  • A Home Away from the Ubud Hubbub

    "We recently stayed for a week at Infinity Villa's Villa Bamboo. Upon getting used to the different way of living in Bali than we are used to, Villa Bamboo became like a second home to us. Let me first say that Max, the villas' owner, was an extraordinary resource. Having been from New York City and never to Bali, we weren't familiar with what to expect in the country. Max was fast and extensive in his responses and and in his assistance in setting up activities for us during our stay (we were in town primarily for a friend's wedding). We had a lot of questions, and Max would reply back to each of them usually within a day, and he helped us feel more secure about our stay. Villa Bamboo (which seems to be the mirror image of its adjacent villa) is gorgeous. When we arrived, our airport driver who works on staff introduced us to the villa and gave us an overview of the place. The villa has two floors. The downstairs is an open living room and kitchen with sliding doors that open out into an infinity pool overlooking a quiet rice field, where you might see a worker or two in the morning, or some herons or colorful birds. There is also a private bathroom and shower. Upstairs is a grand bedroom with sliding doors, great air conditioning and a ceiling fan, and a bathroom. This bathroom is more truly "outdoors" than the downstairs one, which was unusual to us but also quite novel and fun. I miss it already! Bali is a buggy place, and friendly critters cohabit with you everywhere. Since you are in the middle of a rice field, you'll see the occasional lizard or frog in the villa, taking care of bugs that might fly through. But don't let that daunt you -- it's fairly standard for Bali. The mosquito netting at night added protection but probably wasn't needed in bed: We slept soundly and comfortably as "city folk." It's about a 15-20 minute car to Ubud Main Road. Max provides a local mobile phone should you need a ride or to call for help. We learned that getting back from Ubud Main Road (about 80,000 - 100,000 Rupiah, or < US$7.50) was easiest when we asked the taxi drivers if they knew where Tegallalang Market (tuh GALL uh long) was. If so, they just hang a left there, then another left at the Children's Crossing sign about a 100 meters from there, then it's about 1.5km to Infinity Villa. Breakfast was delicious! Wifi was solid. Bali Buda delivers great food (don't order a smoothie - it'll be warm when it arrives!). We recommend Infinity Vila!"

  • Beautiful, peaceful villa with warm, wonderful staff

    "My wife and I stayed here briefly as part of our Indonesian honeymoon. We absolutely loved the villa. It was quiet, set apart from the busy and generally too-commercial Ubud. We woke to birds singing and went to sleep with just the stars. The villa was immaculate, and we enjoyed the pool, and outdoor shower and bath. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well each night. The house is filled with ornately carved doors, stone statues, carefully placed lighting, and an indoor waterfall. It, like Bali itself, marries art and function. But what made this stay so special was the staff. Juli picked us up from the airport and drove us to the villa. After a brief scooter lift to the house, he introduced us to the gardener and security officer, Ketut. We always felt safe there. Maya made us wonderful breakfasts -- both traditional Indonesian and Western options are available. On our second day, we hired Juli to take us on a local tour. We saw the traditional Barong dance, visited artisan shops, and toured temples. He even stayed with us late to make sure we saw the famous rice terraces. The next day was a special Hindu celebration -- Galungan. It is a sacred day when devout Balinese visit temples, make offerings to ancestors, and visit families. All the villages were decorated with beautiful penjor -- tall bamboo poles covered with flowers and other offerings. We were deeply honored when Juli invited us to attend the local temple with him and his son. We first met his wife and children and enjoyed some Balinese coffee and jaja cakes. At the temple, Juli guided us through the ceremony. It was one of the most special and sacred parts of our trip. After leaving, we went to Nusa Dua for two nights to enjoy the beach before returning to winter in New England. Immediately we missed Rumah Cahaya and the people of Penestanan. Nusa Dua felt artificial and inauthentic. Next time we will stay at Rumah Cahaya and skip the touristy resort. We could not recommend Rumah Cahaya more strongly. It is perfect for a couple or small family, and ideal for those wishing to see the "real" Bali and avoid the more commercial centers."
