In the quiet, unspoiled village of Lodtunduh, three kilometers south of Ubud, Villa Pantulan overlooks verdant rice fields and Mount Batukaru. From the moment our gates are opened, you enter a world of enchantment, seclusion and tranquility, far from the noisy, crowded beach hotels and busy roads of Bali.
The Lotus Pavilion
The Lotus Pavilion is a two-story structure comprising sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. On the ground floor, a stunning wall carving depicting village life adorns the back wall. A small sofa, two chairs, a coffee table and a sofa table are covered in brown Balinese cotton. On the table and long benches are fine examples of Balinese glass and traditional wooden boat. While at upstairs, a large bedroom overlooks the rice field and swimming pool. A beautiful white stone Buddha head decorates the back of the bed, and delicate colored organza is lit from behind to cast a beautiful light on the bed at night. This is a truly romantic bedroom and as the sun sets, there is a magnificent view from this bedroom.
The bathroom includes a waterfall and a koi fish pond next to the outdoor shower. Two porcelain bowls sit on top of terrazzo counters and are well-lit by Italian light fixtures. A high wall, covered in fern and flowering plants, gives you complete privacy.
The Temple Garden Pavilion
The Temple Garden Pavilion has two bedrooms, both decorated in shades of tropical green and deep sea blue. In each room, a queen size bed is surrounded by a white mosquito net emphasizing the dramatic bed linens, cushions and curtains made from Balinese cotton. The lower bedroom extends out to the Temple garden, koi fish pond and orchid garden. The upper bedroom offers splendid views of the rice field and an overall view of the house and orchid garden below.
The bathroom on the ground floor is a striking bamboo and white pebble garden designed around the outdoor shower. Two porcelain bowls set on terrazzo counters and Italian lighting fixtures make this a stunning bathroom.
The Ricefield Pavilion
Behind the Lotus Pavilion, tucked away discretely behind the wall, is the Rice Field Pavilion. A two bedrooms structure decorated in shades of Irish green, Balinese red and black add dramatic flair to an already dramatic setting. Each bedroom opens out onto a different view from a small wooden deck, on one side the Temple Garden and on the other, the rice fields. Each bedroom has a queen sized bed canopied in white mosquito net and a beautiful Balinese Ikat design. All beds are carefully lit from inside by beautiful Italian lamps. A small table and chair for writing postcards or letters and a mirror complete this room. On the walls, are drawings and paintings by local artists.
The Artist Studio
At the north end of the swimming pool is the Artists studio. A two level pavilion designed by Tony Gwilliam. Built on water, it is an ideal place to take tea and admire the rice fields on your doorstep. A small table rises from the middle of the floor Japanese style, enabling you to put your feet in the water on hot afternoons. Upstairs is an office space with a magnificent view of the mountains in the distance.
Villa Pantulan Living & Entertainment Room
The Living Room is open to the rice fields and the lotus pond. The comfortable terrazzo seating is covered in cushions decorated in navy and gray Balinese cotton. A small table situated on the rice field side gives splendid views in the morning while taking breakfast, or for playing games on a hot afternoon. Beside the table, a beautiful Javanese marriage bull and cart looks as if it were arriving from the sawah. Dominating the center wall is a stunning painting by local Bali resident Wolfgang Widmoser.
Above the living room, the library contains a PC and printer for your convenience. As of now, there is no internet connection available at Villa Pantulan. However, there are many excellent connections in Ubud, ten minutes away. It is also a comfortable place to read in privacy.
The Entertainment Room includes a satellite television, DVD, music system and a Playstation. There are over 200 DVDs, as well as many CDs for your entertainment. Comfortably decorated in shades of green, the surround seating and futon mattress make it hard to leave this comfortable viewing room. The bathroom conveniently situated next to the entertainment room is also used as a pool bathroom. Like all the bathrooms at Villa Pantulan, it has its own exterior garden.
Villa Pantulan Kitchen and Dining Room
The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped to allow our staff to create memorable meals for your pleasure, offering both European and Balinese meals upon request. We also offer fine Australian wines, as well as a selection of beers and soft drinks.
The Dining Room is an extension of the kitchen dominated by a five meter merbau wood table. Seating sixteen people comfortably, it overlooks the reflecting pond on one side and the bamboo waterfall on the other.
Villa Pantulan Ground
At the south end of the pool is a massage/meditation bale. A single storey structure decorated with fine white cotton curtains for privacy. All massage therapists can be booked through our villa manager.
Beyond Villa Pantulan Pavilion is the swimming pool. Built for laps, it is twenty-five meters long with an infinity edge flowing towards the rice fields.
