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

A gem in Bali

  • 5 of 5

We spent those days with the family in Alam Bulan and we enjoyed a magic surrounding, where an exceptional team has been taking care of us every second. They made a reality every single wish and they have superated all of our expectatives. The house, a treasure into the jungle with a team that couldn't be better! Our best friend Mr. Puriana, a master! He made us feeling the most authentic Bali. Thank you Puriana!

Thank you all, Ketut, Ngurah, Surya, Eguk and Nyoman for make it happen!!

We will come back, of course we will come back!!

Gorgeous and peaceful with the most amazing staff ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the villa!! I came with my family of six people and it was the perfect place to stay. The villa itself is gorgeous, lush, and peaceful. You truly get the Ubud vibe while there with 5 star accommodations. The best part of the stay however was the staff which are truly the most friendly, accommodating people I have ever met. They went above and beyond to take care of my family and every need was met. The staff would anticipate something we might need or want and it would be there. The breakfast every morning was absolutely amazing. Komang, the house manager, helped us arrange any activities we wanted to do, drove us wherever we needed to go and a few days was a tour guide for us. He made everything easy and seamless. My aunt even wanted wine one night and he went out to purchase it for her. My family has done quite a bit of traveling and they all agree that this was one of the nicest places they have ever stayed. I would recommend this villa to anyone coming to Ubud. Thank you Komang and staff for and EXCELLENT stay!!!

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

I was in Bali with my husband and our three sons for ten nights. We stayed for five nights in Alam Bulan and then moved to Nusa Dua. Once we were in Nusa Dua, we pined for the beauty and serenity of Alam Bulan. The villa had everything we needed and also everything that we wanted. The staff was appropriately attentive, somehow always being there when I wanted tea, while also giving us privacy. The breakfast was always a treat--we had only Indonesian food which is delicious. Mr. Komong made sure every detail was taken care of and he made it all effortless. And the villa was comfy and spacious and luxurious. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We have been to Bali many times and this place is special. We will return.

5 stars service in a paradise setting

  • 5 of 5

Perfection. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the beauty of the villa and its surroundings. It felt like heaven on earth and the Alam Bulan villa team provided an incomparable level of service. They were extremely attentive to our every needs and they surpassed all our expectations. Puriana, the villa manager, has a profound knowledge of Balinese culture and he shared it with us in a very generous way. We were cared like we were family and this made our week so special. We will forever keep this experience in our hearts.

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this 10 day holiday near Ubud Bali was exceptional. The house, pool and furnishings are incredibly beautiful and comfortable. What was most important was the care that the staff provided us. Every one of our needs were taken care of. The house manager, Komang Puriana took us daily to see the sights of Bali...museums, shops, galleries, rice fields and most importantly the surrounding temples. His knowledge of customs, traditions and history is unprecedented. We really felt we experienced the people and customs of the Balinese people. We have travelled extensively and this trip affected me most profoundly.

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....
