This is your chance to experience the REAL Bali, and get a glimpse into the life of a Balinese native. Each year our neighborhood temple has a celebration, and the procession passes right by the gazebo on our property. Our Balinese neighbors will be delighted to show you secret swimming holes, a waterfall, temple ruins, and local sites, that you would never find without a Balinese guide. 

When you are ready to see the sights, your driver awaits, with recommendations for a diverse range of popular attractions as well as local secrets. If you visit central Ubud, you can enjoy lunch or dinner, stroll through town, visit Monkey Forest, Ubud Palace, the Ubud market, see rice fields being planted, or watch a Balinese weaver making cloth. Your driver will be waiting for you when you are ready to go back to the villa. 

Water has special religious significance to Bali’s Hindus, and our villa is located near many of the sacred water sites, such as Lake Batur, Bali’s largest lake. 5577-foot Mount Batur, which is still an active volcano, is located in the caldera that contains Lake Batur. A key 10th-century temple, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, is dedicated to the goddess of the lake. The temple is built over one of the many hot springs said to possess curative powers. Visit the Elephant Sanctuary, and watch the elephants—and baby elephants—bathe in the pond. You’ll also have a chance to feed the elephants fruits and vegetables, which they’ll take right out of your hand. Also nearby is Goa Gajah, or Elephant Cave. The cave is carved into the cliff face, and is close to 1,000 years old. There are two square pools by the caves, with carvings of female figures spouting water. 

From the natural beauty and spiritual energy of sacred temples, to healing spa and hot spring experiences or active mountain biking, hiking, and river adventures, there is something among Bali’s attractions for every visitor to fall in love with.


The driver is available between 9am-9pm (also available earlier by request). Your stay will include one complimentary transportation, once per day, to and from central Ubud from 9am to 9pm. Additional transportation (more than once per day) to Ubud will be at additional cost.

The driver is also available for tour anywhere in Bali at an additional cost. Price lists are available displaying reasonable rates.

About The Owner

We are Michael & Ketut Taylor, an American / Balinese couple. We are passionate about organic farming and permaculture. We lived in this home for a few years with our young daughter, so it's truly a family home. Our Balinese neighbors will be delighted to show you a side of Bali you wouldn't experience without a local guide.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Gianyar

We love this neighborhood because it is truly Balinese. It was important for Ketut to have a family temple, so we built a beautiful temple on the villa grounds. From our home you can walk to temple ruins and swimming holes. It's surrounded by rice fields, and the weather is perfect year round. It's close to Ubud, so it's easy to go into town for lunch, yoga classes or anything you may wish.

What makes this villa unique

The property is beautifully landscaped, with productive organic gardens, and a beautiful large, private pool. Your stay at the villa includes a delicious breakfast, prepared by a cook who is on call daily to cook lunches and dinners (additional fee). Your driver in on-call from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with recommendations for a diverse range of popular attractions as well as local secrets.

Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa provided a space for our family to spend quality time together. The setting encouraged us all to unplug and be present with each other. The staff took very good care of us (spoiled us) providing meals using fresh ingredients from the organic garden. They also arranged for us to have massages on the patio and day trips to beaches, waterfalls, and lush forests. The floor plan also gave everyone just enough privacy when they needed it. We feel like we had the true Bali experience. Thank you!!

Romance and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This was such a romantic place! Pictures (although beautiful and true) just can't capture how peaceful it was. You won't want to leave. The staff was wonderful and arranged tours, massages and trips to the market. The also prepared delicious meals and set out fresh flowers and fruit every morning. The landscaping and organic garden will take all your stress away. The beds were amazing (it matters!!). We were spoiled by the staff but we also felt like we were alone. The evening sky and early morning walks through the trails behind the house were truly memorable.

This place will transform you. This property and gardens are perfectly maintained and presented with attention to detail. The staff will spoil you daily with fresh fruit, beautiful floral arrangements, meals and daily cleaning. The staff speaks English and can arrange guided tours, massages, rides to the market, or a drive to the north side of the island. We enjoyed morning walks through the lush vegetation right off the trail behind the house. You won't want to leave. The owners were easy to work with and quick to answer any questions we had. We will be back for sure.

Where else would I want to be?

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Ubud and we would not stay anywhere else but Villa Tirta Indah. Because we stayed here 18 months earlier and had the best time. We are a family of 6 and because I am writing this review I get to have my say......Being a mother of 4 very busy teenagers, I truly could not wait to get to this villa. I knew that once I entered the doors leading to the manicured gardens my "vacation" would begin. I did not have to make beds, cook any meals, clean, drive kids around. I could just sit back and enjoy every minute of being pampered. Iluh the manager is world class. You just have to ask her once for something and without hesitation it is done. An example would be when at Christmas all the kids (we had extra's staying with us) wanted to wear traditional Bali dress. Iluh made it happen, she borrowed from family and friends and of course her own wardrobe for the many different sizes. The photos of all 7 kids in Traditional Bali Dress will be a treasure forever. The staff could not do enough for us. They were at the villa for most of the mornings but you would never know it as they go about their chores quietly and quickly very unintrusive. We spent our days by the pool or travelling into Ubud with Putu the driver. A very careful driver with good english and knowledge of the area. kadek still makes the best coconut crepes and Gede is always there to greet you with the biggest smile. It says a lot about a place, that when you return after 18 months and the same people are working at the villa and still laughing and enjoying each other and making the best vacation for the guest. Again, I have to highly recommend this property, if it wasn't so far from Canada I would visit more often Thank you Ketut and all your wonderful staff.

Ubud Treasure

  • 5 of 5

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!
