Fifteen minutes north of Ubud – in the middle of lush green rice paddies, with a magnificent view of Bali’s mighty Mount Agung, lies Villa Bayad – a private luxurious 4 bedroom villa with two swimming pools, surrounded by a 8000 m2 garden of sweet smelling flowers, lotus-ponds and waterfalls. Staying here is your chance of experiencing the real Bali aesthetic from the inside and at the same time enjoying the tranquility of nature and the local countryside, while your friendly staff will be right there to cater to your every need.

Villa Bayad is designed by Popo Danes, one of the most renowned architects in Southeast Asia. The villa is traditionally laid out as a compound, the 4 bedrooms being separate houses beside the main house, all connected by flower-covered pergolas. From every room there is a beautiful view across the surrounding rice terraces to Bali’s sacred volcano in the horizon.

The spacious living- and dining area opens up to a large veranda, surrounded by flower covered, multi-level fishponds and flanked by two comfortable bales, where you can relax, listening to the sprinkling water and enjoying the beautiful view.

The spa area is connecting two of the bungalows. It is a beautiful open, walled court, covered by a traditional bale in the middle of a reflecting pond, where colourful koi are swimming. Here is a natural stone bathtub and an open air waterfall styled shower and a massage bed.
