Sativa Villas Ubud
What We Love
- A peaceful villa with a private pool, amid lush greenery, with a host of perks includedFiring up the villa's barbecue pit for some delicious food after an evening dip in your private pool

- Heading to the Sativa Villas spa center for a well-deserved spa treatment
What To Know
- Villas come with all the touches of home: kitchen, dining area and living room
- Hang out on the day beds around your private plunge pool and garden
- WiFi can be spotty (but you're not here to be on your laptop)
The newly opened Sativa Villas sits pristine and hidden away by lush foliage in the heart of Ubud. Each spacious, luxurious villa is equipped with modern amenities, as well as a kitchen and dining area. Styled with chic, contemporary furnishings and large windows welcoming in bright sunshine, the villas offer an ambiance of calm and pure relaxation.
You’ll be in your own private tropical paradise, with each villa sitting in front of a beautiful pool and offering private gardens. Kept separate from other villas by towering hedges, these retreats allow you to luxuriate in private. Sativa Villas also has its own spa center and a much larger communal pool.
Staying at Sativa Villas also keeps you close to central Ubud. Just a five-minute drive away, past hills of paddy fields, the cultural center of Bali is perfect for getting to know the island better. Walk through the mystical monkey forest, try the famous “dirty duck” and “babi guling” – basically crispy duck and a pork-based rice dish – or take time to explore the treasure trove of cultural landmarks.
How to Get There
We had an amazing time me and my husband in Sativa Villas , rooms where always clean, staff were very friendly , nice , polite, and helpful. The prices as well were affordable and we hope that it won’t change because we definitely are thinking to comeback there .
We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Sativa. The staff and villas were beyond our expectations. We were overwhelmed with how beautiful and spacious our villas was. We not only felt safe but we felt at home immediately. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff worked with our complicated itinerary to make sure we had breakfast every day before heading out. We also enjoyed outdoor massages at the villa that were very affordable. The staff checked on us often and their hospitality will be sorely missed as it's not something we come across often in the US. We appreciated the staff so much we got a group photo with them before leaving.
The rooms were spotlessly cleaned and it wasn't uncommon for us to come back to incense burning in our rooms-- a nice touch.
We did have a few mishaps in our villa with the air conditioner but they all were promptly addressed.
The villas are surrounded by private residences as well as nice hotels so it's worth taking a walk to explore. The roads are not very 'walkable' though so you'll most likely want to take a taxi into the heart of Ubud for most things (less than a 10 minute drive).
I would HIGHLY recommend Sativa to anyone traveling to Ubud. It is just far enough outside of the bustle of Ubud to be quiet, yet close enough to justify going into town every day of your stay.
The staff at Sativa are simply out of this world! My friends and I were very well taken care of throughout our 5 days stay. Being customer service staff ourselves, we definitely know how to differentiate genuine and good service.
Everyone of them remembered our names, and which villa we stayed in. Every day, they will greet us when they see us, check with us what our plan for the day is, and will suggest to us what to do and where to go.
Komang, who is the villa manager, is very prompt in all our questions even before we arrive. During our stay in Sativa, he would do his very best to ensure all our requests were being met. Nothing is too much of a trouble for him, from arrangement of yoga classes, massage in the villa, to floating breakfast basket in the pool. Komang and his team really made sure that everything is done to perfection.
Even during the night time, there were still enough staff on duty. Our night shift butlers, Made and Gusti, took very good care of us. One night, we had a frog who decided to drop by to visit our villa, and they came to our rescue immediately after we called them for help.
Even the housekeeping staff who were not as proficient in English as compared to the butlers and Komang, they were always seen smiling and trying their best to communicate to check on our needs. They did a fantastic job making sure our rooms are clean and tidy every day.
The villa is a short distance of about 10 mins drive away from Ubud centre. Shuttle service is also provided to and fro at certain timing. You get the convenience of being near town, yet it is quiet and private enough. If you are lucky, you can even see fireflies at night in the padi field nearby!
Sativa staff made us feel at home, and that we are one big family. We have stayed at many hotels overseas, many of which are big chains and 4 or 5 star hotels, but truly none can beat our wonderful experience at Sativa.
We will definitely return to Sativa again when we come back to Bali. And we highly recommend Sativa Villas Ubud to anyone who wants to have an enjoyable and welcoming stay in Ubud!
For the price that I paid to stay here, it was absolutely worth it! The staff were GREAT and ever so friendly and helpful! The villa was GORGEOUS!
If you are looking for a place to stay away from city life, quiet and calming green surroundings, this property has got it all!
There are also shuttles to and fro Ubud Central but hopefully you can add another trip say about 9 or 10 pm to pick up guests after dinner. That would make it perfect!
Loved our time at Sativa . Excellent accomodation and absolutely fantastic people. Thanks all of you for making our time with you so special. Nothing we requested was too much, the ride to the rice fields with Komang was awesome and the cooking lesson from Dayu was a great laugh
