Villa Beji in Melayang, Bali
In Balinese, Beji means a place of holy spring water. Our staff chose the name because of the holy springs located below the villa by the sacred Petanu River. Water is gathered here for traditional ceremonies. Many sites in Melayang are of great spiritual significance. It is known that an ancient civilization existed here more than 2,000 years ago. Two stone sarcophagi were unearthed in the village which are estimated to be 2,500 years old and are believed to have contained the bodies of local kings. They can be viewed at the Archaeological Museum in Pejeng. The villa was designed by Ida Bagus Wiadnyana. As with Villa Awang Awang, it was planned with the correct alignments to the holy mountain and blessing ceremonies have been held throughout the building stages in accordance with local traditions.
As far as possible, natural materials have been used – local stone, hand-made terracotta floor tiles, coconut wood columns and ironwood shingles for the roof.
Built on two levels, the main entry is on the upper level through an ornately carved Balinese doorway set in a slate wall. The upper level consists of 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, each with an en-suite with marble tiled floors, terrazzo bath tub and a natural stone open shower area. Queen-sized beds have been made from beautiful Bayur wood by a local craftsman. A large holy banyan tree shades the outdoor terrace which is furnished with black bamboo lounge chairs and is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the lush valley views. The lower level contains the kitchen, living room, an area for outdoor dining overlooking the jungle and river, and a patio to the infinity edge pool, gazebo and sunbathing area.
Our on-site villa manager oversees and coordinates the staff and property and assists you during your stay. He is on call 24 hours a day. All of the staff are from the village of Melayang or the adjacent village of Bintang Kuning (Yellow Star). Staff are working from 7am -11pm. Our village is very safe but for your extra peace of mind we have a night security guard on duty from 11pm – 7am.
Villa Awang Awang is situated in the traditional village of Melayang overlooking the verdant Petanu river valley five kilometres east of Ubud. The 10-minute drive from Ubud will transport you through a stunning landscape of rice terraces and jungle with Bali’s sacred volcano, Gunung Agung, towering in the distance.
