“Longing for Villa Vajra”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

You don't have to live in a harsh winter climate as we do to dream of returning to Villa Vajra. Yes, we were taken by the serenity of our special "home" surrounded by rice paddies and verdant palms, but we also appreciated our villa-chauffeured visits around the island and especially to artsy Ubud. Gusti, the villa manager knows all the under-the-radar spots and happily shared local lore with us.

The area around the villa is fascinating and full of temples, artisans and music, but we were just so wowed by the property itself that we spent most of our time swimming in the lovely pool and enjoying our massages and our fabulous Indonesian and Continental meals rustled up by Ketut and Made, the villa chefs. Just one long winter to get through before we go back, but for sure we will!

“Amazing experience...absolutely perfect”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This was better than we could have ever imagined. The setting was beautiful (in the middle of rice paddies and surrounded by beautiful trees), the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive to anything we wanted to do (from trips to ubud to arranging classes and the best massages ever) the Indonesian food was phenomenal and we decided to eat dinner st the villa every night because it was so good, the accommodations were spectacular. If you can't tell, we loved every moment! Thank you to the owners and the staff for a truly wonderful week that we will never forget! We'll be back.

“Magical and Delightful Villa Vajra”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

My husband and I have been to Villa Vajra twice, each time we come to Ubud. Our hosts and their staff were superb, attentive, and friendly in all ways. We were served with delicious food every meals, and the staff really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. The accommodation was clean, beautiful, and spacious. I especially enjoy the private swimming pool with waterfall, the tranquil ricefield and garden. We definitely would come back and stay again and recommend Villa Vajra to other travelers to Ubud.

“Solitude & Beauty”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Wonderful location, nestled privately on the edge of the rice fields. Magnificent gardens, and beautiful hill top walk into Ubud. Most helpful staff makes the stay a pure pleasure. Place to enjoy nature and recharge your batteries, away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud, but still close enough to enjoy all the city has to offer. Five stars.

“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
