LUXURY Villa Budi Million$ Ricefield Views in Ubud
Description from the owner
Welcome to Bali Harmony and Villa Budi. A beautiful luxury two bedroom villa set on the edge of a hugh rice paddy with simply the best views in Ubud. Endless rice fields, an amazing infinity pool and wonderful wrap around decks facing north to Mt Agung and Mt Batukaru will give you breathtaking sunsets and sunset views. It's a quiet contemplative place to unwind (unbelievably peaceful) yet only minutes from the cultural capital Ubud - welcome to paradise!
A stunning view over almost 270 degrees defines Villa Budi. About 4 meters above the rice fields almost due south and west to the mountains and terraces to the northeast, you'll live on the huge wrap-around outside decks and soak up Bali into your very bones.
Villa Budi is built in a work of tropical minimalist style with a soaring bamboo interior roof structure that is a work of art in itself. Granite and terrazzo for the uniqueness and comfort of cool stone. Designer bathrooms for each beautifully luxurious bedroom. Ceiling fans for additional tropical cooling and fully folding glass and louver doors to allow the outside in...and the inside out.
Villa Budi features a large entrance hall, indoor/outdoor dining and living areas with classical handmade furniture and a very comfortable sofa with casual seating. There's a large well equipped kitchen with granite counters and lots of storage.
The rear north-facing bedroom has a unique bed design that permits either a queen or two singles and a garden bathroom with spacious rain shower. The west facing master bedroom opens directly onto the private deck above the rice fields. Its garden bathroom has both a full tub and rain shower and a full ricefield view.
Awaken before dawn and watch the early light lift the mist over the ocean of rice and experience a Bali Sunrise right from your private deck with coffee in hand. Stay long enough and you'll experience the whole cycle of rice cultivation from planting to harvesting and the local religious festivals celebrating Bali's unique cultural heritage.
Your stay includes a fabulous daily cooked breakfast prepared in your villa each morning (for four) of delicious pancakes or eggs, fresh tropical fruit tea or coffee and juice to start your day. Our onsite staff will help with all of your needs from arranging tours and sightseeing, car or scooter rental, personal laundry and sight-seeing itineraries as well as giving you tips for the best shopping and massage in Ubud. A private chef can also be arranged to cook you traditional Indonesian cuisine right in the privacy of your own villa in your fully equipped kitchen. Or, if you would like to do it yourself, book a private cooking class. Our chef is very reasonable and an amazing cook!
The villa has free hi speed wifi, 2 laptop sized safes, towel service, TV/DVD, parking, laundry (by arrangement), daily staff cleaning, sun loungers both on your private deck and along the pool deck. The gorgeous 15 meter infinity pool on the edge of the rice fields is only steps away from Budi through Harmony's lush landscaping. It has a shallow end for sitting and relaxing and a deeper end for doing laps. It's central to your villa yet large enough for privacy and absolutely beautiful to relax in when watching the sunset over the rice fields. We don't have pool hours so feel free to take a moonlight swim at 3 am! There's a covered yoga deck too for outdoor yoga in the shade.
We are located on the edge of a huge rice paddy in the village of Lodtunduh, about 2.5 km from Ubud and not far from the Monkey Forest and all the world class shopping on Hanuman Street and the cultural activities and restaurants in Ubud. We are very centrally located for all of Bali's sights and activities. Sanur beach is close (about 12 miles) and Seminyak. Kuta and Legian are easy drives for a whole day out with a different vibe. Or you can go up the hill to Kintamani and the hot springs at Lake Batur in an hour or so. Temples abound everywhere - from Besakih, the "Mother Temple" to Tanah Lot on the ocean (two of the most famous and holy) and we can organize tours to anywhere on the island and to Lombok too....
Your villa stay also includes free wifi, a laptop sized safe, fully equipped kitchen, towels, TV/DVD, parking, laundry (by arrangement), daily staff service, nighttime security staff, a yoga deck, sun loungers and the priceless ambiance of the Harmony lifestyle.
We can also arrange the following services:
• Yoga classes
• Car rental
• Car and driver
• Scooter rental
• Bike rental
• Laundry service (Extra charge)
• Tours and sightseeing
• Airport pickup and delivery (Extra charge)
Lodtunduh village is still mostly agricultural and its a fascinating place to experience real Bali village life which can't be found in the touristy areas. That's the lovely thing about our area of Lodtunduh village - there's a lot going on and it's a fun place to explore. After a day in busy bustling Ubud or on a temple tour or other activities, you need a place to relax. Villa Budi is the place! It's very peaceful and relaxing yet close to the "action".
Enjoy the wonderful cycle of the rice paddys at Villa Budi! Depending on when you visit you'll see the fascinating cycle of rice farming from preparing the fields, planting seedlings, thinning out the new rice, watching the ducks do their amazing dances, to harvesting, threshing and drying. It's one of the best things about visiting Harmony! The cycle is fascinating to watch no matter when you come!
While Harmony is a large enough property to ensure privacy for each Villa, it's small enough for community. Each of the villas at Harmony are unique and if Budi is occupied we can accommodate you at any of the other 4 villas.

