“1 week stay family of 4”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We travelled up with Garuda from Perth which was 3 hours and fine. Guisti the villa manager met us and we travelled up in anew toyota people carrier the 1-2 hours or so thru Ubud to the villa. Lovely accomodation just as it looks in the photos. Delightful staff who have excellent english and looked after us all very well. Food is cooked by a number of trained chefs and is of a very high standard. We went for the Balinese and really enjoyed all the dishes. The local wine is drinkable although its a good idea to bring your duty free allowance in.
Guisti transported us into Ubud as needed and we booked the odd trip such as a bike tour with halobike tours from the villa. The owners Joel and Ngarratha are a lovely couple and full of enthusiasm. I took a walk up the local village main street which is interesting - you will meet relatives of the villa staff as you wander up.
Overall a really great place to stay in central Bali.

“Pure Bliss”

I have just returned home after spending our last 4 nights in Bali at Villa Vajra over Nyepi. I now wish we spent all of our time on the island there. The photos of the villa on this website are beautiful but fail to communicate just how special it really is. The accomodations are gorgeous but it is the peace and quiet, the sound of the waterfall by the pool, the meandering garden paths leading down the valley, the fireflies over the stunning rice paddies at night, the sound of the roosters crowing and fog in the valley in the morning and the music that can be heard coming from the nearby temple faintly in the background that make it so magical. I had massages almost daily in the bale which wasn't so bad either! We had day trips planned in and around Ubud but cancelled and decided to just stay at the villa for the majority of our stay. The staff are friendly and attentive although discreet and not in your face the entire time. Gusti the manager never missed a beat recommending great restaurants, booking them for us, arranging beauty treatments and driving us to Ubud centre and also taking us to an Ogah Ogah parade at a village nearby. We mainly ate in the villa and the chef Ketut is very talented with the food very well priced. The owners are lovely and made the time to come over for a chat. They are very interesting people, we enjoyed hearing about life in Bali from their perspective and learnt a lot. They are talented artists and a photographer and we enjoyed seeing some of their work. My family and I have been to Bali more times than we can count and have stayed in many private villas, I had my wedding in one of the most pricey villas on the island but we all agree that Villa Vajra has been our favourite so far. If you are in need of the ultimate rest and relaxation I absolutely recommend staying here.

“Beyond magical”

From the graciousness of the hosts, the attentiveness of the staff, the luxury of the living accommodation, the refinement of the food, the magical setting- one is hard pressed to find words to capture our experience. We have traveled extensively in Asia, stayed in five star properties, and this Villa outstrips the finest. Hosts Joel and Nigrantha bent over backwards to ensure this was a dream vacation.
We can"t wait to come back

“An amazing oasis amidst rice fields and palm trees!”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What a treat to have stayed at this luxurious villa compound! After passing through the gate, I was overcome with awe and wonder at the sight of rice paddies and a nearby temple. So much relaxation and pampering...! The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on, and the food was nourishing and delicious. While the staff respected my privacy, it was a joy to spend time with the owners.. and their two dogs! What a memorable experience; I can't wait to visit again.

For one week in October we left our frantic jobs in Singapore and entered a world where time slowed down and nature replaced skyscrapers. Our hosts at Villa Vajra provided us with incredible meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and personalized service whenever we wanted it. We highly recommend Villa Vajra as a wonderful vacation spot. You will love the beautiful gardens, the swimming pool, the friendly staff and the ideal walking paths into Ubud.

“Our own Paradise in Ubud”
Reviewed December 15, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A group of friends and I came to Bali to celebrate my 40th birthday. We stayed four nights at the Villa Vajra in Ubud before moving to another villa in the Bukit Peninsula for three nights. From the moment we arrived, Gusti (the Villa Manager) and the rest of the Villa staff (Made, Ketut, Sabah and Wede) catered for all our needs - they cooked/ ordered for us delicious Balinese and Indonesian food when we wanted to eat in and made recommendations for restaurants in Ubud when we wanted to eat out; helped organise massages and yoga and made recommendations for local cultural events and art and crafts galleries in Ubud; and made us feel right at home at the Villa. The staff at the Villa are highly professional, discreet and full of Balinese warmth.

The Villa is beautifully presented with the use of traditional and modern design; all bedrooms and bathrooms are large, comfortable and immaculate; there is a large living/ dining space that opens out completely onto an external patio (where the early morning yoga sessions are held!) and pool area, giving a wonderful sense of space and freedom. There is a meditation/ massage area in the lower level set amidst a beautiful garden. The villa is nestled into rice paddies on one side and sits at the top of a ridge over looking a valley on the other side - it is very private with no other adjacent properties i.

Joel and Nigrantha (the owners) live close by in a separate villa across the paddies - they were the most interesting and gracious hosts with two adorable dogs in tow. They told me that most people who come to stay at the Villa Vajra often wish they had booked for a longer stay; how right they are - four nights was not enough to fully appreciate what charms of this Villa. I could not have wished for a more beautiful place to come with my friends.

Thanks you all very much.
