Ubud’s Best Villas, that you simply MUST TRY

If you are wanting a magical Bali experience then you simply must try staying in a holiday Villa In Ubud. The place is jammed packed full of culture and staying in a Villa will just add to the holiday experience  & excitement of your Bali getaway.

The villas we have advertised on this  Bali Villa Escapes website are all hand picked for their privacy, charm, luxurious appointments, handy location and some for their incredible rice field views.

Bali’s culture, tradition and colourful ceremonies are a massive attraction for many tourists, but Ubud seems to add another layer of spirituality that is hard to define. As you enter the village of Ubud you will notice the serenity, zen like atmosphere & culture seem to envelope you. There is no escaping it. Think the whole Eat, Pray, Love experience and you have captured the true essence of Ubud. Ubud is all about chilling out, relaxing and absorbing the wonderful Balinese rural ambiance. Let us help you get there!

Ubud is so distinctive and so rich in Balinese culture that it stands alone as one of the must visit destinations in Bali. To go to Bali and not stay at least 1 or 2 nights in Ubud is a real lost opportunity. So the team at BVE thought we would show you some of our Villas that we exclusively manage that you might like to stay in for a day or even a few weeks.

If any of these take your fancy please get in touch with our reservation staff who are more than happy to help you book your holiday villa in Ubud

Villa Kamaniiya – 5 bedroom villa that will sleep 10 people

This is the perfect Ubud Villa for a large group of a couple of families wanting to holiday together. Go with a group or extended family and enjoy this massive villa or perhaps we should call it an estate as the grounds are huge.

The villa has got a Balinese architectural feel which seeps perfectly into the rice field back drop. This is really a retreat where you can let the whole Bali experience take over you.  The sheer size of the villa means that even if you are in a large group there are still enough spaces for you to find yourself a quiet spot and have some ‘alone time’. The location like so many of these large estates is not exactly in Ubud but about 15 minutes away from the action.  If you were ever going to try a different experience in holiday villa accommodation, then this is a must. Why not try in house yoga or get a massage by the pool. This can all be done simply by asking one of our staff.
