Villa Santai is a taste of paradise nestled in the hills of Tenah Merah, Ubud. Its warm, friendly staff welcomes you into the Villa, immediately making you feel relaxed and at home. The food is delicious and cooked from local ingredients.
The location is breathtaking. The moment you enter the Villa, you will be impressed by the amazing view of the jungle and valley through the first floor. It is impossible not to take a moment and look around at the beautiful view. There is an infinity pool overlooking the valley, and sometimes you can spot monkeys in the trees. It's a perfect place to relax and unwind away from the activity of the city of Ubud. It is close enough that you can take a ride into town in their car, and they can pick you up as well. It's easy to coordinate with them. They also have great ideas for walks or treks to the river or through the jungle.
I love that it's a bit secluded, so you feel like you are really in a special place up in the hills. The nearby villages, rice fields and temples are beautiful too, and there really are not many tourists around, if any.
The rooms are spacious, with incredibly large closets and a porch that wraps around the villa, where you can read a book or watch the sunrise. The sunset is equally as impressive, and casts beautiful colors of pink and coral in the sky, that reflect onto the infinity pool. It's incredibly magical, incredibly relaxing, and amazingly luxurious. The staff adds to the warmth. I can't wait to go again.

We stayed for 3 nights at Villa Santai and would recommend to anyone that is looking for a truly enjoyable and special Villa. The villa itself it very well maintained and exceptionally decked out, it is very private although on 5 or 10 minutes to town and has the best view over the valley, all you hear is the river, birds and monkeys.
The outdoor living and pool is all open with views all around, the bedrooms have amazing views too, all looking over the valley and with small private balcony's in case you want to get away from the rest of you party.
One of the highlights is the staff, they are very caring and we decided not to order from the menu but as the chef to cook traditional food and what he wanted to, one of the best decisions as the food was the best of the whole holiday, and after the first night we decided to stay in every night for dinner.
This is not your commercial villa, it is more like a home and would recommend it to anyone that wants that experience and I am unable to come up with any negatives other than I wish I booked it for longer.

We were looking for a relaxing get away that would also provide a totally new experience. Villa Santi gave us a feeling of being in an exotic place with complete relaxation and great service. The staff anticipated our needs and met them almost without us noticing they were there. It was completely relaxing and peaceful. The villa is surrounded by jungle and we could often see monkeys. It was also close enough to the city to enjoy the arts and culture of the county. Staff was available to take us to the city - and they were even more helpful there. The staff knew where to go and how to help us communicate. This was the perfect vacation and met every expectation I had.

What a great experience! Nestled deep in the rice fields of Ubud. A fantastic location and a great staff. From the pick up at the airport, to the daily meals, nothing was less than perfect. The food was fantastic, the rooms, and living area were beatifully decorated and comfortable. I would highly recommend this villa. What a wonderful time, I can't wait to return.
