The Tranquil and Relaxing Villa in the Untouched Traditional Village of Ubud
Villa Atas Awan is a serene complex of two magnificent wooden houses separated by a stunning 30 meter swimming pool. The houses, perched on a hillside among rice paddies 20 minutes north of Ubud, provide grand vistas of Bali’s central mountain range. The expansive gardens, pool decks and open sitting areas on the first and second floors of the house provide wonderful spaces for outdoor living.
The houses, which are over 100 years old, were transported from Java and reconstructed on former rice paddies on the edge of a small village. The only sounds heard at Villa Atas Awan are those of nature; birds, insects and the occasional crow of a rooster. After a day relaxing in the peace and serenity of Villa Atas Awan a trip to the small, artistic town of Ubud feels like a visit to a bustling city. Ubud, which is reached by driving through small villages and picturesque rice paddies, is Bali’s artistic capital. All manner of artists, whether working in stone, paint, wood or ceramic are located in Ubud. The town boasts arts galleries, shops, a wide variety of restaurants as well as cultural shows, bookstores and supermarkets. Ubud is approximately 75 minutes from Bali’s international airport. The houses, which were built by two brothers, reflect their love of outdoor living and Balinese art. In total there are seven bedrooms that can easily accommodate 14 or more people. The complex is ideal for groups whether they be families, seminars, yoga retreats or other groups.
