A holiday here includes
Set outside the peaceful hum of Ubud, Villa Alamanda is perched high on a jungle-clad hillside overlooking a ravine. This beautiful four-bedroom villa epitomises calm and tranquility and is the perfect retreat for those seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday within easy reach of Bali’s exotic cultural centre.
Carefully designed to harmonise with the environment, the villa combines traditional architecture and materials to create an enchanting tropical oasis. Villa Alamanda’s design complements its natural setting with alang-alang thatched roofs, wooden beams and polished floors featuring a large open-sided terrace to enjoy the balmy tropical climate. Air-conditioned king-size bedrooms with marble ensuite bathrooms provide the perfect respite from the heat along with a fully enclosed media room.
Alamanda’s gardens are beyond spectacular, with fragrant frangipanis, red heliconias and the bright-yellow alamanda (after which the villa is named) injecting colour against the rich green foliage of the surrounding jungle. The 11m x 8m infinity pool is perched above the ravine and features a relaxing poolside balé .
Villa Alamanda is a special place; part of a traditional wood-carvers’ village where guests can immerse themselves in the routines of daily Balinese life from elaborate Hindu ceremonies to children playing in the street. The villa’s location is convenient for accessing nearby attractions including Ubud, Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) and the UNESCO rice terraces of Tegallalang.
Fully staffed, including a fabulous in-house chef, guests need only focus on lazing by the pool, indulging in scrumptious home-cooked meals, being pampered with deluxe spa treatments, or simply admiring the views.

Surrounded by lush tropical rainforest, Villa Alamanda is located five kilometres from Ubud near the sleepy wood-carvers village of Tengkulak. This traditional village offers a fascinating insight into daily Balinese life including the colourful and hypnotic Hindu ceremonies.
While the villa enjoys a remote and quiet setting it is only a short drive to many of Bali’s tourist hot spots including the famous Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave), the UNESCO rice fields of Tegallalang, the Tirta Girtu water temple at Tampak Siring, and the Bali Marine and Safari Park.
The main attraction, though, has to be Ubud, Bali’s cultural heart, famed for its art, wood carving, jewellery, textiles, antiques, restaurants, markets and cultural performances – including the Kacek dance. Three hundred metres above sea level in the foothills of the central mountain range, Ubud offers a cooler, wetter climate making it perfect for rice farming.
Things to do
Your villa manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will be pleased to help with any tour or restaurant bookings. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.
In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- Ubud’s shops are filled with unique and beautiful crafts, art work, carvings, jewellery, and gifts to take back home. The sprawling, indoor Ubud Market caters mostly to tourists in search of cheap souvenirs. Be sure to haggle prices – negotiation is expected – or you may end up paying triple what something is worth.
- Ask your chef to escort you to the local produce market to buy fresh ingredients for an Indonesian cookery class back at the villa.
- Lush green rice fields still blanket much of the area around Ubud and can easily be reached on foot or bicycle. Do visit the UNESCO world heritage site at Tegallalang (13km) – the rice terraces will simply take your breath away.
- With scores of holistic medicine practitioners now living around Ubud, it is no surprise that so many spas and meditation centers have opened up. In town you will find all types of Eastern and Western therapies.
- A strange, natural phenomenon occurs each evening just north of Ubud in the village of Petulu (6.5km). Thousands of white herons arrive here around 6pm and prepare to roost for the night before flying off again in the morning. The birds first began coming here after a communist massacre in 1965 but no one is sure why they continue to return. Local lore holds that these are the souls of those that were killed. Such a predictable gathering of these large and beautiful birds is a spectacle not to be missed.
- No visit to Ubud is complete without seeing at least one traditional dance performance. Although the performances are very tourist-oriented, this is a great opportunity to see classic Hindu legends being told through dancers in colorful, traditional costumes. Ubud Palace is a popular place providing shows nightly. Or get the staff to arrange your own private dinner and dance at the villa.
- Just 1.5 kilometres from the villa lies one of the most sacred sites in Bali: Goa Gajah. Also known as the Elephant Cave, this Hindu site dates back to the 11th Century and is believed to have been home to Hindu priests. The site is still used for worship by locals so proper dress is required to enter.
- Two other very sacred places – Tirta Empul, the water temple at Tampak Siring and Gunung Kawi, an ancient archaeological temple complex of carved rock, are well worth a visit. Those wishing to bathe in the holy waters at Tirta Empul must dress appropriately (a sarong and sash can be hired on site).
