Villa Shinta Dewi Ubud rests on the edge of Tegallantang, a quiet village just north of Ubud. The villa looks towards a verdant wall of mature trees edging the ravine at the bottom of the garden. Life is unhurried in this peaceful rice-farming neighbourhood of Balinese families and traditional temples. Yet within a short walk are signs of more modern times ë_ a growing number of excellent warungs (local cafÕ©s) and even a batik studio. A few kilometres south, central Ubud beckons with museums, galleries, temples, boutiques, restaurants and spas.
Shinta Dewi Ubud has been tastefully decorated by its owners, who have chosen top-quality furnishings and finishings ë_ they holiday regularly at the villa themselves. The dÕ©cor takes inspiration from the archipelago, with a wealth of natural materials crafted by Baliës master artisans and a vibrant tropical colour palette that picks out the Flamboyant trees, bougainvillea and heliconia in the garden. The attention to detail is also admirable ë_everything from top-quality mattresses and linen in the bedrooms, multi-channel Sonos sound system in the living areas, and Champagne and Martini glasses in the chefës kitchen.
The friendly staff includes a chef and team of butlers to cater to their guestsë every whim, whether preparing sunset cocktails, a leisurely lunch or candle-lit barbecue (chosen from a reasonably priced menu), or arranging activities and excursions such as in-villa massages, batik classes and river rafting. Guests also enjoy a twice-daily shuttle to Ubud, where an array of restaurants, galleries, boutiques, spas and cultural attractions await them.
Shinta Dewi Ubud is normally booked as a four-bedroom villa, but for smaller groups thereës a three-bedroom option where the bedroom adjoining the living room can be converted to a TV room/study.
Those looking to experience the best of Bali with a dual-location break split between the green hills and terraces of Ubud and the surf and sand of the south coast can book a stay at Shinta Dewi Ubudës sister villa, four-bedroomed Shinta Dewi Seminyak.
