We had an amazing stay !! Thanks to the kindness of Virginie and Oliver who gave us so many advices, helps and adresses. The wood houses are superb and the garden is beautiful. 10 minutes from Ubud but in a very nice authentic village where we had the chance to meet several balineses. On top of this, the team is very very nice and very helpful. We were so sad to leave the place and the kids wanted to stay there forever.
We recently had a magical stay at Stranded Villa in Pejeng. The location just outside of Ubud was ideal. The gardens inside the villa compound are beautiful, with tall trees and rolling green lawns leading to the infinity pool overlooking forest and river. The rooms are like art museums - built from antique, reclaimed timber and exquisitely decorated. The owner, Olivier and his staff went out of their way to make our stay and celebrations memorable. I searched hard to find a special place for our family gathering and can say that this villa was perfect in all regards.
My family visited Bali for the first time from America. We are well traveled and have had some great accommodations in our travels. Our experience while at this villa far exceeded our expectations. I am an interior designer and I'm not easily impressed, and this exquisite Balinese style villa enchanted my family and impressed me. The location in this quiet village added to the appeal. Olivier and staff (my adult children fell in love with the cook calling her Mae Mae as she was incredibly loving, kind and nurturing like a mother) were the best hosts. The communication tools provided made our communication clear and concise. Our every need was met from Motos in driveway for us to navigate the island, to great food, beverages of choice, and hot ginger tea for those who happened to have the Sniffles. I highly recommend the majestic gateway to anyone visiting the ubud area. Thank you Virginia, Olivier, and entire staff for being such a beautiful part of my families memory of Bali!
