Villa Vajra & Villa Sati - Ubud _ Bali

Description | Location | Photos Gallery | Rates

Villa Vajra and Villa Sati are two luxury villas standing just 50 meters apart in the village of Sebali which is only a ten minute drive from the cultural hub of Ubud. Villa Vajra is perched dramatically on the edge of a deep river gorge, resourcefully integrated into the natural contours of the hill while the neighboring Villa Sati appears to float upon its surrounding rice fields. These romantic hideaways are classics of contemporary Balinese architecture with thatched roofs while open to the drama of their surrounding landscapes. They can be rented together or independently, and can jointly accommodate up to 9 guests. Each villa boasts its own private pool.

Villa Vajra
The “Vajra” is a quintessential symbol of Vajrayana Buddhism. It is an object used in Tibetan rituals to represent the sword of wisdom cutting through ignorance. The villa was designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Guy Morgan. It is a dramatic expression of openness to the surrounding natural setting and its spaciousness offers luxurious accommodation in its three bedrooms. This exclusive property is surrounded by landscaped gardens which fit naturally into the slopes of a river valley gorge. After a breathtaking passage through arched majestic bamboo, the approach to the villa is a raised wooden walkway through undisturbed rice fields, giving no clue to the remarkable design of the villa ahead and its electrifying views.

To preserve the integrity of this magnificent island Vajra Villas makes every effort to help our environment, from an organic waste water garden to the use of organic natural foods whenever possible. Energy saving policies will be discussed with the guests on arrival. And to celebrate Ubud’s central place in Balinese culture and the arts, Vajra Villas features a growing, exciting collection of works by local artists.

Villa Sati
Villa Sati takes its name from the Buddhist word for ‘mindfulness’. It is a magnificent hideaway. Its two thatched roof pavilions dramatically merge classical Balinese alang-alang (thatch) construction with soaring contemporary expanses of glass. It has been lovingly appointed with custom designed furnishings. It has its own plunge pool.

 
Villa Vajra & Villa Sati Rooms

Villa Vajra
- Master Bedroom
The floor of the elegantly furnished master bedroom is made of polished local merbau wood. On three sides are expansive glass sliding doors offering awesome views of the jungle, river valley and swimming pool with its statue-niched water wall. One door opens to the timbered balcony with its built-in padded bench seat providing both a viewing spot and listening post for the adjacent waterfall or distant Wos River which coils its way through the deep gorge below.

The en-suite garden bathroom features a large black terrazzo Jacuzzi bathtub which stands in strong contrast to the white Palimanan stone floor. A black terrazzo washstand supports a stylish steel washbowl, and the shower which opens directly to the garden is flanked by shelves and cabinets.

- Sawah Room
Situated on the western side of the villa, this room boasts a three sided panoramic view of the rice fields. It also has an en-suite toilet and shower room with marble floor.

- Valley Bedroom
The Valley Room is situated at pool level. It is furnished with a dreamy four-poster bed complemented by striking artwork. Sliding glass doors face the valley. The suite has its own dressing room and a garden bathroom constructed of black terrazzo.

- Study Room
Across the lotus pond stands the Study. It serves both as a media room with TV, DVD player and film library and quality sound system which has speakers throughout the villa and gardens. This room also doubles as an additional bedroom with an en-suite shower/bathroom on its private viewing terrace. An expansive cathedral window in front of the built-in desk offers a surprisingly dramatic view of the living and dining areas below.

- Living and Dining Pavilion
Accessed by an external cantilevered staircase from the pond level is the gargantuan Living-Dining pavilion. It is only on reaching this lower level that the unique architectural design of the villa can be appreciated. It stands three stories high beneath a vaulted, intricately designed thatched roof supported by coconut wood pillars on stone plinths.

Furnished with comfortable teak chairs and sofas, pendulous lanterns illuminate a large mahogany dining table. It is also a fantastic venue for parties, receptions and functions as well as quiet, peaceful living. The adjoining semi-circular timber deck overhangs the lush river valley; living jackfruit trees grow through holes cut in the deck floor, a stylish sensitive way to preserve the original forest plantings, an architectural tour de force blending style with nature.

Villa Sati
Villa Sati is designed both for full service and self sufficiency, for being totally pampered while guaranteeing privacy when desired. It accommodates 2 people in the bedroom and its fantastic loft provides 2 additional sleeper-sofas.

The striking bedroom is fully air-conditioned when needed, while the ceiling fan also provides pleasant breezes when the doors are left open to appreciate the pool-side setting. The room is furnished with a canopied queen-size bed, fitted wardrobe with personal safe deposit box, and a cozy corner setting of cushioned rattan chairs and teak table for lounging or an intimate breakfast. The attractive décor features a deep purple wall which sets off the collection of shimmering golden paintings by a talented local artist.

The adjoining open-air garden bathroom is centered around an oversized terrazzo Jacuzzi bathtub, shaded by a pergola covered by a flowering vine. The dark grey granite floor is the background for the floating teak vanity with its sculpted river stone washbasin. Colorful artwork and flowering orchids complete the picture.
