Joglo Wooden Villa – Best for Traditional Architecture
An incredibly spacious private pool villa that superbly combines authentic Balinese architecture and craftsmanship with contemporary comforts.
Situated close enough to Ubud’s center for convenience but just far enough away to create a peaceful sanctuary, this private villa is ideal for those searching for some serenity after a day of exploring.
Like many private villas in Ubud, it’s not ideal for walking into town. But if you’re happy to hop on a scooter it’s less than 8 minutes to Ubud’s Royal Palace and central market.
Muda Living – Best for Breakfast
Crisp, bright, and artfully designed, this modern Ubud villa is ideal for solo travelers or couples looking to be pampered. Situated within a family compound, this villa technically shares the pool and kitchen with another bungalow but the lush, towering plants provide plenty of privacy.
This villa is worth booking for the free breakfast alone. A decadent feast accompanied by freshly brewed espresso served in the open-air dining area surrounded by butterflies and tropical flowers. Or if you prefer, floating in the pool.
Villa Rumah Lumbung – A Classic Private Pool Villa
Beautifully nestled amongst the rice fields, this classic private villa provides a peaceful escape from the bustle of Ubud’s center. With two large bedrooms opening up to a substantial garden area and large private pool, there’s plenty of space to stretch out.

Villa Charles – Perfect Honeymoon Villa
With a pristine infinity pool overlooking the luscious Ubud jungle, this is what having a private villa in Ubud is all about. It’s minimal, yet luxurious, design is so beautiful that you’ll never want to leave. And luckily, the private chef means you’ll never have to!
