Take a look inside Villa Melati

Villa Melati is a hidden gem yet to be discovered. With traditional Balinese architecture, alang-alang roofing, a soulful rustic interior design and breathtaking views over Ubud's Ayung river, the river gorge and the emerald rice paddies, villa Melati truly is a best kept secret of Bali. Villa Melati’s namesake is one of Indonesia’s national flowers. These Melati, or Jasmine flowers, symbolize purity, eternal love and nobility, and are often used in Balinese religious ceremonies. Guests get to experience the graceful spirit of the Jasmine flower with a stay at Villa Melati. The villa is located a short 5 minute drive from Ubud, and occupies a splendid spot in a traditional village on the Sayan Ridge. Villa Melati is a haven for nature lovers, as this rainforest retreat is surrounded by raw nature, making you fall in love with this magical island for sure!


Villa Melati is located 6 km from the centre of Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. From the sleepy traditional village where the villa is found, surrounded by raw rainforests and rice paddies, a short drive takes you to Ubud centre, where you can visit art galleries, eat healthy food, practise yoga at The Yoga Barn and wonder around in the Monkey Forest. In the evening, you can watch a traditional Kecak dance in the Ubud Palace.

9.8/10 (Average rating based on 14 reviews)

The villa is little bit outside of Ubud (next to top hotels like Como, Aman,..) so it is quite but at the same time not very far from the center. The villa is very well maintained in an amazing site. The staff is very nice. We spent an amazing time! Highly recommended.

The villa is located in a very nice place with a fantastic view towards the inner Bali jungle. The area is taken care of very well and the staff is super friendly. There were only two minor criticisms about the place. First the pool is built with natural stones which sometimes leads to scratches on the skin and you can't really get out elegantly since there are no stairs to exit. And second, the AC in one of the rooms smelled a little. Besides that, the experience was marvelous and we would definitely return.

This villa is beyond expectations, looks more beautiful in reality than in photo. Rooms are beautiful and spacious, view to the jungle and the pool is great. The villa staff really take care of us and everything is comfortable. A two lovely girls there cooked for us and delicious. We had dinner twice in the villa and also breakfast both are excelent. They cook what you want : Indonesian, international ... I highly recommend this villa.

My 6-year old chose Villa Melati because of the swimming pool, but honestly this place is much more than the photos display. It is eden on earth. Set in the hillside of the Ubud hills overlooking a sea of endless of green. Waking in the morning to such a glorious site made me smile with gratitude that I have been so blessed to stay in this slice of heaven. The staff were beautiful, so attentive and caring. They doted so much on my two little girls, that my 2-year old was crying and wanted to stay with the chef forever. We were all moved by their kindness toward us. I doubt we could eat another nasi goreng for a quiet a while and I doubt we would ever eat one again that match's the chef's at Villa Melati. We stayed for new years eve and the staff put on a banquet to die for, and decorated the table with banana leaves designed in long wraps with flowers. We were so happy that we have decided to return next Christmas and live it all again. This is the most comfortable and safe place for a family holiday and an awesome getaway for a couple. We only ventured out a few times as we had everything we needed at the villa to relax. But if you do go out I'd recommend Cafe Buda in Ubud for an organic feast, and trip to the Green School to gaze on the creative genius of what Balinese can do with bamboo, not to mention how Bali is the example to the world for sustainable living.

We were like kings in our two villas with (we heartily recommend to all our friends! ). At Villa Melati, our girls loved their king size beds, the Villa Staff, their bathrooms (two with showers and bathtubs with water slides !), pools, rafting, the dog and last but not least THE cable car of the villa Melati !! We are now all fans of rice fields, waves, chicken sate and of course the friendly Balinese. We would have stayed a few more weeks if only we could!!!

Lauren (China) enjoyed a romantic stay at Villa Melati from 19/01/2014 to 21/01/2014

The only problem with Villa Melati is that you eventually have to leave, which is so difficult.
