Dara Ayu Villas & Spa is a new boutique resort located near Ubud, Bali’s famous art and culture centre. It is set in its own valley so whichever villa you choose you have the magnificent views of the surrounding rice paddies below your deck.
It is especially suitable for couples wanting to celebrate those special occasions like a wedding anniversary, honeymoon or their love for each other. Elements of mother earth are present at Dara Ayu – rock formation, water features including Bali famed subak (rice field irrigation system), wood, fire and of course the ever so refreshing mountain breezes. Your senses are awaken by the stunning views, the sound of the night orchestra of forest insects, the smell of herb and spices from our kitchen and the many sweet smelling flowers growing at the resort. Each villa is architecturally designed and landscaped in a way that provides a complete harmony with the surrounding natural beauty.
Landscaped around a water theme featuring winding paths through the rice paddies, Dara Ayu’s 4 villas are the culmination of the owners’ dreams and the combined work of art of a Balinese architect, landscape designer and builder. Each villa is uniquely designed to take full advantage of the immaculate terraces of rice paddies for which Bali is renowned and for which Dara Ayu is privileged to share with its discerning guests.
All villas are characterised by soaring high roofs and iron hardwood timber decks built around an infinity pool. These decks are a perfect place to relax during the day or to enjoy the setting sun in the short tropical evening and at night the glow of the fireflies, twinkling village lights and the bright stars above. You can also enjoy private meals here brought to you by our friendly and dedicated staff.
All rooms feature floor to ceiling folding merbau hardwood framed glass door which when fully open provide breathtaking views of the surrounding natural beauty. A key feature of all the rooms is an outdoor bathroom with sunken stone bath landscaped artistically to create a feeling of privacy and romance.
The interior decorations in all the rooms are highlighted by many pieces of custom built wooden furniture made from high quality solid soar, merbau or teak wood. The wooden furnishing includes king size beds, spacious wardrobes, coffee tables and chairs.
Whether you stay in a room or a villa, you will have a dedicated butler who will assist with all your needs from the time you step into Dara Ayu until the time of your departure.

In tune with the meaning of Dara Ayu, Beautiful Lady, each villa is named after goddesses in Hindu epic who are praised for their beauty.
