General

Welcome to Villa Beji
In Balinese, Beji means a place of holy spring water. Our staff chose the name because of the holy springs located below the villa by the sacred Petanu river. Water is gathered here for traditional ceremonies.

Many sites in Melayang are of great spiritual significance. It is known that an ancient civilization existed here more than 2,000 years ago. Two stone sarcophagi were unearthed in the village which are estimated to be 2,500 years old and are believed to have contained the bodies of local kings. They can be viewed at the Archaeological Museum in Pejeng.

The villa was also designed by Ida Bagus Wiadnyana. As with Villa Awang Awang, it was planned with the correct alignments to the holy mountain and blessing ceremonies have been held throughout the building stages in accordance with local traditions.

As far as possible, natural materials have been used – local stone, hand-made terracotta floor tiles, coconut wood columns and ironwood shingles for the roof.
Built on two levels, the main entry is on the upper level through an ornately carved Balinese doorway set in a slate wall. The upper level consists of 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, each with an en-suite with marble tiled floors, terrazzo bath tub and a natural stone open shower area. Queen-sized beds have been made from beautiful Bayur wood by a local craftsman. A large holy banyan tree shades the outdoor terrace which is furnished with black bamboo lounge chairs and is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the lush valley views.

The lower level contains the kitchen, living room, an area for outdoor dining overlooking the jungle and river, and a patio to the infinity edge pool, gazebo and sunbathing area.

Dining
Staff will prepare your complimentary breakfast at a time to suit you. Other meals and drinks can be ordered from our villa menu. Staff  only need 2 hours notice if you require a meal in order to purchase fresh food items from the market. Our trained chefs can prepare most Asian and Western dishes, including vegetarian. As far as possible, organic ingredients are harvested from our own garden. All special meal requests can be accommodated. Please email us for a copy of the Villa menu with current prices.

Location
Villa Awang Awang is situated in the traditional village of Melayang overlooking the verdant Petanu river valley five kilometres east of Ubud. The 10-minute drive from Ubud will transport you through a stunning landscape of rice terraces and jungle with Bali’s sacred volcano, Gunung Agung, towering in the distance. The villa is just over one hour’s drive from the international airport.

Ubud is Bali’s cultural hub, a conglomeration of villages positioned at the confluence of two rivers. The area has been a haven for local and foreign artists since the 1930s, and is now the island’s centre for fine arts and cultural performances, attracting art collectors, connoisseurs, writers, mystics, and people who are actively involved in anthropology, music, dance, architecture, environmentalism and alternative healing. Ubud is home to a treasure trove of art museums and galleries, featuring traditional and modern work including paintings, ceramics, carvings, sculpture, batik, weaving and photography. In the neighbouring villages, you can watch the island’s most accomplished painters, stonemasons, woodcarvers, mask makers and silversmiths at work. Ubud is also a great place for shopping; classic, contemporary and abstract paintings, plus a large range of crafts including gold and silver jewellery, woodcarvings, fabrics, clothing, pottery, batik, paintings, metalwork and antiques can all be found in the town’s numerous galleries and shops. The market is open every day selling handicrafts, garments, spices and foods, and Ubud even has its own sacred Monkey Forest. International restaurants are plentiful, although nightlife is limited with the majority of places closing around midnight. Ubud is the seat of the Sukawati Royal Family; the palace is centrally located and open to the public. There are many cultural performances staged here, in particular the famous Kecak dance, the fire dance, the monkey dance and the Legong dance.

The area is ideal for total relaxation or activities such as meditation, yoga, jungle trekking, mountain cycling and white water rafting. Numerous trails offer memorable walks, and the opportunity to witness time-honoured methods of agriculture.

The advent of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, which takes place every year in October, has made Ubud world-famous in literary circles, while the annual Bali Spirit Festival is a celebration of yoga, dance and music.

Ubud Bali

Ubud Bali

Ubud Bali is a town on the Indonesian island of Bali in Ubud District, located amongst rice paddies and steep ravines in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency. One of Bali’s major arts and culture centres, it has developed a large tourism industry.

Ubud has a population of about 30,000 people. Recently, it has become difficult to distinguish the town itself from the villages that surround it. The area surrounding the town is made up of small farms, rice paddies, and dense forest.

