Bali Villas - Villa Pantulan

Situated 3 kilometers outside of Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali, Villa Pantulan is secluded in the quiet village of Lodtunduh.We are one hour from Ngurah Rai airport.

In the quiet, unspoiled village of Lodtunduh, three kilometers south of Ubud, Villa Pantulan overlooks verdant rice fields and Mount Batukaru. From the moment our gates are opened, you enter a world of enchantment, seclusion and tranquility, far from the noisy, crowded beach hotels and busy roads of Bali.

The open environment of Villa Pantulan is an ever-changing scene depending on the season. The rice fields glimmer in shades of green and brown, and at sunset, when the sun descends behind the tree line, the frogs and crickets begin their nightly symphony and the mountain air brings a cool breeze.

Villa Pantulan comprises four pavilions, an artists studio and a meditation/massage bale. All buildings have traditional alang alang roofs (thatched), wood and terrazzo floors. The five bedrooms, which sleep ten comfortably, have sliding louvered and glass doors that open up completely to allow the cool mountain air to circulate and all rooms have ceiling fans.

The villa is built around several water features including a reflecting pond, lily pond, swimming pool and a small bamboo forest waterfall. It is well suited for small weddings, a health/yoga retreat, or a corporate team seeking privacy and luxury. We take great pride in the beauty of our home and have furnished it with many exquisite works of art both modern and antique. Great care has been taken to provide our guests with as many amenities as possible. Beautiful Balinese cotton kimonos and slippers are available for your comfort and to take home as a souvenir of Villa Pantulan.

The Pantulan Pavilion includes a living room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, library, entertainment room and bathroom. All spaces are connected by a soaring alang alang roof and walkways to each separate pavilion offering panoramic views to the rest of the house and the rice fields beyond.

Our gourmet kitchen is fully equipped to allow our staff to create memorable meals for your pleasure, offering both European and Balinese meals upon request. We also offer fine Australian wines, as well as a selection of beers and soft drinks. Breakfast is included in your package.

The Dining Room
The dining room is an extension of the kitchen dominated by a five meter mirbau wood table. Seating sixteen people comfortably, it overlooks the reflecting pond on one side and the bamboo waterfall on the other.

The living room is open to the rice fields and the lotus pond. The comfortable terrazzo seating is covered in cushions decorated in navy and gray Balinese cotton. A small table situated on the rice field side gives splendid views in the morning while taking breakfast, or for playing games on a hot afternoon. Beside the table, a beautiful Javanese marriage bull and cart looks as if it were arriving from the sawah.. Dominating the center wall is a stunning painting by local Bali resident Wolfgang Widmoser

Above the living room, the library contains a PC and printer for your convenience. As of now, there is no internet connection available at Villa Pantulan. However, there are many excellent connections in Ubud, ten minutes away. It is also a comfortable place to read in privacy.

Our entertainment room includes a satellite television, DVD, music system and a Playstation. There are over 200 DVDs, as well as many CDs for your entertainment. Comfortably decorated in shades of green, the surround seating and futon mattress make it hard to leave this comfortable viewing room.

The bathroom conveniently situated next to the entertainment room is also used as a pool bathroom. Like all the bathrooms at Villa Pantulan, it has its own exterior garden.
