“R&R Balinese Style”

person found this review helpful

For one week in October we left our frantic jobs in Singapore and entered a world where time slowed down and nature replaced skyscrapers. Our hosts at Villa Vajra provided us with incredible meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and personalized service whenever we wanted it. We highly recommend Villa Vajra as a wonderful vacation spot. You will love the beautiful gardens, the swimming pool, the friendly staff and the ideal walking paths into Ubud.

“Our own Paradise in Ubud”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A group of friends and I came to Bali to celebrate my 40th birthday. We stayed four nights at the Villa Vajra in Ubud before moving to another villa in the Bukit Peninsula for three nights. From the moment we arrived, Gusti (the Villa Manager) and the rest of the Villa staff (Made, Ketut, Sabah and Wede) catered for all our needs - they cooked/ ordered for us delicious Balinese and Indonesian food when we wanted to eat in and made recommendations for restaurants in Ubud when we wanted to eat out; helped organise massages and yoga and made recommendations for local cultural events and art and crafts galleries in Ubud; and made us feel right at home at the Villa. The staff at the Villa are highly professional, discreet and full of Balinese warmth.

The Villa is beautifully presented with the use of traditional and modern design; all bedrooms and bathrooms are large, comfortable and immaculate; there is a large living/ dining space that opens out completely onto an external patio (where the early morning yoga sessions are held!) and pool area, giving a wonderful sense of space and freedom. There is a meditation/ massage area in the lower level set amidst a beautiful garden. The villa is nestled into rice paddies on one side and sits at the top of a ridge over looking a valley on the other side - it is very private with no other adjacent properties i.

Joel and Nigrantha (the owners) live close by in a separate villa across the paddies - they were the most interesting and gracious hosts with two adorable dogs in tow. They told me that most people who come to stay at the Villa Vajra often wish they had booked for a longer stay; how right they are - four nights was not enough to fully appreciate what charms of this Villa. I could not have wished for a more beautiful place to come with my friends.

Thanks you all very much.

“Relaxing, Luxurious, and Unique”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We were a group of 8 friends, having just come from the beaches of Lombok. Villa Vajra is nestled into a lush jungle and rice field setting. We were astonished at the beauty both surrounding the villa and the balinese and modern designs within the villa itself. We also felt safe with their security, and welcomed by the friendly staff.
The food: the staff makes exquisite meals at very reasonable prices. We dined in the open common area, and felt like royalty! Breakfast is a choice of western-style or Balinese...I always went with the Balinese breakfast--delicious!
The staff is very helpful in organizing activities and arranging transportation. They also collected our laundry and returned it the next day, fresh and folded, for a very reasonable fee.
The rooms were very nice and each one is different. All but 1 have an outdoor style bathrooms. The master bath has a beautiful garden feel and we also had a gecko that lived in ours and ate the bugs!
The owner Joel is very friendly, and he came by a few times to visit and he gave us some great restaurant recommendations in Ubud.
We also enjoyed the beautiful pool, jacuzzi, lounge area, and the terraced walkways. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Perhaps the only recommendation I would make is stronger lighting on the "Villa Vajra" sign from the road. We had a few taxi drivers have trouble finding the villa, and it's easy to pass the turn-in without seeing the sign.

“Paradise on Earth”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

What is not to like about Villa Vajra?

From the location itself, you instantly feel relaxed and at home. On arrival you take a short stroll throughout the rice paddies, next to the temple at the centre of the village and enter the grounds of the most beautiful villa we have ever stayed in.

The staff, from the manger Gusti, Made and Ketut the chefs (and I mean chefs - not just cooks), Sabah and Wede looking after us like the family butler and the rest of almost unnoticed staff, not only made us feel at home but also at the same time managed to treat us like the King and Queen of Vajra for the week.

Joel and Nirgrantha, as the owners, live next door and more delightful neighbours you could not find. One night they invited us over for pre-dinner drinks and we had an interesting, entertaining and most enjoyable chat. They also have a meditation room and in it you can feel the spirit and the atmosphere. Again, Joel and Nirgrantha, thank you for inviting us into your home.

I cannot speak to the surroundings of Villa Vajra, as apart from the car ride in, and then a week later out, we never left the villa. What I can say of Villa Vajra is that you don't need to leave.

If you love fine food, in a stunning villa, in beautiful surroundings, serenaded to sleep each night by the gamelan orchestra in the temple next door; then look no further.

Will we be back? Planning it already!

“Much needed relaxation”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have lived in Asia for 20 years so this was not our first visit to Bali. We absolutely loved the serenity of this villa. The owners, staff and villa amenities far exceeded our expectations. The food was outstanding and our 4 teenagers were never hungry! One of the delightful things about the villa is you can still walk into Ubud if you want, but you are far enough away to avoid the chaos and traffic of Ubud. A totally relaxing treat and I will most certainly recommend this villa to anyone needing total R&R.

“DEVINE!!!”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I recently had the pleasure of staying here with my family daughter/son-in-law and my three grandchildren. We all had the most wonderful experience on so many levels. The staff are beautiful, kind and thoughtful people how go the extra mile.
The food is pure Balinese as it should be.
This is rural Bali with the accompanying culture. I'm thrilled that the children have had such a wonderful introduction to Bali. We were there during the preparations for Sawaswati so Gamelan practices were heard over the rice paddies. Much nicer than the tram going past my place. And fireflies in the rice paddies at night. Our joy was to count them each night.
Then there was kite flying in the afternoons but we weren't as successful as the Balinese at this. Still there's ways next time. Thank you to each and every one of you. Staff, fireflies, geckos and gamelans made Bali come to life.
