The Pala Ubud - Villa Agung

The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.

Sleeps 10 Adults

The crown jewel of the swanky and luxurious Ubud estate, The Pala, Villa Agung enthrals you the moment you step into its porch via ornately carved wooden gates. A courtyard with lawned gardens along a paved path leads you to the single-pavilion villa, beckoning you to come through its stunning gold, green and red traditional entranceway.

Villa Agung is a sight to behold, furnished lovingly with family heirlooms and priceless artefacts such as furniture gifted to the family by the former President of Indonesia and rare art. Marvel at pieces such as a giant sailboat made entirely with cloves, or a statue of a lady made with coins. Large living areas on two floors allow your group to spread out, and though the villa offers five lavish bedrooms to accommodate up to 10 guests, it never feels crowded.

With four bedrooms furnished with king-sized beds and one with twin beds spread across both levels, there’s plenty of space for everybody. Large windows beckon you towards the balcony which overlooks the generously sized pool and magnificent garden, a great venue for weddings and events. The lower level of the pavilion, which houses an open-plan living and dining area leading onto the garden and pool, is reached via very gentle and comfortable steps, a thoughtful touch to allow multi-generational living.

Meals are a delight in the estate’s Hura Restaurant but if you prefer to whip up a snack for the kids, a fully equipped kitchen in the villa is available for your use. It leads into an industrial kitchen that can be used during events, making catering a breeze for your celebrations.

Ask the Estate Manager to arrange a walk through the fruit and vegetable garden to show your kids how food grows on farms, or book a paddy experience where your family can be part of the planting or harvesting of rice. To relax, the riverside lawn down a series of steps built into the hill is perfect for yoga or spa therapies and offers a great picnic spot too. All of Ubud’s charms are within easy reach, with the palace merely 6 km from the estate. The airport is 41 km away, and the journey takes up to 1.5 hours.

Location

The Pala is built into half a hillside, going down to hug a rushing river meandering through the lush jungles. The estate’s intrigue is heightened by its hidden location, allowing you to be one with nature, while the charms of Ubud are mere minutes away.

The Pala is located 6km from the centre of Ubud where you will find the Ubud Palace, the venue for daily dance performances that you must not miss. The 15-minute journey into town gives you a short tour of Ubud’s lush hillsides, with many waterfalls, hiking trails and picturesque spots nearby.

Walking distance from The Pala, you will discover an ancient, 11th-century temple called Goa Garba, accessed via a steep flight of stairs, and a sacred water spring. A quiet spot, far from the tourist trail, you feel like you’re on the set of an Indiana Jones movie amidst these photogenic ruins.

More information for Things to do

The staff lives locally and offers a wealth of information on what to do in and around The Pala. Though Ubud beckons with all its charms, you will be hard pressed to leave the estate, given how many exciting activities are lined up for you at The Pala. Here’s a glimpse:

Activities at the estate

  • Get acquainted with nature and book a Rice Farming Experience. During harvest time, you can help harvest the crop or else plant rice crops under close supervision of the paddy in-charge.
  • River activities such as fishing, canoeing, tubing and more allow your family to have a whale of a time in the great outdoors.
  • Steps take you down to the riverside lawn, the perfect spot for picnics or bonfire evenings which can be set-up on request.
  • Take part in a Balinese Cooking Class wherein you can learn how to make some of your favourite local dishes.
  • Better still, book a Vegetable and Fruit Farm Tour within the estate. Pluck your own fruits and vegetables and then use these ingredients to cook up some amazing dishes.
  • Kids’ Activities such as feeding chickens, ducks and fish can be arranged. Children love to engage with farm animals and they will have a wonderful time interacting with the estate pets.
  • Book a Balinese Offering Making session and transform leaves, flowers and fruits from the garden into delightful offering baskets for the local temples.
  • Water Purification Ritual at the nearby Goa Garba Shrine can be a part of your wellness activities or simply one you partake in out of curiosity.

Outside the estate

  • Escape the afternoon heat and watch the antics of the long-tailed macaque monkeys at Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest. And mind your belongings, these monkeys are skilled pick-pockets!
  • No visit to Ubud is complete without seeing at least one traditional dance performance. This is a great opportunity to see classic Hindu legends being told through dancers in colourful, Balinese costumes.
  • The many spas and meditation centres of Ubud offer a wide range of eastern and western therapies from reiki to acupuncture, and yoga to herbal scrubs.
  • In March, Ubud hosts the Bali Spirit Festival of Yoga, Dance and World Music. Five days of yoga and music workshops, three nights of inspirational world music.
  • See some of Bali’s best scenery on a daytrip to volcanic Mount Batur. The largest crater lake in Bali fills part of Mount Batur’s caldera while small villages cling to the rim. The views from the nearby village of Penelokan are well worth making the trip.
  • Soar above the spectacular southern coastline of Bali on a paraglider. Paragliding courses, tandem and solo flights are available.
  • Tour the Karangasem Palace at Amlapura, visited for its unique combination of Balinese, Chinese and European architecture.
