Situated in a rice field river valley, this villa enjoys extreme peace and quiet, soothing sounds of water flowing through the river, rice fields, a lotus pond, and shared access to a swimming pool. Breakfast included & convenient location to Ubud!
The Monday villa at Surya Kembar Luxury Retreat villas is one of seven stunning suites in our Indra Loka ("heavenly paradise"). Guests enjoy a private suite with a king sized bed (can also be split into two twin beds) and a private bathroom with luxury amenities. Breakfast is included and Surya Kembar also offers a full menu for lunch and dinner. The Monday villa is situated on the east side of a large shared swimming pool, and because it is situated in our rice field river valley, guests can relax to the sounds of flowing water and birds without the sounds of motor bikes and traffic. The villa is situated just minutes from Ubud in the quiet village of Kumbuh. Airport transfers and transportation to other destinations are readily available. This is certainly a honeymoon destination.
Surya Kembar villas has a 24-hour staff to accommodate your every need. The owner, Oka, is also often on the premises and is happy to inform guests about Balinese culture and activities.
The villa is located amongst rice paddies on a village road in a quiet setting, yet is only a few minutes drive from the cultural center of Ubud. You can also take your time and walk into town to really get a sense of the area and the daily life of the Balinese. The villa's position to the south of Ubud makes it easy to take day trips to the beaches in Sanur, Seminyak, or Kuta without any of the traffic of town. Each day the local priest’s wife places offerings in and around the property to bring a good spirit and great smells to the area. The local banjar (community meeting place) is just a short walk down the road, and one can sometimes hear the faint sounds of the village gamelan practicing as the sun sets. It is magical! Many of my family and friends are mask-makers, wood carvers, musicians and dancers, and I am happy to introduce those wishing to learn some of the Balinese arts.
The property shares a parking area and fully trained team staff with three other villas on site. The price includes daily maid service, linens and towels, wireless internet, cable television, and daily breakfast.
Airport transfer, driver to other attractions, massage, private yoga classes, traditional Balinese meals (made by the most renowned cook in the village, my mom!), laundry, rental cellphone, rental motorbike, and babysitting can be arranged for an additional fee.
Babycots/cribs and car seats also available for no charge.
Being Balinese myself, I am always open to speak with guests about Bali's rich culture and religion, and can offer tips about unique things to see and do. The Ubud area offers a number of great performances, the monkey forest, and exquisite temples, and I am happy to inform guests of authentic ceremonies and celebrations happening during their stay.
Please send us any inquiries you may have. We are happy to cater to all guests' needs in order to make your stay in Bali truly remarkable.
Guests have access to the pool, rice fields, common areas, and our yoga shala. Private, semi-private, and group yoga classes can be arranged by request.

Hi! My name is Oka and I am a villa designer and artist from Bali, Indonesia. For many years I travelled around America and the Carribean working on cruise ships, but now I have settled back home in Bali with my wife Dayu and my son Gustu. As a young boy I was a woodcarver and pottery designer and have since combined my interests in art and hospitality to design unique villas around Bali. My family is also of the Brahman, priestly caste in Bali, and I grew up learning about all of the unique and intricate aspects of Balinese culture, religion, and art from my father. In addition to being passionate about creating unique villas and art, I am also passionate about sharing information about my home-- the island of the gods-- Bali. I was once hired to do a Canadian National Geographic-like program called Departure indonesia season 3- Ring of fire and Departure indonesia season 3- A home away. You can look me up in these films!
I can't wait to share with you! -Oka
