Sukawati villa description

Villa Teras is nestled in a beautiful tranquil location on the outskirts of Ubud. If you're looking for culture, comfort, nature and inspiration, Ubud is arguably the best place to use as a base if you're visiting Bali. It is surrounded by most of the things that bring people to Bali -- scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, rivers and it's central location makes it easy to get from Ubud to the mountains, beaches, and major towns. Just a 20 minute drive to the internationally acclaimed Green School which makes Villa Teras a popular choice for parents with children attending Green School.

Villa Teras is located 8km from Ubud in Frangipani Lane, a quiet flower filled lane positioned in the untouched village of Batuan.

Lots of Balinese say that if you want to see what Bali looked like in the old days, visit Batuan Village. The village comprises traditional Balinese compounds and natural surroundings, and you’ll be fascinated by the residents who enthusiastically embrace the traditions and rituals observed in every facet of their life: most of them work as traditional craftsmen or artists. The name ‘Batuan’ or ‘Baturan’ can be translated as ‘tough as stone’ or ‘eating rocks’, but actually it refers to an ancient megalithic tradition in which standing stones (many of which have been found in this village) served as meeting places and ceremonial sites for the worship of ancestral spirits. So, be sure to put it on your holiday outing agenda.

Nestled above the banks of the Woz river, Villa Teras is surrounded by coconut trees, bamboo groves and offers stunning views from all rooms to the terraced rice paddies across the river.

Step back to a time where the only noises are a rushing river, the rustle of palm leaves, children’s laughter and frog symphonies. Find a stillness and peace far, far from the everyday. A lush green riot of tropical plants surround the river side of the house, whilst the garden is manicured and features a beautifully designed (10m x 7m) private pool and massage bale.

A traditional entrance leads from a gated security car parking area to the pool and garden, then down a few steps to the upper level of the house. This level is fan cooled and has a full width balcony, 2 open plan living areas, dining area and guest powder room. Also on this level, for those who love to cook, there is a new, modern, Western style kitchen featuring marble, glass, wood, with Italian stainless steel appliances. Immerse yourself in the view from full length windows on 3 sides of this huge area and double glass doors leading onto the balcony where you may watch river life go on as it has for centuries.

The second level features a total of 3 bedrooms (all individually air-conditioned), which includes 2 x double bedrooms (both with king beds) and one of these rooms also has a walk in robe and ensuite. The 3rd bedroom is a twin bedded room and shares an interconnecting bathroom with the 2nd double bedroom. There is a second entrance on this level through lovely, double wooden doors, and also an outdoor courtyard with cascading water feature. There is also a small kitchenette and sitting area.

The lower level has the house kitchen, laundry and staff quarters where staff reside and are available to assist you around the clock. A car and driver are also available if required and there are many international standard restaurants in Ubud, or in the beach areas of Sanur and Seminyak. Breakfast is included in our rates and other meals can be prepared as required.

Villa Teras is a unique, tranquil and wonderful house just waiting for your presence.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: This photo shows two of our staff at the traditional entrance to the villa Garden.I live in Sydney, Australia where I also own a licensed, boutique travel agency, My Way Travel and I manage all Villa Teras rentals through the Sydney office. Villa Teras is a very special place and I would love to spend much more time there. The village where the villa is located, is very traditional and the locals are extremely kind, friendly and always willing to help. We have fresh coconuts trees, papaya trees, banana palms, mango trees and a small herb and spice garden all located within the walled villa compound.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sukawati:
                  Villa Teras is quite unique because it is the only rented villa in our village. A lot of villas in Bali, are in compounds of many rental villas, with small walled, courtyards housing a tiny pool. Villa Teras is at the opposite end of the scale, with large, well tended, tropical gardens around the villa, with a lovely 10m x 7m pool set in the walled garden. The house is 3 levels (top 2 levels for guests and lower level for staff). Local artwork, carvings and furniture have been selected to enhance your stay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  If you want to chill out, de-stress, relax, read, eat well, swim enjoy private massages and yoga at the villa. This is the place for you. For families we can also organise our staff to babysit your children if you want to enjoy some alone time, and we are only 5 minutes away from Bali Zoo, 10 minutes from Bali Bird Park plus just 30 minutes from safe swimming at Shindu Beach, Sanur. We provide you with a complimentary car and driver for the duration of your stay.
