What Our Guests Say
“We are 3 couples from Canada and we spent a week in this lovely villa. Breakfasts were wonderful”
The view from the upper bedroom was spectacular as we were surrounded by rice paddies. We cooled off in the pool after long days of walking and sightseeing. Restaurants were within walking distance to town about 15 min. down the road from the villa. Wayan and ketut take very good care of any of your needs. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone interested in staying in Ubud.

“Gorgeous villa amongst the rice fields”
Satori Villas exceeded our expectations. We arrived at around midnight and were still greeted by the lovely Komang who lives at the property. We stayed in Villa Siri which is a one bedroom, double story villa with a balcony overlooking the rice fields and a private pool. Every morning someone comes to cook a delicious breakfast in your kitchen. It is situated fairly close to Ubud centre (approx. 15-20min walk). The accommodation is on a steep hill which may be tough to walk for some guests however, they actually provide you with a mobile phone and you can call if you need a ride up or down on the scooter. Totally worth the hill for the beautiful location amongst the rice fields. Love this place and will certainly be back.

“The perfect getaway and amazing location in Ubud”
This was my second trip to the Ubud area of Bali. From past experience I knew I wanted to be able to walk into town, plus I want to be able to get out of the hustle and bustle, of Ubud and in a more calming area with views of rice patties.
Villa Satori met this wish, and then some. This villa was the perfect Ubud get away for my group (5 guys). The property is amazing, a show stopper, the main house and the guesthouse are well taken care of, with a nice decor. Pool is great for a dip at the start or end of your day. We started just about every day with the staff making a wonderful breakfast, while we sat out on the terrace listening to the roosters, frogs and ducks starting their day. The house, grounds and staff, nothing but positive.
They are also willing to go the extra mile for you. Leaving there was a misunderstanding with the driver I arrange to drive us back to Seminyak, they stepped in and arranged a new driver, and got our luggage into the van faster than you can blink an eye (mind you their moving the luggage down the hill on a scooter). I highly recommend Villa Satori in Ubud.

“Great paradise in the rice fields”
The location was beautiful. While a bit far away, it was only a challenging luggage transfer. Other than that we enjoyed the walks through the rice fields. Staff was unbelievably accommodating. We are high maintenance guests and they made adjustments as necessary. We had staff come to villa almost daily for services. Everyone was very punctual and helpful. Would 100 Percent stay again and recommend to others.

“Can’t wait to go back”
I stayed a week at Villa Satori and loved every minute. Just sitting looking out to the rice paddies is so relaxing and meditative. The location was perfect. Just a walk into town to shop and get a massage, but actually I never wanted to leave. The pool is the perfect temperature and I never needed air conditioning as the inside outside living was so easy breezy. The Villa has all that one needs and more. The staff took care of me so very well. If it rained the rain shades were put down, and then in 20 minutes when the rain stopped the shades were put magically back up again. The breakfasts were delightful and so healthy. Be sure to try Wayan’s papaya smoothy.
The Villa is brand new and yet has the old Bali feel with Balinese art and antiques throughout. My particular favorite touch is the private outside shower in the guest house. Looking through the bamboo at the green, green rice paddies after a swim was just the best. Can’t wait to go back to Villa Satori. I’ve told all my friends and they are ready to go. The owner, Kasey, was very helpful and answered all my questions and helped make my 3rd trip to Bali my favorite.
“Great home for an extended stay”
My wife and I have stayed here twice in the past 6 months, and enjoyed it immensely each time. We will definitely be returning. We looked at (physically visited) no less than 6 villas before choosing Santana for an extended stay, and there was really no contest. Of the important things we wanted, *ALL* were there at Santana. First, great open layout with large inside living room which opened to an outside sitting area and thence to the pool. Perfect indoor /outdoor living! The large kitchen and dining area also opened to the pool. Second, three large bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bath for guests or family. Plenty of privacy areas for sitting inside or outside. Third, expansive ricefield views from the two (actually, three) decks with good breezes, especially at the second story. Fourth, dedicated staff. Several of the villas we visited were serviced by a family member of the owners. We found that in this situation, we were often competing with the private life of the staff, and sometimes involved in the family dynamics between the owners and the staff (think: brother-in-law). Kasey and Rico own five or six villas all in the same area, so their staff is hired, not borrowed. Fifth, quiet and very peaceful but with a short walk or scooter ride to town. Sixth, no western exposure. That Indonesian sun is HOT in the afternoon! Seventh, it is homey. Several villas we saw were OK, but boring. Santana has nice art, including visual art, decorative pieces like dolls or puppets, and fine furniture, so it’s a home we would want to live in, rather than simply an adequate place to stay. All villas look GREAT on the internet. This one actually delivers.

The Villa is so beautiful, clean, well taken cared of with dedicated staff 24/7 who cook breakfast for you, will do marketing for you, & will do errands for you at your beck and call. It has a very relaxing atmosphere, calming and just very peaceful. We decided to rent the Villa for a year and use as a base while we go around different Islands in Indonesia to scuba dive and always look forward coming ” home ” to the Villa after weeks of being away from it.

“A perfect villa in a perfect spot in Ubud”
We (4 adults) stayed at Villa Satori for a week and what a pleasant experience that was! The location between the rice fields were gorgeous and being away from the town was just so much more relaxing. The Villa itself is beautifully decorated with everything you need. The swimming pool is a good size and you can easily spend the day just lazying around the pool and Villa. Wayan and Ketut are great and we got spoiled daily with a complementary breakfast and even had the pleasure of Wayan’s dinner one evening .Booking the villa was easy with Kasey responding promptly and she also included a very detailed guide to the villa which was so helpful. All the photo’s on the website is a true representation of how the villa looks but I suggest go and see for yourself, you wont be disappointed. Thanks again to everybody at Villa Satori for a perfect Balinese holiday.
“Oasis in the rice paddies!”
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in this lovely, peaceful home. It was very hot while we were there; the pool was the perfect cool down after venturing out to visit the local attractions. The location of the home in the rice fields above the hustle and bustle of Ubud was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the early mornings, watching the sun rise over the lovely scenery. The night time symphony of frogs and crickets was spectacular! We especially enjoyed the local flora and fauna; the photos do not do justice to the mature lush gardens, dripping with tropical plants and flowers. Many different birds and butterflies visit the garden throughout the day. The rhythm of life in the paddies has its own charm. The staff, Wayan and Ketut, were lovely and helped us learn a lot about the culture on our first trip to Bali. Kasey was great to deal with, providing a comprehensive welcome package with tons of helpful information. Our two week trip served as a wonderful introduction to the unique Balinese culture; we hope to return when we have more time to discover more of this amazing island and its gentle people.
