  • Ubud Treasure

    "While at first it was very difficult for us to send payment via bank transfer, those initial fears became completely unfounded. Not being able to pay with visa was a concern; heck, the whole world deals with visa! What we discovered through this experience was that we were dealing with warm, friendly, down-home people in Ketut and her staff. The payment method was a reflection of the care and meticulous detail that was invested in ensuring a vacation second to none. As we had stayed in Seminyak for a week, the Villa Tirta's driver, Ariya, picked us all up and transported us to the waiting luxury of this beautiful villa about 15 minutes outside of Ubud. Luxury was an understatement as we were completely awed upon arrival! The grounds are meticulously kept: the organic garden, the fabulous pool and its decking, the family temple with accompanying daily offerings ceremonies, etc. The villa itself is beyond luxurious: a spacious, clean and extremely well-stocked kitchen, three large beautiful bedroooms with fans and A/C and a large inviting dining area. The upstairs bedroom complete with a huge balcony / terrace was where my wife and I started our day with coffee and tea; it was an excellent getaway in itself for yoga meditation, internet browsing, etc. Ariya, our driver was so accommodating as he waited to take us wherever we wanted to go. Daily trips to Ubud or day-long excursions were thoroughly enjoyed in the air conditioned comfort of his spacious van. Illuh, Petu and the rest of the staff ensured that our breakfasts were always scrumptious and prepared us for a day of activity or leisure. The traditional western breakfasts or the wonderful pineapple, coconut or banana crepes were mouth watering! Dinners were also available by Illuh and the girls upon demand; they were definitely the best meals we had in Bali from the gado-gado, to the chicken satay and pork, fish and chicken dishes to the vegetarian dishes - there was something for everyone in our group. There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that we would return to this villa if we ever planned another trip to Bali. The staff of the villa Tirta Indah treated us like family and facilitated one of the most enjoyable vacations ever!"

  • A great villa in a great location!

    "We (couple) stayed in the villa for 5 nights in July. The villa provides very comfortable accommodation and is well placed to explore the areas around, including central Ubud, on foot, while being far enough removed to provide peace and tranquility. Plenty of good places to eat within walking distance. The villa is located high on a ridge with great views in all directions. Ibu Putu, Ketut, Wayan and family looked after us very well, including pick up and drop off at the airport, a day trip by car, and breakfast every morning. Not to mention carrying our bags up the stairs! All up, we can totally recommend the villa, its location, and the support given from the time you arrive at the airport until you leave."

  • 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."

  • Awesome private, quiet villa

    "We just stayed at Robin's villa for 5 days. It was absolutely wonderful. We were a party of three, me, my husband and our 15 year old son. The pool is great, clean and cool. The villa is on the edge of a river valley forest, great for bird watching. The entrance to the villa is surrounded by rice paddies. The grounds are exceptional, many places to sit, relax, and deflate from stress. There is one room with air conditioning, which worked for us as the second bedroom was cool at night. We rented scooters, if you want to eat in Ubud you need transportation or its a pretty long walk. You could do it by bicycle. Wayan the driver and manager really helped us out by being an exceptional driver, very knowledgeable and friendly. Made the villa keeper is super nice and cooks really nice meals. We loved this villa's staff. We usually spend more on villas but this one is a true gem especially for the price. Highly recommended."
