Fifty minutes and a world away from the beach resorts of Bali is the seemingly unremarkable village of Kedewatan.
But step down a humble driveway, past a traditional gate entrance, and your senses are assailed by the breathtaking vastness of the mighty Ayung Valley. Here, perched high on the valley rim, is the Villa Indah.
Commanding views of tiered, manicured, rice paddies below, the rolling rapids of the Ayung and palm covered hills and volcanic peaks beyond, Villa Indah is a vantage point like no other, its position regarded as one of the best along the entire valley.
"This is quite possibly one of the world's spectacular retreats". A short stay will live long in the memory. Which may be why so many Villa Indah visitors return time and time again.
Bringing together western amenities with classic Balinese feel and form, Villa Indah comprises 3 magnificent 2-storeyed villas. Each Villa level is private and self-contained with room combinations suited to individuals, couples or families.
Established in 1988, Villa Indah has been refurbished and represented to standards worthy of its unique position.
Located midway between the lakes, mountains and ocean, in Bali's cultural heartland, Villa Indah is the ideal base from which to explore Bali.
Within easy walking, you can visit artists' studios and galleries, temples, craft shops, markets and the sacred monkey forest. All of Bali's most exotic dances are performed regularly in Ubud to the beat of gamelan music, and the range of bars and restaurants is the equal of any in Bali.
Religious life is embracing; processions and ceremonies everyday occurrences, as the friendly people of Bali acknowledge the great abundance of natural beauty with which they are blessed.
