Featured in Family Traveller magazine, and soon the NYT and NatGeo, this nature inspired property is the perfect blend of high end Bali villa-meets super comfortable family home. A favourite for small retreats, family getaways and reunions.

The space
Villa Aalaya (Sanskrit for 'Home") is a beautiful villa made up of three antique teak buildings. The Joglo is our daytime space; containing the kitchen, dining room and sitting area, this building is completely open to the beautiful view of the forest, gorge and rice fields. Group dinners are great on our 4m x 1.5m teak dining table!

The Limasan is our private space, containing three bedrooms, a TV area, our library and two upper floor loft spaces (office and sacred space) The giant timbers and 40 foot ceilings create a stunning space to relax in.

Finally, the Gladak is a separate, self contained bedroom, made entirely of teak with its own private outdoor bathroom and veranda, with air-condition and mini fridge.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed on a tatami platform, has 2 closets, a sunken tub and separate shower.

The two bedrooms are spacious with two single beds in one, and a custom made double bed with a pull out single underneath if required. They share a bathroom which is all glass (including the roof!) with huge trees overhead, an outdoor shower and a giant two person jacuzzi tub.

The property has a curved infinity pool overlooking the rice field and gorge, a trampoline (built into the ground), a fire pit for camp fires, huge beautiful trees and a bamboo grove. There is lots of parking and it is located 100m off the village road down a private driveway, so there it is very quiet.

Villa Aalaya is located 1.4km from the main road of Ubud in the village of Kutuh Kaja. The Ubud Botanical Gardens is 500m further up our street, and the only gym in Ubud is 700m from our house.

This is a family home we finished in December 2011 and lived in for 5 years, and it was designed with children in mind.

It comes with a Villa Manager to help with any questions/concerns and is fully serviced.

Where you’ll be

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

We are a part of the village of Petulu, one of the seven core communities (banjars) that make up the small town of Ubud. We are surrounded by lush jungle and a small river that meanders past our infinity pool. Ubud itself is rich with restaurants, small boutiques, galleries, museums and all manner of wellness studios. Our neighbouring village, JungJungan, about 5 minutes up the road, is famous for its performances of the KACEK dance. You will still see local people doing daily ceremonies in our village and in our home, and will hear the vibrant birdsong of the jungle almost continuously. It is a peaceful, playful, healthy and kind part of Bali, far from the party hubs of the south.

We are from Canada, and have been working our way around the world... first with the UN, then in social enterprise in Asia, now in London as community builders.

We have two 'third culture kids' who attended the Green School Bali for 10 years because we believe in sustainability, global leadership and community. Since then we moved to London, so get a taste of life on the other side.