- Kintamani in North Bali is home to Mount Batur and some of Bali’s most dramatic scenery. Mount Batur is an active volcano that regularly smolders and surprises visitors with minor eruptions.
- While Ubud is not the obvious location for a beach holiday, we do recommend a day trip to White Sand Beach just north of Candidasa: a back-in-time place with beautiful sand, rolling waves, and an assortment of beach huts serving traditional beach food cooked over coconut coals. Why not stop off at the Bali Marine Safari Park on the way – a great treat for the kids.
- Finally while you will be hard pressed to beat the cooking of your own private chef, Ubud has some of the best restaurants on the island. Try Mozaic for fine dining, Bebek Bengil for crispy duck, Bridges for a romantic meal overlooking the Campuan River and the Melting Wok for Laotian fare.

Joan E, United States, 10-Mar-2016 - 16-Mar-2016People have often told me that when you travel it is the people you meet that you will remember rather than the places. However with Villa Alamanda I'm convinced that it will be both. The zen-like tranquility of the house combine with the utter graciousness of the staff combine into An Experience that will not be quickly forgotten. Thank you for making us feel so special.
Shu Hui C, Taiwan, 04-Jan-2016 - 08-Jan-2016Thank you all for your amazing service. We had a great pleasant stay here. The food is awesome and beyond expectation! The best family trip ever.
Sarah M, Australia, 28-Dec-2015 - 04-Jan-2016Thank you for Made, Nyoman, Putri and all staff for THE most amazing stay. We have had the best family holiday ever. The staff, service, rooms & surrounding are just perfect. Thank you so much. Made and staff are the kindest people who did everything they could to ensure our stay was enjoyable as it could be - and it was. You are all wonderful, may your life be blessed. PS The food was INCREDIBLE.
Jamie V, United States, 02-Oct-2015 - 06-Oct-2015Fantastic stay! If you could bottle Heaven, this would be it.
Hilary Smith, Australia, 12-Apr-2015 - 18-Apr-2015We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda.The villa and the garden are beautiful. We loved the pool - the perfect place to relax after sightseeing and other activities. Apparently there is a TV room but we never needed it. While its not located in a typical Ubud padi field setting we did enjoy being in a village setting and out of the main tourist area. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, but not overly so. They made this the most relaxing family holiday we have ever had. The food was delicious.
Tiffany G, Egypt, 29-Sep-2014 - 02-Oct-2014Villa Alamanda is a very nice property, with spacious bedrooms and the pool area is lovely. The staff is excellent and we had a very enjoyable stay there. Note that there is no attached common sitting area, and that the pool area is removed from the house itself, down a level and around the corner. It is very lovely though. The staff is wonderful and Ibu Made prepares the best food.
Sue A, Australia, 27-Sep-2014 - 29-Sep-2014We loved staying at Villa Alamanda, everything was great. Very minor comments include one bedroom's aircon could have been a bit cooler, but it is being replaced early October and in our group we had an elderly person, so the bathrooms provided a bit of a challenge since the (lovely) showers were over deep baths with steps. We stayed as an extended family in Ubud for a wedding at another venue and Villa Alamanda was like a luxury home away from home, with all the attention and more of a resort, but we had it just to ourselves. The staff are amazing and the cook Ibu Made is incredible - the manager was really considerate and I would highly recommend this amazing place to anyone wishing for peace, quiet, attention, a wonderful pool and gardens and just an fabulous experience. Thanks very much to all.
Kim Stewart, Australia, 12-May-2014 - 15-May-2014A fantastic start to our first time in Bali. The villa lived up to our expectations and we would highly recommend this. The staff were fantastic and very attentive. The booking agent was extremely professional and organised. Highly recommended.
Chris Pearson, Australia, 30-Mar-2014 - 05-Apr-2014Highly recommended, peace, tranquility!
Julie Scott, Australia, 19-Mar-2014 - 25-Mar-2014This is our second visit to Alamanda and once again we had a fantastic time. Everything about this little gem is delightful. The personal yoga classes, spa treatments and massages, the wonderful cooking, the beautifully kept grounds and above all the STAFF. Without the staff it would be just another lovely villa. We were made to feel very special and cared for. We also love the fact the villa is outside of Ubud in a working village so we can soak up the sounds and atmosphere. Cant wait for an opportunity to return..
