Two Water palaces: Tirta Ganga and Taman Ujung in Amplapura area
Tirta Ganga (Water of the Ganges) is the site of a holy temple, some great water features and some of the best view of the rice fields. Nice place to stop for around one hour or so.
Taman Ujung – the last king of Karangasem built this grand water palace, but it was damaged by earthquake. A part of old palace is surrounded by ponds and terraces.

First of all I appreciated owners quick responses to my e-mails and in answering my questions before arriving. I also liked that both of them were always available during our stay to help us and guide us to the places we should visit. The villa is absolutely beautiful and well designed. It was nice there were items available for us to rent such as snorkel gear and a scooter. The massages were also nice. The staff did a great job in cleaning and cooking for us. The meals were always fresh and delicious! We'll sure recommend this place to our friends!

We stayed at this Beautiful villa in the Tembok area for 1 week in June 2013. It was a very relaxing and peaceful week. Our group consisted of 3 x adults and 1 x 10 month old.
This property is a fair distance from any major supermarket so if you like particular food and drinks stock up before you get there.
We pre paid for the 3 meals a day which were nice and the sizes were very generous. We also ate a few times at the resort next door which was very handy.
The villa its self is extremely nice, 2 big bedrooms with 2 big bathrooms, both bedrooms were big enough to have a porta cot in the room as well with alot of room spare. The lounge room / Kitchen was also a great size with plenty of room for the 10month old to crawl around. The whole villa was very clean and was cleaned everyday. The pool was great, only issue was with little kids is that there was no shade in the pool in the middle of the day.
The villa has a slight ant problem, the bin had to put outside as over night if there was any food in the bin there was a stream of ants to it, also just a lot of random bull ant looking ants inside which would be such a big deal except one of the adults in our group is allergic to bull ants, but nothing that a can of bug spray on hand couldnt fix.
Also overnight if you are in the bedroom that isnt on the beach side you do get a bit of road noise.
Over all i would highly recommend this Villa to anyone to stay at. There was nothing that the owner/staff couldnt organise or help with while we were there and were always so happy and willing to help!!!
We had a amazing week there!!!

Our stay started 22nd October 2012. Just two adults 50 yrs of age. We arrived at midnight via a chauffer driven car from the airport. We were glad it was at night as it is a good 2.5 - 3 hour trip. Our driver although very good seemed keen to get home. Or so we thought. Apparently this is how everyone drive is Bali. As long as you have a horn that works all is good. Three cars and often a scooter take up the road which usually would accomodate a very slim one lane each way.
The Villa is truely a magical place...The moment we entered the front wooden doors it opens up to lush green gardens, lawn and a huge fruit tree that has the richest smelling fruit you could ever imagine. You actually get used to the smell.
We had prepaid for all of our meals, 3 x daily. Ilou is the most amazing caterer. Eggs, fresh fruit, fresh bread, cereal, banana pancakes for breakfast. She will provide you with what ever you feel like. Lunch was usally a salad or soup.. Dont be fooled, they were huge.. So fresh and again served with fresh bread, cheese and fruit. We asked Ilou to prepare a Balinise dish for us each night. Truely amazing along with a dessert. Nothing was too much effort.
A daily 1hr massage costing $15 us is not to be missed. The airconditioners cool down the bedrooms so you get a great sleep each night. The beds are very firm but we were both able to sleep with no problems.
Snorkeling is just a few meters away as it the use of the kayaks. The Bali Seas is at your doorstep and is the same temperature as the air temperature.
Trip in an airconditioned car are available daily with a bit of notice. You can be taken to the Kings Palace or Water Palaces, Shopping, Local markets or the Rice fields.
If I wasnt so in love with this place and want to tell every one about it It would be our secret holiday place.
Apart from not having a few basic things availabe at the villa, like a bottle opener or matches for the candles, it is a superb holiday spot.
“So peaceful and relaxing! Wonderfull place to stay!”

The discription and pictures do not express how homey and wonderful this Villa truly is! The minute we walked into the house, we felt right at home. Every morning, we watched the ocean and had the best massages ever. Our stress went away instantly and we felt very lucky to have found such a peaceful place. The staff took great care of us providing tasty and fresh meals! The owners of the villa gave us recommendations what place of interest we should see. We went to the local market, to the great Waterfalll, climbed the Volcano and did fantastic rafting! We also rented a boat for an hour to see the Island from the ocean - the view was awesome! We did great snorkling on the home reef, this was our first time and it was so excited!Thanks again anna and alex for your warm hospitality.
