Welcome to Villa Vastu
Imagine to spend unforgettable days on one of the worlds most desired tourist destinations – BALI, also called Paradise Island and Island of the Gods.
Imagine to spend these days in a grand luxury villa instead of a boring hotel room.
Enjoy the privacy and luxury of a villa with -4-bedrooms/bathrooms, all modern amenities and a dedicated staff of eight friendly Balinese destined to serve only you. View the sunrise in tropical environment right at the rim of mighty Ayung gorge north of Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali, in face of the central mountain range, in short: Discover the true and authentic Bali, but only a short drive away from the next town.
And the best: all this luxury, privacy and dedicated service don´t cost you a fortune. VILLA VASTU is priced at roughly the same amount than a comparatively boring hotel-room of the same category.
Villa Vastu is a compound of -3-major buildings and -3-smaller edifices, a large swimmingpool, a lotus pond and a parking area. This ensemble is set in a plush tropical garden of 3700 m² with thousands of flowers and plants, circled by a parameter wall. The view opens to the magnificent panorama of the palm tree studded valley of the Ayung river and the range of extinct volcanoes.
The Design of Villa Vastu is somewhat unique. It is based on the age-old Indian science of building, named VASTU (comparable to Feng Shui). Vastu is Hindu-born and so connects to Bali with its marvellous Hindu culture. You will feel the difference.
The design also reveals a credible “green footprint”. For instance: waste water is cleaned and filtered in a multi-level cascade and serves as water for banana trees. Fresh water is lifted from a proprietary deep well. Solid sanitary waste is degraded biologically. All roofs are covered with the expensive alang-alang (thatched roof). The beautiful furniture is made from handwoven water hyazinthe roots.
Villa Vastu is also home of many valuable, original Balinese pieces of art, such as: paintings, sculptures (wood and limestone) and songket (embroidered handwoven textiles). They pay hommage to the artistic genius of Paradise Island.

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.
Sports & nature
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 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.
