About our home

Our beautiful tropical home is located in Ubud, Bali's cultural and spiritual heart. Serene, private and secure, it enjoys a glorious garden setting only five minute's walk to Ubud's restaurants, boutiques, and yoga centres, yet worlds away from the bustle of the main streets.

There's an open living area with seating, dining area and well equipped kitchen; air-conditioned master bedroom and ensuite bathroom opening onto a private walled garden with yoga platform and fish pond; and a guest room with indoor/outdoor bathroom which we use as a media room; it has a TV and DVD player and blu-tooth speaker. Within the garden is a joglo (traditional Javanese teakwood building) containing a third bedroom and bathroom.

The infinity swimming pool is set in delightful tropical gardens shaded by palms, frangipanis and bursting with heliconia and hibiscus blooms. There are two loungers and a parasol on the reclaimed ironwood deck, as well as an all-weather rattan breakfast table and four armchairs.

The villa comes with delightful staff who take care of the housekeeping, gardening and pool cleaning. Wayan will shop for provisions (on your account) and make a beautiful tropical breakfast for you – her banana pancakes are legendary. For a modest fee she will also cook dinner for you (everything from a simple meal to a multi-course Indonesian buffet); many of our guests have commented that her food is the best they tasted in Indonesia! We can organise a massage for you in the villa, and also introduce you to a reliable and charming driver for airport pick-up and fascinating day trips.

Please note, for points swaps or swaps with places where there is no staff, there is a charge of US$20 a night, payable when you arrive.

This really is a delightfully hidden part of Ubud - even long-term residents are surprised to find such a tranquil garden villa so close to the centre, with its many restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries! There's so much going on in Ubud. As Bali's holistic wellbeing centre, it offers lots of yoga classes, spiritually focused and personal development courses, healers and therapists. As the island's cultural centre, there's a full schedule of temple ceremonies, gallery opening, art and dance classes and cookery schools.

We're open to swaps anywhere in the world, and would love to hear from you. You are welcome to message me on tamanamidabali@gmail.com to chat first before confirming a swap.
