Ubud, Bali
Villa Padi Menari is situated 5km north of Ubud Cultural Market in a beautiful area surrounded by rice fields. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, it is a private home catering to discerning, independent travelers who seek an exclusive experience rather than a generic hotel one. Made predominantly of wood and open to the elements, the villa is rustic and can seem weather-beaten. It is not for you if you are looking for a sterile, immaculate house.

Consisting of 3 bedrooms with ensuite baths, all bedrooms come with air-conditioning, fan, king-sized double beds with the finest hotel quality bedding and linen. A private 4m x 8m pool with lush tropical garden overlooks a spectacular view of paddy fields and coconut groves beyond. We encourage human and nature interaction and hence have only one TV with cable and DVD player in the en...

After a wonderful 4 day stay in Bali with Villa Padi Menari, the first thought on my mind when I woke up this morning was " I wish I was back at the villa!" Having rented a car at Denpasar airport, we arrived late at night but found ourselves being warmly greeted by the villa staff with freshly pressed juice...

The six night stay was comfortable and location of villa was reasonable, as I did want a somewhat remote location . However, villas is located along the main neighbourhood road and the you can hear the motorbikes , especially in the am. It can be quite annoying if you are a light sleeper.Beds were comfortable and the sheets and towels...

The villa is every bit as gorgeous as it appears to be in pics, if not more so. The host is also a sweetheart - extremely polite, accommodating and responsive, with a great team behind her who offered us great service throughout our stay as well. I would have loved to give it a 5 star review if not for...

About the neighbourhood
Venturing out of the Villa is an adventure in itself with a choice of a stroll to a nearby warung or rent a bicycle or scooter to ride through the paddy fields. Those who are keen to experience Bali’s spirituality can slip to Ashram Munivara next door for some yoga, meditation or puja (prayer) sessions.

About 500m away is Om Ham Yoga retreat where you can go for yoga, massage, facial or fresh juices and a meal.

The main road in front of the villa has recently been upgraded making the commute easy, safe and fast. The downside is that more traffic is passing by so you will hear traffic noises especially from the bedroom upstairs. We do not have crowing chickens or barking dogs but we do have scooter sounds!
Getting around
Bicycle and motorcycle rental can be arranged for you. It is an easy 10 minute ride to downtown Ubud and 10 minute ride to the iconic Tegallalang Rice Terrace further North. Our resident driver Nono is a safe driver and fantastic guide with a comfortable car and good prices - he can be at your disposal throughout your stay to take you for tours and sightseeing around the island. Guided trips to nearby waterfalls, jungle and rice field treks, white water rafting, temple visits, Kintamani, Lovina and so much more can be customised to cater to your needs. Just ask and we will be delighted to explore the options with you! Please check with me to book Nono's time.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Ngurah Rai International Airport: 40.0 km
Ferry: Padangbai: 37.0 km
Far removed from tourist trappings, you will require a scooter or a car and driver to get around, something that we can arrange for you easily.

It is advisable to prearrange transportation with us for transit to Padi Menari whether from the airport or any other part of Bali. This is to avoid you sitting in the car while your taxi driver gets lost in the labyrinth of Tegallalang rice fields!
