Perfect Honeymoon Experience at Villa Kelusa

When we booked the wrong dates at our first hotel in Ubud and they could not accommodate us, we were given the option to stay at Villa Kelusa. Skeptical of doing a villa rental, since it was only my husband and I on our honeymoon, we ended up being thoroughly spoiled and treated like royalty by Wayan and his staff! The villa is located just outside of the bustle of Ubud town, so you can really relax and enjoy the ameneties (provided you aren't scurrying around trying to take everything this beautiful area has to offer!). The grounds are beautifully kept, and each villa has it's own private infinity pool looking out towards the rice terrace. There are two villas on the property, however at the time we were there, we were the only ones occupying the whole space, so we had access to both pools. The villas themselves are stunning, with ample closet space and very comfortable beds. There are common areas with televisions and lounging space as well. You can absolutely stretch out and make yourself at home here, rather than feel cramped in a small hotel room. The team went above and beyond to ensure our comfort - even arranging for a private, English speaking driver who drove us most days, and handling all of our restaurant and tour reservations. We loved our stay at Villa Kelusa, and look forward to staying here again!! Thank you Wayan!

Just as amazing the second time!

I cannot overstate how much we enjoyed our second stay at Villa Kelusa. The house, pool, grounds and view are still as spectacular as they were two years ago. Wayan and his staff still as friendly, and the food just as good if not better than we remembered it. We'll be back!

Excellent place to recommend

These two nights were just exceptional! We stayed at Villa Kelusa with the family and enjoyed every moment. The place is amazing, peaceful rice fields surroundings. Great staff and lovely dinner organized onsite if you prefer not to go back to Ubud down town ( a bit far away unfortunately). We will come back soon.

Perfection

From the moment we walked into Villa Kelusa it was perfection. Two separate villas with dining and entertainment area inbetween, allowed our large family to have our own space. The surrounding valley jungle and rice terraces are a haven to wildlife and the views are amazing. Wayan and his dedicated team created a relaxed and efficient feel where nothing was too much hassle. We had a wonderful stay and would love to return one day.

Description

lovely private villa in beautiful surrounding

The lovely and ultra-private Villa Kelusa is nestled in the Balinese foothills beneath the very small, traditional village of Kelusa. At jungle’s edge, atop a vast amphitheatre of rice paddies cascading down into the deep gorge of the holy Pakuseba River, Villa Kelusa commands a panoramic view of a distant ridge of nine ancient volcanoes. Sitting high on top of the ridge, Villa Kelusa creates a soothing grandstand from which to watch local farmers harvest rice; and the gorge is so vast that on most mornings, clouds and birds drift by below. While practically untouched by the modern world, Kelusa is also a surprisingly short drive up the hill from Ubud, a very large, bustling village which, with its world-renowned restaurants, dance performances, art galleries and nearby 5-star hotels, is considered the cultural centre of Bali.

Villa Kelusa blends together two properties, PONDOK SAPI (the Shed of the Cow) and PONDOK SURYA (Sunset House), which can be rented separately or together. All bedrooms, as well as living and dining areas, have breathtaking views. If you are seeking the real Bali, the enchanted Bali, the Bali so loved by musicologist Colin McPhee (author of “A House in Bali”), Charlie Chaplin, and the artists Antonio Blanco and Walter Spies...

PONDOK SAPI

Pondok Sapi, which means “pavilion of the cow” is named after the ubiquitous Balinese thatched sheds which dot the jungles and also shelter the farmers in their rice terraces. Pondok Sapi was designed as the private residence of a retired American writer and television journalist. Three separate buildings make up Pondok Sapi. Immediately to the North of Villa Kelusa’s entry gate rests the Main Pavilion, an open-air entertainment structure with breathtaking views of the Pakuseba Canyon. The Main Pavilion contains a gourmet kitchen, dining and living areas, full bathroom and an enclosed, air-conditioned media room that can be converted into a luxury bedroom.

The next building is the air-conditioned Glass House, a two-story glass-walled studio with a library and two spacious en-suite master bedrooms with king beds. The bottom suite can also be configured with two single beds. The doors and windows open completely to bring the surroundings inside. The Northernmost building is an open-air Pool Cabana with a private infinity pool and lounge area, with access to a large, landscaped lawn and rock garden. All buildings are perched atop a ridge, above tiled rice paddies that cascade down an enormous, steep ravine to the Pakuseba River and face West to maximize stunning sunset views over nine ancient volcanoes.

PONDOK SURYA

Pondok Surya, or Sunset House, rest to the South of the main entrance to Villa Kelusa. It was also designed with open, panoramic views of the rice paddies, jungle and mountains. The main floor is designed around a 20-meter infinity lap pool which runs through the centre of the house. An interior bridge carved from a single piece of ironwood connects the living and entertainment areas. Also on the main floor is an enclosed kitchen and beautifully-landscaped outdoor (but private) bathroom. In addition, there is an air-conditioned guest room that can be configured with a king bed or two single beds. Pondok Surya has a large, air-conditioned, second story in-suite master bedroom with a king bed and a wrap-around terrace. The sliding glass walls open up to bring the outside in. The master bath contains a massive custom bathtub, hand-carved from a single, giant tree, which looks out over the cascading rice fields.
