Description of the Ubud vacation villa rental
Padi Menari is tucked in a serene nook of Tegallalang padi fields, a mere 7km north of Ubud. Consisting of 3 bedrooms with ensuite bath, all bedrooms come with air-conditioning, king-sized double beds with the finest quality bedding and linen. A private pool with lush tropical garden overlooks a spectacular view of padi fields and coconut groves beyond. Price is inclusive of breakfast, daily housekeeping, fresh water and night security.

Padi Menari means Dancing Rice Stalk in Bahasa Indonesia. This very intimate property is on 600 square meter split-level land with the main villa sitting on the lower level of the rice terrace. The main villa is approximately 250 square meters with an ensuite bedroom on each floor, providing privacy and intimacy for individual couples whilst the living hall, pool and garden encourages relaxed, social interaction. Both bedrooms look out onto the lush landscaped gardens and paddy fields beyond. A third room is located in a separate building on the upper ground level and is known as The Studio.

The villa is located in the windy rice field and is very open. We share the land with the indigenous creatures of Bali such as white herons, birds, frogs, tokeks (giant gecko), field mice, spiders, green snakes and all sorts of insects. For the most part, they avoid humans but occasionally you may encounter a curious creature seeking refuge. Mostly harmless, may be pesky at times but hey, this is nature. Pest-control and fumigation treatments on ants, mosquitoes and bugs are done occasionally but we prefer to keep it to the minimum to minimise the use of chemicals.

Overlooking the banks of the paddy fields is a private 4m x 8m plunge pool that will tantalise you to take a dip after a hot day out. You will be tempted to spend your mornings lazing around watching the farmers at work and balmy evenings relaxing with a cool drink in hand so don't attempt to cram your days with activities.

Padi Menari is a retreat from the world that will return you to yourself. It is a realm that will evoke your emotions and sensations, come with an open mind to embrace all possibilities.Whether you are a group of friends seeking to be free and adventurous, a mature family coming together to reconnect and rejuvenate or a couple reigniting passions and romance, be prepared to indulge in liberating yourself from all inhibitions. It is where artists, yogis and weary city dwellers find solace and peace with nature and oneself. And it is where we hope you will too.

Note: Padi Menari is very much an adult's getaway and is not child friendly due to it's open concept and multi-levels.

Guest Access
You will have private use of the entire Villa. Additional services such as cook to prepare meals, massages, laundry, driver & guide, sightseeing tours, cultural shows, cooking classes, etc. can be arranged at uninflated market rate.

We have wireless internet which works well most of the time. However, internet reliability is still a frustrating problem in Bali and is at the mercy of weather conditions and power outages. Fiber optic lines are slowly being laid and has come to Ubud town. We are praying that the infrastructure will be coming to our village area soon but in the meantime, you may experience slowness or downtime occasionally. A good alternative is to get a prepaid local number with data line so you can be connected even when on the go!

Our philosophy of providing equal employment opportunity to the local villagers means that the staff are not formally trained in the hospitality industry and may be lacking in ability compared to the more qualified staff at other commercial establishments. Our housekeeper and villa attendant are from a village nearby and can be quite shy. For what they may lack in skill, they make up for in honesty and enthusiasm. They are still learning to improve their communication and English skills and we hope you will not find them lacking too much. They are eager to please and will try their best to meet your needs so please do communicate with them on whatever you need.

Area Information
The villa is far removed from the touristy, polluted environment of town. It is located in a quiet area of Tegalalang with lush rice fields all around. There are a few other houses nearby, an Ashram and a Yoga retreat 500 meters away and several small food stalls within walking distance, making it not too remote.
