large DVD library, books and board games. If needed, study that can be converted into an extra bedroom, creating a fourth bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom. The large windows surrounding the desk look out over the jungle and the living and dining areas below.
Located downstairs is the vast open-air living and dining room with lofty cathedral-like ceilings. The spacious living room features 2 chairs and 2 sofas with cushions, a large dining table for up to 8 guests, as well as a well-equipped kitchen for guests who wish to self-cater.
At the far end of the living room is a semi-circular wooden terrace jutting into the forest.

Outdoor, Fitness & Pool Area


Next to the living pavilion, the swimming pool and jacuzzi are set on a wooden deck furnished with sun loungers. A waterfall cascades gently into the pool, and the inviting Jacuzzi is perfect for romantic cocktails under the stars. Below the pool deck, you will find a fully equipped fitness room. A series of steps lead down from the pool to an outdoor pavilion for relaxing, meditation, yoga or spa treatments while listening to the sounds of the surrounding forest. The property descends all the way to the narrow river at the bottom of a steep gorge.

Service & Staff


The villa has a staff of ten. The manager will welcome you with warm Balinese smiles and make sure you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. For meals, Villa Vajra offers an in-house menu with dishes that are prepared using fresh local ingredients and organic produce when possible. Two cooks can prepare a wide range of Asian and Western specialties.

Around Villa Vajra

Villa Vajra: 9.8/10
Average rating based on 5 reviews

This is a wonderful villa. Much better than what the photos on the web site reveal. The staff is wonderful and the location superb. The villa is beautifully situated on the cusp of a scenic river gorge . There's lots of room to spread out and cool things for kids to explore. The only negative is the villa's proximity to a nearby temple. If you don't like temple noise, make sure to avoid this villa during prayer or ceremony days.

When you open the gates to the villa, the view of the rice paddies and a temple in the distance takes your breath away. Once you enter the villa itself, you see the white flowers hanging over the archway connecting the upstairs bedrooms and the lower floor outdoor living area and bedroom as well as the lush green forest down the valley. There are three bedrooms which is ideal for a family and even another couple. Our children enjoyed the pool as well as the walks around Ubud amongst the rice paddies. The staff and owners are all friendly and helpful. Villa Vajra makes one feel relaxed, peaceful and great for recharging your batteries!

We've just returned from a two week trip to Bali, 10 of those days spent in Seminyak. Our arrival at the Villa Vajra was like a cool compress after the bustle and noise of the south. The staff - Gusti, "Chef", Ketut, Saba, Widi and those I neglect to mention are all fabulous and made us feel totally welcome and relaxed. I couldn't recommend the Villa highly enough and cannot wait to return. Many thanks.
