Villa Anumay is tucked down a small road overlooking emerald green rice terraces fringed by coconut palms and tropical hardwoods. It features an open air living room and dining area, plus 3 large bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths with clean, uncluttered lines. The villa was professionally designed and decorated with unique architectural details, recessed lighting, fun furniture, and classic Hindu and Buddhist statuary. Every room is filled with natural light and sliding French doors invite you to explore the grounds accented with colorful flowers, stone sculptures, multiple water features, a covered lounge area and a refreshing swimming pool. The brand new kitchen with teak cabinets and granite counter tops is a joy to cook in boasting a large oven, 5 burner stove, full size refrigerator, brushed steel double sink, an assortment of appliances, and a pull out trash and recycling center. At night the villa transforms into a romantic hideaway with unusual lighting softly glowing both indoors and out. Blinking fireflies visiting from the rice fields enhance the magical light show.
Located 5 kilometers north of Ubud’s main road, you’re guaranteed solitude and privacy. A mere 10 minute drive delivers you to Ubud’s incredible array of shopping, tasty restaurants, bars, and multiple tourist sites such as the sacred monkey forest, temples, palaces, handicraft displays and traditional dances. If you don’t feel like driving or cooking there are several dining options within a 5-10 minute walk from the villa. Daily yoga classes and meditation are available at Ashram Munivara only 100 meters down the road. Occasionally you’ll catch the exotic sounds of distant temple music and puppet plays wafting across the rice paddies.
Ubud’s central location makes day tripping to other parts of the island a breeze. Visit beaches with crystalline water, sacred volcanoes, holy temples, coffee and chocolate plantations, and majestic waterfalls. Enjoy world famous surfing and scuba diving sites. Wherever you are on the island you’re sure to stumble upon traditional Hindu ceremonies. Locals playing gongs, flutes, drums and xylophones parade down the roads dressed in traditional religious garb of sarongs, head wraps, and sashes and flowers. Keep an eye out for the barong, a Hindu dragon costume worn by two people. Bali offers one of the most unique cultures in the world and Ubud is at the very heart of it all. I can help you book a car and driver for day trips which cost about 50 USD/day or I can arrange for a car rental for about 10-20 USD/day. I highly recommend a car and driver over trying to drive on your own. The roads are narrow and congested and there are practically no rules of the road followed!
Staying at Villa Anumay with my planning assistance could make this one of the most relaxing and exotic vacations of your life.

I am hoping to do a simultaneous home swap with a villa in Tuscany for about three weeks in September. I have two dogs and two cats who are all easy to care for. I am happy to care for any pets you have. I love animals! You are welcome to stay at my house for longer than three weeks for free. I enjoy meeting new people from other parts of the world.
