About Alam Bulan Villa

Based in Santa Fe New Mexico, I have always had a passionate interest in art, music and culture. After many years of extensive traveling my interests have grown to include many other cultures and especially the spirituality of Bali

Alam Bulan Villa purchased this villa in 2013

Why Alam Bulan Villa chose Gianyar Regency

I have traveled to the area for many years and became enamored with the culture, people and beauty of the land---and Tengkulak Kaja chose me

What makes this villa unique

After a fun day of adventure, sightseeing and shopping, you can return to a peaceful oasis where your senses are filled with gentle breezes, flowing water and the hum of the jungle

Alam Bulan surpassed our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book a stay at this magnificent home. The design and decor are exquisite and the caring staff make your stay so memorable. You will feel instantly at home the moment you arrive and you will probably shed a tear when you leave - it really does have that affect on you. We have visited Bali previously but chose to stay in 5-star resorts both in Ubud and also at Jimbaran. For this trip we wanted something special and to be immersed in Balinese culture away from tourists. By picking this villa we were able to enjoy local village surroundings, meet people on our street and get to truly understand the Balinese way of life which sometimes can not be experienced from the confines of a luxury 5-star resort. For this one week booking we were a party of four: me, my brother and our respective spouses. Taking a villa this large for only 4 persons is the right thing to do if you desire additional space and luxury features. However Alam Bulan can easily accommodate 8 persons. The thoughtful design offers tremendous separation of space allowing each guest privacy and a grand living room where we could all meet and socialize. The villa excels at each turn whether it be the dramatic living room which opens to a large swimming pool, the sounds of the jungle or the separate sala where we would have private yoga classes. Purely magical is a descriptor that comes to mind when recalling our time on Bali. Puriana, the villa manager, was the consummate host who made suggestions for things to see and experience during our stay. He toured us through some wonderful places on the island and we felt we had experienced Bali in a special way. One evening at the villa we had a traditional Balinese event 'come to us'. How amazing is that? Puriana arranged for local dancers and musicians to come and perform and it was a pleasure to meet these lovely people and experience the entertainment. Twenty musicians and approximately ten dancers entertained us while a specially invited chef and his team prepared a sumptuous traditional dinner which we enjoyed in the Sala away from the main house. Candles, lanterns and flowers were everywhere. It will be a night we remember for always. It felt good to support the local community and we highly recommend you doing the same when you stay here. The cost of this evening is well worth it and may we suggest you make a donation to the local community as part of your experience. They will certainly appreciate it.

Owner's Response: Thank you from the heart-sukesma- for such a glowing review! I know the staff is grateful for the honor of sharing with your family an authentic Balinese holiday. I agree that Puriana and his staff makes the Alam Bulan Villa experience personal, intimate and un-touristy. It took a great architect Yamaputra and great interior designer Terje Arnesen to create the magical atmosphere in the lush surroundings to complete the experience. We love our local families and community and receive joy when guests make a lasting impression by connecting with the community and Balinese life. Puriana and the Alam Bulan Villa Family (this now includes you) shall bask in the glow of the good karmic energy you all brought to Alam Bulan Villa. Sampai Jumpa Lagi Until next time....

A month in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a remarkable adventure in Bali. We were fortunate to select Alum Bulan as our home for our 30 day stay. After a 30 hour trip from the USA we were met at the airport by Komang, the villa manager, whose genuine welcoming manner made us feel right at home from the start. Even though it was late at night, the entire staff greeted us upon our arrival at the villa with a traditional welcome drink and made sure we were comfortable after our tiring journey.

The villa is magnificent, beautifully designed, immaculate, and comfortable for relaxing and entertaining and a welcome home to return to after a day of sightseeing or shopping. The gardens are beautifully designed also and cared for daily, with fresh flowers throughout the villa.

Komang, the villa manager, was always there to help us with any sightseeing, shopping, reservations or anything we needed for the entire stay. His knowledge and love of the Balinese life and culture is incredible. You will have no better tour guide. He will arrange tours, shopping excursions, reservations or entertainment in the villa.

Breakfasts are wonderful. The chefs are happy to prepare Balinese specialties or menus to suit your preferences. We thought the fruit selections were incredible, many of which we had never eaten before. The entire staff is cheerfully accommodating. They are always anxious to please.

We hope to return to Bali some day, and we will definitely stay at the Villa Alum Bulan.

