VILLA DHYAN- UBUD SAYAN was built by a famous German artist painter in Balinese style with traditional materials already 20 years ago. The character as a unique artists retreat with its traditional thatched roofs, woven bamboo walls and open living areas is thoughtfully maintained and gives you an authentic BALI experience. A total renovation in 2010 made it updated in its facilities (satellite TV, air-condition, telephone and wireless Internet). It sleeps up to 7 people who get serviced by 3 Balinese doing the cooking, cleaning, laundry and gardening.
The MAIN HOUSE on ground floor a spacious living area with sofas and tables. From there breathtaking views into the river gorge, paddies and thousands of palm trees. From the main bath room, which is also on the same level leads a staircase to the master-bedroom. I
In Dec. 2011 was built a BUNGALOW with extra living room.
The STUDIO HOUSE has also a bedroom, own bathroom great view.

The villa is located on the famous ridge of the Ayung River between the FOUR SEASON and AMANDARI resort. The magnificent view from our place is one of the best in the whole area and gives the impression of living in paradise. Within 10 minutes you can get by car to the traditional country town of UBUD with its native market, countless art galleries (Tony Raka, Gaya and Agung Rai gallery as a recommendation), fine art museums (Puri Lukisan, ARMA Museum and Neka Museum), shops and numerous restaurants with excellent food. Ubud is having daily traditional dance performances, exciting cultural events (International Writers & Readers festival, Bali spirit festival) and temple festivals all around the year.

Ubud is an hour from the DENPASAR International airport, the KUTA & LEGIAN beaches and tourist hub. To SANUR and the nearest beach, it’s about 40 minutes drive. The popular white water rafting starts very close by.

We are providing mountain bikes and there are walking trails along the river.

As the villa is located at the edge of a steep property, we would not recommend it for children under 5 years old.

THE VILLA OR PART OF IT IS ALWAY RENTED WITH A CAR AND DRIVER (included in the price,10 hours a day, without gas)!

A WATERPARK called WATERBOOM is very attaactive for children and adult. About 40 minutes to go for the nearest beach at SANUR and Waterpark (WATER-BOOM)!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I came from Germany to Bali to start living and working as a free lance artist after teaching arts in Germany for 15 years and in Jakarta at the academy of fine arts in 1982. I built a studio and house for living. in 1988. Over the years the palce became more and more comfortable adding a main house and a swimming pool. Originally it was not built to be rented out.

Why the Owner Chose Ubud:
I built with the partnership and support of a local Balinese at one of the most beautiful spots of the stunning gorge of the Ayung River in the village of SAYAN 4 km, outside of the famous artists village of UBUD. I myself have not seen many other places of the tropical world that are more beautiful. The Villa has kept its originallity of Balinese architecture even providing modern bathrooms, kitchen and Internet (WIFI)

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Surrounded by unlimited views into kilometers of coconut trees, into the breathtaking gorge of the river to the paddies of the opposite side of the river and when its crear in the morning or late afternoon you can see two volcanos. And when its clear you even can see the 40 km distant Jimbaran ba with the ocean. Its a very peaceful inspiring environment. and its only 4 km from UBUD, where you find lost of restaurants, art galleries and cultural events. The Balinese staff of our house is excellent and works for more than 20 years with us.