Additional Location Information
Villa Budi at Bali Harmony Villas has the best location and views in all of Ubud, just moments from town but unbelievably quiet and peaceful. We are located in Lodtunduh on the edge of a huge rice paddy, about 2km south of Ubud Centre. Lodtunduh village is still mostly agricultural and its a fascinating place to experience real Bali village life which can't be found in the touristy areas. That's the lovely thing about our area of Lodtunduh village - there's a lot going on and it's a fun place to explore. After a day in busy bustling Ubud or on a temple tour or other activities, you need a place to relax. Villa Budi is the place! Situated on the very edge of the bluff overlooking the rice fields - our view is absolutely stunning! It's very peaceful and relaxing yet close to the "action".
Best of all we're very centrally located for all of Bali's sights and activities and in the best spot for seeing Bali. We're not far from the Monkey Forest and all the world class shopping on Hanuman Street and the cultural activities and restaurants in Ubud. We're also located on the south side of Ubud, so all of the south of the island is in easy reach without having to go through all the traffic of the city.
Sanur beach is close (about 12 miles) and Seminyak. Kuta and Legian are easy drives for a whole day out with a different vibe. Or you can go up the hill to Kintamani and the hot springs at Lake Batur in an hour or so. Temples abound everywhere - from Besakih, the "Mother Temple" to Tanah Lot on the ocean (two of the most famous and holy) and we can organize tours to anywhere on the island and to Lombok too....
You'll likely encounter ceremonies, celebrations, weddings, a cremation perhaps (a big event in Bali) and the many local temple festivals. But most of all you'll see (depending on when you visit) the fascinating cycle of rice farming from preparing the fields, planting seedlings, thinning out the new rice, watching the ducks do their amazing dances, to harvesting, threshing and drying.

The Harmony Villas are really top rate. All of the services provided were excellent. All of the staff was attentive without being over bearing. Breakfast was cooked each morning in the villa; cars were arranged for transport to town whenever we wanted. Harmony Villa is located about 5 minutes away from all of the action in Ubud. The location was peaceful and quiet, but excitement was right around the corner if that's what you wanted. The views of the rice fields were hypnotic. The infinity pool was refreshing. Loved everything and cannot wait to return!

We stayed here for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The villas and pool overlook a large expanse of green rice fields, trees, and tropical plants, where ducks and other birds make their home. The villas are tasteful, well-designed, and very comfortable.The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast, simple but delicious, includes a large plate of whatever fresh fruit is in season. It is difficult to believe Ubud is just a short drive away, convenient enough for trips into town but you feel like a world away when you are back at the villa. I can't recommend enough, a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