Owner's Response: Suksema! (thank you from the heart) Your kindhearted words are very much appreciated by Puriana and the Staff. Alam Bulan Villa clearly has a caring team who have a genuine interest in the guests they host and sharing their Balinese culture and hospitality. Good Karma! I give full credit and honor to the natural beauty of the surrounding area along with the staff and community; for together they created the atmosphere for your remarkable adventure. We all look forward to your next visit as you are now Alam Bulan Villa Family! Kindest Regards, Kathleen and Alam Bulan Villa Staff

Quite simply - phenomenal.

  • 5 of 5

Yes, you want this villa. Even though the pictures are great, they don't capture how truly stunning this place is. It's a five star experience. The villa is secluded in the jungle (yet a short 10-15 minutes from Ubud central), and every aspect of the design of the place is extremely sophisticated and first class. Puriana and the staff are incredible - there was nothing we wanted for, and they were ready to assist us with our own plans or to recommend ideas and organize any and all the details for us. Whether you want to see the cultural sites, find the best shopping, do outdoors-y stuff or see real, local Bali (all of which we did during our too-short 6 days), Puriana really is the man for the job. The only problem is motivating to leave the luxury of the villa!

Much thought went into the architecture (Yamaputra) and design (New Deal Home) so that guests may experience elegance and comfort Balinese style.

We hope to see you again one day at Alam Bulan Villa. Sampai jumpa (until next time) Kathleen and Alam Bulan Villa Staff

Amazing Stay and Exceptional Staff!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to explain how beautiful and peaceful this piece of paradise is. Not just the architecture and furnishings of the villa, but the thoughtful care the house staff provides is second to none. Puriana is exceptional with his knowledge of Bali and really listened to understand what we wanted for our experience in Ubud. The highlight of our 15 day trip was spent with Puriana, who arranged for a tour of his village, painting lessons and silver making classes for my family and our friends. Puriana and the Alam Butan family took amazing care of us and I think of them often. Thank you for making my family's experience unforgettable - we have definitely made a lifelong friend and hope to visit again soon! Greatful beyond words! Cheers!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa is exquisite—gorgeous decorative details everywhere! It was so nice to stay in a place where everything was new and up-to-date and aesthetically pleasing. The owner and decorators have definitely succeeded in achieving the perfect blend of modern and clean with traditional Balinese. I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Ubud area. Comfortable beds, inviting pool, plenty of space, a dedicated sacred space for yoga or meditation, enormous well-appointed bathrooms and closets . . . I could go on and on! As a huge added bonus, the villa manager and guide, Puriana, was the best host we could've asked for. I especially appreciated his thoughtful explanations of the Balinese Hindu culture and belief system. He and the rest of the staff were eager to accommodate our every desire. I'm so glad we chose this villa!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your holiday at Alam Bulan Villa. We (staff and owner) also love the beautiful design of the interiors and its freshness which celebrates a Balinese open design in a contemporary form. Terje of New Deal Home was the creative force behind the interior design of beauty, flow and comfort. Love of his community and culture always shows through Puriana's cultural tours along with his explanations. We are grateful we have Puriana, a licensed tour operator as the Manager of the Alam Bulan Team. The staff delighted in hosting your visit and was happy to share Bali with your family. We hope you return again one day, the carved wood doors will be open for you. Kathleen and Alam Bulan Villa Staff

A SCENIC JEWEL BOX

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Alam Bulan is a scenic jewel box of delight tucked away in a lush jungle setting in Ubud, Bali. We were greeted in Denpasar by the very friendly and knowledgeable driver Komang Puriana, who welcomed us with beautiful frangipani necklaces and refreshing jasmine-scented towels. After a long flight from San Francisco to our honeymoon destination in Bali, this was exactly what us newlyweds needed to start our two week adventure!

When we arrived at the Villa we were overwhelmed by the elegant decor and the friendliness of the staff, who were waiting for us with open arms and two tall glasses of refreshing ginger welcome punch. What a beautiful, tranquil place! Villa Alam Bulan was the perfect choice for our honeymoon: romantic, private and luxurious, but unpretentious. The location was perfect- just a short drive from the town and many temples, cultural sites and artisan shops.

Every morning we were served luscious exotic fruit and the excursions were fantastic. Most days the only tough part was how to tear ourselves away from the infinity pool and the calm, meditative atmosphere.

This was a deeply serene and loving environment. Thank you so much!
