Property description

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.

About: Welcome to River Moon and our beautiful ‘home away from home’. After coming back and forth to Ubud from Melbourne, Australia for many years, we realised that spending time here was an important part of our lives and decided it was time to own a little piece of Bali. It makes us so happy to share our gorgeous villa with you today. There is a world of beauty to explore here. Whether you find it in the streets, the temples, the smiles of the locals, or in the beautiful architecture and vista at River Moon, we know you’ll be touched by Ubud.

Why Lodtunduh, Ubud, Gianyar Regency, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
Nestled on the edge of the rice field with uninterrupted views into the horizon River Moon Villa is secluded and quiet. One of its advantages is that it close to Ubud with all its conveniences and yet it is located in a Balinese village. It's very peaceful here with sublime rice field views.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
River Moon was designed with the knowledge that young children would call it home. Everything is on one level, bedrooms are next door to each other and the two ensuite bathrooms are interconnectable meaning that you’re never far away. We also have built a wonderful relationship with Kadek who lives in the local village. She is fabulous with children and has become part of our family since our son was born. When we’re in Bali nowadays she will take him to and from school, entertain him, and if we’re not careful he comes back from the village washed with his hair in a side part. We can organise for her to spend time with your family and children during your stay.