The laid-back town of Ubud is considered by many to be the epicenter for arts and culture in Bali. Ubud (pronounced “Ow-blood”) has developed a reputation as a place with a positive vibe, possibly explaining why so many artists and naturalists have settled in the lush, green areas around town.
Although tourism in Ubud is growing faster than the town can keep up, there is still a certain tranquility and happiness to be found in the clean air. The town has become a popular and peaceful retreat from the parties and crowded madness of Kuta just two hours away.

Nightlife info

Nightlife infoUbud is Bali's central upland destination known for its relaxing ambience and quiet, traditional atmosphere, this upland village community has several corners that prove there can be bit of life in Ubud after dark, and more to see beyond the rice terraces and temples. Although none of the venues may parallel the bars and nightclubs on Bali’s south, a few cater to night owls with a more easygoing scene and casual gatherings. While the Puri Saren Royal Palace is a great place to enjoy cultural night performances with its traditional dances, modern nightlife with live music can be had at several of the best spots around Ubud. For those wanting to get out of their quiet villas and bungalows and enjoy a night out, here is our selection of best bars and evening hotspots in Ubud.

Royal Palace Cultural Night Performances
The Puri Saren Royal Palace is the landmark of Ubud. Centrally located together with the Ubud Art Market across the road, the Royal Palace makes a great stopover during Ubud’s most common tour itineraries. In the evenings, the palace grounds hold nightly cultural performances with the most vivid gamelan orchestra and dancers in their most elaborate costumes. Shows normally start at 19:30 for approximately an hour and tickets can be bought at the entrance. Coming early is advised if you are looking for the best seat and the best angle for photos. Repertoires include the Legong and Barong dance performances. A handy tip if you are staying in Ubud: the community hall beside the palace features local youths practicing traditional Balinese dances during the day which are free to watch.

Culture and history info

Culture and history infoHistory
8th century legend tells of a Javanese priest, Rsi Markendya, who meditated at the confluence of two rivers (an auspicious site for Hindus) at the Ubud locality of Campuan. Here he founded the Gunung Lebah Temple on the valley floor, the site of which remains a pilgrim destination.
The town was originally important as a source of medicinal herbs and plants; Ubud gets its name from the Balinese word ubad (medicine).
In the late nineteenth century, Ubud became the seat of feudal lords who owed their allegiance to the king of Gianyar, at one time the most powerful of Bali's southern states. The lords were members of the satriya family of Sukawati, and were significant supporters of the village's increasingly renowned arts scene.
Tourism on the island developed after the arrival of Walter Spies, an ethnic German born in Russia who taught painting and music, and dabbled in dance. Spies and foreign painters Willem Hofker and Rudolf Bonnet entertained celebrities including Charlie Chaplin, Noël Coward, Barbara Hutton, H.G. Wells and Vicki Baum. They brought in some of the greatest artists from all over Bali to teach and train the Balinese in arts, helping Ubud become the cultural centre of Bali.

A new burst of creative energy came in 1960s in the wake of Dutch painter Arie Smit (1916-), and development of the Young Artists Movement. There are many museums in Ubud, including the Museum Puri Lukisan, Museum Neka and the Agung Rai Museum of Art.

The Bali tourist boom since the late 1960s has seen much development in the town; however, it remains a centre of artistic pursuit.

Town orientation and tourism
The main street is Jalan Raya Ubud (Jalan Raya means main road), which runs east-west through the center of town. Two long roads, Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Hanoman, extend south from Jalan Raya Ubud. Puri Saren Agung is a large palace located at the intersection of Monkey Forest and Raya Ubud roads. The home of Tjokorda Gede Agung Sukawati (1910–1978), the last "king" of Ubud, it is now occupied by his descendants and dance performances are held in its courtyard. It was also one of Ubud's first hotels, dating back to the 1930s.

The Ubud Monkey Forest is a sacred nature reserve located near the southern end of Jalan Monkey Forest. It houses a temple and approximately 340 Crab-eating Macaque (Macaca fascicularis) monkeys.

Ubud tourism focuses on culture, yoga and nature. In contrast to the main tourist area in southern Bali, the Ubud area has forests, rivers, cooler temperatures and less congestion although traffic has increased dramatically in the 21st century. A number of smaller "boutique"-style hotels are located in and around Ubud, which commonly offer spa treatments or treks up nearby mountains.

The Moon of Pejeng, in nearby Pejeng, is the largest single-cast bronze kettle drum in the world, dating from circa 300BC. It is a popular destination for tourists interested in local culture, as is the 11th century Goa Gajah, or 'Elephant Cave', temple complex.

The Blanco Renaissance Museum is also located in the town.
