The quiet traditional village of Sebali, home to Villa Vajra, is a one hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. From Sebali new road winding through tiny villages, river valleys and panoramic views of Bali’s emblematic rice fields leads to the town of Ubud. As Bali is renowned for its arts and culture, Ubud is its artistic hub. Each of the surrounding villages specializes in one of the native arts of traditional or contemporary painting, wood or stone carving, delicately modeled silver and other jewelry, batik textiles, and furniture making. Ubud’s museums showcase the island’s rich history and the numerous art galleries, shops and market stalls sell handicrafts, paintings, wood carvings &c. It is also a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Kecak, Fire, Monkey, and Legong dances delicately performed and elaborately costumed in their original temple settings.
The Villa is named Vajra. The Vajra is a Tibetan Buddhist ceremonial object; it is a symbol for the wisdom that cuts through ignorance, with the ultimate goal of compassion and equanimity. The Villa is designed to create an aura of peace and tranquility. Vajra is located 300 metres above sea level in the foothills of the central mountain range; this gives it a fresher, more pleasant climate than the southern coastal regions. The location is also very convenient for tours all over the island and is only a forty-minute drive from the coast
Music, which can be heard throughout the grounds, is controlled from the comfortable library which overlooks the living room. It is the entertainment center, offering a growing library, games, music, television, and DVD movies.
The night lighting is particularly breathtaking.
The villa includes 3 full bedrooms, and a lounge which can be converted to sleep two persons (hence our description of the villa as containing “3.5 bedrooms”). Two of the bedrooms face the river valley, one faces the rice fields. To read full descriptions of each room, use the links on the left side of this page.
The total living area of the villa is 8,000 m2, and the total area of the ground is 18,867 m2.
The Master Bedroom, Guest Room, Studio and Study each feature individually controlled air-conditioning units and powerful ceiling fans to keep the rooms pleasantly cool. There are telephone lines for IDD calls and in-house calls in each room, and also safety deposit boxes. At night the villa takes on a different persona, with cleverly concealed lighting. Guests will appreciate the fresh cool air, and will be serenaded by a chorus of frog song to the accompaniment of ritual music from the village temples and the constant murmur of the river.
There is a barbeque terrace at the front of the villa beside the rice fields and parking space for up to six vehicles. Due to the steep hillside elevation, the villa is not recommended for disabled people or young children.
