Villa Puri Bayu, Ubud


Puri Bayu means ’the castle of the wind’. This is a perfect name for the villa as it is the ‘estuary’ of the fresh breeze from the famous Ayung River. It is difficult to capture the uniqueness, find the right words, to describe the beauty of this truly amazing estate! Puri Bayu is a dream come true for everyone who loves nature and enjoys tranquillity at its best. The only ‘noise’ one hears, relaxing in the spacious, open built living room enjoying the breathtaking view, is the consistent rush of the river stream, the singing of the birds and the smooth sound of the ‘floating’ bamboo leaves. This place indeed nurtures the soul.

Entering the compound of the villa, the atmosphere of tropical country living is stunning. Very tastefully, the owners have integrated beautiful accessories which they have collected travelling around the world.

The villa consists of two buildings: the main house and the guest house. The two buildings are the evidence of a high appreciation given by the owner to the Balinese culture. The organic nature of architectural materials and open verandas blends each pavilion into the site. The design and site planning are classic and timeless. The view from the terrace leads distant ‘sawah’ fields dotted with banana and coconut trees. 

The main house is a totally genuine Balinese style building with two stairs. Upstairs is the master bedroom with beautifully wooden polished floors. Besides the very specious, open living area, this room is the jewel of the villa. Sliding glass windows on three sides of the room provide a magnificent view of the Ayung River and the rice fields, and with the smooth breeze circulating, it makes one feel like sleeping outside in the nature!
The bedroom is equipped with a TV, DVD and en-suite bathroom.
The downstairs open-plan living room, with stunning views of the river, invites guests to relax and meditate. The various sitting areas are very comfortable and make visitors want to just stay around the house. Adjusted to the living room is the modern kitchen with an open breakfast bar. Also downstairs, there is an additional bathroom with a guest shower. 

The guest house is also a Balinese style building with single storey alang-alang (traditional Balinese) roof. It is located at the southern direction of the main house. As the size is smaller, it is fitted with a queen size bed and a beautiful, very unique, semi-open style bathroom with a ‘cave’ like shower that is separated from the bathtub. The guest house is equipped with a TV, DVD, refrigerator, mosquito net and fan.

The owner has a heightened sense of art and the pool is the evidence! This style cannot be found at any other villa in Bali! It seems that the guest is invited to swim in a river in the jungle of Bali! The poolside is just like a riverside without a piece of tile. The asymmetrical swimming-pool (approx. 11 m x 5 m) is located between the main house and the guest house.


Puri Bayu lies approx. one hour north of the airport in Bali’s heartland. The villa belongs to the small, native village of Kedewatan, just about 6 kilometres outside Ubud, and is an ideal starting point for guests who want to explore and be inspired by the mysticism of the traditional Bali.
