  • 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."

  • Wonderful Whitney Bungalow

    "We, my daughter, my husband and I spent 5 beautiful days at Whitney Bungalow in February. The house is lovely, the pool terrific and the location quiet, but within a short drive to the centre of Ubud. We loved every minute at this beautiful home. We would highly recommend having Made, the house manager and cook, prepare your meals. She made us a fabulous breakfast every morning and an equally good dinner every night. We couldn't wait to get up in the morning to the plate of fresh fruit that was the best we have ever had. Made's husband Jesse and her nephew, were our drivers for the 5 days we were there. They are both very good drivers (you will want a driver given the chaotic traffic in Ubud and the surrounding area) and very reliable and nice, as well as good tour guides. I would highly recommend this lovely rental property and wish it were closer, so we could return again and again."

  • Utmost comfort, hospitality, and luxury at Villa Satori

    "We spent a wonderful 5 days and 4 nights at Villa Satori in early December. From booking to saying goodbye, everything about this property was five stars. Kasey was friendly, easy to contact and very helpful when booking Villa Satori. She's got great personal notes for the Ubud area on things to do, places to eat, etc. As a TV producer who is always planning travel logistics, I spent this holiday going with the flow. Villa Satori has everything that makes going with the flow easy yet productive at the same time. They have staff that are local to the Ubud area and Bali in general that are able to set up massages, day trips, etc very efficiently. The two wonderful staff members, Wayan and Ketut, are excellent. They go above and beyond in every aspect to make sure your time is comfortable. They are incredibly warm and friendly and keep the villa spotless. I wish I had them around for my own house! There is nothing more relaxing than waking up to the delicious made to order breakfasts by Wayan. If you follow it up with a in house massage (they've got a massage table or two they set up in the villa), your morning will be pretty much perfect. The villa itself is gorgeous. It's obvious the villa is a labor of love for Kasey as well as her home away from home from the details. Each room is sizable, beautifully appointed, and every bed is comfortable. It's a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Ubud, but set far enough away that you can escape it all as well. It is peaceful, serene, and you will see more of the real Indonesian life away from the crowds of tourists. It would suffice to say that everyone in my family (my parents, brother in his twenties, and husband) were sad to leave and wished we had more time to spend at the villa. When we return, we hope Villa Satori is available because we'd stay there again in a heartbeat."

  • Amazing, romantic, perfect getaway!

    "This villa is a the perfect place to escape and unwind. It is surrounded by beautiful green rice paddies and mountains in the distance. We watched a storm roll in from the bedroom balcony and even from the bed with floor to ceiling windows. Quite romantic with the mosquito netting draped over the bed (yet furnished with aircon). Though this villa is a duplex style with a shared pool, it is designed for privacy. Only 6km from the heart of Ubud, and 4km from some beautiful terraced rice paddies and local artisan shops. Max catered to our needs including a yummy dinner and great massages in our villa, bicycle and motorbike rentals, etc... Don't miss the Uma Cucina and Bridges restaurants!"
