About Villa Orchids
Hidden away at the end of a road in the traditional village of Keliki Kawan
, a private paradise awaits surrounded by untouched nature and emerald green rice-fields.
Villa Orchids is a dream come true
for families or groups of friends wanting to see “the real Bali” and stay in a traditional villa with modern luxurious facilities
while still being close to the centre of Ubud.
The living area
At the entrance there is a waterfall-wall with a Buddha sculpture
, a traditional Balinese way of keeping the bad spirits away. Once inside you will be enchanted by the beauty and serenity surrounding you.
The open-plan living pavilion has a high soaring, alang-alang roof, palimanan stone walls and an amazing view over the lush green garden and rice-fields. The interior design breathes class and style
with warm orange colours, orchid flowers, carefully selected art from Balinese artists
and beautifully designed lamps.
The suede sofa-lounge and the cozy rattan day-bed are perfect places to relax and gaze at the breathtaking view and in the evening you can enjoy a delicious, freshly cooked dinner at the teak wooden dining table prepared by the excellent in-house chef-cook.
The kitchen-bar with stools is a great place to enjoy a cup of Nespresso
in the morning or a homemade cocktail
in the evening. The private spa pavilion
is the place to go to rejuvenate.
Outdoor and pool area
In the expansive garden
is spread out across 2500 m2 of tropical beauty blending in perfectly with the emerald rice-fields. The stunning infinity pool
has salt water, softening your skin and after a refreshing dive, you can sunbathe on the pool-side loungers surrounded by frangipani trees, coconut palms and other exotic beauty. In the centre stands an impressive traditional art-work
that is lighted up in the evening for another amazing sight when you are dining alfresco style
or relaxing in the traditional balé.

has a high alang-alang roof and lots of natural sunlight shining in through the window with rice-field view. The canopied king-size bed has a high quality mattress for a perfect night sleep in a fully darkened room. There is a TV with DVD-player
