Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Umah Shanti welcomes you to Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali that is resplendent in a cloak of lush green rice fields and a backdrop of traditional Balinese villages. The villa is completely surrounded by rainforest jungle, as far as the eye can see and below, the river runs its course. The ambiance is utterly peaceful, no wonder this villa is called Umah Shanti, which translates to 'house of peace'. With three separate bedroom bungalows, this villa is a dream come true for those seeking a traditional home away from home with a back to nature feel. It will be traumatic to leave!
The master suite has direct access to the swimming pool, great for a midnight swim or an early morning dive. The room is characterized by a yellow terrazzo floor and a stunning canopied king-size bed. For entertainment there is a TV with DVD-player and the marble en-suite is partly open-air, featuring a bathtub with view and a rain-shower.
The two guest bedrooms are found in private bungalows adjoined by a balcony. Both bungalows feature elegant wooden interiors enriched by carpets and traditional artwork. The rooms are furnished with comfy double beds, TVs with DVD-players and large wooden wardrobe closets. The en-suites are partly open-air fitted with alfresco showers and large soaking bathtubs.
A winding cobbled pathway leads down the river valley to the traditional alang-alang roofed pavilions scattered in the garden. You may feel like wondering through the Garden of Eden with all its ancient tropical trees, exotic plants and lots of orchid flowers. There is a sparkling infinity pool, perched on the edge, making you gaze at the jungle gorge below while swimming laps. After a refreshing dive in the water, you can sunbathe on the pool-side loungers or read a book in the shade of the traditional Balinese parasol.
Stepping stones over a tranquil koi fish pond, lead into the elegant living pavilion, also built on the edge, overlooking the pool and the rainforest. With its high vaulted thatched roof, orange terrazzo floor and turquoise painted walls, this pavilion breathes charm and cosiness while the full length glass doors and windows maximize the view and allow natural sunlight to shine in. There is a handsome teak dining table and a rattan lounge corner to chill out and admire the green rainforest all around you or watch movies together on the wall-mounted TV with DVD-player. The open-plan kitchen is located in the back adjoined by a breakfast-bar to enjoy your coffee in the morning. Adjoined to one of the bedrooms, there is a quiet study room fitted with a circular table where you can play boardgames and a writing desk with view for reading books.
The villa is fully staffed with a friendly manager, cook, housekeeping, gardener and security guards. You will be welcomed warmly with Balinese hospitality and the staff will be happy to arrange transport, day-trips, in-villa massages and so on. A free shuttle bus to Ubud centre is offered daily.
Villa Umah Shanti is nestled in a quiet traditional village where you can see the authentic rural Balinese life and the only sounds you will hear are those of nature, animal and enchanting music of ceremonies at the village temple. However, it is just a short drive to the centre of Ubud where you can eat at health café's, practice yoga, walk though the Monkey Forest and watch a traditional Kecak Dance at the Ubud Palace. Don't miss out on a trekking through the emerald rice paddies and rafting on the yung river for the more adventurous ones.
A unique spot for a global family reunion, we had 4 nights in a villa unlike anything we had seen before, set in a luscious tropical valley this villa comprises 3 buildings allowing privacy and space for 3 couples. The standard of the accommodation, the staff and the atmosphere were tremendous. Left with some fantastic memories. This is not the easiest villa to find nor is it young child/mobility challenged friendly, but for a family with older children or a group of friends it is magnificent. Wahtu our driver was terrific and organised our volcano trek and cycling (Purnama Tourist Services). This place just makes you feel good.
