Villa Wastra is an extremely beautiful experience. It is accessed by a short drive through the jungle from one of the main roads leading out of Ubud. Don't be alarmed the Villa driver is terrific and knows the area well.
The Villa is quiet and secluded, however you need not want for anything if you are searching for rest and relaxation as it is positioned on the edge of a ravine overlooking lush, tropical vegetation. Walks from the villa into the surrounding farmland and jungle to see local Balanese & the huge Banyan tree are a must.
Each room is decorated in a modern Balinese style, the rooms been large and leading from either a sitting room or open planned kitchen where you may prepare your own meals if you wish. The beds are very comfortable and there are ample pillows and comfortors.
Breakfast is served daily in the open airs where you will get to meet other guests and talk with the innkeepers who are genuinely lovely and friendly and also knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast and also dinner is offered by the Villa. It is excellent cusine, often with local delicacies to try if you so wish.
Go for a dreamy tropical rest to Villa Wastra. Don't stay here if you are looking for non-stop action as you will largely need to entertain yourself or have trips planned in the surrounding Ubud area.
I highly recommend Villa Wastra for an older couple, honeymooners or those wishing to escape the rush of other commercialised areas of Bali.
