About Villa Bodhi


Named after the tree of enlightenment, Villa Bodhi is less than 30 minutes from the centre of Ubud, overlooking an untouched river valley just north of Ubud’s luxury five-star resorts. Created by Hawaii born designer, Amos Kotomori, this lush, art-filled residence showcases several modernised joglo-style pavilions set within manicured tropical gardens and a saltwater pool with panoramic views. Perfect for multi-generational families and friends travelling together, Villa Bodhi is also an ideal spot for small wedding ceremonies and special celebrations.

Bedrooms


Each one of Villa Bodhi’s four unique bedrooms is like a private suite and exudes an exotic rustic charm, decorated with hand-picked antiques from Asia.

Jaya House is a two story building located next to the entrance of Villa Bodhi. The ground floor offers a spacious living area with a TV, comfortable sofas and chairs and a daybed that can be converted into a large single bed upon request. It also has a guest bathroom with a beautiful marble bathtub and a natural stone washbasin. The upstairs master bedroom boasts a carved four-poster king-size bed, a writing desk and an ensuite with stone bathtub and standing shower. From the balcony, you get lovely views of the gardens and jungle.

Sri House is in the style of a traditional Indonesian gladek house and is accessible by wheelchair. The room has two canopied double beds with crisp linens, a dressing area and a semi-outdoor ensuite bathroom with a small garden and generous rain shower.

Menala House is an adorable teak cottage from the nineteenth century, that has been entirely restored. It sits on the edge of the property with its own small fishpond and a covered porch overlooking the jungle. The bedroom has twin beds which can be converted to a double bed. The ensuite bathroom with a private garden has a stone bathtub and walk-in shower.

Laba House is directly beside the pool, and it has a large wooden deck with dramatic views of the surrounding jungle. The bedroom has a king sized four poster bed and the ensuite bathroom boasts a free-standing stone bathtub that sits underneath an open skylight that is partially covered by tree branches.

Living Area


At the heart of Villa Bodhi is a massive open-sided wooden joglo that serves as a living space and dining area. The decor is an impeccable mix of beautiful antique wooden tables and chairs, sofas with plush multi-colored cushions to relax on and admire the views of the gardens and jungle. A covered wooden bridge leads from the living pavilion to the dining pavilion furnished with a teak table that can seat up to ten people. Through decorative sliding doors, the simple kitchen is fully appointed for self-catering, with a five-burner gas stove, oven and large refrigerator.

Outdoor & Pool Area


Go for a soothing swim in the 10 meter saltwater infinity pool that overlooks the jungle and the valley and relax on one of the sun loungers on the pool deck. Serene lotus ponds, vibrant tropical flowers, and manicured lawns surround the pool and living pavilion and stone pathways make their way through grassy expanses that lead to each of the four cottages.

Service & Staff


The friendly staff will welcome you with genuine balinese smiles and are always on hand to make sure you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

Around Villa Bodhi


Villa Bodhi is nestled in the quiet village of Bukian, in Payangan, just 7 kilometers from Ubud with its well-known cultural performances, shops and restaurants. The Elephant Safari Park is just 2 kilometres away from the villa and the excellent Bali Bird Park is a 30 minutes drive. Or if you’re after something more adventurous, white water rafting on the Ayung River is available just 10 minutes from the villa.

Excellent location in the hills. Very welcoming staff, you can ask Made (the current manager) for a short history on hindu culture, he will be more then happy to translate it into english for you. The mansion itself is a beautiful mostly single storey house. The place is huge. You could build a volleyball court and still have space to plan a basketball game(slight exaggeration). The roof is imported from Java(100 year old antiquated teak) The owner(Hawaiian Japanese)is a fashion designer and his taste in aesthetics is beautiful. In every corner of the home there are plenty of unique objects. The singular complaint I have is, its cloudy, but being in the hills apparently it has more cloud cover then the normal base ground level villas. Love this place...

I want to thank Villa-Bali.com who found these 2 amazing villas for us. In Ubud, villa Bodhi was a in a different style than Villa Java in Pemuteran, but not less charming. The staff was very kind and helpful, and I believe that the arrangement of the buildings was perfect for our family of 4 couples (2 with kids).

Villa Bodhi is a peaceful retreat in Bali, with a very dedicated staff who allows you to organise absolutely everything! As a big family (8 adults and 4 children), we particularly appreciated to have our own privacy thanks to 4 separate small villas within the big one. The view from the swimming pool is gorgeous! I recommend the villa Bodhi for a relaxing holiday in Bali

We had a wonderful time staying at this lovely and peaceful retreat. Our song writing camp was a great success, we wrote many great new songs while having fun and relaxing. All the best, Michael Taylor & the 2nd annual Bali Song Writing Summit.
