Bali is a fantastic choice for a holiday at almost any time of year. I know I have written many posts about this exotic destination, but I keep discovering more reasons to visit. And I have to tell you, there’s something in Bali you absolutely have to experience if you are visiting there. Their Private Pool Villa experience. It is out of this world and I guarantee that you will come away feeling like royalty no matter which one you choose.
Of course, there are choices for all budgets and tastes. Be it a forest theme or spa, a beachside villa or even the mountains. Here are my recommendations for some value for money private pool villas in the lovely quiet hills of Ubud.
Puri Sebali is modern yet rustic in its ambiance. With their villas overlooking the rice paddy fields, you can relax and take in all the lush green views in abundance.
Anahata Villa and Spa resort
Wouldn’t you like to spend an evening relaxing in an infinity pool facing a forest? Ubud has many hotels like this but most of them are quite expensive. Anahata is a great option for luxury on a budget as it has beautiful pool villas with forest views at a good price.
Santi Mandala Villa and Spa
This villa is filled with art and designed in traditional Balinese style architecture with sweeping open spaces and beautifully carved murals. You can relax in the plunge pool to cool down after a sunny day exploring the neighborhood on bicycles.
While Ulun Ubud may not have private outdoor pools, their massive bathrooms and tubs are like heated pools themselves. Check out the honeymoon suite and the tub with a view. Romantic, cozy and warm. You can enjoy it with privacy and luxurious petals and fragrant bubbles as well. In my book that ranks higher than a cold outdoor pool in winter.
Dedary Kriyamaha Ubud
This resort is close to Ubud center, and perched on the edge of a valley and surrounded by a landscape of rice fields. They have a great spa and a tranquil atmosphere surrounding the villas. Perfect for a great holiday.
The Sungu Resort
This resort is located in a painter’s village of Penestanan. Great for families and kids as the entry to the Rudana Museum and Rudana Fine Arts Gallery are free. Kids can also try painting classes there. So here, you can enjoy not only the private pool villas and an indoor pool, but also free treks to the surrounding areas.
Samakhya Villa Ubud
Serene and beautiful villas in a quiet part of Ubud. They have beautiful garden-style villas and their complimentary shuttle will take you to Ubud center. But mainly, look at those tall walls! Perfect for skinny dipping, am I right?
Well with hotels like these, you won’t feel like leaving the comfort of your room. But don’t miss out on all the art and culture that abounds Ubud. The temples, rice terraces, markets and quaint lanes are worth checking out too. Don’t leave before grabbing some more ideas for your next trip to Bali here.
