  • Great garden, gorgeous views....

    "We loved staying here. The garden and views are beautiful. The house is full of great art and furniture. It is wonderful to wake up and take in the fantastic views from the great big upstairs bed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The house is clean and comfortable as well as very cool. The location is fantastic - out of the hustle and bustle but within walking distance to lots of good places to eat. A lovely place to stay!!"

  • Luxurious but Wild, Escape from The Mundane, Get Inspired

    "I live in NYC. This place is Opposite Land. Rumah Cahaya will obliterate your stress. Need a creative sabbatical? Stay here for a month and explore the interior of Bali. There's a rainforest on one side of the villa and rice paddies on the other. We woke to bird calls and luscious views, and fell asleep to gecko chirps and faint gamelan drumming--beautiful and hypnotic. On the second day, my niece said,"WHY are Maya's breakfast eggs so good?" And then we saw the chickens and hens running through the paths of our rice paddies. That curving path is like something out of National Geographic for Kids. My two young kids saw lizards, ducks, roosters, groundhogs, mice, frogs, butterflies and snakes (butterflies are bigger than the snakes). Note: Rumah Cahaya is not for the squeamish. They’re all here, creatures great and small. Everything is benign. There’s an ongoing symphony of chirping and burping and some of it comes from the corner of the living room. The villa’s best features are the open air master bathroom and the eagle's nest, a tiny tower. Every night I’d bathe under the starriest skies—no light pollution here. After a really hot day, you bathe in the sultry perfume of frangipani. Upstairs, from the eagle's nest, you sit at an L-shaped desk while peering into a lush rainforest. The ordinary world falls away. I couldn’t stop taking panoramic shots of the rice paddies. At night if you leave the tower windows and doors wide open, a little bat might swoop in and out. My son loved that! The staff: Maya makes amazing breakfasts but she’ll let you know (by being late) that she prefers 9am to earlier. Finally we just had her make us lunch instead. She’ll also take small parcels of laundry and return them next day. Juli, the informative driver and responsive house manager, aims to please. One day he took us to the market and I left a bag of caramel cakes somewhere. He saw my disappointment and the next day came with other caramel cakes, refusing compensation. (One day, though, Juli’s brother pinch hit and charged us an arm and a leg. So, substitute Juli at your own risk!) The owner Bruce has tastefully created a luxurious home yet still in keeping with the local vernacular--wooden doors, transoms, cabinets, and wardrobe are carved with Balinese motifs, and altars and recessed nooks with Hindu statuary grace the property. My kids had so much fun exploring it all that they didn’t even realize they were learning. The same goes for me."

  • Good for the right renters - GREAT STAFF!

    "The Villa Di Abing is perfectly located on Jalan Jembawan in the center of Ubud but on a primarily residential street, which is quiet yet within easy walking distance of most restaurants, shops and artistic events. The Villa has a great many positives and some concerns depending on who you are and what you desire in a Villa. It is situated on a short well-lit lane off Jembawan right next to the reasonably good Sang Spa 2, which is on Jembawan so it does not interfere with the tranquility of the Villa’s location. The first great positive is the Staff! Iluh, the house manager, is superb and can assist you with just about any request you might have from finding things, places, and services to getting things packed up that you may have purchased and want to try and take home on the plane! There are two housekeeper-cooks, one of whom, Noman remained with us for the entire month and succeeded in fulfilling our breakfast desires and cleaning needs with the extra delights of flowers on our bed every day and cold drinks and refrigerated neck towels whenever we returned from our forays into the Bali world. The one time we went down to the pool, she and her assistant carried a cooler with drinks and cool towels so we would not have to make the long journey up and down for refreshments. Nguruh the gardener keeps the pool and lush vegetation perfect and the night watchman Gedey is always ready to help and will go to pickup dinner food from any restaurants in the area that provide take-out but no delivery! The two master bedrooms are large and the indoor/outdoor bathrooms are interesting and functional with the outdoor showers one anticipates in Bali. The smaller third bedroom is up a steep staircase (almost a ladder) with a nice full bathroom with shower down one level that serves also as the dining room – sunroom bath. It is not an appropriate bedroom for small children as the stairs are quite steep or for older persons unless they don’t mind climbing steep stairs to use the toilet. This third bedroom is not as luxurious as the other two and the bed is a Queen not a King. If you are in Ubud for a short stay to primarily eat breakfast and tour each day spending minimal time at the Villa then Villa Di Abing can be ideal. You can easily walk to restaurants in the evening, shop the market or boutique stores, attend cultural shows with little effort. The Villa is literally steps from a set of two connecting paths that take you quickly from Jalan"