DEBRY Alain and Claire, Australia, 15-Feb-2014 - 01-Mar-2014Great location and outstanding service, including indonesian cooking and driving service. Our holiday has been magic.
Rouillot Michel, Singapore, 13-Dec-2013 - 19-Dec-2013We were 8(including 2 young children) from the same family and we had a wonderful time at the villa . The service was extremely good and all the staff was very nice with all of us and we enjoyed very much all the food prepare by Ibu Made. We would definitively recommend this villa to families or friends who wants to have a nice stay in Ubud area and we will certainly try to visit again this wonderful place
Correna H, Australia, 01-Nov-2013 - 10-Nov-2013Ibu Made and staff make this villa just the best place to stay that anyone could imagine. The location is excellent, just a few minutes drive into Ubud and sitting peacefully on the side of a hill. Very quiet, clean and relaxing place to stay. The pool is amazing and our children had a lot of fun swimming and playing in the water. Don't bother eating out as Ibu Made and her team are amazing cooks and will provide anything that you ask for. We are a group of 4 adults and 4 children and everyone's food needs were looked after. I highly recommend this villa for families.
Julie Scott, Australia, 14-Sep-2013 - 19-Sep-2013This villa is a little gem. Lovely grounds and welcoming rooms. The staff were wonderful and made us feel very special.. Nothing was too much trouble and we had everything we could wish for.. The location was great, not far from Ubud but not too close. Ultimately we were just happy to sit by the pool and be spoilt with daily spa treatments.. Just fabulous...
Carly V, Australia, 04-Sep-2013 - 11-Sep-2013Our stay at the villa was absolute luxury. The staff were brilliant, couldn't do enough for us, but also friendly and relaxed. They were fabulous with my 15 month old daughter Ella - the chef, Ibu Made, even watched her for a couple of hours one morning while my husband and I had massages. The food is divine. Many reviews mentioned the food and said we would not want to go out - given we had been to Bali before, and eaten out for every meal, I didn't really believe this. We ended up having dinner in more often than we went out - and the best meals we had in Bali were at the villa (and at the Bridges restaurant, where the food is excellent but pricey for Bali). The location outside of Ubud is not an issue, and the great facilities and large grounds and pool area are a real bonus. If you are in a group, I would highly recommend this villa.
Juliet M, Australia, 10-Jun-2013 - 16-Jun-2013Great place to spend a week in beautiful Bali - within the gorgeous village of Tengulak and only 15 - 20 mins away from the great shopping and restaurants of Ubud. We really enjoyed walking around the village, visiting the local school and temples. Can't recommend highly enough - all meals top quality, all staff were amazing (thank you Made & Ibu Made). We will be back.
timothy W, Australia, 08-May-2013 - 10-May-2013Villa Alamanda was wonderful. The setting is beautiful with a jungle backdrop. The pool area is particularly attractive and totally private. Bedrooms are tastefully presented in Balinese style and the dining area is under cover on the verandah overlooking the jungle. The staff are friendly and available when required, never intruding on your privacy. The food cooked by the chef is prepared with fresh ingredients sourced from the market daily and represented the best Indonesian food we experienced in Bali. We were a family of 7 meeting for a reunion and could not have asked for more. I would have no hesitation recommending this property for those seeking an alternative to boring generic hotels.
Cosme D, France, 04-Mar-2013 - 08-Mar-2013an oustanding stay with great services
CA, Australia, 21-Dec-2012 - 28-Dec-2012Villa Alamanda was great. The villa itself was beautiful, and the staff were amazing. Ibu Made's cooking was an absolute highlight of our trip to Bali.
Lori Pascoe, Philippines, 29-Sep-2012 - 02-Oct-2012Our stay at Villa Alamanda was a memorable one. I am proud of myself for discovering this oasis, on the outskirts of Ubud. Located in the heart of pure Bali, we were able to discover the rich culture of the island first hand whilst being accommodated in a surrounding of beauty and comfort at Villa Alamanda. Attention to detail everywhere. Many, many thanks.
Jane Wager, Philippines, 23-Sep-2012 - 28-Sep-2012We have arrived home recommending Villa Alamanda to friends, family and work mates as a great place to escape to. Nothing was too hard, we were organised without being intruded on. Everyone loved the pool for swimming and hanging out. As friends with teenagers there was privacy and communal space and we thought it was great to have a tv space that was comfortable but not prominant.
