River Moon is a stunning two bedroom villa. Its spacious light filled rooms have a modern aesthetic with traditional accents such as the cooling alang alang roofs. Large windows and sliding doors open up to enable outdoor/indoor living. The bedrooms feature comfortable four-poster beds with European inner spring mattresses, pillows and goose down duvets. Each bedroom has its own en suite, one with an outdoor bath. For guests who enjoy cooking River Moon has a well-equipped kitchen. One of the highlights of River Moon is the spectacular rice field views to the north and a secluded private garden with a deck facing the river to the south. Plenty of comfortable areas both inside and outside make River Moon the ideal place to relax. River Moon is secluded and you can experience authentic Balinese village life, yet it is only 10 min drive from the restaurants, shopping and services of Bali's No. 2 tourist destination, Ubud. The holistic Pelangi School for children 18months+ is 5min drive.
The surroundings and gardens: One of the highlights of River Moon is its location. With superb rice field views it is situated in a small Balinese village. All the staff who work at River Moon and, indeed, constructed the house are from the neighbouring street.
Watch the beauty and transformation of the rice fields, go for a walk in village and see offerings being laid out, men sitting outside their family compounds patting their prized roosters and Balinese children playing in the streets. Or stay at home and enjoy the plentiful comfortable places both inside and outside to relax.
The area is rich in flora and fauna. Frogs, lizards, butterflies, herons and dragonflies are daily visitors. An extremely shy turtle and monitor live in the balé pond. Only the very quiet and patient are rewarded by appearances.
Desa Bulan : River Moon is part of the intimate Desa Bulan (Moon Village) enclave of six houses designed by Martje Nietzman and Erik van der Linden. Most of the houses are owner occupied. The superb 14m salt water swimming pool with its deck and pool side balé are shared facilities.
At your doorstep: Stay at River Moon and be seduced by the quiet, contemplative environment ideal for rest and rejuvenation. Once your batteries are recharged there are many cultural, adventure and culinary experiences to be found in Ubud just 10 minutes away.
Ubud is also the host to several well known annual international events, such as Bali Spirit Festival Festival and the Ubud Readers and Writers Festival.
River Moon villa has a variety of places to sit and relax, whether it be in the balé or large day bed overlooking the rice fields, or the window seat or wooden deck facing the private gardens and the creek that runs through Desa Bulan.
An evening turn-down service is part of the on-site services.
River Moon has its own nanny, Kadek, who lives locally. Children adore her radiant, gentle and patient disposition and she speaks good English. She has 7 year old twin daughters and she is highly sought after by the Ubud expat community in Ubud. Should you be interested in hiring her please let us know.
A car seat, cot, high chair, baby bath and potty are all available at River Moon. Please let us know if you require any of these....moreless

About: Hi, my name is Ulrike and I have been living in Bali for more that 5
years. Originally from Austria, travelling has always been my passion. I
have a 6 year old boy and I'm a trained photographer, specialising in
portrait photography. Bali offers the perfect scenery and there is always
something new to discover.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast: River Moon is a beautifully designed and maintained villa. It is located in a Balinese village where you can experience authentic Balinese life and yet it is close to all the amenities that central Ubud has to offer. It is difficult not to be seduced by its charms.
