In central Bali, near Ubud's Royal Palace and only minutes from sensational shopping, superb spas, classic cultural performances and luxuriant rice fields, Villa San lies in a private and serene oasis. With open-sided living and dining areas, Villa San also features an entertainment lounge, gym, playroom, studio and meditation terrace, and comfortably accommodates 12 people in six large bedrooms nestled around a 25m lap pool - all set within lush tropical gardens. Friendly professional staff make guests feel totally relaxed at this spacious villa, which is particularly suitable for an extended family or a group of friends.
Villa San is a stone’s throw from Ubud’s Royal Palace – where cultural performances are held nightly – and very convenient for many of Ubud’s favourite treasures and attractions. While the property itself is very quiet and private, a vast, bustling local market is only 300m from the front door while a delightful variety of high quality restaurants and cafés can be found in and around the centre of town.
Ubud and her surrounding small villages are rich with culture and art. Many villages focus on a specific craft – such as woodworking, stone carving, ikat weaving or batik painting. These crafts are not just for the tourists, they have formed the livelihoods of these Balinese villagers for several hundred years. Guests can visit, watch and in many cases take classes – learning to cook local food, carve a wooden mask, dye a batik scarf, dance in a traditional performance, play an ancient brass musical instrument, or attend a life drawing session.
Villa San exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 12 adults (from 4 countries!) and we thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. Everything mentioned by other reviewers is spot on. The Villa is stunning, luxurious, huge with plenty of space to relax in peace and comfort. The staff were amazing and went out of their way to ensure a great stay. Addy, in particular, impressed everyone with his quiet, competent care - and expert cocktails! The food and housekeeping were both excellent. Highly recommended.
We were a group of 15 (4 kids) staying in Ubud - and Villa San was perfect.
It is a beautiful villa - very close to the centre of Ubud - yet you step through the gates and the noise and hustle and bustle seems miles away.
The grounds are perfectly kept and the villa is very clean and well maintained.
The staff are the trump card however - and really made our stay.
They were always there to do anything we needed - but also not hovering around.
The chef was absolutely amazing- we ended up eating every meal in as it was so delicious - and also was cost effective as only paying for the ingredients. He did such a great job as we had one coeliac guest and a couple of "no onions" guests - and everyone was happy.
One night we had the babi guling feast and the effort the whole staff went to - it was amazing and can truly recommend it. The dining was all set up outside with decorations and there was such a lovely atmosphere. A night for us all to remember.
Adi the butler was also a star - he was wonderful being so accommodating of our motley crew - playing with the children and keeping the drinks cold for us - he was wonderful.
All the staff were though - a real highlight - thank you.
We hope to be back soon!
Villa San is tucked in a side street and is a short walk to the hustle and bustle of Ubud Centre yet is so serene and quiet. With 6 bedrooms, living and dining area to accommodate 13 of us, it is perfect for families or groups. Place is well maintained. Staff were absolutely attentive to our needs and the chef cooked for us several delicious meals. Villa manager Meka, concierge Adi, driver Kuta, were always available to make arrangements for our outings. We were spoilt.
Villa San is a beautiful six bedroom luxury villa in Ubud. We stayed for a wonderful week for a family celebration. The villa staff are extraordinarily attentive (thank you to Adi and Kuta especially), and cannot do enough for you. They are kind, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. The food is sensational, and it is wonderful having a driver and chef at your disposal for your stay. The villa itself is beautiful: stunning ensuite bathrooms for each room, gorgeous garden and fabulous huge pool. The villa is situated a five minute walk from the bustling centre of Ubud, but as soon as you enter its gates, you are in quiet luxurious serenity.
My group of 6 (3 couples all in their 30s) enjoyed 4 terrific nights at Villa San. Mika and his team tended to our every need and made sure we were happy, entertained, well fed, healthy, safe and mostly importantly they kept the Bintangs very chilled.
I thought the villa was very well maintained, clean and located within a short walk of the shops and restaurants but also far enough away to avoid the noise.
We would stay here again for sure.
We stayed 2 nights at villa San which is perfectly located near center of Ubud.
The villa by itself is huge cozy and quiet with big bedrooms and many amenities.
We wants to thank the friendly staff and especially Mika the manager as well for their kindness and understanding. They are really nice persons.
We hope to be lucky to come back soon at villa San
Near by Ubud Palace and Ubud Market.
Very good service and staff! We have very excellent holiday at Villa San.
My family and I stayed at Villa San for my 50th birthday and it was amazing in every way.
The staff are wonderful, the food delicious, the setting tranquil and beautiful.
We had our 4 year old grand daughter with us, and she was made so welcome and was spoilt by the staff. Nothing is too much for these guys!
Thank you again!
All the staff were wonderful, couldn't do enough for us. It was within a short walk to the centre of Ubud. Because we had booked events to the Ubud Writers Festival, this was invaluable.
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
