Spiritual Retreat

Nestled into the slopes of Ubud’s picturesque Sayan Ridge stands Bud Hart’s Villa Hartland Estate. Though they’re newly constructed, the private vacation villas meld and blend into the incredible landscape. The property’s four spacious suites – the Joglo Master Suite, Teak House, Java House and Colonial Cottage – look as if they’ve always been there.


Each suite is equipped with a spacious double bedroom, a luxurious bathroom and a large wooden deck with an outdoor lounging area from which to admire the mesmerising views across the Ayung River, the rice fields and the lush tropical mountains beyond. As if that wasn’t alluring enough, each suite has its own private space surrounded by an extensive garden. The suites are connected by winding pathways, drenched in greenery and orchids, with fluttering butterflies and chirping birds making the setting seem as if it’s carved out of a tropical fairy tale.
