I’ve been travelling to Bali for years now and I am especially fond of the beautiful Ubud. This time we were looking for a different kind of accommodation: near the centre and also close to the beautiful surrounding nature. In Penestenan we’ve found a wonderful joglo villa, exactly what we’ve been looking for! Penestenan is a part of Ubud and it’s only a 15 minutes walk (or 5 minutes by motorbike) from the centre of Ubud. But nearby there are also amazing rice fields and overwhelming nature. The area is filled with a variety of tasty restaurants and cosy little cafes. We discovered a lovely breakfast cafe & bakery only a few minutes away from the joglo, the perfect place to start the day. In the evening we were surprised by the many places and choices to eat. From Indonesian food to fusion dishes, you can find it all there. And if you want to do some yoga or buy stuff in a health store, it’s all nearby.
The joglo villa itself is amazing. A brand new villa built under the roof of an authentic Javanese teak house. The woodcarvings are magnificent and completely different from the other houses we’ve stayed in. The living- and bedrooms are spacious and we loved the bathroom, which is partially open. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Outside there’s this beautiful garden and large swimming pool.
We loved the walks along the rice fields and enjoyed dining in the different restaurants with amazing views. Don’t forget to mention the owner who received us in perfect English and was willing to give us all the information needed. For us this joglo was love at first sight and this love will continue. We are sad to leave but surely we’ll be back.
