Penestanan villa description

Villa Laba Puseh is everything you could want in a holiday vacation home! The name, which means 'Land of Vishnu, The Preserver', is located on Temple Land in the quiet village of Penestanan, on the outskirts of Ubud, the cultural hub of Bali. This location is ideal, as you can enjoy both easy access to Ubud, (20 minute walk or $3 taxi ride) but return to your peaceful and quiet villa after your excursions.

Built with your enjoyment in mind, Laba Puseh was designed by blending the artistic talents that the Balinese are known for with the natural beauty of the outdoors. The villa is a visual feast for your eyes, as Balinese architectural details have been used throughout the entire property. These details include hand-carved wooden and stone window surrounds, gorgeous hand matted bamboo ceilings, and a coy pond you walk over to reach your front door. More than 1,000 man hours of stone-carved features are artfully placed throughout the property. At night the villa, garden and pool are beautifully lit for your continued pleasure.

The villa features two bedrooms with Balinese design four poster beds and furniture. Both bedrooms are fully air conditioned, but you may choose to enjoy the cooling natural breezes and overhead fans-the choice is yours. Each bedroom has its own bath, both showcasing beautiful, stone showers set in decorative, outdoor gardens.

In addition to being adorned with beautiful Balinese hand-carved furniture, the living room area also features a fully-equipped entertainment center for your enjoyment. Included for your entertainment pleasure are a flat screen TV with USB music port, Indovision cable TV providing international programming, a DVD player with an array of both children and adult DVD selections, and an IPOD dock. There is also a small library with books about various aspects of Balinese culture.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and appliances, should you wish to prepare some of your own snacks or meals. The dining room features a marbled topped table, although you may choose to sit at the bar, which is adorned with hand-carved, stone features. A full breakfast is served every morning and daily maid service is also provided.

The true artistic feature of the property is the swimming pool which features an amazing hand-carved sandstone surround. Water gently trickles down the wall underneath this feature and is complimented by water spouting from a replica of a temple fountain head. Next to the pool is an outdoor shower where you can rinse off. Hand woven sun beds and colorful towels complete your pool experience.

Bali is known as the Island of the Gods, so it is important to me to both respect and participate in the local spiritual customs. My family Temple and Kemara are located on the property and daily offerings with beautiful hand made baskets, flowers and incense are performed throughout the property.

Centrally located in the village of Penestanan, Laba Puseh is set back from the main road and is surrounded by rice fields. It is a five minute walk to a variety of restaurants including organic eateries and juice bars, coffee bars and bakeries, and the wonderful local Balinese warungs of which Ibu Putu's is the most famous. For more upscale dining, Bridges Restaurant is just a few minutes away. There are also a plethora of restaurants to explore in Ubud.

Your vacation villa has access to many other activities which you may find enjoyable. Laba Puseh is directly adjacent to Eve Spa, a full treatment spa center, where you can enjoy a relaxing massage, body scrub, flower petal bath, or a selection of half or full day combination packages. A variety of yoga studios and meditation centers are just a short stroll from your front door. Both the Ubud Market and the well-known Monkey Forest Road can be easily accessed after a short taxi ride or a leisurely walk through town.

Your villa manager, Ketut Puja, is available for airport transportation and can also take you on a variety of trips including Temple and village tours. Most of the villages in the Ubud area specialize in their own handicrafts, and you can find anything from wood and stone carvings, to paintings to silver jewelry, just to name a few.

Bali offers a wide variety of activities to choose from, including scuba diving ship wrecks, elephant riding in the jungle, hiking through rice fields, or strolling through museums and art galleries. Be as active as you want or just relax by the beautiful pool and read a book....your Balinese adventure awaits you!

(NOTE: If you are already in Bali, contact the Villa Manager, Ketut Puja, at telephone# 08123925944 or 0361-976146 for direct booking. If interested, inquire about reduced rates without daily breakfast and only twice weekly maid service.)

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I live on the island of Antigua in the Eastern Caribbean and have been involved in tourism my entire life. After visiting Bali in 2012, I fell in love with the lush and gorgeous scenery on the Island of the Gods, but even more so with the gracious people and their customs and spiritual traditions. With my first visit to Bali, I felt in my heart that I had 'come home' and had found my place in the world where I could experience peace, tranquility and spirituality.

Why Penestanan:
I chose Penestanan because of its tranquility, friendly people and small town atmosphere. Even though Penestanan is actually a separate village to Ubud, the proximity of the two villages does not impede access to the Ubud Market or Monkey Forest Road. Both are easy to get to, and my favorite part of going into busy Ubud for shopping and dining is returning to peaceful Penestanan and the quietness of my villa. My villa is directly adjacent to Eve Spa, which is a favorite of mine for massages and other spa services. There are many great places to eat within a few minutes' walk of the front door, plus many of these restaurants will also deliver. Yoga and meditation classes at Intuitive Flow yoga studio are only a five minute walk from the villa.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
My dear Balinese friend, Ketut Puja, spent the last year building Villa Laba Puseh for me in the quiet village of Penestanan on Temple Land. I love Balinese architecture and artistry, and Ketut made sure that it was incorporated into every aspect of this villa. Everywhere you look, you see some building aspect that was designed and built artistically including hand carved wooden window surrounds and kitchen cabinet doors, or intricate, artistic air flows built into the walls. Four different types of beautiful building stones were used in the construction process of my home. Three types of stone are from Bali, while the other was imported from Java. More than 1,000 man hours went into creating the stone-carved details that surround my villa. My favorite feature is more than four feet high and three feet wide. I can just stand and look at the stone work in amazement, marveling at the intricate hand-carved details designed by the skilled artisans who helped build my home. Everywhere you turn in Labah Puseh you see beauty. Another fabulous feature of the villa is the pool, which features a beautiful, hand-carved sandstone surround, water gently cascading down a wall beneath it and water spouting from a replica of a temple fountain head. Ketut, my friend and architect extraordinaire, also manages the villa for me. He is available for any type of day trip you could imagine or can take you on a chartered fishing trip!
