    Everything met our requirements. The owner was very friendly and helped us with booking things we wanted to do.
  • Jerome
    Absolutely stunning Villa. The Host is such a cool guy. We were lucky to even get to know the parents of the host. Such kind people. The room was so big and nicely decorated and the bathroom was just WOW! We could order our breakfast the evening...

  • Do you not accept children at all or just the dates I have chosen? You have been recommended to me and my children will be 15 & 16 so not young

    thanks for your question ... We have a duty of care to our guests #1, & that reason our villa is not well catered to young children because of the access to ledges with high drops to lower levels, no pool fences, long sharp edging of terrace tiles.

  • Hi, do you have Air Con?

    Yes, we have big portable style Air Con machine, that we put in the bedroom area. Plus there are 2 ceiling fans - bed & living. Trust us though, with cool breeze coming up the valley, it is not hot. Ubud (north side) is much cooler than you think.
    Answered on 27 April 2022
  • Hi, is the private pool completely covered and suitable for muslims?

    No sorry ... this is only island in the most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia, where the island of Bali is Hindu. So the market here is not set up for your request I am sorry to say.

The host is a music lover, and lover of people. Speaks perfect English. You may see the owner from time to time, but generally the villa is managed by wonderful Balinese staff.

Property information

Villa Merdu has 2 areas for rental: (1) Jungle Villa, which is a honeymoon style suite with plunge pool and private access via card reader security. Total size is 100sq/m. This villa is a separate free standing villa away from the main villa. (2) Main Villa, has 3 bedrooms, with large outdoor pool, overlooking a jungle style valley. Essentially we have set the villa up as a home stay. For rental are: 2 x Superior King (60sq/m), and 1 x Master Suite (78 sq/m which inc. it's own kitchenette with small fridge & sink ). If renting any of these 3 rooms in the main villa, you have full use of the villa, main kitchen, living areas, pool etc. Also, each room in the main villa has a desk; a water dispenser with clean water; smart TV; walk in robe; shower & bath, A/C; ceiling fans. *NB: this is a 'shared villa'.

Neighbourhood information

Junjungan Village is a well known village of Ubud.....proud of their ceremonies, tradition and they host weekly Kecak dancing at the village temple (on Monday nights). This is a quiet, peaceful village, with lush surrounds & cooler temperatures than downtown Ubud. The villa itself is on the north side of Ubud, approx 4.5km from the main road - Jalan Ray Ubud. We are on road named - Jalan Tirta Tawar. We do suggest renting a scooter, but there are local drivers that can transfer you into Ubud if/when you need. For reference the villa is aprrox 5km from the Palace (corner of Monkey Forest Rd & Jalan Suweta), and 7km from the Monkey Forest Sanctuary.