Patrick Rhedin, Sweden, 22-Feb-2012 - 25-Feb-2012We stayed at Villa Alamando for three nights before we went to Seminyak for a week there in another house. We regret that we didn't spend moredays in Ubud and Alamanda. The house was great , the location likewise and the staff was excellent more than excellent actually, we had tears in our eyes when we had to leave.
We have nothing but good things to say about Alamanda and can recommend it to anyone who likes to visit Bali.
CE, Australia, 16-Jan-2012 - 18-Jan-2012Really pleasant stay. Bedrooms were a great size, the air conditioning leaked in the master bedroom on the 2nd day but that was a minor thing. Bathrooms were lovely but baths were so big it would take forever to fill up given the water pressure. Would be good if there was a living space to watch TV/DVD that wasn't one of the bedrooms. The pool and surrounding area was the highlight. Stunning.
MN, Canada, 24-Dec-2011 - 31-Dec-2011Absolutely fabulous villa, exceeding our most optimistic hopes. All the staff, including the agents, were great - welcoming, helpful and friendly. Food in particular was absolutely fantastic. All round, could not have been better.
YD, Australia, 01-Nov-2011 - 05-Nov-2011This villa was a joy to stay in. Ibu Made and the team at the villa made our stay very special. Ask for Eddy the driver who took us everywhere we wanted. The whole staff went beyond the call of duty. We had a party at the villa during our stay and it was catered and decorated so beautifully. We would love to come back.
Faizal Kamal, Singapore, 28-Oct-2011 - 30-Oct-2011One of the best Villa in Ubud to stay. Very charming and serene place.. I enjoy the place very much. Will be one of those beautiful memories & experience I have in bali..
RS, Australia, 01-Oct-2011 - 07-Oct-2011We thorougly enjoyed our stay at Villa Alamanda and were disappointed it went so quickly! We loved the look and feel of the villa and the grounds. The grounds and the pool were so beautiful, we rarely left them. One of the biggest positives was the staff. Having the same set of staff consistently meant we felt we got to know them. Their level of attention to detail and their friendly attitude made us feel pampered and welcome. And of course Ibu Made's cooking!!! I'm afraid we worked her very hard, eating in every night because her cooking was so good! We would love to go back to Villa Alamanda when we can.
Suzanne Bourke, Australia, 22-Sep-2011 - 27-Sep-2011This villa was a fantastic holiday experience. We had room to spread out or be together as a family. Everything was spotless and the staff were exceptionally well trained and hospitable. I highly recommend this for a family mix of 8 people. We had 2 grannies, 2 babies, a teenager and 3 young parents and it was great. Edi was our driver for 10 hours per day and he was brilliant. The laundry was done daily (even ironed!!!) if we dropped clothes in the basket. It is a great rest for a mum.
DM, Germany, 20-Jul-2011 - 27-Jul-2011villa Alamanda is à lovely villa in à beautifull surrounding. everything you need is available in the house. The very friendly and profesional staf is always there to help you. Ibu Made is a very, very good cook. She always comes with ideas for à daytrip and suggestion for an outstanding meal. As on Bali, the temperature is always nice, so therefor you do not miss the absence of an indoor livingroom as we are used to in Europe. The driver takes you everywhere you want. it is no option to take a little stroll from the villa into the neighbourhood.
We would recommend this villa to everyone!
BI, Australia, 07-Jul-2011 - 13-Jul-2011Great Location, close to Ubud, but in the charm of the local village. Staff are fantastic. well recommended
IG, Australia, 02-Jul-2011 - 07-Jul-2011Good villa for dry season, and staff were excellent. Pool was fantastic and days around it were well serviced. Massage service was excellent and well priced.
HD, Australia, 24-Jun-2011 - 29-Jun-2011We were extremely pleased with the villa,grounds and facilities,although we really could not comment on the kitchen as we had no real need to go there as the staff looked after every need in that regard.In fact it was Made and her wonderful staff that made our stay so memorable.
Rod Barrett, Australia, 16-Jun-2011 - 21-Jun-2011lovely place to stay. The cook Ida was really great. Great place to relax but pity about the goat track to get to the villa. The middle floor bathroom is very tired and the floor drainage needs to be looked but overall we had a lovely time. Rod B
